    After a nightmarish encounter with a werewolf, 17-year-old Adria Dawson loses her sister, but gains the love of a mysterious young man and his legendary family. Strange and tragic things begin to happen in the small town of Hallowell, Maine: residents come down with an unexplainable 'illness' and some disappear. In the midst of everything, Isaac Mayfair is adamant about keeping Adria safe, even from her sister whom he has warned her to stay away from.

    I truly enjoyed this series. There are three books total and I listened them in about 5 days. I have listened to other books by this author and they are just as great!

    When college freshman Rowan Michaels meets gorgeous, up-and-coming rock star Adam Everest, she knows a player like him is the last thing she needs after her ex-boyfriend shattered her heart. But she can't stop thinking about the kiss they shared on his tour bus. On the first day of school, Rowan is stunned when Adam saunters into her French class. He's soon failing miserably, and, on a whim, she offers to tutor him. But Adam doesn't recognize her as a makeup-free, glasses-clad college student.

    This is a great book, complete with the hot rock band, groupies, roadies, and a double decker tour bus. The heroine is just so adorable and easy to relate to! Definitely worth the credit and I am looking forward to listening to the other members of the band find their loves.

    Stepbrother Billionaire is a standalone audiobook. It contains adult themes, harsh language, and graphic sexual content.

    Story

    Please take my advice and DO NOT waste a credit or even money on this book. The audio is way too fast and it sounds like one run-on sentence. The narrator did not even breathe between chapters. I slowed it down in an attempt to listen and it was skipping horribly.

    I rarely give negative reviews, but I thought it was my duty to let listeners know. And besides the audio being bad, the story is completely cheeseball as well. I might have overlooked this and listened anyway, but I just couldn't get past the audio.

    In Reconstruction-era America, vampire Henry Sturges is searching for renewed purpose in the wake of his friend Abraham Lincoln's shocking death. It will be an expansive journey that will first send him to England for an unexpected encounter with Jack the Ripper, then to New York City for the birth of a new American century, the dawn of the electric era of Tesla and Edison, and the blazing disaster of the 1937 Hindenburg crash.

    Story

    Truly enjoyable, fabulous book. Seth did an amazing job with the historical aspects! I love history, but most history books can be boring unfortunately. This books make history fun with the supernatural effects added! I love Henry and I think that Abe is my historical crush! To think he could have been behind the scenes of so many famous events!

    Andrews does a great job with narration, as always. 😀

    I highly recommend this book, you will not be disappointed! I hope that after that Epilogue Seth plans on continuing Henry's adventures; the first and last American Vampire!!!

    Calling Anna and Bennett's romance long distance is an understatement: She's from 1995 Chicago and he's a time traveler from 2012 San Francisco. The two of them never should have met, but they did. They fell in love, even though they knew they shouldn't. And they found a way to stay together, against all odds. It's not a perfect arrangement, though, with Bennett unable to stay in the past for more than brief visits, skipping out on big chunks of his present in order to be with Anna in hers. They each are confident that they'll find a way to make things work...until Bennett witnesses a single event he never should have seen....

    I really enjoy time travel stories. This is the sequel to Time Between Us, and it rocked! I really enjoyed the narrator Amy Rubinate too, her voice is raspy and fits the perfectly. I loved the scenes going back to the nineties, the author does a great job remembering how different technology was, no cell phones and such.

    I was never supposed to be a rock star. I had my life all planned out for me. Play football in college. Go to the NFL. Marry my high school sweetheart and live happily ever after. I broke both our hearts that day when I told her I was leaving. I was young. I made the right decision for me, but the wrong decision for us. I've poured my soul into my music, but I've never forgotten her. Her smell, her smile. And now I'm going back. After ten years. I hope I can explain that after all this time. I still want her to be my forever girl.

    Too much drama for me. This is just an unbelievable story. He left her pregnant, stayed away for ten years, but she loved him so much that when he came back she forgave him. A little hard to believe. I know its a book, but come on.

    St. Vladimir's Academy isn't just any boarding school - it's a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They've been on the run, but now they're being dragged back to St. Vladimir's - the very place where they're most in danger.

    Love this series! I am so glad I took a chance with this series because the name does not do it justice. I love Rose, she is a very strong female character and I love reading books with her type in them! Side note: saw the movie and they did a pretty good job going along with the book, but if you have not read the book, the movie will be confusing.

    One night Kylie Galen finds herself at the wrong party, with the wrong people, and it changes her life forever. Her mother ships her off to Shadow Falls - a camp for troubled teens, and within hours of arriving, it becomes painfully clear that her fellow campers aren’t just "troubled". Here at Shadow Falls, vampires, werewolves, shapshifters, witches and fairies train side by side - learning to harness their powers, control their magic, and live in the normal world. Kylie’s never felt normal, but surely she doesn’t belong here with a bunch of paranormal freaks either. Or does she?

    I listened to all the books in this series in about one week! This great young adult story about a school for "special" teens. I loved all of the characters and Kylie's development throughout the series is amazing. I will warn though, it is very PG with romance, definitely meant for 15 and under.

    Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at that fateful Halloween party five years ago - an event that forever changed her life. What she never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she's building for herself.

    After not really surviving her junior year (does "undead" count as survival?), Kaylee Cavanaugh has vowed to take back her school from the hellions causing all the trouble. She's going to find a way to turn the incarnations of Avarice, Envy, and Vanity against one another in order to protect her friends and finish this war, once and forever.

    I loved the first few books and novellas! SPOILER: The overall series just took a bad turn when Kaylee dies at the end of "If I die". The last two books were just not as interesting to me anymore and I couldn't get into them like the first few. I did not even finish this last book, I totally lost interest. Bummer. I really like Rachel's Shifters series, now that is a strong female lead!
