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.
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of red and the sun. That's heaven.
Sarah McCarty writes a great book, as I'm now a fan who purchased my second book by her. Tavia Gilbert is my favorite narrator putting passion and excitement top notch as always!
The narration of the story is great. The herion starts out courageous and brave, but soon turns whiny! When living in a world you know nothing about, one should listen, but of course she doesn't and that almost gets the hero of the story killed. The story dragged on and the sex is over kill. I hope books 2 and 3 are better.
..didnt know what to expect after reading some of the poor reviews ..but loving the Hell's Eight series so much I had to start this series ..so Happy ...I enjoyed it beginning to end!!! ..cant wait to start book 2. ..cant believe there was bad reviews? loved it!!!
I've read (well listened to) all the Hells Eight books from this author and I absolutely loved them. After reading some of these reviews I had a little resistance, but I really loved this book and can't wait to read the next one.
didn't read print version but then again i don't like to read the book. i prefer audio any day of the week. i find the characters come alive for.
caleb's character is strong but when he gets together with his mate, you can see his side but i like that his dominance as mate and the head of the family is stronger.
when caleb is held prisioner in the lab and is fighting off the bad guys and his mate is calling jared but he doesn't come and calebs mate attacks vincent.
when calebs brothers and friend tell him, they want his wife.
I have read several other Sarah McCarty books and thought this would be as good. I am utterly disappointed. The characters are flat. The story is difficult to follow. The female lead is annoying. Even the sex is a let down. I never thought sex could be so boring. I just wanted them all to walk into the sun and end my misery. I am a paranormal romance fan but this I could not stomach. The rest of the series will have to go on without me.
I have been waiting for the Wrangler Series and Audible came through!! Love the story and narrator fantastic. Can't wait for the other stories in the series
Now....I like a sensual love story like to next person, but this story is ridiculous
I won't buy
too much sex.
Anger, Disappointment. Very much so
I hope the author writes no more books.
Like the romance, but love the action involved to get there!
First off Mrs. Gilbert...you did with it what you could! I have tried 4 times now to listen to this book...I just CAN'T! I'm not particularly into cowboys...but I do like vampires...I was hoping for a new vampire world to jump into what I got was just stupid with some sex thrown in. The hero of the story is alpha male one minute, leader of his brothers...and the next he is a simpering male who regrets turning his brothers, and would have not gone after the woman he wanted because...well because he was a big wuss is why!
So, if you are looking for a hot sexy book where the main characters don't even know why they are having sex and there is not really a plot...just a lot of confusion then look no further! If you want a book you can actually enjoy and get into a series go somewhere else...try Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR ward, or the Midnight Breed Series by Lara Adrian for your vampire action series!
