Shiver | [Karen Robards]

Shiver

If driving a piece-of-crap tow truck through the seediest part of town with a Smith & Wesson beside her means putting a roof over her son’s head, then Samantha Jones is going to be the best damn repo woman on the books. The streetwalkers, the drug pushers, the bands of looking-for-trouble punks haunting the mean streets at midnight don’t intimidate her. These are her people. The guy she finds bound and bloodied in the trunk of her latest conquest, a flashy new BMW, is a different breed entirely.

Publisher's Summary

If driving a piece-of-crap tow truck through the seediest part of town with a Smith & Wesson beside her means putting a roof over her son’s head, then Samantha Jones is going to be the best damn repo woman on the books. The streetwalkers, the drug pushers, the bands of looking-for-trouble punks haunting the mean streets at midnight don’t intimidate her. These are her people. The guy she finds bound and bloodied in the trunk of her latest conquest, a flashy new BMW, is a different breed entirely.

Daniel Panterro was certain he was going to die. Instead, by a stroke of luck, he was beaten to within an inch of his life and left for dead. But if he’s having a bad day, Sam’s day is about to get way worse. Danny knows he hasn’t seen the last of the vicious drug runners who kidnapped him from protective custody. His only recourse is to take his pretty savior hostage and force her to help him. There’s no going back for Sam and her four-year-old son, Tyler. They’re in way too deep.

With ruthless killers stalking their trail, Sam’s only choice is to trust this handsome, menacing stranger. But as she relinquishes control, Sam feels an unmistakable desire. Could she be tempted by Danny, who seems intent on protecting her and Tyler from even his own darkest secrets? And what is the price of falling in love with a man who operates on the edge of danger — her heart, her life... or both?

    Story
    "Predictible repetitive mess"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better story line, better writing and more character development. I could see the ending coming a mile away...


    What was most disappointing about Karen Robards’s story?

    This book had so much promise in the first two chapters but the subsequent story line was very weak and very predictable. The author over used phrases such as "blood ran cold" and spoke in cliches too often for my liking. It just seemed like the author phoned it in and added and gratuitous "lust" story in an attempt to keep readers engaged.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The reader was a young woman with a flat tone. She didn't really add anything to the performance of this book. Her scared voice was the same as her happy voice was the same as her lusty voice.


    What character would you cut from Shiver?

    Not sure which one I would keep...


    Any additional comments?

    To potential readers: if you are looking for something light and easy to read this book is for you. If you are looking for something to really draw you in and give you an experience - keep shopping.

    Depends on the friend. Not a substantial story, so not for everyone.

    Tray but he had several names through the book. He was a romantic.

    no


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Romantic with unexpected action

    I read everything except inspirational fiction and horror. I love romantic suspense, Young adult, paranormal, fantasy and mainstream fiction.

    "The end felt rushed, but a solid story."
    If you could sum up Shiver in three words, what would they be?

    Romantic and fast pace.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Karen Robards? Why or why not?

    I'd buy another book from Ms. Robards because she delivers a good, solid story.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was Samantha attempting to get away from Danny and the marshals by ramming their cars with her Repo truck.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Lots of action and sexy.

    "Irrelevant and Redundant"

    I found this book to be a total waste of my time. I bought into the high star ratings and totally regret the purchase. The book had more details than needed, more like a filler.

    I found nothing interesting about the story or the plot. It took over 2 hours just to get past the first part of the book.

    The narrator has a nice sound to her voice, but she sounds like a computer, so that may be why this book dragged on and on and on an on... and you know what's next? On and on and on and on... yep that's what the book felt like.

    This book is predictable, boring, slow and just one of the worst things I have wasted a credit on in a long time.

    I was really hoping for a good book.
