    James and Bianca's story draws to a close in the explosive conclusion to the Up In The Air Trilogy. After a short but earnest courtship, Bianca can no longer deny her feelings for James, and though she's tried her hardest, she can't help but see that he cares deeply for her, as well. In a completely uncharacteristic move, she has put aside her misgivings and agreed to live with the enigmatic billionaire. Is her leap of faith the beginning of something wonderful, or is it too much, too fast?

    Jen says: "Amazing ending to a wonderful series!"

    Story

    OK, This one was a little long and very descriptive. A lot of what was written could have been omitted and the story would be shorter with the same outcome. I am in love with the characters so I'll give this one a 4 star. The narrator was the best. She really saved the series! Loved it.

    James has initiated Bianca into a dark and drugging world of passion and pain. He taught her about her own submissive, masochistic nature, and she fell swiftly and deeply in love with the undeniably charming and impossibly beautiful Mr. Cavendish, but a painful misunderstanding and the return of the brutally violent demons of her past have combined to overwhelm Bianca, and, confused and hurt, she pushes him away.

    James and Bianca, Stephan, oh my, what a series! I don't usually get this involved with all the characters, but, I couldn't help myself. You have to get this series if you are a believer in the magic of love. This series is a winner!

    When reserved flight attendant Bianca gets one look at billionaire hotel owner James Cavendish, she loses all of her hard-won composure. For a girl who can easily juggle a tray of champagne flutes at 35,000 feet in three inch heels, she finds herself shockingly weak-kneed from their first encounter. The normally unruffled Bianca can't seem to look away from his electrifying turquoise gaze. They hold a challenge, and a promise, that she finds impossible to resist, and she is a girl who is used to saying no and meaning it.

    Jordy says: "4 stars for Mr. Beautiful"
    "Why did I wait so long to listen?"

    Mirren Kincaid remembers the vampire he used to be - and he’s not going back. As the Slayer, Mirren served the Vampire Tribunal as its most creative and ruthless executioner. Then he refused a kill order and eventually found himself the protector and second-in-command of the peaceful enclave of Penton, Alabama. As civil war threatens to break out in the vampire world over the scarcity of untainted human blood, the Tribunal wants its slayer back - and has sent a beautiful witch to retrieve him.

    At first I wasn't sure at all about this series. I have to admit it was the second book that really got me. Now I'm hooked and there are no more books available. Come on Audible, get the next book in this series. Yes, the series is that good.

    Really good book and I plan to get the second in the series. This series does just suck you in and keeps your interest. The narrator is the best, Angela Dawe. I really enjoyed her. Can't wait to get to the second book so I'll cut this review short. Believe me, worth the cost.

    Cold, fine drops of rain fall softly on Evie's cheeks as she emerges from the darkness of the ship's interior to the gray, overcast sky of the main deck. Pulling her dark peacoat tighter to her body, the wind lifts red tendrils of her hair. She walks slowly to the railing overlooking the water. She catches her first sight of the Irish coastline; its craggy landscape makes her shiver in dread. She finds it difficult to imagine now how the Gancanagh had made this their home for so long without anyone realizing it.

    Story

    This book seemed to drag more than the others in the series. The drag started after Evie met her father. It did pick up a little toward the end. Narrator is great! I get Evie's character but she did a lot of whining. I wanted her to get a backbone, and just go after her man. I mean Reed is definitely worth it to her.

    From her dark hair sweeping below her waist to her soft, sexy curves, Tenley Page intrigues tattoo artist Hayden Stryker in a way no one else ever has…especially when she asks him to ink a gorgeous, intricate design on her back. Yet for all her beauty, there is something darkly tragic and damaged about Tenley that, for Hayden, is everything. Covered in ink and steel, Hayden is everything Tenley has never dared to want, awakening a desire to explore more than the art adorning his stunning body. Trapped by a past that leaves her screaming from nightmares, Tenley sees Hayden as the perfect escape.

    Graced with the ability to shift into any form, Diskant Black is the absolute authority when it comes to New York shifters, and as the Omega of the city, his word is law. Protecting the shifter races is more than a job, it's a predisposition ingrained since birth - nothing is more important. Until a chance encounter with a tiny female sets fire to his blood, brings him to his knees and turns his world upside down. Ava Brisbane is more than he bargained for in a mate - beautiful, fragile...human.

    I love to listen to Maxine Mitchell. Audible, you should have her narrate all the super natural books especially the ones with Irish/Scottish accents. She's the best. The book itself has sold me on the series. It has all the right ingredients. Lust, Alpha Male, Love, and a story line. Love the Omega line.

    Evie hangs her head in sorrow for just a moment when she knows she is truly alone. She feels like she's going to her execution, just as he had said. Then she moves forward again. She hops a fence of fieldstone and crosses a field dotted with Queen Anne's lace. Goose bumps rise on her arms as she passes the cluster of windmills that she's seen in a dream. The scent is sweet in the field though, not the scent of heat, like it had been when it was forced upon her in visions.

    What the heck! Only one more book in the series. I'm going to go through withdrawal. Please, Help Audible! These characters have grown on me. It's not often a series like this one comes along. It has all the right ingredients and characters. My favorite is Russel! I could listen to him all day long. His character is so funny and human. Love that guy. Evie and Reed are not the best couple around but they are interesting. I just can't pick a team, Reed, Russell, or Brennus. They are all such characters! :) Brennus's Song: "How Do You Like Me Now by The Heavy"! :) Get the books and listen your life away. Credit and high praise to Emily Woo Zeller for being the voice. Girl you know you are good.

    Soon-to-be college freshman Evie Claremont had hoped that once she'd arrived on Crestwood's campus, the nightmare that she'd been having would go away. It hasn't. She may be an inexperienced 17-year-old, but she's grounded... sane. She looks for rational explanations to even the strangest circumstances. Since meeting sophomore Reed Wellington, however, nothing makes any sense. Whenever he's near, she feels an attraction to him - a magnetic kind of force pulling her toward him.
