    Nurse and avid backpacker Aimee Donovan is offered the opportunity of a lifetime. She encounters a patient who tells her he can send her two hundred years into the past to spend three months in the rugged Yellowstone wilderness at the dawn of the mountain man era. The only requirement: she cannot tell anyone that she's from the future.

    Story

    I tend to have a love hate relationship with time-travel books. This one falling it the love category. Really well crafted story with great twists and turns.

    I loved the way it started, it picks up with Aimee in 1810, as she wanders you get the whole story of how she came to be here rather than 2010. Thank goodness she actually has some survival training, too bad she did not prepare better. I loved her spirit and energy. She does a great job of rolling with the punches.

    Daniel takes a while to warm up to, he has issues and acts tough to protect his heart. He has the whole Alpha wilderness male down perfectly. Once you get to know him better he will win you over. But it really too me some time to get to like him enough to fall in love.

    This is in a mixed narrative style, you get the POV's of the two leads, most of the time it is Aimee. There are also a few scenes from other character's POV, it helps give a fuller story and greater understanding of motivations. This style really goes a long way in making Daniel like-able, cause he comes off jerky from Aimee's side of things.

    The romance grows over time and develops naturally. I enjoyed the dynamic between Aimee and Daniel once they sort out their issues. The story gets a little steamy, not full on erotic detail but some very smexy lovin occurs with an open bedroom door. You won't need a cold shower but a fan for your face might be a good idea to have handy!

    I listened to the audiobooks narrated by Alexandra Haag. She does a nice steady read with distinct voices. I generally like a swifter read, even at triple time it felt slower. She has a relaxing tone that lends itself to the story. During action moments there is a feeling of energy and urgency instilled into the read. I enjoyed her read, just wish I could have sped it up a touch.

    Overall, this is a really entertaining read. I can't say that any of the events surprised me, but it still managed to make me cry at a couple points. I am a sucker when it comes to romances!! I hoped the next book would be her friend Jana, but that seemed to be wrapped up in the Epilogue. I am eager to see what happens in the next book, it will be interesting to see what happens in the time travel.

    Shannon is a quarter puma but can't shift. She's just a human with a few extra genes. But she knows how dangerous shifters are and now she's their prey. Then she's rescued by the biggest werewolf of them all. He's the sexiest male she's ever seen - jet-black hair, muscular body, piercing dark eyes and a growl that heats her blood. As the future alpha of his pack, Anton knows a cat will never be accepted. There'll be hell to pay. But it's mating heat, and he’s about to lose all control to that driving sexual need.

    Story

    Woowza, that is another uber hot read for this series!!! Good lord, warn a gal so she can have a cold shower ready!!!

    I love yummy Alpha to be Anton. He is just scrumptious!!! A gal could do worse than a smexy bossy wolf. Sure he was a player before, but once his wolf decides on a mate, all bets are off!!!

    Shannon is sweet, if a bit naive. I understand she is fighting deep cat instincts, that is the only reason I did not find her a wimp. She has plenty of sass and gumption, if she could just get those instincts under control.

    The narrative is mixed between the two leads, really smooth transitions from one POV to another. You really get into their heads with this style. I think it helps make them more engaging and real to the reader.

    I generally enjoyed the story, but feel the animosity is exaggerated. I know they are shifters, but they are human too. How is it okay to just attack some one because they are in your territory. Seriously, you own the supermarket? Every time an new wolf met poor Shannon they threatened to kill her, not a single word spoke, just straight up death threat with no introductions. Sure, that is how things run in a civilized world.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by G. C. VonCloudts, who does a great job. Plenty of variation in the voices and consistency. She has a great tone that lends itself to the material. I loved her energy throughout the read, especially in the naughty bits! I am super thankful she did not take Shannon to a whiny place, she kept her anxious without being nasal. The.The girl gives good voice!

    Overall I enjoyed the read, once I set aside the annoyance at the insta-death threats. It was another great book in this little series. I hope we get a HEA for each brother and that yummy cousin!

    By all accounts, Crease Martin was nothing but a homeless drunk and a lousy informant, but Dani counted him as one of hers. Now she'll stop at nothing to find his murderer. With a red silk handkerchief under the body as her first clue, Dani wants a quick break. When a handsome stranger practically strolls up to the crime scene, Dani can't help but notice his expensive Italian suit, red silk tie, and empty breast pocket. Could he be who she's looking for?

    Story

    This is such a great engaging read. The romance is combustible, meaning there is not a lot of time between the first meeting and smexy sheet time. While the feelings are rather quick, I loved seeing them fall.

    Dani is kind of a tough chick, ya gotta be to be a detective in the same precinct as you father. Her no nonsense attitude rocks! It is great that she can fall for a tough gut but stay true to her independent spirit.

    Hawk is yummy, most bad boys are, there is just something about them. He is mostly reformed, which puts him as a sort of good guy. I am fine with the grey area. For such a toughie, he has no trouble laying his heart bare.

    The smexy time has just enough detail to keep things naughty. Plenty of hot and heavy time for these two, serious lust at first sight. The romance is heavily built on that chemistry and leans to more feelings.

    The overall story was engaging and dynamic at times. The great thing about it is the mixed narrative. You get the leads POV, but you also get a host of other supporting characters, including the bad guy. Definitely makes for a more rounded tale. Some very intricate relationships, the story keeps you on your toes and guessing!

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Saskia Maarleveld, who is excellent. Her energy and pace really make the read move through the action and smexy scenes. She has a delightful tone that worked for all the characters. All the voices were consistent and distinct throughout the read. I would love top hear more or her work as she added to the enjoyment of the read.

    I wasn't sure I would enjoy this cop and bad boy romance, but I really was swept away with the leads. Great story telling and a nice little thriller mixed into the romance.

    As I was ambivalent about the first book, I did not expect to like this one as much as I did. The great thing about this book is that it takes up into the HEA, you get to see them working out the real life snags. There are some really wonderful moments with the supporting cast that make the book sing! I was really into this book, which is unique because I generally like my romances to have new leads each time around.

    We get to see the whole family dynamic and how it is changing with Maddy and Aiden's relationship. There is drama, there is angst and most of all there is love!! Alright, so it is more drama than anything, but that was what I was in the mood for today.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by LC Kane, who is great. I love her sweet even tone, it really fits the read. Great pace keeps the story moving along. I also like that she did not try to go too deep for the men. I enjoyed her energy throughout and the emotion she was able to convey. This read smoother than the first book in the series. Just watch those hissing "S"s, I had to adjust my earphones at one point. I will be looking for more of her work!

    While this was a great visit again with Maddy and Aiden, I would love to see other supporting characters take the lead in the next book. I am a sucker for everybody getting their HEA!!

    Story

    This is what I have come to expect from Ms Bretton, a sweet romance with loads of family drama to sort out. I generally enjoyed the story behind this sweet romance. There are many levels to delve into.

    This is more of a mature romance, not my typical fav. I like things with more action all around. Still a sweet single mom and a smexy fire-fighter single dad is a treat. There is much story here, so many wonderful supporting characters. While it is a romance there is a great deal of fiction in the story as well. It takes you on a slow ride through their lives.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by LC Kane, who is great. I love her sweet even tone, it really fits the read. Greta pace keeps the story moving along. I also like that she did not try to go too deep for the men. I enjoyed her energy throughout and the emotion she was able to convey. The only negative is that it gets breathy at times, I am not a fan of hearing the narrator take large breaths, but that is more of an editing thing. I will be looking for more of her work!

    Overall this was a sweet book that kept me entertained at work. I was not over the moon in love with it, but that had more to do with my mood than the storytelling. For fans of inter-generational stories, and mature couples in romance, this will be a great read. The story continues in the second book of the series, following the same leads.

    Story

    This was a very interesting read. I would also like to say it highlights my point about finding the right narrator for the audiobook. This book has some dialogue that can seem juvenile if not presented properly. The narration was performed in a mature manner and helped elevate the book. I read another series with similar dialogue but with a very youthful narrator, that was unsuccessful all around. This is why it is crucial to have the right combination of story and read for the audio. It really can make it or break it.

    I generally enjoyed the concept, I am usually a sucker for the ghost themes. This one has some fun turns, President Lincoln is a real hoot! I was also intrigued by the other spirits she encounters. I wish more of the book were about the ghost hunting and helping, less about the moping around because of a guy.

    Larue is a great character, most of the time. She does see a bit immature at times. I love her banter with her BFF Mindy, although they are a little slow on the uptake. I would have loved to see more hi-jinks from them. Mostly it was a case of tell about events after rather than showing them while they are happening.

    The whole book is from Larue's POV, which limits things a bit. I under stand why we can not get some of the other characters, I just wish there were more narrative insights.

    This is a pretty light romance, and bedroom free, totally clean. I expect there will be more romance in the next book, this one was mostly angst.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Elizabeth Klett, who does a fantastic job. She has a great tone that transcends the youthful dialogue. Had she not kept the maturity in her read, this could have been a very different review. Her pace is terrific, just swift enough to keep the story moving when it lagged. Her voices were great, she didn't try to butch it up for the men but she did give them a masculine touch. I will definitely be looking for more of her reads!

    Overall, this was a good read and entertaining. The beginning is engaging, the middle lags, and then the end kind of leave you hanging. Not a huge cliff hanger, but definitely not resolved.

    Story

    Such a great read!!! This series has been such a journey. Warning - If you do not want to end up an ugly-crying- sobbing mess, DO NOT READ THE EPILOGUE!!!!! I was completely devastated by the epilogue!

    I have always felt the heart of this story is the friendship between Aubrey and Jimmy. They are so loyal to each other, and sacrifice at every turn. Pretty much the whole time they stay at each other's side. The platonic "I Love You" scene is touching. It really shows the depth of their relationship.

    The book is all from Aubrey's POV, again, and you get to see how he isn't trying to be a hero, just do the right thing. Hannah is as crazy as her father, such hatred for no reason.

    With any Dystopian series, things are mostly grim, you see sparks of hope, only to have them stamped out. This journey breaks your heart more than one. The second book was tough, losing the people on the Isle of Man, Junior and a possible love interest for Jimmy. Reading the books all together, that wound is still fresh. This book rips those wounds open and throws a little salt in as well.

    There are may twists and turns revealed, one I suspected, others were a shock. Truly engaging and dynamic story telling kept the story moving, even when the action was at a lull. I loved every minute of the journey, even the ones that had me in tears. This story highlights the worst of man and the best of us as well. One of my favorite quotes was "Would I give up innocence for wisdom", it is one of the key themes for Aubrey. It is a wonder he trusts anyone in the end.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Michael Braun, who delivers a wonderful read. He has consistent and distinct voices throughout the read. My only real complaint is that the pace is very slow, even when I sped it up in the app. Fortunately that did not effect the energy of the story throughout the read. I love his tone, especially when he is reading for Jimmy. He adds just the perfect touches to bringing the tale to life. I am definitely looking for more of his reads.

    This series has been such a delight and heartbreak at the same time. When I requested a copy from the author, I really did not know what I was in for. This is one of those stories and characters that will stay with me a long time. When I think of them, there will be tears and smiles. These kinds of books are made to make you stop and think. I can only how that the powerful message is delivered to many young people.

    In Troll or Derby, fifteen-year-old Roller Deb is singled out by town bullies for both her skates, and for being different. When her popular homecoming queen of a sister is kidnapped by a scuzzy drug dealer, Deb must flee the trailer park in which she's grown up, and rescue her. Along the way, Deb becomes enmeshed in the magical realm of trolls and fairies, and the blood-thirsty version of roller derby at which these beings excel. But spending too much time among the fairies comes with a price.

    Story

    I really wasn't sure what to expect coming into this book. The story turned out to be nothing like I expected. There are so many twists and turns, it fells very jumpy at times. I enjoyed it but it is definitely an acquired taste.

    I like Deb and her spunky attitude. She is a bit of a tough girl, she is also a lesbian, which is rather vague for most of the book. It is said more in insults to her clothes and general demeanor, she makes mention of it herself, but it was such a passing comment you almost miss it. I enjoyed her narrative, she really is a sassy little thing. It must be a huge thing to discover you are not who you thought and everything around you is not what it seems.

    Harlow is the other half of the narrative, he is a great character. I loved his snarky troll thoughts. He is just trudging along and then bang, life smacks him in the face. It takes time to really get into who he is and how her grew up. Once you get all the details, the murky story comes together.

    The supporting cast is mostly bad guys, but hey, they are the meat of this tale. As things develop you see how Deb and Harlow have had to grow in a really negative atmosphere. The skating isn't key until later in the story, I thought there would be more roller derby throughout. Perhaps in the next book.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Stephanie Bentley, who is incredible! She is seriously talented and at one point I really thought there must be two narrators. The Harlow sections are so well done, I actually had to check and see if they were being done by a man. Such a fantastic job of changing the tone and keeping the read consistent. Her energy feeds into the action of the story and the emotions come through vibrantly. I am such a fan of her read, I am going to go see what else she has ASAP! Another one for my stalking...um following list.

    I was intrigued by this story and thought if flowed nicely. It does tend to go off on what appear to be tangents, they are connected but at the time they just felt like rambling. Still, I am very interested in seeing what is next for this series. It is a very modern sort of fairy tale, in the gritty traditions of the Brothers Grimm.

    Story

    This is a twofer, you get A Mommy For Christmas and a short bonus read of Meant To Be Always. They are both fairly wholesome romances. That means closed bedroom door, although there isn't really and bedroom action. It is a few sedate kisses at best.

    The first book has Melanie and Jackson, who are both healing from life. Jackson from his wife's passing and caring for his young daughter. Melanie from a broken engagement and a want for motherhood.

    The story alternates between bother of their POV, I prefer this sort of mixed narrative. It really makes for a fuller story.

    This story is super short, it really could be lengthened and have the romance play out over a longer period of time. While it was a sweet read, it did leave me wanting more story.

    The second story is even shorter and less believable. Maddie and Brice, have great chemistry but one night does not forever make. This is another story that would benefit from more length to truly develop the romance.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Tiffany Williams, who does a lovely job. Her voice and energy are perfectly suited to this sweet romance. I enjoyed her character's voices and the distinctions she gave them. It was always clear who was speaking. Her tone has a soft and feminine quality that is great for a sappy love story. I would love to hear more of her reads in this genre.

    These are two quick Holiday reads that have a lovely premise. I would enjoy reading more of this author and seeing her expand her romances into longer novels. I think she has so much to offer and length would enhance the relationships she creates.

    Story

    The second book in the series is just as engaging and dynamic as the first. There are so many levels to this story. Just when you think you have things figured out, there will be a sharp turn that takes it to a whole other place! warning, if you are an emotional sort, you will need tissues at one point, maybe two!

    Once again was are all first person coming from Aubrey's POV. It is tough to really get a feel for other character's motivations without being told. It does add an element of surprise to the story, as you find out when he does. That aspect really keeps you on your toes.

    Aubrey has always been likeable, if a touch of a know it all, and loyal to a fault. He is also far too trusting, by now you think some of the shine would have come off of him. So often he is stuck playing mediator between his friends. It is a tough place to be. I do really enjoy how tight he and Jimmy are and the connection they share. Hannah, is another story, I think she inherited more than a little of her father's sketchy ideals.

    The journey they take in this book is fascinating because we see more of what has become of the Earth. How other species had evolved and some humans de-evolved. There are many surprises when they reach the Isle of Man. I wish we could have spent more time there and had more about the relationships that were formed. This would have been a great place to have some narrative from Jimmy. I suspect that would have made later events even more heartbreaking.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Michael Braun, who is wonderful. I really enjoy the distinction between the men's voices, he keeps them consistent throughout. His women's voices are light without trying to be overly feminine. He doesn't go to the whiny upper range, so many male narrators fall into that trap. He has a great pace throughout the read. He adds plenty of energy and emotion to the read. Really a terrific fit, he blend story and narration beautifully.

    I am thoroughly enjoying this series and the rare male protagonist in a young adult read. While the story has romantic elements, they are not the driving force of the story. I really wish more YA would take that approach.

    What is going to happen next! While we are not at a true cliffhanger, things are far from settled at the end. I can not wait to jump strait into the next book! Thank goodness the whole series is out and there is no waiting!

    This is a great second book in the series. We get to find out about Payton and Collin. They are kind of an opposites match. She is very set in her schedule and he has all the wolfie stuff going on. Turns out she mellows him and he loosens her up.

    The story this time goes into more detail about the genetic testing, that has been going on for some time. There are many more connections and coincidences, not sure I was buying all of them. It would seem the world of Pharmaceuticals is very connected. A small petri dish, to use a bit of science humor!

    The romance develops rather quickly. I am coming to expect that in this series. I am totally believing there are feelings there, I am just not to love yet. This book does have open bedroom door lovin!! Just enough detail to make it naughty but not enough to take it to erotic.

    The book has a mixed narrative, you get both leads POV and some supporting cast. It is very intriguing to have insight into the thoughts of the bad guys. It definitely makes for a richer reading experience.

    I love the supporting cast and really hope we get to see HEA for them too. I know it is mostly about the sisters, but I would love to see the military boys find love as well.

    I listened to the audiobook narrated by Robin Rowan, who is great. I loved her energy and the tone of her voice. She did a great job with both men and women. I was very happy to find she tones down Payton's voice in this book. She has a great pace that moves with the action of the story. I really hope she stays with the series.

    Overall , this is a highly entertaining book. So much going on in the story that the romance tends to take a back seat. I can not wait for Willow's book!!
