    1. 4.5 stars!!Having read almost all of Sandra Brown’s books, I was really worried that this book wouldn’t captivate me at all. That turned out to be a misplaced fear. I will admit that some of Brown’s recent releases aren’t up to standard compared to her older work, but I believe longtime fans (and newbies) will find a winner with Mean Streak. Written with romantic undertones, this story will keep you on your toes and deliver plot twists up until the very end of the book.************Renown [...]


    2. Okay, I know what you’re thinking. Another 5 star rating for Sandra Brown! How could that be right? Well this woman writes some pretty amazing books. Where to begin….I don’t think it really is fair for me to give too much detail about the plot. For starters I really wouldn’t know where to begin with this one. Then of course I wouldn’t want to give anything away because IMO with a suspense novel, one little thing could really ruin it for you.I’m going to try and just give you some tid [...]



    3. Dr Emory Charbonneau, preparing for an upcoming marathon, disappears while on a twenty-mile run in the high mountain altitude of North Carolina. Suffering from a concussion, she wakes in a hut with a man who claims he found her unconscious in the snow, and who refuses to give her his name. With no phone, no way of communicating with the outside world, and with thick fog and heavy, falling snow, it is impossible to leave.As usual in a Sandra Brown thriller there are twists and turns, red herrings [...]


    4. 4.5 Stars!!Well played Sandra Brownwell played!!!Kudos for the jaw dropping revelations! You really got me a few times! Not that it's that hard! This was definitely veering off the path of what I normally read but I really enjoyed it. Could have done with a bit more romance but the story kept me engaged and had me guessing until the very last page!


    5. Story Rating ~ 5 Stars!Hero Rating ~ 5 Stars!Heroine Rating ~ 5 Stars!Romance Rating ~ 4 Stars!Heat Level ~ 3.5 StarsEnding ~ 5 Stars!Overall Rating ~ 5, HE ALWAYS DID WHAT HE SAID STARS!Mean Streak was an AMAZING read for me. The story starts off with the heroine Emory and her husband Jeff having an argument over her training and running marathons. Right off the bat I STRONGLY disliked her husband, he was so self-absorbed, I wanted to smack him upside his head. When Emory gets ready to leave to [...]


    6. 4 StarsMean Streak is a suspenseful, edge of your seat read, with twist and turns around every corner.Dr. Emory Charbonneau is a very successful pediatrician, beloved within her social and work community, but her marriage is a different story. While training for a marathon, her life takes an unexpected detour. On an isolated North Carolina mountain road, Emory disappears, and the search begins.Emory wakes up to a concussion in a remote cabin, in the company of a mysterious man. He claims to have [...]

Her husband, Jeff, does not report her missing for a few days and then the trail is gone cold.

    8. 5 STARS[image error]He kissed her like he meant it, like this kiss was going to be the last thing he ever did on earth, and he was going to do it right, thoroughly, and leave nothing wanting.Yes, I’m back to Sandra Brown. And honestly, I just can’t get enough of these suspense/thriller/romances. These books have kept me on the edge of my seat, like a page-turning maniac. And I am always struggling to work it all out in my head. This one was no different, although a little more predictable th [...]


    9. Mean Streak was my first reading experience by Sandra Brown, but it won’t be my last. It was a cleverly crafted mystery with plenty of suspense, danger, twists and turns, and a very sexy romance! I think it’s best to go in with just the barest of facts and relish the mystery and revelations as they come.Dr. Emory Charbonneau is training for a marathon and goes on a strenuous mountain trail, gets knocked out and wakes up in a stranger’s cabin without any knowledge of how she got there. The [...]


    10. This was a mind-blowing read. Everything about this book was amazing, except the part where the heroine, Emory, cheated on her husband. I must admit, I almost put this book down as soon as I knew that she had sex with another man. Of course, as a reader, I knew what was really going on and that her husband was cheating on her, but according to the story, Emory hadn't known that fact! Although she suspected her husband was cheating on her, there was no evidence. It doesn't matter how bad he was, [...]


    11. Sandra Brown has truly outdone herself with this book, and that is saying a lot. What a refreshing read, and not because of the subject matter. Because this is what an amazing author can throw at uslook, Mom! There are still authors like this out there!!! Look, EVERYONE!!! THERE ARE STILL AMAZING AUTHORS OUT THERE!!!! WITH ENTIRELY NEW STORIES TO TELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Her characters are unique, her plot is full and fast paced, the sex was hot, yet romantic and tasteful, the suspense was intenset [...]


    12. "Suspension of disbelief" shouldn't feel like your brain is dangling from a bungee cord . I'm so disappointed in this. Absurd plot, cardboard heroine, hero whose bizarre behavior has to be explained with a backstory so convoluted it felt like something Brown put off until she could no longer postpone giving him a motive. (" so then the reason I allowed you to believe you'd been assaulted and kidnapped by a deranged mass murderer is that I didn't want to upset you. Or something Shit, that's lame. [...]


    13. Hayes. Emory. These are intriguing and perfect character names to take us on a thrilling romantic ride. I’m new to this genre, but Sandra Brown does this so well! How good is this:Sorry, Doc.For what?Keeping you awake.I haven’t complained.So, you want me to stop?No.Don’t stop this?No. God no. Don’t…don’t stop.You’ll have to be the one who says you’ve had enough.I’m not there yet.Good because I can’t stop.Given my newness to this racy romance thriller thing, I noticed in a fla [...]



    14. Oh Sandra Brown! Good ol' trusty reliable Sandra Brown. Always a good read! No exceptions for this gripping romantic thriller with its twists and turns and steamy love scenes. I really enjoyed it.While training for a marathon in the freezing conditions of the North American wilderness, Dr Emery Charbonneau loses consciousness and wakes in a cabin with a head injury, being nursed back to health by a rugged and extremely mysterious man. However, mystery man isnt giving even giving her his name, an [...]


    15. 3 starsEmory finds herself unconscious with an unexplained head injury. Now in the hands of a mysterious stranger. Who is he?The story was gripping from the beginning. I liked both MCs but where it failed to reach higher marks is I would have personally preferred more romance than suspense. The suspense side was exhausting and I felt like I needed some answers sooner.There was some good twists and one liners but just missing that little bit extra to convince me of their romance with Fran, Ada an [...]


    16. Bueno, al final le pongo un 3.5 que no da para másDespués de unos días de su lectura, tengo que bajarle la puntuación que le puse en un principio. No voy a cambiar la reseña que hice, porque en términos generales sigo pensando lo mismo, pero algo en la historia no termina de encajarme, y yo necesito que todo encaje.Antes le había dado 4.5. Realmente me ha gustado mucho! Creo que la autora a sabido tejer con maestría unos personajes únicos; creíbles. Sobre todo si hablamos del personaje [...]


    17. 4-4.5 STARSThis was my first SB book, and I loved it!Chock full of suspense, twists and turns, red herrings and powerful sexual tension, it was completely satisfying in every way. I loved the various third person pov's and how things were built up slowly allowing you to simmer in an air of mystery and intrigue. This was also very intelligent and well written leaving me eager to get my hands on more of this authors work.I loved Emory. She was a great character devoted to doing the right things. I [...]


    18. 4 StarsOnce again Sandra Brown had me guessing who done it all the way to the end. You think you have it figured out then you get smacked upside the head with the real villain. Emory is a wife and a pediatrician. She also loves to run. She works a lot and her free time is usually spent training for marathons. This doesn't sit well with her husband Jeff. He's mad that she's going off for the weekend to train in the mountains. Jeff isn't worried when Emory doesn't come home the next day. He's stil [...]


    19. Sandra Brown is one of my favourite romantic suspense writers and whilst her latest book, Mean Streak is a good one, it’s not as good as some of her earlier novels like Breath of Scandal and French Silk, just two of my favourites.One of the things she does well is how she manages to surprise me every time.just when I think I have it all worked outI know who the villain isM, not anything I thought I knew!!!! And once again, she does this in this fast paced story that includes betrayals, murders [...]


    20. I absolutely LOVE a fabulous mystery with intrigue, danger, secrets and lies, and of course, sexual tension. Ms. Brown has this all going on in spades in this book!!On top of all that, her characters are fantastic. Loved the two MCs and the secondary characters are just as engaging; rich with personality, complexity and witty dialogue. "She wanted to experience him, every rough surface, every gruff word, his outdoorsy scent, the whiskey taste of his breath, the arrogant jut of his penis.""Most o [...]


    21. 3.5 starsThis book was definitely a page turner, my first Sandra Brown book. I'm not sure I felt that all of the dots were connected in the end, some things didn't make sense to me. (view spoiler)[ His reason for staying hidden didn't make sense, and why would his sister go into hiding? (hide spoiler)]. I really enjoyed it though with Ami, Fran and Ada:)) Thanks for leaving me cool spoilers!


    22. I haven’t read a suspense novel in ages and this was the perfect book to get me excited about the genre again. So many twists and turns! I absolutely loved it!I’m going to keep the information about the book fairly brief, because not knowing what to expect is half the fun with this type of read. I didn’t read many reviews before going into this, just looked over ratings and I’m so glad because I had no idea where the story would lead me in the end. Dr. Emory Charbonneau is an esteemed pe [...]


    23. Review posted at: SweptAwayByRomance4.5 Suspenseful Stars!When Dr. Emory Charbonneau, a renowned pediatrician, avid marathoner, and philanthropist disappears while training for a marathon in the mountains of North Carolina. The local police fear the worst, however her husband, Jeff, has not reported her missing. He hasn't heard from her in two days, but isn't worried and thinks she's trying to punish him for an argument they had before her disappearance. He proceeds spend the weekend with his lo [...]



    24. Mean Streak is a standalone novel written by author Sandra Brown. It is the first novel I have ever read by Ms. Brown and it was pretty damn good! I would say Mean Streak falls in the genres of romantic suspense and mystery. I drew several different conclusions while reading this book, and although one of them turned out to be correct, this story is in no way predictable. It has some pretty major twists and turns in it, which kept me fully engaged. I couldn't wait to find out what was going to h [...]


    25. As always, Sandra Brown does not disappoint in delivering a great suspense!I've read this book several times already. And althoug this one is not my favorite of hers it's still good.If y'all don't know by now, my personal favorite of Sandra's is Envy and I can't help but compare all her other books to that one.Anyway, Happy reading! Peace,A.


    26. Reseña completa: masromance/203.5 Intento explicarme, aunque diré que ayer no pude soltarla hasta terminarlaComplicado comentar esta novela.Iba para más estrellas, pero el final no estuvo a la altura1.- Como thriller, solo decir que toda la novela engancha, y no sabéis a qué nivel. Muy buen ritmo y el protagonista se gana él solo tu atención. el problema es que el final no creo que esté a la altura y, para mí, ha sido algo predecible2.- Como novela romántica no es una buena historia. E [...]


    27. 3.5 StarsI didn't know how to rate this one initially, but after sleeping on it, I decided on 3 and a half stars. The thing is I was very intrigued, but I didn't find myself emotionally invested in their story. I wasn't totally sold on the romance aspect either. Also, I felt like the reveal dragged a little bit. However, I was completely not expecting what happened in the end, though I probably should have. Thanks for the BR Ami, Jeanne and Ada.
