I liked the plot and this book really could have been exciting. 1. I did not like all of the inner monologue. At least 40 percent of the book was the main characters talking to themselves and not to each other. It seemed as if they went over and over the same thing, which made the book boring to me. 2. I can't believe that there were whole areas where the author went on and on about the food, in detail, long boring details about how good the juice was and how wonderful the tastes were. Really?! 3. The book goes on and on about how overwhelmed she is by the emotions around her and her gift/curse.
Okay so the heroine has a gift that allows her to touch people and know what they are feeling. So she has a patient, Patient # 9, that has been betrayed and maybe chemically suppressed and he has become her test subject for dementia. And through touching him, she realizes that he should not be a patient and he has been kidnapped and betrayed and in her lab against his will. So he somehow conveys that she needs to find his team. So she goes on a trip to find the team. All of this is good except that it took too freakin LONG to get to the point. All of this was convey in chapter 1 - 10 just to get to this point. The book is ONLY 15 chapters! You could have really cut out 5 chapters of inner dialogue and still have gotten to this point! So again, I liked the plot and if I had been reading this, I would have skipped all that junk, but when you are listening, if you fast forward, you may really miss something. It makes me really impatient and irritated because I really want to FF past all of the flowery inner dialogue. So it takes until chapter 10 before she finally explains to the hero how she was able to find him and what her gift was.
The only suspense I felt was, when she would get to the freakin point. Because it took so long for her to explain about her gift to the hero, that I didn't even care to hear about it by the time she got there. So when I downloaded this I downloaded book 1 and 2, at this point, I have returned book 2 and I am going to make myself finish this freakin book! Hopefully, now that she has gotten to the point maybe the book will pick up.
So no so far I don't like it. It was not worth my credit. And I totally see that I am in the minority, lol, and that is okay with me. Again, remember this is just my opinion.

Lisa Marie Rice was one of the first authors I ever paid for when I got my first Kindle and I've never been disappointed with any of her offerings. While her writing is fairly formulaic (strong alpha male, often in a team of three with one being scared in some fashion, meeting up with a seemingly fragile but strong willed woman), her books are always enjoyable. This story follows that premise and is set in a future world in which drugs that can wipe a persons memories back a few days are available, and the cure for cancer has been found but hidden away by an unethical 'baddie'. Enter Catherine, a brilliant doctor, who is compelled by her gift to seek out 'Mac', a disgraced soldier in hiding, and share a message with him warning of impending danger.
As I mentioned, I'm a little biased when it comes to Ms Rice (I think her writing is wonderful and her biography at Amazon makes me giggle every time I read it), but I'm very happy to have spent a credit on this story. I hadn't heard Seraphine Valentine's narration before, but enjoyed it (despite sometimes cringing at her 'surfer dude' voice). There is another Ghost Ops Novel available, which I'll be listening to next and I can only hope that Audible will soon release other books written by Lisa Marie Rice.

I listened to this a couple of weeks ago and had to remind myself of the plot of the characters and this is not a good sign, but it is written well a little too mushy and pensive for my taste as I personally like a little more edge to my romance/erotica books but it does have a decent storyline - though the characters I found nothing new, you know the type of thing, tortured hero brilliant bright doctor with an inner power she tries and fails to ignore.
There's no thinking here just an indulgent easy romantic read and sometimes that is just what you need..
