Audiobook: Narrator – Madeline Maby

This performance was a little too harsh and forceful for me. I understand that Lilah is a tough as nails kind of heroine, but the constant forcefulness of the narration became tiring pretty quickly. But preferences in narration is as diverse as preferences in books, so try the sample instead of taking my word on it.

I fell more in love with Kane as he is intent on protecting Lilah even if she is determined she will protect him. Their chemistry is all kinds of delicious as it extends into a driving need to be there for each other. Despite the narration, this is a fast and furious conclusion to Love Me Dead, Lilah Love book 3 and the mystery of the Umbrella Man. While I had guessed some of the mystery, there were still a few surprises as this story has twists and turns that will have you wildly guessing what will happen next.

Cant wait for more!
