I prefer both... first time reading on my own but then having Amanda Ronconi breathe a new life into the story is great.
I love the Saturday night confessionals... reminds me of times with a group of my girlfriends who I do not see nearly enough anymore... will have to see up a Margarita night myself...
I loved her narration of Molly Harper's books so much I got this one just because she was the narrator. I found this story just as entertaining mainly because of Amanda Ronconi and the life she gives to the characters. Sometimes when a narrator does multiple voices for multiple characters it just doensn't quite work. Not so with Amanda Ronconi.
Yes... went straight thru it
If you like the Molly Harper books I believe you would be pleased with this author as well. Will have to try more books by this author. There was enough of funny to make me laugh, enough plot to keep me interested, and characters I enjoyed. It's a light romance (anyone up for a steamier book might want to look elsewhere) but the relationship works... where in other books I too often feel the relationship is rushed or forced. Not so with the book.
I've been reading so many in this genre that are typically Vampire or Were based... nice to see Magic take centerfold. Audible doesn't have any of these yet but if you liked this book or Molly Harpers might I suggest the Hex series by Linda Wisdom, Broken Heart Oklahoma series by Michele Bardsley, or Real Vampires Have Curves series (forgot the name) by Gerri Bartlett.
I am a huge Jeaniene Frost fan and love the narrations done by Tavia Gilbert but this book was not one of my favorites. I understood the need for the relationship issues between the two characters but it made rooting for them difficult. Vlad is kind of detestable throughout the book - but come on... it is Vlad the Impaler but in the other books he had so much more humor to offset his violent tendencies. The book got better towards the second half of the story and leads up to where the next book will begin. Will still be getting book three of this series...
This book was a fun listen. Nothing fancy... just a typical chicklit mystery but... I liked the narrator. I liked the story. It had just enough humor and romance and it villain wasn't obvious. You end up feeling more sorry for the killer than the victim.Look forward to the next books in this series. I hope audible brings them in soon.
yes I would... because it is hilarious!!!
Jane's transformation into a vampire and all the chaos that goes with it
Too many to count
Yes and then some
If you like your Paranormal Romances to have a heavy sense of humor and very sarcastic lead characters then Molly Harper's book are definitely for you.
The story reminds me of the styles of Mercedes Lackey's Valdemar series or Tanya Huff's Quarters series... simple but character driven.
I think the beginning in Valek's office where Yelena is unsure of her fate after having expected to be executed and the whole interaction with Valek and her set the feel of where the story was going to go from there.
I really liked what she brought to the character of Valek but I really love Ari and Janco.
The book was enjoyable from start to finish. There was never a point where I found my self crying but there were plenty of moments.
This is one of the handful of audiobooks that I have listened to several times over again because it is that enjoyable.
No... boring... I like my romance novels with more romance... no a multi-chapter endless sex scene..
Did not give me enough story within the Others world... almost like this one was outside of it... just went on and on and on in an endless very graphic sex scene... it's a porno without the video to back it up
Kate Reading does a great job with the voice over work... she can't help what she was given to work with...
I've read other books in this series that I was very impressed with... then the order of the series was changed and this was made to be book 1. I hope there will be no more like this one...
I've read "Wolf at the Door" thru "Walk on the Wild Side"... they are SOOOoooooo much better than this one...
The narrator was good but the main character really put me off in how she was written and the stupid things she did with poor reasoning behind it. Not one of my favorites of this genre so say the least.
I would have liked this much more had there been a different narrator... she killed it for me... don't think I can do the second one since it's the same narrator.
