    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.

    I agree with the other listens that said it was off and on. Some parts where very slow. I think the book could have moved a little faster, it seemed to drag a little. But still a decent story overall. On the slow parts I found my self concentrating on the narrator and realized that some of the voices bordered on baby voices, which is not good for supposedly grown women. I may give book two a try, not sure yet.

    Decent plot, I guess. Druids, werewolves, vampires, Fae, tattoo artist and Harleys! Parts of the book were kind of corny. But I think that is more because of the narrator. It sounded like cartoon characters. If anyone has ever heard the Pikachu cartoon, then you know exactly how the characters sound. (unfortunately, I am very familiar with how Pikachu sounds, because my children have tortured me on a daily bases for years with this cartoon!) The different voices and ranges are good, but most of the female voices sounded like peppy little pikachu characters hyped on an energy drink. The hero and heroine have deeper voices. Thank God! I think I would have liked the book more if I had read it.

    I will probably purchase other books by the author as a kindle book. So this book was still worth it because it introduced me to another writer :).

    This is a great addition to the collection. I was scared for a moment about half way through the book because I thought that this was the end. But take a deep breath, stay calm, hope is alive! lol We have more additions coming up :). Or at least it’s not the end. There is no need to go into details (mainly because everyone else has already done that) this is just a wonderful story and I look forward to each and every addition. I love Kate and I love Curran. I spend all year wishing for the months to past, waiting for the new book to come out, listen to it in one to two settings and then (sigh!) starting the wait back over again. It is a fantastic world that I love visiting.

    Thank you llona Andrews for sharing your world with us.
    Renee Raudman thank you for making that world come alive.
    The combination of IA's writing and RR's narrating is a magical experience!

    I liked the characters. The heroine was strong without being a She-ra. Don't you hate whiny heroines? She was smart and likeable. The hero was strong without being cold and uncaring. You really emphasized with the hero's childhood. This series reminds me of Christine Feehan's GhostWalker series. The series has action and an intriguing plot. Kept my interest enough that I looked for the second in the series. (Not on Audible yet :( ) I am putting the book in my wish list so that I can remember to check for the second book.

    Rebecca Zanetti was nice enough to include an excerpt from the second book in this one.

    I also liked the voices. Karen White did an excellent job!

    This one was worth my credit :)

    Sorin of Firewall lives in a land forever at war. In fact, the Starian men are so busy fighting, their marriage ceremony has been reduced to a 'will of the gods' event where they simply pick a woman out of a lineup and claim her as a wife. With women becoming scarce, it's necessary to trade the offworld Divinity Corporation for brides. Duty-bound to attend the ceremony, he has no intention of picking a bride, let alone one from another dimension. That is, until he sees Lilith, the bewitching woman sent by the gods to reward - or punish? - him...

    First, I like an erotic story just like the next lady, but I like strong heroines. I wouldn't be so irritated with this book, if I didn't think it had good potential. The heroine is extremely weak. Let me preface this with the fact that I am on chapter 13 out of 19, so there is a chance that the woman will grow a freakin’ backbone. If I hear one more time, "I don't belong here" I am going to scream.
    Okay Lilith's job is an analyst who jumps dimensions. So after being kidnapped and taken to another dimension she is not paralyzed with fear. I thought this was a great start. But I quickly grew bored with all the inner whining. Like, “Oh he won’t spend the night with me, but she didn’t have the balls to tell him she wanted him to stay.” I guess my problem is either get angry and decided to leave or freakin’ fall in love and decided to stay. One of the things that I found curious is the author made the point to emphasis that she has been trained to observe people and worlds, but she remains so misunderstood, because she can’t open her damned mouth and tell him how she feels. If the woman was stronger I think I would have really enjoyed this book. As it is I probably would have booted her a%$ back to her dimension.
    Again, there is a chance that the book will get better. I am more than half way through and I want to punch her. What is bad about me giving a review before finishing the book is that if it gets better and makes it worthwhile, then I have not given it a chance. I wish Audible allowed me to give updates. But I am so irritated that I couldn’t help myself!!!
    Although I will say that Rebecca Cook is a good Narrator.


    I will make sure I read the next erotic book on Amazon for less than 2.00 or 3.00 then I won’t feel bad if I skip parts because they bore me. Listening to this one was not worth my credit.

    I liked the plot and this book really could have been exciting. 1. I did not like all of the inner monologue. At least 40 percent of the book was the main characters talking to themselves and not to each other. It seemed as if they went over and over the same thing, which made the book boring to me. 2. I can't believe that there were whole areas where the author went on and on about the food, in detail, long boring details about how good the juice was and how wonderful the tastes were. Really?! 3. The book goes on and on about how overwhelmed she is by the emotions around her and her gift/curse.
    Okay so the heroine has a gift that allows her to touch people and know what they are feeling. So she has a patient, Patient # 9, that has been betrayed and maybe chemically suppressed and he has become her test subject for dementia. And through touching him, she realizes that he should not be a patient and he has been kidnapped and betrayed and in her lab against his will. So he somehow conveys that she needs to find his team. So she goes on a trip to find the team. All of this is good except that it took too freakin LONG to get to the point. All of this was convey in chapter 1 - 10 just to get to this point. The book is ONLY 15 chapters! You could have really cut out 5 chapters of inner dialogue and still have gotten to this point! So again, I liked the plot and if I had been reading this, I would have skipped all that junk, but when you are listening, if you fast forward, you may really miss something. It makes me really impatient and irritated because I really want to FF past all of the flowery inner dialogue. So it takes until chapter 10 before she finally explains to the hero how she was able to find him and what her gift was.
    The only suspense I felt was, when she would get to the freakin point. Because it took so long for her to explain about her gift to the hero, that I didn't even care to hear about it by the time she got there. So when I downloaded this I downloaded book 1 and 2, at this point, I have returned book 2 and I am going to make myself finish this freakin book! Hopefully, now that she has gotten to the point maybe the book will pick up.

    So no so far I don't like it. It was not worth my credit. And I totally see that I am in the minority, lol, and that is okay with me. Again, remember this is just my opinion.

    AB knocked it out the park again. Great follow up. I am still in love with all the interesting characters and we have a few more that get introduced in this book. No matter what, you do not have to worry about cookie cutter characters here. I was totally submerged in the plot. I really like how AB builds up the bad guys and you get immense satisfaction when they get what’s coming to them. I agree with the reader who said that Meg was not your typical SF heroine, but I guess Simon is bad*#%ed enough for both of them. We get a hint of romance for Meg, but it is not full blown yet. I can't wait for the third book, because I defiantly want to see how the romance develops.
    As always Anne Bishop’s books are worth your time and your credits!

    The last thing patrol cop Kate Prospero expected to find on her nightly rounds was a werewolf covered in the blood of his latest victim. But then, she also didn't expect that shooting him would land her in the crosshairs of a Magic Enforcement Agency task force, who wants to know why she killed their lead snitch. The more Prospero learns about the dangerous new potion the MEA is investigating, the more she's convinced that earning a spot on their task force is the career break she's been wanting. But getting the assignment proves much easier than solving the case.

    Magic, hot men and an awesome kick a$# heroine! What's not to love? Jaye Wells set us up for a great new series. This book had an intricate plot with good world building. I am not too sure who is going to be the hero to the heroine. I think it is going to be interesting to see who is going to take the starring role. So no overt romance in the first book, it’s like the anticipation before you get on the roller coaster. In this first book we get a glimpse of past interest highlighted with one man (past lover) and possible future interest with the other (new partner). There is a full cast of secondary characters that are being fleshed out. I am looking forward to the second book. It will definitely be on my wish list :)

    Worth my credit :)

    Witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan knows magic - earth, ley line, even the forbidden demon magic - and that knowledge has saved her life more than once. But now something - or someone - is attacking Cincinnati and the Hollows, causing spells to backfire or go horribly wrong while living vampires attack humans and Inderlanders alike. The pressures build when the city is quarantined to contain the unreliable magic, and Rachel must stop the attacks before the undead vampire masters who keep the rest of the undead under control are lost and it becomes all-out supernatural war.

    I waited a long time for this (it seemed like forever!) and Ms. Harrison delivered as always :) I totally enjoyed the book. I always like the idea of Rachel and Trent being together, even way back when he put her in the rat's cage! (I think it was a rat, hamster..or rodent of some kind...humm may have to start back over and listen to it again :)) I was really pulling for Ivy....never felt good about Rachel and Ivy hooking up, lol but it was tempting :) Who I was excited about was Nute (sp?) I liked her/his role in the story a lot better than past ones. It seemed like everyone was content or happy except for Al, poor demon. And for all the action junkies, yes we had shoot-um up, blow-um up and knock-um down action. Oh, and I LOVED the mystics! Just imagine what trouble Rachel could get into with new powers from the mystics? ( hint, hint, and a wink) This addition to the series was a good as gorging on chocolate and almonds and finding out you lost 5 pounds because of it!
