Great story but buy the book, narrator not great

The story is great and Susan is one of my favorite authors. I have all of her audiobooks and enjoy them. This one departed from her typical narrator. The narrator for this audiobook rendered the women’s voices deep and the men’s nasally. It was so destruction that I gave up and ordered the book instead. I miss the previous narrator used for the Cold Harbor and White Knights series.

Too much drama

A really good story by S. Sleeman, however it was tempered by the overdramatizing of when someone wasn’t totally honest because of their difficult pasts. How “Shawn” couldn’t get over that “Taylor” had lied about a small issue of whether she’d had anything to do with her brother’s suicide or not. GHASTLY! END OF RELATIONSHIP! TRUST ALL GONE! Aaaaaaaugh!!!! Of course she couldn’t admit it all immediately....Not a deal breaker or a relationship- ending lie. There were other dramas as well that were overdone. Also, I still don’t know how they ended up in love because during the entire book one was always trampling on the others feelings and there was very little positive interaction between them. Not sure how love comes out of that. However the story was still a decent listen. Also with the narrator- my only beef was that I don’t like when female narrators lower their voices to sound manly- and she took it a step further and lowered/changed her tone for the main female character too. Just my personal preference I’m sure...

Suspenseful

This book really kept me going. I did not want to stop, but instead at the end of each chapter found myself continuing on. I cannot imagine what it would be like to think I was safe and then find out otherwise or to be the ones trying to get it all under control. The agents have to work together and with one of the witnesses to try to find the hacker and get the information back under wraps. I am anticipating to see what happens next in this series.

I couldn’t force myself to listen all the way through.

The storyline and the narration graded on me. I kept hoping it would get better, But it seemed overly dramatic, contrived, and a bit depressing.

Entertaining and fluent character analysis.

These two people had to sort out where they were going in there personal encounter in spite of the natural attraction to one another. I think that kissing can often rev up the body and leave it unfulfilled with nowhere to go. These two were constantly in that mode of analysis. Such personal encounters were a minimal part of the story as a whole nevertheless, with everything else going on it was interesting to see them work out that process.
