    Story
    "Great Story, horrible accents."
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Mitch is a tough detective from DENVER, not New York. Mitch, as well as some of the other characters sound native to NY/NJ every time there was a fight scene. Very distracting. I've lived in Denver for a long time and no one talks like that unless they're a transplant from the east coast.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. The story was great for the most part. Although Mara's issues and constantly pushing Mitch away became tedious. The level of insecurity becomes unbelievable after a while.

    "The End!"

    I got this book because of the good reviews, one in particular, she has never failed me. However I do not see why people have loved this book so much. It was funny and romantic but it got to the point I was screaming ENUFF ALREADY! For me this book was just a little too long for the main story line. By the end of the book if I heard one more time about him being a 10.5 and her being a 2.5 I would have screamed. I just wanted to knock some sense into Mara. The ending however when the big oh no happened felt rushed. If the author would of token out some of the .5 stuff and add more to that OH NO scene then this book might of been a 4. But since I had to listen to all that point this and that for so long I can not give this book more then 3 stars. This book could of been half as long and been better. I am just happy I did not pay full price for it.

    Story
    "I don't understand all the great reviews!"

    Wow - so disappointed! I love romance and the reviews were so promising; maybe I was expecting too much. While the characters themselves are well written, and there is a good supporting cast, the main character is often ditzy and irritating. It’s difficult to get into a book when you don’t like the main character.

    The story is OK but I couldn’t stand the horrible dialogue and finally gave up in Chapter 31. When the Russian mob characters were introduced that was it for me! I thought there was little or no difference in the characters’ dialogue. The narrator does a decent job with the different voices and accents but the actual dialogue is almost interchangeable. The superfluous use of swear words seems cheap and makes the characters appear ignorant. Is it really necessary to use the word “sh*#” every few words to make someone seem tough? To cover-up the poor dialogue there are words sprinkled in here and there that are far-fetched and well beyond the characters’ intelligence levels. Because of the poor dialogue the characters are not believable; I felt no connection to them and just didn’t care enough to keep listening.

    I have listened to over 100 audiobooks and this is only the second time I did not finish the book. Really wished I would have enjoyed it more!

    "Just couldn't finish it"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    There are a lot of positive reviews for this book so I guess those that really enjoyed other Kristen Ashley books may enjoy it.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not sure. Gotta search


    What didn’t you like about Kate Russell’s performance?

    The story may have been better with a different narrator. The narrator was just too young, flat and naive sounding. The story seemed to drag.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Law Man?

    Couldn't listen long enough to find a scene I would remove.

    "Least favoriate in the series"
    Would you try another book from Kristen Ashley and/or Kate Russell?

    Yes, love KA's books


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    While I stayed up late to finish other books in this series, I've a very difficult time finishing this book. Mara's insecurity is waaayyyy too annoying. The 2.5 vs. 10.5 comparison was cute the first time, but after the 10th time or, I couldn't handle it anymore.


    What does Kate Russell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator is ok


    Could you see Law Man being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    Not worth a credit

    Story
    "Disappointed"
    What disappointed you about Law Man?

    I was looking forward to this book, but had trouble finishing it due to Mara whining about her being ugly and worthless. It was too much for me to handle, it seemed like every other sentence she went into "Mara world" to convince herself that she didn't deserve Mitch. It wouldn't have been so bad, but it was annoying listening to this for HOURS. It also needed more action in the middle.


    Has Law Man turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    What does Kate Russell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Nothing stuck out, but she was good.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the trailer trash twins and the kids.

    "Not the best."

    After Mystery Man, which I loved, I was expecting great things from this second book in the series. I was vastly disappointed.

    I can't fault the reader -- she did what she could with the material. It was the endless stream of consciousness narrating on the part of the h that brought me out of the story at the midway point. And it was narrating. Repetitious non-stop inner monologue narrating. If a real person's thought processes worked this way, they would be completely unable to function, and would be left deaf, dumb and blind to the verbal and physical cues that are a necessity when it comes to negotiating real life. (Girlie Aspergers? If so, it's a severe case.)

    I'm giving it 3 stars for the many great touches that made me chuckle and also made me wish for a better book to go with them.
