This could be the start of whole new series based around the good v dark Angels because there were quite a few Angels mentioned but I would only be more interested if they were narrated by a different person as GSC ruined the listen. She had a voice suited to the YA genre rather than adult fiction and for this reason I just couldn't treat it as a 'grown up' book even tho there were some sex scenes.
It was a pleasant enough listen but it was also one where you're constantly thinking "stupid move, stupid woman, stupid Angel, stupid stupid stupid" !! I just couldn't empathise with Abby and felt the characters were teenagers with phrases like "did you two bump uglies?" so for these reasons it just wasn't a book I could fall in love with either the characters or the plot.
Worth a credit? Debatable -yes it was a paranormal romance with tension and some love scenes but I just wasn't that emotionally committed to care - so it's a put it in your Wish List and wait for a sale book rather than a credit (change the narrator and all may have been different).
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.
Another winner from Roxie.... they've all got a great storyline, sex, suspense, secrets, intrigue, twists, surprises, violence and this one had a very sweet love story too as virgin Vivian and Mob Boss Nikolai's long long pent up attraction to each other and desire for one other is finally, yes finally acted on after years of longing looks, mustn't touch and denial. When an explosive kidnapping scene leaves Nikolai for dead and his thoughts that his beloved Ward Vee has been snatched to be tortured, raped or sold into the sex slave industry it sends him into an all consuming rage which kicks off his possessive 'mine' gene.
Hot tattooed Russians, gangster warfare, Dad's from Hell, tortured histories, murder, a sex slave ring, a "who keeps doing this to us and why?" exciting plot and well loved characters from the previous books. Then there's a very thoughtful, sweet, passionate and finally sexy romance which had sometimes humorous, sometimes quick, sometimes dirty but always loving banter between the two of them. Nikolai felt unworthy of Vivian and he wanted to get out for her but instead he unwillingly and unwittingly dragged her further in.
Dual POV's by a good narrator who had a lot of different accents and voices to do which she did well except sometimes I thought Vivian's voice sounded a bit young and with a couple of the sex acts she came across as naive for a woman of her age.
Worth a credit? Yes..... and please keep em coming Roxie.
First of all this is actually book 0.5 in the Sinclair Billionaire series and I purchased this Novella because I had already listened to book 1 No Ordinary Billionaire which was about Dante and this Novella is about his brother Grady.
Anywhoo back to the book, this was a short but very enjoyable listen about the hermit Grady Sinclair but he had good reasons to dislike mixing with people, hating parties and had feeling like he was different from the rest of the Sinclairs. He dreamed of fitting in with the rest of his four siblings but he never did because of the actions of his cruel Father..... but, at 18, fate stepped in and helped him out.
Thirteen years later, Emily fell on his doorstep (literally) desperately looking for a donation for the broke Charity Youth Centre where she was a Director and when handsome Grady himself opened the door it was game over for both of them because Grady made her an offer she couldn't refuse. It was a charming, funny, sweet, tender, romantic and heroic story as they clashed, argued, made mad passionate possessive love and shared Christmas together. With a couple of short drama filled near death experiences thrown in too.
Worth a credit? Dual POV's, a great narrator who could do male voices well and it was under $10 (and it was a bargain at only $5.24 while on sale) it was a very worthy buy so saving a credit for a more expensive listen.
What really blows you away with this new series is the fantastical world-building ability that Dani Harper has when she created this Fae Kingdom deep beneath the Welsh Hills with it's characters, creatures, myths, human prisoners and it's hidden enemies all held within. But worst of all is the innocent blacksmith Aidan who, in 1124, was kidnapped then cruelly turned into a Grim on the whim of a spoilt beautiful but evil Princess for not bedding her even though she tried to sexually lure him every time she saw him.
Brooke is a good witch who nearly brought her house down when she unexpectedly summoned Aidan during his desperate bid to escape his heartbreaking captivity that had spanned decades. There was a Hubble bubbling of sexual chemistry, plenty of toil as they tried to protect themselves, and their friends, from the wicked Fae Princess and yes trouble when they underestimated her reach. Brooke has three cats who nearly stole the show but so too did the sub story that involved Laurien The Lord Of The Hunt.
Aidan and Brooke don't get together until there's been plenty of back history referring to Aidan's kidnapping, his blacksmith's life and his awful transformation into a Grim (a big black frightening dog who are summoned when someone is about to die). And also how Brooke is struggling with her magic and what good close friends she has around her to support her..... who are going to be needed when Aidan 'drops' in from nowhere
Worth a credit? Mainly dual POV's but there is extra input from other characters too, a good well known and liked narrator but she didn't quite get to grips with all the male voices, romance, tender times leading to a few nice sex scenes, suspense, humor and a bit of a predictable twist. Pure fantastical fantasy at it's best with a downtrodden handsome hunky hero and a feisty witch who came to his aid and together they made some powerful magic. If you like the genre, IMO, you can't go wrong with this series and yes, it's a creditworthy listen.
You know what you're going to get with this series..... hot Alpha types, a drama filled listen, hot sex, passion and a group of former US Marines who love each other like brothers and will do anything for each other. But the one thing I wasn't prepared for this time was the bitter heartache when the author kills off a main player..... that was a tough pill to swallow. I thought Harper Sloan was brave to do this and to shake up characters and to introduce other characters - so kudos to you...... even if I hated it.
Dee is feisty but she has had a hard life and life just keeps kicking her in the face with more heartbreak until there's nothing left except a mask cleverly erected to protect her from anymore hurt and pain but behind it she's withering away. Her 'so called' friends can't see it but Beck does and he's desperately trying to hold on to her, to show her how much he cares and that he'll be there no matter what but sometimes love just isn't enough and Dee find out you have to hit rock bottom before you can climb..... then soar.
This is a heartbreaking story but it's also one that shows us when a Corps Security guy falls in love it's forever - no matter the cost, consequences or outcome, it's unconditional and Beck really had to hold on and ride the emotional wave that was Dee in order to be there at the end when it all came crashing in around her. Plenty of sex, humor, romance by the bucketful, suspense, drama and angst as Dee stirs up trouble which leads to a lot of danger, tears, shocking events and a death. Good character growth with Dee too.
Dual POV, good narrators, a story that goes back in time then spans a few years giving fans of the series up-to-date news of the previous couples, a strong but vulnerable heroine and a sexy, loyal and caring hero and together their explosive in the bedroom, the kitchen etc., etc., etc.
Worth a credit? It may take me a bit of time to listen to these books as there are so many good books being released everyday and sometimes I'm in the mood for Vampires, or Billionaires, or Wolves, or Bikers..... well you get the drift but it's a series I will always come back to because they're all one big tortured happy family. Creditworthy - you bet.
I haven't listened to any of this Author's books by her other name of Marie Force but after this captivating, addictive and unstoppable listen, which lost me a night's sleep, I'll be checking them out. The Publisher's Summary pretty much sums up the storyline and all you can do is hold on and listen to a beautiful story that has a very very sexually damaged Natalie literally falling at the feet of Flynn who's a handsome, successful movie star with the title of Sexiest Man Alive who sees the innocence and normality in Natalie and, like a refreshing change of pace, her rarity calls to him. But, as they fall head over heels, Flynn's plagued with doubts about his secret BDSM life choice and teeters back and forth about which love he should or could give up.
It's a totally unrealistic Cinderella type whirlwind romance and I loved every minute of it, couldn't stop listening as his patience, thoughtfulness and sexual pull eventually had Natalie (and me) panting for more more more. And, as the dreaded cliffhanger exploded and chaos took the place where happiness once lived, I know the wait to hear answers and revelations will be blissfully short.... just one week, then one week for the finale.... genius!
Dual POV's, no problems with the dual narrators who did a great job in portraying a skittish Schoolteacher with secrets and a haunting past and an Actor who's humbled and is trying to follow his heart rather than his libido.
Worth a credit? If you're a romance lover who can stray from the path of realism and you're not shocked at hot sex and would enjoy Flynn's erotic BDSM dreams where he's introducing Natalie to his preferred sexual lifestyle then you'll be rewarded with a trilogy that's going to be filled with drama, angst, passion, heartache, romance, the promise of hot sex and who knows what else. Yes this is creditworthy and I've already preordered the other two books in this trilogy while they're on sale at under $10 each IMO that's a bargain not to be missed.
Now there's Alphas, Uber Alphas........ and then there's Knight. He's handsome, sexy, rich, a Dom in the bedroom, talks like a biker with short cropped sentences, he likes things his way and he's decided Anya is his. Anya has had a tough life, she's a hard worker, she makes do with sale stuff, secondhand or damaged furniture and is scraping by. She's also studying and won't take handouts from anyone so when she tries to return something to Knight..... well that's when her life completely changes..... and when all the fun begins.
Loved the hero, loved the heroine, loved the storyline which had instant lust, a bad news brother, two best friends - one's great but one's a disaster, lots of hot sex with a bit of spanking and dirty talk. There's angst and drama as Knight's secrets are spilled and a few revelations when he decides to 'put things right' in his own way with anybody who's caused Anya pain. They are both very protective of their blossoming relationship and try very hard to make time for as many booty calls and together time as they can.
Told from Anya's POV by a skilled narrator who gave a great performance of Knight's distinctive way of talking and his 'take no shit' alpha attitude. There's also a very sweet and tender Epilogue.
Worth a credit? I couldn't stop listening, it ticked ALL my boxes so YEAH, IMO, what's not to love and well worth a credit.
