    "The narrating could be better"
    Any additional comments?

    The narrator makes the love scenes seem comical. I read the first part of the book and it did not seem ridiculous yet when Justine Eyre reads it, I laughed. I like her reading the rest of the book but the love scenes…not so much.

    "Terrible Narrator"

    I am abandoning this half way through - I just can't get past the narrator. She sounds like an elderly lady and this book calls for a younger sounding voice. The story sounds like it could be good but I can't concentrate on it because of the narration.

    "Pretty Good Book"

    This was an interesting book. I loved the action and the plot. The mystery was in depth and full of twists and turns. I didn’t see the end coming, and I was a little surprised by who the killer was. I had my eye on two different people for the fear induced murders, but I was wrong. I was intrigued and full of anxiety for the people involved. I kept thinking, no, not this person, or the person, and was really glad to have a good ending even though some of it was a little messed up at the end. I was like really, this happened, and then I was relieved when it all turned out well.

    The only complaint I truly have about this book is all the sexual action. I don’t usually have trouble with sensuality and sex in novels, but it seemed like this book and the others after it was full of sex. It’s kind of hard to accept a sexual relationship between people who don’t really know each other. I think the problem was the fact that there was no build up, no real tension, no relationship building until after the characters had engaged in the act. Not to mention, I like to get to know characters well before all the intimacy starts. It makes me understand the interplay and the interest that is there. It also makes me understand why a couple begin to care for each other and share an act that I often associate with caring if not love. Maybe I’m a little naïve and old fashion, but I think that’s the way it should be even in books :).

    The reader was good. I loved her intonations and the way she builds the characters with her voice and reading abilities.

    Overall, it was a good book and I was so ready to start the next book that I forgot to write the review before I started the next book.

    "Terrible Narrator"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book would be enjoyable if there was a different narrator. She makes the characters sound ignorant with you fake southern accent. I would not recommend this book. I am sorry I bought all 3 of them.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Plot was great


    How could the performance have been better?

    A different narrator


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

    The book was not good enought to make up for the shorcomings of the narrator

    "Fifty shades of Deadly Fear"
    Any additional comments?

    The thriller aspect of the book was good-nice plot. It really should be categorized as a romantic/erotic thriller. The amount of sex was kind of silly and comprised 50% of the narrative. I found the numerous descriptors of male genitalia entertaining, especially compared to the fact only one was used for it's female counterpart(her "sex").
    And really....erotic thriller? To each their own I guess.

    "Great New Series"

    Just what I was looking for in a new series. Could not put it down once I started. Can't wait to listen to the next book in the series.
