    Danika hasn't had an easy life. Being insanely attracted to bad boys has never helped make it easier. One look at Tristan, and every brain cell she possessed went up in smoke. This man was trouble with a capital T. It was a given. She knew better. Bad boys were bad. Especially for her. Considering her history, it was crazy to think otherwise.

    Story

    I was captured by these characters after reading the Up in the Air series. I was excited to read their story. All I can say is that this book is really good but I was disappointed that you really need to get to book two and three to get any really important details to the story. This book explains how they got together and their volatile relationship. Danika and Tristan are hot and sexy together and you can really feel the chemistry. They are both young and trying to find their way. Danika has had a hard life and is still in school. Tristan is rich and almost famous and comes from a loving family. The book has happy moment and then some sad times with lots of sex throughout. I can’t wait to start the next book to learn more. The narrator does a great job creating these character gets you totally absorbed in the book.

    Ava Barlow hates men. She has reason and she’s vowed not only never to get involved with another one again, but also to exact vengeance on her best friend’s lying, cheating, rat-bastard husband. Since Luke Stark, Ava's childhood crush, is now a badass mother, she thinks to enlist him, but changes her mind at the last second. Too late. Luke knows she’s up to something and he’s already seen many a Rock Chick try to fight her own battles without the Hot Bunch stepping in. He’s having none of it. She’s having none of him. The clash of the Rock Chick and Hot Guy begins, but Luke’s got the advantage.

    Story

    This series is just too funny. I love the fact that all the women are sarcastic and strong-willed. They tend to get into a lot of trouble but boy is it funny. You will not be disappointed in any of the books in the series. I do however suggest that you read them in order. Eva and Luke story is just as good as the first book I read. Although there are some similarities between all the books and you kind of know what's expected to come. It still keeps you laughing and wanting more. The narrator does such a great job of bringing the characters to life. This is a must read series.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Story

    I read this book when it first came out. And I really enjoyed it. I do not feel that the audio version does the book justice. I think you miss out on the emails that go back-and-forth between Anastasia and Christian. I don't think they needed to say the date and time for every email as it was distracting. I have to say it is better than the movie. The movie was awful. I wanted to see if the audio version would bring the characters to life but I was disappointed.I think that they should've chose a different narrator. In my head Christian's voice was much deeper and masculine. I struggled to get a pass that at the beginning. She did okay with Anastasia's voice though. I just know that some books, the audio versions are fantastic.

    Juliet Lawler has got a score to settle against the drug dealers of Denver. Vance Crowe has made it his mission that Jules won’t get dead while dishing out vigilante justice. Jules doesn’t have time for romance; she’s too busy saving the world. She enlists Zip (the gunstore owner), Heavy (an ex-PI) and Frank (a mysterious recluse) to help. The Rock Chicks get involved to provide advice and guidance. The Hot Bunch adopt Jules as one of their own.

    Can't seem to get in the series. Jules and Vance are great together. I love the comradery between all the characters. Jules' internal thoughts are hilarious and will keep you laughing throughout the whole book. Vance is sexy and I love when he tells Jules to "be still". I have to say this series is on my top 10 list. The narration is great and brings the characters to life.

The characters captivate you from the get-go and you can't seem to get enough of them. I can't wait to find out more about Nikki and Owen and Lindsey.You won't be disappointed with this installment. Justine is an amazing narrator. She brings the characters to life with her voice.

    When an angry, heartbroken girl is forced to be near her rocker ex-boyfriend, only time will tell if the fire between them will consume them both. Pandora, the gothic friend of Brooke (Real, Mine, Remy) and Melanie (Rogue), thought that getting her heart broken by her bad boy rocker ex could only happen once. But now, he's back in town with the biggest concert of the year. Pandora hates him so much that she gets Melanie to come with her and play a prank on him at his gig.

    I'm really enjoying this series. There are lots of twists and turns and all the books. The narration is spot on. Katy Evans has a unique way of writing that just keeps you wanting more. Although I can say that rogue and ripped were great they still will not beat out Remy's story. I love that you still have Pandora Melanie and Brooke altogether and you get their smart mouthed little comments and big attitudes. This book however did not incorporate anything about fighting or the fight scene which is a little disappointing because I'd like that. It did however bring in the sexy rocker.

    Leila's years on the carnie circuit were certainly an education. What she didn't learn: how to be a vampire, or how to be married to the most famous vampire of them all. Adjusting to both has Leila teetering on a knife edge between passion and peril, and now the real danger is about to begin...

    Greyson King. My boyfriend. My friend. My protector. He's the reason I wake up every morning with a smile on my face, and the reason I fall asleep limp, worn out, and aching for his warm arms around me. When we make love, he says my name like it means something. Like I mean something. He lied. His name is Greyson King, but his alias is Zero. There's zero trace of him, he has zero past, and now I know that with him, I will have zero future.

    I love this series. It has suspense, drama and a lot of steam😄. I like how all the characters keep coming back in each book. There are twists and turns and surprises as you go along it's not just the same old same old. This story is about Melanie and Grayson. It ties in the fighting underworld but not too much. I don't want to give away too much but something happens to Melanie. I just wish they would've spent a little more time on that part. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

    Gideon calls me his angel, but he's the miracle in my life. My gorgeous, wounded warrior, so determined to slay my demons while refusing to face his own. The vows we'd exchanged should have bound us tighter than blood and flesh. Instead they opened old wounds, exposed pain and insecurities, and lured bitter enemies out of the shadows. I felt him slipping from my grasp, my greatest fears becoming my reality, my love tested in ways I wasn't sure I was strong enough to bear.

    Story

    This was such a long time coming and I have to say that I was a bit disappointed. The storyline was weak at best. I felt like the other books had more plot than this one. Nothing exciting really happened. You don't really learn anything more about anyone in this book. The only redeeming factor is that I like hearing about the characters. I was hoping to have some more plot twists but alas did not. By the end I was tired of the sex scenes as they were over done and repetitive. Ava and Gideon's relationship went no where since the end of the last book. No wedding, no baby update, no move just blah. The only creative thing in this book was the change up of Narrators. I still don't understand why they don't have a male narrate all of his parts and the female hers where the dialogue is back and forth. You are paying two people so why not. All I can say is it was an easy listen and not horrible but if you are looking for action, surprising events or a conclusion you will not get it here.
