Love in vein: listen to another Dark-Hunter novel.

"If you love Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Angel, then boy, is this the book for you...original and complex...the characters are unforgettable and the action thrilling." (Romantic Times)
Not a bad book. Not very thought provoking, but I would say it was worth the credit. Male protagonist was definetely more enjoyable than the female character as she could be a bit annoying and (once again...yawn)her own worst enemy. Why is it that a strong woman must always be portrayed as stupid? She must always barrel a pathway into danger (which of course she never saw coming even though she is sooo intelligent) only to be rescued by the sexually enticing male lead who saves her at the last moment and they both awaken to realize that they were always meant for each other. Sound familiar? Well, there's the book.
I enjoyed the book but found I couldn't stand the way the narrator did Amanda's voice. And Kyrian's accent was horrible. I recommend listening to all the books read by Holter Graham and Fred Berman and get the paperbacks for all the rest.
This book, was quite trite. Although I can put up with that, the narrator has definitely made me quit listening to this series. A southern accent doesn't have to sound breathless constantly. It could have been good . . .
Predictable storyline...I can live with that. But Amanda's cheesy southern drawl made me laugh out loud...to the point it distracted me from the story. It made her sound like a complete idiot who stumbled on the means to save her lover.....can't blame her for that...those sex scenes were hot! Overall, should be listed as a comedy.
I really liked the book, but I was sad to find out after I had listened to the book that it is not the first book in the series. The first book is call: Fantasy Lover, and it's about Julian of Macedon and Grace. But I don't think Audible has this book. I just wanted to warn you all. Night Pleasures is a great book and I highly recommend it, I just wish Audible had Fantasy Lover as well.
Am a fan of Laurell K Hamilton and Sherrily Kenyon was recommneded for Hamilton fans. Now I'm really into it and I like the fact that each Dark Hunter book focusses on a new Dark Hunter, so avoids repetition. Narrator also a did a bang-up job of making me fall in love with the characters.
I read this book a couple years ago and really got into the characters, story and all the nuances of the hurts, pains, pleasure, passion and more. When I saw that Ms. Carrington MacDuffie was the narrator I knew I had to listen to it and I was well rewarded! I have recently discovered Ms. MacDuffie and find that she knows when something should be "dry", "whispered" or otherwise instead of just reading like an automaton therefore doing very well by the characters and their story; unlike some other narrations. I hope Ms. Kenyon is as pleased with her narration of Night Pleasures as I am. Ms. Kenyon has such savvy and wit in her writings and to have it live on in the narration is a true and simple pleasure to enjoy. I was so sorry to have it end. I only wish Ms. MacDuffie would have read Fantasy Lover also by Ms. Kenyon. That would have been a true treat with all its warmth and humor. I truly hope you find the enjoyment of this audible.com book as I have.
I absolutely loved this book. Sherrilyn Kenyon is fantanstic and the the narriator did a wonderful job too...I was sorry to see it end! If you need a book to laugh with, cry with, and just simply enjoy, then this book is for you!
I'll be purchasing more Dark-Hunter audio books in the future.
much like soft core porn for women. Too many references to the men's privates and how they feel against other body parts. Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy a sexy book from the woman's viewpoint, but this gave me the "gay" creeps. I kept trying to fast forward some of the action. the ending was also fairly predictable.
I read so I can write
I have had this book for 5 months and have tried 3 different times to listen to it. I quit after 20 minutes the first time, got to 1 hour the second time and made it with great struggle to 2 hours this last time. What a waste of time. I usually have something nice to say even about books I don't especially like, but this one I just can't.
