Yes, and exclusively because of Robert Petkoff!! He makes these Kresley Cole books feel like an extended romp in the park!! SO MUCH FUN!!
the discussion about the "lipstick" ... i laughed so hard i had to turn off my ipod so i could hear what happened next! BRILLIANT writing on that one! so funny!!
I have gone in and found other books in genres i don't normally listen too just because of this narrator! He is brilliant!
I am not sure i would like any of Kresley Cole's books if i just read them. Alittle too "romancy" and alittle too "heaving boosom" stuff.... but listening to them narrated by Mr Petkoff makes me want to stay in that world always! He has made this series my hands down favorite and i will buy each one the second it is released.
The writing is suberb as well and i find the story different and refreshing. I like the authors descriptiveness and the outgoing, shame free personalities of each of the characters.
I now wish for a Lychay of mine own!!
I don't read.... But i can say i am adoring the narration and the entire series!
I really like the heroines in this series. They are practical and realistic women. They are alot like me! Melanie is awesome and i adore her right along with Aimee and Sarah from the previous two installments.
GREAT NARRATION!!! Wonderful performance! Really good with all the voices and accents etc.
I have laughed out loud more than once. I have smiled and grimaced and really been a part of this world whilst listening. This whole series is one that once i start a book, i can't stop and have to listen straight through... :]
Can't wait to get the next one!!! I want to be an Immortal Gaurdian! (or the girlfriend to one, at the very least!)....
YES!!! Any of the Frost/Gilbert pairings are the most entertaining and fun world to enter!! Just the right amount of adult themed fun along with great plots and just enough adventure! Frost books move along quickly and are never boring! The sex is also quite well written! Tavia Gilbert is an amazing...wonderful... fantastic.... narrator!! i just adore her and all the voices are distinct and the characters are clearly defined! GREAT pairing!
I love SPADE!!! He is so sexy and masculine and refined!!! GREAT male character!!
EVERYTHING!! See above... nothing but glowing praise for her as a narrator!! i will never hesitate to purchase something she has narrated!
Almost! Spent a weekend and i was done...
Great author!! Get anything she has written and is narrated by Tavia... wonderful, fun entertainment!! :]
I don't read, i only listen.... and i very much enjoyed this audio book!!
I really like to get to know the characters and Kresley Cole is the best at character developement! I fell in love with Evie and Jack!!
Evie was performed brilliantly!! Jack was quite good too .... They were all done well and i could tell who was talking and distinguish their characters perfectly!
at the end... i know she needed to leave us hanging... but i don't like how it went down with Jack and Evie...
I am quite fond of Kresley Cole as an author and am addicted to her adult series which is narrated by Robert Petkoff.... (can't go wrong there!) ... I do listen to some YA books and this one was very good for the genre. I do prefer a bit more adult situations... but she managed to get in some real teenage angst and some discovery as well... which is nice... i like to have the characters evolve during a story... which they all did!!
I will definitly purchase the second installment in this series when it becomes available!!
I don't know, i rarely have time to sit and read. I can say that without Robert Petkoff's naration i do not think i would enjoy these books as much as i do.
He is the best narrator ever!! I adore all of his performances and i always look for books he has narrated. His ability to do different accents is amazing. He is also quick with the dialoge scenes and can switch up the accents so that i am always certain of who in the story is talking. I can't say enough about his brilliant performance narration! He is awesome!!!
I really enjoy all the Kresley Cole books. They are kind of my guilty pleasure and the second that Audible gets another release i buy it and listen to it straight through, usually only takes me a couple days tops. I rarely do that with the other titles i get. So i guess that means i like her and this narrator a lot. The story usually moves along nicely and there is always at least one or two really good sex scenes. Plus the world of the Lore is fun and interesting and different! GREAT Author with a fabulous immagination! THANKS! :]
I will probably listen again. I really liked the narrator! He did a great job with the all the charaters and i could easily tell them apart! I am quiet fond of J.R Wards style of writing! It is hip, modern and edgy.
When Vin saw Gretchen from across the club. I was so there!!
No, this was my first to be narrated by him. LOVED his deep masculine voice! thought he was supberb for this book!
I love anything supernatural or different. The whole story line and concept are right up my alley. So well written too!! Never a boring or dull moment!
I am delighted to see that Jim Heron is in the next installments. i wish he would walk into my life!! I plan on purchasing the next 2 when my credits come in this month!
Yes, i will. The writing in her books is so rich and complex!! i know i miss allot and am just about to go back and re-listen to the entire Outlander series again. Last time i did this it took me a year to get through all of them. But that is a GOOD thing!! i adore being in that world with Jamie and Clare. I am head over heels in love with Jamie though!! I liked it that this book was exclusively about him!
The Narration was great! I can't get enough of the Scots brogue and both narrators did supberb jobs of creating the characters as individual and distinct!
I always have viceral reactions to any DG book!! She has a way of writing that transcends words and goes straight to my heart. I have no idea how she does it but she is a fabulous author!!
It was thrilling to get a small peak into Jamie's time at Hellwater. I was sad when it ended. i wanted more of him and Willie especially. His character is so rich and developed that i think of him as an entirely REAL PERSON!!! He is someone that is now in my heart as if a relative or friend. I will always recommend ANY book that GB has written or participated in. She is the master!! Always worth the purchase and always memorable, entertaining and REAL! I also always learn something about history or the way humanity thought or felt. What can i say? This author is my hands down favorite of all time!
Yes! Moved along nicely. GREAT characters and personality definition! Perfect sprinkling of erotic and humor!
I loved the humor sprinkled in. It was modern and fun. GREAT ride!!
I loved Dragos and how he evolved throughout the book. Pia was great too and her evolotion was expected. But the author did a great job of showing how Dragos had never loved and why that would feel so forgein to him. His changes throughout the book were inspiring to me as an author.
This was an easy listen. Great narrator. Fun story. Some Erotica and lots of humor from the distinctly different characters. I got it on sale and would recommend waiting for it to cost less than one credit but overall a really fun romp for a weekend of listening!
i tried this one since it was short and quick and practically free. Wanted to get a taste for this author since she seems to get rave reviews in the genre i like. I wish i could say that i was now going to jump right in and get all her titles but alas, sigh, i don't think i will. I normally don't even give a review if i don't like a book. i try and stick with the positivies i feel about books. This one wasn't even that memorable. i think it could have been half an hour instead of the three something it ended up.
Shrug, what can i say? Not bad!! Really well written! Just not memorable or stirring in anyway. I didn't get a viceral reaction which is what usually makes me fall in love with an author and read everything they have written. Not so much with this one. Sorry! I just wasn't at all moved and it wasn't something i will think about in the future.
Probably not. See what i wrote above.
I loved his smooth, deep voice! He was GREAT!!
No idea. It was lacking something but i am not sure what.
I haven't reviewed any of the other books because after each one i am in love with the male lead. This one was about Revenge and i ended up totally falling for him as well. Messed up as he was i wanted to belong to him by the end.
J.R. Ward has a way of creating a true person from each of her characters. Never brushing over anything or leaving any dark places. Her mirror is uncovered and the lights are on! Naked and unashamed! i really appreciate those kinds of REAL characters.
Even the homo-errotiscism is okay with me. it is REAL! Intricate and developed beings that can live for a thousand years would indeed be attracted to and love BOTH sexes! It is their souls and not their bodies that we are discovering in each of the BDB books and it is because of the authors ability to show us their souls that i am in love with all of them!
I can't listen back to back to these books however. They are much more emotional than allot of other stuff i tend to listen too and i often find myself tearing up and crying. But i am working my way through them all and am near the end. i will start her fallen angel collection next.
I love his smooth voice and easy delivery. I do wish for more distinction between the characters and voices. Wish for a few more accents thrown in there. Not to be that kind of person but here goes; i can only imagine how great these books would be if Robert Petkoff had narrated them??
But Mr. Frangione is becoming a comfortable friend in my ears and i am glad for the continuity throughout the entire series. I always look before starting a new series and if the narrator changes more than once i usually won't start. So, i am grateful for that continuity.
Robert Petkoffs narration of the characters is brilliant. His Lothaire was PERFECT for the character portrayed. I like how the author mixes in lots of steamy scenes and Lothaire was chalk full of them! Go Russian Vampire!!
I now look for other titles that he has narrated. He is BRILLIANT!!
I always laugh out laud when listening to a KC book. She has a way of making even the trials and tribulations of the supernatural funny, touching and sincere. Almost like real life??
Because of the pairing with Robert Petkoff i have become totally addicted to Kresley Cole as an author. Normally i don't skip ahead in a series but i couldn't stop myself from buying Lothaire even though it was billed as the last one and so far Audible has only released the first three in the series. (PLEASE do more ASAP!!)
All i can say is BRAVO!! for a fictional romance type of novel it was brilliant! FUN! SEXY!
Mr Petkoff could read the phone book and i would be enthralled!! His delivery and use of different accents are PERFECT for each character. His Scotts/Lachay interpretation are now the men of my dreams! His Accent for Lothaire was spot on. I finished this one in only 2 days but the entire time i kept blurting out, "VWOMPIRE!!"
If you want a really good time just buy one of Kresley Coles books and enter a totally different world full of adventure and sex and modern pop culture.
i can't wait for the next installment and am already re-listening to the 3 i own.
