What would have made Seductive Powers better?
A stronger, less predictable, more believable plot
Would you ever listen to anything by Rebecca Royce again?
Which character – as performed by Buck J. Deat – was your favorite?
Draco - Buck did a great job of capturing the essence of him. Buck actually did a great job of bringing each of the characters to life. His excellent narrating skills kept me listening to the book.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
maybe disappointment. I didn't have any strong reactions to it.

I have read or listen to a great amount of books in the Fantasy/PNR genre, so I was excited when I read the synopsis of this book. It intrigued me, that idea of a superhero (or Guardian as they are called in the book) having a corporation where he charges for his services. It makes sense, when you are rob, the cops don’t volunteer their services they get paid for their time. But that’s beside the point, of this review. Anyways, so Draco is a guardian and Wendy is her handler. Basically Wendy is his glorified personal assistant. She keeps track of his daily clients, investigates all his clients and their problem before he sits down to meet with them, makes sure he gets enough rest and sees a medic if injured and so on. But Draco’s nemesis soon learns that his greatest weakness is the people closest to him. That puts Wendy in danger and under the protection of her own guardian.
The narrator voice is terrible for this book. His regular voice is just fine but when he tries to do different voices for the characters he fails miserably. I wanted the voice for the hero to masculine, deep, rich and delicious. Instead the narrator’s voice had the texture of an old man speaking and sometimes just downright comical. I don’t want to visualize my grandfather speaking when I think of the hero. I want Chris Hemsworth not Adam West. He made all the male characters sound wrong, so wrong.
IMO, if you can read the book, I would probably do that. It's a great story just not worth the listen.
