Yes, I love Robert Petkoff accents, he is so fun to listen to.
I love the whole Lore world, I love the mix-match love pairs, I love Nix she is hilarious
He does such perfect accents, I don't have a complete favorite...I think he does the most hot and perfect Lykae voices. Really wish Audiobooks would get the complete IAD series!
Obsession is only the beginning
Need the complete series! get on it Audiobooks!...please ;-)
The story is actually creative, teenager Isis has an encounter with the paranormal in her dreams that come to life only to discover that she is paranormal herself. I would recommend getting this book in print, because the narration bought the book down several pegs! This is hands down by far the worse narrator I have ever encountered on audio, that is saying something because I have a vast audio library. One of the first rules in performance is if you are not trained in language accents then don't do it! Her male voices sounded like slow witted giants, it was just awful and painful to listen to. I would pass on the audio book and get it on kindle or paper and spare your ears.
What if retro-active abortion was legal? In this not too distant future parents can legally have their troublesome teen retroactively aborted between the ages of 13 to 18. To avoid the it being murder, every part of the unwind teen must be kept alive and used it transplantation purposes. This book journey's with 3 teens slated to be unwind. The first is Connor a troubled 16 year old boy who discovers his parents signed copy of his unwinding order right before Thanksgiving and his parents and little brothers plane tickets to the Bahamas the day after he was due to be unwind. Connor decides to flee before the Juvenile cops collect him. On the road of running away his past crosses with another girl 15 Risa who is a state owned kid and is slated to be unwind because of state budgets cuts, and Connor also runs into 13 year old boy Lev who is being unwind because he is a religious tithe and was slated to be unwind since the day he was born. The book is definitely interesting and is a conversation starter. If you are looking for something different, look no further.
Not bad very seductive book. It is similar to FSOG but more realistic. Sophie Black is a 32 year old PA for a construction company that applies for a new PA job for Lucien Knight, founder of Knight Industries which makes sex toys. Conservative Ms. Black world gets hot and steamy and turns upside down with acceptance with this new job. Not complete 5 stars because there is a part where there is too much sex at one time, I like the sex spread out a little bit. And the use of the word "knickers" That word is not sexy at all, and only reminds me of granny panties. Besides those two things it still is a good book and it ends on a cliffhanger and screams for you to continue on the next book, which is what I'm going to do.
Celaena Sardothien is now the hated tyrant King's personal assassin. The King is sending Celaena out to kill anyone that may oppose his rule. As Celaena encounters people on the King's hit-list more information is revealed on how the King really gained his power. Celaena is faced with her past revealed and her future destiny, her relationship with the captain of the guard and the crown prince. This series is very well written and I alright pre-ordered the next book. Can't wait... this is a very credit worthy series!
I loved Forever His. I loved the fantasy aspect of a time traveling woman that finds love in the past and has to over come the obstacles of being a futuristic woman living in the past. His Forbidden Touch is nothing like that, its just a plain old historical romance. It still was a good story, but I was hoping for something like the first book. The only connection between the first book and the second is Royce the main character was friends with Sir Gaston from the first book. So I was a little disappointed with this one.
I'm not into degradation of women books and I have a feeling this is what this series is all about. Not only is there an 18 year age difference between the couple Ava and Deuce that claim to love each other, but have no problem cheating and sleeping around. I found it funny when Deuce beats up teenagers for talking disrespectful about women when everyone including Deuce is disrespectful to women. It was completely acceptable to be married and to sleep around with "club whores" Ava personally caught Deuce with other women about 3 times. Its like have self-respect for yourself ladies and stop putting up with this crap. I'm not into these type of stories and I'm going to pass on the rest of the series...it's not for me.
The banter in this book is phenomenally funny. I literally laughed out loud several time. Hot shot young investment banker Drew Evans gets thrown off his male chauvinist game when he falls for off limits new engaged co-worker Kate Brooks. The book is a journey of Drew falling in love for the first time and making all the wrong mistakes that a middle schooler would make and you are just laughing the whole way through. I am currently making my husband listen to the book. I think this book would make an awesome movie. It is credit worthy but it's not expensive. Again very funny, if you are listening in public beware you will laugh out loud.
The story is actually one of self-blooming and becoming your true self. Nicola an art dealer in London she has a psychic gift where she gets visions by touching objects. Nicola was groomed growing up by her grandfather to never reveal her gift to anyone. One day a woman comes in with a priceless carved Firebird with a tale that it was given to her ancestor by Catherine the Great. Nicola knows this to be true by touching the object but nor the woman or Nicola can prove the worth of the Firebird. Nicola decides to go on a mission to find the proof needed to validate the worth of the Firebird, with such self doubt on her own skills, Nicola seeks the help of another psychic her ex-boyfriend Rob. Then Nicola's journey begins. The book is a gem. The narrator is awesome she pulls off male / female, British, Scottish, Irish and Russian accents and she even sings when the characters do...bravo! very credit worthy.
I LOVED IT! I like to dapple in YA books and I was pleasantly surprise to come across this gem of a story ( I couldn't help the pun ). Great paranormal mystery, across between time travelers wife and Harry Potter. Gwen at 16 finds herself blinking back to the past, gift with the time travel gene she hurtled into life of mysterious secret society where she is cautioned not to trust anyone, not even her own feeling. Buy all 3 at once because this is a non-stop listen.
It's 1850's steam punk teenage Indiana Jones. I love it, unpolished 14 year girl gets recruited to a secret spy "finishing school" to learn etiquette and espionage. Very fun and enjoyable listen. Definitely getting the next one.
