The charecters grow on you, I cried, I just purchased all the other books in the serious and can't wait to read the rest!! The heroine is confused but strong with so MUCH potential if only she would let it out, and the Hero is sexy and confident and PATIENT,knows exactly how to cultivate that potential and he's passionate!!
Loved it! I couldn't wait for the second book so I purchased the series and finished book 1-4 in four days. With a busy two year old, school, and pt work that's not too bad! I can't wait for the second book to arrive on audible, I will purchase it in audio form even though I have now read the book twice. Great paranormal romance series with some kick butt action!
Loved it! Didn't wait for the audible version of book 2 went and purchased in on my kindle and am about to start book 3.
I was looking for something to scratch the itch that Karen Marie Moning's books leave and this seemed to be a great contender. I hate the heroine, two hours in, which is as far as I got. I am sad to see that she's not victimized by a raging vampire by the end of the book, given there are a number of other books in this series.
Kat is so awkward in her own body, it seems she should be 13 and not an adult. The blushing, the discomfort brought about every time a hint of sexuality whiffs by her, I was hard pressed not to see the overly done lip biting thing made so infamous by Bella and Anastasia in Twilight and Grey series.
...I can't even mention the HORRIFIC narration, particularly of the part of Bones. I was repeatedly smashed in the face and yanked out of any semblance of suspension of disbelief by the narration of this book. Coupled with the bulky, adverb riddled horror story of a novel, save your credits for something, ANYTHING else. That...or be ever thankful for Audible's return policy, as I am.
I loved this book!! I am completely addicted to Cat and Bones (I have listened to to the book - ahem, cough...cough - 5 times)! This story is a wonderful tribute to the genre. I cannot wait until the next book in the series comes out in audio format. I have read all of the books, so far; but now, I want to hear the rest of them. The narrator is excellent and definitely makes the book all the more entertaining. If I could give the audio book 10 stars, I would not hesitate to do so.... Enjoy!
Funny, sexy, exciting - with a Spike and a Buffy type relationship. A great fun vampire series. All the characters come alive - great fore shadowing. I have read all the books and am happy to say the audio books live up to the print.
And please keep the same narrator, Tavia does a wonderful job. I can not wait for more of this series. Hurry Audible, hurry!!
Take a look it's in a book...Reading Rainbow!
WooHoo!! I love it when I discover a series that is all out!!! I can not wait to dive into these. This is going to be delicious entertainment for the rest of the week.
Cat is a totally kick butt chick! She takes not crap from anybody! Love all her snark and sass. She is easily up there with all my favorite UF heroines. She has a hard road because of her family, but she does not let it get her down. It takes her a while to accept herself, thankfully she did not spend the time being uber-angsty.
Bones is totally delicious! I love a guy with an accent. He is also incredibly sweet, sure in a tough love kind of way. I am more than half in love with him. He can be a real jerk at times, but it all has a purpose, mostly to help Cat come to terms with herself. And he is has no mercy when it comes to her safety and well being, do not cross this guy!
They have a great dynamic and the whole book is beautifully paced. Such a great world that is detailed and well crafted. I can not wait to see more of this series. The romance is nicely done and felt real. There is a yummy amount of steam throughout. This is one of those UF books that verges on erotic, mainstream story with plenty of detail in the smexy scenes.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Tavia Gilbert, she does a fantastic job. She voices the characters with distinctive accents and makes the story flow. She makes Bones accent super delicious. She is definitely one to search out in the future.
Warning, this is not a HEA ending, but I have faith the series will get there, it damn sure better!! I was understandably upset at the end. I still loved the book and was thoroughly entertained. I am so happy a friend suggested I read this series. Yup, I am hooked and will beginning stalking, uh following Ms. Frost ASAP!!
I did not care for this book at all, I turned it off and will not be buying any of these books in this series,
I'm married with one daughter, just finished my BS in Health Science, and I'm a choosy fiction/romance/paranormal/anything spellbinding listener during my commute.
I've loved other novels by Jeaniene Frost, and Tavia Gilbert's narrations are fine (not bad, just not versatile, and has occasional odd inflections) but this one wasn't my favorite.
Please know that I still loved listening this this story, I was never bored, I just didn't have any burning desire to keep listening (or open this book again on my next visit to my phone's audible app ). Others may simply love this story, and looking back, I should have listened to it at 1.5x speed. The plot of this story was really interesting, and sounded awesome (tough half-breed girl takes down vampires, falls in love with her co-killer vampire, endless possibilities for them in their quest to squash evil, etc.), but either the stunted sentence flow, or the lack of big excitement, ranked this one lower than I expected.
Sorry guys! I know a lot of people loved this one- I fully admit that this was a fun story to listen to, but I wouldn't call it a favorite since I have no urge to ever listen to it again.
