Only a little bit. The book was magical, but Therese is a hella good reader. She really got the characters and their situations and feelings... and all of that came through in the reading
How well every feeling and emotion came through. You don't just read one of Jax's stories, you FEEL them.
Her voice was fantastic, her voices for different characters was consistant, and she really knew how to put the emotions of the customers into her reading. Her reading it was, mixed with the vivid imagry of the story, made this like a movie!
It's a heart stopping, panty dropping, ass kicking good time!
I have been happily married for 17 years, I have 3 children (12, 14, & 16), and 2 dogs. I am currently working on a 2nd degree. Life is chaotic and stressful, but I wouldn't change it. I am blessed and enjoying my life.
I loved the relationship that is developing between Jolie and Hawk. Jolie's sauciness was so entertaining. I can't wait to see how the rest of the series develops. Hawk is a wonderful hero!
Jax Garren’s world is very interesting and Therese Plummer’s voices are distinct and very recognizable. TP is a very talented narrator.
Over all I believe it’s going to be a good series. I have already downloaded the 2nd and 3rd books!
I never read the print version but Therese Plummer did a wonderful ob as always.
Of course Hauk! He is so damaged on the outside but once you know him and what he is all about you can't help but to love him.
She brings every character to life. I was so glad when I saw she was the narrator I just had to purchase the book on her alone.
Could you love a beast.......
Just buy the book it is worth it. I know its short but the action and romance are great! give it a try!!
First of all thank you to Therese Plummer who is amazing. I wouldn't have found this book or taken the chance on it if it wasn't read by her.
I was really surprised by how much I liked this book. I usually don't listen to books that are this short but was very glad I did because this one was awesome. I must admit i was half expecting some cheesy rendition of Beauty and the Beast. However, thankfully that was not the case. This story took on a life of its own and surprisingly the characters were really well done. There is so much about this book that I loved; the romance, the action, suspense and the magic. Hauk was definitely my favorite character though. He just has so many intricate details about him and is just plain awesome. Trust me....just listen. I don't think you will regret it.
Can't wait to finish the whole series!
“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!
I bought this book because of the reviews and was quite excited for this sexy, Steampunk retelling of my favourite fairy tale, but I sadly was very disappointed. To start with I felt a little concerned that beauty is only 17 and working in a strip club.I don't think that is legal or moral. The book was not very sexy or very Steampunk. There's only one sex scene at the very beginning, but it felt forced. And the whole time I just kept thinking "how is this physically possible?"! There was a cloth screen between them so I must have missed something, because otherwise it just wasn't possible to be doing what they were doing.
As for the Steampunk element, well, I did kind of like how it was portrayed. It's more underground Steampunk, literally. There's the Underlight society which is located underground and that's where all of the steam and clockwork is. But we don't get to see too much of it either way, since our hero and heroine are on the run from an enemy society. I'm still not fully clear on what was happening with that. I just kind of nodded my head and continued reading and was glad to reach the end.
Glad the book was only a few dollars or I would have felt very ripped off
