For FBI agent Erik Langston, the world is divided into black and white, wrong and right. So he’s made it his life’s mission to hunt down Solomon.

    "I can even finish the book"
    What would have made Blank Slate better?

    Better writing to start. The writing style is sophomoric, story predictable. The narration was another thing that got on my nerves.


    Has Blank Slate turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I like this genre but I do not think I will ready this author again.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    at least I got it as a daily deal and I did not use a credit.

    "The narrator lisps?!"

    Tanya Eby's lisp makes it difficult to even decipher some of the phrases. My fault, I didn't listen to a sample, but I think selling an audio book narrated by someone with a pronounced lisp is selling defective merchandise.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    "I Should Have Listened To The Reviews"

    Perhaps my disappointment is my fault because I thought I was purchasing a mystery or thriller. Within a couple of pages, however, it became clear that Blank Slate is a very light-weight romance novel. Nothing more. Rather than a realistic plot driving the story, Blank Slate seems to use the contrived events and actions as excuses for the one-dimensional characters to lust after each other. Nothing wrong with lust but my guess is that real people in the midst of life threatening situations and serious physical injuries would not be quite so distracted. For example, after a car accident in which the primary female character sustains both painful injuries and a loss of memory, would her first thoughts about her rescuer really include that "the muscles in his thighs pulled the denim of his jeans taut"? And for him, after a major chase and some physical injuries of his own, while tending to the bleeding and unconscious suspected criminal, this law enforcement officer would be thinking that "petite though she was, her body was perfectly formed to please a man...her thighs were smooth, flaring to hips that would fit nicely in his hands..."? I doubt it. So, if you enjoy predictable romance novels with stilted dialogue and the depth of a teenage girl's fantasy, this may be just the thing. For me, I prefer a novel where the attraction between characters is icing on the cake, not the entire meal.

    Tanya Eby was just OK with the narration of the story

    "Harlequin Romance disguised as a thriller...."

    I was drawn in by the synopsis: a cyber-hacker born into a family of thieves, a straight arrow FBI agent. I expected a thrilling cat-and-mouse chase. Sure, there might be a sexual component, with two such characters it's almost a given; and I'm not opposed to a good sex scene or two (I love the In Death series).
    But what I got was a Harlequin romance with a LOT of sex (I'm not kidding when I say a lot, either it's being talked about, thought about or done), a ridiculous plot (she gets amnesia within the first 20 minutes!!!!), not much mystery and some only fair writing (there are some things that you can skim over when reading but are especially painful to listen to).
    I'm could barely to listen to the end (I fast forwarded through every sex scene, because they were basically the same).
    I gave the narration a 3, because she's not to blame and she does the best she can with the material.
    So you are warned! It's not worth the time.

    "A Quick Fun Audiobook"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Overall: 3.5 Stars

    Clarissa is a very wanted computer hacker/thief, but loses her memory completely! Classic opposites attract with Erik being an FBI agent and Clarissa being a thief. Lots of snarky banter and a few sizzling scenes. Non-stop action at every turn and I loved that Clarissa was a bad-ass! The narration was pretty good, too. Clarissa's accent wasn't heavily overdone, just right.

    I got this on an Audible Daily Deal, but I wouldn't have purchased it at full price. Good for a bargain book.

    "Pleasantly surprised"

    I loved the KT series. Wasn't sure how I would like this book. I was impressed, this was so worth the purchase. Looking for more from TS books.

    Story
    "3.5; Barely a romance; Good suspense"

    This was an ok suspense tale. But the romance part took a backseat to the suspense and was not as developed or attended to. But, when it was the focus, the romance part was okay too. The sex scenes, of which there were about 2-3 detailed acts, were done well. They were sexy and somewhat romantic but not what I would call explicit or erotic. But there was enough detail to be steamy. However, if that’s not your thing, they are so rare that you can forward through them.

    Overall, the book was just mediocre. It was nothing I couldn’t stop listening to. Simultaneously, it was also not a story that I couldn’t bear listening to or had to fast-forward through parts. So that’s a good thing.

    The characters were likeable. Clarissa, the h, was smart and strong, even more than Erik, the H, at times and admittedly. I generally don’t like stories based on the character getting amnesia, but it wasn’t the primary trope used in this story and was temporary. So it worked out okay. As a result of Clarissa’s amnesia, the story swings between past and present, but it’s not done constantly and not for lengthy portions.

    The suspense part included shootings, but there was no gore or detail in the violence. And the main characters didn’t seem to revel in their violence. So much of the story skimmed the top of life, making it an ok story that was not light fare but nowhere near being deep or having any real depth at any point, either. But that was not the attempt. Therefore, I think the author achieved what she sought in this story.

    The end comes together a bit too prettily after several struggles to survive and have a desirable end together, but it was also plausible. And the struggles all made sense and took the story beyond the basic light tale where everything seems to be great and happens so easily for the characters. Some outcomes depended on good luck and happenstance but not so much that I viewed the story as implausible. So, again, overall, it was okay. But I prefer a bit more romance than suspense in these types of stories.

    Geeky, photography-loving stitcher. Hobbits, zombies, space cowboys, agents, avengers, & clones are welcome in my post-apocalyptic dystopia.

    "Blank Slate"
    Would you try another book from Tiffany Snow and/or Tanya Eby?

    No. Uniformly poor writing and poor character development.


    What could Tiffany Snow have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Her characters consistently made poor choices, showed a shocking lack of judgment in situations for which they supposedly had professional expertise, and seemed to have little to no common sense.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrators attempts at accents and depicting a male voice were very badly done. Her narrative phrasing was mid-sentence and didn't provide clear breaks between changes in point of view.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't recommend this book.

    "Twists"

    Everything is a little hard to believe, a little convoluted, but not too bad. The narrator is alright at male voices, but she puts weird emphases on certain words sometimes.

    Regardless, I like twists, even somewhat unbelievable ones. I like trying to figure out as I hear them coming. I could figure these ones out, but not until I got close to the twists. That's the trouble with twists, unbelievable ones get guessed late int he story but come off kind of false.
