    When Kellan’s band gains stardom, Kiera and Kellan’s relationship is put to the ultimate test. Can their love for each other withstand the constant pressure of superstardom? The friendships they’ve formed, the new family they’ve found, and the history they’ve forged will all play a part in helping them navigate the turbulent waters of the band’s exploding popularity. A greedy executive hell-bent on success, a declining pop star looking for an edge, and a media circus that twists lies into truths are just some of the obstacles the lovers will have to overcome if they are going to remain together.

    Let me say this right now… I totally love Kellan and Kiera. I totally love the Thoughtless series.. and I have being waiting like forever for Effortless to come out so maybe my expectation were just a little bit too high.

    Now. Review time.

    This book picks up like right after book 2… like right after the bar wedding… in fact Kellan and Kiera are on their honeymoon. I must say, even the smex scenes in this book did not leave me gasping and covering my mouth like the other books did. I was soooo waiting for that too. The story was good… I mean it was just what you would expect for Kellan and Kiera’s relationship to evolve into. Plus I was so proud of Kiera for handling KelSex the way she did. So mature from Kiera’s previous personality. Great improvement, but I kind of wish old Kiera would have made an appearance and slapped Sextan around the bar one good time…. But she didn’t. The whole book I was waiting for that pinch in the heartstring feeling and it just didn’t come. So for me… I totally love the story…but it was like one huge epilogue for the first two books. It kind of just finalizes everything. Well I take that back… only one drama filled scene happen right at the end…but it was over and done then everything summed up nicely. If you’re a fan of this series by all means… get this book and listen and enjoy. Just don’t expect your toes to curl like it did with book 1 and 2, this will just round out the series for you.

    Narration was great as usual.

    Good buy if you’re a fan/ good credit if you’re just getting started.

    Ok... so this really can't be described as Historical, as the verbage used just wasn't correct for the time period...but you know what... I actually liked that about this book. It was great... I wish some of my current favorite Historical Romances, add a F*** or D*** it, here or there...

    Very smexy book... this boarders on erotica...but the whole historical twist makes it a fine and extremely smexy romance...

    Well worth a credit..I enjoyed it.

    Narration was great too.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    The first time Virginia went to the dance club On The Edge, she only wanted to find out what a night in a vampire’s arms would be like. Anando showed her it could be much, much more than she had imagined. Over the next few months, every time she returned he continued to stretch her imagination and the boundaries she tried to set on their relationship.

    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..

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.

    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...
