Chris Williams is looking for the perfect girl, but his choice, Isabella, is anything but what he imagined. In fact, she's walking trouble. New York Times best-selling author R. L. Mathewson brings us this second audiobook of the Pyte/Sentinel series. Listeners are sure to dislike not-so-nice-guy Chris, but they'll love actor Stella Bloom's performance. Through varied pitches and pacing, she gives life to hottie Chris and nerdy Isabella while her narration resounds clear as a bell. Listeners hoping for something a little sexy, a little vampiric, and a lot thrilling will enjoy this wild ride.
Chris Williams is used to making sacrifices. For years he's done his duty by his family and his calling as he awaited the one person that was meant for him. When she finally came into his life, she was nothing like the woman he'd expected. Instead of being the warrior ready to help him protect his family and the humans under his care he got.....
A computer geek named Isabella, who somehow managed to get her name on every Master's hit list. One minute she admits that she'd made a foolish mistake and the next she's kidnapped, held hostage by a crazy cult who steals her chocolate and she's sure is after her program, a program she has no plans on giving up anytime soon. As she tries to keep her wits about her, the sexiest man she's ever seen claims her, only he doesn't seem to happy about it. It's clear that he doesn't want her, but the stubborn man just won't let her go even when it's clear that he may not have a choice.

There were no Audible reviews available and so I downloaded this one on the reputation of the authors other books. BIG mistake. The story in this book is slow, the characters are poorly developed and the narration is ordinary. In future if there isn't an Audible review I will check out the reviews for the print editions on Amazon.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
I enjoyed the first book in this series. However, Chris and Izzy did not push any buttons for me. Chris was a total jerk to Izzy throughout the entire book. Izzy was a very immature, naive person. Having parents who only tolerated her existence until at age 16 she left home and they didn't bother looking for her. She has lived a very insular existence with her computers as her companions. She is a total genius when it comes to creating programs and hacking into secure systems. Everyone wants her except Chris. She continually has sex with him, he pushes her away, then goes to her for more sex, after all she is his mate.
The book was too long....it dragged in places. Very lil action until the end of the book.
OK, so Chris was a over the top JERK! He made me angry over his behavior through the whole book right up to almost the end. I'm so glad he turned it around. It was about time. Now, that type of emotion comes from an author and narrator who knows how to tell a story.
I just love the whole series! Each book gets better and I cant wait for more.
The narrator is the reason that I have purchased every audio book in this series. The story is good but the narrator Stella Bloom makes this book a thousand times better!!! A narrator can totally kill a book and this is an example where the narrator just makes this book AMAZING!!! Great Job
I really like this author. I thought her Neighbors From Hell series was very funny. With polish she could rank with Molly Harper or Janet Evanovich. The first book in this series was pretty good. BUT she has the habit of finding a phrase, usually a term of endearment, and then overuses it to death. In this book the overused phrase was "little mate". It was so overused I found myself waiting for it, then cringing every time I heard it. In most of her other books, while her overuse was annoying I could manage it. In this book though, I was totally overwhelmed. It didn't help that the main characters were totally unlikeable. I couldn't finish this book.
