Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over 10 years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows that her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire - and suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.

    "Predicable"

    This is my first book by this author. The narrator did a good job. The story line was slow, and midway through, it became. The plot was pretty good, but the book failed to hold my overall interest.

    "Not convinced"

    I had not realised at first that this book is set in the future, if I had I probably would not have taken it. The plot itself was not bad, but definately not great either. The futurustic setting make it harder to believe and is distracting. I am not convinced by this book and I hesitate to buy another one of these. The narrater is ok though.

    "Future cop"

    What the synopsis of this book fails to reveal is that this book is "some where in the future." It is half sci-fi and half cop thriller. Not a good mix, and I am really disappointed in Audible for not clarifying that in its description.

    "Not so much"

    I really tried to like this book. I'm always on the lookout for new mystery writers and I'm not adverse to a little heat and romance being added to the mix, but this was far too disappointing to even get through the first half. I, unfortunately, read a lot of the readers comments only after I'd bought and started the book. All of those that have rated it one or two stars are right on point as far as I'm concerned. The futuristic setting is laughable. More than once I've found myself shaking my head at the lady detective's instincts and actions, which can only be described as ludicrous. And she's supposed to be the best?! I'm sorry, but if J.D. Robb can get published, who can't! If you like intelligent, cleverly plotted mysteries or detective thrillers, stay away from this one whatever you do. Stay far-far away.

    "My first JD Robb Novel."

    I like the idea of futuristic detective novels but it is mostly a romance novel with a theme. I may read more but I'm not sure.

    "Plain awful."

    Boring. Shallow. Vapid... and those are the good parts. (Really, Audible requires 15 words?! There's nothing more so say.)

    "Brutality and Rape, not entertainment"

    Nowhere in Audiable's review does it actually mention the entire focus of the book is rape, child abuse, and violence… oh and more rape. It’s not a fun, entertaining read. I've heard the author is pretty popular but her writing pretty one-dimensional, her characters are irritating, and the crime is pretty easy to solve. She sounds like she got out her thesaurus and used every word she could find for “angrily.” Serious count the number of “angry” words… even in her “romantic” scenes. Don't waste your credit. There are better books out there.

    "Loved the narrator"

    I really loved the narrators use of accents - they made the story quite interesting.
    I have since listened to another book with a different narrator and have not enjoyed this half as much!

    "Futuristic"

    This series of books is set into the future and I agree with the other reviewers who complained that Audible should state this. After realizing that the story was set in the future I enjoyed the plot and will be downloading the second book in the series to hear more of Eve's and Roark's adventures.

    "Surprisingly Impressed"

    I am not normally into these type of mystery/romance books, but I saw it on an audible sale and decided to try it. I really enjoyed it! The characters are not typical, the narrator is excellent, the plot twisted and turned and kept me on my feet and the romance was delicious, even if it was not very original. I couldn't stop listening, and then found myself listening to it again! The novel being set in the future was extremely interesting, and has provoked much discussion with others about certain social topics. Do be warned; as the deaths deal with murdered prostitutes the content can be a bit disturbing. This is an enticing and addictive listen.
