    When college student Olivia Townsend returned home to help her father run his business, she never imagined a complication like Cash and Nash Davenport - twin brothers different in so many ways but with one thing in common: an uncontrollable desire for Olivia. Cash is dangerous, sexy, and bad to the bone - a man whose kisses make Olivia forget she is playing with fire. Nash is successful, reliable, and intensely passionate - and already taken. But all it takes is one soft stroke to make Olivia forget he belongs to someone else. However, Olivia is in for a surprise....

    Story

    This book is entertaining. If you are looking for a steamy, sexy story than this should work just fine for you. I didn't really like the male narrator - but I love Kate Rudd. She is the reason I bought the book. The story is predictable, and cheesy at times, but entertaining.

    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!

    Story

    I liked this book, but I didn't love it. Reasons: It was too long and I got bored. There is one love scene in the entire book - so not steamy enough. I liked the characters, loved the narrator. It could have been a great book -- the beginning of their love story was entertaining...but the last 1/3 of the book was just disappointing.

    With his tight leather pants and a sharp edge that makes him dangerous, Jet Keller is every girl's rock and roll fantasy. But Ayden Cross is done walking on the wild side with bad boys. She doesn't want to give in to the heat she sees in Jet's dark, haunted eyes. She's afraid of getting burned from the sparks of their spontaneous combustion, even as his touch sets her on fire.

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    Story

    This story is well written and the narrator was great. I just had a hard time with the intensity. I didn't like the possessiveness and the neediness. It didn't feel like "love" really. It was obsession. It was too much love-hate, and it can be best described as UNHEALTHY. Not an uplifting love story. Lots of angst and fights and sex. I hated Gideon's thinking he owned Ava. The love scenes were very explicit and very intense and a lot of the time dirty. It was too intense for my taste.

    The story of Connor and Ellery Black continues in the last installment of the Forever Black Trilogy, Forever Us. You took Connor and Ellery's journey of love, courage, and strength as Ellery's illness threatened their future in Forever Black.

Join Connor and Ellery once again as they face the challenges of parenthood.

    Great ending to a great love story. I liked how it switched from Ellery to Connor's point of view in this book. I loved hearing about their challenges as new parents and newly weds…most stories end before you get what happens after they fall in love. You'll love this series.

    Forever You, is the highly anticipated sequel to USA Today’s best seller Forever Black. Connor Black’s life consisted of his company and his use of multiple women. There was never going to be love, relationships, or a fairy-tale life. Emotionally dead and damaged after a personal tragedy, Connor Black vowed never to love or fall in love with a woman - until Ellery Lane walked into his life by accident and changed him forever. He starts experiencing feelings and emotions he never felt before and finds himself being drawn into her world.

    When Ellery moved to New York with her boyfriend, she thought they’d live happily ever after in their small New York apartment. She never thought he’d pack his bags and leave because he “needed space”. With her newfound single status and fear of being alone, Ellery buries herself in her artwork and paintings until one night she helps a mysterious intoxicated stranger get home safely. Little did she know the mysterious stranger is none other than CEO and millionaire Connor Black.

    Great listen! I couldn't stop. I think I listened to the series in the span of four days. I fell in love with all of the characters in the story and I got so wrapped up in them. It was a total shocker when you find out why Ellery and her boyfriend really broke up. I wasn't expecting that turn of events. Ellery is one of my favorite characters. She is honest, free, and strong. Connor is intriguing and mysterious, and you want to keep reading to figure out what makes him tick.

    Story

    I have listened to all of the books out in this series. I kind of wished I would have stopped after book one. I guess it's saying something that I kept going, but I'm not sure still how I feel about it. I am not loving that she is an escort. It isn't a lifestyle I support or even understand really. I really don't like Sean's crazy fetish in the bedroom and it seriously weirds me out. It makes me not really like Sean, which ruins the story. It pushes the line way further than I like. It is also super irritating that each book is like 2 hours long. I didn't realize that when I bought the first one.

    I love the Rush and Blair story, it is my favorite of Abbi Glines. I was glad to see things get resolved with Rush and his crazy family, and more importantly, with Blair and her father. Blair and Rush's love is easy to lost in. Can't wait for the series to continue!

    Fun and fearless, Cora Lewis knows how to keep her tattooed "bad boy" friends at the Marked in line. But beneath all that flash and sass is a broken heart. Cora won't let herself get burned again. She's waiting to fall in love with the perfect man - a baggage-free, drama-free guy ready for commitment. Then she meets Rome Archer.

    I am loving this Marked Men series. I love her writing style and her characters. I feel like I am friends with all of them. This is Rome and Cora's story. I loved Cora in Rule and Jet's books so I am glad she gets to find her happily ever after. I liked how Rome wasn't what she was picturing as her forever guy, but she knew herself well enough to let the cards fall where they may. Rome is going through PTSD from the war, and she is his reason to get better. It's just a great story! I can't wait until the next book comes out.
