This is a "Julie Garwood" which to me translates to "automatic buy. I'm a little disappointed, I expected more. The characters didn't engage me and hang on like I expected, but it was an okay read.
I love Marliss Melton, I have all her books and I was so happy to see her on Audible. But....the narrator. I listened to the sample, thinking, hoping wishing the overly dramatized teen-age sounding voice would it improve, but no. I'm so disappointed. I'm not familiar with this narrator, I can barely understand her, and I really really wanted more from her. Maybe the next book will have a better narrator.
The strength of the main character Yelena and and how hard she works to become a strong woman.
Yes, one could not tell what nasty thing would befall our heroine next.
When Marge tried to bully Yelena again and she bent her arm and put her face first against the wall! Sweet!
When Yelena asks Varek what he wants from her, she is so vulnerable-and Varek says, everything!
Gabra Zackman has me for spoiled for other narrators. I feel that few can compete with her ability to bring the story to life with her voice.
Yes, it's on my keeper shelf along with the rest of the KGI series. The characters are deep and engaging, strong and likeable.
The way PJ responded to the trauma she experienced. In typical PJ fashion she kicked major A$$! She didn't break, she did what most women wish they could do and got more than even. I'm a great PJ fan!
He isn't Harry Berkeley, and at first I was put off by that. Harry even makes the women sound believable. Not so much Adam. But he didn't ruin the book, he did very well, though not as masculine sounding as Harry.
Oh yeah! I cried at the pain caused by the criminals to everyone who came into contact with them and laughed at the byplay between PJ and Cole and the rest of the Kelly clan.
Yes, listen to this book, but listen to them in order so you can get the whole story, then fall in love with these tough tender guys and strong loving women just like I did! Start with Ethan and Rachel's' story-The Darkest Hour- and continue until you reach the end, then start again!
I just finished the series of Jane Yellowrock and in three words I would say---addictive, a keeper, and more!
George Dumas, because he is kind, dependable, resourceful and even Jane can't ruffle his feathers. All that beside being really good to look at..
Khristine involves me in the story, she does not simply read the lines, she becomes the characters and she does it very well. She really helps you to visualize the action.
Jane's vulnerability when Beast, her inner cat disappears and the loss throws her for a loop. She realizes how much she depends on Beast, but can't find her, doesn't know if she will be back. Jane doesn't usually do vulnerable, just brash, sarcastic and snarky, so this was a new experience for her.
Read the book or listen to it, or both, like me. You won't regret the credit, and you'll be waiting for the next book this fall.
Jeaniene Frosts writing is excellent and entertaining, and that in itself would be reward enough to read and really enjoy her books. But having Tavia Gilbert not just narrate, but bring the books to a howling life is like winning the lottery!
I wonder if Tavia will rescue me from the people with white jackets that fasten in the back when they find me screaming with laughter at the most inappropriate times!!
The characters are sympathetic but tough, and you just have to know what they'll do next!
I love this book and I am a fan of the narrator, but Bone's voice causes me to cringe in horror!
I picture an evil clown when she does his voice, and it just ruins the story for me. Bones is supposed to be masculine and in control, but this voice just sounds like a nasty troll!
I enjoyed this whole series by Ms.Briggs, starting with Moon Called, and I can only hope she's not done yet! I hated to see the end of the book come, and wait with baited breath for the next story. I hope to see Mercy and Adam figure prominently in future works, along with Anna and Charles. This book has twist and turns, mystery and a little romance thank goodness. Ms. Briggs videos an YouTube are an added bonus.
Good book and awesome narrator--a combination that kept me too entertained to put the ipod down. It's absolutely worth the circles under my eyes.
If you read Lily Bard, start at the beginning with Shakespeare's Landlord. This is book 5, the end of the series, and I really hate to see it end. Lily is an unusual woman and reading about her life in Shakespeare is well worth the credit. Lily is intelligent and self-sufficient (that black belt helps). This book did not disappoint, and the counselor and her husband-humm-- I don't know...(no spoilers coming atcha). Very entertaining, from beginning to end. The narrator is also excellent, and listening to her voice reading the story was a combination to engage and delight.
