    The moment Francesca and Ian met, the attraction was mutual, an exquisitely physical charge that ignited between them. To Ian, she was the kind of woman he couldn't resist. She was a true innocent. To Francesca, he was the kind of man she feared and desired - dark, extreme, commanding, and forbidden. What happened between them couldn't be ignored - only indulged, evolving into an inescapable bond.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    People who love books with billionaire alpha males and innocent females who tempt them may enjoy this book. My main issue was that I didn't connect with the characters and the story felt too similar to other books in the genre.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I did not like the accent used for Ian.

    During her nightly, clandestine swim in the freezing winter ocean, a grisly find leads Jane to startling revelations about her heritage: she is only half-human. Now, Jane must enter a world filled with supernatural creatures that are terrifying, beautiful, and deadly — all of which perfectly describe her new “friend,” Ryu, a gorgeous and powerful vampire.

    What did you love best about Tempest Rising?

    I love the story line- with the detailed, complex supernatural world, a quirky, fun heroine, and plenty of steamy scenes.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Tempest Rising?

    When Jane dives into the magicked pool and the power goes to her head. She gets a little high off the power, and it's pretty funny and quite entertaining to read.


    Did Kate Reinders do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    She did a good job differentiating between the characters, but I did not like all of their voices.


    Any additional comments?

    I really liked the story and Tempest Rising set the foundations for a promising new series for me to follow. There are a variety of characters and plenty of plot threads to follow up on. I just wasn't the biggest fan of the narration. I may pick up the print copy of book two to continue this series.

    Pretty good, not my favorite narrator, but the timing and delivery were very good.


    Which character – as performed by Tanya Eby – was your favorite?

    Maggie was my favorite character, as performed by Tanya Eby. Tanya's voice sounded very close to how I thought Maggie would sound.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I loved this book, it pulled my heart-strings. I wasn't in tears, but it is an emotional read, in a good way.


    Any additional comments?

    Excellent read/listen. I highly recommend this book to romance readers, especially readers looking for a holiday romance.

    I loved the world-building, and the audio was very good too. I would rate this in my top 5 favorite audiobooks
