Publisher's Summary

Four years ago, Erin's life changed drastically. Her drug-addicted brother killed her parents, and her marriage disintegrated. Her husband Matt, an FBI agent, had done his duty when he'd arrested Stuart, but she'd been too caught up in her own grief to allow him to help her move through the shadows of pain.

Now Matt is back, but it isn't to attempt reconciliation. Her brother has escaped from Attica, and Erin is his next target. Matt will stop Stuart by any means necessary. But Stuart is a desperate man, and desperate men will do anything to get what they want.

Thrown together by treacherous circumstances, Matt and Erin fight a battle to stay alive and possibly figure out how to put the pieces of their destroyed lives back together again.

Would you recommend Extreme Measures to your friends? Why or why not?

No because of the narrator

Okay story, irritating narrator

I was a little surprised that this book got perfect reviews - granted - not reviewed by many, but seriously? The story is just okay, not any better or worse than other romantic suspense novels. But the narrator is horrible - trying way too hard to sound sexy and mysterious and the narration of the female mc makes her sound like she doesnt have any braincells at all. The book would probably be a lot better read as an actual book.

OH YA, it was great! I enjoyed the book very much and my wife liked it even more. She thought the narrator has a sexy voice and I liked all the violence.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Matt, he was a man of action. I like men who get off their asses and get moving.

CREEPY SUSPENSE DETECTIVE STORY

What made the experience of listening to Extreme Measures the most enjoyable?

WHAT MADE LISTENING TO "EXTREME MEASURES" SO ENJOYABLE WERE THE VOICES THAT THE NARRATOR GAVE THE CHARACTERS. HE WAS ABLE TO GIVE THEM LIFE BEYOND THE WRITTEN WORD.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I LIKED MATT THE BEST BECAUSE HE SEAMED TO HAVE ALL THE QUALITIES I WOULD BE LOOKING FOR IN A DETECTIVE. NO **** FROM ANYONE!

What does Joshua Bennington bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

JOSHUA BENNINGTON GAVE THE BOOK A LIFE OF IT'S OWN AND IF I HAD READ THE BOOK AND NOT JUST LISTENED TO IT, I AM NOT SURE THE BOOK WOULD HAVE HAD AS MANY OR AS DEEP DIMENSIONS.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

WHEN MATT SHOT STUART AND GOT TOGETHER WITH ERIN.

Any additional comments?

HIGHLY RECOMMEND THE AUDIO BOOK, ONE OF THE BEST I HAVE HEARD.

The book had enough suspense to keep us glued to the speakers.

Any additional comments?

This was a well written book and the narration gave another dimension and made it even better.
