  • Succubus Dreams: Georgina Kincaid, Book 3

    Some days, a girl just can't catch a break......especially when the girl in question is Georgina Kincaid, a shape-shifting succubus who gets her energy from seducing men. First there's her relationship with gorgeous best-selling writer Seth Mortensen, which is unsatisfying on a number of levels. It's not just that they can't have sex in case Georgina inadvertently kills him (generally a turn-off for most guys). Lately, even spending time together is a challenge.

    I love this series. Very entertaining and light. Makes you keep wanting to listen to all of them. Going to be bummed when there is no more to listen to. Great books to escape with!

    Sabina Kane doesn't really fit in. And being an assassin doesn't help matters. But she's never brought her work home. Until now. Sabina's latest mission is uncomfortably complex and threatens the fragile peace between the vampire and mage races. As she scrambles to figure out which side she's on, she uncovers a tangled political web, some nasty facts about her family, and some unexpected new talents. Any of these things could be worryingly life changing, but together they could be lethal.

    Would you try another book from Jaye Wells and/or Cynthia Holloway?

    I might but I would have to read it myself. The narrator was terrible. I just couldn't listen to her voice. It was so cheesy like listening to a radio announcer.


    Would you recommend Red-Headed Stepchild to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not the audio version


    Would you be willing to try another one of Cynthia Holloway’s performances?

    Absolutely not.


    What character would you cut from Red-Headed Stepchild?

    none

    Instead of saying "I do" to Mr. Irresistible, Lucy Jorik hitches a ride on the back of a beat-up motorcycle with a rough looking, bad-tempered stranger who couldn't be more foreign to her privileged existence. While the world searches for her, Lucy must search for herself, and she quickly realizes that her customary good manners are no defense against a man who's raised rudeness to an art form. Lucy needs to toughen up - and fast. Her great escape takes her to his rambling beach house on a Great Lakes island. Here, she hopes to find a new direction...and to unlock the secrets of this man who knows so much about her.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I am a huge fan of this author and have patiently been waiting for her next book.What a disappointment. There wasn't much comedy/romance it was just blah. I was hoping for another Dream a LIttle Dream or Natural Born Charmer which made me laugh out loud and there was chemistry between the main characters. This book was more of a public announcement about troubles in our world.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It was OK, but way to drawn out.


    What three words best describe Shannon Cochran???s performance?

    She is not Anna Fields but she does OK. Her Lucy voice was a little to whiny.


    Could you see The Great Escape being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Absolutely not


    Any additional comments?

    Please don't let Susan Elizabeth Phillips be out of writing material.

    Cassandra Palmer can see the future and communicate with spirits - talents that make her attractive to the dead and the undead alike. The ghosts of the dead aren't usually dangerous; they just like to talk...a lot. The undead are another matter. Like any sensible girl, Cassie tries to avoid vampires, but when the bloodsucking mafioso she escaped three years ago finds Cassie again with vengeance on his mind, she's forced to turn to the vampire Senate for protection.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    A different narrator. This person is so monotone I couldn't focus on the story. I kept tuning out. Couldn't even finish the book.

    no


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    no


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Very monotone the different characters need to have better voices


    Do you have any additional comments?

    To bad I wasted a credit!

    You can run from the grave, but you can't hide. Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She's still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her. But when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.

    The narrators voice gets irritating very quickly. The story is very weak and cheesy. Richelle Mead's books are much better. I thought I would try this series will I was waiting for another Mead book to come out. Big disappointment and waste of money.
