    Adam, Ethan, and Ryan aren't looking for women. They're looking for a woman. One woman they know will share their lives and their beds. They're losing hope they'll find her, that is until Adam discovers Holly lying in the snow just yards from their cabin. Adam knows she's the one the minute he holds her in his arms, and as soon as his brothers see her, they know it too. The only problem is convincing Holly of that fact - and protecting her from the danger of her past.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    considering the content it really wasn't that bad. The story had some interest and the dynamics of the brothers was sort of interesting. If you're not offended by kinky fu@#$ery you may want to give it a try.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Colters' Woman?

    Of course near the end.....can't say too much without giving it away....


    Have you listened to any of Freddie Bates’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I don't think I have heard him before...he did a good job with all the male voices and the female as well. The brothers were distinguishable which is the most important part of the story. I could picture each one in my mind.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reactions.

    USA Today best-selling author and RITA Award winner Jennifer Ashley pens heart-pounding tales that keep listeners spellbound with torrid romance and finely crafted intrigue. Juliana St. John faces the ultimate mortification when she's stood up on her wedding day. But then fate places her face-to-face with her first love, Elliot McBride, and she finds herself falling for her half-mad former paramour.

    Story

    Elliott is the brother of Ansley who is married to a Mackenzie and I love the Mackenzie brothers. They are mentioned from time to time but this story is about Elliott overcoming his darkness with the help of his first love Julianna. The narrator is perfect for these stories, she does a wonderful job!

    It happens whenever wolf shifter Roni Axton is near Marcus Fuller: a crackle of sexual awareness that's intoxicating...and deeply annoying. Marcus is a pack enforcer who oozes power, but Roni is lethal in her own right - nothing like the flirty females who flock around him. Even still, his possessive gaze makes one thing clear. Marcus has singled her out for seduction, and he wants to make her sit up and beg.

    Two packs, lots of characters, hard to keep up. This listen was ok for me, the storyline was a bit different but the mating continues, this time it is Marcus and Rony. Jill Redfield does an amazing job trying to keep all the characters recognizable but it is becoming difficult to keep up with everyone. Sale buy only!

    Desperate to find her sister, Erin goes to the only man in Houston who can help her - Ivan Markovic. The intimidating, tattooed Russian operates one of the most elite mixed-martial arts training centers in the world but it's his shadowy past and reputed connections with Houston's underworld that interest her most. To find her sister, she'll need the help of her big, scary Russian protector - but asking for help from a man like Ivan carries a steep price, one that might just include her heart.

    There is nothing sexier than the Russian accent and the narrator just didn't have it. The story was ok but the narration just killed it for me, I think this would have been a promising series with a better narrator, I can't continue on with this series.

    "My name is Mike Ross and I'm a Ferryman - like in the Greek myth. I didn't ask for, or really want, the job, but I'm trying to make the best of it. Most ghosts are okay and just need a little help to get where they need to go. Unfortunately, there are lots of exceptions, like power-mad psychopaths, spirits still trying to fight battles long since lost, and the worst of the lot - the Skinwalkers. They live vicariously by possessing people and controlling them like puppet masters. Then they toss them aside when they've outlived their usefulness."

    I got interested in other listens and just could not finish. The narrator was good and the story not so bad, just could not keep my interest. This was not the first of the series so I missed a lot and I could not make sense of many of the characters and their relevance so I gave up. I may finish one day if I am desperate!

    For Lieutenant Eve Dallas of the NYPSD, the job is a useful reminder of what she has to be grateful for this season. Hosting Roarke's big Irish family for the holiday may be challenging, but it’s a joyful improvement on her own dark childhood. Other couples aren’t as lucky as Eve and Roarke. The Reinholds, for example, are lying on the floor of their Downing Street apartment, stabbed and bludgeoned almost beyond recognition. Those who knew them are stunned - and even more heartbroken by the overwhelming evidence that they were murdered by their own son.

    I love Eve and Rourke, you can listen to these stories in any order and they all make sense. Great plot and I love listening to Eve track down her killer! This story even has a few teary-eyed moments. Susan Ericksen is Eve Dallas and all the other characters are realistic and recognizable as well, she does a great job! The killer in this story is especially heinous and Ms. Ericksen really shows her talent! Lastly, I love how Rourke loves Eve...it's special!
