    Sawyer Hudson, the only doctor in Buckhorn County, took it upon himself to rescue the beautiful but enigmatic woman who came literally crashing into his life. Though he knew he should keep things platonic and professional, around her his body had other ideas. And his heart was no more cooperative.

    Story

    I grabbed Buckhorn Beginnings on audio a few months back when it was on sale at audible.com and was saving it for a rainy day. So when I was starting to get a little burn out on all the UF books I've been reading and listening to I knew it was time to dust this one off.

    It was just want I needed. Not one but two sweet and sexy contemporary stories in one audio. Buckhorn Beginnings is my first Lori Foster experience and before I was halfway through it I ran over to audible and grabbed the next audio, Forever Buckhorn. I knew I had to hear the other sexy brothers' stories.

    Foster knows how to write a sweet, emotional and sexy story. And the fact that the Hudson family has 4 sexy brothers is a real treat.


    Sawyer-

    Sawyer's story was a very sweet story about a normal town doctor living with his brothers and raising a son. His world gets turned up side down when a pretty little blonde wrecks her car on his property and he takes her in to nurse her back to good health. It was lust at first site for Sawyer but while he takes care of Honey, he starts having feelings for the stranger.

    Sawyer's story is also as a touch of suspenxe to it as well. Honey is running from something or someone. Sawyer will stop at nothing to found out more about the beautiful blonde that has stole his heart.


    Morgan-

    In the second story about Morgan we get to see this hard as nail town sheriff fall in love. And it's a site to see. The bigger and tougher they are, the hard they fall and Morgan is no exception.

    I knew when we find out in Sawyer's story that Honey had a sister that she would hook up with one of the other Hudson brothers but I was not expecting it to be Morgan.

    Just like her sister, Misty has a secret when she comes to the Hudson ranch. While Misty is visiting Honey, she finds herself the center of attention among the other Hudson brothers. Everyone but Misty and Morgan know that she is off limits though. See everyone can see the two have a connection even if they don't want to see it.

    After fighting their attraction to each other, Misty and Morgan start working together in Morgan's sheriff office. Morgan might look and act like a bear, but Misty starts seeing the caring and loving man he is on the inside. One thing leads to another and the two find themselves in love.

    I can't wait to start the next audio, Forever Buckhorn to find out more about the other brothers, Gabe and Jordan.


    Narration Note:
    Isabelle Gordon is the first female narrator I've listened to where I like her male voices better than her female voices. She does a good job with both but her males are one of the best I've heard a female do. I also like that her "reading" voice is different than her voice for the dialogue. Some narrators do not change their voice enough so you can tell when they are reading the non dialogue parts of a book but Gordon does a really good job with this. I never once thought, is someone saying that or is it their thoughts.

    Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.

    Story

    I don’t usually jump on books that are so hyped up as Wallbanger has been. I like to let them settle for a while before I give them a try. I kept seeing other bloggers say it was a must read. That it was funny. I was in the mood for a funny contemporary so I decided to listen to Wallbanger.

    I thought that Wallbanger was going to be a hard-core erotic romance but it’s not and I was glad it wasn’t. I loved that Caroline and Simon didn’t sleep together until about ¾ of the way into the book. They don’t have an instant-a-love which is really refreshing. Sure there’s an instant-a-lust but they don’t give into it. They become friends then lovers.

    Caroline and her group of friends reminded me of a younger Carrie Bradshaw and her gal pals from Sex and the City. They have dating wows that is just plain funny. They have each other’s backs and are quick to “bitch” each other out. They find themselves in a unique place where they are all single at the same time. But poor Caroline has taken herself off the market after losing her “O”. That’s right she’s missing her “O” as in orgasm. And how did she loose it? The last time she had sex was with a guy she calls the machine gun fucker. You know the kind that bang-bang bangs you. Which reminded me of the episode where Carrie (Sex and the City) has sex with the “jack rabbit”. LOL

    The way Caroline goes on and on about her missing “O” liked it’s a person and it’s her best friend was so funny. Yeah it sounds cheesy but it really worked the way Alice Clayton wrote it.

    So what’s the worst thing ever for a gal that’s lost her “O”? A neighbor that is hanging out “Os” to what seems like a different woman every night right next door. How does Caroline know what her neighbor is up to every night? The apartment walls are really thin. And that’s also how she knows her neighbor’s name is Simon without even meeting him.

    Apparently Simon is a god in bed because Caroline hears the women’s screams, giggles and meows. That’s right MEOWS.

    “Oh, God.”

    Unbelievable…

    I woke up faster this time, because I knew what I was hearing. I sat up in bed, glaring behind me. The bed was still pulled safely away from the wall, so I felt no movement, but there was sure as hell something moving over there.

    Then I heard… hissing?

    I looked down at Clive, whose tail was at full puff. He arched his back and paced back and forth at the foot of the bed.

    “Hey, mister. It’s cool. We just got a noisy neighbor, that’s all,” I soothed, stretching my hand out to him. That’s when I heard it.

    “Meow.”

    I cocked my head sideways, listening more intently. I studied Clive, who looked back as if to say, “T’weren’t me.”

    “Meow! Oh, God. Me-yow!”

    The girl next door was meowing. What in the world was my neighbor packing to make that happen?

    “Oooh yes, just like that, Simon….Mmmm…meow, meow, meow!”

    Clive is Caroline’s male cat and the meowing drives him nuts which just adds to the funniness of the situation.

    Heather Smith’s narration of Wallbanger adds to the craziness. She does a really good job with Caroline and her inner monologue. Like so many female narrators she wasn’t masculine enough with the guys but still did a good enough job with them. Her narration of “giggles” was really funny. And she did a great job with the few characters that had foreign accents. Smith is definitely suited for Clayton’s writing.

    Between Alice Clayton’s writing and Heather Smith’s performance you get a great romance with funny dialogue, engaging characters and one saucy kitty. I already have the next book; Rusty Nailed loaded on my phone to listen to. I can’t wait to see what Simon and Caroline are up to next.

    After dying and being revived with the experimental drug Returne, Bryn Davis is theoretically free to live her unlife - with regular doses to keep her going. But Bryn knows that the government has every intention of keeping a tight lid on Pharmadene's life-altering discovery, no matter the cost. Thankfully, some things have changed for the better; her job at the rechristened Davis Funeral Home is keeping her busy and her fragile romance with Patrick McCallister is blossoming.

    Story

    Issue(s) I Had:
    I don’t understand why the revived people are being called Returne addicts. Addicts are people who can (if they choose to) stop doing something like drinking or drugs. But the revived NEED the Returne drug or they die. It’s like calling me an oxygen addict. I don’t get it.

    The Story:
    Bryn is now working for the government in order to get her doses of Returne to stay “fresh”. But little does the government know, she has her own private supplier. The crazy ex-FBI mad scientist, Manny is trying to tweak Returne so that Bryn and the revived do not have to get their supply from the government.

    While Bryn works her first assignment for the government she is trying to find her sister, Annie that was also killed and revived in Working Stiff. But Bryn is not alone; Joe is still working for Bryn at the funeral home and doubling as her back/bodyguard. And Bryn’s would be lover Patrick is sticking around to help.

    Speaking of Patrick, a part of his past comes back to bite everyone on the ass this time around.

    While the gang tries to work out the mystery and keep Bryn “alive” they find themselves getting into a much big and darker conspiracy than they ever thought was possible.

    Narration:
    The narration is not the best but still very enjoyable. Whelan does a great job with Bryn and her male voices are believable.

    Final Thought:
    A whole can of worms was opened at the end of Two Weeks’ Notice so it leaves me thinking that the Terminated, the 3rd book in the trilogy will have to be fast paced to get us to a conclusion.

    Georgina Kincaid has formidable powers. Immortality, seduction, shape-shifting into any human form she desires, walking in heels that would cripple mere mortals - all child's play to a succubus like her. Helping to plan her ex-boyfriend's wedding is a different story. Georgina isn't sure which is worse - that Seth is marrying another woman, or that Georgina has to run all over Seattle trying on bridesmaid dresses.

    Story

    I’ve got to say that Succubus Shadows is my least favorite in the Georgina Kincaid series. WHY? Because there is still too much back and forth with Georgina and Seth. Seth needs to man up and be with Georgina and cut Maddie loose or stay away from Georgina. I’ve never really been a 100% on board with Seth as the main love interest and now that Roman is back I find myself rooting for him.

    Don’t get me wrong I still enjoyed Succubus Shadows and can’t wait to listen to the last book in the series, Succubus Revealed but a part of me just want’s the series over so that Georgina can get a HEA (and she better!).

    Much like other books in the series we get some flashbacks on Georgina’s life as a human and her early days as a succubus. I liked seeing them but at the same time I thought she’s made the same mistakes over and over when it comes to men. You think she would have learned by now. But that’s also some of Georgina’s charm. She has not let the fact that she serves on Hell’s side jade her. She still tries to hang on to her humanity and is a romantic softy at heart. It’s not easy being a succubus forced to sleep with countless men to stay alive when all she wants is a love of her own.

    Richelle Mead has done an excellent job of slowly weaving a complex overall arc to series that looks like it will have a big pay off for Georgina. She’s given us bread crumbs and now has finally given us a big chunk of that loaf of bread at the end of Succubus Shadows, one that I didn’t see coming.

    Succubus Shadows was very dark in the emotional department and I’m hoping for a ray of sunshine in Georgina’s ending but I have a feeling that she will have to go through a little more heartache to get there.

    Story

    Richelle Mead did a great job of sprinkling clues throughout the Georgina Kincaid series and with Succubus Revealed we get the big pay off.

    Through the whole series we’ve seen Georgina’s long life through flashbacks. While these have been fun and entertaining they set up the grand finale to Georgina’s HEA. She’s been a succubus doomed to repeat the same mistakes over and over. At some point she has to learn from her mistakes and make different choices.

    In Succubus Revealed we see Georgina out of the bookstore and working as an elf at the mall with drunken Santa included. She is missing her friends at the bookstore and not sure what she’s going to do as far as a new job. That is until she gets an unexpected transfer order from hell. She’s Las Vegas bound, a succubus’s wet dream. But how will she and Seth keep their relationship going? Seth can’t leave Seattle just yet and Georgina can’t say no to the move.

    Georgina goes the Vegas to meet with her new boss and get the lay of the land. Everything in Vegas could not be more perfect from her best incubus friend to getting a dancing job as a showgirl. It’s all too perfect (if it’s too good to be true…). Which throws up all kinds of red flags but in true Georgina fashion she doesn’t see them. But thanks to her roommate, Roman, he’s on the case.

    I think that Mead gave Georgina a great HEA and did a wonderful job of closing up the loose ends of the series in the finale. If you’re looking for a PNR/UF series with snark, mystery, romance and some smoking sex then you need to give Georgina Kincaid a try.

    Elisabeth Rodgers did an outstanding job on the narration throughout the whole series. I will check out more of her narration work.

    The Master of Natchez, Mississippi has a nasty problem on his hands. Rogue vampires - those who follow the Naturaleza and believe that humans should be nothing more than prey to be hunted - are terrorizing his city. Luckily, he knows the perfect skinwalker to call in to take back the streets. But what he doesn’t tell Jane is that there’s something different about these vamps. Something that makes them harder to kill - even for a pro like Jane.

    Story

    Six books into the Jane Yellowrock series by Faith Hunter and the writing is still just as fantastic. The heroine, Jane/Beast are still kick-ass. Faith Hunter has built an outstanding world and characters that I enjoy visiting over and over. And with Khristine Hvam’s narration, the series is a winning combination.

    Jane and her new partners/family the Younger brothers cross state lines over to Mississippi to clean out some vampires. With Jane being depressed for the last couple of months the brothers can’t wait to get the old Jane back and a job is just what they all need.

    Why has Jane been depressed? The events that happened in Death’s Rival left her and beast with some personal challenges and heartbreak over loosing a dear friend and finding one of themselves bound to the MoC of Louisiana. Not to mention the bastard that betrayed her. If all that wasn’t enough she pushed her boyfriend, Ricky Bo away. Jane is all messed up emotionally and Beast is not happy with her.

    Let’s address the love triangle that has been forming. There’s George aka Bruiser, the primo of Leo the head blood sucker. I use to be team Bruiser until Death’s Rival. He and Jane had more passion between them and I felt like RIcky Bo was the safer choice that Jane took because she couldn’t be with Bruiser because of his loyatly to Leo. But the more I see of Ricky Bo I’m now switched teams and I can’t see me EVER being team Bruiser again.

    Blood Trade was not short of the action and blood that I’ve come to expect from the Jane Yellowrock series. Jane has a job to do and she gets it done but what’s different is that it’s not just her and Beast anymore. She as a team in the Younger brothers. They have really become Jane’s family. Which she really needs after loosing the family she had with her BFF Molly.

    I was afraid with the additional of the older Younger brother, Eli that there was going to be another man wanting in Jane’s bed. But Faith Hunter made it clear in Blood Trade that Jane see’s Eli as a brother not a mate and Beast feels the same way. So yay. And with the way that Jane answers someone when they ask if she loves Bruiser I think it’s pretty clear that Jane may no longer be team Bruiser either. Doesn’t mean he can’t still make her heart skip a beat and if Beast had her way she would make Bruiser one of Jane’s mates.

    I really enjoyed Blood Trade and how she got to see a softer side to Jane. I have hopes that Jane will work her way back to Molly and her family in the near future. The most important thing for Jane to have is friends and family to help her keep her humanity and not turn into just a killer that she fears will happen to her.

    If you’re looking for a heroine with a unique bond with her beast within you really should check out Faith Hunter’s Jane Yellowrock series.

She certainly didn't expect to be a contender for the Fallen Queen's throne, a target for the Druid King's mafia, or a suspect in the murder of Junior, the Devil's oldest hell spawn. In a last-ditch effort to save her life and get out of her deal with the Devil she sets out to solve Junior's murder only to be taken prisoner by the four most dangerous immortal hell spawn alive.

    Story

    First Thought

    Lauren Fortgang is the narrator? Heck yeah sign me up!

    What I liked

    Dark Hope started out as a kind of light UF story that turned into a complex story that had me wondering where the roller coaster was going to stop. I liked the fact that I couldn't easily figure the plot out by chapter 5 like other books I've read. Dark Hope is an audio you need to listen carefully to because you can find yourself lost if you check out from time to time. A lot of plot twists happen.
    What Didn’t Quite Work For Me

    I actually took a break with only 2 hours left in the audio because I was as lost and pissed as Claire and just wanted to know what the heck was going on. After I took a break and came back to Dark Hope I was glad I did.
    Will I continue the series?

    Yes. I enjoyed the plot and Claire enough to give a second book a go. Especially if it's on audio and narrated by Lauren Fortgang. Plus I NEED to know who was taking Claire home at the end. H.D. Smith you left me hanging. LOL

    Why I listened

    Lauren. Freaking. Fortgang. Seriously if I see her name as the narrator I'm going to give it a try. I could listen to Lauren read the phone book. Lauren nailed Dark Hope's 1st person POV through Claire.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    A Reason to Stay felt like the last half of a longer novella. I want the beginning, the work up to Ellie moving. I would like to have learned more about Ellie and Jake.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love romances where best friends are secretly in love with each other. It's one of my favorite plot lines in contemporary romances.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I didn't fall in love with Meghan Kelly's narration of the book. It was bad but it wasn't my favorite either. The biggest issue I had was her voice for Jake. I don't know how to put it... he didn't sound guy enough for my taste.


    Do you think A Reason to Stay needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I don't really see how there could a be follow up book, since Jake and Ellie got their happily ever after and there was no other characters in the story to get their own book.


    Any additional comments?

    Great characters and I liked idea of the story. Just wish there was more than basically a two or three scene story. I wanted more.

    First Impression:

    Another fun and sexy read from Jessica Sims.

    What I liked:

    Everything.

    Marie is a great heroine. She’s strong and sassy. She’s a little naïve when it comes to supes even though she’s worked as Midnight Liaisons for a year. But she keeps to herself and the supes try to keep as much as they can from humans so her naïve about them is understandable.

    Joshua is just down right sexy. I picture him as Jason Stackhouse in True Blood but with more brains. LOL He’s known as a player, never having a long relationship with one woman. But Marie has him wanting more. And good for her, she makes him work for it.

    What I didn’t like:

    Nothing! As far as the writing, plot and characters I really enjoyed Must Love Fangs. My only complaint was the narration.

    The Narration:

    Leah Mallach continues to do an ok job with the narration. My only complaint this time around is her lack of a French accent for Marie when she was cussing in French. Marie’s mother was French Canadian and that’s where she learned to cuss in French. But I guess with Marie living in Texas she’s not going to have a French accent but still I would have liked to have a good fake French accent. Mallach didn’t change her accent at all for those French dirty words.

    Lasting Impression:

    Must Love Fangs has it all; humor, mystery, sexy times, sad times and fur and fangs. Jessica Sims is always a good for a light and fun read.

    Will I continue this series?

    Yes! I’ve requested book 4, Wanted: Wild Thing from the audio publisher already and can’t wait to listen to Ryder’s story.

After centuries, Viking vampire Leif Helgarson is ready to get his vengeance, and he’s asked his friend Atticus O’Sullivan, the last of the Druids, to help take down this Norse nightmare.One survival strategy has worked for Atticus for more than two thousand years: stay away from the guy with the lightning bolts. But things are heating up in Atticus’s home base of Tempe, Arizona....

    Story


    Hammered is the 3rd book in Kevin Hearne’s Iron Druid Chronicles. While we get some of the same humor that I love from Hearne, Hammered was just a bit slower than the last two books. Why? Most of the book reminded me of the LONG journey in Lord of the Rings. You have a group of guys traveling to find Thor, the Thunder God. Why do they want to find Thor? To kill him. Atticus promised Leif that he would help him. And after hearing all of the guys in the group stories (male bonding around the camp fire) about Thor. Atticus gets a clear picture about what a douche bag Thor is.

    Two of my favorite scenes in Hammered was of course the speech that Oberon gives about Triple Nonfat Double Bacon Five-Cheese Mocha and Atticus having a pint and fish-n-chips with Jesus.

    While Hammered is not my favorite in the series so far it’s still a must read/listen for fans of the series. Just know that it’s very heavy in mythology and geekery. (Seriously, Atticus does a lot of Star Trek talking to himself LOL)

    The Narration:

    Ever wonder what a giant squirrel would sound like? According to Luke Daniels it’s much like LotR’s Gollum. I imagine him hugging a nut saying my precious. Daniels truly kept me entertained with all his delightful voices for some of the quirkier characters.
