One Excellent Story
The two moments when Lizzy appeared and spoke with them. It sent chills down my spine.
I loved this whole series. Not only did we have the storyline of the 3 brothers and their women, we had another story of Lizzy and her Billy. I found myself wanted to read the books nonstop because I was so interested in both stories. I only wish that when Lizzy and Billy were reunited, it would have been more detailed. I would have certainly cried if Nora Roberts would have done into more detail and gave them a more thought out reunion.
I never listen to audio books again but if I ever run out of things to listen to, I'll give this one another listen to.
The ending was the most memorable. I didn't see it coming at all. Without saying too much, I'll say that I thought the way the book ended was great.
She was able to switch from different voices and accents with ease. It made listening enjoyable.
Yes. It kept you on your toes.
I like listening to audio books over reading them myself because the narrators are able to bring so much more life into the story than I can.
My only problem with this book was the way Seth let his mother have such control over him. Anyone in their right mind wouldn't allow that to happen but he allowed it to go on for years. This was done in another of Nora Roberts books and it just made me annoyed with the story. The presence of Seth's mother in the story took away from the overall story. It would have been better had his conflict been about something else.
I like listening to audiobooks as opposed to reading them for myself because the narrators have the ability to bring so much more to the story.
I've only listened to the other's he's done in this series. I have to say he made the females awfully whiny at times. When I'd have imagined them saying things a little different, he made them sound weak. It also annoyed me when he made tsking sounds. I don't know if they were in the book or not but it drove me nuts. Other than that I liked it.
I actually teared up whenever Tinnon (I'm not sure if that's how his name is spelled or not to be honest with you) died and they had his funeral.
I honestly didn't think it'd like this series but I was wrong. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Nora Roberts goes into some detail, some of which is graphic or disgusting, and some of it I would have preferred not to hear but I understand it makes for a better story. I must say, however, that my least favorite way to end a book (along with the death of a main character) is by having the characters old. While the gesture and thought is sweet, it depresses the hell out of me. I'd prefer to imagine them as they were when they fought the battle, not as elderly.
Although this story was about Larkin and Blair, my favorite part was when Cian kissed Moira. How he all but pleaded with her to stop him before he claimed her mouth with his. Amazing!
I enjoyed how Larkin could shape shift. It was interesting to imagine him, soaring with Blair on his back in the form of a dragon, or running around the dark caves as a mouse.
He brought animation and feeling. My only problem is it seemed like the woman were more fussy than I imagined they would be. Whenever something distressing happened, the women always sounded like they were fighting back tears. He did it for Larkin once and made him sound almost desperate. I would have preferred a little less of that.
He did an overall good job with the mens voices. The females weren't bad, except for Blairs. Blair was supposed to have a Boston accent but I kept expecting her to say "don't cha know" at the end of everything she said. Her voice came across as someone from Minnesota.
Not at first. I was skeptical about listening to this book to begin with because it has to do with vampires, witches, sorcerers and so forth. I'm not into that type of book and after reading the Three Sisters Island Trilogy, my mind was set that I wouldn't like it. This book overall wasn't horrible. It took me a while to get in to. I started in some months back and stopped when I finished chapter 1. I listened/read a few other books before deciding to finish what I started.
I love Janet Evanovich and I love Loreli King. I haven't found a story yet that I don't enjoy from Janet. And Loreli brings such diversity with her voices.
I could feel the emotions of Caroline and Jack throughout the book. Whenever Jack and Caroline were together, I could feel my own butterflies at the thought of being in a similar situation.
The scene between Jack and Caroline in Jack's carriage, when he lays her down on the bench and kisses her. The scene with the two of them in Jack's bed was also quite intense. Although they didn't sleep together, the tension between the two was incredibly written and displayed.
I actually liked the way she did Brooks voice. I don't know what it is about women doing mens voices, some either do well or they don't. I really liked the way Julia Whelan did the mens voices for this book.
I was a little worried about this book at first. I had it in my head that it would go the same way every Nora Roberts novel goes. Something bad always happens to the main character in the end of the book, i.e. someone's kidnaped, shot, etc. I liked how this book ended. There wasn't some huge showdown that could have been easily predicted. I wasn't sure how Nora Roberts planned on ending the book since it had to do with the Russian Mob and throughout the book, it was mentioned how the mob would never stop until they found the person they were looking for. Although it seemed a little unreasonable, the book ended nicely and everything was wrapped up to my liking.
I liked how the relationship between Ryan and Miranda happened.
I haven't listened to her performances before but she did well. I liked how she was able to go from Italian to Irish to Proper English in an instant.
Yes I would. I love the way Lorelei King reads. I forget that it's just one person reading the story. The story was good as well. There were several parts where I couldn't contain my laughter.
I'd compare them to any other Stephanie Plum books because they're meant to resemble them.
I love how diverse her voice is. She gives the characters attitude and their own personalities which makes the overall experience of listening to her read very pleasant.
I love the Stephanie Plum series books and really wish Janet Evanovich would write more than one a year.
I'd consider it to be better just for the facts that I don't have to sit and read it and I like the way others read as opposed to myself. I get more out of it when I listen.
The scene when Nick is about to make love with Ruth and tells her that he's imagined how the skin on the different parts of her body would feel. It was so sensual.
