I have reviewed the other two books in this series, and Unleashed was ruined for me by the narrator. In my other two reviews, I have gone easy on him and said that he was better suited for narrating children's books. In Unleashed, however, the narrator was so awful that it actually ruined the story for me. Danny Taggart, the oldest of the Taggart brothers (and also the physically biggest) has a voice like woman. Caroline (the lead female character and love of Danny's life), sounds like she's been smoking two packs a day for 20 years.
I don't know....maybe some listeners won't let that get in the way of their enjoyment of this otherwise pretty solid detective/romance story, but this time, I just could not get past the narration to really invest myself in the story or the characters. However, I'm glad I pushed myself to listen to the whole book because the subplot about Danny's mother is finally brought to a conclusion.
The HEA scene for Danny and Caroline - good job in having Danny finally owning his issues. He and Caroline weren't in for a cake walk, but they really did love each other enough to face the future together. However, when he went after her (she was on vacation in New Zealand) and found her on a hike made me roll my eyes.
Unleashed was still worth a credit just so I could finish the series.

I think the actual storyline was probably pretty good but the narration ruined it. The heroes voice was OK but the heroine sounded like an old man with laryngitis. He actually pitched his voice lower for the heroin and higher for the hero. It was difficult to finish but I did. I will probably return this book.
