Blane Kirk is a Navy SEAL turned attorney with old money and an even older pedigree. High powered and aggressive, he plays the field, changing women as often as he changes his ties - but he's had no complaints so far. He has only two rules: Don't date employees, and don't get emotionally involved. These are rules he can easily live by...until his runner, an employee in his law firm named Kathleen Turner, does an unexpected faceplant into his lap.
Kathleen's too young and innocent for Blane, and much too vulnerable. After her friend is murdered, Blane knows she could be next - and he knows that keeping her alive means keeping her close to him. Kathleen's like no woman he's ever met, and protecting her could be the one thing to change his life forever. He may be able to keep her safe from the killer...but can he keep her safe from himself?
Blane's Turn is a companion novel to No Turning Back, book one in the Kathleen Turner series.

I’m not even sure what this book is supposed to be about. Is it about Blane finding his brother, every other chapter goes 17 years into the past? Is it about Blane lusting after a girl 24 when he’s around 37, and he tells himself over and over again that this can’t work, leave her alone? Is it about Blane being the lawyer for mobsters? Is it about Blane’s now grown brother breaking into someone’s house/office with Blane’s blessing and his warning not to get caught? Is it about Blane getting involved in the murder of Kathleen’s neighbor, and his sudden need to protect her, while continuing to lust after her? This book is all over the place. At one point I read the part 3 times of where Blane’s client held a knife to Kathleen’s throat then suddenly the client was on the floor with the knife in his side. Who did it? WTH happened? I still don’t know. Maybe one of you readers can tell me what happened.
At 40% I give up. This is book 6 in the series and I just looked at what book 1 said and I’m totally confused because Blane and Kathleen met in book 1 for the first time then they met in book 6 for the first time. AND the first 5 books are written in the first person and 6 and 7 are in the third person. This whole series is beyond me. Then in book 7’s description it sounds like Kade falls in love with Kathleen, Blane’s girlfriend. That’s just too much. I hate a love triangle. Readers said it was a stand alone book but I find that hard to believe. And that it was a "companion" to book one, told in Blane's point of view. Really? In Kathleen's POV it's told in the first person but in Blane's it's in the third person? I tried to read Ms. Snow’s book Blank Slate and ended up stopping because it too boring. But I decided to give her another chance with this one. But, no. I’m done with her. Sorry.
There was some sexual tension on Blane’s part but no sex up to 40%.
And for those of you who don’t like swearing, the F-BOMB was used 67 times. I don’t mind that word but I know a lot of you do. You’ve been warned.
I got this book through KU.
As to the narration: Mr. Daniels did a wonderful job making Blane's voice sound really sexy and Kathleen's voice sound very feminine. I would definitely listen to him again.
