Would you try another book from Sandra Brown and/or Jan Maxwell?

Jan yes, Sandra no

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not sure

What about Jan Maxwell’s performance did you like?

yes

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. Totally irrational character behavior. In her recent books she starts out fine and about halfway through everyone starts behaving insanely--as if she had to finish the book in one day! No more. Too bad, I have read all up to now.

Any additional comments?

Seems like she is just throwing junk out there to make a few bucks on her early reputation.

Any additional comments?

Sandra Brown is over the hill, needed a quick buck or did not write this book. I have read everything she ever wrote. This is awful and must be embarrassing to her.

Stone Barrington is back in New York, and after a rather harrowing sojourn in Key West, he's looking to stay closer to home and work on some simple divorce and custody cases for Woodman & Weld. But when he crosses paths with a fetching Broadway actress-and sometime lip model- Stone gets a little more deeply involved with business than he'd expected. When his new lady love turns out to be a lady with a shady past, Stone and downtown cop Dino Bacchetti realize that her beauty may have an unusually high price.

Woods has trashed the elegant Stone and made him into a sexual freak, along with every woman he meets. If he wants to learn how to write about sex he should read Sandra Brown. Shame on you Stuart Woods.
