    A decade ago, the Marquess of Bourne was cast from society with nothing but his title. Now a partner in London's most exclusive gaming hell, the cold, ruthless Bourne will do whatever it takes to regain his inheritance - including marrying perfect, proper Lady Penelope Marbury. A broken engagement and years of disappointing courtships have left Penelope with little interest in a quiet, comfortable marriage, and a longing for something more. How lucky that her new husband has access to an unexplored world of pleasures.

    I bought this book primarily because of the narrator...Rosalyn Landor.What surprised me was the author,i found this a light read. Easy to follow. It was funny at times and the characters were great. I can't wait for the next book on Cross. I hope Landor will pick up from where she left of!

    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.

    Would you try another book from Kristen Ashley and/or Susannah Jones?

    I liked SJ. She is not my number one but I can say she is within my top 10 narrators. This is my second KA book, and I am not looking to try a third anytime soon which is a shame because she has potential!


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Lee came off as a jerk. Indie came off as a child.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Hank, Indie and the Kevster and a whole lot of pot plants.


    Did Rock Chick inspire you to do anything?

    Nope. Just a book that went from great to boring.


    Any additional comments?

    Careful, this is a very girly-type book with one too many OMG's and Holy sh* sh* sh*. The female characters will make you want to say "are you kidding me!" Their antics started of as funny then turned to annoying. The guys all have issues and seem very detached and quite frankly jerks.

    Em has lived her entire life in the shadow of the Reapers. Her overprotective father, Picnic, is the club's president. The last time she had a boyfriend, Picnic shot him. Now the men in her life are far more interested in keeping her daddy happy than showing her a good time. Then she meets a handsome stranger - a man who isn't afraid to treat her like a real woman. One who isn't afraid of her father. His name is Liam, and he's The One. Or so she thinks.

    What did you love best about Devil's Game?

    The Reapers Series keeps growing and the characters keep getting better and better! I must say every book is different.


    What other book might you compare Devil's Game to and why?

    To me each author is different and can't really compare books. I will say though that JW makes bikers so darn attractive. They are flawed but they are loyal.


    What about Tatiana Sokolov and Todd Haberkorn ’s performance did you like?

    I love this duo. They work together even though their narrations are different it does not take away from the story.


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

    Come-hither


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth my credit. Looking forward to the next book!

    I found an envelope in the mail. No return address. My name on the front, my address. Inside was a check, made out to me, in the amount of 10 thousand dollars. Enough to pay the bills and leave me some left over to live on until I found a job. Enough to let me focus on classes. There was no name on the check, just "VRI Inc.", and a post office box address for somewhere in the city. No hint of identity or reason for the check or anything. No mention of repayment, interest, nothing...except a single word, on the notes line: "You." Just those three letters.

    NEW NAME says: "Whew....that was....WOW!"

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    This book was way over the top. The female lead throws all her values out the door just because of a hot billionaire and in just 1-2 days!!, please give me a break. For someone meant to be level-headed and focused not highly likely. Speaking of hot billionaire, what a joke! This book was more about sex that anything else. It just did not work. So I guess if something erotic is what you are looking for then this might work for you.


    What could Jasinda Wilder have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Focus more on building realistic and likable characters.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Summer Roberts and Tyler Donne ?

    I am on the border with Summer. She isn't the worst narrator out there but I wouldn't jump at listening to her any time soon. Unfortunately, I did not make it to the end of this book, can't comment on Tyler's narration.


    What character would you cut from Alpha?

    All characters! Harris was more vicious than macho, I mean he killed people just because his employer told him so. Valentine was so weird, I just don't see how any female would not think "serial killer" esp after learning he has been watching and stalking you for years! Kyrie, well I am all for going after love but she seemed very superficial and weak. Giving in so easily especially after the author builds her up to be this down-on-her-luck level headed female made me picture her as weak and full of herself!


    Any additional comments?

    I would not waste a credit on this.

    Meet Shane Baxter. Sexy, dark, and dangerous, Bax isn't just from the wrong side of the tracks, he is the wrong side of the tracks. A criminal, a thug, and a brawler, he was the master of bad choices, until one such choice landed him in prison for five years. Now Bax is out and looking for answers, and he doesn't care what he has to do or who he has to hurt to get them. But there's a new player in the game, and she's much too innocent, much too soft…and standing directly in his way.

    What did you love best about Better When He's Bad?

    Shane! Being bad was really hot, sexy, edgy and everything in between!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Better When He's Bad?

    When Shane was willing to kill himself for Dov. That was a whole level of crazy in love!


    What about Mia Barron and Leland King ’s performance did you like?

    Love the performance, the duo work great together. The narrated this story so well, I hope they keep the pair for all books on this series!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Well finding out who Shane's father was, but as I thought about what had happened since the beginning it made sense. It was a roller coaster sort of book with ups and downs that got you hooked from start to finish.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved the Marked Men series, but there is a new series that could top it and it starts with this book!. I don't know why I ever hesitated to try this book. Making bad so bad that it tempted good and won the fight, well that takes talent and JC definitely has a way with words! This is high on my list of books to recommend to anyone looking for and intense, sexy and captivating story of 2 people's battle to find just a little love in their lives.

    Kylie Scott returns with the highly anticipated followup to international best seller LICK Mal Ericson, drummer for the world famous rock band Stage Dive, needs to clean up his image fast - at least for a little while. 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.

    To me Mal was this center of energy that only Anne could focus. While it is tempting to run away in Mal's carefree, consequences be damned personality; Anne was more of the think first before you leap type of girl. These two fit perfectly. From the stalker moment Mal moved himself in, to the goofy moment they jumped up and down resulting in breaking the bed to the sad moment they both gave in and finally shared their darkest secrets. I loved this book enough to say that yes it is worth a credit. K.S. has yet to disappoint me. I love Andi and the narrator. I hope she keeps narrating all the books in this series.

    Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this. Evelyn Thomas' plans for celebrating her 21st birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.One thing is certain, being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.

    Within the first 40 minutes of this audio I was chuckling and laughing hard. Needless to say I kept going for the entire book. Very few authors get me so caught up in a book that I just want more so this was a nice bonus. I shall definitely be searching for more Kylie Scott books. I think Andi Arndt was perfect for this book. The combination of author and narrator is a big deal for me. I would rather read text than listen to a horrible narration. I will definitely be trying other books narrated by Andie Arndt as well. I am sure this will be a book I can listen to over again on those days when I can't find anything I like on audible!

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.

It was hot, fun, emotional, crazy, eye-rolling, annoying all wrapped up in one. J.C. is first becoming one of my go-to authors. I love how she makes the mid west so attractive. I loved the epilogue, all geared up for the next book!

    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.

    I really liked Jet and Ayden in book 1 so of course I dashed to purchase this book. The book is okay but not as good as the the first book. My biggest issue was the narration, Cal Wembly is a good narrator but not for the role of Jet. He sounds more cow-boyish than rocker and also more soft mannered than one with anger issues. Although Callie did try to pull off the KY accent it would have been better with someone who had it nailed down. In the end, the ups and downs of dealing with a bad boy are all present in this book. The fact that Ayden could match Jet on being bad was entertaining. I would still recommend the book. The series is delightful.

    Shaw Landon loved Rule Archer from the moment she laid eyes on him. Rule is everything a straight-A pre-med student like Shaw shouldn't want - and the only person she's never tried to please. She isn't afraid of his scary piercings and tattoos or his wild attitude. Though she knows that Rule is wrong for her, her heart just won't listen.

    I have never been a big fan of bad boys but something about this book kept pulling me in. I finally caved, having nothing better to read and bought it from my mile long wish list. Oh boy well, was I pleasantly surprised. This bad boy was bad to the end but at least he tried; making him more real than a fantasy. I never thought piercings and body tattoo would be so sexy but this book made me think just maybe I should keep my mind open (don't judge a book by its cover). I loved the narration, the different voices worked for this book. I like this so much I was done in one day. In my opinion worth my credit.

    Eight years ago, Sophie gave her heart - and her virginity - to Zach Barrett on a night that couldn't have been less romantic or more embarrassing. Zach's stepbrother, a steely-muscled, tattooed biker named Ruger, caught them in the act, getting a peep show of Sophie he's never forgotten. She may have lost her dignity that fateful night, but Sophie also gained something precious - her son Noah. Unfortunately, Zach's a deadbeat dad, leaving Ruger as Noah's only male role model. When he discovers Sophie and his nephew living in near poverty, Ruger takes matters into his own hands.

    I loved this book, although at first I was hesitant because it was narrated by 2 people. They both did a splendid job! There is nothing nice about this book, not much of hearts and flowers so if you are thinking of a traditional romance, you are in the wrong section of books! I really enjoyed this book from start to finish. It is not only funny and entertaining but the author wrote a book that is really close to reality. Nothing wrong with a little scary in my opinion! Looking forward to the next book!
