This is a Very addictive read. I started in the morning and couldn't stop listing - at all. My ear plugs were in my ears non stop for the entire book. Soooo Hot, Every girls dream, 2 very hunky men sharing her in every way possible. This is the first book in this series and the second book will be an automatic download for me as soon as it is released.
I really enjoyed the first 3 chapters that are available for free. They intrigued me enough to purchase the whole book. Aleatha Romig has written a great story, if you love loads of abuse and nothing else..... Not for me so i won't be continuing with the other two books available. I Must say that Romy Nordlinger delivered a great narration.
We met Detective Reese Bareden and his neighbor Alice Appleton in book one, Run The Risk. Reese rescues a stray dog, brings it home and then realizes that it’s still young and really shouldn’t be left home alone during the day. He’d seen Alice in his building, thought she worked from home, so he approaches her to see if she’d be willing to dog sit during Reese’s long days at the office. Alice agrees. She doesn’t say much to Reese, keeps the conversation “dog” related. Reese, however, is really intrigued by Alice. He thinks she is beautiful but knows she doesn’t think so. He can tell by how she dresses and carries herself. Alice, however, shows no interest in Reese, only Cash, Reese’s dog............ This story grabbed me and didn’t let me go. It’s everything I look for in a romance and while not labeled “suspense” there is some of that in here as it pertains to the case Reese and Logan are working on. But the character who stole the show for me in here was Alice. It’s impossible to describe her totally without giving too much away, but suffice it to say that she’s scarred from her past and has trouble trusting people. If that weren’t enough, she carries a lot of guilt for what happened, even though it really and truly was not her fault. She did what she had to do to survive; but she lives with that every day of her life. It’s caused her to be a bit of an introvert and she’s even cut ties with her family. Alice is super intelligent and though she’s extremely careful with people she immediately senses that Reese is someone she can trust. And he’s gorgeous and sexy and she loves to just look at him............. The introduction of the case that Alice inadvertently lends herself to brings just a little bit of mystery and suspense to this story. It allows the author to continue the human trafficking storyline while adding the twist of drug trafficking to it. At the same time, she provides a nice set up for the next story by highlighting Rowdy Yates, our next hero............
Ultimately, what I really loved about this story was the focus on Reese and Alice and their budding relationship. They get a lot of page time, talking and getting to know each other and we see a lot of character growth in Alice. We see her break out of her self-imposed solitary lifestyle and develop friendships, gaining additional confidence in herself as a woman. Reese is patient and single minded in the fact that Alice is the one for him and that comes through strongly as well. I loved how these two are always honest and upfront, voicing their thoughts and bringing everything out into the open............
From start to finish I love this book and in true Lori Foster style we get very passionate sex and full on Alpha male romance.
I just loved Elizabeth's "Eternal Guardians" series so was excited to see her Stolen series released on Audible. I really liked the hero Rafe in this story, who was a treasure hunter. He seduced the heroine (though seduction wasn't his initial plan) and took an ancient relic from her safe.
This book is fast-paced, reads-like-a-movie feel I like when reading romantic suspense. You know how it's usually the hero that has the more interesting "skeletons in the closet" Well, in this one it's the heroine, Lisa, who has quite a past that came back to haunt her in a big way. Not that Rafe doesn't have secrets either, but it was the heroine's story that was put in the forefront which I liked. Rafe and Lisa were both in their late thirties and I thought they acted like their age. Both were both are strong, capable, interesting and well-matched characters and there were plenty of sexual tension between them right from the start of the book. I also liked the secondary characters, which included Rafe's ex-wife--no, there wasn't anything between Rafe and his ex-wife at all except the easy banter between good friends--and Lisa's twin brother, who were great addition to the story and I want to know more about them (good thing these two have their own book!) .
Although there were a couple of slow parts, there were a whole lot of action to keep you listening. Also, I'm happy to say there were no unnecessary archeology or Greek/Furies facts thrown around in this book, just enough to keep things interesting. I haven't read romantic suspense in a while and this book reminded me what I was missing. A solid debut from Ms. Naughton who I think writes like a veteran author in this book and I can't wait to read the next in this exiting series. Elizabeth Wiley does the perfect job narrating, as always. :)
Aleatha Romig got into my head and captured my attention so much with just these 3 chapters that i snapped up this book and immediately put it on my pr-order list. Can't wait to here the rest of the story. Yaaaaa :)
K. A. Tucker managed to grab me and hold my undivided attention till the end in this very emotional book. The plot is awesome. It’s edgy, its dark. It contains lots of great elements that pull the reader into the story. Though not everything is given to the reader at once, it simply leaves a trail of delicious bread crumbs for the reader to follow. With every piece, the story evolves, becoming much more potent at the end. I want to say more but… The love in this story has got to be the most wonderful and painful love ever. So many mistakes. So little time to fix them all. The past holding them back. The whole dynamic of their relationship and the love it brings to them is strong. I felt so taken back by the amount of trials that they went through. And for the guy to do so much for forgiveness and a second chance, its lovely.... I knew half way through that there is more than what I’m seeing. And when I got to the tidbit at the end…O.M.G. I love it. I love how well the author kept the reader entertained, that the reader could not see what what was coming next and yet it changes many things. But there is one thing that it can’t change…love..... I adored this book! It’s riveting and exciting that I still can’t get it out of my head. An edgy portrait of two people looking for forgiveness, the story can capture any reader. The struggle for a normal life, the pain of what they live through, Ten Ting Breaths is a successful start to the series. A stark and powerful drama, Ten Ting Breaths is stunning. *Elizabeth Louise done an awesome job with narration, just made this story the perfect package. :)
This is Tegen and Cage’s story. "Love doesn’t erase a broken heart, and it sure doesn’t change people. But no matter how old, how flimsy, how frayed the rope of love is, it keeps you tethered to the people you love" Madeline Sheehan is an author who isn't ashamed to write the dirty, gritty and horrid parts about a love, she isn't afraid to write about people suffering from the wrongs they've came across in life, and she isn't afraid of writing that not everyone's love story is easy but that it takes work, and it's literally blood, sweat and tears. I for one have to applaud Madeline for that. Her work is truly one the rawest and most realist stories I've come across and it's honestly a pleasure to read anything written by her! Madeline is my favorite author for the above reasons... In Unattainable we get the long awaited story of Tegen and Cage. I have to say the previous encounters we get with Tegen from the first two books, I wasn't overly impressed with her. All we ever saw was her shouting her mouth off and frankly, it was a tad annoying. So I guess I was going into Unattainable expecting to hate her. As you can see I was wrong. I loved Tegen. Once she started telling her story, I could completely relate to her and see why she acted the way she did. The only way she knew how to handle everything was by shouting, being mean and especially keeping her distance from Cage. At sixteen years old, Tegen lost her virginity to Cage - the guy she'd been in love with all her life. However, it definitely wasn't what she hoped it would be. Cage basically shuns her afterwards - baring in mind he was only nineteen years old himself and was just starting to discover what the club life was all about. I'm not agreeing with his choices but I think he acted like any other nineteen year old would that is surrounded by women that throw themselves at him and alcohol at all the time. But of course, Tegen is seriously devastated by this...and then goes into her own shell. Like I said, I can see why Tegen acted the way she did. She was loud, rash and angry - she becomes even more so angry when she's around Cage. I actually found it pretty humorous at times seeing these two together because they have such fiery tempers that every time they were together, it was pretty explosive. But when it's good, it's good. The sex is more than hot! The tense is more than great! And the relationship between these two is definitely not perfect, but it's freaking awesome! However, there was one part of their story I didn't like, and that was ZZ's involvement. I didn't feel it was necessary, nor do I think it was fair to ZZ. I felt for him in Unbeautifully and he's yet again dragged through the ringer this time around. I am however super excited for his story. I think it's going to be dark and dirty and I just can't wait!Now Dirty and Ellie - Ummmmm.....I had to think hard about this one. Dirty is one f**ked up guy, but for some reason the more I read of his story, the more I started to like him. I don't completely understand his and Ellie's relationship, I can't see how it could work with all his troubles but I do applaud Ellie for being her sweet self and falling in love with a guy with that many issues, and whose willing to try and make things work.In all, Unattainable comes with many ups and downs, it comes with beautiful moments and some very ugly moments too but, once you start reading you honestly won't be able to put it down! Well done Madeline Sheehan!! You rocked my world yet again!
Molly Harper always makes me laugh. Her books are fun and exciting. Most grateful for this we freebie sample Audible :)
I've got my Ropes, Spurs and Hat out plus just packed my Saddle bags, so I'm ready for action.... And Boy did i get it with this book. I really, really like this series.
At the start of this book Channing has basically run away from the pre-planned life that her parents have set up for her. Channing’s idea of adventure is chasing the rodeo and it turns out that Channing’s first traveling partner is a slime ball. Enter our white knight, Colby McKay and his traveling partner’s Trevor Glanzer and Edgar Mancuso. Colby offer’s Channing the adventure that she’s been looking for and Channing, how is completely attracted to Colby, can’t help but jump at the chance.
What really attracted me to this book was that everything wasn’t what it seemed with a couple of the characters. That and Colby McKay is a total Alpha male with a practically insatiable sexual appetite. As the 4 amigo’s roll along everyone learns a little something about each other. Which as the story progresses makes things very interesting.
Sexually, pretty much anything goes in Long Hard Ride. At times Colby was a little bit TO Alpha for me but it seems that just when I wanted to write him off as an ass he did something to redeem himself to me. I will say this, it does get very wild. Lot's of 3 male on female action so if loads of - every way you can do it Sex is not for you best stay away....
Wowza! Wildest Dreams by Toni Blake is a red-hot read with a couple that has sizzling chemistry and who will steam up the pages. I got goosebumps listening to this story and that does not happen very often......
Stephanie has come to New Orleans to hunt for her sister Tina, after discovering that Tina has started working as a prostitute and hasn't contacted her for some time she becomes worried and so goes undercover herself as a prostitute at Chez Sophia's where she meets the barman, ex-cop Jake who can tell straight away that she's putting on an act and calls her on it.
Worrying that she may unintentionally get herself hurt Jake agrees to help search for Tina and use some of his old police contacts, after a past tragedy Jake has cut himself off mostly from everyone, but Stephanie seems to be wriggling herself into his life more and more, and as much as he tries to fight it, the chemistry is too strong and they soon find themselves giving in to temptation.
But when Jake starts feeling guilty about being this happy will he put an end to this love affair.
Very sadly this was no where as good a the first book in this series *Yellowstone Heart Song*. The story fell very flat as did the narration. Not sure if i will continue with the series. Perhaps with a better narrator....
