The story is watered down and bleached out JR Ward.
Frankly, i dont think she authored this one.
Most likely an intern penned this one.
Performance was top notch JF as usual. His narration saved the story.

Audio version is Abridged with "Go To The PDF For Details" throughout the reading.
I bought this book for the diet plan and the details in its implementation.
The audio book does not go in depth into the diet plan at all.
The audiobook is more about the exercise program, the motivation for the weight loss journey, the excuses of modern society failure to properly educate the masses on nutrition, blah,blah,blah.
Apparently (maybe) the text version of the book expands on the actual diet ,specific foods. timing, and recipes because throughout most of the audiobook's chapters PDF'S are referenced and the salient topics are skipped.
This audiobook is a return

Divorce lawyer Victoria Slade has seen enough unhappy endings to swear off marriage forever. That doesn't mean she's opposed to casual dating - just not with her cocky new neighbor, who is as gorgeous and tempting as he is off-limits. But once she agrees to take on his sister's case, she's as determined to win as ever - even if that means teaming up with Ford....

It has been passed down through the ages, highly coveted, hidden, lost, stolen, and bought for vast sums of money. Fragments of this Great Secret have been found in the oral traditions, in literature, in religions and philosophies throughout the centuries. In this audiobook you will discover the Secret, and you will learn how to have, do, or be anything you want.

A rumor has persisted in the vampire world of a dark slayer - a woman - who travels with a wolf pack and who destroys any vampire who crosses her path. Mysterious, elusive and seemingly impossible to kill, she is the one hunter who strikes terror into the hearts of the undead. She is Ivory Malinov. Her only brethren, the wolves. Long ago betrayed by her people, abandoned by her family, and cast out by everyone she held dear, Ivory has lived centuries without companionship or love.

Dark Slayer by Phil Gigante & Jane Brown

Reviewed: 07-01-10

Poorly performed with THICK difficult to understand Russian accents. The female voice has a distracting parkinsonian tremor that better identifies with an aging gypsy fortuneteller rather than a the book's heroine. This production of Dark Slayer is most disappointing and definitely Not recommended.
