Good fun and lots of laughs. Darynda Jones writing gets better with each book. Characters are developing more. Even though it hasn't been that long since I read the others, I wish I had reread them because I must have forgotten stuff that had happen in the other books that is mention in this book. Defiantly a series that needs to be read in order. I enjoy Lorelei King voice, she has such a way of making the main character wicked and fun at the same time.
I'm really enjoying this series, it's like my favorite blanket. Glad to have it around and it gives me a nice warm, fuzzy feeling afterwards. The more you read this series the more you get hooked. This is a nice clean series for those who are not into sex. I personally would like to see more romance added, there are plenty of candidates to choose from. I'm leaning towards Sailor, but who knows if that will happen. Lily in a way reminds me of Sookie from Charlaine Harris's series, but the story is way different though. Lily is sweet and would do anything to help a friend, which is how she gets herself into trouble. Narrator is slightly annoying, but I'm good at focusing on the story and at book three I'm getting use to her.
In the first book, my review was positive, but it didn’t start out that way. I listened longer and my opinion of the first book improved immensely. With that in mind I purchase the second book, hoping with all the positive reviews that it only gets better. But again I’m 2 hours into the book and wondering should I finish. After finally finishing this book I'm irritated, it's just like what all the other reviewers are saying, there is no ending. It just stops right at the climax of the story. I don't mind trilogies but you need to at least finish a part of the story to end a book. I also feel that the characters are not overly developed and I know I would have been one of the towns folk that was immediately terminated, because I wouldn’t stand to be a stepford wife. I don't like the way the relationship is heading with Teresa/Ethan/Adam thing. I'm not sure I will purchase the next book. So my suggestion is buy this if it is on sale but only if you liked the first book really well.
Okay I will admit that I am not as enthralled with the BDB as with some of the other reviewers. I like it granted but it is defiantly not one of my favorite series. These books are a hit or a miss for me, this one is leaning more towards a hit. As usual there is more than one story to the book.
First we have Wrath's and Beth's story where they are at odds on whether or not to have a baby. They then get together better than ever to fight The Glamaria/BOB. There is a beautiful scene with Elvis involved and then later when they get good news. Then we throw in Wrath's parents story and get to know them better, which puts our knowledge of Wrath in a new prospective. Both stories are a great addition to the series.
Next we have Asail and Sola's story, which was better in this book vs the last book. Grandma is a hoot. I am not sure why JR Ward felt she needed to bring in a complete outside story and characters when there are still stories she has left undone. I feel that this story is just a shadow of Rhevenge's story. Overall I think it could have been skipped completely and because I think this I only gave this book 4 stars.
Then we have Treze and Selina story, at first I wasn't feeling it and wondered how this was going to work. I eventually started to get a little more involved into their story, but it seems short and unfinished. I look forward to Treze's brother Iam story more. Maybe in the future Treze's story can be improved but right now it sorta sucks.
As for Xcor and Layla, I was looking forward to their story but this book only brings up their story more towards the end. JR Ward has made me anticipate what will be next and how on green earth can that fubar be fixed.
In the end though I still have lots of questions. What has happened to the Virgin Scribe? Are the Dogen vampires or some other breed? Where do they come from? Same with the Sempath and the Shadows. Did I miss how they came about somewhere in the story. What is going on with John Matthew and his seizures? Is the Omega getting weaker since Butch has been dispatching his lesser? How is Quinn's brother doing? Is there going to be a story for Murder? Forgive my spelling of names, spell check doesn't know them. I will defiently be reading the next book. Narrator is great as usuall.
Christmas Pride. I enjoyed this story it was funny, hot and left me wanting more. Mace did have a total caveman mentality but you have to love him for knowing what he wanted and he wasn't taking no for an answer. Several times I caught myself laughing at the antics in the story and it made for a fast work day. There was lots of sex, which was hot but a warning that there was a lot of crude talking and swearing. I have been looking for a new shifter story that I liked and I think I have found a new one to continue on with. I enjoyed the narrator even if she butchered some of the accents. 6 hrs 39 mins.
Shaw's Tail. Another good addition to the Pride series. Funny and sexy with characters you can love. Author is very casual about sex so there is lots, so this is not for the faint of heart. Both books introduce us to new characters for future books and I look forward to reading their stories. Overall both stories are just romances and I would have liked to have had more action, but they are stories I can sink my teeth into. 5 hrs 34 mins.
As the second book of Barsoom this book is equally as good as the first. The best part was when John Carter finally discovers his son. I was a little confused with his sons age. He seemed older than 10, but I think I must have missed something with in the book. There is lots of action and fighting and it keeps the story at a fast clip. The narrator was okay and is the same as the first version I read. My only complaint is his women's voices aren't very good. I recommend buying the Kindle version for free and then downloading this book for 99 cents. This how I got the 2nd and 3rd book in the Barsoom series. For a buck it was worth it.
I am not a huge zombie book fan, so with that in mind I did enjoy this short story. The story has a fast pace and vivid imaging of a zombie breakout. So if you like this genre go ahead and download this book to try it. I got it free but I see that it is now 2.06 which is good for a trial. There is also a blurb for the next book in this series at the end of this one. Narrator did a good job.
Enjoyable witch mystery with great character development. Although I think it's funny how every time Lilly turns around there is a new and good looking guy hanging around. Max is still her main squeeze, but if that falls apart look out. Lilly is a great character with a big heart with naïve that is enchanting. Recommend reading in order to benefit from the full story. I will be continue on with the next book. I like the narrator but sometimes she is a little slow with the reading and you don't get the full effect of the action parts.
A quirky little romance story. This story is about two adults who met years later after going to the same high school and never really knowing each other. The couple is experiencing old feeling from school such as shyness, embarrassment and learning themselves, this makes for an endearing short story. Narrator does a pretty good job. Thanks audible for the freebie.
I didn't think this was as bad as all the reviewers were going on about. Yes, the focus was more for adult males, but I gleaned some useful information from it. But hey it was free so I'm not complaining. I usually give free audio's about 10 minutes and if they don't jive with me I delete and move on and I finished this one. Thanks audible for the freebie.
I liked how the author explained the order of the books before you listen. I enjoyed this story enough that I put the full length book in my wish list for when I'm ready for a new fantasy series.
Also try Jester, it also is a free sample to enjoy by this author. Narrator is great. Thanks audible for the freebie.
