Just what we want from a Romance novel, it's filled with likeable characters, a believable plot, good narrator touching romance and a happy ending. What more could you ask for - well for it to happen to us I guess.
Looking forward to the next one.
Worth a credit? That would be a DEFINITELY !!
Gorgeous Playboy, Chef and Restaurant owner Mason clashes with the sharp tongued and uptight Doctor Lena from the start and there's plenty of mutual dislike at their first meeting.... however, there is also a faint attraction too as neither one can get the other out of their minds. Fate has them meeting again and Mason suddenly becomes very intrigued as he sees glimpses of what's really underneath Lena's stiff unapproachable attitude and he becomes eager to find out more.
Lena has hardened her heart because of the death of her little sister 9 yrs previously and is determined not to let anyone in because she is sure that that way lies hurt, anguish and pain. But Mason is so patient, kind, thoughtful and sexy (which is always a winning combination for any hero) and slowly he breaks down all Lena's mental barriers leaving room for trust, companionship, sizzling chemistry and love to grow. With witty snappy dialogue, flirting and dirty talk resulting in some nice sensual hot love scenes.
But, as we all know, something's bound to go wrong and when it does Mason's anguish, heartache and pain turns to raw anger as Lena had a difficult 'Doctor type' decision to make and either way someone was going to get hurt but, as tragedy struck, it ended up that everyone got hurt. This was also filled with lots of likeable secondary characters.
Worth a credit? This starts out as a Contemporary, humorous, very passionate and sexy romance but, as Ella Frank's impressive and highly descriptive writing skills brought into the storyline, overcoming the grieving process, vulnerabilities, a heartbreaking death and trust/loyalty/forgiveness issues, it ends up being a case of just grabbing, holding on and fighting for what you truly want. The character growth of both the loveable H/H was awesome to witness as they both struggle to recapture their heartbreaking lost love through unplanned and unpredictable circumstances.... which is life. Then, when the last words have been spoken, you're left having listened to a love story that was so touching, so moving and so exquisite and, of course, so truly truly creditworthy.
Great follow-up book where Rev. Johnson plays match-maker through time an offers desperate Laney a mission and in return she'll get her heart's desire which is working with horses.... and possibly the love of a good man. It's an offer she can't and daren't refuse but he failed to tell her that it's 150 years in the past.
Handsome and caring Horse breeder Tyler has a lot of emotional baggage and wants to stay away from women, especially fallen ones, but he's been set-up and is about to tell the expected mail order bride to go home but when he sees Laney step off the coach his resolve crumbles into dust. But this isn't the life, or century, Laney was expecting nor is she what Tyler is accustomed to in women which makes for a very enjoyable listen as chemistry, need, disastrous events and a vengeful hidden enemy bring two haunted but likeable characters closer together. As the character development brings mutual attraction, trust, lust, passion, sex and a tender love story, someone evil is plotting Tyler's downfall and Laney becomes a pawn in his terrible revenge with heartbreaking results.
Worth a credit? From the beginning to the end I enjoyed and was captivated by it all, the characters, the sweet romance, the unfolding dramas and the unfortunate dilemmas made me unable to hit the pause button until I realised dawn had broken and a new day was quickly approaching. So, yes a very credit-worthy listen that's got a hero you can't help but fall for and a great Narrator that brought him, and all the other characters, to life
Kylie Scotts has managed to incorporate an awesome heartwarming love-story between two loveable main characters and filled it with witty lol dialogue, a painful family tragedy, a little drama, sex and a fast-paced enjoyable plot.
When Mal the confident, crazy, quirky, handsome and downright sexy Drummer of Stage Dive thrust himself so sweetly into Anne's life he was like a wacky whirlwind and all she could do was hold on and savour the experience. This was very much a building relationship/trust/romance driven plot between the two lovers whose depth, caring, fun, antics and chemistry will have you smiling nearly all the way through this listen. The other Band members are involved throughout the story, new characters and there's a recap to David and Eve's story from Lick (book 1).
I'm very grateful to the narrator who made this great book into an awesome listen.
Worth a credit? Oh it so was and it takes a talented Author to write a story that not only totally captivates you from the start, keeps you desperate for the next chapter, entertains you along the way and stirs up that feel-good emotion as you've come to care for the H/H and that they'll get their richly deserved HEA ending. One big problem is that I have to wait until July, yes July, for Jimmy's story and December, oh come on December!, for Ben's story (has anyone got a time machine I can borrow PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE).
Graham, the intimidating Alpha leader, tried to close his heart to the pain of loss but when his human girlfriend Misty's life is threatened when her brother's enemies kidnap her, all the calm denials of his feelings shatter as a race to find her overwhelms him, ignites his feelings and ends in bloodshed, trickery and magic.
Jennifer Ashley yet again delivers a great action-packed story filled with likeable characters, adventure, new characters, a sassy, sweet and strong (when needed) heroine, a tormented hero and a powerful selfless love story as the mating bond finally kicks in. However, Graham's life is in great danger and his pack is restless but he's unable to help himself and so it's up to Misty to somehow save him. There's humor - especially provided by the terrible twins, a steamy romance, an emotional plot, funny bickering and banter between the two lovers, Human threats and an evil Fae character who's been plotting Shifter enslavements so the Las Vegas Shiftertown prepares for war.
Worth a credit? If you're already a fan of this series then you know that JA's world-building skills enable her to multi-layer the plots as each book evolves and moves the Shifter world along so well. A very enjoyable PNR and YES a very good use of a credit.
Sadly, in this second Westruthers book, I just didn't find the same humor and chemistry that book 1 had as most of the time the H/H were avoiding, arguing or annoying each other. Yes there were moments throughout the book where their passions fleetingly ran away with them but mostly Georgiana (the Heroine and ex fiancee) was trying to match up her handsome and patient ex fiancee the Earl of Beckenham (the Hero) to her sister.
The chemistry between them was there along with the attraction but Georgiana held secrets back instead of confiding in Beckenham which stopped her pursuing him herself and he had hardened his heart long ago to protect his feelings so it was a long long time before the 'feel-good' factor of the romance kicked in. But when it eventually did it was very touching, passionate and intimate as the lovers finally rekindled and reunited. There was a constant blackmail threat from one character, secrets to be told, sex and a bit of drama because we all know that, in these books, the path of true love never quite runs smoothly.
The narrator did a fantastic job in bringing all the different voices to life.
Worth a credit? I listened to this straight after book 1 because I had enjoyed that one so much and I was expecting something similar. However, this was probably my mistake because, whilst it was enjoyable and entertaining, it was frustrating too and just didn't have the same impact on me that the first one did. Creditworthy - yes but sadly no the greatest book ever.
Whoa, what a great surprise this unique, refreshing and riveting Sci-Fi/Romance listen turned out to be with it's complex, creative, character and planet-building and a plot that was both imaginative and romantic.
As soon as Elizabeth arrives on Ardagh 1 (aka Ghost Planet) and is met by Murphy, the handsome and charming Irishman she's going to work for, their mutual attraction and light flirting starts. However, it isn't long before the multi-layered, character driven plot takes a nose-dive in a whole new direction as Elizabeth finds herself fighting for her very survival in a storyline that's got character and plot twists, shocks, surprises, danger and action lurking round every corner.
There's a nice tender romance between Elizabeth and Murphy as they struggle treachery and manipulative villains together but their passion, faith in each other and deep love for one another is what's needed to save themselves..... and a dying Planet.
Worth a credit? A host of secondary characters, a convincing love story that's got drama, sex, heartache and joy, a likeable and intelligent H/H and an original well-written Sci-Fi adventure made this and enjoyable, addictive and creditworthy listen. But it's pure fictional, futuristic fantasy with a tiny bit of fun thrown in.
What an enjoyable and witty listen this was as Jonathon the handsome, charming and charismatic Earl of Davenport finds himself dumped by family members somewhere in the country because of his never ending scandalous ways. But he isn't bothered.... that is until he meets straight laced, strong, capable and virginal Hilary who's trying to overcome her scandalous deVere family name. Jonathon becomes entranced and enticed to bed her and so happily tries everything in his Scoundrel's mind to tempt her but promises never to wed her.
The great thing that worked so well in this listen was the humor, witty dialogue and the fact that he was just such a loveable rogue. Hilary is strong, determined and very capable but she's got two brothers who are wastrels and is the Ward of a brutish thoughtless relation. So when she meets Jonathon she's instantly attracted to him (well who wouldn't be) but will he become her Knight in Shining Armour and rescue her or remain a true scoundrel and seduce and ruin her.
There's passion, sizzling chemistry, sex and a touching romance within the hours of this listen which is mainly character driven but it does have a slight sub plot running through it which develops in the last few chapters in danger, threats, murder, kidnapping and revenge. Then, after much heartache, we finally get to see the man hiding behind a Scoundrel's mask.
Worth a credit? There was nothing I didn't like and nothing I'd change - a very creditworthy light listen that left a smile on my face.
A new were-shifter community has arrived (lucky us) as it's got some super-sexy Alphas, a decent plot and hot sex. However, Audible sometimes release books out of order and this is actually book 4 of the Skin Walkers series but you'd never know as the story can easily be a stand alone listen.
Feisty, stubborn Game Warden Eden and an uber-controlling, confident, arrogant, handsome, rich multi-wereshifter Munroe (who's the Dominant over all of the North American Shifters) go head-to-head and, at first, they battle, argue and the friction between them is intense. But when they eventually warm to each other and the sexual chemistry becomes too much then it's clothes off as the Game Warden becomes fair game in a hot, passionate and very needy way because the collar round Munroe's neck has just announced that Eden is his mate and he's desperate to claim what's his.
Good secondary characters - especially her children and an enjoyable, if slightly flawed, plot which tells of sacrifices made and the power that love has in all it's forms. Strong language, including the four letter C variety, narration was ok but lots of gasps between sentences however hero's voice was sexy and there were sexual dom/sub scenes as a strong very Alpha male meets his fated Angel.
Worth a credit? Although Munroe was a jerk to begin with thankfully he redeemed himself half way through into a loveable caring hero (who's an animal in the bedroom) which easily made this a creditworthy listen and I will watch out for future books.
I can safely say that my Library is overflowing with Vampire book/series but NONE, and I mean NONE, had the same impact on me that this minute by minute, pulse-pounding, gut-wrenching phenomenal and intense listen had with it's romantic and emotional heart-wrenching twists and turns, revelations, surprises, secrets and shocks. Cat Miller has created a new Vampire world with it's Laws, Dictates, Rules, Prophecies, Villains, Heroes, Heroines and innocent bystanders that'll suck you into the non-stop dramas and dilemmas that's forced, welcomed or thrust upon so many of it's characters. Then, at the end if the listen, you're left emotionally drained and dazed that the story has not ended..... but rather the battle has just begun.
I'm not going to give any further details as it just wouldn't be enough, or fair to give clues that may rob you of the excitement and pleasure of finding out what a gem this awesome listen is but I will say that it's also an absolute bargain at $7.34 for over 15 hours of pure paranormal escapism at it's best.... including any flaws.
Six Billionaires who form a secret society when younger are slowly being picked off and brought to their knees by love and in this book it's the handsome, sexy, charismatic, playful playboy Reese that fails to duck when cupid's arrow flies towards him. Each book could be a stand-alone listen with only slight references to previous partners/events.
Audrey, the sensible 'good twin', is unaware that she's about to have a bad day when she agrees to help detox her famous 'bad twin' Daphne at Cade's remote cabin. Cade is the man she's loved and dreamed of from childhood and she plans to tell him but she wasn't expecting the unwanted company of his friend - the womanising, annoying and oh so tempting Reese. Reese soon sees both the dynamics of the group and the fire that's hidden beneath Audrey's plain facade and is gleefully looking forward to an exciting, sexy new challenge. He soon learns just how to push Audrey's buttons to bring out her feisty fiery side so when her being mad at him leads to her being bad with him he takes every opportunity to stir things up and even blackmails her with sexual sensual wagers which result in sizzling sexual chemistry, some hot action and so much more. But Cade and Daphne interfere with disastrous and devastating consequences.
Worth a credit? The likeable characters, the humor and the twisted dilemmas, draws you in and will have you emotionally invested in the outcome of the foursome's stay at the cabin. So, if you're looking for an entertaining, funny, hot, contemporary, light listen with a drool-worthy Hero and a romantic story with an Epilogue that'll leave you with a smile on your face, then you've just found it. Pure peachy escapism and very credit-worthy.
