    Story

    After the major "cliffhanger" in book one of this series I was seriously upset about how that book abruptly ended, so I was excited to get this second installment. I have conflicting views about this book similar to that of the first, it seems like a young adult story with very adult overtones and that's not usually my thing but the storyline is decent. This installment felt like chapter after chapter of an after school special...but the R-rated version. It's a bit overly fraught with what seems like teen angst and poor decisions. This time around Blair and her heartthrob deal with some tough life circumstances but find a way to deal ultimately. Overall, the first book was better than this second, but I did enjoy the majority of it and would purchase others in the series and from this author.

    Gwendolyn Pierce has a secret. A big secret. No one knows that the gourd artist is really the missing Grape Princess - the wine heiress who ran away 14 years before. And that's the way Gwen likes it. No paparazzi recording her every mistake, no stern family disapproving of her life. She has her gourd shop in Laurel Heights and lives in peaceful bliss.

    Indy Savage is a former wild child (okay, maybe not so "former") and current used-bookstore owner. Lee Nightingale is a former bad boy and now runs a private investigation service. Toss together a quiet barista with a not-so-lawful side-business, a crazy Vietnam Vet, a pothead, a drag queen, family and friends who will not mind their own business, a few stun guns, and a bag of diamonds, and mix them all up with some shootings, a high-speed chase and car bombs exploding, then hang on for your first wild Rock Chick ride.

    Story

    This was a fun book; it had all the characteristics I've come to know and love about Kristen Ashley books--humor, a little danger, and a whole heap of sexy alpha males to go around. [Dream Man series--check it out!] Rock Chick delves into the life of another character introduced in the DM series; Indy and Lee were childhood mates, and for me, that made their eventual romance one of the sweetest. All the mystery and intrigue that made Lee such a badboy was the perfect balance to Indy's carefree "all out there, take life by the you know what, and LIVE!" attitude.

    There were a ton of characters in this story so I can see how there are several spin-offs. I would recommend this for a credit or outright purchase. My one concern is regarding the next installment. There's a snippet of the next book at the end and I was almost asleep after listening--BIG SNORE--I hope that was just a fluke because I really enjoyed this first one and highly recommend it!

    What does Drew Evans have to say next? Find out in this short story, filled with his sexy charm, unique advice, and hilarious one-liners. Marriage: The final frontier. Steven went first. He was kind of our test subject. Like those monkeys that NASA sent off into space in the '50s, all the while knowing they’d never make it back. And now another poor rocket is ready to launch. But this isn't just any posh New York wedding. You've seen my friends, you've met our families, you know you're in for a treat.

    All he wants is one night to worship her. No feelings, no commitment, nothing but pleasure. Every defense mechanism Livy has adopted during her solitary life is at risk of being obliterated by this confounding man. He's obnoxious but well-mannered. He's a gentleman but aloof. He's passionate but emotionless. Yet the fascination is so powerful, Livy can't deny him - or herself. M awakens something in Livy, something deep and addictive that she never knew existed - and that she fears only he can satisfy.

    Story

    I didn't bother to read the description of this book before pre-ordering with my credit. Didn't feel it was necessary because future books by Jodi Ellen Malpas became an instant purchase after THIS MAN. I know that series wasn't for everyone but, I couldn't get enough of "Central Jesse Cloud Nine"! Of course I compared ONE NIGHT to THIS MAN, and initially I thought, hmmm ok, good effort but not as intense and raucous, which ultimately was perfect--One Night was like a slow burn and I loved it.

    As much as I enjoyed this book, I wasn't sure where the story was going for the longest, I didn't understand Miller's fascination with Olivia, and for a minute, my favorite character was octogenarian Nan! It was just at the point when these two finally got together for the one night, that all Miller's cards started to show and it just got better and better.

    Don't be deterred by the similarities to THIS MAN; its different enough to put it in it's own class of sexiness that I highly recommend if you're into 'dark romance' as I like to coin it.

    As a boy, Thronos, prince of Skye Hall, loved Lanthe, a mischievous Sorceri girl who made him question everything about his Vrekener clan. But when the two got caught in the middle of their families’ war, tragedy struck, leaving Thronos and Lanthe bitter enemies. Though centuries have passed, nothing can cool his seething need for the beautiful enchantress who scarred his body - and left an even deeper impression on his soul.

    Story

    This much anticipated book in the IAD series was nothing less than perfect! This isn't a spoiler, but there's a line in the book referencing an "EPIC STORY" and I agree 100%. I thoroughly enjoy how characters from previous stories have little cameos, and you get a sneak peak into how their lives have evolved. I LOVED Thronos and Lanthe, they had the kind of love that was truly everlasting, with all the ups and downs that come with it. Dark Skye gives you action, romance, humor and more, and left me with a huge grin from ear to ear; I'm eagerly awaiting what happens next! This was an amazing read/listen that I highly recommend. It's best to start with the first one in the series...they're all phenomenal so it's well worth the time and credit to listen to each one.

She steals his heart and makes him whole. When she abandons him it fractures his world and he knows no woman can ever take her place. Though many seek his attention, he is cold and unattainable.

    L Dohner is the queen of shifter sexiness! Mating Brand is the 3rd in the wolf shifter series, and like it's companion books it was hot, super romantic and pretty funny, which was an added bonus. I'm also a major fan of the narrator, her voice fits the characters really well; I almost forget she's a woman when she does the male voices, and that's saying something! If you're looking for a lot of depth and realistic situations, this isn't the book for you, but it's great for strictly sexy entertainment purposes. I highly recommend this book (series), and happily spend a credit for it!

    Greyson King. My boyfriend. My friend. My protector. He's the reason I wake up every morning with a smile on my face, and the reason I fall asleep limp, worn out, and aching for his warm arms around me. When we make love, he says my name like it means something. Like I mean something. He lied. His name is Greyson King, but his alias is Zero. There's zero trace of him, he has zero past, and now I know that with him, I will have zero future.

    Rogue was all kinds of yummy fantasticalness!! I've officially added Grayson King to my list of the "hottest and baddest of bad boy book boyfriends". If you've read Remy, Mine & Real, wait 'til you get a gander at Grayson! This story of his and Melanie's love affair was dramatic, intense and sexual, with a touch of suspense. The banter between these two was witty and sarcastic, but endearing as they both tried to keep from being to vulnerable. Unfortunately, I'm not a fan of Shayna Thibodeaux's narration, it's like listening to a poorly delivered spoken word/poetry session--not my cup of tea for 7-9 hours. The saving grace was the male narrator and the overall storyline. Grayson was definitely the gritty dark version of prince charming, and he will rock your world! I highly recommend this book, and would spend a credit on it in a heartbeat.

    Redemption isn't a word Jim Heron knows much about - his specialty is revenge, and to him, sin is all relative. But everything changes when he becomes a fallen angel and is charged with saving the souls of seven people from the seven deadly sins. Vin diPietro long ago sold his soul to his business, and he's good with that - until fate intervenes in the form of a tough-talking Harley-riding, self-professed savior.

    JR Ward is easily in my list of top favorites! I was smitten with my first introduction to her writing with the Black Dagger Brotherhood and I'm so glad I've got yet another addicting series in Fallen Angels.

    Covet, the first story in the battle between good and evil was awesome! There was a bit of suspense and mystery, coupled with other worldly fantasy & romance that I really enjoyed. The characters are intriguing and left me excited about what's to come. Ward blends the human/paranormal thing like a pro. The narration was good, although I compared it to the BDB the whole time expecting the voice characterization range that Jim Frangione had, nonetheless, Dove did a respectable job.

    I'm all in with this series, and highly recommend it as a total credit worthy purchase!

    Story

    Wow, the reviews on this are at both ends of the spectrum and I suppose I'm right in the middle on Accidental Seal. It was like the author only had cheesy B-movies as a frame of reference and stereotypical locker room banter as a sample dialogue. There were moments of potential because the story itself was good but before a chapter was concluded, it would hover dangerously close to "oh c'mon!!! seriously?!?!" It took me forever to finish it, and that's completely atypical for me. The hot sex was probably the best part of the book, but then here comes the narrator with a voice the equivalent of a robot with really bad accents. I briefly considered getting the next book in the series, but, I can't take the narrator and the amateur hour writing.

    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.

    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!
