Publisher's Summary

Jenny's single-parent life revolves around her kids and her job, which means that hours of Animal Planet and strings of computer code are about all she has time for. Not that Jenny's looking for adventure or romance - she's the type of woman who believes in playing it safe.
When Jenny is called upon to do some consulting for the Bourbon Street Boys - a New Orleans private security firm - she knows she should stay away. They conduct surveillance on known criminals and put themselves in harm's way pretty much every day, so No is the obvious answer...Problem is, there's a guy on the team with a body to die for and a dimple that just won't quit luring Jenny in, tempting her to throw all caution to the wind.
Will Jenny take the risk or will she do what she's always done - play it safe and wait for the right time?

A mix of good & bad

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Maybe. I really liked the story, but the narration was a bit "off," for me. I balanced on loving and hating the story every few minutes because the narration didn't quite fit right for me. If that makes sense.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Dev; I am pretty sure he has Alopecia. I may have missed where it says why he is bald and has no eyebrows, but I suspect that is why he is so bald. I have Alopecia and I thought it was pretty cool to see a character with it portrayed as strong and healthy since in real life, people often think folks with Alopecia are cancer patients (I have some awkward stories :p ).


What aspect of Elizabeth Godley’s performance would you have changed?

Not horrible, but not my favorite. The pacing of that narration really bugged me. Fantastic with voice work (tones, character variations, etc). I felt like there were too many pauses and gaps in between sentences, and even when the characters were flustered, the words were drawn out and sentences annoyingly slow throughout most of the book. There were spots where it got better, but for the most part, the narration pacing was very slow. If the pace could be picked up a bit, it would be one of my favorites because of the accents, tones, variations are done very well; they aren't over the top, and I can imagine real people attached to them.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Wong place, Right Time? :p


Any additional comments?

I can't wait to dive into the next installment! :)

First time review

I'm sorry to say I couldn't listen to the book for more than three chapters. The performance was so poor. The narrator was all over the place with her accents. The story is set in the south, but the main character sometimes had a New England accent. Also her voice made the "alpha male " lead sound like a wuss. The narrator should only record children books. Don't listen, read the book. Because the story is enjoyable.
