Publisher's Summary

Since she was eight years old, Lilly Rayne Nightingale felt like Fate was trying to wipe away her existence through a series of odd, near fatal incidences. Luckily, her best friend Will was always one step ahead of Fate preventing her from being at the wrong place at the wrong time. Will was her knight in shining armor until he broke her heart after their one and only kiss.

On Lilly's first day of college, she meets Brand Cole. Intrigued by Brand, Lilly must decide whether or not she can give up her adolescent fantasy of being reunited with Will and allow Brand the opportunity to conqueror her heart.

Not only do Will and Brand both love Lilly, they share a dark secret neither wants Lilly to discover. Lilly thinks Fate is after her once again when a new series of attempts on her life start to take place, but she soon learns someone of flesh and blood is trying to kill her this time.

    "I just ADORE this book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Cursed to be better than the print version?

    This was my first audio book and I loved it. I am one of those love to feel and smell my books, but the audio version of this one was amazing. I think the print version and the audio version of this book are equal in my eyes. I think the narrator really captured the spirit of the characters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character in this version had to of been Tara. In the print format it is Lily. I just loved hearing the narrator's impersonation of Tara and her sassy ways.


    Have you listened to any of Christa Lewis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was my first time listening to Christa's performance and I think she did a fine job. You can tell she took her time and got to know the character's before narrating.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    These books always make me laugh and cry. The way SJ took these fictional characters and brings them to life is amazing. I have read the print version four times and have the same reaction every time. I laugh when they laugh then cry when it is time to cry lol.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this as an audio read, or listen because it is one all of her fans ADORE. We love the watchers and I know anyone who ventures into these books will love them too!

    "A must read!"
    What made the experience of listening to Cursed the most enjoyable?

    The story is fantastic. The characters are amazing!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I definitely loved the story the best. S.J. West tells a vivid story that captures the reader and holds you captive until the very end!


    Which character – as performed by Christa Lewis – was your favorite?

    Brand Cole was my favorite character performed by Christa Lewis. She did a great job making all the characters sound different and unique.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I read this in one sitting, I just couldn't put it down! I've already picked up the ebooks for the 2nd and 3rd book.. I just wish they were available on audiobook as well!


    Any additional comments?

    I'm new to S.J. West's books but I'm a fan!!

    "Not as good as I hoped."
    What disappointed you about Cursed?

    The narrator was disappointing. The story was slow and predictable until the end, but I wonder if it was another narrator maybe it wouldn't have been so slow.


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

    I needed to feel connected to Lilly.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christa Lewis?

    I love Keven T. Collins, but Jill Redfield would be very good.


    Any additional comments?

    The story does become interesting at the end so it wasn't a complete loss.

    Story
    "Very pleasantly surprised"
    Would you listen to Cursed again? Why?

    I don't reread books unless I need to remember a previous book before reading the next in a series. I finished the trilogy, so I won't reread.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cursed?

    I loved Tara's interrogation of Bran.


    Which character – as performed by Christa Lewis – was your favorite?

    It was a tie between Tara and Malcolm.


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

    Lily's vulnerability and innocence when she tried to entice Will.


    Any additional comments?

    This was the best narrated book I've ever listened to.

    "Love this audiobook!"
    Where does Cursed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    If you liked Twilight this is better! Especially the writing style and Christa.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love Brand and Malcolm! Cursed and all of the watcher books are my favorite books of all time (and I have read many (more like a ton) books).


    What does Christa Lewis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Christa brought the characters voices to life. She brought expression to the words.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Everytime I had to push stop I would get so mad. I have read the book multiple times, but I think hearing it made me get the little nuances that SJ West put in her writing.

    "Can someone say amazing!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Cursed to be better than the print version?

    Honestly, I love to read the print version of a book before I listen to the audio version of it. I like to have a feel of the characters on my own. It's more personal in a way. After I have read the book, I love listening to the audiobook while I cook, clean, shower, just about anything, really.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cursed?

    I loved when Lilly first met Malcolm. I love when Tara gets sassy. And I love when Brand mans up and realizes that Lilly and him belong together and that they need each other.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when Lilly learns what Brand is and who Will really is.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it sure is.


    Any additional comments?

    I love SJ West's books, all of them. Cursed introduced me into a world of so much love and understanding. It's how I picture my child's life to be as she grows older and experiences these things for herself. It's a beautiful place that I like to get lost in from time to time.

    Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.

    "I couldn’t stop listening???"

    This is such a hard review for me to write since I really can’t explain why I kept listening to this one. I think I have a love/hate relationship with this book. There were so many things I didn’t like about the main character and many of her choices/actions were unrealistic for someone her age. I usually don’t have an issue with suspending my belief when it comes to paranormal romance but I struggled with this one. All the negative comments aside, I just couldn’t stop listening to this one. What was it about this book?? I suppose I really enjoyed the mystery and just had to know everyone’s deep dark secrets. Although not all the secrets were revealed in this book. I’m sure I will purchase the next one because the price is right and I apparently need some answers.

    3.5 stars
