Publisher's Summary

Three brutal monsters came to my rescue. Now who's going to save me from them?

Every beat of my heart is the tick of a time bomb, reminding me to squeeze as many thrills out of life as I can. Still, the last thing I expect is a horde of nightmarish monsters descending on me in the night, eager to tear me apart.

So when three more demonic figures leap out of the shadows to defend me, my choices are trust my unexpected champions...or die. Not exactly a tough decision.

The beastly men wrench me away from my home, claiming they'll keep me safe. They say there's something special about me—something the others want to devour and they mean to protect.

My monstrous saviors are just as brutal as the creatures they fought off, damaged in ways I'll never understand. I can tell they're hiding things from me. But the more we dig into the mysteries surrounding my existence, the more I catch glimpses of tenderness beneath their vicious exteriors.

And the touch of their fangs and tentacles makes me feel so shockingly alive, it's hard to remember why I ever feared them....

Until I discover the real reason they're protecting me.

More monsters to love!

Eva has done it again! We get another RH series starring the shadowkind. This time we have three "monsters," Torrent, Crag, and Lance. We haven't yet gotten their complete stories, but they all work for Rollick who is a particularly nasty high level shadowkind that owns a hotel in California. He assigns the three to follow a human woman. He doesn't really tell them why he is interested in her, just instructs them to keep an eye on her and jump in if other shadowkind take an interest in her. Torrent is instructed to contact Rollick to if and when that happens.

Quinn lives in Jacksonville, FL and is working on a college degree in architecture. She had a heart transparent at a young age and had no idea if and when her donor heart might give out on her. She has worked to live the life she has while she has it. She has taken to urban exploration and particularly likes sneaking into high places where she seems to feel more alive as she watches life below her high-rise perch. Quinn is determined to get her degree and to design structures that will live on after she is gone. As she is making her way home after dark one evening, she cuts through a park and suddenly feels a strange sensation in her chest. The next thing she knows she is under attack by strange creatures that seem to appear out of the shadows. Then, three larger beings appear and start fighting the smaller shadow forms. One of the three grabs her and launches into the air, flying her away from the fight.

Ready to learn what happens next? Well, grab the book and find out. Unfortunately, or maybe fortunately, the tale will not end here. Series, you know. (There will a few old friends that show up in the book, or at least they are old friends to those of you who know about shawdowkind!)

I was given an advanced copy of this book by the author. My review is voluntary.

Great foundation, can't wait for more!

Book 1 in Eva's newest monster RH series has some really good foundation and there were a ton of scenes that made me giggle and smile which I was sorta surprised on. I know her last monster series (this is set in the same world) was full of humor but I didnt think this one was going to be too. I enjoyed and welcomed it! I thought the characters we interesting and loved the cameos from the original series, but I will say these characters didnt grab me as much/I didnt connect with them as quickly as I Sorscha and her delicious monster men. I did overall enjoy this one and can't wait to listen to more of the audiobooks that have recently been coming out. I really appreciate this author tries to get the audio out not far after the ebook and paperback releases ❤️

I think my fav of the guys was definitely the big teddy bear gargoyle. And I love he can fly!!! I can't wait to see our tentacle man's walls come down, you could see it slowly being whittled down with Quinn's fix-it mentality. And can I just say as a fellow engineer I love how her mind works and it made me happy that the author brought that kind of thought process to her books (made me feel seen 😊). The premise of the book is intriguing, sometimes was a little convoluted/got lost in the story, but I am really excited to listen to more in the near future.

Narration was great (I think it would have been unstoppable if it was duet but dual was still good and would recommend and continue to listen to the series once I can get to them). Aiden Snow is one of my all-time favorite narrators for PNR stories, especially monsters. His timbre and performances are spectacular. Great job by both to bring the characters and story to life!!

Such a Great First Book

This was a great start to this monster RH. I loved it. All the spice is great. I was pulled into the story and want to know what happens. I just love Quinn. Lance is so funny and I cannot wait to learn more about him. The narration was perfect.

Spellbinding

This story ensnared me from the start and wouldn't let me go. I love how different it is but still familiar since it's set in a world that I love.

❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

I absolutely love this book and can't wait for the next book in the series. I love how this book is in the same world as Flirting with Monsters and I highly recommend you giving that series a listen to as well. Amber and Aiden did an amazing job narrating this book!

Great start

Great start to another great series. It is set in the same world as one of the author's other series and promises to be just as good.

Breathtaking

I loved this book. it was interesting, funny, hot, and self aware. I love the main character and love interests, and the world felt established and real. At no point did anything feel hand wavey or overlooked, and all of the walls that the characters came up against felt real, and not like cardboard boxes set up for them to knock down.
the lore is interesting, but it doesn't take over, and all of the 4 lead characters were interesting and complex. I cannot wait for the next books to be made into audiobooks so I can binge them!

Raunchy with monsters!

The narration is great.

My mind not expecting how raunchy this world could become.

The story flows at a good pace too and touches another series based in this world but not such you need to have read that series first but you will want to.

I look forward to reading the next

Choose a fantastic listen

Eva Chase the author does it again. This book 1 in a new series. . This is a reverse harem story .
Heroine is Quinn. Her heros her mates , the men who will stay with her are Torrent, Lance and Crag .
The story has suspense, mystery and twists and turns.

Quin is very anxious about her health, she had surgery on her heart and she’s thinking that the end is near . The boys Torrent, Lance and Crag have dedicated their life to look after her and stay forever
Can’t wait for book 2

Amber Lee Connors, Aiden Snow Performance was spot on . They brought the story to life

I enjoyed but….

I give this book five stars as it’s part of the Flirting with Monters universe and I love that series. My only issue is with the female narrator Amber Lee Connors well not her but the editing misses for instance in a lot of the chapters there are repeats of half a sentence or two words in a new paragraph also the very long pauses between paragraphs or sentences it was very off putting as she has more chapters than Aiden Snow.
Aiden’s chapters were flawless and flowed well. Not sure if Eva Chase listens to her audiobooks or she has someone else to listen to them before they are released so not sure how these mistakes were missed. All her other audiobooks are fine and never had issues with them until this one.
