Well, if you've listened to the rest of the series then you know what you're gonna get - were-shifter towns, their inhabitants, their problems and fit bodied males (check out the cover girls - well if we have to dream let's dream big!!).
Right from Chapter 1 this draws you in as Eric (alpha were-snowleopard in his 'cat' form) stalks Iona (were-panther in her 'cat' form) through rugged terrain, finally catching and pouncing on her. She is an unclaimed and unmated female who's releasing some strong 'come and get me boys' pheromones and he's picked up her delicious scent and is only too happy to oblige..... but she is fighting her feline frenzy questioning who and what she is. There's a lot of sexual and physical attraction so Eric has to wait to claim her - but can he do it before other wereshifters pick up her enticing scent.
Interesting likeable characters along with some not so nice wolf shifters who become involved in a great storyline that has many subplots - namely; turf war, Alpha dominance, kidnapping (or should I say cubnapping), genetic engineering and, of course, the sexy, lustful romance between Eric and Iona.
Worth a credit? This was a very enjoyable and entertaining paranormal listen so that would make it a undeniable YES to the book and, if you haven't already listened to the others in the series (and you like the genre), then it's a YES x 4 to the whole series. So, do yourselves a favour and download them all - however, this could have been a stand-alone listen but hey life's short why deprive yourselves - download them all then give the tv remote to your husband, order in, get a babysitter (if needed), turn your phone off then my friends..... just sit back and ENJOY.
Lucian is sexy, rich, gorgeous, successful, a womaniser and has a heartbreaking past because the love of his life, Darcy, devastated his life when they were in their teens. Now decades later, she's trying to make amends and hoping for more but he just wants revenge….. that is until he sees her.
First there's angst, then the chemistry kicks in between them, followed by forgiveness, sex, understanding, character development and finally a deep love. But along the way are terrible heartbreaking secrets, treachery, murder, plot twists, Ember and Trace's tearful sub story that has some trauma filled parts, shocks and surprises and lots of secondary characters. The romance built at a nice pace and then together they faced all the unfolding never ending dramas.
Best listened to after Book 1.
Worth a credit? It was a well written and enjoyable bitter-sweet love story that kept my attention as I was happily entertained for nearly 10 hours and it was only $7.34, yes $7.34… what a bargain so no need to spend those precious credits (but if I had then I would still be one happy listener).
What a great ending to Connor and Ellery's story. There's angst, lots of dramas, great characters, good narration, very romantic, a super sexy drool-worthy perfect Hero and a very enjoyable and emotional love story that spanned years.
Worth a credit? I was very sad to say farewell to all the characters within this series, I shall miss them all, and YES very creditworthy.
Same story told from Connor's POV then with the additional Chapters on the Wedding, pregnancy and new house etc., which were all lovely and very romantic.
But I still found little bits of info missing like there was a real build up that Connor was to choose the song for their first dance at the wedding and she cried when the first notes played.... but it would have been nice to actually have given a song title for the listener to romanticise over the scene better.
Great male narration.
Worth a credit? Although you knew what was going to happen it was still very informative to listen to Connor's side of the story which has made him an even greater Hero in my eyes and YES a lovely, annoying, frustrating, beautiful and creditworthy addition to my ever growing library.
I see that this book has very mixed reviews so I guess it's not for everyone but I really enjoyed it. Right from the start it drew me in with it's secrets, it's twists, it's damaged characters, it's heartache and it's bitter-sweet love story.
I loved the sexy misunderstood drool-worthy Hero Connor once he opened up and the feisty, funny Heroine Ellery however she did sometimes annoy me with her quick to judge attitude later in the story. There was fun, intrigue, character growth, mild sex and some really touching scenes as they both began to open up and accept each other and let trust and love in.
Worth the credit? It was a bit 'choppy' in places, the friend's voice was too high and there was a few things that weren't explained but I easily overlooked them as I was enjoying the listen so much.... so YES another creditworthy listen.
This is one sugary sweet, romantic and sigh-worthy listen and, as Ella and Porter's love story unfolded, I was drawn into their passion, desires, tender love scenes and the painful dilemma that these two loveable characters faced.
But what I wasn't prepared for was the shocking events that this author had lying waiting for the happy unsuspecting listener in the last few chapters which were dramatic, raw, heart wrenching and all my WTF's, OMG's and tears couldn't take away the heartache of this torturous CLIFFHANGER ending. I only hope Audible can follow up with book two very very very very quickly.
Worth a credit? Loveable H/H and secondary characters, some angst, sex, drama, a bitter ex and, of course the cliffhanger, makes this a very creditworthy listen. But if you're not a fan of the fast 'instant love' plot or one that's filled with sweet sentiments, tender gestures and a very romantic story then maybe pass on this one.
As this started I really didn't think I was going to like it as the sexy Navy Seal Hero Maverick was an arrogant ass... ok he had good reasons as he was gorgeous, fit, had an eight pack and dimples but his personality sucked. He was arrogant, crude, had a really bad attitude towards women and was a real man-whore with all willing female partners. That is until the down-to-earth feisty Heroine Windsor didn't fall for his many charms and so his challenge began.
But, Maverick's caring side soon came out as Windsor's kind nature slowly made him rethink his game, thankfully he underwent great character growth and they both came from troubled families so they had a lot in common apart from their sizzling attraction for each other. However, Windsor's denial of her true feeling was going to have a devastating impact on so many lives.
This book packed so much in, there was the roller-coaster of emotions that the entertaining romance between Maverick and Windsor stirred up, passion and plenty of sex scenes, some likeable secondary characters, secrets, a shocking and tear jerking OMG fatality, twists, suspense and plenty of heartache as well as some really romantic moments. In the end, love and time played their part enabling Maverick to overcome his demons so he and Windsor could get their much deserved HEA ending.
Worth a credit? I really enjoyed this listen so it's a YES and if there's a continuation into a full on series then they'll be an auto buy for me. Narration was good too.
What a great start to a whole new Vampire world where they, and Werewolves, walk freely amongst us humans. New myths, cultures, lores, creatures and amazing characters are slowly unfolded as the story and romance nicely progresses.
Handsome, sexy, drool-worthy Angel, ahhh, Angel he's a Rock God and, along with his fellow Band members, are all Vampires but there's no groupies or darkness they all just seem pretty normal (with a few quirks) and he is also California's Clan Leader over the Vampires. Brea is a feisty when angry redheaded Waitress who fears the paranormals but when she's about to take Angel's order one night and their eyes lock it's the start of something life altering for both of them. Delicious scenes unfold as Angel proves his weakness for Brea.
Great romance, sex, an evil villain or two who want Angel's job, a Vampire serial murderer, thrills, intrigue, suspense, fights, funny bits and some interesting, loveable and amusing secondary characters all get tossed into this enjoyable listen. Narrator's voice for Angel's character was just so sexy.
Worth a credit? I thought I had become a bit tired of Vampire romances..... but, after this, I was very wrong so DJ please keep em coming and YES creditworthy and a 'lighter' side to Vamps.
This is a light, fairly fluffy Contemporary romance about 6 Billionaires who have formed a Secret Society to help in their business ventures and to meet to play Poker. However, the single members are now dwindling and this story is about the 4th Billionaire to eventually give in to love's pull.
Griffin is a snobby jerk who is treated like a King and is a member of royalty back in his home country and that's where he's headed but he needs a temporary Assistant. Maylee is a no-nonsence down-to-earth hillbilly type and, at first Griffin hates everything about her. But slowly, as he gets to know her…. well you know what's gonna happen and the simmering attraction finally (and eventually) led to a few sex scenes and a romance. Narration was slow and I didn't like Griffin's upper crust accent.
Worth a credit? This is the first one of the series that I couldn't connect to the characters or believe in their romance. Yes it was funny and Maylee was likeable but Griffin's character growth never happened until near the end and the sex was blah so for those reasons I would have to say not worth my credit but if you're in the mood for a Contemporary, fun, unbelievable plot, or if you're following the series, then go for it. They could all be stand-alone listens.
After JEM's This Man trilogy I thought we'd seen the best of her imaginative, emotion filled, erotic and twisted love stories but this, phew, this was a very highly charged ride through the attraction and passion of two mentally tortured people's lives and the people who surround them. And, as their lives both inevitably entwine, the listener is gifted with troubled waters of secrets, insecurities, drama, obsession, heartache, more secrets, revelations, suspense and lots and lots of intrigue.
No words can describe just how emotional this book is as it's flawed characters are loveable in their own way and very needy of each other but the many twists that fate deals them can result in only one thing..... DEVASTATION. And that's how I felt at the end of the raw bitter cliffhanger, an open mouthed shocked gasp as yet another twist was oh so cleverly tossed in.
Worth the credit? I am writing this Review knowing I'm going to be late for a shopping trip with a friend but I just had to get my words and feelings out about this listen whose character's lives has only let me get about 2 hours sleep because I didn't want to stop the intense mystery with a destination unknown, damaged characters and a deep unhealthy, yet compelling, love story. I would have gladly used two credits on this listen, so YES very creditworthy and, if book 2 is out in print, I'm even considering READING, yes actually reading it, because the storyline and characters are just that gripping. If you get this listen be prepared to become a Malpas groupie and what a great team she, and Edita Brychta made.
What I was expecting was a MC badass biker gang, hot sex, old ladies, patches and some hot Alpha type guys. However, what I got was mainly a Murder/Mystery with a Hero who had once formed an easy going innocent Biker Club (now disbanded) with friends when they were all much younger. Now he's sure one of those friends had just been murdered.
Vince is a tattooed, sexy, drool-worthy hard-ass Alpha type who's been in trouble before, he's got a dirty mind and a mouth to match it and he's got quick and snappy dialogue too and when he sees Kim he knows he wants her in the worst (or best) way. He denied the romance but was all in for the desire and sex but it was interwoven with the main plot line of murders, cover-ups, mystery, suspense, with paranormal visions, a few hot sex scenes, some interesting secondary characters and eventually the I love you's happened but I just didn't feel any romance.
Narrator had a very gravelly voice like he'd smoked 40 a day so his female voices suffered for it.
Worth a credit? This had a bit too much murder/mystery to the plot than I personally like and the plot line doesn't conclude but will continue in further books but I don't think I'll be following this series, not because it's not good, but because it just doesn't 'fit' with my own personal romantic taste.
