Colters' Woman: Colter's Legacy, Book 1 | [Maya Banks]

Colters' Woman: Colter's Legacy, Book 1

Adam, Ethan, and Ryan aren't looking for women. They're looking for a woman. One woman they know will share their lives and their beds. They're losing hope they'll find her, that is until Adam discovers Holly lying in the snow just yards from their cabin. Adam knows she's the one the minute he holds her in his arms, and as soon as his brothers see her, they know it too. The only problem is convincing Holly of that fact - and protecting her from the danger of her past.

    I love to read. I love all genres but romance in particular. The hotter and steamy and sexier book is the more I want to read it.

    "A bit of a stretch, but super delicious & HOT!!"

    Hands down Maya Banks can write some steamy love scenes, that was the best thing about this book. I don't really have a least favorite thing because my expectations weren't super high for a storyline that was this unrealistic but under the guise of taking place in modern times. I surely wouldn't mind being the woman in this, i'm just saying, wow does it sound nice to hook up with three totally sexy, committed, AND good looking men!?!?! If you want a cute and hot hot H-O-T book to listen to, this is it.

    "What if it were 3 sisters!!!!!!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    considering the content it really wasn't that bad. The story had some interest and the dynamics of the brothers was sort of interesting. If you're not offended by kinky fu@#$ery you may want to give it a try.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Colters' Woman?

    Of course near the end.....can't say too much without giving it away....


    Have you listened to any of Freddie Bates’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't think I have heard him before...he did a good job with all the male voices and the female as well. The brothers were distinguishable which is the most important part of the story. I could picture each one in my mind.


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

    No extreme reactions.

    Ardent reader of history, non-fiction, fiction, fantasy, sci-fi. Have a lot of audiobooks, but in all honesty, I prefer to read rather than listen. However, my daily hourly walk has become a pleasure with a good audiobook to listen to.

    "Snow White and Princes x 3 Charming"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Its not my thing, and I dont think my friends would enjoy this stuff either, so I dont think Id recommend it, other than to bring the title up if we were broadly discussing the subject or the various writings of porn thats out there. I like to listen to or read books that teach me something or make me wonder or think about life in general. Ive read a few good romance with novels that do just that, and was curious enough to dive into this one. This book .... well. All I learnt was that an unconscious woman, a young virgin at that, all of a sudden can become hot property desired by 3 brothers (and in my innate curiosity about humans and things in general, I cant help but wonder ... does/could this really happen!? Can you imagine!? Heck, I cant. How could this possibly work out?!) without her even knowing about it at the time. This to me seems like a confabulated pornographic tale of Snow White with Prince Charming, only here she has THREE of the Charming Princes! All brothers. The whole premise made me feel a little uncomfortable, I must say. Apparently the story goes on in a further book in a storyline which makes me feel even more uncomfortable - she has their kids and they all live happily ever after. Really, what twaddle. For me personally, I just dont gel with this kind of writing. Im not anti-erotica or against stories with a sexual theme, but this book is just plain ridiculous. (IMHO). This is not romance, its porn, plain and simple, and I feel this *entire* series should be listed under the erotica section, not romance.


    What was most disappointing about Maya Banks’s story?

    Its a dumb story. Just plain weird setup all round.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Not one!


    Any additional comments?

    If that one guy said 'Im/we're not going to hurt you' one more time, I swear I was going to spit a spider. Aside from the boring repetition, I mean, its hardly a healthy situation that he wants this woman to be in, and I would say okay, so its not physical hurt, but what about emotional etc? And one very positive thing .. I found the narrator did a sterling job reading this. He handled everything and the entire subject matter with great aplomb. Well done!

    Story
    "A much better read than listen!"

    I read Maya Banks' Colters' series some time ago and greatly enjoyed it. If you read many 'poly' stories, you will note that the majority fall into either the full on erotica (smut) category or erotica with a plot. I would categorize the Colters' stories as falling into the latter category-for the most part and would fully admit to having enjoyed the series.

    If your feminist side absolutely cringes at the damsel in distress being saved by the alpha male(s) in a story, don't bother reading this title or any others in the series. I believe that whatever a person's views are on the matter are their own, and shouldn't be inflicted upon those that feel differently. I simply point it out so that there is no confusion before purchasing and/or reason for complaint thereafter.

    The Colter brothers, like their fathers before them, believe that there is one woman out there who is meant to be theirs and that they will know it when they find her. They find her, half frozen, outside of their home, during a snow storm.

    The plot is predictable but enjoyable. The narration greatly detracts from the story and makes it somehow 'less' than the experience of reading the title. If you read any of my other reviews, you will see that I have a real issue with poor narration and the lack of proper editing or production guidance. As an example, Holly is from the west coast, yet because the lead males in the story live on a ranch and ride horses, the narrator gave her a cheesy, country accent. The accent he landed on the guys wasn't much better. I wasn't aware that Colorado cowboys automatically gained a bad west Texas accent just because they landed their butts in a saddle but at least that inflection made sense. His narration actually does make Holly irritating and pathetic, which is a feeling I did not get when I read the story beforehand. It's actually such a detractor in this case that I would almost recommend reading this title instead of listening.

    An extended epilogue is available for download (free I believe on Amazon) as an e-book. The title is 'Colters' Wife' and it picks up a few months after the end of 'Colters' Woman.' The next title in the series is 'Colters' Lady' and I believe that it is now or soon will be available on Audible. It involves, you guessed it, the three sons of Holly, Adam, Ethan and Ryan. I have not checked to see if it is the same narrator on the next book but, if it is, hopefully someone has provided some direction this time.

    "holy crap!"

    well this is a first for me. if you like a book with lots of really hot sex in it then this book will do it for you, just understand that the sex is with 3 partners at once! i was a bit shocked and mildly uncomfortable with it through out the entire book but the story that went along with it was good so i finished it. It's the first book in "Colter's Legacy so admittedly i'm now curious as to what is next?
    The narration was fine.

    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.

    Not my favorite of Maya's. It's a nice fantasy though. Who wouldn't want to be totally loved by three sexy men and you'd be the only woman they'd ever want? I also liked the touch of danger added in the storyline. It was a OK listen for me. It wasn't as good as her Sweet Series.

    This is the spiciest book I have ever listened to....I agree with everyone else that the story is not realistic however it is very good. There is suspense and fun. It is also very very naughty! If thought of multiple partners bothers you skip this book.

    Read at least two books a week... like Faulkner and Hemmingway and books that have spiritual outreach like Eat, Pray and Love. I have read most of James Lee Burk's books. My favorite narrator is Will Patton. He did an incredable job with Charles Fraziers Cold Mountain and 13 Moons and James Dickey's "Deliverance"
