I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
The story grabbed my interest right away because I'm a real sucker for all misunderstood tattooed bad boys. 4.5 Stars! Shaw has been in love with Rule since she was fourteen. Shaw has been a big part of the Archer family since the day Remy (Rule's twin brother) basically took her under his wing, but it’s always been Rule she’s secretly been in love with. When Remy’s tragic death deals the family a blow, Shaw is determined to keep them together. She picks Rule up every Sunday for brunch with the family to make sure he goes. Each time she does, her heart breaks a little more having to witness the string of one night stands paraded in front of her every time. Rule has no idea that Shaw has loved him so long. He always assumed that Remy and Shaw were a couple, so he never paid much attention to her. Plus, she is the polar opposite to Rule. He’s all tatted & pierced up and does what he wants, she’s the rich perfect princess always striving to live up to everyone’s expectations. Rules feels tortured through every Sunday brunch with his family that blames him for his brother’s death. He’s always been the black sheep of the family but Remy’s death has strained their relationship to the breaking point. Things get interesting when Rule finally wakes up and really notices Shaw. (I refuse to give spoilers away so I will keep things vague) Rule knows if he pursues anything with her, it would be different than his typical one night stands, even though its probably not a good idea, he just can’t stay away. Shaw can’t resist Rule even realizing there’s a strong possibility their relationship will end in disaster but she is still determined to take the chance. She’s tired of living safe and doing what her parents expect when they’ve never paid no mind to her. Their relationship has rocky moments because it was all new territory for Rule. Regardless, it was sizzlin hot! This book has delicious sex scenes, major Alpha tendencies, wild crazy colored mohawks, extreme tattooed bad boys, family drama, and psycho path ex boyfriends , etc, etc... Knowing Shaw had feelings for Rule for so long made my heart break for her. I always want unrequited love to get noticed and returned, so it was very satisfying to see this come about. I loved the passion and intensity both Rule and Shaw showed to each other, and I liked seeing Rule figure out what he was missing all these years. There were lots of smoking hot scenes and sizzling chemistry. Plus, there was suspense thanks to Shaw's crazy ex boyfriend! I’m eagerly waiting for Audible to release Jet and Ayden’s story next.
Mine begins just where Real left off. Remy has his Brooke back and they are off for the next season in The Underground. But they still have the challenges of his mood changes and Scorpion isn’t history yet. They both are finally happy together and things are finally solid between them. But then a life-changing event occurs and force them to be apart for some time. And with the distance comes insecurity. Brooke starts to feel insecure about all the groupies, about the fighting and everything that comes with it. The boxer who has fallen utterly and totally in love with Brooke Dumas. Possessive as ever, Rem is fighting and training for the biggest fight of his life. With Brooke by his side he’s just invincible. But life gets in the way and as a unit they need to fight much darker parts of him that threaten to take him under. This book was good. There was a few times when Brooke irritated the hell out of me, but Remy, oh-sweet-and-sexy-Remy, he made it all worth it. It was a bit predictable, but the steam was all there and it was also sweet & romantic with no end. If you liked the first one, YOU HAVE to buy this one.
A delightful, crazy romp with another food obsessed, bossy, obnoxious Bradford. This book had me laughing out loud at all Trevor’s crazy antics. Zoe needs someone to be her champion and Trevor is just the man for the job. She’s his tenant and neither have ever spoken, but he still manages to annoy the HELL out of her. The first time they have a face to face encounter he insults her, over food of course, and regrets what he says the minute it comes out of his mouth.So, he tries to right the wrong by helping her out and along the way, he falls in love with her. Soon an unexpected friendship blossoms. Then one night everything changes when Zoe goes to a bar to hunt for a man. A girl has needs too! She has been on a dry spell and is in need for sex. Trevor ends up at the same bar when he spots a drunken Zoe and makes her an offer she can't refuse. Friendship becomes lust and lust turns in to love. I enjoyed this book, but I preferred the first one. Trevor's disparaging thoughts, her low self-esteem and the friends with benefits storyline lessened my enjoyment a bit. Overall, this was another fun, hilarious and delicious "light" listen from Mathewson! I like this author ability to keep your attention with the characters clever sarcasm and hysterical banter She is good at making you laugh, gives some some good anticipation anxiety, makes you tingling with the heat she puts in her sex scenes, and I like that her epilogues gives glimpses years out about how wonderful life is with the characters.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
This story switches back n forth between the past (dead) owners of the house and the new Yankee owner. I was hooked from the beginning with the back story, it is so interesting how the snooty elite got away with murder, and the lies they told were never questioned, simply because of who they were. Enter the Bostonian, who has given up his lucrative law practice to buy a decrepit plantation and begins to restore it to its former glory. The evil presents its immediately, however our Yankee isn't too easily scared off, besides he has the lovely Angelina Simone to keep him centered.
This story is classic Nora, and kept me interested. Will it win a Pulitzer? NAW!! But for pure entertainment it was great.
It was worth a credit for me.
Now for the Narrators, they were fantastic. I enjoyed their performance and will listen to them again. Well done.
