    Amazing! First let me say...if ur a m/m Romance fan and u don't know Mary Calmes...well shame on u!

    This is book 7 of the Matter of Time series...and it was awesome! Books 1-5 is on AUDIBLE so download and enjoy first. Also if u want some back history on Duncan then get Acrobat which is also on here..

    Now we all remember Aaron Sutter, Jory's ex...the billionaire hotel magnet...so Aaron and Duncan meet in book 6 (which is not on here) had a weekend fling and that's where this book begins

    Aaron was so not this alpha in the other books...because he was chasing Jory. In this, Aaron alphaness was subtle...but man when whipped out the money leverage...people started to bow down! Money really can buy anything!

    Duncan was like another version of Sam, after he realised he was in love with Jory. Two alphas coming together but willing to submit to each other! It was great...and the reversible collar was the sweetest thing ever!

    Narration was awesome!

    Total l y worth a buy credit or sale for any m/m Romance fan!

    Life has never been easy for Duncan Stiel. His childhood was the stuff of nightmares, and his day job as an undercover police officer forces him to hide his true self and occasionally lands him in the hospital. So when he finally meets the perfect man, it comes as no surprise that everything falls apart around him. What Duncan doesn't expect is that the hardest hurdle to get over before he can make a life with Aaron Sutter is the one inside himself.

    Most "DARK' romances, are not usually all that dark... Well not my kinda of dark. There needs to be a level of violence with a dark romance... If you fall in-love with the H/h who is supposed to be the bad guy, in like chapter 2, well that just defeats the purpose of having a villain right..

    Anyway, THIS WAS AWESOMENESS!!! A great DARK romance!!!

    Our H is a totally mysterious but likeable A-hole for the things he do to the h... I was totally wrapped in the story the entire book.

    It got a bit boring during the middle, but actually now that the book is over... the middle really makes sense...because where the h was being held... there was really nothing to do, but what she was doing...sooooooo...Yeah, no action required... (by golly! I think I just figured that out!)

    So after the hospital, the book goes from 0.... nah, more like 35mph to 60 in the blink of an eye. I was literally pressing my ear bobs into my eardrums to make sure I heard this and that... I didn't want to miss anything! The action toward the end was that good...but then... right before the ending, the h... OMG! I just wanted to b*slap her....

    Yes, by now you will totally love the H, even though you only know a pinky nail much about him,but STILL.... I felt like the h didn't deserve my perfectly badass villain... She totally broke the ultimate rule!!!

    Anyway... I loved the ending, serious little girl butterflies.... Awesome job Anna Zaires... Awesome job...

    The smex was just so smexy too... Love me some Alpha Man punishment!!!

    Narration was not the greatest...but a far far step up from the Liaison books by Zaires on Audible. I actually wish this narrator could go back and re-narrate the Liaison books, because that series is one of my faves, that was ruined by narration... Rae did a decent job with this... Love the H voice... so smexy!

    This is a totally Credit or Sale... I prefer not to buy books over 10 bucks unless its a must have... This was more like a very enjoyable have... a definite re-listen, but not necessarily a must have. Although, one could save a credit for a more enticing listen and just buy this because its not that expensive... still under 15 bucks... This book wasn't enticing like you are ready to beat someone if they disturb you...this was however, highly enjoyable... 2pts for Zaires!!

    I never thought this could happen to me. I never imagined one chance meeting on the eve of my eighteenth birthday could change my life so completely. Now I belong to him. To Julian. To a man who is as ruthless as he is beautiful - a man whose touch makes me burn. A man whose tenderness I find more devastating than his cruelty.

I think...as the thick of the story hasn't even been told...but from how this book started and the main (H) character's personality.... so far.. You know he is one crazy so and so....!

    "GREAT Romantic Suspense!!"

    Overall

    Story

    Natalie Jones was once a famous photographer ~ but now, paralyzed by blindness that was brought on by a degenerative eye disease, Natalie is pretty much at a stand still in her life. Denying to herself that her blindness might be forever and that she's going to have change her way of living, Natalie has pretty much isolated herself ~~ until she walks in to her own home on what appears to be a burglary in progress and is almost killed.

    State Special Agent Liam “Mac” McKenzie and his partner show up to interview Natalie when certain things about her case click with a case they've been working ~ a murder case. When Mac meets Natalie he's instantly and forcefully attracted to her ~ to the point he can't focus on anything else. Not realizing she's blind at first, he's suspicious why this woman is holding back and so abrasive w/ the cops.

    The sparks fly instantly ~ while Natalie can't 'see' Mac, she drawn to his voice, but she's scared and confused as to why the cops are back ~~ until she realizes there is more to the simple break in that what she'd first thought.

    This book was SO good ~ I listened to the audio version, and the narrator was a little slow in the narration, so I had to speed the narration up to 1.25, but then it was perfect! I so felt for Natalie, who had had her world turned upside down on her...then flipped on it's side. First, the blindness, then the break in and attempt on her life, then meeting this man she feels such a compelling pull towards. And she hadn't even begun to accept her blindness yet.

    Mac is a gruff, in your face kind of guy ~ and his protective instincts have flared to life with Natalie, and it's hard for him to separate her as woman from her as a case. I LOVE that ~ and while he's really gruff at times, it was clear to me that even if he couldn't admit it to himself, he'd already decided on some level that Natalie was HIS.
    When he discovers that there is actually a murderer trying to kill her, he just can't control his overbearing maleness, for lack of a better way to put it. He's a total Alpha in every sense of the word ~ And Natalie has teach him that he can't run her life.

    I enjoyed this book immensely, and cannot WAIT for book 2 ~~ if you're a fan of romantic suspense, Alpha heroes, and sexy romance, READ THIS!!

  • Delusion In Death: In Death, Book 35

    "Eve & Roarke NEVER get boring..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Where does Delusion In Death rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    At the top...not only is JD Robb aka Nora Roberts truly an artist with her words, but Susan Ericksen makes the characters of Robbs In Death series come ALIVE. I'd been reading this series since the day the first book, Naked In Death, came out...then two years ago I was talked into trying them in audio. I loved them so much I now own them ALL, again, in audio, and even when reading them now, I hear the characters in Ericksen's depiction of them.


    What other book might you compare Delusion In Death to and why?

    Hmmmm....that's tough. Nobody writes like Nora...but the closest series I'd have to compare it to would have to be Tess Gerritsen's Rizzoli & Isle's...as while there IS a romance in this series, the romance isn't the focus...the cases are. Eve Dallas IS. How she handles & solves her cases, how she immerses herself into the lives of the dead, and how she has gone from having nobody in her life to being surrounded by those that care about her...and those she cares about.


    What does Susan Ericksen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She brings the characters to life! Peabody & McNabb are two of my favorites. She gives Peabody that slightly naive, youngish, but far from dumb lovable voice...and McNabb that cute, funny lol voice...and Roarke! For a woman to be doing his sexy accent and pulling it off?? Kudos! And she does an excellent job.


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

    YES!! And I almost did, lol. Took me 2, but I listened to 8 hours of it in 1 day!


    Any additional comments?

    This one seemed shorter than the last, but no less satisfying...it tackles a threat that we all know is up close and personal every day, terrorism. There were some things I wanted to know from the last book, but as this is a series, and we don't get to see each and every character in every book, hopefully we'll get more in the next. We got to the meat and potatoes of this case quickly, and Eve & Roarke were doing the digging themselves for the most part. So it was pretty awesome!

  • Edge of Sight

    "More Great Suspense to LOVE!!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This is a spin off, very loosely, from her Bullet Catcher series. And let me tell you, I was heart broken when she said she was done w/ that series!!
    If you haven't read Roxanne St. Claire, that woman can WRITE, and she can write anything...from edge of your seat, Mission Impossible adventure to emotional scenes that will wrench your gut...and I was like OH NOES...but she doesn't dissapoint one bit picking up w/ this new series. I'd actually read the books, but when they first came out, but it was a true pleasure listening to Edgo of Sight...the narrator, Violet Gray, truly brought these amazing characters to life. To me, a good book rolls like like watching a movie in my head ~ listening to a GREAT book IS watching a movie in my head. I can't think of a better way to explain to you. I never thought I'd be a fan of audio books, but I'm here to tell if you have a great narrator, they ROCK!!

    Quick run down on the story ~ Samantha Fairchild witnesses a high profile murder while working, and is scared for her life. Because of past bad blood, she's afraid the police aren't really interested in looking out for her best interests...and she's not sure where to turn next. So she texts an friend who also happens to be an investigative journalist who she's lost touch with ~ who says come right over.

    Sam had lost touch w/ Vivi, the journalist, because of her brother, Zach...and Sam's feelings of betrayal and hurt when Zach just up & forgot about her. When Zach is the one who at Vivi's apartment when Sam gets there, w/ his missing eye, scarred face, and sparks flying between them, Sam runs...right into a killer.

    Is that teaser enough?? LOL, you HAVE to get these books. I'm doing book 2 today ~ book 3 isn't out on Audio yet, but guess what? It just won a National Readers Choice Award, so I'm sure it will be out soon!!

    Story
    If you could sum up If You Hear Her in three words, what would they be?

    Suspenseful
    Inspiring in a kick ass kind of way
    Sexy


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the heroine, Lena. She is blind, but she hasn't let that stand in her way ~ she's a college graduate, she's a chef, she lives alone w/ only her dog for a companion ~ she's a succesfull, confident, competent woman who doesn't let her lack of sight slow her down for a second.


    What about Cris Dukehart’s performance did you like?

    I really enjoyed her narration ~ first time I've listened to her, so was really impressed w/ her pacing, the life she brought to the characters ~ it was obvious she'd read the book before hand and knew how each sentence was to come across, whether it was Lena being pissed or spunky, or Ezra being sad or having flashbacks. She did a really good job of keeping the voices seperate, and the SAME tone/inflection for each character.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    If You Hear Her ~ it couldn't be MORE fitting!


    Any additional comments?

    OK ~~ couple of things. First, this book ends on a MAJOR cliff hanger. So you HAVE to buy the next book ~ which I will, but it's not available in audio yet, lol. Wish I'd known this going in, I'd probably have waited. 2nd...I liked the story, I liked the characters, but I did feel like it wandered some. And AGAIN I mention cliff hangerS ~ yup, there are really several.

    All in all, I enjoyed the book, couldn't stop listening because she TOTALLY hooked me into the plot ~ I'd recommend it to anyone who loves suspense. It had a great romance in it, too, but didn't really feel that was the center of the story. She's got me invested in the characters to degree that there is NO way I won't buy the next 2 books when become availalbe.

  • "Well done romantic mystery suspense."

    3 of 3 helpful votes

    I was engaged all the way through. Wonderful character creation. Wonderful dialogue. Various conflicts are well done.

    An example of fun dialogue: Tucker is this slow talking rich southern man who sleeps with a lot of women. Heroine is not interested. He makes a seductive comment to her. She says “You’re sick.” He replies “I do feel a fever comin’ on.”

    I loved the way clues and things came out gradually during the book - like the clue someone saw that led them to discover who tampered with a car. I loved Tucker’s relationship with a teenage boy -- heartwarming.

    AUDIOBOOK NARRATOR:
    I recently heard Judith Ivey doing a southern accent that was irritating. Tom Stechschulte (this audiobook narrator) did a wonderful southern accent. And he was soooo sexy as Tucker. Wow. And he did women well - no effeminate gay guy sounds. He did so many different voices well. He’s now one of my favorite narrators.

    It was just another after-work happy-hour bar downtown, where business professionals unwound with a few drinks, complained about the boss, maybe hooked up with someone for the night. Until something went terribly wrong. At first it was just a friction in the air. The noise intensified. The crowd seemed oppressive. Some sharp words were exchanged, some pushing and shoving. Then the madness descended. And after 12 minutes of chaos and violence, 80 people lay dead.

    I found an envelope in the mail. No return address. My name on the front, my address. Inside was a check, made out to me, in the amount of 10 thousand dollars. Enough to pay the bills and leave me some left over to live on until I found a job. Enough to let me focus on classes. There was no name on the check, just "VRI Inc.", and a post office box address for somewhere in the city. No hint of identity or reason for the check or anything. No mention of repayment, interest, nothing...except a single word, on the notes line: "You." Just those three letters.

And though she can appreciate her clients ' extraordinary homes, their expensive collections, and their adorable pets, Lila has never longed for possessions of her own. Everything she has, including her heart, is portable.
