I keep finding reasons to continue reading this series…even though I'm on the fence about whether I like it or not, and want to continue it. I'm not saying it's bad…it’s actually well written, with steamy sex scenes and a decent paranormal storyline, but for me personally, I'm just not that into it. I wonder if my apathetic feelings towards this series as a whole are because of the narration…she seems to imbue this particular series with this sexy, breathy voice that I'm not sure I like.  (+1 vote)
