    "REALLY!!??"

    First, the name under reviewer is actually my husband's name. I just wanted to make it clear that a woman is writing this review. Second, I NEVER write reviews for books but, this one I couldn't let pass. I am very thankful that I read/listened to Fantasy Lover before Night Pleasures. After reading the other reviews for this book, I decided to give it a shot anyway...some people are just natuarally negative. I should have saved my credits! My eyes rolled so much, I thought I may be permantly deformed. This is quite possibly the worst narration I've ever heard (and I've listened to 100's of books). I found myself saying "blah, blah, blah" outloud, multiple times. Which, in itself, is quite frankly insane. That just goes to show you how ridiculous the narration is. Unfortunately, it's not only the narration that bothered me. The "instant connection" between the 2 main characters is so forced, contradictory and unrealistic, I could hardly stomach it. After reading 3 chapters, I was unbelievably bored. So, I jumped forward in the series to read Acheron...I am very happy I did! Now I'm finishing this novel...but ONLY to get the backstory for subsequent novels. Not Kenyon's best work but a necessary "evil" for continuing on in the series. Holton Graham is brilliant in narrating her more recent novels in the Dark-Hunter Series. A bit nasal at times but, incredibly entertaining. Save your credits and use them for Acheron, Bad Moon Rising and Devil May Cry. I'm curious to see how Maggie-Meg Reed does with Dark Side of the Moon...

    "Night Pleasures"

    The book was so awesome but this reader completely destroyed it! When did Kyrian develop a Russian accent? If the reader wanted to add accents, try a Greek one! Otherwise, just read the book. This book is terrific all by itself and doesn't need a reader's "help" to improve it. I didn't get past chapter 5 because the reader was just so awful. If you love Shari's books like I do - don't get this. The book is just destroyed!

    My pic says it all. That's my dog and he is really barking for me to throw another snowball. Scary looks but really just a playful guy by nature. Been reading sf/fantasy like a power nerd my whole life which is almost 50 years now. I like all sorts of stuff just make the story believable...

    "SKIP THIS AWFUL BOOK"

    I love this genre and started with Charlane Harris but have also read several other authors and enjoyed them. But this one was so bad, the heroin is a bimbo idiot and the hero is a paper thin character with nothing to him but abs. The performer makes the heroin into suchs a ditz that I started picturing her as a clueless stripper. The book also has endless amounts of sex and supposed fire between the two leads but it is so boring and redundant that I wondered if the author had ever had sex in her life. Pick any book but this one and save yourself the time and money. I bailed after about an hour. In traffic no less. I was kind of facinated that while being bored out of my mind I was also constantly rolling my eyes.

    "Give us more "Hunter" books!"

    This is my favorite fantasy/romance series. I have read all of Sherrilyn Kenyon's "Hunter" books and I was thrilled to find some of the earlier books (that made me a devoted fan of hers) on Audio. If you like this genre don't hesitate. You won't be sorry. Pretty soon you will be collecting all of the "Hunter" books you can find.

    "Oh My Gosh"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator! She is horrible and her voice is so annoying there is no way I will be listenting to this book and this is just the beginning. This narrotor doesn't know the difference between a Louisiana accent 'creole' and a southern belle 'naselly voice'.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The story line appears to be great but i can't get past that narrators voice.


    What didn’t you like about Carrington MacDuffie’s performance?

    YIKES


    Could you see Night Pleasures being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Maybe


    Any additional comments?

    Need to be able to change narrators.

    "An Interesting Twist to the Vampire Story"

    BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front) - This book was a "good" listen, and had some interesting twists, but never really hooked me to the point where I had to listen to it everywhere I went to see what was going to happen next.

    Plot: The baseline plot of this book (and I presume the series) is a love story, between you guessed it a human female and a vampire. The difference is there is an element of greek mythology and other god-like beings that round out the fight against good and evil. There was a good balance between love story and the good vs evil and the author did a good job of bringing it all together at the end.

    Narrator: Pretty Bad! Not bad enough that I couldn't finish but I'm pretty sure I would have liked the book (and perhaps rated it higher) if there was a different reader. I found the readers voice to be pitchy and down right painful to my ears when she'd change voices for different characters. The book is set in New Orleans and her awful attempt at accents and male voices made it difficult to listen to. I liked the plot enough to make it through the whole book and even though Ms. MacDuffie reads the second book I'll listen to it in order to get to the 3rd and 4th where they change narrators!!!

    "Not my cup of tea"

    Wow...I did not like this book. A friend recommended this book to me and maybe it is better on the printed page, but I did not like the audio version. The narrator was slow and I kept wanting to try to drag the words out of her mouth. Also, the content of the book was just trashy. I am all for a good romance and enjoy urban fantasy, but this was just sex. Not a great plot. No character building. Just characters constantly panting for each other.

    "Great Book- Horrible Narrator"

    I've read the entire Dark Hunter series and highly enjoyed all of them. I thought it might be nice to be able to listen to some of them while I'm on the road or working around the house. Although this is one of my favorite books in the entire series, I couldn't get more than a 15 minutes into the book. The narrator was HORRIBLE! If you're really picky about narrators, I highly don't recommend this one. Read the books, but this narrator was painful to listen to.

    "Where is the plot?"

    I thought this was going to be a book about vampires, the supernatural or something interesting. Instead for the first 2 hours there is 5 minutes of actual plot and the rest is the two leads describing in obsessive detail how hot they are for each other. Repeatedly. Was Sherrilyn Kenyon being paid by the word?
