I absolutely loooved the other books. This one...not so much. I had to hear that same old crap about Quin and Blay and Vishous and.... Wait a minute. It was supposed to be Paynes and Manello's book right? Wrong! Nothing against it but I really don't want to hear about someone struggling to come out of the closet. Nor did I believe why V had such anger management issues about somebody he knew all of.. what... 5 minutes. Probably my last book also. I thought the book left you with more questions and answers to other questions, I didn't want answered. J.R,Ward? Not happy. Not happy.
Not if they are like this one.
No. I have read some books along these lines and this was too much to take. Taking a girl you know is innocent and "forcing" her to "swallow" by grabbing her head is so beyond degrading. This dude wasn't even respectful. Beth was not very smart. She let this guy do anything to her with the excuse of being more open. So you need to disrespect yourself to be open? I kept finding myself fast forwarding because I was getting so pissed off. If this is Ms. Begley's picture of Biker life? No thanks! They seem to be a bunch of overgrown street gangs who are worse than rappers calling women bitches and ho's! Except, they are living it and these women just can't help but be attracted and drawn into their sexiness! WOW! Delusional!
Women who are into this sort of degredation. It just wasn't really romantic. I know Bikers are supposed to be hard-core, but, this type of disrespect just wasn't for me. It was difficult to listen to. Unlike "Motorcylce Man" by Kristin Ashley (which was excellent!), this is a little bit twisted. Horse, who was ex-Marine Corps, sure didn't show a lot of honor. No, he just showed a lot of rediculous anger.
I don't know.
Dissappointment. You want them to actually see something different in the women in their life or one they want to be. Other than a lot of sex, I couldn't see beyond her being a doormat and miss ditzy agreeable where no matter how degrading, all she wants to do is F@#$ him. I think the character needs counselling, not a romance book.
This is one of those "to each his own" type of books. I wouldn't waste my credits on it.
The heroin. She wasn't very likeable. Contrary can be okay but taken to the extreme gets tedious. She was very reckless and sad to say I was hoping for her to get shot and get a clue since she spent most of her time putting everyone in danger.
Change Indie's attitude. Not cute.
Yes and this on a scale of 1 to 10 gets a 3 from me.
The heroine gettting a clue to danger.
Not as good as her other series. I still think Motorcyle Man was the best book.
I believe if you are the type that gets off in introducing virginal people into orgies, wife swapping etc. Then this book is for you. I don't see this as the type of Romance for me.
Not really. The whole premise of the book was rediculous. Men coming to a planet and chasing women to find wifes then ties them down in a bondage manner with chains to consummate the "bond". Really?
Stella Bloom was okay but the book itself was ridiculous.
Anger, Sadness and disappointment that I wasted the first few hours on this ridiculous idea. This is just a book for those who just want to hear people who just want to hear the erotic portions since this is about 90 percent of the book. This book has no real substance or story line.
Don't waste your money or your credit on this book.
I liked the Narrator because she brought the characters to life. The problem is...you ever had one of those friends that talked and talked and talked and you come to the point where you kind of drift off wishing you could but in to either stop them talking or get them to back track? It started off well and two hours in, I wanted to kill the heroine. How could anybody be that annoying? There was the requisite too many misunderstandings that just got down right irritating. Not a whole lot of action. I got tired of the heroine constantly ready to believe everything negative. She might as well have given herself up to the bad guys in the beginning and saved the rest of us about seven hours of her repeating the same actions over and over again.
The heroine and replace her with someone who has a clue.
The book did have some good bantering but even that began to drone on. I really would have liked to see these characters work together instead of listening to a book full of the heroine talking to herself. Constantly. Of course she comes up with more wrong answers than right. The ending was a cliff hanger. I hate those. The fact that you won't find out the outcome of that story until book three was even more frustrating. It wasn't worth a credit. It's entertainment value lie in the narrators characterization of the characters. This is what saved me from returning the book for a refund.
I am not a very descriptive person but, WOW! I loved the Gargoyle angle. Right now everything seems to be centered on a Werewolf or Vampire. There are a mixture of races which gives me hope for this series. This is one of the few books that didn't point you to the answer in the first hour of the book and I enjoyed every minute of it. There were a lot of sub stories that didn't overwhelm the book or take over the story. There was just enough to let you know that there is a lot more going on than just this initial story. The heroine was a little weak, but her over protective family clearly showed you why. You get past that and the romance that builds between Terrick and Larrissa gives the story a chance to develop gradually instead of prematurely climaxing and throwing a lot of ridiculous misunderstandings in the way of an actual story. Or lots of sex. which is very irritating when you would like to understand the story itself. I liked it because I didn't have to spend 8 out of the 9 hours and 57 minutes listening the same sex positions in just about everyone's book. Thank you Danielle for giving us an actual tale to follow.!
When Terrick's warriors decided to follow him when the council in his Clan wavered on their loyalty to him.
I LOVE Tavia Gilbert. I buy most books narrated by her because she is very good at giving characters their own voices in the stories she narrates.
Clash of the Realms
I would recommend Danielle Monsch as an author to watch along with this series.
The action started immediately and continued throughout! I also loved Le'vay the gargoyle. What a surprise to have a funny and unexpected sidekick. He appeared often enough to keep you listening and laughing at is quips. I enjoyed Shay and Viper. Two alpha personalities constantly protecting the other. They were constantly denying their feelings for each other but their actions blatantly showed the opposite. Very enjoyable to see these two fall hard. Le'vay, although cowardly was just funny!
Surprisingly, this was the first time I didn't compare one of the other books I had read to this one.
This book was very misleading. It wasn't really a romance. Just because you have sex doesn't make it a romance. The questions about whether or not she was actually a descendent of Vlad Tapesh was very fuzzy?! Gwen was whiny and unsure of everything except that she really didn't care about her baby's father. One who came off as a weak punk because he loved her.
The most dissappointing one I have ever listened to. This book had no heart only the whiner that is Gwen because everything seemed to be about what she wanted to do. I was still looking for all the things she said about Alex in this book but never could find. Maybe it was in the portions that was cut out of the audio book. Truely a waste of my time and I strugged to finish it hoping it would get better or that they would have some kind of resolution.
Draggos was not afraid to let his feelings be known for his mate. I can't believe Pia would want him to big wuss, but it was cute how he softened up to her a lot. I also am so glad that he and Rune finally talked. I didn't like Rune's book because I didn't believe their friendship should have broken up over such a weak misinterpretation. Especially since they had been best friends for centuries.
Her voice impressions. It brought the other characters to life. The voice of Evie gave me pause but for the most part, they were good.
When he goes with his instincts to find her even though he promised to give her a week where she was.
I sure hope she has more of these coming soon because there are some serious new characters.
Fast! Exciting! Addictive!
When Mist was being interrogated by the police and could sense the dragons coming to get her.
No, but I thought he did a decent job with this story.
Not really. I just like the story line and how it was told. I am happy that it wasn't about vampires.
