I have read a lot of reviews of the narrator of this novel, and some people find him wonderful. I find him to be passable. Of course, I wasn't impressed with the story line of the novel, so his ability to turn it into something special may be due to the lack of material. I found the story predictable and barely worth my time to finish.
Better things to do but this is more fun.
Liked it enough to finish it, not sure I'd listen to another by this author with this reader. The plot and the characters were good but the story felt dated - not sure why but think it may be the reader? I couldn't put my finger on why except his reading didn't have any urgency or maybe he couldn't give me a sense of the female characters.
I liked how Dare was protective; he explains it as being protective of everyone (not just Molly) by saying it's everyone younger, smaller, older, etc. I also liked his love for and loyalty to his best friend Chris.
Dare and Molly's chemistry could use a little more urgency or heat. I liked the love scenes, didn't love them. They didn't make me sweat.
I really enjoyed this book, and will read/listen to more from Lori Foster. In most romance stories, the plot is completely secondary and usually pretty weak. Here, Ms. Foster was able to develop equal parts romance:thriller and they competed nicely. The narrator did a great job with the text, and was able to maintain the appropriate pace/rhythm so as not to distract. Well done!!!
Loved the twists and turns. Enjoyed the unexpected. The story had a good storyline and kept me listening.
When Dare meets the ex-boyfriend. I wanted to laugh and cringe at the same time.
The pauses were too long-especially between chapters. I found myself checking my device to see if it had been switched off. Good narrator, but spoke really slow. In some parts, it was like listening to the binnacle man moving in slow motion.
GOT THIS BOOK BY CHANCE ON THE TWO FOR ONE DEALS AND AM SO GLAD I DID. THIS BOOK WAS EVERYTHING I EXPECTED AND MORE. LEAD ME TO BY ALL OTHER BOOKS.
I liked the development of the characters and the emotional struggles they encountered.
The characters were likable and compelling. A nice combination of reality, humor, emotion, and romance.
Good listen, Great narrator. The story was predictable but still very well written and held my interest. If you love stories about strong and sexy men who strive to do the right thing and be honorable than this story is for you.
5 Stars - Loved it & will listen to it again 4 Stars - Really liked it & may listen to it again 3 Stars - Liked it but will not listen to it again 2 Stars - Didn't like it very much 1 Star - Hated it
If you are looking for thought provoking books, these are not for you. These are about hunky men and romance. I have read all four books and now listening to them. These are a light, no thought listen. What can I say - I love strong men;)
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
This book could have been cut down by about 2 hours. There was a lot of useless, boring story that could have been left out or condensed. The story was very good, the heroine and hero were very likeable. The story starts off with a bang and then it gets soft once the rescue is done. The story sort of meanders along after that, however the last quarter of the book picks up again and the ending is superb.
