    Izzy Zanella wasn’t looking for another reason to butt heads with his Navy SEAL teammate, and nemesis, Danny Gillman. But then he met Danny’s beautiful younger sister, Eden. When she needed it most, he offered her a place to stay, a shoulder to cry on - and more. And when she got pregnant with another man’s child, he offered her marriage. But Eden’s devastating miscarriage shattered their life together - and made the intense bad blood between Izzy and Danny even worse. Now Eden’s back, and she’s on a mission to rescue her teen brother, Ben, from their abusive stepfather.

    "Just a porn novel"
    Overall

    I did not like the people and I did not like all the graphic sex. I could not finish this novel. This is the first book I have ever stopped to write a review about because it was so bad.

    For Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD, the job is a useful reminder of what she has to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarke's big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but it’s a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood. Other couples aren’t as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying on the floor of their Downing Street apartment, stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned - and even more heartbroken by the overwhelming evidence that they were murdered by their own son.

    Story

    I love the In Death books. However, there was way too much violence in this book. I fast forwarded through a good portion of the book because it was too violent. I would have liked to see more interaction between the characters of the book and less of the perpetrator.

    She's determined to get the story... Tabloid reporter Frannie Fielding arrives at Haliday Hall with three ghost hunters to investigate possible ghost infestations. But there's more to Frannie and the ghost hunters than meets the eye. He'll do whatever it takes to stop her... Sinclair Haliday, a dead ringer for Heathcliff or Mr. de Winter, finds the peskiest of the intruders to be Frannie with her endless questions - although he has to admit she's the cutest living creature he's ever seen.

    Dishonorably discharged, former Navy SEAL Shane Laughlin is down to his last ten bucks when he finally finds work as a test subject at the Obermeyer Institute, a little-known and believed-to-be-fringe scientific research facility. When he enters the OI compound, he is plunged into a strange world where seemingly mild-mannered scientists - including women half his size - can kick his highly skilled ass.

    What would have made Born to Darkness better?

    The novel was way too graphic sexually.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Melanie Ewbank and Patrick Lawlor ?

    Yes, definitely.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger that I was expected to listen to this stuff. I just chose to delete.

    Jonas Quarrel was lean, sexy, and equally capable of quoting Renaissance poetry or wielding a dagger. Verity Ames knew Jonas was the perfect partner for an affair - and that he was not the marrying kind. Before long he would be looking for new excitement, leaving Verity behind to run her gourmet restaurant in a California resort, hold on to misty colored memories, and wonder what she was going to do if she were pregnant with his child.

    Overall

    I started reading Gifts of Fire and quicky came to enjoy the characters. However, I felt like I was missing something. That this was the second part of their story. I actually thought maybe they were supporting characters in another of Krentz's books. I researched the issue and realized this was actually their second book. They were the lead characters in Gift of Gold. However, this book is not available in Audible's library. Really feel cheated. Hope to find it at a regular bookstore so I will know the whole story.

    This story could stand alone if it had to but I really feel it would be a better story of you read Gift of Gold first.

    After three romantic flame-outs in a year and a restaurant career going nowhere, Dani Buchanan needs a fresh start. She goes looking for her biological father, but never expects to find a senator running for president. As his long-lost "love child", Dani could seriously derail the election - something his handsome campaign manager, Alex Canfield, isn't going to let happen.

    I really liked the rest of this series but I found this character a little self-absorbed and whiny. I wanted to quit the story half way though except I liked the other characters too much.

    For Francesca Day, it's not the end of her world, but close to it. She's London-bred, wealthy, and sophisticated, but fate leaves her flat broke and stranded on a back road in Texas. Now she's got to deal with reality without her rich girl props. How can she do it? In Dallas Beaudine, gritty and handsome, lies the answer. He stops his car to help Francesca, whose life needs a tune-up, as well as her car. Stopping could lead to the biggest mistake, or best time, ever.

    Donna A says: "Unlikable Main Character"
    "Too wordy"
    Overall

    I would have to agree with the other review that stated that in this book she goes into too much detail about the characters and their families. The concept was a great story but waivered too much from where it needed to be.

    I am usually very easy on books and am not critical but on this book I agree with the criticism.
