    Would you try another book from Gena Showalter and/or Max Bellmore?

    Yes, I am really enjoying the series. These couple of books I've read in the series have not been my favorite. Though Darkest Passion was the worse, Darkest Secret, while not bad just kind of seem to lose focus. The whole story seemed like the author was kind of brainstorming without a true direction.


    Has The Darkest Secret turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I really want to finish the series as I need to know what will happen to Paris, William and Torren. Just hope it gets back on track. Seems to have been rambling with Secrets.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Like the dialogue between Defeat and the Harpee.


    Do you think The Darkest Secret needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Nah... I don't think I could take it.

    Story

    I enjoyed the story and the slow romance though that was not the main topic. I did have trouble understanding how these two seemed a little slow on the up take of the investigation. I understand it was their first case but how naive can one be when the studied for 10 years.
    They are legal magic users trained by the coalition to up hold the magic laws. For which they are trained from teenagers. To me they still seemed too young to be on assignment together. One would think the coalition would assign a rookie and expert together on first assignments. Both of characters stumble their way threw the investigation and cut many cuts and bruises as a result.

    I love Kresley Cole particularly this series. While I trial enjoyed Trehen I must says I was very disappointed with Bettina. She was very weak, spoiled, bratty and too indecisive for me.

    Most of Kresley's female characters are strong warriors but have a vulnerability that keeps allows you to recognize femininity.

    Bettina came off as just weak whom did not understand either her own feelings nor of those she claimed to love... Too selfish and naive to be a main character of the Lore

    Story

    Not bad strong storyline. Good characters and descriptive. I am new to the alien things but I'm liking them. The narration was tolerable. The background noise threw me off. It did not really bring quality to the book. The male narrator I found poor on his reading. He made most of the men sound as though the had speak impediments.
    I really loved the strength of the Heroine in this story. She had a wisdom and kindness of found endearing. The author in my opinion made a mistake as casting her as a 24 yr old. The character was much too mature for 24. While being a widowed mother of 2 of a man who did of cancer will age you. It does not make you able to become a nurturing Queen of a Alien race of males able to rule with assertion and diplomacy. That was people willing to follow you rule. That comes with age and experience. So 24 is a little unbelievable for me. Plus the narration leads you to think the heroine is in her mid to late 30's.

    Jordan Alvarez knew that a promise to her best friend involved staking out the local wolf pack's scenting ceremony and recording the graphic details. No one would know that four human women had sneaked proof of their rituals-or that was the plan until Aric Wolfe showed up. Aric Wolfe knew his baby sister was up to something, and he expected her best friend, Jordan, to be in on the chaos. Jordan's scent called to both the man and the animal, and he was done fighting the call of the beast.

    I am not certain if it was the storyline or narrator. The book was tolerable nothing too exciting but not bad either. I believe a stronger narrator would have made this better. I think I will try reading instead of listening unless they change narrators.

    I like that these hot me fall what other would consider less then perfect.

    Indy Savage is a former wild child (okay, maybe not so "former") and current used-bookstore owner. Lee Nightingale is a former bad boy and now runs a private investigation service. Toss together a quiet barista with a not-so-lawful side-business, a crazy Vietnam Vet, a pothead, a drag queen, family and friends who will not mind their own business, a few stun guns, and a bag of diamonds, and mix them all up with some shootings, a high-speed chase and car bombs exploding, then hang on for your first wild Rock Chick ride.

    I really like Kristen Ashley this just so loooong and drawn out and boring. It was a book about nothing.

    I am not sure if we we're suppose to be following the diamond heist or murder or finding missing people or finally getting the boy she loves.

    This was just all over the place, I could not get down with the immature 30 something girl scared to grow up.

    Narration was good. I was just tired of listening to nothing. Book could have been wrapped up in 6 hrs instead of 13. It felt like I had repeat on over and over again.

    Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this. Evelyn Thomas' plans for celebrating her 21st birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.One thing is certain, being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.

    Ok i really enjoyed the story. I was fairytale..ish. Sort of Cinderella meets Captain Hooks Mersey bad of pirates.

    I am a little old for this genre but a cut story is a cute story. I see 21 and 26 year olds acting like this. Particularly when one is sheltered and the other a rich spoiled rocker cynic. A more mature confident women would have busted some heads and taken names later. Sigh... our Heroine was a shy naive girl wall flower. The story worked as a made for movie romance. Mainstream but solid, No real suspense easy to call... Poor never been touched wallflower meets sexy as sin rich rocker. Rocker wants her cause she is sooo different from the Groupies who only want his money and fame. Wallflower get a wake up call in the real world of sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll, runs scared. Few days of self discovery for the rocker. He decides he want her, writes a song just for her, she cries all is forgiven HEA.
    I am a sucker for a simple love story so this worked. Narrator did a decent job so I got my book fix.

    Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.

    Lots of mixed reviews for this book, however I am a realist romantic, rather than a fairytale HEA romantic. So this book gave me what l like in a Romance. Imperfect characters just enough conflict and put your big girl pants on admitting what you want.

    This book worked for me, I personally enjoyed The take it slow and let's be friends teasing storyline. There something about sexual tension in characters that make a nice romantic release. I liked that the characters established a relationship as friends prior to them prior to jumping in the sack with one another.

    And oh my the slapstick comedy in this book had me cracking up. The cat attacks were too funny.

    Olivia Waterhouse just got drafted. Problem is, she isn't being forced into the Army, she's been chosen as a Kindred bride. The Kindred are huge alien warriors;a race of genetic traders whose population is ninety-five percent male. After saving Earth from the threat of invasion they demand a reward--the right to find brides among the population. Baird is a Beast Kindred who recently escaped imprisonment and torture.

    Story

    I enjoyed the storyline and plot immensely... This world intrigues me and apparently there are many books in this series.

    There is basically a bride lottery that Earth has implemented with the Kindred Warriors in exchange for safety from the Scruge. Unmarried Earth women from the age of 20 - 35 enter the draft. Due to some genetic thing these warriors have mostly men on their planet so they are looking to find worlds where there races are similar for procreation. Not complaint from me this really pulled me in...

    I do have a problem with whinny females and Olivia was nothing if not whinny... "I want you but I don't want to want you" was a little too dramatic.

    That was my only real issue most of the story seems a little slow for a plot which only last 3 weeks. Though I didn't notice as the descriptions and building of storyline kept my interest. Just the learning about this Kindred culture was entertaining. Wonderful imagination! The love story was nice, strong and erotic. Perfect combo.
