The Alan Lewrie series is extremely interesting & addictive. His peronal life might be a diaster but his Professional Life is where he Shines!
I am a woman & some people might assume female readers would take exception to the character's behavior. I don't fault the character for his supposed "Inappropriate" behavior--I try to look at the big picture from realistic stand point and from that I can appreciate the cirumstances. Like I said before--his Professional Exploits are what makes the book!
To me the important thing is getting the job done and when it comes time to kick arse and take names--that is exactly what our hero does and he does with such a flare that you want him to do it againa and again!!
My only Complaint is that several books are NOT available on Audible. It is my Strongest Hope that the remaining books will be made available SOON. And it goes without saying that the books Must continue to be narrated by John Lee--nobody else could do justice to Captain Alan Lewrie.
Another Author takes and ruins a character's previous persona. We are supposed to believe that Rathbone who has ALWAYS been Fiercely Loyal to both Monk and Hester NOT only attacks them but goes out of his way to humiliate them just so he can impress his father-in-law (a man he has NO need to impress) to represent an ANIMAL like Jericho Phillips. It makes you despise a character that has always been portrayed as an Honorable person.
Then there is Rathbone's wife Margaret--she has been loyal to Hester and quite frankly owes her own personal happiness to Hester. Now she is portrayed as self righteous B*ITCH!
The court scene where Rathbone rips Hester & Monk apart is ABSOLUTELY REPREHENSIBLE!!!!
What is WRONG with authors and their need to treat listeners like we are stupid. I have listened to all these books but this book is INSULTING!!!!!
And YES the Narrator SUCKS but that is old news.
Please bring back Davina Porter (the BEST female narrator ever) and the only reason I ever discovered this author.
If the author had Actually stuck to the story line and the characters she has created.Oliver is a great guy they have known for 3 YEARS but after a measly 2 months as a Vampire nobody believes a thing he says! Maya should have been on her knees groveling for Oliver's forgiveness!!! I rooted for Zane all along but now he who has always drank from Humans can't even treat Oliver with respect. Sort of the pot calling the kettle black!
No, but unfortunately it is a necessary "read" to continue the series. Just like JR Ward's book #6 Lover Enshrined of the Black Dagger Brotherhood series--I hated the way the author portrayed Phury but again it was a necessary read so you know what is going on. At least that book had some redeeming qualities unlike this one.Why do authors feel the need to ruin some of their best characters????
I like Ursula & Oliver and their relationship is good thing but I don't have a favorite scene
Ursula & Oliver's relationship.The ONLY other redeeming quality is the narrator!
Maya's so called "Apology" to Oliver is a JOKE!!! She should be horsewhipped at least. I now find her character totally Repugnant! Blake is a F***tard of monumental proportions! How can he be related to Quinn??? Zane and Maya's attitudes made my BLOOD BOIL!What was the author THINKING????
I read the book and have been looking forward to the Audio version and wasn't disappointed
Book #2 Sweet Persuasion because Cole, Lucas & Damon are my favorite characters and these were my favorite books of the series.
Yes, she is the same as her previous performances. She is an okay narrator, not great but not bad. At least they use the same narrator consistently.
SPOILER: When Lucas gives Ren to Cole
I bought the book before the cover was changed. The Original Cover was Very Explicit and you are lead to believe that this erotic book with a story line. Sounds great Right? Unfortunately, the book is whiny Melodrama with a few sex scenes thrown in.
The book is long drawn out drama about an anniversary party for Anne's parents. NOTHING happens, in this book, but we do learn all about Anne's marriage, her alcoholic father, her dysfunctional family and her inability to deal with her mother-in-law.
I kept reading hoping it would get better, and sometimes it did but then it would go back to dysfunctional alcoholic crap and ruin it.
I enjoy erotic novels to escape reality!! Not to listen about other people's problems.
I read this book several years ago and was thrilled to find it in Audible format. My only complaint is the Narrator. Kevin Pariseau provides a monotone narration and ALL the voices sound the same--even the male & female voices sound the same. It's a long book which in my opinion is a good thing but you need a talented narrator to keep your interest. With this narrator I often find my wandering.
This is a great story and deserves to be read by a great narrator (such as John Lee or Simon Vance) that could do it justice.
The story is enjoyable if you are looking for an easy listen. It is very predictable and doesn't fill out the characters but then again it is a very short story.
I only found this book because I was looking for something narrated by Davina Porter. I love this genre but prefer much longer books that take the time to deveolp the story & and characters. I decided to listen to because of narrators merits--and wasn't disappointed by her performance.
I must take exception to the review criticizing Porter's narration, Reviewer: Bronwyn appears to be in the Minority--not one person finds the opinion helpful. Porter is by far and away one of the MOST Talented Narrators!!!!
I agree with the review written by Lucinda the book is "Boring". I also LOVE long audiobooks but there was just so much filler that it was very distracting from what was happening. Every time it would start to get interesting, the author would go off on tangent analyzing every thought and emotion. I would lose my train of thought and have to rewind it to get back to the meat of the conversation. I forced myself to finish the book hoping that SOMETHING would happen but it never did.
Simon Vance did his usual SUPERB job narrating this book--he was the only saving grace!
