  • Lover Awakened: Black Dagger Brotherhood, Book 3

    • UNABRIDGED (15 hrs and 13 mins)
    • By J.R. Ward
    • Narrated By Jim Frangione

    The vampire Zsadist is a former blood slave with a violent past. When he meets Bella, Zsadist thinks her human love could be his path to salvation. Then Bella is kidnapped, and Zsadist will stop at nothing to get her back.

    BluBumbleB says: "My Favorite!"
    "Adore Zsadist...abhore Jim Frangione"
    What did you like best about Lover Awakened? What did you like least?

    The depth of pain the leads have to overcome makes for a conflicted yet tender storyline.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Zsadist is my favorite brother...definately the character that has the most growth in the series and the most depth.

    What didn’t you like about Jim Frangione’s performance?

    It was unremarkable, bland even. The Brothers do not have individual voices, even Butch who has a Boston accent, was read in the same tone as Wrath (also suppose to have an accent.) There is such a richness in dialogue, snappy sarcasm and smart ass one-liners, contrasted with sincere, heartfelt depth that the practically monotone reading was just horrible. If you can READ this book, don't listen to it. The AUDIO is a WASTE of an incredible story. I would avoid all books read by this performer, at all costs.

    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    A better narrator would have sent this over the top. And less time spent with the Lessers, I always just skipped over those parts as I read. They really did not add much depth or more conflict to the story.

  • Driving Mr. Dead

    • UNABRIDGED (5 hrs and 2 mins)
    • By Molly Harper
    • Narrated By Amanda Ronconi
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Miranda Puckett has failed at every job she’s ever had. Her mother just wants her to come home, join the family law firm, and settle down with Jason, the perfect lawyer boyfriend. But when Jason turns out to be a lying cheater, Miranda seizes on a job that gets her out of town: long-distance vampire transportation. Her first assignment is to drive vampire Collin Sutherland from Washington to sleepy Half Moon Hollow without incident—no small feat for a woman whom trouble seems to follow like a faithful hound dog!

    "Snortingly Funny with a strong Narration"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I recommend listening to this in private...because you will laugh and snort out loud! Well performed by Amanda Ronconi, truly meshed with the voice of Miranda Puckett. The sincerity of Miranda 'Jinx' Puckett's tenacity in face of incredible missteps and mishaps juxtaposed nicely with the OCD to the extreme Vampire.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the snappy voice of Miranda, her earthiness at the heart of her chaotic life, and how that heart melts the icey, anal-retentiveness of Colin, a true descendant of Mr. Darcy himself...eventually charmed by his less than perfect companion. Love the down to earth humor Molly Harper's characters all have. She truly gets the inner workings of "interesting" women everywhere.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    I adored how Miranda summarized the whole disastrous trip to one of our favorite rogue vamps.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughed so hard I snorted...which is why I was listening to this at home.

    Any additional comments?

    I want this story developed into a full novel, more adventures with Miranda and Colin, it ended too quickly!
