    Eleven thousand years ago, before the seas swallowed the Atlanteans, Poseidon assigned a few chosen warriors to act as sentinels for humans in the new world. There was only one rule - desiring them was forbidden. But rules were made to be broken.

    Overall

    I love this series and I am very pleased that Audible has picked it up. Alyssa gives us a totally different view of the supernatural world with her Warriors of Poseidon. I really loved her take on the Atlantis mythology and how she adds vamps and weres into the mix. The love story can be a little corny at times, but that, to me, is just a part of the "formal speak" of Conlan's people so it fits.The only thing I was not thrilled with was the narrator. Joshua Swanson has a great tone of voice but I think he kinda of over does it when reading this type of story. His style, to me, would be more for a children's story where the more drama the better. At times through out the story it gets a bit too much. I see that he is slated to do the rest of the series and I can only hope he tones it down a bit, and changes the pronunciation of the word em-path. He sounds like he is saying "M-pith" stressing the M and pith instead of PATH. I know it is silly to mention one single word, but it is just a pet peeve of mine.So, my rating for the book itself is a 5 star but the narration is only 3 star (if that). I will round it out to a 4 star total. (I wish there was a way to give separate ratings and then a final rating). I will probably buy the next book to see if Joshua is any better. If not.............maybe if they go on a $4.99 sale.
    I also need to mention........for those who are not into explicit sex and language, this series may not be for you.

    Anna never knew werewolves existed until the night she survived a violent attack…and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she’d learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. But Anna is that rarest kind of werewolf: an Omega. And one of the most powerful werewolves in the country will recognize her value as a pack member—and as his mate.

    Born and raised to be an emotionless killing machine, Nathan is one of the most lethal Breed vampires in existence. A key member of the Order - an elite group of warriors charged with protecting both mortals and vampires - Nathan executes each mission with flawless precision and a total lack of mercy. Now he must pursue a powerful, hidden enemy. But Nathan's hard discipline and training are no match for the fierce pull he feels toward a young woman he has no right to desire.

    GhostWalker Wyatt Fontenot knows the price he paid for the secret military experiments that gave him his special catlike abilities. After all, he left his bayou home a healer and came back a killer. While Wyatt and his GhostWalker brother Gator may have known exactly the sort of game they were getting into, Wyatt never anticipated where it would lead - or to whom.

    As a glassmaker and a magician-in-training, Opal Cowen understands trial by fire. Now it's time to test her mettle. Someone has sabotaged the Stormdancer clan's glass orbs, killing their most powerful magicians. The Stormdancers--particularly the mysterious and mercurial Kade--require Opal's unique talents to prevent it happening again. But when the mission goes awry, Opal must tap in to a new kind of magic as stunningly potent as it is frightening.

    Hudson Pierce has led a life few others could even imagine. With money and power at his fingertips, he's wanted for almost nothing. He's never experienced love, however, and he's seen few examples of it in his dysfunctional family. The ridiculous notion of romance has always intrigued him. He's studied it, controlled it, manipulated it, and has yet to understand it. Until he meets Alayna Withers. Now, the games he's played in his quest for comprehension can finally come to an end.

    Would you listen to Hudson again? Why?

    Yes. Great story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    After having read the Fixed series from Alayna's POV, it gave a new perspective reading from Hudsons.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All the gifts. You'll have to listen or read the book to know what I mean. I don't give spoilers.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    There are two sides to every story.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed Hudson POV. I wish more authors would do this.

    What did you like about this audiobook?

    YES! I love Cherise Sinclair's books. This is not just an erotica/bdsm book. It has a story to it, and though the first book (in most series), is dedicated to set up and backstory for the series, this one, for me, showed more story than most book 1's. I always have the 2 book rule. If I don't like a series after book 2, I ask for a refund.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    When Jessica walk into the club itself thinking it is a private gym (club), and gets a rude awakening. LOL Classic!


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    Cullen, the bartender. Love the accent.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Towards the end...tears. I don't give spoilers.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    I hope the rest of the series is coming out SOON!

    Would you listen to Broken Soul again? Why?

    Absolutely! I am listening for the 2nd time right now. Faith Hunter's are my go to books when I need to feel something familiar.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Broken Soul?

    I won't do spoilers here. Suffice it to say that there are MANY!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Again no spoilers, but I will say, I loved the action scene where the line "Who was that masked man?) was used. It wasn't my favorite but know Broken Soul was loaded with them. (Again, I don't do spoilers).


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughter and tears both, and I always have extreme reaction to Khristine Hvam's awesome narration. No one else could do this series other than Khristine because she is Jane Yellowrock and the entire cast of characters.


    Any additional comments?

    I will ALWAYS read Faith and listen to Khristine. They make an awesome team.One other thing...while listening and reading along I did find almost 2 pages missing of narration when they went to level 4 for the first time. I just thought I would let y'all at Audible know.

    Brie's life changes the day Sir comes to her tiny tobacco shop. His invitation to the Submissive Training Center is about to rock this young woman's world. The renowned school is famous for its elite submissive instruction. She has no idea what will be asked of her or the boundaries that will be pushed. One thing is certain: Brie is about to learn more about herself in six weeks than she has over the previous 22 years.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, to those who enjoy erotica. Why? I think this book has a good fictional story line as well as it being informative.


    What other book might you compare Brie Learns the Art of Submission: Submissive Training Center to and why?

    Many might say the Fifty Shades Trilogy because of the BDSM. Personally, I think it stands alone, other than the other Brie book that takes place right after graduation, a book I hope to hear on Audible very soon.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Actually with Brie and Tono and the art of Kinbaku.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Not your normal training school.


    Any additional comments?

    I think Pippa Jayne did an excellent job with the narration. I hope the next book is on audio soon.
