Publisher's Summary

A fate worse than death.
It's all part of his sick game. A game he's been planning for an entire decade. Now everything is perfect: one woman and one man have been selected. They used to be a couple - and they can no longer stand one another. They are the perfect victims. He doesn't intend for the game to be easy. He wants to push them to the brink of insanity, to make his hunt real....
A desire worth fighting for....
The couple has been captured and dumped into a massive wooded area. There's only one rule in this fatal game: They will have 72 hours to find a way out before the sadistic serial killer begins his hunt. But what he never could have expected was the explosive passion that ignites between the two ex-lovers - one that makes them strong. Fierce. And determined to do whatever it takes to escape - and to survive. Contains mature themes.

Thrill ride

This is such and intriguing story. It reminded me a lot of the old classic "The Most Dangerous Game". I would consider this 2/3rds survival/ thriller story and 1/3rd second chance romance.

Lara and Noah are two exes who constantly Bicker. Lara once a mouth and confident woman lost her spirit after her fiery attitude caused her to lose someone she loved. Noah is a firefighter. Because of her loss, she started to feel less than, which resulted in the end of their relationship. They spend the most of the first part of the story bickering. This attracts the attention of our killer who drugs and captures them. He then takes them to a Florida forest and hunts them like animals.

I liked the dual perspectives. I also like that it is the killer and the and Lara that speaks. We don't hear from Noah until the end. It was a good glipse into the killer's though process. I only wish there had been more about the killer's back story and about them being on the news. That was kind of unexplained.

Great narrators, especially Joe Arden. Whenever he read the killer's part. It sent chills up my spine. Now That's acting.

BiPolar experience

Would you try another book from Bella Jewel and/or Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell ?

Depends on the story.


Would you ever listen to anything by Bella Jewel again?

Not sure based on this.


What about Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell ’s performance did you like?

The female voice (Laura) was fine. But when she tried to be Noah it was horrific. Struggling and straining her vocal chords made him seem weak and not at all as described in the book. Why not let the male voice be noah and a third male be Bryce? Or just do a better job of making the voices sound different. This was a pain to listen to.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from 72 Hours?

All of the sex scenes. They were ridiculously placed an unnecessary to the plot. Everything after the rescue.


Any additional comments?

Worst book I've ever listened too. So hard to get through. Asking for a refund. I can't believe my tastes are so far askew from all the reviewers.
