This series keeps getting better with each installment. The theme is strong tough guys fighting a good fight against bad guys and falling for the one woman who can make or break them. A strong family standing behind the brothers. And all the family issues that come with having a big family. Maya takes all of this into account with a steamy romance between the lead characters. Predictable yes, but worth the credit.
I think this is the best one of the series so far. We new Darcy's story was coming. And maybe because I like female characters with edge. And the alpha males that have the guts to love them. I enjoyed the characters and Karen White as dead on with the narrations.
This is a good romance if you enjoy Ms Shalvis.
Bree Simpson story I did like better than the first book. Again not Amy's best. I think I would have preferred Karen White as the narrator. But Bree's determination makes for a good listen. I will say Kathleen still seems to be rushing through these stories. But for a fun simple romance and because I really do like Kathleen Brooks I enjoyed this book. It is not for everyone. It's a simple romance
I enjoyed the simplicity of Kathleen Brooks Bluegrass series. She created engaging characters. She continues with Women of Power. But I was hoping for a little more. The female lead falls oh so fast and the romance is rushed. But I am hoping that book 2 is better. I enjoy the premise of woman taking the lead.
I am not a fan of how Amy McFadden narrates this story. She is just okay and sometimes the female voices a whiny. Steamy not so much.
The plot is simple the intrigue lacking, you know who the bad guy is and what the heroine is going to do to save the day. If you are going through Nora books then you may find this trilogy interesting. If you are starting out with Nora, she does have better. Only get if your a fan and it's on sale
Eve Hamilton was the best part of this 2nd book in the trilogy . You can tell this was one of Nora's earlier works. The story was simple and the romance the same. But for an easy listen this was okay. I would wait for a large sale before purchasing
Susan Ericksen first let me say is one of my favorite narrators. I simply love the intensity she brings to the characters. The story was okay for the start of a trilogy . Nora does has more engaging trilogies. The story was charming. I would hold off on the purchase unless you simply like Nora Roberts book
So this book based on what went on in the story appears to be book two. That being said the story was interesting. There is just enough going on to keep your interest from beginning to end. And it may be because of the cast of characters introduced. The alpha ‘s personality comes at you right off start, but why he is the way he is probably played out in book one. I would have preferred the female lead to have just a little more common sense when engaging the alpha. Maybe just a little more fire in the gut, despite her self-image. Basically this a shifter story with some romance and some action. It took me a while to get use to the narrator. But I don’t think she did a bad job. I just didn’t care for the way she did the male voices. This book is a maybe. If it goes on sale and you are looking for a shifter story give it a try.
There is so much wrong with this story, I just don’t know where to begin.
Connor as an alpha male comes off as wimpy. He is a jaguar shifter who lets his sister have way too much control over his life choices. Who does that? And Kathleen come on, she is supposed to be a trained solider, but poor me falls apart after leading and the key word is leading a mission that ends in failure. Basically like this review the story is all over the place. The premise of the book was good, but the characters not developed. The love connection is forced. Even the bad guys come off as campy.
The narrator wasn’t that great. Save your credit.
Talk about a book that draws into a story. From the start the book has you hooked because you want to hear the story within the story. I have listen to several Sandra Brown books and what is enjoyable is the story telling. And yes if you will most likely figure out who is who in this tale, but it the why of it that won’t let you walk away for the tale. This easily is one of my favorite Sandra Brown books.
Victor Slezak at first I found his narration some what annoying, so it was the story that kept me engage. But he has a style of his own and he grows on you. Similar to Jim Frangione narrations. Not the greatness job doing female voices, but the way he reads engages you. If you like a romance with some mystery and depth this is a choice.
Finally a strong female lead. Alpha males, who enhance the storyline instead of dictate it. And a good start to series. You'll find yourself involved with the secondary characters and the desire to hear their story. Romance is not over top. If you enjoy a fast easy listen for the entertainment of an action love story, then I recommend the book. If you are looking for the next best seller, a super great mystery or an erotic feast, this may not do it for you. I just like the fact of strong female leads that don't bend. Gillian Vance is new for me but does a great job.
