Publisher's Summary

The job was supposed to be dead easy: hand-deliver some legal papers to billionaire philanthropist Harry Van Dorn's extravagant yacht, get his signature and be done. But Manhattan lawyer Genevieve Spenser soon realizes she's in the wrong place at the wrong time, and that the publicly benevolent playboy has a sick, vicious side.As he tries to make her his plaything for the evening, eager to use and abuse her until he discards her with the rest of his victims, Genevieve must keep her wits if she intends to survive the night.But there's someone else on the ship who knows the true depths of Van Dorn's evil. Peter Jensen is far more than the unassuming personal assistant he pretends to be - he's a secret operative who will stop at nothing to ensure Harry's deadly Rule of Seven terror campaign dies with him. But Genevieve's presence has thrown a wrench into his plans, and now he must decide whether to risk his mission to keep her alive, or allow her to become collateral damage.

What the Critics Say

"A master at creating chilling atmosphere with a modern touch." (Library Journal)
"Stuart courts controversy with Jensen's lack of emotion and total body control, allowing him to use sex as a tool for disarming both women and men; her hero's sexual flexibility is bound to turn off some readers, just as it's bound to entice others. Those who take the plunge shouldn't be disappointed: Stuart knows how to take chances, and this edgy thriller shows how well they can pay off." (Publishers Weekly)

No thrills

The first three chapters are tantalizing followed by a formulaic cat and mouse game between the two "love interests"that drags through the remaining chapters. This book left me cold.

Glad it was free...

What disappointed you about Cold as Ice?

the book was just dry, boring, and repetitive. The killer keeps threatening to kill her but you soon learn he's all talk, and after a while it becomes really boring to hear him say the same thing. Also, how a romance bloomed out of this story makes no sense to me. I like to listen to audio books to pass the time on the train to and from work, but this book doesn't help me pass the time, it just makes me wish it was over.


What do you think your next listen will be?

Not sure


What do you think the narrator could have done better?

take more time to develop the romance. One minute there was nothing, and the next they were sleeping together while still talking about escaping each other and murder. it made no sense to me.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

disappointment


Any additional comments?

the accents were bothersome too.
