This is the fourth Misadventures book and it stands out as a bit unique in the series because of its science fiction-y premise. It’s like erotica/romance for nerds/geeks and I am so here for it! It was super fast paced (though at times a little too break neck speed for me) and there were so many words (you’ll get what I mean if you read it). I don’t feel like I got to know the characters as well as I wanted to, but I think this is going to be a series and I will be reading it. This was smart, sexy, and fun and I can’t wait for more!! 4 out of 5 wine glasses.
Oh boy... I hate doing this. But I think I'm done with the Misadventures series. I didn't like the first book in the series. Read/listened to a few other books by other authors to clean my pallet and consume something I liked. Came back and listened to this one on Audible.
Boy was this not something I can recommend. Without giving the plot away, I listened to over 6 hours of this book, only for it to end with nothing being accomplished. I don't know why Reece was targeted by the Consortium. We don't really know what was done to him, or if he is the only success up to this point. He says at one point, that he is afraid that the Consortium will come and put him in the room to do more experimenting on him, but this guy has powers now. Other than the shield or whatever it was that Angelique used to get the better of him, HE HAS POWERS! Not everyone is going to be able to keep him down. It just made no sense.
And if you are trying to keep your woman alive and safe, why would you do what he did? I just don't understand this book. There are so many questions/holes left open. He never explained why he was in LA. I didn't understand the faking where he was for 6 months. Was that done by the Consortium.
I just can't anymore... I greatly respect all authors for putting themselves out there. I just think that the formula, or whatever it is they are doing for this series, isn't the greatest. But I'm just one person and as I always say... take my opinion with a grain of salt. It means nothing in the grand scheme of things. It's just how I feel and I won't be venturing into any more of this series.
I also didn't really enjoy the male narrator. He would speak very strangely sometimes. So odd.
It’s a shame that they didn’t get someone else to read the male POV, the woman who does the female lead was great. The male is stilted, boring and ill suited to the role. I couldn’t finish listening because he drove me bonkers. It’s a shame because I would have liked it a lot if the casting had of been better.
