    Story

    There is just not one thing I could pin point about this book that made me bored with it.
    Story was okay, but not very descriptive. Not really fleshing out the world the story was based in. Characters had substance, but not enough to make me want to find out what happens to them next. The detail the writer gave when explaining any type of "love scene" was vague and filled with "clouds" and "rainbows". Speaking of rainbows, a third into the book and I was getting quite annoyed about the repetitive "rainbow" sayings ("sending rainbows", "my rainbow", "his rainbow"). The Narrator did a good job with differing the voices of the different characters, but her voice was so calm and soothing through the rest of it that it started to become monotone. Because the story never seemed to have any true action or drama and the lack of emotion in the narrator's voice, the book reminded me of elevator music.

    For Gordon Van Zandt, life was one of duty and loyalty to his country, so when 9/11 happened he dropped out of college and joined the Marine Corps. This youthful idealism soon vanished, one fateful day in a war torn city in Iraq. Ten years later, he is still struggling with the ghosts of his past, but must now face a new reality thrust upon him and his family.

    Story

    This is one of my favorite types of genres, but this is probably the worst book I have ever read or listen to. If you are new to this genre, I strongly suggest skipping this story and not wasting your money or credit for it. And this is the first (and I hope only) time I have ever suggested that.
    First this narrator should not be reading any kind of fiction. His speaking and reading style is solidly bland and monotone. And him trying to imitate a female voice is beyond annoying and nonexistent most times. It's like he is reading from a dictionary. I did not think he even deserved one star out of five, he was so bad.
    Then the story is pretty much flat. The characters have no character, haha. They are not well developed and they left me with no desire to like them enough to find out what happens to them. They say to prepare for this and be careful of that then they go ahead and do what they warning others about. And when they speak, it's all choppy and boring.
    I only got about half way in before asking myself why am I torturing myself with this junk?
    And I found another book, a better book, to hopefully wash this out of my head.

    What do you do when you wake up to a whole new life…with dangerous urges you can't control? Medic Drake McKennan has never been good at following protocol, so she doesn't think twice about rendering emergency care when a teenager's life is at stake - even if the young girl is in the throes of Were fever and any sane human should know better. It isn't the bright shining pain of the bite or even the wrenching agonies of the fever that convinces Drake everything in her life has changed.

    Story

    This book had no story. It was mostly about people thinking about having sex or two women having sex. This was not a romance. When it started to get a bit of a storyline, it kept throwing out weird unrealistic things like women getting women pregnant (and it didn't sound like a surrogate (male) either) or only women could be mates to women. I had to keep rewinding it to try and figure out what was going on again. And again. I think I only got maybe two hours into before quitting.

    Story

    I might have some problems with this author's "present time" romances, but her historical works are always a sure bet. Her characters, especially her female characters, are always endearing and competent, not showing an amazing lack of intelligence that so many historical romances do. Her writing gives enough sense of emotion without overdoing it, and is not inundated with so much "Shakespearian" prose. The narrator does a remarkable job with not giving the many characters silly sounding voices or having bad talking habits that distract the reader (listener) from this beautiful story.

    All his life, Rand T’Ash has looked forward to meeting his HeartMate, with whom he could begin a family. Once a street tough, now a respected nobleman and artisan, he has crafted the perfect HeartGift, which, in the custom of the psychically gifted population of the planet Celta, is the way a man finds—and attracts—his wife… Danith Mallow is irresistibly drawn to the magnificent necklace on display in T’Ash’s shop, but she is wary of its creator, despite an overpowering attraction. In a world where everyone is defined by their psychic ability, Danith has little, placing her at the opposite end of the social spectrum from T’Ash. But T’Ash refuses to accept her rejection and sees it as a challenge instead. They are HeartMates, but can T’Ash persuade his beloved to accept her destiny by his side?

    Story

    Was the story written that way, stilted and unemotional? Or is the narrator a robot? The narrator was so mechanical, there was no flow or life to the story. And eventually, I started to get a headache, literally. After a couple hours (and a couple of pills), I still couldn't pay attention to the story to say whether it was good or not. I think I'll try the written version instead.

    What's a duke to do when a carefully selected bride rejects him rather than marry without love? He salvages his pride by marrying the next woman who falls into his arms. Joyous Fiona MacQuarrie bewitched the Duke of Belmore the moment she appeared from nowhere and knocked him over...literally. Joyous MacQuarrie is a Scottish witch whose powers of white magic are not always easy for her to control. When Alec's pride makes him choose to marry her, Joy turns the life of the most serious and snobbish duke in England upside down.

    Story

    It was probably meant to be charming and funny, but the author portraying the main female character as a flighty dim wit was beyond annoying. It followed the same path as so many others who did versions of the same theme (Clueless idiot tries to help, but make matters worse. Doesn't learn so does the same thing that made it worse over and over again). Writing this as a regency romance with a little magic did nothing to interest me into finding out what happens to the characters.

    Story

    When I got the first book in the series, it was a gamble that I would like it. But I loved it and so bought the next and then the next because it was so good. Now, in the fourth book, this author has still kept me riveted to the story. He refreshes the readers' minds about the first days of the Alaska infection with different point of views from several new characters. He introduces new friends (mostly those who don't know how to survive and can not accept the reality of the infection, providing a striking contrast with the main group) and now has the militia from the third book hunting them down along with a horde of the infected.
    I knew when I started this book, that it was most likely going to be the last in this series. But I am still craving more from this author.

    I do not know if it was deliberate for drama or a way for her to control her breathing, but this narrator kept making long pauses, at the end of sentences and even half way through.It was just distracting and totally ruined the rhythm of the story. I could not even make it forty minutes before throwing in the towel and choosing another audiobook by a different author and definitely a different narrator.

    This wasn’t the adventure she’d signed up for…A sexy boss, a rough crossing, and pirates - all Brylie Winston wanted was a job to help her earn money to buy her own restaurant. She hopes to earn it by working as a chef on a cruise to Antarctica. But she’s slept with her boss, which throws her off-balance even more than the rough seas and warnings of pirates in the area. And he’s determined to have a repeat performance.

    This is the second time I listened to this narrator. And the second time she kept me from enjoying an audiobook that was highly rated. She has poor breath control. After almost every sentence or after several words, she takes an annoyingly loud indrawn breath like she is racing through her speaking so fast that she can't breathe. And now the only thing I can remember after an hour of struggling through this book is gasp, gasp, and gasp.

    After listening to the first, I was really looking forward to finding out what happened to Lissa, the main character. The first book was awesome. She found herself in a unusual situation (being turned into a vampire, and told she would be hunted and killed for being a rogue, and blackmailed by werewolves) and she dealt with it, in a lot of humor and butt kicking ways.
    But this book, she was a push over. She didn't deal with it (compliance is not dealing with it). She talked about not wanting this or being against that, but only in her head and then does what she is told like accepting an engagement to Gavin, who is starts to become very possessive and verbally abusive.
    This series started out as a urban fantasy with a strong female character, now it's becoming about a woman who is accepting being abused, molested, and tortured by not only the men (and there are a lot of them, very few female characters in this story) in her life, but also by her community and the laws that govern that community (she gets beaten for saving the so called good guys).
    Even though this book ended on a very dramatic cliffhanger, I think this might be my last book of the series.

After all, if anyone discovers her writings, they'll find scandalous fantasies involving the newest rake in town alongside entirely-too-candid thoughts about her typical dreary suitors. Aurora will either be forced into a loveless marriage with the first nodcock to make an offer, or she'll be assigned a permanent position on the shelf. Oh, dear good Lord. What catastrophe will God smite down upon her next?

    In an audiobook, the narrator is just as important as the story itself. If the narrator has some bad talking habits or just a bad sounding voice, the audiobook is hard to like. The narrator spoke well, but she unfortunately has a high pitched girly voice. Even though she did very well giving each character their own sound so it was half way easy to identify the character speaking, she gave most, if not all, a very annoying accent that started to give me a headache.
