This book is a disappointment. Story is drawn out beyond necessity (Hardt: I know you wanted a series, but know when enough is enough for each book). There was a change of narrators, which was sad. I enjoyed the first three books in the series, but after book four I am not sure if I will finish the series.

He was someone who belonged in my wildest fantasies instead of a rest stop in the middle of Nebraska. A sexy, cocky Australian named Chance was the last person I expected to run into on my cross-country drive. When my car broke down, we made a deal. Next thing I knew, we were traveling together, spending sexually tense nights in hotels, and taking unplanned detours. My ordinary road trip turned into the adventure of a lifetime. It was all fun and games until things got intense.

I gave it two stars, but it only reflects listening to the first two chapters. The audio is not clear. I kept wondering where the narrators were located when they gave voice to the characters in the book. I will attempt to listen a while longer, but may not be able to continue for long. For the authors’ sakes, I hope other readers are more tolerant.

This was my second time listening to books 1-3, and my first time listening to book #4. Number four three me a little at first since the voice inflections for the narration seemed different. I grew use to the difference, and still enjoyed the listening experience.

***SPOILER ALERT ***

I enjoyed Jessie’s and Ava’s journey, though
I was saddened by the fact that the only (?) African-American in the storyline, John, did not find the happiness he deserved and was killed. That occurrence gave me food for thought.

I lived in the dark for three years. My whole world revolved around the whims and happiness of three men. It was just a trip into the forbidden. A way out of a bad situation and forward into nothingness. Quin, with his easy smile and charming good looks. He was always there for me...until he wasn't. Smith and his dispassionate attention. He was never there for me and he never regretted it. Bric, the one who listened, but only to himself. Self-absorbed, self-obsessed, and self-serving. He was never the one I wanted. And now he might be the only one I have left.

I do not want to ruin it for readers by including spoilers. I will just say if you like a good story line, well developed and interesting characters, and a backdrop of would-I-dare heat, then listen to The Turning Series. I have purchased books one and two, and look forward to book three (finale).

Hollywood bad boy Brad Sinclair always gets his way, whether it's the role he wants or the bikini-clad model he has to have. But when a bombshell gets dropped in his lap in the form of a dimpled five-year-old from a forgotten relationship, he knows his life is about to change forever. Cara DuMont isn't exactly thrilled when she gets assigned to be the nanny for the latest box-office king. She has one rule: no celebrity fathers, especially single ones with devilish good looks and rock-hard abs.

Writer's block is killing his spirit and jeopardizing his contracts with his publisher and his Hollywood producers. Prodded by his agent, Gavin reluctantly agrees to see Allie Nichols, a sassy physical therapist tasked with treating the novelist's severe neck and shoulder pain - and maybe his writer's block, too.

It was an interesting series; however, after investing much time and emotion into listening to the series, getting to know the characters, and trying to understand their lifestyles, the ending of this particular novel left me unsatisfied. In addition, it disappointed me that Red allowed her Brie character to waver in her belief in Sir, when a major threat was foisted upon them. Maybe my faith in the series will be restored via books 12 and 13.

Regarding performance, was there more than one narrator? In my opinion, It seemed there were.

Readers be warned...this is a sick and disturbing story. It will illicit anger and cause intense loathing of the character "Anthony". He is one sick bastard! (Please excuse the term.)

Be prepared for Stockholm Syndrome, although the main victim's state varies slightly from one of the four key components that defines the syndrome.

Unfortunately, I have been drawn into the storyline. I am now fighting the urge to continue to the next installments of the series just to gain closure.

Storyline: enjoyed, though some areas in the series dragged a bit.
Female lead: disappointing, particularly beginning in the second book. Without giving too many spoilers, I became very agitated with the stupid, dangerous decisions made by Livy. This was to the point that as a female reading books two and three, I felt insulted. Even in the world of fiction, Livy should have ended up in the hospital more than once and Miller dead, due to several of her decisions. I cannot help but wonder what the author was thinking?
Credits to author: causing enough emotions in me to read the entire series and submit a review. Once I calm down and push my psyche deeper into fiction, I will read the series again to see what I may have missed; though, I'm sure it will be a while.
