Summary

Mean Streak: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!

From #1 The New York Times best-selling author Sandra Brown comes a heart-pounding story of survival, that takes the age-old question, "Does the end justify the means?" and turns it on its head.

Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a pediatrician and marathon runner, disappears on a mountain road in North Carolina. By the time her husband Jeff, miffed over a recent argument, reports her missing, the trail has grown cold. Literally. Fog and ice encapsulate the mountainous wilderness and paralyze the search for her.

While police suspect Jeff of "instant divorce", Emory, suffering from an unexplained head injury, regains consciousness and finds herself the captive of a man whose violent past is so dark that he won't even tell her his name. She's determined to escape him and willing to take any risks necessary to survive.

Unexpectedly, however, the two have a dangerous encounter with people who adhere to a code of justice all their own. At the center of the dispute is a desperate young woman whom Emory can't turn her back on, even if it means breaking the law. Wrong becomes right at the hands of the man who strikes fear but also sparks passion. 

As her husband's deception is revealed, and the FBI closes in on her captor, Emory begins to wonder if the man with no name is, in fact, her rescuer from those who wish her dead - and from heartbreak.

Combining the nail-biting suspense and potent storytelling that has made Sandra Brown one of the world's best loved authors, Mean Streak is a wildly compelling novel about love, deceit, and the choices we must make in order to survive.

Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

Couldn't finish BookTalk is not for me.

Story was good up until the point I had to give up. The music was off putting, louder than the narration in places and completely out of time at times. I'll get the book without BookTrack when I find it.

Awful Background Music

Distracted by background music which was at times not even adapted to the scene. I think this let the story down.

Intriguing

I almost skipped over this because of the reviews, but glad I didn't. I find the music complimented the story very well. Audiobooks usually put me to sleep, but the music kept me engaged. I only wish it was a bit more audible. Sometimes it was little hard to hear, wishing I could turn it up a little.

Narrator was great, music was not

I really enjoyed the voice of the narrator. However, this is the first book (of many that I have listened to from Audible) that also plays music intermittently throughout the story. There were many times that the music was louder than the narrator and others where the tempo of the music did not coincide with the storyline (soft music during an action scene, loud during a conversation, etc.) I hope this is just an isolated case because I really love listening to books on audio.

The background music was extremely annoying

The music was so annoying. It completely ruined the book for me. If there is going to be music I won't listen.

Good book, horrible background music

This would have been a 5 star book for me except the background music. It was like someone just played random music that didn’t go with the story line at all.

Distracting Music

Beginning with Books on Tape, Inc., Books on CD,, through other company names, I’ve been an audio book listener since 1989. I have literally listened to thousands of hours of audio books. The low score I gave for the performance rating is not due to the skills of the narrator; he did a fine job. However, I found the music to be extremely distracting. During the first part of the book, the music was not an issue. However, after several hours (when I was too far engaged in the plot to pull the plug), the music became loud in parts, nearly obscuring the narration and making me have to replay it just to figure out what the narrator was reading. At times, the music genre was inappropriate to the narrative, which was especially aggravating. In the future, I’m going to avoid purchasing audio books embellished with music.
