I absolutely love Jacquelyn Frank's books and this one is no exception. It has everything I've come to expect in her books - good plot, entertaining characters, romance and steamy sex. Although this one isn't as "hot" as some of her others, I still enjoyed it.
I'm looking forward to book 3 (if it ever comes out?).
I loved this entire series. Laini Taylor is such a talented writer. It's like artistry on paper or ear candy for audible listeners. Her characters are deep with extensive world building - you can't help but get sucked into this fantasy she has created. I crave more and can only hope this is NOT THE END of such a wonderful series. Thank the God Stars, but I really want more!!!
Definitely a 5 star listen!!!!
I don’t know what it is about this series but I was hooked from book 1. This is definitely one of my guilty pleasures. The final installment of "The Selection" may have been predictable but I so enjoyed the journey. Kiera Cass is a very talented author and I look forward to more of her books.
This was a credit-worthy, 5 star listen. Good story, great narration and that cover art is perfection!
Plain and simple I loved this book! It's everything you've come to expect from a JR Ward BDB book. I'm amazed after 12 installments I still find these characters interesting and enjoyable. (unlike other vamp series) Kudos to the brilliant author and fantastic narrator. Keep 'em coming!!
I love Kristen Ashley books, but I did not love this one. It was actually boring (I can't believe I said that about a KA book) and it took some time for me to "care" about the main characters. I just couldn't connect with Lanie and Hop as a couple. It wasn't a bad story, but I found myself stopping this book to do other things like watch tv, read some paperbacks, mall shopping, etc. If I can let a book go for a couple of days and not care about finishing it....well, you know what that means.
Sadly, I was disappointed.
I don’t enjoy writing negative reviews, but this book was a huge disappointment for me. I love Lauren Oliver’s writing and her Delirium Trilogy is one of my favorites. However, this book was far from being a favorite for me.
At first the story was very promising and there was certainly a thrill factor that perfectly fit the title. Unfortunately it went downhill very quickly and overall was just plain boring. I couldn’t sympathize with the characters and most of the plotline I found completely implausible. I get it - Panic is a game born out of small-town boredom, but most of the “tasks” were just reckless and stupid. Nothing was done out of bravery or honor.
I’m giving this one 2.5 stars for two simple reasons. Lauren Oliver’s writing style is superb and Sarah Drew’s narration is always exciting and engaging. Sadly, I wish I could say the same about the actual book.
I love these hot biker books and the Reapers MC is one of my favorites. Although this wasn't as good (or crazy) as Reaper's Property, it did have it's shocking moments. I loved visiting characters from the first book and learning more about the MC. My only complaint was the dual narration. It just didn't add any value or increase the listening experience for me. Overall this is a great listen for fans of MC romance.
If you are a fan of the Selection Trilogy then this is a great little nugget to get before the release of "The One". It doesn't add anything new to the storyline but it does give an inside look into the mind of Maxon (the prince) and Aspen (the guard). Not to mention the sneak peek section is well worth the purchase. This was a quick and enjoyable listen.
Overall I really enjoyed the entire Professional “series” and thought Kresley Cole’s writing was excellent. However, I didn’t enjoy the way this book was released in a serial format. In my opinion it made the story too choppy and created unnecessary cliffhangers. If there is a spin-off of The Game Makers, I will wait until the entire book is released. Otherwise, I thought the overall story, narration and writing were excellent.
Much like the other 2 books, this one was all sorts of crazy! There was so much drama that it made my head spin. And Jesse "The Lord of the Manor" Ward is the craziest man ever! And of course that just added to all the drama. Although I'm glad we got answers in this book, I still didn't think it justified all of Jesse's actions. However, the story was alot of fun and I enjoyed the epilogue so much. It was very funny! This was a great ending to one hot mess of a couple.
4.5 stars for an enjoyable listen.
Hands down my favorite book so far of 2014. I loved this one, but it’s so hard to describe what type of book it actually is…Sci-Fi? Romance? Mystery? Dystopian Fiction? This book had everything including jaw-dropping plot twists and turns.
I’m deliberately going to be very vague with this review so I don’t spoil any of the brilliant details of this book. The overall plot was not exactly new but it was presented with a fresh and unique perspective. From the very first chapter to the last I was hooked on this one and could not stop listening. Some might consider the middle of this book a little slow but it was essential to the build-up of the mystery. I thought I had this one all figured out but I couldn’t have been more wrong. I love it when a book surprises me.
I can’t wait until Prototype is release this summer. Thankfully this is not a trilogy and I won’t have to wait a whole year to get the conclusion to this stunning and sensational story!
5 HUGE stars!
