    Caelen McCabe's young, reckless heart nearly destroyed his clan. Now, putting family loyalty above all else, he steps up to marry his older brother's jilted bride and salvage the uneasy alliance between two clans. While beautiful Rionna McDonald is a fit wife for any man, Caelen trusts no woman, especially not this sweet temptress who torments him with white-hot longing. As the sacrificial lamb in her father's power game, Rionna will do her duty but vows to protect her heart and her pride from humiliation.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Never Love a Highlander to be better than the print version?

    Didn't read the print version. However, I get drawn into the story much more and it is more real to me when I listen rather than read (as long as the narrator is good). This narrator was very good, both male and female voices.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Never Love a Highlander?

    I love this series. I never thought I would enjoy the "ancient" setting but it really works and seems like Maya Banks has done her research.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Ms. Banks always seems to get the "facts" straight; she seems to do a lot of research about times, places, historical events, etc. and I admire her for that.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Nothing. I usually prefer good male narrators, however, Kirsten Potter does a good job.


    Any additional comments?

    Want more Maya Banks, having a hard time waiting for more books to come out. Please, Ms. Banks, continue to get excellent narrators; as you know a bad narrator can ruin a story.

    Just released from prison, Jase Hollister has only one goal: Stay out of trouble. Strawberry Valley, Oklahoma, sounds like the perfect place for him and his two brothers-by-circumstance to settle down and live a nice, simple life. Model citizen isn't exactly this rugged bachelor's default setting - especially when it comes to a certain hot-blooded Southern beauty - but he's determined to play by the rules.

    Ally Nightingale has secrets. Secrets she doesn't even share with the Rock Chicks. But two men know what she's up to. One has her back. The other has her heart, but he doesn't know it. As Ally rewinds the last year of her life, she knows two things. One, she’s never going to get what every Rock Chick should have - her own Hot Bunch guy. And two, she’s a Nightingale through and through. She just isn’t sure what to do about that. But as her secrets are revealed, the men in her life react.

    Story

    I am going to write this review to cover the entire series….I listened to every book and was drawn in more with each book. The Rock Chicks are strong and in most cases strong-willed, independent, beautiful, funny, mostly outgoing, faithful to their girls (& their guys, once their guys catch them), loyal and always in each others *s__t*/business. They have each others backs and always eventually get into trouble they need help with from their particular member of the "Hot Bunch" and his cohorts. Then there is the shy, sweet storyteller & writer who prowls the book aisles unsuspectingly, of the coffee shop . What a great ending twist in the telling of these stories and who put them to pen.

    KA's Rock Chicks & Hot Bunch are wonderful characters, each with their own personalities and dedication to each other. Then there are some of the humorous, gruff and "helpful" secondary characters that, without them, these stories just wouldn't be the same.

    I loved each and every book and couldn't wait for the next. Wish it all wasn't over but I'm sure KA will come up with something just as intriguing, fun, suspenseful, dramatic, romantic and alluring for those of us who will miss this series and feel the need to continue to spend endless, sleepless nights wrapped up in it all.

    The narration of this series was also good; male and female voices distinct. I am grateful for the audio publishers attention to using the same narrator for the entire series.

    Thanks again, KA. .

    Story

    KA is at the top of my favorite author list and couldn't wait for this series to come out. I listened to the first book "The Will" and wasn't too impressed, however, I just assumed (silly me) that it was lacking in KA's usual character-building, suspenseful, romantic, sexy, & dramatic storyline because it was the first in the series…not so. This one was even more lackluster; so disappointed. It's an ok story, but just ok, no real oomph or pizazz to hold my interest.

    I listened to the entire book in the hopes that something would happen, it never did. Hope her next series that is due to be released the middle of this month on Audible is more in keeping with her usual stupendous story telling. I'm hoping KA doesn't get pushed down several notches on my best author list and she isn't just riding on the coattails of her earlier works.

    Only something as important as her best friend's wedding to mob boss Gabriel Moretti could allow Nika Paynne a reprieve from captivity. Her abusive husband has kept her under his thumb with footage of her beloved brother, Caleb, killing another man. But the respite from her violent life isn't the only draw. Vincente Romani - Gabriel's deadliest guardian - will be one of the best men at the wedding, and Nika has lingering thoughts about the fascinating mobster...covetous thoughts that may put her life in danger.

    The "Wanted Men" Series has become my new favorite. The first one with Gabriel & Eva was superb, but I really wanted Vincent & Nika to find happiness - they both so deserved it. The author is a great story teller and Mr. Schumaker is the wonderful varying voices of the males in this series; but I only gave him 3 starts because he really, really needs to hone is female voices; they really do sound like a man trying to make fun of a woman's voice (in my opinion). I can't wait for the next in the series to come to Audible.

    Story

    I waited so very long for this book and had absolutely no doubt that Kresley Cole, one of my all time favorite authors, would hit it out of the park again. Her three books of the Professional, The Game Maker, Book 1 was one of only three books in the hundred of books I have listened to that I gave 5 stars to…this one just didn't do it for me except the last hour and a half of over 11 hours. I love to listen to stories about hunky alpha males, strong independent females, sexual chemistry and play, but over 10 hours of nothing much more than that was a bit much, even for me. The story just didn't have the substance that Book 1 had and I couldn't get enough of it. Maxim in no way compared to Alex in the charisma or hard-ass department. I would much rather have had the last 2 hours interspersed throughout the sex scenes. More drama, trauma, suspense could have upped my rating. I suppose the next book will be Dimitri's story; come on KC, please give us more to sink our teeth into.

    I can say that this will not stop me from listening to Book 3 or any of KC's other books, but I am sorely disappointed.

    What would you give up for everything? Tristan Stone was powerful, commanding, and sex incarnate. And he wore it all so well. From the moment his mesmerizing gaze met mine, I had no choice but surrender to everything he was. His power. His decadence. His passion. He was all I never knew I needed. He wanted to possess me, and I wanted to be his everything. All I had to do was accept what he offered. But everything has a price.

    Story

    I have listened to other audio books (Sons of Navarus) by Ms. Scott and she is one of my favorite authors. Her ability to bring "realism" into the plot and keep the focus on the main characters is great. She doesn't do all of her character building of the H & H in the beginning of the book but sprinkles it throughout the story to keep listeners, at least this one, intrigued and wanting to find out more.

    Not only is she a very talented author but V. Meunch & C. Fox's performances were amazing. I loved that Ms. Meunch performed the female voices and Mr. Fox performed the male voices and there was no female trying to do male voices and vice versa. It sounded more real and believable. I wish that all audio narrators/performers would do the same.

    This book 1 made me want to move on to the next, book 2 and I'm glad I downloaded all three books so that I could listen to them simultaneously.

    Keep up the good work; can't wait for what's coming next.

    My cock has an appetite. A huge and very particular appetite: blond, curvy, and preferably not a fucking liar... (Although that's a story for another day.) As a high-profile lawyer, I don't have time to waste on relationships, so I fulfill my needs by anonymously chatting and sleeping with women I meet online. My rules are simple: one dinner. One night. No repeats. This is only casual sex. Nothing more. Nothing less. At least it was until Alyssa...

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES. This was a well written, captivating, intriguing and SEXY story. I would not only recommend this book to a friend but to anyone who loves sexy alpha males and strong, stand-your-ground women. The entire story held me on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens next.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked that Aubrey was strong, stood her ground most of the time, quit playing games with Andrew but also was understanding and tender.


    Which character – as performed by Sebastian York and Erin Mallon – was your favorite?

    Well, of course, Andrew and Aubrey. I believe this is my first listen with Erin Mallon but Sebastian York never disappoints.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Most of the book was moving. There was very little in the book that didn't move me in one way or another.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes. However, even though I enjoyed the "story" and it made me want to go on to listen to Book 2 & 3, there was something missing. I'm not sure if it was the narration that was lacking or the storyline itself. It just didn't grab my heartstrings even during the times of angst, drama, romance and intimate exchanges. Hmmmmm…. not sure what it was.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting to me was how Sarah drew Jonas into her "web" of friendship and then more by her strength, her intrigue, etc. Not sure there was a least interesting aspect of this book.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Lauren Rowe and John Lane ?

    I think they both did a good job. I had some problems as the book continued with Sarah's sometimes childish voice and childish dialogue.


    Do you think The Club needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes, and it has 2; the book ended with a "cliffhanger" of sorts so it had to continue on...


    Any additional comments?

    Again, there was something missing for me and as I write this review I believe it, in part, had to do with Sarah's dialogue…really childish at times and not at all like one would think a 24 year old law student would speak, even in her own head.

    The narration was pretty good, especially EL's, but DL's wasn't bad. The story was pretty good. I have been waiting for Zach's story and wished there would have been more to it.. I fell in love with Seth more than anyone else in this book, KP really portrayed his "getting better & settling in to the family" so well. The story, for me had no flaws with the exception that it was too short and even though past characters/brothers/sisters/friends, etc were brought into this book I think it could have been more detailed; maybe the next one, except I think we've run out of characters to highlight in another book.
