After seeing her maybe-mobster boss murder a guy, Delaney James assumes a new identity and pretends to be a mail order bride. She finds her groom-to-be living in a town that celebrates Halloween every day. Weird. But not as weird as what she doesn't know. Her groom-to-be is a 400-year-old vampire.

I honestly loved this book! it was quite funny and romantic. Not overly dramatic, like a lot of other romance books. And it didn't have overly graphic sex scenes. It was clean, and it implied a lot, making you use your imagination.

the narrator did a wonderful job! I could always tell who was talking

It sounded good, but I couldn't get through it

The premise for the book sounded good. So did the world building in the first 2 chapters I listened to. However, I couldn't handle the main girl. She was spouse to be a 22 year old bad ass shifter. What I heard was a bratty teenager. She may get better later in the book, but I don't want to wait for that.

If teen drama is your thing, you actually might really enjoy this. It's got a good reverse harem going on. And the supernatural world seems very interesting

Jayne Frost is a lot of things. Winter elf, Jack Frost's daughter, Santa Claus' niece, heir to the Winter Throne and now...private investigator. Sort of. But none of that matters at the moment, because Jayne is headed back to the North Pole to visit her family, and leaving everyone’s favorite werewolf, Birdie Caruthers, to watch her cat, Spider.

I really liked this book. It was much shorter than any book I have listened to before. But just because it was short, doesn't mean I didn't get just as much enjoyment out of it. I thought it was funny and cute, with a dash of romance. In all honesty I have no idea if I was spouse to listen to other books before this one... though even if I was, I didn't have any problem following the story with all the characters. Which I loved!

Note on the narrator:
I thought he did a wonderful job. I could always tell who was speaking at any given time.

A growing movement of young people is rebelling against the low expectations of today's culture by choosing to "do hard things" for the glory of God. And Alex and Brett Harris are leading the charge. Do Hard Things is the Harris twins' revolutionary message in its purest and most compelling form, giving readers a tangible glimpse of what is possible for teens who actively resist cultural lies that limit their potential.

I read do hard things before with my youth group when I was 20. It was very good then but listening to it 5 years later is even better. As a 25 year I got more out of this than half of my teens in youth group. But I think that's okay. I think even as a young adult I can still rebel against low expectations.

You won't be disappointed in getting this book! :D
