    I had everything a woman could want... My husband, James. The house on the lake. My life. Our perfect life. And then Alex came to visit. The first time I saw my husband's best friend, I didn't like him. Didn't like how James changed when he was around, didn't like how his penetrating eyes followed me everywhere.

    I loved this book...especially after reading Naked...this brought the story of Alex Kennedy full circle. I loved all of these characters (in both Naked and Tempted). I think Megan Hart does a great job of a real story, with real characters and great sex scenes! LOVED both of these books!

    And Zoe Winslow is a FABULOUS narrator, really making feel each character with the subtle differences of each character.

    Couldn't stop listening...

    For 14 months Puck Redhouse sat in a cell and kept his mouth shut, protecting the Silver Bastards MC from their enemies. Then he was free, and it was time for his reward - full membership in the club along with a party to celebrate. That was when he saw Becca Jones for the first time and set everything in motion. Before the night ended, he'd violated his parole and stolen her away from everything she knew.

    This was a great MC story...good plot twists, great characters (even with some subtle humor) and hot sex scenes. But the narrators MADE this book!! I love them, especially the male voice (of Puck)...they were perfect and really brought the characters to life. I found myself laughing out loud many times because the inflections were so right on! Really great book overall!

    "If opposites attract, then I am nothing. Because you, you are everything." There's no easy road traveled to such an intense sentiment, one I never dreamt I'd feel. But I also never planned on Cannon Blackwell climbing aboard my tour bus.

    Saint Ford has worked hard to achieve her childhood dream of becoming of nurse. Focused on her work and devoted to her patients, there’s no room for love. She doesn’t need a guy making waves in her calm, serene life - especially when he’s the unforgettable hottie who nearly destroyed her in high school. Dark, brooding Nash Donovan might not remember her or the terrible pain he caused. But he turned her world upside down…and now he’s trying to do it again.

    I love this series!!! With every book I think wow! This was the best one! And then I read the next book. I loved Nash...and I LOVED the narrators...really great! Definitely brought the characters to life for me! And what can I say about Nash...the bad boy with such a great heart! Perfect for his Saint :-) I love how each book intertwines the characters from each of the other books and gives you updates on the characters you've already come to love. I can't wait to read Rowdy! I just downloaded...ready to get started.

    At 22 years old, Sydney has a great life: She’s in college; working a steady job; in love with her wonderful boyfriend, Hunter; and rooming with her best friend, Tori. But everything changes when she discovers Hunter's cheating on her - and she is left trying to decide what to do next. Sydney becomes captivated by Ridge, her mysterious neighbor. She can’t take her eyes off him or stop listening to his playing his guitar every day out on his balcony. And there’s something about Sydney that Ridge can’t ignore, either.

    Wow! Colleen Hoover is excellent at character development and a good story and just making us really feel like we are living the characters lives. This book is excellent...so well written! And I love the characters - Sydney and Ridge...and all of the side characters too!

    The narrators definitely made the story that much better!! Excellent narration...I really felt as if I were friends with all of them.

    Loved this book!

    One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him. But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation - and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out - Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume - her sweet, filthy fling - to France for the summer and just…play.

    Another awesome one from Christina Lauren. I loved this book...it was a sweet, but not too sugary sweet, love story that seemed believable. I thought the character development was great and I LOVED the narrator! I saw other reviews that were not happy with the narration and I have NO idea why...I though she was great with each character and I really felt as if I were listening to them speak. And I love Mia and Ansel!!

    The book was filled with a good story line, humor, some steamy sex scenes...the whole package. Definitely worth a credit or just to buy outright!!

    The follow-up to the runaway bestsellers On Dublin Street and Down London Road. Despite her outgoing demeanor, Olivia is painfully insecure around the opposite sex - usually, she can't get up the nerve to approach guys she's interested in. But moving to Edinburgh has given her a new start, and, after she develops a crush on a sexy postgrad, she decides it's time to push past her fears and go after what she wants. Nate Sawyer is a gorgeous player who never commits, but to his close friends, he's as loyal as they come.

    While I enjoyed this series and I like the characters...it doesn't grip me...with some novels, I can't take off my headphones...not with this one. I thought I'd listen to the second novel in this series to see if it was different from the first. I think the problem is that there is A LOT of the two main characters just thinking to themselves, or telling each other, how much they want each other and how hot each other is....kinda gets boring. I think I will try Remy so I can see if his point of view is any different, and overall, I liked the book...but it just didn't overwhelm me.

    Camryn Bennett has never been happier. Five months after meeting on a Greyhound bus, she and her soul mate Andrew Parrish are engaged - and a wedding isn't the only special event in their future. Nervous but excited, Camryn can't wait to begin the rest of her life with Andrew, a man she knows in her heart will love her always. They have so much to look forward to - until tragedy blindsides them.

    Story

    I loved the follow up on Camryn and Andrew's story, however I don't know why they changed narrators...it completely changed the feel of the book for me. I thought Lauren Fortgang did a PHENOMENAL job with The Edge of Never! She had the perfect cadence, timing and tone for both characters...and really brought them to life for me. Switching to these two narrators did not do the book justice and I could not get nearly as wrapped up in the characters as I did with the first book (which I listened to about 4 times!).

    So, while I loved hearing the ending to Camryn and Andrew's journey....it just didn't have the same vibrant feel as the first book.

    Graham Douglas doesn’t do romantic relationships, but he was knocked for a loop when he met Emma Pierce on the set of his last film. As they grew closer, he did everything in his power to keep from falling for a girl being pursued by superstar Reid Alexander. Now home in New York, his life is once again under control, until Emma appears and shows him how not over her he is.

    I LOVED this book!! I loved the story, I loved the characters...Camryn and Andrew...and I loved the narrator...she reflected the feel and tone of Cam and Andrew so perfectly, I really felt like I was watching a movie while I was listening. I laughed out loud at many places, both because of the writing, as well as Lauren bringing it to life.

    I also loved how the author switched point of views from Cam to Andrew - great insights into their thoughts.

    Such a sweet love story...and I thought it twisted and turned perfectly. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants a good read. After finishing it, I immediately listened to it again.
