Publisher's Summary

I thought being kicked out would allow me to be free, but here I was, trapped once again.

On a dark night, Violet is roaming the streets - bloody, limping, and looking for a place to spend the night. Trapped by an abusive father for four years, being kicked out of that so-called home might have been the best thing to happen to her in years. Never mind the amount of pain she's in, never mind that she's terrified of what could be lurking the darkened alleys this bone-chilling night....

She's finally free. All she has to do is find a place to stay. Turns out she doesn't have to worry for long. Shadow, a vampire lusting for blood, is prowling the same street she's on. A hundred years after he was turned, he knows the drill like the back of his hand: Suck humans dry and leave the scene of the crime. But that night, Shadow does the unthinkable - he kidnaps Violet. 

Taken away from everything she knows, Violet is thrown into the world of vampires, creatures she believed existed only in her books. Convinced that her captor's soul is as black as his name implies, she desperately tries to make her escape.

The longer she's there, the more danger she's in. However, another mysterious force starts targeting her, and Violet's already fragile mind starts to fray apart. Who could be behind this twisted plot? Will she get out of this deadly situation alive? And when she finds the stuff of her nightmares is the only one protecting her, will she defy every common sense and learn to trust once more? 

Broken Wings is a vampire paranormal romance that's sure to get your blood flowing. Sink your teeth in this fresh, exciting listening experience!

Great overall

First I have to start off by saying that this book was given to me free of charge for a review of the audiobook, but as always, this does not change my opinion and will not determine how I review the book or the rating that I give it.

Talking about Cliches

I got this ARC via audiobook boom and this is my voluntary review. This book was so filled with cliches and actions that were so inconsistent with the words. You are a kidnapped victim and you fuss and argue with him. You are a victim of abuse and instead of leaving you go upstairs and pack then come back down and tell the abuser off. So many other instances that made me want to scream. Vampires are standing over her and she pretends to be asleep so she can hear what they are saying. This one just made me cringe all the way through. Realizing that you are kidnapped by a vampire and you say I think I am going to faint. Oh boy.

couldn't do it

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

So, I struggled with this one... It was just bad... It was full of overused tropes and just felt shallow. The main character was just annoying. The narration is done well, but it just wasn't enough to keep my interest. After about the halfway mark I just couldn't do it anymore and turned it off.

Vampire romance

It is not what I expected at the beginning but this only intrigued me so I kept on listening but like other reviewers on here I felt it was too long and could be cut down.
I also hate it when the main character, especially if it is a female, does silly things like go to a friend who can't really do much instead of going to someone in authority. Why?
That is not the only thing, there are other things that I found hard to believe, however, even with this I liked the book.
As for the narrator, I had no problem with her except the characters are based in England so I expected a british narrator or at least the narrators voice to change. But we don't get this. so whenever, we are told that they are in london I am surprised.

Broken Wings

The narrator saved this story for me with on point pacing and easy to understand character voices. Broken Wings has a good overall story and concept however the execution is lacking. A decent editor would be able to turn this into a better read. For now it is just Okay in my opinion. There is little character depth and alot of the decisions made don't make sense. If I were reading this I would have skimmed or skipped alot since it was a tad drawn out in places.

Just Didn’t Work For Me

I usually like paranormal vampire stories...when there is at least some sort of connection..I just didn’t get any in this story.
The h has a mother who leaves home and the husband and daughter can’t figure out why...well Dad starts physically and emotionally beating up the daughter...wonder how he treated Mom?
When daughter is kicked out she lands up being kidnapped and held by a vampire who is also emotionally abusive constantly threatening to kill her or others..what’s the attraction.
I didn’t find the H to be likable at any point...the h basically not the brightest. Some of the dialogue was just silly..
The narrator spoke in a stilted manner that wasn’t pleasant to listen to..and I actually preferred he male voice...any dialogue was even better than the basics narration...She was the best when she was yelling as the father.
I just didn’t it enjoyable.

It was okay

Violet’s life was perfect at one point, but it all went to hell when her mother left. Her father turned to abuse, and Violet slowly began to pine away wishing for nothing but freedom. When she’s granted her wish, however, it’s not anything like she imagines it will be. She’s kidnapped by a vampire.

So I’m torn about what to say for this book. I fell into a love/hate relationship with it.

The plot was definitely intriguing, and it kept me listening. I had to know how the story ended, but as for the rest, I was disappointed. There are moments that are overexplained, and the characters are rather two-dimensional. Quite a few times they make some very questionable decisions. Violet has been kidnapped, but she doesn’t want to tell the police out of fear of what will happen to her so she reaches out to her best friend instead? It didn’t make a lot of sense to me at some places, but the author made up for it with pages full of suspense.

The narrator did an okay job with the readings and the main female vocals, but after a little while, it got a bit confusing because all the characters sounded the same.

All in all, I think this is an enjoyable read. Dark, twisted, and suspenseful.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Pretty Good

This was a first time for me listening to this author and narrator. They both did a good job.

The story ended on a very positive note, and I hope that there will be a follow up, the book was a bit drawn out unnecessary with the all the inner debating if Shadow is a monster or not, other than that I really enjoyed it.

The narrator gave each character their own voice, there is a few words where I could hear an accent but I am not sure if that was because of the book because of where it is taking place or if it is just how she pronounces certain words. She did a great job in reading the story with so much emotion.

It was OK!

It was just ok for me! The narration was good. This book kind of droned on and on for me mainly due to repetition. This author does a good job with the characters. This was my first book by this author and I would be willing to read more of her books. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Broken Wings

I wanted to love this. I did. I just couldn't. It started out with an intriguing concept and I loved that there was no insta-love between MC's. Our heroine's reactions were what I would think are pretty realistic given her situation. However, this is supposed to be a romance. The book is over 9 hours long. There is one kiss before the 9 hour mark and up until the end the heroine can't make up her mind as to whether the hero is going to kill her or not. The characters are barely even nice to each other, let alone gearing up for romance. On top of this, the writing style is very stilted. I don't think there is a single contraction in the entire book. I know my kids do this when they are desperate to make their word count on school essays, but in book form it doesn't read as natural conversation at all. It was glaringly obvious while listening to it. Also, the story takes place in London, but there are no "British" words or euphemisms and the narration is done with an American accent. Not a big deal if the story were set in America but the characters repeatedly point out that they are in London, even though none of the story itself has any ties there. It could just have easily been set anywhere. I'm sorry, like I said in the beginning, I really, truly wanted to love this book. I did. But I just couldn't do it. I received a free copy of this book for review and am voluntarily leaving this honest review.
