"Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

Have you listened to any of Jill Redfield’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Have never listened to her before but thought she was brilliant. So often the narrator simple reads the book. She portrayed the characters and read as one would in their head. She was definitely a big plus.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Very difficult putting it a way for a while. I didn't want to stop listening and I didn't want the story to end.

When Alexis Ames is attacked by creatures that can't be real, she decides it's time she learns who she really is, with or without the help of her mother, who guards their family's secrets closely. After meeting the inhumanly attractive, multi-talented Tristan Knight, however, Alexis retreats behind her façade of normalcy...until she discovers he's not exactly normal either. Then their secrets begin to unravel.

Would you listen to Promise again? Why?

Yes, In fact I am hoping to listen to the next installment soon.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration was good. The main character tended to be a bit whiney for my liking. I was reading along at times when I couldn't listen and I didn't feel the character was as whiney as portrayed.

It is Nick and Amy Dunne's fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick's clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn't doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media - as well as Amy's fiercely doting parents - the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he's definitely bitter - but is he really a killer?

Any additional comments?

This book never took off for me. I was waiting for it to get going the whole time. All my friends said to keep going that I would get into it. That never happened.
