    When Keri Daniels’ editor finds out she has previous carnal knowledge of reclusive best-selling author Joe Kowalski, she gives Keri a choice: get an interview or get a new job. Joe’s never forgotten the first girl to break his heart, so he’s intrigued to hear Keri’s back in town—and looking for him. Despite his intense need for privacy, he’ll grant Keri an interview if it means a chance to finish what they started in high school.

    I love this book, it has lead me to a rapid read of the entire series! Its a sweet book for all who remember their first true love. The Kowalski family makes me want to be part of their family and that is why this light leisten is perfect for anyone who wants to just lighten their heart. I must mention that Lauren Fortgang is officially my third best narrator! I can wait to listen to her narrate the rest of this series for me.

    For centuries, Lisette d'Alençon has been a warrior against the dark. She fights alongside her brothers and comrades. But when the dreams start coming, she can't bear to confess them to the Immortal Guardians' command. She dreams of a dark-haired man with soft eyes and brutal wounds, a man her heart aches for-and a man she knows has been declared a traitor. Zach is an exile, a loner. He won't defend himself against false accusations or grovel to those who should have faith in him.

    Where does Night Unbound rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I don't think any of the previous books can compare to this one....This book just rocked my world!


    What other book might you compare Night Unbound to and why?

    I would say its similar to Jacquelyn Frank's Nightwalkers Series


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The moment that Zach threw 2 vampires through the windows of David's house and roared at Seth! In my mind, all the immortals stopped breathing and might have considered fleeing (even if it was for a split second!).


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

    Oh hell yes! The things that happen to Lisette constantly just had me laughing... When the tension between Seth & Zack began to lessen, I was breathing a little easier...There is a whole list of moments I could go through....


    Any additional comments?

    I would say definitely worth a credit...Heck! I would purchase this listen outright without a credit. Just like all the others so far the story & the narration makes time fly by...

    Ever since he saved Dr. Mackenzie Grant's life, panther, shifter, and sorcerer Kalen Black has had trouble keeping the beautiful doctor out of his thoughts and his heart. The brush with death awakened an intense passion between them - one that for the first time had the notorious loner letting down his guard. With the Alpha Pack battling an evil Fae who is slowly gaining control over Kalen's mind, Kalen can no longer trust his own actions, and he breaks off his affair with Mackenzie in order to keep her safe. But when Mackenzie learns that she is carrying Kalen's child, no amount of danger will keep her away from the man she loves.

    Would you listen to Black Moon again? Why?

    Maybe....but given that I already know the ending now it would be as exciting as this first listen.


    What other book might you compare Black Moon to and why?

    I don't think there is an "equal" per se... Black moon has a variety of paranormals and they come with extra gifts...Ultimately I would say it's more similar to good vs. evil type books.


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

    She one of my really good narrators on audible thus far...


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

    After a mission goes wrong, Aric Savage is taken prisoner. Half-dead and despairing, he makes a stunning discovery: His Pack-mate Micah Chase, who was reported dead, is a fellow captive. When the Alpha team goes into full-rescue mode, accompanying them is an absolute stunner with sable hair - and a spine of solid steel.... LAPD officer and Psy Dreamwalker Rowan Chase has one priority: her brother Micah's recovery. Still, she can't help but be drawn to Aric, the ruggedly handsome wolf shifter who pleasures her as no man ever has - however fleeting their affair is destined to be.

    What did you love best about Savage Awakening?

    I love men who are hard to read...and Eric was an idiot who I could not help but love! Not to mention this abilities and his alpha tendancies


    What did you like best about this story?

    A woman who can hold herself in a pack of male shifters!


    Which character – as performed by Kirsten Potter – was your favorite?

    Rowan...I think I would have reacted just as she did when she first learnt about her new world but once she was in she was a great better half to Eric

    Would you consider the audio edition of Primal Law to be better than the print version?

    Both versions are quite entertaining but I have a higher preference for audio than print...


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Primal Law?

    The moment that Jax took off to save Kira with the nagging feeling that his life was about to change forever but unsure of how...I was hooked!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I would have to say the fight between Jax & Eric was a pretty good one!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I would say at some point Kira really irritated me....The fact that she denied her bond and almost cost Jax his life was definitely one that played on my emotions


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely a good start to this series and one that I would gladly say was worth my credit! ....although I got this listen for a better deal ($1.99) when I bought the print version through Amazon for about 5 bucks

    Still tormented by his recent captivity, Alpha Pack commander Nick Westfall isn't sure he's fit to lead - especially when he meets the one woman he can't claim without reliving the torture he endured at the hands of a rogue vampire. Vampire princess Calla Shaw has seen her own share of heartbreak, but she can tell that the wild attraction she and Nick feel for each other could turn into something significant - if only he'd let it. But Calla isn't about to give up on her mate without a fight.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Maybe it's me... but the story for this pair of mates did not send that jolt I felt as in the previous books... I felt that Nick and Calla were rushed to be mated. Yes, they has some sizzling moments, but alot of their inner struggles & how they overcame them was left out....I mean when Nick finally told Calla that he loved her, my reaction was: "What?Wait! How did that happen?" Honestly, what was happening around them was more entertaining than their story.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    LOVED: When Blue came to the rescue and changed things as we (the readers) have known based on the prior book...Little by little I think I can understand why every female in past books have just downright drooled over Blue.....

    HATED: The hunters...I would have hoped that introducing hunters would have given life to an epic battle of humans vs supernatural beings...but sadly, the hunters were more like pawns to be used left and right without a purpose....


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Marguerite Gavin?

    For myself M.G. is not the worst narrator ever but her style was just not compatible with Kirsten Potter's style. In truth, I picked up this listen keeping an open mind because I was really hooked on this series and wanted to hear Nick's story. I would give M.G. another shot if she has a series narrator or a lone-standing book....


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    In my opinion I think if this was a movie it would be a "C-list" movie.....One of those that look pretty good to watch but only when there is absolutely nothing else out.


    Any additional comments?

    It's hard to say not worth a credit because this is book 6 into the series...If you are this far into the listens then you are hooked & probably are willing to say 'what the heck' even with the change in narrators...I opted to purchase this since it was on sale :)

Now, her every move is under a vicious magnifying glass, and her life feels like it's falling apart.

    Story

    I fell in love with this series, and boy what an beautiful journey it has been. The love story btw Brady & Liz was so mind blowing that this series has officially been bumped to highly recommended read.

    The story picks up from Book 2... Brady having openly declared Liz his girl. The aftermath soon follows & and the story takes us though how this brand new relationship manages to bloom while facing the challenges that come with Brady's career. At times it felt as though Liz lost most & for a brief moment I thought they wouldn't make it to the end without at least breaking up once! But the author made sure that Liz did not have one shred of regret.... In truth if one door closes, another opens up! Which is exactly what happens to Liz! The sheer will of the their love was definately worth every moment!

    I love how the author would build up a roadblock for the pair and right after they get past it out of nowhere another pops up! Especially toward the end... I will admit after Liz discovered something that Brady might have or might not have kept from her intentionally... for a brief moment, I thought he was guilty... But as I listened along it was just impossible to believe anything other than Brady really REALLY loved Liz.

    Having JUST finished this listen, I must say I am utterly happy and in bliss but also sad and a bit miffed that it had to end.... This is definately a listen worth purchase or a credit! The narrator was perfect, you could easily identify each character (though she has a few moments where she got Brady & Clay's voices meshed! BUT it wasn't constant...For the most part (98%) the charcters could easily be identified!)

    The author is definately an auto-download for me. I look forward to future listens of her books!

These days, Reese keeps his relationships free and easy-he definitely doesn't want to waste his time on a glorified cleaning lady like London Armstrong. Too bad he's completely obsessed with her.Besides running her own business, London has her junkie cousin's daughter to look after.

    Reapers is an automatic download for me, and I have loved each an every book up until this one... There is just something (I can't quite pin-point one thing) that was missing. I feel as though the Picnic in the previous reads was far more that his story. London, well you would think being older would make her wiser but nope, she was just too wrapped up in her own thoughts to actually think that maybe, just maybe the man who she claims to care deeply for might be her salvation...

    In the end it worked out...and it still is a good book but just not the wild ride I am used as in the previous books!

    It's been seven years since Lexi Knight lost her brother in a tragic accident. On the anniversary of his death, her brother's best friend shows up unexpectedly - a man she hasn't seen since the funeral. He is no longer the boy Lexi once knew, but a dangerous-looking man with tattoos and dark secrets. He broke her trust and abandoned her family, yet what he reveals makes it impossible to stay angry. Lexi has been secretly infatuated with Austin since childhood, so finding out he's a Shifter just makes him sexier.

    This was an amazing listen...I mean even the lust-filled, clothes-ripping moment was so hilarious that it just made this book so freaking good. "There is plenty of fish" in this book! I mean this book was that good that I was almost on team Lorenzo... His bad-boy persona was just so captivating! But alas, I have to say Austin hands down ultimately was the sizzling spark that gave this romance its worth! He was the perfect half to Lexi.... The characters are all different and independent and I can't wait for each brother's story...In short, when you think everything has been disclosed then BAM out comes another secret! It can only get better from here and which is why I would recommend this read.

    To escape her father's debt to a loan shark, Dizzy seeks refuge in the upcoming Grab. She'd rather belong to one of those terrifying sky warriors from the battleship Valiant than to the sleazy criminal who wants her as his plaything. The years of constant war haven't been kind to highly decorated sniper Venom. Only the promise of earning a wife kept him going through deadly battles. Catching and collaring Dizzy fills him with incredible hope. Finally he has a woman of his own, a mate to love - and bind and adorn with his ropes.

    There is just something sexy about a man who refuses to share his prize. Unlike the other book, Venom is possessive & protective of his mate. The pair complimented each other. I think I fell in love with Venom from the moment he refused to give up his prize just because she got sick and needed surgery merely hours after collaring her...At time Venom acted like an arse but he sure knew how to make up for his mistakes! No to mention his "no panties" rule.. that got a chuckle out of me!! The deep romance through the good and the bad times are what made me love this book most! I would have bought it with a credit...luckily I got it on sale!
