I was so into this story, I didn't want it to end. I've had debates with friends who think the narrator's voice wasn't right for the story - they found it annoying - but I liked it... though I felt like I should warn you that you might not like it. The story itself is unique - different from all the other shifter books on the market today. My full review of the book is available online.
This book is shorter than the first and seems to act as a bridge between book one and three. Something huge is on the horizon - this series is not at all what I expected when I picked up the first book. Now I must continue on. I can almost feel the intrigue picking up force. An audiobook told in the second-person narrative is challenging but as I'm further immersed in the story of Rachel and Merrick, I find that I'm too fascinated to care.
An audiobook told in the second-person narrative is challenging. Too often, I had to pause and rewind to be sure I'd understood a scene. BUT... the story was fascinating. Unique and infused with a historical love story, it was enchanting. I plan to continue on in the series because I just have to know the complete story of Rachel and Merrick.
I have fallen for the Reapers... don't ask me to do it... I can't pick my favorite. These rough-on-the-outside men have hearts-of-gold on the inside. Wylde has created characters readers couldn't possibly not fall for. They're strong, committed and fiercely loyal.
I wanted more time with Ruger and Sophie once they were happily together. There was a lot of time taken in the book to set up the overall club, aka world building, which I appreciated but I craved more Ruger and Sophie moments.
Now to get my hands on another hot, sexy Reaper... uhm, I mean, another Reaper's MC book. ;)
Thanks to everyone who recommend I read this series. After the first book, I'm sucked into the Reaper's MC World and it sure is hot. These men are alpha heroes all the way. They work hard and they play hard. They're fierce and deadly and, in their very own way, sweet on their women. Horse and Marie's love story is most unusual but none the less romantic. I dare you to listen to this book and not fall in love... or at least, lust, with these men.
One Week Girlfriend is flirty and fun in some moments and then serious and emotional in others. Both characters are struggling and lean on one another. And while there's no HEA, readers can see it coming in the next book. The secondary characters add to the depth but aren't terribly likable - they do explain a lot about Drew and Fable.
One Week Girlfriend is dual narrated with the story switching between the two main characters’ points of view. I liked the concept but what was confusing is hearing both of them do the other's voice during dialogue. For the most part, I enjoyed the narration - it was just that one little glitch for me.
I plan to read Second Chance Boyfriend soon because a love story just isn't a love story without that HEA.
These books in this series have been so much fun... I listened to each of them and I seriously looked like a crazy woman laughing in the car all by myself listening to some of the scenes, then nearly pushing my shopping cart into someone during others. From sexy to witty in sixty seconds flat, this book is the most perfect, beautiful ending to the series.
Where to even begin? This is one of the most raw and brutally emotional series, likely falls into the dark erotic romance genre. I put it down a few times just for a breather. But then I couldn't stay away and as soon as I was done with the first book, I started this one. So taken with the story, I had to know what would happen next for Caleb and Olivia. Just as with the first book, I was seduced by this story. There's nothing predictable about this couple and that makes for a more intense read.
Beautiful Player is sexy fun. The story has a quirkiness to it that keeps it light and fun to read with some truly laugh aloud moments. Then there's this angsty love story with the most uniquely developed characters that readers will adore. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series now... love the author's writing style and the dual narrators' reading.
True to the other books in the series, this book had a lot going on and absolutely must be read within the context of the series. Gabriel's Redemption gives readers closure on the threads loosely woven through this complex love story. The audiobook narration did a solid job of conveying emotion and felt just perfect. Not the typical love story, readers will find this story both unique and, in the end, quite poignant.
The story itself is 5-stars. But its the first time listening to an audiobook that the narration bothered me so much, it brought down the rating dramatically. If I hadn't agreed to review the audio book for the publisher, I would've switched to eBook. I'm a HUGE fan of Jo Peterson but I might just stick with reading her books instead of listening. Sticking to Plan A -and reading it on ebook- would've been a better choice.
