In order to give this book a chance, you have to forget the Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Next, you have to forget that Jessica Bird and J.R. Ward are one in the same. Then, and only then, does this book stand a chance. Almost impossible for those who love the BDB series, myself included.
"The Rebel" was okay. Good narration by Gayle Hendrix, but the story was uncomfortably slow. If I hadn't used one of my credits, I may not have finished it. On the plus side, I was looking for a light romance, and that's exactly what I got. So, I am very glad that I stuck it out.
Give this one a chance, if you are up for the challenge!
Zane is very well known for her sexy novels. But underneath them all are deep, moving stories with very well-rounded characters.
If you are easily offended, then books by Zane are not for you. But, if you don't mind a good story with really good sex thrown in, then these are books for you. "Addicted" and "Nervous" (the sequel to "Addicted") were awesome. I highly recommend them both.
Awesome narration by Nicole Small. I will seek out other audiobooks with her as narrator.
Not the greatest narrator. However, I was able to overlook that because I was really interested in the story. Give it a try. I'm glad I did.
The narrator killed this one for me. Although I love Kate Reading in other settings, she was a bad choice on this one. I have tried "The Host" several times, only to give up for bad delivery. If I revisit this selection in the future, I will try paperback or ebook, but not the audio.
Can't win them all.
