    When Scott Alan gets a phone call that his brother was hurt on a logging job, he rushes to Brian’s side, only to find that his injuries are minor - but not before he meets Hank Ballam, an adrenaline-seeking logger who's an outcast among his co-workers. Hank is a study in contrast: he lives for the rush of climbing and cutting trees almost as much as he loves the peace he finds exploring the mountains he calls home. Scott’s attraction to Hank is immediate and mind-blowing, and it’s what Scott has always wanted....

    Story

    This was a very cute and witty story. I love the whole tree climber thing.. I think I really like a really strong lead character in my stories though and a struggling one. This one had two really strong leads so, the balance was just to balanced it you know what I mean. Good drama, especially when the accident happens,but other than that... this was just cute.

    David is a great narrator. I will look for more David narration.

    Good credit, not a good buy. I feel kinda jipped... b/c I bought.. I wish I would have waited for my credit... but some you win and some you lose...right!

    Emma decided to skip the gym and went home early. It was the last easy decision she made because she found her roommate being raped by her boyfriend. She had two choices: Call the cops and be killed by his family's mafia connections or kill him first and hope to survive. There was no choice to her. She killed the bastard first and went to the one person who could protect her: Carter Reed. He's a weapon

    Maybe I am totally wrong in saying this...but Mafia Romance is sooooo extremely hot! I totally loved that Carter was a criminal, a bad to the bone criminal, and I loved the drama, action, and criminal activities done thoughout the story...

    I mean why listen to a story about bad guys when they don't do anything bad! So this was awesome... great smexy time and romance between Emma and Carter. Loved the ending...and I really hope there will be a book 2, because I so wanna dive into Teresa and Noah's story! Great Great...

    Credit well spent... Great narration...love those shift in voices!

    Story

    I am huge J. Ashley fan, so I usually enjoy anything from this author...but honestly these Shifter Unbound books are awesome! We r getting so close to finding out the whole collar thing and how to get them off our smexy shifters! I simply love how J.A. weaves the two shiftertowns together, and now with Jace mating a shifter from Austin...well it one big o'l happy family.

    This book goes deeper into the faire realm, more so than book 2 and Jace's book.The plot is getting deeper but so enjoyable!

    Narration was awesome...

    Well worth the credit or a sale...maybe not a buy...as it's over 10 bucks...

    Eliza Smith has never been the one to seek a relationship. She's never dated a guy in her life, never even hugged a man (outside of her father/manager of the hot and popular rock band, FireNine) but when she decides to spend her summer on tour with FireNine, it all changes. Eliza really gets to meet Gage Grendel - her former crush from high school and the lead singer of FireNine - and witness sides to him to which she'll begin to truly despise. She'll ignore him, she'll dislike his ways, she'll do anything to try and stay away from him until Gage finally gets her to slip up and give in.

    I totally like the story.... BUT.... I totally was bored throughout it...

    The beginning was exciting and interesting... then meeting the band was interesting too...but the story started to drag with all the angsty parts...

    Don't misunderstand... the story had all the hot smexyness one would think to this story... Yes it was very very smexy...at times... it is the times the story wasn't about the smexyness...in those parts... I was rather bored...just wish the story would move on...

    THEN the ending...WT...F? I was so upset... So now I am just conflicted... Great, Great Story...but boring in parts and hated the ending... So there you go... listen at your own angsty risk!

    Narration was ok...

    Good Sale... haven't decided if I spent my credit wisely or not...because again... I am conflicted.. I liked it...but I didn't!

    Psychologist Elizabeth Cole prepared for the worst when she accepted a job on a newly discovered world--a world where every colonist is tethered to an alien who manifests in the form of a dead loved one. But she never expected she'd struggle with the requirement to shun these "ghosts." She never expected to be so attracted to the charming Irishman assigned as her supervisor. And she certainly never expected to discover she died in a transport crash en route to the planet.

    Story

    This was actually less ghostly than one might think. Yes the dead people are ghosts in a sense as they are people who have died and came and are bonded to people that they have in their lifetime. Oh...this st o ryan isn't set on planet earth..but a distance plant called RR or something like that. Smart move by the author as it is much easier to wrap ur mind around the ghost r aliens thing.

    The story literally becomes engaging right from the beginning...and remains that way till the end. The romance and character development was a nice bonus.

    Well worth the credit...narration was great as well...

    Austin Glass seems to have it all: a loving fiancée, a future with the FBI, and a healthy-sized trust fund. At least on the surface. He also has a grin and a wisecrack for every situation. But the smile he presents to the world hides a painful past he’s buried too deeply to remember, and his quips mask bitterness and insecurity. Austin has himself and most of the whole world fooled - until he meets a redhead in a pair of bunny slippers.

    Story

    This book was awesome! M/M romance fans...you are so going to want this book! The story is what is so great, more so than the character development...but wow, there are some great, and extremely well developed characters, right down to the bevey of secondary characters...

    The romance is slow and engaging...not many amex scenes...but unlike most m/m romance books where u literally need the smex at times to drive the story forward...the smex was more so apart of the story and written so well you hardly notice there is smex in this book. Although good scenes, I do wish there were more...but because u learn the background of the characters so well...when they actually get around to smexy time...u understand why they only went as far as they did...made perfect sense!

    I LOVED the background of the 3 not brothers, but brothers! I loved the dialogue in this book....so funny, so serious and so dramatic! Just Awesome...AWESOME!

    Narration was great...first time with this narrator...

    Definitely worth the credit... Remember this is a m/m romance, mystery, suspense book...so if neither of those are ur cup of tea...well skip this and drink cola!

    ** I have a new love for bunny slippers!

    This is erotica...so be fore warned... the story was actually sweet in parts, intense in others...but all in all it was pleasurable to listen to. I actually skipped like a half of a chapter at one point just to get to the action after the (H) left or rather ran away.... loved the HEA... ending...but I kinda hope there is a book 2 because I definitely fill like the story is not possibly over yet...

    OK narration...could be a whole lot better, but totally tolerable to enjoy this story...

    Nice credit or sale..

    Nobody knows the real Chase. Chase Summers has a razor blade to his wrist and the smell of his lover's goodbye clinging to his skin. He has a door in his heart so frightening he'd rather die than open it, and the lies he's used to block it shut are thinning with every forbidden touch. Chase has spent his entire life unraveling, and his decision to set his sexuality free in secret has only torn his mind apart faster.

    When I wake up in a dark, unfamiliar room, I have no idea what's waiting for me in the shadows. My imagination conjures up demons of the worst kind. Reality is much worse: A collar with no leash. A prison with no walls. And a life stripped of meaning. A collar with no leash. A prison with no walls. And a life stripped of meaning. I am presented with a vile contract and asked to sign. It outlines the terms of my servitude.

    OMG! I need the rest of this series like yesterday! I have never rated a 5-star for part of a series...but Man this was awesome for the way the book started...

    Very Very dark romance... just the way I like my darky romance... their seriously has to be some level of violence to be called dark... and boy this did not disappoint... I think...as the thick of the story hasn't even been told...but from how this book started and the main (H) character's personality.... so far.. You know he is one crazy so and so....!

    I need more than 2hrs of this story.... Come on Audible... give me more!!!

    Narration was great... and for 4 bucks.... why not save a credit...

    Ember Walsh is a trusting soul with the quiet beauty of her late mother, who perished in a mysterious car crash when Ember was three. A little tomboyish from being raised by her father, Ember packs a punch when a stranger gets pushy with her in a bar, catching the steely blue eyes of a tall, gorgeous tattooed man — Trace Montgomery. Still damaged from her last disastrous relationship and warned off the bad boy by friends, Ember fights the smoldering heat that Trace sparks in her when he begins shadowing her like a dark angel.

    Why the bad reviews... this book was awesome... Yes...this cover needs some work, b/c the story really don't have anything to do with fight...

    Yes the main male character ( Trez) is an amateur fighter...but that is only a snippet of the true story...

    Ok...quick summary without giving too much away: Trez dad was a douche, long history and crazy storyline there... now Trez is all grown but is a total player... In comes Emory... nice girl who's mom died when she was 3... Em meet Trez and they sorta kinda hit if off... a lot of crazy but sweet stuff happens, and Em is now with Trez... he is totally damaged, and does the ultimate to push Em away... which he finally does... Now bring in Em's dad and uncle... who investigate the whole Trez's background which somehow (surprise) links to Em's mom...

    Ending was HEA!

    Totally worth a credit or buy...pretty cheap book... Story was great.. had Awesome Smexy time and drama... Man the DRAMA! I loved it...

    Narration was pretty ok too.... All in all... I totally enjoyed this book! Hope there is squeal b/c the secondary characters (Lucien and the other bff of Trez) most definitely need their own book!

    After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father's mantle - with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head. As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything - and everyone - at risk. Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it.

    Story

    Look! It's like this you either love or hate J.R. Ward.... so all the bad reviews about the other stories within the stories... Ummmm Dude... that is the way all of J.R. Ward books are... so get over it!

    Now... review... this was one of the best Brotherhood books...I absolutely loved the whole prestory interwoven into the main story.... (Prestory about Wrath's parents)... is was bittersweet...

    I simply loved Wrath in this book... I fell in love with him in book 1, but Man-O-Man.... he really has come a long way since book 1... dealing with the blindness, the kingship, and the lack of fighting... (he is a brother after all, it is in his blood)!

    The fact that Beth is a half-vamp really plays a part in this story.. down to the pregos... but I loved the ending... OMG! The steps that Wrath took to protect not only Beth but their baby... was WOW! Then when the vamp community stepped up (listen to the book and you will get it) was AWESOME!

    Now... the other stories.... Layla and Xcor... Ok.. I get this couple and why their story was in this book... I totally have a different respect for Layla... and I so hope the next book is thier story.... and I hope somehow... the Band of Bastards join the Brothers...maybe not become brothers...but partners or something...

    Now Sola and Azail... ok... not sure why their story was in the book...didn't really pertain to the thick of the story...but I did like their story... Sola and Azail are that WTF couple...

    It is gonna such waiting another year for the next Brotherhood book... but YES... instant download when it does come out...

    Totally Credit this...b/c this book is pretty darn expensive... Narration was great as usual...Frangione is the brotherhood to me... nothing else will do...!
