This book is an epic adventure of love, loyality and pain. It tackles some really graffic ways a person can be hurt by others. In particular there is a rape described. Normally this would put me off a book, however, it is handled with care and respect and is necessary to the story. Filled with mysteries, tantalising twists, and a foreshadowing of a growing greater purpose. I can't recommend this book enough. A must read.

Romantic, picturesque, funny. Another enjoyable romance novel by a very talented author. I really liked the narrator and the way Lennox plays with the attraction of power and fame ultimately being an obstacle to love. As always my heart feels warmer after reading a Lucy Lennox novel and that's all I ask for. xx

Great ending.

As always with series, this book was heartwarming fairy tale crossed with a porno. Listening to this love story feels a lot like drinking hot soup on a cold day. Thoroughly comforting.

This book knows how to keep a reader on the edge of their seat. So much better than the movie. XD

This book could, and should have been 8 hours. I think even Carmody was over the series at this point, it certainly reads that way. I was a huge fan of this series and managed to plow through the last books even as the story became glacially slow. Simply put, this book is a complete dud. Where were her beta readers on this one? Habitat needed to be cut out like cancer and the first 20 hours are harder to listen to then my parents lectures on sex ed. Huge disappointment.

The first book set up a lot of drama for book 2 that was never realised. Development of side characters was non-existant and frustrating. Here's a big plot hole that bothered me: in book one it's established that proper treatment of a 'sheep' or person you are feeding from is to get them off after or during your bite. Betsy is bothered in the first book by the King of the Vampires sleeping with three women at once while feeding but in the second book these women disappear and you never see or hear of the King feeding again. I'd hoped that maybe this drama would at least show up in book three but it seems Davidson just decided it was easier to gloss over the king's playboy habits and pretend he's suddenly a dotting sycophant.

A must read.

I loved reading this years ago and loved listening to it even more. I was scared to see that Isobella Carmody had decided to narrate her own book but she absolutely knocked this out of the park. I would recommend this book to anyone!

Great ending saved this.

In two letters: P.U.

Welcome to "Where We Left Off" a tale of disillusionment where a handsome, intelligent young man falls for a guy completely void of anything likable.

Story line in three dot points:
* Will tells Leo not to change for others
* Leo proceeds to try and change himself for Will
* Leo and Will both settle for a romance that will satisfy neither.

I spent the whole book hopping that Leo would just dump Will's toxic ass and hook up with Tom.

The real question this book raises is who the hell hurt Roan Parrish so bad that he thought this book was a good idea? Poor bastard lost his faith in love. I can only hope that he finds someone who can bring back the romance for him. xx

A religious experience.

In a word: Wow.

Roan Parrish knocked this book out of the park.

If this book doesn't have you questioning your sexuality, connections to others and expand your desire to help the world then you're already dead.

I. am. shook.
