BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front) - This book was a "good" listen, and had some interesting twists, but never really hooked me to the point where I had to listen to it everywhere I went to see what was going to happen next.
Plot: The baseline plot of this book (and I presume the series) is a love story, between you guessed it a human female and a vampire. The difference is there is an element of greek mythology and other god-like beings that round out the fight against good and evil. There was a good balance between love story and the good vs evil and the author did a good job of bringing it all together at the end.
Narrator: Pretty Bad! Not bad enough that I couldn't finish but I'm pretty sure I would have liked the book (and perhaps rated it higher) if there was a different reader. I found the readers voice to be pitchy and down right painful to my ears when she'd change voices for different characters. The book is set in New Orleans and her awful attempt at accents and male voices made it difficult to listen to. I liked the plot enough to make it through the whole book and even though Ms. MacDuffie reads the second book I'll listen to it in order to get to the 3rd and 4th where they change narrators!!!

Is there anything you would change about this book?
The narrator! She is horrible and her voice is so annoying there is no way I will be listenting to this book and this is just the beginning. This narrotor doesn't know the difference between a Louisiana accent 'creole' and a southern belle 'naselly voice'.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
The story line appears to be great but i can't get past that narrators voice.
What didn’t you like about Carrington MacDuffie’s performance?
Could you see Night Pleasures being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Any additional comments?
Need to be able to change narrators.
