Summary

Do vampires deserve love?

I should have died, the night I got stabbed. Instead, I was reborn as a vampire. New name, new identity - new master.

My sire treated me like his pet. It was rough, at first, but I learned to adapt, learned to please him. Learned to follow every one of my sire's commands.

Now he's gone, killed by a pack of mortals. Mortals who seem to think they've rescued me. One of them, Jared, claims that he knew me back when I was mortal too. I'm not the person I used to be, though.

Truth be told, after three years with my sire, I'm barely a person at all.

But Jared is stubborn. He doesn't seem to care how broken I am, and I can't resist him. He makes me feel things I didn't know I could feel anymore. He makes me want things I shouldn't want. He makes me feel like maybe I have something to live for after all.

If only I could break my sire's hold on my mind.

Fantastic story with a fantastic narrator

First of all, let me start y saying that I adore this series and this story. I read it in a book form and loved every page. And listening to it in audio form was a really wonderful way to bring it to life. The characterisation of Silas and Jared in John Solo's talented accents are both spot on to what I imagined they were like in my head. The way they interact and the way John narrates their interactions is spectacular and I found myself being lost in the whole audiobook, simply enjoying everything I was listening to. The story is really clever, building slowly enough that the character interactions are well drawn out and believable in how the two grow together, as well as keeping the story moving forward at a good pace to keep us all interested. The one note I would caution about this audiobook is that both of the two main characters are softly spoken so I had to listen to this on a high volume setting, rather than other books where John's accents and voices are louder. But while I did have to have the volume turned up, this didn't detract from my enjoyment of the story or the audiobook. I highly recommend this audiobook for fans of either John Solo or Ann-Katrin Byrde, as well as fans of the series. This is a fantastic story in the Thicker Than Water series and a really great audiobook to add to anyone's collection.

Love is seeing all the flaws and blemishes

and accepting them. Love is accepting the bad habits and mannerisms, and working around them. Love is recognizing all the fears and insecurities, and knowing your role is to comfort. Love is working through all the challenges and painful times. ~Unknown~ This is my favorite book of the series so far. Jared and Silas's relationship was everything!! I love how Jared was like a mountain, holding sturdy & strong through Silas's storms. The way Silas was treated by his Sire made me cringe whenever he had flashbacks. It was hard to listen to his suffering and I wanted to jump inside the book to keep him safe. But, Silas's strength through his healing journey was beautiful. I loved everything about this story! I can't wait to see where Aldrich and Remy's relationship takes us next, there is still so much to deal with between the war brewing and coven issues. I feel like this book left off on a bit of a cliffhanger, if you are an audible only listener you might want to wait on this series until it's fully complete. I'm giving a heads up because of how much I love this series and how quickly I devoured it. 💕

Spreading His Wings

Love Heals is the third book in the Thicker than Water series, a vampire/dhampirs mpreg series. These books should be read in order since there is an overarching series plot. Each of the books focuses on a different couple, but all the previous couples and characters from the other books are deeply intertwined with the plot of book 3. Silas has been the pet of a sadistic vampire coven leader since he was first turned. The abuse he’s gone through on both the psychological and emotional level has been intense and has left a severe mark on his psyche. Jared is drawn to Silas, due both to the past they’ve shared and a future he hopes they’ll have. But first Silas has to heal before anything romantic can really grow between them. While they deal with all the trauma of Silas’ past, things are heating up in the war between the vampires and dhampirs and it’s more imperative than ever that Jared’s family and allies figure out the secrets behind the ancient prophecy that started the war in the first place. This book was fantastic. Silas had a lot of pain and trauma he had to heal from and at points he had to fight through his previous conditioning to protect Jared. The love between the two of them was sweet to watch develop and grow. Not only did I fall in love with Jared and Silas, but I also enjoyed seeing all the other couples again and I’m so excited to see how Remy and Ulrich’s relationship develops. Ann-Katrin Byrde is a wonderful writing duo and their writing talent is evident in their prose, style, characterization, and plot building. The audiobook is narrated by the wonderful John Solo. John does an outstanding job with the narration of this book, just like he did the first two books. John keeps his character voices consistent from book to book and all through this narration which made it really easy to follow along in the story. The energy John put into audiobook performance was perfect and really fit each different scene within the book. The audiobook production was well done and really enjoyed listening to it.

Love heals all

I appreciate on Ann- Katrin Byrde for starting off each book with a recap of events from previous book(s) for those of us who sometimes have foggy minds when it comes to remembering past events from other books in series . In Book 3 of Thicker Than Water series we follow Jared and Silas' story. Jared along with the help of his brothers nurse the canary shifting vampire Silas, after he was injured helping Luke and Crimson escape the building before the bomb went off in Book 2. Jared recognized Silas when he was brought to the house after the bombing and volunteered to take care of him through his recovery. As the story starts it gives us flashbacks/insight of Silas' life as Nikolai's pet, the hurt, the pain, the anguish he suffered. With Jared's help the healing begins and love blooms for these two. Ann- Katrin Byrde did an excellent job yet again giving these two characters their story. Thank you guys I enjoyed every minute. thank you John solo for narrating this book and bringing these characters to life. I love the voice you give to each character . Without your voice I would have spent two plus days , give or take, getting through the ebook format...😆😆😁😁

Love Heals

This is book 3 in this serie and is about Silas a vampire and Jared is a Dhampir. Jared and his brother’s are trying to help Silas, he is the vampire who help Luke and Crimson escape the tower in the last book and because of that he thinks he is a traidor, poor Silas his master do horrible things to him and he can help to feel that he don’t deserve good things but Jared will helping him because he knew Silas when he was human... each chapter in this book gets better and better, every time I read a book in this series I want the next one ASAP! There’s not cliffhangers in his serie but you need to read this books in order. This is a hurt/comfort, second chances book. I can’t wait to see where it all goes with the vampires/dhampirs and prophecies, hope the next book is Remy! John Solo did a great job narrating this book I love all the different voices he made for each character and the accent!! I really enjoy this audiobook!

Phenomenal. Just.... wow

So I'll admit I am slightly bias when it comes to the lovely trio that is Ann-Katrin Byrde and John Solo. However, this book has surpassed all the previous team ups between them. The writing, I cannot fault it at all, the story, just brilliant, the sex scenes, sometimes frustrating, because i want to make everything perfect for them, its also Hot and emotive. The dog, I want to keep for myself. John's narration - when I say he went all out... i mean, really went all out! I was in the story, I felt everything and I salute John for that performance. I won't lie though, it probably won't be to everyone's taste. there are some triggers that might put people off, but without that this story would not be what it is.

Love Heals

Jared never thought he would ever see the one man that made such an impact on him years ago. When Silas arrives at the house Jared recognizes him from his past, but Silas is not the man he remembers, and it will take everything Jared has to help Silas find his way out from under the control of a dead man. Silas and Jared’s story is a wonderful listen. It was nice to see Silas get his story told. The two a good together and I enjoyed seeing Silas grow and find his way with the help of Jared. As the two try to figure out just where they fit with each other, the family must rally together and work to figure out a way to survive and fight the vampires that are determined to destroy them and any of their kind. This story is full of emotions and grabbed me right from the start and never let go. So much is getting figured out and hinted at in this story. The author does a wonderful job of making us hate the evil and hope for love to win. Narrator john Solo brings the characters to life and had me lost in the story feeling the emotions as if they were my own.

miraculous

When I previously read this I enjoyed it, but listening to this was sheer bliss. John Solo breathed life into the vamps and this story making the characters lifelike and endearing. I had empathy for Silas before but listening to this made my heart bleed for him. His sire was so vile, that it hurt me. These authors tear your heart out and then miraculously repair it with love and the narration. Great job to all. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. Solo is a voice magician. Hats off to you!!

Best of the series!

Ann-Katrin Boyle and John Solo have done it again. I loved the first two in the series but this one just might be my favorite. The narration was perfect and the story delivered on every level.
