    Jocelyn Butler has been hiding from her past for years. But all her secrets are about to be laid bare.... Four years ago, Jocelyn left her tragic past behind in the States and started over in Scotland, burying her grief, ignoring her demons, and forging ahead without attachments. Her solitary life is working well - until she moves into a new apartment on Dublin Street where she meets a man who shakes her carefully guarded world to its core.

    Story

    Absolutely fantastic. I haven't been touched by a book like this in a long time. I loved all the characters in the book, Ellie, Adam, and Dr. Pritchard.

    Joss aka Jocelyn is brave, wonderful and so real. For someone so young and who had lost so much; she is incredibly self-suffient and independent. That independence keeps her safe; safe from developing close relationships with others in fear that they can lead to further loss. I saw alot of myself in Joss, my younger 22 year old self.

    I love the fact the Joss knows she has issues, but that Braden, that special someone, won't let those issues stop him from forcing himself into her life. Braden was the right man, at the right time and strong enough to be with Joss.

    This is what Erotic Romance should be; passionate, uplifting, real and hopeful.

    I highly recommend this book.

    The audiobook narrated by Paula Costello who was fabulous.

    Blown away by this book and this author. I immediately downloaded book 2 and book 3. This story of Duece and Eva is hearbreaking, heartwrenching and touching all at the same time.

    This storyline of the so-called biker lifestyle is not for the faint of heart. If you go into this story with an open mind, Prepare for it be blown.

    Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He’s exacting, blunt, inconsiderate - and completely irresistible. A beautiful bastard. Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative - completely infuriating - creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he’s never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe’s so tempting he’s willing to bend the rules....

    I was happy when this book made it to audio. The hype behind this debut novel by Christina Laurens is truly deserved. Excellent story line, the relationship and romance develop was stop on. The "steam" between Chloe and Bennett was smothering. Can't wait for the 2nd book in this series "Beautiful Stranger".

    This is the 2nd book I've listened to from Cecilia Grant and I am a huge fan of her writing. The book combines adult and sometimes dark themes, adult reactions and witty writing. I don't know how Ms Grant is going to top this installment but I'm anxious to see if she can.

    Grad student Imogen Wilson realizes she's hit on the perfect thesis for her sociology degree. If she follows the so-called "rules" on how to get a man, can she steer her way into the world and hearts of stock-race-car drivers, and establish their dating - and mating - patterns? Although sexy and reckless racer Ty McCordle is the ideal test subject, Imogen knows that for the sake of science, she can't give in to her growing attraction for him. Yet he's the one who's chasing after her, and Imogen realizes that she actually wants to be caught.

    Story

    Book 2 does not disappoint. The unlikely pair of"Imogene" as Ty so lovingly calls Imogen is sweet. The story continues to evolve and the supporting characters are so likeable.

    This is an erotic romance book and series. I've seen some negative reviews of this series based mainly on the fact that this is an erotic romance series. I would suggest to everyone before buying a book, cross reference the book and series on other websites.

    Story

    This is my first Erin McCarthy book and series. I've been waiting for this series to come to audio. The narrator Emily Durante is very good and the characters are fantastic. Ms. McCarthy writes erotic romance so this series is not for those who like "vanilla' or "classic" romance novels. The language and the writing is very sexy but romance theme runs throughout. Tamara and Elec's love story was sweet and hot.

    I would recommend this series for those who are fans of erotic romance or for those looking for more spicy, sexy romance story with plenty of wit and laughs.

    Where does Lover Reborn rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Lover Reborn is one of the best audiobook I've listened it. Jim Fragione again is wonderful, maybe my favorite audio book narrator. But it's the story of Lover Reborn, Tohr's book that is fantastic. Ms. Ward takes us through the stages of grief, self doubt, pity, anger and renewal.

    The book's other storylines are rich and enhance the book too. This series continues to soar.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Lover Reborn?

    When Tohr realizes that he has something to live for.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the brothers are in the Wrath's room discussing how to handle the letter from the Bastards of Brothers to the glimera. Rhage being sarcastic and calling himself "The easter bunny". The other brother tease him and call him names, My favorite is "Bestie Bo Peep".


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    At Wellsie and Tohr's son fade ceremony.

    Would you listen to The Harlot again? Why?

    Yes, The narration is very good and moves the story along well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The main character Jessie's spirit and how she learns to trust and love.


    What about Helen Stern’s performance did you like?

    Excellent narrator with believeable voices.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I really liked it and I think Ms Walker may change the way people think about erotic romances. The books is sophisicated, sensual, have magical nuances and shows how love can transform a person.


    Any additional comments?

    Jessie and Gregor's bargin is based on revenge but soon you realize these two are made for each other. Each learns to trust each other and finds a kindred spirit in the other.

    Where does Dragon Bound rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This has to be one of the best PNR books I've listened to in awhile. The storyline is fabulous and absolutely love the characters. Dragos and Pia are wonderful but the secondary characters, Trix, Ariel, Rune and The Griffins are just as intriguing and I can't wait for their stories.

    The book was so wonderful. I haven't felt this excited about a series since Gena Showalter's Lord of the Underworld series.

    This is a must read for fans of the PNR(Paranormal Romance) Genre.


    What other book might you compare Dragon Bound to and why?

    Gena Showalter's The Darkest Pleasure. Two strong characters who are thrown together by fate to save each other.


    Have you listened to any of Sophie Eastlake’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It make me laugh.

    For two years, Catherine Marks has been a paid companion to the Hathaway sisters—a pleasant position, with one caveat. Her charges’ older brother, Leo Hathaway, is thoroughly exasperating. Cat can hardly believe that their constant arguing could mask a mutual attraction. But when one quarrel ends in a sudden kiss, Cat is shocked at her powerful response—and even more so when Leo proposes a dangerous liaison.

    Katheryne says: "Best of the series!"
    "My favorite of the Hathaways"
    Overall

    This book was well worth the wait. The story of Leo and Katherine is the best of the series.
