Yes, it's great for a quick read.
I didn't want the book to end. I wanted more insight into the vampire/human world.
OMG, I loved this book. Let me just start by saying I literally cried the entire last two chapters. I’m not talking one or two tears, I mean nose running, puffy cheeks, red eyes crying. That is what makes me really love a book, when I become so emotional about the characters that I feel as if I’m a part of the story. Ok let me start from the beginning. Zander Cole is a wolf shifter that is part of a top secrect military organization known as the Alpha Pack. He is also a healer. During one of their battles, Zan lost most of his hearing and can no longer heal his teammates without causing significant damage to himself. That doesn’t stop him for doing it anyway because that is who the man is. Selene Westfall is a born wolf shifter and Alpha Packs commander’s daughter. But father and daughter have serious issues. Actually Selene blames her dad for her mother’s death and feels as if he needs to die because of it. Because of a bite in the heat of battle, Zander and Selene are now mates. Two broken souls, force to deal with their issues and make something work that neither expected.
Did I mention that I love this book already? Zander is a tough, caring, passionate male. He offers just the right amount of dominance without being overbearing. Selene is a sassy, tough, alpha female that is damage on the inside and just wants to be her daddy’s babygirl again. But first you have to get pass the mean as nail exterior. I felt as if the characters had to work for their relationship in this book. At the beginning neither wanted the other one, but they continued to work at their relationship and support each other. Their relationship was sweet and bitter, beautiful and gut wrenching at times and I enjoyed every freaking minute of it. Of course, the smex scenes were outstanding. Let’s just say, glass doors are fantastic.
So the big questions, to buy or not to buy? DEFINITELY BUY!! CLICK ON THE BUY BUTTON AND USE YOUR CREDITS!!!
This audible was short and sweet. Most short stories I read rush through and forget to add the actually story. Not with this book, it offered a nice story in the amount of time it was given.
It's a really short listen, so yes.
I wanted a book I could listen to while I was waiting and this book delivered. It offered a decent story, background and characters all under two hours. If this book was develop into a full novel, it would be outstanding. But is just as good as a short read. Enjoy
I’m all about a wolf shifter romance book that includes a hot alpha male and a sassy alpha female. Only this book lacked the alpha male part. The story is about Jason and Cadence. Jason had claimed Cadence when she was just nine and he was fourteen. Due to the fact that Cadence father was human and didn’t particular like wolves, Jason’s father had to make an alpha creed (order) that Cadence forget about the claiming, in order to save his son from having charges filed against him. So Cadence forgot about the claiming and Jason wasn’t allowed to remind her because of another alpha creed his father had given. So 14 years go by and Jason hasn’t in all that time tried to claim her or show her how much he has cared about her even after his father stepped down and Jason become alpha of the pack. Cadence has never stopped loving him but shows it by being mean to him and flirting with his rival in another pack. It isn’t until Cadence has graduated from college that Jason decides now is the time to claim her, only because the other pack of the town gave him an ultimatum, claim her or step aside.
I don’t know whether it is the writing or the reader but this story was more suited for a high school romance than an adult romance, minus the smex scenes and their rather tame. I agree with one review, several times while listening to this book, I caught myself rolling my eyes and wondering if I was reading a YA book instead. Yes Cadence is sassy and feisty (which I like in a heroine) but she acts as if she is still a senior in high school, with a crush on the quarterback of the football team. Jason is too passive. He doesn’t act like an alpha wolf. If he wanted to claim Cadence so badly and had been in love with her for that long, do something about it. Don’t send your younger brother as your errand boy, UGH! I have never listened to Dara and probably won’t if it’s an adult romance. She is suited best for YA in my opinion. Her voice has a more young adult tone to it.
So the big question is: is this book worth a credit, not in my opinion. If you can catch it on sale, maybe (and that’s a low maybe).
Pushover is the only word that comes to mind when thinking about this story. When I started reading this book I was excited about the heroine. She displayed a good mix of bravery, strength and femininity without being to overbearing or whiny. She was strong when the situation warranted such actions but still remain feminine and likeable. That is until the middle of the story. I’m not going to reveal the story but I am going to say she took a huge turn for the worse. She went from being a brave female facing a unknown world and future to a pathetic pushover that was easily conquered with sex. She allowed him to manipulate her, very easily I might add, into doing everything he wanted from her. Although he never truly called her his sex slave, he treated her as such and she allowed it. Taio is unbelievable and not in the OMG, he is a sex god meaning. He wants his cake and eat it too. He wants Eva for himself but refuses to even consider her as his possibly future mate. I just don’t believe his transformation in the end.
Warning, this book contains some f/f scenes that are extremely detailed. If that is something that you don’t like then don’t listen to this book. The actually scenes didn’t bother me; it’s the manner in which they were written that were annoying to me. Would I recommend this book, I’m on the fence about it. Like I said, the story starts off great; it’s about mid way through that I wanted to stop listening, groan and wondering about the sanity of the heroine.
I don’t know how you could not love this book.
Brenda escapes Earth because she is in a love less marriage. The original Zorn warrior she was to be bound to dies before they can reach Zorn. According to Zorn law, Brenda is given to his brother to be bound. But he is off world at the moment. Rever decides to offer Brenda his protection until her intended bound can come to collect her. This isn’t an issue because Rever is already bound. But the human Rever is bound to is an annoying, rude woman. Rever is soon regretting because upon meeting Brenda he is instantly wishing he was bound to her instead of the woman he has now.
The attraction between Rever and Brenda is erotic and romantic. The sex scenes are HOT HOT HOT!!!! I think I have enjoyed this book the best so far. I guess because the romance was sweet. It was like a forbidden fruit both wanted to enjoy but knew it was impossible to own. The sex scenes weren’t just thrown into the book but were placed within the story and help to enhance the story. So good.
First I was confused when I started listening to this book because I felt I started in the middle of a series instead of the beginning and I was right. The first book of this series is Grabbed by Vicious. Audible has this book but it was released after Saved by Venom, hence the confusion. But about the book, it was a decent book. It’s a sci-fi/romance book. Some of the background information is fuzzy but again, I think it’s because I started reading the third book first instead of the first book. The sex scenes are hot, detailed and deal with a lot of bondage, so if that is turn off for you, don’t read this book. Venom is a sexy dominate alpha male solider, yum, who has dreamt of nothing else since leaving the academy then that chance to participate in the Grabbed and select his wife. Dizzy’s father sold her lottery number for the Grabbed to escape a debt he owed a loan shark. Dizzy thought she knew what to expect from the sky warrior after being grabbed but she wasn’t ready for the intense sexual chemistry that would also follow. Stella’s voice was ok. I wish it would have had more variety for the different characters. Sometimes it was hard to understand which character was speaking at that moment.
My only suggestion would be to read Grabbed by Vicious first. I think it will help to understand the world in which the series takes place.
I was hoping for another home run with this book as with the previous two in this series, but sadly no. Don’t misunderstand me, this book is quite enjoyable but in comparison to the books before it, it falls short of the mark. I enjoyed the gradually building of the relationship between Nick and Shaya. Both of them learning to deal with their respective issues and allowing the other to slower get close enough to tear down defenses and walls that have been built up for years. The book has its moments when it was funny but not laugh out loud; I can’t stop crying as in the previous two books. I probably shouldn’t judge this book using the other books as a reference because this book is different but I can’t help but to make comparison. But I do like Nick. Dominating, alpha male, ohh so sexy Nick. Jill does an excellent job narrating. As I have said before she is captivating, intriguing and delivers that line precisely as you they should be delivered.
Bottom line, read the book. It’s worth a read. Just don’t expect the same experience as with the previous two books.
I guess I was hoping for more from this book. I finished reading the last book and was left with a cliff hanger, so I decided to pick up this book, just to figure out what was decided. I have never read about a more confusing female character. She says one thing and ultimately does the excat opposite and I refuse to believe that females are totally complacent as the female character is in this book. I had to stop the book several times and ask myself, "Why am I listening to this again"? I like Jasinda Wilder, which is the reason I read the first book in this series.
When I first read Samson Lovely Mortal and read that there was a gay member of the inner circle, I was curious as to whether Thomas would get his moment to shine (especially after the heartache he went through). So imagine my surprise, relief and happiness when I heard that Ms. Folsom was giving him his own story. Thomas and Eddie’s story was beautifully done. The conflicts both characters had to endure to find their HEA was both realistic and enduring.
Eddie is a young adult male who is struggling with his ever growing desire for Thomas. All his life he felt as if he was a straight man who was just picky about his choice of female companionship. Believing something must have happened to him upon his change, he refuses to submit to his feelings for Thomas and his secret desires. Thomas, believing Eddie is a heterosexual male, suppresses his longing for him. Thomas knows he will never have Eddie but that doesn’t stop him from being his mentor, roommate and friend. That is until one dark night while both Eddie and Thomas are on patrol.
Ms. Folsom doesn’t rush Eddie awakening and his understanding of his feelings for Thomas. She shows his conflict that he faces within, as well as his realization of the truth. The romance scenes are exotic and hot, but this can be sound about all of the Scanguard books. The scenes that were described aren’t anything that hasn’t been done before, only this time between m/m. I like Eric’s voice. I miss Kevin but I’m starting to appreciate Eric’s baritone voice as well.
Oliver realized that being a vampire wasn’t as grand as he thought it would be but is also learning that even though they are vampires, they still make mistakes and have flaws. Ursula is a courageous, strong, human who has suffered for the last three years at the hands of vampires and decides to trust a vampire to save the others she left behind upon her escaping. It took me a minute to get into the book. It didn’t captivate me at first like the previous Scanguards books, but once it got going, it GOT GOOD. I appreciate the struggle Ursula had to come to deal with because of her feelings for Oliver, a vampire and the idea of what her vampire prisoners had done to her. Also the struggle Oliver is learning to deal with learning to handle his every growing hungry for blood. This book contains a good combination of action, suspense, hot, exotic love scenes, and some really tender moments. I’m a complete addict for this series.
