I enjoyed the narrator in this one so much more than I did in A Quick Bite, the first book in the Argenau Vampires series. She had passion in her reading. None of the monotone I was forced to endure with the first book.
When Etienne saves Rachel after she saves him.
Much better than it did in the first book, though the voice she used for Etienne, the main male character, made him sound kind of slow and unattractive… Maybe even a little bit dumb at times. That was probably my biggest complaint about the narrator. I loved all her other voices for the other characters just not Etienne's.
I did listen to it all in one sitting… But that was not because the book was so compelling I couldn't help myself, it was because I was doing something that took long enough for the book to finish.
Regardless of what the narrator did or didn't do with this book, it is well worth reading in its written form. This is a great series!
The story is delightful, great fun, and exciting, and the narrator is much better than in "A Quick Bite." But one is spoiled with so many terrific narrators out there that one with weak characterization spoils a great story. Ms Dawe did get much better in the last few chapters. She will probably develop with more practice.
The Argenau family is a great cast of characters, makes for lighthearted and fun storyline. I do enjoy the author's take of what a vampire are.I really enjoy this book!
I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
Setting: Los Angeles contemporary
Genre: Paranormal romance
This was a story about a vampire being hunted unsuccessfully by an unstable person, and a woman who was turned into a vampire against her will. The sanity-impaired guy keeps trying to kill Etienne who in a couple of instances shows up at the morgue for post-mortem examination. He heals himself before Rachel, the coroner on duty, can cut him in both cases. In the second episode, she saves her recently revived patient by taking an axe in the chest. She's dying quickly, so Etienne decides to change her into a vampire. The story revolves around catching the murderous flake, and Rachel dealing with her vampirism. There was no nail-biting suspense, but there were a few laughs. I did get pissed off at Rachel, because she was all up in arms about being changed against her will. What? She'd rather have bled out on the floor of the morgue? The story here was a high average if you like a light paranormal romance. Dracula this is not, so skip it if that is your preference.
The narration brought this to the high in average. Angela Dawe is uneven in her performances. Some are good, some not so much. This was one of the good ones.
In regards to this series, I do wish they'd find a good narrator and stick with her (or him) throughout. Ah well, that's not to be the case...
I like this one on audio about the same as reading it. This book is light and fluffy so it was easy and smooth. The Blurb is pretty accurate about how Etienne Argeneau found his lifemate in Rachel Garrett.
This 300 year old vampire met his match in the Night shift coroner and it was an entertaining journey. I will slowly make my way through this series

It's well worth a credit. I've read this book many times and now bought it in audio form and quite enjoyed it.
I love how Lynsay Sands writes w/ a since of humor. Love the characters.
She wasn't amazing but better than most I've listened to.
Love really Bites (Wink, Wink)
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
I enjoyed the audio edition of Love Bites better than the print version because Angela Dawe brought personalities to each character.
Rachael seemed to be the most free.
When they were locked out behind Eitiennes home.
love to escape in to my Books, Historical, Highlander Scottish Romance , Mysteries & Suspense , Time Travel the Classics, Paranormal Romance
Love the Argeneaus
Etienne’s and Rachael's story was great
I love listening
I laughed and enjoyed the interaction between Etienne and Rachael and with all the characters of the Argeneau's I also enjoyed the confrontation with the murder crazy guy
I can listen to the Argeneau Vampires Family over and over again and because the story is lighthearted and fun to listen to I do not get tiered of it and enjoy it again and again
I might give another try and listen to book 3, but I just can't get into these series after "Nighthuntress" by Jeannine Frost. This book felt too cheesy and nothing exciting...
I love narration by Angela Dawe, it could she just grew on me after listening to Nalini Singh series. I don't like the narrators that exaggerate too much as the next narrator in book 3.
Great series. But they need to number the order. Hard to get them in the right order without the #s
All of this series is basically the same.
She had no inflections in her reading. It all ran together
