Summary

When Krista catches her boss doing the unthinkable, the only thing she can do is run - straight into the arms of the eye candy she's been trying not to flirt with on her lunch break. But whose side is he on?

Ryan's security firm is having a hard time getting off the ground, and this may be just the job to help the company out. But pseudo-bounty hunter isn't really what Pierce Securities is trying to get a name for. When he finds out their target is the classy lady from the park, all of Ryan's senses go on high alert. What do these men want with her?

Krista is forced into Ryan's sanctuary in the woods, where she realizes just how wild he is, but she doesn't want to tame him. He may feel his methods of protection endangered her, but without Krista in his life, Ryan is crazed.

This is book number one in Pierce Securities, a romantic suspense series by Anne Conley, author of Stories of Serendipity and The Four Winds.

🎧Reviewed for Audiobook Obsession 🎧

Intrigue, suspense, action, romance, but could have a trigger for some, beware. Characters are well developed and I’m sure we will here more from them in the continuing series Pierce Securities.
Sarah Grant was the narrator for Craze.

Suspenseful romance

This story had me hooked since the first chapter. The writing is fantastic and storyline kept me on the edge of my seat. What I had a tough time with at times was the narration. If the story was not so good I may have stopped listening. Definitely one story I would recommended and I cannot wait to hear from from this series.

Excellent storyline

This book holds nothing back. It has a sensitive storyline that not many authors attempt to write about. Well done Anne, you have written this story with tact and emotion. Good performance from Sarah.

Ryan and Krista

This book was pretty good. Following along on Ryan and Krista’s adventures, fraught with peril, was pretty engaging. I enjoyed the narrator and how well she brought the characters to life.

Craze is a good way to go!

Krista is on the run after witnessing one of the worst crimes. Her boss is a monumental creep with power and he won’t let her het away with what she saw. Ryan was hired to get her but instead he gives her protection. The story is full of action, suspense and romance. The narrator has a great voice but some characters were not represented that great. Overall, I had fun with the listen.

Loved The Ending!

"Craze: Pierce Securities" was a story about a young man who worked for a security services, in charge of protecting a young woman whom he happened to at a park regularly during lunchtime.

The security services were originally hired by her boss to find her but after a few chain of events something didn't seem right with the boss, so until they checked out the boss, they hid her.

I was a little uncomfortable with the main subject matter of the storyline and the continued obsession from the boss in regards to it.
The relationship between the two main character's; Ryan and Krista, I liked how it unfolded throughout the book. With everything going on it had it's fair share of ups and downs, but the most important thing is how it ends.

There were so many background characters in this story; including the two main characters, that I thought the narrator Sarah Grant did a great job all around!

The author Anne Conley wrote a wonderful love story, I just personally wasn't comfortable with the main subject matter...

Romance with a kick

This book gets going right from the start! You don't have to wait long for things to pick up and then they just keep you on the edge of your seat through the whole book. There is plenty of action, mystery and steamy tension. I'll be picking up more of this series for sure!

Sarah Grant does a brilliant job narrating this book. It's not easy doing both male and female voices while giving them each their own personality but Sarah pulls it off with flair. Great job Sarah!

Not a bad read.

My biggest dislike is the narrator, Sarah had a nice speaking voice but not a good one to switch from one character to another.

The story is quite good, nicely written but the narration distracted me from it.

Voice

Sarah Grant has a voice that needs to be heard often. More authors need her.
The book itself was great suspense, romance in an under current way. Just enough mystery to keep things interesting. I'm hoping the next book is as good.

Charming Narrator

What would have made Craze better?

The story lacked tension. Every time the bad guy got close, it just didn't go anywhere and fizzled out. Until the bad guy kidnapped the heroine and then it got really dark. The writing was occasionally clumsy.

Which character – as performed by Sarah Grant – was your favorite?

I liked almost all of the characters. The hero didn't quite do it for me, but I thought the rendition of the heroine was good.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The narrator. More charming than the story deserved.

Narrator -- ugh

I couldn't finish it. I just could not handle the mispronunciation of basic words. And then the monotone....

The Story was Great, Narrationr - Not So Much

Title: Craze
Author: Anne Conley
FormaL Audio
Narrator: Sarah Grant
Genre: Romantic Suspense, bodyguard
Standalone: Yes
Part of a Series: Yes Book 1 of the Pierce Securities series
POV: Krista and Ryan
Steam Level: Slow burn to steamy
4/5

I love romantic suspense stories and Craze was no exception. However, the narrator - especially with the men's voices detracted from the story. The subject, aka "the unthinkable," may be a trigger for some but, to me, it just enhanced the villainy of the villains. The almost subtle message about power and money resonated with me. Overall I enjoyed this book but I think I may have liked it more if I have read it rather than listened to it.

I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Obsession. This is my honest and voluntary review.

good story but the narration was tough for me

The story concept was good, enough so that I'm looking forward to book 2. However 25% into this, I looked ahead to be sure the same narrator wasn't performing book 2 or honestly, I would have just stopped. Between the southern drawls & the whispery cheesy male voices, I kept getting frustrated & pulled out of the story. #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

Ok Read

I enjoyed many aspects of this book, I liked the sassy, classy, tough heroin, and the alpha, hot, tough Hero. The writing was really good and the flow was perfect. There were some moments in the book that had me scratching my head, but overall it was pretty good. the narration was really good! #audiobookobsessionreview

Child molester

Ok I have literally bought hundreds of books on audible. I’m not a prude and quite a few of those books were pretty spicy. But, they could have included a warning that this subject was in the book.

Good story

Craze is a good story. I enjoyed the plot very much. I had some trouble listening to the narration because of mispronunciations. That can get frustrating. If you can get past that, the story is awesome.
I was given a copy for a fair and unbiased review.

Action and Romance

Craze is lots of action and suspense. Krista walks in on her boss and witnesses something unspeakable. She tries to do the right thing but soon gets caught up in a dark and dangerous situation.

When Ryan’s security firm gets involved, Ryan tries to keep their relationship on a business level but the attraction is too strong.

“...you’re a man. And we have our weaknesses. One of those weaknesses is a beautiful woman.”
“She’s more than that.”

I listened to most of Craze on audiobook and enjoyed the narration.
