Caine's Reckoning: Hell's Eight Series, Book 1 | [Sarah McCarty]

Caine's Reckoning: Hell's Eight Series, Book 1

From the moment he beds Desi, Caine knows turmoil will follow. Desi might have the face of a temptress, but she also has a will of iron, and while she needs his protection, she's determined that no man will control her again. They establish an uneasy bond, but it isn't enough for Caine. He wants all Desi has to offer. He wants her screams, her moans, her demands...everything. Yet there's still a bounty on Desi's head, and keeping her sexually satisfied is proving easier than keeping her alive.

    "wrong genre?"

    This book maybe listed under the wrong genre. If you are looking for a historical romance, you expect a good romance with some sex thrown in; this is a lots and lots of sex with a little romance thrown in. Of the 14 hours of book 10 are explicit, graphic, crude,possibly offensive to many readers, in your face sex (no pun intended). Romance readers usually want even the sex scenes romantic, even the wording is soft and modest. This books uses a lot of hard language to describe the sex and it does describe sex over and over and acts that I have never seen described in a romance novel. Definitely for a mature audience. I gave this one star to warn or entice those that are considering this choice. If this was under erotica I would probably have given it 4 stars but I don't buy erotica.

    Story
    "Godzilla of the West"

    This is a Godzilla book - the story is lame, the characters are lamer, the editing is nonexistent, the narration is dreadful, the voices do not match the action or characters. Godzilla at least has some redeeming social value but as far as I can see, this book's only borderline value is sex education
    And yet I listened all the way to the end - which probably says more about me than the book!!

    Story
    "Sex is a little to much"
    Where does Caine's Reckoning rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is to Graphic in the sex department the most of the story is about sex, not the story There needs to be more story outside of the sexual scene and what is this authors fascination with sex in the wrong hole???? Just a little too much but the story line was good aside from that.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Desi fought with the Rooster


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No

    "A great blend of adventure and romance"

    I got this book in a three books for two credits sell, and I was totally no disappointed. I think the narrator did a great job of capturing the emotions that the characters felt. the only thing that dragged on for me a bit was the ending. After I knew they were together, were going to stay together, I totally expected the book to come to an end. But we have to bask in the glory of them being in love for a while more with a very descriptive sex scene or two first.

    "Ok"

    This book was just Ok, that's the best I can say about it. It was the first in the series I listened to and I am not in the least bit interested in any of the others in the series.

    "Hooked"

    This book is off the chain. I enjoyed it so much i'm listening to it again. I could feel the heat of the moment and it reminds me of the charcter that plays in the new TV series on cable JUSTIFED with the star Timothy Olaphant as a Texas Ranger.

    If you looking for something to get you hot and bothered this is it.

    "WOW!"

    This was a fabulous book. I listened to it in only 2 days, it kept me on the edge of my seat. It has a wonderful plot and steamy sex scenes. I can't wait for the next one. When will July be here? I highly recommend.

    "Interesting Book"

    This was my first time listening to a book by Sarah McCarty. I enjoyed the book. It was different I must say. What was interesting to me is to see loyalty. Something that is totally lacking in today's society. It is comforting to see people interested in each other's lives, loving each other and working towards a common goal. I know it's just a book, but I got lost in this book. I usually read a book for pure enjoyment. It does not always have to make sense. You must admit their devotion to each other is enlightening, their sense of justice makes it all come together.

    Of course it does not make common sense entirely but it is entertaining. The main female character really got on my nerves a few times, but the story line was pretty good.

    Again, the draw for me was the love and devotion Hell's 8 have for each other. It grabs your heart strings and brings you into the fold of the story and leads you on. The sex was explicit and there was a lot of it. The book was well developed it makes you want to know more and find out what makes them tick and what next. I usually do not like historical romances or books, but this series is an exception.

    "This book rocks"

    This is the perfect book for those who like erotica with a plot. Dont download it if you are looking for traditional romances with sugared up language. This book is not vile but very hot!!!
