This was my first Lori Foster romance - and the only one currently on audible. I enjoyed it as a short, inexpensive listen. It's typical romance novel fare with a happy ending - in this genre, it's all about the journey, which I found entertaining.
This book is actually part of a series - I figured that out from the characterizations of the hero's friends, and did some looking around. The others aren't available on audio, but Beguiled (Dane) and Wanton (Alec) come before, and Treat Her Right (Zack) and Mr. November (Josh) come after.
I liked the narrator for this book - I especially liked the voice he gave the hero, and how he kept all the characters separate and easy to follow. I hope he records the rest of this series. I find the narration can make or break any audio book, and this guy was real easy to listen to.
Lori Foster's characters were so believable it was refreshing, with the intensity of their emotions to the inadequite way they handled those emotions. The story wisked me from the daily grind.
Well if you like sex scenes than this book is for you! This is the first book I have read/listened to by Lori Foster and it was good - not great. It was very strange that the two main characters had never met but within 24 hours she was "taking care of him" wink..wink. Could have had a less predictable ending.
I'll admit I love anything by Lori Foster, but this has got to be one of the best. I stayed up all night listening to Mick's story. The narrator was perfect. You feel as if you are in Mick's head. You fall in love as he falls in love with the mysterious and lovely Delia. Is she a liar? Is she a thief? Is she the woman of his dreams despite her faults? This story was so hot it left me hungry for more. I actually listened to the best parts over and over. It is a sexy romance, and a fast paced thriller all rolled into one. Listen to the first chapter and I promise you'll get caught up in it too.
LOVED it! "Beguiled" introduces Mick as a 16 yr old boy. In"Caught in the Act",Mick is now the man he was meant to be, falling for the only woman that could captivate him body and soul. Your heart will ache... vivid characters and hot love scenes make you want to listen a second time. Highly recommend all 5 books. "Wanton" is my least favorite. 1. Beguiled 2. Wanton 3.Caught in the Act 4. Treat Her Right 5. Mr. November... download them all and listen in order.
loves non-fiction, memoir and biography or the classics.
This book was ok. It seemed a bit empty - like the plot was too simple and ultimately there were parts that went unexplained. If you're not looking for something phenomenal but just something to keep you company as you drive...it will do that.
I was not sure if I would like this book during the first chapter, then I could not put it down, listened to it in one day.
What an awesome story of maleness, love and acceptance. The love scenes were oolala. The story line was very different and added a different kind of mystery. The men in the story were full of testerone and I loved it. I was able to visualize each character. I thoroughly enjoyed it and have listened to it at least 3 times.
Okay book - EXCELLENT narrator!
Story was okay but the narrator made it up for the weak story.
The actual story was not bad, but was poorly written. Although the narrater had little to work with it could have been read with more emphasis on each character.
The first 3 chapters was what the cop wanted to do to Del, and what Del wanted to do to him. It was so slow, I didn't think I could finish it, but then decided to forward to the next chapter, listen a few minitutes and go to the next chapter...and doing it that way I was able to get the gist of what was happening and get through it.
Not enough voice fluctuation.
I would rewrite the whole thing. Rather than just going over and over how sexually attracted Del and Mick were to each other, I'd give a little background on the main characters, bring their lives up to date when they finally meet, so the listener would at least know something about the characters and maybe it wouldn't seem so unrealistic. It appeared the author needed to write a certain amount of chapters, so filled in with MUCH repitition, and no substance.
