This series is like a less exciting and less sexy version of the Stephanie Plum series. I like the sexual tension between Lizzy and Diesel but after listening to two books in this series, I need more than just tension to make it interesting ;-)
I would probably recommend the Stephanie Plum series instead. This series reminds of the Stephanie Plum series but is not as exciting (slower pace and no sex). That is a bit disappointing since I really love the Stephanie Plum series and I think that Lorelei King is a great narrator. With that said, it is still an okay story with its funny moments and I still listened to both books in this series while waiting for the next Stephanie Plum book to be released.
I would make it naughtier. Here we have the sexy Diesel sleeping naked in Lizzy's bed every night but nothing ever happens between them and nothing probably ever will happen in the whole series because then one of them will lose their powers. Knowing this, it is hard to stay motivated to stick with the series after listening to the first two books. I also expect the rest of the books to be about finding the rest of the stones which doesn't feel that interesting anymore. Maybe some secondary plots or intrigues would make it more interesting and Lizzy should either get together with Diesel or get a boyfriend.
She brings all the characters to life and is great at portraying different personalities and genders.
I actually did read the follow up book, hoping that it would be more exciting but then I was disappointed, so I would have to say no.
