A little painful to listen to

I like this author's work. Point Blank is not atypical of her work, but the novellas are less polished than her recent work. Props to her for finding federal security officers most of us have never heard of. It was hard to finish because the narrator has a very stylized way of reading. There are brief, voiced vowels added to the front and back of many words, so that instead of "Will" it's "uhWill" or Willuh." Sometimes there is a sort of "ng" added in there, too. Since this affectation is part of the author's style of reading, it's there in the narration and both character's voices, although the pitch of the voices is quite different. Generally, speaking, the narrator does a decent job keeping all voices distinct from one another, which is a definite strength. Non-American accents are problematic though--even I can tell that the French accent is awful--and the narrator struggles to keep the accents consistent. With one exception, his female voices are pretty good. Do listen to the sample. It may be that the manner of speaking that ruined the recording for me sounds just fine, or even attractive, to you.

Point Blank

The fighting/sniping/arguing the MC’s did through the first 4 novellas really took away from my enjoyment of this series. I loved Taylor but I just wanted him to dump Will and move on.

The narrator did a fantastic job and brought the story to life.

It is a good story,...

... I just wish there was a little more action (outside the bedroom). There could also be a little more details in the end of each story, they all seemed to just stop and you think to yourself "wait what happened next".

Another Stellar Series

Josh Lanyon never fails to spin a thrilling mystery and suspenseful romance. Derrick McClain does a great job narrating. This series is right up there with the Adrien English mysteries. So good.
