    Stressed out ad-exec Dakota wandered into Catamount Outfitters in search of a guide for a wilderness excursion. She didn't expect to be greeted by not one but five of the most ruggedly delicious-looking men she'd ever seen... not to mention a live cougar guarding the shop!

    Story

    I was so into this story, I didn't want it to end. I've had debates with friends who think the narrator's voice wasn't right for the story - they found it annoying - but I liked it... though I felt like I should warn you that you might not like it. The story itself is unique - different from all the other shifter books on the market today. My full review of the book is available online.

    With panic and intolerance spreading and streets becoming littered with the Order's propaganda, hostility between Humans and Therians grows daily. Dex and Sloane, along with the rest of the team, are determined to take down the Order and restore peace, not to mention settle a personal score. But the deeper the team investigates the bombings, the more they believe there's a more sinister motive than a desire to shed blood and spread chaos.

    I want more, and more, and more... this series is like one of those addictive tv series that you wait all week for and then as soon as its over, you count down until the next week. In a mishmash of romantic comedy and superhero manga, the books will hook any reader that gets through the world building details in book one. With book two, the action steps up and the characters shine even brighter. You've gotta love the way the narrator tells this story.

    This series has a new fan in me!

    After Quinn O'Malley loses his partner of ten years, Aaron, to cancer, he withdraws from everything. In a single tragic moment, he goes from an artist with a loving partner and a future to an uninspired comic book store owner who barely exists. He hides behind a shield of grief, refusing to let Aaron go. He feels guilty for even trying to imagine a life apart from what he'd had. The charming party planner Quinn's best friend insists he meet on a blind date isn't someone he's ready for.

    Story

    Filled with the angst of overcoming loss and moving on through life, this love story clutched at my heart. Quinn struggled after the loss of his longtime partner but when he meets Brady, he's finally tempted to find happiness. The author smoothly juggled both love stories so that readers felt the connection between Quinn and Aaron as well as his new love for Brady. There was the perfect blend of reflection back on Aaron and Quinn's hopefulness for a bright future with Brady. The secondary characters, friends and family, added dimension to the men and rounded out the story.

    I enjoyed this story as an audiobook. The narrator used his voice to express the emotions behind the words. At one point, it was almost as if he was sighing and crying along with me as I listened. This highly emotional, angst-filled story is a great listen.

    When homicide detective Dexter J. Daley’s testimony helps send his partner away for murder, the consequences - and the media frenzy - aren’t far behind. He soon finds himself sans boyfriend, sans friends, and, after an unpleasant encounter in a parking garage after the trial, he’s lucky he doesn’t find himself sans teeth. Dex fears he’ll get transferred from the Human Police Force’s Sixth Precinct, or worse, get dismissed.

    Story

    A little bit romance, a little bit comic book/ superheroes, and a pinch of the Agents of Shields bundled into an exciting and suspenseful story. Despite moments when there seemed to be too much detail on the training/ fighting thing which really isn't for me, the plot was tightly written. The characters were quite unique, particularly Dex. The science fiction feel of a world with an alternate breed of beings added to the complexity and created a world unlike any other I had previously read.

    Listening to the book on audio was a nice alternative but sometimes proved difficult in pulling in all the details. I slowed it down and was careful to listen carefully. This is not a story you can miss anything! Everything that happens has a point and the narrator brings in the emotion -tension and passion- of the story.

    It was impossible not to fall for these characters. With a unique plot, and the MC being more in the background than in other MC romances, this book was a refreshing read.

    There were some production/ editing issues that need to be cleaned up and hopefully, the author and narrator get that fixed before book two. I'm looking forward to more in the series.

    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.

    Crownover builds the story, slowly giving the details as Bax uncovers the truth and finds his brand of HEA with Dovie. In audiobook, the narrator gives a spot-on performance in relaying the emotion and the danger. I'm so glad I listened to this on audio because I didn't want to put it down once I started. Instead, I popped in my ear buds and listened while I cooked and while I weeded the garden.

    Crownover stepped it up with Better When He’s Bad. From the intensity of their world to the angst between the characters, this book takes readers into a world where it just might be good to be bad.

    Drew McAuliffe has lived in the small town of Rock Bay most of his adult life. He'd like to be happy, but not at the cost of having his private life under his nosy neighbors' microscope, so he keeps his bisexuality under wraps. After a messy breakup that caused him to pack up and move to Astoria, on the Oregon coast, Mason Anderson decides to avoid drama of the romantic kind. All he wants is to start over - alone...

    Story

    Like going home to visit old friends, Letting Go takes readers back to Rock Bay and re-acquaints us with the characters from book one. They are fun and sweet and full of personality, each bringing a uniqueness to the book. With the beginning of the book focused on the main character's past -Drew and Mason- it started quite slowly. If their background could've been integrated within the present-day story, the flow might've been smoother but regardless, there was so much to love about the characters. Drew and Mason's love story was sweet - their obstacles never too much for them to overcome. I enjoyed listening to the narrator bring life to the author's words, and am eager to read about more of the characters from Rock Bay.

    Justin Foster has 19 years of nothing but trouble behind him. After escaping his abusive father, he finds himself in Rock Bay, Washington, with his cousin Travis. Justin is bruised and has a hard time trusting, but with the help of his family and the small town, he might be able to heal. Logan O'Brien is also new in town, hoping he can finally get away from his past and the memories of the girlfriend who shattered his heart. It doesn't take him long to realize Rock Bay can be more than safe harbor: It can also be home.

    Story

    This is the third book in the Rock Bay series and I've listened to each one on audio. The stories of the men and their friends have each been sweet and written in O'Shea's tender telling. The narrator was a good choice to convey the emotions packed into the stories. I couldn't help but connect with the characters, especially these two men. Logan has been a secondary character since book one, and it was wonderful to see him find his HEA. Justin, though just introduced to us, melded right into the group of friends that I now feel I know - and like.

    This book -heck, the entire series- is a good read for the lighter, sweeter summer months.

    Thanks to the MTV Video Music Awards, Damaged is suddenly famous. But as their star rises, drummer Eric begins to spiral out of control. Haunted by the tragic events of his childhood, he gets into fights after gigs and flies off the handle when the paparazzi approach. Drinking numbs the pain - but his behavior could cost him his rock star dreams.

    Story

    This might be my favorite book in the series. I like Eric and Sarah more than Tucker and Cass. There's still all that drama and angst, sex and music but these two characters are easier to invest in. Although Eric and Sarah’s childhood stories broke my heart, their possibility of an HEA filled me with hope. There was an undeniable connection that makes readers know the characters are right for one another. The fact that everyone around them knew they were in love before Eric and Sarah admitted it themselves adds a fun element to the story.

    Though a few lighter moments were sprinkled in, Eric and Sarah's story is not light. It's dark, brooding and angst-filled. But the ending makes all those darker moments worth the read.
