What disappointed you about WereGenes: The Complete Paranormal Romance Bundle?
I found the story line boring and weak. I've read similarly based books by Jesse Donovan meaning needing to produce a shifter child to increase numbers. I found this juvenile in writing and exceedingly boring and not worth the credit spent.
What could Amira Rain have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
The storyline could have been better written. You don't know what made bloodborn shifters other than they were power hungry, greedy, and had red eyes. What split the shifters into 2 different types? It was just not well developed.
What three words best describe Charlie Boswell’s voice?
I liked his voice, it was a nice base that was smooth and tried to make the stories better. The first story was stilted although I think it was the actual writing.
Any additional comments?
The first story was about a dragon shifter who was the commander and his wife. It revolved around her, her best friend, and their spouses. She and her friend volunteered because they needed money because their business went under due to the war between the bloodborns and the weres. The story was ok but weak and the characters were thin. It was never explained what made the bloodborns differant other than they were power hungry and had red eyes. But I did like the dogs, they were adorable. The story didn't follow the summary.
The second story was about a chief bear shifter and his spouse. She has the ability to throw knifes and this caused issues. It was important that she quickly become pregnant so she could pay for her mom's experimental cancer treatment and because the shifters were weak because the bloodborns attacked with chemical warfare weakening them. It was boring. I kept looking at the time to see how much longer till it was finished.
The third story is about a lion shifter and his spouse who was kidnapped. She is forced to mate a lion shifter commander. The bloodborn in this story is alligators. I just couldn't finish this story and skipped ahead to get through to the end then returned the book. Again this book didn't follow the summary.
The 4th story was supposed to be about a wolf shifter and I didn't even listen to it so cannot review this one.
Initially I thought this would be a good credit with 4 stories and over 20 hours. Reality is i just didn't like it and had to return it. I won't be listening to this writer again.

I like the storyline but narrator is bad. He sounds robotic. No emotion. Narrator is Charlie Boswell.
Have you ever read a book that makes you feel like a few brain cells have died painfully just trying to make it to the end? I often try to soften the blow if I don't like a book or simply don't leave a review but my head hurts so badly from just 5 hrs of this!
Sweet Jesus, I will never get these hours of my life back! I will never be able to undo the damage to my brain! *bangs head on keyboard* Why why why does having a simpleton for a leading character appeal to so many authors!? That's just lazy plot building, relying on your characters to be stupid so you can have a plot! And I haven't even gotten to the stilted writing style and even more stilted narrator (though I don't know how much he could have done given what he had to work with). I was about to cry out "Dear God please make it stop!" but then I remembered I could make it stop - I then speedily applied my finger with great relief to the stop button. And so despite my usual dedication to finishing whatever book I start this is definitely going to be a DNF. My brain cells are just too valuable to throw any more of them away. I already lost a load to my kids! Thank you for letting me vent. I am calmer now.
