    Blythe Gifford’s spellbinding medieval romances have captured the hearts of fans and critics alike. Set in 14th-century England, In the Master’s Bed features Jane de Weston, a young woman who decides to disguise herself as a man to gain her independence. What she doesn’t count on is falling for Duncan, the strapping Scotsman who takes her on as his apprentice. When he discovers Jane’s deception, Duncan knows he should send her away, but the yearning he feels for her is begging to be unleashed - and Jane is a very willing pupil.

    Story

    Cute love story but the ending is kinda boring and upsetting. Girl is a tomboy in a time when ladies are suppose to be ladies but she finds love in the tutor who trains her. He discovers she is a girl and teaches her all about smex. Ending get boring after the love affair though, I felt like the writer just wanted to end the story.

    Not a buy. Wait for a credit.

    Narration was good.

    Wow... these books get better and better. I personally love m/m romance, but this was more of a m/m/f romance... which are usually not done right, because if three people are going to be in a relationship... why do all three people always have to be together at the same time... that is just not realistic... but Kit has figured it out... especially about the m/m relationship in a threesome...

    This was perfect... Ace and Kane had to have a relationship of their own to fully be secure in the threesome... It's like each person had to have a solid relationship with each other... which totally made this work... I loved it..

    This books are graphic, raw and down right smexy!!! So enjoyable...

    Worth a credit or sale...b/c this book is pretty pricey!

    Narration...of course was Amayz!

    Deputy US Marshal Miro Jones has a reputation for being calm and collected under fire. These traits serve him well with his hotshot partner, Ian Doyle, the kind of guy who can start a fight in an empty room. In the past three years of their life-and-death job, they've gone from strangers to professional coworkers to devoted teammates and best friends. Miro’s cultivated blind faith in the man who has his back… faith and something more.

    Seriously, another Matter of Times book!!!! Ok.. let me calm my nerves!!! I was so not expecting this!!!

    Ok.. I absolutely love the Matter of Times series... and I though Duncan and Aaron's book was the last...but Wowza!!! This was just sooo... amazing... I loved the relationship between Miro and Ian!!!

    It was so well done... I mean how could Ian not be in love with Miro the way he was always touchy feely with him...it was so obvious... I love how the reader totally knows these two are in love, but the characters have yet to discover their own feelings... Calmes is a genius in letting the reader know "of course these two are meant for each other" without actually telling you and letting the story unfold... It was great!

    Plus.. we get to see Sam Cage in action! Love that... It was like all the characters we love came back in either a scene or a cameo... (Duncan, Aaron, Jory and the Cage kids) Plus the minivan!!!! LOL... AWESOME!!!

    So worth a credit, buy or sale... I must have if you have invested in the Matter of Times series.

    Narration was great... Loved Miro's voice!

    You know what... I love everything Mary Calmes write...well just about.. Her paranormal stories are just as good as her non-paranormal books... I loved how this book started.. I was like... how is this paranormal...then bam! The wolves come out! This was simply great. The relationship between the two main characters was extremely well written, and it only help add to the drama when everything started happening... Loved it!

    Mary Calmes is one of the top m/m romance writers so, yeah.. so worth a credit, buy or sale.

    Narration was awesome!

I found my self laughing out loud at moments and getting just as angry as the characters when unfortunate stuff would happen.... but the HEA was awesome!!! Well worth a credit or sale.

    I didn't like this one as much as I enjoyed book 1. The heroine left! WTF!!! Why leave when you have all these alpha men surrounding you for protection... I mean... I get it..she wanted to protect her guy...but c'mon!

    Anyway.. this was still a good listen. The smexy time was simply great... the action and adventure was not half bad either.

    Narration... well I hate dual narration...but other than that.. I was ok... nothing to complain about...

    Sierra hit it off with Hayden from the moment they met. The dangerously sexy, tattooed ex-SEAL is one of the best friends she’s ever had - and the main star in her wildest fantasies. But he doesn’t see her that way. And she’d die of embarrassment if he found out she was still a virgin. When an attacker targets Sierra, Hayden’s protective instincts go into overdrive. With the attraction between them burning out of control, he’ll do whatever it takes to protect her and convince her they’re meant to be together.

    Katie Reus books are always enjoyable. This is the first book in the Sin City series, about the Serafina Hotel and it's employees. I like it. Very basic damsel in distress story, but the alpha maleness is what makes this story stand out. So smexy!

    Great for a quick listen/read!

    Narration was great... no complaints here... Great credit, or sale.

    Music is the only form of communication Connor Owens controls. No matter how badly he wishes to fit in, friendly banter and casual conversations have never been his thing. College is yet another social universe he has no clue how to navigate - until he meets Jared, a football player with chestnut eyes and a cocky grin that holds the power to shatter his self-imposed prison.

    When homicide detective Dexter J. Daley’s testimony helps send his partner away for murder, the consequences - and the media frenzy - aren’t far behind. He soon finds himself sans boyfriend, sans friends, and, after an unpleasant encounter in a parking garage after the trial, he’s lucky he doesn’t find himself sans teeth. Dex fears he’ll get transferred from the Human Police Force’s Sixth Precinct, or worse, get dismissed.

    Wow! I totally loved this book! I can't hardly wait to listen to the rest of the THIRDS... Please Audible....hurry up and get this entire series on here!

    I have to admit...starting out... I thought this was going to be a long drawn out boring book, half-way at an attempt to mix m/m romance with paranormal suspense...but NOPE! What I got was a complete emotional roller coaster! I totally fell in love with every single character... to included the relationships among Destructive Delta (the THIRDS team).

    I wish there was a bit more smexy time...but the smexy time added to the story...the story didn't revolve around it... which is always a plus....

    The side relationship with Dex's brother and Sloane's BFF...well now... that is going to be one interesting book! Oh let's not forget the two silent team members... Trust me...once you listen you will definitely know what I am talking about.

    All in all this book was great. Dex was a cop, who got transferred to the THIRDS because he testified against his crooked partner. Fortunately for him, his brother and "dad" are members of this new shifter team of cops. Dex is cooky and off the wall with his antics but he is a great cop... and Sloane well...he comes off as this tough shifter team leader, but he was simply a man trying to cope with the loss of his lover. I loved the build up and angsty moments between Dex and Sloane...

    Hopefully book 2 will flesh out their relationship a bit more...

    So worth a credit or sale... Narration was good..not great...but good!

    The argument for my bail begins, and I lower my head until the doors behind me crash open with a thunderous roar. A vibration rushes through my body, I look up at the judge as his eyes widen and a cold silence takes hold of the room. It's him. I know it's him. It can be no other. Before I can turn I whisper his name and feel the energy of him blaze up my body as if the simple whisper of his name makes it true, makes him true.

    OMG! Why, oh Why did the narration change for book 2! Finally I fall in love with a dual narration...which I usually hate.. and them bam! Book 2 has the worst narration ever... I can't even tell who is talking half the time. Such a waste too...because this series is so good... it should be a crime... but man... the narration was just horrible... I seriously hope Audible goes back to their narration table and get the two that did book 1 to lock in for the rest of this series... OMG! Do disappointed...

    I have no idea what actually happen... I skipped here and there...Had to rewind just to figure out who said what! Horrible...

    Now, since I have read the actual book, I already know that Nick comes back and the ending was superb... another baby on board... Nick's sister has some drama with Nick's enemy...I mean I was a great read...but narration.. HORRIBLE!!!

    Worth a sale... don't buy or credit...you will be disappointed.

Now Lyla is pouring all her energy into her band, Vintage. So when they receive an offer to sign with TMS Records, it seems that things are finally turning around. The last thing that Lyla wants is a man getting in the way. Tom Carter loves women. More accurately, Tom enjoys screwing lots of women

    This was super good...but just not on the same level as Jake and Tru's story. I honestly think it was the narration... If maybe just one narrator would have read this, I could stay in character better. IDK... plus the whole I want you so bad, but no, your a whore thing...was a bit much in the beginning... Plus we all know Tom as the horn dog...but in this, he was just so not Tom... Like I said...it was good...but not great..

    Definitely worth a credit, but maybe not a buy... yes to sale...most definitely...
