I am totally addicted to Cat and Bones. I also find myself looking forward to hearing from the supporting characters like Vlad who cracks me up or Spades cool control and her P.I.T.A. mother. Jeaniene Frost draws you in within the first sentence but Tavia Gilbert presents the story to you with a punch. Jeaniene builds great drama, creates amazing characters and presents a great story. If you are new to this series it is a must to start from the beginning but you will NOT be disapointed. Many characters are brought back from previous books so you will get lost. Credits or money well spent.
Story was a bit flat for me. This was my first Kristan Higgins book and I am not sure I will be over the moon to download another book written by her. I couldn't understand when the male love interest showed now outward physical attraction but did show annoyance would there ever be a draw for the reader. I am glad to report that she kept the mention of her super support under ware to a short description. It was an ok read but I was finding myself looking through my i-pod to see what was next to look forward too. I can honestly tell you the narrator wore me out with the breathy reading. Someone please get her an oxygen tank PLEASE!!!
This was total fiction for me. I however I did like the story and where it went. I would have loved to run away from family, friends and life in general but that is why I read. The characters were developed nicely, hearing from both sides of the story. I would have liked a male to narrate the mans view in this book but the narrator did well enough. It took a while to build and felt enveloped at the end of the book completely. That for me made it a good read…..but not great. I love the idea of how fate draws us to one another however, the book could have started out a bit stronger.
This book had me at its opening letter. "This story isn't about possibility but probability". I couldn't stop talking about this book once I was done. A constant nail biting, what will happen next book. It drove me to paranoia thinking how would my family respond to such a terroristic attack and how would I protect my family. This is a fantastic read. I noticed it was on special today. I encourage you to read it. This isn't a warm fuzzy book. Reality at its best. Read at your own risk.
NOS4A2 is a fantastical wild ride of multi-dimensional fear and horror. If you are a fan of Joe Hill he will not disappoint. The main character Vic takes you on a journey through her life of what is real and unreal and what you shouldn't believe. The characters are so creepy that you will find yourself slightly paranoid looking over your shoulders and wishing you had a third eye to keep on your kids. Don't expect flowery endings and super hero characters. Every character is gritty and real. I found the extra bonus at then end of the book where Joe Hill explains the development of NOS4A2 and insight into his life growing up in the home (of what I thought would be amazing) of 2 amazing novelists. Joe Hill and NOS4A2 earned all 5 stars from me. For as twisted as this story is I am sure you made your parents proud Mr. Hill.
I picked up this book on the recommendation from people that I follow on the Audible site. I am glad I downloaded it. It is a unexpected sexual romp that develops between two people who are very driven get on each others nerves and know they shouldnt cross that line when it comes to inter office romance. It is a fun love/hate relationship with a lot of confusion when it comes to feelings, careers, and the struggle of what's right and wrong. When it comes down to that animal urge they just say "F-it" and let it fly. I like how you hear from each characters point of view. I always want to know what the guy is thinking. Lots of humor which I like and very likeable people. It is worth the credit and I will look for this author in the future.
I was excited to read this book due to the star rating. Boy was I bamboozled. The story builds up to make him look like a member of a freaky sex club and she a former victum of a horrific sexually abusive relationship. The story was long winded and drawn out. It really didnt have much of a plot. I thought that Gabriel was a pompus jerk and Julianne was a prudish fridged twit. Thinking about it they were perfect for each other. I like men who are swoon worthy and strong who make a wonan feel cherished adored but take charge and be a man. He didnt fit that bill. Listening to the story line and the way it was built up I thought her past lover really did a number on her but when she told her story all he did was cheat on her and they were not even in a serious relationship (holding hands, political dinners and long distance love letters). The worst he did was sing the Nine Inch Nails song "Animal" to her. Later her past lover out of the blue, storms into her dads house at one point of the book and attacks her. There was no telling of violence in their past and made me think I skipped a part of the book. It made no sense to me but I will tell you that was probably the most exciting part of the book. When Gabriel and Julianne finally do the "deed" (which is the last hour of the book by the way)he damn near wrapped her in bubble wrap before sex.
This book is one big build of nothing with no climax and no big "O". I will NOT waste my credit on the next book. If you think this is anything like FSOG ...tortured souls yes....hot romance.....its not.
Many plot twists and turns in this story. Sitting here thinking about the book makes me believe that there was something in the water to make the residence of Bryan's Town nutty. I love a book that makes you be your own detective trying to solve the murder. This book was no exception. Broken Harbor makes you appreciate the detail that goes into an investigation to solve the mystery but also the human aspect of doing the job right and not allowing your own personal demons alter the outcomes.
One thing that irks me with all of her books is the way she writes a story about the detective within a story but you never solve the mystery of the detective's background. I guess that is her writers M.O.
The narration by Stephen Hogan was very well done. I enjoyed the Irish lilt and common everyday lingo. The distinction between all characters were very well played.
Overall I will always be a Tana French fan always wanting just a little bit more about the detective.
I was looking forward to this next book in the series and I gotta say it was such a let down. I listened to the entire book gave it a week to settle in before I gave my review and here I am. It seems to me that Dean had switched up his abilities but I find myself a bit confused. The one thing that did stick out for me was his conflict with having the ability to see Stormy again but passing on his baser instinct for self happiness. I am an Odd Thomas fan but I am a little concerned where this is going.
The banter between the characters. The love scenes were hot but funny.
Molly Harper books. Not the same type of story line but the same type of character development with humor and great love scenes.
I laughed out loud when she walked in on her mom having sex with her boyfriend.
I just enjoyed the whole story and how it developed. There were parts where I laughed out loud. I also loved how the whole team started to accept her as one of the members of the team.
I will be downloading more books from this author. Hope they are all as good as this one. I looked up the authors bio and found that this is a book series. Audible please get the rest. I want to read more.
The book starts with a disclaimer that it is an adult book with all the warning bells and whistles of keeping it away from minors. I was intrigued. When I was done I wanted to inform everyone the warning should be how this book is so awful, narration was just the worst and the story was so poorly written that I think a minor wrote it. I would like to leave no stars for this one just to get my point across. Don't even consider this trash when browsing for a hot romance.
