I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
I've had this book in my library for some time and I was determined not to listen to it until the other book in the series came out due to the previous reviews. Unfortunately I just gave into temptation. Afterall, I do have the other book pre-ordered I rationalized to myself. I have waited long enough and the other installment will be here soon. I have offically joined the club of just "WOW". I'm glad I waited as long as I did. For those of you who have listened to this one as soon as it came out I really feel for you. If you haven't got this one yet then get ready to enjoy and just be warned you will have to have the next book.
If you follow my reviews you know I prefer a particular type of book and this is my "thing". I know this series will easily make my top 10.
New series, new species and I want them all!! Please sign me up for my own Cyborg please.I enjoyed this book and I'm planning on getting them all. Yum Yum.
I don't mind using my credits for this series of books.
Sometimes Maya gets me, sometimes she doesn't. I carry on a love/hate relationship with her books. This was a love one. She got me wrapped into this story just like I love to be. I enjoyed every sexy, angst filled moment. In my opinion this one was HOT, just the way I like them.So from me it's a YES, its so worth the credit, but this one didn't cost too much to go ahead and purchase instead.
The mystery serving as the premise of this book and the heroine's attempt to solve it was totally implausible. I give the author extra credit for working in the premise of a current reality TV show. And the rapidity with which the main characters connected and became attached was far fetched as well. Yet I enjoyed the book and while the mystery didn't keep me guessing and the suspense was negligible the story still had enough interesting characters and fascinating settings to be entertaining. It moved along quickly and the heroine, while annoying, was also quirky and endearing at times.
Grace Grant/Madeleine Maby has become one of my favorite narrators. I will listen to anything she narrates. She is a big reason I enjoyed the book so much.
Two complaints - first I got tired of listening to "I love him, he's perfect for me, it's just about sex, he must love me, I don't deserve him, he's crazy, I love him, he's perfect ..." The author took self-doubt to a whole new level and it got annoying quickly. You became conditioned to the fact that every time the heroine had a positive thought about the hero and their future, it would immediately be followed by doubt and insecurity, usually with no explanation as to why she couldn't hold on to one opinion for longer than 15 seconds.
Finally, the end of this book reminded me of the cliff hanger on an old two part episode of Dallas or Charlie's Angels. It was silly, and rather insulting. While I am resigned to the fact that authors can't seem to tell a story in one novel and now require a minimum of three, there is usually enough closure at the end of each book that if you don't read the next you can still be reasonably satisfied with where the book ended. That wasn't the case here and the author should have just written one long book. The ending upset me enough that rather than encouraging me to read the next book, it almost made me refuse to read it, even knowing I would probably enjoy it. If it wasn't for the narrator, I was angry enough about the ending I would have stopped and not read the second book in the series. This was not a good way to treat your readers.
