    Eve’s mission is to rescue cyborgs from termination centers on Earth. In exchange, she and her sisters will go with them when they flee the planet. She is blindsided by the overwhelming attraction that draws her to one of them. He’s handsome, sexy, and she wants him, craves his touch as she has no other. She must send him to freedom but she makes him promise to wait for her. Blackie cannot forget the courageous woman who saved him. He never learned whether she died during the rebellion or just changed her mind about leaving with him but he holds her within his lonely heart.

    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!

    Miranda Puckett has failed at every job she’s ever had. Her mother just wants her to come home, join the family law firm, and settle down with Jason, the perfect lawyer boyfriend. But when Jason turns out to be a lying cheater, Miranda seizes on a job that gets her out of town: long-distance vampire transportation. Her first assignment is to drive vampire Collin Sutherland from Washington to sleepy Half Moon Hollow without incident—no small feat for a woman whom trouble seems to follow like a faithful hound dog!

    I've had this book in my library for well over a year. Shame on me for disregarding it, because it was hilarious! Great narration, quirky characters that I immediately am in love with and want to befriend, and an overall good story that I couldn't stop listening to. This seems like the beginning of a series that I will "gorge" on for sure. All the rave reviews were spot on! Bravo Molly Harper, a well deserved 5-stars!

    I feel guilty about what I'm about to say, because I ADORE Christina Lauren and literally devour every book that they've written...BUT...Beautiful Secret, left me feeling slightly underwhelmed. The best parts of the book are toward the end! Niall, although endearing, his tentativeness about every emotion, thought,or feeling became annoying. I typically melt for Brits but I couldn't get into the narration, from the male nor the female narrator, and that effected my overall perception of the book. I like to lose myself in a book, but I was all too aware for this one. It's definitely not horrific, but it was lackluster in comparison to its predecessors. Every author is entitled to a slip up....this was Christina Lauren's for sure.

They don't call him the Jury Charmer for nothing - with his Southern drawl, disarming smile, and captivating green eyes, he's a hard man to say no to. Men want to be him, and women want to be thoroughly cross-examined by him.

    Emma Chase does it again!! Overruled was a great start to this new series. I have to admit, it was a bit slow in the beginning, but things got going real good a chapter or two in. The sex was hot like fire, the characters were dynamic, hilarious, and had me doubled over laughing. Best of all was that it simply was a great love story! I highly recommend this book. If you enjoy lighthearted romance, with a touch of drama that tugs at those heartstrings, this is the book for you.

    For 14 months Puck Redhouse sat in a cell and kept his mouth shut, protecting the Silver Bastards MC from their enemies. Then he was free, and it was time for his reward - full membership in the club along with a party to celebrate. That was when he saw Becca Jones for the first time and set everything in motion. Before the night ended, he'd violated his parole and stolen her away from everything she knew.

    Story

    I'm not even sure what to say about this book. Overall, it was relatively good---gritty and raw, like most MC stories. Was it my favorite Joanna Wylde book---No. I've enjoyed Wylde's other books much, much more. I was really into the beginning; things were interesting and dramatic pretty immediately, but then it floundered somewhat. I wasn't a fan of the female narrator; her over-dramatized narration was a bit much. And there were several moments where I wanted to scream at Becca for being just a hair too naïve for my tastes. The sex was hot for sure; Puck was totally that bad boy you just melted for because he's got that one sensitive spot for his woman. And this isn't a spoiler but, Becca's mom and her hubby get the A-hole award of the year, hands down.

    I wanted this to be a 4-or 5-star, but, it just missed the mark for me somewhat. I'm still a fan of Joanna Wylde, and look forward to what's coming next.

She also knows that walking away from Zane might be the only way to keep him safe. V knows she can't trust her own heart, especially when it comes to the youngest Walker brother. But he's not the kind of man who will walk away when there is something he wants.

    I don't know why I loved this book so much but I really did! ZANE had me mesmerized with every word spoken. There were moments that I thought my skin was on fire it was so hot! This book isn't for everyone, the plot isn't super deep and some characters are a bit one-dimensional. Truth be told, I think that goes for the series, but I'm loving it so far! There are tons of characters so you've got to keep up, and they're all sleeping with each other! Lots of bi-curiosity going on, and it wasn't distasteful, in fact, it's one of the funnier and hotter aspects of the story. I thoroughly enjoyed the male narrator--he gave Zane so much life and character, I laughed out right many times throughout. If you're in the mood for a little country sass and erotica, try this one of for size, you won't be disappointed!

    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.

    This book was a pleasant surprise of awesomely hot sex and a good enough storyline to keep me hooked and purchasing book two already. I LOVE a good "we've been friends since we were kids" type of romance story, so this one was right up my alley. Kaleb and Zoey were awesome, if not a bit over dramatic in some scenes. I was reminded a bit of a Maya Banks' series, so perhaps Nicole Edwards is a protege of Banks? The female narrator left much to be desired, but Bates was good. I wouldn't suggest spending a credit but I'd definitely recommend this for a sale and for someone that really really wants some sex with a side of story!

    This is the best one so far! Again, I feel like I'm late to the party on this series and author. I won't make that mistake again, because I'm now a lifetime fan. This installment of Hard Ink was jammed with action, suspense, HOT HOT HOT sex, and I listened in one sitting. I can not wait until June when the next book is out. One thing to note, is that, I think this is ACTUALLY the 4th book as opposed to the 3rd based on a few references throughout the story. Each book could stand alone, but, I enjoy listening in sequence. I don't think I missed much or any major spoilers revealed by the incorrect sequence so I'm not too miffed.

    Great 5-star listen, and definitely worth a credit!

    The first in a sexy new series by Katy Evans, New York Times best-selling author of the REAL series... This is the story I’ve been waiting for all my life, and its name is Malcolm Kyle Preston Logan Saint. Don’t be fooled by that last name, though. There’s nothing holy about the man except the hell his parties raise. The hottest entrepreneur Chicago has ever known, he’s a man’s man with too much money to spend and too many women vying for his attention.

    Story

    I have mixed feelings. I enjoyed it, because I'm a 'bookwhore' but this seemed like a version of Bared To You with hints of 50 Shades. Then again, that's almost every contemporary romance book these days. This one was bordering on having a few too many similarities somewhat, but since it's Katy Evans, it was a well written and sexy book. I'm frustrated that it ended as it did, but I'm looking forward to book 2 because it's likely to be EPIC. I was very drawn into Malcolm Kyle Preston Logan Saint---what an awesome name!--so there's no doubt that the next phase of his and Rachel's story will be one for the romance history books. He's so mysterious. I'm looking forward to more revelations about him, his childhood, his parents, everything.

    This story felt very different and much lighter than Evans' REAL series, which I ADORED, so if you've read those and are expecting the same, don't. This is definitely worthy of a strong 4 stars.

    Five dishonored soldiers. Former Special Forces. One last mission. These are the men of Hard Ink. Ever since hard-bodied, drop-dead-charming Shane McCallan strolled into the dance club where Crystal Dean works, he's shown a knack for getting beneath her defenses. For her little sister's sake, Crystal can't get too close. Until her job and Shane's mission intersect, and he reveals talents that go deeper than she could have guessed. Shane would never turn his back on a friend in need, especially a former Special Forces teammate running a dangerous, off-the-books operation.

He's left his military life behind to become co-owner of Hard Ink Tattoo, but Becca is his ex-commander's daughter. Loyalty won't let him turn her away. Lust has plenty to do with it too. With her brother presumed kidnapped, Becca needs Nick. She just wasn't expecting to want him so much.

    I was blown away with my level of interest and pure delight in this book! Sure, when I purchased it a year ago I'd wanted to listen to it or I wouldn't have bought it, but I think I bought it in a bundle and it's just been collecting 'digital dust' :-) all this time. Shame on me because this was a fantastic listen!

    The part of the story that I didn't enjoy as much, at least initially, was the narration; there were some ups and downs in terms of overkill on the dramatics, and at certain points her pace had too many pregnant pauses, but her voice was pleasant if not a little too sweet. All that aside, I loved every minute. I was intrigued and really enjoyed the mystery & suspense with the romance. This band of dishonored soldiers are one sexy bunch on a mission to reclaim their good name and maybe get a little love and nookie while doing so. Nick and Becca will make you swoon, like, eye rolling swoon; I loved it! I have a feeling this is going to be amongst my list of favorite series for sure. Definitely credit worthy!
