    Story

    Story was not what I expected. More a political battle between two communes/ cult that supposedly have big clout over the world. The chemistry between the two started off hot but there was no other action. The sparks were there, but I like more action between the sheets. The writing was good the story original but too short, I believe the story could have been extended for a better book. I didn't realize it was the beginning of a series until after I had listened to it, so I will be getting the rest. Narration was good. Defiantly worth the price.

    To most, they are animals—even when in human form. They are to be collared and kept on the fringes of society, scorned because they are feared, hated for their extraordinary powers. And attorney Kim Fraser has to go right into the heart of their lair. It’s her job to defend those in need. But there’s absolutely nothing defenseless about Liam Morrissey. His soft Irish lilt and feline grace can’t disguise his sheer strength.

    Story

    While I liked this book there were a few things that just missed the mark on making this a really good book. I would rate this book a 3.5 overall.

    The good: The characters were loveable and I wouldn't mind seeing what will become of them. I like the world that was created and I can see lots of potential with the story.

    The bad: The whole story was covered in only two days. Now that’s fast even for flies. The whole speed of the story was a wham bam thank you ma'am, even the narrator. There were times I had to suspend disbelief how events progressed concerning the time factor. Although I liked most of the characters Kim drove me a bit nuts with her reasoning, to me she didn't make sense. I also was not surprised at the ending, a bit predictable.

    But with all that I still liked it and would be willing to pick up the next book on a sale. While the narrator is a bit fast, she would have done better if she paused for a breath once in a while. I did like her Irish accent though.

    From the moment he beds Desi, Caine knows turmoil will follow. Desi might have the face of a temptress, but she also has a will of iron, and while she needs his protection, she's determined that no man will control her again. They establish an uneasy bond, but it isn't enough for Caine. He wants all Desi has to offer. He wants her screams, her moans, her demands...everything. Yet there's still a bounty on Desi's head, and keeping her sexually satisfied is proving easier than keeping her alive.

    Not sure why I bought this book besides the fact it was on sale back in 2012. I'm not really big on western romance books as you can tell by how long it has taken me to listen to. If you can call this book a romance. Basically this book is about a serial raped victim who was force to marry and the first thing her new husband does is make her have sex so she can get "over" her trauma. I tried to give it the benefit of the doubt, but it was just so unrealistic. There is no way a woman who had that much trauma would be so into sex. Not to mention Caine being a dumb ass, he seemed to think the thing to make her better was to push her in the bedroom. Needless to say I will not be continuing on with this series, I only made it half way through this book before giving up. Narrator was just okay.

    Story

    I really like a good children's book. This one borders on being both a children's book and YA book. The characters are great, the bad guy gives just enough logic to his madness that you are kept guessing what the good guys will do. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to listening to more from this series. In a way it reminded me of Sherrilyn Kenyon's Chronicles of Nick series, just not as dark. Maybe because Fred Berman reads some of her books but both were excellent audiobooks. Maybe some of the ideas are not quite original, but the telling of the story caught and held my attention. Narrator of course is great. Some of my favorite kids series are of course Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, and How to train your Dragons.

But later when he's found stabbed to death, she doesn't have to be told she's managed to land herself In Deep Voodoo!

    Story

    Not as bad as all the reviewers are complaining about. This book was a bit funny, albeit not a lot of depth to it. My worst complaint would be that the main character's inner dialog with herself was slightly whinny. Over all if you are looking for a light romance with some mystery this would be a good choice, but I recommend waiting until this book is on sale. I have read other books by Stephanie Bond and have enjoyed them before. Also the narrator is not as horrible as stated, even if she can't pronounce garage. I happened to pick it up with the Whispersync program so for a few bucks I enjoyed it.

    Some feelings you just can't fight. He is known as the Warrior Captain - a master of every weapon, a fierce soldier sworn to protect his kind. Powerful, relentless, merciless, Elijah has always won every battle he's ever taken on - until now. Ambushed by necromancers, he is left for dead only to be discovered by the woman who could very well deliver the final blow: Siena, the Lycanthrope Queen.

    Story

    After Gideon's book I wasn't sure I was going to continue on with this series, it was so boring. But I wanted to read Elijah's story, especially since it has lycanthropes (my favorites) in it. Yes this book is better, more in the line of Jacob. So if you liked the first book you will enjoy this one too. I really liked the hair concept, of how it is a living part of a lycanthrope, kinda like a medusa. Overall I did enjoy this book. Although I'm not in a hurry to read the next, so I just might wait for a sale. As I have stated before Xe Sands is not my favorite narrator. It not her voice but her speed of reading that really gets me. If she would speed up just a bit, maybe she wouldn't put me to sleep. I might be in the minority here, but she is not my favorite narrator.

    I had read this book as a teenager and thought I really liked it. While I did enjoyed this book, it was nowhere as good as I thought it was when I was younger. Overall this is a typical regency romance. 3.5 overall it was and enjoyable story and would be a good book for a sale. I probably won't read the other two in the series. I tend to enjoy Karen Robards newer books that have more mystery in them. My favorites being Whisper at Midnight, One Summer, and Walking after Midnight. Narrator does a fairly good job.

Best Actress nominee Anne Hathaway (Rachel Getting Married, Alice In Wonderland), fresh from filming one of this year’s most anticipated films, The Dark Knight Rises, lends her voice to this uniquely American fairy tale.

    An enjoyable children's story that is a timeless story. I actually enjoyed this story better than anticipated. I liked how the books beginning seemed to be in black and white just like how the moving is. I really liked the TV series the Tin Man that was based on this book. Anne Hathaway is a very good narrator, although some of her interpretations of how certain characters will sound do not fit. Thanks Audible for the freebie.

    Samantha Martin is an imp, enjoying an extended vacation from Hel. All she wants to do is drink beer by the pool, play mischievous pranks on the humans, and get her hot neighbor in the sack. It's a relaxing break from her infernal home as long as she manages to avoid the angels, who won't hesitate to execute her on sight. But when her naughty hellhound lands her in trouble with the local werewolf pack, Sam is blackmailed into helping track and catch a killer. The steps she must take to appease the werewolves will put her right in the crosshairs of the angels.

    Story

    Hard to rate this book. At first I thought I was going to hate Sam, she was just not a likable character. I almost shut off the book, but I continued to listen and Sam started to grow on me and I then laughed at some of her antics. The story itself was mildly entertaining and I did finish the story. While there was no sex in the book it has lots of cussing and talk of dismemberment, so if that sort of thing bugs you stay away from this book. I had purchase the first three in this series for about 6 bucks total and I still don't really know if I will read the next two books or not. I really am having a hard time deciding if I like this book or not. Usually the narrator even if not great I can deal with. But the worst thing a narrator can do is read soooooo slow that it wants to put me to sleep and unfortunately this narrator did. While she has a pleasant voice, I still put my player on fast speed so as not to be bored to death.

    Andy Carpenter isn't sure what to think when he gets a mysterious phone call from a good friend, policeman Pete Stanton, asking him to drop everything, drive to an unfamiliar address, and bring his girlfriend, Laurie Collins. He certainly isn't expecting to show up at a crime scene. But that's exactly where he arrives - at the house where Pete has just discovered the body of ex-convict Danny Balfour. Upstairs are Danny's now orphaned four-year-old son and basset hound. And that, Andy discovers, is why he and Laurie were called to the scene - Pete wants them to take care of the boy and the dog so they won't get thrown into the "system". This is already asking a lot, but soon Pete needs another big favor from Andy. Pete himself has come under suspicion for Danny's murder, and he needs defense attorney Andy to represent him - and to find out what really happened in Danny's house that day!

    If you are a fan of Andy Carpenter you will not be disappointed. Andy is such a nerd, he cracks me up. This time he has to defend his friend Pete while at the same time watch a kid named Ricky. Andy doesn't really know what to do with a kid, luckily he has Laurie. Right from the beginning I was laughing at Andy's shenanigans. David Rosenfelt has made me a fan of this series and as long as he writes Andy Carpenter I will listen to his work. The narrator is part of the creation of this awesome character, he does an awesome job portraying Andy Carpenter.

    Story

    I had higher hopes for this book, the storyline sounded intriguing. I am a fan of ancient curses of all cultures, so I was excited about this book. I was enjoying this book up to about 4 hours into the story and it took a turn that wasn't to my liking. I wasn't a huge fan of Collin to start off with but as the story progressed I started to loath him, even when Elle like him I still didn't. The romance was very juvenile. I went ahead and read what the next books were about and needless to say I will not be continuing on after this series. I am not a fan of love triangles, I believe they have to be written with some delicacy otherwise they don't work. I don't believe I will like this triangle at all so this is the end for me. I was not a fan of the narrator, she had a tint of tinniest that was a bit annoying. After a while though I didn't notice quite as much.
