Breaking up is hard to do, as Kathleen Turner discovers. After a falling-out with her ex, high-powered attorney Blane Kirk, she’s moving on the best she can. Unfortunately, someone from her past is set on revenge and nothing short of killing Kathleen will stop them. Keeping his brother’s ex-girlfriend alive isn’t something new to assassin-for-hire Kade Dennon, but this time can he protect her from himself? She’s a woman he can’t convince himself to walk away from, no matter what it costs him. Regret is a constant companion for Blane as he realizes the truth behind the lies he’s been told. Can love heal the past, or can some mistakes not be undone? Murder reunites Blane, Kade, and Kathleen as the police put Blane in their crosshairs. Blane may lose everything unless he and Kade can find the real murderer before it’s too late. But if they can’t set aside their love for the same woman and work together, it will tear them apart. In Out of Turn, Kathleen is caught between two warring brothers, and the consequences may be fatal.

I need way more than three words to sum up Out of Turn. But if I had to try I guess it would be 'Love Them Both'. Kathleen tries so hard to not come between Blane and Kade but in the end she hurts both herself and the men who mean so much to her.
This story was all action. At times I wondered how Kathleen would survive. As in the other books in this series Blane was his usual pompous, arrogant, self-centred self. Still blind to the dubious intentions of some of those around him. Kane on the other hand, though still full of self-doubt was more willing to show his soft and vulnerable side.
I have listened to many of Angela Dawe's performances and I think this series is one of my favourites. The voice of Kathleen Turner suits the character so well - the presentation is almost clinical. It is like 'well this is me and my life - I may not be much but I like who I am'. I guess if I have any negative comment if would be that Blane always sounds like he has a sore throat - but then I guess that's how I pick his voice.
I got so frustrated with Kathleen with her blind faith in Blane. Thank goodness she recognised her real feelings for Kane by the end of the book - saved me throwing something!
I am really enjoying this series. I see the next instalment won't be available until May 2014. Hopefully Tiffany Snow will give Kathleen a Happy Ever After - even if it is one that involves one women and the two men she loves!
Just wonderful. Nerve racking, stressful and scary but a MUST read. You won't be disappointed. Well worth the cost or one credit.
I am open to reviewing quality products.
Oh...Wow...just...wow! I enjoyed all the books in this series so far, but this one was an emotional roller-coaster!! It picks up months after the end of the last book, which was devastating in so many ways! I should have know to keep the box of tissues with me!!!
Kathleen in dealing with the break-up with Blane, her mixed feelings for Kade and some serious PTSD. Even though there is a great deal of angst in the beginning, which is understandable, she still has that core of strength. She is not afraid to take matters into her own hands and stand up for herself. I loved her growth in this book, she is still a touch naive but now I find it endearing. She really is growing as a character and I love where she is headed.
Blane finally pulled his head out of his rectum and sees the truth, but now he is stuck. I have never felt he was the right choice for her, he is rather cold even when he is being loving. By the end of the book he made some steps toward growth as well. And finally has a great big spotlight placed on the whole kidnapping from the last book.
As always I love Kade, while he is dark and brooding her shows with his actions how much he cares for Kathleen. He does things that are about her, like the locket which was a perfect gift. And he makes her, and us, laugh...even in tense situations.
There is a lot of story going on this book. I girl gets swept into things quickly and once the action starts, hold on to your hats!! Great pacing makes this book fly. I really like that it isn't just one plot, there are usually a few sub-plots tied in to make things pop. These are seriously addictive!
I still wish we could have a mixed narrative all the time, I desperately want to know what the guys are thinking. Especially when they do the shared stare/looks. Unfortunately, we are only treated to Kathleen's POV for almost the entire book. There is a tiny peak into Blane at the very end, but not as much as I would like.
The steam factor, is rather yummy, for a mainstream Romantic Suspense, things get pretty spicy! What happens in Vegas and all that. Oh, and there is a delightful picnic! I am still holding onto the dream that this jumps track and turns into a menage, there was a closet scene that gives me hope.
I listened to the audiobook read by the fabulous Angela Dawe. She has a real way of making Kathleen come to life, not to whiny but instilled with a sense of youth. Her males voices have just the right deep timber. Oh la, Kane sounds delicious! She does a wonderful job of keeping each voice distinct and consistent. She has a terrific pace that makes the story move along quickly. She has a gift for adding energy into the narration.
I am so very hooked on this series, I am like a junkie needing my next fix, sadly I have to wait until May!! Fingers crossed that things get smexy and she doesn't have to choose!
This series has an interesting story line which is what is keeping me reading each book so far. However, major points of complete and utter unreality continue to make me roll my eyes in frustration: there is NO way a normal person could tolerate being shot at, molested, assaulted, nearly blown up, knifed, kidnapped, etc every 1-2 days without going totally insane with fear and paranoia. THEN proceed to go to work as if nothing happened. I get it's just a book where anything is possible but damn... You can actually predict when the next wave is going to strike. Another annoyance is the constant references to the main character being ashamed for nearly being raped and beat up. Is that a message we want sent to woman?? She's a strong character.... She'd know it's not her fault, go tell people and report the crimes.
And the whole love triangle? It's just dragging on and on... Better to finally make a threesome relationship work or pick one of the brothers and move on!
All of this being said... It's not a bad read... Just frustrating at times.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Ok, you must like a series as the author keeps you tied to her books with twists and turns with our two heroes. I started with this book as I wanted Cades' story. I loved it, but I do not care for the heroine, Kat. She is strong since she was a cops' daughter, but since the author wants a series she makes our heroine have weak emotions. I purchased #4 & 5 as they seem to be Cade stories. He's as sexy as they get!
The times when Cade waxes poetic to Kat. I love Cades' character as he is the quintessential smart mouth and bad boy. You will get a laugh when all three go exploring in shoe boxes.
A.D. has a great male voice I like. I went looking for her reads and found this series.
Yup, I sure did listen in one day and into the night. On to book #5. If I like the book, I may buy the beginning books. I have to read the reviews first as one reviewer stated heroine is a bit weak. Each story does set up the next book so be warned if you do not like series. These are not stand alone listens. I am not compelled to listen to a series from book 1. Many authors get so much better later on in a series with their dialogue.
JD Robbs' Naked in Death is an exception. Book 1 is still the best.
"I Can't Quite Like This Series, But the story is Gripping!"
I confess. There is so much about this series that I don't like. I find the heroine really tiresome. But I have to keep listening to discover what happens next. I prefer Kade, Blaine is a bit too corporate. But I totally dislike her interaction and relationships with the two brothers.
If this were a film, I'd be willing the credits to roll. As it is, this cliffhanger is the only thing that is making me reach for the next book!
