Publisher's Summary

True love: good from the first bite….

Etienne Argeneau’s 300 years of bachelorhood were at an end. Either that, or he’d be forever alone. He could only turn one human in his lifetime, and most of his kind created a life mate. If he turned this stranger…. But what choice did he have? He had to help Rachel Garrett. The beautiful coroner had saved his life. To save hers, he would make her immortal.

To the last....

Rachel Garrett awoke surprised. All she’d wanted was to get off the night shift in the morgue; now here she was staggering to her feet naked and in a strange place. But everything would be alright. She’d just make like a bat out of.... Then she saw the man of her dreams emerging from his…coffin? And the look in his bright silver eyes said they’d be spending a lot of time together. She just hoped he tasted as good as he looked.

    "This book Bites"

    I don't normally do reviews, but this book was so lame I actually feel responsible to do so. From page one it was cheesy and completely predictable. The characters were somewhat interesting, but the story line was SO weak I wanted to bail at least a dozen times. Since its review/rating was 4 stars, I gave the author the benefit of the doubt and hung in there hoping for some incredible ending. My mistake.

    "Don't Bother--Not Even When It Is On Sale!"

    I cannot stand stupid people! The characters in this book were stupid! I didn't buy any of this story. A guy named Pudge wants to become a vampire and stalks the idiot hero. Girl gets killed trying to save a corpse--also known as the Hero. Pudge finds a way to break into the hero's home and kidnaps heroine. This book was unbelievable story that seems to just been written to pump out a book. This was not funny or entertaining! I know this won't help many decide whether to read or not--take my advice. Save your money. Other books have better plots and better stories. One pet peeve--Why does it need an epilogue? Others will say, why did you read it? In my family, you always finish the book! Always!

    Story
    "Yay they changed the narrator!"
    What made the experience of listening to Love Bites the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed the narrator in this one so much more than I did in A Quick Bite, the first book in the Argenau Vampires series. She had passion in her reading. None of the monotone I was forced to endure with the first book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Love Bites?

    When Etienne saves Rachel after she saves him.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Much better than it did in the first book, though the voice she used for Etienne, the main male character, made him sound kind of slow and unattractive… Maybe even a little bit dumb at times. That was probably my biggest complaint about the narrator. I loved all her other voices for the other characters just not Etienne's.


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

    I did listen to it all in one sitting… But that was not because the book was so compelling I couldn't help myself, it was because I was doing something that took long enough for the book to finish.


    Any additional comments?

    Regardless of what the narrator did or didn't do with this book, it is well worth reading in its written form. This is a great series!

    "Better narrator but ..."

    The story is delightful, great fun, and exciting, and the narrator is much better than in "A Quick Bite." But one is spoiled with so many terrific narrators out there that one with weak characterization spoils a great story. Ms Dawe did get much better in the last few chapters. She will probably develop with more practice.

    Story
    "Light paranormal romance"

    Setting: Los Angeles contemporary
    Genre: Paranormal romance
    This was a story about a vampire being hunted unsuccessfully by an unstable person, and a woman who was turned into a vampire against her will. The sanity-impaired guy keeps trying to kill Etienne who in a couple of instances shows up at the morgue for post-mortem examination. He heals himself before Rachel, the coroner on duty, can cut him in both cases. In the second episode, she saves her recently revived patient by taking an axe in the chest. She's dying quickly, so Etienne decides to change her into a vampire. The story revolves around catching the murderous flake, and Rachel dealing with her vampirism. There was no nail-biting suspense, but there were a few laughs. I did get pissed off at Rachel, because she was all up in arms about being changed against her will. What? She'd rather have bled out on the floor of the morgue? The story here was a high average if you like a light paranormal romance. Dracula this is not, so skip it if that is your preference.
    The narration brought this to the high in average. Angela Dawe is uneven in her performances. Some are good, some not so much. This was one of the good ones.
    In regards to this series, I do wish they'd find a good narrator and stick with her (or him) throughout. Ah well, that's not to be the case...

    "Etienne & Rachel were entertaining"


    I like this one on audio about the same as reading it. This book is light and fluffy so it was easy and smooth. The Blurb is pretty accurate about how Etienne Argeneau found his lifemate in Rachel Garrett.

    This 300 year old vampire met his match in the Night shift coroner and it was an entertaining journey. I will slowly make my way through this series

    "Take a bite into this book, you wont regret it :)"
    Where does Love Bites rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's well worth a credit. I've read this book many times and now bought it in audio form and quite enjoyed it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love how Lynsay Sands writes w/ a since of humor. Love the characters.


    What about Angela Dawe’s performance did you like?

    She wasn't amazing but better than most I've listened to.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Love really Bites (Wink, Wink)
