Publisher's Summary

A physicist discovers how to control reality and all hell breaks loose. When physics professor Madison Martin is smashed by a car, her quantum expertise and survival instinct enable her to rewrite reality and save her life. She's freaked about what happened but, luckily, the hot physicist from the office next door volunteers to help her decipher what the hell just happened. As their chemistry sizzles she's ready for some experiments of a more biological nature. Unbeknownst to Madison her smartest student witnesses the bizarre accident and learns how to control reality, too. He and his buddies go on a quantum crime spree starting with never-ending beer, sorority girls losing their shirts, and progressing to bank robbery and worse. Everything seems lost when the nature of reality is endangered as fundamental forces like electromagnetism and gravity start changing. Can Madison overcome the odds, thwart her evil student and save reality itself?

    Audio books get me through my drive time, laundry time, grocery shopping, everything that would otherwise be a chore. I love audiobooks!

    "Loved this story from the start"

    This story got me hooked from the first few minutes. I love science fiction that could theoretically happen, and when it's explained in a way that has a scientific basis, like it is in this book, it's especially enjoyable. If you allow yourself to be swept into the suspension of disbelief, it's a fun roller coaster ride that just doesn't quit.

    The narrator does a great job keeping the story light and fun. The main female character is quirky and bright, and Meghan Kelly's narration suits the heroine's personality perfectly. I'm not sure what another listener found so off-putting, but I couldn't disagree more. I'll just say listen to a sample and see for yourself how energetic and fun the narration is.

    The story takes place in Boulder, CO, a place I visited once, enough to remember little things that made me smile as I listened. Part mystery, part romance, part late-bloomer coming of age story, I refuse to pigeon-hole this story into a specific genre except to say that although I was provided with this copy from the author, narrator or publisher in exchange for an unbiased review, I have already purchased the sequel (Quantum Murder) and it's downloading as I write this review. I hope that the author keeps this series going become it's so much fun, and a great new twist on female quasi-detective fiction with an academic twist (since the main character is a physics professor by day but helps law enforcement catch bad guys through her knowledge of weird physics stuff in her off hours!).

    Highly recommended.

    "Review The Quantum Cop"

    What an enjoyable read! Thank you Meghan Kelly for a great performance. Every character was so easy to follow with their own "voice" different for each. Lesley Smith has woven the story of our young physics professor discovering the way to choose a preferred current reality out of the plethora of quantum choices. Her adventures include a little romance, some outsmarting the bad guys, and a generally pleasurable listening experience.

    "Fun Sci-Fi Romance"
    Any additional comments?

    Madison, a physics professor, has discovered how to alter reality. Using this knowledge to save herself from a car wreck, she unknowingly has a witness. One of her students now has this ability but it using it for his own personal gain. Teaming up with a fellow professor, a hot one of course, they must stop the student or the world will face dire consequences.

    The Quantum Cop had my interest right from the beginning and was such a great listen. I loved how actual science was incorporated into the story, making it almost sound plausible. Who knew that quantum physics could be so fun? Meghan Kelly's performance was well done and enhanced my listening experience. Loved this! I would highly recommend The Quantum Cop.

    I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator. This review is my honest opinion.

    "A decent sci-fi concept with good execution"

    I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    I have to say that this was a decent book. I wouldn’t call it the best I’ve ever experienced but it was FAR from the worst. I liked the “scientific” approach the author took. Granted, I’m an IT guy, not a physicist, so I couldn’t tell if it was made up theory or true scientific hypothesis… but this is a fiction book, so I also don’t really care either way.
    Anyway, I thought the narrator did a good job of providing different voices for each character, but her speaking tone does lend a Young Adult (YA) “feel” to the experience. Again, all in all, this was an enjoyable book. I am on the fence on whether or not I’d seek out another book in the series, but I wouldn’t turn down a free review copy. 

    Any additional comments?

    I was looking forward to this book and was not disappointed at all. It's a very entertaining, engaging and enjoyable book. The story pulled me in from the start and never let go. While the story may not be completely original concept, it was creative and fun with a lighthearted edge that had enough differences to set it apart from anything else I have listened to lately. Even though there is a scientific explanation given for the "ability" it didn't matter to me, I just let go of all reality, sat back and enjoyed the story.

    The possibilities are endless for future and different types of adventures that could happen with this "ability" to Q-lapse. It could get really interesting in the future.

    What would happen if people suddenly had the ability to change their reality in certain ways. Exactly what you would expect. Create all kinds of trouble and mayhem.

    This is the first book by Lesley L. Smith that I have read but it won't be my last. Looking forward to the next book in the series.

    Meghan Kelly did a great job with the narration. Pleasant voice, easy to listen to for long periods of time. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Really good character voices. You were always able to tell which character was speaking. She was able to make the story and characters come to life through her narration. Very enjoyable.

    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher.

    "Quantum Cop - enjoyable listen"

    This book follows Madison, a new professor in a tenured track position who offices next to a "hot" professor :). She discovers that using quantum physics, she can alter reality but quickly see the dangers when a student replicates the experiment. I'm glad to see women in science roles but I really didn't need that brought to my attention. The "action" parts of the book are exciting and it was an enjoyable listen and the humor was a great addition to the technical slant. I was provided this audiobook in exchange for an honest opinion. As a series, I think it has great potential now that the foundation is created - I did get bored with how often quantum physics or q-lapse was defined. I hope future topics include more scientific theoretical ideas gone awry.

    I am addicted to audiobooks. It makes my 1 hour (each way) commute go by without me becoming an agressive driver. lol

    "Loved the Science Lesson and the story behind it"

    I received this audiobook free for an honest review. I really enjoyed this story. I had to concentrate on what was written because it explained the theory behind Quantum Mechanics. Learned some Science I didn't know from this book. The story was great and I can see this as a series. They say this is Book 2 but I couldn't find Book 1. Evidently it wasn't needed. Madison's character and the others, her cousin and family and her fellow professor, as well as her students were well developed by the author. Each one was unique and easily recognizable. I'm not a big fan of the narrator, but was able to get through the book without much problem. Would enjoy more books like this by the author.

    "Bad narration, story came off like bad Y.A. Fanfiction"

    This was the most unnatural sounding word performance I have ever heard. Very difficult to endure.
