Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I'm not into the bdsm stuff that is all the craze now, but I have to say it works if it is from both sides and in small amounts. Only one part towards the end that I felt could have been left out and I would have like the book better. Of course I love this series. This is not my favorite book in it, but it is still awesome. The book defiantly starts out with a hate/hate relationship. Thea Harrison has great character development and over time Aryal and Quentin come together perfectly. The Dragon Bound series is an immediate download for me. I have enjoyed the narrator, which is the same one as the rest of the series. Read in order for max enjoyment.
Great short stories to be added to the Psy-changling series. Of course I hope you read the other books first but here is some info on the stories. I added how long each book is because sometimes that factures into what I listen to by how much time I have. Don't want to start something really good right before the weekend starts.
Beat of Temptation. Nate and Tamsyn's prequel story, I was glad they included this story on audible. They are the foundation couple in all of the other stories. 2h 42m.
Stroke of Enticement. Annie and Zach story is written after Hostage to Pleasure. I don't think this couple is in any of the other stories, but I may be wrong. 2h 38m.
Declaration of Courtship. Cooper and Grace's story, read after Tangle of Need. 3h 27m.
Texture of Intimacy. Warren and Lara's story, got to love these two. Read after Kiss of Snow. 2h 54m.
Okay my warning first. If you are squeamish about gay romances don't read this book. It is explicit. Now if you have read the other books you will have an idea about the sex details Tina Folsom goes into. Anyway if you like the other books and have no problem with gay romance novels then I recommend the story. Of course I recommend starting at the beginning with Samson's Lovely Mortal to get the full effect of the series, which are mostly romances with some fantasy. I enjoyed this book as much as all the other books and will continue with the series until the end. Narrator is good, he is the same narrator as the last book.
I have bought the other 3 books in this series, and listened to them, other than reading them, solely on Eric Dove's narration. I was so looking forward to this book, they are all so good. Then, right off the bat, Eric seemed to be speeding through the dialog so fast, that I could hardly recognize his voice.
I listened to samples of the other books, and sure enough, it just wasn't the same. So, I read some of the other reviews, and found out that I'm not alone in this complaint! One listener suggested slowing down the pace on the ipod, so that's what I ended up doing. It didn't sound perfect, cause it kinda sounded like listening through a speaker system. But, it was better than speeding my way through the book. Ms. Ward's lines are so cleaver, that you just need to listen to them slowly, and that is what Eric does with the other books. I don't exactly know how, it can be remedied, but I hope they work it out before the next book. I think on book 5, I'll wait for a few reviews, before buying it on audio.
Otherwise, I loved the book,.
