First, she imagined it. Then a killer made it real.
Rowan Smith is living in a borrowed Malibu beach house while her bestselling novel is made into a Hollywood movie. A former FBI agent with a haunted past, Rowan thinks she has outrun her demons. But fiction and reality collide when a dismembered body is found in Colorado: the real-life victim had the same name, occupation, and looks as a character in Rowan's novel. By the time the FBI, the LAPD, and her own private bodyguard gather around her, another person is killed - again, the murder ripped from the pages of Rowan's book.
In the company of a former Delta Force officer with secrets of his own, Rowan faces an excruciating dilemma: the only way to chase down the tormenting killer is by revisiting the darkness of her past - and by praying for some way out again.
After the prey is chosen, the hunt is on and the kill is certain.

The Prey had me intrigued from the opening minutes. There really isn't a dull moment from start to finish. The suspense is chilling. I had a fun time sitting down and listening to Gwen read this book. She did an excellent job bringing this novel alive. I felt she handled the violent scenes with great respect to the author's intentions and the main characters were well defined.
Waste of credit, wait and get it free from the Library. The story is good not one of Allison Brennan best, I believe if she had gone with the narrator from her other novels it would have been a very good story, but this narrator does not do the story line justice, her whinny voice for all the characters just makes me want to delete this from my ipod.
So, I am all for good suspense, even a bit gory/realistic. But, here's the thing- you had better be ready to be depressed, sad and hopeless when you read this book. I still have 3 hours to go - and I just don't know if I care enough at this point to finish it. Seriously. This is super dark, very little redemption, stark and depressing. UGH. Should be in the "novel" category- very little romance - and am seriously doubting any hope of a happy ending. For me, well, I have enough "reality" and hard stuff every day. I am not looking for it in my "leisure" activities. Again, no problem with gritty - but unrelenting depressing sadness - not so much.
Full of suspense. I liked the Narrator pretty well. Absolutely worth the listen. Good love scenes as well.
Addicting and Thrilling
John. I like his hard ass portector personality. Yet he was gentle and caring when it comes to family and love.
When John and Rowan(Lilly) finally realize their true feelings for each other
The entire book has moved me to purchase another story by Allison Brennan
