This is an audio book that I think I could listen to repeatedly. The narrators voice was smooth, silky, and definitely brought the characters to life.
I love the heat of this story. I adore the relationships between different characters, the developing emotions and how well they are expressed through both the written and the narrated version of this story.
Ryan West did an amazing job with the narration of this story. He captured each character with different tones, accent and demeanor. He made me remember why I am so in love with this book and the characters in it. He brought this story to life in a way I did not think was possible.
Once you go wolf, you never go back!
I was gifted this Audible Copy in exchange for an honest review.
Jule is a girl with destroyed self esteem who wants nothing more than what every other person craves...love. She has opted to try a dating service to have her needs met since she has been unable to hold the attention of any person.
This story is a set in a mix of earth and a space ship where multiple alien creatures live. Jule is transported to the space station for her "date" and is introduced to a whole new world. Her eyes are opened to a future she did not see possible.
While a novella, this is a complete story. The characters each have their own quirks and the reader is not left feeling confused. It is GLTB, which is not a problem for me as a reader, but the whole thing was bland for me in the fact that Jule spends most of the book having a pity party. I just struggle with weak women.
The narrator did well with separating out characters but at times used the voices of the character when she should have been using a steady flow voice for background story.
Oh my goodness. If I was not already in love with Suzanne Wright's writing, this one would have snared me. This book was hot, suspenseful and an amazing read. There was a good amount of witty sarcasm which is always a plus. I love the dominance of these wolves and how they all are such fierce protectors of each other and their hearts.
I used the whispersync version of this novel and the narrator added a great amount of draw to this story. She was able to make sure that each character had a clear personality through her voice. Awesome!
I am still panting hours after listening to this novel. I have found a third narrator that I am in love with. The tone of his voice and how he relays the story is phenomenal. The story that he is telling is written so well that I could not put it down. From suspenseful twists to heated romance, this book has it all! this is money well spent!
Rise of the Lost Prince has potential to be a great story. I have two major issues with this novel. One is that it is written so simplistic that I had a hard time staying interested in the story. I also struggled with connecting to the characters as a result. The second issue I had was that I am just not crazy about this narrator. His slight lisp is distracting, his tones are not that varied from character to character with the exception of his growls. I am sad to only give this three fangs.
I loved the fantasy of this book. Although it was a novella, you get a mostly complete story with great detail. We have Earth dying and a princess from a foreign land who is said will save Earth upon her arrival. From the details of the other land to the fated marriage this is a great read. I liked the bits of angst built in of forbidden love while they lasted.
As far as the narration, I am not crazy about him. I think that I would have much rather read than audio'd this one!
Roxy is in a hot little band but one of her bandmates is also her ex. Jordan has made her miserable more in their relationship than he has made her happy. She has known him her whole life, but there is something changed in him, turning him into a complete douche.
As she walks into the club for her set, she is completely entranced by Trevor. His accent rolls off of her and she cannot get enough. Trevor sets his sights on her as well and they are both forever changed.
I read this book in kindle before the audio and I will say I loved it more this time. I was able to pick up on so much that I missed before. The magnet that pulls Others together is always hidden below the surface.
John Lane was magnificent in this rendition. His accent gave me heated chills and I found myself rewinding the audio just to hear his gravelly tone of Joey. His Irish lilt is so sexy it hurts. I have decided that I need to be his regular stalker and have him make a tape of sexy phrases that he can only say in Irish Accent so that I can have it as my go to when I am having a bad day.
Brandy writes so well, linking past books to the present. Not only that but she ties Edenton to Seattle in a way that is not forced but rather seamless. Amazing!
This is an interesting idea for a book. Three stories of naughtiness make up this novella. All three "tales" are of the kinky nature involving domination and submission.
Gwin and Tristan are super hot together and really deserve a full length novella.
The neighbors were somewhat bland to me, yes BDSM was involved but I found the narration of them both annoying.
As far as the computer programmer seeking a hot interlude. This was also just Okay for me. I found the story lacking passion and angst which left it just blah.
I am fairlly sure if most of my "issues" with this novel were based on the narrator. I found that during most of his female parts of narration he sounded like a whiny petulant brat. It was not really sexy, more grating on the nerves.

Devotion continues us on the path of Alexis and Tristan. Alexis has started to practice her newly developed skills since the Ang'Dora and trying to come to terms with the stuff Tristan was put through during his disappearance. There is a traitor among them and it has been challenging to figure out just who is behind the treachery. The council is supposed to support the women but has left them reliant on each other.
This book is full of twists and turns leaving you at the end with a cliff-hanger that you are not expecting.
For the most part, I really enjoy this narrator. The one issue I have is that Alexis is now and adult and still at times sounds like a petulant brat.
Will is a rough and tough quarterback who is not ready to rid himself off all the crap holding him back. He is living his life for everyone else and denying his most basal needs. Although he has great friends and a rich family, he has to hide what really makes him tick, his art and his love for being a bottom.
Noah is a struggling artist that has had a hard knock life all the way around, but a survivor. He does not let anyone or anything steer his choices in his life and certainly doesn't hide behind societal walls.
The two are thrown together by a masters level art class where they are both vying for the same prestigious scholarship.
Life is not going to be the same for either one, but is Noah going to give Will the push he needs to come out of the closet?
What I liked about this story was that Noah is such a strong gay man. He knows what he wants, he has goals and he does not let anyone push him around. I liked that Will had such strong friends that were willing to pick him up and even lie for him if it meant he could keep up a persona that he really did not see any value in.
I thought the romance felt bland and even at times forced. I did not like some of the inuendos the author used to describe the sex scenes in this one, frequently laughing out loud thinking, is this the stuff they really say? Spunk and sweat? The author also used one word way too many times in this book.
As for the narration, the narrator had a slight lisp which made his reading of this book distracting at times. I was not crazy about his narration for these characters finding him not to be as convincing as other narrators have been. This one was just okay for me. 3 fangs from Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock.
I enjoyed both versions. You tend to get different things out of each. when you are reading a book in paperback/ebook you get images and sounds in your head of the characters. Audio books tend to not line up with what you have created, but make it fun.
I love the dynamic between jess and slater. I love that they push each other to be equals and are so devoted to what they feel.
She changes voices for each character which is a plus, but she has a habit of getting high pitched for multiple characters which can get a little overwhelming.
