As much as I've grown to love these characters, I can't put myself through another full book with Holter Graham telling the story!! He is HORRIBLE!!! Aside from him pronouncing Acheron (Asheron) wrong through the ENTIRE book....he absolutely RUINED Simi!!!! Her sing, songy wit is HER! Fred Bergman has spoiled us and Graham butchered her!!! I looked forward to the Dark Hunter series (not the Dream Hunter) and the next one is Acheron.....narrated by Graham. There is no way in Hell would I be able to tolerate over 23 hrs of him mispronouncing Ash's name!!!!!!!!!! UGH!!!!!! He should've probably done some research, by maybe listening to the previous books....before he agreed to take the job!! Oh well.....on to another series....I'm done with this one!!

Susan Michaels was once the hottest reporter on the Beltway Beat until a major scandal ruined her life and left her writing stories about alien babies and Elvis sightings. Life as she once knew it is over, or so she thinks, but then she gets a lead on a story that could salvage her extinct career. She heads to the local animal shelter, expecting a hot news tip, which she gets in the form of a major police cover-up...for a ring of soul-sucking vampires out to take over Seattle. So much for saving her credibility.

I love this series but.....this narrator was the worst!! It was a struggle to get through it! Besides his very irritating, way too NASAL voice....his pronunciation of the Spathy (has always been pronounce as Spath-I!) and changing Kale's name to Kyle midway through, left me correcting him every time he said it!! Ugh!!! Great story, horrible narration!!!

And he soon realizes that not only is Jess a target, she’s also the life mate for whom he’s been waiting....

I LOVE this series!!! So I forced myself to listen! It was a struggle to get through the 1st few chapters.....but stuck it out to enjoy the storyline. The Narrator was very monotone, and not at all what I am accustomed to with this series. Overall, I enjoyed the book & am looking forward to the next!!! Write faster Lynsay!! 😄

I really enjoyed the story line. The only complaint would be the bad New Orleans (I'm assuming that what the narrator was going for!) accent of Amanda & her family. I couldn't tell if they were transplants from deep Georgia that were trying for the NOLA sound or what. Being a Southern girl...I found it a bit annoying. But the story line made up for it. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

Vampire Zoltan Czakvar is on the hunt for the truth about his father’s death. He’s been searching for a very long time - since 1241, in fact. And he is not about to give up, even when he’s attacked by a woman with striking blue eyes and a hell of a right hook! Neona is also on the hunt. She’s looking for a mate and she thinks muscled Zoltan will work just fine. After all, men are good for only one thing. Soon, though, she realizes there’s more to this handsome vampire than just sexual prowess.

What did you like best about How to Seduce a Vampire (Without Really Trying)? What did you like least?

I love this series. Always interesting to see more characters introduced.

What did you like best about this story?

How all of the previous characters interact with the main couple.

How could the performance have been better?

The performance would've been better with a different narrator! Her tone, and sad attempt for accents was down right annoying!.....almost painful!!!! I only finished the audiobook because of the characters & my love of the series!!

What would have made this romance irresistible?

Another narrator!! Please, please, please use someone else for the next one!!

What made the experience of listening to Eternal Hunger the most enjoyable?

Audio Books are a new experience for me! Have to say, it's nice to have someone read to you! :o) I am addicted to Paranormal Romance Novels & Laura Wright is one of my Favorite Authors!

Have you listened to any of Tavia Gilbert’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, this was my 1st experience.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This was part of a long week of a Business trip....made flying & long layovers a lot easier to deal with! It's nice to be able to block noise out & just enjoy the story!

They killed me. They healed me. They changed me. Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn't exactly glamorous, but it was mine. I was doing fine until Chicago's vampires announced their existence to the world---and then a rogue vampire attacked me. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker...and this one decided that the best way to save my life was to make me the walking undead.
