Summary

Shameless cravings. Wicked pleasures. Can she survive a bond more powerful than love?

For the survival of his clan, Jack Fialko needs to mate with a witch of equal power before the end of the solstice. He finds the perfect woman, except for one serious flaw. She has no idea how to engage in the dangerous magical foreplay - the duel for sexual equality. The task of training her in two days seems insurmountable, especially while other warriors are trying to kidnap her. 

Zoe is a warrior-healer hybrid. The trouble is, she has no idea what that means. It’s all a harmless game until, one night, a dominant, brooding, sexy-as-sin warrior touches her and ignites a shameless craving to mate. Zoe must decide if the scorching chemistry between them is worth fighting for. 

Can love and lust exist together in an exhilarating magical combination? Or will their bond combust?

Warning: The book contains mature themes, steamy and sexual scenes, and graphic language.

No Emotion with Speaker=Boring as hell

Lacked so much emotion with the speaker that it make this story so boring. Lack of character development. Every single person sounds exactly the same, making this sound confusing. It makes it very boring and hard to finish. Not very erotic either.

Dark Vortex

This is a hard review for me because the stories are REALLY GOOD, yet I felt like some parts were cut a bit short. Still things were all complete, nothing was left undone. Maybe a bit more background in a few characters would have been good. I’m so glad to have taken a chance on this book. And the 4th book was my favorite. I laughed so much.
The narrator was good. But there were a few times in book 4 that I had a hard time knowing who was talking because there wasn’t any distinction in the voices.
Definitely would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in some paranormal sexy, fun and adventure!!

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

Lots of action..

Love the 4-book box set. Some of the stories more than others.
Book 1 - Dark Vortex: Jack was my favorite MC from the four books. He was solid alpha and I love when a guy knows what he wants. Zoe,.. not so much. A bit too naive, despite learing about those around her.. but the story was good.

Book 2 - Dark Tremor - Jace and Terra were my favorite couple, well-matched. This was my favorite story of the four. Lots of action and hot scenes. Loved Simone's telling of the story.

Book 3 - Dark Tide - Josh was my least favorite of the brothers, but that's a personal issue with me.. I have issues with over-the-top self pity and Josh seems to be full of it. It was also my least favorite reading by Simone. I liked the story line, however, and enjoyed catching up with Josh/Zoe and Jace/Terra.

Book 4 - Mohegan - *Sort of spoilers* Okay.. so this was my least favorite of the 4 books. I caught myself repeatedly flipping off my kindle with additional curse words tossed in due to Mohegan's antics. There is no way in hell I would have stuck with that guy. Nothing would have stopped me from finding a way to break that spell and send him packing. I didn't understand the chemistry between them and I thought Mohegan was an ass. Olivia deserved so much more!

Overall - I enjoyed the stories. They were action-packed and the sex scenes were good. I even enjoyed yelling at my kindle. Overall it was defintely worth the listen and I will listen again.

Steamy Paranormal Romance

This is a fantastic paranormal romance series and very steamy; I thoroughly enjoyed it. In the paranormal genre, World-building is essential, Stella Marie Alden has done an exceptional job creating the Dark Vortex (Mated by Magic) world. The storyline is very sensual and marvelously entertaining, it's packed with romance, action, drama, magic, and witches. The plot is very engaging, you'll be immersed from the start, right to the very end. The characters are captivating, particularly the four super hot Fialko brothers, Jack, Jace, Josh, and their healer Mohegan along with their mates. The Fialko brother's and Mohegan all have great connections to their mates, very passionate, and the chemistries, charged.

Simone Gayuma's performance is outstanding. With her smooth voice, she draws you further into the story. Overall, the Dark Vortex world is a delightful listen, and I wholly recommend it. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Good story

I really liked this book and story, however the narrator needs to listen to accents she had a Nee England accent for an Australian accent it was hard to listen to. I'm not bashing her but she needs to listen to different accents to better know her characters.

Oh my gosh!

This series was amazing! I loved listening to this series. I will most likely listen to it a few more times. I love this author and have read and or listened to most of her books. Always looking forward to the next book that comes out by her or catching up and reading one I haven’t gotten to. Totally recommend listening or reading any book by her!

Great story, terrible narration

I loved the story and put up with the nasally tone of the narrator. This would’ve been 5 stars all the way if it weren’t for that voice!
