He's a vampire from the big city....
Phineas McKinney thought New York City was tough, until he was attacked by Malcontents - evil vampires who consider mortals to be snacks. Saved by the good vampires, Phin swore to devote his now undead life to stopping the Malcontents. He's got his job cut out for him when word comes that their enemy may be hiding in Wyoming. What does a city boy like him know about horses and campfires? Good thing he's got Brynley Jones with him... if only she didn't hate every vampire on earth.
She's a werewolf princess...
Bryn believes vampires are seductive and charming, and that makes them dangerous. So she's more than a little annoyed about teaming up with Phin, even if he is the only bloodsucker able to make her inner wolf purr. But as they hunt down the new leader of the Malcontents, danger threatens... and Phineas and Brynley discover a passion that will rock the foundation of their supernatural world.

Say something about yourself!
TOOK ME A LITTLE TO GET INTO THE STORY BUT ONCE I DID IT WAS WELL WORTH IT. I LOOK FOWARD TO THE NEXT BOOK. I WONDER HOW DIFFERENT EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE SINCE PHINEAS IS NO LONGER JUST A VAMP. TAHT SHOULD GIVE YOU SOMETHING TO LOOK FOWART TO.
I have loved reading and listening to this series from the beginning, and was so excited to hear that we were going to get The Love Doctor's story! I will be getting it from the library TO READ myself- because P.J.Ochlan is one of the most boring audible readers I have ever listened to. Phin grew up in the Bronx- had a tough childhood, got in trouble with the law, and was unwillingly changed to a vampire- he has a life's story- and this reader is about as vanillla and undimensional as a reader can get. When I read the book myself, I'm sure I will enjoy it immensely, but listening to it is quite the drag. Keep up the good work Ms Sparks, but please vet your readers better.
I loved this series. But, I really prefer a series to at least have the majority of the books narrated be the same person. I know it's hard to have the same narrator for an entire series, but I would have enjoyed the listening experience more if the same narrator had read all of them.
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
This story has humor in the way that the "Love Doctor" pulls his little brother into McKay Security International. Adventure with Bryn when she tries to see her sister and it has a hook at the end with its unusual ending.
The closest book I can compare this to is the "Prey Eat Love". Both books show the angst in complicated relationshiips.
No I haven't listened to P. J. Ochlan before but I look forward to listening to him again. He really brings the characters to life with his shadings and voice inflextions.
DON'T CRY WOLF . . TO A VAMPIRE!
This was by far the funniest in the series. I did not stop laughing. buy this book if you like comedy. The narrator did a fantastic job with the different voices. My favorite character was Digger
I have read or listened to all previous books in this series and was really ecited about this one, however, Phin was said to be a Black man in the previous books and it seems that kind of changed in this one. I'd like to think that Phin evolved from his streetlike persona into a more refined young man instead of thinking the author decided to change the character's persona all together. But all in all it was a good book that continued to follow its predecessors. I look forward to the next installment.
It refers back to previous book stories
Since I have a favorite narrator..it is hard for anyone else to match up. This one was good.
Anything I listen to I feel like that so yes to this one too.
Looking forward to the next book. Holter Graham is a great narrator.
No!!! The narrator doesn't seem to understand the characters.
The story is similar to the other books in the series generally.
I am not a professional actor, but it seems that the narrator would have been well served to read the previous books in the series in order to get a better feel for Phineas, his history feelings and such.
The person who does rhe narrating is horrible, Dr Fang is not portrayed like he was in the other books
He made Dr Fang sound boring
Not if it has the same guy reading
I wish that it could have been someone better reading the book
