Description

She’s running from the law, and the law wants her bad.

The opportunity was just too damn delicious for Ginger Peet to pass up. The purse full of money she finds - $50,000 to be exact - could give her and her teen sister the new start they need. So she grabs the cash, her gothy sibling, and their life-sized statue of Dolly Parton, and blows outta Nashville in a cloud of dust. Chicago, here we come...

Turns out, Chicago has some pretty hot cops. Hot, intense, naughty-lookin’ cops like Derek Tyler, who looks like he could eat a girl up and leave her begging for more. And more. Tempting as he is, getting involved with the sexy homicide lieutenant next door poses a teensy problem for a gal who’s on the lam. But one thing is certain - Derek’s onto her, and he wants more than just a taste.

And as far as he’s concerned, possession is nine-tenths of the law.

Good book, poor audio

Whispersync price tempted me to try a narrator I'd never heard. Wish I hadn't.

I enjoyed reading the book even though hot cop hero Derek may be a bit too much the caveman in his romancing technique. The author writes excellent banter and there were more than a few laugh-out-loud moments in the verbal battles between Ginger and Derek. Pretty good romantic suspense from a new (newish?) author I'll definitely read again.

I rated the performance one star. The narrator sounds muddy, mushy-mouthed, unprepared, and inexperienced. I suppose it's possible that this is another narrator using an alias for the naughty stuff, but she sounds very amateurish to my ear. Ginger and her sister Willa have just arrived in Chicago from Nashville. They should have an accent. And they do in a few passages, but mostly not. Actually all characters sound exactly the same regardless of gender, age, agency, or disappearing accent/no accent. Derek in the book is desirable, hot and dominant. Derek in the audio is a cypher. Overall, a disservice to a book I enjoyed.

No storyline and not any romance

I can tell most folks don’t agree with me on this book but what the heck here goes my review. This book is not romantic – raunchy maybe – but definitely not romantic. I was not thrilled with the language in this book. There is a lot cussing and not just when Derek is using dirty talk to get Ginger in bed.

I feel mislead by the title in I was expecting a CR that resulted in of course the need for the guy to save the day. That is not what I got. Most of what Derek does that I think the author finds romantic is being obsessive with some borderline stalking. His jealously is so annoying that I just didn’t like him.

Ginger is portrayed as this strong independent female, your basic good girl from the wrong side of the tracks who will do anything to keep her sister safe. That is not what you get. She doesn’t take crap off anyone which I like unless its Derek and he basically walks over her because she finds him too sexy to resist.

So for me it was just an average book that was saved by the relationship between Ginger and Willa.

The narrator, Alice Chapman did a good job with the voices and with the Tennessee accents but a lot of the characters from Chicago still had a little bit of a southern twang to them.

Liked this.

I liked this. Obviously new writer and narrator. The story was good, with time this will be a great writer. Narrator needs to use a little more inflection. Worth a listen.

5 Audible Escapes Stars

Great narration! I love it when the readers bring a performance to the reading. It makes it so much better. However, that accent sounded more Kentucky than Tennessee. Then again, this Georgia girl don't know much about accents on the first p!ace. Anyways,, I loved the storyline and plan on continuing kids series.
NOTE: Listened free with Audible Escapes on speed 2.5 on my fire.

loved the book one my favorites

Spoiler alert: I first played this book on chapters interactive game which put a face to all the characters fell in love with the story and bought the audible book. Derek falling for Ginger at first sight I really loved it and when police officer Derek sent his men to the bar where Ginger worked as a bartender to keep an eye on her was really funny cause they were ordered not to let her out of their sight and loved the way Derek became protective over Ginger and how he became a father figure to Willa it was a great book loved it very much everyone should read this book and play it on chapters interactive game for a great reading experience

Wanted more

This book was just ok to me. The storyline was good, but there was too little assertiveness from both characters. I kept waiting for one of them to really go for what they wanted, but that didn't really happen. The narration was well done, though.

Only So so!

There are several things that make this novel miss the mark....

1) It’s way too short to be even considered a fulfilling storyline. It’s also too short to develop the characters and the relationship between the Hero and Heroine.
2) The narration is only mediocre. The voices aren’t consistent and no emotion comes through the narrator’s dialogue. Unfortunately, narration makes or breaks an audiobook.
3) The way the Relationship changes from unemotional to love is ridiculous. There isn’t anything in the plot that makes this seem remotely believable.
4) This book has a lot of eye rolling, cheesy lines. They are so cheesy that the writing puts me in mind of an author’s rough draft of a first written novel.

I never like to make negative comments without something positive, also. The Hero was a, take no shit”, cop that has mastered,hot as he**, dirty talk. He is a dominant lover that isn’t afraid to tan the hide of his woman for not wearing panties under a short cocktail dress.
The Hero and his persona, made it possible for me to finish this book. Luckily, this book is included in the Escape Package, so I didn’t spend one of my precious monthly credits, on it.

Promising Writer - way too much angst!

The storyline was interesting and the push/pull relationship was entertaining to hear. What killed the story for me between 25% - 85% was 3 sentences of angst per 1 sentence of information. 8 ended up skipping 60 second increments every 30-45 seconds for awhile. I will read the next book in the series and hope that it contains at least 50% less angst!

Oh Dolly!

This story had me right from the beginning. The sassy heroine and the Alpha hero were so hot together. The chemistry was off the charts, and having Dolly as an observer was charming.
