I Can't Get Enough

So far there's not a negative thing to say about this series. It has completely sucked me in and left me impatiently waiting for the next. It's been awhile since I jumped into a series and by book three still felt completely enthralled. This author continues to up the bar. It's really refreshing.

In the beginning it appears our star-crossed lovers are doomed, but neither gives up the fight despite everything against them. This is the kind of romance novel I live for. Beyond that, I love the fact that our heroine is intelligent and never stops using her brain despite the odds. With every boulder thrown in their path Bronwyn stops to think about it, talk through it with Lucian, and determine the best course of action FOR THEM BOTH. She is as physically driven as he is yet she stops to consider the situation and find answers to solving their predicament instead of running away, pouting, and waiting for him to fix things. I love a heroine with a real brain and a pair of her own. I also loved how the author doesn't pretty up their physical attraction, but leaves it raw and inciting. Their love talk is a total turn on. It may be too x-rated for some, but completely fits the attitude of the main characters. Give me mmmmoooorrrrreeee.

I loved the way Lucian understood his fate, but didn't really give in to it. He recognized his love for Bronwyn and was willing to fight for whatever time they had with each other. I teared up when he told her he wanted whatever time they had, but would end his life when the change finally came. He couldn't bear having her know him as any other man than hers. You gotta love it!

The sub-plots were equally as engrossing. I can't wait to hear more about Sin's future and Dillon's future. I hope they are books in the making. This author knows how to capture an audience and I wholly look forward to how she continually builds her world.

THIS SERIES TICKS ALL MY BOXES

This time it was Lucian and Bronwyn's story and what a story it was - a bitter-sweet doomed romance that had Lucian sacrificing himself rather than giving in to the Breeding Male's base instincts. The plot is richly filled with interesting characters both past and present and the whole thing comes together to make a delicious paranormal romance tale.

Tavia Gilbert knocks it out of the park, as usual, with her brilliant narration techniques.

I'm looking forward to Dillon and Gray's story in Eternal Beast [book 4] which is out in August and I hope Ms Wright doesn't stop there but is melting her keyboard right now on book 5 and even 6 coz her fans just can't get enough of this series.

Worth my credit? Yes definitely, in my opinion, a credit well spent.

Better than the 1st two books!

Love the way these 2 were so feisty together and the chemistry is off the charts hot! Well, Lucian made it hot! So much better than books one and two (didn't like book 2!!) and although I was a bit worried where the author was going to take this, I was relieved and grateful she didn't take it too dark. They were faithful to each other to the end and might I say......what an ending!!! I actually got teary eyed. Kinda wished tho that there was more about the 1st time Lucian met his baby girl. Definitely more sex in this one than the 1st two but wow....juat wow! There is also about 5 different POV's which irritate and bore me but still throughly loved Lucian and his "princess" POV best. Of course, this narrator is my favorite. She nails it on the men voices as well as accents from French to the island of Scotland!!

Wow

Ok, this series is crazy. I’m so glad I found it and didn’t think any of them would compare to the first, but this one was so raw and at times painful to listen to. The emotion was at times too much for me and I had to take a break. It was really good though. I know I will listen to this series again once I’m done. Hopefully Grey and D’s story is just as good.

So far, this is my favorite book of the series. I love the struggle and strong emotions going on in this book. Very steamy as well!! Tavia Gilbert does a fantastic job narrating & I love how Lucian's accent changes. Can't wait to start the next book!

Good but not Great

This story is more like a 3.75. It's HOT, so it's only for those, like myself, who don't mind explicit language. Though it's not chock full of sex scenes, nor or they gratuitous or repetitive, IMO. The sex scenes are also sensual and not just raw. So there's a level of romance that's yummy. Another good aspect of the book is it's thoroughness and depth within the storyline, which created a significant degree of realism and logic in this paranormal tale. Also, though I've listened to other books in this series, I don't think it's necessary to in order to enjoy this book. The narrator did a good job, especially with the British & Scottish accents, but there was little difference among the male voices and among the female voices. Still, it didn't detract from the story. It's just that the story was good but not memorable. You are left with a bit of a cliffhanger to spur us to get the next story, but you do know what happens in the end to the main characters in this story. So that's good.

Definitely Best in the Series... Won't disappoint!

The series explores the lives of the Roman brothers, how they find/secure their life mates, and combat "the order" and the evil Cruen. The first installment, Eternal Hunger, was fairly well-developed and entertaining. The story line puts an interesting twist on the many paranormal romance stories out there.

The romantic story in Eternal Hunger (Book 1) and Eternal Kiss (Book 2) are tantalizing, but both books pale in comparison to Eternal Captive (Book 3). The chemistry and 'scenes' between Bronwyn and Lucian are so well described and beguiling that it'll draw you back to re-read/listen. Found the unexpected language quite alluring!

Gilbert acts the story out quite well. Found Eternal Beast (Book 4) to be my least favorite to date.
