    Landing the PR contract for North Carolina's new soccer team could take Holly Taylor's career to the next level. Her task? Make Kepler "Killer" de Klerk, an athlete with a party-hard reputation, a star. But revamping the sexy footballer's image, while battling her unwanted attraction to him, is easier said than done.

    Would you listen to The Striker's Chance again? Why?

    I will be listening too this story again. This was a short but sweet story. I wanted so bad for the story to be a few hours longer.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Kepler de Klerk. He was not the bad boy everyone thought he was.


    What does Jessica Almasy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Loved the southern accent.


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

    No extreme reaction. Was just simply a short, but sweet story.

    Done with being the world's biggest pushover, Haley decides that things are going to change starting with the aggravating neighbor who has too much charm and not enough restraint. What she didn't expect was to be sucked into his world, but Haley has a game plan and she won't let herself forget just what the bad boy next door is capable of. The last thing Jason expected was for his little shy neighbor to go Rambo on him over some ruined flowers.

    Sebastian Ballister, the notorious Marquess of Dain, is big, bad, and dangerous to know. No respectable woman would have anything to do with the "Bane and Blight of the Ballisters", and he wants nothing to do with respectable women. He's determined to continue doing what he does best - sin and sin again - and all's going swimmingly…until the day a shop door opens and she walks in.

    This was an excellent audible version of a historical romance story. Kate Reading did a awesome job of bringing Dane and Jessica to life. This story had so many different emotional elements. I laughed, cried and was angry too. Would recommend anyone to take a chance on listening to this one.

    Graced with the ability to shift into any form, Diskant Black is the absolute authority when it comes to New York shifters, and as the Omega of the city, his word is law. Protecting the shifter races is more than a job, it's a predisposition ingrained since birth - nothing is more important. Until a chance encounter with a tiny female sets fire to his blood, brings him to his knees and turns his world upside down. Ava Brisbane is more than he bargained for in a mate - beautiful, fragile...human.

    This book came across as boring to me. I tried listening to it several times, but it was not able to hold my attention. Finally I gave up and did not finish the book.

    Nestled high in the mountains is the quiet community of Jackson Station, where everyone knows your name and...species?

    Vampires have existed since almost the beginning of time, but not in the way we have been led to believe. These were not men cursed by the devil, but warriors blessed by God to have great strength, agility, and eternal life. But, eternal life came at a price, the price of human blood. Some chose to live within their own society: The Society of Sinners.

    Do not waste your credit on the audio version of this book. Please just buy the book to read. I wish they would be willing to re-do the audio version with a new narrator.

    Driven by his insatiable need for revenge, Lothaire, the Lore’s most ruthless vampire, plots to seize the Horde’s crown. But bloodlust and torture have left him on the brink of madness - until he finds Elizabeth Peirce, the key to his victory. He captures the unique young mortal, intending to offer up her very soul in exchange for power, yet Elizabeth soothes his tormented mind and awakens within him emotions Lothaire believed he could no longer experience.

    Story

    This story was hillarious!!! The narrator Robert Petkoff was an excellent choice. He really really brought the character Lothaire to life. I laughed so much listening to this book. The only two issues I had with this book was the love screens were a little bit cheesy and that Robert could not really pull off the voice of Ellie Peirce. I think they should have had another narrator to do her part. However, do not let this stop you from purchasing this book, it's still a wonderful pick.

    Alexander Roman wants nothing to do with the controlling rulers of his vampire breed or the family he escaped from a hundred years ago. But as a new threat to the pureblood vampires emerges, Alexander's ties to the past are forced upon him again, and without warning, he finds himself - disoriented, terrified, and near death - at the door of a stranger. Dr. Sara Donahue is dedicated to removing the traumatic memories of her patients - like those of the stranger at her front door.

    Frannie Darling was once a child of London's roughest streets, surrounded by petty thieves, pickpockets, and worse. But though she survived this harsh upbringing to become a woman of incomparable beauty, Frannie wants nothing to do with the men who lust for her, the rogues who frequent the gaming hall where she works. She can take care of herself and feels perfectly safe on her own-safe, that is, until he strides into her world, and once again it becomes a very dangerous place indeed.
