    When Gabe Hamilton saw Mia Crestwell walk into the ballroom for his hotel’s grand opening, he knew he was going to hell for what he had planned. After all, Mia is his best friend’s little sister. Except she’s not so little anymore. And Gabe has waited a long time to act on his desires. Gabe has starred in Mia’s fantasies more than once, ever since she was a teenager with a huge crush on her brother’s best friend. So what if Gabe’s 14 years older? Mia knows he’s way out of her league, but her attraction has only grown stronger with time. She’s an adult now, and there’s no reason not to act on her most secret desires.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Different narrator, more likable characters, more complete back story.


    What was most disappointing about Maya Banks’s story?

    The main characters are not likable at all. Gabe comes off as a cold hearted, over controlling Dom. I lost respect for Mia that she would enter into a relationship with Gabe because I could not find anything redeeming about him. This is basically a bad knock off of 50 Shades of Grey.


    What didn’t you like about Adam Paul’s performance?

    The narrator is awful, his female voices sound mocking, and his delivery is monotone.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    I don't think after listening to this book, I will purchase the other 2.

    When love sneaks up on you, shoot for the heart. Billy Bradford has a secret, and it's bigger than the fact that he's an assassin. When Tucker Hayes, Billy's "straight" best friend, is injured on a mission, Billy acts in haste, kissing Tucker. Shocked by the act, Tucker runs. But desire is stronger than convictions, leading Tucker to hunt down Billy. The other guys on the ranch are oblivious to Tucker and Billy's actions as they investigate a new target. Grant Stovall is hung up on his ex, but Roger Burk, their new operative, catches his attention and one small touch isn't enough.

    What would have made Colorado Wild better?

    A different narrator


    Would you be willing to try another book from Sara York? Why or why not?

    Not if it is the same narrator


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The voices he used gave you the impression of old men..


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The story was not bad, but I could not finish the book because the narrator was so terrible.
