Hooked from the start

What a brilliant storyline that am sure will resonant with so many people out there. Absolutely amazing range of voices and accents by the narrator. A heartwrenching storyline with loadsbof humour in it. Most memorable phase "you will probably say Satan was a misunderstood child" that had me in giggles. Can't wait to listen to the rest of the Mcabe brothers.

Don't Stop Me: Vic

I enjoyed this book very much and was glad that Vic was able to find love. I listened to the second book first but that was fine. Jaclynn Michelle Elfring did a very good job with the narration. I received this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Her Anger Was Over the Top

This book bothered me. I am not saying that it wasn't interesting or that it did not hold my attention. It actually was interesting and did hold my attention. It addressed some situations that occur, even in our current environment. The thing that really continued to hang over my head was how angry Fiona/Badra was at Vic. It made no sense to me. She knew what he was while she was with him. I understood that the circumstances caused her life to change forever, but Vic did not hold the responsibility for that, the authorities did. Her anger was obvious and overwhelming to the point it kept throwing me off. I figured that I had missed some major detail that would explain why she was so angry. As the story played out, I was even more confused about her anger. Vic was not responsible for the way other people treated her. I will admit that I completely understood her fear, and what it's like to carry that with you on a daily basis. I felt that what she did about John was more for herself than to protect him. To hold onto that amount of anger for 14 years must have been exhausting. This story tied up all of the loss ends very quickly. I won't say neatly, because the reporter fell off the face of the earth. There were people introduced out of the blue. There were questions that went unanswered for years, and no one ever thought to ask them. There was the information Vic found out, presented to Fiona, and she was cool. No questions. Let's not forget Fiona's fairly easy acceptance of Vic back in her life. I felt like she made some feeble protests AFTER she discovered part of Vic's life. Before that, she was ready to attack at every turn. Then, there was the HEA. Fast and easy acceptance. The book was ok, but I still feel like I was missing something, and there were still unanswered questions. The narration was ok. I think I would have enjoyed it more if it had been dual.

I loved this story

I loved this story. The injustice of everyday life brought to just common people like you. And how institutions we trust in, can jump into conclusions and overreact changing a nobody's life forever without anyone knowing or caring about. All in the name of the greater welfare cause. It's thought-provoking. The only thing is... why does it end up so abruptly? The last 4 chapters which concludes the story might have needed at least twice the time to develop. I just wasn't ready to leave Vic and Fiona yet.

Amazing story

Lorhainne does it again. Wonderful story with strong characters. I love Vic and his commitment to help those he loves. In the time after 9-11 many untold prejudices and harm came to innocent people and this story handles is type of situation in a thoughtful and meaningful way.

A good beginning to the series

The beginning of this series starts with a story that grabs your attention from the start. Vic McCabe , now a successful owner of a contracting company is approached by a reporter that is digging into his past. A past from a youth that was less than stellar but also not what it seemed. His first thoughts is that he needs to find and protect the girlfriend who 15 years ago had suffered the most and who disappeared . Little does he know that she has created a new identity and has kept many secrets. It’s a story about redemption, forgiveness and new beginnings. The plot in engaging , and the characters complex . A series that promises to be a winner. Kudos to the narrator, Jaclynn Michelle Elfring who does an extraordinary job with voices.

Vic is an alpha male all the way–and swoon worthy

Ever since Lorhainne Eckhart introduced us to Vic McCabe in Leave the Light On, a book in her popular Friessens series, I've wanted to read his story. You definitely don't need to read Leave the Light On before reading this one as Vic was a minor (but memorable) character in that book. He is a very wealthy man and owns a construction company with locations in multiple states. In Don't Stop Me we learn that Vic's past wasn't so stellar. That past comes knocking on his door in more ways than one. A reporter has dug up information on something that happened in Vic's past that also affects the only women he ever loved. They haven't seen each other in 15 years and now Vic must find her so that he can protect her from what the reporter wants to print. Wow! I loved the little bit of Vic that we got to see in Leave the Light On and he's even more alpha and yummy in his own story. Don't Stop Me has a bit of mystery and intrigue as well as lots of heat between Vic and Fiona. We also get to meet one of Vic's brothers, Chase, and I'm looking forward to reading his story soon. About the narration…This is the first audiobook I've listened to by Jaclynn Michelle Elfring. She did a great job with different voices for the characters in the story and she has a pleasing voice. The main reason I only gave her performance 3 stars is the phrasing was off in way more than a few places. It didn't exactly take me out of the story but it was definitely noticeable. She only has two book on Audible so I'm hoping that she's new to audiobook narration and that she will improve with more experience. A review copy of this audiobook was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author. #HappyEnding #Heartfelt #FemaleProtagonist #tagsgiving #sweepstakes #Tearjerker #Suspenseful #PastMeetsPresent
