The second book in the series was as good as the first. This author weaves a fast paced story with characters that come to life. I'm looking forward to the next book.
Wow! I had to go back and listen a second time, because there were so many surprising twists and turns that I needed to see how I had managed to miss the clues. I gave the story a five for the element of surprise and intricate tale, but if you are looking for steamy romance, this is not for you because that is not the focus.
Great characters and good story line and I will continue to listen to the connected books (Killjoy is next) to see what happens!
Worth your credit.
I typically go for historical romances and am not too big a fan of current romances; however, this series was great. A nice easy listen, low stress, plenty of laughs, steamy sex scenes and last but by no means least, great characters that you can come to love.
As other reviewers noted, Sebastian York is an awesome narrator! But now I am not sure I want to listen to him in anything else, because I think I always want to think of him as Drew!
Worth a credit, but getting them on sale was even better!
The story was a sweet ending to the trilogy. It had enough suspense, intrigue and drama to keep me interested. I also liked the that the focus wasn't so much on the hero/heroine torturing themselves with deprival for the greater good. Yes, there was some but not overkill that was more present in the earlier installments of this trilogy.
Another plus about Foley's writing is that the male leads actually fall in love long before the story is over, which is not something we always see in these books. Usually they hold out till the bitter end or they are faced with death! lol!
The intrigue kept me up at night listening. My only criticism of this one is that the narrator of the first two books in this trilogy did such awesome Italian accents, that this book was a let down in the performance. The narrator is good in her own right, but would have preferred the other one since she added a delightful accent that enriched the characters. Still worth some stars and your credit though!
Once again I became engrossed in Foley's quality writing and Wiley's superb performance. I believe I enjoyed this story more than the first. I think there was less high mindedness and self suffering in the hero this time. Never one to be a spoiler I won't comment further on the actual events, but these two characters are my favorites so far. I actually listened twice. Again Wiley does an excellent job with both male and female voices and her Italian accents are top of the line! I am a little wary of the third story, I see there is a different narrator, but we will see. In the meantime, this one is definitely worth a credit!
I really like Foley's writing. She weaves a tale with characters one can get involved in and the stories have a fair mix of intrigue, drama, humor and steamy scenes. I especially enjoy how she gives you both the hero and heroines view. In this case her writing was strongly complimented by Wiley's narration. I do not believe the story would have been quite as good if it hadn't been performed so brilliantly. Wiley is one of the few narrators who can do both men and women's voices with perfection and her Italian accents were wonderful, hence the reason she got a higher rating than the actual story. I will look for more stories narrated by her, but I doubt any could be as endearing as the story of this group of Italians!!
Typically I am not into the vampire books, but I was looking for something different and grabbed this because it was on sale. I was quite pleasantly surprised by Harper's writing style. Her infusion of humor into her stories makes them a fun read and after reading this I am going to read the rest of the Sleepy Hollow series. For better or worse, I am one of those readers that must read/listen to all the characters stories once I get into a series. While vampire stories still don't rate high on my list overall, Harper's books and the equally fun narrator are the exception and will be part of my library.
I enjoyed this series alot! Fell in love with the brothers and enjoyed each of their stories. Roberts writing is infused with equal amounts of humor, sexy scenes, and interesting characters. It would be hard to pick a favorite character since as the series go one comes to love them all.
It's a light series, not too deep, but interesting enough to keep me listening way too late at night.I would definitely recommend the three books.
I must say I am a fool for an Irish brogue and this narrator did a great job in that regard. The story kept my attention and I enjoyed it. There was a little too much self sacrifice going on for me to give it any more stars, but it was entertaining with a good supporting cast!
I am someone who needs to read a series to the conclusion. This book was OK, not the best, but far from the worst I have listened to. I am just saying that of the three books in this series, this is the weakest story line. It's redeeming qualities are that it tied up the loose ends of a story line that carried nicely through this series of three stories about three brothers. The characters were engaging, but their story was mediocre. However, I was glad to hear Charlie's story. If I had to do it again, I would read this series. Linden's stories entertain me.
I liked the story and was pleased by the fact that it wasn't the typical earl chasing the virginal miss. The characters were interesting. I enjoyed watching the interplay between the main characters contrasting personalities and the way the heroine caused the hero to loosen up. Linden also writes steamy love scenes! Worth the read.
