The plot was good. Narration was good. Too many characters dead and alive. I could not tell when the dead or live people were talking.
Was a awesome read looking forward to the second book and more can't get enough.
I look for humor, quirkiness, and a good series.
I am an avid listener to audio books - they accompany me on my daily hikes, working out at the gym, during my commute, and while I'm crafting. The Charley Davidson series is by far the best, of hundreds I've listened to. The reader, Lorelei King, brings the characters to life, and the story is quirky and interesting.
Charley is great, of course. She is kick-butt, funny, quirky, and never gives up. Her best friend is awesome; she reminds me of Flo, the gum snapping waitress in Alice. And Charley's uncle is sweet in his gruffness. Her love interest is mysterious and hot. These characters are all great, and have great promise.
Yes, I've listened to the Janet Evanovich novels, which she also does exceptionally well. In the Charley books, she does such a wonderful job of developing the characters, giving each a distinct voice. I've listened to all the books in the series, and she makes these characters feel like old friends.
Yes. Charley is so witty, creative, and with such a big heart, and the story sucks you in.
I live in ABQ, and it's so fun to hear a wonderful series based in ABQ. The only slightly annoying part is that the author does struggle a bit with the pronunciation of Spanish street names and towns. It's also amusing as you go through this series, because you can tell she's been schooled in her mistakes, and corrects pronunciation in future books.
These are some of the best characters I've come across. funny, charming and loveable! you can listen over and over. They dont get boring.
Loved this book snarky comments and all the sarcasm that Charlie could dish out. I wanted to face palm one minute and roll my eyes another minute, honestly it kept me entertained and I can't wait to listen to the other audiobooks in this series at first I was iffy about reading it because of the 1 star reviews but honestly those reviewers have no sense of humor and did not understand Charlie who acts snarky and sarcastic to protect herself
The concept is interesting, & I enjoyed the spunkiness of Charley.
This book is too heavy on the paranormal romance and thus light on the plot & story development. The endless drooling over the spawn of Satan becomes tiresome midway through, and by the last quarter of the book is wince inducing.
I enjoy urban fantasy, but in this book it is eclipsed by the "relationship" between Charley & SOS. My main reason for writing this review is to remind myself not to purchase any of the sequels.
