This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

When Vicky accidentally slides into the side of a polar bear, she doesn't expect to fall in love. It turns out that the polar bear is a man. A sexy man. A man who growls, roars, and does everything he can to chase her away. Only to come back.

Gene has only one thing on his mind - revenge - until Vicky crashes into his life. After the pain and betrayal he suffered in the war, all he wants is vengeance against the brothers who left him behind. But he's confused when instead of wanting to punish him for his evil acts, they offer him forgiveness.

As if that weren't annoying enough, the cutest geek he ever met won't leave him alone. Or, more accurately, he can't seem to stop following her. And it isn't just because someone is out to hurt her. He wants her. But does he want her more than vengeance?

Love the story, not so sure about the narrator

So this is billed as the anti-hero romance. I disagree, he is flawed but by no means the opposite of a hero. He will deny being a good guy, but actions do not lie.

First, a bit of annoyance, I read this immediately after the last book that had a line about Gene trying to avoid a human trying to tag his bear. However, this book starts with them not knowing each other. It is a small constancy thing that annoyed me greatly.

Gene is all gruff and grumpy damaged bear. Sigh, yeah he had me at hello! I do love the damaged bears who are all Alpha. He has been working on being a villain, turns out he cannot fight his nature, he is a hero to the core. OMG, love his nickname and how he uses it constantly!! PIMA <3

Vicky is very shy and reserved and not at all a tough chick. She is totally endearing and the perfect match for Gene. HE needs someone to care for and she needs his strength to bring her out of herself. I really think they are one of favorite couples in the whole series.

The smexy stuff is delicious and ever so hawt!! Love it! Have ice cream and a cold shower ready!!

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Chandra Skyye, who does very well on the narrative potions of the book. Where I did not enjoy her was the dialogue for the two leads. She tries to go too low and gruff with Gen’s voice and far to nasal and whiny for Vicky. Often she comes off sounding immature because of the narration. This is really too bad, because Ms Skyye has great pace and energy for the other parts of the read. I am not sure how I feel about having her continue with the series. I think she has a great voice, just not enjoying all her artistic choices.

Please let the rest of the series come to audio ASAP!! I can not wait for Brody, so yummy I think!! It is also getting very intriguing with this super secret evil foe!

*** I hope this review was useful to you and helped your decision to read or not read this book. I love reading and sharing my opinions with other readers. I listen at double speed; all my impressions of the narration are from that setting. Thanks for taking the time to read my review!

melodramatic

the narrator did a decent job, but the H and h was just both too much woe is me. the Hero even said he disliked drama, just before his inner monologue of woe started up. to show a lack of self-knowledge maybe?
could not get past the first couple of chapters.

Like the story, not a fan of the narrator

Overall I really like the series, however, I am not a fan of the narrator for this book. The main female character comes off as very ditzy and meek (very annoying!), while the voice for the main male character makes him sound kinda slow.

Not keen on the voices used for the characters

Enjoyable listening but I did have to speed up the narration a bit. Great book to read but audible narrator is not my cup of tea. Cannot pinpoint why as her diction is clear but I think it is the way she changes the character voices. They do not sound like I expect them too. BOOK REVIEW 4.5 stars. This looks like becoming another great series by this author. Once again Eve has written another fun, interesting new series set in Alaska. This time we have a set of mismatched shifters that all served in the military together. I kid you not, a moose, a fox, bears, (polar and grizzly) and more. Reid is the alpha and boss and has just about had enough of everything going wrong, but when he has to make an insurance claim his life will never be the same. Enter Tammy, the insurance investigator who believes he is making a false claim. Loved the carry on between these two. Once again laugh out loud moments. This looks like becoming another great series by this author.

We love this villain!

This is the book that redeems the villain of the first 2 books. Gene is on a mission of revenge until he meets a nerdy human who loves polar bears and is a pain in his a**. I loved this book, and Gene all through the story. I got the warm and fuzzies and Gene was allowed back into his pack so he could have his friends back and the life he deserved. Vicky is hilarious and the perfect heroine for Gene.

Good but...

The narration was getting on my nerves but the story was good. Not sure if I'll get the next story in the series if the same person is reading.
