This story is a slow burn followed by a great deal of excitement. The first part is all about getting to know the main characters as they learn about each other, and learn to love each other. After that, having myself come to know and love each character, their subsequent trials and agonies are as tantalising as the resolution of their relationships.
Tess’ warm and enfolding narration is superb. With her help I felt entirely engrossed, sharing their connections and emotions.
The story wasn't what I expected. It was even better then I expected. Love it.
This book comes with a warning. Read that warning. Everything in that warning is true and it is awesome!
Honestly this book probably should be sitting in the erotica section. There is plenty of sex going on. However, unlike most of the books in that section this actually has a good story.(sorry to that section, but I am no stranger to it) The characters have arcs and develop and grow as people. There are a couple subplots that are free from most of the overt sexuality of the rest of the book. The story is pretty typical paranormal fantasy. It has some great character work, but does stumble into cliche now and again; I don't hold that against it though. I genuinely wanted to know what happened to the character and wanted the story to move along. I never felt the sex was intrusive, but also didn't keep reading just to get to the next sex scene.
If you are an adult who isn't freaked out by sex, and it actually is pretty vanilla compared to how it could have gone, then listen and enjoy. You will probably want to use earbuds if you have kids.
Tess Irondale does a great job as a narrator. Sometime with material like this the narrator can sound uncomfortable, bored, or even a little too into it. She does a great job riding that line while giving a believable and very listenable read. I actually have problems listening to female narrators for long stretches she does an excellent job, and I binge listened to this book and never grew weary or irritated with the voice in my ear.

I really enjoyed this story. The parts that didn't include the steamy sexy stuff we're just as good as the guilty pleasure of listening to the dirty parts. Rachel was one of my favorite characters of any recent books I've listened to. Can't wait to see where the next one takes me. Tess Irondale really brings all the characters to life in a very good performance. I couldn't stop listening
