Publisher's Summary

Six years ago, Lucy Kincaid was attacked and nearly killed by an online predator. She survived. Her attacker did not. Now Lucy’s goal is to join the FBI and fight cyber-crime, but in the meantime, she’s volunteering with a victim’s rights group, surfing the Web undercover to lure sex offenders into the hands of the law. But when the predators she hunts start turning up as murder victims, the FBI takes a whole new interest in Lucy.

With her future and possibly even her freedom suddenly in jeopardy, Lucy discovers she’s a pawn in someone’s twisted plot to mete out vigilante justice. She joins forces with security expert and daredevil Sean Rogan, and together they track their elusive quarry from anonymous online chat rooms onto the mean streets of Washington, D.C. But someone else is shadowing them: A merciless stalker has his savage eye on Lucy. The only way for her to escape his brutality may be another fight to the death.

What a silly book!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Actually Ann Marie Lee did a very good job!

What could Allison Brennan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Make the characters more believable. It seems that she couldn't make up her mind about whether or not Lucy was a fragile person that needed people around her to lean on for support or was actually a strong independent woman. I wish she hadn't felt the need to put a romance in the story. That's what made it so silly. I felt like I was listening to a Harlequin romance.

What about Ann Marie Lee’s performance did you like?

She has a very nice voice and reads well

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Love Me to Death?

The sappy romance.

I wanted to like this.

I tried to like this story. I need a new series and stumble on this. The main character is really hard to relate to because the author has made her to be everything rolled up into one person: victim, Olympic athlete, computer genius, criminal profiler, psychologist, marksmen...the list goes on and on and on. The rest of the story wasn't any less cliche.

The internal character monologues are all way too long and over explain every plot point. Each monologue started to feel like teenage angst, but maybe that's the author's target audience?

I ended up skipping several chapters and didn't get lost. So a chapter turner, not so much a page turner.

If you want a good crime novel, this isn't it. But if you want lots and lots and lots of character development and internal turmoil, you'll like it.

The narrator did a good job. I can't fault her for the slow moving story.

Lucy Kincaid Series

Would you listen to Love Me to Death again? Why?

Yes. This is a book I know I will reread in the future!

What other book might you compare Love Me to Death to and why?

The entire Lucy Kincaid Series

What about Ann Marie Lee’s performance did you like?

I've listened to other books narrated by Ann Marie Lee and I'm always pleased by her performance. Her voice is pleasant to listen to and she adds the appropriate intensity to what she is narrating.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Surprise by the number of twists and turns

Any additional comments?

Beside The Lucy Kincaid Series I would definitely recommend Allison Brennan's FBI Trilogy

Good story line

Would you try another book from Allison Brennan and/or Ann Marie Lee?

I liked the story but could not finish listening to it. The Narrator was horrible. She made every character sound the same..So I finished the book on my kindle reader.

Would you recommend Love Me to Death to your friends? Why or why not?

not on audio because the narrator did such a bad job, I could not stand to listen to her after the 2nd chapter.

Would you be willing to try another one of Ann Marie Lee’s performances?

No

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

I read the book on my kindle reader and loved the book.

Any additional comments?

redo all the audiobooks with a different narrator and I would listen to them.
