Publisher's Summary

FBI agent Elizabeth LeBlanc is still caught in the aftermath of her last big case when she runs into the one man from her past who is sure to rock her equilibrium even more.

Navy SEAL Derek Vaughn is back home from a harrowing rescue mission in which he found evidence of a secret terror cell on U.S. soil. Elizabeth knows he'll do anything to unravel the plot - including seducing her for information. And despite the risks involved, she's tempted to let him.

Together with the forensics experts at the Delphi Center, Derek and Elizabeth are closing in on the truth. But it may not be fast enough to avert a devastating attack.

Horrible, really bad, narration!!! Argh!

I'm 1/2 way thru what is a great storyline...but I honestly don't know if I can finish it because the narration is so bad! Who really talks like that - she chews the words! For a lack of a better description. It is extremely distracting - it constantly pulls me out of the story. Before you buy this book - be sure to listen to the sample listen.

Story is good. Narration is annoying.

The story line here is good. A nice Whodunit mixed with the romance. But the narrator is so focused on pronouncing every letter of every word, that she actually seems to add syllables to words when she tries to put the hard "D" or "T" sound on some words. It's hard to explain, but it's annoying. It almost sounds like she's adding an "a" sound to some words. "She told-a him that ... " And when she does it, there's a small pause after that word. Her narration just doesn't flow naturally. It's almost as if she's working hard at covering an accent of some kind. It's bad enough that I won't finish listening to the book.

Thrilling!

In book 8 we have an FBI agent Elizabeth LeBlanc and navy seal Derek Vaughn working together to figure out the next terrorist plot against US soil.

Beyond Limits is jammed packed with fast action as these two search out leads to not only find out who are the players behind a suspected threat, but what that actual threat is.

I'm finding this series to be a good thrill read. It is heavier on the suspense than the romance and I usually prefer more romance. That speaks to how good the suspense has been in this series.

This series have some recurring side characters and some of them become main characters. Despite that, I believe you can read each book as a standalone if you aren't interested in reading in order.

Audiobook borrowed on the Audible Romance Package. The narrator is very good. I don't particularly like her male voice but that's a personal preference and I got used to it very quickly.

Mixed reaction

The story of hunting the terrorists was exciting and well done. The h's angst over the relationship with the H was over done. It was understandable and realistic but it stalled the story to have it hashed over so much. The narration was very inconsistent. Her voice for Derek was terrific but the general narration was very strained, over enunciated and she tripped over words.
I have read or listened to every book by Laura Griffin and she will continue to be an automatic buy despite the hiccups in this book.
