    Investigator Drey St. John never dreamed helping the Braddocks discover the truth behind their father's fatal crash would lead to his own mother's shocking confession: Senator Braddock was Drey's biological father. Determined to solve the case, Drey enlisted all-work-and-no-play Charlene Anderson's help. But the more time he spent with the beautiful forensic scientist, the more he realized their sharp banter fronted a simmering mutual attraction that wouldn't be denied.

    Story

    For a short story, it met my expectations. There were scenes that I hadn't experienced from a romance before that were pretty intimate & racy. The narrator's accent was a little thick and the plot was pretty predictable but I enjoyed the dynamic between the main characters.

    A Washington, DC, defense attorney, Stanton Shaw keeps his head cool, his questions sharp, and his arguments irrefutable. They don't call him the Jury Charmer for nothing - with his Southern drawl, disarming smile, and captivating green eyes, he's a hard man to say no to. Men want to be him, and women want to be thoroughly cross-examined by him.

    Story

    In the romance genre, there ia usually a cookie cutter recipe. Girl likes guy, conflict, guy realizes he likes girl, resolution, happily ever after. However I think Emma Chase proved with her Tangled series that she is willing to off the beaten path. "Overruled" was a dynamic I can honestly say I hadn't read before. Not to spoil it- but this is not the relationship you usually root for. At times you wanted to scold the characters for being so stupid (where is your self-preservation Sophia?!) and other times you were left thinking this story is probably more like how life actually happens. Narrator Jason Carpenter did a southern drawl perfectly.

    However I do wish there was more time spent developing the bond between the couple before the went to Mississippi to make it more believable that Sophia went with him. I'll read (read: listen to) everything Emma Chase writes and I can't wait for the rest of the series!

    Story

    If you're a fan of Olivia Cunning, you know that she does shy away from plot twists, difficult situations for the characters, and relationship conflict. This installment of Sole Regret does not disappoint! The supporting characters get a bit annoying- she wants you to like them in one story and hate them in the next (here's looking at you Lindsey and Nicky) to the point so much character development for them is superfluous and detracts from the relationship of the main characters. Other than that, Gabe and Adam are developed and sexy rock stars that make you excited to be along for the ride.

    This is an interesting format for the series (short stories of each band member over the course of a few days) but I only wish the books would come quicker!

    Five men with power tools, what more can a girl want? Includes the following stories: Kate's Crew - Sultry summer heat has nothing on the five-man crew renovating the house next door. Morgan's Surprise - If Morgan thought spilling the beans on her lust for Joe would scare him off, she couldn't have been more wrong. Kayla's Gift - For some reason, caressing the man on her table is blurring her normally crystal-clear distinction between nudity and sexuality. Devon's Pair - James is sure he's doomed to lose the man of his dreams.

    I'm not sure how the actual book is ordered, but I would have liked it better if the audio book was in chronological order. NOTE: 1st story starts at Chapter 8. 2nd story starts at Chapter 21. 3rd story starts at Chapter 15. 4th story starts at Chapter 1

    For former Special Forces officer Cole Bennett, there's no room for error or emotions on his latest, all-too-personal mission. Hiding his identity and getting much too close to artist Skylar Pope is the only way to get some long-overdue justice. But keeping his simmering desire under control is one battle Cole would give anything to lose. Suddenly Skylar discovers everything she believes in is a lie. And if finding the truth means confronting her family's and Cole's most wrenching secrets, she'll go as far as she has to.

    The plot was well developed and the ending was actually surprising. This was les "Romance" and more "Mystery" or good old "fiction" but it was still a good listen. I did slow down the first part to .5X speed because the narrator was reading unnecessarily fast.

    WARNING: cliche ahead! I completely judged this book by the cover. Fortunately, the writing and dialogue nuances were so perfectly written without being a gaffe, I was pleasantly surprised! I lot of that was probably helped by the narrator who had the a wonderful tempo, inflections and Cajun accent. Great story!
