    "hummm ..... overall it was decent"

    It took me a moment to get through this one. Okay, Sasa, the heroine, was a dimwit. I mean who bargains to make their mother a vampire and has no freakin concept of what that actually means? And then compounds the problem by making additional bargains without thinking it through, really?! And Vasilije is a man-whore (and really Sasa is not too far from it). This one I just didn't get or have more dept. I kept waiting for it to get better or for Sasa to gain common sense, but nope never happened. I will say that the end was a little better than the rest of the book. Just my opinion :)

    On a positive note John Lazoro! Wow, he just has a wonderfully deep voice. I loved listening to him. I stayed with the book just because, even if I think Vasilije was a man-whore, Lazoro makes him a deliciously sounding man-whore. :)

    Story
    "Ahhhhh vampires+suspense+action+passion+romance"

    Vasilije, a hunky 400 year old powerful vampire that's been a bad ass for hundreds of years and answers to no-one and he's a love em n leave em type that is until he meets Sasa, an empath, who makes a deadly deal with his enemy. Sasa has to get closer to him in order to spy on him and, in return, they will make her dying Mother a vampire.

    Unfortunately (or fortunately) they become very very close and that's when loyalties are tested and broken when Sasa has to report back and, of course, Vasilije finds out. It's got a tense plot, murder, likeable and thoroughly nasty characters, double-crossing and an important sub plot that will eventually result in the 8 vampire Sons of Navarus building an Army and going to war.

    This starts off as a hard tale but eventually passion, tension, corruption, sex, betrayal, forgiveness and love all play their part to make this an exciting new and very welcome addition for us vampire groupies to get lost in.

    Worth a credit? Yes, it was a very enjoyable listen but a word of warning - if you don't like passionate sex scenes or bad language then give this book a miss.

    "He's a sexy bad boy vamp"

    If you like vampire stories that involve lots of hot steamy sex then this one is for you. Vasilije is one sexy, bad boy vamp. He is totally ruthless and cares little for anything other than himself. However, that all changes when he meets Sasa. Of course lots of steamy sex happens with some action and adventure thrown in along the way.

    Although this was a good listen, there were some plot points that didn’t make sense or were never fully explained. The world building could have been developed more and explaining some of the actions of the main hero would have helped.

    This is a promising series…just wish Audible had all the books.

    "Dominating Hot Vampire ! Yummy"
    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book will the Hot forceful no nonsense Vampire. I found the leading lady a bit weak but hay it was a good enough story. The narrator John Lazaro has a very deep sexy voice that i loved listening to. This is a sexy listen so if you don't enjoy books with hot sex, stay away. :)

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "WOW Erotic Vampire Story"

    I have to say this is the most erotic vampire book I've listened too. Lot's and lot's of sex. Needless to say it was a yummy listen. I'm sure I will be getting the others. You can tell from my review this one contains strong language and sexual situations. Enjoy.

    "Deep Sexy Voice...Oh My!"

    Well John Lazaro's voice is the deepest I've ever heard. I was worried that his female voice would sound like a wounded dog but I was plesantly surprised. He does a really great job. I enjoyed this story but I think the storyline dropped a few connecting pieces. Sometimes it was hard to see the link between scenes. Without giving too much away Sasa is made to help Tatiana get revenge on Vasilije. So I get this but then all of a sudden they are at Tegan's house and she is his girlfriend. It picks up fairly quickly so you get what happened but I guess it would have been nice to see what Sasa was forced to do and understand how she arrived where she was. Then there were other parts when Vasilije and Sasa's connection stops. No explanation of why and then poof they are together. Does not make sense to me. I sometimes felt like chapters were edited out but should have been put back in. Overall it was enjjoyable. I will most likely continue with the series but will not rush out to get the next book. If I am looking for something to read I will use this series. I did enjoy it and there were some good parts and I think there is potential as this book sets up for the other characters and how the story will progress from there. So overall I am a 3 1/2 stars for this one.

    Story
    "PRETTY GOOD !! OLD MIXED WITH NEW TAKE ON VAMPS"

    Let me first start off by saying that I really enjoyed the narrator. I think he could have done a better job expressing different emotions; the anger, etc. was a bit on the flat side, but he does have the right kind of deep, sexy voice for this type of performance. Hope he picks up his game in the following stories.

    I thought the story was pretty good. My main complaint was the lack of character development; granted we got to know Vasilije and his background better as the story progressed, however, even that was a bit on the weak side. And, Sasa, well there was nothing, except the history with her mother and that she was an empath. I would have liked to have gotten to know her better and get more of a sense of who she was other than her mother's keeper. Maybe we'll hear more about her in the future.

    Overall, I liked it enough to download the next in the series. Hope we get to know Saint better. Also, I virtually never (with the exception of 3 out of hundreds) give 5's, rarely give 4's, so for me 3's don't mean it was bad.

    "Great Narrator!"

    Sensual, captivating narration by John Lazaro. Storyline good, but not compelling. Lacked history and depth.

    "Good start to a sexy vampire series"

    This story has "good bones" and definite potential as a burgeoning series. The writing was fairly basic...no major frills and added drama..but it was enjoyable, erotic, and funny all the same. The narration added to it for sure, he has a very delicious voice. The one negative in the narration is that he remains somewhat flat...no major inflection and passion...but definitely good enough to make me want to hear more. If you're interested in a quick listen, this is a good book to purchase.
