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.

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.

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.
