Summary

In a dark and dangerous world, paranormals openly roam the streets, policed by a special office of Elite Paranormal Hunters. Gwen Taylor, is one of the best in the US.

Until she becomes embroiled in a case that changes her life, forcing a drastic shift in her allegiance. A case that pairs her with four sexy partners she can’t seem to resist, despite the dangers. A case that pits her once-human nature against the monstrous urges she has developed. The same urges of those she puts away for a living. 

Can she fight the growing attraction for her teammates? Will Gwen be able to balance the good and evil warring within her mind? Or will she embrace the darkness and become one of the creatures she’s hunted?

A slow start but worth sticking with it!

This one took me a little while to really get into. The beginning felt a little awkward and forced. The MC was a little too whiny and self deprecating for my taste. I prefer a stronger and more confident female character. I don't mind some vulnerability, bit there needs to be a balance.

I stuck with it though. The story line was good and the character development became more interesting over time. In the end I did enjoy the story and would be interested in listening to future books in the series.

Amazing cant wait for book 2

I was gifted this book by the author for my honest review.
This was so worth listening to.
I love anything paranormal and this is a new take on the whole thing.
The main character Gwen is well written and easy to like.
It's sexy In the right places without getting too explicit.
It's exciting, funny and sad.
Gwen is relatable to every woman and all the things we think and don't want to say out loud.
The narrator on this book was new to me but might just have become one of my favourites she made Gwen come to life got me believing in her.
I for one will be waiting patiently for book 2.
My only complaint is it wasn't long enough but that's just me wanting more.

great story line just felt a bit rushed

I felt this book had a lot of potential but the relationships were too rushed, the storyline its self is good though so if you dont mind fast paced relationships then this is a good book, I really like sarah puckett as a narrator she always does a great job. audiobook obsessions reviewer

A great start to a new series with ace narration

I really enjoyed this story. Even though it's a short story it does give a great introduction into the world and the characters within it. The characters are nicely defined and their personalities are just starting to come through. Now I'd like to know more.

Sarah Puckett does a great job with the narration. I always enjoy listening to her narration.

This series was my first by Sara Fields. I absolutely loved it!! She has a great blend of Dark and Steamy. It takes you to the edge, pushes your boundaries and leaves you feeling very satisfied. I personally love PNR and was hoping I would enjoy the alien aspect- rest assured, I did! I would LOVE to read more by Sara! I plan to explore her other works. I enjoyed the characters, the chemistry, and the story found in these pages. It was a great read!

Narration- Heather Firth's voice was perfect for this! I love the quality! She has a wonderful talent for giving you a deep, masculine male voice and still providing a wonderful female voice as well. Most are great at one but not the other. I thought both voices were great and matched the characters well. Highly enjoyable, clean editing and clear narration.

Good Start

This was a good start to a new series and I think the idea behind it is really interesting; however, I feel like I would have enjoyed the story a lot more if the author would have given us more information about the men in the story and let us get to know them a little better. I think the author has a good start going here, and I'm still very interested in where she is going to take it. What little bits of interaction and chemistry between characters we do experience is great; just overall this first book is a bit too vague to really tell.

Sarah Puckett gives us a great performance, as usual. She does a good job differentiating between all of the characters and made this a quick easy listen.

Loved It!!!!

Gwen is just your average hunter. She goes around eliminating the paranormal beings that are causing problems with the humans. That is until her help is requested for a situation in Florida where many children are turning up missing. Something happens while she’s investigating that will change her life forever. I really enjoyed this story very much. Gwen was super relatable. The story was amazing as well. However, the story wasn’t perfect. I really wish that the story was longer. I wish things had been prolonged a little bit more. Many scenes could have been enhanced. The other thing I had a slight issue with I’m kind of on the fence about. I normally don’t really get comfortable with the intense lust thing, but in this book it works. It’s hard to explain. But I feel like it’s part of the new her. The characters are pretty amazing. I loved them all. I wish that some of the secondary characters played bigger roles. I will admit I got a bit confused with the names here and there. Except Gwen. I really love the name Gwen. And she was awe inspiring! I feel like she would be up in my top favorite characters. Right up there with Zoey Redbird and Rose Hathaway! The narrator did a fantastic job with this one, but I really didn’t think she could do a bad job. This is not my first book that I’ve heard of Sarah Puckett. It won’t be the last either. I love her as a narrator. She just has this smooth voice I want to listen to for hours. I probably could to. Heck, I listened to this book in one sitting! If you haven’t heard anything by this narrator, you need to do so! I really enjoyed this book. My mother and sister both read the book last year and they LOVED it. It’s been on my pile of books to read for a long time. I’m glad I’ve finally read it. I stumbled across this author at a readers’ convention in July of last year and I am so glad I did. I can’t wait to read more books by her!

Hoodwinked by Beth Hendrix

I must admit, I'm not into RH but that didn't put me off of this book. I love the story and I can't deny that the characters are hot. I love vamps and shifters!

Sarah Puckett is such a great narrator! I love how she narrates and portrayed the characters. Her voice is amazing!

Love it!

I can not wait to read more! This was a great start to what I can tell is going to be an awesome series. I love the characters and the chemistry between them all. I would love to learn more backstory on each of them. I'm sure that will come - for now, I am just in love. I was sad it ended so soon!

The narration was great. Sarah did a fantastic job of differentiating between all the characters. RH can be hard since there is just so many characters at play but I thought it was handled beautifully. The production was very clean, clear and enjoyable.

This is my first book by Beth Hendrix and it was thoroughly enjoyable. I noticed there were no other books on Audible but there were in Kindle and I plan to read other books by Beth Hendrix. I love paranormal romance.

Sarah Puckett did a good job with the narration. I received this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

4-4.5 Stars for Bk 1 of The Demon Exchange series!

This was my first read/listen of Beth Hendrix's work and I very much enjoyed it and am super sad there arent more in the series after this one!! I know she had been trying to put out book 2 but I am not sure what happened. I really hope we see more from this author, especially this series, because the potential is there for an amazing story and amazing characters.

For the story, I thought the pace was good, I kinda liked the insta-attraction (not really the love part, but it kinda comes with the mates territory haha). I loved the concept and the ending was killer!! That's why I really hope Beth continues on with this story, it reeled me in and I didnt want it to end haha. I almost relistened to the audiobook was over. I think some of the events/interactions could have been fleshed out a bit more, some things were fantastic, but others could have used some more time/details. I thought the men were 🔥🔥🔥, the bad guys were just starting to be exceptionally bad, and the plot had great backbones. I would recommend this series as long as the reader/listener knows there might not be a 2nd book for awhile (hopefully not never).

I enjoy pretty much anything Sarah Puckett narrates and I think she did a good job bringing these characters to life. I think she could have made the male voices more distinct, because I was sometimes having an issue figuring out who was who, but it didnt happen a lot. Its the only thing I could really fault it, besides some weird inflections that I like too me out of the story for a quick sec.

Overall, solid 4-4.5 stars for both the story and narration. I will relisten for sure if book 2 is released!

Wow!!!

Okay first of all I’m not into rh but there are just times that I don’t realize it and I randomly get a book or two into the mix. Well, let me tell you this book started with a an interesting story from beginning to the end where you are left somewhat hanging of course. The storyline line has twists and turns. Action packed with quick love. Chemistry between characters is hot. Who doesn’t love paranormal? Anyways, narrator does a good job in bringing life to the characters. I really enjoyed this and recommend it. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. And I can’t wait for the next audiobook.

Good book but very rushed

Interesting book. I like the world. The characters are good. It’s a shorter book so it felt very, very rushed. Gwen was strong but vulnerable. I do think that she accepted what happened way too quickly and then the sex all happened way too quickly. That’s basically what I think of this book. It was good but too rushed.

The narration was fine.. except for all the y’all’s. I know that’s just how it was written but it drives me insane. I’m from the south. I know southerners say y’all, I say y’all but NOT as often as Gwen did. It was so annoying.

Pure Entertainment

This book was so much fun! I loved every minute. The plot was well-developed but I have a few lingering questions besides the obvious mystery ending. For example, why did her appearance change? Why did the men seek her out specifically in the first place for their case? If you’re into an insta-love RH PNR this is the book for you! Sarah Puckett was a fine narrator, no complaints about the book or it’s narration. Definitely on my short “to read again” list! #AudiobookObsessionReviewer

excellent read

I received this book for free for a honest review. This storyline was so amazing. I loved the characters and their personalities. Green reminded me of my daughter... lol. The author kept me interested and the story line together. The narrator did an excellent job of bringing the characters to life. reccomend
