I really wasn't going to buy any more of this series after reading book 1 but I decided to get this one anyway because it had better reviews than The Doctor Wears A Stetson. Over all it was just like the first one with Dallas wanting Gillian so fiercely, just like Cameron wanted Jessie in the first book. Both brothers refused to admit to falling in love and saw what they felt as just lust. So, I'm going to assume that the other two brothers' books are going to be exactly the same. Therefore, I will not be buying anymore of this series. There's really no excitement in these book, just a whole lot of angst and lust.
As to the narrator: She did a really good job on the voices. No emotion but still she did a good job. I would listen to her again. There are a couple of narrators who read the books and when it calls for a laugh the narrator actually laughs. I love those kind of narrators. The ones who whisper, murmur, sigh, sound angry, etc.
What a wonderful series. I laughed through all 3 books and was saddened to have each one end.
I absolutely loved Lorelei, Paige and Kennedy and their men, of course, Dallas, Matt and Griffen.
Each book had it's own brand of humor. I will definitely reread them.
A great love story, a little angst, and some great sex, too.
Loved Lorelei's Mom. She was hysterical. And loved Kennedy's Dad, Buddy and Uncle Wally.
Funniest books I've ever read.
As for the narrator: Simply AWESOME. What more can I say?
Some really funny stuff came out of the authors mind when she wrote these books. I've already read Shame on You and this one today and when I finish this review I'm going to read Shame on Him.
Paige had some really funny lines and thoughts. Matt was absolutely wonderful. Nice to see Kennedy and Lorelei again. Andy was an idiot and was a perfect match for Melanie.
Love, love, loved Paige's mother, Matt's Dad, Eunice and Fran. They were some crazy old ladies and a gent.
The F-BOMB was used quite a bit and there was SEX. So if you're not looking for that kind of book, move on.
I got all three of these books and the audible version free with my KindleUnlimited. What a deal for a lot of great laughs.
As for the narrator: She made the book. She was absolutely hysterical. Without her reading I don't think it would have been nearly as funny. Wonderful job..
For anyone who called this book stupid or silly or whatever, they have no sense of humor whatsoever.
I have 800+ reviews and I've been reading for over 30 years and I can tell you this is the funniest book I've ever read. I have never laughed so much from the beginning to the end of a book.
I loved Kennedy and her army attitude and I loved Griffen for waiting all those years for Kennedy. That's a great love, waiting 18 years.
Loved Paige and Lorelei. Loved Kennedy's Dad.
Loved the whole damn book. Swear words and all.
Oh, and I loved the sex, too.
As to the narrator: Just PHENOMENAL! Ms. McFadden whispered, yelled, murmured, gasped, was as sarcastic as hell and she made this book worth listening to. Awesome job!!
So, I've read all the Alpha Pack books and this was my least favorite. However, it was nice seeing the others: John Hammer, Jax, Ryon, Zander, Noah, Sariel ( <- my personal favorite,) etc, etc.
I did like Nick and Calla but their angst wasn't that enjoyable. AND it was like the author was unaware of any kind of an endearment except "baby or babe." Good grief, that word was used 39 times, mostly in the second half of the book. That's way too much for one word to be used in a book. So, no, this wasn't my favorite and I think I'm done with this series. I mean, Really? To have to wait 8 or 10 or 12 months for the next book? That's so becoming ridiculous now. This is book 6 and there's supposed to be another 3 or 4 more? So 3 or 4 years of waiting? I've enjoyed it up until now but I'm done. I think I'll stick to trilogies that are all out or if there's 6 or 8 or 10 books to a series I'll read those so there won't be any waiting.
As to the narrator: She was alright. I have no idea why Kirsten Potter didn't narrate this book, like the first 5, but Ms. Gavin didn't do a horrible job. I would definitely listen to her again.
Vampire Fight Club
Pretty good book. It had a good storyline and some good secondary characters. I really liked Nate and Lena. Also liked Marsden, Eidolon, Shade, Luc and Wraith. It had some good sex too. This is my first time reading anything by this author and I liked her writing so I’ll look into more of her books. 5 stars.
Another pretty good book. I think Uriel was just awesome and Kata was very likable. Yannah sounded kinda cool, for a demon. You didn’t meet Sergei but he was described as being evil enough in the book that you felt like he was there all along. Marika? What can I say about that crazy, vicious bitch? And the backstory about why the battle happened with the demon at the docks in London was pretty darn slick, leaving Uriel to worry for, at least, two centuries. The sex was very good. The reason I didn’t give this 5 stars is because it made me crazy every time I read the word “husked.” I looked up the word and nowhere did it have anything to do with speaking. She husked? He husked? How about groaned, grumbled, whispered, murmured, etc. Something that makes sense. This is my first read by Alexandra Ivy and that single word would keep from reading anything else by her. I’m afraid she’d continue using that stupid word and I would spend too much time cringing. 4 stars.
This is my favorite one so far but that’s probably because I read Jacob’s story last year. I liked it but, as I said in my review, I can’t see myself reading anything by this author because she just goes on and on telling a story and really not letting the players in the book participate, just pages and pages with no one saying a word. This was sorta like that. However, I really liked Kane and Corrine. And it was nice to see Jacob, Noah and Abram. And the sex was awesome.The only thing that made me crazy was how many times Destiny or Sweet Destiny was used. It was a lot considering this was a novella. 4 stars.
Dragon on Top
Oh well, 3 novellas out of 4 isn’t bad, because I won’t be reading this last book. This is the drawback to these kinds of bundled books. I just can’t read a book where the author refers to a woman’s parts as a pu$$y. I know a lot of you like that but to me it’s just disgusting. I don’t read books without sex but that’s just dirty and I like romantic sex. I’m glad it was the last book because I really enjoyed the others.
As to the narrator: I don't know! Most of the time I like Ms. Eyre's reading. She makes the men sound like men, even if they all sound alike, at least they sound manly. However, when the book says someone yells she read in a regular tone and when it say someone is whispering she never does. If Ms. Eyre did what the book said and put some emotions in her reading she would be awesome. Just sayin'
I read Lovely, Dark and Deep in July and absolutely loved it so when I saw this one I jumped all over it. Loved Brody and Sam and was thrilled that they were both hiding out. I was sorry about Cynthie and was astounded as to what happened with Tom and Donna. I was also thrilled at what happened to Brent. Great storyline, great couple and great sex but not too much. AND I'm so glad that neither on these books were cliffhangers.
I hate, hate, hate cliffhangers. Now then, I've read every one of Ms. Sandlin's books, except Chenoire, I don't read short stories or novellas.
I do hope she has a new book coming out soon.
As to the narrator: Ms. McFadden never disappoints. Men sound strong and sexy, and that's all that's important to me. When men sound like girls I just can't listen.
How this narrator ever got more than 1 star is beyond me. I'm only at 2% and Nick is telling Chris that the senator has been murdered and both Nick and Chris sound exactly the same.
Chrystal, another reviewer, said it all: the narrator is horrible. I'am soo done with this listen.
I would also like to say that the description tells us what the book is about or we can zip over to Amazon and look at reviews. This is AUDIBLE! What we need to review is the narrator. Does he or she suck? Why? Is he or she too nasal-y, too sweet for the kind of book he or she is reading, to gruff, too bland, too robotic, lacks emotion. Is he or she doing nothing but reading the book? Not changing his or her voice for the male and female voices? Is the narrator sounding the same whether she or he is reading a whisper spoken?
Most of us on AUDIBLE don't really care what the book is about. We want to know about the narrator! IMO..
An amazing book and a series group of people I'll miss terribly. West and Georgiana were marvelous, with just the right amount of angst going on. Loved Caroline and, as always, it was wonderful to see Bourne, Cross and Temple, 3 great "dudes."
The sex in this book was some of the best I've ever read. It was just perfect.
I know I'll start at the beginning and read this series over and over again. It was, simply said, perfectly written.
As to the narrator: I really like Justine Eyre! Yeah, she does make all her men sound alike but they do sound like men and she could use a little more emotions in her performance but she has a wonderful reading voice. I guess what I really mean is that any female reader that can make a man sound manly is alright in my book. Listening to her on 1.25 seems perfect.
This is not my usual genre, I think it might have been the second alien book I've ever read and the other book was by the same author, I think? A Touch of Frost, which was an awesome read too.I really liked Jesse and Hunter. She loved and cared for her two sisters: Taylor and Jordan until it almost killed her. And Hunter, because he grew to love them all and took over the care of them. I really liked Dagger and Saber, too. I'am surprised that this author's next book is about someone who was only mentioned once on the last few pages of the book instead of about Dagger. She left you hanging about what happened to him then didn't write a book about it. AND, no, this is not a cliffhanger but it did leave you wondering.
This was a sensual read so all you Christian readers and "no sex" readers stay away. The F-bomb was let loose 15 times but since I'm a potty-mouth anyway it didn't bother me. But for all of you with Christian ears it would be a horrible thing for you.
As to the narrator: He did a damn good job. He gave Hunter a really sexy voice but with a male reader you'd expect that. He also gave the women a nice feminine voice, too, which you don't expect. Male narrators usually do a terrible job on women but Mr. Brenin did amazingly well. I would definitely want to listen to him again.
My headline goes out to Rosemary, the only other reviewer at this time. Sue Pitkin is one of the worst narrators, ever. Ronan sounds like a girl everytime he talks. Well, actually every man sounds like a girl every time they say anything. And these are supposed big tough Scotsmen. Really? AND when the two are SNEAKING out of the castle and surrounded by people the book said they whispered but that was not so with this narrator. It just sounded sooo stupid to be talking in a regular tone instead of a whisper. I shoud have looked at the other 11 reviews she did before getting this book. I would never listen to Ms. Pitkin again.
This is AUDIBLE and I'm reviewing the AUDIBLE version of this book. I'll finish it by just reading it. Another book ruined by the narrator. How unfair to the authors.
