Santino Fontana he's great at embodying the nuances in female speech
Anger because of the narrator.
The narrator is just absolutely pathetic. I don't get all the rave reviews because I could not concentrate on the story being told because the narrators voice was overly dramatic. It was like listening to bad acting. I thought her "male" voice was absolutely laughable and ridiculous. It was like when the wife tries to impersonate her husband over the phone because she's not an authorized person on the account. You would never believe it. This narrator steals so much from this story that I can't believe they went with her. I mean her voice is like a wet blanket. It is a horrible monotone that makes my ears bleed. I didn't finish this book. I just couldn't listen to it.
First of all I'd like to respond to an earlier review that claimed this was a romance novel without any real story. I just want to say Lisa Jackson once again has written a great book, Natalie Ross did a wonderful job bringing the characters to life. If you've read the rest of this series you won't be disappointed.
I think I would have preferred the abridged version and read the hard copy so I could skim over all the repeated dialog. I really do not like this narrator and wish I had paid attention to who was narrating before purchasing
This was so contrived and predictable. Lisa Jackson's books aren't literary genius, but they're usually captivating and don't require total suspension of disbelief. This one was phoned in.
It has been a VERY long time since I heard a book that makes my heart almost beat out of my chest with anticipation as the suspenseful scenes unfold! I was extremely hesitant about getting this book since I don't read perverse graphic sex stuff which a lot of psychological thrillers are about, fortunately not this one (it does have nudity).
If you enjoy a intense psychological thriller, this author and narrator combo create a REALLY heart pounding story. It's best not to drive while listening to this book as the driver will forget what they are doing!
It sounded like the author took a "write a romance" course and followed the class notes step by step.
It kept repeating, repeating, and repeating the same paragraphs over and over and over again in each chapter. How many times can you take pages and pages of running away naked through the woods from the same mad man? Ooops, she escaped again and he's risen from "dead" AGAIN, and here we go AGAIN with the same "run, trip, fall, almost escape, get caught" scene.
The plot line of twins being captured and killed had some merit, but the author just filled in the rest of the details with romance and drivel.
All of the "escape, run, trip, get captured ......" scenes.
Audible used to label romances as romances. I wish they'd go back to that practice so those of us who can't stand this kind of "writing" can save our credits.
Several times while listening to this book I just turned it off. Some of the characters were just to dense to make it believable.
It could have been good if the character behaviors were believable, but they weren't.
Not sure who would enjoy reading this book.
The story is too dragged out. There is too much time spent on what a character is thinking/feeling, when we got the point ten minutes ago. The villain is nearly choked to death and then stabbed in the neck, but still manages to regain ALL of his strength over and over. And, how many times can the victims be recaptured and escape. The narration is boring, with no voice inflection.
Disappointed, because I always look forward to a good book, but this book was so poor, it angered me that I used a credit on it.
