I love Maya Banks, don't get me wrong, however, I would like to see a series where the beautiful, hunky, stacked, sexy men who are the leads in her books are something other than brooding (although that has its own sex appeal) and determined not to have relationships men.
I loved the ending. I always love Ms. Banks' endings.
I would. However, it took a ways through the "listen" to get used to him. I think there are other men who could have done a much better job with the romance/sex inflections than Mr. Paul. I love Dick Hill's voice - don't know why he doesn't do more romance, but there are others as well. Maybe Mr. Paul could work on his "sexy" man voice.
Well, where do I start…I guess by saying that I have only come across a small handful of authors who are able to write with such passion that the story I am listening to draws me into the world of the characters at such a depth that I feel every emotion described or portrayed. I have cried, sobbed really, laughed; my heart has palpitated with anxiety, felt the depression and despair, the hopelessness and hopefulness. I felt the anger when there was anger, disgust and compassion for an addiction that so often sucks the goodness out of life and oh yeah, that ever demoralizing monster of codependency.
Whew, this trilogy was an emotional roller coaster that was exhausting but well worth the sleepless nights and neglect of everyday mundane chores that would only serve to draw my attention away from seeing how this all played out.
RK Lilley you truly are a remarkable writer. You are one of the best and I look forward to whatever you decide to grace us with next. Thank you.
This book was less than what I expected and hoped for; very little substance. Oh, there was some drama, a little angst, suspicion and redemption, but overall not much to sink ones teeth into. Not a waste of time entirely, but definitely not one I would recommend. I keep trying Diana Palmer's books/audios but her writing just doesn't do anything for me.
PG's narration was pretty good.
This was very much a disappointment for me. I have always really enjoyed RC's books, have read and listened to all that Audible offers and this is the first that, in my opinion, had virtually no substance. The character development was weak, with the exception of Aunt Flo who wasn't even the star of the show, oh yeah and Cheeks (the dog) and Kary (Chris' daughter). I thought their meager parts and descriptions were much more entertaining and grabbed my attention and heart more so than the two main characters.
As always Therese Plummer did a wonderful job and am happy to hear that she is still narrating Robyn Carr's audiobooks; she was the only saving grace in this otherwise drab story.
Not sure. The storyline was okay, albeit so predictable. Always love an alpha male but got really frustrated with Reagan.
Yes. Although probably not on my top 50 listen list.
Amy Landon did an okay job, she didn't keep me from listening as some female narrators will do, but Zach Villa was amazing, sexy, and his female voice was better than AL's male voice.
Storyline was really rushed and predictable; hope Ms. Shea does a better job with the next book.
Somewhat. Really did keep me interested enough to want to know what was going to happen next; however, way too many details/specifics/repetition which surely contributed to several hours of the length of the story. The length was a bit daunting.
Not sure. Most people I know wouldn't listen to a 25 hour book unless it was extremely astonishingly exceptional, which this was not.
ET did a pretty good job - Max's voice could have been better, but overall - a good job.
This book was definitely not erotica, maybe by a few years ago standards, but not today. It was not even a really good romance - hope KA's upcoming books are better and shorter.
I'm sorry to say that both Wanted and Heated did not live up to my expectations, especially after falling in love with Nikki Fairchild and Damien Stark. Don't get me wrong, I loved both Tyler and Evan's story and when all is said and done am looking forward to Cole's. I liked the steamy sex scenes and never before, I don't think, have I ever complained about there being too many. However, in this and Wanted there was a whole lot of sex and not enough storyline. I did like the character building of the men and in Wanted, Angelina's character, but Heated just didn't make the grade for me.
I also liked Saffron Martindale's narration in Wanted much better than Heather Smith (her male voice, at least that of Tyler was pretty good) but she spoke too slow and the "lilt" was off, in my opinion.
These two books seemed like they were rushed, something to get published and I so looked forward to them. I was disappointed. Although I also need to say that there have only been approximately 3 books that I have given 5's to, so 3's are not too, too awful.
Please use Saffron again or ask Heather to up her game in narration.
I really like LJ's books, this one, however, was not the best. I loved Indie and Colt and glad they finally got together but the storyline is really, really weak. Also, it ended so abruptly it almost startled me. The sex was hot, sorta, the arguments between the two tedious, and there could have been much more to the story.
I believe the best part, at least my favorite, was when Colt's dad found him at his fishing hole & talked to him and the brothers came to see him. This story did make me want to "hear" what happened with Cam, he's got to be next. Hope Audible sees fit to get the audio version.
I really like that each "alpha alien male" and each heroine have completely different personalities and characteristics.
I think Ms. Lopez has created an intriguing world with intriguing characters and hope she just keeps them coming and that Audible keeps providing them.
This series ranks pretty high up there with the books I've listened to. It has all the things that capture my attention and make me want to continue to listen; intrigue, suspense, drama, bad guys doing bad things and good, big, gorgeous alpha guys coming to the rescue, strong heroines, romance and hot steamy sex.
I like that the whole "alien" thing is different; that the world is imaginative/different and there are different spins put on good vs. evil.
Yep, but couldn't; had to sleep sometime.
I have now listened to all of the books offered. Hope Ms. Lopez keeps those big guys coming.
I thought the story was pretty good but very predictable so far.
Hurried, rushed, okay
I was hoping for a bit more from this book/author. The storyline was, thus far, very predictable. I am hoping that the final books are better and that if Em Eldridge narrates that she slows down a bit. The changes in voices for the varied characters were pretty good and she did the male voice better than most female narrators. That said, she sounded as if she was late for an appointment or afraid of loosing a bet for how quickly she could narrate this book. In the beginning her rushing/fast narrating made me anxious and I wanted to take a deep breath for her.
I hope the next books in this series are better, if Audible manages to offer them which is a 50/50 chance (Audible seems to neglect or ignore the fact that there are three books in a trilogy and several in a series) or just doesn't push the publishers to offer the last book in audio. I have become discouraged with Audible's lack of attention to this problem as there are several books that I have purchased that are part of a trilogy on the good faith that Audible will provide all of the books only to find that is not the case.
