    Travis Maddox learned two things from his mother before she died: Love hard. Fight harder. In Walking Disaster, the life of Travis is full of fast women, underground gambling, and violence. Just when he thought he was invincible, Abby Abernathy brings him to his knees. Every story has two sides. In Jamie McGuire's New York Times best seller Beautiful Disaster, Abby had her say. Now it's time to see the story through Travis's eyes.

    I didn't like book 1, "Beautiful Disaster" that much... But after seeing so many good reviews, I took another chance. Didn't like it then, didn't like it now.

    Too many unnecessary details... The plots were childish and seemed to be too immature. There were no ups and downs... The story just simply went on and then stopped. Like being read from a diary or sth.

    Performance wise though was spot on. All the voices for different characters were distinct and exactly how I imagined it to be.

    It wasn't bad overall... It had its moment and I enjoyed some of it.

    Escaping a cheating ex, finance whiz Sara Dillon's moved to New York City and is looking for excitement and passion without a lot of strings attached. So meeting the irresistible, sexy Brit at a dance club should have meant nothing more than a night's fun. But the manner - and speed - with which he melts her inhibitions turns him from a one-time hookup into her Beautiful Stranger.

    Sadie Hutchins loves her job at the Kentucky Tourism Commission. Not only could her co-workers double as the cast of Parks and Recreation, but she loves finding the unusual sites, hidden gems, and just-plain-odd tourist attractions of her home state. She’s a shoo-in for the director’s job when her boss retires at the end of the year…until hotshot Josh Vaughn shows up to challenge her for the position. Josh is all sophisticated polish while Sadie’s country comfort, and the two have very different ideas of what makes a good campaign.

    Omg!!! Where to begin?? This book totally consumed me. I didnt expect it to be this good!! I finished this book in like less than a day, if only I needed to use the bathroom or work or eat, I think I would finish it in 1 seating!

    It is so rare for a book to drag out this kind of emotion from me these days, I've been reading so many books that it started to get predictable, but this book! Omg! I cried And weeped like a little girl! Seriously my husband walked into the room in shock seeing my mascara smeared face, i weeped and told him it was the book, he laughed but scooped me in his arms saying sweet nothing into my ears.. (I love him to death for that) About fifteen minutes later he walked in to check on me again, and I was laughing... It's that crazy good! Seriously, It's sooo good!

    It was so different from the moment it started, it kept me on edge, kept me guessing, i squirmed and laughed and cringed and cried both happy and sad tears! it was soooooooooo sweet! I'm sure sth in me melts into a pile of goo when I finished!

    I loveeee the characters development and the journey them both embarked on... The writer did a splendid job at revealing climaxes! They were very sneaky! Splendid! And the narration!!! Ughhh The story literally came to life! Not a thing about this listen I would complain if u ask me, besides the fact that it ended!!!

    I wish Andrew was real! He was funny, sure of himself, wise, smart, musical and he has a heart of an angel!! And Camryn, the heroine, she's so strong and witty... She's very lovable! I love them both to bits!! Omg how I mourn that book is finished!?

    If you liked The Note Book, or The Last Song or sth in that department, this book is totally for you!!!

    I read this book in paperback a year ago... And as soon as it's released on audible, I downloaded and finished it (again) in 1 seating!

    It was so hot and steamy! It was also so cute these two. The heroine has such strong personality and at times she challenges the hero to his limit. I'm on the edge of my seat the whole time holding my breath listening to them pushing eachother's buttons. It was simply delicious!! And Rydstrom, the hero of this book, he's just.... Ugh! Sooooo hawt! So sweet! He's all male and oh... So sexy!!! Omg

    The book is action packed, the narration is spot on as always!! You've done it again Robert Petkoff!!

    Tips: read book 5 first!

    Life sucks. And, as soon as Sidney picks up the pieces something always knocks her back onto her butt. It's never pretty, but this time is different. This time pretty isn't even the right word. Peter is the personification of perfection. It's like he fell off his angel perch in purgatory, because let's face it - any guy that hot has got to be naughty. He was probably sent here to ruin her life.

    Warning: it's a cliff hanger!!

    Please don't let my 3 stars rating stops you from buying this book though. Overall, I do kinda like it. Relisten to it though? Nahh.... But I did enjoy it. Did I want to strangle the heroine at times? Sure! Did the story become so unbelievable sometimes that I just want to smash my phone from pure annoyance? Hell yeah! But.... I did enjoy it.

    The story started off with a bang! It came off so strong that the first few hours made me feel giddy and excited, but then that was all the positive reaction I got from it. From there on, it just spiraled down. I found the monologue to be too long, too much, too exaggerated, repetetive and way too dramatic. And the erupt ending didnt help the case.

    Just don't expect too much, and I guess you'd enjoy it. It wasn't all that bad. I'm actually looking for the second book now... Unfortunately though I can't find any information about its releasing date, or if H M Ward is ever going to continue at all.

    Wolf shifter Jaime Farrow has a secret. And no one - not her Alpha, not her best friend, and most definitely not gorgeous Dante Garcea - can know the truth. She thinks keeping her little “problem” under wraps from Dante won’t be so tough; after all, he’s ignored her for years, despite her best attempts at flirtation. But though Jaime is determined to face her problem alone, nothing can stop her from wanting him.... As Beta, Dante is responsible for the protection and safety of his entire pack. If a wolf is hiding something that could endanger the others, it’s his business to know about it....

    I pre-ordered this book a month ago and was on edge the whole time waiting for it to release. It doesnt disappint!!! This book is captivating! It twists, it turns and I very much enjoy the ride the author had brought me on.

    Both hero and heroine were introduced in book 1 and had me totally convinced that Jaime was going to be a meek submissive shifter, but boy was I wrong! In this book, she was everything I secretly wish she turned out to be. Hero's personally had been consistent throughout both books. He's strong and domineering and an all male beta! it make me squirm when he grew to care so much about Jaime and he was soooo sweet and oh soooo sexy. *swallow*

    Sex scenes were hot and heavy. You might need a fan for it!! Jill Redfield did a good job narrating as always!

    I kinda wish there were more action to it like the first book though, if not more. but Its no biggy!! I still enjoyed it very very much!!!

Except she’s not so little anymore. And Gabe has waited a long time to act on his desires.

    After reading so many reviews i was a bit hesitant to buy it. But i took a chance and it turned out.... hmmm okay. I already knew what i was in for i think that's why i just went with it. No disappointment, cause i didn't expect anything more than what it had to offer.

    if you're looking for 50 shades material? Maybe it resembles some.. with all the billionaire dom and mild bdsm plays.. but if you're looking for christian grey material, i don't think this fit the bill so much. Whatever incorporated in 50, it turned out to be a bit too extreme and debased here. The hero was just a f*cked up character. There was no dramatic childhood or explanation to how he became the way he was either... in plain writing he was just naturally f*cked up and selfish. Not really likable.

    It wasn't a bad read though... just readable.

    Adam, Ethan, and Ryan aren't looking for women. They're looking for a woman. One woman they know will share their lives and their beds. They're losing hope they'll find her, that is until Adam discovers Holly lying in the snow just yards from their cabin. Adam knows she's the one the minute he holds her in his arms, and as soon as his brothers see her, they know it too. The only problem is convincing Holly of that fact - and protecting her from the danger of her past.

    It was hot I could give it that much. There were so many sex scenes, if not the deed itself than thoughts of it. It should be under erotica and not romance.

    Characters were unrealistic. Heroine had the weak doormat kind off characteristic but wasn't strong enough to build a personality that I could relate to. Didn't a trait or something that could dignify her as the heroine. The hero(s) were better explained and a bit more distinct to relate to. But still weren't strong enough to stand out.

    There were no plausible plots from the second they met down to the end.

    Not a total disappointment though, I gave this 3 stars because I liked the writing, and the hot encounters. They were rather creative and imaginative (ahem ahem)

    GET IT if your into hot group sex!

    Prim and proper art gallery coordinator Elle Walser is no good at seducing men. Heck, she's been throwing hints at her boss for months, but he's completely clueless. Desperate to escape her mother's matchmaking efforts, she comes up with a plan - buy some lingerie and climb into her boss' bed. The plan goes brilliantly...until she accidentally seduces a sexy stranger instead. Bad boy nightclub mogul Gabe Schultz just had the best almost-sex of his life. Too bad the smoking hot blonde thought he was his brother and bolted before he could finish what they started.
