Publisher's Summary

Since time began, there have been Nightwalkers - the races of the night who live in the shadows of the moonlight. Love with humans is absolutely forbidden, and one man makes certain to uphold this ancient law: Jacob, the Enforcer.

For 700 years, he has resisted temptation. But not tonight... Jacob knows the excuses his people give when the madness overtakes them and they fall prey to their lust for humans. He's heard every one and still brought the trespassers to justice. Immune to forbidden desires, uncontrollable hungers, or the curse of the moon, his control is total... until the moment he sees Isabella on a shadowy New York City street. Saving her life wasn't in his plans. Nor were the overwhelming feelings she arouses in him. But the moment he holds her in his arms and feels the soft explosion of her body against his, everything changes. Their attraction is undeniable, volatile, and completely against the law. Suddenly everything Jacob has ever believed is inflamed by the heat of desire. Bring on the night.

    "Goood story EXCELLENT Narrator"

    The story is good, with witty dialogue and some action. Like others have said, it contains a bit too much romance for this genre, but still a good read. What makes the story GREAT is the narrator. Xe Sands is amazing! She created an entire production crew out of her own voice. She literally brings the story to life. I have to highly recommend this book because no one should miss ANY of Xe Sands' narrations. What a talent!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Jacob to be better than the print version?

    All I can say is that I could not wait until I read the next series...

    Story
    "oh, d*mn! I might need a cold shower."

    I was not expecting a really detailed story-line or even really well-developed characters - but I got at least part of a good package from this book. It was more than steamy in several parts and while I was skeptical about the narrator initially (due to her almost whispery/sultry tones), it added a lot to the chemistry between the main characters. I also thought the main characters were decently filled out, but was somewhat disappointed with some of the secondary characters' development and motivation - and felt let down by the 2-D quality of the villains.
    If you're just looking for something light and yummy - it's definitely worth the listen. And maybe a re-listen.

    "Don't waste your time"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better narrator, a more likable heroine.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jacquelyn Frank again?

    No


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different Narrator. So boring to listen to her!


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

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    Narrator sounds like she has a jawbreaker in her mouth. She is so boring to listen to. Bella comes off as irritating, ditzy and too naive to like.

    "Can't wait to listen to the rest of the series~"

    I loved this love story and can't wait to listen to the rest of the series! I don't know if I would have stuck with the book if I had read it. For me a little slow in the beginning, but I truly love the characters.

    Story
    "Hope the other books in this series are this good!"
    If you could sum up Jacob in three words, what would they be?

    Sexy, enthralling and captivating.


    What other book might you compare Jacob to and why?

    I have all of Charlaine Harris' books (Sookie, Lilly Bard, Aurora Teagarden and Harper Connelly) and, I can't believe I'm saying this, I think I like this book better.


    What does Xe Sands bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The first time I listened to the book, I thought the narration was terrible. I had to listen a 2nd time because I kept falling asleep. The 2nd time, I enjoyed listening to the husky accents she gives the demons. I just finished listening a third time and have decided it's time to get the 2nd book in the series, Gideon.

    Any additional comments?

    I have read this book, and listened to this recording on a couple of driving trips. It brought a new perspective to the story, hearing someone voice their interpretation of characters' voices!! Not necessarily what I had imagined in my head, and it made the story fresh.

    "This is an awesome Adult Series!!!"

    I was looking for a new series, I was tired of all the young adult books. After several duds I finally found this GREAT series! It is dark, seductive & keeps you on the edge of your seat. You can't wait to see what will happen between Jacob & Isabella. I can't wait to read the next book!!!
