I love how strong their friendships have become in this one everybody needs a good group of friends but I did not like how the narrator was so breathless and everything she sound like she needed to catch her breath all the time but other than that what a good story

Would you listen to Sweet Reckoning again? Why?
maybe, the narrator was incredibly annoying gasping after EVERY sentence.
How could the performance have been better?
she could've spoken normally like in the first two books
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
really sweet ending
Any additional comments?
This narrator was amazing for the first two books but in this one she gasps after every single sentence. It was very distracting.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
The final chapter in the Sweet triology was good - but not great.
Earlier in the year the end of the Divergent triology left me raging with anger, as it was just THAT BAD. A few weeks ago the ending of the Partials triology left me smiling and happily content. It pretty much tied up all loose ends and had a great finale too.
The end of the Sweet trilogy was, well, meh!. I'd been hoping for so much, but most of the book just seemed to be about sex, sex, sex - and wanting to have sex, sex, sex.
Don't get me wrong, the very last chapter ALMOST had me in tears, but I'd loved these characters sooo much over the years that ANY sentimental stuff would have set me blubbing.
To put it in a nutshell: Too much sex, too little time spent with/on the demons. From book one I had expected an epic WAR between heaven and hell - huge, intense, all-encompassing.
Sweet Reckoning didn't have a war. It didn't even have a Harry Potter meets Voldemort. It just had a party in a nightclub with a few naughty clubbers....
Good, but not great.
ALSO: The reader on this audio book was pretty much awful. She sounded so choked up with emotion at some points that I thought she was having an asthma attack. There was literally a gargle from her during one dramatic scene - surely that could have been edited out?
Who was your favorite character and why?
Kai - great hero/anti-hero.
What didn’t you like about Erin Mallon’s performance?

If this book were a film would you go see it?

Can I have my money back?

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I recommend the series in general Anna is strong yet a goodie goodie i know some people can't stand that and yet the love interest she is paired with is the total opposite yet brings out a "different side" to her . The Nephilim in the series are raised differently based on their sin so naturally they are going to hate their parents for treating them badly
What was one of the most memorable moments of Sweet Reckoning?
Plane wedding and honey moon?
Which scene did you most enjoy?
“Halfway through the meal, while we were all laughing and telling stories, I made the mistake of placing my hand on Kaidan's upper thigh without thinking.
He let out a groan loud enough to silence the room. I slipped my hand back into my own lap, and Kaidan cleared his throat.
"Wow," he said. "The corn pudding is fantastic."
I snorted, which started a round of snickers. Patti smiled at Kaidan like he was a precious boy.
"Isn't it good? Anna found the recipe a few years ago. She's a great cook."
"Mm-hm." Kaidan gave a tight-lipped smile. "That she is.”
