    When Marie Brisbee, a thirty-five year old archaeologist and lonely-hearted romantic, gets news that her friend is in trouble during an expedition, she packs her bags and sets off to the tropical island of São Tomé to help her. Soon, Marie finds her life filled with danger as thieves and deadly bandits alike try to get the only map that leads to a precious treasure.

    This was a decent story at a bargain price of less than 5 bucks, so you can't go too wrong... Well I take that back I've heard some got awful books at this price point, this one was passable but was literally a copycat of Romancing the Stone, an excellent book btw, with Marie taking on Joan's character and Ethan taking on Jack's, even had an Ralph type character, at the end I expected Eddy Grant to start singing Romancing the Stone!

    Love hurts...if you're lucky.

    Kaden's dying, but before he goes he has one problem to solve - he must ask his oldest and dearest friend, Seth, to take over as Dom and Master to his beloved wife, Leah. Seth has always seen himself as the perpetual screwup and Kaden as the strong and steady one, so his friend's request rocks his world. He also knows there's no way he can refuse Kaden this.

    Yeah the title put me off, but I listened to excerpt and was intrigued. I'm really surprised how good the writing and the narration was. There were parts where I rolled my eyes, but likewise there were parts that almost brought a tear to my eye. Yeah there is sex and a lot of it, but again considering that it is erotica, it is tastefully done, that being said, if the idea of a menage makes you squimish move on. Thumbs up on using your credit on this one!

    As Reapers Motorcycle Club president, Reese "Picnic" Hayes has given his entire life to the club. After losing his wife, he knew he'd never love another woman. 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.

    I've read all of Joanna's books in the Reaper series and this one is my favorites by far. The awkwardness of London and her inner musings crack me up. I think Joanna is really hitting her stride as a writer and truly look forward to more from her. I also enjoyed the dual narration from two of my favorites Tatiana and Sean triple win!!

    It's always bittersweet when I finish listening to KA's Carnal series, it's like anything I listen next will be a let down. I particularly liked the diversity in characters in this one and hope to see more of it in future stories. There maybe be a formula to the way KA writes but I find all the stories unique and engaging. Now let's have a WOC in a lead!

    In one day, the world succumbed to a pestilence that decimated the living. In its place rose a new species: vicious, gruesome, wandering zombies with an insatiable hunger for the living. There is no government. No shelter. No hope.

    I love zombie stories like this, where two opposite people are thrown together by circumstances and even though mistakes are made they slowly become to depend on each other. I find that I really enjoy women writing about zombies they tend to flesh out the characters more, but don't worry fellas there's no angst and almost no romance. The narrator did a great job too. Buy or credit this is a great find!

    Bad boy professional motocross rider Jesse Morrison knows how to leave an impression. Except lately, it has mostly been bad impressions. Frustrated and wounded, he surrounds himself with women, booze, and drugs. After getting kicked out of his brother's house, he relocates to California for the summer to crash at his uncle's place. In Santa Monica, Jesse meets the one woman who can lead him back on the right path: beautiful 22-year-old, Niki Milani. Only one problem: She is not interested.

    I rarely write bad reviews, but this one has so many annoying qualities, from the female narrator sounding like a 15 year old girl and mispronouncing so many words, really did she pay attention in English class at all? The heroine was so whiny, weak and fearful I just wanted her to go away. I truly don't get the high reviews on this one. Don't waste your credit or money.

    Rocco Silas has come home to Wyoming after long years as a Red Team operative in Afghanistan. It isn't easy returning to civilian life, especially burdened as he is with a staggering case of PTSD or hunted as he is by an enemy determined to seek an eye-for-eye - neither of which can he battle until he confronts the truth of what happened one fateful day in the high mountain ranges of the Hindu Kush.

    Chronic loser Rebecca Alton is penniless, homeless, and sleeping on her sister’s couch. She needs a job, fast, but in this economy finding one is easier said than done. When she accidentally walks into the wrong office and finds herself auditioning for the role of fake girlfriend and very real babysitter to Carter Hudson, the out-of-control lead guitarist of an up and coming rock band, can she pull it off? And considering who her boss would be - Carter's brother and the band’s bassist, manager, and undisputed king of bad attitudes Kent Hudson - would she even want the job?

    On her way to work, for one terrifying instant Jennifer Canfield sees a tiny hand in the trunk of a car that barely misses slamming into her van. A doll? A child? With no time to think she must act and so begins a non-stop, breathlessly suspenseful journey to find the truth and possibly save a life. Stephen Baron, a road construction worker, joins her in her pursuit of a possible kidnapper through the hills of California. And where the chase ends reveals exactly how courage and love can show up when we least expect them and change everything.

    So this audio book is priced at $2.09 and at a little over 3 1/2 hours I figured why not! I'm glad I took a chance, good audio quality, fantastic narrator, and a solid story, can't quite figure out why its in the romance section, because it really is a suspense novella. go ahead a buy it if your looking for a good short story that really feels like a novel, because the writer Carolyn Nash is so descriptive. Keep on writing Carolyn, I'll look for more from you!

    Erin Coffey has been a nurse for years, but nothing's prepared her for the demands of her new position. Needing to move closer to her dysfunctional family, she takes a dangerous job at Larkhaven Psychiatric Hospital, where she quickly learns that she needs protection - and she meets the strong, over-confident coworker who's more than willing to provide it. Kelly Robak is the type of guy that Erin has sworn she'd never get involved with.

    I enjoyed this book immensely, I'm alway interested in stories and how they address mental illness. I liked how spunky Erin was, some of the scenes I was thinking OMG, I couldn't imagine she would do that! Or OK Erin stop talking... Please!! A thoroughly entertaining listen that definitely kept my attention. Oh yeah and hot sex!
