Abigail Swish's life is nothing to brag about: gang-ridden city, orphanage style accommodations, and a matron who's kinda on the evil side. Not that she has to worry about that for much longer. She'll turn 18 soon, and then it's goodbye compound, hello dangerous streets of New York City. Of course, as her luck would have it, she doesn't make it to 18 before her world is turned upside down. One ambushed meeting with an accent-bearing, sword-wielding stranger, and suddenly her entire life as she knows it is a lie.

Saiya Buchanan is a wraith, able to detach her shadow from her body and send it off to do her bidding. But, unlike most of her kin, Saiya doesn't deal in death. Instead, she trades secrets - and in the goblin besieged city of Stirling in Scotland, they're a highly prized commodity. It might just be, however, that the goblins have been hiding the greatest secret of them all. When Gabriel de Florinville, a Dark Elf, is sent as royal envoy into Stirling and takes her prisoner, Saiya is not only going to uncover the sinister truth.

I liked the book a lot, and it was paced just right, making you want to continue reading.

but the "hero" wasn't really my cup of tea. A bit to high and mighty and free with his hands for my taste. I hate the "I'll have you begging for my touch" line very much, so that wasn't in his favor.

the heroine was nice and independent one minute and gagging for it the other, it gave me whiplash. She wasn't wholely unlikable though. She was brave and really tried to hold her own most of the time.

The story kept me interested enough that it was hard to put down and I liked the narration a lot.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

People that don't mind the heroine being a complete doormat

Has Wildest Dreams turned you off from other books in this genre?

Nope, but I'd really like a warning label for "male lead is a chauvinist pig"
Would have saved me money

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

Really great and engaging narration. The only reason I held on as long as I did

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Real sorry to let this one go, but I can take no more. Stranded in chapter 16

I listened this one (audiobook). The narrator was not to blame. In fact, she's the reason I got this far. The beginning was rather nice, I was enjoying the female lead. A sassy lady with spunk and a glass half-full attitude. Que the male lead... even though he was a real *not nice* (insert male bodypart) at the start, I warmed up to him as he warmed up to Finny. I was iffy on the whole keeping a secret from Finny part, but he could have salvaged that.

What was un-salvageable was the whole; "I'm an aristocrat, I'll fuck whoever I want, whenever I want even though I'm married and you'll just have to live with that if I'm inclined to do so" and "if you withhold sex, you're at fault if I get it somewhere else" and with the 'mother' adding insult to injury "it's up to you to keep your husband interested, as long as you give him anything he wants he won't be inclined to go looking outside of his marriage"

Finny turned into a brainless twit around him, a freakin' ninny agreeing to anything and everything and begging for it all. And that was a damn shame.

I hadn't read any reviews on Goodreads before buying (just the ones on Audible and they were raving) but after a few disappointed signs from Frey, I went looking. One of them said that at some point he even substitutes her birth-control meds for placebo's because "HE" will decide if and when baby's will be bourne (!!!). At that is AFTER he already cut her off from her own world without her knowing at the time, or notifying her after that.

I tried to listen on after that, but there were some more male chauvinistic remarks and the mothers "advice". And I was afraid I might throw my phone in anger if I came across the whole birth-control issue and the book isn't worth that. So this is it for me.

I like some aspects of the Alpha male type but Frey took it too far and I'm allergic to Ninny heroines.
