    Inhaltsangabe

    The only thing that frightens shapeshifter Selene Rhodes more than the full moon is the idea of falling in love. Selene Rhodes has lived her whole life with a terrible secret: Not only can she take the form of any animal at will, but once a month the full moon transforms her into a fierce wolf-creature without a human conscience. Managing her condition means living by a strict routine, and more importantly, abstaining from intimate relationships with human beings. Selene is convinced that love and friendship can only bring her pain.

    Forensic pathologist Eve Thomas is well acquainted with the pain of romantic love. Swearing off relationships after having her heart broken by a cheating ex, Eve throws herself into her work: catching murderers. When Selene comes to her aid after an attack by a masked man in Golden Gate Park, Eve is shocked by how powerfully she is drawn to her mysterious savior. Shaken by her own feelings for Eve, Selene is even more terrified to realize she isn’t even close to being the scariest monster stalking San Francisco. There is someone out in the city who is killing for pleasure, and his next target is the one woman he thinks might be able to stop him: Eve.

    I expected more...

    Don't get me wrong, it's enjoyable but between the stalker-serial killer and the sex it just missed something.

    I like logic in my fantasy, some consistence some explanation and closure. If this would have been the first part of a series, were we would find out about the supernatural in modern society and get some background on shapeshifter selene then I wouldn't complain.
    In this case however we get thrown into the story and it's a good one but it doesn't feel complete.

    If you create a supernatural element in the modern world please do me the favor and integrate it properly. Give my romantic heart not just the setting and some sex, give it the substance I'm craving.

    Nonetheless I could recommend this audiobook for some light reading, äh I mean listening.

    Sexy, gefühlvoll

    Tolle Mischung aus Erotik, Geschichte & Gefühl

    Schade das es keine Fortsetzung gibt!

    Die Englische Sprecherin, spricht sehr klar gefühlvoll, mit deutlichen Pausen um die Rollen zu wechseln und Zeit zum verstehen zu haben

    This is trash and I regret buying it so much.

    You know what's "wild"? Making a character think about her pulsating p*ssy immediately after being assaulted, nearly raped and killed in broad daylight, plus, for all she knows, almost ripped to shreds by a wolf.

    That's not how it works. Every women deals with sexual violence differently - some may overcompensate, some may re-live the experience. The argument that Eve and Selene feel some kind of bond to warrant their arousal isn't that though. It's a lame excuse to skim over a trauma that changes you forever as if it never happened and come right to the - of course! - astoundingly perfect, effortlessly fulfilling sex.

    It could have been a book about two women overcoming traumatic experiences together, intertwined with one's shapeshifting abilities. It could have been an erotic shapeshifting love story where one of them happens to catch a murderer.

    This is none of those either. The reason the intense trauma Eve goes through is only mentioned vaguely is because it is used just as a reason for the two women to meet and immediately have otherwordly sex. And it's not like author had no choice.

    This is not empowering. And it doesn't matter whether it's well written or gets explained somehow later on. It's lazy and cringeworthy at best and I won't waste my time listening to this further. Two stars because at least the reader knew how to do her job.

    good ideas, ok story

    The idea to mesh a detective thriller with a fantasy romance story works surprisingly well, the only two bigger flaws I could see are the pretty boring antagonist and the cliche romance drama in the middle of the story, there needed to be more and/or better reasons why Selene couldn't reveal her secret.

    Empfehlung für dieses Hörbuch

    Das beste lesbische Hörbuch, was ich bisher gehört habe!

    Die Handlung ist klasse und spannend gehalten, wobei einige Stellen einem eine Art Law & Order Feeling verpasst. Dazu hat die romantische Entwicklung zwischen den beiden Hauptprotagonisten ein ordentliches Pacing, sodass die Entwicklung zwischen den beiden nicht überstürzt oder künstlich wirkt, was tatsächlich sehr angenehm ist und der Geschichte etwas authentisches verpasst.
    Zu guter letzt ist die Sprecherin einfach ein Genie, da sie für jede Figur eine eigene Betonung bzw. Stimmlage benutzt, was hilft die Figuren auseinander zu halten und ihre Gefühlslagen nachzuempfinden und sich mit ihnen zu freuen oder zu leiden.

    Fazit: Mit diesem Hörbuch kann man echt gar nichts falsch machen!
