    Eight months. That's how long it's been since Eliza last saw Gage, and they both feel as if they don't deserve one another's forgiveness. He screwed up. She walked away without looking back. They'll try and make up all the time they've lost with one another, that is, until they're facing the choices of either going their separate ways, or hanging on and fighting for dear life. The fights will be endless. The heartache will be real. The demons will return, and they won't back down without a fight.

    Story

    Wow, I was really hoping for better. This book is so dark, and the overall theme of too little too late prevails. A rocker romance with the worlds boring-est rock band. Again I find myself listening to simplistic problems, with obvious solutions, dragged through a teen aged girls diary. More dumb choices by the characters, and antagonists with no substance. Really, that's all you had to do to beat them? Why didn't you think of that 14 chapters ago? This book is so pouffy I'm not surprised that the ending was a cliché.

    Zandy’s had too much to drink and is in the wrong place at the wrong time. She knows she’s going to die. When next her eyes open, a beautiful man-creature is holding her in his arms. He’s just too tempting to resist; her very own fallen angel. She wraps herself around his body, determined to have him. But when this angel turns out to be flesh and blood, reality crashes in - she’s seducing a New Species. Tiger’s shock quickly turns to intense passion when the human female kisses him, despite the fact she’s trying to get his clothes off while he’s engaged in a task force operation.

    Story

    I want a new species! Tiger is so sexy and the story, although light, really captures the imagination. Laurann Dohner has created a very believable world with hot hunky creatures that makes reality look wanting. I love how Tiger fights his "wants" and gives in to his "desires".

    Olivia Waterhouse just got drafted. Problem is, she isn't being forced into the Army, she's been chosen as a Kindred bride. The Kindred are huge alien warriors;a race of genetic traders whose population is ninety-five percent male. After saving Earth from the threat of invasion they demand a reward--the right to find brides among the population. Baird is a Beast Kindred who recently escaped imprisonment and torture.

    Story

    Claimed was such a great story, so detailed, so involved, so sexy! I really got caught up in the story, but just didn't feel the narrator was right. The lead male voice sounded, at times, like the parody of an alpha male, though her voice and characterization of the brother worked really well. If you like sci-fi romance, with some intrigue, this is a good listen.

    Story

    Smiley is a sweet character that turns up throughout the New Species series. It is really great to hear his story. He is so positive and upbeat it's great to discover other facets of a character. You know he's a romantic, but his romance is kind of unexpected. I did think he was more pushy than the other new species, but it may have been because of the female lead. I really wanted her to be more sassy or feisty, but really found her to kinda soft.
    Other than that the sex was great, the narration wonderful, and the story played out in a great way.

    After the Professional I really wondered where this book would take us, and was pleasantly surprised.
    I love the story of Maximo and Cat, (actually want to be Cat). Where the Sevastien brothers are strong implacable men they totally meet their intriguing matches.
    Denying his "requests"and proving she is exactly what he needs is a tall order, and a bold move, but recognizing he is what she needs takes a lot more convincing.
    A very compelling and entertaining story.

    Eliza Smith has never been the one to seek a relationship. She's never dated a guy in her life, never even hugged a man (outside of her father/manager of the hot and popular rock band, FireNine) but when she decides to spend her summer on tour with FireNine, it all changes. Eliza really gets to meet Gage Grendel - her former crush from high school and the lead singer of FireNine - and witness sides to him to which she'll begin to truly despise. She'll ignore him, she'll dislike his ways, she'll do anything to try and stay away from him until Gage finally gets her to slip up and give in.

    Story

    This book seemed very juvenile. I've read a lot of mixed reviews about it and decided to listen for myself. If the sex scenes were toned down it would be perfect for the YA crowd. The torturous angst-y depiction of the romance just made me cringe. The relationship pitfalls were so simplistic I lost all respect for the characters, feeling like they made dumb choices. The use of language made the characters sound much younger than their supposed 20-something ages. The story moved me enough to care about the characters and the cliffhanger ending sucked me into the next book hoping for more, fingers crossed. Really, though I didn't get a lot of "Rocker" feeling for this book.

    Can't fault Veronica Meunch's narration, she delivered good discernibly different voices for the characters.

    I have to say it was OK, but definitely not great.

    Kylie Scott returns with the highly anticipated followup to international best seller LICK Mal Ericson, drummer for the world famous rock band Stage Dive, needs to clean up his image fast - at least for a little while. Having a good girl on his arm should do the job just fine. Mal doesn’t plan on this temporary fix becoming permanent, but he didn’t count on finding the one right girl.

    Story

    I absolutely adored the story of Anne and Mal. Mal is funny and sexy and Anne is the perfect romantic heroine; needing a rescue, but strong enough to rescue him.
    Mal is such a great character, I really recognized people I know in him. I'd have to say if I knew him in real life I would find him tiring, and that is exactly what makes Anne so wonderful. The way she found to accept and love him was amazing. It was beautiful to listen to the story and observe their romance blossom and grow.
    The whole Stage Dive series to date has been a great listen, I'm totally waiting for the next two.
    Andi Arndt does a great job bringing the characters to life, and giving them vibrancy and personality beyond the written word.
    This book is light and amusing and something that can be listened to again and again. Totally worth a credit!

    What can go wrong overseeing a bunch of android sex bots on an automated whorehouse in deep space? Great job, if Megan doesn’t die of boredom. Then she catches sight of the sexiest male she’s ever seen. On her grainy security monitor, she watches all his sexual exploits with the bots, and fantasizes. But that’s all she can do because he's a cyborg. Then fate steps in. There’s a crash and Megan must escape or die. The cyborgs are rescuing the sex bots - taking them onboard their ship. She knows cyborgs hate humans. They’ll kill her if she asks for help so she devises an insane plan - pretend to be the most realistic sex bot ever made.

    The stunning conclusion to the critically acclaimed series that has won thousands of fans! When a ruthless enemy finally strikes, Mia and Korum will face the biggest test of their relationship yet. But it's Korum's own secrets that may ultimately tear them apart. From the beaches of Costa Rica to a planet in a distant galaxy, theirs is a love story that may change the world...

    Story

    The development of Mia kind of worked for me, but Korum felt very one dimentional, and the love scenes were dull.There were some interesting tangential story lines in this one but I think the affair is over, it seemed like the author lost interest in the story and it felt kind of flat. "Close Remembrance" is closer to forgettable.

    Andrew Yancy - late of the Miami Police and soon-to-be-late of the Monroe County sheriff’s office - has a human arm in his freezer. There’s a logical (Hiaasenian) explanation for that, but not for how and why it parted from its shadowy owner. Yancy thinks the boating-accident/shark-luncheon explanation is full of holes, and if he can prove murder, the sheriff might rescue him from his grisly Health Inspector gig (it’s not called the roach patrol for nothing). But first - this being Hiaasen country - Yancy must negotiate an obstacle course of wildly unpredictable events with a crew of even more wildly unpredictable characters.

    I did not like the narrator. His voice and accent made me thing the character was a very old man, far past the age of chasing dames and solving crimes. This ruined the story for me.
