Believe the reviews.

I read the reviews prior to ordering this complications of authors. I am currently reading Kim Harrison's 'The Hollows' series. It is listed as book 4.5. This book has nothing to do with the series except that it has a super natural being in it. It's an irritating story that is a standalone with none of the characters in our books. it does show what happened to the wish Ivy got a few books prior. ivy should have used the wish because it was wasted on this girl. I'm gonna ask for my credit back.

Romance not paranormal

What would have made Hotter Than Hell better?

For me, more story line less sex.

Has Hotter Than Hell turned you off from other books in this genre?

I think this book belongs in romance section not paranormal

What about Teresa Willis’s performance did you like?

Performance very good.The reason I finished book.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

When not in a long drawn out sex passage stories were ok.

Any additional comments?

My fault. Purchased collection because I really like author Kim Harrison. Figured this would be like charlaine Harris collections. Harris collections have Introduced me to a great many of the authors I follow today.
I Preordered kim harrisons next story, but Very disappointed with this collection.

No a Hollows book. No tie in with series.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Tied other series into the Hollow series

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

disappointment for being misled that this was book 4.5 in the Hollows series.

Any additional comments?

I'm tempted to ask for my money back.

Worst narrator

This narrator is the worst I've ever listened to. The stories were pretty good. A few were just boring, but overall I would have loved listening to this if it wasn't for the narrator. She changes volumes randomly throughout the story so you have to crank it up only to be deafened when she decides to start borderline yelling. And she takes words like "sweater" and says them in the weirdest ways possible. "Swa-teer" She has random pauses, and just overall doesn't get how to narrate. Awful.

give it 2 stars ......

I am rarely so harsh on a book, but this one greatly disappointed me. The narration was terrible, not that she didn't have a pleasant enough voice, but the characterizations and the flow of the dialoge were so lacking. There was no difference between character's voices, male or female, young or old, etc.....just reading, not storytelling, and very irritating reading at that. The stories are rushed, more in an effort to squeeze a plot, mostly very thin and lacking plots, inbetween what was sad to mediocre sex scenes. Worth my credit, No, worth the cash, No.... Enough said

Disappointing

I got this book because I was going thru Kim Harrison's "Hollows" books. As it was on the book list, I just grabbed it without really reading up on it, so I didn't realize that it was a book of short stories. I should have recognized that's was it was due to it being marked as book 4.5, and the title is a pretty big giveaway that it was going to be some hot steamy romance.

The problem I had with this is that it almost has none of Kim Harrison's "Hollows" in it, and the short story she does have seems like it was in that world but was so sort and light on information that if I didn't see this being on the book list for that I may have not made the connection.

Moving on from my lack of reading book descriptions, I still didn't like this book because it is fundamentally flawed. While I have no problem with some hot steamy romance novels, it doesn't work in short stories. A sex scene takes up a certain amount of time, and that means in these short stories there just isn't enough plot. There was one story that had maybe 5 minutes of character development before it could be summed up with "and then I had sex with a minotaur." There may have been more story after that, but it was so little introduction that I just couldn't bring myself to care about the feeling of the characters so I skipped to the next one half way thru.

Another thing that I really don't like about short story books like this is that there is no break down in the book description about each story and who it is by. This wouldn't be a big thing, and it would make it so much better. Please do this Audible.

Don't take my negativity for a horrible review. There were some stories that were very well written, it just needs to be a longer story with less sex in order to get any true story horseshoed into it.

overall, not the best. If you are getting it for a Kim Harrison Hollows book, I would pass. If you just want some sexy short stories, I would say about half of them are pretty darn good.

Not at all what I thought it would be

I didn't look too much into the book. I saw it was listed as 4.5 and only read a brief portion of the description. I thought for some reason this would be some collection of small stories based in the Hollows Universe but it seems almost unconnected. There are certainly non of the characters involved in the story and it reads more like a cheap porn novel with just enough of a story to keep the sex going. There is a good amount of MM and MMF sex scenes from the section I had listened too before I gave up and returned it for the credit. Only listened to a few chapters before I decided I couldn't stand to listen at all any more. I almost never return books but and this is in fact only the second one I have ever done so with. I strongly suggest skipping this one and going on the regular story. It should really NOT be listed as 4.5.
