Though I still like Darkest Night the most, this one is the very nearby second. I love the side stories, really make you look forward to the stories that Ms Showalter has in plan for the series. Mr. Bellmore does a great job reading this book and I think he's gotten better book after book. I would recommend this book to anybody. I would recommend that you read the series in their order, and read all the novellas that are related as well. Ms Showalter! I wish I have your imagination!
O Day of days when we can read! The reader and the book, either without the other is naught. Ralph Waldo Emerson. I Love to read, a great time for me is curling up with a great book!!!
I really enjoyed the first few of her books but they are so similar you feel like once you read one, you've read all the rest
I have to start out by saying that I love Gena Showalter's books and I have all of them in print. When I read this book it was not one of my favorites of this series, but I ordered the audio book anyway because I wanted to have them all in audio. I was truly surprised because I enjoyed listening to the book way better than I enjoyed reading the book and this is not usually the case for me. Max Bellmore brought the characters to life for me in a way that the written pages didn't. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys paranormal romance.
I've listened to all of the Lords series released so far and I was looking forward to this book. I'm very disappointed. First, I found the book hard to follow. The narrator's voices are hard to distinguish and many times, I found myself wondering which character was talking and if the words were meant to be verbalized or just thoughts in characters head. I don't remember being confused by this in the other books. I also do not like Olivia at all. I don't believe her character. She went from angel to complete slut in the blink of an eye. I wish the author had handled Olivia's sexual awakening a little more innocently, with more exploration and build up to the (pardon my pun) climax. I don't like Aeron and Olivia as a couple, I don't believe in their "love match", which makes the explicit sex scenes kind of gross. I'm not a prude, I like steamy sex scenes, but I always want to believe that the underlying emotion to all the hot throbbing need is true love. I don't believe that where Aeron and Olivia are concerned so it sort of ruined the intimate scenes for me and I found myself fast forwarding to get past them. I'm hoping this book was just a random miss where Showalter is concerned and the next book in the series will be back on the mark. If not I'm afraid this is another series I will have to discontinue.
Intense, romantic, funny, and full of action, this installment of LOTU was such a pleasure to listen to. Is it possible that a series can be perfect? :-) I'm SO into these warrior Lords AND their women! Showalter has created an awesome world that will totally envelope you. If you love paranormal romance this is a must have in your library. Definitely worth any credits; its best if you start from the beginning with the Darkest Night because you can appreciate how the characters develop over time and all the events that occur. I loved this one to pieces, and I can't gush about it enough! Get it!
I must say that I did not like this book. All the climaxing going on in this book and the ending was highly anti-climactic. I was listening to the book on the subway and I was embarrassed. LOL but it wasn't sexy just sex and some of the lines the characters said were so corny. And I found myself hoping it would hurry up and get to the point. I don't like writing bad reviews but this was just bad I'm sorry to say.
