Publisher's Summary

“Helen gives us the dark, tormented vampire hero we all love in a sensual paranormal romance with all the feels.” ~NYT Bestseller J.S. Scott

Dante Gabriel is starving. What he craves is red gold - human blood. After being held captive as a blood slave to a female vampire for years, he has finally escaped. Unchained at last, he follows his nose to the nearest blood bank to sate his hunger.

ER nurse Erin Hamilton expects just another busy night shift...until she finds a gorgeous stranger vandalizing the hospital blood bank. Though her logic tells her to turn him in, she’s pulled by stronger and unfamiliar emotions to protect the man who seems oddly infatuated with her scent. Chemistry sizzles between them, but Dante, plagued by nightmares of his time in captivity, fears he won’t be able to control himself...especially when he discovers a secret she doesn’t even know she’s hiding.

Obsessive much?

I struggled with this one big time. Every chapter is literally exactly the same as the one before, one person lusting over the other in the same ways over and over. if you're looking for an obsessed, all encompassing, and erotic novel where the characters do not think about anything or anyone else other than bring with each other- this is one for you.

Waste of a credit

I hadn’t realized the one credit would only get me an intro to the characters, it was short and devastatingly cheesy. The narrators were over the top dramatic or repetitious in intonation. Regrets.

And I bought this why?

The story was very weak. Early on I figured out who the abductor was. After listening to parts 1-3 that are included in this volume, I have no interest in listening to any more of it. If all you want is hot sex and don't care about a story, then this book is for you. Personally, I prefer to have a better story and less hot sex.

I think the performance would have been more enjoyable if Lauren always voiced the female's dialog and thoughts and John always voiced the male's dialog and thoughts.

Unchained blood-bond Saga one through three

the books are like a crossover between True Blood and Fifty Shades of Grey God they're good but they're awfully short you have to buy them in a group group of three I think it is can't wait for December

Waste of a credit!

This has got to be the worst audio book I’ve ever listened too. The narrators were horrible especially the male voice of Dante, he sounds like a 70’s porn actor. And the author writes like an old white man who has watched entirely to much 70’s porn! Using phrases like huge throbbing cock and sweet juicy pussy, who even talks like this??? Yeah that’s a NO from me, can’t do it!!

REPETITIVE

Same scenes over and over and over and over. Was read wonderfully but written poorly. The overall story was weak and drawn out.

Tripe

To read the synapses one would think there was an actual story. Let me break down the series. Oh god I want her/ him....I must not....why do I keep coming back.....must have you..... In about a hundred different sentence versions. Once you glean the plot, that is it. NO development. Now the last book has a tad bit of story to it but the drivel makes it hard to appreciate. If you guess the end at basically the beginning of the book.....sad story. I doubt any awards were given to this Author. Even as a sex book it is shit. Now I don't need much plot to enjoy those, but bringing the main characters to the brink and backing off.....in a sad and pathetic fashion.....so many times, predictably....gawd. The series is pathetic. Don't wast your brain space OR your credits on this.

Terrible book

There's nothing good about this book it's derivitive, the main male character is alpha, derogatory, and disrespectful. Bad plot, bad female lead, poorly written, not entertaining and ridiculously annoying. Don't waste your money.

Can’t get past the Man reading

Man reading this ruins the book for me! I can’t get past his cheesy, graphic novel approach to reading the book. Struggled through 15 chapters finally gave up!!

Very poor narration

The female narrator is monotone and robotic which makes it very very difficult to listen to her. The male narrator sounds as if he is trying way too hard to have a smouldering sexy voice. I am truly going to try to finish but it is very difficult to continue listening. I may have to just read the book on my own.
