I loved every character in this book! Because of the narrator!
The killer was just sick enough, making him so easy to hate.
One thi..Show More »ng I didn’t understand, or like, was how often Cam and Sophia were in bed together, every chapter or two, when in actuality they had broken up months ago. Why did we keep jumping into the past? I didn’t really get that. It really didn’t hurt the story but it did seem extremely unnecessary.
Oh, I did love, love, love Cam and Sophia. They tried so hard to be business-like but couldn’t keep their minds focused all the time. You could tell they had fallen in love during the weeks they were together but neither of them thought it would work so they went their separate ways. Although, it was actually Sophia that called it quits.
Their chemistry was so great, throughout the story. And there were some exciting bedroom scenes, too. There was swearing and the F-bomb was released 27 times.
The mystery and murder and mayhem this guy caused was a thrilling and exciting storyline. I’ve never read this author before but she’s awesome. Even though this was a CLIFFHANGER that I wasn’t aware of, because I despise cliffhangers, I’ve already got the other 2 books in the series and I can’t wait to get started on them.
As to the narrator: When I can just listen to a book without saying to myself “geez, this narrator sucks,” then that’s a good narrator. And when she reads with such terrific emotions, then it’s really good. And when everyone has their own voice, then it’s just excellent. When the bad guy had thoughts or was talking to himself Kate Zane was just awesome. He sounded like a madman was supposed to, and when he talked to Sophie it was just so horrible and thrilling all at once. I enjoyed every second of this book, thanks to the narrator. When narration can make me buy 2 more books of a cliffhanger series that really says a lot about the author.
Ok, the bad guy in Chasing Evil was truly a sexual deviant BUT Sonny (his name is mentioned right off the bat so telling you his name is not a spoiler..Show More »), our bad guy in this book, was totally sickening since he was a necrophiliac. OMG! That is so disgusting. I guess you could call it a plus that the body had been embalmed before he got busy with it. Again, I’m so glad the author doesn’t describe what he and the corpse are doing. Ewww.
Again, during this book Cam and Sophie are fighting there attraction but since Sophie came so close to having a horrible ending in the last book she’s not fighting her feelings so much in this book. When she finally told Cam about her feelings I was so glad. Oh, she didn’t tell him she loved him but it was close enough, for now.
I’d also like to compliment this author on her sex scene. It did go on for pages and pages BUT it was sweet and so romantic WITHOUT all the stupid things that so many other authors have lovers saying to each other, you know, all that crap you roll your eyes at and say, “who talks like that?” Cam and Sophie are attracted to each other but there wasn’t an ounce of sexual tension in this book.
There was swearing and the F-bomb was used 26 times.
I do like Gavin and Lucy and it did become exciting when Gavin was shot and Lucy was taken by Sonny.
As to the narration: I just realized why I enjoyed this narrator. She doesn’t read with ‘sometimes’ emotions. She reads every word, every sentence, every paragraph with emotions. That’s why I enjoyed every word of the last book, Chasing Evil, as well as this one. Whether it Cam’s smooth sexy voice or Sophie’s soft, calming and cultured tone or the killer’s evil, cunning, creepy, whiny, laughing, well you get what I mean, Kate Zane just does it all through the whole book.
