Great Box Set

The three stories in this boxed Set were so good. The story lines were easy to follow and the steaminess and sizzle were amazing. I was given this audio set and voluntarily leave a review, however I will go back and purchase more of Lisa Carlisle' books, the were really good. The narrators did a wonderful job, completely made me fall into the story.

Vamps

This is a fantastic series and highly recommend this audiobook. I have some of these in books from ECave. I didn’t get to purchase all of them. I think that was when first printed. Lisa is one of my favorite authors. All of her books are wonderfully written and very entertaining. I love paranormal with gargoyles, dragons and werewolf’s being my favorites. Narrators did a fantastic job on this set.

Books 1-3

Vamps contains the books Cursed, Smolder and Fire.
Cursed is the lead up to this series and whilst short you get let hanging and wanting more from this book. Lucan makes a major mistake which now he and his brothers must also pay for.
Smolder and we meet Michel the Vampire and Nike a firefighter who likes to party at Vamps after work. But with Michel having old enemies life for this couple isn’t going to be easy. Nike finds herself caught in the middle of all of it.
Fire we get to meet Maya again who is Nike’s best friend and also a firefighter and Tristan a witch and the new owner of Vamps. Their story as the title states is full of fire, Maya is the spark to Tristan’s fire.
Each book is not quiet complete in my opinion we do get snippets of the other couples as the series moves on. So I suggest it is best to listen/read this series from the start.

Vamps is a paranormal night Club.

I have read a lot of Lisa Carlisle books and they are always exciting and entertaining, leaning towards forever mates and the journey to get there. I like these protective men, their attitude towards women and how they deal with their challenges. I have the audible copy too and really like the narration, well done!

Underground Encounters - collection

A great collection including: Cursed, Smolder and Fire. I loved how each of these had their own unique storylines and characters but still tied together in the underground club VAMP. Narration was wonderfully done - I especially enjoyed the dual narration in Fire.
Cursed - was a great read but left me with more questions than answers - but overall there was a lot of character growth.
Smolder - the heat turns up both in character chemistry and in reality with a fire that is the beginning and the end of so much. Great action and suspense and of course steamy chemistry.
Fire - is a great addition to this series. VAMP is back and some would say better than ever. With a new owner and a new ability and love interest is discovered.

I love the character crossovers - especially in Smolder and Fire and hope there is more to come in this series. Love the well written balance of steam and storyline which. Storylines are unique and captivating as are the characters themselves. Well written and well narrated!

this book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review

My kind of Club

Vampz is the kind of place where you can a sexy vampire, a beautiful witch, and a chiseled gargoyle all in one night. It kept me on the edge of my seat. This book has three stories in one, so there's something for every one to love. Who will you choose???

Great way to binge "read" these books

I received a free copy of this audio box set from the author. I own the ebooks.


Cursed
The introductory story of how the three gargoyle brothers ended up as semi-permanent stone when one of them rejected a witch’s love. They are only able to move if there is someone in danger and then only for 24 hours. It also explains how they end up as guardians in a nightclub. Short story.
Smolder

Nike and her best friend go out for a Halloween night of dancing at a club that caters to those who don't quite fit in with everyone else. When Nike sees the man she has been crushing on and he actually talks to her, she is in heaven. Unfortunately, the man has enemies, really really old enemies who have been looking for him. An explosion, a fire, a fight between ancient beings - and Nike is caught in the middle.

Fire

Maya returns to the nightclub where she and Nike always went dancing on their nights off from the firehouse. She hasn't seen the club, or her best friend, since the night of the explosion and fire. It is now under new management and when the new owner catches sight of Maya on the dance floor he is astonished that she is surrounded by light. He is so used to only seeing the darkness in people that he knows he must meet this woman. As they grow closer they must share secrets that could mean the end of their relationship or the beginning of something beautiful.

I thought some of the "feelings" in this story were a little too much. The way Tristan went off when Maya admitted she had kissed another man was a little over the top. He had just broken up with her after all.

Vamps

I really enjoyed the narrators. They did a great job. The stories were really good as well. I was upset to begin with because I thought this set was about the gargoyle brothers and them finding their mates. However, that was my bad for not paying better attention. The first story is about how the brothers were cursed and ended up guardians at Vamps. It was involved and The characters were developed well.
The second one is about Michel finding his mate. I enjoyed it but I felt like to much happened to fast. Nike is a firefighter which i thought waa cool when you consider vampires going up in smoke and all that jazz. It just seemed to easy. They are a cool couple and there's an HEA I just didn't enjoy this one as much as the others I've read.
The third is about Tristan finding his mate. When Tristan meets Maya he can't resist her but he also can't make himself give in 100%. They are opposites who come together and find something amazing with each other. They are both well developed characters with intriguing backgrounds and there's a lot of fire and passion in the story. One thing I really enjoy about the series as a whole is they are all standalones but some familiar folks pop up here and there. They don't have to be read in order.
I received a free audible copy and I'm voluntarily leaving an honest review.

Excellent boxset! Excellent narrations!!

Vamps: An Underground Encounters Boxset, AUDIOBOOK by Lisa Carlisle was a sassy, steamy, well-written boxset containing three stories.

First is Cursed, this story was an unusual and engrossing story about gargoyles, vampires, and a myriad of otherworldly creatures! There are three Danton, Lucan, and Mattias…they’re cursed to remain stone…but, can that change? Excellent, enjoyable, unexpectedly intriguing story!!!

Next is Smolder, is the story of Michel and Nike. He’s the owner of Vamps and she is a climber. He sets his sights on her…and things spiral!!!

Finally, there is Fire, the story of Tristan and Maya. He’s the sullen new owner of Vamps who is surrounded by darkness. She is the impulsive firefighter who has secret abilities of her own.

The first two stories were narrated by Bridget Bordeaux, who did an fabulous job of performing the story. She captured the characters perfectly!

Fire was narrated by Amber Lee Connors and Kieran Flitton. It can be tough to start with a new narrator in a series, but these two did a great job!!! I especially liked Amber’s interpretation of the characters! Great performances by all!!!

I am volunteering to leave a review for an Advance Reader Copy of this Audiobook.

Very enjoyable

Underground Encounters is a steamy paranormal romance series. With each book, Lisa Carlisle's stories and characters become more interesting and entertaining. The vamps box set contains three books Cursed, Smolder, and Fire. The storylines are delightful and hot with fascinating characters. The narration is superb. All three narrators portray the characters very nicely, bringing them to life. This was an enjoyable and steamy audiobook.

Excellent box set

Cursed

Great start to this series. It really puts the whole series in order. Good characters, great narration.

Smoulder

I must say that I don’t think I’ve read any books with so must action in them. It’s non stop action from start to finish. It’s very refreshing. Excellent narration.

Fire

This book has a great storyline. I love the characters, Tristan is a little arrogant but I’ll forgive him that as he is fire in bed!! Fantastic performance from both Amber and Kieran.

Such An Enjoyable Bos Set

This Box Set is one of my favourites, I love the mixture of Vampires, Witches and Gargoyles brought together in such exciting and unique stories.

CURSED - Tells the tale of three Gargoyle shifter brothers who were cursed by a witch and the reason why the witch cursed Lucan and his two brothers. Lucan and his brothers tried to find the witch, but it proved impossible. Whilst searching they met Michael, a Vampire, he offered them a job in his supernatural club north of Boston.

The curse meant that they were forever trapped within their stone forms unable to move or shift at will. They discovered by chance that if someone needed their help they were able to shift and would remain free in their human forms for 24 hours.

The story was interesting and set the scene for when Michel a vampire acquaintance of theirs decides to open a nightclub in America and asks them to go with him as bouncers/bodyguards inside the club. The brothers decide to go as there is more chance of their help being needed there than in their quiet village in France. The nightclub in question is Vamps.

I liked the characters and the storyline.

SMOLDER - This is Nike's story which starts in the Gothic Night Club Vamps. I loved this hot, steamy sexy story the club's name is just perfect for the story! Nike, named after a Greek God and not the sporting brand, is a female firefighter who loves to hang out at this club which is more than it seems. Every chance she and her friend Maya get they go there to relax and dance off the strain of their demanding jobs.

She is approached at the bar by an incredibly sexy man she recognises from her rock climbing club and decides to take a chance and be alone with him. It turns out that he owns the club and several other ventures but before they have a chance to get to know each other better the club is bombed and she and Maya help with the evacuation. Whilst this is happening Michele is fighting with the two cloaked figures who attacked his bar. He and Nike managed to get away from them but for how long?

It's great to have such a strong and determined female lead in a story. I NEVER give spoilers so if you have read the 'blurb' there's not much more I can say without giving things away - except that this is a very quick well-written story which I would gladly have given a higher score if I could.

FIRE - This one tells Maya's story, Nike's friend from Smoulder. I loved the two main characters Maya Winters and Tristan Stone. The chemistry in this particular book is off the charts, it's sooooo hot (perfect for a book called Fire)! The characters are so good together, they both have secrets she may be a fire-fighter but she also has a hidden edge which helps her do her job. Whilst Tristan is a witch, who comes from an old Salem family, but he thinks the talents he has inherited are more of a curse than anything else.

In this book, Vamps has been sold by Michel to Tristan who has rebuilt and revamped the club making it his own. Tristan may own the club but he doesn't frequent it, his curse makes doing so difficult but one night he sees Maya and is drawn to her, the feeling is mutual, but will they be able to make a relationship work? Will they trust each other with their secrets especially as what they have together is too good to let it go.

I really enjoyed this story, I enjoyed the flow of the storyline, the characters, the chemistry and the writing style.

I own each of these books individually in their eBook and audio formats and am voluntarily writing this review on a series I can not recommend highly enough, anyone who is a fan of this genre will love this Box Set.

I was given this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.
