    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.

    I love Samantha Young's writing...it is so real and make you feel as if you are in the story. She really brings the characters alive and makes you feel what they are feeling. This story was no different...I LOVED Nate and Olivia...what a great love story! And Lee Angel does a fantastic job narrating...loved this book!! As well as all of Samantha's other Scotland tales!

    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!!

    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.

    Tesla Martin is drifting pleasantly through life, slinging lattes at Morningstar Mocha, enjoying the ebb and flow of caffeine-starved customers, devoted to her cadre of regulars. But none of the bottomless-cup crowd compares with Meredith, a charismatic force of nature who can coax intimate tales from even the shyest of Morningstar’s clientele.

    Story

    I love this author! I only discovered her about two months ago and this was my 7th book that I have listened to by her...she has great character development and new and different story lines in each book that unfolds beautiful love stories. I also love how her characters from each book show up again in the other books...all of her stories take place in PA and main characters from other books pop up as side characters in future books. For instance, in this one Johhny D. shows up from Collide and Sadie and Joe show up from Broken. It just seems to weave a storyline through all of the books.

    I love Tesla in this book - very sure of herself...I also love Charlie. Very romantic, sexy and honest. And...another great narrator for Megan Hart - wonderful voices.

    I recommend this book. Another review said this was a very similar storyline to Tempted...aside from there being 3 people involved in the love story...I don't think anything else was similar...so don't let that deter you from reading it.

    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...

    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.

    Story

    I LOVED this follow up to Beautiful Disaster! I thought hearing the inner thoughts of Travis pulled the pieces of their love story together...and I thought the author did a great job of telling the same story, yet not being repetitive. Unlike other reviewers, I enjoyed replaying specific scenes (not all of the scenes) but hearing the other side of the story...isn't that what we all want - to know what the other person is thinking?

    I really loved the writing as well., specifically the dialogues - between Sheply and Travis, Pigeon and Travis, America and Sheply..I thought the author did a great job of really making it feel like we were there at college with them - just the right amount of cussing and drinking (all things that happen in college) without it being too much. And the narrator was FABULOUS!! Wow...he really brought Travis Maddox to life for me...I felt every emotion that he felt - it is amazing how much difference a narrator can make to an audiobook.

    I highly recommend this book, but I would read Beautiful Disaster first.
