    Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems to be within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another....

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have already to several of them. I really hope that they read it. I have recommended this series to people but I have never been so pushy about, "Oh you've GOT to read this book." as I am about this one. I'm going to listen again, and reread it and then read it again. I suggest you do the same.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's a wonderful, powerful book about people and how they love. How really messed up people can get by their families and eventually learn to over come it, to pull through and get everything they deserve.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    OH so many. I think maybe the argument between Blay and Qhuinn in the hallway outside the clinic room was one that made me almost get in trouble on my commute to work when I had to stop and say "Wow" and another commuter ran into me. And then of course in the bar at the end when the two of them had a talk and came to learn what they meant to each other finally. You find yourself screaming, "JUST SAY IT!"


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Oh yes. I did it all, laughed, cried, stood in shock, screamed, was afraid for some of them, wished for some of them, this book careens you through the emotional palette like a snowball rolling down hill. And it leaves you both very satisfied and wanting a lot more when it's done.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the second book I ever listened to. I loved the narrator. He did an excellent job of portraying all the characters and emphasizing each part of the story with just the right inflection.

    Do yourself a favor. Get this book, open your mind, and open your heart to the Black Dagger Brotherhood. It is well worth it on every level.

    Leila's psychic abilities have been failing her, and now she isn't sure what the future holds. If that weren't enough, her lover, Vlad, has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she's also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold-shoulder treatment forever - especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won't admit that he loves her.... Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes.

    If you could sum up Twice Tempted in three words, what would they be?

    You're so vain.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Twice Tempted?

    The end! I actually had to go to the book store and look up the book and verify that it actually ended that way and the audio version didn't end in the middle of the book somewhere. Worst (although on author's end - best) ending ever! The next one better come out sooner, rather than later.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Tavia Gilbert’s performances?

    Only if there was no 'Vlad' in them I think.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "Even the heartless can be turned."


    Any additional comments?

    I got the free eBook of the first book in the series on Kindle. Read it and thought it was a bit interesting so I figured I'd use a credit and get book two here on Audible. Well it almost ruined the series for me. When reading the first book I imagined Leila as being stong and not your usual flakey female. I pictured Vlad as a true vampire in the modern age.

    But when Tavia Gilbert read the second book to me all that shattered like glass on a stone castle floor. She read Leila as being a breathless, bimbo type female and her "Vlad" accent nearly made me laugh every time she used it. I understand he would have a 'Romanian accent' but she just put the typical Dracula play voice on him and it made him very comical. Her versions of them made me think more of a Broadway vampire comedy rather than a serious love story with one of the most heartless men in history.

    I will of course, get the third book. Not sure if it will be audio yet. And that is because this one felt like it ended in the middle of the story and I guess like Sheldon, I have completion issues.

    I will say that Frost did a great job with the modern versus ancient attitudes and expectations and conflicts between the two main characters.

    (1394)

    In "Undead Sublet" by Molly Harper, executive chef Tess Maitland is banned from her five-star kitchen in Chicago to recover from "exhaustion". Choosing a random rental house in Half-Moon Hollow to spend time in, she's unaware that the house comes with a strange man. Even though Sam Masden's ex-wife has rented the house out from under him, the divorce settlement allows him access to it for another ninety days. With Tess unable to go anywhere else, and Sam unwilling, a war of epic proportions is declared - and romantic sparks and heavy pots fly.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Undead Sublet: A Free Story from 'The Undead in My Bed' the most enjoyable?

    After it was slow to get rolling it became quiet the enjoyably story. The plot is very cute and not like anything else I've ever read or heard.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Molly Harper? Why or why not?

    I would if it was cheep enough. Just because I understand that this is one of a few in a series. I'm curious about how she introduced and developed the other books.


    What didn’t you like about Sophie Eastlake’s performance?

    She was okay for the most part but her attempt to 'imitate a male voice' did not deliver well.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh a bit. It was slow to start but once it got going it was rather good.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a plot line that was very different than most vampire books. It was a slow start but once it got going and started wrapping you into it, then it was good. It could really use more, just plain more. It was too short, too rushed of a story. And it could use more spice, the vampire was supposed to be sexy and a couple times he got into that a bit but then he fell back to not being mundane, although that might be the point. Very cute story, worth a read or listen? Yes. But get it on sale.
