Intriguing, unexpected story line. Will catch your attention right away.
The whole story line from start to finish.
When Samanth and Fang ended their
Wasn't sure I would like this book but took a chance. I'm glad I did because I will be reading Book 2.
All and all Very intertaining
Nope, Just that if it was made into a movie or a series I would watch it!
To listen to a great book while I knit is heaven on earth.
This is my first vampire listen. Interesting premise ,the reader does a great job I felt the voices were perfect. Time flew by as I got caught up in the story.
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.
I listen in the car while i drive. I have eclectic tastes in books and if it interests me I listen till its over.
I felt as if the story was disconnected and the lore changed as the book went on. The characters were a bit narrow and not very well done.
I don't think I will.
The fact that she is living a somewhat normal life w/2 kids
No but she is very good
I enjoyed the book but would have loved some background. The book starts 6 years after the main character has been attacked and that is all we know. A little more detail on Who, what, when and where would have been nice.
My single biggest problem with this audiobook was the reader. For some reason, which I cannot fathom, she decided to use a sexy, sultry voice for the entire book. It didn't matter if she was picking her kids up from school, vomiting after eating a few ding-dongs, or discussing the attempted murder of a client, it was said with a sultry voice. This book was not sexy. It was not a romance. The sultriness of the reader's voice was so distracting that it bugged the heck out of me. Halfway through this very short book I decided I'd be better off abandoning the audio version and just reading the version I already had on my Kindle. The book was marginally better in print. Maybe I was just turned off to the book at this point, but I really wanted to like it. It got so many good reviews on Goodreads. While I could feel Samantha's pain over her family situation, that was about the only thing I could connect with in the story. Her budding feelings for her new love interest (and his for her) felt totally flat and unbelievable and the investigation was just "meh". There are too many better books out there. Skip this one but if you really feel an urge to read it, skip the audio and just stick to the print version. (Just a heads up, the sample up here is deceptive as I didn't detect the sultry cadence to her voice in it. That came a little further in.
The fact that it was a short full story I could fit in an afternoon!
Sam winning her boxing match!
No I haven't yet.
I was moved when Sam had to leave her kids
I really enjoyed this as a quick read, it was well written and I look forward to reading/listening to more of these stories!
Ok, so rarely do I actually write a review. I always "rate"a novel, nor, have I never ever felt so compelled to write a review when I'm barely half way through it.
This book has me so irritated that I want to scream! I now remember why I have yet to finish it (I purchased approximately a year ago?) Every other word is "I said", "she said" or "he said". It totally takes away from the flow of the story!!
It's maddening!! J. R., seriously seek out an Editor if you don't already have one!
The story has such good potential but I will probably not be finishing book 1, much less the series. How on earth this is quoted as being compared to Stephanie Plum or Sookie Stackhouse is a complete joke! Not even close in comparison to either!!
