This was an excellent book and gave you a better understanding into what happens in Washington as well as the complexities of running a campaign. Amusing and insightful. It gave me a greater appreciation of Senator Franken.

This was an excellent start to the trilogy. As always Jemisin is brilliant when it comes to developing her world and the characters that reside in it. Can't wait for the next book. The narrator was excellent as well. Would have liked to savor this book but listened straight through
The book kept me hooked until the very end and I loved how the author slowly opened up each character. I became invested in A.J. and his developing relationship with Mia, Amy and the rest of the town. Narration was fantastic.
Retelling with no substance
I realize that many erotic novels do not have great story lines or character builds but based on past reviews from this author I thought I would try this book. Unfortunately I was very disappointed and thought I was listening to a bad porn movie! I'm not sure if the narrator also helped with this view or it was just the writing. I could not empathize or get into the characters at all and it was one sex scene after another. I was unable to finish and not sure this is worth a credit. Not even sure it rates a star.
Should have stuck with past narrator
Was disappointed in the change in narrator, it really effected the enjoyment in the book. Would suggest to read this one rather than listen, if you plan to continue on with the series.
Good start to series
Can't wait to listen to the next book. Was glad to see the characters develop and through out the storyline especially Harlow. The narrator was great!

One of the best Paranormal/Urban Fantasy Series!
I've listened to and read McGuire, Harrison, Andrews, Armstrong, Briggs, Butcher, Chance, Estep, Frost, Hamilton, Harkness, Harris, Hearne, Hunter, Jones, Neill and Ward, ... All good urban paranormal series but I keep coming back to Richelle Mead's Georgina Kincaid Succubus Series. The author was able to draw you into caring for the characters and storyline. You couldn't wait for the next book to arrive and the narrator was excellent. I have listened to this series four times and have recommended to others. Like Jim Butcher's Dresden's files and Faith Hunter's Jane Yellowrock series, you really care about the main character and will come back again and again to re-read or hear the story. This is a keeper!
Not worth your money or credits!
This a review for all three books.
Not sure what the author was trying to achieve. Agatha Christie meets Fiifty Shades!
Bought all three books and kept hoping to like the story and the characters. Granted, it was a difficult subject to write about (kidnapping, rape, abuse) but I felt the author did a disservice in bringing in implausible plots in order to pull things together to create a "happily ever after" tidy package at the end.
The characters were one dimensional, inflexible, oblivious and with no redeeming qualities. All the time I was listening to this, I was thinking "Really? Really? The authors writing style was hard to listen to - over the top and the characters were always so extreme on the emotional scale. If this was a movie it would be over acted.
I think the narrator did the best she could with the material she had. Would not recommend. Waste of credits and money!

Awful! Awful, awful
Dismal story line, wimpy heroine, appalling dialog, awful narrator. Not worth it even if it was free.
