    Carina Conte has had a crush on her brother Michael’s best friend, Max Gray, since she was a teenager back home in Italy. Now she’s earned her MBA and come to work at Michael’s new venture, America’s fastest-growing bakery empire. But some things never change: Her overprotective family still treats her like a child. With three drop-dead gorgeous siblings, she’s still the ugly duckling of the bunch. And Max, the company’s new CEO, still barely notices her. Max knows Carina Conte is strictly off-limits, for the sake of his job and his friendship with Michael.

    Well, she did it again....another easy listening (simple) romance story that I really enjoyed. Much like the first two books, it's a little unbelievable and completely predictable but I can't help but like this series. So far this one was my favorite. If you like book 1 or book 2 then you will enjoy this one too.
    Again, the narrator is great and I'm looking forward to the next installment.

    This short novella is from Ansel's point of view and I just loved getting inside his head. If you loved Sweet Filthy Boy then you must get this one. It might be a short listen but it definitely packed a big punch. Not to mention Jason Carpenter's narration is terrific.

    5 star listen!

    This is a world where sin and salvation collide. This is a world where a cynical fallen angel struggles with the seven deadly sins and seven chosen souls. With the spellbinding Immortal, the riveting series that "changed the face of paranormal romance" comes to an epic close as mankind's reluctant savior struggles with his greatest challenge yet.

    Story

    I was surprised to discover this was the final book in the Fallen Angels Series. What about 7 books for 7 souls – or at least that is what I had assumed. It makes me wonder if JR Ward got tired of writing this series and just decided to end it at book 6. The one was good but it did feel rushed compared to the previous books in the series. I would have preferred a little more “meat on the bone” to this story but I guess the author had another view. Fair enough, it’s her series.

    Overall I mostly enjoyed this book and I am satisfied with the overall conclusion even if it did feel rushed. As with all the other books, Devina was the true star and her character made me laugh and at times feel sorry for her. I credit Ward for her brilliant writing and character development.

    I would recommend this series to fans of Ward or those who enjoy paranormal romance or fantasy.
    4 stars!

    This is such a hard review for me to write since I really can’t explain why I kept listening to this one. I think I have a love/hate relationship with this book. There were so many things I didn’t like about the main character and many of her choices/actions were unrealistic for someone her age. I usually don’t have an issue with suspending my belief when it comes to paranormal romance but I struggled with this one. All the negative comments aside, I just couldn’t stop listening to this one. What was it about this book?? I suppose I really enjoyed the mystery and just had to know everyone’s deep dark secrets. Although not all the secrets were revealed in this book. I’m sure I will purchase the next one because the price is right and I apparently need some answers.

    After the successful but disastrous raid on Mount Weather, Daemon's facing the impossible. Katy is gone. Taken. Everything becomes about finding her. Taking out anyone who stands in his way? Done. Burning down the whole world to save her? Gladly. Exposing his alien race to the world? With pleasure. Surrounded by enemies, the only way Katy can come out of this is to adapt. After all, there are sides of Daedalus that don't seem entirely crazy, but the group's goals are frightening...

    I’ve enjoyed all the books in this series but Origins is by far the best one yet.
    After that gut-wrenching cliffhanger in Opal, I was a little hesitant to dive into this one. It’s a game changer for sure and will definitely keep you on the edge of your seat. Without giving away too many details, this one felt like two stories in one. The first being Katy’s experience as a prisoner by Daedalus and the second the future of the Luxen race and the big reveal (the game changer). The dual POV was a nice addition to this series as well. I really enjoyed getting into Daemon’s head in this one. There’s another cliffhanger with Origins but thankfully it won’t rip your heart out like Opal did. I can’t wait to listen to the final installment of this fantastic series!

    5 stars!

    After traveling through time in Shadow of Night, the second book in Deborah Harkness's enchanting series, historian and witch Diana Bishop and vampire scientist Matthew Clairmont return to the present to face new crises and old enemies. At Matthew's ancestral home at Sept-Tours, they reunite with the cast of characters from A Discovery of Witches - with one significant exception. But the real threat to their future has yet to be revealed, and when it is, the search for Ashmole 782 and its missing pages takes on even more urgency.

    I am so disappointed with this book! It was such a colossal waste of time and I will never be able to get back those 23+ hours I lost on this horrible book.
    I should have expected disappointment after book two but I had high hopes that it was just suffering from "middle book syndrome". Sadly no...
    I adored A Discovery of Witches, thought Shadow of Night was boring, but I seriously disliked The Book of Life. It did not tie up any loose ends, there was absolutely no resolution on Ashmole 782 (really, what was the point of all of that?) and it was flat out boring.
    I honestly don't know what happened to this series!

But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation - and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out - Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume - her sweet, filthy fling - to France for the summer and just…play.

I honestly didn't think they could pull off another book as good as The Beautiful Series but they did! I'm just mad at myself for not listening to this one sooner!! I can't wait for the next installment and I can assure you I will not wait 3-4 months before devouring it.

But when the two got caught in the middle of their families’ war, tragedy struck, leaving Thronos and Lanthe bitter enemies. Though centuries have passed, nothing can cool his seething need for the beautiful enchantress who scarred his body - and left an even deeper impression on his soul.

    Hands down one of the best paranormal romance series EVER! Most tend to get stale after too many books, but this one keeps getting better and better. This is number 14 in the Immortals After Dark series and it is as fresh as the first. I love how Ms. Cole weaves the timelines of her books together and revisits moments we have seen by other characters in previous books. It's just brilliant! I wish I could give this book (and the series) 10 stars!

    No one is like Daemon Black. When he set out to prove his feelings for Katy, he wasn't fooling around. Doubting him isn't something she'll do again and now that they've made it through the rough patches, well, there's a lot of spontaneous combustion going on. But even he can't protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they loved. With help coming from the most unlikely source and Adam's death still lingering with those who loved him, friends will become the deadliest of enemies and the villains will no longer be clear.

    This series just keeps getting better and better with every book. And the cliffhanger ending – WOW! I both love and hate Jennifer Armentrout for her incredible endings. This book was definitely more intense than the first two as emotions run high with the return of Dawson and the hunt for Beth. I don’t want to give away any spoilers – so I’ll just say this is another amazing story by a very talent author.

Declan Burke wants his wife back, and with a little manipulation and a lot of reward money, he's got the entire world on his side. Except for the one man she dreads confronting the most: Noah Tucker.

    Story

    This was a thrilling conclusion to the 2-part Archetype series (my favorite of 2014). Much like the first book, this was chock-full of action, romance and endless plot twists. It had the perfect blend of everything I enjoy in a romance novel. Some people might be turned off by the sci-fi/dystopian aspect of this book, but at it's heart this is a love story. There are plenty of swoon-worthy moments and it's not filled with endless pages of meaningless sex scenes.
    Khristine Hvam is one of my favorite narrators and she did an excellent job of capturing the heart and soul of Emma.
    I LOVED this book and can't recommend it enough.

    From the start I was instantly drawn into this story. Told in duel points of view, it was such a mesmerizing listen. The narrators did an excellent job of bringing this well written and unique story to life. It made me feel transported to another place and time and I became utterly lost within the words.

    These Broken Stars is a story of survival and love, set in a sci-fi world, with intriguing mysteries to solve, that will have you listening late into the night. There are so many twists and turns and “I didn’t see that coming” moments. It will have you guessing almost to the very end.

    This was such an unexpected gem of a book. 5 HUGE stars!!
