    I never thought this could happen to me. I never imagined one chance meeting on the eve of my eighteenth birthday could change my life so completely. Now I belong to him. To Julian. To a man who is as ruthless as he is beautiful - a man whose touch makes me burn. A man whose tenderness I find more devastating than his cruelty.

    Story

    Most "DARK' romances, are not usually all that dark... Well not my kinda of dark. There needs to be a level of violence with a dark romance... If you fall in-love with the H/h who is supposed to be the bad guy, in like chapter 2, well that just defeats the purpose of having a villain right..

    Anyway, THIS WAS AWESOMENESS!!! A great DARK romance!!!

    Our H is a totally mysterious but likeable A-hole for the things he do to the h... I was totally wrapped in the story the entire book.

    It got a bit boring during the middle, but actually now that the book is over... the middle really makes sense...because where the h was being held... there was really nothing to do, but what she was doing...sooooooo...Yeah, no action required... (by golly! I think I just figured that out!)

    So after the hospital, the book goes from 0.... nah, more like 35mph to 60 in the blink of an eye. I was literally pressing my ear bobs into my eardrums to make sure I heard this and that... I didn't want to miss anything! The action toward the end was that good...but then... right before the ending, the h... OMG! I just wanted to b*slap her....

    Yes, by now you will totally love the H, even though you only know a pinky nail much about him,but STILL.... I felt like the h didn't deserve my perfectly badass villain... She totally broke the ultimate rule!!!

    Anyway... I loved the ending, serious little girl butterflies.... Awesome job Anna Zaires... Awesome job...

    The smex was just so smexy too... Love me some Alpha Man punishment!!!

    Narration was not the greatest...but a far far step up from the Liaison books by Zaires on Audible. I actually wish this narrator could go back and re-narrate the Liaison books, because that series is one of my faves, that was ruined by narration... Rae did a decent job with this... Love the H voice... so smexy!

    This is a totally Credit or Sale... I prefer not to buy books over 10 bucks unless its a must have... This was more like a very enjoyable have... a definite re-listen, but not necessarily a must have. Although, one could save a credit for a more enticing listen and just buy this because its not that expensive... still under 15 bucks... This book wasn't enticing like you are ready to beat someone if they disturb you...this was however, highly enjoyable... 2pts for Zaires!!

    "Diagnosis: Wolf by Poppy Dennison" Thanks to his good-for-nothing brother, Andrew Hughes is up to his eyeballs in debt and needs a job fast. When a nursing position opens up in Myerson, Arizona, Andrew has no choice but to take it, despite a warning about how difficult a patient Caleb DiMartino can be. Andrew can deal with a little trouble-but Caleb's strange family, the armed guards, and the unknown cause of Caleb's mysterious illness may be beyond his skill set.

    DO NOT LET THE BOOK'S COVER FOOL YOU!

    This book has two awesome m/m romance paranormal stories hidden under that crazy looking cover....

    Story 1: Dennison write some of the best mm shifter books.... this story was so cute about a nurse who becomes the mate of a sickly wolf shifter....he is only stick b/c he was poisoned by silver....but the story is fast paced, funny, and sweet with...oh yeah... nice sexy time!

    Story 2: It's a Calmes story....enough said! Great paranormal incubus story, with crazy family drama and awesome secondary character in an awesome world with demons, vamps, shifters and such... it was so enjoyable...

    Both stories are well worth a credit, sale or buy...

    Narration was good... no complaints here!

    I totally love Laurann Dohner books...Sometimes her books follow a pattern...but I think that is what makes her books so great... You always know what to expect...but there is always this one factor that makes each book different... which makes me love the way she writes.

    This was an awesome story of Ral and Ariel... Ral is a Zorn Warrior trapped on another planet after being captured...then along comes Ariel who gets captured too.. Ral ends up winning Ariel in a battle... and that where the story gets so interesting...

    I simply love the Zorn world... So real like if such a place truly existed...

    Nice one!

    Great credit, buy or sale... So enjoyable... Smexy time starts early on.. and it was awesome.

    Nice narration too!

    Wow! I was shocked... I didn't think I would just fall in love with this book. It was awesome. I felt so connected to Angel...well not connected...But I totally like him. I got angry with Brea when she ran away from Angel. How could she... he needed her to live!!!! What a selfish little twit!

    I really felt like Angel should have mind warped her or something...but darn that thing about free will with his mate... Sheeez! Anyway...what an enjoyable story from beginning to end. I loved it... even all the angsty moments...

    Worth a credit, buy or sale... I can't wait for book 2.

    Narration was pretty good too.

    Ok... Whoa!

    Now I like my biker books, but when I hit the whoa factor... well then I don't know if this is considered dark romance or biker romance. It was both. The stuff that happens to Piper in the end.. OMG!

    I liked Grizz and then I didn't.... I was just all over the place with this story. I felt like it was missing some important elements at some points, but then I felt the action and the rawness of this book made up for what was lacking.

    IDK... It is definitely worth a credit or sale... maybe not a buy... but yeah I enjoyed it.

    Narration wasn't so bad either.

Investigating the apparent suicide of a prominent Korean businessman's son proves to be anything but ordinary, especially when it introduces Cole to the dead man's handsome cousin, Kim Jae-Min.

    I am so glad I listen to the reviews. This was a pretty good story. I was surprised in how real it was. I mean, I felt like this story is so believable... having a lot of Koren friends.... Ford really did her research into the lifestyle of Asian families... Koreans especially.

    I like how Jae Min was all shy...but when Cole and Jae get together Jae gets all smexy!!!!

    Nice action, drama and romance all through this book. A good read/listen from beginning to end. One to Dirty Secret...book 2!

    Narration was superb! This was my first time listening to Greg Tremblay... and I must say... this won't be my last... Good strong narration.

    Good buy, credit or sale.

    I like this book. It was really good. Full of action and adventure... I liked how Bas, the vampire, couldn't mind warp Park, the female lead. Park was all like "wait, you can't kidnap me..." while Bas was like "why isn't my mind warp working...." it was funny.

    I like how the story played out. It was interesting to see all the pieces come together, and see the battles with the bad guys play out to.

    Now the end... I am bit upset about what happen to Bas and Park's father's friend... Seriously... WTF!!!

    This is worth a credit or sale. It's a bit pricey...over 10 bucks so I wouldn't recommend for a buy.

    Narration was pretty good. Not wonderful but not horrible either.

    Wow... I really like this. This is 5 stories of vampire brothers and their prince and how the men, who stop have smexy time after 100 years of living, found their mates... Soooo cute!!!

    All the stories are good... and full of action and drama and smexy time. I really liked it. I had to take a break halfway through though.... back to back stories of the basic same format was kinda grading on my nerves. But all the stories are the same but different. So I like it.

    Good sale book. Maybe a credit it nothing else you want is out... Not really a buy.

    Narration was pretty good... No complaints. Powers has strong male character voices.

At first, Trent didn't give Brianna a second look. The young woman who wore her hair like a 50-year-old, clothing that didn't fit her body, or compliment her natural coloring, and honestly had no idea of just how attractive she could be. But that all changes when Brianna fills in for Trent's personal assistant.

    Thank you Audible!!!!! I have been waiting on this book like FOREVER!!!

    This is the finally book to the Change of Heart Series by Mary Calmes, one of the best m/m paranormal romance series ever written... I totally loved it!

    This is Domin's story... FINALLY!!!! We get to see Domin with Yuri, and not chasing after Corin... OMG!!! Yuri is so laid back in this... no more the shesuru, be his now the seka (or heart) of Domin Thorn!!!!

    If you are listen to this, well I am sure you have listen to the rest of the series... if you haven't listen to the rest of the series...welll then...better start there.

    Oh... let's not forget the AWESOME narration of SEAN CRISDEN. When it comes to m/m romance, Crisden is in a leauge of his own. I loved it... I love all the shift and voices...the gruffness of the lead characters and Logan's voice was perfrect from book 1 to this one... I recongized everyone simply by the way Crisden narrated.

    Hands down... the long awaited book was so worth the credit, the buy, the sale... it is a must have for fans of the series. A Must HAVE!!!!

    Story

    I like Dawe narration for something like historical romances.... not this. Joya Ryan is this extremely intense writer...rather the characters go through emotional roller coasters, which makes the readers feel this intense connection with them. So the narration has to pull those emotions out by small inflections, accents, crescendo, whispers, moans and such while reading. If the emotional parts are done at the wrong time...well it make the book sound like something it is not...

    From Dawe's narration I felt like this read like a 18th century romance stuck in 2014 NY.... completely wrong...

    That being said...I actually like Dawe narration...just in the right time period...lol....anyway...this story is really good...kinda on the lines of book1... could be a great emotional read that is expected from Ryan...if the narration was changed...

    Also...I must say, the female lead come off as a totally byotch, at times with way to much pride who couldn't humble herself...but then in the same breath, she was completely defenseless.... not the same strong willed character from book1... and I think it's because of how she was narrated... and the Governor...what happen to him...no pity at all...

    GEEZ!

    I just can't recommend this for narration....but if the narration was changed...mos definitely a buy, credit, or sale...
