Publisher's Summary

Willa Knight: Dweller? Bad-ass? Notorious pet to five magical beings? In Blesswood, there are rules, and someone is trying to teach her how to follow them. The only problem is Willa. Which shouldn’t be anything new, since she has been a problem since birth — something her pseudo-sister Emmy would agree on. So it definitely shouldn’t be new, but it is. Because things are starting to happen that have never happened before. Things are starting to get chaotic.

Hooked on these books

The narrator is amazing the way she reads the story to you. I catch myself laughing out loud. I put my ear buds in and close my eyes and I'm in a whole other world. I just can't get enough.

A little too much tension

I’m really enjoying this series. There’s a lot of humour and a lot of love flying around, though maybe the unsatisfied sexual tension is starting to grate a little. If I were to give it a rating like movies and tv shows, this would definitely be PG. I sincerely hope it matures soon.

The only regret I have is not waiting until the entire series is complete before starting it.

VM changed a couple of her character voices this time. She has given Yale a gruff, gravelly voice while Cohen’s has become a little lighter in pitch.

Main character annoying

The story line is great but the main character is annoying. It seems like was purposefully dense and though the story is good it gets frustrating.

Narration might be lacking but the story is worthy

I loved the first book and was pumped to see the second one came out. I only wish they got someone who sounded a little more mature.

The Abcurse brother’s voices are too gruff.

The Abcurse brother’s voices are too gruff. They just don’t sound like gorgeous gods. The narrator needs to stop trying to make her voice so low.

Light hearted and Playful

Persuasion reads like an Adam Sandler movie of Fantasy novels. Take that how you'd like. Its funny and playful.

But... yes there is a but... there is a point where Willa's character goes from being cute to an annoying dimwitted dumdum who is as sharp as a balling ball. And for those who don't know - Bowling balls aren't sharp at all. I mean I understand she isn't Einstein but dang... can she have at least one meaningful thought. She is our lead character but she didn't grow/develop at all in this book.

And if there is going to be an all out brother orgy then let's get to it already. The dragging out of the sexual tension gets annoying. Every five minutes of the book we are almost about to get ready to do it but not really. That was hard to read, right. My point exactly. The story of the Gods really intrigues me but we can't get into the deep stuff because our lead character is so shallow.

What I hope for book 3 is some character development for Willa and the brothers. Then let's delve into the world of the Gods and get more insight on what's really happening.

Great fun

It's fun, pure escapism, but not as much development until quite late (the ending is excellent), compared to Trickery. The first in the series, I enjoyed much more, but will keep reading. Great fun.

Crazy Willa's adventures continue

Overall: A funny and light hearted PG romance. I enjoyed it, but I'll probably wait awhile before getting book 3. There's only so much shallow, sugar and sweet that I can handle at any one time.

Story: We're in book two and we still don't get past kissing. Hilarity and mistakes follow our Willa around. She doesn't show a lot of personality growth, but for a paranormal romantic comedy, it is great. And of course, absolutely no character development and barely any personality for the males. (He's 'strong', he's 'tricky', etc. I can barely keep their names straight with their powers... and this is at the end of book 2).

Performance: I strongly suspect our main character has some sort of diagnosis based on how long she can focus on any one thing before completely forgetting what she's doing and wandering off. Her internal monologues (that other characters can occasionally hear) are perfectly reflected by Vanessa Moyen. I'll be looking for other books with her voice since it was so much fun to listen to.

Ok I’m hooked

I’m loving this series and still wondering why it took me so long to listen. Willa is so funny and I love the connection growing between her and they guys. I’m off to listen to book 3 now and buy the rest of the series everything else can wait until I’ve finished 🙂

A Fab Continuous

Vanessa Moyen has done another fantastic job bringing Willa to life! I got more used to the different nuances in the voices done for the brothers and she does them justice. I adore the interactions and the pacing of this story and it's worth all the time listening to it! Willa's inner monologue is captured so perfectly by Vanessa with every listen <3

Ok-ish book and an easy listening...

It had potential and could have been so much better... the action is stretched and dragged to the point that you feel disconnected to the characters.

Where's the next installement already???

I loved this book, where's the next one?!?!?!?

Willa's relationship with the boys is endearing despite being completely atypical of a normal relationship. Willa Toy / Dweller baby is an oddity to all but a very likable honest character who takes quirky and weird to a whole new level.

I have a feeling we are still yet to fully realise what she actually is. And I would imagine when we do it will be a bit of a shock to all and she will gain some much deserved respect.

I feel each brother should have his own book I want to know more about each one.....I'm sad the next instalment isn't recoded as yet.

I'd also love to see a book on the &quot;Jeffrey's&quot; just because I find them really rather odd. Its like a Harry Potter &quot;Dobby&quot; character to the gods. I want them to rebel also as the structure of the dwellers / Sols / Gods is odd.

Basically I want more....as I found them light hearted and enjoyable to listen to whilst decorating my house. Very easy to dip in and out of but just as easy to get hooked on as Willa is such a funny feisty character.

Another great story/audio

read this book already and got excited when I learned it was available on audiobook, but some of my favourite books have been read by narrators that I just could not listen to so there was also some aprehension as well

My concerns were null and void, the narrator is AWESOME! She really brought this amazing story to life, her voice IS Willa! The quality is clear as a bell with no weird background noises and her voices for the other characters are excellent and slip in seamlessly

I highly recommend this book and the audio, it's lovely to listen to, relaxing, soothing, exciting and draws you deep I to the story, I very highly recommend

More Please

Book 2

In my opinion, I think it is even better (well duhhh). Because we are starting to uncover what Willa really is. Was totally hook, I listened to it over and over again.

On top of that, besides uncovering Willa each books (3 more books left to go) concentrated on different guys, hence, the colour of the books

I have to give credit to where credit is due, the Author and the narrator. It was awesome to listen as well as the characters was so believable.

Curse of the gods

This is one of my all time favourite series. I have listened to this series at least 6 times and still love it. Willa is the funniest character of all time and who wouldn’t want 5 gorgeous gods.

Good lord

The amount of sexual tension in each chapter made it incredibly cringey and difficult to listen to, I enjoyed book 1 with the flirting present every now and then but this is just too much.
