I love this series. While the books from the men's POVs are not as scorching as the earlier books, they are still hot. This one had lots of twists, scary moments, and left me wondering if everyone would survive. I can't wait to see what happens next!

This book was about Todd Wallace (Falon). As with the other books of the dom's POVs, this recaps some of the history between him and Brie, then covers the time of Thane's accident until shortly after his death. We also get more insight into the boy he killed in the car accident and the aftermath through Trevor's (the boy in the accident) parents' eyes. The narrator didn't do a great job with this book. He kept forgetting which voice he used for the characters which made it a little hard to follow the conversations.

This book was about Ritzar Durov (sp?). It covers the time of his finding out about Thane's accident to shortly after Thane comes out of his coma. The book was ok and the narrator did a fairly good job with the material. I don't know if there were typos or if he just couldn't remember how he'd been pronouncing Leah's (sp?) name. One time it was Lee, another Lay-ah (sounds like Princess Leia from Star Wars), and another it was pronounced as Lee-ah (like it was in the earlier books).

I didn't care for this book as much as the others in the series. There were minor inconsistencies in the plot (such as safe words: in the first 9 books, Tono had Brie and others use green, yellow, and red. In this one, Tono had Autumn use the Japanese equivalent.) which detracted from the story. I'm hopeful that others in the series will be better.

SPOILER ALERT!


This is the first book in this series narrated by someone other than Pippa Jayne. It was interesting to see recent events (from marriage to Sir's injuries) from Master Anderson's point of view. We also get to see that he is not a monk outside of the training center since he has sex with some of the guests after the wedding and is involved in a new romance. The only drawback to this book was the fact that after 10 books and being so familiar with Pippa Jayne's voices for the characters, it was a little difficult to keep track of who was who. That's the good thing about having one narrator for an entire series but I understand why Red Phoenix chose to use a different narrator for this book since it is a different POV.

The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. This was a good book. There were thrills, chills, a steamy romance, and a HEA. My only problem with the book was that the narrator, Emily Wahlund, read the book at a somewhat rushed pace. There were times that it was appropriate. However, I would have enjoyed it more if she'd slowed down a bit for the rest of the book.

Wow, what a great book! There were lots of twists, turns, and a hint of a very hot future romance. My only complaint, if it can be called that, is that the author used "he said" and "she said" repetitively rather than more descriptive text such as "he roared," "he whispered," etc. Even with that very minor annoyance, I loved the start of what promises to be a thrilling series. I can't wait to start the next book!

The author provided me with a complimentary copy of this audiobook with no expectation of a review. I loved this book. I wasn't sure at first. Mainly because the narrator takes audible breaths, almost as though she's gasping for air, which was a bit distracting. I know everyone breaths but I don't usually notice it like I did with this book. I've noticed that the next two books have a different narrator so I'm hoping those books will be better.

There were a lot of twists and turns. It was a fairly enjoyable listen (despite the narration issue). There was a cliffhanger but not so much so that I was screaming "no, why did it have to end there!" LOL. I look forward to continuing the series soon.
