OK... I see Breathless Series all over again... Which I did eventually like...
Not until the 3rd book in the Breathless Series did I really f..Show More »eel like it was a Banks Series... This kinda fell along those lines. Sometimes, Banks just don't do it for me and sometimes she does...
What really irritated me about this book wasn't actually the book, it was the darn blurp about how this was a crossover between Breathless and Surrender Series..
I spent the entire book looking for characters from Breathless and I really don't think the two main characters from this book appeared in Breathless...so WTF!
Anyway, this story was good, but I really didn't like the male (H). He was just... unrealistic if that makes sense...
The female (h) had a lot of plausible characteristics such as she waited 2yrs to move on after the death of her husband, and she actually grieved...and had a hard time trying to accept another man... She had a hard time letting friends and family know she wanted to move on... See plausible characteristics... Now the (H), he goes from best friend to dominating man of your dreams in like 3.4 secs.....???? What?????
Like I said... Breathless Series all over again... Book 1... OK; Book 2... Better; and Book 3... A Banks Romance!
Let's hope I can wait around for book 3....and since it's a crossover series, I would like to see Jace, Ash, Mia, Bethany... someone from the Breathless Series soon..
Nice Sale... I would actually save my credit for something a bit more fulfilling, definitely not a buy.
The story itself is okay, I wish I had actually read this one instead of listening to it. It isn't my favorite Maya Banks, The characters are TOO dam..Show More »aged to let the story really heat up.
The real deal breaker though was the narration. Kylie is sooooo whiney I spent a good deal of time gritting my teeth thru her portions, And her man's tones, sounds a little like......well.....Forrest Gump. My internal loop kept playing "Run Forrest Run" and Stewie's "Mom Mom Mom Mommy Mommy Mommy." which made it a little tough to get into the parts that actually were hot.
I loved this book. I have listened to the entire series - and I think this is by far my favorite. Throughout the other two books Chessy's problems ha..Show More »ve been mentioned but not addressed. Now they are and WOW... While it can be read as a stand alone, I highly recommend you read the other two first. You will love them. Maya Banks is amazing.. I love her books!
