- Fair Game by Patricia Briggs <— ELAINA IS ADDICTED TO THIS AUDIOBOOK!
Elaina: I have this book on audio (Holter Graham’s voice is *dreamy*), and have listened to it an obscene number of times lol It’s my favorite of the series.
I love this book so much lol I can practically quote it along with the audio reading. Isaac’s diatribe about ‘dumbass’ werewolves is worth it if nothing else.
…Aaaand now I need to listen to this again.
