    Erin Coffey has been a nurse for years, but nothing's prepared her for the demands of her new position. Needing to move closer to her dysfunctional family, she takes a dangerous job at Larkhaven Psychiatric Hospital, where she quickly learns that she needs protection - and she meets the strong, over-confident coworker who's more than willing to provide it. Kelly Robak is the type of guy that Erin has sworn she'd never get involved with.

    Story

    I enjoyed this book immensely, I'm alway interested in stories and how they address mental illness. I liked how spunky Erin was, some of the scenes I was thinking OMG, I couldn't imagine she would do that! Or OK Erin stop talking... Please!! A thoroughly entertaining listen that definitely kept my attention. Oh yeah and hot sex!

    Story

    This was a decent story at a bargain price of less than 5 bucks, so you can't go too wrong... Well I take that back I've heard some got awful books at this price point, this one was passable but was literally a copycat of Romancing the Stone, an excellent book btw, with Marie taking on Joan's character and Ethan taking on Jack's, even had an Ralph type character, at the end I expected Eddy Grant to start singing Romancing the Stone!

    Cass lives a depressing life in a small trailer park in Eddington, Georgia, with her mother and abusive boyfriend Jackson. She works hard to barely make ends meet. But everything changes when Tucker White, the lead singer in the band Damaged, walks into her diner. He tries to show her that there is more to life than the hand she has been dealt, but Cass soon learns that being with Tucker will come at a high price.

    Story

    This was a good story I listened to it in one day! I really felt for Cass, but she has a serious messiah complex! Trying to save the world one addict at a time! This story is filled with sadness, hopelessness and Tucker the rocker with a heart of gold, who is hell bent on saving her. I like Teresa Mummert's books and this is one of her better ones. If you've got cash I'd buy this one and save my credit for a more expensive book.

    Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon's moved to New York City and is looking for excitement and passion without a lot of strings attached. So meeting the irresistible, sexy Brit at a dance club should have meant nothing more than a night's fun. But the manner - and speed - with which he melts her inhibitions turns him from a one-time hookup into her Beautiful Stranger.

    But then that's a very high standard to reach, the witty repartee of the first book seems to be missing here, but I will be buying the 3rd installment and hope for a return to the first books formula, not a bad buy, by any stretch of the imagination, just a let down from the first.

    This anthology of military erotic romance serves up a team of hot-blooded men (and women) from every branch of the military who serve their country and follow their hearts wherever they might be stationed. When the mission is done, the unit is recalled or the ship pulls into port, they set their sights on a new target - the pursuit of passion and love. In and out of uniform, stateside and abroad, these military warriors meet passion and danger head on.

    Sienna's dreams lie in California, but when she discovers her grandmother's Nashville home has been foreclosed, she has no other choice than to move back to Music City, where she comes face-to-face with the flawed, gorgeous man she never thought she'd see again - and who now holds the deed to her grandma's estate. Millionaire rock star Lucas Wolfe is just as surprised to find the outspoken redhead glaring at him from across a courtroom. He still can't get the night Sienna spent with him out of his mind, and the chemistry between them is as undeniable as ever.

    Story

    After reading the novella, which was excellent! I was excited to download this book as soon as it became available... I could've waited. It was just lukewarm and absolutely no chemistry between the main characters, and the build up was so tediously long I was thinking to myself it if I were her I'd be outta there long ago!

    When Emmy sleeps with Kyle after a night of drinking, she quickly tries to put the mistake behind her. When the duo is snowed in together over a long weekend, Emmy begins to discover there is more to Kyle than his mean-spirited behavior. Unfortunately, Kyle has a steady girlfriend he is unwilling to break up with. Moving on and putting that long weekend behind her, Emmy starts dating attorney Luke Kessler. Luke treats Emmy with kindness, reverence, and loves her unconditionally. He is everything Emmy should ever want in a man - sexy, intelligent, successful, and funny, with strong family bonds.

    Story

    Characters who are honestly flawed and human, you truly feel anger and sympathy for Emmy and total empathy for Luke. I have to say the inevitable comeuppance Emmy is dealt by Luke is riveting and left me shaken, all due to the writing of L D Davis and the spot on delivery by narrator Serena Daniels. Buy or credit you'll be happy with this purchase.

    I'm shocked! I really, really liked this story, it was entertaining, a little racy but definitely not over the top. I loved the main female character and I love Sean Crisden's narration much more so than Lucy Malone, he actually could have done the whole audio in my opinion. You won't be disappointed go ahead spend your credit!

    He didn't do short term relationships.... American ad exec, Thane Aleksander, doesn't date co-workers either-until business takes him to Ghana, West Africa, and he meets Naaki. Now he's at risk of breaking all the rules. Can he stop this headlong fall before it's too late? Until he met her! Naaki Tabika has a burning need to prove, to herself and to others, that she's more than wife and mother material. To do so, she's prepared to give up everything for her job. Meeting Thane, however, makes her want to get personal.

    If you can bridge the cultural divide of the writer, And I'm not talking about black and white, I'm talking about African versus American. It's a pretty sweet love story.

    Their romance was a modern-day fairy tale: handsome older millionaire falls for struggling young waitress. Robert swept Elsie off her feet - and into his bed - put a huge diamond on her finger and spirited her away in his private jet destined for happily-ever-after. Eight years later, Elsie Kolstadt realizes the clock has struck midnight. The five-star restaurants, exclusive address and exotic vacations can no longer make up for Robert's desire to control everything.

    Story

    OK overall I liked this story, good character development and interesting story line, It just seems like the ending was so rushed, and I hate when the main character does something so completely stupid and unnecessarily puts her life in jeopardy. I'm always concerned when I download a book with black characters that they're going to make the dialect so obvious and I hate that! Luckily this narrator doesn't make that mistake and that makes me very happy.
