Publisher's Summary

All three audiobooks in the international best-selling Evelyn Maynard Trilogy.

When Evelyn Maynard receives a scholarship to the exclusive Bradford Hills Institute, she’s determined to make a fresh start. The Institute is world renowned for educating and training Variants - the 18 percent of the population fortunate enough to have superhuman abilities. As a human, she’s lucky to be admitted.

She’s done with fake identities, running and lying but once again, she finds herself surrounded by secrets.

Some she’s been keeping her whole life.

Some have been kept from her.

Some she finds herself dragged into....

Ethan, Josh, Tyler, and Alec have some of the rarest Variant abilities Evelyn has ever seen. They fascinate, intrigue, and attract her, but is it their abilities, their own secrets or something more that Evelyn can’t seem to stay away from? The secrets they keep could drag Evelyn so deep into their dangerous and exciting world that she’ll never be the same.

And the answers she finds could get them all killed.

Great book!

I absolutely loved this book! My only complaint is that it ended! I would love to read more about the characters though. Definitely need a follow up book.

Terrific story

Variant Lost

The following ratings are out of 5:
Narration: 🎧🎧🎧
Romance: ❤️💙💜💛❤️
Heat/Steam: 🔥🔥🔥
Story/Plot: 📙📕📗📙📘
World building: 🌎🌏🌍🌎🌍
Character development: 🤨☺️🙃😎🥰

The heroine: Eve - She grew up with her single mother, they moved from place to place changing names each time. They were running from someone but her mother will never tell her who or why or anything really. After her mother dies in a plane crash, Eve is invited to be a student at the Bradford Hills Institute. She is a human but has an interest in science, especially having to do with Variant DNA and abilities.

The Hero(es): Tyler (a.k.a. Gabe) – He is an administrator at the Institute, very handsome and all the women want him. He is a Variant and his power is as a lie detector.
Ethan (a.k.a. Kid) - He is a student at the Institute, a Variant with the power of fire.
Alec (a.k.a. Master of Pain) – He works for a mysterious organization that rescued Eve from the ocean after the plane crash in which only she and the Variant Co-pilot survived. He is a Variant and his power is causing pain. Almost everyone gives him a wide berth due to the fact that sometimes his power leaks from him and gives people nearby headaches.
Josh - Kid’s friend who grew up with the other guys. He is a Variant with the power of Telekinesis.

The Love Story: Eve is enjoying the institute and having a home where before she moved from place to place. The four guys seem extremely interested in her from the start. All four guys grew up together and went through some things when they were young. The four guys live together. They are all Variants (which another word for people with DNA that gives them special abilities).

The audio/narration on this one was very odd. The female narrator was perfect for this one. The character of Eve is 18 years old and the narrator’s voice reminded me of a Emma Roberts at about that age, so it was perfect. Though the male narrator reminded me of a movie trailer narrator, the voices for the 4 guys sounded way too old and had the inflection like he was narrating movie trailers “In a world…”.

Though one thing I really liked about the narration on this book was that even though it was told in Eve’s POV, the male narrator did the male voices. In all the audiobooks I have listened to, when it is the female POV, the female does the male voices and when it is the male POV the male does the female voices. I always thought it should be this way. Though I would have liked it to be multiple POV. I like to hear the Heroes POV.

The story was great. Though as far as romance, it is a slow burn. The reverse harem aspect is coming along though there isn’t a lot of intimate contact between the main characters as of yet. That is fine though as it is more realistic than a bunch of people jumping into bed together or the heroine jumping in and out of each of the men’s beds. The Variant storyline is extremely interesting and the secrets are even more so. I am completely enjoying this so far.

Vital Found

The following ratings are out of 5:
Narration: 🎧🎧🎧🎧
Romance: ❤️💙💜💛❤️
Heat/Steam: 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Story/Plot: 📙📕📗📙📘
World building: 🌎🌏🌍🌎🌍
Character development: 🤨☺️🙃😎🥰

The heroine: Eve (a.k.a. Evelyn) - She now knows that she is the Vital for the 4 Heroes. A Vital is a conduit to the light for the guys. The Vital absorbs the light and can filter it into the Variant(s) that they are bonded to. Eve is bonded to all 4 of the Heroes.

The Hero(es): Tyler (a.k.a. Gabe) – with the light he gets from Eve, he can not only determine that others are telling lies, but what they are lying about and what is the truth behind the lie.
Ethan (a.k.a. Kid) - He is gaining control of his fire ability.
Josh - He has the power of Telekinesis and with the light infusions from Eve, he is working on being able to fly.
Alec (a.k.a. Master of Pain) – He can send pain out in huge waves. He is doing everything he can to deny his bond with Eve.

The Love Story: The relationship between Alec and Eve is strained to say the least at the start of this book. Also Eve doesn’t really know what her relationship with Tyler is. Since he works for the administration at the Institute, she sees him as a sort of authority figure so she is confused about that and thinks he doesn’t have romantic feelings for her.

The audio/narration is growing on me with the second book, though I still don’t like the male narration. Not only is the voice too old sounding for these young guys, the inflection he uses for Tyler is too chipper and still reminds me of a movie trailer voice. Also, the inflection he uses for Ethan is way too surfer dude and dumb sounding, some of the writing for Ethan shows him as not the brightest of the four, but this voice makes him sound so dumb that it is hard to see what Eve would see in him.

The story was great. I liked it as much as the first book. There was the acrimony between the hate groups and the Variants, the continued issues between Eve and Tyler, and the animosity that Alec seems to hold for Eve. The storylines just keep getting more interesting.

The heroine: Eve (a.k.a. Evelyn) - She is bonded to all 4 of the Heroes.

The Hero(es): Tyler (a.k.a. Gabe) – a Variant with the ability to read minds/detect lies.
Ethan (a.k.a. Kid) - a Variant with a fire ability.
Josh - A Variant with the power of Telekinesis.
Alec (a.k.a. Master of Pain) – A Variant with the ability to cause pain.

The Love Story: Eve has solidified the bond between her and Tyler, Ethan and Josh, but Alec is a different story.

This book had the most action and was definitely the best of the three. Like the last books I really enjoyed the narration from the female voice, but the male voice just didn’t fit her four guys. Though I must say that this guy is good at using different voices and inflections for the different male characters. The woman is the same. I could definitely tell when each of the different characters was speaking.

The storyline about Eve glowing was terrific. There were also some terrific villains in this series. Eve’s biological father trying to use her (and other Vitals) to transfer abilities from one person to another was extremely interesting. This book was definitely the steamiest of the series. There were quite a few intimate scenes between Eve and her Variants.

Fantastic RH paranormal trilogy

I loved this trilogy so very much. The story is unique and action packed. The characters are interesting and the way the grow in their dynamic group was great. The friendships and family aspects along with the crazed evil guy just made this a series I didn't want to put down.
