"Swift-moving and sexually charged....an electrifying read, one that should satisfy [Feehan's] fans and cement her reputation as the reigning queen of the paranormal romance." (Publishers Weekly)
I agree with a previous review by Henry. There's too much gratuitous sex and not enough story line during the second half of the book. I got sick of hearing about the sexual tension and "heat" between the characters. I enjoyed Dangerous Tides and Night Game much more. This is definitely the weaker of her books. It was hard to make it through the second half.
Th first half of the book was exciting and held my interest. The narrator's accent was annoying but tolerable. The second half completely dropped the story line in favor of gratutious sex. The worst part was that almost all sentences used the word body, but Mr. Stechschulte could not seem to pronounce it. It seemed to be baaaaaahdy or bhhhaaady or some such varaiation which became extremely annoying , and I could not finish the book, which is a first for me.
I honestly write these reviews in a spirit of sharing and helpfulness. I have no idea why I always end up sounding so snotty...
This book has a lovely intriguing begining that is satisfying (especially if you've read Shadow Game) but the last 6 hours are labored and dull. It's a pity.
I love the stories of light supernatural tales with some romance, and giggles.
an impossible match made possible
more inflection than I could give
wanted to laugh, and relax after sooo...much sex
sex took away some of the underlying story it seems as though he was filling the pages with sex instead of making it a really special
I have read 4 in the series, and frankly I do not care about the rest. I groan each time the narrator says body!
Not other books, but from the series
Unless you enjoy repetitive sex and orgasms spend your credits on something else.
I had the same exact complaint that Henry had (Feb 07). I almost bought another of her books but remembered that I had listened to a horrible book not too long ago and wondered if it was one of hers. Then I thankfully found Henry's comments. I didn't even finish that book! and I ALWAYS finish books...always. When I found myself talking out loud to the book and saying "he touched her baaaahhhhddddyyy," I knew the book was a lost cause. Save your credits unless you like to hear the word "baaaaahhhhdddyyy" a million times!
I don't think either is better than the other. I love her books and Tom tells it so beautiful.
When they fall for the girl
The female leads combination of innocence and strength.
Dahlia was a fun character and strong in way most people couldn't be.
Better than the launch pad for the series nice to see growth.
