    Promises are lies dressed up for the party. Secrets poison the fairest of fairy tales. Lies stain the purest of loves. I've paid the ultimate price for my choices. The tendrils of those sins bind me to my past. The remnants of my love hold me captive. Then he walks into my life, and makes me believe in second chances. He awakens feelings in me I know I shouldn't have. I yearn for a future without guilt. With him, I dream of a love untainted. Regret is a far-reaching emotion. It barrels through time like a blazing comet, and its path isn't always straight.

    Story

    I read this book earlier this year, and was excited when the audio came out!!! I wasn't disappointed. This is my favorite DeRouen book, so it had to be the first of her audio's that I listened to. Cain's unabashedly male gentle giant is a character worth investing in. He's unashamed of his maleness and his softer side when he meets Celia. Celia's loyalty and guilt to her past love makes this a story that developed slowly enough that you can literally here the two characters fall in love. This is the kind of story that I love. Their love did not develop instantly, but grew as their friendship grew which to me makes it a believable romance.

    The performance of Teddy Hamilton and Brooke Bloomindale was amazing. I've listened to Teddy in other audios and knew I was in luck to have him narrate Cain. Brooke was new to me as a narrator and I was instantly gratified as she brought justice to Celia's character. Brooke did an amazing job with showing the complexity in Celia's character, both the angst and the hope that pervades this amazing character. I even loved how Brooke managed to make Kimberly sound horribly petty.

    I love Helena Huntings books. Put her stories with Jacob Morgan’s voice and I’m in heaven. The story is humorous and quick paced. I’m new to Muffy Newton and loved her, so the narration was excellent.

    Garrett Daniels has this whole life thing figured out. The cocky, charismatic former high school star quarterback is an idolized football coach and "cool" teacher in the hometown where he's not just a golden boy - he's platinum. He has good friends, a great house on the lake, and the best damn sidekick a man could ask for: Snoopy, the albino beagle. Then...Callie Carpenter comes home.

    Perfection. One word. Three syllables. Every reason why I'll never have the one thing I truly want. I stand dutifully on the pedestal he's built, waiting for the day he truly sees me. Then one amazing night, he lets down his walls, only to leave me the next day. Years have passed, and I've tried to move on with my life. But I still dream of him. I still miss him everyday. The memories haunt me. How can I look to the future when my past remains a mystery? The time has come to find the boy who stole my heart and ran away without a word.

    Alex and West first meet as teens. It is six years before they can begin their story again. Amazing love story about second chances.

    Story

    This was my first ever audio. And this set the bar for how I like my stories to be read to me. A thorough mindf*ck that leaves you questioning your reading comprehension. I've read this book at least 4 times and listened to it on audio at least 3 times, and each time I'm still as stunned by the twists and turns that take place in this plot!!! Merc is spotted in earlier Julie books, but this is finally his book. We meet Sydney for a very short time in an earlier book. No you don't have to read the earlier books to follow this one, but it does increase the suspense and enjoyment of this book.

    I really did question my sanity when I realized I loved this book the first time I read it. There a few instances where I wondered why is Merc my all time favorite Julie character. This book is not for the easily offended, but if you see it through to the end you will be blown away!!!

    Anna Riordan and Troy Duran did an amazing job of bringing these characters and this story to life. Troy has been my favorite narrator since this book.

    Five months in, NHL forward Ryan Wesley is having a record-breaking rookie season. He's living his dream of playing pro hockey and coming home every night to the man he loves - Jamie Canning, his longtime best friend turned boyfriend. There's just one problem: the most important relationship of his life is one he needs to keep hidden, or else face a media storm that will eclipse his success on the ice.

    Story

    As with all books that I listen to, I've already read this. I only buy the audible if I love the story because I want the experience of listening to narrators bring my favorite stories to life. If you haven't listened to Him first, stop and go there first. Us is the continuing story of Jamie and Wes. It's a beautifully written story of what comes after the HEA. It's the ups and downs of being in a challenging relationship. It's the acceptance of not having the perfect relationship while being perfectly in love. It's the reality of love.

    I love both Teddy Hamilton and Jacob Morgan as narrators. I've heard them in other stories, and I love how they both bring different emotions to the various parts and scenes they play. When Jamie and Wes are struggling as a couple, Teddy and Jacob do a phenomenal job of giving the listener the perfect amount of emotion to make those scenes tear worthy.

    Being engaged to Alex Waters, team captain and the highest paid NHL player in the league, is awesome. How could it not be? In addition to being an amazing hockey player, he's an incurable romantic with an XL heart - and an XXL hockey stick in his pants. And he knows how to use it. Incredibly, orgasmically well. Alex is the whole package and more. Literally. Like his package is insane. Total world record holder material.

    Violet is as entertaining as ever, and Alex is a sweet an imaginable. It's not just a continuation of Alex's and Violet's story, but an update on other couples from this series. It's a preparation of what is to come in Lance's story, and sometime soon Darren and Charlene's story.

    The narrator's did a truly amazing job of bringing to life the humorously endearing story that Helena Hunting wrote. Various scenes required angst, while other required comedy. These narrators conveyed those emotions flawlessly.

    Keane Morgan wouldn't return any of my calls or texts, and I was pissed as hell about it. I didn't want to drive from Seattle to L.A. with the guy any more than he wanted to drive with me, but I had no frickin' choice in the matter - at least, not if I wanted to use his brother Dax's coveted parking spot at UCLA. Okay, so it turned out Keane was objectively gorgeous, and, fine, pretty funny, too. But did he have to be so damned in love with himself? I mean, jeez, the cocky way he flashed those dimples was just so orchestrated.

    I loved reading this last year, so I finally decided to listen to it. The silliness that is Peen is amazing on audio. The performance between John Lane and Lauren Rowe was great. At first I was worried because I had not heard either narrator before, but I was surprised with how well they delivered. The story is both amusing and endearing. The purpose of reading romances is to get the HEA and this story does a great job at that.

    It wasn't the way this kind of story was supposed to go...insta-love isn't supposed to turn into insta-hate. But that's exactly what happened when the dreamboat I met in a bar turned out to be a lying, cheating scumbag looking for nothing but a little side action. And he has the nerve to call me a liar and a "sociopath"? Asshole. And now, three months later, it turns out my boss is marrying his sister in Hawaii and I've got to play nice with him for an entire freaking week.

    If you’ve followed Lauren Rowe, then you’re familiar with the awesomeness that is her writing. But listening to her stories is amazing!!! It adds another dimension to the beauty that is the love story of Ryan and Tessa.

    Miller "Buck" Butterson has been banging his way through life ever since a puck to the face fixed his messed-up front teeth. After five years in the NHL, deflecting goals on the ice and scoring them with puck bunnies, Miller has decided he's ready for a girlfriend. A real, nonbunny girlfriend to take on dates and not jump into bed with after five seconds of conversation. Miller thinks he's found that woman in his teammate's sister.
