    Sarai was only fourteen when her mother uprooted her to live in Mexico with a notorious drug lord. Over time she forgot what it was like to live a normal life, but she never let go of her hope to escape the compound where she has been held for the past nine years. Victor is a cold-blooded assassin who, like Sarai, has known only death and violence since he was a young boy. When Victor arrives at the compound to collect details and payment for a hit, Sarai sees him as her only opportunity for escape.

    I enjoyed this listen, a different take on a thriller/romance. There were complaints that the male narrator sounded too old but I thought the female narrator sounded too young; however, they both grow on you. This is a series and I am looking forward to #2 and #3 as there were a lot of open ended questions that were left unanswered.

    For Mary Sullivan Christmas is, and always has been, about family. And this year is no different. As she awaits the arrival of her eight children and their partners at the cottage in Lake Tahoe, she hangs the ornaments that they made for her over the years. Each decoration brings with it a tide of memories, all of which she holds dear to her heart. But when she comes across the oldest ornament, the one her beloved husband, Jack, gave her on their very first Christmas together, Mary is immediately swept back.

    I like the Sullivan series so it was nice learning about the parents start. This goes from when they meet to the marriage which is like a month! This listen is sedate compared to the others in the sex department and it was sad knowing that Jack dies young. The narrator as always was great!

    It could have been just any night, and they could have just been any two brothers - but it wasn't, and they weren't. The scene is an Atlanta bar. The music is loud and the dance floor is packed. The good-looking brother picks up a girl. But when dark deeds ensue out in the parking lot, what happens next can only be described in two words: vintage Slaughter. From the opening scene to the last line, "Thorn in My Side" is as wicked as it is entertaining.

    In the latest story of the Elder Races, two mates face their deadliest challenge yet-each other… Pia and Dragos's magical young son Liam (the Peanut), is growing at an unprecedented rate, and if that isn't enough, he is also exhibiting new, and unpredictable, magical gifts. To protect him, the concerned parents decide to move to upstate New York. Both Dragos and Pia relish the idea of leaving behind the city. They finally have the space to indulge their Wyr side, and Liam can grow in safety.

    If you have listened to Thea Harrison's The Elder Races series then you will want to listen to this short about Dragos and Pia. I suspect most fans already have. If you haven't tried it start with book 1, you will love it! Sophie Eastlake will always be Dragos in my mind, she does an excellent job with all the characters in this series!

    Eight years ago, Sophie gave her heart - and her virginity - to Zach Barrett on a night that couldn't have been less romantic or more embarrassing. Zach's stepbrother, a steely-muscled, tattooed biker named Ruger, caught them in the act, getting a peep show of Sophie he's never forgotten. She may have lost her dignity that fateful night, but Sophie also gained something precious - her son Noah. Unfortunately, Zach's a deadbeat dad, leaving Ruger as Noah's only male role model. When he discovers Sophie and his nephew living in near poverty, Ruger takes matters into his own hands.

    Now that Tatiana Sokolov is narrating this story, I look forward to the rest of the series! She is great and narrates the Undeniable series. This story was more biker, trouble, sex and drinking, but more realistic than other biker series. I enjoyed it!

    Former small-town girl Amery Hardwick is living her dream as a graphic designer in Denver, Colorado. She's focused on building her business, which leaves little time for dating - not that she needs a romantic entanglement to fulfill her. When her friend signs up for a self-defense class as part of her recovery after an attack, Amery joins her for support. That's where she meets him. Ronin Black, owner of the dojo, is so drawn to Amery that he takes over her training - in public and in private. The enigmatic Ronin pushes Amery's boundaries from the start, and with each new tryst, Amery becomes addicted to the pleasure and to him.

    This story was....no words to describe except...ew!, eyerolling!, silly!, never happening! It was just over the top how this dominant male wooed his female. I rolled my eyes so many times. The story without the sex was not bad but there was very little of it, I may listen to #2....if it is free! The narrator was not bad with what she had to work with.

    When Lady Johanna learned that she was a widow, she vowed she would never marry again. Only sixteen, already she possessed a strength of will that impressed all who looked past her golden-haired beauty. Yet when King John demanded that she remarry - and selected a bridegroom for her - it seemed she must acquiesce, until her beloved foster brother suggested she wed his friend, the handsome Scottish warrior Gabriel MacBain.

    Bouncing from bed to bed on the Upper East Side, Kingsley Edge is brilliant, beautiful, and utterly debauched. No carnal act or chemical compound can relieve his self-destructive apathy - only Søren, the one person he loves without limit or regret. He plans to open the ultimate BDSM club: a dungeon playground for New York's A-list that'll change the scene forever. The club becomes Kingsley's obsession - and he's enlisted some tough-as-nails help.

    A nice, sweet, heartwarming Sullivan love story. The brother Zach...who will never fall in love and marry, falls in love and proposes. These stories are a breath of fresh air with all the BDSM romances out there. I have loved all the Sullivan stories so far. The narrator is very good and is the Sullivan clan!

    Gideon calls me his angel, but he's the miracle in my life. My gorgeous, wounded warrior, so determined to slay my demons while refusing to face his own. The vows we'd exchanged should have bound us tighter than blood and flesh. Instead they opened old wounds, exposed pain and insecurities, and lured bitter enemies out of the shadows. I felt him slipping from my grasp, my greatest fears becoming my reality, my love tested in ways I wasn't sure I was strong enough to bear.

    The story continues...If you liked 1,2 and 3 of Ava and Gideon's story, you will definitely like this chapter! The hot sex continues quite frequently as they navigate their life together. I enjoyed this listen, Jill Redfield does a wonderful job all by herself but the added male narrator does a fine Gideon! Can't wait for the 2nd wedding...yes it is not over yet!
