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!!

Who doesn't like unicorns?

The hype for unicorns is wild at the moment and when I saw an audiobook about unicorns I just had to listen to it.
This is the first in a series of Team Unicorn Talia and it is a great start to the series. Talia White is a unicorn shifter and also a demon tracker. She has just been assigned a new dragon protector, Bryn he’s actually a dragon shifter and his job is to protect her life no matter what and kill demons. She isn’t happy about it to start with but it isn’t long before Talia is attracted to him. The chemistry between them was undeniable. This audiobook had it all romance, paranormal, mythical, excitement, humor, and action, it kept me engaged, and the narrator was great with her different voices, her voice was easy , she set the mood brilliantly.

funny!

this was a well written, funny magical romp!
Talias easily distracted mental ramblings were highly amusing and some times irritating but always entertaining.
warning! cliffhanger.

I Want a Team Unicorn Talia Shirt!

This was an awesome start to the Team Unicorn Talia series and I loved it way more than I originally thought I would! Talia is a rare unicorn shifter/ seer that hunts demons who has an extremely colorful, optimistic, and snarky personality. Bryn, a dragon shifter, is her new warrior/ guardian that is tasked to help her on her missions and protect her life at any cost. There’s burning forbidden chemistry between the two, a demon on the loose, children that her magic doesn’t work on, and she’s having visions of her deceased mother. I loved the uniqueness and total weirdness of this book between magical color auras during specific times and magically spiked pancakes. Bryn and Talia’s personalities are so different, you can’t help but laugh at her attempts to make him her BFF and unbroody. I liked the addition of Arthurian legend mixed into the story and how the Excalibur changed to fit Talia. This book was filled with obscene uses of “asshat”, steamy and awkward moments, magic, and great characters!
Melissa did an incredible job with this narration! She voiced Talia spot on and also did a great job with Bryn and Maddie. Her tone elevated the experience with her enthusiasm and snarkiness and left me wanting so much more!

Fun and Quirky Listen

So, if I'm being entirely honest, this book was significantly better than I thought it would be and I actually finished it in one sitting. I loved the characters and the unique world that this author has built. I don't think I've ever listened to a Unicorn Shifter story and it was a real treat to see how this author put this story together. I also like how she meshed in a little bit of Dragon shifter, mermaid and fae into the mix. It was a fun and quirky listen that has some heat written into it and well. This was definitely a very happy surprise as a listen. I actually would love to hear more of this series and author.

The narration is perfect. She perfectly captures the unique nature of our Unicorn and all of the challenges she endures and overcomes. Great job!

Fun paranormal romance

What a fun book! The characters, especially Talia, are hilarious. I smiled throughout the introduction because she’s the kind of girl that I’m pretty sure I’d love to be friends with. Go Team Unicorn Talia! (I loved the mermaid best friend too- the banter is excellent)

Poor Bryn, the serious, stoic dragon (plus “something else”) shifter. But these two together fit the adage, opposites attract, and we follow them as they hunt demons. But they face many issues- including a new kind of bad guy that Talia can't sense. There's a bit of intrigue, mystery and suspense as we follow them while they hunt demons.

The narrator, Melissa Schwairy, has the perfect voice for Talia. Fun and just cheerful- if optimism had a voice, it would be Melissa's.

I liked the audiobook so much that I bought the next in the series. Please note that this book is more of a happily for now- a "to be continued" is added in at the end of the audiobook.

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.

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).

not for me sorry!

I wanted to love this, I really did.
But I'm at 80% and after taking multiple breaks, it's still just grating on my nerves and I can't take anymore. I'm sorry I hate leaving bad reviews but this is just tedious to me.
It started out ok and i loved the concept and I thought it would be funny but it's not.

Unique and fun! Totally entertaining!

Listened to the story on Audible. Narrator does a good job; she fits the characters well. An enjoyable listen.

Unique, fun, cute story! Love the whole unicorn shifter angle; Talia fits how I'd expect a unicorn shifter to act, she's quirky to the extreme. It can get annoying at times, but overall, she's lots of fun. The romance aspect is really sweet too. Bryn and Talia have good chemistry; there's a bit of a enemies to lovers type thing, which was enjoyable. Bryn isn't too happy about his life being uprooted to be Talia's new guardian, but he respects his duty. Bryn is a dragon shifter; his family has been tasked with protecting the unicorns, Talia is the only one left though. Talia has the ability to sense demons, so she finds the demons while her guardian warrior takes them out. The banter between Talia and Bryn was fun; Talia for sure brings Bryn out of his comfort zone. I was getting tired of Talia's back and forth on Bryn though; that almost made me knock a star off, but overall, I was totally entertained. The demon hunting was lots of fun too! I've already picked up the next book because I enjoyed this one a lot. There wasn't an audio version for the 2nd book, but the ebook version was only 99 cents, so I'm happy with that!

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.
