I enjoyed this story very much. I loved the modern day spend on vampires. Its a touching story filled with the right amount of back story to unlock the make up of the main characters to show how or what made them into who they are today. I look forward to reading book 2.
I have a real crazy in love relationship with books!!!
It was but it definitely took some getting used to. This is primarily because of the crude language. And I mean I cuss all of the time but there were a few things that had me looking at my Iphone with the side eye. I mean I had to go back and read the summary again like am I listening to porn or what? lol
I have not.
Um yeah. Kevin Foley didn't miss a beat.
Well if it was a tv series I'm not sure what channel it would be on....well probably HBO. It was a good question of who the stars would be but I can't think of any at the moment.
Well it wasn't my favorite. It was a decent read but I can only recommend this if it is on sale.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
A good, hot and sexy vampire story with some unique twists. I enjoyed this listen, especially when narrator K. Foley has to scream in ecstasy as a vampire stripper...it is so bad that it's hilarious. This is a series and I definitely will continue on....
Unfortunately, the book was not worth the credit. Fortunately Audible's policy of returns will keep me coming back. The book starts out (seriously, the first sentence in the book!) with a graphic, dirty sex scene that you later discover is a "day-dream" of the lead character/vampire, Sampson. I like steam, but it was a turn-off rather than a turn-on, and just stupid. Then, the helpless human heroine gets hauled into a mansion of sex and blood starved vamps only to cause angst and remorse in our sexually dysfunctional "hero." The first 2 - 3 chapters proved the book would be too cliche and unoriginal to continue. If you are interested in chic-lit, erotica, bloodsucking, it may be for you. The narrator, Kevin Foley, was unable to pull off a good female voice, and even Sampson's voice was overacted.
I continue to compare the vampire-based stories in the selection of books available - both serious and historical to snarky, steamy and tame - to the exemplary writing of Deborah Harkness's "Discovery of Witches" novels. And its narrator, Jennifer Ikeda, is by far the stand-out narrator that has performed any reading of the ~50 Audible books I have listened to. Forget this one and use your credit for "Discovery" trilogy.
I know this is a vampire romance so I shouldn't be surprised...but the writing is so pornographic that I actually laughed out loud. I think the story could have been interesting but I was distracted by the graphic sex scenes and raunchy descriptions of body parts. Adding insult to injury is the narration. Another reviewer compared the narrator to Ben Stein and I have to agree. He reads the story without emotion and makes the female characters sound so whiny I wanted to kill them myself. The storyline has potential and a little more development might have salvaged it but plot resolution was clearly an afterthought here. Don't waste your time.

I like my romantic stories to have a real plot, not just a device to connect various steamy scenes. This book introduces a nice series with a believable back story. Not saving the world from evil, but preserving your little corner of it as best you can, just as we all do. Kind of like Lyndsay Sand's Argeneau series.
Yes the book is steamy, but the people are normal for the most part, not unreal sex machines, and they have, or develop, real feelings for each other. (Though I think the heroine's change of heart is a little abrupt at the end, one moment she's fleeing in terror from him and the next she's sacrificing herself for him?)
And I like the idea of a vampire needing a shrink. I hope Tina Folsom writes a book for Dr. Drake eventually.
I recommend this book and this series.
The one thing that mars the audiobook for me is that the narrator is too monotone. Even in the steamy parts his voice hardly varies. He does do character voices well though.
Hi My name is Rae and i love to read and also a very shy person.
Yes, I would love reading Samson's Lovely Mortal again. This book is awesome
That Samson told Delilah that he's a vampire
No. This is the first time I listened to Kevin Foley
IDK I never though about it.
Just love this book. So read it
Terrible, I could not finish it. I am not a prude by no means but seriously the F bomb is constant. Just to much for me. Pass on this unless you like the F bomb repeatedly.
Let me start with this series is nothing like nor do I believe it is trying to be like the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. It could be a series worth following, but don't buy it expecting something it's not.
I found the characters likable enough. The story was good, but it was basically a nice romance that happened to include vampires. The 2nd installment is available but I will not run to get it. Do not think it's worth buying but maybe worth a credit.
