Let me begin by saying that I don't read books without sex in them. That being said I have to admit that this book had way too much. I did find myself skimming past the sex after the first 2 times just to get to the story. AND it was a terrific story. I really liked John and Mariah, loved Vivien Manning and all the secondary characters, with the exception of Rycroft, he was a perfect bad guy that I loved to hate. An excellent read. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 was because the over abundance of sex overpowered the storyline somewhat.
As to the narrator..She wasn't the worst I've ever heard but she wasn't the best either. She really didn't do the male voices all that well. I wouldn't go out of my way to listen to her but if a book sounded good I'd listen to again.
I really did enjoy this but it would have been better if it had had about 100 more pages. Everything happened so fast and then it was over.
I did like Jason and Michelle. And I liked Zach, too. And the 2 scum-bags got what they deserved.
As to the narrator: He was absolutely awful. If you like your heroine to sound just like the hero then you'll like this book. Personally, I don't like my heroines to sound like men. He didn't even try to sound a little feminine. I would never listen to Alan Taylor again. I listened for a few minutes, hoping Michelle would start to sound better but she never did so I just finished the book by reading it.
I'll finish this book by just reading it. I gave it 3 stars because the story was good, even though I haven't finished it yet, but the narration sucked. I'll leave my review on Amazon when I finish reading it. She didn't even attempt to sound like a man. She just read the book. I looked at the other books she narrated and should have known for them not to buy this. I'll know better the next time. This is a shame for the authors to have to suffer the loss of sales because the narrator was awful.
This was a real entertaining read. The minute you thought the stalker was found-out, he wasn't.
I liked Josh and Abby. He was a little disbelieving at first but he came around. And I liked how they fell in love
slowly, rather than falling in love after 3 seconds. I do hate it when the hero and heroine fall in love as soon as they meet.
I liked Laura and Kim, too. They were such good friends. And Maddie was a nice kid. Colin was a real self-centered jerk.
There was good sexual tension and sex in this book. Which made it all the better.
I got this book free with my KindleUnlimited but I would have no problem paying for it. And the audible was free too. I like to just read along.
As to the narrator: She was good. Not great but I would listen to her again. She didn't do a real good job on the men's voices but they were ok.
I don't get it. Why so many 4 and 5 star reviews? I'm at 50% and I'm not sure I going to go any further. These two act like they are still teenagers. Every time you turn around they're arguing about something that happened when they were young. It's just stupid and goes on and on AND she just keeps doing things she knows will pi** him off. They are both so immature it's not funny. And for her to bring all those dogs into his big beautiful house and think nothing of them crapping all over is even more insane. This book is just to stupid for me.
As to the narrator: Ms. Marlo is always a pleasure to listen to. She gives her characters their own personalities and voices. She's an awesome narrator.
297 good reviews compared to 24 bad reviews on Amazon. Go figure!!
I happened to have loved all three of these books. I really liked Danny and Mandy and I thought Bill was written very well. I was sorry about Jed. But I was glad for Ken and Hunter and the others. Nathan was just as sick as his uncle Aaron. I wasn't surprised about who his assisstant was. It's a good series..
As to the narrator: I definately had to skip over the love scenes since Mandy sounded so much like a man. And the narrator had no emotion in his voice at all. I couldn't possibly listen to him again. Sorry..
Really good book. Love, love, loved Reed and Jayne. And there was just enough angst for it not to get stupid with it.
AND Scott was just awesome!!! A 17 year old that wasn't a complete and total jerk. Authors who make their teen asses aren't doing themselves any favors.
I was sorry about Hugh and really saw no point in that happening. Doug Lang was a miserable wretch. And I was glad that Jed didn't die. Nathan and his uncle Aaron were really whacked.
A great read with just enough sexual tension and sex to make it interesting.
As to the narrator: Ummm.. What can I say? He wasn't really horrible but his womens voices did kinda suck. I wouldn't go out of my way to listen to him again but I wouldn't NOT buy a book because he's the narrator, either.
What a really great read. A wonderful addition to the Montgomery Justice series. Loved Gabe and Deb. Loved Ashley, she was one brave 16 year old. Liked Floyd, Mylo and Niko. I even liked Ernie and was sorry when he was killed but not surprised. And I was so surprised at the appearance of a character from In Her Sights (not telling you who.) As to the bad guys, Jeff Gasmerati, The Warden (one sick puppy), Sheriff Tower and the Russian? They all got exactly what they deserved. This was a real page turner and I was up until 3:00am reading it and then finished it today while I had my morning coffee. It's just a shame that Ms. Perini takes a year or more to write the next book. Had I known that I truly doubt I would have started the series. I really need to pay better attention when I start a series and make sure all the books are out before I start them. By the time the next book comes out I will have forgotten what the others' were about. Bummer.. None of the books are cliffhangers but you have to keep reading if you want to know about each Montgomery man. So, another 3 years before the six brothers have their own book. And then there's Whitney, the half sister, so maybe 4 years. That's way to much waiting so this one is it for me.
As to the narrator: This is the first time I've listened to Todd Haberkorn but I would definitely listen to him again. He did a great job on the voices and he had terrific emotions. He laughed, murmured, whispered, yelled, you name it and he did it. Just like a narrator aught to do.
Loved this book. A lot of the lower reviews didn't like it because it wasn't "believable." Really? Do we really have to have a FICTIONAL mystery/romance NOVEL be believable? If I want believable I'll just pop over to the non-fiction. I know a lot of you don't like the "jumping around" but I do. I get tired of just the hero and heroine being on every single page and reading all about their angsty feelings all the time.
I liked the few minutes of Khalid, that murderous creep. And Farzam, that insane creep. The attempt by the two pilots. The time spent with that killer Brad Walters. All this helped to keep me turning pages to see what would happen next.
All the Montgomery's, Zach, Gabe, Seth, Luke, Jazz, Caleb and Anna were fantastic. And I was so happy for John and Anna, too.
Zach and Jenna were an awesome twosome and I thought Sam acted like any normal 5 year old.
So, I'm off to read Gabe's story, Game of Fear. I know I'll like it as much as I did this one.
Oh, and this had just enough sexual tention and sex to make it a really good read.
As to the narrator: Mr. Podehl did a fantastic job. Not once did I cringe when he did a female's voice. I would definitely listen to him again.
I'm so glad I ignored the 32 one and two star reviews and went with the 376 four and five star reviews. I loved everything about this book. I especially loved Logan. What he went through with with Lovey-Dovey was just awful. I loved Dani, too. She was so strong and sassy and funny. Loved little Regan, too. Had some great secondary characters too: Maria, Buchanan, Ken and Barbie and poor Eli. And then there was Ballard! What a creep he was.
It had some nice sensual, sexual moments that were nicely written. I would definitely read this author again.
As to the narrators: They did a spectacular job and the voices. THAT being said,
I think the whole thing was just stupid! I was exicited to hear a male and female narrator, thinking she would read the female parts and he would do the males. Umm, NO!! They just took turns reading a chapter or a few paragraphs, doing both the males and females voices. WTH was the point in that, I ask you? It wouldn't stop me from listening to two narrators again but I just don't see why they would have two narrators for one book.
This was a pretty good murder mystery and love story, very sensual and sexual. I really liked Boyd and Hayden.
I liked Morgan and Grace, too. AND, oddly enough, I liked Josh, even though he was dead throughout the book.
I figured out who the killer was early on but it was still a good drama. I would recommend this book and read this author again.
As to the narrator: Alexander Cendese did a wonderful job. The men sounded like men and the women sounded like women. Every person had their own distinct voice. I would definitely listen to him again.
