Publisher's Summary

Vampire bachelor Samson can't get it up anymore. Not even his shrink can help him. That changes when the lovely mortal auditor Delilah tumbles into his arms after a seemingly random attack. Suddenly there's nothing wrong with his hydraulics - that is, as long as Delilah is the woman in his arms.

His scruples about taking Delilah to bed vanish when his shrink suggests it's the only way to cure his problem. Thinking all he needs is one night with her, Samson indulges in a night of pleasure and passion.

However, another attack on Delilah and a dead body later, and Samson has his hands full: not only with trying to hide the fact he's a vampire, but also with finding out what secrets Delilah harbors for somebody to want her harm.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "Good"
    Would you try another book from Tina Folsom and/or Kevin Foley?

    Yes, it was good.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Tina Folsom? Why or why not?

    I enjoyed it even if its predictable. I'll be willing to try others because it kept my attention.


    Any additional comments?

    I would not use a credit, but I got it cheap, so I won't complain. It didn't sweep me away but it was interesting. For a light, predictable listen at a good price you can't beat it.

    "Story was just so-so"

    If you are looking for a fluff vampire story then this one should do it....I personally have been spoiled by the black dagger brotherhood, guild hunter, psy changeling and the Midnight breed series...so this one was...'eh...too much fluff not enough intrigue.

    The background was simple enough, lonely rich vampire has been betrayed time and time again because women just wanted him for his money...classic story. Then the book went really wonky because these vampires live just like humans, except the sun burns them so they operate at night. But the lead vamp in this book actually goes to a shrink because after the last betrayal by a woman he had ED and Viagra doesn't work on vamps....the story line really takes you out of the mystical vampire world and into the normal world kind of like the sookie stackhouse series, so I was kind of left cold.

    There's nothing wrong with this book, it had it's ups and downs and a nice who done it (which was visible from a mile away), and there was your standard woman in trouble, alpha vampire claiming she's HIS, woman gets freaked, man has to save woman...all the classic cliche things that I'm kind of over at the moment. But hey if you like your love stories on the fluffy side with a dash of vampire and wit you should enjoy this book. For me, if book 2 goes on sale I'll probably get it, but nothing to really get drool worthy over.

    "Love this book!!"

    Finally some one who writes about vampires as people to with all the same problems as humans. Great storyline with very interesting characters and situations. Ms. Folsom develops great characters and sets everything in San Francisco. While love wins in the end, its the traveling there that makes this such a good book. There are a lot of twists and turns along the way and you are introduced to some interesting supporting characters. I can't wait to hear their stories as well.

    "Good Story Line, Terrible Writing"

    I fell in like with the characters Samson & Delila. However, the sentences were choppy, lacked description, added nothing to help the imagination of setting or visualization of characters. Overall, the writing was immature, lacked luster and description and left the reader/listener flat feeling like you were reading a pre-teen book as far as vocabulary and grammar. Lots of words, nothing imaginative.

    If someone would take this book and add a few adjectives and more mature adult character parts, it could be a great series. With the choppy sentences and lack of literary maturity, it didn't allow the narrator to be judged fairly either.

    I suppose I was expecting the literary caliber of J. R. Ward or Suzanne Brockmann. This book missed the mark in a big way. I did like the storyline and all of the under-developed characters have much potential.

    I downloaded the first 2 books in the series and hope Book 2 will exhibit more literary maturity. If not, I may ask for a refund.

    Stephanie Meyers' Twilight Series & E.L. James' 50 Shades writings matured after their first book in series, perhaps Tina Folsom will do better in Book 2 of this series too.

    "Hot sexy Vampires - Yes Please !!"
    Any additional comments?

    The story was ok but I struggled to fully enjoy the Narration by Kevin Foley. His female voices were not good but i did like his deep Low voice for Samson. There were lot's of sex scenes but i couldn't connect with them. Kevin's voice just didn't make them exciting enough. I'm not sure if i will continue with the rest of this series. This book just didn't quite grab my full attention, i skipped a couple of chapters with no problems catching up on the story. Not a good sign for me.

    Story
    "Decent story, wrong narrator"

    OK, the first 30 seconds almost killed it for me, but I gave the story a chance, and I ended up actually liking it. The narrator's voice is SO Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom, that it made me laugh during sex scenes when (in my warped mind) whatever he was saying became something like, "The strength of the cheetah's sinewy thighs are proven essential when it's time to mount his mate ...." The female voice he does is what a guy making fun of women might sound like. In fairness, I blame the publisher, not Mr. Foley, for this mess. He has a great voice, just not for this type of book. I have no doubt that he is FABULOUS in more of a documentary or educational type of book and I sincerely hope that this was his one experiment with female voices and romance and that he has decided against doing so again.....EVER

    In spite of that, if you see it on sale, the story itself is actually is an interesting one. I even found myself listening a second time, but I can understand those who gave up early. In cases like these, I try to pretend a well-meaning relative is reading at my sick bed and run the narration through my the-way-it should-sound filter and deal.

    Sorry to say it is not worth a credit unless re-recorded with a new reader, but I kind of hope they do just that and release the next books in this Scanguards series because I'd like to know what happens next.

    Story
    "Lifeless characters & lifeless narrator"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No idea. There are some very enjoyable vampire/ mortal books. Some are humorous, some are hot, some are suspenseful. This has none of those elements.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Tina Folsom again?

    Doubtful


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator brought no life to the characters & was dreadful with female characters


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

    Disappointment

    "The book was OK but..."
    Any additional comments?

    Narrated by Kevin Foley I liked his voice but he was so ho hum when reading the book. I didn't feel anything from his reading. In the action or in the love making part. And I have read other books on this subject that made it feel real. But this one was to low key. Maybe in a couple years I will listen to it again.
