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.

Awesome story

I loved the idea of a quarreling ex-couple being taken and thrown into being hunted by a psychopath. Lara and Noah were the ex-couple. Lara thought Noah had cheated on her and left him. Bryce is the psychopath that stalked them and assumed they would fight during the hunt and be an easy kill. He was wrong.

Lara used to be tough. Used to stand up for herself but because of traumatic events lost herself and Noah became determined that while they are thrown into this horrific situation, he was going to get Lara back to her original self.

There were issues with this plot. A few things happened that were so far out of the realm of realistic possibilities that it left me shaking my head. I don't want to give spoilers, but you'll know.

However, the narration is what made this a more than awesome listen. For one thing, Joe Arden playing the psychopath, Noah. I love Joe's narration but I have always said he would make an awesome bad guy and I was write. He was so creepy that he sent chills down my spine with the way he would call out for Lara and Noah. Maxine Mitchell is always perfection but especially while playing Lara. She had the perfect self deprecating tone that made Lara a realistic character.
