    Ethan Abbatt is a wolf shifter who can't shift. Plagued by pain and weakness all his life, he hopes to find an honorable death by joining his pack mates in a vampire attack. Instead, Ethan learns two things: draining his blood releases his pain and his wolf, and he has a true mate - a vampire named Miguel. Miguel Rodriguez is more than four centuries old. Strong, powerful, and vicious, he walks through life as a shadow, without happiness or affection.

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

    Yes, absolutely. This series was amazing and I hope more will be released by Cardeno C in the future.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All characters where great but the sister had to be my favorite. Her stubbornness and individuality was refreshing to me.


    What does Charlie David bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I would say the story is very well read by Charlie David and it really brought the book to life for me.


    If you could take any character from Until Forever Comes out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would say the sister. She just seems like she would be a blast to dine with.


    Any additional comments?

    Great read. Be sure to read the first book and please ENJOY!!!!!

    Do you believe in love at first sight? Paul Auster doesn't. Paul doesn't believe in much at all. He's thirty, slightly overweight, and his best features are his acerbic wit and the color commentary he provides as life passes him by. His closest friends are a two-legged dog named Wheels and a quasibipolar drag queen named Helena Handbasket. He works a dead-end job in a soul-sucking cubicle, and if his grandmother's homophobic parrot insults him one more time, Paul is going to wring its stupid neck.

    He was dead. And it was murder most foul. If erasing a man's existence could even be called murder. When Damien Mitchell wakes, he finds himself without a life or a name. The Montana asylum's doctors tell him he's delusional and his memories are all lies: he's really Stephen Thompson, and he'd gone over the edge, obsessing about a rock star who died in a fiery crash. His chance to escape back to his own life comes when his prison burns, but a gunman is waiting for him, determined that neither Stephen Thompson nor Damien Mitchell will escape.

    What made the experience of listening to Whiskey and Wry the most enjoyable?

    I think the best part of reading this series is that the characters from the first book actually play a large role in this second part of the Sinners Series. I love that about this series, I do not enjoy reading a series where the cha rectors from the first book just seem to vanish out of no where. That makes this series different and more enjoyable then other series I have read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I would have to say the manager of the pub was a great character and the uncle here was a great character as well.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I would have to say the best scene was when the main character and his best friend were both hiding in the back house of the Irish family's house hiding out, and the two other lovers where spying on them in drunk jealousy. Lol great scene all together.


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

    Again, did not make me cry but laugh and cringe in some parts.


    Any additional comments?

    Great second addition to the series. Both books are a must read if you have not yet.

    There's a dead man in Miki St. John's vintage Pontiac GTO, and he has no idea how it got there. After Miki survives the tragic accident that killed his best friend and the other members of their band, Sinner's Gin, all he wants is to hide from the world in the refurbished warehouse he bought before their last tour. But when the man who sexually abused him as a boy is killed and his remains are dumped in Miki's car, Miki fears death isn't done with him yet.

    What made the experience of listening to Sinner's Gin the most enjoyable?

    I have to say that the story line was most enjoyable. There was excitement from start to finish. I thoroughly enjoyed the action story behind the love story, all of the feelings you want to feel in a series you will get it here with the Sinners Series.


    What other book might you compare Sinner's Gin to and why?

    I may compare this story very to "Love the sinner" by Avril Ashton. Only lightly though, these are two different series but close enough to compare each other too.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I really loved when sinners gin lead singer met his new lovers mother. She made herself at home and made him so uncomfortable. It was a very fun scene.


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

    This book did not make me cry but I did laugh and I made the reaction of grabbing my mouth and gasp a few times. Really great feeling when reading books.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend this series to anyone looking for a new book series that you want to lose yourself in. You will thoroughly enjoy this series, take it from me. I know a lot of gay book series and this is one of the better ones.

    It sucks being the son of a super villain. At home, Harry spends half of his time getting medical treatments and the other half tied up in his father's underwater lair. It was different when his mother was alive, but she disappeared when Harry was six. He can't seem to stay out of trouble at school, and his new roommate, Antonin, thinks he’s a spaz, but somehow Harry has to find a way to stop his father's evil plans.

    What made the experience of listening to All the Colors of Love the most enjoyable?

    I was happy that it was not a super hero book. When I read the title and saw the cover photo I thought "Oh gosh, this should be odd" . I was very incorrect. This book is wonderful and keeps you interested throughout.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character has to be Sid. She is a wonderful persona of a mother figure, loving friend and a beautiful lover. She makes the story more peaceful when her POV (Point Of View) is in contrast. Great character Jessica Freely.


    What does Paul Morey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I completely enjoyed the contrast that Morey gave to each character to individualize them. I say great job in all to bringing the characters to life.


    If you could rename All the Colors of Love, what would you call it?

    I personally think the title is perfect.You have to read to thoroughly in order to enjoy the title. I am sure most would agree.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a very good read. Not what you would think from the title and description, there is action, love, and sorrow all in one. Everything you would look for in a good book. I highly recommend this book to buy.

    Tyler and Tanner are identical twins and best buddies, but their relationship is about to be transformed forever. Tyler grows increasingly uncomfortable with the rumors that haunt him and his brother, but Tanner doesn't want their relationship to change. Wanted or not, change comes. Tyler falls for Charlie, the new boy in town, and Tanner reaches out to help his teammate, Iggy, who is crippled in an accident and confined to a wheelchair.

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

    I would, but I would caution about the controversial elements the book touches base on.


    What other book might you compare The Nudo Twins to and why?

    I would say Aaron by J.P Barnaby. Only because the books really both touch base on such topics not normally discussed in proper conversation.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I think when one of the twins told their lover what they had done in the past and the other twin was willing to stand by his brother no matter what the outcome. True brotherly love was expressed in that scene.


    If you could rename The Nudo Twins, what would you call it?

    I am not sure but maybe "Brothers Entanglement"


    Any additional comments?

    Good read, just please have an open mind and it will be a great book for anyone to pick up or buy.

    Two years after a terrifying night of pain destroyed his normal teenage existence, Aaron Downing still clings to the hope that one day, he will be a fully functional human being. But his life remains a constant string of nightmares, flashbacks, and fear. When, in his very first semester of college, he’s assigned Spencer Thomas as a partner for his programming project, Aaron decides that maybe “normal” is overrated. If he could just learn to control his fear, that could be enough for him to find his footing again.

    Would you listen to Aaron again? Why?

    I would read this book again, because. There is a sense of clarity in this book that really can touch home for some people and I adore that type of sentiment when reading a good book.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The meaning of the story in General is what I loved about this book.


    What does Tyler Stevens bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He really brought the characters alive with his story telling. Well done Tyler Stevens.


    If you could take any character from Aaron out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I think I would take Aaron's mother to dinner. It seems as though she would be the one that would need to talk openly to someone who is willing to listen without judgement.


    Any additional comments?

    If you want a good book to read, please get this book. It is a page turner and will keep your interest from start to finish. ENJOY!!!!!
