First impressions are everything and were I reading this instead of listening I still might be put off my a multitude of corny instances... but when y..Show More »ou get a narrator who sounds like an elf (the Christmas kind) when they read guy voices, it's very off-putting. When vampires sound like they have had a puff or two of helium, it's hard to follow a book and take it seriously.
Now add in the fact that a series of ridiculous instances starts off the book, including a very strong vampire breaking a tooth off in the plastic of a sex toy and a dentist that's afraid of blood, and this amateur attempt of storytelling comes of as a sad attempt of entertainment. I don't mean to be harsh, but with all the vampire novels flooding the market you really have to bring your A game as an author, and having vampires that suck blood rough their teeth like a straw, and then having their teeth be easily breakable, you'd think that they would have a dentist handy. But no, the only dentist is available is a hot young human woman with no connections who happens to be running from the mafia. And the mafia shows up on her dental doorstep right as the vampire does - gasp - and at the sight of blood, she faints! - insert sighing-fainty noise - Of course the vampire, who only two minutes earlier hoped for a guy dentist because he was so horny and could not hold himself back in the presence of a woman, not only falls instantly for this rare woman who can evade his vampy mind-tricks, but he now feels the need to rescue her by stuffing her in the getaway car and making her duck her head in his lap as they make their escape.
Oh and he says "God's Blood" every other sentence.
I really wanted to give this book 1 star but I guess another can go with it for effort since the author seems to have written more in this series. I just felt the need to warn others that this is definitely not worth a credit. Read about Sookie Stackhouse or Jane Jameson instead.
These books are a fun diversion from reality but the narrator choice for THIS one ruins the fun. WHY, when the main character of THIS book is Scottis..Show More »h, did they choose a narrator who can NOT do a Scottish accent? The narrators for the other books (so far) have done FINE Scottish accents so it makes NO sense that this narrator was chosen for THIS book. Makes me believe that the publisher takes a "who's up next" attitude toward choosing narrators and they should be ashamed! It's a disservice to the author, reader and to the otherwise capable narrator.

I actually found her character interesting until she falls to fast and to hard for Jack. It would have been nice to keep her a little more edgy.
