    In his position as Tracker for the SnowDancer pack, Drew Kincaid must rein in rogue Changelings who've lost control of their animal halves - even if it means killing those who've gone too far. But nothing in his life has prepared him for the battle he must now wage - to win the heart of a woman who makes his body ignite... and who threatens to enslave his wolf.

    Great series!!!! This is my favorite series. Each book builds on the overall world while keeping you interested in the individual romances. A few of the book were about secondary characters that I didn’t care about at the beginning and absolutely loved by the end. This review applies to the first 9 books in the series.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    better writing! I'm Done with Rose Pressey, I can't see how any adult could enjoy these cartoonishly immature characters. They aren't even funny they were just ridiculously unbelievable and for a fantasy book that is saying a lot.


    What didn’t you like about Suzy Harbulak’s performance?

    This was quite possibly one of the worst narrations ever. Usually narrators struggle to differentiate one characters voice from another, surprisingly this was not the case here. The narrator did a great job with character voice. The problem here was even worst! Tempo and timbre. She seemed to be yelling at you often, and you could not tell inner monologues from spoken words due to a lack of pausing. Meanwhile character speaking was jittery, with sentences that ran on at times and pauses that seem to be in the middle of a word.


    What character would you cut from How to Date a Werewolf?

    Each character had a place, they were just poorly written.


    Any additional comments?

    This story had a great deal of potential, but sadly the writing was just to childish to realize that potential. I hoped it would turn around but at this point I have to recognize that I just don't like Rose Pressey books.

    Has Me and My Ghoulfriends turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I don't know why this book was in this genre in the first place. Seemed too immature to be anything other than an teen book.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    This book made me sad for women, if anything depicted in this book is remotely similar to how women think and behave. The plot was so thin i could barely stand it. I was pissed with myself for even being curious enough to buy it.

    USA Today best-selling author Amanda Ashley has been crafting fan-favorite vampire romances for over 25 years. In Bound by Night, the Wolfram estate is a crumbling wreck of its former glory. Once featured in a horror film, it is said to be haunted by all manner of paranormal spooks. But Elena doesn’t believe any of that nonsense and decides to spend the night there anyway. Imagine her surprise when she awakes in the arms of a vampire - the most beautiful man she’s ever seen.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    it went on and on with no end in sight with little purpose other than to go on and on while also not describing events worth describing.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Amanda Ashley? Why or why not?

    Maybe, but after this that may be a hard sell.


    Was Bound By Night worth the listening time?

    ?


    Any additional comments?

    There were portions of this book that were absolutely engrossing, but those parts were surrounded buy little more than filler. Even the passage of time in this book was a pointless filler. There were some many thing worth writing about that were glossed over, mean while shopping trips were described in useless detail.

    This book made me really dislike both protagonists. Darkness was intolerable at a certain point, and Kat seemed more and more like an emotional punching bag even through the end of the book. The surrounding plot was lighter than usual in some areas and moving in others. this book is not about a tortured soul finding love and acceptance, this is about an ass hole finding someone to emotional abuse. Just because he didn't beat her doesn't make it any less abusive. This is sad addition to the series.

    Would you try another book from Sharon Hamilton and/or J. D. Hart?

    I would to see if the writing gets any better. There were so many disconnects that things were difficult to follow at times.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The different spin on Vampires


    Would you listen to another book narrated by J. D. Hart?

    not a PNR. Oh, and who pronounces Ketchup as "Cats-Up".


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Any one of the issues would have allowed this to be a 4 star audio book, but the disconnects in writing and the narration issues caused it to be a 3 at best.

She desperately wants to be accepted by her surrogate family, not least because a lot of them hate her for merely being human, but for some reason her blood just won't allow the transformation to occur.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book would be great from someone that doesn't mine knowing 90% of the plot and just watching as it unfolds. The writing and characters are well written, but just because the main character refuses to put the puzzle pieces together doesn't mean the reader/listener won't.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Helen Harper again?

    If you could promise me the main character would not be so daft about ignoring her surroundings I would listen to another in this series. There is so much potential here.


    Which character – as performed by Saskia Maarleveld – was your favorite?

    Alex, because at least he seemed to be able to think past what was 2 inches in front of him.


    Any additional comments?

    A strong heroin with her head in the sand. What a waste, to be quick witted and woefully ignorant.

    Graced with the ability to shift into any form, Diskant Black is the absolute authority when it comes to New York shifters, and as the Omega of the city, his word is law. Protecting the shifter races is more than a job, it's a predisposition ingrained since birth - nothing is more important. Until a chance encounter with a tiny female sets fire to his blood, brings him to his knees and turns his world upside down. Ava Brisbane is more than he bargained for in a mate - beautiful, fragile...human.

    What would have made Omega Mine better?

    More story and Character development. Less focus on the physical parts of budding relationships.


    What could Aline Hunter have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Write a book for adults story not just "adult" themes. The Story had potential, a lot of potential but the all the focus was on the physical and there was little attention to the actual Story line.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Maxine Mitchell?

    Sure


    What character would you cut from Omega Mine?

    They all had a good start, but they didn't grow they jump from one childish extreme to another
