    Nicolai the Vampire was renowned for his virility, but in a twist of fate “The Dark Seducer” had become a sex slave in the kingdom of Delfina - stripped of his precious timepiece andhis memory. All that remained was a primal need for freedom, revenge - and the only woman who could help him. In her dreams, a wanton vampire called to Jane Parker, drawing her to his dark sexuality and his magical realm. But for a human, all was not a fairy tale in Delfina. Jane was the key to Nicolai’s memory… but exploiting her meant dooming the only mortal he craved.

    Story

    The story line is...okay. Not as good as some of Gena Showalters other work but I can see where there is potential there. However, the narrator did such a horrible job with the male voices that I think it was hard for me to really get into the book.

    Genvieve Bevier made the main male character sound like a cyborb with down's syndrome. No passion at all.

    I will think twice before I purchase another book that she narrates.

    When Cait Douglass resolves to get over her broken heart, throw off her inhibitions, and start really living, she's unprepared for the two sensual men who cross her path. Torn between them, she doesn't know which to choose - or what kind of dire consequences could follow. Jim Heron, fallen angel and reluctant savior, is ahead in the war, but he puts everything at risk when he seeks to make a deal with the devil - literally.

    Story

    After falling in love with the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by JR Ward I eagerly began to read The Fallen Angels series hoping it would grab me just like BDB. But that just isn't the case. I've read each book in the series and each time I it is like pulling teeth to get through them. Typically I binge read (listen) to books but not these. They tend to take at least a week for me to get through and when I finish I feel a sense of relief.

    Needless to say, this series is a HUGE struggle for me to get through and Possession was no different. Yes, the story is interesting and has a unique twist...but there if just *something* missing for me.

    If you love the BDB series as I do don't assume this series and book are the same. They just aren't the same.

    Centuries ago Acheron saved the human race by imprisoning an ancient evil bent on absolute destruction. Now that evil has been unleashed and it is out for revenge. As the twin to Acheron, Styxx hasn’t always been on his brother's side. They've spent more centuries going at each other's throats than protecting their backs. Now Styxx has a chance to prove his loyalty to his brother, but only if he's willing to trade his life and future for Acheron's.

    Story

    Wow, if you have read the Dark-Hunter series you know about the horrible pre-God life of Acheron, but you don't really know about his brother Styxx. You only know what Ach thought or was told to think.

    Remember, there are always three sides to every story, yours, theirs, and the truth somewhere in the middle. This is Styxx story which is full of sadness and cruelty.

    Bring a kleenex as you listen because from beginning to end this is a tear jerker.

    Years ago, Evangeline Hollis spent a blistering night with a darkly seductive man she can’t forget. But that evening of addictive pleasure has become a disaster of biblical proportions: She’s been branded with the Mark of Cain. Now Eve is thrust into a world where sinners are marked and drafted to kill demons. Her former one-night stand, Cain, is now her mentor - and his equally sexy brother Abel is her new boss.

    This is a very interesting story on an old classic. It kept me entertained the whole way through. But, I had a very hard time hearing the lower register voice of the narrator. Even with my noise canceling headphones I had to turn the volume up almost all the way to hear the mens voice but that in turn made the womens voice super loud!

    I've been a fan of Kresley Cole for many years. When I saw she wrote a YA novel I wasn't sure I wanted to read it because YA is not my thing. But I decided to give it a chance and I LOVED THE BOOK! The story is amazing, intriguing, and left me wanting more. You won't be disappointed if you spend your credit on this book ;)

    I purchased this book and the first one together and after not being able to listen to the first one at all due to the narrator I didn't even attempt to listen to this one. Instead I purchased the books to read on my nook and it was much better.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    I purchased the first and last book of this series on Audible before I had listened to the sample of the book. When I finally did try to listen to the book I couldn't get past the narration. Becca Battoe sounds like a little girl and it felt sick and wrong to listen to her talk about Gray touching her "down there".

    I ended up purchasing these books to read on my nook and joyed it much more.

    Five hundred years have passed since the devastating demon-led war that tore apart the United States, leaving nothing but scorched and poisoned ruins, and nearly exterminating humankind. Those who escaped the carnage and blight were led to sanctuary by the boy savior known as the Hawk - the gypsy morph. In an idyllic valley, its borders warded by powerful magic against the horrors beyond, humans, Elves, and mutants alike found a place they believed would be their home forever.

    I listen to a LOT of audiobooks. My profession allows for me to work and listen to audiobooks at the same time. I need a book that is going to keep my attention and entertain me. Usually, I finish a 13 hour book in a day and a half...this one is only 13.5 hours and I am on my fifth day listening to it and I am only 1/2 of the way through. It is so terribly boring!

    As for the narration, I actually really enjoy the way Phil Gigante narrates so that was the best part for me.

    IMHO:Save your credits and borrow this book from the library.

    Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.

    I have listened to this book at least 4 times since I purchased it. I can just not get enough of Jaime and Clair. Plus, Davina Porter is one of the best Narrators I have listened to and I listen to a LOT of books.

    The book is classic Diana Gabaldon style (love, adventure, tension, war, death), however, it seemed to me like the last 2 hours of the book were a whirlwind of activity and ended with a cliff hanger. Frustrating since it usually takes her 2-3 years to write a book.

    However, I do recommend the book HIGHLY! Start with Outlander and work your way to Echo...you will LOVE IT!

    John Matthew has come a long way since he was found living among humans, his vampire nature unknown. Taken in by The Brotherhood, no one could guess what his true history was-or his true identity. Xhex has long steeled herself against the attraction to John Matthew. Until fate intervenes and she discovers that love, like destiny, is inevitable.

    OMG this is one of the best series I have read. Twilight pales in comparison to these novels. JR Ward brings a wonderful twist to vampires. I also love the masculine characters she has created and the awesome sense of humor she gives each character. I love the story line from start to finish. I am craving more more more after I am done. I cant wait for the next series. It draws you in from the very first book to this book 8 it is awesome!
