Book 2 was an interesting continuation of the Jane storyline. The narrator did a good job. A few mispronounced words here and there and a couple of character voice changes missed but not enough to make me want to stop listening. No overt sexual content in this book and descriptions of the violence were not graphic, so I would let my teen daughter read.

Interesting start to the series. The narrator is pretty good. Misses character changes sometimes but not enough to be annoying. This book has no overt sexual content so I would have no reason to not let my teen daughter read it if she wished too.

His volatile tendencies have put Charley in a bit of a pickle. But that's not the only briny vegetable on her plate.

Well this book just drug for the first 2/3's. The UST and such between Liam and Claire got really annoying till the end. This book was def a filler to lead to the next (last??) book. Audiobook.... I really hate when the same reader forgets their voices between books. It was very distracting. I guess part of the problem is that I just started this series and there was no time between books so I noticed these differences more.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I truly dislike when series change narrators mid series. I understand sometimes it is necessary, but there needs to be more care with choosing the new narrator. Sophie just cannot do male voices and there are many in this series. Most were very similar and they all sounded exhausted or bored. The only one it worked with was the Grandfather. The rest just annoyed me. Luckily the stories kept my interest when I otherwise would have dropped the series based on the new narrator. I gave the performance a three since her female voices were good.

Any additional comments?

Hard to believe its over. Some was predictable but a few things came out of left field as well. I wonder if, by the way she ended it, if there might be a novella or two to come from her.

This book isn't quite up to normal standards. The story itself was ok, nothing great. The male they decided to use was horrible. Voices sounded fake. Please don't use him again. Story was too much everyone else and not enough Mercy
