Sweet, Steamy, With A Little Angst

I received this audio in exchange for an honest review, but actually requested to listen after reading all the positive reviews, especially Pam's. It's another sweet, steamy story with some angst between the H/h. Due to the length, it was easy to listen to in one sitting.

Some spoilers;
Somnus the God of Dreams has been grieving for centuries. He lost the love of his life, and blames himself for not being able to save her. He's vowed to never love again or to take a human as a mate....even if they are destined to be together. But when he meets Lailia, he cannot deny the attraction and chemistry between them. Lailia can feel the pull between them as well; however, she has a condition that causes pain, and prevents her from wanting to get intimate with anyone. Being the God of Dreams, Somnus slips unintentionally into one of Lailia's dreams which turns into a nightmare, and now he's afraid he will hurt Lailia and refuses to go around her. The other Gods sees how being part from Lailia is affecting Somnus, so they secretly help Somnus out. When Somnus can no longer deny his feelings for Lailia, he visits, but when the visions of the dream come true, he is horrified at what he has done. He leaves Lailia's place in such a rush, she never had time to explain what really happened. It's not until the meddling Gods take action again, for Somnus to learn the truth.

It's always a pleasure to listen to Kai and Wen narrate. They deliver on all the emotions and tones, and I especially love how they narrate their perspective male/female roles.

Book 2

What made the experience of listening to Somnus' Love the most enjoyable?


I love this book 2 in Nicole's "A Roman God Romance" series. I have listened to book 1 'Cupid's Heart', and have to listen before "A Love for Somnus" as it's set 2 years after book 1.

Good Story

What did you love best about Somnus' Love?

The interaction between Somnus, Hercules, and Cupid

What did you like best about this story?

The way Hercules went out of his way to ensure that Somnus and Layla would find love.

What about Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross ’s performance did you like?

Both were very good and did a wonderful job with each character.

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

I would not.

Any additional comments?

This was a good second story in the series and I even enjoyed the end which is the beginning of Hercules' story.

No spoilers here!!!

Layla "a human" want's to be loved but has a condition that prevents her from pursuing it.
Somnus "the God of dreams" never want's to fall in love again.
His fear of loss has him conflicted about taking another chance.
Finding a way to concure the things that hold these lover's back is a challenge that requires plenty of love.

If you haven't listened to Cupid's heart I would buy it first.
The characters and story line from that book spill over into this book.
These book's are sweet, erotic, Sexy, goodness..
Somnus is not a tipical love story, it's much more with a melting pot of very intertaining characters.

Wen and Kai gave a great performance as usual.
These narrator's act so well I honestly think they could read the phone book and make it entertaining 😉.
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review..
So credit worthy???
Ohhh yeah!! I Know I'm going to keep listening..

Gods Romance!!

This book is about Greek God . It’s a sizzling hot erotic book. The narrator does an awesome job distinguishing between the characters. I listen to a few of Nicole Garcia books and as always well written and very imaginative. I enjoyed greatly listening to Nicole‘s books and recommend as a must listen!

A Story of the God's

Somnus the God of Sleep finds his mate but the fact that she's human may pose a problem... A few deep dark secrets come to the light which makes it rather interesting... but in the end you can't help who you fall in love with ❤️❤️❤️😀

LOVE Somnus

Once again Nicole Garcia manage to envolve me in a great story.

I really enjoyed Somnus's story, it was so heartwarming and steamy I may say.

I must say that there were times when I wanted to shake Somnus and make him see some sense because of hiw stubborn he was, I mean he gave great advices to Cupid when he was in the same situation with Valentina but Somnus didn't follow his own advices...

I loved Laila she was a nice character that knew what she wanted and didn't back up.

And Hercules he is so funny and such a good friend not caring about breaking the rules if that means his friends could be happy.

The narration was great as it always is with Wen and Kai as narrators, they make the perfect voices for each character and make the book really enjoyable to listen ❤

Brilliantly written, great performances.

This is such a great series, I’m enjoying it so much. It really brings the ancient gods well and truly into this day and age. Written so well, even with a sensitive subject. Well done Nicole.

Somnus

What did you like best about this story?

Somnus. Sigh, So glad i listened to this book. finally Somnus found his true love. He needed it. When i was listening to cupids story, all i could think about was, god Somnus needs a book. He needs something good in his life.
Somnus had his heart broken once upon a time and didn't think he would ever find a true love again. but then he met Lailani. they met at the hospital when cupid and Val had there son. and there was attraction from the beginning. Ofcours Hercules wants to help get them together, and he really does a good job i think. But his dad has other opinions on that.
This book builds up to a (i hope) fantastic story about Hercules that i cant wait to start.
So again thank you Nicole for your amazing talent. it only gets better and better

Always a good time!

Nicole Garcia continues her Roman God romance series with Somnus, and he is just so broken and lovable! We learn of his past love, and how he feels now..in comes Lailani or Laila as she is called. Right away, the connection is strong...but wait! She is human(with her own set of issues)...he is a God! Will there love be able to grow? We get to see Cupid and his son Kane, as well as my favorite, Hercules(I cannot wait for his story). The trio finds out things from the past and hurdles that need to be overcome as well as having the budding romance between Laila and Somnus. Nicole Garcia is able to pack a lot in to her stories with well developed themes and characters, a must listen!

Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross give the perfect narration. Kai is perfect for the sweet Laila, making you feel compassion for her situation, and Wen is the most incredible voice for a God. This team is always the perfect listen.
