This was a thrill to listen to it really was. The only down side to the book was the narrator. She made the male voices sound creepy and pretty much all the same. I know that when narrators have to read a character that isn't their own gender they do a pretty good job of it but Ms Skyye made the male characters sound unappealing and unattractive.
The author did a beautiful job of writing the story and it was a true joy to listen to. I could hardly stop. I am looking forward to the rest of the books in this series. I can't wait to see what new characters and plot twist Jessica Lane will throw our way. I will hope that Ms. Skyye will not be reading the remaining books after book 2.

I'm not going to go into details of what the book is about since the summary gave a decent book description. I've listened to this book and the second one in the series. I can't wait for the third book. The narrator did a good job for the most part. The male voices could be better at times, but they could also be a lot worse. There was a good balance of action, humor and romance. I would definitely recommend this book.

Would you try another book written by Jessie Lane or narrated by Chandra Skyye?
Although others have commented negatively on Chandrasekhar Skyye's narrating it's generally ok but I do agree that her male voices are a bit strange.
The book overall was lacking in story line but full of mild sex scenes. Even in the middle of crisis they took time out for the main characters to have considerable time to have sex.
What could Jessie Lane have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
Practice male voices to make them more realistic.
Did Big Bad Bite inspire you to do anything?
Puke and skip bits!!!!!
Any additional comments?
Won't listen to any more by this author.
What would have made Big Bad Bite better?
Jenna is a young, feisty "other" with a secret that has kept her in hiding for her entire life, but this strong character wants to get out and live - which of course gets her into all sorts of trouble. This tale would be an easy and appealing read but is unfortunately let down by two things: 1) the narrator who tries to give different voices to the (mostly male) characters but slows the pace so much that it is difficult to keep track and continue listening; and 2) sometimes the story focuses for far too long on a scene or a line of thought from the character. Get on with it, already!
Would you ever listen to anything by Jessie Lane again?
I think I will look for Jessie Lane's books in the Kindle library from now on.
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Chandra Skyye?
I have only listened to three other audio books so far, so can't recommend an alternative narrator (Penelope Keith is fantastic but not really the right person for this genre!).
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Big Bad Bite?
See first comment.
Any additional comments?
Couldn't finish this one - definitely Chandra Skye needs to review her method of portraying characters!
