    Having read the previous book in the series regarding Lucy Kincaid's kidnapping, I was really excited to read about her all grown up. This is by far my favorite Allison Brennan book...it reminded me a lot of Karen Rose.

    Lucy is such a strong character. She's been through literal torture and though she has her moments of weakness, she has come through it all with determination. I loved her decision to try and help others by taking scum off the streets. Sean was a super hot, perfectly protective, romantic suspense hero. I loved him to pieces...he seemed to anticipate Lucy's needs before she did.

    I'm looking forward to the next book in their series!

    4.25 stars for story; 5 for narration.

    I really enjoyed this. I love a good, intense thriller/romance, and Allison Brennan is a talented writer. Lucy suffered horrible torture and abuse at the hands of a sadistic sociopath. We meet Lucy prior to this book, and we see the story of her kidnapping, torture and eventual rescue. It's been a while since I read that story so I don't remember specifics about the who, where and how. But this book here does give some backstory which I appreciated.

    As for the romance between Sean and Lucy, yes it is beautiful and loving and tender. It's also very insta-love, which the first time I read this I didn't really pay attention to. Now I'm older and wiser in reading, so I picked up on that right away. I find it unrealistic they would fall in love (Sean does, and he is convinced Lucy is too but not ready to admit it) so quickly,

    in light of ALL the events that are going on in this story. Did it detract from my enjoyment of this story? Nope, not one bit. Sean has told Lucy he is prepared to take things between them as slow as necessary so Lucy comes around. :)

    The police work and Sean's most likely illegal activities to search for answers was exciting to read and it certainly moved the story along at a quick pace. I wasn't bored and since I know what is coming in future stories, I am even more excited to continue this series again. Yes, the police work and action is over the top at times, and does fall in to the incredulous, but again, this didn't detract from my enjoyment of the story.

    This can be read as a standalone; you don't need to read the books before, and you don't need to read the rest of Lucy's series. This has a very exacting ending, bad guys caught, no question of cliffhanger. If you do choose to continue with Lucy's series, you can't jump around and skip books. They will need to be read in order, and if memory serves, future books do end on cliffhangers.

    I highly recommend this story, the audio, and the series.

    About nine months ago I have read the tenth book in this series

    and I wasn't genuinely impressed. Now, I gave a chance to the first book in this series and I don't like it either.

    One of the things I didn't like about the previous book I read is the slow pace of the story. Here I also have this problem. This is about 400 pages of endless waiting for the characters to come up with the right answers. The answers you already know.

    You know that and many other things, but you have to wait for the FBI to see the truth. Extremely frustrating! There are lot of twists in the plot that are totally predictable and unsurprising. If you ever read any suspense book, you already know this story. And, just in case, the author gives you clues.

    And what is with all this people?! Kincaids are probably the most tortured family in the history of crime stories! Do Kate and Dillon have their own book? There is no one member of this family without some heartbreaking story!

    The other thing I didn't like about

    is the fact that I felt no attachment to Lucy. This is still the case, I don't care about her enough. The good thing is that I really like Sean who I totally overlooked in the tenth book. He is a nice hero after all.

    I don't think this is my last book in this series, but I'm not sure I will read another book soon.

    Review: I received a review copy of this novel from TLC Book Tours. Many thanks to Lisa for providing me with a copy. I was really excited to receive this book, as I have been wanting to read something by Brennan for quite awhile. I had a really mixed reaction to this novel.Let's start with what I liked.

    I enjoyed Brennan's writing style. It was really easy to get into the story because her writing style was very inviting. Brennan is very skilled at creating detailed settings that sprang to life in my mind.

    So, what didn't I like? As I said, I've never read anything by Brennan before, and I know the description states that Love Me To Death is the first book in the Lucy Kincaid series, but I got the distinct feeling that I had dropped into the middle of a series, or at least that these characters may have been in other books that I haven't read. I don't know that that is the case, but it definitely had that feel to it and here's why.

    There was an abundance of back story regarding Lucy's kidnapping and rape. At the same time, none of her ordeal got any page time in this book, so I felt like I missed something or that this back story may have been a part of a different novel. This was bothersome to me.

    Additionally bothersome was the shear volume of characters. There was Lucy, her 3 or 4 bothers, her sister-in-law, an ex-lover, a private investigator team which was made up of several siblings, Lucy's boss, many FBI agents, and about 10 bad guys and victims. Because of the volume of characters, I had trouble keeping who was whom straight and this prevented me from totally engaging with the story.

    The plot itself was interesting, but with Lucy's back story and the present plot, I felt a little lost. I felt lost because I felt like I didn't have all the details on Lucy and the current plot seemed very tied to that back story.

    Overall, this book ended up just being OK for me. I really did enjoy Brennan's writing and will definitely pick up something else by her. If you are a fan of Brennan's then you will most definitely enjoy this book. If you are new to Brennan, like I was, I wouldn't recommend this book as a starting place.

    I will start by saying this is not my kind of book. It took me several days to get through this. I finished it this morning and I'm already wondering, "What was this about again?" I did the audio on this and I can't blame the reader, because it was read well. I will even say the story was good. It had good suspense, too. So, I knew I would finish it...eventually.

I did the audio on this and I can't blame the reader, because it was read well. I will even say the story was good. It had good suspense, too. So, I knew I would finish it...eventually.

    First off, there seemed to be so many people in it. So I found myself hitting the rewind button to re-listen so I could learn who all these people were. A fair amount of them had such minor roles, they could have been eliminated and the story would not have suffered.

    There also seemed to be a lot of back story introduced every time something needed more explanation. I had to rewind a lot because of that as well. For me, it felt super manipulated, because there was an explanation for everything.

    The female mc did not have a consistent presence. She wobbled a lot between what the author was telling us who she was (ie: a tough FBI wannabe), to being a weak victim of a past crime. Survivors of traumatic experiences usually don't whip out a fine tooth comb to go over it every second of every day.

    The romance was fantasy fiction. It caused excessive eye rolling and there was a simpering part that almost activated my gag reflex. I am not a fan of the mix of genre's here.

    Lastly, the men seemed a little whiny. But maybe it was how the reader read the lines. I don't know. I just know it didn't feel right.
