Publisher's Summary

A killer stalks the city streets, and one FBI agent is determined to bring him down in Janie Crouch's Primal Instinct. On the crowded streets of San Francisco, a serial killer watches and waits. Known only as Simon Says, he lures his next victim while the FBI grasps for answers. Desperate, they turn to Adrienne Jeffries. Adrienne has an uncanny talent for getting inside the city's most dangerous minds. But first she'll have to get past FBI agent Conner Perigo. Skeptical of Adrienne's abilities, Conner begrudgingly enlists her help...unprepared for the powerful attraction that could jeopardize their focus. With little time and everything to lose, they must work to find Simon's next victim - before he does.

Mixed Feelings

I had mixed feelings about this audiobook. At first, I loved it and couldn't stop listening. I loved the psychic versus serial killer premise and the characters. It seemed really suspenseful and held my attention. However, about halfway through, it started to become predictable and unbelievable. The author made it pretty obvious who the killer was, and even the "surprise" twist at the end was somewhat predictable. I became frustrated when characters did things that were either unbelievable in order to further the plot or would make them the worst FBI agents in history. I don't want to give spoilers, so I'll just say they figured out something about the killer that should have made them not trust the person who turned out to be the killer, but who do they trust the most? The person who turns out to be the killer, of course! I don't know if this was an early book of hers. I really feel like she has a lot of potential, and I liked enough it to try some of her other romantic suspense books.

The narration was pretty good. It wasn't my favorite, but it wasn't bad, either.

Romance and a Serial Killer!

Interesting story! Loved the serial killer angle, and it's not completely obvious who it is, but I did have who it was on my suspects list. The suspense was fun! There's also a cool sort of psychic angle that was great, and I liked how the story unfolds. I did like the romance, but I didn't really see what drew Adrienne to Connor in the beginning. I wish there was a little more to the romance angle of the story. Connor is an FBI agent, who is tasked with bringing in Adrienne to help find a serial killer. Adrienne can feel evil in people and items, and Connor is unbelieving, so he's a bit of a butt to her. The story has a good build up, and I liked all of the characters. The characters are a little stiff, but still likable. The writing could've flowed a little better, but all in all, I really enjoyed the story. I listened to Primal Instinct on the Romance Audible Package, and I liked the listening experience.
