Two years ago, 20 year-old Samantha Knight experienced a life-altering trauma. Unfortunately, she can't remember what it was. Previously outgoing, fun, and carefree - it's as if someone flipped a switch on Sam's insides. Now, she's afraid of everything, socially awkward, and convinced she's going crazy. As Beyoncé would say, she woke up like this. Sam tries her best to juggle college classes, work, and the nosiest roommate ever, but behind the curtain, Sam's life is all about keeping a firm grip on her own mind. And life is kicking her ass.
Alex Channing has only one enemy in this world: werewolves. Born and raised to fight in the supernatural military, he has become an expert at hunting and killing rabid werewolves. But when Alex is bitten and infected, he finds himself racing against a ticking clock for his own survival.
Alex's search for a cure leads him to an oracle in a seaside town in California. And she gives him the reading of a lifetime. The key to his cure is a girl who forgets things, cries spontaneously, and might just be insane. And the only way she can save him is to do the one thing Alex knows is impossible: She has to remember.
Book 1 in the highly anticipated Heart Lines series, a spin-off of the best-selling and award-winning Dirty Blood series. Note: you do not have to read Dirty Blood first. You can start here!

Heather Hildenbrand has hit a home run again! Having adored her Dirty Blood series (I bought the ebooks, paperbacks and audible editions of each!!!), I couldn't wait to dive into this one!! Her Dirty Blood series is geared towards the YA market, but this is shaping up to be NA.
Anyway, this one is just as addicting as the authors previous books. It's so nice to revisit Alex (and see some Tara and Wes) and I'm beyond thrilled he got his own spin off series.Then we have Sam, who is so different than in the DB series!! You can read this as a stand alone series but personally I think you will get a better sense of the characters if you start with the DB series.
Well written and developed, with superb characters and plenty of action, this book is a must read. This author knows how to write amazing books and I can't recommend her books enough. This ends on a cliffhanger but we don't have long to wait till the next edition comes out so it's not too bad. Go buy it now, you won't be disappointed!!!
Lauren Anthony did an amazing job!! She didn't try too hard with the male voice, but still managed to portray Alex brilliantly. She had a lot of range and tones to bring the story alive. Loved the performance.
I was voluntarily provided this audiobook for free from the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

Werewolves and Oracles
While I really liked the premise of this story, the heroine, Sam, was so annoying I wanted to scream. She cried at everything. Yet I can see why she would be that way with everything that's happened to her. What's so bad is she doesn't even remember any of it or why she is so afraid of even her own shadow. However, someone else may not be so annoyed by her. I think my biggest problem is the psychological aspect of her not wanting to be out or around anyone because the whole time she was being described at the beginning, it reminded me of myself lol. And yes, I want to slap myself at time. Muribel (spelling?) was so aggravating. She would never give answers, only how Sam had to seek the answer inside her and all that. Her voice kills me but at the same time, it suits the character. There was too much of just getting to the answers only to be at the same place and taking to long to get there. We have Alex who is dying from a werewolf bite and only Sam can save him. Her memories have been wiped from her traumatic event of witnessing something. There was a lot of conversation and too much telling with not enough showing. But Alex seemed really hot and the love interest was good between them. On a positive note, there is a strong element of the Twilight series. But in a way that is unique in itself without copying. So if you like Twilight, I feel this is worth the read/listen. It's a young adult book so I'm sure young adults would love it.
The narrator did a superb job. She is great at doing different character voices.

Good story, well read
I don't listen to many books, as I read much faster. This made me slow down, to relax more.
A good story, well read. I'll get the next book :)

Absolutely wonderful story it was so good I listened to it in on sitting. It was riveting, I love the authors work and she has excelled herself with this start to a new series. The presenter reads beautifully and really did the story justice. I am looking forward immensely to listening to the next part of the story.
