Typical romance story with a predictable plot/storyline.
- Girl meets boy
- Instant sexual attraction
- Both have issues to overcome
- Passion builds
- Hot and steamy sex scenes
- Love follows
- Love finds a way.
Replace boy meets girl with Werewolf meets Valkyrie/Vampire and there you have it.
an adolescent boy! Or have crushes on them! The girl is a weak victim, the boy is a controlling bully/ abuser and they hate each other but are fated to be together and they have CHEMISTRY so the sex is good.
I'm kinda sorry I bought this one. I usually like fantasy and this writer gets so many stars so I thought it was a sure bet.
I enjoyed the sisters of the main character. They were like comic relief. The story could get intense at times.
I think the title says it all. Look what he did to his leg to get to her.
The narrator is the most memorable from the a hunger like no other. I think I could just listen to his voice all day and night. He brings the book alive in a way never would have thought.
The different accents and the characters came alive in a way that reading doesn't quite do. Don't get me wrong, I love reading books and imagining them in my mind. But Robert Petkoff just does int better
During the first half of this audio I almost gave up on it. The situation between the two main characters becomes very repetitive. However I am pleased I stayed with it as the second half was very good. I have never listened to or read a supernatural type book before so I am now interested but not sold. Mr Petkoff has the most amazing voice. Incredibly good interpretation of a sexy Scottish brogue, but I am afraid Emma did sound mostly like a man trying to be a woman (Mrs Doubtfire the movie kept coming to mind) but other than that I so enjoyed listening to Robert and would listen to him anytime....particularly if playing a Scotsman!!
Believer in what you can't see
Yes I would listen to this audiobook again. The story was a journey for both Emmaline and Lachlain. Through her struggle with Lachlain, Emmaline found her strength to not only stand up to him, but find her place among the Valkyrie and finds out what she is capable of.
When Lachlain realizes that Emmaline is nothing like the vampires that torture him for 150 years and that she was a caring being that was also loving.
Yes, I listen to this narrator before, but I like all of his performances so I there I don't have a comparison between stories.
Emmaline finds her strength.
I enjoyed this series, but the beginning is better than the later stories. I really like the feisty Valkyrie and Nix, but we lose them in the later stories.
Kresley Cole is a fine author. The story is very well written and so entertaining. Using Robert Petkoff as the narrator truly brought every character to life. So enthralling. Five words... I want more, more, more!
I'm not going to give anything away. Let's just say, you won't be disappointed.
Yes and what a performer he is... always!
Several... however, this series touches on many different emotions.
Kresley Cole, please keep writing and always team up with Robert Petkoff!
All the kresley cole books and audio are simply the best!
Black dagger brotherhood....lords of the underworld........so good
Very real...like he is the character! No one is better...I wish he did the brotherhood books..
I just was looking for a quick book to satisfy my boredom...But I stayed up all night anxious to finish! it was really good. Sexy, possessive, and gripping.
Yes, for the narration! I've since listened to the other books in this series (ALL of which I prefer to this first story) but I was willing to put up with formula-based plotline because the narrator, Robert Petkoff, rocked my world. Like no joke.
Yes, with the understanding that it's the least good of the series, but worth wading through for hearing Lachlan's voice.
Nothing stood out - I was mostly overwhelmed but HAWT narration.
I was totally inspired to marathon listen to the other books in the series. They get a lot better so easily worth listening to this one.
To paraphrase another review, have lots of fresh panties on hand! You will need them!
