    Now that the werewolves have revealed themselves to humans, they can't afford any bad publicity. Infractions that could have been overlooked in the past must now be punished, and the strain of doing his father's dirty work is taking a toll on Charles. Nevertheless, Charles and Anna are sent to Boston when the FBI requests the pack's help on a local serial killer case. They quickly realize that not only the last two victims were werewolves - all of them were.

    I love anything that Patricia Briggs writes and she delivered again, you also can't go wrong with Holter Graham's narration. If you have read/listened to any of the other Alpha and Omega books, you will not be disappointed.

    What a great start to a new series. I cannot wait for the next one. I love this new magic world and the new cast of characters. Another solid performance, if you like the other Ilona Andrews books, you will enjoy this one, it is very much in the same vain, female unaware of her own strength and on the financial brink, catches the interest of a very powerful man while trying to solve a case.

    Book 4 of the Colorado Mountain Series and I they just keep getting better. This one was is sweet and funny, it will make you laugh and cry. Chace is one of my favorite characters and it was great to see him heal and get his happily ever after. Although this is #4 in the series, all the books in the series can stand alone. This is a long listen, but it will go by quick. Worth the credit.

    Not too long from today, a new, highly contagious virus makes its way across the globe. Most who get sick experience nothing worse than flu, fever, and headaches. But for the unlucky one percent - and nearly five million souls in the United States alone - the disease causes "Lock In": Victims fully awake and aware, but unable to move or respond to stimulus. The disease affects young, old, rich, poor, people of every color and creed. The world changes to meet the challenge.

    One part science fiction, one part crime drama with a dash of political thriller. Smartly written, the story moves quickly and holds your attention. The story is based in a futuristic world and Scalzi does a good job integrating and explaining the technology while not letting the story get bogged down. Crime/police stories are not typically my thing, but I really enjoyed this one. If you like his other books, this one will not disappoint. I also loved the Will Wheaton version.

    I think this series keeps getting better and better. I love all of Kristen Ashley's other audiobooks, but I think this is my favorite series so far. Great character development and writing, good back stories, heartwarming romance with some thrills. It has a bit of everything. This is book 3 in this series, and although you don't need to begin with book one, I'd start with The Gamble and then listen to Sweet Dreams since some characters and places from those books referenced. Over all a great listen.

    After losing her boyfriend, apartment, and job in the same day, Janie Morris can't help wondering what new torment fate has in store. To her utter mortification, Quinn Sullivan- aka Sir McHotpants- witnesses it all then keeps turning up like a pair of shoes you lust after but can't afford. The last thing she expects is for Quinn - the focus of her slightly, albeit harmless, stalkerish tendencies - to make her an offer she can't refuse.

    Story

    This is a really fun listen. On the surface this is a nerd-gets-hot-guy story, but Janie is not a typical nerd and the author does a good job making her character's insecurities believable and not annoying. Janie is a 26 year old, smart girl that is insecure and querky due to her background. She starts out having a bad day but meets Quinn, the good looking building security guard, that helps her land a new job. They develop a relationship despite Janie's insecurities, ex boyfriend issues and family dramas.

    There were parts of the story that were predictable (Janie not realizing Quinn's position in the company), but there is enough other stuff going on with the characters to keep me engaged and listening. I also enjoyed the humor of this story, I liked the eccentric trivia and Janie's internal dialogues.

    Over all this is a very solid contemporay romance/ chic-lit story and a highly enjoyable listen. I highly recommend this one - especially at $6 with the Whispersync.

    I think I liked book 2 better then book one. If you like paranormal romance, then you will like this series about the alien warriors finding their true loves here on earth while searching for others of their race here to commit horrible crimes. For a book with so much death, it was still a light read with most of the heavy stuff glossed over or resolved in a few pages. It has some mystery to it and left some questions to be answered in the next book. This one won't be for everyone, but really liked it.

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.

    This one is a great addition to the Christina Lauren books, funny and sexy and oh so very hot. I did not like it as well as her previous books, but I absolutely LOVED them, so you have to take that with a grain of salt. This book is still very enjoyable and very good, I was just not blown away, like I have been in the past. The story and some characters did not seem as developed as in past books and the ending was good, but did not provide all the resolution I wanted to see, not sure if more is coming in another book. Overall a highly enjoyable listen.

    Samantha Martin is an imp, enjoying an extended vacation from Hel. All she wants to do is drink beer by the pool, play mischievous pranks on the humans, and get her hot neighbor in the sack. It's a relaxing break from her infernal home as long as she manages to avoid the angels, who won't hesitate to execute her on sight. But when her naughty hellhound lands her in trouble with the local werewolf pack, Sam is blackmailed into helping track and catch a killer. The steps she must take to appease the werewolves will put her right in the crosshairs of the angels.

    I was really impressed with this debut novel. It's a really great paranormal/urban fantasy story and I can't wait for the next one to be released on audible. In this series, the main protagonist is a demon, but she's not as evil as most literary demons are. She's struggling to live a normal human life, while causing just enough mischief to keep her the boredom at bay and staying under the radar of the angels that police the human world.

    This book had some pretty funny moments and I found myself laughing out loud. It reminded me of the Charlie Daniels series, and if you like those books I think you'll really enjoy this one. I highly recommend it.

    Anna Moder has just witnessed a shooting, seen her car pulverized, and rescued a wounded stranger - only to discover he's really a werewolf. And by her recent standards, things are actually looking up. Lycanthropes don't faze Anna. Doctoring a wolf pack outside Grundy, Alaska, is the closest thing to home life she's known in years. But hitching a ride to Anchorage with long-absent pack member Caleb Graham - that's a risk. Part of her itches to whack his nose with a newspaper. The rest is trying unsuccessfully to keep her own paws off every delicious inch of him.

    I am sure there is not much more I can add to the great things that have already been said about this book. It is another rock solid installment of Molly Harper's Werewolf series. All her books have been excellent, so to meet the hight expectations I had for this one is impressive. This book was a joy, it was nice to hear from some of the characters from the prior books and the romance between Anna/Tina and Caleb is great. This book does deal with some domestic abuse, but over all it is a typical humorous, fun romantic story from Molly Harper and a must for any paranormal romance fan.

    Also I have to add that the performance is excellent and really adds to the enjoyment. I think this is one series that is better in audio due to the fabulous narration.

    I with this one was longer, or there were a second installment. Both main characters struggle with their self confidence, and the dark elevator they get stuck in allows them to see each other of who they really are. You can't help but fall for Caden and root for the relationship with Makenna. If you are looking for something short, this is a quick listen and very engaging. I recommend it for all romance fans. It is a good solid contemporary romance with good dialogue and character development.
