    The heroine in this book was way to whiny at times and so ignorant. The hero was not what I would call romantic. But I went along with this book. The narrator was ok. I did not particularly like ther narration of the hero.. She made him sound so slow and his conversations wer choppy. I was read the book and took me about 3 days to get through it. This was not the worst book I have listened to but far from the best... So I gave it 3 stars.

    Graced with the ability to shift into any form, Diskant Black is the absolute authority when it comes to New York shifters, and as the Omega of the city, his word is law. Protecting the shifter races is more than a job, it's a predisposition ingrained since birth - nothing is more important. Until a chance encounter with a tiny female sets fire to his blood, brings him to his knees and turns his world upside down. Ava Brisbane is more than he bargained for in a mate - beautiful, fragile...human.

    Story

    Being relatively new to the paranormal books, I have been binge listening on shifter book after shifter book...This one had me melted and stuck to it!

    D is an Omega- the ultimate shifter, able to change into any animal. Born in a wolf pack he was chosen as the omega in his teens. His job is to keep the shifters on NYC in check-easier said than done! While he was doing his thing one night, he happened to interfere with a vamp kidnapping....it just so happens that the woman he saves, Eva, is well his mate!

    Eva is something more than human..she has the abilities that she doesn't fully understand and so she has them buried deep in her. With her parents taken away from her too soon and a brother who is an utter fuck up and constantly trying to cause her pain... it's just her luck that she is the supposed mate of a shifter..and not just a regular shifter an freakin omega..though she is convinced he is wrong; she cannot deny the pull that she feels for him...

    As D and Eva finally get together to begin the inevitable bonding process...Everything goes wrong, The Shepherds are in town! When the Shepherds are in town, they have one aim and one aim only to eradicate a supernatural species completely... Now D and Eva are front and center in this war, which is a huge inconvenience since they have just started the bonding process which makes them both very vulnerable....

    Aside from dealing with this immediate threat, Eva's past & future is a whole other matter with may unanswered questions and has not only the shifters interested, but vampires and mages have a vested interest....The entire scope cannot be covered in just one book....War is coming....the Sheperds have cast the first stone...I am looking forward to the war...I am also looking forward to getting to the heart of the matter on what 'the fallen' have in store for the supernatural world!

    Worth a credit? Heck yeah....hot-decliciousness is a given but what caught me was the story line...Every turn is addictive and mesmerizingly good... Soooo good I bought this book today, finished it today and purchased book 2 right after!

    When Evangeline Hollis spent a night of passion with the darkly seductive Alec Cain, she had no idea that she'd be punished for it years later. Branded with the Mark of Cain, Eve was thrust into a life of hunting demons as penance. Living with the Mark - and the two sexy brothers who come with it - was trouble enough. But then Eve ran over Satan’s hellhound during training. Now Satan, incensed at the loss of his pet, has put a bounty on Eve's head, and every demon in the country wants to be the one to deliver her.

    Eve, Eve, Eve... only you would incite Satan's ire that there is a bounty on your head!

    Book 3, starts of with Eve having FINALLY, successfully graduated from training and performing her duties wonderfully...Except she seems to be on assignment way to much for her liking. It is during one assignment that she find out that she is so busy because there is a price on her head! all inferno are migrating towards her will one purpose and one purpose only to kill her...

    Throw in meeting the devil, and meeting Cain & Abel's parents plus trying to deal with Cain's new role as an Archangel and his new personality and finally giving in completely to her feeling for Abel..makes this another book filled with so many answered question...too much treachery....a deal with the devil.... and a finish that made me want to weep!

    At the end there are a fee loose ends that I hope are address in Eve of Warfare and Eve of Sin City.... I am hoping that audible will be picking these 2 up soon otherwise i will be purchasing the books! I have to know...I just have to!

    Despite the ending... The events are all tied up and makes for a riveting listen! Once again I did not regret spending my credit on this book!

    Class is in, but Evangeline Hollis is struggling to get through the requisite training to be a full-fledged Mark. When her class goes on a field trip to an abandoned military base, passing the course isn’t just a matter of pride...it’s a matter of life and death. There’s a demon hidden among them, killing off Eve’s classmates one by one. As the body count mounts, a ragtag team of cable TV ghost hunters unwittingly stumbles into the carnage. Now keeping the Mark system secret competes with the need to keep the "paranormal researchers" alive.

    Having somehow woken up after being sure she was dead and hell-bound, Eve picks up from where she left off. Being unable to shake the feeling that there are too many unanswered question from the events that have led her here...Eve, is finally in training and having a heck of a time getting through the 7 weeks as well as trying to juggle the 2 men in her life and still maintaining the semblence of normality for her mortal family!

    After Marks start dying, and a new species of inferno never seen before is identified as responsible. The trio - Eve, Cain & Abel - find themselves pulled in different directions based on the tasks they have been assigned.

    Eve is once again front & center of the huge dilemma and she is not willing to step aside and let the men in her life take care of things. In fact, She is more than willing to jump right in and deal with the situation despite the fact she still has no clue how to do her job!

    The question is who done it? and How to undo it?

    Filled with energy, mystery, drama, and a whole lot of well identified characters...This was a great book 2! Definitely worth my credit!

    Years ago, Evangeline Hollis spent a blistering night with a darkly seductive man she can’t forget. But that evening of addictive pleasure has become a disaster of biblical proportions: She’s been branded with the Mark of Cain. Now Eve is thrust into a world where sinners are marked and drafted to kill demons. Her former one-night stand, Cain, is now her mentor - and his equally sexy brother Abel is her new boss.

    Story

    Over the years of being an audible listener I have always stuck to historical listens or contemporary listens. I have never once ventured into the paranormal listen until the Marked series.

    Sylvia Day made be a loyal reader once I listened to the crossfire series. After book 3...i realized I didn't want to start another series since crossfire left me hanging. I wanted to switch gears to a different listen to take my mind of the sour feeling of being left hanging...I decided to flip through SD's bookshelf and stumbled on the Marked series..I was skeptical i would get through the first few minutes but figured what the heck, worst case I could request to return the book? Let me say, SD awakened a new sort of interest with this listen!

    Given I loved Jill Redfield in the Crossfire series, I figured she was a safe bet to walk me through breaking into this category of listens! And what a splendid job she did!

    I loved Eve and her strong, formidable personality. At 18, without knowing it, she was destined to be marked simply because she was to much temptation to Cain- son of Adam & Eve. I will say at the beginning I was a bit lost, I kept stopping wondering if this was the first book. Get through the first 2 chapters and it will make sense!

    10 years later, Eve is about to answer for her unknowing crime, and of course just to keep things interesting, Abel - Cain's brother - is the one to deliver the punishment in a very unusual and utterly heated way.

    Now, the adventure begins with Eve trying to figure out what she is, why she was punished, questioning thing far beyond her comprehension and realizing everything she knew as a mortal and all her desires as a mortal are nothing compared with the path her life has taken now. Along for the ride are the lover she once fell head over heels for Cain and another man she can't quite make what to do with - Abel. Along the way she battles different species that seem to really want her dead barely hours after she is marked!

    The worldwide phenomenon continues as Eva and Gideon face the demons of their pasts and accept the consequences of their obsessive desires.... From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I also saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside - so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat. No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I’d been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become.

    I was a bit hesitant when I started this listen, the reviews were less that stellar but I bought it anyway.

    I am really invested in Gideon and Eva, love can make people do crazy things.... and love can heal some wounds that cut deep.. This was really about Gideon's demons and Eva's journey to fight to heal his demons... Have to say the sex was a bit much in this book but not enough to take away from the story...

    I like how the author did not make marriage the definition of HEA! That the battle is still going... This book is written as a daily account verses jumping through month of time....which works at least for me!

    There are still many unanswered questions...If Corinne was desperately in love with Gideon, why did she leave? What has her spinning out of control.. What about Bret? what does he have up his sleeve... Gideon's family is still a mystery... and what is Gideon's mother hiding? and who covered up Gideon's 'dramatic act of love' for Eva? ohh.. and Cary's love triangle...WTF was that?....Yep many, many question left unanswered...

    Looking forward to the remaining 2 or 3 books... I have never been a fan of slow developing books.. but I must admit why would I want this to end when at every turn something new and significant pops up and draws me back in! I actually enjoy the pace of this book.. Its my very own sort of soap opera!

    I would say definitely worth my credit, however, many should be aware this series has I think 5 or 6 books which can be a tough listen for many people!

    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

    **Stop reading, if you have listened to Book 1 then....just skip to the last statement***

    I was a bit frustrated by this book... but i think that was the idea! Even so, I loved every minute of it...

    Picking up from Book 1, Gideon and Eva still try to navigate the rough road of their relationship. Gideon and his constant need to control Eva didn't sit well with me... I loved the Vegas moment when Gideon put a female bodyguard on Eva and kept every known man from her and as her revenge she has a sumo bodyguard hired for Gideon and his job was to keep EVERY woman 3 feet away from Gideon while he was WORKING ....

    Once again putting 2 messed up people together is sometimes not a good idea... as was evident when during one mutual happening episode, Gideon almost hurts Eva while they are sleeping!

    I am looking forward to the love triangle between Evan, Gideon and Bret to get juicy...Bret is not going away! Good things to look forward to in book 3.

    Once again Cary has me wondering what his story is and why he is determined to destroy his perfect relationship with Trey!

    I always thought if a man stated he would kill for me... it would be the sexiest thing with tons of fuzzy feelings.. and my oh my Gideon's words are crude, deep, hot and all things male I can imagine...But the ending had me thinking 'he did what?....like NOOOO...like seriously...and she said what? Run Eva... just RUN!'

    At the end we close with Gideon and Eva having learnt to trust each other and Gideon admiting that he loves Eva after sharing a huge part of his past... Now what? looking forward to Book 3...Dealing with the aftermath of what Gideon did... Gideon's ex and her meddling... his family... the Damn doctor....and Bret!

    Yes, Yes, YES!! Worth a credit, but I bought this for $10..Either way just buy the book!

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    The idea of dom/sub takes on an entirely new meaning in this book.

    Gideon and Eva both have the same type demons... Only Eva is more open to communicating about her past than Gideon is... At the end on this Book, Gideon is still a mystery...

    When 2 damaged people know that they really should not be together... but can't keep away from each other... It makes the story more bitter-sweet. An emotional roller-coaster that had me rooting for the success of this bad-idea mistake.

    I loved Cary, and would really love to know his story..

    The narration is marvelous and Jill was a perfect choice for this hot, sexy and captivating read!

    Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.

    From the moment I began reading this book, I was laughing so hard iI forgot everything around me!

    Clive, the cat was epic... His love for Purina was epic...and loved his thoughts at the end! Can't wait for the next book and his views about "his people"

    OK. Enough about the cat! This was a sweet romance!

    I was utterly entertained by Caroline and her quest for 'O' only to find that the one person who could get her rocks off was her next door neighbor aptly named 'wallbanger'

    Simon on the other hand, having never been in a normal relationship because of his career finds that banging his 'harem' doesn't do it for him anymore... all he wants is Caroline.

    A huge part of the book is comical tales as the two tiptoe around each other... and when they finally get on the same page... they play games..winding them up all for the promise of 'delayed gratification!'

    The secondary characters were amazing, the antics and loves stories were touching and a nice bonus...

    Can't wait to see what Caroline and Simon do in the next book!

    I would say definitely worth a credit.

    Words just can't describe this book enough. Though I felt the romance was a bit rushed, it is definitely a different kind of messed up love. This is not a book for anyone looking for a light book filled with laughter and romance and all. This is mostly a very dark book in my opinion that makes you keep at it even when you really feel like you should stop.

    I wouldn't say use a credit on this... if fact I actually bought it for $3 and change...It was a short entertaining read to pass time during a flight...

But Marie just left her abusive jerk of an ex-husband and she's not looking for a new man. Especially one like Horse - she doesn't know his real name or where he lives, she's ninety percent certain he's a criminal and that the "business" he talks with her brother isn't website design.
