    What a great listen! In a similar vein of FSOG, Bared to you, etc. etc. this book was delicious. It's a quick listen so things get straight to the point. I would be remiss not to immediately mention that two seconds in when the male narrator Shane East began speaking I knew this was going to be a scorcher! Grace Grant is good too, but I can't wait to get to book 2 when it's all Shane. I already am intrigued by the characters, especially Ethan---yummy! This seems to be the beginning of a dramatic romance, and I am HOOKED. I listened to this practically in one sitting. As it was coming to the end as I prepared to leave for work, I was almost late leaving because I HAD to immediately buy books 2 & pre-order 3 so my listening wouldn't be interrupted!

    Vanessa Carmichael will never forget that horrible day for as long as she lives. With Zane fully on the mend from the brutal attack he suffered right in her very own yard, she knows she should be grateful, which she is. She also knows that walking away from Zane might be the only way to keep him safe. V knows she can't trust her own heart, especially when it comes to the youngest Walker brother. But he's not the kind of man who will walk away when there is something he wants.

    I don't know why I loved this book so much but I really did! ZANE had me mesmerized with every word spoken. There were moments that I thought my skin was on fire it was so hot! This book isn't for everyone, the plot isn't super deep and some characters are a bit one-dimensional. Truth be told, I think that goes for the series, but I'm loving it so far! There are tons of characters so you've got to keep up, and they're all sleeping with each other! Lots of bi-curiosity going on, and it wasn't distasteful, in fact, it's one of the funnier and hotter aspects of the story. I thoroughly enjoyed the male narrator--he gave Zane so much life and character, I laughed out right many times throughout. If you're in the mood for a little country sass and erotica, try this one of for size, you won't be disappointed!

    Zoey Stranford might've had a crush on the sexy boy next door since middle school, but she's a woman now, and that crush has turned into a full-blown case of lust. So why is it that at twenty-nine her libido decides to ramp into high gear, making her only focus the intensely sexy, scorching hot boy next door - who is definitely not a boy anymore? The problem is, Zoey and Kaleb have been best friends for as long as she can remember.

    Story

    This book was a pleasant surprise of awesomely hot sex and a good enough storyline to keep me hooked and purchasing book two already. I LOVE a good "we've been friends since we were kids" type of romance story, so this one was right up my alley. Kaleb and Zoey were awesome, if not a bit over dramatic in some scenes. I was reminded a bit of a Maya Banks' series, so perhaps Nicole Edwards is a protege of Banks? The female narrator left much to be desired, but Bates was good. I wouldn't suggest spending a credit but I'd definitely recommend this for a sale and for someone that really really wants some sex with a side of story!

    This is the best one so far! Again, I feel like I'm late to the party on this series and author. I won't make that mistake again, because I'm now a lifetime fan. This installment of Hard Ink was jammed with action, suspense, HOT HOT HOT sex, and I listened in one sitting. I can not wait until June when the next book is out. One thing to note, is that, I think this is ACTUALLY the 4th book as opposed to the 3rd based on a few references throughout the story. Each book could stand alone, but, I enjoy listening in sequence. I don't think I missed much or any major spoilers revealed by the incorrect sequence so I'm not too miffed.

    Great 5-star listen, and definitely worth a credit!

    The first in a sexy new series by Katy Evans, New York Times best-selling author of the REAL series... This is the story I’ve been waiting for all my life, and its name is Malcolm Kyle Preston Logan Saint. Don’t be fooled by that last name, though. There’s nothing holy about the man except the hell his parties raise. The hottest entrepreneur Chicago has ever known, he’s a man’s man with too much money to spend and too many women vying for his attention.

    Story

    I have mixed feelings. I enjoyed it, because I'm a 'bookwhore' but this seemed like a version of Bared To You with hints of 50 Shades. Then again, that's almost every contemporary romance book these days. This one was bordering on having a few too many similarities somewhat, but since it's Katy Evans, it was a well written and sexy book. I'm frustrated that it ended as it did, but I'm looking forward to book 2 because it's likely to be EPIC. I was very drawn into Malcolm Kyle Preston Logan Saint---what an awesome name!--so there's no doubt that the next phase of his and Rachel's story will be one for the romance history books. He's so mysterious. I'm looking forward to more revelations about him, his childhood, his parents, everything.

    This story felt very different and much lighter than Evans' REAL series, which I ADORED, so if you've read those and are expecting the same, don't. This is definitely worthy of a strong 4 stars.

    Five dishonored soldiers. Former Special Forces. One last mission. These are the men of Hard Ink. Ever since hard-bodied, drop-dead-charming Shane McCallan strolled into the dance club where Crystal Dean works, he's shown a knack for getting beneath her defenses. For her little sister's sake, Crystal can't get too close. Until her job and Shane's mission intersect, and he reveals talents that go deeper than she could have guessed. Shane would never turn his back on a friend in need, especially a former Special Forces teammate running a dangerous, off-the-books operation.

The intensity and emotion in the story made me really connect with the characters. Well written, great performance, absolutely an overall 5-star listen.

    Trouble just walked into Nicholas Rixey's tattoo parlor. Becca Merritt is warm, sexy, wholesome, pure temptation to a very jaded Nick. He's left his military life behind to become co-owner of Hard Ink Tattoo, but Becca is his ex-commander's daughter. Loyalty won't let him turn her away. Lust has plenty to do with it too. With her brother presumed kidnapped, Becca needs Nick. She just wasn't expecting to want him so much.

    I was blown away with my level of interest and pure delight in this book! Sure, when I purchased it a year ago I'd wanted to listen to it or I wouldn't have bought it, but I think I bought it in a bundle and it's just been collecting 'digital dust' :-) all this time. Shame on me because this was a fantastic listen!

    The part of the story that I didn't enjoy as much, at least initially, was the narration; there were some ups and downs in terms of overkill on the dramatics, and at certain points her pace had too many pregnant pauses, but her voice was pleasant if not a little too sweet. All that aside, I loved every minute. I was intrigued and really enjoyed the mystery & suspense with the romance. This band of dishonored soldiers are one sexy bunch on a mission to reclaim their good name and maybe get a little love and nookie while doing so. Nick and Becca will make you swoon, like, eye rolling swoon; I loved it! I have a feeling this is going to be amongst my list of favorite series for sure. Definitely credit worthy!

    Win at any cost. That's always been the mantra of sports agent Liz Darnell. When she carries things too far and risks losing her number-one client, baseball pro Gavin Riley, Liz realizes that she'll have to work extra innings to win him back. It might not be too much of a stretch. She's had a thing for this player's moves since she first laid eyes on him, and by the looks of it, he wants her just as bad. Gavin's more than ready - especially when Liz is offering herself as part of the bargain. And as much of her as Gavin wants.

    This book was smoking hot! Far better than book one and hopefully an indication of books to come. The narrator is awful, but that's the worst of any major negative aspects of the story.

    Horrible narrator aside, there are some books that I can immediately listen to for a second round, and this story is in that category for me. It was funny, romantic, just enough drama to make my mouth gape open a few times, and super super sexy!

    The last thing event planner Tara Lincoln needs is the jet-set lifestyle of a football pro like Mick Riley, even though their steamy and passionate one-night stand proved that Mick is an all-star - both on the field and in the bedroom. Tara played the game of love once and lost big, and she doesn't intend to put herself out there again, especially with a certified heartbreaker. But when Mick sets his mind to win, nothing will stop him. And he has the perfect play in mind to catch this sultry vixen.

    I've had this book in my library FOREVER, and I may have purchased it solely for that smoking hot cover! Great cover or not, the story was really good. Single successful business woman and mom, meets a hot stud muffin of a football star and, oh yeah, he's ready for love, has a great family, loves her child and is great in bed.... I couldn't ask for much more.

    Relatively basic story line, but epic hot sex that makes your blood boil! Jaci Burton is definitely a five star writer in the hotness category, even with the narrator, who, to me, was just ok. I'm all in for the remainder of the books if they're half as good as this on. Highly recommended for erotic romance lovers!

    Somehow I didn't know this book was all of 1 hour and a half, but in that short time, it was jam packed with action, humor, and hot lusty sex! It was good. For such a short story, the plot was sensible and kept me listening. If I'm being really honest, the hottie ex-Seal kept me glue to my headphones! I love a man that sees what he wants and goes for it! If the audio production was a bit better, I'd consider giving this 4-stars for sure. If this is on sale, totally worth it, otherwise, wait until there's a deal .

    I loved this story! Super hot sex--like epically hot, and if Knox wasn't on your radar previously, you will LOVE him now--I sure do!

    I wasn't as much of a fan of the male narrator, but he didn't ruin the story. Other than this, the book was great! Shiori and Knox are almost as awesome as Ronin and Amerie. There's a few new characters and some support players from the preceding stories that come to the forefront in UNRAVELED and I am giddy with anticipation for what's to come! This is definitely credit worthy, and worth every penny.
