    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    Story

    Over the last few years I have forgotten what made me fall in love with Nora Roberts books 15 years ago. This book reminds me of why I love her books. Abigail is a survivor and I really fell in love with her strength. Brooks was an amazing perfect match for Abigail. Strong enough to let Abigail be strong and not let it diminish him. This is one of her best books.

    Story

    I am a huge fan of KA. I went into this book with high expectations as the sneak peak I'd listed to at the end of "Own the wind" left me excited for Hop and Lanie's story.I read this book before I purchased the audible version and I can say this is one book where the audio version did not live up to my expectations. I think if Angela Starling had narrated this book it would have worked much better. Don't get me wrong Kate Russell worked really well in the Dream Man series but this pairing didn't work at all for me.

    With that said I didn't listen to the full audio book because I couldn't get past the narrator but having read the book previously I can say this book does not stand out like "Own the Wind" (which I absolutely loved) but in many ways it still worked. I have read reviews that say there wasn't as much excitement in this book but I've come to expect that by listening to the Dream Series. I don't think each book has to be full of drama and/or excitement to be right for the characters. This book flowed well for me and while I wanted to slap Lanie and Hop a time or two It worked for me.

    When sensei Ronin Black first encounters Amery Hardwick, the fire in her eyes ignites a sexual spark a thousand times better than the primal rush he used to get from mixed martial arts matches. She accepts his darker edges and admits to him that her desires aren’t as wholesome as he believed. And before long, Ronin is grappling with emotions he’s never felt before.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I felt like the first book flowed much better than the 2nd book. I kept waiting for something exciting to happen but nothing came.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I didn't connect with the characters in this book and I was really looking forward to seeing how their story worked out. The way the couple get back together didn't flow with the ending in book 1. What happened to the Amery I fell in love with?


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I really wish they had used the same narrators as in the first book. The female vocals left a lot to be desired for me and killed some of the book for me.


    Do you think Unwound needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No

    I listened to books 1-3 before I posted my review. This book was not my normal type of book but I was intrigued by the reviews on Amazon. I was immediately drawn into Gabe and Angelo's story and I enjoyed the journey from beginning to end. This book is definitely my favorite in the series. I didn't fall in love with book 2 or 3 but the chemistry in this story was captivating and I was rooting for the couple to find love. The thing that really made this story stand out for me was the emotion Gabe and Angelo gave to each other. They were willing to be venerable to each other and it was very refreshing.

    What disappointed you about A Million Dirty Secrets?

    Delaine drove me nuts, she was way to winey for my taste. I found myself forwarding through her parts.


    What didn’t you like about Rockwell Davis and Rubyyy Jones ’s performance?

    I did like both narrators, they were what made this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe it's this type of book has been done over and over and this wasn't anything unique for me or it was the wish washy characters but I couldn't get into this book or even finish the book.

    Straight-laced and well-mannered southerner Emmy Clarke is out of her depth in New York City's fashion world, but when she lands a job as an assistant at a modeling agency it seems like the perfect mix of business and pleasure. Working under the notoriously tyrannical Fiona Stone is a nightmare, but there's one distinct perk: ogling the ridiculously hot male models who parade through the office; particularly rising star Ben Shaw.

    Story

    This book was a complete miss for me. I was looking for a story that took me on a journey and characters that I could love or connect with. Emmy's character was lacking in personal boundaries and it really bothered me. If you don't like how Ben is a sex magnet then why would you have a threesome with him? If you don't like how he gets drunk and hangs out with people doing drugs why would you ignore the behavior? Emmy finally stiffens her spine when she finds out about Ben's past relationship and that provokes a reaction?? I don't buy into her at all.
    And Ben, if you cherish your lady and want her for only yourself don't bring a buddy into your bed. You don't get trashed when you are expecting Emmy to meet you somewhere. You don't lie to Emmy. I won't even start on the situation with Fiona because it was very implausible to me.

    On a positive note I did like the dual narrators and they did well.

    Wedding bells can't chime soon enough for Chloe Mills and Bennett Ryan. Chloe, exasperated and stressed by all the last-minute to-dos, is on the verge of saying "I do" to eloping. For his part, Bennett's so worried about being distracted by Chloe's body that he makes a no-sex-until-the-wedding-night rule that only seems to be making things worse by continually backfiring on him.

    Logan Rettino never imagined she'd fall so far. Dropped by her ex on national TV, she's gone from prima ballerina to ring card girl, reduced to revving up the crowds before MMA bouts. However distasteful she finds her new job, it pays well…and she needs the money if she's ever going to rebuild her life. Promised a huge bonus if she can convince a brooding, gifted welterweight to keep fighting, she'll do whatever it takes to earn his trust. Keane O'Shea is unbeatable in the octagon. A former marine, he fights with a ruthlessness no gym jockey can match.

    Story

    Perhaps I started this book with an idea of what caliber of book I was anticipating. I absolutely love Katy Evan's Remy and Sarah Castille Against the Ropes so I was expecting something similar. This book didn't excite me in any way. There was no witty dialog between the main characters, no relationship between the different fighters to bring you into this world and the chemistry between the characters was very off putting. I've listened to other books narrated by Rachel Fulginiti but I didn't find her a good fit for this book and perhaps that played into my blaahh feeling after listening to this book.
