An Inconvenient Mate | [Lora Leigh]

An Inconvenient Mate

Isabelle Martinez was instantly fascinated by the sexy Coyote Breed she met at the bar, but her sensual flirtation with him was cut short when she saw the man who'd attacked her arrive at the bar. Breed enforcer Malachi Morgan was entranced by Isabelle's mix of shyness and boldness, and he was determined to chase and play with his sensual prey. But he could tell she'd been hurt before by a man, and he vowed that Isabelle was now his to protect and love, even as if it meant going against her family and his orders.

    "AWFUL!"

    The main character is not strong at all. The male is annoying. The narration is awful and this Russian accents are so bad. The supporting characters are annoying. The heroine (sorry--the main victim) is content to be a 25 year old virgin who almost got raped and can only cry and say, "My man will kill you," when she is kidnapped. Sorry, but I rather read about stronger women who don't let themselves be pushed around. Save your money--pass this one by.

    "Loved it More Breed Books"

    I loved this short story, and Briana Bronte is for me the voice of The Breeds. Yes it has explicit sex scenes, but unlike death and taxes you do not have to either listen or read books of this nature, if you choose to then please do not take the moral high ground and complain as it reeks of Hypocrisy.

    I love the breed series and would eagerly buy the earlier books i.e. Tempting the Beast, The Man Within and Elizabeth's Wolf in audio format.

    Thanks Audible for bringing them aboard,.

    Story
    "Good in series, not as intro"
    What did you like best about An Inconvenient Mate? What did you like least?

    Best: it was an enjoyable addition to the series despite the narrator

    Least: the narrator read the heroine as a whiny, puling, weak thing.


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

    different narrator, a little more polish to bring it up to the quality of the larger novels, and a slight rework on the ending so that it doesn't seem as "deus ex machina" as a stand alone novel (in the context of the series, the ending does work and acts as a draw into the next story)


    How could the performance have been better?

    While I found the narrator to be a competent voice actor, with a decent tonal variety that allowed me to ignore the less pleasant qualities enough to finish the novel, her voice went nasal on a few occassions, and her reading of the heroine's voice especially was so tremulous that it was disgusting.

    I really despised that. While it could be a valid interpretation of what was written, it was not in the spirit of the Ms. Leigh's writing as a whole, and was frankly a character-killer in that it made it very difficult to think of the heroine as worthy of her heroic status. A more enjoyable interpretation would have been the "stiff upper lip in the face of overwhelming adversity", or at least something that planted her feet on solid ground.


    Could you see An Inconvenient Mate being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Movie, yes. It was actually short enough to translate well without having to drop anything of even mild importance. The entire series could probably make the shift to TV well, too.


    Any additional comments?

    This is probably not the best introduction to the series, but it is a good addition to it. One of the full-length novels would make a better introduction.

    On the bright side, as a romance-themed series, the order of reading isn't as important as with a series that follows a particular character.

    Some elements of the series:

    The Breeds are a "bound by destiny" romance type, in the vein (pun intended) of Christine Feehan's heroes.

    Ms. Leigh, however, does a much better job of creating different heroic types within her mold and different plots than Feehan has managed.

    Each story in the series does further the development and timeline of the Breed universe.

    "The story concept is interesting, however"
    What would have made An Inconvenient Mate better?

    not so much crude wording and ideas


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Kiss of Midnight by Lara Adrian


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    the narration was fine, too many attempts as sounding sultry


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

    disappointment and some revulsion, don't get me wrong I like a good sex scene, these were just too crude for me.


    Any additional comments?

    The story could be so interesting. The overall concept is good, just goes to far with the sex for my tastes.

    "Classic Lora"

    Is about all one can say. There is so much left to the saga that it's good to have the odd shortie thrown in.

    "My First Breed Audiobook but Not My Last"

    I've been reading the Breeds series since its very beginning. Never before had I tried them on audio but I'm glad I did. It was a different experience to hear the story told to me, really adding to the experience. Of course, Leigh's books in this series are well written - creative, suspenseful, romantic and sexy. So, so good.

    Story
    "Too short"
    Where does An Inconvenient Mate rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I rate this a little lower than the other books because the story was so abbreviated. We don't get to become familiar with the characters or their lives before it is just done. Otherwise it was a good book at all of this series are.


    Would you recommend An Inconvenient Mate to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes, but because of how short it is, I might recommend waiting for a sale.

    "Leigh's High Standards"
    Would you consider the audio edition of An Inconvenient Mate to be better than the print version?

    I used to read all of the series and now I can no longer hold the books, glad it was on audiobook


    What was one of the most memorable moments of An Inconvenient Mate?

    thought coyote's were only bad.


    Any additional comments?

    I have enjoyed all of the breeds series and hope to continue to do so
