Publisher's Summary

When Krista catches her boss doing the unthinkable, the only thing she can do is run - straight into the arms of the eye candy she's been trying not to flirt with on her lunch break. But whose side is he on?

Ryan's security firm is having a hard time getting off the ground, and this may be just the job to help the company out. But pseudo-bounty hunter isn't really what Pierce Securities is trying to get a name for. When he finds out their target is the classy lady from the park, all of Ryan's senses go on high alert. What do these men want with her?

Krista is forced into Ryan's sanctuary in the woods, where she realizes just how wild he is, but she doesn't want to tame him. He may feel his methods of protection endangered her, but without Krista in his life, Ryan is crazed.

This is book number one in Pierce Securities, a romantic suspense series by Anne Conley, author of Stories of Serendipity and The Four Winds.

Voice

Sarah Grant has a voice that needs to be heard often. More authors need her.
The book itself was great suspense, romance in an under current way. Just enough mystery to keep things interesting. I'm hoping the next book is as good.

Charming Narrator

What would have made Craze better?

The story lacked tension. Every time the bad guy got close, it just didn't go anywhere and fizzled out. Until the bad guy kidnapped the heroine and then it got really dark. The writing was occasionally clumsy.

Which character – as performed by Sarah Grant – was your favorite?

I liked almost all of the characters. The hero didn't quite do it for me, but I thought the rendition of the heroine was good.

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

The narrator. More charming than the story deserved.

Narrator -- ugh

I couldn't finish it. I just could not handle the mispronunciation of basic words. And then the monotone....

This was a good listen!!

This was a good book. I like some intrigue with my love stories so it is up my alley!! I liked Ryan and Krista, and their story a lot. There were a couple of things I questioned while listening, but it didn’t deter me from enjoying the book! This was a new author for me, and I liked her writing.

It was also my first Sarah Grant listen, and I liked her raspy voice. Her male characters were excellent and her southern accents were perfect!

great story

Krista's Life changed from office accountant to a person in hiding. What she walked into and saw in her boss's office made her go on the run. Ryan worked for a security firm ended up to protect her! this story is emotional, dangerous action packed.

Is a future possible when her life is threatened?

Craze is the first book in the Pierce Securities series. Krista is on the run after catching her boss doing something extremely illegal. Ryan’s security firm has been hired to catch Krista, but as soon as he meets her, he knows there’s more to the story than he was told. Learning to trust one another, Krista and Ryan are battling not just danger chasing them, but their desires, too. Is it possible to find a happy future when her life is threatened?

I really enjoyed listening to this story! There’s so much that happens in this romance, between the drama, the danger, and the romance, but I absolutely loved Krista and Ryan! I really enjoyed that Krista wasn’t afraid to go after what she wanted and she had a ton of inner strength! Ryan really had to battle his own self and his own desires, wanting to keep Krista safe and secure, but wanting to claim her as his own. The danger element in this book had me on the edge of my seat and I was so curious about what would happen next! Ms. Grant did a fantastic job with narrating this book! There were many voices, I enjoyed the accent, and I loved the emotions that she gave each character! This book kept me engaged and excited and I look forward to listening or reading more in this series!

Pretty good.

This story was good but some of the writing was off for me. Such as, these security guys protecting and hiding her from the bad guys let her use her phone to call her friend and make plans even after they said the phone had been tampered with. I did like the “good” characters in this book. The narration was ok. There were some technical issues. 🎧Audiobook Obsession.

enjoyed

I loved listening to Sarah Grant.

This is my first book of Anne Conley, and I have to say I did enjoy listening to this story.

We have suspense, murder, oh yes romance. Hot chemistry between the two main characters. Krista is finds herself in trouble and being chased my Ryan,

Ryan's senses soon releases that not all seems right. He finds himself protecting Krista.

Stand alone story

I had a tough time rating this one because I really liked the storyline a lot, but at times the language used felt, at least to me, disproportionately raw/crude/basic. For example, my first impression of Ryan was that he might be a psychopath bad guy since his thoughts about Krista (who he had never even met) were a little extreme.

Sarah Grant was a new narrator for me. She was good, but there were some editing issues that were distracting from the story. I would listen to another book by her in case the editing issues were a one-time thing.

Craze

A well written, intriguing, suspenseful story, with strong likeable characters. I loved the action, I loved the pace. I love security men in general :) ... The narration by Sarah Grant was well done and brought these characters to life.

Craze

Craze is my first book by Anne Conley. It is the story of Krista and Ryan. It held my attention from beginning to end. There was a lot of suspense and danger along with some likable characters and a hot and sexy romance. I'm looking forward to listening to more of this series in the future. Sarah Grant did a good job bringing this story to life.

🎧Reviewed for Audiobook Obsession 🎧

Intrigue, suspense, action, romance, but could have a trigger for some, beware. Characters are well developed and I’m sure we will here more from them in the continuing series Pierce Securities.
Sarah Grant was the narrator for Craze.
