Fun, well written, well acted

More a romance than speculative fiction this book was everything you would want from the genre. Not many surprises but very enjoyable plot and great characters. Sex scenes not avoided by author and seemed authentic to me.

Abby Craden

Just the most brilliant reader of all time

The story was fun. Initially I thought it had more holes in it than a spaghetti sieve...
however, in the end I thoroughly enjoyed the story... just a bit of good fun with some writing gems from E.J. Noyes

Highly recommended

Read It, Listen to It whatever! Highly Recommend

Ok! 24 hours since I finished listening to Reaping the Benefits. I have thought of all these one liners Wow! Simply Marvellous! But quite frankly, short of a billboard in the Brisbane City Mall, nothing will do. Another book of EJ Noyes that I thought hmmm not really my kind of book. But after putting off listening to Alone and then loving it, I was somewhat less hesitant this time. I am so glad because EJ Noyes you have excelled again. Love it! Somewhat Harry Potterish.... wait! I know you are probably thinking what kind of Les fic is this? Well it’s fun and romantic and not at all serious but definitely worth a listen or read. It had me giggling more than once. Love your work as always EJ Noyes and Abby Craden you definitely rock as per usual. Thank you for another great book. Definitely my favourite author and narrator.

Excellent escapism

I downloaded this audiobook without reading the blurb because I've always enjoyed Noyes' books, so I was very pleasantly surprised to discover that this had elements of the paranormal mixed into it. It would be grossly unfair to say that COVID was entirely responsible for how much I enjoyed this book (although it played a supporting part) because it's an excellent book. The paranormal parts of the book help distract from the less than pleasant everyday reality that we're currently living through. The characters are well formed and the dialogue is witty. It would also be remiss of me to not mention that Abby Craden did an excellent job of bringing the characters to life. I can confidently say that this is my favourite-est-est Noyes book, so much so I'm listening to it for the second time almost immediately after finishing it.

Supernatural Lady Lovin

I adored this one! My love of supernatural and lesbian romance tied into one scratched an itch I didn't know was there. Narrator did a fantastic job as always.

Soooo Satisfying

I have been anticipating to finally get to hear the combination of Noyes and Craden once more and they did not disappoint. I loved every freaking character. Morgan and Jane you cannot help but to love and root for and the two main side characters CC and Jane's mother Pamela were the perfect compliments to Morgan and Jane. CC can be my wing man anytime. Honestly CC almost, just almost stole the show. My only negative is that it ended so soon. Please savor it, don't blink, or it will be over. I was immediately wanting more. Mrs. Noyes, if you are listening, I would love to experience more from this world you have created and any new wonderful characters you would add to the story. Wonderful!

OMG!!!!

So I’ve read all of E.J. Noyes other books and I love her writing, the characters she creates and the story line. When I saw this book I was instantly excited until I read what it was about. I am a simple straightforward (semi-real life) love story type and this was like nothing I had read before. I’ve never be drawn to the “fantasy fiction” but THIS BOOK WAS PHENOMENAL!!! The detail of the characters and how they all came to be and how intricately they were woven. The details of the characters background and questions you asked while reading it were answered as if you were speaking with the author and characters themselves.

Creative Romance

I know the concept may be different, but reading about love when death and eternity are readily acceptable concepts is refreshing. It was well done. There is also one scene of seduction that tests the resolve of a person struggling to hold on to control as a means to defend against losing more of herself. It was simultaneously hot and conceptually beautiful, when she loses control, she finally realizes who she is and who she's always been. At least, that's my thoughts. Great read and wonderful narration by AC

Great Listen!

Another great one from E.J. Noyes! I was a little hesitant to buy this one because I am not into paranormal books...However, This one is very unique and barely a paranormal book. It is well written and E.J. Noyes brings depth to each character. It is also very witty and funny! Well done!!

Better then I thought it would be.

I was pleasantly surprised that the world mechanics worked. Not overly descriptive but enough that I could suspend disbelief.
Smart, funny moments and a sweet love story.
the only complaint I have is that it felt like it ended abruptly but that may just have been me not ready to go.
As always Abby Craden was perfect.

Fantastic

Beautiful, wonderful, incredible, breathtaking. Well thought out ideas and back stories. Well written characters with believable interactions between each other. Beautiful rollercoaster of a love story. This is definitely my favorite Lesbian fiction book I have read/listened to so far!

I loved it!

A total "feel good." So much very clever wry/tounge-in-cheek humor, so many laughs. Just the right amount of angst/soul searching & TGS (tastefully graphic sex). A happily ever after (extreme). Love and romance. And Abby Craden does her (as usual) awesome job!

Great Listen!

You won't regret getting this audiobook. C'mon, E.J. NOYES and the amazing Abby Craden!!! of course I loved this book, but my fav E.J. Noyes book is ALONE. Seriously, buy both books, but the one you will not be able to stop listening to and when you have to stop, you'll be telling someone about it, is ALONE. Both books are 5 STARS all the way! I hope to see more Noyes/Craden soon...

It's EJ Noyes...! It's Abby Craden...!

Ej Noyes is in my 'five geniuses of lesfic' list, and so far I have loved all her work and all the reading performances on Audible.
I've listened to this book twice, before reviewing, to work out my reaction to it. And I guess I feel a little underwhelmed. I mean, it's EJ Noyes! She's a great writer, so this book is better than the vast majority of lesfic out there, but it's not EJ's best IMHO. If you know your Jane Austen, this is my Northanger Abbey: great and fun and full of sparkling moments, but NOT Pride and Prejudice!
I wont detail my problems with it, I'll leave that up to you. It's certainly worth a credit and certainly lots to love. I'll listen again and often, unlike several of my other lesfic choices.
I also, for the first time ever, have to say I think I've found a chink in Abby Craden's armour... Her British accent is not up to being the main character in a long novel.... 🙄 Just saying!

Fantastic!

It's the first book I wouldn't stop...the story is so good I really can't wait for a follow-up...(please tell me there will be more for these two?!) As you can guess I'm not good writing reviews, I never write, but this is book is too good, I needed to say something about it.

Love it!

Love this book, I've listened to it 3 times already. I really enjoy the variety of the stories/plot lines in E.J. Noyes' books and Abby Craden is a talented narrator. I have chosen books on Audible just because she narrated it.

couldn't stand the narration

really couldn't understand why this narrator was chosen. Her strange, clipped accent was so off putting and I couldn't bear listening.
