    "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.

    "A pleasure to finally read Book #1"

    I started this series at book # 20. Most of the characters are all established at that point. It was refreshing to finally listen to book #1 and meet the characters afresh. Charles is introduced, as well as Nadine, Whitney, Roarke, Summerset, Feeny.
    I liked Roarke's thoughtful jestures toward Eve. For example, sending her a bag of real coffee and fixing the heater in her car while they were heating up the bedroom with a marathon night of lovemaking. Eve is just the right balance of mystery, toughness, and understated femininity.
    I'm going to continue the series and catch up to where I left off. That should fill in many gaps and flesh out all the characters.
    Susan Ericksen is perfect to narate this series. She is tough but tender, strong and soft, smart but sensitive.
    I guess you could say I'm hooked in death.

    Love books, preferably romance and suspense. Typically read/listen to 3-5 a week.

    "The Beginning of a Love Affair"

    This is the beginning. I totally love the series. I simply cannot get enough. I like some books better than others, but overall I love the series. The characters evolve as the series move from one book to the other. You really should start with this book, but you can start anywhere. There is enough background given in each book to know what is going on and not be lost. I think there is a perfect balance of mystery, sci-fi, romance and thrill to make this book along with the rest very enjoyable. If you are looking for a hard-core thriller, or sci-fi then you will be disappointed. This is a mystery with a little futuristic, a touch of sci-fi and a lot of interaction between the characters all while solving a case. It is a great listen. You will not be bored.

    I think the writing is tight, enjoyable and well written. It left me wanting for more. I have listened to this book several times. Nora you need to put them out faster. I know you do not want Eve to have a baby yet but it is time.

    There is nothing I can say about the narration. When Susan can not do the narration that is when I will have to give up on the series. She is as much a part of the series as the characters.
    Someone else doing the narration will ruin it for me.

    "A real stinker"

    I paid five bucks to listen to this. I demand a refund of at least $4.90. Don't do it to yourself.

    "Not too shabby!"

    I bought this book on sale and for an "impulse" buy it turned out to be a fun listen. The romance was an unexpected surprise and the lead male character made up for the somewhat annoying lead female character with all of her "issues".I never would have purchased this book on my own so it made for a nice change.
