The relationship between Griffin & Michael; Soren's cunning throughout the entire story. I grew to admire and love Soren much more in this book.
The twists and turns; the fact that Soren's and Nora's relationship kept me on the edge as well as Suzanne's involvement and investigation. The end was amazing.
No. I think it was a bad decision to change from Aeron James to Miss Rhodes. Aeron, I think, did a much better job with the male voices, especially Soren's. I really got used to his narration in Siren and it was difficult to hear the changed voices - it was like the people had changed, at first.
Both. I was kept on the edge of my seat.
Would like to see more from this autho. Would like a better match, however, between author and narrator.
I loved Jenna & Brock's story, not too different from all the other couples' stories, but great just the same. They, like all the breed and breed mates thus far and, I'm sure, those in future stories deserve happiness.
The stories/books just keep getting better and better.
Thanks Lara Adrian & Hilary Huber for taking us to a realm and reality that can jettison us into a space beyond our own world where we can wile away some of the monotony of our mundane lives & venture into the world of intrigue that is far beyond what everyday life can offer, even if only for the duration of this series. Who doesn't want an alpha male who is uber protective, gentle, kind, sensitive and holds his female in utmost regard above all else.
I absolutely love this series and for the first time listening to a series I hoped that it just kept going, never ending…but, that said, this book #9 came to a too abrupt end. I was hoping, after having waited for Hunter & Corrine's story, that we'd get to be at least a few steps closer to an HEA ending, but alas, we don't know what's happening with them or with them & Nathan. Hoping that in future Books we'll get to find out; I really wanted to hear of Hunter & Corrine having an HEA. Call me a hopeless romantic, but they, of all people (Breed & Breed Mate) deserved it.
I agree with some of the reviews about NML's narration being stilted and seemingly unemotional but I must say that the voices and expressions of the various characters in this intriguing story are amazing, especially the female voices and drunken stuttering of Maggo (sp). As the story progressed NML's narration got better and in my estimation, the stiltedness was a description of who T'Ash was (is).
I'm hoping that this story really is the beginning of a new & exciting series as this is a new author for me. RDO must have an amazing imagination and ability to not just write a PNR copy of the masters such as Donna Grant, J.R. Ward, Lara Adrian, etc.
I liked the story ok, but the narration was a bit difficult to get through. If I had not already been following this series and like Jessica Clare, I would not have struggled through. The male and female voices were exactly the same in some of the narration and too close to the same to enjoy the difference in others. The same narrator was used for all of the books but she just didn't work this time.
The storyline was a bit predictable after Nick and Emma see each other again, but RJ does an outstanding job of portraying feelings and sentiment. Claire Bocking's narration/performance, better put, gets more amazing with each story. If she is ever replaced as the performer of RJ's books it will be a shame and betrayal.
I loved that Nick was soft, gentle, considerate and kind as are all of the New Zealand Rugby players as depicted by the author; not at all a "big-headed famous sports player, like a lot of american football players seem to be.
Nonetheless, I really liked the story and could listen to the accent and the words Kiwi's use for different things. Please give us the rest of the series.
I wasn't sure at first if this book actually deserved any kind of review but after giving some thought to it I realized that if I could save someone the time it takes to return it to Audible after spending precious dollars or credits on it then it was time well spent in writing the review.
This book, in my opinion, has absolutely no redeeming qualities. I have read/listened to many MC books; most of which were raw, gritty, containing group sex, orgies, bad guys, worse guys, club whores, (well, you get the picture), but all had someone, most times, the H/H that had some heart, kindness and concern. The hero, and I use the term loosely, in this book was, simply put, an uncaring, heartless creep. Granted, I must admit, I did not finish the book as I didn't want to spend my time in doing so, but I just couldn't after listening to the 9 1/2 chapters and 4 hours and then going back and reading the reviews of those who did finish. I love a good hardcore MC story, but come on Ms. Begley. I'm not sure what you were trying to portray or say but I just don't get it. I get a "mean to the shy & different girl when she was a teen, vibe", yuck. This author is a definite "no go" any further for me.
I thought the story was pretty good and really liked the new "take" on the vampire/paranormal world. That said it took awhile, actually a long while to get to a point at which I wasn't tempted to put an end to listening - the narration was not awful, but it wasn't great either. It sounds to me like LS has the potential to be a good narrator, but it definitely sounded like she was reading instead performing. The different accents were pretty good, I'll give her that
Wow, I couldn't believe the abrupt ending - not even an epilogue or hint of an ending; was a bit startling. Sure glad book 2 was out when I started listening to book 1 or I might have run screaming from the room (actually I was in my car) with a vow never to listen to this author again.
Overall I gave the book 3 stars - with a better narration I certainly would have pushed it to 4.
I enjoyed getting to know the MacKade brothers, their ghosts and the battle of Antietam. I am somewhat of a history buff and knew nothing about this northern most battle. The brothers' stories which incorporate the battle make me want to take a vacation.
Rafe's story was great as was Regan's "intrusion" into it. Now that we've met the brothers, can't wait to hear how their lives are changed by a "good woman".
I liked that this story was a bit different from the first two, still very enjoyable and still CB does an amazing job. My hope is that Audible snags as many of the Escape to New Zealand series as RJ writes and hope my vacation is not over yet.
Again, the story was good, accent was better and hope we see more. The character development is not the only thing that is good, the description of New Zealand, its beaches and countryside seemed to take on character as well.
