    The Bermuda Triangle. Pirates. The Peanut. What could possibly go wrong? Dragos Cuelebre needs a vacation. So does Pia, his mate. When the First Family of the Wyr head to Bermuda for some much needed R&R, it's no ordinary undertaking - and no ordinary weekend in the sun. Between hunting for ancient treasure buried beneath the waves and keeping track of their son, Liam - a.k.a. Peanut, whose Wyr abilities are manifesting far ahead of schedule - it's a miracle that Pia and Dragos can get any time together. They're determined to make the most of each moment, no matter who tries to get in their way.

    WOW! I was blown away! I did not expect this. I love Maby narration, so I got this for a road trip. Boy, what great way to spend a credit. Totally worth it. Loved this story. Let me say this right now, THIS IS A LOVE STORY! The basic love story rules apply... i.e. girl meets guy, they get together, break up, get back together.

    Now with that said... the basic rules has nothing on this book. WOW... such a good story and sooo freakin real. Ryan is a movie star and Tarren is a regular bar owner that has never seen Ryan's movies. It starts there. U have to get this book. It is very very long, but very very good. Each character is sooooo well developed, you feel like you know them personally. I loved it. Even the side characters are well developed with thier own personalities. Great Great!

    Ryan and Tarren have issues ( I will not give it away) that try to tear them apart and it so freakin good, I almost wreaked my car listening to this book! I got soo into this book... I felt each characters pain... and let me tell you... they both had pain... SOOOO goood...

    Like I said, Maby is such a great narrator, u just get sucked in. Men sound like men and every female is comeplely different...u can totally tell them apart. Maby is right up there with the Sands sisters. I mean no one is good as Xe Sands but Maby is a very close second...and that is saying alot!!!

    This is a great buy/credit... Matter of fact... this is a must buy/credit!!!

  • "Best in the Dream Man Series!!!"

    Story

    I love Kane "Tack" Allen!!!! Hands down the best Alpha Male from the Dream Man Series... with Hawk bring up a really close second....This book is the best of the series, I think... It was like Mystery Man but a bit better, and that was really hard to do, b/c Mystery Man was really high up there on my badassness meter!

    From the open chapter, when Tyra and Tack fought about her job on the steps to the end on the picnic table in the RIDE parking lot.. this book was AWESOME... capitalized!

    The way Ashely wrote this book, you can just feel the emotions and testosterone of Kane "Tack" Allen so clearly...

    I loved all the drama.... the fights and action and the smexness of Tack Allen.. See I can't stop saying his name!!!

    ** Sidebar: Since I actually listen to Own the Wind before I listen to this, to get the back-story of Tabby and Shy in full technicolor was awesome... When Tabby talks about when Ty-Ty almost got hit with the bat...well that chapter was sweet.. when Ty-Ty gets stabbed, that part was EMOTIONAL! I love the fact that I now have history on Tabby, Shy, Elliot and Lanie, and Hopper!!! I so can't wait for Fire Inside...** Sidebar over.

    I really can't find one bad thing to say about this book... Nothing... It was perfection... hence the 5 stars... So wish I could rate more than 5 stars, which I don't do too often...

    Narration was great... same narrator for books 1-3 in the Dream Man series... Actually I kinda wish the narrators would have changed with each book, because all the female characters sound the same from book to book... SO a bit of adjustment is required if you are listening to these book back to back... HOWEVER, I rather have the same narrator instead of 4 bad narrators...so I am satisfied...

    This is a must-have in your audiobook collection... Buy it, Credit it or Sale it... anyway you can get it...GET IT!

    Happy Listening!!

NEW NAME's greatest hits:
  • Fever: The Breathless Trilogy, Book 2

    "It was hot but implausible"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I feel I need more categories to rate:

    Hot scenes: 5 because OMG the lady can write some good ones!

    Writing flow and style: 4 there were several lines used again and again by th main characters so that bugged me, but the story arc went well.

    Premise: 0...yes ZERO! I get the whole love at first site concept, and have applauded it in multiple books but in this book we are suppose to believe that first a catering company hired to cater an Engagement party for a millionaire who co owns the hotel the party is being held in...somehow had a homeless person as a waitress? Because high end catering companies frequently employ random people with no background checks for high end parties...and how does someone who is homeless for 4 years in NYC come even close to being not ill and not have any diseases? Oh, and is clean enough and well shaven to have a threesome and no comment is ever made? So the premise is totally absurd! Then this strong willed person who has what it takes to survive is a full on submissive???? Just thankful not to be homeless anymore so she looses all her fight and drive and is happy to be a full submissive from practically day one? Again, totally absurd that a person who has survived on the streets for 4 years would cede control nearly immediately, no trust issues?

    I get that the poor girl waitress finds rich guy bit has been done to death and Mrs. Banks didn't want to go there but it's just an absurd premise...oh did I mention that the female lead came into play seconds after Jace told his sister that he was likely never settling down? The absurdity of the premise kind of ruined the book for me, hope Ash's story is a bit more real.

  • Mystery Man

    "It wasn't a BAD book, but it wasn't for me"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Sooooo many people that I follow jumped on this book like it was the second coming...no pun intended....so I had to try it. I'll admit the hot was HOT, but I have MANY problems with this book, the biggest one is that the author seems to have attention deficit disorder and just fills in drama when needed.

    First we were lead to believe that this guy Hawk has mysterious paranormal powers and can appear and disappear at will....but nope turns out that he is just a trained commando and has been breaking into her house at least a few times a week for some nookie...and she hasn't caught his name in a year and a half??? So, not a paranormal book...and apparently the female lead has no common sense at ALL!

    Then she runs across the leader of a motorcycle gang, who wants her on site. Then there is a break in that isn't her mystery lover and the cop that investigates it wants her on site. Then her mystery man finally has to talk to her in the light of day and thinks humm, think I will talk to her AGAIN, and wants her on site...although he's been getting her for a year and a freaking half!

    So, you think this is paranormal book....nope......a biker book...nope....is it a commando secret forces book...nope...love triangle....not really....totally mismatched story lines that still entertained in bits and pieces, but really when you put them all together could NEVER happen in real life....ding, ding, ding, we have a winner!!!!!!!

    If it makes it to the $4.95 sale go for it, but I wouldn't waste a credit or buy the thing if it were me again, and I won't be looking out for any more in the series. On the plus side the narrator didn't annoy me....so I guess there is the silver lining!!!

    I have to admit I was soooo excited for this book to come out...and yet so dreading reading this book! I wanted to hear Travis's side of things, but didn't want to ruin my impression of book one!

    Happy to say a good medium was found and the book was kind of like a behind the scenes version of book 1, very cool! Hope other authors take a look at this, I would love to have some of my past favorites written from the other main characters perspective!

    Well done!

    Very nicely fleshed-out story with great characters and just enough romance. There were even a couple of twists I wasn't expecting. I was very pleasantly surprised and will look for more from this author.

    Do you believe in love at first sight? Paul Auster doesn't. Paul doesn't believe in much at all. He's thirty, slightly overweight, and his best features are his acerbic wit and the color commentary he provides as life passes him by. His closest friends are a two-legged dog named Wheels and a quasibipolar drag queen named Helena Handbasket. He works a dead-end job in a soul-sucking cubicle, and if his grandmother's homophobic parrot insults him one more time, Paul is going to wring its stupid neck.

    I've found it's easy to share my body but not my soul. I need no one, yet I crave her. Self-assured and independent, she doesn't need me, but she wants me, and undeniably I want her too. At war with myself as I battle the secrets of my past, I don't know if I can allow her to see the darkest parts of me, the parts I've left untouched - undone. As she chips away at the walls I've built for years, I fear those secrets will hold me hostage from love forever.

I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

Uber-hunky and altogether infuriating cop Wilson Rye suggests she concentrate on solving her other problems and leave the murder investigation to the experts. But does Jessie agree? Take a guess.
