    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.

    Smiley!!! What a great book! Super funny, full of drama and suspense, and as usual, sexy, sexy, and a little more sexy, which is the New Species way. A new threat arises against the New Species and Smiley is caught right in the middle of it all. If you're into this series, this one won't disappoint!

    When an angry, heartbroken girl is forced to be near her rocker ex-boyfriend, only time will tell if the fire between them will consume them both. Pandora, the gothic friend of Brooke (Real, Mine, Remy) and Melanie (Rogue), thought that getting her heart broken by her bad boy rocker ex could only happen once. But now, he's back in town with the biggest concert of the year. Pandora hates him so much that she gets Melanie to come with her and play a prank on him at his gig.

    Story

    It kind of breaks my heart when a favorite author releases a book that just doesn't meet the standard they've set with their other books...RIPPED just didn't do it for me--from the female narrator, to the emotionally void Pandora. I LOVED all of the preceding books in the Real Series--love, love, love--and will be a Katy Evans fan for life, but, I was left a bit unenthused with RIPPED.

    Overall, it was decent, but not a 'rush to purchase and listen' at all. My biggest issue was with Pandora, and how the fact that she was literally a walking manifestation of bitterness & pain, made it challenging for me to connect and like her character. The 'contract/deal' that reconnects her with Makenna seemed too weak of a storyline to carry the weight of all that was truly going on with them from the past and potential future. All in all, Evans served up hot hot sexy scenes, and created a super smoking hot rock star male lead character that I would certainly by a concert ticket to see--Makenna Jones!

    The latter 1/3 of the story was truly the best for me, very touching, and reminded me of why I've enjoyed Katy Evans' books in the past. This is not a review to say don't get this book, but, I'd likely wait until it's on sale.

    Darkness is definitely in the top 5 of the best stories from the New Species series! I'd been waiting for Darkness ever since he was introduced several books ago. He wasn't even a prominent character in the preceding books, but, just the cameos of him left an impression. His sarcastic broody nature throughout the book, made me laugh out loud sometimes; and Kat was just the type of woman to take him on. They're officially one of my favorite 'book couples'. The storyline was intriguing and kept my interest throughout. Overall, Laurann Dohner does an excellent job of writing hilarious and sexy dialogue, that seems to be the staple with New Species. Great narration, even though there's not much variation, New Species series is a stand out for me. I highly recommend this book and series!

    Keeping others safe is what Caleb Montgomery does. He's never had a problem taking on an assignment, whether it was during his dangerous SEAL days or his most recent job of training war mercenaries. But being assigned to keep Brynna Vincent and her adorable daughters, Maddie and Josie, safe from an unknown threat has thrown Caleb off his axis. Hot for the tall brunette since she came back to town more than a year ago, being close to her day in and day out is cracking Caleb's resolve to keep his hands off her gorgeous body and his head in the mission.

    This one is for sure one of my favorites in this series. Caleb was making me feel some kind of way in book 2, so I knew without a doubt I would enjoy him falling! What a great love story! I thought it was well written, and focused on circumstances that have touched almost all of us. There were moments in the story where my mouth gaped open in shock, or I found myself tearing up a bit; I loved every minute of this story. Even the horrible male narrator didn't take away from the good storyline, hot sexy scenes, and the totally adorable twins that literally stole the show!

    If you're new to this author or series, start from the beginning, skip book 4 if you're feeling cheeky, and dive straight into the SAFE arms of Caleb 'hot as sin' Montgomery!

She's already learned about loving a celebrity the hard way and isn't signing up for another lesson. Every time Sam gives Leo attitude, he wants to knock that chip off her fragile little shoulder. What the hell did he ever do to her, anyway? He's not used to women treating him like he's poisonous, and he isn't about to let her run away every time he gets close. He's had enough of people running away to last him a lifetime...when this one runs, he gives chase.

    Story

    Ugggghhhhh, why?!?! I was going along thoroughly enjoying this series and then one of the worst male narrators suddenly has more lines than just a cameo like he did in the preceding stories. I gave two stars for performance mainly because I've been enjoying Jennifer Mack, and I'd prefer this series stick to only her narrating. Without her, we're looking at a strong -1 stars for sure.

    Rock w/Me was a decent read/listen; I liked Leo's character and he really made the book for me. Sam was kind of forgettable in the first three books so I wasn't as into her, the addition of Leo helped make the story tolerable but, overall this one was a little bit of a throw away. The storyline was somewhat weak so some scenes and emotions were just unwarranted.

    I hate writing a primarily negative review, especially for a series and author that I would still recommend. This series is a definite download for the hopeless romantics, you will love it, but honestly, you could probably skip this particular one and not miss too much.

So when he turns his charms on his sister’s sexy rocker-chick friend Meg, he’s not only turned down, but met with open hostility, piquing his curiosity and libido.

    I'm totally stuck on this series, and I'm not even trying to listen to anything else these days! I've listened to one after the other and I've been a smitten kitten each time. My only criticism of this particular story was the leading lady--she was such a tough chic, it bordered on being too much because Will was ever the gentleman throughout, and I just wanted her to give in to him. This series is hitting all my buttons. The stories are hot, funny, and just overall good love stories that make you feel good and wish you had one of these hot hunks to keep you warm!

    Jules Montgomery is too busy and content with her life to worry about a man, especially one Nate McKenna. If growing up with four brothers has taught her anything, she knows to stay away from sexy men with tattoos and motorcycles. That goes double if he's your boss. During the one incredible night they shared, he violated the no fraternization policy...among other things, and it won't happen again. Jules won't risk her career for mind-blowing sex, no matter how much her body and her damn heart keep arguing with her.

    My title for this review is exactly what Nate and Jules are together. This was a great story in this series, just as good as the first but had a bit more wicked sarcasm between the two lovers and I just eat up that kind of witty banter. The love scenes were hot and steamy to say the least, but the romance between the two is what kept me listening and eager to give this a high rating. I'm officially a Kristen Proby SuperFan!

    I'm not sure what took me so long to purchase and listen to this book! I've seen it popping up as an option for the genre I love, time and time again, with great reviews. Shame on me is all I can say. This book hit all my sweet spots--it was super hot and sexy--like E.R.O.T.I.C., but, romantic, funny, and endearing, with characters that I can't wait to find out more about. This story is a great beginning to a new series that I will surely gorge myself on with a marathon listening session.

    Initially, I wasn't sure about the narrator---her voice is kind of like really sugary candy but was well suited for Natalie's sweet and sassy manner. Luke and Natalie have a love affair that made me swoon--and I'm so not a swooner--but there I was, swooning while driving in my car, totally loving these two together. Overall, I'd highly recommend this book for those who want to drown themselves in love, romance and total ear melting eroticism. I loved it!
