Breath of Scandal

On a rainy Southern night, Jade Sperry endured a young woman's worst nightmare at the hands of three local hell-raisers.

Publisher's Summary

On a rainy Southern night, Jade Sperry endured a young woman's worst nightmare at the hands of three local hell-raisers.

Robbed of her youthful ideals and at the center of scandal and tragedy, Jade ran as far and as fast as she could. But she never forgot the sleepy "company town" where every man, woman, and child was dependent on one wealthy family. And she never forgot their spoiled son, who with his two friends changed her life forever.

Someday, somehow, she'd return...exacting a just revenge, freeing herself from her enemies' grasp, and, perhaps, fulfilling a lost promise of love.

    "breath of scandal continuity problem"

    story is fantastic, but in moving from part 1 to part 2 an entire section of the story is missing. i was so confused during part 2 that i actually came back to audible.com to see if i had inadvertently not downloaded a part. is this an author, publisher, editor or production problem?

    "A good listen"

    I found this book to be enjoyable and a change from some of the intense listening I do. The only negative was that it was a bit too long.

    "Got My Attention"

    This was well written insofar as the characters went - well developed and defined. And what I liked best was the mystery involved, especially as it pertained to the "wealthy" family and the role of the members. I enjoyed this story.

    "Couldn't Stop Listening"

    I had just finished a really good book and wasn't sure I would be able to find another gripping one so fast. Five minutes into this book I was hooked. It is a truly tragic but wonderful story, one of those books that you are sad to have end.

    "ugh!"

    The story may be great, I wouldn't know. I couldn't listen past the first 30 minutes. This narrator is nauseating, grating, and infuriating. He makes the women sound like ridiculous caricatures. For a story that seems so much about the value/rights/respect of women, he was the wrong choice. He sounded more like he was making fun of the characters. A female narrator might have been the best choice, but ANYONE would have been better than this clown!

    "Excellent!!!"

    This book is great. The narrarator is very good, though I was sceptical at first due to a male playing the role of a female. The book does cover a tough topic, but if you cannot detect that from the title that is your own ignorance. It was worth every minute, couldn't put it down! LOVE Sandra Brown!!

    "Good but...."

    The story was ok for the gene but for the reader's lousy and annoying southern accents . It would have been better if he had not tried and failed.

    "True Sandra Brown"

    Book is good, interesting story. The reader is not good at all. Does an awful job with female voices.

    Story
    "Impressive. Very Compelling. 4.5 stars!"

    This novel is multi-faceted. Sandra Brown creates a very rich and intriguing background. The set up is a story in itself. Initially I thought there was a lull in the middle, but it's the crucial details to bring these characters to life. And it pays off.. I couldn't stop listening for the last 4 hours. I turned off my phone, and marathoner straight thru this novel.
    (the first half is just as intriguing, there's only an hour or so that dragged).

    I wish there was more time for the relationship between Dillan and Jade. I like them very much. With their tortured pasts, their chemistry is electric. Dillan is a favorite character of mine. I would have loved to read more of the fleshing out of the emotional issues these characters would face while beginning a relationship. A bit more of the romantic elements would make this a solid 5 stars.

    (I'll say, Ive yet to find a sandra brown that surpassed Slow Heat in Heaven. Cash Boudreax with Dick Hill's narration is FANTASTIC!)

    Speaking of, Dick Hill is my favorite narrator. Naturally he is in usual superb form narrating these southern characters.

    Highly recommended.
