Action packed passion. Nah, that doesn't come even close. Sorry three words are just not enough, no way!
I can't compare it to any other book because it's unique. I've not read another with the same story line and so far, you think it's going to go one way and then "nope" not going there... it takes you somewhere else completely different.
This is my first Luke Daniels narration and I loved him. I thought he really completed the story. I really loved Trish's first one of this series, "Forged in Fire" and although the female narrator was very good, I feel it would have been even better had it been read by Luke Daniels.
I enjoyed book one so much that I thought I might be expecting too much of this second one. I'm very happy to say that I found it was even better and know that book three is going to be just as juicy. Trish continues where she left off in book one which means it's best to read/listen to them in order.
In this one we get more insight as to the waves created by the bad guy's actions, meaning that all actions carry consequences, some good, and in this case very bad. By waves I'm talking about Gillian (no spoilers, don't worry).
At times, depending on the interaction between characters I think I have a premonition into the next book, but NO I DON'T, I don't have a clue cause Trish just goes along and mixes things up for me, which is fine, cause I'm liking where she leads even better.
As you can see I'm not one for "spoilers" so if you want to know what the heck I'm talking about you'll have to listen to this book.
Once again I am in awe of Trish's talent for delivering a "heated" romance filled with action at every corner and at so many different levels, literally! It's the kind of action a guy would like or an ex-tomboy like me would, but I don't think it's overdone in the sense that other women would find it boring and too much. The action is so well written, it just adds to the climax. She really is good at it and I really do think she has done a wonderful job.
I hope book three doesn't take so long to come out in Audible as I'll be forced to read it on Kindle or paper, which I don't have a problem with but this way I get to also listen to Luke Daniels act out the scenes for me and make it even more amazing.
Great work both Trish and Luke. Thank you!!!
Yes I would definitely listen to this again, because it completely drew me in. I found this second book to be even better than the first. As I predicted in my review of the first, this second book offered a more complete insight to the world of the Golden Vampires. Explanations about their laws, abilities and way of life became clearer and fell into place. The story was riveting in that the love and the action flowed through from beginning to end parallel to eachother.
I like that Sharon incorporates humour aswell heartache and of course passion. It's a complex story and in both book 1 and 2 Sharon has given a lot of information and I like that she slowly takes the reader through the unfolding of it, carefully placing everything on the timeline and allowing us to absorb it at the appropriate moment.
Although I am JD's number one fan, he surprised me in this book, especially in his portrayal of Carabella's moment of selfless sacrifice, as well as Paolo's pain when he witnessed it. He actually made me pause to listen intently because the moment was so incredibly heart-breaking. I love the way he did Dag too, he actually made me want to rip Dag's head off myself (sorry if I've mispelt names, I don't have the print copy of this one).
I always enjoy JD's performances and love that he can surprise me everytime adding something new and fresh. He poetically dramatises all the scenes and places you on the stage actually living each and every experience.
The are quite a few moments that moved me in this book. I don't like spoilers so if you don't read/listen you won't know what I'm talking about. Those moments were Johnny when he's supposed to meet Carabella to discuss a "book"; Carabella's selfless act when she tries to protect Paolo from Dag and last but not least, the Jet Brothers all three of them on different occasions.
Actually there are so many moments that I can't name them all otherwise I'd be writing down the whole book.
I really did enjoy the first book but I enjoyed this one so much more and I have a feeling it's just getting better because Sharon has left my mouth watering for book 3.
Things have happened and, I have hunches about others that are going to happen and, I need to know what happened to someone in particular - CONFUSED?, well you know what to do. I'm not a spoiler, sorry :-)
This book is totally worth getting whether you're a Sharon Hamilton fan or not, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
I absolutely loved all of it! I'm not going to give away any spoilers but I will say that this Seal Team is not your average team, one of the members, Zane to be exact has a certain ability which brings a very different twist to an action packed, romantic as heck story. It's action all the way which kept me riveted and Zane is lovely and makes a perfect match for Beth as you will see. In fact I'm very partial to the other guys too especially Marcus and can't wait to finish his story "FORGED IN ASH" which I started today and am already so hooked!
Although Angela did a very good, I feel that a male voice would have complemented this book a bit more, but Trish's ability to take you into a world of terrorism, murder and kidnapping with such finesse, skillfully brings this book to life.
Yes, when "Russ" has Beth and Zane is close on their heels but has to be very careful or it will cost Beth her life or maybe even his own. The way this scene is executed made me hold my breath and think "no, please be careful, for you and for her.... no!!!"
Also, when Marcus was "hit" OMG I couldn't believe it, I was very upset. Not giving anymore spoilers.
This book is so worth a credit or just paying for it. I can't see how anyone could be disappointed in any way. It's jam packed with everything you could possibly want: Romance, Action, Intreague, Clever Twists and so much more.
Obviously I loved Dalton but I really liked Caitlin just as much. I think that the brother, Brandon will make for a wonderful story too so I'm really hoping there will be a sequel. Kaleo did a fantastic job with both male and female characters! He was very funny too and very appealing in the passionate moments. He did a great job!
Yes it actually was and so I did even though it was about seven and a half hours long!
It's a lovely story. Gets to you right from the beginning. Very well written. Funny, passionate, interesting story line even for the secondary characters. Everyone was just as interesting. I really did enjoy this lovely romance.
I must admit that this book scared me a little bit, no spoilers don't worry. But it was passionate and steamy and with the right amount of action. It's a shame this is the only book of hers on here - AUDIBLE YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES! I'm now reading another of her books called The Perfect Mix under her English name "Charity Pineiro" and it's very different to this one and I'm loving it too!
I want her books on Audible so I can get through them quicker, believe me she's worth it.
I think that Tiffany Cole did a really good job of the narration and carried off both male and female characters equally well.
I would listen to it again but maybe not by myself, lol
It's different to my usual SEAL books from Sharon's mighty pen but I enjoyed it all the same! There was a lot of information in there which I felt needed more pages to delve deeper into each one, but I'm guessing that's where book two - Mortal Bite will lead me! I only like a few of the Vampire stories like Tina Folsom's Scanguards and obviously the Twilight Saga, but I'm glad to say that Sharon didn't disappoint in wetting my appetite with her rendition of the immortal world!
I really am looking forward to the second in the series as I now need to know how this continues.
It's not so easy to change from one topic to another but Sharon is obviously versatile enough to pull it off!
Again and again JD gives an amazing performance. He's not just a narrator, he's an actor through and through and he lives it through his portrayal of the characters.
I've grown accustomed to his voice and as soon as the reproduction begins I'm transported into the scene and am a silent member of the audience enjoying the unfolding of yet another really good story.
I enjoyed it from beginning to end. Granted it's not very long which is a shame as I could have listened to a whole lot more. DeMille obviously knows what he's talking about! He had me hooked from first minute! A great narration Scott Brick. A perfect duo. Loved it and would definitely recommend it!
Yes because it was so refreshing and a difference perspective on romance. A younger fresher perspective. It wasn't very long which makes you just sail through it in one go but definitely well worth the listen.
My favourite character was in fact Henry because he just sound like a really lovely guy. Who wouldn't want to meet someone like him.
Almost the end at the Art Gallery when they finally get it all out in the open.
It took me a while to get used the narrator because she sounded so young, just like another recent book, she sounded like a young Wynona Ryder which bothered me at first but then was smooth and cute. I really did enjoy it and hope that rest of the seried will be available soon!
Again, Lorelai did not disappoint! Just as good as the previous 5 books! I wish the rest of the series were available. I have No.11 downloaded but don't want to listen to it until I can listen to 7, 8, 9, and 10. Where are they? We want more Lorelai James!
I knew I was going to just love Colt and India. They are so perfect for each other. Again, the story differs from all the others, delves deeper into other issues like addiction and how others need to be less judgemental and appreciate the difficulties of getting over addictions. Colt is loveable and he is perhaps now my favourite, well, I don't know, they're all so good, it's darn well very difficult to choose!
What made "listening" to this book most enjoyable was obviously JD Hart and his fantastic voice. I am a big fan of Sharon Hamilton's SEALs. I love the way she portrays them and have so far loved all of them.
This book was too short for me because I "yummed it up" from begining to end. All of it is wonderful. I think there will be another book later on that will expland on this story for which I am grateful as I need to know how it continues.
JD has the ability to portray both the female and the males equally well. Obviously I love his male voices because of his amazing entonation. I'm very biast when it comes to him as I think he is so very talented!
It made me sad at times in my heart and I felt for Luke but as you will see, it all works out in the end and I want to know more about this couple.
Yes, Sharon, keep them coming!!!
