I'm not an expert on audible books, but I do listen to quite a few. This book made me roll my eyes atleast 20 times. If "in his minds eye" or "in her minds eye" was said one more time my itouch would be thrown into the fireplace! Running Scared by Lisa Jackson seems like a rushed write and edited even quicker. The man narrating this book could be the next Guy Smiley or some other game show host. Easily, one of the worst listens I've had in a long time.

Trace O'Hurley had turned his back on responsibility and commitment long ago. Now he lived the way he wanted, did what he wanted when he wanted. But that was all going to change.

This book was a waste of time. Not only was the story line boring and without enough gripping background, but the characters lack chemistry. The love interest is shallow and there isn't any pull toward one another, yet they end up in a romance. It is simply terrible writing. I listen to many books & this ranks at the bottom. Do not purchase.
