My Review:

Story Impressions –

How have I never heard of this series? Talking cats? Oooh, fun! A safe haven for all races of supernaturals? I’m there. In this book, we have a hot billionaire, his dhampir little boy, a gorgon hired to organize their lives, and a wicked vamp queen trying to track them down. I couldn’t get enough of this book and want more! This story is obviously paranormal rom com with cool twists. The descriptive narration is vivid and makes your feel like you’re right in on the action. The dialogue is funny. The action is real, even though it’s paranormal. The romance is classic rom com set in paranormal-land. The characters reel you in, especially little Danny. He’s so young and doesn’t know what’s going on. He shifts from boy to bat then back to boy, like all the time. He needs stability and a little magic, which this town provides. The main characters have chemistry galore. They sizzle and it was such a blast watching them fall in love. Even the evil vamp skank grows on you.

Narrator’s overall voice –

Rebecca Winder has a vibrant voice with great personality to it. She takes each character and brings them to light using inflection.

Does the narrator fit the characters?

Yes, she does. Rebecca uses her voice as an instrument, so each character has their own voice. From Meddy to Quinn to Danny to all the minor characters, it’s a full cast of characters Rebecca recreates with ease.

Narrator’s reading style –

Rebecca’s reading style is effortless, and I found it easy to get caught up in the story. The pronunciation is clear, no matter which character is speaking.

Narrator’s impact on reading experience –

Rebecca adds a new level of enjoyment for me. Her characterizations of Sharon Buchbinder’s writing is brilliant, and I would love to listen to it again and again.

Narrator’s pacing –

The pacing is well done with plenty of dramatic pauses so the reader can follow along without getting lost.

Audiobook flow –

The audiobook flowed from start to finish with the right balance of humor, romance, and intrigue. I didn’t want to stop reading.

What makes this audiobook unique –

What makes this unique is the storyline and the way Rebecca brough it to life. I just finished reading it and I want to read it again.

Would I recommend this audiobook –

YES! I would recommend this to any reader looking for a cozy paranormal romance where cats rule the town. There are a full cast of characters and Rebecca brings each one to life. Highly recommend!
