    Being popular in the college music scene doesn’t solve all your problems; at least that’s what the hot musicians of indie band Luminescent Juliet discover. In this compelling novel, trouble begins when 18-year-old Riley, trying to regain her rhythm after throwing away her percussion scholarship to a top school, wins an audition to become the band’s new drummer. This sets her on a collision course with Romeo, the band’s sexy dark-haired guitarist, whose ambitions do not include performing with a girl.

    Story

    This story was cute. However, if you are looking for steam and descriptive details as far as the bedroom goes… You will be left wanting.

    It actually was a pretty good story, not one I have heard before. Our leading lady Riley is 18, but going to be 19 in two months, and she gave up a prestigious percussion scholarship to stay at home because her parents 21 year marriage has ended and she's worried about her mom and 8 year old sister. Playing the drums is all she knows and all she wants to do. So when the opportunity comes up to try out for a local rock band she tries out and of course being good enough to get a prestigious scholarship she gets the gig. Two of the band members hit on her while the one that she's actually become fascinated with treats her like he doesn't want her to be there.

    This story has a lot of up and downs, particularly relating to the mother pretty much falling apart and the 18-year-old daughter having to try to put her back together and be mom sister student drummer and everything else life throws at an 18-year-old. There are a few scenes of sexual tension between the main characters but nothing over PG-13. All in all it was a good story, it kept you wanting to know more and therefor turning the pages. I wouldn't call it light and fluffy, but by the end of the book it's more of a feel-good book then whew, glad they got through that book. If you are looking for something that's not too intense but will actually keep your attention go ahead and get this book but if you're looking for adult characters or adult situations this isn't really the book for you.

    He's a sexual dominant. She's sworn off sex. There's no way they can make a relationship work - or can they? Join world-famous movie star Flynn Godfrey and first-year New York City teacher Natalie Bryant as their story unfolds in three full-length books released three weeks in a row: Virtuous, Valorous, and Victorious.

    Story

    This is the review for all three books:

    This trilogy has a little something for everyone…Natalie Bryant has a secret that no one can know, not even her closest friends…now generally I would have stopped the book right there, but I have to admit the “secret” was vital to the story and if I were in her shoes I wouldn’t have told anyone either! Her secret has controlled her life, but she has started over, she is a school teacher in New York, has a great friend/roommate and she loves her life….but she didn’t know what was missing until Mega Movie Star Flynn Godfrey stumbled into her life.

    Flynn is a successful movie star, from a family of successful movie stars and he has been burned by love before! Telling your wife you want some kink in your life and having her turn on you calling you a pervert and then sleeping with your director, well it’s enough to have a man swearing off marriage forever, which he has, and publicly! While filming in the park a woman runs through his set, chasing a dog, and he is slammed with the knowledge that he CANNOT let her go…he doesn’t know why, but he has to know her. Natalie has spent a long time getting her life in order, and slamming into Flynn could derail everything…she isn’t open to ANY man’s affections, and she won’t break that vow to herself, even for this movie star.

    Hence starts the world wind romance that is the Natalie and Flynn story. It has some rough beginnings…I especially liked when Natalie informed Flynn that she really didn’t care WHO he was, she wasn’t sleeping with him. Nice change of pace from insta-love BS we sometimes read. Their relationship has ups and downs with some kink thrown in…I won’t spoil the story but it was a nice journey to take with two people trying to make things work. It didn’t all go perfect, but life isn’t perfect.

    Really liked the narration, A+ on that. Only got 4.5 stars because things felt a bit implausible in book 1, but books 2 and 3 really did make up for it. I felt like I took the journey of their relationship with them and was happy to have known these characters. Can’t wait for more books about this Quantum world.

    Once the most feared member of an Italian Mafia crime family, Gabriel Moretti returns to New York at the request of his mentor, Russian crime boss Vasily Tarasov. Vasily needs someone he can trust in Seattle to protect his estranged daughter, Eva Jacobs, while he avenges the murder of the young woman’s mother. Gabriel is unstoppable in a fight, whether he’s using fists, blades, or bullets; but innocent, onyx-haired Eva may just be the most dangerous - and beautiful - thing he’s come up against.

    Story

    This book marked a lot of my boxes....Mob Underworld, Alpha Males, Blood Feud, woman in distress...hot scenes, nice chemistry.

    Gabrielle has tried to be a legit businessman, despite having been born to the head of the Italian Mob in New York. When an old friend, a major figure in the Russian Mob asks him to protect his daughter while he avenges her mothers murderers he agrees....and the fund begins!

    Eva is trying to live a quiet life, morning the passing of her mother, when she is captivated by the most handsome man she has ever scene. Stepping foot into his world will change hers forever.

    Narrator was not great, he did Gabrielles' voice very well and a few other men but then he made some of the men sound like they were stereotypical gay and many of the women too...overall NOT appealing to listen to. Suggest getting a woman.

    Desperate to find her sister, Erin goes to the only man in Houston who can help her - Ivan Markovic. The intimidating, tattooed Russian operates one of the most elite mixed-martial arts training centers in the world but it's his shadowy past and reputed connections with Houston's underworld that interest her most. To find her sister, she'll need the help of her big, scary Russian protector - but asking for help from a man like Ivan carries a steep price, one that might just include her heart.

    Story

    Due to the under 3 hour time constraint of the book I get why it had to be an "insta-love" story, but I do wish they went into Ivan's past some more.

    I'm on the fence on whether or not to get the second book, which is full length, because when I think of a Russian Protector and the Russian Mob I don't think of someone like Ivan...he owns a fighting gym and is 100% legit, got out of any illegal crap years ago and well I was just really hoping for a more traditional I'm in the Mob and your my woman type of story.

    The story in itself wasn't a bad one...sister is dating fighter...can't find sister....go to where fighter works out and get the help of the owner in tracking them both down...insta-love happens....but then we really get into it that the sister is a junky, the fighter failed a drug test and got tossed out and the seedy underworld was well, pretty seedy...throw in a street gang and it got really far away from the book I was hoping to read about the russian mob. *shrug*

    Narrator was decent...like I said I might try the second book...but just not sure yet.

    Only something as important as her best friend's wedding to mob boss Gabriel Moretti could allow Nika Paynne a reprieve from captivity. Her abusive husband has kept her under his thumb with footage of her beloved brother, Caleb, killing another man. But the respite from her violent life isn't the only draw. Vincente Romani - Gabriel's deadliest guardian - will be one of the best men at the wedding, and Nika has lingering thoughts about the fascinating mobster...covetous thoughts that may put her life in danger.

    Story

    Overall the story furthered the plot and I will get the next book that comes out BUT this book had me a bit aggravated with the implausibility of it and the constant internal dialogue of "He/She doesn't want me, how could He/She"..which both the leading man and woman each had what felt like 50+ times!

    Vincent is the the second in command of the Italian Mafia, as well as a business man, but usually his business involves being an executioner and enforcer for the Italian Mob.

    Nicca is the sister of Caleb who is high up in a MC gang who usually play on the wrong side of the law, so she has a certain moral flexibility when it comes to violence and enforcement. Sadly, Nicca was blackmailed into a sham of a marriage by a violent sociopath who recorded her brother killing someone...she gets beaten regularly but can't leave until she finds that recording...but when Vincent accidentally sees her back full of bruises her careful plans of protecting her brother go out the window because Vincent will NOT allow a woman to be abused in any way.

    The idea of an abuse victim, and I mean really bad violent abuse, finding comfort in the arms of a man who performs violence for a living just seemed totally implausible to me. I still listened to the whole thing but it didn't sit well with me as far as being plausible. Nice to visit that world again though and looking forward to Max's book next.

    Narrator was better this time, didn't try to assign stereotypical gay voices to the male leads but the women still sound horrible!

Along the way, the two dominants may find that submitting to one another uncovers not just a deadly conspiracy, but a passion so raw that it'll leave them both branded by fire.

    This is the story of Mercy and Riley....Mercy the Leopard and Riley the Wolf...I guess it was kind of like an interracial love story...um...with a cat and a dog? I think the story spent too much time in listing all the ways Mercy said she would never be with a wolf, and not enough on Riley. We heard a lot about Mercy and her past and her family, but I guess the author thought we had heard enough about Riley in book 1...but that was 6 books ago so a little bit of a refresher would have been nice.

    All in all I kind of missed the Alpha's involvement in this, I would have taken Hawk or Lucas...just missing something...maybe it was lack of psy? Not sure, but it sounds like the next book is a doozey, so I think I'll take a bit of a breather from the psy gang.

    If these ever go on sale you should get them all...they really are a fascinating world!

    Still loving this world...this was Dorian's story. Dorian was damaged when his sister was kidnapped in book 1 and killed by the psychopathic council member Enrique, and he has never recovered. He has tried to put on a brave face but his soul is hurt, he hates the Psy and all the represent, if it weren't for them covering up a serial killer within their midst his sister might still be alive.

    The first time she saw the dangerous sniper Dr. Ashaya Aleine knew he almost pulled the trigger, so why hasn't she been able to stop thinking of that man..cat...being. She is one of the most important M-Psy known to the Psy race and has pretended to embrace silence for years...and yet this man might have the ability to undo it all.

    Overall it was still nice being in this world, however, after being in this world for a while I find it a bit implausible that Ashaya could have hidden her flaws for all these years, even with the net mind. So, while it was nice to read, I found it to be inconsistent with previous plots.

    I read the first 3 psy changling books a couple of years ago and I got distracted...I decided to download book 4 for a nice change of pace and SOOO glad I did! I forgot how cool this world was!!!

    Clay, the hard ass leopard sentinel has always been a loaner....the pack knows that, heck even the readers know that, but we didn't know why until now.

    Tallon, the human never should have befriended the little boy named Clay, but he was hurt and she wanted to help...and that one act cemented their souls forever.

    It's been 20 years since Clay was told his best friend, his only friend, Tallon died....so how is she standing in front of him asking for help?

    Great book, already downloaded book 5, I have missed this world, if you haven't listened to these books you just don't know what you are missing.

    Great for sale, credit or *gulp* BUY....yup....it's good!

    This was a decent sex story with a side of plot. A bit disappointed when the plot kind of fizzled, but it kept me interested for more than 10 hours so I got my money's worth. I also liked the twist that it wasn't 2 guys that came together because they wanted the same girl, it was two guys that belonged together but couldn't find a balance until they added the girl...so that made it interesting...but it wasn't great.

    I say worth it for a sale and a credit but don't just buy it outright.
