As others, I got this book in the sale bin and took a chance. I was not disappointed. This book is written differently than typical vampire books. There is humour, love and suspense. I absolutely loved the way Iolanthe or IO talks to herself and to Nikola. There mind to mind conversations are hilarious. It is a unique spin on love and romance. There are really cute sexual references and some love scenes but it all makes you smile. I love the way the author has conversations within conversations. Iolanthe starts babbling and then interrupts her own tirade with funny sexual thoughts. If you are into erotic scenes, this will miss the mark but I think the characters are so unique that you will love it regardless. This book is number 10 in the series and I did not know it but you can read it on its own and not be lost by the story. It makes me curious as to how her other books are. If I was going to make a comparison to another book I read, it would be like the Molly Harper books. Funny, quirky but a really enjoyable read. The narrator was great. I will look for more books read by her. She had a lot of accents to produce along with Victorian speech and did not miss the mark. She brought this book to life. I am saying a definite yes to this book.
This is a fantastic book. Set in a futuristic time. There are so many things going on that it's sometimes confusing but that is just part of the story line. This book keeps you on your toes and keeps you guessing as to who is the good guy and who is the bad guy. Emma has no memory but hears voices in her head. There is a creepy doctor who you are not sure you can trust. Her husband Declan is hiding something and seems like a jerk but he loves her and treats her so well that you don't know if he is good or bad. Emma remembers another man but does not know who he is but is drawn to him. She is not sure if her visions and memories are real or not. This book has suspense, love, deception and drama. It is an amazing story.
This is a continuation of Camryn and Andrew's romance. They have made the decision to change their destiny and life just keeps getting in the way. The events that happy are totally believable. You can see how it is so easy to get moving in the wrong direction. Andrew sees that Camryn is going down a bad path and if he is to save their relationship and Cam he needs to get them back to where they were on the road. This part of the story encompasses their journey and how they refuse to take the path 99% of couples take. This is a great romance novel that is sweet and just an easy listen. There is no over the top sex scenes or huge dramatic events but is not boring either. It is written a bit like S.C. Stephen books. I do like that that author chose to have a dual narration. She does change the female narrator but it works.
I know that some have reviewed this book as slow. I agree to a point. It is a love story told through many years of their lives. However, it was a beautiful love story. Cam and Andrew have ups and downs just like any couple. Their story makes you laugh and cry. There is just something about the two of them that keep you listening. You want to find out what will happen next. Cam is young and confused but knows that her current life is not what she wants. She does not know what she wants but then meets Andrew. He is running away from his troubles and feels an immediate connection to Cam. Together the set off to change their destiny. The thing I like about this book is that it is not so over the top with events that happen to Cam and Andrew, that you can still imagine yourself in their place. This is a romance story that will not disappoint. It reminds me a bit of S.C. Stephens books.
One thought that is not conflicting in my mind is that the narrator is absolutely horrible. She is all breathy and high pitched. She totally killed this book. So that is why I am on the fence. I think there was a lot of potential for this book but am not sure if I was just too critical due to the narrator or my expectations. I have never ready Lindsay Sands before but heard lots of positive talk about her books so thought I would give it a go. I think it was a really unique idea to have a fainting vampire. I do think that the humour in the story was lost in translation by the narrator. I also agree with other reviewers that the love at first site was a bit too fast and over the top. It is hard to fully buy in. However, I think that there is room for positive improvement so am willing to give the next book a try before I cast judgement on the series. Overall it was just ok for me. I have certainly read better.
There was very little depth to this story. The falling in love in two days was a bit hard to believe. There are no twists or turns to this book. It is plain old boring! Yes there are sex scenes that get steamy but after the first few you can just tune them out. The characters of Natalie and Luke are just dull. The narration is a bit to young and mousy for my taste. I was expecting more and must say I am disappointed. Sometimes it is good to listen to a book that is just a lighthearted romance but usually the characters are exciting or you just get sucked into the story. There is nothing like that in this book. I am trying to figure out how a series could possibly be made from this book. Save your credit and try something else.
I love Sylvia Day but this book just does not measure up in my opinion. It is a bit boring and seems choppy. The characters Jack and Gia have a lot of chemistry between them but I did not get how he just walks back into her life and then they start having sex again. Gia seems to have a good head on her shoulders and is tough. You would think she would not forgive so easily. I felt like the story was a bit choppy and did not always flow well. I did not really get Gia's job and Chad's part seemed off in the story line. Overall I was not impressed. I noticed that others did not like the narrator. I don't think she did a bad job, I think it was the Jersey accent that started to wear on my nerves after a while but not due to the narrator herself. I think just listening to the accent played by anyone would be annoying after a while. In the end I don't think this was the best of Sylvia Day.
I got this book based on reviews and was not disappointed. It had me laughing and kept my interest all the way through. Although the premise of the book is unrealistic, you can't help but want it to work. Mia and Ansel are a great couple. I love the fact that she is embarrassed at all the right moments. The story line has enough going on that you do not need over the top drama constantly. I hope that the Christina Lauren brings back all the characters throughout the stories so we see what is happening to them. Overall a very enjoyable easy read.
I am not one to not finish listening to a book but this one is just killing me. The narrator is so boring that I realize I have tuned out while listening. I can't seem to get beyond chapter 3 as it has not caught my interest. Honestly, it is like listening to the narrator read a Curious George and the Man in the Yellow Hat book. (probably dating myself). So far the only good thing is that I got this book in a BOGO deal. I am not feeling the connection between the two main characters and the story seems to jump around and does not flow well. Maybe I will try again later.
I am so glad that she finished with each character and got them all married off, except for Trey Mills and his partners. I was confused at the beginning because I felt like the first half of the book really was a repeat of the first book. It did not really have any new scenes in it. I did like how all the characters were in this book and that you got the happily ever after you wanted. However, out of all of her books this was my least favourite. I guess I was expecting more excitement. In the end I still rate this book high for the simple fact that I love these characters and anytime I can have more of them is a good time for me.
This book takes your further into the story of Lilly and JS. The book has mystery and suspense. It will take you to the reaches of your comfort level as it deals with kidnapping and to some extent rape. This is not usually the content I enjoy but for some reason I cannot put this book down. The author does an amazing job of drawing you in and although the subject matter is not comfortable she makes you hang on every word. I think it is really well written and I cannot wait to see where she takes these characters. Again my only complaint would be that the book is so short and I don't want to waist a credit on it so I buy them.
