Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
I don't understand all the bad reviews. I thought this was a good steamy romance. Most "romance" books these days seem to have very little plot with heavy emphasis on sex scenes. I'm not a prude and I mostly enjoy the adult content but I do like to have a good plot. This delivered on both for me. It had great characters, a good mystery and a HEA. Basically everything I expect in a good romance book.
If you don't care for this genre or you don't like hot sex scenes then this one is not for you (probably the reason for some of the bad reviews).
I thought the narration was good as well. This is set in London in the 1700's why shouldn't the narrator have an English accent? Again, I don't get the negative reviews but narration is a personal preference.
This was a credit worthy listen for me.
Hands down my favorite book so far of 2014. I loved this one, but it’s so hard to describe what type of book it actually is…Sci-Fi? Romance? Mystery? Dystopian Fiction? This book had everything including jaw-dropping plot twists and turns.
I’m deliberately going to be very vague with this review so I don’t spoil any of the brilliant details of this book. The overall plot was not exactly new but it was presented with a fresh and unique perspective. From the very first chapter to the last I was hooked on this one and could not stop listening. Some might consider the middle of this book a little slow but it was essential to the build-up of the mystery. I thought I had this one all figured out but I couldn’t have been more wrong. I love it when a book surprises me.
I can’t wait until Prototype is release this summer. Thankfully this is not a trilogy and I won’t have to wait a whole year to get the conclusion to this stunning and sensational story!
5 HUGE stars!
BEWARE: Maya Banks books are HOT! If you are not into Erotica then this book is not for you. If you enjoy your books with spicy sex scenes and weak subplots then this is the perfect series!! Don't say I didn't warn you about this one.....it's a scorcher!
I enjoy these books because they are wildly entertaining. If I was looking for a literary classic I would go elsewhere.
My only complaint is the narrator. Caroline Wintour = Coleen Marlo. I felt duped since she is not one of my favorites. She's not bad, just not my favorite.
Otherwise this one is HOT, HOT, HOT and such a guilty pleasure.
5 stars for sex scenes
3 stars for the rest
Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
Wow, just wow! First, let me say that at the time of this review this book is under $4 for a full length book! Then let me say, I would have gladly paid $30 for it!
I will warn you, this IS erotica, the entire book was a dance of emotionally charged getting to know you hot hot hot graphic graphic graphic steam! This book is mostly from the viewpoint of the female Dom Mistress Violet. The author lets you into the Dom's head in what she is thinking and feeling while trying to break in a new sub, Mackenzie. Mac is not a typical sub...he's all alpha male hard ass cop...but he is wired to want to be controlled in the bedroom. He knows in his heart he is a sub, but no Mistress has ever fully broken him and he has never willingly surrendered.
Seeing into the mindset of a Dom was fascinating. Watching this story unfold was riveting! I did feel that the narrator took too many diction lessons...a bit curt with her enunciations but it didn't detract from the story too much. Listening to how a Dom/sub relationship is forged was really enlightening and entertaining. If you like erotica even a little then this should be an automatic download for you. There was passion, chemistry, hot scenes, a murder mystery, and a keep you guessing till the end plot. It had me at minute one! Just hit add to cart!
