Publisher's summary

Paen Scott is a Dark One: a vampire without a soul. And his mother is about to lose hers too if Paen can't repay a debt to a demon by finding a relic known as the Jilin God in five days. Half-elf Samantha Cosse may have gotten kicked out of the Order of Diviners, but she's still good at finding things, which is why she just opened her own private investigation agency. Paen is one of Sam's first clients and the only one to set her elf senses tingling, which makes it pretty much impossible to keep their relationship on a professional level. Sam is convinced that she is Paen's Beloved - the woman who can give him back his soul...whether he wants it or not.

The formula is getting a little boring

Would you be willing to try another book from Katie MacAlister? Why or why not?

I'm taking a break from MacAlister for a while. She finds a formula and goes with it, but after a few iterations of the formula it gets a little boring. I also really struggle with her "falling in love in a week" theme in every single book. Sure, they are supernatural beings and completely unrealistic, but even that fast of a romance is unrealistic.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

I have heard this lady read other books and I need to remember that she sounds like she is holding her nose. It's not the best.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No.

Meh

I just couldn’t get into it. I’m glad it came with the romance package and I did not spend a credit on this book. The dialogue was annoying and/or lame half the time, the story line was predictable and the I found the narrator’s voice for the boyfriend terrible and a turn off.

Pain is stubborn

Pain is a lovable stubborn character. I love his Scottish accent and his wit. Like I said before Katie MacAlister is sure to make you laugh and you will fall in love with Pain.
