Ok ok well nearly! But for a P/R fan it doesn't get much better than this third instalment of the handsome and gifted Lost Angels, it was awesome - every single chapter is just WOW I didn't see that one coming. Great characters that you'll empathise with and love and some you'll hate, some old enemies but some new even more twisted ones that each play their part in this fantasy paranormal romance that leaves you wanting more more more.
The Narration was spot-on as he flawlessly went from English to American to Scottish and so on as he manages to capture the emotional, exciting, passionate and thrilling plot. No 'hot n heavy' moments but just 1 magical heavenly 'joining' that was more emotional rather than sexual. HKW spins a tale that will leave you drained and happy but bereft it's over all at the same time.
You may think 4 books (maybe more) each about 4 Angels looking for their Archesses may become boring however you'd be so wrong as every book manages to bring a different plot and portrays a different vibe. If you haven't already done so then I suggest you start at book 1 sit back and enjoy the fantastical ride as each book brings you closer to to the ultimate battle.... a heaven sent (literally) good v evil war.
Worth a credit? After my gushing review I think you know what I will say ....... a definite, absolute and positive YES and then some for us P/R fans but if you're not a fan of the genre then save your credit and look elsewhere.
I completely lost myself in this tragic, dramatic and heartbreaking sexy love story as two people's devastating pasts haunt their days and return bringing havoc into their unstable lives. This is a gritty, emotional listen and you just know what's going to happen when both the hero and heroine keep powerful and potentially crushing secrets from each other and you're helpless to stop the heartache but still you mentally shake them whilst shouting "just tell him or her".
Hayden is a handsome, tattooed, pierced, bad boy turned good and he has got his life straight so for a year he's been the owner of Inked Armor a tattoo shop but when he meets Tenley his life, his thoughts and his desires are all consumed with her. Tenley is recovering from a traumatic past which still gives her screaming nightmares but when she sees handsome Hayden she knows she's met a kindred spirit. Their undeniable mutual attraction soon develops into a passionate, tender and touching hot romance but their newfound happiness is all too soon ripped away from them when past conquests and past lives come a knocking.
As I was firmly strapped in and on the ever spinning emotional roller-coaster of Hayden and Tenley's drama filled lives I felt nothing but their pain, their sorrow, their joy and happiness and I felt the hurt, the betrayals, the loss and the guilt as the ride and track came to a climatic crashing cliffhanger of an ending. I'm devastated that I have to wait months for the next instalment and I didn't realise this is actually part of the Clipped Wings series which starts off with a Novella (so I haven't listened to it yet) called Cupcakes and Ink which outlines their initial meeting etc.
Worth a credit? Yessiree but don't get this if you're looking for a sweet or light listen but if you want to be entertained by a well-written, richly described, hot 'n sexy, fun 'n sad, character filled journey of two besotted lovers and their despair and desperate hopes for more than life has previously shown them and think they may have found it in each other's arm.... then gladly use your credit. Then buckle up and wait for the emotional ride that'll carry you off, twist you around and around and after that it'll leave you spluttering and counting the days until you can get back on.
I think anyone who's familiar with Shayla Black's awesome erotic romances and reads in the title 'Theirs' then it's pretty much a foregone conclusion that it's about a steamy, hot ménage. But don't underestimate her writing skills because around the erotica she weaves a tense plot involving a Fugitive, a Dom and an undercover FBI Agent.
Callie has been on the run for years and is hiding out in Thorpe's Dominion Sex Club where she meets Sean who's undercover but loves the life of being Callie's Dom more. However, when Callie feels threatened once again she runs but Thorpe and Sean won't let their little sub go that easy because they love her, have faith in her, want to protect her and have lots and lots of hot sex with her.
A Faberge egg filled with secrets, bad guys, mystery, suspense, BDSM, submission, passion, romance, secrets, sex and handsome Alpha heroes are all part of the ingredients contained within this tasty tale but it's the emotional pull that these characters have for each other and their total understanding and acceptance of each other that makes this such a pleasurable and emotional listen. Sean's a sexy, gentle, thoughtful lover and Thorpe's got baggage but he's protective, sexy and darkly sensual and Callie.... well she's one lucky girl 'cause she gets to keep em both.
Worth a credit? Two loveable testosterone filled heroes, intrigue, drama, danger, romance, heartache, a climactic ending and lots of smokin hot sex.... errr that would be a pulse pounding YES YES YES.
This was a good start to a new series and the well written humorous story tells of Sophie's journey about when she's jilted at the alter and flees to London and there she finds a job writing a Wedding Column for a newspaper. One day she meets a handsome man called Brandon and they have a very nice friendly afternoon walking around London chatting, laughing and becoming friends with mutual attraction so during the conversation she asks if he's married and he says no so she starts to daydream hard about him.
However, Sophie's in for a shock as her next assignment is to write a detailed account about The Wedding Of The Year a marriage of convenience between Lady Clarissa and the Duke of Hamilton and Brandon (a double Duke no less) and she happily goes along for a meeting with all concerned but she's in for a heartbreaking shock. As the plot progresses two love stories emerge and, as the countdown to the wedding begins, the attraction between Sophie and Brandon builds but there's conflicts of duty and honor v love an emotional turmoil that must bring decisions, everyone's internal battles of doing the right thing, an ever growing passion, helpful or scheming Mothers and yet another event filled walk down the aisle for Sophie.
Worth a credit? This was an enjoyable, sweet, light yet intense listen with a contemporary feel, it had a handsome, honorable and respectful Duke who needs adventure from all his responsibilities in his boring life and a strong-willed, clever woman with a sense of humor that is willing to give it all to him if he chooses her. It was funny, sad, frustrating, probably not historically accurate, had emotional rather than graphic sex scenes, there were lots of events, a secret, a well described blossoming touching romance but which, IMHO, went on a bit too long about the decisions to be made, however YES creditworthy.
Laney, the engaged Preacher's Daughter, is a good girl from a small town but when things go wrong in her life she is suddenly confronted with a man she once had a teenage crush on. Firefighter/Orchard owner Jake is a beautiful, sexy, hot, bad boy who's an adrenaline junkie, a heart-breaker and lives on the edge as can be seen by his love of all forms of Xtreme pursuits so when Laney steps onto his property he knows he's in for a sweet challenge and a few weeks of fun…. but he wants nothing more.
Laney is fed-up being good and Jake is just the person to awaken her rebellious wild side but she knows what she's risking as they share more time, thoughts and passions together and she's aware that his cocky banter, flirty ways and sexual skills make it impossible for her to pull away but underneath Jake's casual bravado is a heartbreaking story waiting to be told. However, an interfering ex fiancee, a judgemental Father and a snake all have a hand in bringing things to a head with disastrous and devastating consequences.
This well-written enjoyable story captivated me with it's loveable characters who are complete opposites of each other and yet learn to meet in the middle, an emotional plot that's tender, touching, passionate, hot, sad, funny, sexy, romantic and bitter-sweet but at the end you are rewarded with a transformed Hero who'll risk everything for the woman he loves.
Worth a credit? Well it would have been a YES but as it's under $10 I saved my credit for another, more expensive, listen.
Well in this final Colter story I had to bid a sad farewell to the small town of Clyde Colorado but more importantly to all the Colter family members who I love and who's exploits have entertained me as they are an unusual but very loyal family unit. All I can now hope for a Novella which may tie the loose ends up nicely.
This is the story of Max's Sister Lauren, a sweet but mentally scarred woman who has escaped an abusive relationship by bad guy Joel Knight so has disappeared to Clyde Colorado to be with Max and has been warmly welcomed by all the Colter family who now treat her as one of their own. But her sexy tattooed bodyguards Liam and Noah (yes I'm drooling) who were hired by Max but left behind, desperately need to see her because they feel she's hiding something (she is she is) and may be in danger but also because they both have deep feelings for her and, after a heart-to-heart, they make her a very tempting offer (take it girl). But before long the past catches up with her once again which puts everyone she loves in danger and threatens to destroy her newfound happiness.... and the men she's come to love.
A beautifully written story that's got suspense, danger, murder, secrets, love, loyalty, courage, commitment, passion, hot ménage sex, and a loving family who stick together when the going gets tough. There's also great characters and familiar names from previous books who all help to make this an enjoyable and entertaining ending to the Colter family saga.
Worth a credit? MB has entertained, excited and enthralled me in every one of these Colter books so YES very creditworthy and I'm looking forward to seeing what tasty delight she'll serve up next.
What a great surprise this emotional and enjoyable book was as GLM is a new author to me but I thought I'd take a chance and I'm sooo glad I did as it drew me. kept me enthralled and delivered everything I was looking for... loveable H/H with sizzling chemistry, great dialogue, romance, intrigue, passion, humor and lots of steam. As I learnt about the lives of Kat and Aiden I was swept away with the writing skills, the action, the suspense, the many secrets, the unfolding danger and drama, their tender, touching and sensual passion…. and of course, the feel good love story between two souls haunted by their past.
Aiden is a mouthwatering ex MMA Fighter and he's strong, sexy, tattooed and pierced but guilt from a long ago trauma stops him from loving anyone. Kat is mentally scarred but strong willed she's a survivor of teenage abuse, is hiding from her past, her family and some real bad guys and isn't looking for any type of relationship. They work alongside each other and tension builds as the undeniable sexual chemistry starts to sizzle so when they are forced together they can no longer put out the scorching flames of desire. As Aiden learns of Kat's heartbreaking past it brings out his patient, protective, caring and thoughtful side and together they transform each other, fight for one-another and, through danger and pain, comes healing, character growth, joy, family & friend reunions….. and love.
Worth a credit? Hell YEAH - this is book 3 in GLM's Fighting For Love series but, while this could easily be a stand-alone listen, there are characters mentioned and a continuation of a pre-described plot, which makes me wish I had listened to books 1 & 2 first - however they're now safely in My Basket.
He was a God so what did he need from a mere Mortal? Nothing.... well that's what drool-worthy Sun God Kinich thought but fate and his loving, but slightly mad Sister, had other plans. The offer of $1 million to be a Surrogate was so tempting to Penelope who's got a very sick Mother and draining finances so she meets Kinich to discuss things but a drugged drink and a night of sex leaves them both with much more than regrets over ever opening the now empty can of worms.
It's a charming, funny, entertaining, sexy, emotional listen as two loveable characters find themselves unwilling pawns in an action-packed supernatural War game that has unexpected, devastating twists and heartbreaking consequences. The supernatural world-building descriptions and characters are very well written and the plight that Penelope finds herself in is intense as she unwillingly becomes the Leader of 14 weird Gods. Witty one-liners, funny internal dialogue, a doomed tragic love affair, hot sex, an Apocalypse and a cast of fantastical characters makes this an essential non-stop listen.
Worth a credit? YES but with missing characters, a crisis, the end of the world still looming and a jaw dropping Wh..Wh..WHAT? of a cliffhanger this is far from a nicely wrapped-up HEA ending which has left me simply DESPERATE for the next book.
As I sat staring at a blinking cursor waiting for some sort of inspiration to strike so I could write this review I just didn't know where to begin..... should it be the exciting, acton-packed, emotional roller coaster plot with it's twists and turns, or perhaps the H/H's tortured pain filled minds, maybe the array of interesting, gifted and hot ex Navy Seals (now sexy Special Ops Alpha Shape-shifters with Psy abilities). Or should it be the sudden claiming and the mate-bond which results in a touching, tender, passionate romance with hot sex. Then there were the sub plots, the evil Rogue Vampires, the shocking revelations and lots of heartbreaking drama which were gripping, raw, tragic, intense and had some NO NO NO, WT*, HOLY SH*T and OMG moments. Where oh where to start? or maybe just finish with.....
Bottom line.... great paranormal world-building, enjoyable, entertaining and captivating story which has both humor and tragedy, a wealth of secondary characters, a loveable damaged Hero and a Heroine seeking revenge and some hot n heavy sex.
Worth a credit? YES and a great addition to an awesome PNR series and hopefully JD Tyler is busy writing more thrilling books about the Alpha Pack heroes.
Easygoing bad mouthed Trip is gorgeous, sexy, tattooed and is the Drummer in B.F. but he's had his heart broken once so now he's strictly a love em and leave em happy type of guy but when he smooches up to Holly on the dance floor she leaves a long lasting impression on his drunken mind.
This isn't set around the band, the rock star hype or the gigs and it's a refreshing change - instead it's set in Arizona where unrecognised Trip is pretending to be just a Representative of a rich musician wanting to invest in Holly's Father's X Track Motor-cross business. However, he never planned on being hit with sizzling chemistry, jealousy, frustration, lust, passion, mind blowing sex, friendship..... and love. There's also other's secrets that he must keep and his own secrets he's not ready to share but, as we all know from these books, secrets will always find their way out. Holly brings with her a scumbag ex boyfriend that throws some punches, a loving, loyal and supportive gay best friend and separated parents who are holding more devastating secrets.
I didn't like the dual narration and Nelson Hobbs' narration from Trip's POV was sometimes hard to follow as I couldn't work out which characters were talking and was Trip just thinking or actually speaking.
Worth a credit? It was a very enjoyable refreshing addition to the series as we share in the love story of another band member who slowly, tenderly and touchingly meets and helplessly falls hard for his destined mate. So YES a very creditworthy addition to my library but with one small complaint about the series - I don't like the way that all these books are followed with costly .5 Novella's instead of either continuing the stories within the books or charge a much more acceptable price for a 2 or 3 hr listen.
I want to thank Ms Cole for her gifted imagination, her many hours of work, her thought filled days, maybe sleepless nights conjuring up this exciting, riveting and emotional adventure and say that every lost hour, every minute and every second was so worth it as you've brought yet another spellbinding addition to the Immortals After Dark series. I don't mind my bloodshot eyes or my fatigue because you gave me a listen that I just couldn't, and wouldn't, break from until my bedroom grew light and the birds began to welcome a new day.
You gave me a proud but lonely, tortured and tormented Demon that I sympathised with, cherished and hoped he got his much deserved HEA, a Witch that first betrayed him but was loyal and loving in the end and a suspense filled plot that was filled with action, heartache, passion, drama, witty dialogue, snappy one-liners and humor, sizzling sexual chemistry, hot sex and paranormal beings that were gruesome, bloodthirsty, gifted, weird and wonderful. Then you teamed all that with the much loved characters from previous books and added new ones that thrilled, chilled and totally entertained me.
The final cherry on top was to have it read by the Maestro himself as Robert Petkoff's many accents enriched an already bulging story and breathed life and soul into it's many characters.
Worth a credit? It would be a definite thumbs up YES but this was under $10 so I bought it, saving my credit for another time.
