Conversion | [S. C. Stephens]

Conversion

Emma is content. She's got a promising career in front of her, great friends, and a pretty amazing family. But her love life has been a little lacking lately. That's when fate steps in, and she crashes into a tall, dark, and handsome man - Teren Adams. He’s single, successful, an extraordinary gentleman, but he’s also secretive. And some of his secrets are more unusual than most people’s. For instance, he’s a "little bit" vampire. He has fangs, incredible hearing, unbelievable speed, and, on occasion, he enjoys drinking a steaming cup of blood. But he’s also very much alive.

Publisher's Summary

Emma is content. She's got a promising career in front of her, great friends, and a pretty amazing family. But her love life has been a little lacking lately. That's when fate steps in, and she crashes into a tall, dark, and handsome man - Teren Adams. He’s single, successful, an extraordinary gentleman, but he’s also secretive. And some of his secrets are more unusual than most people’s. For instance, he’s a "little bit" vampire. He has fangs, incredible hearing, unbelievable speed, and, on occasion, he enjoys drinking a steaming cup of blood. But he’s also very much alive. He has a heartbeat, loves steak as well as cappuccinos, and has no problems walking around during the day. Since Teren acts human the majority of the time, the pros far outweigh the cons in Emma’s book. But when it becomes apparent that Teren’s condition is much more serious than he first lets on, and that being in a relationship with him requires more sacrifices than most would be willing to make, will Emma stay? Is love enough to compensate for a life that will never be anywhere near normal? But then again...what's normal anyway?

    "No,just no."
    Would you try another book from S. C. Stephens and/or Piper Goodeve?

    Probably not. I can't decide if it's the book or the narrator.


    What could S. C. Stephens have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Characters seem immature


    How could the performance have been better?

    Difficult to distinguish male voice from female


    Any additional comments?

    Hope to get my credit back to use on something better.

    "Interesting...that's why I kept reading...."

    This book was very interesting. I like to see how an author views their vampire world. They are all different, and I love to see what each type of vamp can do in each series. So I was interested with this one because he is a half vamp. That was a new one to me.
    It was sort of boring in the beginning, but I kept on going because I love this author from her series Thoughtless. The author was actually the reason why I even gave this book a shot.
    In the end, I would say again that it was interesting. It could have been a little "dirtier" for my taste, but I'll read the next book to see what happens.

    Overall: Use a credit if you've got one :)

    Any additional comments?

    I love the way the book started out but I admit; I could not finish it. The book could have been condensed by at least a third without loosing anything from the story and I felt the character spent to much time fretting and creating problems that weren't there. Some good concepts but to much padding!

    "I'm Converted"

    Look, this is a terrific audio book IF you are into vamps. It's clever, creative, fun, funny, emotional, witty, dramatic, scary and downright interesting. It's got a new take on the vampire world (at least to me) and the performance by Piper Goodeve is nothing short of spectacular. Acting as the sole narrator, she captures all the characters (and there are some doozies) as well as giving validity, substance and believability to the two leads (Teren and Emma). I was not a fan of Ms Stephen's Thoughtless series and did not even attempt to read beyond that first book. So I approached this series with trepidation...but it's gotten good reviews and I LOVE Ms Goodeve's narrative/performance talent. So, I dove in and am glad of it. About to start Bloodlines (book 2). I will not go into the substance/story line of the book as I'd probably spoil it AND you can read that for yourself in any synopsis. What you get from me is how much I ENJOYED this audio book and why.

    "Pretty good. Slow at first."

    It took a loooooong time to get to the end where the story finally picked up the pace. Everything was described in detail, which wasn't annoying, but just time consuming. I think this book would have been just as good if it were shorter. All in all, an interesting read.

    "Vampires Love Too!"

    I enjoyed the book! S. C. Stephens is an outstanding writer. She made me care about the characters. The lovers are so sweet and perfect for each other. This is my second time listening to the book. I have the series and love each book!

    "A fantastically original vampire novel!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Ye, I would totally recommend this audiobook to a friend. Narrator, Piper Goodeve really animates the dense narrative of Emma and Teren's love story. I'm not sure if I would have loved it quite as much if I had read the e-book format especially since SC Stephens is a new-to-me author.


    What other book might you compare Conversion to and why?

    The Twilight series, the Black Dagger Brotherhood series and The Drake Chronicles because they are all feature unique vampire mythology.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Emma's planned birthday surprise for Teren scene was my favorite because it was so funny and cute. I liked when Teren asked her what that distracting noise was and confirmed that he knew all of her body's digestive noises. Her ire over that was hilarious!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Dating a vampire isn't normal, but what's normal anyway?


    Any additional comments?

    I buddy read this one with my book buddy, Faye. I'm looking forward to starting BLOODLINES on audiobook as soon as she's ready to start it.

    I knew I was purchasing a book where I loved the author and the narrator both. How happy was I that it all clicked and made for a fantastical listening experience. Young vampire love done right.

    "Poor Narrator"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The overall story was not bad as far as vampire lore goes, but it was defiantly not the worst. The narrator was the worst part by far. For some reason I just could not get past her breathy whiney voice, it didn't help that this what not the strong female character that I amused to.


    Would you recommend Conversion to your friends? Why or why not?

    If you are in between your favorite series releases, as I was, it was a decent way to kill the time and get my vampire fix.

    "S.C. Stephens... are you sure?"
    Would you try another book from S. C. Stephens and/or Piper Goodeve?

    This doesn't seem like the same writer that wrote the amazing story of Kiera and Kellan. I was extremely disappointed. Its as if she found it necessary to drink the vampire koolaid long after the appeal dissolved.


    Would you ever listen to anything by S. C. Stephens again?

    I can't be sure at this point.


    What three words best describe Piper Goodeve’s voice?

    Reader was okay


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Just disappointed, I couldnt even finish it.
