This is certainly the type of stories I love but as much as I tried, I just couldn't enjoy it. The overall story was captivating enough for me to keep listening to see how it would all end but it was almost painful. By what would be the second book I found one of the main characters, Danielle, truly annoying. Although the author warns the reader of her "Girliness" Danielle was more whinny then girly. I was also able to zone out and miss a good amount of the story and although I wanted to be updated on what was happening, it was not enough for me to rewind. I just didn't find that "It" factor to this series that others did. At least the narrator was pretty good.

When first published to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Saturday Night Live, Live from New York was immediately proclaimed the best book ever produced on the landmark and legendary late-night show. In their own words, unfiltered and uncensored, a dazzling galaxy of trail-blazing talents recalled three turbulent decades of on-camera antics and off-camera escapades.

The first few chapters were pretty entertaining but after a while some of the stories dragged on. Then towards the end it seems as if stories were repeated. I often thought that I had gone back to a previous chapter knowing I had already hear a tale before only to see that in fact they had repeated a story. So if you're a true SNL you'd probably enjoy it but it seemed to drag on in my opinion.

I'm not a one-night stand kind of woman. I'm especially not the woman who has a few drinks at a concert and ends up in bed with my childhood celebrity crush, Eli Walsh. However, that's exactly where I find myself. What's a girl to do after a drunken mistake? Run. I grab my clothes and get away from the powerful, irresistible, and best-sex-of-my-life superstar as fast as I can.

I thought the threat from Seattle was finished. That we showed up in time and took care of business. I hate being wrong. It really ruins my day. When Roger, the alpha of the North American pack, shows up at my door with the news that a demon has made it to the Underworld with knowledge of me, some hard decisions have to be made. Do I stay above ground, with all my magical friends, and wait for the battle to come to me? Or do I seek the demon out, and pluck the threat out by the root? I don't want my friends to die on my behalf.

Even after being disappointed with book 2, I still had to give book 3 a try to find out the end. Sadly I was even more disappointed with this one. I was looking forward to a big wrap up. What I found was a story that dragged on with no real purpose. Chapter after chapter of weird circus towns and desserts with weird events taking place but nothing truly exciting. So after enduring slow uneventful story lines it ends with no real climax. Just "My boring trek through hell is complete and now I'll just lay low with my hot vampire lover who truly is in love with me even though vampires shouldn't be capable of love. But I'm not even going to look into that because I'm laying low." It ends like the author just lost interest and said "I'm bored so end it here". Just was expecting better.

Supernatural Bounty Hunter isn't the sort of thing you see on LinkedIn. But with a rare type of magic like mine, I don't have many options. Dangerous or not, the job is mine. And it was going fine, until an old-as-sin vampire stole my mark, and with it, my pay day. Knowing I'm poor and desperate, he has offered me a job. I'll have to work by his side to help solve a top secret case. Everyone knows not to trust vampires. Especially a hot elder vampire.

The killings that once plagued New Orleans are cropping up again in Seattle. The local office is stumped. I'm called out to lend a fresh set of eyes and my unique magical touch. It's only when I get there that I realize the Seattle office isn't stumped at all. They're being silenced by the Mages' Guild, a corrupt magical institution that doesn't want word to get out of what is plaguing the city. Worse, news of my magic might've slipped down to the underworld, hitting the ears of some extremely powerful demons.

My name is Sebastian Lindstrom, and I'm the villain of this story. I've decided to lay myself bare. To tell the truth for once in my hollow life, no matter how dark it gets. And I can assure you, it will get so dark that you'll find yourself feeling around the blackened corners of my mind, seeking a door handle that isn't there. Don't mistake this for a confession. I neither seek forgiveness nor would I accept it. My sins are my own. They keep me company. Instead, this is the true tale of how I found her, how I stole her, and how I lost her.

Not sure what this says about me but I FREAKEN LOVE THIS BOOK. The story is engaging from start to finish. Celia Arron does a wonderful job of humanizing the "Bad Guy". You'll be cheering for him from the start. On top of the great story all three narrators do an AMAZING job of bring the characters to live.

I truly believe Shane East has one of the sexiest voices out there. He could read any story and make it sound amazing. He's why I rushed to get this book and while Shane didn't disappoint the story was lacking a bit of something. While the main characters have you rooting for them there really isn't much to the story. Pretty straight forward guy and girl fall in love in spite of the fact that neither one of them want to fall in love ever again. Not much else to the story.
