    Story

    Super cute follow up to book one. I LOVE Jack, and love that he loves the 30-somethings! This installment follows the burgeoning romance of Grace and Jack with some real life and "new stardom" issues thrown in there. As was the first book, this was well written with plenty of sass and humor, however I'm still not a fan of this narrator at all, she speaks to quickly throughout the whole story and it's just not a good match. All that said,I'm pretty hooked on this couple and want to find out how things progress, so book three, here I come!

    Redemption isn't a word Jim Heron knows much about - his specialty is revenge, and to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charged with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. Vin diPietro long ago sold his soul to his business, and he's good with that - until fate intervenes in the form of a tough-talking Harley-riding, self-professed savior.

    JR Ward is easily in my list of top favorites! I was smitten with my first introduction to her writing with the Black Dagger Brotherhood and I'm so glad I've got yet another addicting series in Fallen Angels.

    Covet, the first story in the battle between good and evil was awesome! There was a bit of suspense and mystery, coupled with other worldly fantasy & romance that I really enjoyed. The characters are intriguing and left me excited about what's to come. Ward blends the human/paranormal thing like a pro. The narration was good, although I compared it to the BDB the whole time expecting the voice characterization range that Jim Frangione had, nonetheless, Dove did a respectable job.

    I'm all in with this series, and highly recommend it as a total credit worthy purchase!

    Story

    Wow, the reviews on this are at both ends of the spectrum and I suppose I'm right in the middle on Accidental Seal. It was like the author only had cheesy B-movies as a frame of reference and stereotypical locker room banter as a sample dialogue. There were moments of potential because the story itself was good but before a chapter was concluded, it would hover dangerously close to "oh c'mon!!! seriously?!?!" It took me forever to finish it, and that's completely atypical for me. The hot sex was probably the best part of the book, but then here comes the narrator with a voice the equivalent of a robot with really bad accents. I briefly considered getting the next book in the series, but, I can't take the narrator and the amateur hour writing.

    Valentine Jones has never been good at following rules, especially the one that matters most: following the family tradition of being a matchmaker. She's tried, but she happens to suck at it. So when her mother swoops in to help, Valentine is determined to prove she doesn't need a babysitter. Enter Ethan "The Predator" Hunter, ex-fighter and all-around hunk. Career on hold because of injury, his sole focus is to get back in the ring. He has no interest in the people - until Valentine sets her matchmaking sights on him.

    First of all, anyone named Valentine totally belongs in a story like these Kate Perry books. Tamed By You is a story of the matchmaker meeting her match. Ethan and Valentine on the surface are total opposites but are drawn together through a series of random moments that began back in book 6. I liked everything about Ethan--strong, brooding and sexy--Yum!
    The only negative was Valentine's mom; such a buzzkill. Also, I wouldn't have minded if the story was a little longer. Things felt rushed for the first time in the series. Despite this, I will certainly buy the next one, and the next one after that. Fingers crossed book 8 comes to Audible soon!

    Story

    I love the world that Kate Perry has created in Laurel Heights, with great characters that are funny and intriguing. Sweet on You had a lot of sass--the main characters are 'tough cookies' - pun intended (Daniela's a BAKER!) Get it? :-) And of course the secondary story within the primary storyline was equally as good! That's what's so great about this series, you're kind of getting a two for one almost and neither leaves you lacking. I highly recommend this book to anyone that is in love with love...the path to these characters' HEA is a great journey.

    My one criticism is not so much about the story content but about the fact that after books 6 & 7, there's book 10! If it's even remotely possible to get books 8 & 9 on Audible it would be awesome!

    This series continues to pleasantly surprise me. Dream of You was hot, romantic and really funny. Lola and Sam are my favorite characters so far, their love story was made even better with the addition of Sam's daughter Madison. The stories in this series are short and sweet, so things move along pretty quickly, plus the price is right--definitely a bargain! It's the perfect mini-escape where an HEA is pretty much guaranteed. I love it!

    Story

    Even one of the worst characters of the Cyborg series so far...Blackie...deserves love. I cringed at his name back in some of the first books of the series where he's introduced, and cringed even more at how he was with women and his overall mean attitude. I couldn't believe he would have a story of his own! I certainly wasn't interested, but, I knew that Laurann Dohner would have to come up with someone really special with the capacity to love even the coldest and cruelest of Cyborgs, and that could only be the love that man's best friend can give you! Eve, a canine/human, meets Blackie as a prisoner before the Cyborgs free themselves, and totally bonds with him. Fast-forward to present day, and the two reconnect, opening a whole new world for Blackie--one that includes humility, decency, emotion, and understanding. It's awesome that even in an erotic romance novel there's a moral to the story!

    These Cyborg stories are very much 'on the nose', and that's one of the things I love about the series. The misunderstandings between the characters have me in stitches, and the love scenes have me panting! Blackie and Eve fall head over heels HARD for each other, and although I kind of hated him in some of the previous stories he's appeared in, this book redeems him completely. If you're a fan of fantasy and paranormal erotic romance, the Cyborg series should be in your library for sure. Keep 'em coming Laurann!

    Leaving Hannah was the biggest mistake of Marco's life - something he has deeply regretted for years. So when fate reunites them, he refuses to let her go without a fight. Determined to make her his, Marco pursues Hannah, reminding her of all the reasons they're meant to be together. But just when Marco thinks they're committed to a future together, Hannah makes a discovery that unearths the secret pain she's been hiding from him - a secret that could tear them apart before they have a real chance to start over again.

    Story

    On Dublin Street is one of my favorite favorite series, and it pains me when I'm not 'over the moon' about one of the books, but, sadly this is one of those times. To be fair, India Place WAS good, it really was, however, I think the narration left a little to be desired--specifically, with Marco's character. Also, some aspects of the story, or maybe it was solely the narration, were overdramatized for my tastes, which is atypical for this series. Every book prior to this one has been pretty spot on.

    This was a sweet coming of age romance, that, as per usual, had some very intense situations interspersed throughout the story. Hannah finally gets her Marco, and boy do they have a landfill of emotions and baggage to sift through before they find their HEA. It was nice that the entire Dublin St. gang has a cameo and it was nice to 'catch up' with the happy couples. I hope that there will be a 6th book, and even more from this series. Despite feeling rather neutral about this story in particular, I highly recommend the series---it's a credit well spent, and overall, the stories are great and will be repeat listens for sure!

    Ten years after Blayne Thorpe first encountered Bo Novikov, she still can't get the smooth-talking shifter out of her head. Now he's shadowing her in New York-all seven-plus feet of him - determined to protect her from stalkers who want to use her in shifter dogfights. Even if he has to drag her off to an isolated Maine town where the only neighbors are other bears almost as crazy as he is....

    Story

    Something about this series keeps my interest, but, I'm not exactly sure! :-) I am not the biggest fan of the narrator, but she seems to get stellar reviews; I suppose its like eating asparagus or sushi---it's definitely an acquired taste. This 5th installment was one of the funnier stories, which was unexpected, because goofy Blayne didn't make a big impression on me in the previous book so I was unsure about her story. I was pleasantly surprised though; her man, Bo or 'BOLD', was the scene winner from beginning to end, he was a great big ole bad attitude polar lion hybrid, and the two of them together were pretty darn hilarious. As they took on the bear country in an effort to keep Blayne safe from hybrid hunters, the hijinks were in full effect. Despite the so-so narration, this series is like paranormal romantic slap-stick comedy that will entertain you while making you melt just a little at the sweetness of it all.

    Playing house was never so much fun - or so confusing. With her boss on an extended honeymoon, Caroline’s working crazy-long hours to keep the interior design company running - especially since she’s also the lead designer for the renovation of a gorgeous old hotel. And with Simon, her hotshot photographer boyfriend, gallivanting all over the world for his job, the couple is heavy-duty into "absence makes the heart grow fonder" mode. No complaints about the great reunion sex, though!

    For those of you that enjoy your romance with a side of shtick and a pinch of predictable, Alice Clayton is the author for you. After Wallbanger, I wasn't sure where things could go with Simon & Caroline, but, I liked the direction of their journey in this second book. The narration was a bit of a distraction as usual--breathy at times and completely overacted in other moments; however, it's the writing--that sass, humor, and superbly written 'smex' that will make me purchase any other book in this series without question.

    On Dublin Street was my introduction to Samantha Young and the crew of Americans and Scots that made me want to pack my bags and head to Edinburgh! Although I'm 5 books deep in this series, I adore Joss & Braden, so it didn't matter to me that I was listening completely out of sequence!

    Joss and Braden's novella was exactly what I expected--funny, romantic, hot & sexy, and the 'more' that you longed for at the end of Dublin St. I'd purchase this one outright as opposed to a credit, but any of the books within the series are definitely credit worthy.
