Love this book!

When this book came out I read it right away and loved it. So much so, I did a reread within a month, which is unusual for me since my TBR pile is a mile high.

Now that the audiobook is out, I got that right away too even though I am in the middle of a reread of another series. I LOVE that there are dual narrators and that the man is reading all of the male parts. They did a fantastic job bringing the story to life and I can't wait until the next installment.

I 1000% recommend this book, you won't regret it!

Loved this book!

Talk about a breath of fresh air. A female lead who is fun and forward moving. The "monsters" are fabulous while her potential mates are awesome. This book will revive your faith in worthwile female leads. Beware...if tons of sexy time is not your thing this book is not for you. Kind of a cliff hanger...so hoping for the next book very soon.

ehhh I mean...eh

I struggled with this one. I really enjoyed the narration of the back and forth but it never went anywhere. i would almost skip thru chapters bc each were the same thing. I finished the book and thought..ummm thats it...i had higher expectations for sure. my only word for the book is "eh" its ok.

Terrific story

This was an original story. You know how sometimes books feel like there is a formula and just the details were changed? This one didn’t feel like that. I liked that several of the predictions I made early on were incorrect, it kept me engaged and continuing to guess.

The narration was very good, both Lucas Webley and Vanessa Moyen. You could distinguish between the different characters by both voice and personality of not just the main characters but secondary ones as well.

Although there was sex, it wasn’t excessive and didn’t overtake the story.

I would recommend this book, it’s worth the money or credit. Although it didn’t end on a cliffhanger, you know that there will be a continuation to resolve issues. I’m looking forward to it and won’t hesitate to purchase it.

Cute story with a touch of sexiness

The story is about charmed ones. The h is a sin eater, she has friends such as a brownie, a creepy bony guy, a shifter, a berserker, and the Grim Reaper.
Although she doesn't have sex with 3 males at once, they end up as her mates. The conflict of the story is with a coven of witches. The narration was great. It kept things interesting when there wasn't much else going on.

Narrator's SUCKED...and not in a GOOD way.

This furthers my stance that good narration can bring a boring story to life. Alternately, and in the case of Friends w/Monsters, poor narration can sink an amazing story into the labyrinths of Hades.

This dual narration thing didn't work here. The actors were robotic. The male - Lucas Webley - didn't invest in the story at all, basically rattling off his pieces like it's a grocery list. The female - Vanessa Moyen -, too, simply "read". Her forced cat purr thing at the end of each word was cute at first, then it just became cheesy and monotonous. However, HER various characters had their own voices, at least.

Basically, it was painfully like listening to the middle school drama club recite a play for extra credit.

Not invested in these characters enough to grab book 2. It's a really good story. At least I think it would be been. But I'm not reviewing the book version. I'm reviewing the Audible. The only development that grabbed my attention was an encounter from her past near the end, and even that was slated over.

Started off a little confusing to me as I tried to grasp what was going on but it was a epic story. Can’t wait for book two :)

loved it! dual narration is a real treat

I really loved the use of both male & female narrators. i sometimes get frustrated when a male narrator does a female voice because i often think it makes them sound pathetic, when in my head they are kick ass! equally when female narrators try and do alpha male...

Awesome story!

I love the way this book was written, and the voice of Vanessa Moyen never disappoints. Its a steamy book filled with an interesting take on urban horror creatures and the concept of a Sin eater. Loved the book so much, I had to get the audio narration. I would recommend it to anyone who likes reverse harem books that actually have a story to tell.

So good!

I very much enjoyed this. It's one of the best things I've read this year. It's dark and sensual without being overly horrific or causing me to roll my eyes. I will definitely be keeping an eye out for the next book with bated breath.
I think what I liked most about this though was that the monsters weren't romanticized. They were dark and grotesque, scaled and rough around the edges while still being companionable.
Both narrators were great. Given the sample I was worried about the duel narration, as I've not listened to one done like this, but after a while I started to enjoy it.

Loved it

This book was fantastic. It had me wanting to read continuously without putting it down and had me warmed to all the prickly creatures.
I will say the ending left me pretty much screwing up my nose. It just kind of ended, no cliff hanger no compelling reason to read the next book other than a generally good story preceding the ending.
Would have loved a ‘gasp’ kind of moment at the end that left me wondering and excited for the next book. I didn’t get that but all in all the read was great.

Different but good.

This book wasn’t what I expected. It starts off a little confusing but as you get into it’s unexpectedly funny and interesting. The female lead is very sexually aware and confident and there’s plenty of hilarious one liners. This is a Reverse Herron with 3 very sexy love interest. It’s got monsters who visit her as friends, witches, shifters, and more. The narrators where brilliant using different voices and accents for each character. It finishes on a cliff hanger so I’m off to listen to the second book.

Brilliant

I have always seen this book recommended and for some reason I always hesitated getting it. I wish I hadn't. this book is refreshing, funny, sad and a little dark. Loved it. The way it is told, the way Lucas and Vanessa bought this story to life is an absolute credit to the author. So very clever.

5 stars!

The story, for me, was great! It had all the things I enjoy, monsters, a bit if romance and a kick arse female lead!

This is my first audio with duo narration and I absolutely LOVED it! The narrators were amazing! I already love Vanessa Moyen, she knows how to bring the stort alive! AND now I have deeply fallen for Lucas Webley's voice *insert sigh here*

great characters bit flat story

the story had a lot of leaving to do something after sleeping all day only to return in an hour at most and going back go sleep even if the thing wasn't done

the characters were the best part of the book loved how they all felt like seperate people particularly Grim
