I am on the fence with this one. Maybe my expectations are getting too high because of other books that I have read. I did not dislike the book but it was just ok. I don't think there was enough intro into the relationship before the elevator scene came to play out. I think it needed more build up so we got the tension between Jeremiah and Lucy. I guess I did not get the spark at first. It got better as the storyline progressed but again it was ok. I know this book got great reviews and they are not wrong is saying it was good but I've liked other books better. However, it left me intrigued enough at the end that I will probably get the next book. It does have a unique plot line. I just hope the relationship grows more in depth during the next book. I hate that they are going be released as chapter chucks rather than the entire novel. Overall I gave it a middle of the road rating. Not bad but nothing exciting. I like books that have that anticipation between characters and the pull that they share. This book lacked a bit of that. I will still say it is a solid read so don't shy away but if you compare it to books, like Bared to You, Release Me or Backstage Pass I was left wanting a bit.
You have to love those Reapers! This was another great hit for me. I think that this biker gang really captivates you. It is totally believable and you get sucked right in. I love that both books have reoccurring characters but are still very different. The author explains the name thing, which I think many people questioned so now it really makes you see past the funny biker names. Sophie and Zack are a train wreck and you have to love how she has become a strong independent woman trying to take care of her son. She does not complain and does not easily fall into the biker life. Ruger is tough, funny, domineering and sexy. I like that he doesn’t just give up and that he continues to help even though she keeps sending him away. The chemistry was great and the dialogue between them was fun to listen to. I really enjoyed the biker woman and that even though they are “Property” they hold their own. It shows that you can be tough and taken care of all at the same time. Somehow the author takes this biker club and makes you understand the family connection and supportive atmosphere. Even though it is way out of my scope of reality you can still believe that this goes on. One thing I did not like was the male narrator’s voice. His female voice was not great and he did not sound rugged enough to play the part of Ruger. I would have changed that. This is a must read series and I cannot wait for more.
This was a really good book. I liked the storyline even though Evelyn Thomas was young. I guess this explains why she is weak at times. I wish her character was a bit stronger but understandable since she is so young and just trying to tap into her inner voice. David was also strong and determined and I like that he was willing to make concessions as well. I hope that she includes all the other characters in her books so we see how their lives unfold. I also like that she used common names and not off the wall stage names. I think the books will only get better from here. I like the characters and it was nice not to have the story all about being on a tour bus. I still think Olivia Cunning rocks this genre but this was a good contender. I am anxiously awaiting the next book in April. Worth the credit. You have to love rock starts!
I don’t know what this says about me or the book but I forgot I listened to it and so started it again. Then I realized that I had read it. (Shows you that either my memory is bad or the book was not worth remembering) It did not get better with a second attempt. If you have read Olivia Cunning's series, you will be seriously disappointed with this book. There is nothing exciting about it. The characters are boring with nothing to captivate you. Lane is weak and indecisive and this drove me nuts. Noel was just not enough of anything to keep you interested. Maybe I am being a bit hard but you cannot compare this with other books about rock stars. There was potential to be better but it fell short for me. I would not recommend this book for a credit. Maybe if you got it in the sale bin.
I got this book on sale so I think that is why it was not as disappointing as it could have been, if I used a credit. First of all I really like books about female dominant characters so was really hoping this would be a hit. It was SLOW. I thought about not finishing but had surgery and was stuck in bed so just kept plugging away. It did start to get better near the end but it took a while getting there. I am curious to see who Casper is but other than that plot line nothing really captivated me. I think there were a lot of holes in the storyline that could have been better explained. For example; you find out you are a vampire and you don’t freak out and have a million questions? You don’t try and figure out what your limitations are? Your house burns down and you don’t seem that upset. I did like the betrayal part of the book as the author did her best to keep you guessing. I think there is potential and maybe it will get better. I am just not sure if I will continue with this series or not. If you want an awesome series about dominant female vampire slayers, then read Jeaniene Frost. You will not be disappointed. For me this is a save your credit but if you can get it on sale for $4.95, like I did then give it a shot.
Although this book is about a tortured rock star it does not have the excitement of other books of this genre. Sienna and Lucas have chemistry and that was my favourite part. It did not have as much BDSM as it leads you to believe. I like the fact that they are not an easy paring. I like that she is struggling and although Lucas is rich it is not all about the money and extravagances in this book. I think this book as an easy listen and keeps your interest well enough. At times I did find it a bit slow and was just thinking ok get it over with. I do like books that have chemistry and anticipation in getting together. I am frustrated that we don’t know the secrete between Lucas and Sam. It is also frustrating that audible had the second book in the series and now does not. I would say wait and read it when the second book is available again. It is also cheap enough to buy vs using a credit. I got it on sale so was not disappointed.
I have to say that I am a little disappointed in this book. It might have been the narrator. It seemed that he was rushed when saying his lines. There were some really good lines and he just blended everything together. I also don’t understand why the author did not use someone with an accent. This just threw me off a bit. I really loved Caleb and Livie's story. This series really makes you think about things. The content is often dramatic, disturbing and yet captivates you. I think that if I did not listen to this book, I would have felt ok with the just the two books. I did like hearing more of Caleb and Livie's story and yet again the author writes from a different perspective. I really like that about this series. This book is done from Caleb’s point of view and I am glad that he is still broken as it is more realistic. If he was all put together overnight, then it would be disappointing. It is a good listen but not as great as the first two. This whole series was an amazing surprises and I am glad that I took other readers advice and gave it a listen.
This book was a winner for me. Although the content is still dark and disturbing, the writing is awesome. The author puts a different spin to telling this part of the story. She jumps from present day to flashbacks of the past and reliving what happens to Livvie. This was, at first, confusing as you almost felt like the story was not starting from where it left off. I love all the twists and turns to this book. Even though the subject matter is dark, the characters draw you in. You can feel the tension and connection between Livvie and Caleb. The hurt, anger and confusion comes through as each scene is being told. Livvie gets a bit stronger in this book but still remains vulnerable and broken at the same time. I love the way the author takes Caleb and shows two distinct personalities within him and how he is torn between betraying Livvie or the man who supposedly saved him. You see the good creeping out of him but then the dark side takes over. I never know if I like him or hate him and that just makes for a great story. This book has it all; deception, depravement, seduction, sex and twisted love. It is a must read.
It is amazing how this author can captivate you with a subject matter that is so dark. I think it is because you can really imagine this happening. She makes Libby strong but at the same time powerless. This has you struggling to understand why you love to hate this book. Caleb is so broken and dysfunctional that you at times want to shoot him and others think thank goodness he is caring. I like the adage in the book that it is better to stick with the evil you know. This is so true for Libby. This book is excellently written and keeps you interested from start to finish. I knew from other listener reviews that this was going to be about rape, kidnapping and somehow turn into a love story. I was just not sure if I would be like the others and love it. In the end I did loved it. I think it was all in the way the author wrote about the subject matter. The only criticism is that it just ended abruptly. I had to double check that I did not skip ahead in the book. If the other books were not out, I would be upset. This is so worth the credit if you can handle the content.
This had so much potential. I still don't like the narrator Rubyyy Jones. Her voice is just too young for this book. Rockwell Davis is just amazing as usual. Rubyyy’s voice is like a little girls and Rockwell is of a sophisticated man. They just did not fit together well. It is hard to believe but I think this book had too much sex and not enough plot. There was potential to really take the plot line of the two rivals Noah and David to a great place but alas it fell flat. The characters of Dez and Polly were hilarious and added some humour to the book. The love between Delaine Talbot and Noah Crawford was sweet but over done. At some points I found myself zoning out when the love scenes happened. They were just too frequent and after a while I was hoping for more plot and not another love scene. I did not understand when Noah let Delaine, Polly and Dez go into a very risky situation. It did not make sense. Who would do that? This book is good but could have been much better. I listened to the first book again and have to say it was better than the second one. I did not hate it but thought it could have been better.
This book was a good listen for me but not out of the park good. I liked the relationship between Tess and Brock/Jake. The sex scenes were good and hot. I like the fact that the author made a twist and included Brock’s kids in the story and Tess’ acceptance of them. I guess where it fell short for me was the storyline. It was just ok nothing too exciting. Having said that the book was still a solid listen and I will continue to follow this author. I guess if I compare this to other books like Reaper’s Property or the Chaos Novels I think it was not as good. Brock is a rough and sexy alpha male and Tess is a funny and spunky good girl but it just was good not great for me. I know other reviewers loved this and they do have a point. You won’t be disappointed it is a solid listen.
