I'm not sure exactly what I didn't like about the story. Normally this is right up my alley. The love scenes were hot but the story just didn't pull me in. I could have put the book down at any point and not finished it.
I think it lost me when there was a frustrated, grumpy Mother Nature who had a council with the other gods that watched over the paranormals with human spy's. The fact that Mother Nature looks down her nose on everyone just seemed it was trying too hard to create drama. The fact that all this is because she won't have sex because she doesn't know what she will give birth too was just a little unbelievable.
I didn't have an issue with narrator. I'm not honestly sure if it was the story or what about this one. It really looked like it should have been a good story. I'm not sure why it just didn't do it for me.
Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
It did have a happy ending. That was the best part of the book. I wish I had liked the book but I don't think I'll pick up anymore in the series. Sorry.
Yes. The book is very well written and has a bit of everything in it. You have a lot going on in this book across the many characters. This is one of those books I didn't want to end and when it did I'm on pins and needles waiting for the next one.
I couldn't wait for this book to come out and now I'm in the same boat with the next one. If you haven't read Karen Marie Moning I highly suggest them. I'd start with the Highlander series and then the fever series, since the Highlanders make cameo appearances throughout the fever books.
That's a tough choice. I love all of the characters but it was good to see Mac and Barrons back in this one. I don't like Jade and hope Dani is back in the next one. I do love the way Dani is aged up in this one. Once she is back in character she can compete in the romance department.
I couldn't put it down. There is so much happening in the story it's really hard to find a place to stop.
These books are packed with so much story from beginning to end. There is never a dull moment and I always want more story. I can fall into these stories and see them unfold. Each character is perfect and you can see the story unfold around them.
KMM does an amazing job of keeping the storyline straight with so many main characters. Amazing job!. Going to listen to the entire Fever series again right now. I wish I had the Highlanders on audio. Guess those will by my next buy.
If you are looking for a hard core, raw, raunchy book about down and dirty sex then look no further. The sex scenes in this book are hot and explicit and there are about 9 solid hours of them.
Actually this book should be in the erotic heading not romance/suspense. There wasn't any "romance" and the only suspense was waiting for actual penetration. She had plenty of orgasms but you have to wait until over half way through the book before there is actual penetration.
probably paranormal romance which this is definitely not
I don't know. The characters didn't grow or build, which is a shame because the story had potential.
Don't get me wrong...I love a good sex scene as much as the next but I like for it to have a little substance as well. I did sit through the whole book, waiting, hoping something would happen.
The male voice was only the last 20 min or so and I fast forwarded through almost all of that. I had already heard enough of the sex scenes and just didn't want to hear anymore. The female narrator did an excellent job though. She had a very pleasant voice and read very well.
That's about all I can say. I picked it up on the 4.95 sale so at least I didn't spend a credit on it. It's not one I'll ever listen to again. I didn't hate the book but it bored me to tears. I had close to an hour at the beginning to get to know the characters then pure sex for 9 hours then about an hour or two of story and it ended with sex.
You can't help but love the quirky little old lady that plays cupid for everyone. I loved Tante Lulu in all the previous Cajun romance series and would buy those on audiobook if they came out.*hint, hint*
This is starting another set so you don't have to read the ones before. Tante Lulu is a card and you never know what she's going to say. This is basically two young lovers forced apart finding their way over all the obstacles in their way back to each other. With a big push from Tanta Lulu.
J.F. Harding did an decent job. He does have different voices and tried hard with the Cajun accent. I would have preferred a better Cajun accent but I still loved the book anyway. Can't wait to see who Tante Lulu sets her sights on next.
it was a good read. This is a mufti person series so it took me just a bit to get into it. Just when I was thinking the plot was predictable it kept twisting and kept me guessing. I had no idea it was a series until I got to the end, and it didn't quite end.
Yes and I picked the second book up immediately. The story was going in so many directions at once but each one was well written out. I wasn't sure who the main focus was until the end. But then it didn't end actually. I can't really say why without going into details. It was worth the read to me.
Regan Pascoli. I can relate to her. A single mother trying to do the best she can for her kids only to have the ex be the shinning knight while she's the bad guy.
All of the characters were well written and I could see a lot of potential plots behind each one of them. The narrator didn't have the multiple voices but he did a very good job. I always knew who was talking. Except which creep was narrating in the background
No extreme reaction. There was suspense but not an emotional roller coaster
I haven't read the print version but I would probably have liked it better.
She has a very pleasant voice and a slight Scottish accent. Unfortunately there aren't individual characters. She as the same accent no matter who is speaking....male/female, American/Scott. There were a few times that I lost who was speaking.
But it's not bad enough not to listen to. I do plan to pick up the others as well. It wasn't bad I just find it easier to listen to if character voices are established then I don't loose my place.
I did love the story. Here you had a Scottish hunk who was essentially a book nerd/professor type person who had to get married or loose his place as laird. The story developed rather nicely. I'll pick up the next one.
The beginning of it was just too far out there. I couldn't continue. I only made it through chapter 1 and went to another book. It starts with a doctor in front of some council of druids or fae born I'm not even clear on that part. But basically chick reported this Druid or they kept calling him a pooka whatever that is. She wanted him in trouble because he slept with her and then left and didn't tell her goodbye or call her.
She has such hostility towards him you would think he murdered her best friend. She keeps refusing and the council tells her she has to. His brother volunteers to watch him but she goes off on that because apparently the pooka druid did something to his brother.
Like I said, it was just too much. Way to unbelievable. It didn't peak my interest and I don't think I could have listened to her for very long. Had the story peaked my interest I would probably have listened longer but there wasn't anything there I wanted to hear.
narrator was terrible. It sounded like she was in an empty room and too close to the microphone. She had some inflection but all characters were pretty much the same. It was very hard to listen to it.
best part was I only paid 3.95 so not out too much.
The narrator did an excellent job on this one. She had all the emotions in her voice when needed and this story ran the gambit. The narrator would have made this book worth the read even if the story wasn't as good but it was.
It took me a little bit to get into the book because it's essentially two stories told simultaneously. This book has it all. It's a tragic love story, evil villains, vampires, romance and a happy ending. I can't wait for the next book. I will definitely pick it up.
I laughed, I cried, I rolled my eyes. By the time I was half way through the book I couldn't put it down. Great story.
It wasn't the story at all. This book is only one or two lines devoted to every character from the entire series that didn't have an ending in the final book. It is needed to complete the series but for $6 just the paperback book would have been better.
There weren't any scenes.
I think it would be better read than listened to as a book. I had to listen to it a couple of times because I missed some of the folks. It was only one or two sentences per character and sometimes I couldn't place the character before we were on the next one.
It is needed for the series completion but since it is so short and the structure of the book I think it would be better to read it. However, the kindle version costs more than the audible book here.
It was worth it just for Dianthaa, Bubba, & Eric's stories. I didn't care for Pam's, it was hard to follow and it felt wrong.
Bubba's story was about when he was captured and put on the cross by the Mississippi vampires. Dianthaa's book you got a glimpse of a future Sookie and Sam. Eric's alone I would have bought the book for. It was 201 years after he left.
For the most part, the various authors did a great job taking the existing characters and giving a small story from their perspective. It's a good addition to the Stackhouse series.
If Shades of Grey was too much for you then stay away from these. They are a shortened version without the drama. Same type of melt the ink of the pages sex scenes.
It's a good story as well. You have a co-ed looking for her birth father only to find he's the head of the Russian mob. The love interest is her fathers right hand man who was a teen on the streets when found and taken in by her father.
I love Kresley Cole's series Immortals After Dark....this is nothing like that series. I did like the book although it's short and the next book i a continuation of the story.
Yes I went ahead and bought the other two to see what happens.
