"Sexy, steamy, and laugh-out-loud funny, Davidson's chick-lit foray into the paranormal is delightful." (Booklist)
Quirky, sexy and fun. I enjoyed the youthful point of view. Has some very detailed sex scenes which I enjoyed, but may not be appropriate for all ages.
If one were to take out all of the curse words, the audiobook would be half the length. I don't mind a few curses, but jeeze! I don't know what was more annoying, all the crude language or the irritating voice that read them.
I actually enjoyed this story. The narrator is not the best, but if you can get past that point, the listening is enjoyable. Good summer read or for light listening.
Loved this book and can't wait to hear the next. Perfect mix of paranormal, some romance and humor! I was looking for a new series after finishing Charlaine Harris Sookie series, I think I've found my new series! yay:)
The main character, Betsy, is so shallow and so one dimensional that the book is quite slow. It was hard to engage with the characters until about 2/3 of the way into the book. Even then, the characters still lack dimension, but at least a plot begins to develop.
I expected this book to be exactly what it was - a fun and light read. And I believe it was that. What caused me to give it the 2 star rating was the Narrator, Nancy Wu. I loved the main character of the series for her smart mouth, sassy sense of humor. But, that being said, I think I could have laughed more had the narrator been different. Nancy Wu is overly dramatic when delivering the lines of this story, which for me, took away from the humor. I'm positive if the narrator was different, or I read the actual book, I could have found the humor for what it was meant to be; tongue and cheek funny. I did listen to the brief sample before purchasing, but unfortunately I didn't get enough insight into just how horrible listening to Nancy's voice and portrayal of the character would be when listening to her for more than 30 minutes. I actually had to go back 4 times to get through the whole story because after a good two hours of her voice, I found I could not listen anymore. If you are looking for a fun read, this is the story. If you are looking for listening enjoyment, I don't recommend this narrator.
This book series is a fun light read. It makes me laugh and reminds me of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer original movie and the Clueless movie- both of which I liked and laughed at. It's not too deep, but if you want a fun series to read I would suggest this one- the characters are all very likable and the narrator is very good.
