I really enjoyed this book and when it was done, I immediately wanted to hear more. The only reason that it did not get 5 stars from me was that the story itself became a little bit plodding right through the middle. But overall, it was a great story and a great listen....not the typical vampire story redone. There were fresh elements, but it stuck close enough to the "normal" vampire lore to be recognizable. There was, surprisingly, a lot of suspense and the combination of the author and narrator kept me in it until the very end.
It is not often that I will write a review if I don't care for a book, but this one I had to write. I have been waiting and waiting for Nick's story to be written and was so excited when I saw that it was being released. While the book itself could have been better, I would have been fine with it had it not been for the awful narration. Please go back to Kirsten Potter for this series. She portrays the characters so much better and, unlike this narration, you can actually tell the difference between the male and female characters when they are speaking. This narrator made this story totally unenjoyable for me. :-(
I have listened to every book in this series and I think this one may just be the best so far. I have been waiting with baited breath for the stories of Will and Munroe and this one did not disappoint. The chemistry between Will and Chloe was fantastic. The story was in turns witty, fun, engaging, sweet and very romantic. And the two of them were totally believable together.
The narrator and the way he performed the characters was the icing on the cake. I loved the way that he made Will and Munroe sound so much alike yet just slightly different enough from each other that I could tell when he was doing one character versus the other. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the performance of the narrator and I can't wait to hear from Munroe in the next book. That little excerpt at the end left me chomping at the bit.
The narrator sounded like she had a speech impediment and her tone was monotonous for approximately 60% of the book. She didn't liven up until near the end. It made the listening unbearable.
The leading lady was definitely my favorite character.
I did not enjoy the narrator AT ALL.
I thought that the story was awesome. The characters had a lot of charm and wit. I will probably try to purchase the book and read it. I just didn't enjoy the audiobook because of the narrator.
