    When Brittany Ellis walks into chemistry class on the first day of senior year, she has no clue that her carefully created perfect life is about to unravel before her eyes. She's forced to be lab partners with Alex Fuentes, a gang member from the other side of town, and he is about to threaten everything she's worked so hard for her flawless reputation, her relationship with her boyfriend, and the secret that her home life is anything but perfect.

    Behind His Eyes – Consequences is a companion to the audiobook Consequences, by New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Aleatha Romig. It is not a standalone audiobook and should not be listened to as such. This companion was written to explore the thoughts and motivations of Anthony Rawlings, the man behind the consequences.

    Necessary for me because I am caught up in these characters and will listen to everything written. This is a snapshot of Book 1 from Tony's POV and I was hoping for more insight into Tony. This story is a mystery and I am looking forward to continuing on with the journey.

    Determined to live a dark life in the company of the assassin who freed her from bondage, Sarai sets out on her own to settle a score with an evil sadist. Unskilled and untrained in the art of killing, the events that unfold leave her hanging precariously on the edge of death when nothing goes as planned. Sarai's reckless choices send her on a path she knows she can never turn back from and so she presents Victor with an ultimatum: Help her become more like him and give her a fighting chance, or she'll do it alone no matter the consequences.

    This is book 2 of In the Company of Killers, it was better than the first and #1 was very good. These characters are assassins and along with murder comes romance and intrigue.
    The writing is wonderful, one of those stories that you can picture in your mind. The narration is good and will grow on you, I kind of like them now. #3 looks great and ready to download now!

    New to the Nightfury pack, dragon-shifter Mac cannot understand the bond between his brothers-in-arms and their human mates - until the moment he spies Tania and the energy bond between them blazes to life. Driven by a primal instinct, Mac will stop at nothing to find Tania, to keep her safe, to possess her. He has no time to waste: Ivar, leader of the rival Razorbacks, hunts her, hungry for a new high-energy pawn with which to destroy the human race. Caught between the warring factions, Tania finds herself immersed in a world she never knew existed - and bound by a love stronger than time.

    The stories are getting better, the narration not so much. I almost gave up on this series but bought #3 and #4 on sale and I enjoyed this listen more than the first 2. I am looking forward to #4, the story of Wick which I think is going to be good just knowing the little I do about him. This is the night fury series and is about dragons and of course they are all hot and sexy and find their true mates with a little action in between. This story has a bit of a cliff hanger that will want you to continue on.

    Eager to understand her secret desires, Gabrielle enters "The Sanctuary." Inside she's immediately torn between fear of the unknown and a craving to learn more, until the lights dim. From the first sound of Thomas' calm and controlled voice, she is mesmerized. With an underlying need in her emotional spirit that requires more control, she is easily seduced into a world of dominance and submission.

    It may not be realistic but it will blow your fantasies out of the water! If you like sexually explicit listens this will make the top of your list! The narration was ok and the story far from realistic but if you are in the mood for erotica I think you just might enjoy this.

    I did not learn one thing about the Ottoman Empire and it wasn't much of a romance either. The first 10 hours killed me and the last 8 minutes were fair! I am going to stick with authors I know when a sale pops up.

    His dark hair, bright eyes, and cocky grin look just the way I remembered. The last time I saw Bryan's Ferro's beautiful body, he was naked and shimmering with sweat. This time he's wearing a tux and a wicked smirk that makes my heart beat too fast. It's been so long since I've seen him, the moment feels supercharged. But, the words that fall out of his mouth aren't what I expect and shock me to the core.

    Half-vampire Cat Crawfield and her vampire husband, Bones, have fought for their lives, as well as for their relationship. But just when they’ve triumphed over the latest battle, Cat’s new and unexpected abilities threaten to upset a long-standing balance.

    With the mysterious disappearance of vampires, rumors abound that a species war is brewing. A zealot is inciting tensions between the vampires and ghouls, and if these two powerful groups clash, innocent mortals could become collateral damage.

I love Cat and Bones and I love the narrator too, she makes these characters and it would not be the same without her. Plus...Cat and Bones have a great sex life!!!!

    Imagine The Story of O starring a Berkeley Ph.D. in comparative literature, who moonlights as a bike messenger, with a penchant for irony, self-analysis and as well as anal pleasures. Set in both San Francisco and the more chateau-friendly, Napa Valley, Weatherfield's deliciously decadent novel takes you on a sexually explicit journey into a netherworld of slave auctions, training regimes, enticing "ponies", (people) preening for dressage competitions. Desire runs rampant in this story of uncompromising mastery.

    Story

    This story is the educating of a sex slave, not very romantic, but for Carrie who chose this life it was. I was enlightened and I really do wonder does this happen outside of books. The narration was fine, she had a very "husky" voice suited for sexual scenes and portrayed Carrie as intelligent, witty and well-spoken.
