Excellent all round. Looking forward to book two - when is it out?

Particularly loved that men/women did not narrate the opposite sex at all throughout the book - I absolutely detest that.

Great job guys!

I didn’t see that ending coming! I’m not 100% sure how I feel about it yet! Original writing from J.J McAvoy.

I loved the plot, the characters are fantastic. I had some full on belly laughs listening to the banter between Liam and Melody. I preferred the previous narrator, but still enjoyed this version.

This audiobook almost feels like a movie with the varying voices the narrator can do. I actually had to check the listing to see if there was more than one narrator. The story was good, but made better by the high quality recording.

I am now going to listen to book three and have noticed it is by a different performer, so it will be interesting to see if it is as good.

I never want to hear an audio book without a full cast again!

This is the first audiobook I have ever heard that has a full cast - all I can say is WOW! This really elevated the book. The story was good, but the performance was what made it. Love love love. I listen to anything these guys narrate.

Enjoyable story

As someone who has read or listened to every Carpathian novel, this did not disappoint. I enjoyed it, as usual.

I felt the narrator could have been better picked for the role. Whilst the narrator did an excellent job - he read well, was eloquent and had varying tones in his voice, I just could not imagine him as a Carpathian. Carpathian’s are strong, alpha male type men and this narrators voice did not convey that.

This story contained more plot and less romance, I think it was needed for the general story that occurs throughout the series, however I missed some of the romantic suspense with this one. The plot was strong, there was intrigue and a who did it element. I loved the the tattoo at the end, it was a very sweet gesture. Another recommendation for this series.

I really enjoyed learning about Ronan and Sasha. This is the second book Zavarelli has surprised me with her characters; Ronan is a man with very autistic like qualities. It is shown through out the book that it is due to his childhood, however being the strong, dominant alpha male lover I was surprised to realised this man was a complete turn on! There was a very childlike quality to some of their interactions which is at a complete juxtaposition to his murderous tendencies.

Again, the plot was strong and I learned more about the syndicate. I enjoyed reading about Mac and Loch from the previous book and can not wait to read book three!

One of my all time favourites.

I have come to realise that I thoroughly enjoy the dark romance genre, but that the book must also have a very strong plot line to match or exceed the romance. For me, the romance should be part of the story, not THE story. This book ticks all the boxes. The romance was smoking hot, Loch was a character I could stand behind, and an excellent example of a strong, complex lead male and Mac was also an exceptional example of a strong lead female. Neither of the characters over shadowed the other and were both equally as strong in their own right. I didn't feel that one was more dominant than the other, which was surprising and I am quite shocked that I really liked this aspect - considering I am all about alpha males.

The secondary characters have left me guessing and I can not wait to read more about them in their own books. It's so enjoyable to have a novel that has such an interesting plot and I look forward to devouring book two.

Sometimes I feel listening to books on audible deflects and takes away some of my enjoyment, I can quite happily tell you this was not at all the case with this book. The narrator did a fantastic job.

For the soft centred people.

I found the plot lacking in this story. It was good if you like sappy, long lost love stories; however for me there was no angst, no interesting plot line to sink your teeth into and the secondary characters were bare bones. I need a hero, and there wasn’t one I felt I could root for. I personally wouldn’t recommend this book.
