Symphony of Light, book one
One woman. Seven men. All bound by one man's undying devotion.
Fundraiser Linden Hill has a knack for reading people. She always knows which conversations will put a prospect at ease, which drink will loosen a patron's lips - or his wallet - and how cleavage will make a donor sweeten the deal. She's even foreseen her dateless weekends 464 times in a row.
But 10 years after watching life drain from her former mentor's and first love's eyes, her skills for divining the predictable are lost. When Cyril returns, he's still gorgeous, but this time he's beyond human, far less dead, and pissed. His lack of memory drives him to desperate acts, and his turbulent re-acquaintance with Linden pulls her into his war with a creature hell-bent on his destruction. His group of six supernatural men share a tantalizing secret, but despite the hunger, it's love that leads her to sacrifice everything to save him....

Addicted to any type of Romance/Erotica audio books.
I need to start by saying that I LOVED this book!!!! It was different from any other PNR I've read before! The characters are realistic, bad ass, loving and flawed! The story was a little confusing but in a good way and enough to make me not want to stop until I knew every detail!!! Cyril is hot, possessive and seriously devoted to his friends & Linden!!! Linden is a little lost but still very tough especially considering her past. Together these two are off the charts hot, they are a seriously powerful couple and their relationship is the definition of destiny!!!
The action, suspense, angst and romance/sex in this book was perfect!!!! I loved that the characters were all weaved into each others lives over and over again! I also enjoyed the "past" chapters, It made the story so much better for me to get the back story in a memory rather than an explanation. I love the twist in the end and can't wait for book 2!
The narration is incredible! Noah & Erin have a chemistry that made these characters walk right out of this book and into my heart! The voices Noah gave to Cyril, Overton & Michael made it seem like three different men were narrating! (Michael's voice was my favorite).
This is my 3rd Renea Mason book & seconds Noah/Erin narration and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them all! I will read ANYTHING Renea writes and listen to ANYTHING Noah & Erin narrate together!
THIS IS A MUST LISTEN AUDIOBOOK!
I love audiobooks!!!
I am so glad this book is finally in audio. The narration team did a phenomenal job with voicing the characters. DeWard did a spot-on Linden, and Levine moved easily from the snotty Overton to the gruff and perpetually angry Cyril. Symphony was the first book I ever read by this author, and I've read all of her books, since. The inclusion of Imposter's Kiss was a nice addition. Great job to all involved in this project. You nailed it!
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
Idk...maybe I need too when I am in a better mood...this was not a fave for me...and I am disappointed because I love Renea so much!!!
I am going to say when Linden meets Cyril again...she was like WHAT?
I did not care for this narration...it was overly dramatic on Erin's part...the laughing was a little maniacal at times and it was a bit uncomfortable to listen to at times...I know I am probably going to get lynched but I will not lie...
I am going to end this on a positive note....this was a very very creative story...I think I need to let it process in my brain a bit more...and I liked the characters and the concept...Renea is an excellent writer, and the sexy scenes were HOT AF!!! I already have book 2 in my library so I will be continuing the series later this month...Duet narration is an awesome experience...and although the narrators didn't blow me away in this one...they are still one of my fave teams...and I have listen to them in other things that I absolutely could not get enough of...
A MUST LISTEN FOR ANY MASON FAN!!!
You don't want to miss out on this book. This book was different from any other I have read. I like to go into books with an open mind so I don't read reviews or the book summary. So with that said I kind of thought it would be a paranormal shape-shifter book, that was not the case. He was immortal and some had special powers.
To me this story was the ULTIMATE LOVE STORY and so much more. I don't read romance books because of the insta-love but that was not the case with this book. You got to see their love grow for each other and not just that but you got to see all that went on while they were apart and how it brought them back together. I was in LOVE with this book. I can tell you right now this is not a one time read. I read this book from start to finish with no breaks in between. I could not put it down. It took me over a day to even write this review because it's hard to express just how great I thought this book was. I think this is the best book I've read all year. I can't wait for the next book in the series to come out. I'm so excited to see what will happen next. I think Renea Mason really showed just how talented she is with this book. An excellent listen. I just loved this book so so much.
The narration was great. I love Erin deWard's voice. They both really bring the characters to life and make you fell part of the story.
I would definitely recommend this book to a friend that was open to reading not only a fabulous story but some very hot steamy scenes.
Linden was definitely my favorite character mainly because we got to feel so much of her emotion.
The narration team made this audio book for me they could not have done a better job of bringing those characters to life it was a beautiful marriage of words and reading.
Some of both
Well worth the listen.
Having read the ebook first, I didn't think audio would add to the experience but I was so wrong. I'm glad I tried! The narrators add real depth to the characters that my mind washed over as I tore through the book. I sure do like Clarence more than I did in the book. Cyril is sexy as hell and larger than life. Linden is sassy and as in charge of her life as one can be around supernatural men. :) The two have immediate chemistry and the narrators really bring that out. I listened to it while at work and had to keep the volume down even though I use headphones, it's that steamy. Excellent narrative, excellent writing and characterization. <3
I had read this book before I listened to it and I have to say that listening brought it to a whole new level. I loved this book. Cyril and his family are bigger than life in their otherworldly way. The story takes Linden and Cyril on a journey through so many trials. You learn so many things about how their lives have intertwined. Amazing story.
Noah Michael Levine does a phenomenal job with all the accents and the story. He brings Cyril and the other characters to life.
Erin Deward did a phenomenal job also. She brought out Linden's tough and soft side brilliantly.
I would highly recommend this author and narrators. They are great.
Wow I'm just speechless. I 💜 Symphony of Light and Winter. The back and forth banter between Lindel and Cyril was amazing. The narrator's did an awesome job. Between the writing an the narrator's I felt like I was watching it plan out on the big screen. And the ending left me screaming for more👏👏👏
I don't normally gravitate to paranormal stories. I listened to the contemporary/ erotica series that Renea offers. I really enjoyed them. I LOVED this one. It made me ugly cry in the car. Very rare has a book or audiobook done that. I was in love with the characters' strength and grace. Cyril and Liden's story played out like a beautiful orchestration. I am sad the book ended on a cliff hanger and excited to know there is more at the same time.
The bonus material of Imposters' Kiss was hot. I loved a little more insight of Cyril.
I loved this book! This audio book performance is the best I have heard yet! The dual narrators Noah Miachael Levine and Erin deWard give a stunning performance making me feel like I am really there watching as the story unfolds. The performance is heart felt and filled with emotions, so much so that you can even hear one of the narrators crying.
This story is the most fantastic paranormal read I have ever read! It has danger, suspense, romance, lots of steamy hot sex and loads of emotions. The author, Renea Mason is a superb writer and can tell a story that is always one of a kind. The narrators as awesome as they are, are explosive when they read material written by Ms Mason.
If this book doesn't win an audie award, I don't know what will as this story combined with the performances can keep anyone warm and comforted. Even if you read this book in eBook format, it comes to life like a whole new story when read in audio format. The bonus story, Impostor's kiss is even more incentive to read this book. What a wonderful surprise this was!!!
