Summary

It's been seven years since Lexi Knight lost her brother in a tragic accident. On the anniversary of his death, her brother's best friend shows up unexpectedly - a man she hasn't seen since the funeral. He is no longer the boy Lexi once knew, but a dangerous-looking man with tattoos and dark secrets. He broke her trust and abandoned her family, yet what he reveals makes it impossible to stay angry.

Lexi has been secretly infatuated with Austin since childhood, so finding out he's a Shifter just makes him sexier. Dammit. Austin Cole has returned to the city where he grew up, and just in time. He's lived a hard life these past seven years, and the shadows of his past are threatening to destroy Lexi's family. It's time that she learned the truth about her brother, but there is a shocking twist that Austin never saw coming. Now he must protect her family when her mother and sister wind up in mortal danger. Will Lexi learn to accept the truth about who he is, and can Austin salvage a relationship from the ruins of their past?

Well worth the credit

I'm new to this author but I enjoyed it so much I'll try more of her books .
I also thought the narrators voice was interesting and totally non intrusive . I'll keep her in mind for future choices.

Move over Twilight saga!

If you could sum up Seven Years in three words, what would they be?

Exciting, stimulating and funny.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Who wasn't would be a better question.

What does Nicole Poole bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

A voice to the character.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes many times..

Any additional comments?

The book should be made into a movie. Loved it! Just started book 2 which looks at two different characters in depth. Let you know how I get on. X

Okay-ish

This book was a bit of a mix for me. There were some parts I really enjoyed, but there were also parts that just really dragged. I also found the main female character quite annoying.
The narrator did a good job and I would happily listen to another book narrated by her.

Shifter world

What does Nicole Poole bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Good range of voices to denote the characters

Any additional comments?

Lexi is just a regular woman that we can all identify, that is, until Austin walks back into her life. Not only does she find out that he’s a shifter but she also finds that she is. With the mystery of her parentage and various other catastrophes that she keeps falling into this story will get you hooked right to the end.
As shifter books goes, this is a full bodied one, and by that I mean the author has created a whole world with plenty of characters and each one has the potential to be a lead in the next book. It is a very exciting series to sink your teeth in.

Brilliant new series

If you could sum up Seven Years in three words, what would they be?

new twilight saga

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved all the characters, they are in depth without being whiny and repetitive in their descriptions.

Which character – as performed by Nicole Poole – was your favourite?

Nicole Poole is fab. At first I thought 'wow, is she going t try and do all the voices different?' after a whiole you forget its even one person narrating the book.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I couldn't wait to keep listening, I got this book to help me settle to sleep at night and instead I ended up listening to it all the time!

Any additional comments?

Can't wait to keep reading the others in the series. Will be interesting to see if Nicole can keep up with all the different characters and do the same voices. Another fab series to hopefully get my teeth into and enjoy. I love my physical books, but have to say so far this is converting me into also being able to enjoy the world of audiobooks too!

AN EASY SHIFTER HEA READ

This is my first book I've read by Dannika Dark & did really like it 😊 it is a must read if you love tales about Shifters 🐺
I did enjoy the characters of Alpha Male, Austin Cole & His Best Mate (Wes)'s Sister Lexi Knight.
But they haven't seen or heard from each other, well Lexi couldn't even if she wanted to, which she did, as Austin JUST vanished from their lives after Wes' funeral. unbeknownst to her Austin went to find his killer, well she didn't even known he was killed by someone. But she had felt she'd lost the 2 most important people in her life at the age of 20.
So Here we jump 7 yrs later whilst she's gone to visit Wes' grave that Austin turns up & he can see that well smell that unbeknown to her she's on the verge of shifting, of course she didn't know, as he, her brother & the man she believed was her father (who had left 5 yrs before hand) had known all about Shifters & she was left to help her Mom with her little Sister.
So here we see a fair bit of various flirtation from other shifters, but also areas of violence especially from her ex & that was the final straw for Austin he was keeping her, her sister safe until they find her Mom. And it's during this time I could've hit/kicked/punch whatever the action to get Austin to speak up as you could see that she wanted him & him her, ESPECIALLY when it came to helping her when she shifted, but more so when she was experiencing her 1st HEAT episode & this is where I'll leave the review there, as it's the area you need to experience from here on in, as there's still action about her father & the dealings of the other shifters 5 of which are Austin's brothers 😄😚😘😚😘😍

Loved it

I've been meaning to read this book for a while but didn't have the time to do it recently. this was until last night when I had a massive pile of laundry, dishes, some vacuuming etc to do. I bought this audio book and it was the most enjoyable house clean I've done in a very long time.
it is very rare that I like every hero/heroin in a book and I loved all of them.
The bad guys were very convincing as well and created a very interesting story line.
Highly recommended.
oh and I almost forgot about the narration. this is my 20th audio book and so far this was the best one performance wise.

Nice surprise.

I've had this book on my Wishlist for ages and decided to take a leap of faith while on a "book hangover" from the end of a favourite series. WOW am I glad I did! This book had everything that ticks my boxes, excellent story and world building, awesome narrator that does male and female characters well and lots of action. Well worth the credit.

Perfect Paranormal Series. LISTEN NOW

What made the experience of listening to Seven Years the most enjoyable?

This review is for the whole series

CHARACTERS- lovable and respectable
STORY- great pacing, romance, action, adventure, kidnappings, mysteries....
SEX- not too much, not too little and well performed
PERFORMANCE- dynamite (and I'm picky).

What about Nicole Poole’s performance did you like?

Nicole Poole is a great narrator. I hated her voice for the first 10minutes and at times the recording quality wasn't dynamite, but then a bit further into the book she BLEW ME AWAY. Her male voices are especially great. They are each unique and distinguishable but also not over the top and annoying. Her acting is terrific as well. When I listen I am completely immersed.

Any additional comments?

Dannika Dark makes the paranormal aspects of this story really great. There are a lot of books that explore the dynamics within wolf packs, but she makes the family dynamics in this pack very "real". The alpha males aren't so alpha-y that you want to smack them and say "get over yourself". They respect their women but also are macho in that sexy way you gotta love.

The author also added new types of paranormal characters that I've never heard of before and they really work. I'd highly recommend listening to the series about Mages, the first is titled Sterling. It will give more background info that intertwines nicely with these books. Also, the relationship the paranormal world has with the human world seems more believable in these books than others out there.

decent story

The story was good. Not the best, but decent. I think the most difficult part was the narrators voice. She did a good job overall, but I just could not picture how the story described Lexie in the story with that voice. It sounded too old for a 27 year old.

Am I the only one?

I thought this one would have been better if it were shorter. I just got board with how slow it moved and never really related or like the main characters. I tried to speed up the narration and even that did not help, everyone else seems to love it, I wish I had, but it just was not for me.

THAT DAMN LEAN!!!!

I was soo excited when I realized this book was coming to audible. I read Seven Years when it first was published and instantly feel in love with the story. Dannika writes a captivating story full of suspense, sexual tension, action and romance. Lexi Knight is a 27 year old adult that has been working the same job, in a candy story, for the last seven years. She also has been living in the same town since she can remember. Seven years ago, her world was changed forever when her older brother, Wes, was killed in a car accident and her father decided to leave her mother, her newborn sister and Lexi without a look back. In the midst of this crisis, Wes' best friend Austin, who has been like a big brother to Lexi, suddenly leaves after Wes's funeral without so much as a good bye to his adopted family. Seven years later, Lexi is struggling with her love life, trying to help her mom with Maisie and trying to figure out what she wants in her life when Austin walks back into the picture, with that damn lean, and turns Lexi world right side up. Buried secrets from the past finally come to light and Lexi begins to understand who she is, exactly where her life is meant to go and who she is ultimately meant to be with.

Nicole does an excellent job of telling the story with as much passion and intrigue as Dannika put into the story. To saw the next book, Six Months, is already an automatically download for me is an understatement. I hope it comes to audible soon.

IMO, buy buy buy. I know you will enjoy this book.

I LOVED EVERY SINGLE CHAPTER, PARAGRAPH & WORD

To say my library's got a good share of Shifter books in it would be an understatement...... but I think this is absolutely THE BEST of all of them. It introduces you to a host of loveable characters who all get entwined in a really enjoyable and entertaining plot that's got everything I was looking for.

In this first taste of the fresh were-world it's very much character driven and you can't help but feel part of their world as you get to know each of them and what part they all play in this new community. Dual POV's and the Narrator did a FANTASTIC job in bringing all of events and characters to life.

Worth a credit? Oh boy is it ever, I loved it and I'm desperate for the next instalment which will be an auto buy for me.

Seven Heaven!!!!!!!

Overall a great read that I would definitely listen to again!

This was a well rounded story with great characters you cannot help but to fall in love with. I look forward to listening to each of their stories and will continue the series.

The only negative was throughout the story there were parts that dragged and the book could have actually been shorter and would have been just as good.

Overall, I am glad I came across this series and will recommend this book to my friends.

Just So So

The storyline was fairly good, it just seemed to be a slow going, meandering story with no real excitement.

It didn't make me want to quickly resume listening when I needed to shut it off for something.

Not compelling enough to make me listen to next in series.
