    Out of all the books for Sookie this one and Dead Reckoning are my least favorite ones. But with that said and you like the series you can't skip any book. But my favorite is the next one in the series # 4 Dead as a Doornail.

    Story

    Let's just say that I really liked this book. The first part of the story was better than the last but it did have HEA. As a fan of Blue Lagoon, Six Days Seven Nights and Stranded I snatched this book up right away. I'm all about the romance while under extreme conditions, especially on a beach. I know there was some beef about the age difference for Anna and TJ. I think that it wasn't the age difference only that TJ was only 16 at the start. Knowing that he has survived cancer is a big way to grow up fast, so TJ was more mature than the average 16 year old. Not to worry nothing untoward happens until after TJ turned 18. If it had been an older man and a younger woman most people wouldn't have blinked an eye. There is some mild sex and cussing in the book. I kept wonder if the narrator had somewhere to go? Because she was racing to get through this book. It takes a bit to get immersed it the story because I felt like my mind had to race to catch up with the words to understand what was happening. I think she would have done an excellent job if she had paced herself.

    I managed to get this audio for free back in 2013 for Valentines and I wasn't sure about it so it has taken me a while to listen to it. So I figured I would give it an hour chance, fortunately it is better than I thought it would be. It's a nice light romance that has a smidge of mystery involving a stalker. Narrator sounds a bit too much like a little girl and it is a little grating, but she improves over the book or at least I stopped noticing it as much. This book is the first book in a series, The Winning Season is the second. Thanks Audible for the freebie.

    The more books I read in this series the better it gets. With the first book it was only okay to me but it was good enough to try the next book. The second book I enjoyed immensely and was glad I gave this series another shot. Now with this book I'm hooked and can't wait to find out what is going to happen next. There were a few small sections when Kate would flashback to memories that would be a little disjointed and I ended up confused. Partially because I didn't always realize it was a memory and I would be wondering where did the story go. I love how Curran leaves you will a big grin on your face at the end of each book. Narrator is good, she has the sound of dry humor down.

    Story

    There are some pluses and minuses to this story. I loved the fighting back and forth between the main characters it was pretty funny. I liked all the pickup lines at the beginning of each chapter, they were also amusing. What I didn't overly like was how bitter and closed off the heroine had become after a child hood tragedy. It was just sad to see her so damaged that it affected her whole life which made her less likable. And although I liked this book it is kinda a man hating book, but the author points that out and tries to show that heart ache can go both ways. Overall it is a fluffy filler book, no real depth but funny and a quick read. The first half of the book is better than the last and I wasn't fond of the side story. Narrator was ok, nothing really stuck out as good or bad.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: An all-time Audible favorite that mixes historic fiction, adventure, and romance with one of the most fascinating literary devices: time travel. Outlander introduces an exhilarating world of heroism and breathtaking thrills as one woman is torn between past and present, passion and love. In 1945, former combat nurse Claire Randall returns from World War II and joins her husband for a second honeymoon. But their blissful reunion is shattered....

    Story

    This book is the most boring and trite of stories. There was no romance and no agenda for the heroine to go home only lots of attempted rapes and stories of rape. I would have even been happy if it was a bodice ripper book but by the time the bodice ripping part actually came it was very disappointing. Then there was lots and lots of crappy sex scenes including abuse not romance/love. I don't get all the great reviews. This book is defiantly not a five star review with 8 additional books later worthy kind of book as many of the other reviewer seem to think.

    There is a lot to be said about the details in books. This book is trying to be realistic by showing how awful life is back in the day, but the details are only good until the author decides to leave out obvious ones or change them to fit her story. It's amazing that everything that is written back in Scotland was in English. Claire seemed to be able to read everything and nobody commented on the fact that first she can read and second it is all in English. She also acts ignorant of medical procedures that were used back in the day, but claimed she is a nurse. Even I know about most of it.

    Not to mention the heroine doesn't act like she has any desire to return home she goes about it only as an afterthought. I also don't get why she said she was a widow and that she believed it. She was supposedly in love with her husband Frank and instead of trying to get back, she settles in and tells everybody she's a widow. Now I understand she is in a difficult situation but back in those days it would have been safer to say you were married. This made it convenient for the story line that she wasn't married but to me it was a big fat lie. Another thing that bugs me is that she doesn't have any problems with the way life was lived, I would think that since she came from the future she would have had difficulties adjusting to it. Claire didn't act like she actual had any real emotion over the events that were happening to her.

    These are just a few of the problems I had with this book, there were more. Narrator was okay, maybe a bit boring. She did mispronounce several words which was annoying. I defiantly will not be continuing with this series.

    This series is like a song that you like really well the first couple of times you hear it, but it gets old fast the more you hear. Don't get me wrong I like this series, but maybe it should have ended a book back or so. I probably will continue to read as long as I put some time in between listening to the books in this series and I get it on sale. Overall I would give this book a 3.5 rating. I'm not a huge fan of the narrator, she is just too slow and I ended up listening to this on fast speed.

The second problem is all the clues point at a clone from his line and they already know all his tricks. How can he solve his own murder when every suspect has his name and face?

    I really liked Confessions of a D-list Super Villain and the Dead Eye series so I went ahead and took a chance on this book. While good, detective stories are just not my thing. Mostly this is about coming to term with being a clone. I was hoping it would be funnier, in which case I wouldn't have cared what the main story line was about. There is no humor in this book. Only me, myself, 42 and a bunch of other clones that have vastly different personalities. Narrator was a little dry, but overall he was okay.

    While this book is slightly funny it tends to jump from characters to character without the benefit of letting us know it is from a different point of view. There was also a lot of out of the blue additions to the story without much explanation. This might be due to the transition to audiobook. I like to get short stories sometimes to break up the long audiobooks. While this book did the job it was only a filler book and I see there is more to this series, I won't be getting them. Narrator is slightly high pitched.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It is way better than the first book and I'm glad I gave this series another chance. I bet there was a new editor because this book flowed much better than the first. I only liked the first book okay, which got better toward the end which was why I gave this series another chance. Magic Burns on the other hand was good and makes me want to read more of Kate Daniels. I like a strong heroine who doesn't think she is the best at what she does so when she gets hurt it isn't shocking and annoying. I also like to see characters who care about others. Kate taught Bran how to be a real hero, which was cool in my book. I'm also intrigued with how the relationship with Kate and Curran might develop. This book had me laughing out loud several times. Narrator was okay, she was a little over dramatic at the end.

    I recommend reading this book after Lothaire but before Macrieve. Yes it is an spin off of IAD series but really it is a continuation of the series, just with different characters and location. Which to be truthful that is how all the books are in this series. For me Shadow's Claim was another wonderful addition to the series and Kresley Cole cannot write fast enough to satisfy me. This wasn't my favorite book from KC, but I still gobbled it up. My only complaint was that Bettina drove me crazy with her obsession of her childhood friend. Who in my opinion wasn't that great of a friend. Luckily like me she couldn't resist a sexy vamp who would do anything for her. Robert Petkoff was drool worthy as usual.
