So far Tempt Me At Twilight is my favorite Hathaway story. Although based on the reviews for book 4 that might change. I love the Hathaway family. They are witty and fun and always make me laugh. This is a fun/easy listen and Rosalyn Landor is excellent! I would suggest starting with book 1 first, but this would make a great stand alone story as well.
Hands down one of the best paranormal romance series EVER! Most tend to get stale after too many books, but this one keeps getting better and better. This is number 14 in the Immortals After Dark series and it is as fresh as the first. I love how Ms. Cole weaves the timelines of her books together and revisits moments we have seen by other characters in previous books. It's just brilliant! I wish I could give this book (and the series) 10 stars!
This series just keeps getting better and better with every book. And the cliffhanger ending – WOW! I both love and hate Jennifer Armentrout for her incredible endings. This book was definitely more intense than the first two as emotions run high with the return of Dawson and the hunt for Beth. I don’t want to give away any spoilers – so I’ll just say this is another amazing story by a very talent author.
This was a thrilling conclusion to the 2-part Archetype series (my favorite of 2014). Much like the first book, this was chock-full of action, romance and endless plot twists. It had the perfect blend of everything I enjoy in a romance novel. Some people might be turned off by the sci-fi/dystopian aspect of this book, but at it's heart this is a love story. There are plenty of swoon-worthy moments and it's not filled with endless pages of meaningless sex scenes.
Khristine Hvam is one of my favorite narrators and she did an excellent job of capturing the heart and soul of Emma.
I LOVED this book and can't recommend it enough.
From the start I was instantly drawn into this story. Told in duel points of view, it was such a mesmerizing listen. The narrators did an excellent job of bringing this well written and unique story to life. It made me feel transported to another place and time and I became utterly lost within the words.
These Broken Stars is a story of survival and love, set in a sci-fi world, with intriguing mysteries to solve, that will have you listening late into the night. There are so many twists and turns and “I didn’t see that coming” moments. It will have you guessing almost to the very end.
This was such an unexpected gem of a book. 5 HUGE stars!!
This narrator was like listening to a robot read a text book. There was no emotion whatsoever and no change from one character to the next. Definitely not a good choice for a romance/erotic story. This was a great conclusion to the series and I enjoyed the POV of Caleb but the narration just ruined it for me. If you enjoyed the first two books do yourself a favor and skip the audio - get the print version instead.
I loved this conclusion to the Blackstone Affair. Ethan is one of my all-time favorite book boyfriends. Even though this could have been an epilogue I am so glad the author decided to give us a fourth book instead. I love Ethan and Brynne and I enjoyed this final journey of love and healing. It was the perfect conclusion. I also love Shane East and Grace Grant as the narrators.
5 star listen!
Overall I did enjoy this book and I did like the concept of a half-human half-vampire lead character. However, this book lacked some serious editing. The story was choppy and there were way too many plot twists and turns that just didn’t make sense. It seemed as though the author threw everything but “the kitchen sink” into this story. It was a little over the top in my opinion. Thankfully this is a very entertaining book at the right price. For that reason I will most likely move on to the 2nd installment.
Ruin and Rising is a beautiful and emotional ending to a fantastic trilogy. I absolutely loved this book and I could not put it down. I lost a lot of sleep over this one and I must say it was well worth the sleepless nights. Much like the previous two books this was a rich story with well-developed characters and plenty of plot twists and turns.
The final installment ties up many loose ends and comes to an absolutely satisfying conclusion. Although many were disappointed by the ending (mainly the love story) I thought the author did a wonderful job of pulling off a love quadrangle. There was never a “clear choice” for Alina and I believe the story came to a logical and satisfying ending.
I cared so much for these characters, including the villain; he was so cruel, calculating and absolutely evil but I still found him completely mesmerizing. Kudos to Bardugo’s brilliant writing!
I’m sad to let this story and these characters go, but I look forward to more from such a talented author.
5 HUGE stars!!
I loved this entire series. Laini Taylor is such a talented writer. It's like artistry on paper or ear candy for audible listeners. Her characters are deep with extensive world building - you can't help but get sucked into this fantasy she has created. I crave more and can only hope this is NOT THE END of such a wonderful series. Thank the God Stars, but I really want more!!!
Definitely a 5 star listen!!!!
I don’t know what it is about this series but I was hooked from book 1. This is definitely one of my guilty pleasures. The final installment of "The Selection" may have been predictable but I so enjoyed the journey. Kiera Cass is a very talented author and I look forward to more of her books.
This was a credit-worthy, 5 star listen. Good story, great narration and that cover art is perfection!
