Publisher's Summary

Three signs that something is very different with your new man:

1. He sleeps all day... which would be annoying, except he's so attentive at night.

2. He's attacked by sword-wielding assailants, yet insists he can handle it on his own.

3. He never seems to age.

Heather Westfield has always lived a quiet life, but that all changes when she helps a very handsome, very mysterious stranger. There's something not quite right about Jean-Luc, but still, she's never been with a man so charming, so attractive... so wonderful. Now if only a murderous villain wasn't after them, they might get their happily-ever-after.

Bite into another Love at Stake novel.

    "Formulaic, but good."

    I'm beginning to see an emerging pattern in Sparks' love scenes, which makes listening to the series one right after the other pretty monotonous, because the romance is a big yawn at times. I liked the main character, she's pretty feisty, and the babysitter is a total hoot, and the hero is, again, handsome and rich...but that's what makes romance novels--paranormal or not--fun.

    "I really enjoy this series!"
    What did you love best about The Undead Next Door?

    I love the characters and how they play off each other. How they bring out a rich and exciting story, keeping your interest and wanting to know more about them.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Love At Stake series is great. The characters, the emotions they show, the fascinating story all pull you into their lives and make you care and want to know more about them. Plus you get to hear more about the others that continues to fill in their characters, making them more real and intersting.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Deanna Hurst’s performances?

    Yes as I enjoyed the way each characters was just enough different that I had no problem keeping them separated and knowing who was speaking at any given time. The characters voices were each separate and distinct.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm looking forward to getting the rest of this series in audible format.

    "A story performed well"
    Where does The Undead Next Door rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    That depends on the rating system and the types of books. You can't rank them in the same league as the BDB JR Ward series, L Adrian's Breed series or even Larissa Ione's demonic series. While I absolutely love those books, this is a little lighter. With an interesting yet predicable storyline. I find this series entertaining and relaxing. Not quite as humorous as Lynsay Sands A-Vampire series but a close second.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the way Deanna read the store. I almost didn't pick this as listen because everyone seemed to trash the performance. But I felt the performance fit the story. Of course the French accents were over the top but this is not like we should expect the Les Miserable performance.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I think when the ex was scrabbling around thinking he was a cock roach


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Paris to Texas and back again


    Any additional comments?

    If you want an enjoyable listen go for it.

    What did you love best about The Undead Next Door?

    Funny, some good lines by hilarious Hispanic babysitter!


    How could the performance have been better?

    Accents of various voices poorly performed including the Texas one.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    J Luc's moments with Bethany.


    Any additional comments?

    Some of the best lines by the babysitter had me laughing out loud. Heroine not very sympathetic and pretty much an idiot at times. The phrase "at war with fear" could have been used less. But worth the read.

    "Yikes!"

    This was more like a preteen girl's fantasy story about an unexceptional young, plump, divorced mother of one who has an unexceptional ultra-famous French fashion designer vampire fall madly in love with her and her little girl, puts a punishing spell on her obnoxious ex husband, and gives her the opportunity of a lifetime to design clothes for other plump women under his famous fashion label. Oh yeah, there's a really lame "bad guy" who shows up briefly.

    The only interesting part of this story was the feisty Hispanic gun-toting nanny and a sexy description of the hero/heroine's first kiss. Their sleeping together near the end wasn't even noteworthy. Also, the narrator's rural Texan drawl and French accents were both cringe-worthy.
