Summary

Galen

Lust.

My ultimate downfall,

And demise.

I'm shackled to a life I can't escape.

A life I never asked for.

Now, I'm trapped - soulless,

Burdened by a Watcher lurking within.

He wants out, he wants her.

But I can't let that happen,

Won't let that happen.

She's mine.

Somehow that doesn't matter.

I can't have what I crave.

What I want.

What I need.

As the Watcher fights me,

Battles for control,

I refuse to succumb.

It's a power I'll never relinquish.

I can't unleash what lies beneath,

Without paying the ultimate price,

And losing her in the end.

A tale of Dark,intense,sensual Obsession

Blade-sharp and pared to the bone, this book is truly original stories by best-selling, It lures you to the dark side. perfectly twisted tales with a measure of evil, a dash of steamy romance, and a dose of all encompassing,soul deep obsession. Expect the unexpected....All the previous glowing 5 star reviews sum up this intense, riveting and beautifully addictive .This Duet is deliciously dark, it's smoking h.h.h.hot, it's wickedly intense, it's got shocking twists, it's perfectly paced, it's temptingly twisted, it's got gripping suspense, it's filled with sensational secrets.Im still reeling from the experience of listening to this book. pulse pounding intense dark romance. True to her style, she doesn't hold back..... not one little bit. I love her stories, but have to mentally prepare before diving in. I know it's going to be a bumpy ride, filled with intense edge of your seat suspense, emotions that are all over the place, pleasure and pain sex, and plot twists you won't see coming! As with any good Kim Loraine story, she really puts her characters through the ringer with tortured pasts, secrets, and lives who will cross paths, and intertwine in mysterious ways. This tale obsession was dark, twisted, and I was totally mesmerized.... couldn't stop listening, even if I wanted too!
The narration was awesome! Watt and Fouche really knows how to capture all the dark emotions, bring the characters to life, and suck the listener right in. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review.As always this is my honest opinion .

Enthralling

A fantastic story of wanting what you shouldn’t have. The pull and pull between Galen and Sariel, the vampire and fallen Angel/ watcher that shares his consciousness is just riveting. Constantly wondering who was going to win out. Then there is Reece, the human woman they are struggling over for. For years, Sariel has been dormant, but Reece awakens him, and if looking for and hoping he’s found his soulmate isn’t enough, the fallen are wanting back into Heaven and need Sariel to do it. Enter a fight to survive too. Such an enthralling story and I’m looking forward to the next book. Having read other spin-off series first, it was fun seeing some familiar characters show up.

Will M Watt and Susan Fouche perform this book in duet. I love Will and thought he did a great job for the most part. This was my first Susan book, and I feel that her performance wasn’t for me.

Be ready for a book hangover!

Paranormal romance I am told, and I think to myself, I just don't know if I can listen to this. It is not my choice of genre, but it's Kim Loraine! I love her Golden Beach series, so I have to listen. I will muddle through....but oh was I completely entranced! This book from start to finish captured my attention. Vampires, fallen angels, friends, incubus, wooden stakes, sunlight...so many intricate details are woven into this story of Galen, Reece and Sariel, not even mentioning the incredibly erotic scenes. Kim Loraine is a master at integrating the supporting cast of characters too, giving us Devin, Gabriel and even Lucifer, making them memorable and important. Passion, heat, anger, sadness and every other emotion you can think of will be felt as you read this book. I can tell you I am looking forward to book two and the continuing struggle between heaven and hell...you know it will be a wild ride.

Will M Watt and Susan Fouche...this narrating team is complete perfection.Their talent is beyond extraordinary. Will's ability to switch between Irish brogue and an American accent is flawless and Susan is able to make you feel every emotion that Reece is going through. I could not have enjoyed this book more! Love it!

Easy listen

This was an interesting audio. I did enjoy the strong female lead & the hot vampire sex. However, I thought the writing was a little Elementry. It was an easy book to listen to while engaged in other activities. It didn't take much concentration in order to grasp the storyline. I am interested to see with the next book holds.

PARANORMAL PERFECTION EXPERTLY NARRATED

I didn't realize, when I started this book, just how caught up I'd be in the uniqueness of the storyline, the touching backstories of its vivid characters and the emotional erotic love story that evolved. It's far more than the usual vampire/human romance because Irish Galen shares his body with American Fallen Angel Sariel and it's never been a problem before.. but seeing Reece not only awakens Galen's dormant lust.. it also awakens Sariel's need to find his lost soulmate. Both want Reece.. but only one can win - Reece only wants one of them and, as each man fights the other for control, they are unaware that danger is coming their way.

Along with Galen Reece and Sariel you really FEEL the struggles and torment of each man, learn with them the fantasy and the folklore of the Watchers and come to the realization that only one man can win while the other must break. And, if that's not turmoil enough, this gifted author cleverly weaves in the battle between Heaven and Hell which is nowhere near over by the end of this book. It's told from three POV's, the main heroes are multi-layered, there's great secondary characters, hot sex scenes, tear your heart out emotional angst, sacrifice, bloodshed, passion and a beautiful love story emerged from all the drama. But, what made this story come alive was the excellent duet-style narration (each keeping to their own genders) by the talented team of narrators.. especially Will M. Watt who seemlessly changed many accents and was awesome every single chapter and they both made this story flow smoothly.

Worth a credit? Oh boy YES.. it's paranormal perfection.

MIND-BLOWING!!

If you could sum up Waking the Watcher in three words, what would they be?

ABSOBLOODYLUTELY AMAZING!!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Waking the Watcher?

Is hard to choose when it comes a story you live through the outstanding work of the narrator. The whole experience was just phenomenal!!

What about Will M. Watt and Susan Fouche ’s performance did you like?

They don't just read or narrate the story. They make the experience really wonderful by performing the characters to the "T" and bringing them to life!!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

YES

Any additional comments?

I wish other authors pay attention to the final work o at least when is half way done, so whoever is on charge of the final revision don't release a mediocre audiobook.

A story about obsession, chemistry & the forbiden

This is my first PNR from this author. The writing is very solid and the overall plot is established clearly. It's a story about wanting what you can't have and the consequences of what happens when you pursue the forbidden. There are many sexy and hot scenes and they are very well written. You feel the heat fly off the page and into your ears with the great narration. These are the types of stories that beg to be performed and am very happy of how these narrators bring these characters to life. The Duet of Will and Susan is very well performed and I think what made me connect with the story even more. For those who enjoy J.R. Ward's BDB, this story has that impulsive/ fatal attraction feel that makes you come back for more.

I was immediately pulled into its vortex!

Any additional comments?
The Waking the Watcher is an extraordinary audiobook!

That can turn any non-PNR into a fan!
I’ve never been one for PNR! Like it would give me a rash! That is how bad my aversion to the subject was! Well, that was until I read and audio listened to Waking the Watcher! I was immediately pulled into its vortex, its realm and was so drawn to the storyline. I didn't even get more than 3 hours sleep that night! You can say I was like a junkie needing its fix! So I devoured it, consumed it and plain old drooled all over this story! WOW!!!
This erotic fantasy will have you dropping everything! For that one taste of its divine ecstasy and pleasure!! A hands down #oneclick!!! That can slay me any day!

Awesome Listen!!! Duet to Perfection

I am amazed with this story. Typically I do not listen to many paranormal books, so it was outside my preferred genre. This is the first book that featured vampires and angels, heaven and hell that I have encountered. I thought the narration on this duet was perfection. I love how both Will M Watt and Susan Fouche were able to put so many emotions into their performance of the various characters. I have read and listened to other books by Kim Loraine and love her style. She is able to put so much into the books with great characters, interesting storyline, unexpected twists, humor, incredible imagery and great sex. I am so glad that I tried something outside my preferred genre. This book is part of a series and I found it to be a standalone listen. I will definitely continue listening to the next book Denying the Watcher.
