Unbelievable! A mash up of murder and mushy love

My chair is turned around backward and there is a lot of honking. I turn around I am wearing a clown wig and nose. “Erm, sorry about that. I was just cleaning my horn. (Show horn).

I think you can tell by my appearance what my favorite scene in the book was, it was obviously the clown porn scene. It was sooooo funny. And I have to say that once you hear it you won’t get it out of your head. It isn’t all that the book is about, and I don’t want to paint that picture, but it is just an amazing scene.

Digital hearts starts off with some players completing one game and being invited to join a new game, one that deals with romance, and love as well as some rough play sex. It also has a serial killer. In fact, I sort of felt like this was a mash up of Dexter and Debbi Does Dallas. Sorry, I like alliteration and that’s honestly the only porno I know, aside from A Clockwork Orgy and that is too arthouse.

Anyway, the story centers on the killer who is torn between two girls. One a dirty girl who wants him to join her team, and another nicer girl who isn’t above helping her man bury a body. You can root for who you will, there is no right or wrong answer, and the fact that the player has to make a choice at the end of the book, and that his choice will not only shape the game but reality as well is pretty powerful. The choice that is made may shock you, but I can honestly say that it is the one I would have made.

Digital hearts is a world that reminded me a lot of the Sims, if you virtualized yourself into the game and then was able to earn money and power in the real world. Something is off with the real world, and I have to say that DH sort of blurred the lines. Whenever someone died they did not return, so permadeath was a factor. Plus there were points where the game felt more like it was the real world than a digital one. I will say this is more Game lit than crunchy Litrpg, because there aren’t a ton of mechanics involved and the most obvious way to be reminded of that was by hearts appearing over heads of other players or notifications about your social standing. For example, I can’t recall if it was charisma or attractiveness but it would increase by performing certain social tasks. I have to laugh, because I can tell this book was written by a woman, even if I had no other ideas but the social clues. For example, one character gets a boost just for listening which is something very few men ever cotton onto. I told my son, when you take a girl out don’t talk about yourself. Ask about her, and pay attention. Just listen, and you’ll remain mysterious. He listened to me and bam, now he has a girlfriend. So, I’m not as dim as I look. So, the game works on real life principles. The story is the brainchild of Lynch, Lovecraft, Barker, and Cronenberg it is weird wild and has a neat twist ending.

The sex scenes are solid, and while I jest about the clown stuff, a little, it was intriguing and arousing so if you are interested in some down and dirty sex then this is certainly an aspect that will suck you in, no pun intended.

Anniliese Rennie narrates this story with sauce, spice, and a wink. She tackles the material like a linebacker on steroids, and gives it everything she has. The fact that she did the clown scene so well without turning it into a slapstick shows her professionalism. Plus, her deep voice is sexy as hell. Hell, she could get one of those Howard 100 shows like Tissue Time, which I have never heard BTW (I don’t have satellite radio) very easily, and I mean that as a compliment. Her narration skills have risen in my eyes.

Final score 8 stars.

It's A 50 Shades of The LitRPG World

I received a free credit for this book in exchange for an unbiased review.

First things first... I joked with friends about clown porn, but now I have an image from this book that will haunt my dreams for an extremely long ass time.

Now... HOLY CRAP!!! This book is basically like a 50 Shades story or a "Dear Penthouse", but for the LitRPG world. The level of details in the sex scenes is intense and I could not stand up straight while listening.

The story started off a bit slow, but once Morgan got into the Digital Hearts game and left the dance club, that's when things started picking up. I figured Morgan to be a bit plain at first and eventually build up his character to be cool, but after the hotel and the house party with the clown... let's just say, Morgan became a very dark character.

There's a whole lot of crazy going on in the book and a hilarious memory triggered of Arnold Schwarzenegger in the movie Junior.

I would love to see another book in this series, but if not; this is an awesome stand-alone story.

The narrator did a great job providing different voices to the characters.

If you want to listen to a super erotic, dark, sometimes funny LitRPG book, this is definitely it.

Digital playground more like it

the good, the bad and inconsequential

good:
semi crunchy LITrpg, we hear stat gains, but the sheet is absent most of the book so prepare for tracking them in your head if you want.
well written characters in an interesting setting...
OP MC as it should be when reading harem stories

and the narration was out of this world...
in this desensitizing era it takes a lot to get me going, but Anneliese managed to get my blood flowing a time or two...
not to mention her ability to differentiate characters...

the bad:
at times it seemed like there had been two different authors on this project or it had been put away for a time and writing style changed before returning...
the meta plot and ending felt rushed where as the start and middle had a relaxed pace

inconsequential:
the game type portrayed here made me reinstall The Sims :)

Digital hearts

Ready Player One meets Penthouse Forums. It was entertaining, probably won’t be winning any literary awards. Narration was on point. 6/10 would listen again.

quite the hilarious romp!

I really liked this audio book. It is fast paced and non-linear. I loved the characters. A bunch of loons. I highly recommend this book. Now for the obligatory: "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review." "I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator.”

Different and awesome

I received this book for free at my request but the opinion is of my own. Morgan and his friends are great at battle trying to earn credits to better their lives until one day they get an invite to a secret game that is of life and romance. Soon they find themselves caught up in a lot more than they expected. Will they accomplish their goals or will the game they figured would be a vacation turn into something else.

Digital Hearts With Weird Late Night Ambitions

Digital Hearts Late Night Ambitions is kind of weird. It has a little bit of everything. The story revolves around three friends in a total emergence digital game. The everything consists of serial killers, bloodshed, sex, friendship, house decorating and town building. The story is slightly convoluted at times, but not boring. The narration is very good.
I was given a free copy of the book at my request for an honest review.

Dark Sims Epicness

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

If the Sims,American Psycho,HP Lovecraft and Ready Player One all got together and had a love child, this would be it! The narrator did a good job with this book.

lude, crude, and epic

I'm not one that generally enjoys a lot of detailed sex in what I read. But, this story was well crafted an dkept me listening for more. It took a little to get used to the amount of graphic sex in it. But, it was easy to get over through out it.

the MC, Morgan, is an interestinf character that throughout the book is in a fight with his inner self. Crafted in a way that I enjoyed, since we all have our own inner demons.

supporting characters were intriguing in their own right and keeps you on your toes while you try to figure out their motives.

in the end, the end was worth the wait as the author hints at an entire other world within.

narration was well done, and characters all had their own voice.

i received this as a free copy, but my opinion is of my own free will
