So i've gotten about 3/4 of the way through this book. It jumps from Maddox and Ashlynn, to some other characters in some other place. It's all over the place!

These guys have flat screen tvs but doesn't know what a tylenol is?

Oh and let's not forget about the caveman talk. "Must.", "Won't hurt you. Promised.", "Sorry, so sorry. Wanted to be gentler"
The caveman talk really just made me not like it very much. It may be different actually reading it, but if it's worded like that, then probably not.

This probably would have been a really good story if it were worded different in a lot of places.

The sex scenes were ok. Just ok. I only say that because of the caveman words.. I don't think i'll be going on to the next book.

The narrator wasn't bad. But maybe the way he sounded the words out made it sound all caveman like.

So many twists and turns! I laughed, i about cried, had me sitting in the edge of my seat! So many shocks also...

Had me wondering so many things throughout the book. "How is this going to turn out?!"

Luckily, the ending was great! I didn't think Killian would ever be a sweetie, but i was wrong!

This would have been a good story if it weren't for all the clean eating, rambling on about everything clean.... It just was not necessary. There were some really cheesy parts in the story also. I got to the 11th chapter and stopped. The narrator was pretty good! She really gets into those love scenes LOL! My only complaint is, it seems like she didn't put enough space in between parts. They run together almost. This is a fiction story, not a "real life, preaching" story. That's what I felt like this was.

He watches her from across the crowded dance club, a sensual black-haired stranger who stirs Gabrielle Maxwell's deepest fantasies. But nothing about this night---or this man---is what it seems. For when Gabrielle witnesses a murder outside the club, reality shifts into something dark and deadly. In that shattering instant she is thrust into a realm she never knew existed---a realm where vampires stalk the shadows and a blood war is set to ignite.

This looks like a pretty promising story. I really wanted to like!

The Narrator... Not for me. She sounds so bored. She does good with the characters, but in between, she just sounds bored.

I got through the 1st chapter, i couldn't listen anymore. I may try reading the book instead.

It has been 13 years since the war started, the bombs were dropped, and the central states became a thing of the past. When the war ended, a wall was erected to divide the surviving states from those destroyed. I never expected to go beyond the wall, but unlike all the others who volunteered to go, I wasn't given a choice. With a dim knowledge of what I could do, the soldiers came for me. They took me beyond the wall where I learned that the truth is far more terrifying than I'd ever dreamed.

This would be a good story if you can keep track of who is who. I've even tried reading the book before the audible version. It bounces back and forth between the 2 characters. And some of the characters just sound ridiculous! The narrator didn't help, kind of just "blah" voice. But, it would be a good story. It probably is a good story if you like the way it's written.
