I cant even listen to this i tried speeding it up half a point and still its dulllllll
I'm sorry Jason, but this just wasn't your cup of tea. The pace is too slow and sometimes the voices overlap making the listerner wonder who's talking.
The novelty of the steamy sex scenes quickly wore off since they are incredibly similar to the ones in book 1. Anyone else know two different men that make love exactly the same way? Not very believable.
The story itself is slightly more believable than book 1. But this is not enough to overcome the other shortcomings.
On to book 3 with fingers crossed it gets better...
I love audiobooks! They allow me to do my daily chores and get a book read at the same time.
Jason Adams was a huge change from Zoe Winslow and I almost stopped listening. I am glad I did not because the story line is great. It just takes a little time to warm-up to different narrators. Wish there were more "Hell's Eight" men in the world.
If you are contemplating the book and/or the series and want some hawt! sexy! escapism fun... you can't miss...
I thought it was a creative and fun story read by a narrator who could make even the most prudish man-hater wiggle in her chair (and if graphic sex bothers you maybe a Nora Roberts book might be better choice for you). But before you answer with hate reviews... I know everyone is allowed their own opinions, IT'S why God made so many flavors of ice cream. (Mine just happens to be the dynamic duo of Sarah and Jason)
I really hope he gets to narrate more of her series. Sarah may always be controversial, but from my little corner of the Planet it was a blast to listen to... once, twice (and even bookmark some of the reallllly nice parts.)
In my experience, life has way of being much too serious and MUCH to short to worry about how much sex is just too sexy! I would honestly suggest you take that ride along with Sarah and Jason and if he doesn't make you purr a time or two, you might be just taking life AND yourself a tad too seriously.
For those that love the genre it is totally worth a credit, just to see where you fall in the swoon-when-he-tells-the-story or grumbles-he-just-doesn't-do-it-for-you side of the fence.
Here's to hoping you enjoy it as much as I did!!!
P.S. For the person that called it "down and dirty"... you say that like it's a bad thing!
I love the series so I was committed to reading it but this one was my least favorite. The voice of the narrator was instantly off-putting, almost nasal. It was very difficult to decifer which character was speaking, save the annoying voice given to Maddie. I like the storyline but it was difficult to listen to.
I will listen to this book again, the story was good it does make you love some Texas Rangers.
Sam is what we want in a lone Texas Ranger to be, big, strong and even tempered. I liked that there were a number of fights and challenges along the characters travels. Bella was just handful enough to deal with this member of Hell's Eight.
Jason is the "voice" of the Rangers now for me deep, slow and dangerous. He had just enough emotion in his performance to keep you listening.
"Hell's Eight - Texas Rangers - PLEASE!!!!"
It will take you a little while to get use to the narrators female voices, but his voice for Sam and the other male characters will make up for it. It's action packed from the start.
HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Books outside HOT genre = books given to me to review
There were many, Bella's 'innocence'.
Great, strong, gravely voice!
Adult themes, loosely 'historical' references (something I don't care for but did not bother me in this series). I really liked this book.
The story line is okay, but the narrator is not a good fit for the story. Yes, he has the deep sexy sound of a cowboy, but his voicing of Isabelle had no inflection what so ever. Just found his portrayal of her stilted and wimpy. Even Sam was read at one level. That made for a slow and almost boring listen.
No, I do like the genre.
Only after a good sampling of the book & characters.
Yes, I did not care to much for the first installment of this series but this one was a bit better. Jason Adams' narration is what kept me listening though; so if he is the reader, I would definitely listen to another.
He has an amazing voice (especially for romance/erotica) and kept a great pace throughout - he could read the yellow pages and it would sound hot!!
Romance Novel Lover
I know some of the reviews have not been so nice on the male narrator but I thoroughly enjoyed hearing this sexy voice that seems to match with Sams strong personality. I must admit it was slow starting but ended with a bang. Loved this one. will listen again once I finish the series. I skipped Tucker's story because of the reviews and the criticism of the Writing involving leading lady's overuse of thee and thou. I believe the reviews that it would get irritating quickly and id hate to waste a credit :). i May circle back to it once I finish all available on audible until a new one comes out. I'm reading Ms McCarty's Promise series on my Kindle and love those as well!
