When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!

    "They say even the most damned man can be forgiven. I never believed that until the night Astrid opened her door to me and made this feral beast want to be human again. Made me want to love and be loved. But how can an ex-slave whose soul is owned by a Greek goddess ever dream of touching, let alone holding, a fiery star?"

    If you are looking for action with your romance Sherrilyn Kenyon never disappoints! This book does have a lot of action but a large majority of it takes place in a small cabin in the Alaskan wilderness. Zaric has had a very hard life. He has been a whipping boy, slave, and dark hunter in different phases of his life. He is very bitter and fear by all other people. I have always imagined his a wild animal. Like a panther that everyone fears because your not quite sure what it will do. This is Zaric. He just needs the right girl to open his emotions and let him see that he deserves love and can learn to love others again as well. I love this book, I read it many times and am now grateful to have it in my audio book collection as well.

    Meeting Jett was like lightning. Dangerous. Better left untouched. And better forgotten. But lightning always strikes twice. Brooke Stewart, a realtor in New York, doesn't do relationships. When she's sent to a remote estate to finalize a real estate deal, she discovers her new boss is none other than the guy she left naked in bed. Sexy, dangerously handsome, and arrogant Jett Mayfield attracts trouble, and women, like a lightning rod. But the night he meets Brooke he gets more than he bargained for.

    This book was really nothing special to me... It didn't have fabulous writing although it could have been made better with a different narrator. No depth and the sex was mediocre, no real passion, I wasn't impressed all around. The story doesn't really go into depth and it's too similar to so many other books on the market. I didn't fast forward so that I could really give it a chance but I say skip it and go with something else.

    I was in the mood of listening to a romance book with a ghost and this was just what I needed! I was very impressed with the story, scary yet hot. It doesn't have a lot of sex but just enough and the story is great! I'll be watching for more from this author!

    Sergeant Duncan O'Conner has seen it all before. Beautiful erotic dancer murdered at home, no suspect, no motive. But there's one clue: She's missing her heart. It's enough to make the hard-bitten Kansas City cop enlist the help of a necro - one of the dead-channeling freaks who live in the domed city of nearby Valhalla. It's a long shot, but desperate crimes call for desperate measures. Unlike the other "high-bloods" in Valhalla, Callie Brown considers her abilities a gift, not a curse. But when she reads the dancer's final thoughts, she senses a powerful presence blocking her vision. This is no ordinary homicide. This is the work of a legendary necromancer who controls souls.

    I don't have much time to write reviews but I couldn't miss telling you how much I loved this book! It may have been helped by the talented Mr. Frangione but this seemed so much like a book by JR Ward. THe story was great! I can't wait to see where it leads us! I don't want to give anything away but if you have histories like mine don't let this great read pass you by...

    OMG to tell you the truth I'm just confused. Why oh why does this book have such wonderful reviews?? This book is boring, boring and oh yea boring. I was so frustrated with the main girl! How is it possible that she is a college graduate? She needs a class in business law. I just wanted to kick her most of the time. If you like steamy romance (which this book does not have) with a great story line DO NOT waste your time or money on this book. Only one hour of the twenty held any real information 30 minutes at the first and 30 minutes at the end. Look at others in my reviews but DONT choose this one!

    He was the one man I couldn’t avoid. And the one man I couldn’t resist. Damien Stark could have his way with any woman. He was sexy, confident, and commanding: Anything he wanted, he got. And what he wanted was me. Our attraction was unmistakable, almost beyond control, but as much as I ached to be his, I feared the pressures of his demands. Submitting to Damien meant I had to bare the darkest truth about my past - and risk breaking us apart. But Damien was haunted, too. And as our passion came to obsess us both, his secrets threatened to destroy him - and us - forever.

    Story

    I resisted this book thinking that it would be so similar to "Fifty Shades of Grey" that it wouldn't hold my interest. I does flow in a similar fashion but it is a unique and interesting storyline. I was surprised to find, I liked it! It is a simple story, no real depth but what is referred to as a beach read. Difficult emotional subjects such as "cutting" and suggestions of abuse are mentioned but neither are done distastefully but instead in understandable ways. I recommend this book to those that like the fanfiction style books from the "Twilight" series. I'm not sure if that is what it is but if it is Twilight inspired it is one of the better runoff books available. Enjoy!

    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....

    This book goes hand in hand with "On Dublin Street". First of all, I loved Dublin Street but this book has absolutely blown me away! I was sucked right in and didn't want to stop listening until the end. There is so many emotions that this story brings up. I realized now that I too misjudged Johanna in the first book. Her story is heartbreaking and brings out the love and strength of family, no matter how imperfect.The love scenes were powerful, passionate and perfect (yes the triple P's). The narration is amazing!! Elle Newlands voices were perfection and that accent; YES I must make it to Scotland one day!! I highly highly recommend this book! I'm so grateful that I've had a chance to listen to it and can't wait to listen again. Perfect for driving in the car, housework/gardening, or even monotonous workplaces. No joke, if you like a great romance this book is for you!!

    Story

    I found this story to be a charming classic love story. The emotion and passion reminds me of Nicholas Sparks book The Notebook. The two main characters go through a journey of discovery together. Sometimes everyone needs to break away from the ordinary to discover the extraordinary. The love scenes are detailed but their are not many. Some one else claimed that this story is similar to "50 Shades of Gray" and "The Crossfire Series" but I disagree. The story is not as sexual or filled with angst but instead classic passionate love story. The narrator did a wonderful job and I was very happy with this book!

    Adam, Ethan, and Ryan aren't looking for women. They're looking for a woman. One woman they know will share their lives and their beds. They're losing hope they'll find her, that is until Adam discovers Holly lying in the snow just yards from their cabin. Adam knows she's the one the minute he holds her in his arms, and as soon as his brothers see her, they know it too. The only problem is convincing Holly of that fact - and protecting her from the danger of her past.

    I was SO excited to see this story has finally made it into audiobook format! This is classic Maya Banks and in my opinion this series is her best work!! Holly is nervous to accept the love and sexual affection of three men (and lets face it, who wouldn't) but she quickly learns that each of them are willing to do anything to make her happy. Very sexy series with lots of hot love scenes. Don't listen if anal play or multiple partners upsets you. All others enjoy!!

    Story

    I had been anxiously awaiting the arrive of this book for years! The story of love, betrayal, friendship and passion between Blaylock and Quinn has always been one of my favorites! I was not disappointed! This story was wonderful sometimes I was laughing, holding my breath, crossing my fingers or crying!! I don't want to give anything away but I will mention that the book does not entirely surround Quinn and Blay, other characters are shown in more depth and new ones introduced. The beginnings of their stories are great and I can't wait to see where they go. Hopefully Scar and Layla will be next I'm looking forward to how their relationship will be able to progress.

    One warning for those that haven't kept up with the entire series, their are A LOT of characters in this series and if you haven't read/listened to all of the books you may get a bit lost at times. JR Ward has to introduce us to new characters and keep us learning about ones we know little of. It can be a little overwhelming.
    Also, please do NOT listen if you have problems with homosexuality! For those that do not have a problem with homosexuality, please listen and give your love and support to the beautiful relationship of Quinn and Blaylock!!!!
