I have to be honest and say that all the bad reviews I read before purchasing the books turned me off. So I decided to be safe and get the first installment from the public library. Of course I was on a waiting list, #255. A friend gave me the Trilogy as a gift. I was totally hooked after reading the first book, Fifty Shades of Gray. From what I have read about the author, Fifty Shades was her freshman effort. Not too often that authors’ have a home run so to speak right out of the box. Fifty Shades was pretty damn good in my opinion. Fifty Shades Darker is no exception.
Christian is a likable character but man he is really “f..... up” in the head and deeply damaged. To say he is flawed would be too weak of a description. By definition a flaw is ….a physical disfigurement that prevents something from being totally perfect and detracts from its value. On the outside Christian is beautiful, financially successful, and generous. He does not see his own self-worth. That is really what kept me listening and pulled me in deeper. I just had to see if this guy was going to be ok and if Anna would make a difference in his life. For a lack of a better description, Christian is a walk on the dark side of sexuality.
What I did not expect was to be moved to tears because of the horrible things that happened to Christian in his young life. I did not expect to find myself laughing at Anna’s inner Goddess and her self-conscience which were like two minor characters with their own personalities.
The narration of the 1st and 2nd books was really adequate to me; I could not find any fault with it. In fact the narrator did a pretty good job in conveying some serious and disturbing emotions from Christian and making the reader feel how young and inexperienced Anna really is, the young sounding voice just added to this fact for me.
Christian’s big reveal knocked me for a loop. So Keep Calm and Stow Your Twitchy Palm! It’s ok the Trilogy is worth purchasing. I do recommend getting this trilogy, because I have already downloaded the 3rd installment. I now know what the hype is all about and it’s not hype, it’s pretty shocking and pretty darn good. If you liked Tempted and Naked, and the character Alex by Megan Hart this Trilogy will move you too.
This is the story two troubled souls, Colt and Cheyenne that somehow are the healing become what the other needs to heal. True love blooms. This story has the right mix of angst and suspense to keep you on the edge wondering what will happen. I love a good story with some hot and steamy romance; this has the just right mix of it. This my first book by this author and I can’t wait to download book #2 in the series. Marcy Sterling is a very believable narrator & made the book even better.
This is a beautiful story even though we know that for Kiro and Emily their HEA did not last forever, but that is what gives this story credibility, it’s so realistic. Life is not always perfect but it does often have some very beautiful elements. Kiro had a very hard start on life and this insight lets you know why he is the way he is, not perfect just a man with flaws, but with some very redeeming qualities. He loved Emily with all of his heart and that is what Emily wanted really, to be loved and treasured. Even after her accident and she was no longer perfect, in Kiro’s eyes she was still perfect and he continued to love her. This brought tears to my eyes. This may be a novella but it carries a big impact. If you are a fan or just starting to read these books, you have got to get this novella, I was not disappointed. The narration of the story was great as always and the Abbi Glines is a talented author. This was well worth the money.
OMG, this was the best ending ever. Kim Harrison you know how to end a series. This book really tied up all the questions I had. I have been wanting to see Rachel and Ivy find their HEA for a long time. I really hate this is coming to an end because I have enjoyed all 13 installments. This one is a winner with me. I was really a little choked up at the end. I am going to star reading all 13 again starting with #1 in the series. This has been a roller coaster ride and it was fun!!!! I have to do it again!
This was steamy hot and so good! Makes me want to find myself a bad boy! I have just fallen in love with the folks in Rosemary Beach. I am telling you...you will not be able to stop with just one book from this author she is totally awesome! I just can't get enough. The minute a new book comes out I get it...usually have it on pre-order!!! I started this one about 1:00am just to hear a bit. Almost did not get any sleep. Finally I had to get a few minutes of rest, and started again with a cup of coffee and making breakfast. I don't what was hotter or sweeter my coffee of Rush! You will just have to get this one and find out. This was worth my money!
I have not written a review in a long time. I could not wait to write this one. Rachel and Trent are finally together and this book has set the stage for an epic ending to the series. Every thing has come full circle. Too sad this is only going to be 13 books in this series and this is #12. This is a great listen and I am about to start round two. I listen to this book in 2 days it is that good. I totally loved the introduction of the new elements. I can't say I can pick a favorite book in the serious because I have been hooked from the start. Not only to is listen to the audio but read the books as well. The audio adds a wonderful element. The narration is on point and this makes it hard to but this book down. There are a few authors that I just have to take a vacation day to enjoy the books and Kim Harrison is one of the authors for me. This book did not disappoint!!!!! What else can I say, this is so good and Trent is so sexy! Wow!
I want more of this story. Gigi is a very funny character and I found my self really wanting to hear more when this story ended. Most of all I want to know who the cute vampire was that surprise kissed Gigi. OK, I am going to have to purchase book 2 because Half Moon Hollows book 2.5 was terrific. Thanks for the Christmas gift.
I absolutely love a story where the heroine is strong, independent and realistic. Faith has all of those qualities (Girl Power) and flawless. In fact I just wanted to shake her at time. Faith is no wimpy girl. She can kick some serious butt. Now add into that that this story has romantic elements and a sexy male lead (well there are several very sexy male characters) and bad guys that you just love to hate. There are two very sexy guys who want Faith and she has a choice to make. This alone would make a great story line, but these folks are shape-shifter: werecats. If you like authors like Karen Marie Moning (Fever Series), Kim Harrison (The Hollows Series) Christine Feehan, well let’s just say you are going to love Rachel Vincent and this series. I actually purchased this a while back and listen to it while waiting on the releases from some of my favorite authors. Now Rachel Vincent is one of favorite authors. This book gets 5 stars from me and I have several of my friends reading this series now! Did I mention that I have actually listened to this at least two or three times, it’s that good!
Bella Andre, has done it again. This one is a hit with me. This story starts out smoking hot and I don't mean the heat from the fires. This story also develops into somewhat of a surprise for me. I expected a great romance, but what I did not expect was suspense or a crazy killer on the loose. I could not put this one down.
Maya Jackson is the female lead who is immediately attracted to the hot sexy Logan Cain. These two have a brief encounter and six months later, they meet again and sparks really start to fly. It was really fun seeing the physical attraction between Maya and Logan turn into to something deeper. I am about the listen to this one again, it’s that good!
I have become a fan of Robin Carr. If you liked the Virgin River series you will like the world of Thunder Point too. Carr has a way of mixing romance and a great story and I have come to expect this from her novels. This one is no exception, the wright amount of character development and hot steamy romance to make me wish the next installment was already available for download. Therese Plummer shines as the narrator and made this audio come to life. She is really great with the male and female voices. Sometimes a narrator can kill a good story, Plummer just adds to this one. In my opinion Carr and Plummer are a great match. I promise you will love hearing about Sarah and Cooper who are the main characters. Then there are several side supporting characters with equally blooming romances. I just can't say enough I loved this one.
OMG, I can't believe this book was so good. I was on On The Edge of My Seat. Panting and totally captivated. This is definitely a 5 Star Listen! I have been waiting a long time for Rachel and Trent to come together. Rachel is powerful and together Rachel, Trent, and yes Al; well let’s say there is no stopping them. Finally a lot of the questions were answered about the origins of the Elf’s and the demons. The only negative thing I can say is that the next book is not ready for download. I can’t wait, I want more. Kim Harrison’s Ever After is outstanding. The Narration, by Marguerite Gavin brings this story to life. No one could have done it better.
