Publisher's Summary

Lisa Jackson is a New York Times best-selling author of suspenseful, erotic thrillers. In Hot Blooded, she transports listeners into the heart of New Orleans, where a deluded murderer is on a holy quest of vengeance. Dr. Samantha Leeds hosts her own late-night radio talk-show on WSLJ. One day she receives a menacing phone call at her home, while miles away, a prostitute is strangled to death. Seemingly unrelated, nobody connects the two events until more murders occur under similar circumstances. Dr. Sam soon realizes that someone from her past is stalking towards her, armed with a rosary and a deep-seeded hatred. Sam must rely on her wits, and a friendship with her mysterious new neighbor, Ty Wheeler, if she wants to escape the killer's wrath. Filled with sensational suspense, Hot Blooded is a sizzling departure from the usual romance novel. Alyssa Bresnahan's steamy narration takes listeners deep into the murky Bayou swamps and the terrifying secrets within.

Cold Boredom

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

If you'd like a vaguely mysterious mystery with a heroine who "knows she shouldn't but just can't help herself" this is the book for you.

Has Hot Blooded turned you off from other books in this genre?

I'm not sure what genre this is supposed to be...is there a sub genre of romance/thrillers?<br/>I will avoid romance/thrillers at all costs!

What aspect of Alyssa Bresnahan’s performance would you have changed?

A bit more distinctive voices between the characters would have been a helpful touch.

What character would you cut from Hot Blooded?

I could not identify with the main character Samantha or understand why she was motivated to act like an idiot. I would remove her and replace her with a credible character with some depth.

Any additional comments?

I was unable to get through more than 1/3 of this book before giving it up as a lost cause.

Good book, bad narrator

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, but I would tell them to read it instead

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Alyssa Bresnahan?

Anyone but Alyssa Bresnahan. You can hear her swallow and click her teeth though the whole book. Very annoying, ruined the whole book.

Great listen

If you could sum up Hot Blooded in three words, what would they be?

You won't want to stop listening

You forget that she's one person reading the story and just get engrossed.

Yes

My first Lisa Jackson book

I will listen to her again. I really liked it. She did well combining the differenent characters from previous 'lives' to bring them all together at a certain place and time. DID NOT see the ending coming at all....which I love in a good mystery! Well done Ms. Jackson.

Good Story, narrator is boring

The book had a great plot line with wonderful twists to it. I recommend this book if you can tolerate the reader. Most of the time she reads the book with the cadence of William Shatner, start, stop...with little appropriate emotion where it should be. I wish she had made a difference in the character voices too.

Interesting Book, Narrator not so great

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Might suggest they read the book, not listen.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Pretty predictable, might have cut out some of the "thoughts of Sam". They were tiresome<br/>

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Drug things out, trying too hard to be "suspenseful", terrible male voices

Was Hot Blooded worth the listening time?

actually skipped some of the middle of the book, and that helped

Hot Blooded
