Yes, if it is part of the KGI series - this series....NO.
Not as much as some of the other characters - particularly Jordan. Even though he redeemed himself a bit at the end. Not enough to make me like him. Too murky/gray in his motives. Too cold. He was willing to allow agents to be used and abused for the greater "good." Yikes, he was creepy to me.
I was very, very disappointed in this book. While the plot was good - there was too many wasted scenes trying to get to the plot. I don't mind gritty and I don't mind suspense, but I DO NOT like characters that are supposed to be the good guys coming across almost as disgusting as the bad guy. Jordan really turned me off and although he was a secondary character - I found it hard to believe this "team" was a team at all. They mostly came across as cold and dispassionate. As much as I enjoy a good steamy romance - this one was over the top - headed to raunchy. Plus, it came across that the multiple sex scenes were the author's attempt to cover all positions/ways they could do it. It did not always enhance the characters or the story. It just seemed excessively gratuitous. The KGI series is much, much better.
I really enjoyed this book! Great characters, location, storyline and narration. It all works great!!
Cynthia Eden knows how to write romantic suspense! Better yet, smart and strong female characters. I get so frustrated with writers who make their main female leads dumb as bricks - doing stupid things just to advance the plot. This book has it all, creepy, scary bad guy, strong, sexy good guy and very smart, believable female lead!! I haven't even finished listening and I just gotta say - it's great!! Also, very very good narration!
I'm 1/2 way thru what is a great storyline...but I honestly don't know if I can finish it because the narration is so bad! Who really talks like that - she chews the words! For a lack of a better description. It is extremely distracting - it constantly pulls me out of the story. Before you buy this book - be sure to listen to the sample listen.
I am glad I took the chance and got this book. I have really grown tired of the Arcane series and to an extent the Rainshadow series. This book is a complete standalone - straight romantic-suspense. Loved it!
This book is mostly some sex scenes with a very minor plot woven in. Not my taste. I want a lot more substance to a book than this.
This is an outstanding series. Love the characters, the ongoing plots, the new plots....great job!!
I get it - technically speaking - good writing. However - no interest in reading about HOPELESS romance. Way to close to real life for me. Sorry - too depressing for words. I don't want to be depressed at hopeless love - I can do that on my own time. I don't read ROMANTIC Suspense to be depressed. Big disappointment.
There is a reason I haven't gotten the last couple of Lori Foster books - this book reminded me why. The last half a dozen or so of her books - the female lead character has just become dumber and dumber. This one about takes the cake. And our hero? Well he and his good buddy (another future hero in another book to come) are in a scene where Mr. Hero of this book KO's one of the bad guys that is threatening the dumb chick that put herself in danger - even though she is supposedly being stalked - because hey - she needed some fresh air and time to regroup after believing a bunch of crap told to her by a chick that was after her man (And who does she believe? The man who has consistently shown his honor and intentions toward her. Uhh...no...she believes the jealous chick. Yeah - that makes sense). But, I digress, so the two hero-guys are in this scene - the good guy #1 has knocked out the bad guy and the other good guy is hanging around to see if everything is cool. So good guy #1 starts making out with the little lady and hero #2 seems to be fascinated with that. Meanwhile, the bad guy comes around and since no one seems to be paying attention to him, takes off and eludes the cops.
I have said it before and it bears repeating. If the main characters have to do really bone-headed things to advance a plot - in my opinion - that is lazy writing.
As regards the men in this book - I actually like the hero quite a bit. However, hero #2 - Army - talk about a jerk. Can't keep it in his pants - and seems to be obsessed with being as perverse in his pursuits as possible. Don't know if skanky is really a guy word - but it really fits him.
So, at this point I am waving the white flag on the absurdity of this sort-of plot. Nothing worse than dumb characters. Save yourself a credit on this one. Wait for a Linda Howard or Nora Roberts book. Those two NEVER write a dumb female lead character!
Maybe - pretty bad narration on this one.
Probably. I waited so long to finally have Aiden and Cordi's story. Love this series. Only problem with this one was the big "climax" of the story was too distant and removed from the main characters. Didn't get that - sort of anti-climatic at the end of the day b
Someone a lot better with male voices and accents. Pretty bad.
I want to see the characters continue.
A little disappointed - maybe after the long wait for this book - too much expectation. Really think the main characters should have been more involved with the final takedown.
Still listening- the MAJOR problem is the dual narration. HATE IT!! Arghh- it continually interrupts a great story. At times -so frustrating. I would probably love this book otherwise. If not for the LOUSY narration.
LOUSY dual narration. Constantly pulls you out of the story.
N/A. ONE NARRARATOR!!!!
Uhmm - heck no
Probably a good book - LOUSY NARRATION.
