    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A different author.


    Would you ever listen to anything by J. R. Ward again?

    I would rather do laps in sulfuric acid than subject myself to this author again.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Well, the monotone certainly didn't help anything.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dark Lover?

    It was a great concept that was appallingly written. The story was not nearly fleshed out enough for the length of the novel, the characters are more like caricatures than real people, and the dialogue is absurd.


    Any additional comments?

    STEER CLEAR. I love this genre, and was looking forward to the book due to the plethora of good reviews, but now I think I was punked. It is not possible that SO many people actually liked this train wreck.
