Master Crais is at his very best on this one. My all time favorite, the watchman is being chased by this one and I am only on chapter 9
many different scenes get to you. Maggie getting a drink out of the big water bowl in the bathroom. Maggie protecting her Marine handler in chapter 1 had me in tears on the fwy.Our hero eating his first dinner with Maggie on the floor with her.
I am listening this first day I could download it
get any of Crais books read by James Daniels and David Stuart. I was most surprised by this reader MacLeod. He is just terrific and now joins the ranks of James Daniels. Luke Daniels did not do a good job on the last two of Crais books. Joe Pike story missed it when Luke read it. Get the Watchman. I own all of audio Crais. I hope you enjoy as much
as I have.
Sandra opens with a description of this classic core romance. If you love her current works, this is not it. S.B. first wrote as a romance writer with her stories having a H.E.A.E.
Cooper our hero, makes you want to go camping in the great outdoors.
when Cooper protects Rusty from raunchy father and son.
this is a classic I have re read in hard copy. Joyce Bean voice is a bit deeper in this recording than her 2008 reads and she is JUST wonderful in this book.
Joyce reads S.B. Witness and is fantastic. Try her read of Linda Howards Cry No More both are not to be missed.
this is an Old Classic from Linda Howard which is a top fave of mine, beware it was written in the 90's so read reviews.
this is a 90's story of family loyalty coupled with an Amazon adventure. If you like Linda's current work, then this is not it. Of course long time fans of L.H. know this is a must have novel to have in their library.
Tanya, AKA Tatitana Sokolov, recorded this story before she developed her current deeper voice reads. If you like her, then this will not disappoint, but it is NOT in her raspy deep voice.
yes, as this is a classic romance. NOT the F.S.O.G variety, but one that has humor and wit in the dialogue.
I purchased due to J.D. reading this book. I listened to #3 first as it was a later recording than book1. Both are good books and they do overlap so buy this one first. I had no idea who the main focus hero and heroine were going to be and this book was a delight, as it cleverly wove several pairs together to bring the story to light. I have to say #1 is a bit better than #3 so if you like this book, #3 will not disappoint.
I have purchased 4 of his books and After Dark is still my fave, but you will need a tissue if you like mystery romances. It is not a romance by far but a tale of deep obsession that goes too far. Both #1 & #3 are more of a saga mystery with lots of twists and turns. I love Angela Dawe male reading voice, hence After Dark.
Mr Davis is so great at breathing life into each character from our heroes down to each villain.
This story had lots of characters and Davis makes each character very distinct so you could listen and enjoy. I loved J.D. reading Sandra Browns Mean Streak and I have been downloading any good synopsis/listen that closely duplicates his pace and voice patterns from that book.
when our F.BI. agent reads Dana's file.
author's wit and humor comes across due to Jonathan Davis's delivery.
I have all of this series in my wish list due to J.Davis reading them. I love the connection between Angie and Patrick so I may not buy in released order. On the fence and I am depending on the book reviews as to the next to purchase. I like the summery for #6, but the reviewers are not happy that the wonderful J.Davis was requested to do a true Bostonian accent not used on this book. J.D. deep voice does not need to be in accented form! Not sure if this author is for me. I love the Karin Slaughter Will Trent series, but alas can not listen to them as the first couple for me were way too dark and scary. I am going to buy this author one read at a time, when I usually buy the entire series all at once. If the stories turn too dark, then no on this wonderful author.
I purchased this book due to J.D. reading it. I found this talented reader on Sandra Brown's Mean Streak and have become a great fan. Mr. Davis reading voice and pace are still the best in Mean Streak. I have been downloading new authors that J.D. reads trying to find as good a listen as Mean Streak,Note: Mystery/Romance,. J.D. makes our P.I. Partners outstanding in this book. Bubba and Detectives are very good as well. Lots of fun to hear them talking.
Thank you audible for listing book #1 on sale for $4.95. These sales are wonderful to get listeners into a new author or reader. How can we go wrong for the price!
This is a great series for the money! Cleaver, sexy and underneath a tenderness for a family. Each book is cleverly linked to another brother so you don't have to listen in the release order if you want to try one out. #1 is cleaver, but #2&3 are vying for first place for me. Each book shows enough of each brother that you can't wait for the next release.
For me this whole set of books about each brother is worth the money.
Ms white is my number #1 reader after the late great Anna Fields. Ms white's male reading voice is why I am a fan. She also delivers wit and humor like an author intended. Check out Julie James series, I own them all with Karen reading them. Listen to a few of her samples to see if you like her. Karen makes our hero Nate so hunky! Author has our hero "putting noodles on" showing what a care taker Nate is deep down.
Yup, it has been a long day. I waited patiently for #3 to be released. So worth the wait. The story follows the publishers' outline.
Audible please don't wait to record #4. This is a winner from this author and Karen white makes all the brothers as sexy and cleaver as a romance mystery should be for your loyal listeners.
Intense, Focused, and Funny. This is an intense thriller story, and you can miss the wonderful humorous lines if you are doing to many things while listening. "the Bear" has them, so listen for it.
Manny, the Bear. " He was big, burley, hairy and bald" with such a great sense of humor. Tough to be a detective and still have one! Our heroine is as spunky as they get and reader really brings her spunk to life.
I only purchased this story as I LOVE Angela's male reading voice. Yes, you have to get use to her cadence, but she brings to life any male character in a book. I love her in the Tiffany Snow series, Kade the bad boy is just as yummy as they get, and Angela really brings him to sexy life! A much lighter romance mystery than this author.
Oh yes, well ok every waking hour. Riveting and so fast paced. I listened to Plea of Insanity as that is read by my most fave reader Karen White. Again, her male voice is the best. If you like humor, check out Julie James series romance mysteries with Karen reading them.
The next book has comments i.e.: like Karin Slaughter, You must be hard core thriller fan, which I am not so this author may not be for me. Hence the Romance Mystery notes I have.
I don't think this author is for me. The length maybe just a bit too short and story develops like an outline to a series. Author did set you up for the next book. David Brenin is a wonderful narrator and brings our hero, Hunter to life. He does a fab job on all the ladies and outstanding on Taylor. His deep voice is as wonderful as Jonathan Davis reads. Check him out.
The sample was so intriguing and opened like Julie Garwood's Honor's Splendor. I like many short reads and this one had lots of promise, but I felt like author or editor tried to accomplish too much in the 5 hr listen. Make no mistake, this is a romance with suspense/sci fi under tone.
when our hero gets released from his chains.
I tried a few of the Lauren Donner stories that ran along this same theme. Those were just too underdeveloped and repetitive. Again not for me.
This had no reviews, but was a recent release. I did not buy the Enforcer, which had good reviews, but older listen. My mistake! I took a chance on this one, but this needed better editing. It had a good outline, but it also listened like outline. So much potential in the story and characters. More mystery maybe...it seemed to be missing the "macho" of the Seals. If you like tender men, then this is for you. If a listen is about the Seals, I want it as hunky as it can get. I would consider this a tender story. Not much mystery, ok suspense maybe, but a stretch. For me, it was not worth 9 hrs of precious listening time.
I love the genre, but this author may not be for me. I know a bit more editing could have made this fantastic. Wobbling on now trying the "Enforcer". That sample was not long enough to tell if author continues to have "tender heroes", which are not for me.
David got such great reviews, and he did a fab job on this listen. He brought all the characters to life.
Author wrote about Seals and there can be more books with each of the Seals. However If author writes with the same level of "tenderness", not for me. This book was not a mystery, and it missed on the erotic vain, so "Tender" sums it up. The suspense was some what there, but needed better editing.
I love the reader Karen White and I found this great mystery looking for her current read. I like a variety of Romance and Mystery. This book was a mystery first and had romance woven all through the book. This is NOT F.S.O.G type romance. Romance is subtle between H & H. The hero's siblings could have spin off stories the author could write as independents books, the tie being the family unit.
Clever outline from the author and reader made the whole story a non-stop listen.
I am a core romance listener and have been adding lots of mysteries to my library. Sandra Browns books are closest to this type of mystery, see Mean Streak.
All of the characters were given such life by Ms White voice. I love her male voices the best and when there is sarcasm from them, it is the best. See Julie James author for the best reads from K.W. Author Jill Shelves/ K.W. reads are very good as well.
YES, I did! I Iost some sleep over this good listen. Yes, I did figure out some of the clues, but hey isn't that what I am suppose to do? This is not a hard core mystery like Michael Connelly's but all the characters were good and added to this story. This has a large cast of females who add depth to this story and will not disappoint if you like mystery/romance type listens.
Ms Burton, please continue to have Karen read your work. A reader can make or break a listen.
I just started listening to this book and can tell it is a winner, dialogue is fast and story is moving quickly. Our hero has already melted my heart when he rescues John Doe dog.
Our heroine has a range of emotions and a sharp tongue for which she puts to good use, reader Karen White's best reading feature,.
Judith McNaught's Every Breath You Take. Same arrogant type hero/personality. I have listened to J.McN book at least 3 times, it is that good. All of Ms McNaught's books are classics!
I purchased this book as Karen White is one of my top readers and this book was a new release for her. See her Julie James series and Jill Shalvis animal series. Karen's male voice and her ability to bring out the wit of an author is her top feature. Listen to Julie James samples to see if you like K.W. Check out Rebecca Zanetti's series too. Karen knocks that out of the park.
I have not purchased book #1 as the reader sounds like Kathleen Early and #1 is the only book reader lists. If this author/story turns out to be terrific, then I will buy it. Author/Audible, please have Karen White read the next installment if there is one.
