Finally I understand Zane

Overall

This book is a very special one, Tina married fact and fiction beautifully. It ddosnt make light of the dark history it represents but not does it wallow in the misery of that time. The characters are strong and give life to the book. I'm going to start with Porsches father he is not the man you expect. At first you believe like most father's he's a protector and loves his daughter with no question. But when his daughter confronts him in a fact made known to her by her best friend you see a side to him that is more then a bad guy although the twists in this story may make you wonder where it is going but stay with it it's worth the wait.

Ok porshe her self is not what she seems either she at first comes across as a shy residing girl who followed what her farther days goes to her college lessons and all in all is an a student but later she seems brattish and shallow only to be the second strongest character in the book.

Zane what can I say finally i understand his lone wolf approach to his life his need to gaurd what he loves as well as protect who he is. You glimpse the man who became a monster in his own mind only to find that he wasn't the monster he thought he was.

This book touch's on the true horror of the holocaust and the men who caused it and the people who lived it. I'm not Jewish but being disabled had i lived at that time I too could have found myself in a concentration camp as did many others gypsys, gays,lesbiens etc for it wasn't just religious beliefs that landed you there. It was the idea of a mad man who played God with his country and all those he invaded. This book reminds us it should never happen again.

Everybody deserves a bit of romance in their life

This book was a genuine surprise, all through the this man series Drew had seemed a bit of an after thought, a background character to give life to Jesse's world of sin. So to see him have his own book was intriguing and I was not disappointed, although I would have liked to have delved deeper into Drew's character there was enough there to make you understand him. Reeia suits him yes its the same old, older man meets niaive young girl and everyone lives happy ever after or so it seems, but her character has a old soul sort of feel about it she is young in one sense but old in another, in that she listens when Drew explaines where as a more immature woman would have blocked his number and not wanted to try and reason with him. The return of Coral the manipulayting cow is like iced water on the story but it also makes it. She is the ultimate bunny boiler the woman that no woman wants to become and hopes never too. And finally Drew's little girl Georgia she makes the story she really does you smile at everything she does.
The narration was excellent the actor reading gave depth to his characters and showed a wealth of emotions through out the book. Well done that man.

This is the first book in the never to late series. I loved it, the story line is easy but fun to follow as there is a lot to keep you entertained, the characters are strong and have just enough reality about them to make you believe they are everyday type people not that every woman out there would be jealous of a woman in her 50s keeping a model like figure I know I would. But this story makes you smile the women are strong the men realistic that you instantly know who's who and what they are after. Many of us will relate to the problems the characters face and OK they have money well most of them do and there is a bit of american glamour about it but its a fun light read that tugs at your heart so I gave it five stars.
The narrator is good and gives you enough change in tone to hear who is who which is a skill as some books I have listened to the characters all sound a like, so it was nice that all the characters had their own tone.

What a lovely surprise , after reading some of the previous reviews I was guilty of being swayed away from this book , I hold my hands up I was wrong. This book is a gem Jake and Camille's characters are just as strong and vibrent as Lilly and Miller(One night series) and the much loved Jessie and Eva(This Man series).
Her story is sound the plot riveting . Jake is a body guard yes Tall Handsome (we all need some fantasy) He is also a ex solider who suffers PTSD and Anxiety this was handled beautifully believable and well reaserched. And also sends a message to women don't judge a book by its cover. Camille's character is strong Independent but has also got a timid side her suffering of domestic abuse from ex boyfriend Sebastian is fantastically written.
I like the use of the two narrator's it gave the story life and body both were clear and believable as their characters it was a bit like watching a film with your eyes closed and kept me entatained.
All in all a huge thumbs up jodi please give us more.

Fantastic continuation of the rock group school boy choir series. What I love is these boys arnt hero's they are normal guys who happen to be famous. The female characters are strong and independent.
Now David is a great character an example of poor boy makes good we all love the underdog. Thia is strong and independent and the nice thing is she has a sense of humour and has everyday hangups like a normal woman.
The storyline is believable and not complex or far fetched, there is a romance element but its nicely woven and believable. The erotic scenes are tasteful and not so majourly graphic you feel like your reading a porn story.
The narration is excellent and you get a real feel for the characters. All in all I recommend the whole series its a must for long train journeys.

I love this book it proves there's life after 30 who would have thought it. Its a book for the more mature generation but also sends the message that life ain't all roses in your 20s either. The thing I love most is the real woman gets her man life is too short for silly diets happiness rules out. So if your having a bad day at work put this on in the journey home by the time you get home you will feel a dam site lot better that's for sure.

Fantastical adventure

A fantastic adventure/ horror with love intrigue and monsters. Folsom weaves a plot with so many twists and turns each page is a treasure trove, her characters are essentially indearing with a few love to hate types.
Sampson and Delila are as there names suggest destained but will they get through all those who want to stop them you need to read and find out.
The narration is good and soothing but the odd strange accent throws you at times.
My verdict worth every penny

I loved this book why? well it had adventure, sexiness and romance. the heroine was smart , funny and above all kick ass, the hero was also a villien at times but came across as strong, attractive and protective. Singh weaves a story of intrigue and suspense couple that with steamy sexy vampires and a hint of steamy sex between some of the characters and you have a book with bite.
The narrator had a clear sweeping voice who seamed to meld the character's easily you always knew which character was speaking and when. you didn't confuse Ransom with Rafael or venom with Dametrie or Elinor with Sara each character has their own lilt and timber.
well worth the money I paid and I want more.
