A good start to a new series (and a not too bad cover either !!) about the Amoveo shape shifting clans (10 in all) who are being persecuted, tortured and murdered by the members of the Caedo who are humans who know and hate them.
This first book is about Malcolm, a gorgeous eagle shifter, who finds his one true mate Samantha after years of searching he finally starts dream sharing with her however she is a hybrid, part human/part Amoveo who has never heard of Amoveo and doesn't know, or want to know, of his world. Thankfully his patience, thoughtfulness and tenderness pays off as one night he flies into her bedroom and a little more (really, just a little more) than kissing goes on. Sam's life is in danger as traitors step up their game and kidnap her and her friend with deadly consequences.
SH builds the new Amoveo world, perks and abilities then the adventure soon starts as it captivates and thrills too with intrigue, danger, murder and deceit but it's also about trust, family, friendship and, of course, a sweet and tender romance. Lots of interesting, likeable, dislikable, and sexy characters are introduced to us and more slowly join the cast throughout the storyline.
Worth a credit? Yes, definitely and I'm looking forward to the next instalment.
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.
Sorry, but this is one dark and depressing Vampire story..... the images of tarantula sized spiders weaving webs around drugged people waiting to be viciously slaughtered and drunk from in 'the blood room' just didn't do it for me. Nor did the Master Vampire's manipulation and obsession over a ballet dancer - one who he was forever fantasizing about ripping into her throat, having sex and devouring her. There was never any chance of her being changed as it was forbidden and, because she had witnessed something awful, he always planned on murdering her.... nothing romantic there. And he tried to convince her he was human by lying and deceiving her whilst killing off her friends.
Told from dual POV's, the language was often too flowery, there was other slow nasty 'drainings' and murders, Vampires that could change into Werewolves, mild sex, confusing bits and weird supernatural happenings. Games where humans were put into tunnels and hunted by gleeful bloodthirsty drooling vampires until they were all brutally slaughtered. And not even a good narrator couldn't save this one for me.
Worth a credit? I got this on sale at $9.97 but even that was too much, I wouldn't recommend it or suggest listening to it if it was free.... so NO, IMO, not creditworthy.... and I'll be asking for a refund.
The whole Beautiful series has just been great and this one's no exception. Christina Lauren certainly knows how to write a book that captures your heart and, with this one, the heartbreaking story of Niall's lifeless and loveless 11 yr marriage which left him an emotionally confused and sexually stunted man is so moving. Until the strong, understanding, patient, feisty and loving Ruby slowly and carefully shows him the true meaning of love and he can finally truly embrace how to be loved and how to show love too..... beautiful.
Worth a credit? Told from dual POV's but I had a problem with the narrators - CP couldn't do male voices well and all of JC's characters, including the women, sounded the same. However, despite this it's still a creditworthy listen but it did lose a point because of it.
Well this fantastic series has finally come to an end and what a great ending it was as Lizzy finds out the lie of "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" because, for her, what happened in Vegas had life altering consequences because she brought back more than memories from her all to brief time with handsome Rocker Ben. Ben's keeping his feelings about the news tightly held back behind a wall of indifference but slowly through a lot of angst, drama, sexy times, heart-to-hearts and his bitch of a Sister's antics he finally opens up and let's Lizzy in.
Like all of the other books in this awesome series the story captured me and I couldn't stop listening because I just had to get to the HEA bit.... no matter what time of night/early morning it was. And I wasn't disappointed, it was all I hoped it would be but a little rushed and short because I so wanted to bask in their hard won happiness for just a little while longer.
Worth a credit? It was funny, had it's sexy parts and romantic parts, there was drama and peace as I got to share the happiness of all the previous Stage Dive couples. Told from Lizzy's POV by a narrator who could certainly do emotions and male voices well and she helped to make this a creditworthy listen. I can't wait for Kylie Scott's new Dive Bar series which, according to her website, will feature rock n roll, hot men, tattoos, saucy sex, humor, angst and action.... sounds like an auto download for me.
With only a few references to being one of the Sinclair Billionaire's and donating some money this is really about Dante a physically and mentally messed up Cop with Survivor's Guilt. He's been injured during a shoot out, goes back to Amesport Maine to recovery and meets Sarah his Doctor who snaps him out of his death wish depression with a few harsh words and an accidental spilling of her blood. Rather than being upset with her he's grateful and sorry so he goes to see her with a peace offering to thank her and that's when the sparks begin to fly between them.
A nice slow building sexy romance with an multi faceted Alpha male who is kind, thoughtful, caring, possessive, dominant, bossy and protective so when he finds out that his beautiful, caring, tender Sarah had been viciously attacked before and now her attacker is back threatening her life he goes into 'Cop mode' to save her life. There's suspense, a twist, a spanking in a Sub/Dom sex scene and more heated sex, a tension filled hostage scene, other Sinclair Billionaires, friends and secondary characters and a nicely built romance that leads to last minute declarations.
Told from dual POV's, a great narrator who could do good Alpha male voices and portrayed all the emotions well. This is the second Sinclair brother to find love as The Billionaire's Christmas is book 0.5 in the series and tells the story of Grady Sinclair and Emily who are mentioned a few times in this listen. It's not necessary to listen to it before this one but I wished I had to give me the full background.
Worth a credit? Yes it would have been but, at $7.34, my under $10 rule applied saving a credit for a more expensive but maybe not as enjoyable a listen.... and it's even cheaper at the moment being on sale at $5.24 so snap it up now. And I'm about to snap up book 0.5 for the same price but unfortunately with much less hours.
This listen pulls at your heart strings, not because of the tender, sweet love story that developed between the beautiful sweet natured Savannah and the scarred hermit Asher, no.... it was the bitter betrayal. You know it's coming but nothing prepares you for the extent of pain that the heartbreaking shocking revelation will cause both Savannah and Asher.
Great addictive bitter-sweet love story as Asher tells of the tragic IED incident that changed his life (which is unfortunately all too real today) and there's a lovely paced yet quick to develop romance because the attraction and chemistry was there from the start as Savannah could look beyond his scars and found the mentally wounded man underneath. Beautiful words and romantic scenes make you feel the love between these two characters. With Savannah's love and support Asher slowly begins to rejoin the living once more but the price he would pay for his misguided trust in her nearly broke him and caused a deeper pain than the IED.
Worth a credit? Dual POV's, supportive secondary characters, sex, all American Hero, a naive Heroine and a good narrator made this a very enjoyable creditworthy listen.
Randolph and Willow have very different backgrounds.... New Age Mysticism vs wealth and spreadsheets, and they have had an unconventional start in this contemporary romance with an arranged marriage. However, when the ink's dry on the marriage licence thing between them soon hot up but unfortunately insecurities, outside forces or fate kept stepping in to ruin their budding romance. And again, when they both finally come clean with their feelings towards each other, there was a bitter ex fiancée waiting in the wings to sabotage and ruin not just one marriage, but two.
This was an entertaining listen, told from dual POV's with lots of likeable secondary characters, angst, sex, humor, tender heartfelt words and bitter self loathing words, character growth, regretted actions and a twist here and there but, IMO, it would have been a far more enjoyable listen if it had a different narrator.
Worth a credit? Although I enjoyed this listen, I just didn't love it, it's probably a personal thing where some books grab you while others, for some unknown reason, just don't and I found myself caring that the H/H got their HEA ending but not really connecting fully with them. Nevertheless it's still worth a credit.
If you're looking for a hard-hitting raw MC listen then this is it.... but with "you're mine" romance too that turned out to be quite sweet underneath the whole bad-ass exterior. Great start to her new series of Biker Bastards.
Becca wasn't in a good place when Puck found her and rescued her but it took 5 years before they finally talked properly to each other again and then their sexual chemistry took over but Becca was an independent woman who didn't want to be an old lady because it brought back too many dark memories of her past life. And that past life was coming back to haunt her life now with blackmail, betrayal and ultimatums and Becca could only rely on herself to get out of this mess..... which proved to be a very bad idea.
Rival biker gangs, clubhouse business, old ladies, death threats, a murder or two, twists, raw no holes barred frenzied sex scenes, biker talk, heated passionate scenes and a romance - biker style. Told from dual POV's, good narration and HEA Epilogue.
Worth a credit? I loved it, was caught up in every delicious scene and yes, IMO creditworthy (as long as you know what you're getting - slutty alpha males, angst, abuse, strong heroine, action, suspense, steamy sex and a very unconventional romance).
Delilah has always had a sheltered life with an overprotective but loving Father and now, unaware that her life has been threatened, he takes extreme measures to protect his daughter from the danger she's in.
This is part witty, romantic comedy and part serious too with loveable characters, a feisty Heroine, a broody sexy alpha Captor called Nox and there's plenty of action, suspense, humor, fun filled banter, twists, drama, sexual tension, romance and a few tender lovemaking scenes. There's a love-hate relationship between Nox and Delilah and a slow building attraction which nicely develops, with the help of some life threatening events, into a beautiful, touching and sweet love story. But, when everything suddenly comes to a dramatic conclusion, there's also heartbreak, loss and tears. It has an emotional tear-jerker of an ending and a very sweet Epilogue.
Worth a credit? Told from both POV's by two good narrators and a very well written enjoyable and entertaining plot that always manages to capture the mood, portray the character's personalities and describes how two very different people manage to fall in love despite the circumstances. Which all adds up, IMO, to a very creditworthy listen.
