THE WRITTER HAS DONE AN OUTSTANDING JOB BY TAKING THE 1ST BOOK WRITTEN AND LEADS YOU THRU EACH OF THE STORYS - A HUNGER LIKE NO OTHER IS YET ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE WRITER FLOWING YOU THROUGH THE INDIVIDUAL CHARATERS, THERE IS SUSPENSE, LAUGHTER, THRILLS, ROMANCE - BUT THE QUESTION IS - WHAT DID I LOVE BEST ABOUT THIS BOOK = "EVERY SINGLE WORD" - EVERY SINGLE "SECOND" OF THE BOOK, = VERY WELL WRITTEN, VERY WELL NARRATED - THE WRITTER & NARRATOR MAKES YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH EACH OF THE CHARATERS -
MY MEMORABLE MOMENT THROUGOUT ALL OF THESE BOOKS IS GOING THRU THE STORY WITH THE CHARATERS - THE FIRST TIME THEY SAW EACH OTHER, THE JOURNEY & ANTICIPATION THEY TAKE FALLING IN LOVE, AND OF COURSE THE HORROR OF THEM ALMOST LOOSING EACH ONLY TO MAKE IT THROUGH BECAUE THE LOVE THEY HAVE FOR EACH OTHER IS GREATER THAN ANYTHING IN THIS WORLD -
BUT FOR ME IT WAS THE PLANE WAS GOING DOWN - HOW BOWEN HELD HER PROTECTING HER AND TALKING TO HER AS THE PLANE WENT DOWN, WHILE WE GOT TO LISTEN TO HIS THOUGHTS OF HIS LOVE FOR HER - HOW HE WOULD DO "ANYTHING" TO KEEP HER SAFE EVEN SACRAFICING HIS OWN LIFE.
YES, THE AUTHOR IS BEYOND WORDS OUTSTANDING - BUT MR. PETKOFF'S PERFORMANCE 'REALLY' MAKES OR DEFINES THE STORY AND EACH OF THE CHARATERS - I DON'T KNOW IF I WOULD FEEL SO DEEPLY ABOUT EACH OF THE INDIVIDUALS IF IT WASN'T FOR MR. PETKOFF'S PERFORMANCE - JUST AN OUTSTANDING - EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE EACH & EVERY TIME!!!
YES - AFTER THE CRASH WHEN BOWN TOOK HER TO THE YARD TO LET THE VINES GROW OVER HER - I FOUND MYSELF CHEERING OUTLOUD
PLEASE DO NOT STOP WRITTING THESE BOOKS & PLEASE NEVER USE ANYONE BUT MR. PETKOFF TO TELL YOUR STORY -
"AND" I WANT TO SAY = THANK 'YOU' SO VERY MUCH - I ACTUALLY LOOK FORWARD & CAN'T WAIT TO DRIVE HOME & SIT IN TRAFFIC - MY LIFE IS BETTER HAVING READ YOUR STORIES!!!
Only do Audio Books - Sorry!!!!
Hummm, I guess I would "loosely" compare it to the BDB & Night Huntress Books - somewhere in there!!!
Good Narrator - He made the Characters individuals and made them Real!!!!! Thanks Ryan!!!
"Moved Me" No, not really....Just a Good Well Balanced Book
This was a Well Balanced Book - It had a Story Line that was Interesting to follow with all the other Good Vampire Stuff going on too - Again....Well Balanced Book - CANNOT WAIT FOR BOOK #2, #3, #4, #5, so I can get to Book #6 that's already out on Audio!!!!
A FUN BOOK
Not my "normal" Vampire Type Book so I have NO Comparisons - Sorry!!!!
No - 1st Time Listener to Ms. Ronconi's books
It had really good sarcasum and whit and I did catch myself laughing in parts
Because the book was pretty much "all" sarcasm & whit when it came to the love scenes it was hard to relate - Overall the book was a very good listening too!!!!
Really cannot rate the "Book" because I could not bare 1 more second listening to Lauren Sweet - If I were the Author I would SUE for loosing listeners - she made me want to rip my ears out of my head!!! It's too bad as I was "hoping" to start a New Series - instead I threw away good money that I could have used on "ANY OTHER" book / Narrator!!!
I have to believe that Quinn did "NOT" actually Approved this Narrator - With so many very good narrators around I am TOTALLY LOST on "WHY" anyone would want Sweet to Narrate their book???????
Let me help Quinn out with a "TRUE NARRATOR"= There is.....R. Petkoff, C. Holloway, J. Fangione, H. Huber, S. Eastlake, T. Gilbert, etc...etc...etc..."ANYONE" BUT SWEET!!!!!
Don't know, because I absolutely could NOT get thru the 1st CD and have "no memory" of the Story ONLY how VERY BAD the Narrator was!!!!
I am truly sorry I will not be able to purchase "any" of the First Series, as I understand the actual "STORY" is a good one - WHAT A SHAME to have a "Series" go to waste!!!!!!!
Never Ever have the time to "sit & read" - only way to read a book is to Listen to a Book - sooooo I cannot answer this question!!!
When Merit & Ethan were at the Farmhouse in bed talking about how they get themselves to fall asleep when things are stressful - It was a very Tender & very Nice moment in the book!!!!
To me the narrator is "more" important than the Book it self!!!!
So do not take lightly my review of Sophie, which is: I was soooo scared to purchase the "New" Narrator book and was HAPPY = Sophie is a Good Narrator - YES...her "Man" voice could be better BUT overall Sophie is "almost" as good as Holloway!!!
"TRY" listening to the narrator of: Forbidden Days = Lauren Sweet - OMG it should be a Crime to allow her to narrate & if I was the Author I would SUE = 1st Time I have ever said this....I want my money back!!!!! -
Soooooo compared to Lauren Sweet, Sophie is WONDERFUL, at least I'll keep buying Chicagoland books, whereas I will NOT spend 1 more dime on The Firsts Series!!!!
Really don't know.....Dark One????
Everyone just needs to calm down about the Narrator - she'll come into her own- AND be "VERY GRATEFUL" that it's not Lauren Sweet doing the narrating!!!!!
HUNGRY - FOR - MORE!!!!!
Having read the book reviews, the majority thought the book was "out-of-character" with the previous books - and I "some-what" agree, BUT... only with the fact there were a lot of different story's going on at the same time - even so, the story's were well written, well told, and all interesting!!!
I don't think the Author could tell a bad story regardless to how many story's are being told at once - in fact I would say the Author is BEYOND BRILLIANT to be able to do so!!!!
So the answer to this question is:
How the Author was able to write such a Quality Book while telling several different story's at one time and not neglecting one character over another, all while keeping the reader interested and HUNGERY FOR MORE!!!!!
Gotta tell you - Frangione does a GREAT Butch!!!
Yep (I'm embarrassed to say) - it was at the Horse Race - not to ruin the book for anyone who hasn't yet read it - a tear or 2 was shed when the horse went down - I've been there / done that - which is why I'm sensitive to the situation.
I "APPRECIATE" Ms. Cole & Mr. Frangione for their hard work & dedication to the series and "pray" they "both" keep up the GREAT work as "ALL" of the books, so far, in this series have brought me such excitement & joy - THANK YOU Ms. Cole & Mr. Frangione!!!!
Insightful, Edgey, Not-Believable (Jane end part)
All the books give you "GREAT" Insight on the "Main" Charater - this is always interesting info!!!
He's good - Wish he could get a bit more "into" Charater
Kinky Strong Man finds Match Lover
Just that I was sort of disappointed about the "Jane" ending - I mean "really"???? Coming back as a ghost that people can walk thru = so "not" believable nor the Writer Forte'
Yep I would listen to it again - because I absolutly loved the story line - the way it was read - everything about the audio book!!!
The memorable moment was from start to finish!!!
Robert Petkoff is FANTASTIC - he brings the story to alive - the men & women - he does an excellent job
There were moments throughout the book, not just because of the Storyline, but because of Mr. Petkoff too!!!
I am not an easy person to please - This book did it for me - I have started the Series!!!
