    Angel Crawford is finally starting to get used to life as a brain-eating zombie, but her problems are far from over. Her felony record is coming back to haunt her, more zombie hunters are popping up, and she’s beginning to wonder if her hunky cop-boyfriend is involved with the zombie mafia. Yeah, that’s right—the zombie mafia. Throw in a secret lab and a lot of conspiracy, and Angel’s going to need all of her brainpower—and maybe a brain smoothie as well—in order to get through it without falling apart.

    I just love Angle...this was a great follow up to the first book and you really get to see Angel grow and come into her own. The narration was great, I can't wait for the next one

    Marketing manager Katherine "Kitty" Katt steps into the middle of what appears to be a domestic dispute turned ugly. And it only gets uglier when the man turns into a winged monster, straight out of a grade-Z horror movie, and goes on a killing spree. Though Kitty should probably run away, she springs into action to take the monster down. In the middle of the chaos a handsome hunk named Jeff Martini appears, sent by the "agency" to perform crowd control. He's Kitty's kind of guy, no matter what planet he's from.

    I love this series...yes it is a bit silly and you have to suspend belief a lot but the humor and snark make it all worth while. The narrator was good and am keeping fingers crossed that the rest of the seires will soon follow in auido

    The opportunity was just too damn delicious for Ginger Peet to pass up. The purse full of money she finds - $50,000 to be exact - could give her and her teen sister the new start they need. So she grabs the cash, her gothy sibling, and their life-sized statue of Dolly Parton, and blows outta Nashville in a cloud of dust. Chicago, here we come...

    I'm undecided on this book, I'm not sure if it was the story or the narration that has me undecided...

    Alice Chapman did a very good job in reading the story, maybe it was the southern accent...I am no expert but it seemed off....maybe harder when it should be softer....I used to work with a woman from Tennessee and I remember the drawl being a bit softer....

    While I did like this one, I had actually read the 3rd book first and enjoyed it more than this one. There was great chemistry with Derrick and Ginger and I really liked both characters, until the end where Ginger momentarily turned into the TSTL girl....if I could give 1/2 stars this would be a solid 3.5 star listen

    When archaeologist Zoe Miller’s cousin is abducted by a vicious Russian kidnapper, she must come to grips with a haunting secret. Unknown to even her closest friends, Zoe is not entirely human. She is a werewolf and a daughter of the "Fangborn", a hidden race of werewolves, vampires, and oracles. Zoe’s attempt to rescue her cousin leads her on a quest for artifacts - including Pandora’s Box, an object of world-ending power.

    Story

    This was good, an interesting take on vampires and werewolves. I think what kept this from a solid 4 stars is that Zoe while likable bugged me a bit, I can't quite pinpoint if it was how she was written or how she sounded with the narration, this is not a complaint about the narration Kate Rudd did a wonderful job.

    I liked the mythology and archaeology in this one, I found this part of it very interesting. While this did not have a "cliffhanger" ending, it does leave a lot of unanswered questions and no book two available to answer those questions...which is a bit frustrating cause book 2 is not out until March....

    I really liked this one, did a re-read with the audio cause I realized I had the second book but could not quite remember everything from this one....and I had a feeling I was combining other book plots/stories to my recollections of this one.

    The narration was well done, lots of action, chemistry and a bit of suspense which makes for an excellent read...or listen.

    When college student Olivia Townsend returned home to help her father run his business, she never imagined a complication like Cash and Nash Davenport - twin brothers different in so many ways but with one thing in common: an uncontrollable desire for Olivia. Cash is dangerous, sexy, and bad to the bone - a man whose kisses make Olivia forget she is playing with fire. Nash is successful, reliable, and intensely passionate - and already taken. But all it takes is one soft stroke to make Olivia forget he belongs to someone else. However, Olivia is in for a surprise....

    Down to You 2.5....not quite a 3 star read

    While the book irritated me a bit in the beginning, I think it was mostly the narration, individually both narrators were good and I am of the opinion if you are going to have two narrators let the girl narrate all the girls and the boy narrate all the boys....not back and forth on the POV's because then each character has two different voices....other than that "pet peeve" of mine the narration of the story was good.The story itself....I ended up figuring out the "twist" about a chapter or two before Olivia...so as far as a book being written well enough that you don't figure it out right away that was well done. Olivia as a character while I did not hate her...I did not like her a whole lot either. Cash & Nash...while appealing and certainly sexy...that was about all they had going for them for most of the book.I was entertained by the story, I don't feel the need to move on to book two as I am not that invested in the characters, but am happy with the HFN ending....

    Consoling a sobbing dragon and serving pig buffets are just part of the job for Myrna Banks. Working for a mediation firm, it's her job to get humans compensated for damages caused by the dragons who now rule. But her "typical" day is interrupted by Trian Chobardan, an old flame. He's been sent by North America's reigning dragon lord for help negotiating a truce to avert war. Myrna agrees to help, even though she'll be stuck with Trian as a partner. As the two work together, Myrna finds Trian to be surprisingly supportive - and still irresistibly attractive.

    Story

    The story was good and I enjoyed it...but how it was wrapped up seemed a bit rushed....and with what we know of one of the characters a bit unbelievable....I really enjoyed the world created mostly current times with dragons (as dragons not shifters) and humans living side by side.

    I am undecided on the narration, in the beginning I did not care for it, but her voice grew on me and while great for most of the characters some of the dragons would have been better with a deeper voice (while not really feasible...I think it would be awesome if all audio's had "full cast" narration) I know that realistically I'm not going to get all the voices to be what I think they should be.

    So all in all a good read/listen and hope the author does more in this world.

    As the person responsible for taking down a brutal human trafficker, Alice Appleton fears retaliation at every turn. No one knows about her past, which is exactly how she prefers it…until the sexy cop next door comes knocking. Detective Reese Bareden thinks he knows what makes women tick, but his ever-elusive neighbor keeps him guessing like no other. Is his goal to unmask Alice's secrets? Or protect her from a dangerous new threat? One thing is certain: Their chemistry is a time bomb waiting to explode. And with no one to trust but each other, Reese and Alice are soon drawn into a deadly maze of corruption, intrigue and desire - and into the line of fire….

    I had actually read an ARC of this before it came out then jumped on the audio as soon as it was available. Jim Frangoine is a wonderful narrator, and while I don't always like how he narrates (I thought he fell a little flat in A Perfect Storm) I thought he did a great job on this one.

    I really liked this one, I had not read the first one in the series but had no problem following the story. We met Alice in the the second "Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor" series, and I am glad we get to see her again and that she gets a HEA. And it was pretty cool to see Trace too.

    As with all the men in these books, Reese falls hard and fast for Alice, he wants to know her secrets and Alice is afraid of what Reese will think of her when he finds out the truth about her past...amidst all of this is the search for the "bad" cops within the ranks and then Alice gets herself involved in a whole new mess by assisting a girl in need.

    I loved seeing Alice come out of her shell and not only get involved with Reese but make new friends and get back in touch with her family. This was a great read and I cannot wait for Rowdy's book....I also wonder if Dash will get his book with Lieutenant Peterson??


    So now I want to go back and read all the Men Who Walk the Edge of Honor books then the fist book in this series and then this one again....

    I LOVED this book..it is my first Nora Roberts (as herself and not JD Robb).

    Elizabeth was heartbreaking as was Liz to a certain extent.... Abigail was great, she made me laugh and at times she almost made me want to cry...Brooks what can I say about Brooks other than I think I found my new BBF...Abigail and Brooks together were just great.

    Julia Whelan did a wonderful job with the narration.

    Charley Davidson isn’t your everyday, run-of-the-mill grim reaper. She’s more of a paranormal private eye/grim reaper extraordinaire. However, she gets sidetracked when the sexy, sultry son of Satan, Reyes Farrow, moves in next door. To further complicate matters, Reyes is her main suspect in an arson case. Charley has vowed to stay away from him until she can find out the truth... but then dead women start appearing in her apartment, one after another, each lost, confused, and terrified beyond reason.

    Weddings have the strangest effect on people. How else to explain the fact that Sissy woke up in Mitch's bed the morning after her brother Bobby Ray tied the knot? Or that gunmen are trying to kill Mitch. Sissy Mae now has to escort a bleeding, stubborn, yet still incredibly sexy lion shifter to her Tennessee Pack's turf to keep him safe? It doesn't help that Mitch's appraising gaze makes her feel like the most desirable creature on earth, or that the ultimate stray cat is suddenly acting all kinds of possessive.
