    "The End is Never the End"

    First, I would highly recommend you read the first two books of this series before you start with this book. There is a lot of reference to previous characters, scenes, and plots that took place in the first two books of this series, plus they are just fantastic reads as well.

    This book tied it up the story so nicely for me. It wasn’t a pretty relationship that came together and everything fit like a puzzle. Their story was heartbreaking and warming and ugly and real. Hauk and Jolie had to fight for their relationship with the world and themselves. Jolie had to learn to trust in someone besides herself and Hauk had to learn to let someone love him for him. From the moment I started listening to this story until the end, I was right there with them. Every twist and turn, had my tuning out the world to follow their story. I love Hauk. I wish a guy like him was in my future. He is brave, loyal, generous, very passionate and full of life, despite the events that have happened in his life. Jolie is beautiful, smart, sass and courageous. She is beauty and smarts in a package deal. I will not give too much of the plot away but I will say that I cried.

    "Bueno!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, but I would recommend to read/listen to the other two books first. This book ties it all together, the first two are "action" "adventure" and "flirting" packed, this was more cheesy romance. I really liked that the author used 3 books to tell us the story, instead of rushing things in one book. Good job!


    What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

    I like her sexy voice! LOL


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

    I blushed a lot, since I was listening to this while driving. I also cried a little bit towards the end. I was also a bit frustrated (stubborn Hawk!).

    "Lived up to the first book!"

    Nice! I am curious as to why Hawk's and Jolie's team only has one warrior plus Jolie. Hummmmm that part doesn't make sense. I think if you at least had a few more warriors it would add more depth as well as more action. It is not really realistic that you have what is supposedly a war and the other side has an army and Jolie and Hawk only have 2 warriors. Huh?

    But, other than that bit of unrealisticness the story is still good and I am ready to listen to the 3rd book! :)

    "A Guilty Pleasure!"

    Hauk and Jolie are my favourite couple so far in 2013, this retelling of Beauty and the Beast had me grinning from ear to ear, there's humour, angst, determination until you get a culmination of events were you are not quite sure whether they will get over the impossible odds.
    Both the lead stars are real characters with an edge that kept me listening, I loved it. Paranormal Romance is a guilty pleasure of mine, there is so much dross out there and here is a series that has put my faith back in the genre..bravo.
    I must add that Therese Plummer caught Jolies character perfectly which added to my enjoyment.
