I want to find books that flirt with and then seduce me. I want reads with lasting power, leaving me breathless and aching for more!
Charley is my new favorite female lead! This sassy Grim Reaper is on a mission to help the departed tie up loose ends and make their crossing. In the process she dishes out one liners and zingers that will keep you laughing out loud, rolling your eyes, and possibly even snorting coffee out your nose! Our heroine is instantly likable and her whit is unmatched in the genre (in my humble opinion). Throw in a mysterious entity, toe curling other-worldly seduction, and a mind-altering orgasm and you have it all. Looking forward to book two.
I just couldn't get into the flippant style
did a good job with what she had to work with
wasting my time
sorry that I wasted my credits on this trilogy
Yes- I listened to this book on a road trip and enjoyed it. It was entertaining and kept interested for most of the book.
Maybe - not a bad book, just not what I wanted.
I have not heard any of Lorelei's other performances.
It's an okay book that melded my like for the supernatural with interesting and strong female lead character. I wish I got more of the supernatural slant. Solving the mystery is an interesting journey, but I was really turned on by the grim reaper aspect of the story and I was left hanging in the end. I have a feeling that there will be more explanation of that in the next book - which I have not purchased yet - and I am not sure yet that I will.
One of my very favorites!!
"Dutch" is a combo between Buffy the Vampire slayer, Laurali Gilmor and Stephanie Plum and you get great erotic love scenes!! So much fun!!
Lorelei King is a great narrator, and I intend to find something more enjoyable read by her.
As for Darynda Jones, I'm not so sure. Her beginning was good, but she spent waaay too much time on what can only be described as soft porn scenes. Not particularly well-written soft porn. Oh, and a flashback to the character's youth that was confusing and annoying. Mid-way in, my partner turns to me and says, "Is this happening now?" "No, in the past." We didn't get through Chapter Four, which makes me sad because it's such an interesting concept. I've taken it off my iPhone so I can use the space for something we'll want to listen to.
Plus, we were on a car trip, and had to quickly turn it off so that my 13-year-old son didn't have to hear about... well, adult subject matter. Don't get me wrong, I don't think I qualify as a prude in any sense of the word, and I cheerfully steer around subjects that I don't want to read/listen to. Really Audible, where is the heads up? Boo, hiss.
The really sad thing is that I bought THREE OF THE TITLES IN THIS SERIES based on the sample I listened to. Previously, I've only bought books that I had read and knew that I would enjoy listening to.
Lesson learned. I will do a lot more reading of reviews before I buy a book.
The story was boring. The author seemed to select themes from other great mystery books and mash them all together. It didn't work. The story was boring and uneventful.
No, just to the author.
No character was my favorite but it wasn't her fault.
The story was like when you put too many ingredients in a soup.....
All of the elements separately are fine but when the author mixed them together it was chaotic and lacked any bite.
The author included crazy friends/relatives, ghosts that should have been funny, love interests (the erotica added in was just silly), and the 'powers' that the main character had were woven in throughout.
Nothing about this story made the reader care about the characters.
Initially disconcerted by reader, then got caught up in the story. Great concept
The growing romantic relationship
I like her voice, just associated her voice with other books
returned to this one quickly
Really enjoyed this book. The characters were well defined and the dialogue was fast paced and made me laugh out loud. Heard interview with author and she commented her main character was based loosely on Lorelei Gilmore from the Gilmore Girls and I could totally understand. Also love the narration!
I really loved the dialogue between the character's. It was never boring!
The main character is too funny! Charlie's dealing with her stepmother is quite unforgetable.
You can tell that Lorelei likes the characters in this book, it comes across in her telling.
yes, had to listen during the commute to work, at lunch, while making dinner and made me lose sleep, it is laugh out loud in the car funny!
I'd listen to it again. want to get the others.
I like the way Lorelei King reads. fun characters that she brings to life.
