A believable story, better written characters, a consistency editor, an editor in general ...
- the police doesn't include civilians in their investigations if they can avoid it. They don't share information about ongoing cases, they don't let civilians question the criminals, etc ... highly irritating.
- Claire repeatedly says she's not happy with her bodyshape (too much curves, not at all perfect, blabla) - but the bodybuilder guy at the ICE mistakes her for a fitness model?
- All of the protagonists switch between self-assured and completely insecure, without warning.
- Claire confides to Matteo that she spied on her daughter for all of her adolescence - not ok.
I could go on and on, but this book probably shouldn't have been published in the first place.
I don't know if there is anything she could have done, other than not write this book.
The narrator has a good voice, good pronunciation, she was easy to understand and follow and it's not her fault that the book is an utter waste of time and money.
Where to start ... Alicia, Maya, Aphrodite, all the very bitchy arrogant "ladies" that behave like total lunatics. Oh wait, then I'd have to cut Claire too - who walks into a trap like this without informing the police?? "come alone, only you will be admittet" - yeah sure ...
I bought this in the "this is the first of a series" sale - in fact is book number 10 in this series, which accounts for some of the confusion at the start of the book.
Getting a better written story? Where people actually have personality? This book feels like a slightly more porn-y version of Twilight, no story, no personalities, no plot, no nothing
No one, as this story shouldn't have been published as a book, let alone an audiobook. Piper isn't at fault, with this material she couldn't have done any better.
NO. A whiney, brainless, self-absorbed girl falls in love with a little-bit-vampire, who is brooding and sinister and about to die and needs to make a baby before. Is S.C. Stephens a pseudonym for Stepheny Meyer? This book is about equally as lifeless as Twilight ...
I want my credit back for this garbage. And I'd like to question the sanity of the Audible staff who put this out there as a fun, light summer listen, paranormal romance ... There's no romance in it, it's just badly written porn. It's not fun, it's not light, it's a desperate story about a 19 year old agreeing to have a baby with a vampire just to continue his "line" - whom he seems to loathe anyway ... *argh* Why aren't there any good books anymore?
