THE NARRATOR DID A VERY POOR JOB AND WHEN IT IS AN AUDIO BOOK IT WILL COMPLETELY EFFECT THE OVERALL STORY.
SO MUCH OF THE STORY WAS PLACED IN THE KITCHEN OR THE BEDROOM. NOT ENOUGH ACTION.
IM AFRAID THAT I DONT KNOW HER NAME BUT SHE DID THE NARRATIVE FOR THEA HARRISONS DRAGON BOUND SERIES. SHE DID BOTH MALE AND FEMALE CHARACTERS WELL PLUS THE SECONDARY CHARACTERS WERE DONE WITH EASILY HEARD VOCAL DIFFERENCES. TAVIAS VOICE WAS TO YOUNG SOUNDING AND OVER THE TOP DRAMATIC AND AT TIMES COULDNT DECIDED IF ALLY WAS HAVE SEX WITH CALEB OR ONE OF HIS BROTHERS THEY ALL SOUNDED THE SAME VOCALLY..
DISAPPOINTMENT! HAVING SAID THAT I SUPPRISED MYSELF BY BUYING
BECAUSE I BELIEVE THAT THE NARRATION WAS MOST OF THE PROBLEM I HAVE DECIDED TO BUY THE BOOK TO READ. IF IM GOING TO RUN MY MOUTH , AND TRULY BELIEVE THE PROBLEM WAS IN THE NARRATOR I SOULD BE FAIR AND READ THE BOOK.
Hot, determined. HOT!!
Ally, because women of today are really no different from the women who settled the frontier. Hard, tough,busy and ready to make a life with their man in the field all day, and in his arms all night.
She finds the center of the characters,and makes them a part of reality.. Only a women can really come off masculine. Men, can't think like a women let alone portray one with any re conviction. Brava to Ms. Gilbert.
When Ally over heard all the men talking about her being pregnant. And when a hard ass like Caleb melted inside when he felt it's flutter.
We all should give up a bit of ourselves for love, some of us change with no counter effort from our mate, it is a real man who realizes the changes made them and their happiness.. Loving 100 years ago had to be easier, smoother, and less chaotic then what deal with now adays.
Different Narrator and better story line. The Book jumped all over the place I had to keep checking as I thought I had accidentally forwarded the chapters. I just read th nighthuntress series and was looking for something similar...Thi was not it. I wish Icould get my money back
Write a more cohessive story
I like the narrator in another series she has read but in this one her male voices and country accents are ridiculous
Dont even bother starting ths series.
Well it was steamy alright!
The story is interesting, and made me wonder what is going to happen in the next books!
She did a great job! It took me a little while to get used to her
I just thought that the main character was a little annoying, she was very whiny and not the strong female lead that I ususally read. But I know that that is just my preference and not anything against the author.
Those are the words I said throughout this whole book. A cowboy vampire that is not sexy because every other word is
Nope, I've been a fan for too long now!
The narrator is only as good as the writing. Ms. Gilbert had no chance to make this one a good read, in my opinion.
All of the damsel in distress that then turned into the damsel as the hero scenes.
I think I've said enough!
Addicted to Audio Books !
I have to say this book was not good or bad. It is a laugh out loud kind of book, What I was laughing at wasnt funny scenes, just from how crazy the story was. Even though it was a bit more than I am used to listening too, I was able to finish this book and I also ordered the rest of the series. So for me to purchase the rest of the series tells me I must have found something I liked about it. I guess I enjoy craziness.
I'm a librarian, knitter, crochetter... I love audiobooks because I can knit and "read" at the same time.
I have read all the the other books from Sarah McCarty, but I don't know why I passed this series by...
Well, I begun to read it now and I don't want to stop it...
I love the Hell's Eight series and the Promises series (she stopped this one and never was released in audio).
You can feel that she gets stuck sometimes in nonsense, but overall is great paranormal/erotica/historical/romance.
It is fun!
Patience beyond belief
The heroine needs to be about 100% less argumentative, 100% smarter, and 50% less whining and annoying. How do you argue with beings 200+ years old when you are 20 something? Seems like they know a thing or two or three? She was beyond annoying and stupid at times.
Love Tavia Gilbert. The Jeaniene Frost series seals the deal. She gets is right every time.
I didn't laugh or cry, just got annoyed by the utter stupidty of the heroine.
I still see promise in the series and look forward to reading the others. The overall storyline remains intriguing.
I wish I could add to my comments of the first books I read. Did'nt realize how important It would be now. Did'nt really know how to review
I love Sarah McCarty stories like Caine's reckoning, ( my favorite I recommend this series)Sam's Creed #2 and Tucker's claim. This is the Hell's Eight Series about sexy Texas rangers. Love all 3 books. This story line is about a girl , vampires and a family of wolves. Where have we heard this before. Allie's character was supposed to be quick witted and sexy, but she just came off silly to me. There were some good love scene's, but I kept trying to compare this book with the Twilight series and it does not measure up at all.
Tavia Gilbert did a good job. The voice for Caleb sounded a bit too old, but that was my only complaint about the performance. The story however was seriously lacking.
This was the first thing of Sarah McCarty's I read and I'm leery of trying anything else of hers. I don't mind indulgent paranormal romance stuff, but this was a struggle to finish. There were good moments, but the transitions were lacking and it all seemed very choppy. I had to keep checking and rewinding the audio book because I thought it was skipping around and that I'd missed something. Nope, that's just how it was written. Decent action, though hard to follow at times. A potentially interesting plot, but it fell flat in the hands of the author. Some scenes seemed dragged on while others seemed to be unnecessarily rushed. Definitely too much pointless sex; it just seemed to be thrown in there at frequent and random moments and didn't develop the plot or the relationship between the characters. Plus it was honestly kinda boring.
And the character development of the heroine, Allie, was just bad. She started off interesting, but devolved into a whiny, overly needy and uninteresting person. I hope things end well for these folks; I definitely will NOT be reading the rest of the series to find out.
