    She could save the world - or destroy it. Sixteen-year-old Evangeline 'Evie' Greene leads a charmed life, until she begins experiencing horrifying hallucinations. When an apocalyptic event decimates her Louisiana hometown, Evie realizes her hallucinations were actually visions of the future - and they're still happening. Fighting for her life and desperate for answers, she must turn to her wrong-side-of-the-bayou classmate: Jack Deveaux. But she can't do either alone.

    Story

    This was a great listen... I couldn't stop listening to it. I love Emma Galvin too as the narrator. She is one of my favorites. I loved how the heroin in the book starts out weak and how she grows and learns as the story unwinds, and I can tell that this is just the start of her progression. I can't wait until the next book comes out- seriously mad I have to wait. I love Jack's character as well. It is sort of frustrating that the story is only read from Evangeline's perspective and it is maddening to not know what Jack is actually thinking/feeling vs. what Evie thinks he is, but that is part of the fun too. I love a guy character with a lot of layers. It has a interesting story line and I am hooked.

    One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him. 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.

    The follow-up to the runaway bestsellers On Dublin Street and Down London Road. Despite her outgoing demeanor, Olivia is painfully insecure around the opposite sex - usually, she can't get up the nerve to approach guys she's interested in. But moving to Edinburgh has given her a new start, and, after she develops a crush on a sexy postgrad, she decides it's time to push past her fears and go after what she wants. Nate Sawyer is a gorgeous player who never commits, but to his close friends, he's as loyal as they come.

    I love this series. This is Liv and Nate's story ... And it was a different twist on a friendship turned romance. I love Nate. The writing is witty and entertaining, characters are relatable and interesting. The only thing I wish would have been better is the narrator. Her version of the Scottish accents was terrible. But I still wholeheartedly recommend this book!

    Indy Savage is a former wild child (okay, maybe not so "former") and current used-bookstore owner. Lee Nightingale is a former bad boy and now runs a private investigation service. Toss together a quiet barista with a not-so-lawful side-business, a crazy Vietnam Vet, a pothead, a drag queen, family and friends who will not mind their own business, a few stun guns, and a bag of diamonds, and mix them all up with some shootings, a high-speed chase and car bombs exploding, then hang on for your first wild Rock Chick ride.

    Story

    I'm still on the fence. I didn't love it, but I liked it. If you like her style of writing then I'm sure you'll enjoy this book. Some things that made it a "like" instead of "love" are...main character is a bit annoying, story is a bit unrealistic, story lacked the sexual tension that keeps you wanting more. Good things... It's light, funny at times, and an easy listen.

    Johanna Walker is used to taking charge. But she’s about to meet someone who will make her lose control....

    It has always been up to Johanna to care for her family, particularly her younger brother, Cole. With an absent father and a useless mother, she’s been making decisions based on what’s best for Cole for as long as she can remember. She even determines what men to date by how much they can provide for her brother and her, not on whatever sparks may - or may not - fly. But with Cameron MacCabe, the attraction is undeniable....

    Samantha Young is becoming a fave of mine. I have loved all her books. When I finished On Dublin Street I didn't move onto this one right away because I didn't think I cared enough about Joss and Brayden's supporting cast to keep listening, but I'm glad I came back and finished the series. Jo and Cam I think are my favorite in the series...I loved how they got a rough start and were friends before it went further. I loved how honest Cam was from the start and wasn't afraid to tell Jo how he cared for her. Their chemistry and sexual tension is so good! I quickly became engrossed with this series and I love all of the characters and getting updates on Joss and Brayden and Ellie and Adam is a plus too.

Having a good girl on his arm should do the job just fine. Mal doesn’t plan on this temporary fix becoming permanent, but he didn’t count on finding the one right girl.

She doesn’t need a guy making waves in her calm, serene life - especially when he’s the unforgettable hottie who nearly destroyed her in high school. Dark, brooding Nash Donovan might not remember her or the terrible pain he caused. But he turned her world upside down…and now he’s trying to do it again.

    I love this series. This is Nash and Saint's love story. I related to Saint and her insecurities and really appreciated the way Nash lifted her up and helped her see herself through his eyes. All of the books in this series are so good! I like that you don't have to wait the entire book for them to finally pull their heads out and get together. I love the relationship they all have with their friends and how they see their friends as family. Some other series I've read where the star characters rotate from friend to friend... It seems like it's the same story over and over....but each of the love stories in this series are unique and true to the characters. We'll done Jay. Can't wait for Rowdy's story.

    At 22 years old, Sydney has a great life: She’s in college; working a steady job; in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter; and rooming with her best friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers Hunter's cheating on her - and she is left trying to decide what to do next. Sydney becomes captivated by Ridge, her mysterious neighbor. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to his playing his guitar every day out on his balcony. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either.

    Story

    I was so excited for another book by Colleen. I enjoy her writing style and her character development. This love story was unique and I really liked how much the book made me think about love in real life. I do think it is possible to love two people at one time, and it was great to read how Ridge and Sidney went through falling in love but knowing they shouldn't and their efforts to fight it in order to not hurt Maggie. I loved how honest Maggie was with herself and Ridge and how they handled their relationship and their future in such a mature way. I loved how honest Ridge was with Sidney and Maggie the entire time. It was refreshing to have the male character actually confess his true feelings and be a man about it. Love and life is complicated and messy and sometimes it isn't possible to not hurt others along the way, even if you don't want or mean to. Such a good listen!
