    When empath Jade Calhoun moves into an apartment above a strip bar on Bourbon Street, she expects life to get interesting. What she doesn't count on is making friends with an exotic dancer, attracting a powerful spirit, and developing feelings for Kane, her sexy landlord. Being an empath has never been easy on Jade's relationships. It's no wonder she keeps her gift a secret. But when the ghost moves from spooking Jade to terrorizing Pyper, the dancer, it's up to Jade to use her unique ability to save her.

    This is a tough book for me to review. It was ok. It kept me interested enough to keep listening to it through the end. But I had figured out 'the bad guy' the first time he was mentioned in the book... which was very early on. Jade was very slow to pick up on things and stubbornly refused to share things with people or ask questions about things she noticed. She jumped into things without finding out enough about them before hand. It was just frustrating. I'm torn on whether or not to listen to the next one.

    These letters are often all that get me through week to week. Even if it’s just random stuff, nothing important, they’re important to me. Gramps is great, and I love working on the ranch. But…I’m lonely. I feel disconnected, like I’m no one, like I don’t belong anywhere. Like I’m just here until something else happens. I don’t even know what I want with my future. But your letters, they make me feel connected to something, to someone.

    Story

    This first book was good, though I hate the cliffhanger endings that authors are putting in multi-part books now. I enjoyed the story very much. I love the relationship between Cade and Ever. It was very emotional both happy and sad and the ending was just gut wrenching.

    The multi-voiced narration didn't really do much for me, but it wasn't too much of a distraction either. I felt like Piper Goodeve could have done a better job. The way she pronounced certain words drove me up a wall for the first half of the book. Either I got sucked in and didn't notice or she got better as time went on.

    However, when I found out that the other 2 books weren't on Audible, I started poking around to see if they had been published, then started looking at ratings on Good Reads. Both the next 2 books are rated very low. So I started reading some of the reviews and with those, got spoilers.

    I won't spoil for anyone cuz that's not fair; but for myself, I don't think I can continue with the rest of the series knowing what's going to happen from here. If I'd gone blindly into the rest of this series I'd have been really angry. Now at least if I do choose to read, I won't be blindsided. I don't usually encourage people to look for spoilers, but in this case it might be something to think about.

    Colton stole my heart. He wasn't supposed to, and I sure as hell didn't want him to, but he crashed into my life, ignited feelings within me that I thought had died forever, and fueled a passion that I never knew could exist. Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet and into my life. Now I don't think I'll ever be the same. She's seen glimpses of the darkness within me, and yet she's still here. Still fighting for me. She is without a doubt the saint and I am most definitely the sinner.

    In some ways this trilogy was like 50 Shades. It featured a similarly broken man and the woman who keeps trying to fix him no matter how much of an ass he is.

    I felt like a boomerang throughout the entire trilogy. It got very, very annoying with him pushing her away and her coming back even after she swore she couldn't take it anymore.

    The author tossed 'Dominant' and 'Submissive' in here and there as if being emotionally abused is what BDSM is about.

    The overuse of the word Soul continued here. Needless to say I'd have died of alcohol poisoning by the end if I had been playing a drinking game.

    The male narrator here did not do a good job with voices at all.

    If you can't tell, I'm pretty torn about how to feel about these books. I had to settle on 'They were ok'. But I'm still annoyed. I can't say I'd recommend these books very highly unless all you're looking for is decent sex.

    You must overcome all your fears, confront the demons that chase you, and cleanse the poison that clings to your soul or you risk the chance of losing everything. Mine started the minute Rylee fell out of that damn storage closet. She made me feel. Made me whole when all I thought I could ever be was incomplete. Became the lifeline I never knew I needed. Hell yes, she's worth the fight - but how do you fight for someone you know you don't deserve?

    During this book, the author started using the word 'Soul' so often I decided there needed to be a drinking game so at least I could get drunk each time I listened to her whine about how her soul hurt.

    This first book ends on a cliff hanger so big, there was no way I could leave it, despite having not liked the book very much. So I bought the other two. In some ways this book was like 50 Shades. It featured a similarly broken man and the woman who keeps trying to fix him no matter how much of an ass he is.

    I felt like a boomerang throughout the entire trilogy. It got very, very annoying with him pushing her away and her coming back even after she swore she couldn't take it anymore.

    The author tossed 'Dominant' and 'Submissive' in here and there as if being emotionally abused is what BDSM is about.

    The narrator did an ok job with the female voices and would have preferred she do the entire narration rather than including one for Colton's point of view in the next two books.

    If you can't tell, I'm pretty torn about how to feel about these books. I had to settle on 'They were ok'. But I'm still annoyed.

    I can't come up with many words to tell you about this book. I've read romance since I was 13 and this may be the absolute best book I've ever experienced.

    If you're more into light romances or more into erotica, don't bother with this. It's not light and there's not much sex. It's a roller coaster, it's real and completely believable, it's harsh and painful and joyous.

    If that doesn't scare you off, I can't imagine you will feel sorry about getting this book.

They insist Tully is a dragon, too, and that she’s committed crimes deserving of death. Now Tully must disprove the allegations before time runs out.

    I so wish I'd read more reviews rather than just going forward with buying this book because it sounded interesting. The story is OK, but it references characters who develop in books from other series' and it's a bit hard to follow plus is spoiler-y because I'm reading some of the other series but haven't gotten through to some of the things this book gives away.

    However, the worst thing IN THE WORLD is the swallowing and wet goopy mouth sounds of the narrator. I'm halfway through the book and am so tired of hearing her smack her lips and swallow that I wish she was nearby so I could strangle her. I came to look and see if there's a kindle version of this book so I can finish reading it myself.

    Yuck.

    This book had great potential but the narration was just awful. The woman sounded like a robot being super careful to pronounce every single letter in a word. It was like she was either talking to a child or someone who didn't know english very well. I had it on 1.5x speed and her speech was still too slow. The man sounded more like a teenager than a 28 year old billionaire. I don't mean his voice, I mean the the character was portrayed. Anything remotely sexual brought out the high pitched 'I can't believe this girl wants to touch me there' type of voice that just was not alpha or masculine at all.

    Aside from the narration ruining the book for me, the story was decent. The conflict was different than others I've seen and I've read a lot of romance. I felt like there was a bit too much self doubt in each character and that they caused more problems then they needed to by simple lack of communication and listening to what each was really saying.

No one, not even her family, knows that she cannot hear. Content with her life of seclusion, Eveline has taught herself to read lips and allows the outside world to view her as daft. But when an arranged marriage into a rival clan makes Graeme Montgomery her husband, Eveline accepts her duty -unprepared for the delights to come.

    I love, love, loved this book. I cannot come up with a single thing about this book that I disliked.

    It starts off somewhat touchily as we're dealing with a female character that is believed to be crazy. That's not a normal starting point for a romance novel.

    I did a lot of sad & sappy crying during this book. The fact that it sucked me in so thoroughly and brought out such strong emotions, to me, makes it even better. If you're not into the emotional read then maybe this isn't the best option for you. As emotional as it was though, it wasn't a heavy read at all.

    But I'm not happy with it at all at this point. I don't think it can be redeemed with only 2 hours left to go.

    I've really enjoyed the previous 3 books for the most part. My biggest problem with this series has been a couple of constants. First, 'typical' submissive women are portrayed as spineless, sniveling, doormats. The strong, sharp tongued, bratty women who wind up as submissives in the series are way more typical of submissives I know. Second, the insistence of the men in the series that the woman of their choosing is really a submissive and she just doesn't know it and if only the big strong Dom would come in and show them, they will (or should) jump straight into the lifestyle with no qualms. Not only is this incredibly unrealistic, but also chauvinistic and insulting.

    Having stated those two generalities, this book in particular has gone so far above and beyond the pushy Dom that it's moved into bullying. The woman only 'gives in to her submissive side' during sex and only after being pushed passed her 'no' point. Admittedly, she's written to really enjoy some of the aspects of submissiveness and she never uses her safe word. But, it's just too much for me and I've become frustrated to the point that I wish she'd kick him to the curb and find an actual caring, loving Dom who trusts her as much as she should trust him.

    I'll get off my soapbox now.
