SERIES IS GETTING BETTER - NARRATION IS NOT

I like the premise of this series, so far, but the narration just might keep me from continuing with it. The narration is stilted and in some parts I could not separate different individual's portion of a conversation, most males sounded the same and female voices were ridiculous. I don't believe GJ was the best person for the narration of this series as there are so many different voices that need to be differentiated. It really is too bad.

As for the storyline, I believe, after having listened to Book #1 also, that it is getting better and character development, however slow, is also getting better. I don't like, though, that the villain (Gabriel) is the star of the show and is much more described that anyone else.

I love werewolves, suspense, drama, etc. but I think HK-W needs to step up her game.

Not as Good as the First Book.

The female protagonist in this installment is a twit. To take such abuse from a teacher? No way!! Despite others voiced concern she makes excuses. Then along comes Cole using the same techniques under the guise of love? /facepalm. This book left a lot to be desired, the ending if you want to call it that, leaves many unresolved issues. I hope the next book leaves out the SM/bondage crap. The healer leaving on the motorcycle really caught my fancy, I will get the next book just to see what her story will turn out to be.

okay experience better then the first book

Would you listen to The Strip again? Why?

Might listen to this again. The series is starting to pick up the pace but for some reason this narrator just drags for me. I can see him doing another story better or maybe it's the director. I'm still on the fence if I'll try other in the series.

Good continuation - I luv these wolves

Firstly, I love the BBW series, I like the plots which are unusual, with some twists, great characters and come on, who wouldn't like a handsome werewolf to take home. Now the but - I didn't think this was as good as the 1st book in the series - that's my only complaint - well that and they could be a bit 'hotter'.

I liked the narrator too.

Worth my credit? Definitely.

Brutal aspects that will disturb some

This book has lots of action and a very strong Heroine. However, it also contains lots of violence and even scenes of torture. Anyone that is sensitive to scenes that contain violence against women should skip this series. There is even a scene where the Heroine invites a physical struggle with her chosen lover. It is done, I believe, as a way to parallel the characters, that are ware wolves, with the mating rituals of the animal world. Be that as it may, it will likely upset a sensitive soul. In these books, there is little time dedicated to the romantic aspects, of the story, so if that’s what you enjoy, choose a different paranormal series.

Wow, I am hooked!

This series is really complex. The women in the series overlap in the progression of the tale. Can't wait to start the next one. I think the narrator is doing a fine job as well. Those accents are authentic enough for me!

A Real Suprising Series

This series as been a very enjoyable surprise so far. In this installment, Cole and Charley are the main characters, but its a continuation from the first book in the over all story line. I am glad to see Cole find his true dormant and to get the rest of his story. I found Cole to be an interesting character in the first book as well. Charley's story is a real surprise as well! Very good action and I loved all the "little" secrets that are being revealed with each book. But there are still a lot of stories to be told and secrets to be revealed. I hope you enjoy this series as much as I do.

Love the Big Bad Wolf series

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, this is a wonderful series if you enjoy shapeshifters/werewolves!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Strip?

I can't pick just one moment.............I know it sounds lame but I really enjoyed Malcom and Charlies struggle. Malcom had given up on happiness until Charlie so its nice to see the bad guy or supposed bad guy redeem himself and find love.

What about Gildart Jackson’s performance did you like?

I love his accent

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I did laugh at the sceens between Lilly and Malcom!

Any additional comments?

This book does have some steamy sex sceens!
