Deep, hot, sexy. Meaning the story line in this novel sets the foundation for the other novels behind it. I have the set (purchased from Amazon Kindle) and have read them all. This one was the hardest one to get through reading. That said each one after just gets better and better. The last three were my favorites, funny and battle of the sexes. One type of Male dominated culture meets a modern day lady who is not going to take it.
Unfortunately not all of them are here otherwise I would say purchase them all and if they are like the books.... well lets just say they were all niter's that were worth the wait.
Male character has to put aside what he was raised to believe and go with his heart. We have all been there, when what you were raised with has to change.
I think this novel would have been better with a male and female narrator. I thought that the intro narrator was the who narrator the whole novel. I was disappointed in the narrator doing the male characters. Grace's southern accent came across as forced and slow.
At first I really didn't like the female character, Grace came across as weak and silly. Later on I got to the point of cheering her on. Sometimes characters grow on you.
Audible needs to get the other books.
Talk about an Alpha male with problems.
The Pamala Palmer series.
One shrink telling another shrink off.
I was not impressed with the narration. I think that there just was not enough variation in the voices to make the characters come alive. I was really disappointed in that. Thou, I have read all the books in this series and was really looking forward to hearing their sultry purrs and the New Species were blunt and not varied. Felt like the narrator was distancing themself from the male charactors. If the male parts where given to a different narrator then this whole series could have come out better.That said, do give them a try and read the books. They are page turners.
The story keeps with the other novels and doesn't spend too much time rehashing the past story line. Writer jumps right into the action.
The picking up of why and how she is the way she is. Thou all the trials she keeps trying to save who she can and kick butt of those she can. A great character that doesn't spend a whole lot of time complaining about her life but taking charge of what she can do with the time she has. Ok and my husband loves the fact that she smokes pot in the other books.
I find that characters that you read about being from other foreign countries, you don't get the value of them until they are read correctly with an accent.
You take names that are french, Asian, German, etc. and read them you mind tends to think in English but when you hear them correctly spoken and with that accent it changes your whole perception of that character. Like Jaun Claude in the Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton. The narrator gives the character more attractive and believable character then when I read the books. Which I complete miss understood the names. Thou from that point and time when you read the next books that is how that character will sound in your head.
Yes. I do not recommend trying to fall to sleep to this book. It kept me up because I was laughing. The witty comments and ok her only servant is hilarious. The burning butt chapter I have played several times. The narrator gives him a whiney voice that just cracks me up.
Please keep tell the narrator and the author to write more books to this series.
Hell Yes. If you like funny, action, great narration, romance and surprise plots, this is the series for you.
Laurel K. Hamilton's series of Juanita Blake. I pray that the author writes more to this series and keeps this narrator.
Dorina and Lez-Cezar. Even in the arguing, going from shouting to whispering, she makes it feel like they are right there with you.
Yes!! The first chapter jumps you right in. Love the way it is written to give Dorina's response to the self defense and Lez-Cezar's problem of trying to rescue a girlfriend that don't remember you but she might kick your butt.
Read or listen to in order. This series I listen to and loved it. This is one I would say that I will keep and am checking her other series in audible. I was really disappointed that there are only 3 books but they are longer. I really hope the author writes more and uses the same narrator. She just makes it all work.
Dorina. Hands down, take no gruff and if your going to go down take as many of them with you as you can.
My favorite scenes are the fights and the interactions with the characters. Her love interest is an all out and alpha male but she don't need him or want him. I found several chapters funny and replayed them over and over.
The dysfunction between "Daddy dearest and Dorina". How she copes and makes no secret about who she is and what she does.
Loved the narator. You just need to keep in mind that Dorina has like a split personality. The book is written in each character's point of view. The best way to keep up, when you first listen or read it, is to give it a bit and she uses the character to explain later what happened. Which for a fictional book makes it more real. Because really if you had a dark side it would ruin it if it was written in Dorina Chapter 1 and then Dorina Vampire Chapter 2.
Love the SERIES!
Sex scenes are nice but I love the plots. The heckling between the twins. The action keeps you on your toes and keeps you wanting more. Briony character is completely believable and she stands up for herself.
The whole series and hope he will keep going!
When I first listen to this book everytime Briony had to protect herself, I held my breath! The action is written in a way were you are on the edge of your seat and ask for help... 'cause if she dies or looses the baby I am going to loose it.
action, sexy, suspense, keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Yes! If you like fiction and consiperacy theories... a what if the goverment could make the better soldier? Stronger, smarter, faster? What would the goverment right be and what would there rights be?
Even today soldiers are used to further the American Armforces to stay ahead of other countries. I would warn that these books are graphic and love it when the bad guies are taken care of.
If you like Bourne Identity you will love this series!
He is awesome!!! Oh he needs to do more books. He has one of the rare voices that can carry thru any device. He varies his voice enough that you can tell all the different characters apart and stays with it thru the whole series.
Please do more books. Just love the voice.
Yes. When the main character has to relive the "world of blood" on the game pieces, ugh you want the bad guy dead already. Makes for a great cliff hanger and how much mental power or images would be like.
After listening too all the "Grave" book where Kat is the main character, then listen to this one. That way it makes more sense. The narrator was great with keeping the voices to match the characters. You can't miss with this book!
I liked the whole book so I can't think of only one scene but the dancing ball or how she tells him off in his own car was really good.
Look out Ann Rice here is the new vampire tail!
Yes. Provided that you like action and saucey books like 50 Shades of Grey. I like these type more because the have a funny side as well.
Bones by far. He has a straight forward type of personality and how he gives it to Kat's mother. I laugh so hard I had tears. Sometimes you wish you could do that type of talk to your in-laws.
I would have to say Menkaries. Sorry for the spelling if wrong (audio not ebook) like really like the voices. Every character has their own sound and she keeps to them for each book. Bones sounds like bones ect on each book. I hope the author keeps with this and just keeps them coming. I can't wait for a new one.
My favorite is the wedding ambush. Nothing like ditching your exboyfriend and he shows up at your friends wedding. Laugh my butt off!!
Read them in order. I love them all and I am telling you that if you like Laurell K Hamilton or Kresley Cole you will love this author and series.
he drives but the car ends up on fire.
Laugh, rewind, laugh rewind, laugh some more. Wipe the tears from my eyes. Quote
"can an inner monolog hyperventalate?"
Once you start this book you will not want to stop, unless you have to hear that again. :)
