  • "BEAUTIFUL WELL WRITTEN INTENSE LOVE..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Ok, firstly call me shallow but the cover picture helped me chose this listen - but the story was just so touching and so much more than I was expecting.

    An intense and deep love story between 2 childhood friends who were, and are still, attracted to each other but their lives are in such different places that you can't think it will work out for them and, as she has to chose between the 2 men she loves, hearts will get broken. They were all likeable characters but you can't help falling for the handsome bad boy tattooed rock star Jake whose heart felt emotional vows will leave you breathless.

    It's a 'just another chapter' obsessional listen which had me losing nearly a night's sleep but it was sooo worth it. It has sex, drugs and rock n roll - yes there were gripping sex scenes but they weren't too descriptive but they told of their passionate feelings for each other.

    Worth a credit? Yes absolutely and it's a definite re-listen book until book 2 Wethering The Storm is released sometime in 2013 and finally - is there a Jake Wethers fan club I can join please?

    It's been 12 years since Tru Bennett last saw Jake Wethers, her former best friend and boy she once loved. Jake Wethers, sexy, tattooed, and deliciously bad lead singer, and brains behind The Mighty Storm, one of biggest bands in the world, left Tru with a broken heart when he moved from England to America with his family when they were both 14. Sent to interview Jake for her music column by the magazine she works for, they are both unprepared for the sparks that fly the instant they reconnect.

    Story

    Firstly let me say, as the title of the book suggests 'Sharing' Hailey, this is an Adult Only book and, in my opinion, should have been put in the Erotica section.

    Now, that said, I thought this was a touching love story about Hailey who loves 2 handsome sexy men Mark and Tony but she has known them all her life as they are her brother's best friends and she doesn't want to complicate things or lose their friendship. Then the lucky girl finds out that they are both interested in her too but the only problem is her ex boyfriend has other plans. There was lots of hot sex scenes but they were touching and romantic and well placed in the story.

    Worth my credit? Absolutely Yes - but there's a big BUT - if you don't like the steamy sexy romance novels then this isn't for you.

  • Unwound: The Mastered Series, Book 2

    "HAD ME IN KNOTS! EXCELLENT SEQUEL!!!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This book should not be read as a stand alone, as it continues exactly where book 1 ends.

    Awe….. I really loved this sequel!! I was on pins and needles with the way the last book ended, but this book is a dedication of how deeply Ronin fell in love with Amery and his persistent need for her…OMG!! --I just love a Hero who is persistent in love!

    The beauty of this book is that all previous suspicions about the shady part of Ronin are either thrown out the door or explained. Amery accepts everything about Ronin, including his past as they work on their relationship as well as all of the challenges that come their way. Some of those challenges encompass Ronin healing from fighting injuries, sealing loose ends with his past, expanding his business with the Brazilian MMA fighters, rediscovering his family connection and most of all re-establishing his all-consuming relationship with Amery after their very bad break-up. Challenges that Amery has to deal with include her judgmental parents and Ronin's nasty ex-girlfriend.

    Believe me there is plenty of movement in this story with the leads whose problems feel real and who are surrounded by supportive, interesting and fun friends (Chaz, Molly, Knox, Deacon, Shiori, etc.) Both Amery and Ronin are very stubborn and strong-willed people so you can imagine the things they have to work through. The parts where Ronin practices the Japanese style of bondage (Kinbaku and Sheebari) with Amery was actually very intimate, intense and quite beautiful. You could feel their connection and the intensity of their moments together. Who knew the use of ropes could be so sexy??? This is definitely one very steamy, erotic novel but with leads who are interesting and who you grow to care about.

    Overall, I found this sequel to be very good. There is a resolution to each of the issues that arise which makes me sad because I don't know if that means that Amery and Ronin's story is over???? I hope not. I would love to have one more book about their love affair. (Although I have a feeling there is going to be a book with Knox and Shiori…they fight too much which probably means they're crazy for each other…LOL)

    Narrator: OMG!! What happened to Rachel Vivette????? For half of the book I was trying to get over her loss. It felt as though I was reading about different characters…I missed listening to Amery's voice through Rachel V.---ugh!! So sad!!! Luke Daniels did a good job for the men, and especially for Ronin, but his voice for the women sounded like transvestites. I would have appreciated a dual narration from both Rachel V. and Luke D. rather than booting Rachel out on this audiobook.

  • Cowboy Heat - Sweeter Version: Hell Yeah! Sweeter Version

    "SWEET, SUPER HOT COWBOY ROMANCE!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Wow, this is one power-punched audiobook! Let's start with the dreamy narrator----OMG! Where the heck did he come from???? What a gorgeous, masculine voice of perfection with a nice, smooth Texan accent! I'm serious, Reid Kerr's voice is just delicious and natural. He does great things for this book---An already sumptuous, sweet, sexy, erotic read enhanced by Mr. Kerr.

    This book was a great treat. No unnecessary drama, only a hot band of cowboy brothers who get introduced though out this book, and an incredibly hot chemical romance between Aaron and Libby. Libby, as a heroine, was sweetness personified and the reader is beckoned to root for her HEA every step of the way. You come to appreciate her love of life, as she was determined to be happy and not get burdened with small issues. It was interesting to read about a cancer patient on remission. I think that especially gave LIbby a wonderful, very grown-up character for her age. Aaron, the hero, and eldest of the brothers was a nice piece of Alpha-Male, cowboy fantasy..LOL. I appreciated how became more and more tangled in his love affair with LIbby. His growing nicknames were so sweet and endearing. Both Aaron and Libby enjoy a heated, but sweet romance that lights up as quick as wildfire with a widespread impact. But, you won't find a better pair of leads who deserve their HEA as this pair.

    I enjoyed the writing as it was interlaced with fun sayings and cute metaphors. This read/listen is pretty smooth sailing. There are struggles and barriers, but they're very minimal. The focus is on the developing romance between Libby and Aaron along with the character development of the brothers.

  • Fighting for Flight: Fighting, Book 1

    "WOW! THIS AUDIOBOOK WAS A PERFECT KNOCKOUT!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    WOW!! This audiobook really captured my attention and heart because it brimmed with almost everything on my romance checklist. This is one scintillating, emotional and very touching romance between badass, UFL fighter Jonah Slade, and the beautiful Raven Morretti who is sweetness personified. (Might I add that both leads have incredible tattoos---which is another plus!)

    This book had so many elements that made this a nonstop listen from start to finish. First, you have this great group of friends who are MMA fighters and simply hilarious and they comprise Jonah's inner circle. I can't wait to read/listen to each of their stories, especially Blake's--That man-whore with the crazy sense of humor…LOL.His story is next! Woot-woot! Jonah is a well-respected fighter and buddy among the group. Everyone wants to party and crash at his house. His friends also know Jonah's pattern with women--he never gets emotionally involved or sleeps with the same girl twice. (I mean we're talking about Vegas lifestyle here….)

    THen you have this incredible woman who enters Jonah's life and it all changes from there….Let me say that this heroine, Raven is something else. I LOVED her! She is a survivor of a ruthless father (more like biological contributor) and a cold mother who neglected her. Her sperm donor, Dominic is a cold hearted bastard who is more like a monster than a human being, and he's her mother's pimp. So, imagine how beautiful it was to read about a sweet girl who beams with kindness. A woman who is so special, sweet and innocent despite her unsavory family background. Also, the fact that Raven is a dark-haired beauty with aquamarine/green eyes AND a car mechanic added an interesting twist which was refreshing, and unexpected.

    So, you get Jonah and Raven together and you have this amazing couple…..Their romance was built up nicely and moved from sweet to sensual to completely unbridled hot-passion. Let me say, I love it when a man loves a woman like Jonah's loved Raven. He became her Hero, her protector, her lover, her best friend….I mean the man was completely smitten by Raven. The love making scenes were meaningful, and fiery and the challenges they face, as a couple were explosive. There is little angst in the romance. Mainly, the problems are external and initiated by Raven's monster of a father.

    The narrators were amazing. Ryan West was a dream…I loved his voice as he really brought Jonah to life. Erin Mallon was simply brilliant as she performed a sweet, vulnerable, sultry voice for Raven that did her justice. The emotional inflections in her voice were just perfect for each circumstance.

    In speaking of justice, the villains get what they deserved (I bit off all of my nails in the last 15% of the book due to the suspense and looming danger), YET, the epilogue was so moving and just perfect…..

    JB Salisbury---You did an awesome job with this debut novel, and start to what is sure to be a promising series!

  • Rule: A Marked Men Novel

    "AN INCREDIBLE & SENSATIONAL KIND OF LOVE"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    "Rule" had been on my radar for a while, but I hadn't taken the plunge because I was avoiding a cliché story. However, describing the love relationship between Rule and Shaw as simply "bad boy falls head over heals for good girl" doesn't even come close to the dimension in love, depth, and emotional healing that this book explores in both the leads and the supporting characters.

    This book has layers of awesome just waiting to be experienced and unraveled by a listener. First, this is one awesome audiobook! The dual narration by Sophie Eastlake and Michael Rahhal was exceptional as they brought the pages of this book to life in both their performances. A talented team of narrators was just what was needed to fully perform the characters in the book who are colorful, and emotionally evocative in their journeys in life.

    Shaw and Rule are certainly an unexpected couple. Yet, what might superficially come across as two individuals too different to mesh well together, by the end of the book, this couple showcases a love forged deeply with complementary traits that fit like matching puzzle pieces. Shaw is a beautiful, sweet, serious college student with luminescent green eyes and lovely blonde hair. Rule is raw, head-strong, moody, gorgeous with his arctic blue eyes, and rocking body decorated with colorful, intricate tattoos and piercings. Yet, Rule never took Shaw seriously because even though he noticed her, he put on the metaphorical shelf of "untouchables, too beautiful, too good, and breakable." Shaw was his twin brother, Remy's best friend as kids, and assumed lover later as adults. But, watch out because if Rule and Shaw kept their distance, subconsciously they had to feel the latent hum of sexual tension and attraction between the two. The connection between Rule and Shaw is like dynamite, once it's lit the explosion of intense love is inevitable. Their journey is not easy because both have to face their own demons, not to mention Shaw's lunatic ex-boyfriend & terrible family, but their HEA is a satisfying, beautiful one.

    I was captivated by the family relationships and theme of loss in this book. Rule's parents and older brother, Rome, are currently mourning the death of his twin brother Remy (Shaw's inseparable friend). The pain of loss emanates in Rule, Shaw, his parents and Rome. The way they deal with both the loss, and later shock of Remy's secret brought to light is incredible. The psychological layers of Rule's family is absolutely complex and projects such a feeling of entering the lives of a real family that, as a reader, you can't help but care and root for this family as they overcome the cycle of destruction and finally step toward healing.

    This book not only delivers on the love story, interesting themes, but Crownover delivers with a crew of supporting characters that you can't wait to hear about their own personal stories in the following books. Jett and Aiden's story is next and I can't wait!!!

    OVERALL, GREAT AUDIOBOOK!!!

  • "Braden Carmichael…Come On Down…"

    7 of 7 helpful votes

    Oh…My…

    “Dublin Street” is a “can’t put down”, “must listen to again” novel by Samantha Young, and Braden Carmichael is perhaps the best leading man…ever!

    This story is rich in emotion with great characters that you will love.
    There is a strong sexual content found in these pages, but responsibly written within the context of the storyline.

    Mark your calendars for May 7, 2013 when the Second installment of the Dublin series, “Down London Road” will be released on ebooks! I was so impressed with “Dublin Street” that I made a visit to Samantha Young’s website. There, I found out that Publisher’s Weekly announced that Samantha signed a book deal for the third book in the series as well.

    I cannot wait…

    Credit Worthy??? You’d better believe it!
