Audio Review: Nightshifted by Cassie Alexander

Posted May 24, 2013 by Jennifer in Book Review | 3 Comments

  Nightshifted had a kind of slow start for me. It took me about half of the book to really get into the story. But I think the biggest part was due to the narration. Tai Sammons didn’t change her pitch enough so I was confused sometimes as to which character was speaking. I felt like she was just reading the book to me instead of “acting” the story out like some great narrators can do. With that being said I will be listening to the next book, Moonshifted because it’s free through my library and I’m on a time crunch to get it done so that I can read the 3rd book, Shapeshifted. And that will be the real telling point for me if […]


Audio Review: Succubus on Top by Richelle Mead

Audio Review: Succubus on Top by Richelle Mead

Posted May 17, 2013 by Jennifer in Book Review | 2 Comments

  If you’ll remember in the review about Succubus Blues I mention there being two love interests. We get to see more of the second guy, Seth. He is Georgina’s favorite author that she meant while working in the book store. But the problem is he is human and a good guy. I know that doesn’t sound like a problem but when you’re a succubus like Georgina Kincaid and you try to stay away from the good guys so that you don’t suck their life force then dating is a problem. In Succubus on Top, Georgina is dealing mostly with her relationship with Seth and trying to figure out how to make it work. She meets his family and sad by what she will never have. But […]

 I really enjoyed Richelle Mead’s Vampire Academy series and wanted to give her adult writing a try. So during different audio sales I’ve finally purchased the whole series and after having them in my audible.com library for a while; I thought it was time to finally start the series. I’m really glad I did! I wasn’t sure what to expect going in and I was pleasantly surprised by the humor. I was picturing a darker listen. Georgina is the first succubus character I’ve read. I was picturing her being a lot like Bo on Lost Girl but that’s not the case. Yeah, she feeds from the energy she takes during sex but she can also shapeshift which is pretty cool. There’s a funny scene at the being […]


Audio Review: Frost Burned by Patricia Briggs

  The Heroine: Mercy Thompson is a skinwalker (coyote shifter) that grew up within a wolf pack. She’s the town mechanic and she can see ghosts. Mercy is not really the alpha type heroine. She can’t go one book without getting bloody and bruised but she can take care of herself. She is much like her coyote form, wiley and resourceful where she lacks the werewolf strength. It also helps that her skinwalker magic is different from wolf magic in the way that she cannot be controlled by vampires and other plus for her is that fae objects of power seem to like her. The Alpha: Adam Hauptman is the alpha of the local werewolf pack and Mercy’s mate and husband. I like that Adam is the […]


Audio Review: A Little Night Magic by Lucy March

Audio Review: A Little Night Magic by Lucy March

Quick Thought: OMG, it’s like Molly Harper and Darynda Jones had a love child. Pleasantly surprised! Why I Listened: A Little Night Magic was a total impulse buy from Audible.com. It was on sale for $4.95 and I saw that Amanda Ronconi was the narrator and love her narration job on Molly Harper’s books and after reading the summary it sounded like a cute, light listen so I went for it. What I Liked: Everything really. Much like Harper and Jones, March wrote a loveable heroine and fun secondary characters. Olivia is a quirky waitress in a small town where nothing happens. She is wans to make a big chance in her life and decides to move to Europe but her gang of gal pals […]

The Heroine: At first look Jane is a tough as nails heroine. She sees a job that needs to be done and she does it. But on the inside she is like everyone else, looking for a place to belong and someone to love. And she does all of this while figuring out how to balance her needs/wants with her beast’s needs/wants. It’s not always easy. The Love Interest(s): I’ve not been on team Rick from the beginning. Sure he’s sexy and tough but I feel like he is the safe guy that Jane decides to spend time with. I don’t really feel any real connection between the two. Jane’s secret and Rick’s job keeps them from reaching the next level. Now George, aka Brusier is the […]


Audio Review: Navarro’s Promise by Lora Leigh

Posted April 2, 2013 by Jennifer in Book Review | 1 Comment

Navarro’s Promise by Lora Leigh Breeds # 24Narrated By Brianna Bronte The breed guaranteed Mica no harm would come to her, but they never allowed for her sensual fascination with Navarro, or his unstoppable need to claim her as his mate, in both body and soul. Hopes: I went in with hopes that series arc plot would progress and the Breeds series is a great smut fix. Some books focuse more on the couple and their hot hot sex. Others focus more on the arc and throws in hot sex as icing on the cake. And a few are a great blend of both.Reality:  With 20+ books in the series the arc plot is going nowhere fast which is a real shame. The series is […]

  Well I’m three books deep into the Sabina Kane series and I’m still enjoying it. Wells keep delivering the snark and introducing us to more fun secondary characters. All the while showing us that a once cold heart bitch assassin and turn into a kick ass heroine. Sabina and the gang is back (minus one vanity demon) looking for Masie. The Kane family is one dysfunctional bunch. You’ve got Sabina and Masie, twin sister that are half vampire and mage. Which it really hard since the two races can’t stand each other. Then throw in their grandmother, the vampire bitch that is the head of the vampire race. Dear ol’ granny kidnapped Masie in last book, The Mage in Black. The gang lives New York City to search […]
