    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.

    Where does Reckless rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty darn good. I swear I listen to the first book and wish I hadn't bought the series because you just want to choke the crap out of Kiera maybe kick her ass. But then the second book was corny but okay I did like the hearts and flower angles, makes you wish your spouse was more romantic.
    The last book of the series was the best. I laughed I cried. I was shopping at the mall and had to sit and listen because it got so intense.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Reckless?

    Spoiler Alert***





    When KK saved KK by using himself as a human shield.


    Which character – as performed by Rebekkah Ross – was your favorite?

    KK


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Don't leave your woman with a rock god. Or The bus trip.


    Any additional comments?

    If you start the series and finish it to the end you will be rewarded.
    The last book wraps everything up.

And when he's ready to love not only himself but someone else, sex and love fit, at last, into one perfect package.

    Okay this book was a little long. After awhile I was wishing for better luck for a man who made so many bad choices in just sucking of random strangers in restaurants and letting everyone watch him have sex with multiple partners in bathhouses. Finally he gets the help he needs and even though he realize he's a sex addict he still wants random hookups. The end he finds his truce and a new romance that's normal. Then the book ends. We still don't know if he's hiv free with all the hooking up we were submitted to. Maybe their will be a third book to explain his new life. Worth a credit or Amazon book to audio purchase.

    Is there room for love in a heart full of secrets? One year ago, before Fate took a wrecking ball to his life, Nichol was happily working on his doctorate in linguistics. Now he's hip deep in sheep, mud, and collies. His late brother and mother had been well-suited to life on Seacliff Farm. Nichol? Not so much.

    Okay I'm ashamed to admit that the first few chapters seemed dumb. I stopped listening and selected other new downloads by Jay Bell. I came back to this book and gave it 30 minutes and I was hooked. I stayed up overnight to listen to ever minute. This story is not just a romance, it's a suspense a drama and a little bit of a gay highlander story. Its just bloody well written. Definitely worth a credit.

    Jason Grant doesn't have much, aside from a beat-up old guitar and knack for getting kicked out of foster homes. His latest placement is set to be just another in a long line of failures. Then he meets Caesar Hubbard, a handsome guy who lives down the hall. For the first time in his life, Jason wants to stay, which means learning to be part of a family, and not letting his feelings - or his actions - ruin his first real chance of falling in love.

    Story

    This was a good story with a HEA. Unfortunately I cried when Jay wrote in a Jace scene. That's about it. The last book I cried way more. This one was not as passionate you just followed the life of a young man making his way in the world while thinking of what could of been. I could of done without 8 hours of him finding himself to spending 8 hours of being in love but that's not what we get. The beginning of the book he ended up hooking up with an older foster brother who never loved him but used him, I felt that he was taken advantage of and should of found happiness after that but he didn't. The book jumped a number of years and he was still in limbo. When he fell in love again they only had a short time to be together and then the book Jumped forward some more with a stupid love triangle. The orphan does find love in the end but I felt cheated because who he ended up with their story wasn't really told. It ended with them Starting a real beginning. The background of the book told a lot of Tim and Bens story but it was just okay. Narrator was good and it was okay for a credit.

    There are two sides to every story. When you're Tim Wyman, sometimes there are three. Tim hoped moving to Texas would mean a new beginning, but he soon finds himself falling into the same tired patterns. Until he meets recklessly brave Benjamin Bentley, who introduces Tim to a world of love, sex, and warmth. Certain that society won't understand what he and Ben have together, Tim struggles to protect their relationship, even if it means twisting the truth. Buried beneath his own deceptions, Tim must claw his way to the surface in the hopes of learning to fly.

    I passed this up so many times because I thought it was one of those high school romance teen novel. Boy was I wrong. I laughed I cried and I was tuned in for the whole 18 hours. I did not read book 1 and I didn't feel like I missed anything. I did download the next two books and plan on reading book 1 one day. When they say this book scanned a bunch of years it did however you don't feel like it's to much. The lovers live their lives but true love always wins. Jay Bell I am now a fan. Thankyou!🎁📚🎼🎵📰😘

    Henry Clueley doesn't want to be in Glamour, not after moving far away to overcome a difficult, if privileged, childhood. He's no longer that pudgy kid desperate to escape his hometown, but it still holds painful memories. When his recently widowed mother needs him, however, "dependable Henry" does the right thing - even if it means leaving the IRS to take a boring corporate position. Things don't stay boring for long. Soon Henry helps the local sheriff's department unravel a crime.

    Anthony Carrino loves his big, gregarious Italian-American family, even if his sisters are interfering, and his dad, the local sheriff, knows everything going on in town. He's happy as a middle school guidance counselor. Despite helping kids and their parents fix their problems, Anthony can't manage to get his own love life right. If only everyone would stop calling him the "nice" guy.

    I didn't quite understand the name. That is why I passed it up several times. Now I get it Glamour is the name of a town not a prissy beauty school. This was actually well written a story about a man in the military who has to leave to care for his niece and the guidance counsellor who takes her in. The narration was great especially the sibling bickering. I downloaded the next edition @audible and plan on reading the last book since it's not offered as an audiobook. I hope you give this more a modern cover. The teacher in his hot glasses and the giant pilot gazing at each other. Just saying.

    One thing Liam Turner knows for sure is that he's not gay - after all, his father makes it very clear he’ll allow no son of his to be gay. And Liam believes it, until a chance meeting with James "Jay" Bell turns Liam’s world upside-down. Jay is vivacious and unabashedly gay - from the tips of his bleached hair to the ends of his polished nails. With a flair for fashion, overreaction, and an inability to cork his verbal diarrhea, drama queen Jay must have a screw loose.

    Where does Loving Jay rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    What's not to love ? A shy closeted former football player pursuit of an openly gay man. This book was funny, honest,and purely a special book. I was glad to use a credit on this one.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Loving Jay?

    When Jay told the story on how he missed the train on purpose to just talk to Liam.


    Have you listened to any of Dave Gillies’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I loved his accent and he made funny passages exciting.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Liam outing himself accidently and didn't care.


    Any additional comments?

    Would love to find out what Liam brother and Jays sister get into. I hope theirs a novella. Or book 2. Imagine Jay with kids and pets.

    Zack Sheldon doesn't have time to be lonely. He's in his last year as a pediatric resident, almost married to the job, and busy with the joys and sorrows that come with providing medical care to children. Professionally, he's confident, accomplished, and respected. But personally he's too insecure to approach a sexy man like Sergio Quartulli, or even to imagine that Sergio might be attracted to him.

    What made the experience of listening to A White Coat Is My Closet the most enjoyable?

    Closeted pediatrician who is very afraid of being discovered makes a series of mistakes and always apologizing for his faults. Finally he realizes who and what's important to him and this is his story. It is a heart warming read not an erotic romance but a slow burn that you will remember.


    What about Randy Fuller’s performance did you like?

    Loved his deep voice. Excellent preformance.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    This story speaks of life and death it will make you laugh and cry. Truefully his quick wit and banter between co workers makes it very funny.

    When coed Ally Monroe literally falls into the arms of a tattooed bad-boy one summer night, she can’t seem to let go. Morgan Jordan is everything Ally doesn’t want — he’s a playboy from a blue-collar background, and Ally’s looking for upper-class stability. Though their relationship starts off as a one-night stand, once Ally learns Morgan is her best friend’s brother, there’s no escaping him…or the growing fire between them.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I don't know where to start, some parts I liked such as the children are well behaved and honest. Ben however is a snob who is boaring and thinks he's al that. It seems
    If his parents hadn't died he would of never talked to Travis. Speaking of Travis a mechanic who rents a room from neighbors and don't have a pot to piss in falls for Ben and then puts up with his crap and belittling, he leaves town and upon return he dosen't make Ben grovel. It seems there weren't to many men to choose from.
