    Nestled on the Oregon coast is a small town of rocky beaches and rugged charm. Locals love the land’s unspoiled beauty. Developers see it as a potential gold mine. When newcomer Hank Cooper learns he’s been left an old friend’s entire beachfront property, he finds himself with a community’s destiny in his hands. Cooper has never been a man to settle in one place, and Thunder Point was supposed to be just another quick stop. But Cooper finds himself getting involved with the town. And with Sarah Dupre, a woman as complicated as she is beautiful.

    Story

    I really wanted to love this book, and I eagerly anticipated it. But, for me, it fell a little short. I felt like I didn't have enough time to get to get to know the main characters as a couple. There was a lot of info on the town in general, and the folks in it, which I love, but I didn't feel invested in the couple.
    The plot was excellent, and kept me interested, won't say too much there as it will spoil the story.. I am looking forward to the next book, and hope there is a little more of the deputy sheriff and Gina together and how they bring their families together.
    I was hoping this would be more in the line of her original Virgin River series, I really felt Jack and Mel, I was so engrossed. This wasn't as good, and that is a shame for a series opener. Having said all that, i would definitely buy more of Carr's books.
    Lastly Therese Plummer was again outstanding, she is one of the best narrators I have had the pleasure of listening to.

    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.

    Story

    I have liked the previous novels from this author, however I just couldn't connect with this one. I wasn't invested in the characters, and couldn't see their apparent closeness!!! The storyline made me cringe, and I felt no real romance while the HEA was in an unhealthy relationship with a pig. The hero tried to make her see that he would help?? Didn't finish the audiobook, as I could see no good coming from the story. I think the author tried too hard to get a point across with this one, but failed in the execution.

    One night was all it took, and I forgot everything and anything except the sexy fighter in the ring who sets my mind ablaze and my body on fire with wanting. Remington Tate is the strongest, most confusing man I've ever met in my life. He's the star of the dangerous underground fighting circuit, and I'm drawn to him as I've never been drawn to anything in my life. I forget who I am, what I want, with just one look from him. When he's near, I need to remind myself that I am strong - but he is stronger.

    Story

    This book was really intense. Not a book you can listen to and also have your mind half on other things. Loved how the author made Remy testosterone charged, and not half metro as some authors tend to fall into. The story flowed really well, but I was disappointed with the end a little. I don't believe Evans stayed true to Brooke's character, won't say more then that as I'd hate to spoil it for someone. Looking forward to Book 2.

    Single dad and Thunder Point's deputy sheriff "Mac" McCain has worked hard to keep his town safe and his daughter happy. Now he's found his own happiness with Gina James. The longtime friends have always shared the challenges and rewards of raising their adolescent daughters. With an unexpected romance growing between them, they're feeling like teenagers themselves - suddenly they can't get enough of each other. And just when things are really taking off, their lives are suddenly thrown into chaos. When Mac's long-lost ex-wife shows up in town, drama takes on a whole new meaning.

    Story

    I liked this audiobook, however the book description was a little misleading. I expected more of a love story between Mac and Gina, along with how they worked their families into a whole. This was not the case.
    This story is a continuation of Cooper and Sarah's romance and their issues, which might i say was great and excellent to listen to. I felt a lot more invested in them in this story. Having listened to the first in the series I now understand that it is going to be about the community of Thunder Point more than the romance of individual characters.
    Carr also brought teen love and heartache into this story. I actually cried for Ashley!!! I have children so for this to happen to one would be devastating. I really think Carr nailed it, the emotions, the out of control feelings of an adolescent.
    I have to add that if you are new to the Thunder Point series?, listen to The Wanderer (book 1) first as you will have a better understanding of the community and what Robyn Carr is trying to achieve in her novels.
    Lastly, and I know I always say this, but Therese Plummer is my favourite narrator, she is fantastic for this series and anything of hers I have listened to I have thought a better book due to her.

    Nicole Ashe is the average American girl, except that she happens to work for a vampire and doesn't realize it. But all that changes when her boss sends her to convince a local rock musician – heartthrob, to help them retrieve an ancient relic that could be the answer to the vampire's curse. There is something about Nicole that stirs Alec's hunger nearly beyond control, but he would do anything to protect her...even from himself.

    The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

    I have to agree with the other reviewers, the narration is very ordinary. I am a Nora Roberts fan, but this one was not her best. I hope that the following books are narrated by someone else and have a little more substance to the story.
