It was a hot, lesbian erotic novel that didn't just end when they got together. It couldn't actually end when they got together because the Thirteen Hours in the title was at the beginning of the book and really explains how they started their relationship.
The sex scenes were very good. Explicit, so if you don't like that in your books, this is not for you. Very well written as well. I also liked how real the relationship was between the two women. Not everything was roses and chocolate. O'Brien actually filled in how they continued to get close and how they each overcame the natural blips in the road that every relationship has in the beginning.
Aimes did do a great job at keeping the two women distinct. I don't believe I was ever confused as to who was speaking and who did what.
The only extreme reaction I had was getting turned on by scenes O'Brien wrote. There were places where she made me laugh, too.
There aren't a lot of lesbian romances out there, which makes me turn to heterosexual romances instead. For any lesbians out there looking for a great story, look no further. I did immediately look to see if O'Brien had other books available on Audible and was very disappointed that she didn't.
Pretty darn close to the top.
Hmmmm. Because the book is so funny I would have to compare to other authors that write funny paranormal romances... Molly Harper, Michele Bardsley, Dakota Cassidy. The one difference being that I liked this series so well that I zipped through everything she had available instead of stopping in the middle like I did with the other authors.
I did just read the last book in this series since the Audible version hadn't come out yet and I totally missed Kane's accents and the emotion she puts into her performance. Sarcasm and mockery are emotions, aren't they? Kane had an extremely good interpretation of the those points in Laurenston's narrative.
OMG yes! I'm lucky that I drive for a living anywhere from 8 to 12 hours a day. I think I went through this whole series in two weeks. And most of that was because I was holding off buying the more expensive versions... Whispersync is your friend but there were two books in this series that weren't Whispersync compatible so I used credits for those two.
This whole series was amazing and hilarious. Made me run through every book as fast as I could get them. I think this book was the funniest of them all, making me laugh out loud more times than I can count. Totally recommend these books.
I usually don't like first person narratives. There are some books where the plot or the writing style can overcome my dislike. In fact, there are some that I would now include among my favorite books. This was definitely not one of them. The plot itself was kind of bland, with the crisis feeling contrived. Also, some of the things the female lead says I found incredibly unbelievable. I don't know that I've heard anyone in contemporary times continually refer to their partner as "my love" and it makes the relationship between the two feel a bit forced. The other thing I didn't like was that the story was written in present tense. The only other things that I have read in present tense are those short story erotica stories that use it as a way of trying to involve you in the fantasy. I found it annoying in this story. The biggest plot point I had problems with is how the heroine pours out all the secrets of her life to this man that she met 24-48 hours ago, but doesn't notice that he isn't telling her anything about himself in return. There's some mention of how she's giving him the benefit of the doubt when she notices him changing the subject when she asks him basic questions about himself. But I'm sorry, if the person I'm telling my secrets to closes himself off from me in return, that would be a big red flag for me.
Perhaps. I didn't actually find her voice or her performance annoying, I just don't think there was much to work with in this story.
My biggest problem with this book was the style of writing. I couldn't get into the story because of it, and when I heard the preview to the next book, it was written in the same style. I think I got this book during the sale of first books in a series, and usually if I find things I like enough I will try the second book. The characters in the second book actually made me consider giving it a try (they are secondary characters in this first book). But the preview did let me know that Proby's writing style wasn't just a one off, that it is actually her writing style throughout the series. (At least the first two books of it). I have enough dislike of the writing style to stop listening to the series.
