Caveat: I don't like improve TV shows, either. Starts off with a beautiful chapter about capital punishment, then moves into flashback mode. (You aspiring writers have, no doubt, done this exercise in your writing groups). Chapters written in such diverse styles don't hold together for a good listen. Might be a good read for aspiring thriller writers. Or, you might like "First Thrills," better. It's an anthology of thriller short stories written by hot-selling authors. It's also available at Audible.com. Please be sure to review it...only three POVs up so far.
Meg, the main character is delightfully offbeat. Dialogue is witty, setting is unique, themes are contemporary, and erotic scenes are well-written. Shannon Cochran really brings the story to life with her characterizations of the nasty Texas women that Meg has to cope with after her BFF leaves the town's mayor at the altar. Length is just right for the plot. No dead spots...listeners won't need to fast forward.
Very well-written argument for the authors' POV about the evolution of human sexuality. Authors claim we took a left turn with the advent of agriculture. Binobo or chimp--that it the question. It is well-researched and references several of my other favorite researchers, including Steven Pinker. It got a second "listen," and that is unusual for this audiophile.
Stephanie is a bit sexier in this book, but still does't own her own eroticism. She blames her new found sexual urges on getting the "evil" eye. Plenty of Ranger and just enough Lula. Nice plot twists...three people trying to kill Stephanie at the same time.
Redundant, preachy, hackneyed. After a character makes a two line statement, Ms. Steele seems to think she needs to write another two paragraphs to explain it to the reader. Danielle must have gotten paid by the word.
