    I am starting my second time through on this series. It still leaves me breathless. Such erotica but with a tender love story. Great ending (though I wish it would go on) with Christian finally happy. I would love to hear the whole story from Christian's point of view. The small excerpt we get tells a whole other story in a new and exciting way. This series is not only well written, but Becca Battoe did an amazing job! Her characters really came to life and I could see everything happening in my mind's eye. A truly amazing experience! I will read anything E. L. James writes.

    Great ending to this series. Usually the sequel is not as good as the original book. This one was! Lots of surprises with a great ending. Very much worth a credit.

    A difficult year filled with loss and heartache leaves Allison Scott withdrawn and emotionally disconnected. When she is finally ready to move forward with her life, she embarks on a getaway vacation to Miami, determined to find healing from the painful memories in her past. Damien Wales also has a tragic past that has left him a cold and distant person. However, the moment he sees Allison, he is inexplicably drawn to her, and Damien is a man who will stop at nothing to get what he wants.

    This is a really good story with all the right ingredients. Love, sex, tragedy and drama. Perfect hero with a heroine that is not the typical "I'm not good enough" attitude. While she has personal fears they do not prevent the couple from being together. Good story and performance that I will definitely listen to again.

    A Dom stuck in anger management classes meets his match in his court appointed therapist. Their attraction is off the charts. Unfortunately though, the timing is bad for both of them. Or, at least it is until he discovers his little vanilla doll isn't vanilla at all. Then it's a matter of timing be damned. He can't keep his hands off her. A definite problem, as she has a past to deal with and he has a goal to attain. So when the present rears its ugly head, they are both blindsided.

    While the story is not that bad (not great) the narration is terrible. The sound goes from too soft to hear to so loud it's uncomfortable.

    The BDSM is a little over the top. It borders on cruelty. Remember, less is more.

    This is possibly the worst book I've ever listened to. There are no redeeming qualities. The story was bad, the narrator was bad, everything was bad. It seemed to be written by a teenager. The dialog was very juvenile as though you were listening to a couple of pre-teen boys try to talk dirty. Don't waste your money.

    New York book editor Maris Matherly-Reed knows a best seller when she sees one - even if it is just a tantalizing partial manuscript submitted by a writer identified only as P.M.E., with the return address of an obscure island off the Georgia coast. Maris is intrigued enough to search for him.

    I am hooked. Sandra Brown again delivers an incredible book. Victor Slezak does a remarkable job with the narration. I think he is my favorite so far. I intend to continue purchasing books from this author. I am so pleasently surprised by the depth of characters and the fascinating storylines. While Envy has a more somewhat guessable plot, it is so well written that again, there is never a dull moment.

    I highly recommend this author and narrator. Can't wait for the next one. I am going shopping now!

    I don't even know where to start! This book was riveting from the very beginning. Let me state that this is not my usual genre, but wanted to try something different. I was captivated from the very first sentence and it kept me totally enthralled until the end. The story moved at an exciting pace while being detailed and descriptive. In my opinion, thats a difficult task. There was never a dull moment.

    Ms. Brown brings her characters alive and keeps you envolved with every aspect. Dick Hill does an excellent job with the narration. I will not go in to the story except to say it is full of surprises and contains all the things I love in a good book. I related to characters, was romanced, a little frightened and was thoroughly able to escape.

    I will absolutely purchase another of Sandra Brown's books.......like right now!

    The loss of control. The fear of desire. Allie always thought that mysteriously sexy rancher Caleb Johnson wanted her as much as she wanted him. But since he never acted on it, she was ready to admit defeat. Until the night she was attacked by a vicious wolf, only to be rescued by another. In the triumphant, bloodied male, there was something Allie recognized---the baritone growl, the mesmerizing eyes, the inexplicable animal attraction. Her savior was Caleb.

    I was pleasently surprised by this series. I was not expecting much, but after listening to the first book I bought the rest. It has a very good story line with just a couple of problems. First, the southern accent is a little overdone but tolerable. It gets better in the next books. Second, all the women are a little too much alike in personality. I guess that could be expected as the men are all brothers. Other than that, this series is thoroughly entertaining and very much worth listening to. I hope Sarah continues the series as there is still so much to find out. (Being careful of spoilers here) I like that the series continues the story of all the characters and follows an exciting story. Give it a try!

    I was reluctant to purchase these books from reading the summary. It really sounded rather silly but when they went on sale for $6.95 I thought I would give it a try. What a pleasant surprise! The story is engrossing and different from the millions of others out there in this genre. It kept me so envolved I bought the whole series and can't wait for the next one to come out. The story is believable (for a fantasy!) and tracks very well. I love the characters and Brusier is my favorite. Team Bruiser all the way. If you enjoy action/fantasy with a little bit of sex, you will love this series. I will listen again and again!

    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.

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."

    If you are looking for a bad rip off of the Fifty Shades books, look no further. The book follows Fifty Shades almost to the letter. Really, really bad. Don't waste your money!!!!
