    A long string of tragic loves haunts Viscount Benedick Francis Alistair Rohan. Cool and cynical, he's weary of life's fickle games and wants a prim and proper wife he can ignore while indulging his sensual appetites. Lady Melisande Carstairs is nothing less than a tornado storming into Benedick's measured life. Possessed of boundless energy and the soul of a reformer, Melisande always conquers, whether it's saving the souls of soiled doves or seducing the man she's inconveniently fallen for.

    I had listened to Susan's narration once and was sorely disappointed with her performance on that book...I am glad to say she did a far better job with this series...it helps that this was a different kind of series based on generations.....I think the whole summoning the devil and all that was taking it to a different turn but it was a strong enjoyable and entertaining series.

    The worldwide phenomenon continues as Eva and Gideon face the demons of their pasts and accept the consequences of their obsessive desires.... From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I also saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside - so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat. No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I’d been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become.

    I was a bit hesitant when I started this listen, the reviews were less that stellar but I bought it anyway.

    I am really invested in Gideon and Eva, love can make people do crazy things.... and love can heal some wounds that cut deep.. This was really about Gideon's demons and Eva's journey to fight to heal his demons... Have to say the sex was a bit much in this book but not enough to take away from the story...

    I like how the author did not make marriage the definition of HEA! That the battle is still going... This book is written as a daily account verses jumping through month of time....which works at least for me!

    There are still many unanswered questions...If Corinne was desperately in love with Gideon, why did she leave? What has her spinning out of control.. What about Bret? what does he have up his sleeve... Gideon's family is still a mystery... and what is Gideon's mother hiding? and who covered up Gideon's 'dramatic act of love' for Eva? ohh.. and Cary's love triangle...WTF was that?....Yep many, many question left unanswered...

    Looking forward to the remaining 2 or 3 books... I have never been a fan of slow developing books.. but I must admit why would I want this to end when at every turn something new and significant pops up and draws me back in! I actually enjoy the pace of this book.. Its my very own sort of soap opera!

    I would say definitely worth my credit, however, many should be aware this series has I think 5 or 6 books which can be a tough listen for many people!

    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

    **Stop reading, if you have listened to Book 1 then....just skip to the last statement***

    I was a bit frustrated by this book... but i think that was the idea! Even so, I loved every minute of it...

    Picking up from Book 1, Gideon and Eva still try to navigate the rough road of their relationship. Gideon and his constant need to control Eva didn't sit well with me... I loved the Vegas moment when Gideon put a female bodyguard on Eva and kept every known man from her and as her revenge she has a sumo bodyguard hired for Gideon and his job was to keep EVERY woman 3 feet away from Gideon while he was WORKING ....

    Once again putting 2 messed up people together is sometimes not a good idea... as was evident when during one mutual happening episode, Gideon almost hurts Eva while they are sleeping!

    I am looking forward to the love triangle between Evan, Gideon and Bret to get juicy...Bret is not going away! Good things to look forward to in book 3.

    Once again Cary has me wondering what his story is and why he is determined to destroy his perfect relationship with Trey!

    I always thought if a man stated he would kill for me... it would be the sexiest thing with tons of fuzzy feelings.. and my oh my Gideon's words are crude, deep, hot and all things male I can imagine...But the ending had me thinking 'he did what?....like NOOOO...like seriously...and she said what? Run Eva... just RUN!'

    At the end we close with Gideon and Eva having learnt to trust each other and Gideon admiting that he loves Eva after sharing a huge part of his past... Now what? looking forward to Book 3...Dealing with the aftermath of what Gideon did... Gideon's ex and her meddling... his family... the Damn doctor....and Bret!

    Yes, Yes, YES!! Worth a credit, but I bought this for $10..Either way just buy the book!

    "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."

    The idea of dom/sub takes on an entirely new meaning in this book.

    Gideon and Eva both have the same type demons... Only Eva is more open to communicating about her past than Gideon is... At the end on this Book, Gideon is still a mystery...

    When 2 damaged people know that they really should not be together... but can't keep away from each other... It makes the story more bitter-sweet. An emotional roller-coaster that had me rooting for the success of this bad-idea mistake.

    I loved Cary, and would really love to know his story..

    The narration is marvelous and Jill was a perfect choice for this hot, sexy and captivating read!

    Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.

    From the moment I began reading this book, I was laughing so hard iI forgot everything around me!

    Clive, the cat was epic... His love for Purina was epic...and loved his thoughts at the end! Can't wait for the next book and his views about "his people"

    OK. Enough about the cat! This was a sweet romance!

    I was utterly entertained by Caroline and her quest for 'O' only to find that the one person who could get her rocks off was her next door neighbor aptly named 'wallbanger'

    Simon on the other hand, having never been in a normal relationship because of his career finds that banging his 'harem' doesn't do it for him anymore... all he wants is Caroline.

    A huge part of the book is comical tales as the two tiptoe around each other... and when they finally get on the same page... they play games..winding them up all for the promise of 'delayed gratification!'

    The secondary characters were amazing, the antics and loves stories were touching and a nice bonus...

    Can't wait to see what Caroline and Simon do in the next book!

    I would say definitely worth a credit.

    Words just can't describe this book enough. Though I felt the romance was a bit rushed, it is definitely a different kind of messed up love. This is not a book for anyone looking for a light book filled with laughter and romance and all. This is mostly a very dark book in my opinion that makes you keep at it even when you really feel like you should stop.

    I wouldn't say use a credit on this... if fact I actually bought it for $3 and change...It was a short entertaining read to pass time during a flight...

    Marie doesn't need a complication like Horse. The massive, tattooed, badass biker who shows up at her brother's house one afternoon doesn't agree. He wants Marie on his bike and in his bed. Now. But Marie just left her abusive jerk of an ex-husband and she's not looking for a new man. Especially one like Horse - she doesn't know his real name or where he lives, she's ninety percent certain he's a criminal and that the "business" he talks with her brother isn't website design.

    Wow! Mitch...I don't even know where to start. A cop who has had a thing for his closed up neighbor Mara and when he finally gets an in, boy does he bust that door WIDE open!

    In Mara world, everything has it place and Mitch is definitely out her zone... for 4 years every time she sees him, she runs far away. When Mitch finally pushes for answers she does the one thing she can to stop him from asking questions. She kisses him. HOT! that's all I can say about that kiss. After that there is no way Mitch is not fighting for this woman. He takes her as she is and all her baggage. Mara has some pretty heavy stuff in her past but he take it in stride, laying out how things are going to be. He guides her out to Mara world and into the real world!

    I loved listening to past characters, Elvira is always a treat. Hawk and all his macho self has Mara acting a full. And of course Tack..oh, Tack..

    I am sad that Tack's HEA is the end of the dream series but I definitely will have no problem going back time after time!

    Another deep feel good fight for love!

    I wasn't sure what to expect from Jimmy's story... I mean from the time he messed with Eve in book 1, I was primed to hate him...

    That was before we met Lena. She is everything good to Jimmy's everything bad. I think this was a fitting for Jimmy. He had to deal with his demons before we could believe he was worth the fight! He messed up a few times, he threw fits a few times and he was funny as hell trying to push Lena to date but doing everything to destroy said dates! He refused to let her go. He fought his feelings at every turn. Finally Lena was fed up and heartbroken and walked away. Jimmy did what he always does... only this time he stopped and turned around to get what was his and what he wanted.

    This was a healing book, not only for Jimmy but Jimmy and his brother. Jimmy and Eve. Jimmy and the rest of the band. Most of all we learnt there was more to Jimmy then what we expected!

    Can't wait for Ben's story. I have a feeling it's all about forbidden love! Yum!~

His muscular physique makes men cower before him and women lose their minds with desire. Anna Cortez is fresh out of college and naïve to the harsh realities of the real world. Tired of living under the thumb of her conservative family, she defies them when she accepts a job as the assistant to wrestling's most notorious bad boy.

    Story

    hmmmm...Where to start....I guess if you haven't already guessed it, based on other reviews let me spell this out THIS BOOK WILL LEAVE YOU HANGING! Now, normally this wouldn't be a big deal, except Book 2 is not due to be released until later this year (yep, i checked the author's website!)

    The first thing I loved about this book is it's a 2-sided story. As the listener, we get to see things from Ana's view and X's view. The Author did a fantastic job with transitioning from Ana to X.

    Ana is a sweet, innocent & sheltered 21 yr old who has had enough of the confines of the world she knows. She runs away for a "fresh start".. While this is what we come to know about her, I have a feeling there is still more and maybe Ana might be just as damaged as X in a different sort of way!

    X is an entertainment wrester, with a body, attitude and manor to match. X is also very broken...We get a taste of just how broken in this book, almost as though this is the least of X's demons and more is yet to come!

    When fate puts Ana and X together, the journey that they take in a few weeks left me craving more. There are funny moments, there are heart pumping moments and sad moments. This is a hot, sexy, funny, sweet & sour moment type book. The author pulls you in from the start to finish and of course at the end you want to know what now?

    I have never listened to a book narrated by Alexandria but She was amazing. She maintained a clear tone of voice, distinct voices for each character and good voice fluctuation. She nailed her conversational lines. She did not sound like she had a cold or breathing as she narrated. She is one I will have no hesitation listening to in other books.

    I have loved Sean Crisden's narration from prior books and knew he would be great as always. He has a smooth voice, though not the best female voice but close enough. His narration always takes me where i need to go without fail.

    This is not an MMA book, think more like WWE....

    The bottom line: If you want the roller coaster relationship, the amazing chemistry and a book that will reel you in from start to finish, then THIS IS IT! Ana sweets will have un in aww.... and X is definitely gonna give it to ya!

    Story

    My definition of a rocky relationship just got altered! When a 30+ yr old man is making out with a 16 yr old girl in reality there would be an uproar to castrate him!!! When a 5 yr old decides she is in love with a 20+yr old man, what are we supposed to say? Throw in a VERY psychotic adopted brother- who mind you has an outstanding hit on you in the event he dies because he " can't sleep without you" and a dad named preacher, a best friend who is a slut and her husband who is a classic rich spoilt brat and 2 motorcycle clubs and this is UNDENIABLY on the list of the most messed up book!

    As revolting, heartbreaking and shocking as this book was' it was pure entertainment. When you think you know what coming, you don't! When you think you really should stop, you can't! At the end of this book you are left thinking did i just listen to the entire book? And if you are like me... you are ready for book 2 and book 3!

    Tatiana's narration is GOOOOOD! I have many books narrated by her but she is one of those narrators that you either like or flat out don't. She keeps the same pace from start to finish. She talk as though she were the characters themselves. I love her!

    This is my first MS book and she has made it to my 'go-to' authors. I look forward to other book after this series! I would love to get in her mind, just to know how she so easily she puts her vision on paper and makes bad things so entertaining to listen to!
