Publisher's Summary

Cole Stockton had a will of steel and a raw determination to go after what he wanted, including Kelsey Murdock. He'd invaded her life, assaulting her with his sensuality, tempting her to be reckless.

She sensed something dangerous about the man, in the secrets he refused to share, the past that still haunted him, the coiled tension that denied intimacy. For Cole, the past was a closed door. For Kelsey, that meant too many questions and no answers, and the best reason to walk away, before it was too late.

But when a simple business trip turns into a dangerous survival game, she is plunged into a world Cole knows all too well. Now Kelsey must trust he knows it well enough to keep them both alive.

    "Was it the content or the narrator?"

    Both! I cringe as I think about this book. The reader read the content in such a way that it was really hard to like either character. The female was always yelping and the male love interest sounded pathological. The reader's male voices were embarrassing to listen to. Now add to that thought that the story was thin in content and weakly developed.

    "Horrible"

    Agree with other reviewers, the writing and the way it was read made the male character completely un-likable and I kept waiting for the gal to dump him and find someone nice!

    "Man With A Past"

    This story was ok. I think I had higher expectations. I didn't like the male character that much, he was a little annoying. I also felt the story didn't flow as well as it could have from beginning to end, loose ends throughout.

    Story
    "Disappointed"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story. I love Janye Ann Krentz, but this story fell way short of what she usually writes.


    What could Jayne Ann Krentz have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Developed the two main characters better. They just appeared with little plot development and were ready to make serious relationship commitments. The story just ended with a lot of unanswered questions. Even though this is fiction it was just not believeable enough.


    Would you be willing to try another one of the narrator’s performances?

    Maybe. I don't fault the narrator when the story is bad.


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

    Sorry, but none.

    "abridged version not worth it"

    I have to say this is one of the worst abridged books I have ever heard. They cut out too much and what they did leave in made references to stuff they left out. As is the book is a horrible fascimile of the book. What is there is somewhat enjoyable as long as you have never read the book and don't mind the occasional reference to something you have no knowledge of.
    Your better off with one of the authors unabridged books. However since this book is out of publication it does at least give you an idea of the original.

    "interesting title but..."

    This story just didn't seem to fully develop as it went along. It seemed disjointed and very unbelievable. Certain plot insinuations were made but not followed through. Would not recommend.
