Light mystery, light romance

The publisher calls License to Thrill a romantic adventure, but there is very little action. This is a typical bad-guys-after-innocent-girl story, whom the good guy works to protect. It's shallow, with little intrigue but is okay because it is a book that doesn't take itself too seriously - typical Stephanie Bond.

The publisher also refers to the main male character as a "super-cool, super-sexy Agent 007!" but this doesn't come through without reading 'in between the lines' quite a bit. The female protagonist is the one aspect that is not typical - she isn't amazingly beautiful, thin, or rich. She even wears glasses. The two make the most unlikely couple, but somehow they fit.

Overall, don't have high expectations if you spend a credit on this one.

- Gretchen "Use books for escape- typically avoid nonfiction. Enjoy action-romance, espionage/military, sci-fi. Skilled writing is most important."

Narrator spoiled this for me

I'm so glad I read this book before listening to the audio version. I love Stephanie Bond's books and loved this story when I first read it. I thought it was funny and sexy and couldn't wait to try the audiobook. But the narrator's horrid attempt at a male British accent made the hero sound more like a stuffy old English butler with absolutely no sex appeal rather than a former James Bond-type agent. I'm going to go back and read the book again just to get that image/sound out of my head! Other than ruining James Donovan for me, I thought Erin Mallon did okay and I would listen to other books read by her, as long as the hero isn't British!
