I really liked the story and hope that the rest of the series comes out on Audible very soon!!!
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
The story was ok but I struggled to fully enjoy the Narration by Kevin Foley. His female voices were not good but i did like his deep Low voice for Samson. There were lot's of sex scenes but i couldn't connect with them. Kevin's voice just didn't make them exciting enough. I'm not sure if i will continue with the rest of this series. This book just didn't quite grab my full attention, i skipped a couple of chapters with no problems catching up on the story. Not a good sign for me.
OK, the first 30 seconds almost killed it for me, but I gave the story a chance, and I ended up actually liking it. The narrator's voice is SO Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom, that it made me laugh during sex scenes when (in my warped mind) whatever he was saying became something like, "The strength of the cheetah's sinewy thighs are proven essential when it's time to mount his mate ...." The female voice he does is what a guy making fun of women might sound like. In fairness, I blame the publisher, not Mr. Foley, for this mess. He has a great voice, just not for this type of book. I have no doubt that he is FABULOUS in more of a documentary or educational type of book and I sincerely hope that this was his one experiment with female voices and romance and that he has decided against doing so again.....EVER
In spite of that, if you see it on sale, the story itself is actually is an interesting one. I even found myself listening a second time, but I can understand those who gave up early. In cases like these, I try to pretend a well-meaning relative is reading at my sick bed and run the narration through my the-way-it should-sound filter and deal.
Sorry to say it is not worth a credit unless re-recorded with a new reader, but I kind of hope they do just that and release the next books in this Scanguards series because I'd like to know what happens next.
No idea. There are some very enjoyable vampire/ mortal books. Some are humorous, some are hot, some are suspenseful. This has none of those elements.
The narrator brought no life to the characters & was dreadful with female characters
Say something about yourself!
Narrated by Kevin Foley I liked his voice but he was so ho hum when reading the book. I didn't feel anything from his reading. In the action or in the love making part. And I have read other books on this subject that made it feel real. But this one was to low key. Maybe in a couple years I will listen to it again.

The story was interesting, but the intimate scenes made me roll my eyes over the choice of language on more than one occasion. I couldn't take the scene seriously and found myself laughing a good bit of the time.
Unknown at this point in time.
The narration was fine for most of the scenes, but I had trouble letting go completely into the story when the narrator performed the woman's voice. It took me out of the story completely, though I imagine his voice would be perfect for other books. The variation of male characters was fantastic.
Though there were a lot of characters, not one of them seemed out of place.
Believer in what you can't see
I like the plot and how the two main characters come together. Even though the plot is typical the discription of the characters are nice together.
Samson, just when he thought he wouldn't fall in love. The love of his life literally falls into his lap.
NO, the narration seemed all off. The narrator didn't sound like he was into the story he was telling. The woman were a little flat.
It already has a follow up book. If they put the next book in audio form it would be better with another narrator.
Good series, for those out there with grownup taste.
funny romantic straight-forward
Samson's friends. You were able to get little glimpses into them as people and it made it for a much stronger set of secondary characters.
Ricky - I loved the way that Kevin Foley did his accent. It was always very distinctive and humorous. He had great lines.
love it so much that I get both book and anible, cant went for the rest in the series.
