i loved listening to it while at work
carrying away of the ups man
made me laugh at times
Yes. I liked the author's fresh approach and imaginative employment of a vampire's abilities together with some of the drawbacks. Just how would you cope with being a single parent of a non-vampire child in this situation?
The leap from a tall building was a suspenseful moment.
This is one top-class reader. She copes with the author's eccentric grammar without missing a beat, and conveys the emotions of the characters impeccably. I'd enjoy listening to her again.
It's a possibility, after all, 'Moonlight' was a very entertaining series.
I'll be interested in seeing this writer develop.
Books have replaced TV in my life.
Nothing close the the Outlander series - but then it was good enough that I had to quickly finish the series. It was a great find from the sale to try out a first book in a series, This is one probably would not stopped to view.
All the way through I had to find out what happens to this wife and mother - trying to keep up with her daily schedule - after being turned into a vampire.
All the way through I had to find out what happens to this wife and mother - trying to keep up with her daily schedule - after being turned into a vampire. And I must say very much liked her client - the large attorney.
Yes - but then as quickly as it was finished I went to Amazon and downloaded the rest of the series to my Kindle.
I cannot wait for the next book.

If you are looking for an exciting Vampire Series, this one is very entertaining. I enjoyed them all. The narrator did a great job.
A married vampire with kids. Talk about your really screwed up relationships. However she's a good mom, and really tries. The story is really an interesting one and this is just book one of a series. I really did enjoy the story and narration by Dina Pearlman. Not that long of a listen, but it keeps moving. I'm going to try the next book in the series to see if J.R. Rain can keep up the interest and mystery.
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
I haven't read the print version of Moon Dance, but I don't see how it could be better than the audio version. The narrator in the audio version has the opportunity to flush out the plot, the characters and the heart aching situations that arrive better than to just see it in print.
The wife, through no fault of her own became a vampire and her husband began to judge her and pull away, despite how much she tried to maintain an attitude of a normal marraige.
I haven't listened to Dina Pealman prior to this performance, but felt she lent an extraordinary flavor to an other than ordinary occurance to a normal working woman.
Reader. Painter. Newspaper columnist. Nurse. Humane Society. Lake life. Walker. Happily remarried - was a widow.
Good fast paced story. Depth in the form of character and plot development. Fun to listen to and held my attention. Minimal romance/sex, which is sometimes refreshing after the gratuitous and repetitive bodice ripping descriptions in other urban fantasy. Is also consistent with the story line. This woman was so embroiled trying to adjust to her life change that she didn't have time for a hot romance. Realistic situations within the context of accepting that vampires exist. I didn't expect much and was pleasantly surprised. I have gotten the subsequent books. I like this series.
I really enjoy this series. I can listen and put my world and troubles on hold for little while.
I normally read more mystery style vampire books, like Molly Harper or Tate Hallaway but I got hooked on J.R.Rain's Vampire for Hire series from the start. I had to have them all and read to the end. After reading the first book I had to go look up the author to see if it was a man or a woman because he does Samantha Moon's first person point of view so well. Sure there are the tell tale clues that he's a man once you get into it, but still it was throughly enjoyable.
Why I didn't buy them all at one time, "I don't know". Lol, he must say that a thousand times but I found myself rather than being annoyed being tickled when in a later book he changed it to "I JUST didn't know". It's his style, it's Sam's voice. I'm okay with that.
His keeps you guessing at the end of each book. Definitely read them in order and pick up the short stories as well.
Dina Pearlman actually acts the part of Sam in this book. It's very well done. I've heard her before but never quite this good. I've found too that sometimes the book dictates how the narrator reads and it's not their fault if they sound different. On another audible book, I moved my ipod to a faster read and that fixed the problem with the slow narration.
If you like private eyes, a different vampire world, or just a plain good read, try the Vampire for Hire series.
