    The story was typical: Boy asks girl to the prom after breaking up with his girlfriend, girl says yes, boy takes her up to "make-out point", kisses her senseless and then walks away. Many years later boy returns as a doctor and decides that he loves girl and wants to see what they can do to make it work. Girl is hesitant because he broke her heart all those years ago and everyone seems to know it but him. DUH!!

    All in all the flow of the story was smooth. The characters were likeable.

    Bad boy professional motocross rider Jesse Morrison knows how to leave an impression. Except lately, it has mostly been bad impressions. Frustrated and wounded, he surrounds himself with women, booze, and drugs. After getting kicked out of his brother's house, he relocates to California for the summer to crash at his uncle's place. In Santa Monica, Jesse meets the one woman who can lead him back on the right path: beautiful 22-year-old, Niki Milani. Only one problem: She is not interested.

    Blake Coleman is old enough to know that acting on impulse causes nothing but a heap of trouble. But when trouble's a western-hat-wearing blonde with slim legs that go on forever, what's a man to do? Wanting the sweet girl next door is just wrong. The responsible thing to do is keep his hands off. Jaxi has other plans for Blake's hands - and his heart. She may have once considered him a big brother, but that was a long time ago.

    Story

    I was kind of wishy washy with this book. I found it hard to deal with the dynamics of the relationship between the leading female and all of the brothers! I get it that she was in love with Blake and that she really wanted to be all that she thought he needed. She took classes to make her the best ranchers wife? What? I liked the fact that she went after what she wanted, but was disappointed about how weak the leading male character was.

    Ellie is horrified to discover the pharmaceutical company she works for is doing illegal experiments, splicing human and animal DNA, creating exotic new species. One such "experiment" captures her heart and she’ll do anything to save him - even if he hates her for it. Fury has never known compassion or love. He's spent his life in a cell, chained and abused by humans. The one woman he allowed himself to trust betrayed him. He vows to end her life but when she's finally in his grasp, harming her is the last thing he wants to do to the sexy little human.

    I really like how this series is starting out. The characters and storyline are well written. Even with all the stuff these New Species characters go through, they still have it in them to love. It's horrible the things that they went through in the labs and the stuff that they are still dealing with when they are "freed". I found myself wanting to be there to destroy the labs and the people that did these awful experiments on these people. I look forward to other books in this series.

    Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this. Evelyn Thomas' plans for celebrating her 21st birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.One thing is certain, being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.

    This was one of the best books I've listened to! The narrator was fun, engaging and I loved her voice transition from one character to the other. The story itself was WONDERFUL. Guy meets girl, get pissed off when they get married in Vegas and she doesn't remember because she was trashed, they try to make it work, but he has issues......Good start to the book, right? Right! The story line isn't as easy as that though. The characters are well developed and leave you wanting to learn more about them. The insecurities that the characters have make them believable.

    Going to get the next book now.....can't wait to see what happens to Mal. :)

    This book is a hot, steamy, fast paced menage book. It was well written and easy to follow, the characters were interesting and easy to like. The story line was interesting....A little town in the middle of no where, not a lot of women available. There were multiple family units that had multiple men to one woman and others that were just m/m.

    This book started out raw. The first sex (rape) scene was described in real detail. The rest of the sex scenes, not so much. I guess that in order to set the tone for the story, it kinda had to be that way.

    That being said.......I loved the book. It was engaging and I LOVED the characters. I actually laughed at the Rose sisters ever time they got involved in something. I would laugh out loud at the antics of those 3. I loved the portrayal of the small southern town that protects their own, the town's grapevine and willingness to help a stranger.

    Audrey Petty's always been the responsible one. The good twin. Successful, dependable, and trustworthy-that's Audrey. She'd be the perfect girlfriend for her childhood crush, billionaire Cade Archer...except that she's pretty sure she's not even on his radar. But when fate (and her chaotic twin) come together, Audrey finds out that she'll be spending the next month with Cade at his remote cabin retreat. It's a dream come true... Until she meets her worst nightmare.

    Loved this book. Reece comes across as a jerk and a playboy, which he is. However he turns into a pretty great guy once the right girl comes along. The things that he makes Audrey do to get her into his arms are very entertaining. His whole world shifts when he realizes that the one thing he wants, he can't have because she is in love with someone else.

    The story is well written and the characters are well developed. The heartache that they each go through is felt through the words that the author wrote. I look forward to reading additional books in the series.

    In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.

    I really enjoyed this book! The narrator was fabulous and really made the story come alive. The way that the author wrote the characters had me laughing out loud a lot!

    The story is about a woman named Bliss who is trying to win a TV show competition for cards. Her attitude comes out in everyone that she writes (Hallsnark). The male role is played by Drake. He's a fireman with an added bonus of being fire proof because he's a Dragon.

    One night Bliss's building catches on fire and Drake is on the scene. After he brings her to safety, she convinces him to go back in and rescue her laptop from her apartment. He does, but gets in trouble for it. While he's on suspension, Bliss drops off one of her Hallsnark cards as a thank you and an apology.

    When she takes a job as a part-time cocktail waitress and moves into the apartment above the bar to make ends meet and have a place to live. Drake comes in with flowers for her and gets another Dragon that had her eyes on him jealous. She starts setting fires all around the city so that she can drive everyone crazy and then kidnaps Bliss. Bliss gets rescued by a God and the other Dragon is pissed!

    I'm not going to ruin the ending of the book. It made me laugh out loud. I loved Bliss's scene of humor.
