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
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.
Yes & No. Yes, I have a signed paperback that I was reading in part just because it's a treat these days to actually read from the printed page. No, Sebastian York is a fabulous narrator and his "Drew" is AweSOME!
That despite all the humor, there were real emotions and some pretty angst-filled moments happening throughout.
Yes - and he's awesome all across the board.
Drew's dawning realization that he's an idiot and he DOESN'T have the flu.
Probably not - It was an enjoyable story but not one that will make it to my re-reads list. Too many new books and not enough time.
The incident in the gym when Logan makes an error in judgment and winds up getting slapped - HILARIOUS!
See above - I was laughing out loud at his mistake and Holly's reaction.
I felt inspired to hit the gym and eat healthier. There are many comments on how this book is sexist and masoginistic etc. It's real and it's not always pretty but Holly is a strong, motivated woman and Logan isn't too bad of a guy either.
Having just watched the movie, listening to the book for the second time was almost like having a directors extended cut playing inside my head. All the extra details and scenes from the book that couldn't feasibly be in the movie were in this special cut inside my head. AWESOME!
Again, Peeta - Katniss kicks butt, don't get me wrong, but Peeta holds her together and gives her purpose. We know he loves her and we know she loves him, she's the only one that doesn't truly realize it.
I listened to all three hunger games books before and once you get into the story the narration flows wonderfully.
If I could have I would have.
The dynamic that builds between Katniss & Peeta. Romance is my favorite genre and I seek it out in all other genres I read.
The fact that there was more to come - The story was told but was far from over.
Yes - The narrator took a little getting used to but when the story picked up, especially in the arena, it was well-paced.
If I could have I would have. I read the books before the cast was announced and the movies were released, and on my second read of this series, visualizing the cast in the roles being read, it made for a VERY enjoyable read.
The story of Jamie & Claire as they settle at Fraser's ridge and their epic love continues to grow and prosper.
I have never read another book that can compare to this series in complexity or in the depth of characters that makes them so much a part of you.
Davina Porter is perfect for this series. She can be a hoity-toity, posh Brit in one breath a deep roguish Scott the next. Her voice, when performing, becomes sexless. That is to say she does both male and female characters so well that you can almost forget you're listening to someone read to you. The words become a movie in your head
I have no idea what else to call this - um, "Fraser's Ridge, A Historical Account"...Wouldn't sell anything but describes much of the story.
A lengthy read full of facts and happenings, but still extremely enjoyable and worth the read.
Hopelessly, tragically beautiful!
Losing Hope - This plot is one I have not come across before, so as Losing Hope is the same tale from the boy's POV, then that is all I fell I can compare it to.
I did enjoy her performance. She embodies the emotions of Sky very well. You get sucked into the story and forget that your listening to someone reading it to you. She also does well with the male voices in the book.
What will be left when her darkest secrets tear her apart?
It was a great book - perhaps not my top five, but definitely in my favorites.
Um, Hopeless as it is the same story from the boy's POV. The story, in my honest opinion, was somewhat unique. It was definitely not a plot I have read before so it doesn't compare.
Holder - He gets into the emotion that Holder feels for Sky. I tend to really not enjoy when male performers do girl voices.
Is there enough Hope left for Sky?
Love conquers all!
Oh, I don't think I've really ever read anything quite like this. Um, the abuse both characters suffered in Jessica Sorensen's "Callie & Kayden" series and maybe Julianne's painful experience in Gabriel's Inferno by Sylvain Reynard.
The scene where they were dancing in the hotel room and probably the very last scene in the book which I won't describe due to spoilers.
This book hurt. People suffer the abuse that Cass suffered every day, it's tragic, but at least for a fairy tale moment this girl found her handsome white knight to rescue her along the way. Well, it wasn't smooth going in the book either. There were loads of speed bumps along the way.But, it made for an excellent story.
Grace Grant is an excellent performer and I find myself looking for audiobooks that she specifically has narrated. The skills of the performer make a huge difference for the book and she is just fantastic!
Would you listen to If I Were You again? Why?
If there was a large gap between reading the novels I might. This is already my second time reading this story.
What did you like best about this story?
I like the tension between Sarah and Chris. They both are really into each other but they have so many walls up around themselves they struggle to get close.
What about Grace Grant’s performance did you like?
I really enjoy listening to Grace Grant. She has narrated the majority of the last few books I have listened to. I would definitely listen to her again.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
This book keeps you on edge, almost constantly. You have no clue what happened to Rebecca, you don't know if Sarah is in danger or just paranoid.
