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?

    "Drags"
    What would have made Shiver better?

    Storyline disjointed and rambling


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Cry No More - Linda Howard


    Did Shannon McManus do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    The reader did a good job with voices - she had child, female, male, foreign, etc.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Shiver?

    It really dragged during escape from initial capture and during the safe house.


    Any additional comments?

    I have really liked this author in the past and think this is just a fluke that this one dragged and was not the usual cliff hanger.

    "Dragging Descriptions"
    What did you like best about Shiver? What did you like least?

    I have read and listened to many books from Karen Robards and enjoyed them. This book has good elements of suspense and action but she goes into these long drawn out descriptions that slow the story and bore me to tears. I want to finish it but don't think I can stand anymore narrative. It feels like she was trying to add more pages to her book by repeating how the main characters are feeling over and over again. If you want to kill some time I would suggest this book.

    Story
    "Worst book I've ever listened to."
    What disappointed you about Shiver?

    The writing was sub par, using cliche after cliche, going on and on about the very same subjects over and over and ultimately offering no real substance for a cohesive story. I didn't know I was buying a romance book, but I'm sure they are better written than this. The books description made it out to be some kind of thriller. It wasn't, but I was still willing to give it a chance until about 1/3rd of the way through, when I just couldn't find anything enjoyable. I listened all the way through, but it never got better, only worse.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Shannon McManus’s performances?

    Shannon McManus wasn't too bad, but I don't think she really wanted to read this book either. I wouldn't avoid her, but I have no reason to seek out a performance by her because of anything in this book.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    This book had no redeeming qualities. As I said, it wouldn't even be good as a romance novel. The interplay between characters was forced and unrealistic. There was no romance, no substance, only a writer doing a poor job of filling space to pad a book.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't like to bad mouth art. I like to keep it positive and find the good in everything. Sometimes people like weird things and more power to them... but I honestly don't know how anyone could like this book. Listening to it was like having teeth pulled... from my brain.

    "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.

    This was a great book. It does start off a tad bit slow but it picks up. The narrator was good,no complaints. All in all a very enjoyable book.

    "Good mind fluff."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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


    Who was your favorite character and why?

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


    Have you listened to any of Shannon McManus’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


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

    Romantic with unexpected action
