He’ll do anything to keep her safe…for the rest of their lives.
Romance and excitement tie the knot in Taken by Tuesday, the fifth book in Catherine Bybee’s best-selling Weekday Brides series.
Judy Gardner: College graduate Judy stands ready to conquer the world…if she can get a job. Hoping to transition from aspiring architect to famous architect as quickly as possible, the dark-haired beauty moves to LA, staying in the home of her celebrity brother, Michael Wolfe. But it’s hard for Judy to focus on work when the sexy bodyguard she fell for last summer keeps showing up in her life and leaving her breathless.
Rick Evans: With his hard body, green eyes, and easy smile, Rick could have any woman he wants. But the Marine-turned- bodyguard only has eyes for Judy and her spitfire attitude. When a faceless villain attacks Judy, Rick will stop at nothing to protect the woman who opened his heart from the monster hunting her.

I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
The series continues with the fifth in the series. This book is all about Judy. We met her in book four as Michael's middle sister. The couple met at the end of book four and we see their relationship move forward in this novel. The novel was good but the foreshadowing was quite heavy handed and you actually saw it coming way far in advance -- what you ask -- well you have to listen.
There were a couple of surprises that Bybee let Judy wield that made the twists and turns interesting and there was a moment or two of high suspense -- Bybee is not really know for her drawn out suspense moments. The narration was good.
All in all, a solid increment on the series. I understand that the next one is due out in April of 2015.
Rick & Judy
Wow a big twist! Shocking, thrilling, exciting & obsessed with reading! I enjoyed every page! Filled with heart stopping electrifying pages of shock, love, steamy passion, & more!
I love CB's Weekday series and her Not Quite series. Well, since I've read almost all her books I guess I just love her writing.
It would be impossible to say which is my favorite book but this one would be right up on top.
As others have mentioned, the part where Judy was tied up in the basement was pretty horrific but it didn't last long before Rick and Neil came to the rescue, not horrific enough to get 1 or 2 stars! It's like they based their review on a chapter or two of the whole book.
Anyway, I loved Taken by Tuesday, like so many others. Great storyline. Great love affair, great sex. Just a great book.
Loved seeing Blake and Sam, Zach and Karen, Neil and Gwen, Carter and Eliza and Michael.
AND true to real life, Detectives Raskin and Perozo arrest the good guy and stop looking for the real bad guy. BUT it all worked out and there was a HEA for Rick and Judy.
As to the narrator: She did a wonderful job. I never get tired of listening to Tanya Eby. Her men might all sound almost alike but, at least, they sound like men and that's important to me.
I would also like to say that the description tells us what the book is about or we can zip over to Amazon and look at reviews. This is AUDIBLE! What we need to review is the narrator. Does he or she suck? Why? Is he or she too nasal-y, too sweet for the kind of book he or she is reading, to gruff, too bland, too robotic, lacks emotion. Is he or she doing nothing but reading the book? Not changing his or her voice for the male and female voices? Is the narrator sounding the same whether she or he is reading a whisper spoken?
Most of us on AUDIBLE don't really care what the book is about. We want to know about the narrator!
I love this series and this one didn't disappoint. This is the first book I buy also as an audio book and I definitely didn't regret it. This is one of the best audio books I've listened to and it is narrated amazingly good, so I definitely recommend it.
I think that would be Rick. I do love a hot Marine ready to do everything for the woman he loves. And a bonus to that is that he is smart, entertaining, romantic and tender :)
I haven't listened to any audio books, narrated by her up till now but I will definitely check the rest of the books she narrated as I really loved her work on this one :)
What are you ready to do for love? (I have no idea, I am not good in that stuff)
Definitely a recommended read
This was a great story. (much better than the last one) I really liked Judy and Rick together. They made a great couple, had some good chemistry and very nicely written sex scenes. The story line and plot were good.
There was lots and lots of dialogue throughout the entire book, which was great. (I like lots of dialogue).
I enjoyed all the returning characters from the previous books, that's always nice.
As for the narration. It was great. Tanya Eby gets better and better! Everyone has their own distinct voice and the men sound like men.
I got this as a free read with my KU subscription and 1.99 on audible, Great Deal!
