License to Bite: A Paranormal Romantic Comedy (New Orleans Nocturnes Book 1) AUDIO BOOK by Carrie Pulkinen – Review by Dani Dando

Thought this was a pretty amusing tale that pleasantly surprised me. It never really took itself too seriously and had me quite literally guffawing as I listened. At first, I found the narration a little jarring especially with the voices of the male characters, but after a while, I properly got into the story and even that didn’t bother me, I was having too much fun. I mean, to be honest, the whole concept had an amusing genius to it that you just have to applaud, I mean a vampire that faints at the sight of blood? Hehe, it’s just so wonderfully daft that it’s great.

I liked Jane, I thought she was chirpy and chipper and just bursting with character, it did start to annoy me with the whole, I don’t belong to anyone schtick, feel as though the point was drummed home one too many times. It was obvious that she was strong and independent from the way she conducted herself, I really didn’t feel like we needed to be told so many times. I thought that Ethan was an interesting character, he got more entertaining as time went on and mostly then it was because he was bouncing off Jane, getting frustrated at her bubbliness. I also felt more connected to him when his past was revealed a little more.

I will say that you will not be bored with this, it’s ridiculous and unpredictable but that is half the fun. I recommend this to anyone looking for a good chuckle with a bit of spice sprinkled in.

License to Bite: A Paranormal Comedy by Carrie Pulkinen

Narrated by Hollie Jackson

 

License to Bite just made me laugh and feel good listening to it. Carrie Pulkinen is a relatively new author to me, but from the two books I have listened to she is fast becoming an author of choice for me. Jane is hilarious and Ethan is reserved, but together they are perfect. Sophie and Gaston add in the perfect foil to Jane and Ethan. This story was full of witty dialogue and New Orleans charm. I look forward to listening to the rest of the books in New Orleans Nocturnes series.

This is the first audio I have listen to narrated by Hollie Jackson. Her accent was great and she really hit the laugh factor. I will be keeping my out for other books narrated by her.

A Paranormal Romantic Comedy 

New Orleans Nocturnes 

Book 1

AUDIO BOOK

By Carrie Pulkinen 

☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ 

This is a full length audible romantic novel. Let’s step into the paranormal vampire teacher vs student vs romance. The romantic comedy we are looking for.

 

Jane is the Governor’s daughter who gets what she wants, when she wants. Visiting New Orleans she falls to her demise, waking up dead. Struggling to accommodate her new Death/life. Finding blood is the last thing she wants to do. Oh lets not forget she passes out at the sight of blood. Ethan had his heart broken when he lost his true love. Jane however reminds him of her. Thinking she is reincarnated, he must get to know Jane. Although shortly after marking her, he realizes his mistake. Now he must do what he can to keep them both from getting staked.

 

Carrie Pulkinen has done it again. This story captivated my interest on page one. The characters Jane and Ethan both keep this comedy going. I have to say this story kept me laughing. As well as cheering for them both. This well written romance was fun to read. I can’t wait to see where the story will take us next. Well done Carrie Pulkinen! Well Done!

Flipping the Bird: A Paranormal Chick Lit Novel (Shift Creek book 1) by Carrie Pulkinen – Review by Erin Wolf

Flipping the Bird (Shift Creek, #1)Flipping the Bird by Carrie Pulkinen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I give Flipping the Bird: A Paranormal Chick Lit Novel (Shift Creek Book 1) by Carrie Pulkinen, 5 stars.

This author never fails to amaze me by how good each and every one of her books are. This is a new series that I fell in love with in the very beginning. Alice is so much fun. Not to mention that I have very rarely (if at all) seen a crow shifter. This makes it even more refreshing . As you can tell by the title, this book is written a fun, entertaining way and you will be unable to put it down until you finish. Besides the fun aspect of the book, there is the romantic angle as well as suspense on what will happen to the town.

Overall, it is a quirky, fun supernatural romance that will leave you wanting more. I highly recommend this book.

Flipping the Bird (Shift Creek, #1)Flipping the Bird by Carrie Pulkinen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this fun, lighthearted romance combined with some delightful supernatural elements. Alice Crawford is a salvage artist who makes art by collecting junk and also a crow shifter and lives in a place called Shift Creek. The creek is named shift creek as every full moon it back flows and rejuvenates its healing properties. Donovan Drake is a warlock, who has lost his father and his magic is locked. He has come to the creek to unlock his magic with the healing powers of the creek. But when he finds himself falling for the crow shifter, he knows things are not turning out as he had planned. The story is action packed, filled with hilarious moments, romance and mystery. It is a fairly short and an entertaining read.

SYNOPSIS –
Em Georgiou looks like the sort of girl you take home to your family. But she’s got a PhD to finish and a career to kick-start first. And besides, Em likes men too much to settle down—much to her father’s exasperation.
Joel Scott doesn’t do relationships. He’s too focused on his architecture business. So when his hard-to-please, cut-throat developer client suggests that he ‘gets to know’ his daughter Em, Joel is prepared to add the spoiled daddy’s girl to his to-do list for the sake of his career. Except Em is way more capable than her father gives her credit for. And she’s certainly not the type of woman you strike off your to-do list.
Can Joel convince Em that he’s not just trying to impress her father? Or that you can fall in love when you don’t want to… even if it involves facing up to a dark past you’d rather forget?

Aiko (The Heartstrings Series Book 1) by Brooke May – Review by Rochelle Ferguson

Aiko (Heartstrings #1)Aiko by Brooke May
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was a light rom-com read that could be read in a day. Aiko is one of Cupid’s assistants who is supposed to help his workload but has made past mistakes that resulted in her being exiled. However, she is given one more chance to help Alejandro where she grapples with a lack of confidence in her abilities. Overall, the story flowed well and I enjoyed the concept as well as the characters.

Five out of five stars

I loved this book the first time I read it and the audio takes it to another level entirely. I felt the narrator did a beautiful job breathing life into Pulkinen’s words and providing emotion and context to this fantastic paranormal romantic comedy. I loved every minute and cannot recommend it highly enough.
