    When Gabe Hamilton saw Mia Crestwell walk into the ballroom for his hotel’s grand opening, he knew he was going to hell for what he had planned. After all, Mia is his best friend’s little sister. Except she’s not so little anymore. And Gabe has waited a long time to act on his desires. Gabe has starred in Mia’s fantasies more than once, ever since she was a teenager with a huge crush on her brother’s best friend. So what if Gabe’s 14 years older? Mia knows he’s way out of her league, but her attraction has only grown stronger with time. She’s an adult now, and there’s no reason not to act on her most secret desires.

    Story
    Would you ever listen to anything by Maya Banks again?

    Yes, I am a fan of her work. However, this story was not at all what I expected.


    What didn’t you like about Adam Paul’s performance?

    All of his character voices sounded the same.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Rush?

    The debasement scene in Paris. It was just awful. It was reminiscent of porn. O_o


    Any additional comments?

    I thought this book would be similar to FSOG. It was not. The characters were one dimensional and not very likable. The only character I liked a little was Mia and she was just a doormat. I felt like part of the story was unrealistically resolved. After this story, I am not sure if I will listen to the other 2 books in the series.

    When Bailey Trent returns home to her small Ozark mountain town after being away for nearly six years, she is prepared to face the ghosts of her past. It does not mean she's prepared to come face to face with the cruelest of those memories. Darren Cory's life is a shell of what it once was, and when he's forced to look at the cause of his agony over and over, hatred rises to further blacken his days. But hating Bailey also destroys him, forcing him to become someone he doesn't recognize or want to be.

    Story

    Let me start by saying I am a huge fan of the author and I've read alot of her work. However, the narrator totally ruined what is a great story. She had no emotion at all. The narrator sounded like she was reading a grocery list. she To top it off, she mispronounced more than a few words. it sounded like the recording was not edited as she repeated sentencies twice/ thrice in a row.

    This was such an awesome listen!! I enjoyed every moment of the dual narration. Why can't all audiobooks be like this? I especially liked the sound effects. It just brought so much more depth to the story. I will eagerly awaiting the next book in the series.

    Shade is everything Lily doesn't want in a man. He's rude, obnoxious, and definitely not a cowboy. The tattooed enforcer for The Last Riders is a mystery Lily doesn't want to solve. He's too much for her to handle, especially with the nightmares from her past constantly threatening her sanity. Lily is everything Shade wants in a woman. She's sweet, kind, and submissive. When she discovers the truth about The Last Riders, it threatens to tear apart every relationship within the club.

    Story

    This by far was the best book in the series. The characters had a lot of substance and character. I loved every minute of it. There was suspense and a little WTF thrown in for good measure. The only thing I did not like about the book was the narrator. She just didn't do it for me. She sounds like a timid mouse. There is no distinction between the male and female voices.

    Kate Hart and Dominic Knight's volatile love affair continues in the last book in the All or Nothing trilogy from C.C. Gibbs. Being tied down to just one woman was the last thing Dominic wanted. But from the moment he laid eyes on Kate, he couldn't deny his overwhelming desire for her or his need to possess her.

    This was the perfect ending to an awesome trilogy!! I may sound a little basic, but I just don't have the words to describe how much I loved this book. I listened to the audible version of this book. I enjoyed it so much more rather than reading it.

    The best part of the story was the banter between the couple.

    As a young kid growing up in a farm town, Ross Mathews might as well have wished for a pet unicorn or a calorie-free cookie tree to grow in his front yard. Either of those far-fetched fantasies would have been more likely to come true than his real dream: working in television in Hollywood, California. Seriously, that stuff just doesn't happen to people like Ross. But guess what. It totally did.

    I loved loved loved this autobiography. His sense of humor is just the best. I think reading the book does not do it any justice. To experience the full effect of this story in all it's glory, it has to be experienced via audiobook.

    Brilliant. Wealthy. Powerful. Dominic Knight is one of the hottest tech developers in the world - and the most demanding lover Kate Hart has ever known. Whether in the boardroom or the bedroom, he is always in charge. But there is one thing he cannot control: Kate's fiery heart... As a master in her field, talented Kate surpassed Dominic's wildest expectations. As a woman of uncommon intelligence and beauty, she unlocked something deep within him.

    Keeping others safe is what Caleb Montgomery does. He's never had a problem taking on an assignment, whether it was during his dangerous SEAL days or his most recent job of training war mercenaries. But being assigned to keep Brynna Vincent and her adorable daughters, Maddie and Josie, safe from an unknown threat has thrown Caleb off his axis. Hot for the tall brunette since she came back to town more than a year ago, being close to her day in and day out is cracking Caleb's resolve to keep his hands off her gorgeous body and his head in the mission.

    Marco Donati is rich, ruthless - and more often than not - indiscriminate. Interested only in satisfying his sexual needs casually and frequently, he has no intention of changing a thing about his life. Natalie Lambert is alone, broke, and new to the city when a chance encounter leaves her under the power and control of Marco Donati. As the story unfolds, tensions mount and trust is tested between two people who can't manage to stay away from each other.
