Summary

Part-time demon tracker, full-time optimist...

Talia White does what comes naturally to a unicorn: balances the scales between light and dark with hefty doses of love and joy. Faced with a string of high-profile demon possessions, Talia is determined to do her job, despite the fact that she finds herself strapped with a brooding dragon warrior as her new guardian.

That's the trouble with unicorns - they'll accomplish their goals one way or another, even if they have to get a little stabby to do it.

Delightful, Whimsical, Hilarious and Sexy

I need more!!! I loved everything about this book! It had a great balance of humor, romance, adventure and hot sex! The characters were well developed and the storyline was fun and unique.

The narrator did a great job with the story. Her voices seemed spot on for the different characters. She really brought the story to life!
I can't wait for more of Team Unicorn Talia and all their crazy antics!!

Great world and characters

I enjoyed Melissa Schwairy's narration of this book. I settled in very quickly and forgot about the narrator, just listening to the characters speak.

This book made me chuckle many times throughout, both from the chracters and the situations they got themselves into. And I loved the dynamic between Talia and her dragon. It was great to see the characters and their relationships grow and change as the book progressed. It's a great world with great characters and I'd love to know more.

Too many laughs!

I couldn't stop laughing at this book! Especially in the beginning. I was in tears. Dragons and unicorns. Can never have enough. The book was well written and bigger and uncommon words were used, making it a plus!

The narration wasn't as good as I excepted, especially from Melissa. I heard so many little gasps from her breathing. It was starting to annoy me. Nonetheless, she did a great job on the rest!

Unicorn shenanigans

So I didn't quite know what to make of this book. Demon hunting unicorn with a dragon bodyguard. Good concept but it was a little too all over the place for me. I didn't feel a strong connection to the characters or between the characters. This was just an ok read/listen for me with Ok narration.

Super fun and creative

I really enjoyed this! It was a unique and creative storyline and a lot of fun to listen to. It was a good balance of sexiness humor and great storyline. I'm not usually a big paranormal person but this one was easy to enjoy. The narration was good and really fit the story and character well.

Unicornly Unique

The author built quite a fascinating world. This unicorn is rare, magical and has ADHD I believe lol The main character was fun and I would be happy to go on any trip with. She is a fighter and seems to protect the world from demons which means she therefore needs a dragon guardian. Personalities clash and fun ensues. The narrator did a great job bringing this unique character to life and told the story at a perfect pace.

It’s a first for me!!

This unicorn shifter book is a first that was different from the usual shifter books. It took me a little while to get into but was full of action, adventure and snark! Great narration from Melissa.

Fun and quirky listen.

You’ve never met anyone quite like Talia and her group of friends. Plenty of humor, romance, action, and optimism in this fun listen. I loved the narrator, she really captured the character’s personalities, especially Talia’s. I received a free review copy of this audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

So Much Fun!

What a great story! This story is such a fun fantasy and full of mystical beings. The narration was superb and gave that extra flair to the story. It will keep you entertained. This was my first book by this author but definitely will not be my last. I will be reading any books that are released in this series (can't wait).

Cute Storyline

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

In a whimsical world of unicorns, handsome dragon shifters, mischievous changelings, troublesome fairies, a provocative mermaid shifter, the introduction to this series is very promising. Unicorn Talia is perhaps a little spoiled and somewhat immature, but at only thirty in a lifespan of centuries, she is only a baby still and her tantrums reflect her youth. So far, so good... Then things seem to change in a swift moment. The conflicting emotions that tie unicorn and dragon together could have been developed more fully before becoming a sex marathon. I don't object to sexy scenes in a narration, but in this case, I just don't feel that the frequency is justified. It just doesn't flow well with the storyline. The writing however is pleasant as are the characters. The narrator did a splendid job in her interpretation. A cute listening experience that might develop into a better series.

Sparkly Rainbows

I adored Talia throughout the entire book with her rainbows and sparkles attitude. Her inability to stay on topic for more than a few minutes just made it all the better. Once I started listening to this story I don't think I stopped even once until it was done. I enjoyed every moment and everything they go up to was great. I really enjoyed how easy it was to fall into this world and call it home foe awhile. Melissa did an amazing job narrating and helped ring out Talia's sparkle.

Need a decisive heroine....

I loved the Story and Bren. That being said Tally irritated me with all her indecisiveness and the lying to herself that she did. She was funny though. "I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review."

Peppy unicorn and her dragon protector

Amanda Lyn here again from your favorite romance audiobook review source, Sounds Like Romance.

Don't let the optimism overwhelm you--this paranormal rom-com has great pacing and a cast of characters that round out a fresh approach to the genre.

For me, I wanted to see Talia (our resident unicorn shifter) have a harder time, maybe struggle a little more both inwardly and outwardly. Instead, she was very good at rationalizing each scenario and situation which makes for great reality... and a flat conflict. Bryn was a solid foil to the sparkles and rainbows that practically oozed from our heroine but I never really understood his insta-love for her and the sex scenes, while sexy and well-written, didn't seem to fit well within the flow of the narrative. (This coming from a listener who looooooves her sex scenes, ya'll.)

However! Melissa Schwairy knocks it out of the park with her performance and takes a story (and a main character) I wasn't in love with and made me listen to the very end. She juggled a variety of tones and voices with excellent consistency and approached the narrative with a clear voice that made me need to know how the story wrapped up.

For audiobook lovers looking for PNR with a light tone and the beginning of what looks like a continuing series, this may be just the book for you.

Unicorn Shifter

Talia is a Unicorn shifter Demon Hunter who acts like a prepubescent teen. She has been sheltered and therefore very immature for her age. I enjoyed the overall story line however the over usage of the word a**hat had me cringing - seriously there are so many adjectives there is no reason to use a single word that many times. The narrator does a great job bringing the story and characters to life. I would consider reading more in this series.

Light romance in supernatural setting

Most of the other reviewers have given this story a higher rating than me, my review will likely be in the minority. I was interested in the story and how the author set us up for the arrival of Talia's new guardian. I enjoy supernatural/paranormal romances and was looking forward to reading about a dragon/unicorn shapeshifter pairing. But I think that there were two things that made this story less appealing to me, personally. First, I couldn't reconcile Talia's immature/self-centered behaviour with the fact that she's 30 years old - especially since she's a unicorn that has essentially been in hiding all her life (it seems to me that she shouldn't be as impulsive as she seems to act for most of the story). She does some *really* immature things when it comes to her interactions with her new guardian, making me think that I would have enjoyed the story more if she were portrayed as an 18- or 19- year old rather than a 30-year old. Second, I prefer my heros to be a little more alpha-male and confident than this hero was. I confess, I think that I'm ruined when it comes to dragon shapeshifters, because Thea Harrison's Drago dragon-shifter resonated with me as incorporating an ideal blend of passion, agelessness, aggressiveness, and indulgence towards his mate. (Ironically, Drago's mate in the Thea Harrison series is a unicorn and I fell in love with her feistiness. So if I were being honest with myself, I think I was doing a sub-conscious comparison to the last dragon/unicorn series that I'd hugely enjoyed. I think that I would have done less of this sub-conscious comparison if Talia were a teenage unicorn rather than a 30 year old one; her attitudes and behaviours would have been more sensible if she were younger.

As for the narration, again, the narrator's voice was young-sounding and perfect for what I imagined to be a young-lady/unicorn who is still growing up and maturing. I increased the playback speed slightly and have no complaints about the quality of the narration - she did an excellent job with this audiobook!

not too bad, better than expected

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was an interesting book. It was kind of funny, the story line was interesting but it was a bit heavy handed on the sex part. That said, I still found that I rather enjoyed the listen. The narrator is pretty good and helped it come alive in my imagination. I'd be open to more in the series.
