He's big. He's bad. And he only wants one thing. Revenge. Ric Ryker spent years being called "Big Dick." Ridiculed for his weight, shunned by all the pretty girls, snubbed by all the cool guys. But after a secret journey of transformation, he's back - ready to take over leadership from his father at Ryker Arms - with an impressive new physique and a plan to prove them all wrong.

It seemed as though the narrator was in a race to see how quickly she could get to the end of this book. And what was with the awful music between chapters. As for the story and characters, I just did not like them very much. He turned out to be a type of bully, and she seemed very weak. However, the subject matter was different and could have been interesting.

I disliked Gretchen more and more as the story progressed. A little teasing and smart- mouthing is fine for awhile, but not for an entire book. Her continually making joking remarks kept getting her in trouble but she never learned. I just found this character annoying.

Something strange is happening in the small mountain town of Serenity, Tennessee. People going on routine errands never reach their destination. It's as if they simply disappear. Over the past few weeks, it's happened to five men and women - and now a child. The local police chief calls the FBI, and a team from the Special Crimes Unit is immediately sent in. Agents Lucas and Samantha Jordan, partners in work and in life, have very different abilities.

There was more talk than action . I wanted to hear how footsteps in the mud disappeared and what happened after the little girl walked out of her kitchen. How did the missing get where they ended up. How did the UNSUB prepare their hiding place. However, the narration was excellent.

Only wish authors would use popular phrases correctly. Such as: if someone THINKS something will happen, then they may have another THINK coming, NOT another THING coming.

Would you try another book from Lorelei James and/or Hunter Millbrook and Claire Kilpatrick ?

Yes

What was most disappointing about Lorelei James’s story?

The role reversal.

What about Hunter Millbrook and Claire Kilpatrick ’s performance did you like?

They were very good.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Knowing the subject matter....no, I would not. It was hard enough reading it.

Any additional comments?

i thought the female lead came off as just plain mean at times. At the end of the book I was left wondering how that baby girl was going to be raised.

Almost passed this one up because of bad reviews about the narrator. But I took a chance and bought it. I am very glad I did. I found both male and female narrators excellent, and although the story was not as appealing as the first 3 books in the series, it was still very good.

It was difficult to listen to this at times since the narrator whispered most of the male dialogue. This whispering did not sound male and made it impossible to listen to it without continually changing the volume. Too bad since the story earned five stars from me.

If you could sum up Insidious in three words, what would they be?

surprising, confusing, great ending

Who was your favorite character and why?

Travis..he appeared more honest than almost everyone else involved with Victoria

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

She had a unique way of dealing with problems.

Any additional comments?

When I finally reached the last paragraph, all I could think was "What is this?" I had to listen again to the epilogue and think back on the story until I finally got it. Then I thought it was really a great ending and actually proved the title. Great story and great last line. If you don't read the entire story, you probably won't get the end.
