    Romantic, liberating and totally addictive, the Fifty Shades trilogy will obsess you, possess you, and stay with you for ever... Daunted by the dark secrets of the tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Ana Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a US publishing house. But desire for Grey still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, she cannot resist.

    If you could sum up Fifty Shades Darker in three words, what would they be?

    This is the book, where they fall in love and is my favourite out of all three of them


    Any additional comments?

    I bought this on audio as I have already read the trilogy five times and wanted to hear it read to me just to get another 'fix' of the Grey's

    When Grace Sheridan returns to Los Angeles to become a working actress, it's a second shot at a life-long dream. With some help from her best-friend agent, will that dream become a reality - or at 33, has Grace missed her chance at the big time? And when an unexpected sizzling romance with Jack Hamilton, the entertainment industry's newest "it" boy, threatens to shine an uncomfortable spotlight on her life, how will that affect her career... and his?

    Story

    So I 'read' this book as an audio version an it was fantastic :)

    The narrator was perfect, story was hilarious and I loved all the banter between Jack & Grace.

    The seven year age gap between them made no difference and I'm guessing a lot of women would gladly sleep with a guy Jack's age and his sexual stamina - yes please!

    Looking forward to reading more in their story.

    Sophie Black has turned her back on both her cheating husband and her sexy, enigmatic boss, Lucien Knight. When she hits rock bottom, she finds herself drawn back into Lucien's glamorous no-strings, high-stakes world of intensely erotic encounters. Bold and beautiful, Lucien is a walking, talking Viking sex god - the ultimate rebound guy. His is a seductive world of pleasure without limits or commitment, but can Sophie's already bruised heart survive his strict no-ties rule?

    Story

    I wanted Sophie to ditch that scumbag husband once and for all and run straight back to Lucien's bed but I guess she has some things to work through to get to that point.

    Lucien is developing feelings for her that he just can't deal with because that complicates things for him and breaks his rules.

    Sophie can't be with someone that she can't have a HEA with but how can she make Lucien see that he can have that with her?

    Can she resist his seductive charm and just have a professional relationship with him?

    Lucien brings out the sexual goddess in her and she loves it but can it be more?

    CEO of Knight, Inc., Lucien Knight is catch-your-breath gorgeous and damaged by his troubled past in Norway. All grown up and relocated to London, he's built his empire of adult clubs from the ground up to become the gorgeous patron saint of the sex industry. No one knows the dark childhood secrets that have given Lucien a backbone of steel and a heart encased in ice.

    Jeepers this was hot and I loved it.

    I have another BBF to ad to my growing list.... Lucien Knight - Mr hot alpha male.

    Sophie applies for a job as his PA at Knight Inc which is all about the Adult entertainment industry. Her husband has been cheating on her and she hasn't been happy for a while.

    Lucien opens her eyes up to a whole new world in her role as his PA and it is very tempting for vanilla Sophie.

    Will she succumb to her bosses charms and give in to her desires?

    There is a little bit of a cliffhanger at the end of this book but the final instalment is available so you won't be left wanting.

    This is a very sexy erotic story and I couldn't get enough of it

    What made the experience of listening to Ten Tiny Breaths the most enjoyable?

    I really enjoyed this story.

    This was a story about Kasey dealing with an awful life altering tragedy in her life or rather not dealing with it well.

    She is afraid to let anyone into her life and keeps all these walls up but she discovers that she can open herself up to friendship and love if she would just try.

    She never expects to feel what she feels for Storm & Mia and Trent - love.

    Then everything crumbles down around her and she has to confront her past to move on.

    A beautiful story about love & forgiveness


    What other book might you compare Ten Tiny Breaths to and why?

    Wreck Me & Restore Me by J L Mac, similar storyline


    Any additional comments?

    At first I had to adjust because the narrator also narrated a very popular series of books that I had listened to a few times and it felt like they were in this book but a few chapters in I got past that.

    It's been months since Brian Sinclair, lead guitarist for the famous rock band Sinners, composed anything. Unable to write the music that once flowed so naturally, Brian is lost without his musical mojo. But when sexy psychology professor Myrna Evans comes on tour to study groupie mentality, Brian may have found the spark he needs to reignite his musical genius. When lust turns to love, will Brian be able to convince Myrna that what they have is more than just a fling, and that now that he's found his heart's muse, he doesn't want to live without her?

    What did you like best about Backstage Pass? What did you like least?

    I love the whole Sinners storyline


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really like Eric


    What does Justine O. Keef bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    To be honest I think her voice was too mature sounding for the age of the characters in the book and I think she made Myrna sound like she was 50ish rather than in her 30's


    Was Backstage Pass worth the listening time?

    I love the books so a big whopping yes :)

    The new Abby Abernathy is a good girl. She doesn’t drink or swear, and she has the appropriate number of cardigans in her wardrobe. Abby believes she has enough distance from the darkness of her past, but when she arrives at college with her best friend, her path to a new beginning is quickly challenged by Eastern University's Walking One-Night Stand. Travis Maddox, lean, cut, and covered in tattoos, is exactly what Abby needs—and wants—to avoid.
