Awesome story which makes you twist and squarm in your seat. I will definitely listen to this story again, just to relive the stories the guy is telling of all of his conquests. Worth the credit!
This story is about a vampire/cat shape shifter named Ty who's considered to be part of a low quality blood race who serves a high quality blood race queen that is in search of a seer. He comes across a professor named Lily who has no idea that she's the decendent of a extint powerful race. She's identified by a mark (tattoo) on her chest that verifies she's a seer but she doesn't know how powerful she is.
Overall the story is slow. The first half of the story is about Ty trying to get Lily back to his queen but they fall in love with each other and he reconsiders taking her back because his friends speculate that the queen has alterior motives that may result in Lily's death. Of course Ty doesn't want Lily to be in danger now that he loves her but it's too late and Lily is captured. The climax of the story is at the very end but the book still didn't peak my interest. I was finding myself saying, "get on with it already" so I can get to the very end to see what happens. The whole shape shifting, low/high blood race thing was unnecessary. If the characters were just vampires and seers then it still would've made sense. But I guess if vampires are to shape shift into bats, why not cats too?
This is an awesome romance story with a bit of magic thrown in. I love historical romance novels but sometimes it gets boring. This book, however, is not boring and throwing the magic into the story keeps the listener hooked and then becomes a fantasy/historical/romance story! The love story is not typical or boring and it keeps you entralled to finish it all at once. I hated to pause this story in because it was so good. The narrator is good as well. Overall a must add to your library. Can't wait to hear the next book.
I love KC's IAD series for all it's intense love scenes and paranormal activity, however, this series are for Young Adult readers in which the love scenes are dyed down into high school romances and the paranormal activity is increased by a different set of magical taro cards that describe mystical characters...too many characters.
During the first part of the book the story hooks you in by this guy acting as a hospitiable host but really he's a psycho mad scientist that traps innocent girls in the basement and uses them for experiments. When he lures Evie into his house she tells him a story about how she survives "the Flash" which is a apocalypse that wipes out Earth and is left with boogie men (vampire like creatures) and rebellious armies of canabils or wannabe soldiers. Evie and her beau struggle to survive the aftermath of distruction but she gets seperated from him and tries to find her way back to her grandmother who might have the answers as to why she predicted the Flash and how she developed certain powers. She finds bits and pieces of her grandma's tales of how she's a part of these taro cards and how there's a war coming in which she has to choose sides and fight.
Evie's first part of her back story is totally irrelevant to the whole story and just added more unnecessary characters. Evie is protrayed as a young, naive gal who had high school friends that were eliminated during the flash. The rest of the story after the flash is relevant and only describes bits and pieces of the 22 taro characters who's either friend or foe.
It's an overall good story but drawn out at some parts. I'm debating on whether or not to go forward to the next book or return this one. This book didn't keep my attention like her other series did.
If you like steamy sex scenes, dominant male, and intense love matching, this is the book for you. The narrator is the same as the Crossfire Novels by Sylvia Day and she delivers an intense story that makes you squirm in your seat. If you enjoy an intense romantic novel, it is worth the money for hours of entertainment.
This is not a typical love story of a poor girl who sits around and then all of a sudden lands a Duke husband. This is an adventure story where a poor girl wins the Duke husband with her wit and brave character as they go on an adventure to find her brother Tristan and the Duke's brother Peter. I enjoyed this story from start to finish and could hardly put my headphones down. The character Lizette is an outspoken young lady who isn't afraid to speak her mind. I found that very enjoyable since for the historical time, women are often portrayed as weak, shy, or intimidated by man's rank or attitude but not Lizette. From the start she's smart and stands up for herself and her brothers' reputation to a Duke and slowly wins his affections. Well worth the credit and the narration is excellent.
I was anticipating the release of book 5 and now I can't wait for book 6! I love this series! Charlie is at it again with her ADD tendencies by taking on multiple cases, dealing with the upcoming apocalypse, dealing with her hot son of Satan lover, and getting beat up all the time by crazies. It's not hard to follow if you've read the previous books 1-4. The book brushes up on what happens in the past but to really understand Charlie's crazy past, I suggest listening to books 1-4 first. My favorite parts of the book is the Chapter titles like, ..."I'm currently unsupervised. It freaks me out too but the possibilities are endless" or "Whoever's in charge of making sure I don't do stupid sh** is fired" or "my goal in life is to have a psychiatric disorder named after me". Love it! Keep rockin' on Darynda Jones. You're keeping me fully entertained with Charlie's crazy antics.
These are good stories, but alas, they're only short stories of Hot Vampires falling in love. If you like Molly Harper's books, then you'll like this one. It's a good book but I wish the stories were longer.
This is another one of Kresely Cole's masterpieces! It's an automatic download when it comes to the IAD series. I can't rave enough about these books. KC is a fairy tale genious when it comes to creating these characters. Robert Petkoff so amazing at narrating MacRieve's Scottish Burr that it makes me melt every time I listen to the stories with the Lycae clan. I can't wait for the next book when Hot hunts for Hotter. Keep them coming KC & RP!
I was anticipating the release of this book, thinking that it is the conclusion of the series, however, it's not and it should've been because I've grown tired of these characters and their drama...it's more drama than love story anymore. I re-listened to book 1 & 2 to remember what all happened so I can prepare myself for the continuation of this story. I couldn't remember why I loved these series and I guess because books 1 & 2 had really hot & steamy sex scenes and built up the characters, but now that I re-listened to these books I found myself rolling my eyes as in, really, why did I ever like this series?! Eva's character is so jealous and possessive of her man Gideon and accuses him of cheating all the time, but then she put's herself in uncomfortable situations that can lead to disaster. She's always questioning Gideon's fidelity yet she's kisses her ex-boyfriend in book 2? And then in this book, she marrys Gideon (don't worry I didn't spoil it much) but then plans to fly back to San Diego to meet with her ex-boyfriend again! She's just asking for trouble. How can she be content with Gideon but she puts herself in danger all the time whether it's emotionally or physically. I'm emotionally drained myself after listening to this book. If you like Sylvia Day then I reccommend her Renegade Angels series. I wish she would continue down that series than have 2 more books of this one.
I love the combo of Molly Harper's books and Amanda Ronconi's voice narrating her books. You're left with a witty, magical love story that had me feeling gitty after listening to it. Nola Leary travels from Ireland to the Hollow in Kentucky to find her mystical family treasures. Those treasures happen to be hidden in plain sight at Jane Jameson's occult bookshop. The story gets predictable towards the end when Nola thinks she's at a lost with finding the treasures in time but she's a smart cookie figuring out her family's past and alas, solving the puzzle. I wish the story had a more solid ending after it was all said and done. MH should've written an epilogue to finish the story of Nola's travels and happy ending. You'll see what I mean if you listen to it. It was worth the credit in my opinion because I'm a M.Harper fan, but if you haven't read her previous books, you'll be kind of lost with the back story of the characters. I reccommend started from the beginning of the series and working your way down to this one.
