    They call her the Ice Queen. At the exclusive BDSM club known as The Zone, Mistress Marguerite is a legend. Tyler Winterman has been fascinated with her since he's known her, though the rules of their world say they shouldn't share more than mutual admiration. He is her male counterpart, one of the most powerful male doms practicing at The Zone. Due to a computer error, Marguerite lacks the mentoring program stipulation required of all Zone doms, which includes spending a number of hours learning about BDSM from the submissive's perspective.

    Would you try another book from Joey W. Hill and/or Maxine Mitchell?

    Joey W. Hill never. Maxine Mitchell sure she did a nice job with the poor material.


    What was most disappointing about Joey W. Hill’s story?

    No personal growth in the leads failure to explain the inner scars the lead carried.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    narrator did a very good job with weak material that depended on shock value.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The narrator had a strong voice despite rough material.

    Marie doesn't need a complication like Horse. The massive, tattooed, badass biker who shows up at her brother's house one afternoon doesn't agree. He wants Marie on his bike and in his bed. Now. But Marie just left her abusive jerk of an ex-husband and she's not looking for a new man. Especially one like Horse - she doesn't know his real name or where he lives, she's ninety percent certain he's a criminal and that the "business" he talks with her brother isn't website design.

    Story

    The story was weak the female protagonist drove me crazy with her belief she was better than her male counter part. She was willing to go along with anything he said as long as she didn't think he cared? Joe alpha male's woman tells him she was nearly sexually assaulted and his response is to jump her not go after the man responsible? Those are actually the least of their problems believe it or not.

    Half-shifter Shaya Critchley may hold a submissive role in her wolf pack, but the petite redhead refuses to let an Alpha male interfere in her life. Furious and humiliated after her mate refused to claim her, she runs off to hide among the humans. Why wait around for an Alpha male to love her when he’d obviously prefer to ignore her?

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

    Yes I recommend them to all my friends with a god sense of humor and open mind. They are always entertaining and make me laugh out loud.


    What about Jill Redfield’s performance did you like?

    She handles the often racy bordering on raunchy material with flare and humor.


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

    Resistance is futile


    Any additional comments?

    I love this series as a whole. Lust and laughter together with the supernatural is a sinfully delightful combination.

    Mia is skeptical about her precognitive skills, but her visions about Carpenter Techtronics are so vivid, she resorts to sending anonymous emails to the company. She’s also having visions of a gorgeous man who arouses her so badly, she’s satisfying herself just to get some relief. She’s shocked when the man shows up in her office, sending her silent erotic messages.

    Would you try another book from Desiree Holt and/or Bethany Legare?

    Yes the concept is generally good


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Less exposition and redundant conversations.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Bethany Legare’s performances?

    Only because she it tied to this series. Her voices and accents often come out like cartoon voices. It is distracting and annoying


    Any additional comments?

    This would not my first choice for a read or listen. It will however keep you company on the treadmill or driving on lonely highways. The series has potential but the author bogs the story down with annoying redundancy. Like most romantic/suspense the villains are often obvious. Engaging characters you want to route for will allow you to overlook the weak narration and tendency beat a detail to death.Strong alpha men finding equally strong yet feminine women will always appeal to me as both a reader and a listener. Holt presents that aspect well in this and the first novel. The truth is with growth she could be the next Feehan until then I will pick up her books for a listen or a read when I'm in the mood to indulge in something light.

    Damien Stark’s need is palpable - his need for pleasure, his need for control, his need for me. Beautiful and brilliant yet tortured at his core, he is in every way my match. I have agreed to be his alone, and now I want him to be fully mine. I want us to possess each other beyond the sweetest edge of our ecstasy, into the deepest desires of our souls. To let the fire that burns between us consume us both. But there are dark places within Damien that not even our wildest passion can touch. I yearn to know his secrets, yearn for him to surrender to me as I have surrendered to him. But our troubled pasts will either bind us close...or shatter us completely.

    What disappointed you about Claim Me (The Stark Trilogy)?

    Every time is didn't think it could become less believable it got worse


    What could J. Kenner have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not gone completely over the top with Stark's wealth. He practically has a bat cave.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Sofia Willingham’s performances?

    She was fine the story was lacking


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The prose is very good at times but I'm no fan of fantasy without a basis in reality.


    Any additional comments?

    Will not try the rest of the series

    What did you love best about Feral Sins?

    The dynamic between the couple outside the bedroom.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Taryn because she refuses to accept the limitation others place on her.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It had the same effect as popcorn you don't even realize you are over doing it until your hand scrape the bottom of the bowl.


    Any additional comments?

    Behind all the dominant posturing are two lonely hearts looking for the life mate the can trust and respect.

    Wolf shifter Jaime Farrow has a secret. And no one - not her Alpha, not her best friend, and most definitely not gorgeous Dante Garcea - can know the truth. She thinks keeping her little “problem” under wraps from Dante won’t be so tough; after all, he’s ignored her for years, despite her best attempts at flirtation. But though Jaime is determined to face her problem alone, nothing can stop her from wanting him.... As Beta, Dante is responsible for the protection and safety of his entire pack. If a wolf is hiding something that could endanger the others, it’s his business to know about it....

    What did you love best about Wicked Cravings?

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jamie because herself selflessness is the core of her strength


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

    I have, this was as good as the first installment. She never fails to deliver on the surprising humor in intimate situations.


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

    Not all cravings are bad for you.

    Admitting how much I like this series is like confessing to drinking alone, I'm not real proud of it but I do enjoy it.

    Anna never knew werewolves existed until the night she survived a violent attack…and became one herself. After three years at the bottom of the pack, she’d learned to keep her head down and never, ever trust dominant males. But Anna is that rarest kind of werewolf: an Omega. And one of the most powerful werewolves in the country will recognize her value as a pack member—and as his mate.

    For Faith and Mark, the telepathic connection they’d shared for years was nothing compared to the scorching physical connection they realized as adults. From the first moment they came together, "erotic" was too pale a word to describe their relationship. Together they explored each other's deepest, darkest desires. But now Mark, survivor of an ambush to his Delta Force team, is a prisoner of a terrorist group in the Peruvian jungle, and his telepathic communication with Faith is his only contact with the world.

    What did you like best about Jungle Inferno? What did you like least?

    The story flowed well in the beginning it had a great feel to it. The narrator used horrible accents


    Would you recommend Jungle Inferno to your friends? Why or why not?

    No the ending dragged three four five conversations saying the same thing repeatedly.


    How could the performance have been better?

    The narrator was terrible. Don't do accents if you aren't good at it.


    Was Jungle Inferno worth the listening time?

    yes the story was go the sex hot but it could have been two hours shorter to help the flow


    Any additional comments?

    had a Feehan feel to it but became bogged down in second part.

    Half-Navajo Janet Begay possesses extraordinary power that is tied to the storms that waft across the desert. The only person who can control her when she's caught in the storm's evocative power is Mick, a dark-haired, blue-eyed biker Janet can't seem to touch with her powers. He can wield fire and not get burned, and Janet's never sure where he goes when they're not together.
