I loved this book, it had a good plot with 2 hunky Rodeo riders sharing one woman and you just didn't quite know how it was going to end. There were graphic multi-partner sexual encounters and I do think that this should have been put under the Erotica category - so if you don't like a heavy dose of sex with your romance then don't get this book.
I have already downloaded the rest available so far in this series and will check out any of her other books.
Worth the credit? Yes definitely, I am so happy I found this series.
I really didn't think I was going to like this listen when it started but the more it progressed the more it drew me in. First I hated who Stanton had become but when the news came about the wedding and his first love I saw a different side to him. He was so caught up in the past that he couldn't see what was right in front of him.... the love of Sofia and it took a kiss and a tornado before he finally realised what he had.... but he was one night too late.
Sofia was a strong and independent woman who wanted to change the 'friends with benefits' status of their relationship because she was in love with Stanton but all Stanton could think about was stopping the wedding and, in the end, it all proved too much for her.
I liked the character growth, the close family unit, the funny high and mellow brother, the romance and the fact that they didn't rush into each other's arms in the end..... she made him work for it. There was a bit of angst and drama but it was mainly an easygoing contemporary listen that had a bit of heat and plenty of romance.... misguided and otherwise.
Dual POV's and dual narration - Jason Carpenter's narration was great especially Stanton's Mississippi drawl but Charlotte Penfield's accent for Stanton was non-existant and I would rather he narrated the whole book.
Worth a credit? A plot that started out a bit shakey but ended up as a heartwarming nostalgic, romantic, sexy and a very enjoyable listen. YES creditworthy.
As Cassie and Ethan's bittersweet tragic and beautiful love story continues we get to see the vulnerable loving side to Ethan as he tries to make Cassie understand that he is finally fixed. But Cassie is reluctant, having been there twice before, but with sweet words and the giving over of his Journals that contain all his thoughts and fears when they were together, Cassie slowly, cautiously and hopefully starts to believe that he has truly changed.
It's beautiful, it's heartbreaking and it's an all consuming (but it must be listened to after Bad Romeo). There's the revealing flashbacks and inevitable breakup but the Author clearly tells the story of a lost damaged boy too afraid to love and would rather lose that love than damage it further. Then your brought back to the present day and the dilemma Cassie has whether to trust her head or her heart...... in the end there was no choice.
Worth a credit? Told from Cassie's POV, good narration, not too detailed sex scenes..... just a powerful, unforgettable and breathtaking romance. Definitely YES it's worth a credit.
Flynn and Natalie's love story finally comes to an end in this very erotic and beautiful listen that is virtually a very detailed and explicit A-Z guide on BDSM as Flynn slowly introduces the very cautious but willing Natalie to his sexual world..... and toys.
But underneath this is a couple who deeply love each other and are willing to change for each other in order to stay together. Flynn shows Natalie that she's his world and Natalie fights her past demons to join his world. Their character growth comes from the deep love they have for each other and, as the 'Honeymoon' period of their marriage slowly trickles away, they are left with a strong unbreakable bond that's been forged from pain, heartache, tears, tenderness and unconditional love.
Worth a credit? Dual POV's, wish there were further books about some of the secondary characters, it was well narrated and it was a very romantic, loving and scorching fires of Hell hot story...... so what's not to love? And YES a creditworthy listen. Marie Force is a very gifted author who must have spent a long time researching for this book which has been noted and was gratefully appreciated.
Ooops, I've accidentally skipped book 2 which is a problem I'll soon be putting right because these awesome books draw you into a world where Vampires, Werewolves, Fae.... and now another paranormal creature all openly co-habit the world of the Humans. But even more it's the brotherly love you feel between this crazy band of five Vampires/Rock Stars who all happily live under one roof like one big family together with a couple of mates and one sweet little girl.
Leigh had a big big secret and she was running from someone so she didn't do friends or relationships and every couple of years she moved towns but she was being stalked by a determined love sick Vampire that was sure she was his mate. But little did Rebel, that love sick Vampire, know that he was about to bring danger, drama, death, destruction and despair on his family by claiming the one woman that was meant for him.
A non-stop nail-biting, edge of your seat thrilling listen by a talented author whose world-building skills made you easily envisage each scene and each character as all the drama and romance plays out. There's a feisty kick-ass Heroine whose angry snappy dialogue soon turns into one of sighs of contentment and moans of delight when she gets a sight of her naked Hero (and who can blame her). Good narration from multiple POV's but mainly the H/H's.
Worth a credit! This is an Author who likes to play with your emotions and boy does she succeed in this pulse-pounding story and she writes a great paranormal romance bursting with love and exciting action.... so YES very creditworthy.
After listening to my last book I just wanted a bit of lighthearted contemporary fluff and that is exactly what I got from this listen but so much more too. At a Charity Ball Gossip Reporter Georgia witnessed something in a side room that she shouldn't have and wrote a damning article about handsome and debonaire Billionaire businessman Peter. Outraged Peter had to find the woman responsible so bought the Paper and was determined to get his revenge.
When Georgia is forced to spend time with Peter she sees beneath his cold 'paid professional hookups' and discovers the tragic reason why he's like that. But it's her that is keeping secrets and leading a double life and the closer they become the more he opens up to Georgia which means it's getting harder to keep her secret until she no longer wants to. However, does she come clean and will she survive the fireworks?
A totally sweet, ultimately predictable, implausible yet entertaining and enjoyable plot, a nice group of secondary characters, intrigue, drama, fun, likeable heroine and hero especially when their deep routed layers were finally peeled back, romance and steamy sex scenes. Dual POV's good narration.
Worth a credit? If you're in the mood for an easy listen with a good romantic plot that's got suspense and heat then YEAH this'll deliver.
A great finale for Clay and Julia's love story where Lauren Blakely managed to weave a lot into just a few hours.... a tense drama filled kidnapping, intrigue, mystery, perfect sizzling chemistry, dirty witty banter, a sweet romance ending in a beautiful Las Vegas wedding and, of course, lots and lots of hot sex (and I'll never look at pearls in the same way again!!!). They've grown as a couple through shared secrets, they've gained each other's trust, taken on a Mafia Boss, developed an unbreakable bond, had hot sex just about everywhere and now finally they can reap the rewards. And Clay's comic brother Brent was an added bonus too.
Worth a credit? Dual POV's plus more characters, Josh Goodman did a great job, an addictive and very enjoyable story makes this a creditworthy purchase but at just over $10 I saved the credit for a more costly listen.
I went back and listened to Night after Night which is the first book in Clay and Julia's budding love story of instant chemistry, instant lust and instant soul mate connection because sadly books 2 and 3 slipped by me and so it's been nearly a six month gap between books and I'm so thankful that I did as I'd forgotten a lot about their personalities and their story - anyhooo.....
This was a good continuation to the dilemma that faced Julia as she had to choose between holding on to the love of her life, letting him go to protect him or sharing her story with him knowing he hates lies and secrets so she could lose him anyway. And she's still being used and threatened by the Mafia money lender and he ups his threats to more devastating and deadly ones.
Dual POV's, narrator was good but I think his female voices could have been better, there's angst, drama, guilt, a few fractures in their relationship which they always thankfully got over by lots of emails back and forth between them saying in the written word what they couldn't say in person, a nice romance with some tender moving words, dirty talking and lots and lots and lots of hot sex.
Worth a credit? Yes, it's totally unrealistic (but I didn't care), Julia annoyed me at times (but I forgave her) and there was maybe too much sex (with some over descriptive 'juices' issues)..... but despite everything I still really enjoyed it. And I'm now eagerly off to listen to book 3 to see what fate has up her sleeve to cause the two happy lovers more grief and heartache.
I love a MC biker story and the Summary of the book had me intrigued and the actual story was quite good...... with the typical Club House antics, sex, drama, angst, secrets and a host of likeable biker characters. But what totally ruined the whole thing was the AUSTRALIAN narrator whose accent was harsh on the ears and even the romantic tender moments didn't, IMO, come across well. I know the Author is Australian but there was no mention of place names and so this would have been a much much better listen if it had been an American narrator.
I would also of preferred it to have been a dual POV listen but sadly it was just from the heroines.
Worth a credit? Nope, not unless they re-record it as it became painful to listen to her and her voice eventually gave me a headache.
Flynn and Natalie's whirlwind love story continues in this totally addictive second slice of their beautiful story but this starts off so tragically after Natalie's secret has been revealed and is splashed all over the world for everyone to share. So their relationship gets tested as Natalie comes to terms with her new situation and shares the disturbing and heartbreaking facts of her rape to Flynn and, of course, he is very loving and supportive throughout her ordeal and tries to fight her battles for her. However, Natalie doesn't stay down for long and together they are a very loving team..... but for how long?
A lot happens, a lot changes, Flynn is still torn because of his BDSM lifestyle and Natalie is blissfully in love and unaware of the sexual secret he's held back from her...... until a chance meeting and a late night phone call changes everything. There's also a couple of GASP, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE YOU CAN'T JUST LEAVE IT HANGING THERE shocking cliffhangers which have me counting the days until I can eagerly and joyfully leap aboard the Quantum roller-coaster once more. And thank you Marie that it is only days.
Worth a credit? Dual POV's and really good narrators certainly helped to make this emotional listen a roller-coaster ride of breathtaking ups and devastating downs but the pure genius comes from Marie Force who's given her captive audience a Trilogy that I know I'll never forget. Sexy drool-worthy Hero, romance, sex, revelations, suspense and humor from one grouchy little dog all adds up, IMO, to a very very very creditworthy listen.
Ella and Porter have faced so many hardships, challenges and heartbreaks in the previous books you think finally, now that they are married, all the hardships, challenges and heartbreaks are surely a thing of the past. So they bask in their hard won together time with lots of sex, tender words and loving touches and look forward to being a family. But unfortunately, in this very tender but equally very traumatic story, their joy at finally being parents are very quickly torn from them when they have to face maybe the biggest challenge of them all.
Porter is always so amazing, so loving, so supportive and so sexy you just want to melt and Ella is sweet, equally loving, caring and has such character growth in this listen you can't help but feel proud of her. You really feel the close bond between the secondary characters and their families too. There's also more drama caused by the capture, imprisonment and eventual trial of the mystery shooter.
Worth a credit? Dual POV's, great narration (especially from the sexy voice of Nelson Hobbs) and finally their long awaited HEA..... every book was worth the credit and, if you haven't yet started on their emotion filled, heartbreaking, beautiful and very romantic journey, all I can say is you lucky lucky listener because you'll get to hear their love story without the annoying months of breaks in between.
