Summary

Tall, Dark & Dead introduced Garnet Lacey, a bookstore manager/witch who accidentally unleashed the dark goddess Lilith on Vatican assassins. Now she has other things to worry about-like pesky frat boy zombies, a gorgeous FBI agent hot on her trail, love spells gone wrong, and keeping her vampire boyfriend a safe distance from her vampire ex-boyfriend. There's just no rest for this Wiccan...

Garnet needed to get a grip!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I'm not sure I would, I really liked the first of the series and had I not I would have hated this. It was the remembrance of the first which enabled me to look past garnets intensely annoying new persona and find some enjoyment. She was childish and unable to make good decisions, a funny quirky heroine can be awesome but I think it needed to be reined in a bit for it to have worked. I also felt we needed to see more of Sebastian.

What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

She is ace!

you will get hooked...

I've listened this whole series and I really enjoy it kind of like a soap opera. I really like parish for some reason i find him funny. The series is entertaining i wish the books were a little longer but i enjoy the series. If you like molly harper you will like this book as well I had to check and see if this is a pen name of hers. Don't let the not so good reviews sway you from this series if you like nice girls series you will love this as well.

Installment number two and twice as good.

I was forced to give the first story in this series a scathing, for me, review on audible because of production issues. The audio quality of the first book is bellow sub-par. I loved the narrator so much and was intrigued by the story I decided to go ahead with the second book and I am so glad I did. There were no productions issues. The narration was superb, Ms. Ronconi does such a good job giving each character their own voice, it is really so pleasant to listen to her.

The plot of this book was more developed and engaging than the first book. I also thought it was funnier than the first. Sebastian and Garnet continue to develop and define their relationship, although some of this seemed out of character to me. Garnet makes strides to reconcile with her past and identity. The secondary character that I found quite endearing are back, for the most part. My biggest problem with the story is that sometimes it seems abridged although it claims not to be. There would be phrases that sounded like they were referring something that happened earlier in the novel, except I don't think it did. This happened several times. Maybe these are things that will be addressed in forthcoming books in the series but they were mundane enough to not seem likely.

better in some ways / worse in some ways

I enjoyed the banter back and forth on this one more. I enjoyed the development of the story. The fact that it dealt with zombies, didn't overly amuse me ( I am not one for this whole zombie apocalypse deal) But it was still a good story. I got a little tired of how whiny and dense the main character was in this one, it was starting to get annoying. I am hoping as we go on in the story she will become less so.

If you are coming to these books from Molly Harper's books you will find them slightly disappointing, but they are a decent follow up, they just don't quite reach that level. Amanda Ronconi however is as excellent of a narrator in these as she is in Harper's and she does the voices differently so you don't feel you are listening to Jane while listening to these

Not too exciting

I wasn't expecting Shakespeare, but the plot left a lot to be desired. I couldn't bring myself to care about the Zombies and the ending got wrapped up way too easily. I didn't hate this one but I doubt that I will bother with the next one in the series.

Cute story

This was suggested to me by Audible because I listen to Molly Harper's books. This was a fun read but pales in comparison to Molly Harper's books.

Heroine makes crazy choices

Enjoy the series but the heroine seems to make mistake after mistake. Despite that, the story is unusual and engaging. I would like to see her rescue herself for a change instead of being rescued. But that's just me. Excellent narrator. Seriously, she is the very best.

too far-fetched and chaotic

Although the book is funny, dramatic, and crazy, it was just too far-fetched and chaotic for my taste even in this genre. I will not be reading the next in the series.

Another great entry in the Garnet Lacey saga!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It's a light, fun, romantic listen with intrigue and mystery thrown in. Oh, and let's not forget the chase scene that you can almost see!

What other book might you compare Dead Sexy to and why?

The Molly Harper Jane Jameson series. Both paranormal romances, both narrated by Amanda Ronconi and both just the right mix of serious and light.

What about Amanda Ronconi’s performance did you like?

I like the different voices she does for the different characters. She's one of my favorite narrators so some books I'm more likely to buy just because she's narrating.

Any additional comments?

I like that it's set in Wisconsin as I've lived my whole life here. I'm familiar enough with Madison that the streets and settings sound familiar.

I liked the audiobook better than the Kindle version because the Kindle version had editing issues. Also, I have a habit of listening to books I like over and over, and this is one of them!
