Consumed | [Skyla Madi]

Consumed

He's infuriating, nauseatingly addictive and she just can't seem to shake him. He's only been in town a short while and his name is already on everyone's lips. He's the kind of guy moms' warn their daughters about - the kind that leaves a trail of shattered hearts behind him and he has Olivia in his sights. Olivia has never met anyone as confusing as Seth and his hot and cold attitude constantly sends her reeling. She's never wanted anyone's touch so badly in her life, but having recently come out of a long term relationship diving into another is something she'd prefer to avoid.

    Story
    "Sexy Bad boy MMA fighter meets sweet good girl "

    If you’re into books with steam, romance and bad boy MMA fighters… you’ll definitely like this one! The story begins with Olivia finally kicking her loser, cheating long time boyfriend to the curb. She decides to swear of men but it doesn't last long. She goes to her dad's gym and finds herself suddenly enthralled by a man oozing sex appeal. This man is a hot MMA fighter working his way towards becoming pro. They have insta attraction but Seth makes it known from the beginning that he doesn't do relationships. However, he is drawn to this sweet good girl and can't stay away. Seth is still hesitant to commit to Olivia but you watch his feelings gradually start changing. Seth & Olivia were super HOT together. I loved the sexy times and the fight scenes. Seth was definitely a swoon worthy bad boy turned one woman lovin’ sex god. You can't help but fall in love with him. I would have liked to learn more about his dark past. Perhaps that will be explored further in the sequel. All in all, I enjoyed Consumed. It was relatively low on the angst which was appreciated. Instead the focus was on Seth and Olivia's relationship growing into something beautiful in the midst of change, heart-ache and tragedy. This book is told completely from Olivia's POV with the exception of the Epilogue. I'm looking forward to the next book once Audible makes it available.

    I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!

    Story
    "Good except for the Narrator"

    This is a familiar story - very alpha male with feisty heroine. Why choose this one over all the other available? I'll give you three reasons:

    (1) the most important one, author knows how to write a good story and the characters stand out despite them being the same "types" as a lot of other books;
    (2) the book was worth time and money spent reading it; and
    (3) the relationship was hot.

    Another huge plus is that although it is the first in a series (with the second book due in December 2013); happily, this book is a stand alone story with no cliff hanger ending. There are some minor editing issues but nothing to ruin the story.

    Having said that the narrator ruined the book for me. I agree with Tammy comments below.

    EM Eldridge, did not put her soul into this book. She did not keep my interest at all. She reads so fast it seamed like is was on high speed and very mono-toned. No expression at all. I don't think I can listen to another book she narrates.

    Story
    "Unexpected Awesomeness!!!"

    Wow... I was this close (snap finger) from stopping this book and calling it quits right around chapter 3... BUT I am so glad I didn't... This was an unexpected awesome book!

    This story started out so teenager(y)... I wasn't sure if I got this from the romance section or not... but I have to admit, after O dumped her boyfriend Blade or Blake... (can't remember) and Seth makes an appearance...everywhere...the story really picks up...

    There were some of the hottest smex scenes I have listen/read to in a long long while... The teasing on the couch; right before Seth's fight, and the BATHTUB!!! OMG!!! Gush, Gush....

    Then the the bar fight...I was screaming NO NO NO.... and I so wanted to B* slap O, but then... Sethy!!!!

    This story changed pace so quickly, I almost had whiplash... Seth was soooo... intense from pushing O away, to literally consuming her life... I loved it...With his family drama, then OMG... the ending...(big o'l tear drop...drip...drip...drip) I just about died the last couple of chapters... I was shocked... and sad, then happy...then content... So many emotions...

    Great, Great book... well worth the credit or sale... I try not to buy anything over 10 bucks...so, yes it's worth the wait for a credit or sale...but MAN O MAN..what an awesome MMA romance...Love me some fighter boys...

    Narration was great... nice shift in voices and nice reading pace...

    Totally consumed me!!!

    Story
    "Should have had a different narrator."
    What did you love best about Consumed?

    The story line was great. I am going to read now and I'm betting I will enjoy much better.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Not one.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    EM Eldridge, did not put her soul into this book. She did not keep my interest at all. She reads so fast it seamed like is was on high speed and very monatoned. No expression at all. I will not listen to another book she narrates.


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

    Hard to tell.


    Any additional comments?

    I think we should be able to get a sample of the book just to hear the narrator.

    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.

    "Good"

    This is somewhat along the lines of "THE REAL SERIES" but nowhere as good. I will say if you enjoyed that series you will like this one. The characters are interesting and very enjoyable. Ok who doesn't enjoy a hot fighter if the story is good??????

    "Truly Consumed"
    Would you listen to Consumed again? Why?

    I would love to listen to this book again. The story line was great. The characters were fun, interesting and sizzled! I loved the interaction between Olivia and Seth.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Consumed?

    I loved the way that Seth's character slowly opened up to Olivia. The way that she was able to prove to him that he was a wonderful guy and truly gave more then he ever expected to get back.


    What about Em Eldridge’s performance did you like?

    Loved it! She made the characters come to life!

    I was completely taken in by the story and very much enjoyed the narration. I found myself cleaning extra just so I could keep my ear buds in and finish the book.

    "I WAS CONSUMED BY THIS AWESOME LISTEN"

    I wasn't sure what to expect from this book as I hadn't listened to anything about MMA before but I love bad boys and couple that with the cover (I know I know shrug but what can I say) so I thought I'd give it a try. Well, Wow and Wow this beautiful slow building love story just blew me away and I listened to it unwilling to acknowledge that there was actually a 'pause' button.

    Olivia's a beautiful strong willed good girl who's been beaten down by a 6 year relationship with her cheating (now ex) boyfriend and swears off men - that is until she's in her Father's Gym and slowly gazes over dark shorts then sweaty muscles, abs, tattoos, dark eyes and eventually looks into an all knowing, handsome, smiling face.... Seth (sigh where's my fan). He's a cocky, sexy, handsome, love em them leave em bad boy MMA fighter who's spoiled, stubborn and selfish but he meets Olivia's drooling gaze followed by her bright pink flush and he smiles.

    This book, apart from the Epilogue, is told entirely from Olivia's POV there's instant attraction and sizzling sexual chemistry but Seth holds back.... but for how long? A jealous ex boyfriend, her boss, a very angry fellow fighter, and her best friend all stir the plot up along with her Mother, his closed off family issues and his denials don't make for a good start. But when they overcome their issues, share secrets and learn to trust each other it makes for a very touching, tender and romantic bond and very sexy too.

    There's stress as Seth's jealous, possessive and is all consuming over Olivia as he learns to cope with the changes brought about by his new found feelings, there's an emotional heartache too, an annoying best friend, other likeable secondary characters, a secondary love/sex affair, various tense fights and, of course, their romance that must endure all in order to reach the HEA ending we crave so much.

    Worth a credit? This is Part 1 of a trilogy about the couple's love and life and I'm gladly, willingly and eagerly going to use my credits on them, so I think you know what my answer is going to be - yup you've guessed it.... YES, YES and YES again.
