This was awful. Plastic and inconsistent characters, disjointed plot, and the most AWFUL audio narration. That audio narration was simply painful and made a poorly written story even worse. The narrators ridiculous attempt to speak with some kind of accent, I really hope it wasn't Boston, was torturous to listen to. I wanted to give this book a chance because I really like this authors other books but it seems like this one had all of the flaws of her other books with NONE of the positives. I can't think of one good thing to say about it except that it's over and I know NEVER to listen to another book read by Jennifer Wydra. Awful. ( )

Theresa Matthews met and married Jim Beckett thinking he was everything she'd ever dreamed of. But after becoming pregnant she learns that her perfect husband is hiding a horrific secret. Two years after Tess helps get Jim locked up for the serial murders of ten women, she thinks she and her child are safe. But Jim escapes from his maximum security prison and pledges revenge on his wife. Tess puts her daughter in police protection and then sets out on her own. She believes the time has come to stop running and start fighting for her life, so she turns to the burnt out ex-marine J.T. Dillon for fighting lessons. J.T. has his own demons, and he doesn't want the responsibility of protecting Tess. Battling his way through a horrible childhood, J.T. came out scarred. He knew that he didn't protect his younger sister, Marion, from their father and suffers extreme depression over the loss of his wife and child, the only people he cared for. Now, after two weeks training with Tess, J.T. knows that he cannot lose another woman he's come to care for.

I found the concept for this story to have a lot of potential but it's obvious this was one of the first books ever written by Lisa Gardner. Normally I like them much better than this one. I found the relationship between Tess and J.T. to be pretty shallow and awkwardly written. It didn't make sense to me that a woman with a background of violence in relationships would be attracted to a hot-headed, drunken, and seemingly violent man. The characters were not developed enough for me to care too much about them. To be fair, I'm not a huge fan of romantic suspense.....I like a grittier style of mystery. I think many people will enjoy it more than I did. Lisa Gardner does write some really good books and I've enjoyed her D.D. Warren series quite a bit. Like many early books, Gardner has gotten a lot better with time. ( )

The Perfect Husband
(FBI Profiler Series #1)

What would you do if your perfect husband wasn’t perfect after all?

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

SUMMARY
Strong and handsome, Jim Beckett was everything Tess Williams ever dreamed of for a husband. Two years after Tess married the decorated cop and had his daughter, she helped put him behind bars for savagely murdering ten women. Even locked up in a maximum-security prison, he vowed he would come after her and make her pay. Now he has escaped and Tess is running for her life.

Tess is tired of living in fear, she wants to learn how to protect herself and her daughter. She has sought the help of JT Dillion, a burnt-out ex-marine mercenary. JT has problems of his own and has no interest in helping her evade capture or learn how to fire a gun. As a large manhunt mobilizes, Tess knows that she will have to be the one to face off with her husband because it is she that he wants. Her only choice is to kill or be killed.

REVIEW
THE PERFECT HUSBAND was a suspenseful novel of unrelenting tension.
Lisa Gardner’s writing draws you in with a deranged serial killer on the loose who has promised to cut out his wife’s still beating heart. Tess, of course is scared and you watch delightedly as she evolves from weak and needy into a strong, determined and confident woman doing what it takes to take care of her daughter and her future.

This book was originally published as a romantic suspense or “grisly romance” novel in 1997 and is one where Gardner was transitioning from a romance writer (as Alicia Scott) to ultimately the queen of suspense novels. You’ll find more sex and sexual tension in this novel than in her later suspense works. JT Dillion just can’t seem to keep his clothes on, Perhaps it’s the Arizona heat or perhaps it the massive amount tequila he is consuming, but the man has no inhibitions. If you want romance with your suspense this is the book. I prefer mine without!

Years ago, I started reading this series somewhere in the middle and loved Quincy and Rainie. This book was recently offered as the Deal of the Day on Audible so I thought I would go back to the beginning and see how it all started. FBI Profiler Series #1 Pierce Quincy role is fairly minor, and Rainie Conner does not show up until the next book in the series, but you can tell this is the start of something good. Gardner’s writing has gotten better with time and there is a reason she is a best selling author. She can definitely put a captivating story on paper.

I listened to the Audible version of this book and thought Sarah Zimmerman did a great job with the narration. Easy listening.

I recently purchased a box of paperbacks at an auction. My prime intent was to donate the entirety to a rehabilitation facility that had a limited library. I have donated many but I have put aside several for "light " reading. Two weeks later I have devoured a lot of them. Some good, some unreadable and quickly donated. This jewel was a fascinating read and I did it in 24 hiurs.

Maybe not the best suspension novel, maybe full of raw sex, but oh my, the twist was so perfect, so unforeseeable that I literally gasped and laid the book down!!

A good read. Worth 4 stars but knocked to 31/2 due to the sappy sex scenes. ( )
