"Erotic paranormals are ... frighteningly addictive." (Publisher's Weekly)
I am audio book addicted. Lets me do two things at once, multi-tasking to the inth degree. Love series, and hot and spicy books best.
Great Series, Great Narration.
I really did not like Furys book the first time. I read it in hardback as this did not exist then. He came across as whiney and "oh woah is me".
The second time thru I listened to it. I really listened, and paid closer attention to Furys story and really got A LOT more out of the back story I dont understand drug addiction, but I believe that I have a food addiction, so I related more this time to his "escape". I felt really bad for him and his life and how his parents felt toward him. Cormia was so very healing for him and helped him with the one day at a time stuff and I felt so happy for him this time. He came across as more tortured and in pain, so I got it so much better and it helped me relate to the entire story. Z really knew no other life, so he did not know that he "needed" rescued, and Fury wanted a thanks and envied Z his woman and baby on the way, Fury gave up his younger life to search for and rescue Z, he made the choice and should not have been so jealous, but that is the way of it. That part of this story really moved me.
Man, I love this series, they feel like family. I hate that it takes so long until the next installment, then I devour it way too fast.
You cant go wrong with this series by cash or credit.
Geez this series is incredible. Just can stop listening. Jim Frangione does an excellent job narrating too. You will enjoy this series. Start from the beginning though or you will miss so much. Worth my dollars as I am out of credits.
Yes yes yes. I love these books they just keep you wanting more. Not a boring moment
None. This book was different in a lot of ways!!!
Omg they all were. I love him
It is in the top ten. I enjoyed reading this book.
The right couples got together; old, antiquated laws were changed.
Cormia and John Matthew watching 'Dirty Dancing' in the theater room; Cormia fantasizing it was she and Vischous.
Destiny wins all.
Incredible world developed for our enjoyment. Ward is a wizard; she knows just how to push the buttons of her audience. Awesome story line and character development, you really feel a part of the action. Lovely fantasy opportunities.
I enjoy the Performance of the Reader. He makes it interesting and relatable.
I am reading the series and they all end with questions.
Yes because all the books in the series are phenomenally written! Ward is an awesome writer.
Sarcastic, angry, rich
Reactions were all extreme. I felt like I was in the story, experiencing feelings and situations.
I wish that Jim Franglone would read a chapter to himself first and then record it so that he doesn't do things like reading a phrase in a harsh voice followed by;'She whispered'. It just makes my mind rewind and reread the voice mentally to make it fit. He has a great voice and I guess his best theatrical voice comes out when he reads:
This book is my least favorite of "The Black Dagger Brotherhood" so far. Phury's character was apparently something that was not evident to the reader for the first five books. I feel as though the author changed who he was just for the purposes of this book.
Additionally, when writing about Mr. D., the author uses slang country talk when speaking in the third person. For example (and this is made up), "Mr. D knew he ain't got no opportunity like this before." This is awful writing. Since it's not Mr. D.'s speech, or his his thoughts, it shouldn't be written in hillbilly speech. Also, at some point during the book, Mr. D. started speaking like Ms. Daisy's driver.
If the writing surrounding Mr. D. was better, and if there was foreshadowing of Phury's character, the book would have been much better.
I also felt there was less of the brotherhood in this volume, and I missed them.
