    "Favorite of the series so far!"

    Rowr! Okay, this one is my favorite book in the series so far. I've pretty much liked them all, but this one was extra hot!

    "Really intense"

    This love story was so intense that I got shivers. The need between the main characters was so thick and obvious and subtle and sweet and sexy and just everything. I could tell there was a connection before the characters realized it, but it was so subtle that I didn't feel like they were just being thrown together for no reason. Every scene was important. Nothing was wasted and that's what I love most about Nalini Singh's work. Her books are so well developed, and the characters are constantly evolving and growing together. In this one in particular. The main characters where so different that at first I was wondering how she would make it work, but midway through the book it was obvious that they were meant for one another. I've read all of the novels in this series so far and this one is by far my favorite.

    I'm a grad student with very little time to edit reviews because I'm editing research papers. Forgive the typos. They're made with love.

    "Best of the dozen"
    Where does Caressed by Ice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've listened to the many books of this series multiple times and I still believe this book is my absolute favorite. The plot is better, the characters are great, and there are just so many things to love. Read the other two books before this so you can READ THIS. NOW.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Caressed by Ice?

    There's just something about a character that is mentally damaged by their race to have no emotion who suddenly has instincts overpower the brainwashing. Judd is such a strong silent warrior with a clear desire to be something other than he is, and Brenna brings out his humanity. I love it when he finally has a flameout and gets a few hours to do as he pleases before he has to return to the emotionless restraint.


    What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

    Angela Dawe is the perfect voice for the non-human type. She can pull off scratchy deep voices of the male wolf changelings and sound utterly devoid of emotion like the psy. She's in her element with these novels.


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

    Flameout.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a grad student with little time to read fiction let alone write reviews (which is why mine are usually in need of a proofread - there's just no time), so I have used audible as a way to get my book fix. I listen while driving, while cleaning, eating, while getting ready, pretty much any time I can snag. I've returned to this series again and again because it is my absolute favorite on this site. LOVE IT.

    "Still awesome!"

    The cover art is misleading...this book is about a changling female...and a psy male.....it was yummy yummy yummy! It only got 4 stars for repetative phrases that started to irk me, but the story itself was still really good! It was also nice to be in the wolf pack...rather than the leopard pack...nice change of pace and dynamics since every pack is different.

    Still heart warming, still thought provoking, this book was build up for what are many more to come! If you haven't started this series yet....what the heck is stoping you?

    I enjoy reading series and very rarely read stand alone series. I mostly read romance and sci-fi & fantasy.

    "He's not an iceman"
    What made the experience of listening to Caressed by Ice the most enjoyable?

    This is the first story where the main character is a psy male. It gives a different perspective to those who have defected from the net. Even though it was harder for him to break silence he did it for his mate.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Caressed by Ice?

    When Judd didn't stand up for Brenna at the cabin and she was mad at him. He had no idea that he was suppose to support her no matter what. It goes to show that even in the future that men are still as clueless to women's needs as they are now a days.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me laugh. The fact that Judd didn't know how to react to Brenna and, Brenna's brother's reactions to Judd just had me rolling around laughing till my sides hurt.

    "Loved it!"

    I love this entire series and this one in particular. It has a great mix of romance (including steamy sex scenes) and action, just as all the books in the series do. The narrator does a really good job with this one. My only complaint about Nalini Singh is that she has the weirdest chapter breaks. Rather than stopping the chapter at the end of a scene, she does it right in the middle, for no reason I can discern. But that's minor.

    "5 STAR!!"

    The series continues and keeps getting better!!! Well worth the credit and if you haven't read any from Nalini Singh - take the leap, you won't be disappointed! I liked that although this one is still linked to the continuing battle with the psy counsel, you learned more about the different changeling packs. Jed and Brenna are both stubborn and when they finally give in to each other it definitely creates fireworks in the bedroom. Love it!! I beg that you keep adding the rest of this series!!!

    "Loved it!"


    I'm on the third book and still loving this series! I've missed paranormal so much. And I so love shifters. But this series is more than just shifter books. It's a whole paranormal world that fits together and reflects much of our world. Each book has it's own focus on a couple but the overall story of this world continues. I love that there is the resolution of one piece of the story but the overarching story goes on.

    If you haven't read this series but love paranormal, what are you waiting for? I have been sucked in and thrown out my reading schedule to fit these in. That's where the audio has come in. I've been able to fit in listening as I do other things and it's perfect. I love this narrator. I can tell which character is speaking, I can see the pictures in my mind and I'm not focused on the reader. It's the highest praise I can give - she makes the story better.

    This world is made up of three races. The psy, the changelings, and the humans. There are many different kinds of psy with wide ranges of psychic powers and abilities. They have silenced their emotions as a way to do away with violence but the results have caused other issues. The changelings come in many different packs of shifters. I like that. I've always liked more than wolf shifters. This story is the first one that focused more on the wolfs. I am so interested in them. I love their alpha, Hawke and can't wait for his book. The human are there but not really part of things so far. That could change.

    This is Brenna and Judd's story. The psychically damaged Breanna was a victim in an earlier story. Still not healed, she is drawn to the emotionless Judd who helped with her recovery. But there is so much more going on for their story. Judd's ice cannot simply be melted away. And Breanna has yet to deal with the aftermath of her confinement. It's enjoyable and interesting to watch their story unfold. I was surprised and intrigued as it went along. Love it when a story doesn't go where I expect.

    The writing is so good. I'm not a third person writing kinda reader but I love this one. While the story moves all over, it's always from someones POV even if it's third person. That means I feel those connections with characters that I need so much. And because the story can flow from any character, we see things from the previous couples in the first two books and through the eyes of the killer.

    I'm excited to start the next book. I can't get enough of this world. If you haven't read this author, you need to. She's just so good.
