I enjoy reading series and very rarely read stand alone series. I mostly read romance and sci-fi & fantasy.

    In 2006, Nalini Singh introduced the beguiling and sensual Psy-Changeling world in Slave to Sensation, which spawned a series that has had readers and critics cheering. Throughout the incredible 11-book run there has been one question that has tantalized Nalini's legion of fans. Now, in the eagerly awaited 12th book in the series, Nalini Singh finally reveals the answer to the biggest Psy-Changeling mystery - an answer so surprising we wouldn't dare spoil it. Even if we knew.

    Story

    This is the best of the series. I had originally had planned to wait and use my credits to get this book (the book came out the 4th and my credits on the 6th), that plan lasted until the morning of the book release and I was like "I can't wait." It was the best decision of my life. I couldn't stop listening!! It had me on the edge of my seat the whole time.

    although in this book Nalini does go from one character's point of view to another's with no time to adjust that you are seeing the world through another's eyes.Other than that small draw back this book was divine! And I have every intention on re-reading this book time and time again. In fact I'm on my second go-a-round and it gets better with every listen.

    I'm not going to tell any of the potential listeners what the book is about (that frustrated me that I didn't know what the book was about, but it made the book that much more enjoyable for me), so all I can say is get the book and you will know why I can't say ANYTHING about the book in this review. It is just that good.

    This is one book you won't be disappointed in reading!

    Stella Gunn is the lead singer and lead guitarist of the Blue Moon Gypsies, and Stella used to be Mace’s girl. But Kai “Mace” Mason broke up with her and the loss of him rocked her world. One night, Stella gets a call, late (again), from one of the members of her crazy band. She has to go play clean up (again) and runs into Mace (and a shed load of police) and ends up getting shot. Mace finds he doesn’t like it much that his ex-girlfriend got shot right in front of him, but it’s worse. A very bad man has thrown down the gauntlet, and all the Rock Chicks are in the firing line.

    Story

    This was such a fun boo to listen to! I have all but devoured this entire series. As I was listening to this story i was captivated by how the hot bunch did not give up on the women they considered to be theirs.

    Of course if I was one of those women I don't think that i would be as understanding and let them get away with bossing me around as much as the Rock Chicks do. And Mace is no different. He even (spoiler) had Stella handcuffed! But I still love him and the hot bunch!!!

    The only downside was the epilogue.If you have read the premise for Ally's story then you know that she has to choose between Darius and Ren. In the epilogue of Rock Chick Reckoning you will find out which one she chooses, so if you want to be surprised then don't listen to the end of the book.

    I would 100% recommend this series to anyone of my friend who are into women with attitude, hot men, steamy sex scenes, and some good old fashion butt kicking! this book as well as this series gets a 5 out of 5 across the boards!!!

    Jet McAlister has a secret. Eddie Chavez has the hots for Jet (not to mention Eddie’s just plain hot). Jet has too many problems to realize that Eddie’s interested. Eddie loses patience when Jet ends her waitressing shift at a strip club with a knife at her throat. Since Eddie’s a cop, he figures he can help. Since Jet’s used to solving everyone’s problems she doesn’t want Eddie’s help.

    Story

    This was such a fun book to listen to. I really go into the story line. As with all of Kristin Ashley books she knows how to make a story come alive. Even if it seems to be way too crazy and unbelievable. this book was nothing to sniff your nose at, and had me wanting more.

    There was romance, action, and cat fights. I could really relate to what Jet was going though in some situations. Although I don't think I would allow a macho man to take over my ife and begin to make decisions for me. It somehow worked out for her.

    The only downside to this book was the ending. It was a little to "fairly tale" with everyone living happly ever after and all that jazz. Even though Jet went through some serious crazy stuff it still seemed like there could have been a more dramatic ending. Like with Indie's ending it felt like an ending to a story and it being a good ending.

    It makes little difference to me this was an amazing book and i can't wait to listen to the rest of the series.

    Kathleen Turner wasn’t expecting to fall in love when she came to Indianapolis a year ago, much less with two very different men. And not just any men: Brothers. Blane Kirk, former SEAL turned attorney, is every woman’s dream man. He’s also a playboy who changes women as often as he changes his tie, and trying to hold on to Blane could only break Kathleen’s heart.

    Story

    This is the last book in the Kathleen Turner series. It is full of the same action that the other books had. Kathleen is in trouble and Blaine and Kade are willing to do whatever it takes to help her.

    The one good thing is that you find out what brother she chooses. And you find out fairly quickly which one that is. It is not the one I would have chosen but, it is all good in the end mostly.

    I am really surprised that Kathleen hasn't had any lasting injuries from all the times that she has been hit in the head. You would think that either Blaine or Kade would have taught her some self-defense or something. But she manages to get out of most of the problems she finds herself.

    This was a good ending to the series and almost all of the loose ends are tied up nicely. I would like to know what happens to the brother that Kathleen doesn't choose and how he fairs but, that is for another series? This is a fun and exciting series that will have you laughing and crying and wishing that you were Kathleen all at the same time. I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in a series like this one.

    Jenna O'Conner is not human, nor is she considered the norm for the supernatural Other community that is benevolent enough to share this world with the humans. On her first day as a member of the Wilmington Police Department's SWAT Team, Jenna runs into trouble in the form of a deadly, mouthwatering man named Adam McPhee, who is also not human. He is determined to figure out exactly what Jenna is, which could very well put her life in danger.

    Story

    This was a thrill to listen to it really was. The only down side to the book was the narrator. She made the male voices sound creepy and pretty much all the same. I know that when narrators have to read a character that isn't their own gender they do a pretty good job of it but Ms Skyye made the male characters sound unappealing and unattractive.

    The author did a beautiful job of writing the story and it was a true joy to listen to. I could hardly stop. I am looking forward to the rest of the books in this series. I can't wait to see what new characters and plot twist Jessica Lane will throw our way. I will hope that Ms. Skyye will not be reading the remaining books after book 2.

It’s going to take time and a fat wallet to restore the fixer-upper to its former glory, but after her recent divorce, Peyton could use the distraction. It’s not long before Peyton discovers she’s moved into the haunted home of a flirtatious paranormal prankster.

    Story

    This was a fun and quirky book when I first started. As the story went on however I found it to be a bit dragging. I loved the narrator she did an amazing job. This is a book you can enjoy on an afternoon of cleaning. I'm not sure how the rest of the series is going to be, but this first book was for me lacking.

    The biggest problem I have with this book is the lack of substance. Everything in the story line is one dimensional and flat. The worst of it was the ending. The author built up to a dramatic and really a pretty epic ending and it just is like the author didn't know how to finish the book. I know that this is a series and the ending should be a cliffhanger, but this wasn't a cliffhanger it was a plunge off a shier rock face. The author missed the mark completely in my opinion.

    This was probably one of the worst narration I have ever listened to. The narrator completely destroyed the book. The main male character is Irish. She made him sound souther/ Australian. If she wasn't doing that the other character were depicted as being a child. It was just bad.

    It made me so frustrated because the narrator of the first book was so good and then we get this one. Ans she narrates the rest of the series.

    With that being said I will NOT be getting the rest of the series. As for the book it was good and very well thought out. I just wish I could enjoy it more but, the narrator was just that bad. Due yourselves a favor and not get this book or any book that she narrates for.

    This is the second book in the assassins series. This one was harder for me to get through. The whole time the main female character was winning and being annoying repeating the same argument about why she couldn't be with the man she loves.

    About 2/3 of the book was Fallon saying she couldn't be with Lucas. It was really annoying. I can sympathize with her but it was still annoying. I had to stop and start this book several times. Unlike the first book I couldn't read/listen to it straight through. That was the only negative thing about the book. Other than that it was another amazing book.

    I have never been a big fan of hockey. But this series made me a fan (of the idea of hockey). It had it all; romance, drama, action, and steam!!!!

    This is one book that was amazing from start to finish. This is a book that you will go back to reread again and again and never get tired of it.

    I for one am glad that I bought this title and plan on getting the rest of the series.

    I honestly can't tell if this was bad because of the writing or because of the narrator. I think it must have some elements of both. It has taken me more than a week to get through the first part of the book. I just couldn't stand to listen to the story for more than an hour or so at a time.

    The main character; Claire, is supposed to be this strong independent woman but, she turns out to be a wimp at every turn. I'm not saying that the things she has faced are easy, fun, or a walk in the park but at times you just want to smack some sense into her.

    I don't know if I plan on continuing on with the series after this book it is too hard to finish and I don't want to waste my money or a credit. All I can say on this book in particular is to be patient. It will take some time to get through.

    This has to be one of my favorite highlander stories. It has love, time travel, thrills, tears, and, laughter. I really can't describe how great this story is. It also helps that the narrator is amazing. I find myself going back to this book when I'm looking for something to read.

    In my opinion this is one of the best written highland books on Audible. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys; highland books, time traveling romances and, the narration of Angela Dawe. This is a great read.
