    Story
    Would you listen to Logan's Acadian Wolves again? Why?

    This is an audio book that I think I could listen to repeatedly. The narrators voice was smooth, silky, and definitely brought the characters to life.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the heat of this story. I adore the relationships between different characters, the developing emotions and how well they are expressed through both the written and the narrated version of this story.


    What about Ryan West’s performance did you like?

    Ryan West did an amazing job with the narration of this story. He captured each character with different tones, accent and demeanor. He made me remember why I am so in love with this book and the characters in it. He brought this story to life in a way I did not think was possible.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Once you go wolf, you never go back!

    Attacked as a young adult, Jewel is left scarred and alone. She applies to the 1Night Stand service, believing no one can see past her appearance to love her. But she doesn't expect to be sent to a space station where her date could be any number of unusual alien species.

    Story

    I was gifted this Audible Copy in exchange for an honest review.
    Jule is a girl with destroyed self esteem who wants nothing more than what every other person craves...love. She has opted to try a dating service to have her needs met since she has been unable to hold the attention of any person.

    This story is a set in a mix of earth and a space ship where multiple alien creatures live. Jule is transported to the space station for her "date" and is introduced to a whole new world. Her eyes are opened to a future she did not see possible.

    While a novella, this is a complete story. The characters each have their own quirks and the reader is not left feeling confused. It is GLTB, which is not a problem for me as a reader, but the whole thing was bland for me in the fact that Jule spends most of the book having a pity party. I just struggle with weak women.
    The narrator did well with separating out characters but at times used the voices of the character when she should have been using a steady flow voice for background story.

    Half-shifter Shaya Critchley may hold a submissive role in her wolf pack, but the petite redhead refuses to let an Alpha male interfere in her life. Furious and humiliated after her mate refused to claim her, she runs off to hide among the humans. Why wait around for an Alpha male to love her when he’d obviously prefer to ignore her?

    Story

    Oh my goodness. If I was not already in love with Suzanne Wright's writing, this one would have snared me. This book was hot, suspenseful and an amazing read. There was a good amount of witty sarcasm which is always a plus. I love the dominance of these wolves and how they all are such fierce protectors of each other and their hearts.

    I used the whispersync version of this novel and the narrator added a great amount of draw to this story. She was able to make sure that each character had a clear personality through her voice. Awesome!

    Ever wonder how much your life would change if you won a million dollars? Well, that fantasy is about to become reality for one lucky winner of the new reality game show The Haunting. Six people will enter the contest, but not everyone will win. In fact there can only be one winner. A drug dealer, an exotic dancer, a drug addict, an entrepreneur, a district attorney, and a rich kid are each desperate in some way.

    I am still panting hours after listening to this novel. I have found a third narrator that I am in love with. The tone of his voice and how he relays the story is phenomenal. The story that he is telling is written so well that I could not put it down. From suspenseful twists to heated romance, this book has it all! this is money well spent!

    Petúr always knew he and his brothers-in-arms were different. Something more. Something not human. Yet, he never expected to find out the truth of their origins, nor fall for a human woman whose father was set to destroy Neverland. Ever since she was a child, Wyndi dreamed of an angel with eyes of the purest gold, although she never really believed such a man existed until she met the hauntingly beautiful Petúr of the lost boys.

    Story

    Rise of the Lost Prince has potential to be a great story. I have two major issues with this novel. One is that it is written so simplistic that I had a hard time staying interested in the story. I also struggled with connecting to the characters as a result. The second issue I had was that I am just not crazy about this narrator. His slight lisp is distracting, his tones are not that varied from character to character with the exception of his growls. I am sad to only give this three fangs.

The only problem is, she detests the prince's selfish and arrogant ways, preferring to spend time with his personal aide, a man who stirs her desires in ways she never imagined possible with his radiant blue eyes and smoldering lips. And oh, the way he touches her.

    Story

    I loved the fantasy of this book. Although it was a novella, you get a mostly complete story with great detail. We have Earth dying and a princess from a foreign land who is said will save Earth upon her arrival. From the details of the other land to the fated marriage this is a great read. I liked the bits of angst built in of forbidden love while they lasted.

    As far as the narration, I am not crazy about him. I think that I would have much rather read than audio'd this one!

    Roxana Nights was late to another gig, thanks to her first love and drummer. It's been years since she left Jordan, but he won't let her go. Then she hears a voice that pulls her under a spell and changes her whole world. Trevor Malone just moved to Seattle with his band. Music is his only passion, until he lays eyes on Roxana. He's never felt anything as strong as the pull to her. Now he needs to find a way to introduce her to his world.

    Story

    Roxy is in a hot little band but one of her bandmates is also her ex. Jordan has made her miserable more in their relationship than he has made her happy. She has known him her whole life, but there is something changed in him, turning him into a complete douche.

    As she walks into the club for her set, she is completely entranced by Trevor. His accent rolls off of her and she cannot get enough. Trevor sets his sights on her as well and they are both forever changed.

    I read this book in kindle before the audio and I will say I loved it more this time. I was able to pick up on so much that I missed before. The magnet that pulls Others together is always hidden below the surface.

    John Lane was magnificent in this rendition. His accent gave me heated chills and I found myself rewinding the audio just to hear his gravelly tone of Joey. His Irish lilt is so sexy it hurts. I have decided that I need to be his regular stalker and have him make a tape of sexy phrases that he can only say in Irish Accent so that I can have it as my go to when I am having a bad day.

    Brandy writes so well, linking past books to the present. Not only that but she ties Edenton to Seattle in a way that is not forced but rather seamless. Amazing!

    Story

    This is an interesting idea for a book. Three stories of naughtiness make up this novella. All three "tales" are of the kinky nature involving domination and submission.

    Gwin and Tristan are super hot together and really deserve a full length novella.

    The neighbors were somewhat bland to me, yes BDSM was involved but I found the narration of them both annoying.

    As far as the computer programmer seeking a hot interlude. This was also just Okay for me. I found the story lacking passion and angst which left it just blah.

    I am fairlly sure if most of my "issues" with this novel were based on the narrator. I found that during most of his female parts of narration he sounded like a whiny petulant brat. It was not really sexy, more grating on the nerves.

    With powerful abilities gained from the Ang'dora and Tristan back by her side, Alexis thinks she's ready for the next challenge - protecting her son from what appears to be the inevitable. But she has so much to learn about her powers, her new world, and the people in it. Nothing is what it seems to be on the surface, including the Amadis. Power-hungry politicians comprise the council and make impossible demands. A traitor lurks among them all, inciting trouble that could destroy the Amadis and, ultimately, humanity.

    Story

    Devotion continues us on the path of Alexis and Tristan. Alexis has started to practice her newly developed skills since the Ang'Dora and trying to come to terms with the stuff Tristan was put through during his disappearance. There is a traitor among them and it has been challenging to figure out just who is behind the treachery. The council is supposed to support the women but has left them reliant on each other.
    This book is full of twists and turns leaving you at the end with a cliff-hanger that you are not expecting.

    For the most part, I really enjoy this narrator. The one issue I have is that Alexis is now and adult and still at times sounds like a petulant brat.

He meets his wealthy father's goals as both the quarterback for the famous SCU football team and a business major, but secretly he attends art school and longs to live as a painter. And he's gay. But if he can win the coveted Milton Scholarship for art, he'll be able to break from his father at the end of his senior year.

    Story

    Will is a rough and tough quarterback who is not ready to rid himself off all the crap holding him back. He is living his life for everyone else and denying his most basal needs. Although he has great friends and a rich family, he has to hide what really makes him tick, his art and his love for being a bottom.
    Noah is a struggling artist that has had a hard knock life all the way around, but a survivor. He does not let anyone or anything steer his choices in his life and certainly doesn't hide behind societal walls.
    The two are thrown together by a masters level art class where they are both vying for the same prestigious scholarship.
    Life is not going to be the same for either one, but is Noah going to give Will the push he needs to come out of the closet?

    What I liked about this story was that Noah is such a strong gay man. He knows what he wants, he has goals and he does not let anyone push him around. I liked that Will had such strong friends that were willing to pick him up and even lie for him if it meant he could keep up a persona that he really did not see any value in.

    I thought the romance felt bland and even at times forced. I did not like some of the inuendos the author used to describe the sex scenes in this one, frequently laughing out loud thinking, is this the stuff they really say? Spunk and sweat? The author also used one word way too many times in this book.

    As for the narration, the narrator had a slight lisp which made his reading of this book distracting at times. I was not crazy about his narration for these characters finding him not to be as convincing as other narrators have been. This one was just okay for me. 3 fangs from Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock.

    Jess knew her life would never move forward if she remained a part of Gregory's pack. Some alphas don't know how to take care of their wolves. She had managed Gregory's bar for years, but she knew he would never sell it to her. After one giant mistake, he went from bad to worse. As a psychic she knew it was a downward spiral.

    Taking her future in her own hands, she contacted the alpha in Edenton. He was happy to sell the empty bar that no one had the time or desire to renovate, much less run.

    Would you consider the audio edition of New Beginnings to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed both versions. You tend to get different things out of each. when you are reading a book in paperback/ebook you get images and sounds in your head of the characters. Audio books tend to not line up with what you have created, but make it fun.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the dynamic between jess and slater. I love that they push each other to be equals and are so devoted to what they feel.


    What does Kelley Hazen Storyteller Productions bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She changes voices for each character which is a plus, but she has a habit of getting high pitched for multiple characters which can get a little overwhelming.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
