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.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
Yes, it was good.
I enjoyed it even if its predictable. I'll be willing to try others because it kept my attention.
I would not use a credit, but I got it cheap, so I won't complain. It didn't sweep me away but it was interesting. For a light, predictable listen at a good price you can't beat it.
I counted on the reviews for this one and I've got to say either my standards are extremely high or others are extremely low. The story line lacked UMPH ! and comments throughout the story made by Delilah were corny and juvenile.
Well, I have downloaded the second book and did this before I listened to the first one as it was a $4.95 purchase, but don't know if I can put myself through that again.
There are a number of male narrators that would have done a much better job, i.e., Robert Petkoff, Dick Hill, Max Bellmore, Kaleo Griffith . KF just did not have what it took to make listening a good experience. Even when the story emphasized "a sultry voice" there was no change in KF's inflection.
No change in male voices, female voice sounded like a man trying really hard not to make fun of the female voice, no emphasis when the voice called for anger, rage, lust, etc.
Yes, it is really too bad that whoever puts a narrator to a novel doesn't take into consideration that the narrator really holds most of the cards when it comes to listening a particular book. For me, the narrator is almost more important than the storyline. I can get through a mediocre book if the narrator knows what to do with the voices. Also, I don't know if the author of a book has any say in the narrator/book match, but they should; I believe an author can loose credibility and thus a fan base of their books are good and their narrator is bad.
Absolutely awful! The narration is like you would hear for an animal planet documentary. Just reads it, with no emotion whatsoever. The story is about the same ,blah, with lots of sex. Nothing there to get you interested in these characters. I couldn't finish it, and really don't care.
The story was great and all the characters are written well. The book had adventure, love, romance, mystery and a sense of family. Along with a few points where I couldn't help but laugh. I would suggest reading this book along with the others in this series.
I simply enjoyed this book! I've read/listened to it over 10 times! It gets you from the very first line! I think the reader Kevin Foley does an amazing job bringing these characters to life!!
