PNR is my prefered genre, but I also enjoy any lighthearted, funny, steamy stories. Listening to books helps me to do mindless housework.
If you get a good narrator, I really enjoy audiobooks, listening to audiobooks helps me to keep my mind off of unpleasent tasks (like dishes, laundry, etc). I haven't read the print version though.
There were a couple, their first shared dream (yummy), when Carol is drunk and Gia dresses her up in a too small dress (funny), and a big reveal at the end.
Kirby was better in his delivery in this book than the last one. I think his charater voices are awesome!
Her books always make me laugh, swoon, dream.
Well, I love that Carol is a middle-aged woman (like me!) I can relate to her age-related insecurities!
This story got me thinking how would it be if an immortal found a mortal lifemate that was oh, say 400 lbs? I think that would make for an interesting story!
I do not just want to read books; i wish i could climb in and live there.
Audacious, Seductive and Kindred.....
I can't compare this one. I liked Carolyn - she has missed out on some much and had an awful relationship and along comes Christian everything she likes in a guy and GAY!!!!!! not... Its a fun little adventure with a turn at the end.... :D
I had a few ....The scenes with Captain Jack are funny and you can just imagine the steam coming out of Christian's ears... :-)) He's a good guy as you will see...
The dream scenes are great.... When Christian speaks to Caro in Italian
The family discussing good kissers and bad kissers ....funny :-))
Caro finally working out Christian loves her for her !!!!
Yes I smiled and laughed a little..... I loved the whole hypothetical gay band boy thing - very cute !!!.
The family bond was strong and I like that in a series it make you feel you are a part of the book.
Good read or listen ...I wanted more in the end and listened to this in 2 days.
Hope you keep using Kirby Heyborne as a narrator he's great! I like his interpretation of everyone in this book - his Lucian is a little grumpy :-)) not in this book though....
I would definitely recommend this book. It is laugh out loud funny and also requires tissues at times. It was narrated wonderfully & though I don't like how they keep changing the narrators in this series, at least they picked a good narrator for this book.
I think I like the humorous situations that both Christian & Caro kept finding themselves in the best about this story. Humor is something I enjoy. And when a book makes me laugh out loud, it's always a winner!
Kirby seems to have a great sense of comedic timing as well as an emotional presence that keeps the listener in the palm of his hand and makes them feel every emotion that was written into the book. I enjoyed his performance immensely!
I both laughed and cried… Of course I did when I read it the first time the old-fashioned way, which should tell you how good this book is because even though I knew what was going to happen, I still laughed out loud and required tissues for my tears.
The overall story was okay but I couldn't get over the fact that Christian and Carolyn's relationship was all based on lies. Saying he was gay so he could get close was deceiving, although he never once himself said he was gay. I wouldn't have appreciated that happening to me. Also, for an Italian, Christian had not one hint of an accent which was frustrating. And the end seemed rushed. Carolyn accepted everything without question after completely panicking and freaking out when she saw the other feeding. All she could think about when Christian was trying to explain things to her was how badly she wanted to sleep with him. Not my favorite book but it wasn't bad. I'm glad it's over though.
I enjoy historical, paranormal, and contemporary romance. Also steampunk, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, and fiction. I'm open to about anything
Setting: St. Lucia, contemporary
Genre: romance, paranormal/sci-fi
Errrm.... Poor Christian. He didn't get a good story at all. Marguerite Argeneau Notte meets Carolyn Connor at the resort where she and her husband, Julius are honeymooning. Marguerite recognizes that Carolyn is the life mate of her son Christian, so she arranges for him and his cousins to be the replacement band when the contracted band can't play. Carolyn is a 40 something soon-to-be divorced woman who is embarrassed by her attraction to Christian, who appears to be in his 20's. She tries to avoid him until his cousin tells her that Christian is gay and needs a "girlfriend" to hide his preference from the rest of his family. This will allow Carolyn to get to know him in a non threatening environment. Carolyn's most-used vocal response to anything directed at her is "errm" which makes her come across as intellectually challenged as well as socially inept. Truly, the witty dialogue is on holiday in this book. The whole story revolves around the guy getting the girl. There is no apparent sub-plot to provide tension, though at the end there is a disclosure that seemed to be apropos of nothing, because there were no clues that something was going on. The whole book is pretty flat. Even the critical revelation is "eh" . So I'm really disappointed for Christian and sorry I used a credit for this.
The narration of this book was at the high end of average, and better than most of the narrators for the other books in the series.
The story was good but the narration was a bit disappointing. The voices of the characters weren't bad but Mr. Heyborne's narration in general was very deadpan and monotone. This one I preferred to read myself. Listened to it in the car on a long journey though and it still entertained me.
Ok I just loved this book its the only one in this series that I have read so far. I loved that the female character in this was in her 40's instead of the usual teens, early twenties which normally these books are like. Carolyn is so hilarious, she thinks Christian is gay and that she is playing his "Beard" because he doesn't want his family to know that he is gay which he isn't but she is so hung up on her age that it was the only way to get close to her. I laughed so hard on parts of this. I will definitely be reading more of these.
The super slow drawl of the male narrator is excruciatingly painful to listen to. The main characters are females and I may have enjoyed the book with a female narrator, but this was impossible to listen to.
The narrator did an excellent job with a very thin, weak story. The writing was adolescent, characters were somewhat developed but the author totally missed the mark on the story line.
I did not finish this book. I became weary waiting for the obvious. Vampire loves girl, girl finds out he's a vampire, girl decides she wants to be a vampire, girl decides she loves vampire... Nothing new or exciting. Don't waste a credit. Sorry to those of you who enjoyed this book.
