This was a typical cheesy romance book, which I enjoy as long as it's well-written and the romance is believable, but I didn't find this to be well-written or well-plotted. Plus I HATED the mythology--it is not typical vampires, but a weird sci-fi twist on vampires that I didn't enjoy. I want to read about vampires, not aliens. Yuk.
Love the entire series of three books. Fantastic to listen to. I suggest starting at the first one because you will want to take another bite out of this brilliant author. ;) The narrator, Hillary Huber, is fantastic. You won't regret buying!
Once I started I could NOT hit pause. This was a great story. The NARRATOR GETS BIG props and HIGH 5's she totally made this a series that I will continue to buy and listen to AS LONG as SHE remains the narrator.
Lucan and Gabby opposites but lots of chemistry from the very beggining. I am just sorry I had not heard of Lara Adrians stories before. As they say "Better late than never". Ready for part 2! Happy listening, be ready to get sucked in.
The series is similar to the Black Dagger Brotherhood but not as intense. Adrian has kept a good balance between fantasy and romance in these books which, in my opinion, makes them more engaging then the BDB series. Enough romance to keep me caring about Lucan and Gabrielle's story, but enough action to keep their story interesting.
This book takes itself way too seriously. The male lead character is cold and angry. The author made up for his lack of depth and likability by describing in vivid, excruciating detail everything he and the female lead did in bed. Gross. I ended up fast forwarding through the sex just to finish the darn thing. I could not detect any reason for the stupendous (emphasis on the stupid) chemistry between the leads other than the author had decided to write a romantic vampire novel. I read some favorable reviews, and I can see how this book might appeal to some, but I like characters with less angst. I give the book one star and the narrator one star. Hillary Huber did a very good job (I'd give her more stars, but that would help the book). God knows how she suffered through reading all the sex scenes without laughing or opening a window for some fresh air.
