Publisher's Summary

Never make a deal with a billionaire, particularly one who’s a vampire....

The deal is simple: spend a month with a mysterious billionaire who is the owner of Louisiana’s La Petite Mort Casino, and he’ll forget my father’s gambling debts. If it means saving our family home and business, I’ll do anything.

With his strong, sexy, take charge arrogance, Nicolas Dupont is a mystery to me. But it doesn’t matter how hot he is. This is purely a business arrangement. Nic can have any woman he wants and it makes no sense that he'd be interested in a virgin like me. I’m certainly not about to fall for a guy who thinks he can own me.

So I go hunting for a way to free myself. When I discover I’m the hunted, and there are those who want my blood, Nic claims he can protect me. But can I trust one of his kind?

When this began, I thought I might lose everything. Now I’m not sure if I’ll make it out alive....

Taken by the Vampire King is 66,000 words, is the first audiobook in a trilogy, and ends on a cliff-hanger. It's recommended for 18+.

Waste of time

Don’t waste your time - especially if you do not like cliffhanger endings because it will take three books to finish the story and I was so unimpressed with the first book I will not even be reading the second book at all or the third of course.

Can't Unhear & Won't Have To

Might be a very good story. I'll never know until I read it. The narrators' affected (?) NOLA accents are unlistenable; hers more than his, imo. It's obvious that they're truly trying to do a good read, though and that's the reason that I chose 2-☆'s for Performance instead of one. Really, I tried THREE times to get through this audio! May go for a fourth listen if I am ever feeling particularly masochistic. To be fair, I have loved these narrators for other series and have enthusiastically rated them with 5-☆'s. Gave 3-☆ rating for Overall and Story in hopeful benefit of the doubt as I have enjoyed other books by these authors.

Has potential

There is a lot of time spent in character building without much progress in the story. It ends in a cliffhanger which sucks when the next book isn’t out yet. Overall good writing, strong heroine and mediocre hero. Without giving away too much, if you’re looking for a non-stop erotic novel-this isn’t it. In fact, there’s no sex at all. Some kissing and heavy petting is all you will find in this “romance.” I’d like to see more feeling come from the characters.

Hate narration

I can’t get into the story because of the horrible country accents the narrators are trying to pull off. I actually love their narration normally but they really do a horrible country accent.😩

Alot of inconsistencies

First he must listen to all three books to understand the entire story, this is basically one book spread out in three books. Then there are a lot of inconsistencies, first Nick says he was a born vampire then he says he wasn't a human for long.... Then he tells his mate he's only ever sired one vampire and then later he says he's never sired a vampire... When you get to book two the three main issues that happen are because the female just randomly runs away, even though she admits that it's not safe and she's weak and she can't do anything. There are better books. But because I can't start something and not finish it I completed all three books... But the amount of inconsistencies and then stupid decisions that were made just to make a plot in the storyline not worth it.

Really enjoyed

Great story, narrators are good. Recommend highly.
Didn't realize it was a cliffhanger glad the next book is out and was able to get it.
