The book captured your interest from the beginning.
I never have enough time for an all-in-one-sitting read/listen, but it could capture your interest for that period of time.
Engaging and interesting paranormal story. Great character development and just a fun read. One of the tests of this type of story is when an author can have romantic interests that are hot without having to get too graphic with sex scenes. That takes much more talent and story telling capabilities. After all, we are adults and know what goes on behind closed doors.
By the way, purchased this as an e-book for my Kindle and then the Audible version for Whispersync. This feature is fantastic. I can listen to the audible version when commuting in my car or working around my house, but can switch back and forth to enjoy on my Kindle anytime, anywhere, and enjoy a nice quiet read.
Title: "Haunted on Bourbon Street"
Written by: Deanna Chase
Narrated by: Traci Odom
Format: audiobook via audible.com
My rating: 4/5 stars
Four SOLID/5 stars! I almost dropped that fifth one as I reeeeally liked this story! I may have liked it even more had I read it & not listened to it, but I'm not sure.
The narrator was adequate, but I found myself needing to rewind & re-listen many times throughout; I have found that's often due to my mind wandering & not feeling engaged while listening. Sadly & whether it's appropriate or not: I pin that on the poor narrator! (Apologies! No offense intended!).
I adore almost anything paranormal & this was definitely such! I do have to admit to getting irritated with "main characters" when they're ignoring/fighting their "gift" &/or keeping it a secret from an important friend, family member, significant other, etc., but not enough as to ruin the story for me.
Regardless, I'll definitely give book two a go, but I'm not sure which format I'll try next time.
No spoilers, just my rambling thoughts! 😉
Thanks for stopping by & enjoy, fellow reader!
The writing was disjointed ad there were poor transitions from location to location and time frame to time frame. The premise of the book had potential but sadly fell extremely short. It is a poor combination of paranormal mixed with a romance novel listing towards soft porn. The writer needs to find her genre.
Engaging; alluring; sexy
Jade, definitely! She was a complex, yet realistic character.
Her voice was easy to listen to and her representation of the characters were terrific.
Neither, but it was entertaining.
i love the Jade Calhoun series I have read them in kindle now getting to listen to the, in audible just brings the characters to life so much more great story quirky fun characters and the narrator is awesome worth a listen can't wait to listen to more.
Useless trash pornography. Just one more closet pervert with wistful dreams of the supernatural coming to spice up their pathetic love life grabbing a word processor and instead of writing a catty supernatural trash porno, landed on plot.com and managed to hold a semblance of a story in between gratuitous porn. I'd have visited the erotica section had I wanted to read this crap.
Magic, ghosts, sexiness
Could compare it to any of the Jolie books from HP Mallory.
I did enjoy the book and Traci did a great job narrating. I gave it a go even with some of the other reviews were on the bad and I'm glad I did.
I really enjoyed this book! It kept me interested from beginning to end! The concept of the book was interesting to me. I've always enjoyed paranormal romance, but funny enough I've never read one that took place in New Orleans! I could really seeing this take place there. Jade was sassy and strong in some ways, but sweet and vulnerable in other ways. I was mad at her for about half the book, but she redeemed herself in the end! Kane had his own asshat moments, but his determination in the end won me over!
I was a little confused by Dan and Jade's relationship and I did hope that it would be explained a little more before the book ended, but it kind of was just swept under the rug. Why did he hate her so much? I also hoped for a little more explanation about the different gifts everyone had and how they came to have them. That being said, this was still a great book and a good start to a series! Can't wait to read the next one!
Traci Odom did a pretty decent job narrating the book. The accents seemed pretty accurate, but her male voices could have used a little work! I would still listen to other books by her, but I wouldn't seek her out!
