    "Great listen"

    There are parts that are frustrating. Like the back and forth with this story's love interest. It just goes on and on. I still really enjoyed the book. I really get into the other story lines and even though they aren't always wrapped up at the end. They are the reason I must read/listen to the next one. The narrator is very good and plays a big part in how much I enjoy these books.

    "Beautiful Story of Brotherhood"

    This story is more than boy meets girl. Z and Fury make a great story also. I loved this and would listen a second time.

    "Love It !!!!"
    Would you listen to Lover Awakened again? Why?

    Yes, I have read the series previously and this is my first time listening to it in audible and it was fantastic!! Listening brings the characters to true life, the narrator is great!!


    What about Jim Frangione’s performance did you like?

    Love, Love, Love it!!! Great narration that brings the story and its characters to true form.

    "Great Romance"

    Loved the book! Good story and I liked how the author built up to the romance scenes. The tension adds to the passion between the characters. Not too fond of the narrator. He doesn't always differentiate between the characters which makes him hard to follow at times. It seems like he's just not into what he is reading. Strongly considering buying the printed version so that I don't have to hear his voice. I just don't think that he is suited to this genre.

    Story
    "BDB Rocks in any format!"

    First off I have all of these books in hardback, kindle and now audible. I love the series anyway I can get it so this is really biased. The narration does the book justice and was good. If you love 50 shades with a paranormal kick butt bite with true grit this is something you might wanna try but can be addictive. Don't say I didn't warn you.

    Love strong female characters, like twists and unpredictable story line. Love it steamy. Recent favorites; Game of Thrones, Divergent...

    Story
    "Love how the tradition to "nice guy, lover" works!"

    Narrator's voice does not really match the "slang" in the story. Sometimes appears awkward. Use of some terms are already. Story did provide the emotional ride I was hoping for.

    "Oh My Goodness......"

    This book is my absolute favorite so far in this series!! I cried, laughed, and could not stop listening! I cannot believe the events that unraveled in this book. I am soooo hooked on this series, but I do not know if another book in this series can compare! I have already downloaded the next in the series!!!
