    Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is back, packing a whole lot of attitude. This time around, she's on the trail of Kenny Mancuso, a boy from the working-class burg of Trenton, New Jersey, who has just shot his best friend. Fresh out of the Army and suspiciously wealthy, Mancuso's also distantly related to Joe Morelli, a vice cop with questionable ethics, a libido in permanent overdrive, and a habit of horning in on Stephanie's investigations.

    Would you try another book from Janet Evanovich and/or C. J. Critt?

    CJ Critt is not meant for Narrating books... Loralei King is perfect for the Stephanie Plum series. her character changes are amazing. C J Critt sounds like she is just suffering through these books and makes them boring.... love the series but these few with C J Critt are really hard to listen to. you get no chemistry from Ranger or Morelli and Stephanie would have rather read these in hard copy.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Janet Evanovich? Why or why not?

    yes love Janet Evanovich


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of C. J. Critt?

    Love Loralei King she was and is the perfect Narrator.


    Did Two for the Dough inspire you to do anything?

    I just wanted the whole series but hated the narration

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    luckily I am driving while listening to my audio books or I would have said totally wasted my time. Saw too many similarities story line as the 50 shades books.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kristin Mayer again?

    will listen to the other 2 in the series and hope for better.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Nelson Hobbs and Shirl Rae ?

    the narrators had no emotion put nothing into this to enhance the story. Mickey and Minnie would have done a better job.


    Could you see Trust Me being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    never

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Gamble to be better than the print version?

    Was pleasantly surprised this wasn't the normal romance novel. Loved the towns people made me feel like I knew them all. Enjoyed the small stories in the middle of the main storyline. Really enjoyed this book. Looking forward to the next book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    narrator was fantastic


    Have you listened to any of Emma Taylor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    1st time with this narrator


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Didn't cry but did hitting every other emotion. Love mysteries I can usually guess the characters involvement so when we got to it I didn't expect this one and was happy it took a yet another turn.

    What would you give up for everything? Tristan Stone was powerful, commanding, and sex incarnate. And he wore it all so well. From the moment his mesmerizing gaze met mine, I had no choice but surrender to everything he was. His power. His decadence. His passion. He was all I never knew I needed. He wanted to possess me, and I wanted to be his everything. All I had to do was accept what he offered. But everything has a price.

    Veronica Meunch's voice should not be narrating
    She sounded like someone clogged cotton up her nose for all 3 books. She is awful to listen to.
