I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Fantasy/other-world/alien type romances aren't usually my thing, but I very much enjoyed this book. My only complaint is that I found it a bit difficult to follow the descriptions of where they were and what was happening in Aiden's world. I listen for pleasure and don't really care to work too hard mentally at it. lol. The story is of Aiden and Lyssa. Aiden is a angel that provides pleasure to Lyssa in her dreams. That is until her physical person is threatened and Aiden takes the risk and makes the jump to her world. All in all this is a very good love story and as we know, Ms. Day is very good at writing those steamy love scenes. This is the first book in this series. The following book is Heat of the Night, which I enjoyed very much also and will review separately.
Shana Savage was OK with the delivery of the story.
I cannot understand what's happening because of the poor performance of the narrator. Yikes! Her muddled accents and awful male voices are very distracting. I won't ever listen to a book with this narrator again. I'm not usually so negative and can find great things about each book I listen to but I have tried several times to make it through this book but I can't! :(
I love Books!!!!
I love Sylvia Day but this story line was just very confusing and the performance was bad. Her accents were terrible. Not for sure if I will continue with the series.
I definitly did not love the imitation of the Irish accent ! That kind of ruined the excitement of the story a bit.....
Overall the story in itself was really good :)
I have listened to many of Sylvia's books......the majority of which are performed by Jill Redfield.
The narrator on an audiobook is what makes it or breaks it. The narrator's Irish brogue just wasn't believable and it was horribly inconsistent.
Once again, Day weaves a world of fantasy that never ceases to surprise and captivate. The concept of dream guardians and dimensional travel is well laid out and explained. I appreciate that Day kept this first book connected to it's main characters while also setting the stage for the series. Compared to some of her other works, this books isn't quite so blatantly erotic, but is still sexy and not for those easily scandalized. I guess, if you're reading in this genre then you should know this already.
The narration was okay, although the accents were a bit exaggerated at times and I would have chosen someone like Jill Redfield or Tavia Gilbert for a series like this one -- a series with a plethora of both male and female characters needing definite vocal distinction. With books like these, it's imperative that each character is easily distinguishable especially since the characters weave in and out of all the books -- connected in some way to each. Narration can easily make or break a series like this and for me, the decision to purchase the series as a whole had more to do with my appreciation for the author than because I felt that I just couldn't wait to listen.
It was OK, but I think I would have enjoyed re-listening to one of her other stories.
No, I would recommend her Georgian and Crossfire series.
I was neither impressed, nor turned off, with the narrator.
If I had not already listed/read Georgian or Crossfire series, I would have said "Maybe?".
I really liked the story of this book, Unfortunately this reader made this book very boring. I read the book and could not put it down, however listening to it, I was very disappointed. The only times she changes her ques is when making a dialogue, but her narration is very flat and monotone, In other words, she bored me.
She was very monotone, she lost me and bored me.
