Brandee has been dumped in every way possible, but by text is the last straw. That's it - she's officially done with men. Unfortunately, she's just been told her "soul mate" is the drool-worthy hottie all her friends call One-Night Nick. Nick has been searching for true love for 100 years. After all, werewolves mate for life, and he does not want to mess this up. As soon as he kisses Brandee, he knows she's the one. But how will he convince a woman who knows nothing of paranormals that she's about to be bound to a werewolf forever?

"Hot sex scenes and a breezy tone with a nice, happily-ever-after ending makes Chase's story - with its interesting cast of humans, werewolves, shape-shifters, witches, wizards, and vampires - a fun listen." (Booklist)
There is nothing interesting about the characters. The female lead with her stupid sayings for cuss words makes you want to smack her with the book. The male lead, so what he's a
Warewolf who cares because the author doesn't care enough to make the plot interesting
Eve of Darkness by Sylvia Day
Not sure that the problem is two fold or if the content was just so bad that there was nothing that she could do.
It has opportunities for a good story but the author never makes anything interesting with the characters.
Sorry I wasted my token on this book.
I'm not sure exactly what I didn't like about the story. Normally this is right up my alley. The love scenes were hot but the story just didn't pull me in. I could have put the book down at any point and not finished it.
I think it lost me when there was a frustrated, grumpy Mother Nature who had a council with the other gods that watched over the paranormals with human spy's. The fact that Mother Nature looks down her nose on everyone just seemed it was trying too hard to create drama. The fact that all this is because she won't have sex because she doesn't know what she will give birth too was just a little unbelievable.
I didn't have an issue with narrator. I'm not honestly sure if it was the story or what about this one. It really looked like it should have been a good story. I'm not sure why it just didn't do it for me.
Nothing. Absolutely nothing.
It did have a happy ending. That was the best part of the book. I wish I had liked the book but I don't think I'll pick up anymore in the series. Sorry.
The characters were seriously disappointing. A heroine with lactose intolerance? Mother Nature causing a tornado in Boston out of the blue? Psychotic vampire stalkers? There was so much going on and none of it really made the story any better for having been included.
The author really needed to have a group of individuals read this and ask for *honest* opinions. Frankly, the dialog was corny although I can see where the author was trying for campy. Reading the entire novel and asking some hard questions during the editing could have saved this book. Logically, the plot had some pretty big holes. Why take Brandee's memories of the kidnapping away when you already know that she is related to the girl who was kidnapped? Duh! Of course auntie is going to mention that Brandee was there at some point in the future! Do we need heroes who are that lacking in forethought? Forced conflict between the hero and heroine shouldn't be that blatant and silly.
Yes. The last few books I bought I could barely finish. This one had a light content. It was enjoyable with humor and interesting characters. The book flowed. It was not frustrating like my last two or three. I laughed and smiled often.
It was very good for a light read. I will check out more of her books. It was a great diversion.
For a 4 or 5 star I would save that for a Jeanine Frost book with in depth characters, plot and constant humor and banter. Jeanine's romance and sex scenes were done in perfect amounts, tied with the plot.
Yes, the narrator was very good I would look for other books done by her. She made the different voices distinct. Her inflection was very good. I enjoyed her immensely.
Most the books I listen to I would not reccomend for a movie or TV series. This one would make a series.
I will try another of her books.
I bought this book thinking I should read it before I bought the dragon book but I found it wasn't necessary. I did introduce Drake but that was really all it did. And now I'm not sure I even want that book. This author did not read her own lines then ask herself, "does that sound right?" If she had done that she would have gotten the "no" answer because some of the phrases, sentences, paragraphs, events and conversations were just too stupid for words. Why the heck would you give a heroine Lactose Intolerence to the point she'd be burping, bloated and sitting on a toilet? UGH!!! After that I had a hard time getting through the rest of the book. AND every book I've ever read about wolf shifters they changed with nothing but a thought but Nick was described as having been in tremendous pain the four or five times he shifted, nothing graceful about that. This could have been a really good book but there was just too much that ruined it.I did like the secondary characters, Sadie, Anthony, and, sometimes, Angie but Ruxandra was whacked and I don't think she should ever have her own book after being in this one.
As to the narrator: She wasn't very good, except for the New York accents. Most of the time you couldn't tell if it was Nick or Brandee talking. Ms. Mallach didn't really try to change her voice to sound like a man, well, maybe the bad guys, a little, but not the main character, the hero. I don't think I would ever want to listen to her again. Sorry..
brought a laugh with all the goofy lines Brandee came up with. Clean and very cute love story
Mother Nature..... what a HOOT
I love all types of fiction; Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, SciFi, Mystery, Detective, and the occasional Romance.
This book was very enjoyable, not too heavy or angsty like some urban fantasy can be. The characters were believable and fun. The supernatural premise was unique and promises to be something the author can build on in future books in the series (because it is obvious this will be a series).
If there was one criticism, it would be that the main conflict in the book was resolved a little too easily for my taste, I think the story might have been more interesting if there was more to the resolution between the main protagonist and the main antagonist- rather than the quick fix it ended up being.
Other than that, I think it was a great initial book in the series, and I can't wait to read the next book.
I do not recommend it for anyone
The narrator was ok, but the story was just lame, no substance I compare it to a lifetime movie, cheesy and unbelievable!
The writer, give the story to a new writer to re-write. This writer has a long ways to go to reach the level of a Patrica Briggs or a Richelle Mead.
I can't believe the price on this book, and that I wasted a credit on it. You need to drop this book to the bargain bin!
"Not as good as it could have been"
Monotonous, evenly paced, relentless cheerful. The narrator sounded as if she was smiling all the time, which got a bit tedious
Thankfully, this storyline would not suit a film without major changes, which might make it rather better
Relentlessly sweet, characters laughing, giggling, smiling ALL THE TIME. Lacked any elements of major suspense or drama, and the male character had friends available with convenient powers/abilities whenever he needed them. It read rather more like a selection of linked short stories than a novel.
