    Story

    I don't understand all the bad reviews. I thought this was a good steamy romance. Most "romance" books these days seem to have very little plot with heavy emphasis on sex scenes. I'm not a prude and I mostly enjoy the adult content but I do like to have a good plot. This delivered on both for me. It had great characters, a good mystery and a HEA. Basically everything I expect in a good romance book.
    If you don't care for this genre or you don't like hot sex scenes then this one is not for you (probably the reason for some of the bad reviews).
    I thought the narration was good as well. This is set in London in the 1700's why shouldn't the narrator have an English accent? Again, I don't get the negative reviews but narration is a personal preference.

    This was a credit worthy listen for me.

    After the first wave, only darkness remains. After the second, only the lucky escape. And after the third, only the unlucky survive. After the fourth wave, only one rule applies: Trust no one. Now, it's the dawn of the fifth wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth's last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie's only hope for rescuing her brother - or even saving herself.

    Wow! This was a great start to a wonderful new YA dystopian series. Although the story may not be entirely original, the writing was superb. It's another alien invasion plot but this time they do not come in peace. From the start I was immediately sucked into the story and could not get enough. Even though I don't care for the typical trilogy set up, I am happy this series will continue for at least 2 more books.
    Narration was great as well.

Parenthood: It's not for the weak of heart.

    Like all the other books in this series this was funny, sweet and sexy. I love revisiting characters from previous books and getting a glimpse into how their lives are progressing.

    As always the narration was excellent too.

    When Kate Pierce-Keller’s grandmother gives her a strange blue medallion and speaks of time travel, sixteen-year-old Kate assumes the old woman is delusional. But it all becomes horrifyingly real when a murder in the past destroys the foundation of Kate’s present-day life. Suddenly, that medallion is the only thing protecting Kate from blinking out of existence. Kate learns that the 1893 killing is part of something much more sinister, and her genetic ability to time travel makes Kate the only one who can fix the future.

    I don't typically enjoy time travel stories as the plot can sometimes get too convoluted. I must admit some of this book made my head spin for that very reason but overall I really did enjoy this book. I was so wrapped up in the story that it became easier for me to suspend my disabelief. This added to the overall enjoyment of the book. The writing is good and the characters are likeable. The narration by Kate Rudd is excellent as well. I can't wait to listen to the next few books in this series.

    This was a great ending to the Trylle Trilogy. Everything was all wrapped up with a bow on top. Even though I thought the series started off weak, it ended strong and overall I really enjoyed it. If you love HEA endings this is the series for you.

    When Wendy Everly first discovers the truth about herself—that she's a changeling switched at birth—she knows her life will never be the same. Now she’s about to learn that there’s more to the story…. She shares a closer connection to her Vittra rivals than she ever imagined—and they’ll stop at nothing to lure her to their side. With the threat of war looming, her only hope of saving the Trylle is to marry a powerful royal. But that means walking away from Finn, her handsome bodyguard who’s strictly off limits… and Loki, a Vittra prince with whom she shares a growing attraction.

    This has been sitting in my library for well over a year and I finally decided to give it another try. I am so glad I did! This was so much better than the first book, which I thought was just ok. In this 2nd installment we get more background on the Trylle and the Vittra which made this book so much more interesting. I enjoyed it so much that I decided to immediately purchase and listen to the final book in the series as well. Thank goodness for second chances….

    Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don’t even like each other.... which would explain why their marriage lasted only 12 hours. He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. She lives by the Want-something-done? Do-it-yourself mantra. Maybe she’s too similar to the rugged fisherman - or just what he needs.

    I don’t know how they do it but Christina and Lauren know how to bring on the sexy. This was another great addition to the Wild Seasons series. Finn was one deliciously dirty, sexy boy! This book had all the great banter and humor that is typical in all CL books. Not to mention all the steam too…..

    Another 5 star listen!

    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 have to first say that the writing duo of Christiana Lauren is one of my favorites. So when I heard they were writing a YA book it was instantly put on my “must listen” list. Unfortunately, this was not as good as I had hoped or expected. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t great either. I enjoyed the mystery of Lucy and trying to figure out her purpose. Sadly the enjoyment ended there.I couldn’t connect with the rest of the way the story was unfolding. Some of the crazy things Colin did to be with Lucy was just so reckless and the ending was too weird. In the end I get it. I understand what the authors were going for but it fell flat in the execution in my opinion. Hopefully their next try at YA will be better.

    Katy knows that the world changed the night the Luxen came. She can't believe that Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her-could destroy them all.

    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...

    Admittedly Kresley Cole is my favorite author, so when this book became available I immediately dove in to this sinful and erotic tale. I don’t really enjoy BDSM stories (the market is saturated now) but I loved “The Professional” so this was a must listen for me. WOW! I think my iPhone almost melted with this one. This was a hot and steamy listen with tons and tons of sex. Fortunately it wasn’t the repetitive kind or sex just for the sake of sex on paper. It was part of the story and nothing was too over the top (at least for a super erotic Russian mafia fantasy). I absolutely love Ms. Cole’s writing and this one did not disappoint.
    On a side note, I’m thrilled the publishers released this as a complete book and not in the serial format like The Professional. This moved the listen up to a solid 5 stars.
