    Enigmatic and sexy, Professor Gabriel Emerson is a well-respected Dante specialist by day, but by night he devotes himself to an uninhibited life of pleasure. He uses his notorious good looks and sophisticated charm to gratify his every whim, but is secretly tortured by his dark past and consumed by the profound belief that he is beyond all hope of redemption. When the sweet and innocent Julia Mitchell enrolls as his graduate student, his attraction and mysterious connection to her not only jeopardizes his career, but sends him on a journey in which his past and his present collide.

    Story

    While searching for something to follow 50 shades, but written better, I saw several references to this book and its sequel…so NOT what I thought it would be. I will admit that the story was theoretically sweet, with more mature references to fine art and adult romance, but the story seemed to go on forever, and was totally unbelievable in spots with characters going against their core nature for no specific reason other than it continued the plot. I was looking for the hotness I got in fifty shades, and got hours upon hours of BORING drab. I listened to this book and its sequel, not wanting to be one of those people that rated a book without listening to it fully, and I found both to be VERY lacking. If you want a follow up to 50 try “Bared to You” by Sylvia Day, “Beautiful Disaster” by Jamie McGuire, “Thoughtless” by SC Stephens and Olivia Cunnings “Sinners on Tour”, don’t get these books.

    Zoey Stranford might've had a crush on the sexy boy next door since middle school, but she's a woman now, and that crush has turned into a full-blown case of lust. So why is it that at twenty-nine her libido decides to ramp into high gear, making her only focus the intensely sexy, scorching hot boy next door - who is definitely not a boy anymore? The problem is, Zoey and Kaleb have been best friends for as long as she can remember.

    Story

    This book leads me to believe it is a run of the mill boy next door, best friends with the farmers daughter, if only he could get out of the "friend" zone he has been stuck in...ho-hum-ho-hum...boring and sweet....AND THEN...it kicked into high gear!

    There was holy hotness...then a friend joined (WHAT???)....so much for the boy next door thing! There were ex's, back stabbings, billionaire money deals and a slew of excitement! (did someone say thy wanted to build a sex club???)

    Bought book 2 immediately due to the cliffhanger, which has the next books leading character in the hospital at the end of book 1, and I just had to know WHY, HOW....well do yourself a favor, it doesn't matter, and you know the how and why if you read book 1 and book two went off into weird contrived drama misunderstanding land and I couldn't even finish it....but book 1 is a keeper!

    In a rare and interesting twist the Female Narrator is the one I found to be flat, monotone, and in need of some personality, she gets 2 stars. While the male narrator hit it out of the park for 5 stars! You go Freddie Bates!

    Story

    In my opinion this is what every book about a MMA character should strive for...well this and book 1 called against the ropes. These characters have depth, problems, and a life outside of the ring and they aren't just screwed up guys wanting to fight because they need to punish themselves or something, these are relatable, plausible, every day characters that combine into the extraordinary.

    This picks up 2 years after against the ropes....Amanda is doing fine, just fine...she works about 90 hours a week, and sometimes has to catch a cat nap in the office sleep units (provided for employees to catch the occasional 2 hours of sleep), but she is fine...she doesn't need a steady man in her life, the random hook ups she has satisfy her need to feel wanted and that's all she needs.....it's not like she thinks about Jake at all, or the 2 month fling they had 2 years ago, nope...she doesn't think about that at ALL...until she goes to meet her new client in room 13 and it is none other than Jake...and he looks GOOD!!!!!!

    Jake can't find a connection with anyone since he and Amanda broke it off...no one gets him like she did...oh what is he talking about they only dated for 2 months over 2 years ago, why can't he just find someone to take her place? He's pondering this and other things when she walks back into his life looking cool as a cucumber and all he can think is....is this my second chance? Will it be any different?

    This series is an automatic download for me, with a great narrator, highly recommended!

    This book is the age old story of a boss lusting after his secretary, but done very well and it kept me interested. The leading lady has been putting up with her overbearing bosses crud for 5 years, all the while planning her future with her fiance who is just about done in dental school...she has a plan, he will finish school, get a great job and she can quit the second job she has been working to make ends meet and then she will get to go back to school....5 years she has been working on this plan and the month before their wedding she finds him with another woman in a compromising situation. Now she has to move on with her life and deal with her boss...a man who has secretly wanted her for 5 years and would have never let her get married...he was just biding his time until she realized she was with an idiot, well his time is now and he won't let her go!

    This is technically book 5, and there were some references to past books, but I was able to keep up just fine and enjoy the story. In fact, I just put all the books into my wishlist to gobble up if there is ever a sale on them because they sounded great!

    Narrator was great too, all around nice steamy listen!

    Story

    So I looked through the reviews before I bought this book and I am always intrigued when there are rave reviews and scathing reviews, but I get it now. This book had a great world, and great story line, I give it 5 stars plus! There is only one woman in the world who can bring balance and peace to the Feral Warriors, men who can change to animals at will to protect the world against evil creatures bent on devouring those in their path. This one woman is called the Radiant, because she can pull forth the power from mother earth that gives these Feral warriors the ability to shift and the ability to stay sane, without the Radiant they become unbalanced and eventually die.

    We open up our story with the leading lady/Radiant tending to her dying mother and Lion has been sent to find her and bring her back to Feral House to balance his people. She woke up with a mark on her shortly after Christmas but has been raised as human and had no idea what it meant...that it meant her human life was shortly going to be over. Needless to say she is a bit taken aback that she is supposed to be whisked away to another place away from everything she has ever known, and he doesn't understand why she wasn't raised with her people, and how to explain to her everything she is and everything she means to his, to their, people.

    Interesting story right? Welllllllll it got a bit hokey. If you go into this knowing that it's going to get hokey you can be prepared that it's not a literary classic and shouldn't be treated as such. 95% of the story was hot, and heavy, and yummy yummy yummy! The last 5% I just stared at my phone and said "WTF"? It's like it jumped writers during the last 5% of the book and this writer is into the off the wall HUH? moments.

    I'd still read book 2 if it were on sale, and maybe even if it weren't. It was a decent book with well developed characters, a great world and premise, and hot scenes...but it's not a contemporary literary classic....when you hear the word "clone" you will understand what I mean!

    Overall I liked the narrator, and I liked the writing, so I give it a thumbs up, just be prepared for the preposterous moments, it IS fiction after all!

    Have you ever read a book and you know it's heading for a train wreck and you just roll your eyes and moan and say "REALLY?!?!?!?!?" That's where I am with this book.

    This ticks two VERY bad boxes:
    1. Main character does a complete 180 in under 2 pages. He's a love 'em and leave 'em type of guy, never sleeps with the same girl more than once....BUT...as soon as he see's Raven, the hot car mechanic his entire personality goes out the window!
    2. Contrived drama for the sake of progressing the plot. I tried, I really did, I wanted to believe that the main character wasn't going to let me down, but let's just say she is the nearly 21 year old VIRGIN daughter of a prostitute and Vegasas most notorious pimp..how could this character not let me down.

    So, I'm half way through the book and the bomb of all bombs has been dropped...daddy dearest wants his darling little girl to "work" for him....nope I'm done, Audible will be handing me back a credit for this one, just wanted to warn y'all first.

    The narrator was amazing though, I would listen to her again and again!

    This book told us about an honorable highlander, who is scared by his past, and a young lady who is funny and strong but still is waiting for her father's approval. It was heartbreaking to hear of the Laird's first wife, but even more heartbreaking to hear of a noble daughter relegated to servants work and a father who never wanted anything to do with her.

    The antics these two get up to was very amusing and I would definitely listen to a story by this author and narrator again.

    How do you come back from the biggest screw-up of your life? That's the question for Lawton Rastor, the billionaire bad boy from Detroit, after he lets the girl of his dreams not just slip through his fingers, but run away, fast - and with good reason. How do you resist a guy who's irresistible? That's the question for Chloe Malinski, the world's most overqualified waitress, after a nightmarish night leaves her vowing to avoid her fantasy guy for good - no matter how hard he works to win her back.

    Story

    Rebelonging was a wonderful conclusion! Our leading man is groveling, as well he should be! And our leading lady is not taking his crap, nor should she! As Chloe's life continues to spiral I did find one serious problem with the story...the use of the phrase "Do I have to spell this out for you?"..I didn't get the kindle version but I wouldn't be surprised if a word search showed it used at least 12 times in this story *SIGH*...and there was some drama for the sake of drama and misinformation that could have been cleared up easily yet wasn't. It didn't overwhelm the book though, but it was enough to demote one of my favorite couples ever to a 4 star story.

    I laughed SO hard at so many parts of this book, I had to watch which parts I actually took a sip of soda during because well just the thought of these things happening in real life to someone I know made me laugh until my stomach hurt! Needless to say when Chloe finally makes her declaration of who and what she is Laughten's misinterpretation of what she was saying sent me into hysterical laughter! Then the Thanksgiving thing, and the aftermath, freaking priceless! I actually wished this story had a part three maybe involving the kid brother and grandma and a happily ever after, so I am going to cross my fingers...but hearing about Loretta's new job made me smile ear to ear!

    I have downloaded what is kind of the third book which is about Bishop going after the girl of his dreams but I'll reserve judgement until I read it...I would like to visit these characters again, they are smart and funny and wind up in the most hilarious situations!

    Highly recommended!

    Story

    Unbelonging grabs you from minute one and doesn’t let you go, but warning this is book one of two but I have now read both. I’m usually not a great fan of contrived drama but this book kind of had some. Why kind of….well because the secrets were necessary and not just because the characters were being stupid or written poorly. You could see the blow up coming and why but I was still intrigued as to HOW it was going to blow up and what the characters would do when it did. I was very impressed that although the characters were in their early 20’s this wasn’t a YA book, these people had real life problems and I really enjoyed getting to know them.

    Chloe is a hardworking 23 year old. She is a recent college graduate but she can’t find a decent paying accountant job so she works as a waitress in a theme restaurant. To make money on the side she offers herself as a house sitter to the rich while they are away on vacations….she pretends to be a girl from an upper class family who doesn’t really need the money, but in reality she desperately needs money to support her grandmother. She is a highly likable character who tries to think through every move and no matter what happens she winds up in a heap of mess….reminded me of the Jane Jamison Character of Molly Harper, things just happen to this poor girl. She doesn’t want drama, she doesn’t like drama, yet drama finds her nearly every day!

    Enter Logan…he lives down the block from Chloe’s most current house sitting gig, he doesn’t know who she is, all he knows is the girl walking the little yippee yorkie is HOT, and he wants her. Logan is a former fighter/reality TV star and he now owns many fitness centers and is filthy rich, but he’s at heart just a poor kid from the bad part of Detroit, and all the money in the world doesn’t make him feel like he belongs. He tries to play the playboy, two girls at one time, don’t take anything too seriously…etc…but his life is hollow until he meets Chloe, now he doesn’t know how to live without her.
    At the end of this book Logan has made a colossal mistake in mistrusting Chloe…you can’t blame the guy really because it did look bad and Chloe has never been forthright in who she really is or where she really lives because well she can’t. In order to be a proper house sitter no one can know that the house is empty, her STRICT confidentiality is something she takes pride in; no one knows the owners are gone, take care of the dog/plants exactly how she was instructed (some plants drink in the morning and some at night you see…hehehe), and above all no guests allowed in the house and she isn’t going to change her moral code for some guy.

    Really enjoyed the story and the narrator! Couldn’t wait to auto download book 2, which is the conclusion. Highly recommended!!!!

    I got this book based on a glowing review of someone I usually agree with, sadly this time we disagree. While it wasn't a bad book nothing really happened. It can be summed up by saying one girl, two alphas that agree to share the one girl for the good of the pack...but even the hot scenes weren't too hot...and the girls job is to make babies and not complain that she has to live in a cave.

    The narrator was male, therefor all the females sounded like males, and the one male sounded like a robot, which may or may not have been character based...either way it didn't work for me.

    I would pass on this book, maybe get it when it is $4.95 some time, but not worth a buy or a credit.
