I usually prefer to read a book before I listen to it because I find it more difficult to pick up on the details if I don't. The reader made this book an exception for me. There was some difficulty because the author deals with flashbacks and the main character talks to herself at times. Without being able to see the text that gets a little confusing. Alyssa Bresnahan took St. Crow's awesome characters and really brought them to life.

I'm wondering where Lili St.Crow gets her title ideas. Just thougth I'd throw that out there... there wasn't as much jealousy as I'd expect in a book named as such... well there's some, but I've seen MUCH more jealousy elsewhere. Please don't make me bring up Twilight. Which is why I expected LOADS of jealousy from this book. Alas, it's just a teaser word.
I must admit I hesitated in getting this because the narrator had two strikes against her for poor reading. Surprisingly, she pulled through on this one, making me wonder what she was dealing with on the previous reads... no more awkward stops or random slow motion reading when a guy is talking. So just for shaping up I gave her her star back. Does this book deserve 4 stars? Maybe not... but it's a definite improvement on the first two which I rated 3 stars, so there ya go.
Jealousy kicked the story up a notch! I can see why it had to be a thrid novel but it should have really been the second. It was the kind of boost this story needed. Plenty of action, things explained, the other guy finally stayed hear the heroine instead of randomly showing up... I admit I was ready for a good old fashioned were-boy vs. vamp-boy fight for the girl but that tension was taken away and I have yet to decide whether I liked that direction or not. The book left something hanging and wrapped up too quickly, making you feel like you kinda got short changed, but the amount of info given more than made up for it.
Over all, I'm ready for Dru to quit bellyaching and kick some butt... even when she did kick some butt she was whining the whole time about how she had to kick butt and how she had to train to kick butt. So do it... don't whine. You're a rare breed with serious skills... girl-power up or something.
