I'm a lover of books, both read and audible.
Once again, Ms. Wright had my laughing so hard at work; I got questioning looks from my co workers. This book is hilarious. Jamie doesn’t have as big of a potty mouth as Taryn but that doesn’t make her any less funny. I like Jamie’s strength and courage and her struggles throughout the book, and Dante, WOW!!! He makes me wish to be wolf-shifter.
I love Jill Redfield as a narrator. She always gives the performance that little extra. Such as when a line says the character laughed, she actually says the line laughing. It’s that little extra that makes her reading very enjoyable.
*****This might be a spoiler, but if you read the first book you should be expecting this. The funniest scene in the book was when Taryn went into labor. I literally cried, I was laughing so hard. Thank you Ms. Wright.
Ever since first reading that these books were coming to Audible I have been doing a little happy dance because I love reading them and I was hoping that listening to them would add just the little bit extra, that most audible books do. This book didn’t disappoint me at all. The sex scenes are HOT HOT HOT (muy caliente) and I’m a sucker for a good romance book.
The heroine, Mika, is a human that was adopted by a werewolf female and her human mate. She later finds out about werewolves because she witnesses her uncle shifting from his “doggy” self into his human self. Uncle Omar takes it upon himself to explain the basic of the werewolf community, so that Mika isn’t in the dark about them and all is ok, until she decides to visit her uncle during mating season and is nearly attacked by a group of male werewolves. Grady, the hero, is a half human – half werewolf trying to find acceptance among his own kind. He has no intentions of every mating with a human female because of his mom. He stumbles upon the scene with Mika and the wolves and saves her, not realizes who she is, that is until Mika’s uncle assign Grady to be her bodyguard during her visit and mating season is over. Sexual tension between the two is instant. Mika is accepting of the sexual tension and willing to make the best of it. Grady is refusing to give into the temptation. I’m not going to give any spoilers away, just telling you to read the book. But be warned, this book contains A LOT of hot, steamy sex scenes. May cause pulse to speed, eyes to dilate and blood to heat. If this isn’t your kind of reading, stay away. But if you enjoy these sensations, OMG please read.
I like the narrator’s voice. But I have my suspicion that she is using a different name with this book then with previously titles she has narrated.
Triton, a bad boy Greek God, is punished by Zeus for sleeping with Zeus’ mistress. His punishment, he is exiled to Earth to find a mortal woman that will love him for him and not his good looks that make all the girls go OWWWW!!!! Sophie is a mortal that is trying to open a B&B in the midst of financial problems, a seedy contractor, and a deceiving cousin, oh, did I mention she has recently had a horrible accident that has render her mostly blind. Triton sees this as the perfect opportunity to woo Sophia because she is blind and she won’t be able to judge him based on his looks.
I decided to listen to this book because I adore Tina’s Scanguard Vampires series. Although the storyline is predictable, its redeeming quality is the interaction between Triton, Dionysus, Hermes and Eros. Tina has the ability to write a story that delivers humor and witty comebacks that causes the reader/listener to smile or laugh while they are listening to the story. The fours gods were hilarious and offer a nice shake up throughout the story. I also thought Sophia’s best friend was funny as well. As always, Tina writes some steamy, hot romance scenes. Seriously be careful, they might melt your headphones.
Eric did a great job with the narration. Unlike some male narration, they have a tendency to make the female voices shrill and too high. Eric did a nice balance with the female voice, making them feminine without high shrill. His narration for Triton curled my toes, yumm!!
Worth a credit, sure. The story is enjoyable and the characters are quite likable if not just a bit predictable.
