    When police officer Seth Colter sees the delicate, shabbily dressed beauty in line at the soup kitchen where he's serving, he's gut shot over the idea of her being on the streets cold and alone. More baffling is the dark, possessive instinct that tells him she belongs to him. For Lily Weston, home is a secluded nook in a back alley - until Seth offers her a place to stay. She's wary of his offer, but even one night out of the cold is too much temptation to resist. Seth is convinced Lily is his. The problem is, when his brothers lay eyes on her, the same primitive instinct comes roaring to the surface.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I find the characters more developed in this story than the first story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The guys


    Any additional comments?

    I find the narrator is better in this book than the first one although I still don't really like his female voices but he's the only male narrator i've listened to so far, for all I know all male narrators are like that but I do find it's easier for women to portray male voices than men portraying female voices.

    The crew is back and they're dirtier than ever. Five sexy men with a penchant for love and lust in any variation have formed a crew. They work hard and play harder - together. Though their partnership began in construction, renovating houses and selling them for a mint, they've formed a bond around their shared goal to provide women, and each other, with the ultimate sexual experience.

    Story

    I've enjoyed reading and listening to all the other Powertools books and this one did not disappoint. The sex gets even hotter in this book and the relationships get even stronger cementing the bonds between the crew and the ladies. The book ends on a sort of cliffhanger for one of the couples which continues in book 6 Hammer it Home. Be ready to laugh, get turned on and have some tissues handy for the emotional parts of the story they will leave you teary eyed.

    This book has a different narrator from the original 4 Powertools books. The narrator Gregory Salinas does a wonderful job. His voices for the ladies were (ok i'm gonna say it cute!) which had me laughing every time someone made a "that's what he said" joke. His voices for the crew were amazing and damn sexy. My favorite character voices were Devon and Dave. Devon had a cute voice that you would expect the smallest and youngest woman of the crew to have and Dave's voice was sooo.... yum exactly perfect for the biggest and gentlest guy of the bunch.

    Jayne does a wonderful job with this series. You start reading the books for the sex but you keep reading for the characters to see how they grow and become a family. The story keeps you wanting more and have you rooting for the crew and their lovely ladies.

    After not really surviving her junior year (does "undead" count as survival?), Kaylee Cavanaugh has vowed to take back her school from the hellions causing all the trouble. She's going to find a way to turn the incarnations of Avarice, Envy, and Vanity against one another in order to protect her friends and finish this war, once and forever.

    Story

    This was a the perfect way to end the series. It was emotional, it made me laugh and cry and the story is fully wrapped up with no loose ends. I was sad to have the story end because this is the last book in the series and after so many books it was sad to let all these characters go. It was a beautifully crafted series that I really enjoyed, one of the best series I've ever read.

    Amanda Ronconi did such a good job narrator all of these stories that i'm going to look up her other audiobooks because she's bound to be just as wonderful in others series as she had been in this one.

    Story

    I enjoyed this book, it was about a girl who finds out she's a descendant of fairies. The fairies she is related to have been in a feud against other fairies who now want her and her family dead. There was action and romance and mystery which made this book a quick and fun listen. It's also the first in a series so although the ending isn't too much of a cliffhanger it does leave some questions unanswered.

    The narrator does a good job with all the character voices and accent it was easy to know who was speaking which pulled me into the story.

    Covering up her own murder was one thing, but faking life is much harder than Kaylee Cavanaugh expected. After weeks spent "recovering", she's back in school, fighting to stay visible to the human world, struggling to fit in with her friends and planning time alone with her new reaper boyfriend. But to earn her keep in the human world, Kaylee must reclaim stolen souls, and when her first assignment brings her face-to-face with an old foe, she knows the game has changed.

    What did you like best about this story?

    There are too many things to count so many ups and downs and plot twists and things I didn't see coming


    Which character – as performed by Amanda Ronconi – was your favorite?

    All of them, not one character sounds like the other and even the climactic scene at the end that had 10 different characters they were all distinguishable from each other


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were so many moments when I almost cried screaming no!!!! Mainly for two character deaths that I didn't see coming


    Any additional comments?

    This whole series has been emotional and keeps getting more emotional, I can't wait for the last book and am praying that the characters get a happy ending.

    The entire school's talking about the gorgeous new math teacher, Mr. Beck. Everyone except Kaylee Cavanaugh. After all, Kaylee’s no ordinary high-school junior. She's a banshee - she screams when someone dies. But the next scream might be for Kaylee. Yeah, it's a shock to her, too. So to distract herself, Kaylee's going to save every girl in school. Because that hot new teacher is really an incubus who feeds on the desire of unsuspecting students.

    Would you listen to If I Die again? Why?

    Yes I would listen again this was the most emotional and heartfelt book of the whole series so far.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of If I Die?

    The ending when Kaylee get's not happily ever after but a happy for now.


    Which character – as performed by Amanda Ronconi – was your favorite?

    All of the characters are amazingly well done and make you love them all.

    I really loved this book it was so emotional. I'm surprised at the turn in Nash's personality and the twist of Todd which I was so not expecting but Todd and Kaylee make a good couple a lot better then Nash and Kaylee in my opinion.

    I love the whole concept of alien men "grabbing" women and bringing them back to their ship to be their mates.


    Have you listened to any of Stella Bloom’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not listened to any else by Stella Bloom but I will be now she has a wonderfully pleasant voice that works well for this kind of story.

    Bound by Lust is a romantic, couples-focused erotica with a BDSM slant. The couples range from newly blossoming relationships, long-time loves, and reunited flames. The BDSM aspect of this is both naughty and nice - bondage, spanking, domination, submission, power-play, pain and pleasure, or whatever your dirty mind can think of. Bring on the rope and rough stuff, the dens and dungeons, the corsets and clamps, and cuffs.

    Story

    There are many different subjects in this collection of stories such as pet play, voyeurism, exhibitionism, wax play, cross dressing, toys, outdoor sex, spanking and the list goes on.

    My favorite stories were, Being His Bitch by Janine Ashbless a story of a woman becoming her master's bitch during a pet themed play party.

    A Few Things to Pick Up on Your Way Home by Andrea Dale where a woman per her boyfriend's requests goes to buy a toy at a sex shop with his direction and distraction.

    Slave Sister by Vida Bailey has a woman accepting a slave sister who has recently lost her Dom into her heart and home.

    And A Beautiful Corpse by Craig Sorensen where a couple in a long term relationship (over 50 years) have sex even though old age and injuries cause them pain.

    As always to compliment the writing of these wonderful authors Rose Caraway narrates beautifully bringing life to every story and character. She allows the listening to visualize the story and feel like they're a part of it.

    I very much enjoyed these stories and would recommend to anyone if you like BDSM or Romance or both go buy this book there is sure to be a story or twelve that you will enjoy.

    Lacey Daughtry's perfect weekend is interrupted by tragic news of her brother's murder in the line of duty. Plagued by a rash of mysterious phone calls, she turns to her brother's best friends and fellow officers for protection...and comfort. Spending time in close contact with Mason and Tyler, the two men she's dreamed of since her first girlhood crush, seems like the answer to a prayer. Especially when they begin to explore the desire she's harbored for so long.

    The Victorians wrote some of the best and most enduring erotica. For such a tightly-laced age, people spent a lot of time thinking about things carnal. Jules Verne, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Mary Shelley, H.G. Wells, et al enthralled us with their visions of new possibilities. The rich and slightly decadent visuals of the steam age lend themselves perfectly to the new carnality of post-punk era. And, of course, what is repressed will be even more exciting once the corset is unlaced.

    This collection of stories has something for everyone from voyeurism, brothels, medical experiments, mystery the list goes on all with a steampunk twist. These stories have ladies in corsets getting and giving pleasure anyway they can with these wonderful steam powered devices that'll leave you wanting some of these gadgets for yourself. If you enjoy erotica or steampunk then you'll most definitely enjoy these stories that combine the two.
