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.

Three for one!

Cursed

Gargoyle shifter prequel!

The following ratings are out of 5:
Romance: N/A
Heat/Steam: N/A
Story/Plot: 📕📗📙
World building: 🌏🌍🌎🌍
Character development: 😠😘🤓
Narrator(s): 🎙🎙🎙
Narration Type: Solo Narration

The Hero: Lucan - he was a gargoyle shifter who got involved with a witch, Veronique, against his clans wishes. He thought they were just having some fun, while she took things more seriously. When things went bad, she cursed him and his brothers, Danton and Mattias. They were locked in stone for centuries, only able to come out once in a while to help humans in trouble and only able to stay out for 24 hours at a time.

The Story: Memories of the witch had left the brothers as part of the curse. Lucan wanted revenge against Veronique but couldn’t even remember what she looked like. At some point after years of guarding the Paris streets, they were approached by a vampire named Michel to come to the US and be guards in his goth nightclub called Vamps.

This book is told via solo narration and was narrated by Bridget Bordeaux. She has a good voice though each character sounds pretty much the same, she distinguishes between different people by different accents not changing her voice. I didn’t really like the french accents. The story is only the back story of the three brothers, no romance. The book was good for a prequel with just background story information, though I wish Lucan had a romance, there was the start of Danton’s romance which comes later in the series.

Smolder

Vampires don’t like fire, but firefighters are a different story!

The following ratings are out of 5:
Romance: 💙🤎🖤💜
Heat/Steam: 🔥🔥🔥
Story/Plot: 📕📗📙
World building: 🌏🌍🌎🌍
Character development: 😠😘🤓
Narrator(s): 🎙🎙🎙
Narration Type: Solo Narration

The Hero: Michel - A vampire and the owner of the goth nightclub called Vamps in an artist village near Boston. Vamps is a haven for the supernatural, but also caters to humans. Gargoyle shifters encased in stone are the guardians inside the club, they come alive if a human is in danger.

The heroine: Nike - she is a twenty four year old firefighter who likes to unwind with her friend Maya at Vamps, the underground club that catered to the outsiders. Nike is strong and independent. She has seen some strange things in peoples houses and garages and knows that everyone is strange in their own way which is one reason she loves Vamps.

The Story: Nike has had a crush on Michel for a while. She had seen him at the climbing gym she goes to and had fantasized about him for a while, so when he rescued her and her friend from some unruly men at the club, she was only to happy to have a drink with him and chat. Nike was surprised to find out that Michel owned Vamps and the rock climbing gym.

Like the prequel, this book was told via solo narration and was narrated by Bridget Bordeaux. Like I said before, she has a good voice, but doesn’t have a great range of different voices for different characters. She also speaks pretty fast, I actually had to check to see if I had accidentally turned up the speed on my audible app.

The story was good, though I think Nike was a bit too introspective for so early in a relationship. Granted she got some strange news when finding out that Michel was a vampire, she wasn’t as introspective about that than about the relationship in general. I did like the backstory of how Michel became a vampire and the other vampire who wants vengeance against him.

Fire

Darkness and Light!

Narration Type: Dual Narration

The Hero: Tristan - He is the new owner of Vamps nightclub. This book takes place a year after the previous book and the fire at Vamps. Tristan comes from Salem, Mass and his ancestors are witches and he believes he is cursed, so he stays away from humans despite the fact that he owns the club. He spends most of his time in his lab below the club.

The heroine: Maya - she is the best friend to Nike from Smolder and is also a firefighter who used to spend her free time at the underground nightclub, Vamps. She used to go there with Nike, but stopped when Nike left town and she decides to go back to the club at Halloween a year later.

The Story: Tristan decides to come up from his lab on Halloween to check out the club. He has trouble spending much time in the club because darkness surrounds most people and it drains him to no end. When suddenly he sees a beautiful woman who is surrounded by light. He sees pain in her, and where others’ pain usually drains him, he feels compassion for hers.

This book was told in dual points of view via dual narration, unlike the first two books. I like dual narration so much more than solo narration, so I was happy for the change. It was narrated by Amber Lee Connors and Kieran Flitton. Kieran has a soft but masculine voice which is very pleasant and Amber has a youthful feminine voice that is easy to listen to.

This book is more fleshed out than the previous two books, it didn’t seem to go by so fast and the story was original and interesting. The romance wasn’t as rushed as the last book, it was on a more normal pace with both characters holding things back at the beginning and not completely understanding their connection. The only thing I didn’t like about this one was the amount of time Tristan and Mia spent feeling sorry for themselves.

Mixed thoughts on this

I liked the plot but it really had too many unfinished stories. It sucked me in at first, with the gargoyle brothers then leaves you hanging. No idea what happened to them.

interesting characters

Vamps is an entertaining box set of three paranormal books filled with shifters, witches, vampires, gargoyles and so many more interesting characters. The writing is descriptive and the storylines are unique. If you love anything paranormal with steam, magical twists and great endings then this is definitely for you.

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

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.

Cursed

I absolutely loved these books but was so disappointed that the poor gargoyle had to just gaze at Tracey from afar and did not get to romance her. I wish that the book carried on with hea for all of the gargoyles……

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.
