Publisher's Summary

In the second book of the Bluegrass Series, Danielle De Luca, an ex-beauty queen who is not at all what she seems, leaves the streets of New York after tracking the criminals out to destroy her. She travels to Keeneston, Kentucky to make her final stand by the side of her best friend, McKenna Mason. While in Keeneston, Danielle meets the quiet and mysterious horse farm owner Mohtadi Ali Rahman, a modern day Prince. Can Mo protect Dani from the group of powerful men in New York? Or will Dani save the Prince from his rigid, loveless destiny?

Risky Shot

We meet Danielle and Mo in book 1, Danielle is Kenna’s best friend and the other woman to be witness to a crime. So when they think its save for Danielle to come to Kenna she does.

She then meets Mo’s who is a modern day Prince. And they hit it off; I loved this so very much. I loved Mo in the first book and knew, knew he needed a HEA.

But so does Danielle she is so headstrong and strong of heart she needs that someone to let her be her.

I loved this town, this series, and all its characters.

I forgot it ends in a cliff-hanger so without farther a due I am off to start it!

Eric G. Doves narration... Again is fanfreakingtastic!! I can’t even he has all these voices he makes everyone have their own. I love that he can do the old ladies!! Ha

WHAT A FUNNY, QUIRKY & DRAMA FILLED LISTEN

The clues are slowly being pieced together after Dani arrives in Keeneston she's tired and exhausted but when her eyes meet Mo's there's an instant connection but with people still after her and his Father's demands things don't go smoothly for the lovers.

I think this was a more interesting listen as the story unfolded, yes there was instant love with no real build up but the humor, loveable characters and shocking cliffhanger ending more than made up for it. And each scene and it's characters are richly described in such great detail that you can't help but be mentally transported there.

Another bargain plucked from Audible's frequent sales because of great reviews and, of course, Eric Dove's narration as you can always count on him to give you 100%.

A little flat

I love the picture chosen for this book but similar to book one in the series, this one had zero passion and the love story developed literally over two dates. Don’t see that happening in real life so it was hard for me to totally get into a story where the main characters were SOOOO in love so quickly. Weak action sprinkled here and there and good narration. Not sure if I can recommend it as great work of action or romance, but it was entertaining enough.

The Story Continues

Usually I wouldn't buy another book by any author that leaves me hanging. However I really fell in love with these characters. So much so that I went out and bought the paperbacks. But must say I really, really, like the audio's. Specially the narrator Eric G. Dove who does a fantastic job narrating all of them. Not only do they keep one on the edge of their seat, they are so funny I laugh out loud as I picture this little town and all the town's people. Be sure to buy all of this series as it is more than worth it.

So Close!

This is not great writing - in fact, it's rather shallow and immature. Nevertheless, in spite of myself, I've somehow become involved with the series. The idea - the premise of the story is great - it's just that the plot and especially the relationships between the characters are not very well developed. Things happens very quickly with little or no explanation and I frequently have a "how did this happen?" reaction. The narrator seems to get good reviews, but I think he sounds somewhat forced and enforces the lack of depth. All of this being said - I have to admit to being entertained and I will probably listen to more of the series. Maybe a good female reader would help out a bit.

Cliffhanger

Thank heaven these are in the audible escape package. These are simple, enjoyable escape reading books. They aren’t complicated, the romance feels a bit forced sometimes (not sure if it’s the narrators lack of sappyness I’m emotional parts) and quick but I’m enjoying them for what they are. The town and friends make me want to live In a small town.

What a waste of time

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Brooks novels are great just the presenter missed the mark

Would you ever listen to anything by Kathleen Brooks again?

Not likely - I have enjoyed reading her books so may stick with that format. I enjoy listening to books and read lots as well however this one was the first audio book that I found painfully to continue.

How could the performance have been better?

May be a woman's voice

What character would you cut from Risky Shot?

Dannie and Mo - sad considering they are some of the main characters.

Kathleen Brooks = 5 Stars all day

Love this series and all the ones that followed after the first 3 books. It's a town you want to move to and wrap yourself up in the tight knit community of love and security. Loving the books on Audio this time around.

Just enough detail

Filled with suspense, violence, and making love, but just enough details to allow ones imagination fill in the blanks

Cliffhanger alert

I hate cliffhangers! I like the stories in the first 2 books of this series. They are intertwined well but I’m very glad I’m reading them after the next books were written so I don’t have to wait for the next book.
