This much we do know: Sophie Toscan du Plantier was murdered days before Christmas in 1996, her broken body discovered at the edge of her property near the town of Schull in West Cork, Ireland. The rest remains a mystery. Gripping, yet ever elusive, join the real-life hunt for answers in the year’s first not-to-be-missed, true-crime series.

I'm a true crime podcast nut, and this just fell short. It was mildly interesting, but overall it was 7 hours of nothing. Sad I wasted a credit on this.

So you may ask, who is Adam Connor? He is the recently divorced, Academy Award-winning actor who just moved in next door with his kid. He also happens to be an exquisite male specimen and the most infuriating sly bastard I've ever come across. While I was being thoughtful by not breaking and entering, and was actually considering going over to offer him a shoulder to cry on (you know, because of his divorce), instead he had me thrown in jail after a small incident. Jail, people!

Colton stole my heart. He wasn't supposed to, and I sure as hell didn't want him to, but he crashed into my life, ignited feelings within me that I thought had died forever, and fueled a passion that I never knew could exist. Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet and into my life. Now I don't think I'll ever be the same. She's seen glimpses of the darkness within me, and yet she's still here. Still fighting for me. She is without a doubt the saint and I am most definitely the sinner.

I was so sad when I heard who was narrating Colton. I had to turn it off. This is one of my favorite book series, and Sean Crisden is okay, but not for a hot super complicated alpha. So sad I'll miss this one.

I've never been afraid of the dark...but that doesn't mean I wanted to live in it. Maybe everyone wants what they can't have, but I should've thought it over before I unlocked the door to their forbidden world. Number One is mostly silent. He watches me very carefully. Number Two is mostly gentle. But it's the other side of him I like best. Number Three is mostly reserved. It was carnal, it was sensual, and it was erotic. That's it. That's all it was supposed to be. A trip into the dark. A peek into the forbidden. I just didn't expect to like them.

I feel bad writing a mediocre review after the author's verbal message at the end of this audio book, because she seems really cool, and her explanation into her characters was great. Having said that, I wish that came out in the book. This book was very slow for me for about 2/3's of it. I felt the characters were a bit flat and then bam it felt rushed. Just didnt have a great flow. The cast of narrators was top notch. Sadly, if I hadnt paid $20 for it I would have stopped listening, and I'm glad I didnt. The end makes it worth it, but be patient.

Guilt, hate, anger, fear - all these emotions are a dangerous concoction. Too bad every single one of them runs through my veins, just waiting to break through. I refuse to let him win. I refuse to be the woman I've been for the past few months. No more. Revenge will be mine.

The story was great. I’m loving this series of books. Unfortunately the male narrator kind of ruined it for me. All of a sudden Ravage MC has the tone and accent of a New York monster. I felt like he was in an episode of the Sopranos, not in Sumner Georgia. I would’ve enjoyed this way more with different narrators.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

People who like women to be verbally abused and humiliated.

Has Undeniable turned you off from other books in this genre?

No. Just from this author.

What does Tatiana Sokolov bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She was fantastic.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No. It was poorly developed with dangling story lines. The characters were not dark, they were truly abusive and sick.

Any additional comments?

I love dark and gritty. This was not that.

I do what I want and who I want. I don't follow anyone's rules-even my own. I knew I shouldn't touch her, but it didn't stop me. Didn't stop me the second time either. Only made me want a third. My lifestyle suits the savage I am, and she doesn't. But Temperance Ransom is my newest addiction, and I'm nowhere near ready to quit her yet. I'll have her my way, even if it means dragging her into the darkness. Hopefully it doesn't kill us both.

Would you try another book from Meghan March and/or Grace Grant and Joe Arden ?

Yes, I usually love her, buthis was disappointing.

What didn’t you like about Grace Grant and Joe Arden ’s performance?

Grace Grant is okay but her narration often times doesnt suit the tone or mood of the scene. She raises the emnds of sentences when its not a question, and her male voices are just awful. There was literally only one or two sentences from Joe Arden.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Complete disappointment as it was not a complete book. It eas a great first half of the first book.

Grant Malone is not the reason I moved back to Sunnyville - at least that’s what I tell myself. Yet, those parting words I said to him back in third grade ring in my ears every time a towns-person brings up one of the Malone boys. I thought time had healed my wounds. I was wrong. Nothing could have prepared me for how I felt when I finally saw him again. Twenty years does a lot to turn a boy into a man. One who hits all my buttons - sexy, funny, attractive, and a police officer.

The story was emotional and moving. The narrators dang near ruined this book. The female either puts an upward inflection on the end of every word making it sound almost Question like or she drags the end of words down. The male sounds like a computer voice with his inflections. Their only redeeming part was when they spoke as they were children.

What disappointed you about Beloved?

The narration was horrible. She made the heroine and her friends sound like whiney brainless twits. I listened to Consolation and Conviction first and there is no comparison to Andie Arnt and Sebastian York. Too bad.

What could Corinne Michaels have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Chosen another narrator and the female lead needs to be less of a wimp.

How could the performance have been better?

Have a male and female and dont make every female sound like a sorority girl.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Well, I didnt even finish the book so I think that says it all.
