I've read all the series, really enjoying them. However, I almost put this one down and walked away. It seemed to drag on and on, with stupid dialogue, that I just couldn't get interested in.. I decided to keep listening, after all I used a credit, and by the second half of the book, it seemed to pick up and have a bit of plot to it. By, the end of the book, seems that the series has ended also, which might be a good thing, since this book just didn't make the grade. This book is a kick-off to her new series, so I don't know if I'll try it or not, after listening to this one. At any rate, if you want to go to the new series, you will want to listen to this book, or if you want to see what could have been the possible end to this series, you'll again have to listen to this book. It is better, once you get past the first half.
Paris is awesome
Paris, he finally got his happily ever after.
Everything, I love his voice
Made me laugh and cry, but that's all of Gena's books.
Gena is a great writer.
It is obvious that the series continues past this book but this story really felt like culmination, several story lines are finalized. For the time being anyway. I have really struggled with liking Paris and Sienna in previous books, and even in the beginning of this one, but their story is really very sweet and incredibly well written. There is plenty of action in this book, in more ways than one. I felt very engaged for the whole story, my interest never wandered. I can't wait for the next installment. I am puzzled by some of the lower ratings and less than glowing reviews, I couldn't feel more differently.
Max Bellmore did a wonderful job in this book, as he does for the entire series.
I believe in true love, happily ever after, magic, and laughter. But mostly I believe in coffee.
I've been waiting to read Paris' story for a long time.
I wasn't sure about Max Bellmore at first but the more I listened the more I felt he became the characters. I will gladly listen to anything he narrates.
Max Ballmore is wonderful at doing the characters and bringing them to life, the emotions as well
Yes he is one of my favorite narrators.
It is an erotic para normal novel series, and this is the first book of the series. I like urban fantasy, and this covers it pretty good. The erotica also is pretty heavy so if you're not looking for that then pass this series by. It will only get more intense as each book progresses. I did enjoy the story and have continued through the entire series.Also there is some very intense and graphic depictions of torture. Each book has something along those lines. After all were dealing with demons.
Say something about yourself!
This book was much easier to put down than any of the others. It wasn't bad, but it definitely wasn't up to par compared to the rest. Most of the previous books, I listened to as straight through as I could. With this one, I've gone days without listening to it and with no real urge to hurry and get back to it.
I'm still looking forward to the next in the series and hope that the storyline goes back to being as good as it has been.
Believer in what you can't see
I loved the development of Senna and Paris's reliationship. It was nice how much Paris loves Senna. He was so thoughtful and kind to Senna. It was so sweet.
The most memorable moments is when Paris and Senna realize that they can be together forever.
Great narrator. Definitely made the story. I like that he can do both female and male voices that are believable. Bellmore is definitely one reason to listen to this story.
Yes, but there is so much going on with this story that it would be an injustice to try and cram the whole story into one sitting.
I've read most of the books in this series, but Bellmore makes the story come to life. He also makes it easy to hear the book over and over again.
It's in the mid range for me because I like the series but this book seemed built up from the previous titles only to let you down a little with a few confusing turns and twists that weren't really necessary. A very good plot only to not live up to its potential.
I like Showalter and would probably "read" another book by her an audio isn't worth my time and money.
Max had a range of voices and the tones/inflections were different than what I would have imagined myself.

this book was really everything i hoped it would be. this series is so much fun you really should try it. you need to try it from the beginning. each book focuses on one couple's romance but there is a back story and building of other characters if you were to just pick this one up and read it you'd be lost. the romance is steamy, there is wit and fast paced action. the story is good and although there are things from each book that repeat there is enough to make them unique and keep me thouroughly entertained! This one had some twists i totally didn't see coming and i loved it!

Being a fan of the Lord's of the Underworld, when I saw that Gena had released her latest installment, I could not get it in my cart and onto my iPod quick enough! I had plans for my credits (to help me finish out a different series) but those plans were quickly tossed aside - I could not wait to hear Paris' story!
If you have not been following LOTU then you need to start with the first book and work your way to this point - you will NOT be disappointed. Each book features a demon possessed Lord through their inner struggles with their demon, their trials, and how they might find someone to love...
We have been seeing tidbits of Paris' story through the last few books. I sat on the end of my seat wondering when we would get the full picture and hoping the next book would be about him. With that finally happening, I was not disappointed in the least!
The story is filled with ups and downs, steamy love scenes (how can there not be with Paris' demon being "Sex"!), and a peek into new characters' lives. Even though there are steamy scenes, this book does have great content. I hung on every word and every scene - even the ones not involving Paris' and his woman. And at the end of the book I was wishing that I had another to listen to straight away.
As for performance, Max Bellmore is amazing (as usual!). He is brings the characters to life, as any true voice actor should, which helps to paint the best picture in my mind's eye as to what is happening. I would probably listen to anything he read!
Huge thumbs up to Gena and Max!
