  • Not Without Risk

    Story
    (46)

    It began as a day’s pleasure cruise on the crystal-clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico. But then Emily Marshall stumbled into a deadly maze of drug smuggling and murder—and discovered that the only person who could help her was the man who had once torn her heart to shreds.

    A User says: "Where did they find this narrator?"
    "Not worth my listening time"
    Overall

    The narrator pretty much ruined a mediocre story. There was very little inflection in the narrators voice to either bring out emotions of the characters and there was very little difference between the male/female voices.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I'm not sure if there is anything that could improve the book. Maybe a better narrator could give it a rating of 3


    Has Bonded by Blood turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I have listened to many books in this genre and enjoyed them very much.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Antonia Laury’s performances?

    I bought the first two of the Sweet Blood series and I'll listen to them because, what the hay, I did pay for them. I won't be buying anymore books in the series, however. The herroin was just abit too dumb and her counter part was about the same.


    What character would you cut from Bonded by Blood?

    None. The story needed all it could get.


    Any additional comments?

    The story was just too hokie for me. Perhaps Laurie London could take some writing tips from JR Ward (Black Dagger Brotherhood)..

  • Water Bound: A Sea Haven Novel

    Story

    The last thing Sid remembered was being enlisted to protect a vulnerable young woman in the coastal town of Sea Haven. Then, as if in some nightmare, he was lost in the swirling currents of the ocean, and sucked deeper into a freezing black eddy. Just as quickly, he was saved - pulled ashore by a beautiful stranger. Her name is Rikki, a sea-urchin diver in Sea Haven. Soon they will be bound by tantalizing secrets, which will engulf them both in a whirlpool of passion and danger.

    Angela says: "A new start with a dash of reunion"
    "good story/poor narration"
    Overall

    I did finish listening to the book but it was a struggle. The story is a good addition to the Drake Sisters series. The narrator's style, however, is more suited to childrens books. I hope someone persuads Angela Brazil not to narrate adult books... she ruins even a good story.

    Story
    (267)

    When history professor Alison Carter became a consultant to the film version of the Wild West legend she’d dedicated her career to researching, she couldn’t possibly have known that she would not only get a front-row seat to a full-blown Hollywood circus but would innocently witness something that would put her life in peril. Nor did she expect that a tall stranger in a cowboy hat would turn the movie — and her world — completely upside down.

    LeftyMom says: "Loved it!"
    "Pretty good story"
    Overall

    I almost didn't get past the first 1/2 hour on this one because Patrick Lawlor's voice was a bit too grading on my ears and nerves. I'm glad I persisted, however. I did get used to Lawlor's voice but feel the story would have been much better if Angela Dawe was the "only" reader.

    One moment, computer consultant Parker Hamilton was quietly programming in his house along the rugged Pacific coast. And the next, his life was thrown into a tailspin. He discovered he was a father. What would he do? What would he say to his daughter? Did she know the truth - that he hadn't known about her? And why was her beautiful aunt, Erin Ridgway, suddenly giving him the chance to be a full-time father?

    Robin says: "Disappointment"

    Overall

    This is the first Susan Mallery novel I didn't like; and the narrator made it even worse. The story line was week and the narrator's voice gave all the characters an air of unbelievability. Not worth the credit or cost.

  • Finders Keepers

    Story

    Finders Keepers is Jessie's story - the story of a child stolen from a loving home...of a woman lost in a life that is not her own...of a family shattered by an unspeakable crime. Jessie must rip the veil of every illusion before she can reclaim her life, and journey through a maze of heartbreak before she can find her way back to the place she can truly call home.

    Val says: "Fascinated"
    "The ending ruined the book"
    Overall

    This is the first Fern Michael's book I've read that disappointed me. Even though some parts were a bit drawn out, the overall story had merit... that is, until the end. I left that book feeling like I should never had started it.
