I love L.F.'s books so this was an automatic download for me. However, this is actually 4th in the Men Who Walked the Edge of Honor series - When You Dare, Trace of Fever, Savor the Danger then this one.
That said, I hadn't realised this and it was still a very enjoyable listen about Arizona who was sold into slavery and prostitution by her father at an early age but she's now free and determined to seek revenge on any other prostitution rings. She tries it alone but finally is forced to seek the help of Spencer and his fellow team members then slowly her vulnerability starts to show as well as her building passion for Spencer.
Worth my credit? Definitely - it's got a lot to it, but it may have been even more enjoyable if I'd first listened to the others and in order.
I have been waiting for this book to be recorded since we first met Arizona and Spencer! I think Jim Frangione does a great job, and originally found this series by searching through the books he has recorded. I really enjoyed the story and the buildup of Arizona and Spencer's relationship.
I bought this book because I loved the first three in the series but this is quite different. It is VERY slow, in fact 95% of the book is about Arizona's catharsis. It's really only about Spencer trying to help Arizona come to terms with her past and move on. All very admirable but there is no real story beyond that and nothing really happens. Not really helped by the narrator who reads very slowly.
Even the characters are not as engaging as those in the first three books. I found Arizona to be intensely annoying and couldn't understand why Spencer fell in love with her or why the other characters were so desperate to make her part of their family. She is ungrateful, constantly pushes people away, puts herself purposely in danger..... not a character I ever really cared about.
I persevered with the book, hoping it would pick up but......... it never did. It's a very poor relation to the other books in the series. If you loved Jackson, Trace and Dare don't look for the same kind of book here. If you are looking for some action and adventure with your romance you you might want to look elsewhere.
Tell us about yourself!
I had been looking forward to this when the third book in the series had some pretty good humor. Unfortunately, I agree with Dee. Spent too much time on Arizona's issues. This book had the most potential thinking that Arizona and Spencer both appeared to have some personality but in the end fell short.
And for some reason, the narrator read sooooo slow. Like each sentence needed to be dramatized. UUUhhggg...
I have listened to the whole series now and I really liked them all. They are very predicatable but if you love strong men and hot love you'll love these books.
hell yes ! this is a great book for exploreing characters that are dealing with past trumas but are also strong and indepentdent not needy and clingy
every time arizona kicked someone's butt or discovered that others cared.
arizona for sure
learning to trust and discovering you belong
great and fav of the series so far
I love that all the characters in the series revisit. The dynamics between Arizona and Spencer is wonderful. It's fascinating to see them grow and heal.
Different narrorator. This man is aweful. He pauses in the wrong places and his tone never changes. Not sure I'll be able to finish. Total waste of credit
