    When it comes to sex, Ash McIntyre has always explored his wilder side - extreme and uncompromising. He demands control. And he prefers women who want it like that. Then Ash meets Josie, who seems immune to his charms and his wealth. Intrigued, he begins a relentless pursuit, determined she won’t be the one who got away. He never imagined the one woman to tell him no would be the only woman who’d ever drive him to the edge of desire.

    Story

    I was highly anticipating this third installment in the Breathless series so I was perplexed when in the first few chapters I had mixed reviews. Where the story excelled was in the love scenes...hot as usual...excluding the multiple statements of "GET THERE!!" :-) Also, I enjoyed the other characters that were introduced, and sub-plots that unfolded which gave the story more depth. I understand that this was going to be another "hot dominant guy" meets girl and falls head over heels, but Ash's 'lines' and responses to Josie didn't feel authentic somehow and initially the story felt predictable, but improved drastically about halfway through it. Maya Banks is a great author so I remain a fan and can't wait for future books of this same genre from her.

    Valentine Jones has never been good at following rules, especially the one that matters most: following the family tradition of being a matchmaker. She's tried, but she happens to suck at it. So when her mother swoops in to help, Valentine is determined to prove she doesn't need a babysitter. Enter Ethan "The Predator" Hunter, ex-fighter and all-around hunk. Career on hold because of injury, his sole focus is to get back in the ring. He has no interest in the people - until Valentine sets her matchmaking sights on him.

    Story

    First of all, anyone named Valentine totally belongs in a story like these Kate Perry books. Tamed By You is a story of the matchmaker meeting her match. Ethan and Valentine on the surface are total opposites but are drawn together through a series of random moments that began back in book 6. I liked everything about Ethan--strong, brooding and sexy--Yum!
    The only negative was Valentine's mom; such a buzzkill. Also, I wouldn't have minded if the story was a little longer. Things felt rushed for the first time in the series. Despite this, I will certainly buy the next one, and the next one after that. Fingers crossed book 8 comes to Audible soon!

    Story

    I love the world that Kate Perry has created in Laurel Heights, with great characters that are funny and intriguing. Sweet on You had a lot of sass--the main characters are 'tough cookies' - pun intended (Daniela's a BAKER!) Get it? :-) And of course the secondary story within the primary storyline was equally as good! That's what's so great about this series, you're kind of getting a two for one almost and neither leaves you lacking. I highly recommend this book to anyone that is in love with love...the path to these characters' HEA is a great journey.

    My one criticism is not so much about the story content but about the fact that after books 6 & 7, there's book 10! If it's even remotely possible to get books 8 & 9 on Audible it would be awesome!

    Story

    This series continues to pleasantly surprise me. Dream of You was hot, romantic and really funny. Lola and Sam are my favorite characters so far, their love story was made even better with the addition of Sam's daughter Madison. The stories in this series are short and sweet, so things move along pretty quickly, plus the price is right--definitely a bargain! It's the perfect mini-escape where an HEA is pretty much guaranteed. I love it!

    Story

    Even one of the worst characters of the Cyborg series so far...Blackie...deserves love. I cringed at his name back in some of the first books of the series where he's introduced, and cringed even more at how he was with women and his overall mean attitude. I couldn't believe he would have a story of his own! I certainly wasn't interested, but, I knew that Laurann Dohner would have to come up with someone really special with the capacity to love even the coldest and cruelest of Cyborgs, and that could only be the love that man's best friend can give you! Eve, a canine/human, meets Blackie as a prisoner before the Cyborgs free themselves, and totally bonds with him. Fast-forward to present day, and the two reconnect, opening a whole new world for Blackie--one that includes humility, decency, emotion, and understanding. It's awesome that even in an erotic romance novel there's a moral to the story!

    These Cyborg stories are very much 'on the nose', and that's one of the things I love about the series. The misunderstandings between the characters have me in stitches, and the love scenes have me panting! Blackie and Eve fall head over heels HARD for each other, and although I kind of hated him in some of the previous stories he's appeared in, this book redeems him completely. If you're a fan of fantasy and paranormal erotic romance, the Cyborg series should be in your library for sure. Keep 'em coming Laurann!

    Leaving Hannah was the biggest mistake of Marco's life - something he has deeply regretted for years. So when fate reunites them, he refuses to let her go without a fight. Determined to make her his, Marco pursues Hannah, reminding her of all the reasons they're meant to be together. But just when Marco thinks they're committed to a future together, Hannah makes a discovery that unearths the secret pain she's been hiding from him - a secret that could tear them apart before they have a real chance to start over again.

    Story

    On Dublin Street is one of my favorite favorite series, and it pains me when I'm not 'over the moon' about one of the books, but, sadly this is one of those times. To be fair, India Place WAS good, it really was, however, I think the narration left a little to be desired--specifically, with Marco's character. Also, some aspects of the story, or maybe it was solely the narration, were overdramatized for my tastes, which is atypical for this series. Every book prior to this one has been pretty spot on.

    This was a sweet coming of age romance, that, as per usual, had some very intense situations interspersed throughout the story. Hannah finally gets her Marco, and boy do they have a landfill of emotions and baggage to sift through before they find their HEA. It was nice that the entire Dublin St. gang has a cameo and it was nice to 'catch up' with the happy couples. I hope that there will be a 6th book, and even more from this series. Despite feeling rather neutral about this story in particular, I highly recommend the series---it's a credit well spent, and overall, the stories are great and will be repeat listens for sure!

Now he's shadowing her in New York-all seven-plus feet of him - determined to protect her from stalkers who want to use her in shifter dogfights. Even if he has to drag her off to an isolated Maine town where the only neighbors are other bears almost as crazy as he is....

    Story

    Something about this series keeps my interest, but, I'm not exactly sure! :-) I am not the biggest fan of the narrator, but she seems to get stellar reviews; I suppose its like eating asparagus or sushi---it's definitely an acquired taste. This 5th installment was one of the funnier stories, which was unexpected, because goofy Blayne didn't make a big impression on me in the previous book so I was unsure about her story. I was pleasantly surprised though; her man, Bo or 'BOLD', was the scene winner from beginning to end, he was a great big ole bad attitude polar lion hybrid, and the two of them together were pretty darn hilarious. As they took on the bear country in an effort to keep Blayne safe from hybrid hunters, the hijinks were in full effect. Despite the so-so narration, this series is like paranormal romantic slap-stick comedy that will entertain you while making you melt just a little at the sweetness of it all.

    Playing house was never so much fun - or so confusing. With her boss on an extended honeymoon, Caroline’s working crazy-long hours to keep the interior design company running - especially since she’s also the lead designer for the renovation of a gorgeous old hotel. And with Simon, her hotshot photographer boyfriend, gallivanting all over the world for his job, the couple is heavy-duty into "absence makes the heart grow fonder" mode. No complaints about the great reunion sex, though!

    For those of you that enjoy your romance with a side of shtick and a pinch of predictable, Alice Clayton is the author for you. After Wallbanger, I wasn't sure where things could go with Simon & Caroline, but, I liked the direction of their journey in this second book. The narration was a bit of a distraction as usual--breathy at times and completely overacted in other moments; however, it's the writing--that sass, humor, and superbly written 'smex' that will make me purchase any other book in this series without question.

    On Dublin Street was my introduction to Samantha Young and the crew of Americans and Scots that made me want to pack my bags and head to Edinburgh! Although I'm 5 books deep in this series, I adore Joss & Braden, so it didn't matter to me that I was listening completely out of sequence!

    Joss and Braden's novella was exactly what I expected--funny, romantic, hot & sexy, and the 'more' that you longed for at the end of Dublin St. I'd purchase this one outright as opposed to a credit, but any of the books within the series are definitely credit worthy.

    This was such an awesome book! Everything about the BDB makes me want to sit back and listen for hours, just one book after the other. The King was just what I expected and then some. I listened in practically one sitting, because I'm totally hooked on everything about Wrath, the brotherhood, the shellan's, you name it, I'm obsessed with all things BDB! The subplots in the King seem to be an indication of potential spin-offs, and I really hope that's the case because there's a plethora of characters that were just as interesting as the brotherhood. Overall, this is one of my favorite series, from narration, to the characters, to the fact that this is the only series that I could literally start listening to again from book 1. Absolute perfection!

    Demon from the Dark was quite possibly one of the most erotically delicious and romantic stories in the IAD series from Cole. Malkolm was like a walking hormone waiting to slake his passion for Carrow from the moment he saw her, and it just got hotter and hotter from there. I loved every minute! The hotness of this story was just the icing on the cake, because you will fall in love with these character's hearts and determination to get through the dark parts of life, guaranteed. If you're already a fan of this series you know that all the stories are leading to something really big; some of what's revealed in this story and the more recent books, gives you a bird's eye view, and I can't wait. If you're new to KC and the IAD series, your time and credit will never be wasted!
