Wow... I really like this. This is 5 stories of vampire brothers and their prince and how the men, who stop have smexy time after 100 years of living, found their mates... Soooo cute!!!
All the stories are good... and full of action and drama and smexy time. I really liked it. I had to take a break halfway through though.... back to back stories of the basic same format was kinda grading on my nerves. But all the stories are the same but different. So I like it.
Good sale book. Maybe a credit it nothing else you want is out... Not really a buy.
Narration was pretty good... No complaints. Powers has strong male character voices.

In my opinion, the best thing about this series is the narrator, Elizabeth Powers. She has a voice that would do justice to any book. I did not finish the box set.
If it’s all about sex then this is the series for you. This series could have been awesome if a little more attention had been paid to the plot.
In book one, the author give a brief description of the 5 vampire brothers being a part of The Vampire Coalition. Their mission is to protect humans from fallen vampires. Sadly, Ethan’s Mate doesn’t go into any detail about their mission or any adventures they have. It is all about Ethan finding his mate and sexually explicit details about their mating. One chapter alone is 24 minutes of only that. The remainder of the book explicitly leads up to the mating or after the mating. Don’t expect ANYTHING about The Vampire Coalition’s mission or adventures. The adventure that happened in book 1 was a brief moment of finding the fallen who was stalking Ethan’s mate. It was a scant description of that event and not adventurous at all. Not much of a plot.
In book 2, Rory’s Mate, again a brief run in with 3 fallen group attacking Rory. Not much on details...Just get me to my mate. Mostly, it’s graphic sex and scant plot.
I’m not sure if I can listen to the remainder of the books because of the weak plot. You almost get an impression of the brothers’ personality and yet that falls short too. There was so much opportunity for a great series – it just wasn’t fleshed out for the readers/listeners. I’ve listened to Erotic Romance novels that DO have plots. I just don’t have much interest in those that don’t. My fault, I should have researched better. However, how do you know which Paranormal Romances have substantial plots and which don’t?
If you are interested, the box set titles are:
1. Ethan’s Mate
2. Rory’s Mate
3. Nathan's Mate
4. Liam's Mate
5. Daric's Mate
I did not get past book 2 & actually didn't finish it because it was going down the same path as the first book. No substance.

What about Elizabeth Powers’s performance did you like?
I really like the way that Powers read these stories - just like other stories by Scott.
Any additional comments?
This is for mature readers only.<br/>I really liked these vampires and the premise of having their souls kept inside their soulmates until they finally meet and mate. The relationship between the brothers and their loyalty to each other is well captured and developed. Each of the men get to meet their mates - eventually. Like with most series, the authors seem to keep the best for last and this was no different.<br/>
Have listened to this multiple times and never get sick of the ultimate idea that there is a special someone for everyone.
The story lines were rushed
Very disappointed and will be requesting a refund as you need to not try and squash stories like this
