Disappointed

I have always loved this series. Marie’s writing has always been excellent; but for some reason now she feels the need to add more descriptive sex scenes and vulgar language.

I prefer more action and interaction scenes with her family, friends & co-workers. I have imagination enough for Nicks and Sam’s sex life, without the details. And, good grief cut back on some of the vulgar language!

Eva Kaminsky’s narration is good, but I believe there are more male voices than she seems to be able to alter her voice for. It has gotten increasingly difficult to differentiate between characters and sometimes male and female characters. Maybe a male narrator for the male voices would help?.

These are the reasons I gave 3 stars for one of her books, for the first time. I would never say not to read it, because the story itself is good. There is just too much vulgar language & sex; not as much as some, but more than needs to be.

Repetitive

I have enjoyed the Fatal Series and was looking forward to this series but way to much of the last few books is about the other books and not enough about the current story. I understand that when people read the book and haven’t read the other books the author tries to bring the past history of characters into the book but it has been way to much. Also having “Sam” constantly repeating the same things in the same book is also getting annoying. Sorry. But this is how I feel. Disappointed. Need more of current story and less of rehashing the past books.

Weird Irish accent starts in chapter 12

The Irish accent that came out of nowhere in chapter 12 was extremely distracting and annoying af. Apart from that, decent performance and the story was excellent.

Incredible

I loved the Fatal series and I am loving this series just as much. Each book is so incredibly good. I get sucked in and listen to them in a single sitting. Marie Force is a fantastic writer… and Eva Kaminsky is just as good at narration. Can’t wait for the next one!!!!!!

Too much

The story line is sound, but honestly just too much. Too much gushing over one another and too much sex. I would have liked more details on the murders and the Thorns. These story lines seemed weak. At this point our female lead is just mean and frankly selfish.
I am done.

Amazing book

Wow what can I say, an absolutely brilliant and fabulous story in this ongoing series. I adore these characters. The storyline never ceases to keep me entertained and mesmerised. The kids are cute and Scotty is adorable. Add in Eli and you have the perfect family. Each page keeps me reading and not wanting to sleep until I finished. I cannot wait for the next book now. Fabulous narration as always

Couldn't turn it off

So good, loved it. My heart broke for Elijah when he told Sam & Nick his secret. I love this family so much. Cannot wait for the next one.
Eva Kaminsky is a great narrator.
