What a great listen! In a similar vein of FSOG, Bared to you, etc. etc. this book was delicious. It's a quick listen so things get straight to the point. I would be remiss not to immediately mention that two seconds in when the male narrator Shane East began speaking I knew this was going to be a scorcher! Grace Grant is good too, but I can't wait to get to book 2 when it's all Shane. I already am intrigued by the characters, especially Ethan---yummy! This seems to be the beginning of a dramatic romance, and I am HOOKED. I listened to this practically in one sitting. As it was coming to the end as I prepared to leave for work, I was almost late leaving because I HAD to immediately buy books 2 & pre-order 3 so my listening wouldn't be interrupted!
This book was PHENOMENAL! I thoroughly enjoyed every second of book 2 in the Blackstone series. Shane East---Ohhhhh Lordy is he an AWESOME narrator! His voice is ridiculous--in the best possible way. This second book is even better than the first, and I cannot wait to hear what happens next with Ethan and Brynne in book 3--which I've pre-ordered already. I know it's fiction but, I am always "smitten" by these great male leads in the books I listen to, and Ethan is definitely in my swoon-worthy category of male lead characters. He's flawed, possessive, with a smidge of crazy, but, I love it! The humor that is infused throughout the book had me laughing out loud, and the intensity of their relationship made me hang on every word until the end. This is without a doubt credit worthy or just buy the whole trilogy outright, you will not be disappointed.
I highly anticipated this third installment of this series and it was equally as enjoyable as the preceding books. This book, as it is the final in the series (will there be another???? I don't think so), was more about tying up loose ends, new beginnings, and coming to terms with various circumstances. I love, love, LOVE the Professor, so any story further delving into the inner workings of his mind is great story to me. Additionally, there were several characters that have been players in each book that created interesting subplots, and if the author so desired, their characters were richly developed enough to have stories of their own in the future. I wouldn't mind one featuring Simon...talk about 'just desserts' in this story..wow!
As usual the narration was awesome....JMM is a GREAT Professor....I could listen to him all day...and that's basically what I did and have done with each book in the series. If this is your first introduction to Gabriel Emerson, start from the beginning---I don't think these are stand alone books. They are so much better when you have the foundation of the first and second books. The Professor is worth multiple credits and 10 stars!!
Make no mistake between my personality and my attitude. My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.........
First time with this author and narrator in which I was pleasantly surprised!! Reviews weren't that spectacular on Goodreads, so the narrator must have brought it the extra distance since I really enjoyed the book.
Obviously there is enough material for other books in the series, but don't see any planned?????
