Publisher's Summary

Irony wears a disingenuous smile.

Ren Lewis, who has faced every danger known to man, is about to meet a challenge he’s convinced has the power to undo him. When he discovers that his daughter, Adelaide, has been hiding a pregnancy he goes into hiding himself. 

Having a daughter was one catastrophe Ren struggled with. But now, being expected to welcome her baby into his home is not something Ren knows how to assimilate into his life. 

With a new ferocity he throws himself into his work in order to avoid family responsibility. And there’s enough work to keep him occupied with Vivian Bishop trying to infiltrate American homes, intent on controlling and manipulating their residents. 

Ren soon realizes that Vivian is his perfect enemy. She’s strategic, brilliant, and stunningly beautiful. 

In this third installment, the monster in Ren will have to do the unspeakable. He will have to evolve. Nothing in his life can be approached employing any of the strategies he’s used before. The evolution of Ren might be his undoing, but it might also be the one thing that brings him real happiness.

Ren is such a good Bad Guy!

By Sarah Roffke
Narrated by Tim Campbell

I've fallen head first into this series. Just going through them like candy bars. I love Ren's foul mouthed comments and grumpy demeanor. The character development in this book was spot on. It wasnt so bold that we lost what we love and it wasnt so subtle that we missed it.

If you're a sensitive or easily offended type person, then I'd advise you to steer clear of this one. Ren drops so many F-bombs and "controversial" jabs that I thought I was listening to the English version of Dave Chappelle 🤣.

For me, I haven't really seen Ren as the bad guy. However, in this book he really shows the qualities that could make someone hate him. I didnt agree with his actions and that made me more eager to see what happens. He doesnt handle the pregnancy well at all. The scene in the hospital almost broke my heart and I wanted him get slapped!

But that is what a good book is all about. It brings out your emotions and makes you really feel something towards the characters. I'm all in for this one. I'll be listening to every single one. Not sure why some reviewers are saying this is the last one because I've got two more showing up in this series.

Now there were some things that I found a little annoying:

1.The first is the villian in this book. The villian who is as smart and analytical as Ren wouldn't be beaten so easily. Also, villains that smart would back a Plan B and a Plan C. It felt like the author was running out of time and just had to end it where she was before the shot clock ran out.

2. How come we've never heard the lyrics to any of Deliah's songs?

3. How come the paparazzi dont harrass Ren? He is dating a pop star, right?

4. Why is Deliah 40 years old but all of her fans are still referred to as teenagers?

It appears that Ren is part of a larger story. I'm only assuming it's about Trey and his kids since he is the boss. After I finish bn up Ren's series then I'll check out the other stories. It's hard to imagine listening to something about Dreamwalkers and him not being the lead character. I'll have to see how it goes.

Narrator is perfect for this series.

3 Stars 🌟🌟🌟- Good Book. I like the overall concept and it was delivered well. Most common ranking for a book I enjoyed and look forward to the next.

Cruel but funny main character, great narration

This is the third novel in Sarah Noffke’s Ren series, which is part of her Dream Traveler universe. The main character, Ren, is a classic antihero: arrogant, selfish, and cruel. I normally dislike stories about antiheroes, but Ren is smart and irresistibly snarky, with just enough love and loyalty for those he cares about to give him a shot at redemption. It’s a compelling combination.

The plot was interesting and kept me guessing. I enjoyed the mystery and suspense. As with previous books in this series, I also enjoyed the characterization and the humorous dialog. Ren is so mean sometimes, I’m embarrassed to admit that he makes me laugh and I am developing a certain fondness for him.

I was captivated by Tim Campbell’s narration. His pacing is good and I enjoy his character voices. The voice and British accent he uses for Ren is perfect for Ren’s snarky comments, and probably made the story more enjoyable for me than if I had read it myself. I definitely recommend the audiobook.

I was given a free copy of this audiobook by the author and volunteered to provide an honest review.

Brilliant book

This 3rd audiobook in the REN series does not disappoint, the evolution of the characters, the humour, heartbreak, intrigue and suspense will not let you put this captivating audiobook down. Not only does Ren have to navigates the turbulent waters of becoming both a father and a grandfather, but he must also discover the mole within the Lucidite Institute and defeat the brilliant Vivian before her plans, for both him and the middlings, come to fruition. The excellent narrator breaths life into these amazing characters and he hits the accents, nuances and emotions just right. This is a heart wrenching, exciting story. The twists and turns in the the plot, the growth, and the roller coaster of emotions the author and narrator takes us on is simply amazing. Tim Campbell did an amazing job with Ren's accent and the portrayal of his abrasive, yet appealing personality. From Ren himself, to Adelaide, Dalia and even Vivian, the maturation and depth of character shown is excellent, and yet the author still managed to keep their individual quirks and personalities intact throughout the evolution. I loved how characters from her other series were interweaved in the book, not only enhancing the story but also adding depth to the Dream Traveller world as a whole, and helping the reader form a cohesive timeline between the various books. I love Ren’s character. His caustic wit, arrogance, dry sarcastic comments, brilliant mind and flawed personality has kept us laughing, made us want to strangle him, but has also caused our hearts to break. This amazing, emotion filled book has left me dying for the next audiobook in the series.
