3.0 out of 5 stars Fun, but just a little disappointing December 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I consider every other John Locke book has written to be 5 star books. Unfortunately, I can't say that for Call Me. I enjoyed the book and liked the plot and the humor (as always), but I wasn't in love with the two main characters. Dani is beautiful, smart, and funny; but something is missing that I can't quite articulate. Maybe it was her friendship with Sofe. I found Sofe to be okay at times, but most of the time she was annoying and needy. I don't have any problem with Dani being attracted to another woman - I just didn't believe that her character would fall for Sofe. Just my opinion... Overall it's a fun read, but it's not quite at the level of the Creed and Emmett books.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a ride November 20, 2011
By Oteka
Format:Kindle Edition
As a huge fan of the Donovan Creed series I was not sure what to expect from this new protagonist. But John Locke does not disappoint. From the moment I downloaded this book until I finished it I was entrapped. Dark but with the humor you expect. Great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Call Me" November 24, 2011
By Kim
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
John Locke expanded his creativity with this book, temporarily stepping away from the great Donovan Creed & Emmett Gentry series. I've read all his books, have them in my collection as well as sharing them with others to read.

John Locke continues to create wonderful writing that keep you always wanting more & sad when you finish the current book. His characters never cease to creep into your heart and make themselves at home.

I'm always looking forward to his next book and will keep waiting for all the ones to come in the future.

Keep up the great work John.

3.0 out of 5 stars for the price, can't complain December 6, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read so many john locke books that they're beginning to meld into one. I swore I had read this one before but it's just the regurgitated characters. Still enough entertainment to give it 3 stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some good some not so good November 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm totally hooked on John Locke novels, but this series, if it is to be, does not stack up against Creed. The book kept my attention well enough but I'm getting a little tired of all the lesbian foreplay. I'm not sure for whose benefit that is, men or women? Why can't the second best looking woman on the planet just have good friend.

I could be wrong, but somewhere hidden in my memory cells I seem to recall a plot similar to this in another book or movie.

On the good side I was pleasantly surprised that the book tied in some what cha call Creed business accociates to save the day.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing November 27, 2011
By Gabby
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I must have missed something because I did not enjoy this book. I was a bit disappointed in that it was not up to the John Locke standard that I have for one of my favorite authors. I did not like the character, nor her friend Sophie. I felt there were too many gaps within Dani's story. Sorry but I was not impressed.

3.0 out of 5 stars just ok December 18, 2011
By fpright

This book was OK but not up to the level of previous Locke books. I think that the Dani character has potential so I hope that if there is another, it comes up to the level of Donavan Creed or Emmett Love.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not My Favorite Locke Novel September 17, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Dani Ripper is a pseudonym for a woman who, in her younger years, managed to escape the maniacal ManChild, a murderer and all around sadist for whom Dani spends her private investigating downtime searching. She needs to find him to be at peace, to feel safe again. Of course, there are forces working against her.

That's the crux of "Call Me", my most recent Locke read.

Having started with "Bad Doctor" (my far and away favorite), I read all the Dr. Gideon Box books and moved on the Dani Ripper series with mixed emotions. What Locke does well is that he weaves all of his characters including Dani and ManChild, who appear in the Box books, through all of his other stories. Everything is connected, and I like that.

What I didn't like about "Call Me" is the cheese factor. By that, I mean character names like Paul Small and the law offices of Tonsil, Palate, and Uvula. There were too many of these things to not notice and those are just a couple. There was a Chris Fist in there, too, I believe. This distracted from the story, as did the fact that as a woman reading a book written by a man as if he were also a woman, the authenticity was beyond questionable. The marital circumstances between Dani and her husband were such that they had sex twice a year and she spent a portion of every week co-habitating with a woman who she may or may not be sexually attracted to. They did things like paint each other's toenails and play school girl sex games (or they would have ... you'll have to read). Little about Dani Ripper seemed genuine and I'm bummed about that because there's no doubt John Locke knows how to write a compelling, page-turner. I did finish the book, which says something about it, but I'm not as eager as my husband was to break into the next Ripper novel. Maybe I have Locke fatigue, but this one just didn't hit the mark for me.

The story was alright but I became impatient as it moved so slowly for me. I read quite a few books each month and realize others probably feel differently.
