    "LKH phoned it in"
    Overall

    I love the entire series and was so let down by this short and underwritten book. The book could have been great but LKH did not care. I will say that because I have read and listened to this series multiple times and know she is a much better writer than this book displayed. It was word for word repetitive of past books, leaving me to irritated to have to listen to the exact same thing I paid for in a previous book. The storyline, what was there, was okay to a huge let down. The majority of this book felt like filler, which I don't mind if the plot eventually pays off and the book is longer than 300 pages. This did not. A huge villian in the past three books was met and defeated in a few paragraphs at the end, shame on LKH and the editors.

    Leila's psychic abilities have been failing her, and now she isn't sure what the future holds. If that weren't enough, her lover, Vlad, has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she's also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold-shoulder treatment forever - especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won't admit that he loves her.... Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Twice Tempted to be better than the print version?

    Didn't read print version, but narrator was great.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    It was a good story that carries nicely from the first installment. I felt like it ended with more story to go. I read many series and there is a difference in a full story, an unfinished story and a cliffhanger(which I despise). This was an unfinished story leading to the next book which I find irritating because I feel kind of ripped off, like they just want more money for another book instead of finishing the current one.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I leave it up to you to find yours.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes but hate spoilers so not telling.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like this author you will enjoy the book which is the 2nd installment of the Night Prince series. I have liked this series which is connected to the Night Huntress series but does not have the humor found in the later, which I miss.

    Condemned and shunned for black magic, Rachel Morgan has three days to get to the annual witches' conference and clear her name, or be trapped in the demonic ever-after - forever after.

    But a witch, an elf, a living vampire, anda pixy in one car, going across the country? Talk about a recipe for certain disaster, even without being the targets for assassination.

    Mariya says: "Incredible Internal Consistency"
    "Great listen, horrible price"
    Overall

    If you have money and/or the credits to use, this is a great book in the series. Very dissapointed in the 2 credit issue. This book is not long enough to justify the extra costs.

    Earth has been invaded by a species that takes over the minds of human hosts while leaving their bodies intact. But Melanie Stryder refuses to fade away.

    Keith says: "Great story in a genre only touched upon before"
    "Slow paced. Tired storyline."
    Overall

    I found the book to be slow paced and frankly, boring. I had no issues with the reader. I frequently repeat listening to books I enjoy and can not imagine listening to this one again. Waste of credits for me.
