    To the Yaguara, an ancient jaguar shape-shifting people living deep in the Amazon jungle, nothing matters more than strength. Iada is their champion; genetically pure, she has been trained since birth to fight. Her destiny is to become the next Queen of the Yaguara by winning the tournament of succession - a battle to the death. Her opponent is Gabriel, a half-blooded outcast whose mother was human. To everyone's shock, he defeats Iada but does not strike the death blow....

    if you want steamy love scenes then this is for you, the plot is ok...kind of predictable but overall a good quick hot and steamy read.

    Roth and I are on an open-ended tour of the world. Roth being Roth, this means missionary in Morocco, reverse cowgirl in Calcutta, bent over the bow of a houseboat in Hanoi, slow and sleepy on St. John. Anywhere and everywhere, in every conceivable position and some I didn't know were possible. Life is pretty incredible. Until I wake up in his chateau in France alone. On the bed next to me is a note. There are only four words: "He belongs to me."

    Where does Beta rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I will definitely listen to this again but not for a month or so, some books I can listen to a few days later but this one will take me time to recover from.


    What other book might you compare Beta to and why?

    This book is in a class all its own.


    What does Summer Roberts and Tyler Dunn bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They both did a fabulous job, I always look for dual narrator books and this one was done beautifully


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

    This is NOT your mothers romance novel


    Any additional comments?

    I am not sure why this is listed in the Romance section, I guess in a round about way this is a romance but I would put it in the Fiction area more, there are a lot of hot and heavy sex/love scenes and Valentine and Kyrie are in love but the trouble that catches up from Valentine's past is for sure NOT love, the rape scenes are heart-aching, there is a lot of violence in the book but if you can make it through and NOT fast forward it is worth it. I love ANY book that gets my heart racing and makes me have to fast forward then go back and listen once I know all is well. This is NOT for the faint of heart, but if you are looking for something 'outside of the box', this is for you!

    Every story has two sides, and in this new book the epic love story between Kiera and Kellan is shown through his eyes. All Kellan Kyle needs is his guitar and some clean sheets of paper. Growing up in a house that was far from a home, he learned a hard lesson: You're worthless. Now his life is comfortably filled with passionate music, loyal bandmates, and fast women...until he meets her.

    Absolutely loved it, I for some reason thought it would span Kellan's POV for all 3 books but it doesn't, it only does the first. That being said it was great, it was great seeing his POV and you understand things that I wondered about. It is a heart wrenching MASTERPIECE!

    I haven't ever read this author or listened to this narrator and I am glad I did. I loved the story, it was extremely well written, I laughed, I cried and it had some really nice twists I didn't see coming.

    The sex scenes were hot without being vulgar and there wasn't SO many there wasn't a plot. There is a fantastic balance between sex and story, the secondary characters are also very well written with their own depth, enough there could be spin offs but it's ok if there isn't.

    I will definitely put this Author AND Narrator on my must listen to list. The narrator did an incredible job with all the different characters voices (and there are a lot), I always knew WHO was speaking just by the voice, a lot of narrators you can tell it's a man doing a woman's voice or visa versa and the narrator did such s good job with the male voices I totally forgot this was a single narration.

    I will definitely listen to this book again and again.

    Leila's years on the carnie circuit were certainly an education. What she didn't learn: how to be a vampire, or how to be married to the most famous vampire of them all. Adjusting to both has Leila teetering on a knife edge between passion and peril, and now the real danger is about to begin...

    I loved this book, it has humor, intrigue, a scant amount of sex scenes (it's not the quantity but the quality that counts and the quality is great), plus there are wonderful twists I didn't see coming.

    I was sure I figured out the twist at the end and was WRONG, it was hidden extremely well, I hate it when you can pick out the hidden villain halfway though the book, this is not an issue with this one.

    Love love loved it!

    Another shockingly suspenseful installment in #1 New York Times best-selling author Karen Marie Moning's Fever series. Burned picks up right where the surprising conclusion of Iced left off, and will feature beloved characters Mac and Dani O'Malley as they embark on another high-octane adventure in the Fever world.

    So this book definitely has a cliffhanger ending and NOT just with one storyline, Ms. Moning managed to leave the reading hanging on multiple storylines. I really enjoyed this book, I really hope the time between the next release isn't as long.

    I really enjoyed this book....but....and I can't believe I am saying this but there was just too much sex, now I enjoy a good sex scene with the best of them but I think the author missed a lot of opportunity to do more with the story, Liv and Miller couldn't accomplish ANYTHING without having sex is some fashion and towards the end I was fast forwarding. That being said it is a great book, Liv is a bit to wimpy for my taste and when he ends things she forgives him WAY to easily and quickly. The cliff hanger I did NOT see coming and is a great shocker! I sure hope in the next book Liv has a backbone ALL of the time and not just when her 'spunk' rises to the top. Defiantly will get the next book!

    When Lucy walks out of a frozen forest, wearing only a silk dress and sandals, she isn't sure how she got there. But when she sees Colin, she knows for sure that she's here for him. Colin has never been captivated by a girl the way he is by Lucy. With each passing day their lives intertwine, and even as Lucy begins to remember more of her life - and her death - neither of them is willing to give up what they have, no matter how impossible it is.

    I love all of the books from Christina Lauren but this one...I don't know what to say. Usually I can't NOT listen to a book, it took me 3 days to finish this book. I normally ignore everything and listen to my books but this one I didn't mind pausing and then didn't RUSH to get back. The core of the plot is good but I just don't know why I could not get into this book like others. I think a lot of it is because if took me a bit to get what Lucy is and how so many people can see her as a Walker and others can't "because they aren't looking". I wish I could put my finger on it! The good news is the price is GREAT, I would NOT use a credit but definitely pay for it if you are looking for a YA Sci-Fi. At the beginning of the book she was hearing a voice...what happened to that voice, it just stopped talking to her?? Just all around hard to get into. I would love to hear what others are thinking about this one, if it's just me or if others found it hard to get into also.

    Zev Hunter was an elite warrior, a dark-blood dealer of death to rogue Lycans who preyed on mankind. He was a loner, never given to personal attachments, and damned fierce at his job. But Zev begins to question his past and his purpose when he awakens in the darkness of the sacred cave of warriors - and is soothed back to consciousness by the sensuously familiar voice of one woman, the woman who has haunted his fantasies for centuries. She was Branislava, member of the Dragonseeker clan.

    Another great Novel by CF, I have however noticed a trend with authors who have series books with 10+ editions, they seem to be getting away from what made them great....a wonderful story with a bit of sexy thrown in...it seems like authors, including Ms. Feehan, that they are writing stories around the sex now instead of sneaking sex info scenes. I don't know if I am just weird but I find I miss the plot and am fast forwarding through all of the sex, now I love good love scenes but sometimes there is TOO much.

    All that being said I loved this book it brought A LOT of old characters back and showed how some of them are related to each other and learned more about parents of others. It's a great read over all, I did have a hard time getting into and didn't mind pausing it (normally I NEVER pause a book) but I never thought about NOT finishing.

    It's surely worth a credit!
