The characters grabbed a hold of my heart and didn't let go. I already owned the paperback so I knew I loved this book. There are some stories worth re-reading and this is one of them. True love concurring what would seem to be insurmountable obstacles and making the two individuals whole in a natural progession of events and feelings. Since I work on a computer all day, my eyes get blurry long before I want to put some books down. With Audible, I can "read" as long as I want!
I'm glad I did. I read the books of the Inside Out series first, but didn't think I'd get into the journal entries. I'm not a fan of BDSM normally, but it's okay to read on occasion. The journal entries have enough sex to be hot, but are really more of what a private journal usually is -- insight into the writer's innermost thoughts and feelings.
As for the last part that is the master's story, I really feel it humanizes Mark in a way the full-size books in this series haven't (maybe couldn't). I'm so glad it was included and I loved the narrator's voice.
In my opinion, this collection is not stand-alone. You really need the context of the whole series for all of this to make sense. Since I'd recommend the whole series, that's not a drawback for me. This series was my first experience with this author and I find that her books are the kind you want to finish in one sitting.
I would have had more romance/interaction between Livy and Vic, and less violence. It's a good-sized book so I sometimes lost the thread of the romance amongst the rest of the story. (Since I do most of my listening at work, part of that lost thread could be my distraction and no fault of SL.)
I'll definitely listen to this again as I have almost all of the other books in this series. I love listening to my favorite series over and over again. If I do miss something one time, I'm sure to catch it the next.
I'd recommend this audiobook if you like Molly Harper books in general and Amanda Ronconi's performances in particular.
Light-hearted tone even though there was a serious struggle going on.
She has a pleasant voice and I like how she changes voices for characters. Also, she seems to remember how she made someone sound in the previous book so there's continuity.
I have the Kindle version, too, so I hesitated to get the audiobook. Wasn't sure if I wanted to go to the added expense as I liked the first book in the series better. I'm so glad I bought it! Amanda's narration made all the difference. Still liked the first one better, but I'm sure to listen to this book over and over again.
Yes. It's a great fantasy. One woman with three men who dote on her, protect her and rock her world. I read another review that scoffed at how quickly the relationship fell into place, but I look at it as a modern fairytale. Sometimes a person just needs an escape and this book provides it. I gave it four stars because I would have liked more background on the men's family dynamics through the generations. Hoping that's coming in subsequent books. Or maybe that would have detracted from the fantasy. Bottom line is I'd definitely recommend this one as a good escape from reality . . . and the hot sex sure doesn't hurt!
Hot sex and a good mystery. There was plenty of action to advance the plot.
Alyssa's character was very appealing in her determination to succeed despite all the hardship in her life. She busted stereotypes and was someone I could feel empathy for. That she could feel love for a strong man after what had been done to her speaks volumes for her resilience.I was extremely irritated with Luc. His stubborn refusal to believe in Alyssa's fidelity and to believe the baby was his, over and over again, made me grit my teeth at times. I suppose he had too much going on to get re-tested sooner or it might have been difficult to keep the plot going without his attitude issues, but about the only downside to the book from my perspective.
I found it very interesting that a man had the urge to be a father like some women have the urge to be a mother. I felt it from a young age and tried to explain it to a friend who'd never felt it. (Not an easy task.) I've never known a man to have felt that same (or similar) urge.
I like the audio edition better because I can listen to the book over and over while I'm working, doing dishes, holding the cat, you name it!
Sandra Burr's performance was great. She changed her voice for the different characters, speaking clearly and enunciating. She really got into the characters, making for exciting listening.
I have many songs loaded on my iPod, but most of the time I listen to this book. I alternate between this one and "Faking It," also by Jennifer Crusie. I've listened to them so many times I've lost count and they're never boring!
Yes, I'd recommend this audiobook. The continuing story of Gideon and Eva was a nail-biter. I was so engrossed in this book, I had ringing in my ears from over-using my earbuds! I've pre-ordered the next book. I can't wait!
I was looking forward to this story for a long time and it was wonderful! I love all the books of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, but this one was special. I was interested to see how the author would handle an exclusively gay story. At its heart, it's a love story, pure and simple, but with an erotic kick (like the other BDB books). If you're a first-time reader of this series, you might want to take them in order as I believe it makes them easier to follow. (Other story lines are woven into each book.) This is definitely a MUST HAVE!
Yes, I'd highly recommend this book. Not only does it have hot sex scenes, it has well-rounded characters. I was able to identify with the situation and empathize with the characters' personal issues. It's not just erotica, it's erotica with a plot and believable story.
Not only did I want to listen to this in one sitting, I began the book again as soon as I'd finished it! Once was not enough.
I'd listened to the first book in this series, Wicked Ties, through my library's audio download service. Not only do I plan to purchase that book, I can't wait to pick up the rest of the series.
