Good, but long

I enjoyed Friction and mean streak better. I didn't think the chemistry was developed well. The story was good, with good twists... But it took a long time to get there. There were times I thought it went on.

The narrator has a great voice for a gruff manly man. But fir the women, wish he didn't make the female character sound winey. She needed to be a little more snotty instead of weak.

Children and fireplaces do not mix well!!

I like this book and thought it moved along at a good pace. There really weren't any lulls nor did it get draggy so I would say that makes for good listening!
There was some predictably in the story however in the end that was removed because I never saw it coming. This book has the kind of climax that makes you sit back and just shake your head because the way this was written there is no way to even make a guess.
**SPOILER **Initially I found the story to be a little transparent and some scenes kind of silly. Woman is kidnapped and threatened with death if someone doesn't pay up but is having sexual fantasies about kidnapper! Who does this? Then kidnapper is injured and hospitalized and he is fantasizing about the woman and checks to make sure everything is in working order just in case the opportunity arises (no pun intended!). Really? While handcuffed to a hospital bed and IVs and pain meds and this is what he thinking about? Sorry, I get hung up on the little things.
Anyway it all comes down to a sisters guilt. As young children her and her brother got into a fight right next to an open fireplace and his pajamas went up in flames scarring him for life. She feels guilty and he takes full advantage.
I thought this was a very good book otherwise and purchased it on sale for $4.95. If you read this review within the next few days (written 9/15/17) I would Recommend purchasing it for that price, however it is a good book and would be worth a credit.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Thank You.

Great book from a great author!!!

Sandra Brown has done it again. I couldn't put the book down. Lots of twists and turns. I loved the main characters. Suspense and romance in equal portions. Great job Sandra Brown. I give this book a 5.

Sting

Best book I've read this year. Brown's skill at weaving a tantalizing mystery spiced with unrelenting sexual tension is unmatched. Steven Lang's narration is spot on. Sigh. I'm going back to the start and listen to it again.

Don't read spoilers. What's in the blurb is all you need to know.

longtime fan questioning explicit scenes

I've been a long time fan of Sandra Brown. Enjoy the format of her stories. I enjoyed the storyline but was uncomfortable with the explicit language in the sex scene(s). am I crazy or were the sex scenes in this novel more explicitly described than in any previous book by Sandra Brown? maybe it's because I'm listening to her stories now rather than reading the novels? I'm interested to hear if others feel the same way or if others think I'm crazy.
