New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Gena Showalter ignites a thrilling new paranormal series with this breathtaking tale of a warrior enslaved by desire, and the woman who frees his soul.
The Sweetest Temptation...
Black ops agent Solomon Judah awakens caged and bound in a twisted zoo where otherworlders are the main attraction. Vika Lukas, the owner’s daughter, is tasked with Solo’s care and feeding. The monster inside him yearns to kill her on sight, even though she holds the key to his escape. But the human side of him realizes the beautiful deaf girl is more than she seem - she’s his.
The ultimate price....
Vika endures the captives’ taunts and loathing, hoping to keep them alive even if she can’t free them. Only, Solo is different - he protects her. But as hostility turns to forbidden romance, his feelings for her will be used against him...and he’ll be put to a killer test.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I read Gena's dark lords series and a lot of her other stuff. This is book is not her typical good read. It's boring slow and predictable. This book was trite and I'm sorry I wasted my time and credit on it.

I love Gena Showalter, but this book was "meh" - average and slow. The hero, Solomon, had a lot of potential - a big, strong, unusual assassin, with a tortured but good soul. The heroine, Vika, put up with an abusive father her whole life, yet she remains kind and sweet. I kept waiting for the chemistry, but the book just never "took off." It was very slow - I actually speed up the book to 1.25x to get through it. I kept waiting for the book to really capture my attention, but it never did. I had to force myself to finish it. Showalter's books have so much potential, but when they fall short, it is frustrating, as the story lines and characters always have potential. Despite my disappointment, I'll listen to the next book in the series, as the other potential heroes have real potential, and when Showalter is good, she is great.

It sounded so promising. An otherworlder (Solomon) captured and imprisoned in an evil circus with a beautiful deaf woman (Vika) taking care of him. I just knew sparks would fly, battles would rage, and they would overcome all types of obstacles as their passions raged.
Meanwhile……..I find myself looking at the time left in the book to see if it’s about over. I usually love Gena’s books. I liked some of it but mainly I want something to happen. Make love, maybe a laugh, a touch of suspense, wild sex, a fierce battle; just quit being so tortured and over thinking things. It’s my personal preference for a book in this genre to have more “chemistry”. Well actually that’s in any book. It’s just one of those books that you are just waiting for it to sweep you into that world and take you away for a while. I never got swept in to anything even though the last hour is pretty good.
I don’t recommend this one. If you follow my reviews and you somewhat agree with them then I believe you’re not going to like this one. This book does contain some mild sexual content at the end but it’s nothing to graphic. Based on this first book I do not think I will get any others in this series. I know this is a first in a series and sometimes they usually explain allot of details about the series but this one didn’t even do that. I really don’t know much about the otherworld race after listening for 10+ hours.

I love Gena Showalter! She has a fantastic mind that can create worlds so amazing and complete... It's amazing. In this first book you don't know where you lay though
.. what year, what's happened, but this is a series based off her other series Alien Huntress... which is also superb. The Lead male role is captured and put on display for a circus which specializes in otherhuman/ other worldly like creatures (people) in which he falls for the daughter of the owner of the circus. She's severely abused by her father and yearns to help the captives but really can't. They form a bond and it does take awhile for the escape to happen but it does. *spoiler alert*. Lol... The emotions are strong, personalities strong, and connection between hero and heroine are beautifully strong. It has action, the feels, depth of characters and the "feel goods" and "what will happen next" emotions we love and crave. Worth a credit... But beware, there's only two books in this series for audible. I also recommend to listen to Alien Huntreas first... And everythijng else by Gena Showalter.... She's just that Amazing
I've always loved Gena Showalter's books. This new series is just as amazing as her Atlantis series and her LOTU series. The narrator is great and has a voice made for reading!
If you could sum up Last Kiss Goodnight in three words, what would they be?
amazing fun exciting!
What did you like best about this story?
the paranormal aspect with real life emotions and the circus and aliens!(otherworlders!)
Have you listened to any of George Newbern’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
No, but I have to say listening to his voice was soothing, and you could depict "voices" from certain characters, easy to follow along with.
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
The story was ok but those irritating references from the Bible by every start of a chapter no thanks
Would you recommend Last Kiss Goodnight to your friends? Why or why not?
No I would not again the references thy get you out of the story line
Which scene did you most enjoy?
The share of hearing parts
Did Last Kiss Goodnight inspire you to do anything?
Any additional comments?
Narrator has a good voice, story is enjoyable but again I got so sick of the Bible references that it took me out of the story. (And I do like the Bible but not in a romance book)
I am a fan of Gena Showalter's Lords of the Underworld series so was looking for any of her books to appear on the Audible UK site. I was happy with both the story and narrator of this audio book. I will definitely be looking for more of this series on Audible.
