    Barrel racer Celia Lawson knows better than to tangle with bull rider Kyle Gilchrist. The sexy cowboy's love 'em and leave 'em ways have earned him a reputation on the rodeo circuit, and he's always seen her as his best friend's kid sister. But one wild tequila-fueled night later, and Celia wakes up to find out she's gotten herself hitched - to the one man she never should have married! When Celia insists on an annulment, Kyle has no good reason to say no - except he isn't ready to let go of his new bride. Especially not after their incredible wedding night.

    this was a cute book. The characters did everything i wanted them to do, which is rare in romance novels. I want the man to be a bit cave manish, but sweet and honest. I want the woman to be willing but not weak and just a little snarky. I enjoyed this book and will reread it in the future. I did not read the other books in the series and probably will not since they were discussed in this book.

    College is supposed to be a time of discovery, but Danielle Vaughn never imagined it would be like this: Heightened senses, supernatural powers, and a sudden craving for human blood. Dani is a demi-vamp, the daughter of a human psychic and a vampire noble, a living secret kept hidden for 21 years. As Dani’s heritage manifests itself, her thirst for blood is matched only by her hunger for Chase Diedrick.

    i LOVED this book! some of the characters actions were rediculous and juvinile, but not enough to turn me off. This book was the perfect mixture of adult, contemporary, and paranormal romance. The main characters actions were age appropriate and they found themselves in plausible situations. I can' t wait for book 2!

    This book was luke warm for me, it is meant for YA(16-25 yrs), has religious overtones, and was not scifi at all. The synopsis had me excited for a fast paced thrilling romance, the storyline moves so slow. There was little excitement, friend zone romance, and the scifi part gets cool at the very end. By then you realize you have forced yourself to finish the book and that's 10 hrs you'll never get back. I'm not going to get the second book and since this was clearly miss categorized, I plan on getting a refund.

    As much as I loved the first 2 books, this was one story that didn't need to be written. Newly weds constantly fight over stupid nonissues and then make up with sex, it was 15 hours of face palming. I liked the story, it wrapped up lots of the side story lines.

    The synopsis of this book is deceiving. Here's what it's really about: sexual abuse, mental abuse, really poor personal choices, poor communication skill. Pretty much being the biggest doormat EVER! I hated the first 5 chapters, but I continued to listen, waiting for the story line promised. Huge disappointment! And then you are gonna just end the book hoping I'll buy the next one. Keep hoping, I can't believe this rubbish was published. White Trash Beautiful was better than this book and that one was seriously depressing. Don't waste you time or money on this one.

    For the five rock gods of Sole Regret, finding love is easy, keeping it is hard. This anthology contains the first three novellas in the One Night with Sole Regret series. In Try Me, Sole Regret's crafty drummer, Gabe "Force" Banner, seduces a straight-laced accountant before she realizes she's talking to a rock star.

    save your hard earned credits, stay away!! this book is nothing like the Sinner's series. I had high hopes that crashed so hard. in the Sinner's series, the guys start out as douchey manwhores, then one by one they fall in love and calm down. Soul Regret start as douchey manwhores and stay that way. only one of them follows the sinners storyline, the rest of the book is dirty sex scenes and them being jerks in general. seriously dissapointing.

    Evan Lennox is going nowhere fast. She's living with her grandparents after her parents bailed on her, she got kicked out of her posh private school, her ex-boyfriend proved to be the biggest sleaze imaginable, her former best friend is a back-stabber, and her current best friend is stuck in backwoods New Jersey. To top it all off, one teeny, tiny fire she lit to burn some memories of her ex goes a little out of control and winds up igniting a good piece of a very powerful family's pecan orchard.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    i would say that this book was a time killer. It was not a binge read. I had to force myself to keep going. If you have lots of time, on an airplane or in traffic, then it's ok, still not great.


    Any additional comments?

    I was really excited for this book, it was not what i expected. i kept an open mind, but it was just so meh. There wasn't enough information given early in the book to draw me in. You get little bread crumbs all the way up to the second half and they aren't intriguing crumbs. narrators switch every other chapter, it doesn't give the reader time to make a connection to either character. i had to force myself to finish the book and i still don't know what happened. I wouldn't say this book was good or bad, just middle of the road.

    I really enjoyed this book. It was so detailed that i thought the ending was going to reveal the author as the main character. As the story unravels, you see the plot twists coming. thankfully, the main character isn't oblivious and makes all the assumptions I did as i was reading. I will say that the ending is abrupt and leaves me wanting more, but content with the stopping point.

    This story had so much potential. I was really drawn to the story line, but after the first few chapters, I knew this book was not for me. For one, I can't get in the mind set of the alcohol/drug abuse family. I also, can not understand these guilt ridden children, who have taken responsibility for their abusive parents. This was quite possibly the biggest train wreck of a book that I have ever listened to. The end is not all prince on a white horse, but it made up for the first 7 hours.

    It was so unbelievably bad, I was left wishing I'd read the original. The point of retelling a well known story is to make it more interesting. This author failed. I found this version so boring, that I had force myself to finish the book. It was bad, a total waste of a credit.
