Tortured Rock Star!
I really enjoyed the scene at the club owned by a friend's parents where a "Your Toxic Sequel" cover band was playing. The part where Lucas was watching Sienna when he was singing.
This is the first performance of Elizabeth Louise's that I have heard.
She survived her own demons, can they survive his together.
First and foremost - the male cover model for this book (among so many others) is Dusan Novakovic.
The Narrator did a very good job with this book. Being a female narrator, she still managed to do a believable male POV. It was NOT overdone as some narrator's tend to do. It's very important to me that I enjoy who I'm listening to as well as enjoying the story itself. Well done Elizabeth Louise, your performance was great.
Okay - Devoured by Emily Snow is a somewhat steamy romance novel about a rock star, Lucas Wolfe, and his one that got away, Sienna Jensen. I went into this book loving it. Yeah, Sienna was a little whiny and Lucas was a bit of an ass-hat, but you just know it's going somewhere. There cannot be a happy ending if the book starts out with nothing to improve on. I read some of the reviews that were complaining about the insecurities of Sienna or whatever. I disagree, but then I'm not an overly critical person. Not always a good thing if you make a habit of posting reviews. Oh well.
I really enjoyed this book. I liked the crappy family life and the overcoming adversity and the tortured souls etc. Sienna has her funny moments...
This is the second time this evening I’ve felt bad for offending Kylie and if this time is anything like the first, she’s about to punch me square in the vagina.
There's enough sexual tension between Lucas and Sienna to drive you crazy...
Lucas spears a fork into his salad and takes a bite. I study the way he chews—slow, deliberate movements. Tiny flicks of his tongue that causes my body to burn. He turns eating, something that is so basic, into a seductive art. I catch myself sinking my teeth into my own lip as I imagine him drawing it in between his teeth.
And I find myself wanting to wake-up. Wanting to open my eyes and kiss him. Wanting him to devour me just a little more.
I am definitely eagerly awaiting the release of book two, Consumed
The humor - the open animosity in the beginning between Simon and Caroline, and Clive's reaction to the various visitors to Simon's side of the wall.
Tangled series by Emma Chase for the similarities in humor and level of enjoyability.
Definitely Clive's POV
Bang twice for love...
Absolutely - The story is awesome and funny and you cannot go wrong with an Alice Clayton book.
This book to me was lie a view behind the scenes. What happens AFTER the Happily Ever After... And it was still happy but definitely had some toward spiraling moments.
Clive's return with his own harem.
Oh yeah - It's entertainment and the characters are like old friends. You wanna hear about them and catch up on their lives.
The small town setting of Medocino that Viv moves to. Everyone knows everyone.
Clark - He's hot and nerdy, what's not to love?
Every scene where Viv looked beyond the elbow patches of Clark's tweed jacket and saw the hotness beneath. And the scene with the bat.
Anything form Alice Clayton will make you laugh out loud, this was no different.
It depends. I didn't really enjoy the narration so if my friend was picky about who's reading, then no...otherwise yes.
The reunion between the two with the taxi scene.
You can definitely tell their different characters, but the accents just never sounded right to me.
I listened to this while commuting and that was a fast enough pace for me.
All the Paris references and the slow realization of love that both Mia and Ansel felt towards one another.
Mia's personal growth and ability to adapt and be strong for herself, making herself worthy of Ansel's love.
No, I haven't listened to her before but this performance was great and I would definitely listen to her again.
Yes, and I practically almost did.
The story was wonderful - different setting and slightly different storyline.
Jack Henry is my favorite character. You see so much change in his personality throughout the book all because he's falling in love.
I have already listened to the next book in the series. I'm not overly enthused by the audio version and find it's more the accents that make the performance LESS enjoyable.
There were a few laugh out loud moments with the interactions between Laurelyn and Jack Henry, however the abrupt ending had me so grateful that the next book was already released and I didn't have to wait to see what happens next.
Yes - It was brief but wonderful - a perfect insight into Ansel's character
Ansel waking up in less than perfect condition...
The delicious accent he provides for Ansel, yum! Also, he does an excellent job of both the friends accents (Canadian and Australian). Wonderful narrator.
It was too brief to have one particular moment, but Ansel's determination to stay married would probably be my pick.
Beware self-fulfilling prophecy!
Oh this was a tough story - the loss of Nighteyes is still troublesome. The loss of some pivotal characters was heartbreaking, and while necessary to the plot, no less easier to bear. Fitz's efforts to save the Fool were probably the most bittersweet moments for me.
Yes - the previous two books in this series. He is a slipping genius. His accents/character voices cover the length and breadth of the United Kingdom and is such a pleasure to listen to. I will definitely be looking for more narrations/performances by him.
FitzChivalry and the Fool's goodbye scene(s). They were heartbreaking and endearing in turns.
I loved being back with FitzChivalry the most. Seeing how his life turned and greeting the new additions to his life.
FitzChivalry, the Fool and Nighteyes are my favorite characters and as it seems with the lore of the books I also view them as one complete entity.
I have not listened to any other performance by Elliot Hill before. After binge listening to the Tawny Man trilogy with James Langton as narrator, Elliot took a little getting used to as his interpretation of the characters voice was different from the past 120+ hours I'd just listened to, but overall he was very good.
It made me anxious - I knew going in that it would be a cliffhanger ending, and that the release date for the next book would be at least next year and the anticipation of waiting makes me anxious. When I finished the book I was no less anxious to know what happens next. It's a powerful story full of heartache and happiness and shocking revelations. This book made me both laugh and cry (and sob).
This encompassing series (Farseer Trilogy, Liveship Trilogy, Tawny Man Trilogy, and Fita and the Fool Trilogy) is by far amongst my favorite books of all time. It joins Robert Jordan and Terry Goodkind and I am in eager anticipation of the next book in this trilogy.
Probably not. I read for pleasure but also for the purpose of reviewing for my blog - time is limited and there are VERY few books that hit my re-read list.
Colby was probably my favorite - obvious choice as he is the main male love interest in the story - but he was alpha and capable, deadly and delicious.
This is the first time I have listened to a book narrated by Jeffrey Kafer. It was a good performance and I wouldn't mind hearing him narrate other books in this series.
Torn between the choice of two unknown dangers always choose the hot and brooding one over the sleazy henchmen.
