Characters too extreme

The overall story is compelling, however the characters are a little over-the-top in personalities. Way too innocent or way to mean-spirited making them less believable.

I'd love to hear it read with a different narrator

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I think the book would have been 2 hours shorter if he didn't pause every couple of words.

Any additional comments?

I'm a Sandra Brown fan through and through. I stuck with it, in spite of the narrator, because it's a nice story.

Could have been better

The story plot was not bad. The structure of the story, if I'm saying this correctly, was off for me. I liked Lauren until she said she loved Jared after Jared had been nothing but horrible to her. Her love for him did not make any since. I could see how he could love her but not the other way around. I wanted to like Jared, but the author took too long in the book to make a case for me to like him. He was mean, really mean, to Lauren when it was very clear she was a good person. Jared's character needed to have been devolved into a likeable person earlier on in the book. It seemed like Lauren was victimized by everyone except the Mexican and Spanish people. They were the nicest people in this book. I'm disappointed in this story by Sandra Brown. She is a great story teller, but this book was my least favorite of her books.

Loved This Book!

Sandra Brown is one of my favorite writers. Hidden Fire is one of the many great books written by Ms. Brown.

Alot of lusty sex jargon, annoying after awhile

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

At certain parts of the book it was a good read. But alot of talk describing sexual encounters between main characters. I skipped ahead a number of times, heard that last chapter!!

Would you ever listen to anything by Sandra Brown again?

Yes I like the author, and rarely disappointed in her books, but I am with this one. I would not recommend it to anyone.

How could the performance have been better?

Yes

Was Hidden Fires worth the listening time?

Yes, but not sad that came to the end.

Enjoyed this one

You can seldom go wrong when reading Sandra Brown. This one held my interest and I loved that she mercilessly killed off a few bad guys that so deserved it.

Very predictable. Terrible stilted performance.

This is a $2 read at best. Disappointed in the pricing of this story & performance. I normally like this author, but felt like I way over-played for this Audible book.

Terrible narration!

That man who portrays jerrod sound like a very old weak man. Unlike the Man that is after Lauren!

Reader not enjoyable

The reader ruined this story for me. He was boring and sluggish. I quit listening after 10 minutes.
