Audiobook Review – Tall, Dark and Panther by Milly Taiden
Maya Zara is a curvy woman sick and tired of men who think she should settle. She loves her curves and wants to find someone who will love them too. When she meets Gerri Wilder and signs up for a date with a shifter, Maya has no idea what’s in store for her.
Noah Wright has had the hots for his curvy neighbor for months. Too bad she’s got a boyfriend. When he allows Gerri to set him up on a date, he never expected for her to get him the woman he and his panther have lusted after.
A stalking ex and a crazy family make Maya’s life a living hell. Both will try to tear them apart. She’ll have to figure out what she wants with Noah before losing a chance at love with the lonely panther.
Reader Note: This book contains panty-melting sex (the kind that makes you need fudge and a cold shower), adult language (we like some freaky dirty talk), and possible violence. If this is not the kind of stuff you like to read, skip this book. However, if you like dirty, raunchy sex with a sexy panther on one curvy sarcastic girl, then this is right up your alley. Enjoy!
I enjoy this series, it is light fun reading. Sure, at times it feels a bit pattern, which can happen with a premise like this. There is always a sassy curvy gal and an Alpha shifter type guy.
This go around, I kind of thought Noah’s Alpha-ness was a touch lacking. He knows she is his mate, but he sits and watches instead of making things happen. Sigh, I prefer the take charge sort. I really like Maya, even though she is kind of the same as every other heroine in this series. That being said, it is still an enjoyable read and kept me plenty entertained. The POV is mixed, so you get to see all sides of the story.
The steam is, as always, on point!! If you are looking for an ultra hawt read, this is definitely a great pick! All the naughty detail you could want drawn out in exquisite fashion!! Oh my, this will get ya all worked up in a jiffy!
Lauren Sweet has been with the series since the start. I like her reads and she has a quick pace. She has a very peppy feel to her voice, which adds to the fun quality of the listen. Her men could be a touch gruffer, but that is nitpicking.
I am sticking with this series, I am just hoping the next book shakes things up a little!
