    Gabe Kasper, the heartthrob of Buckhorn County, Kentucky, can have any woman he wants. But it's prickly, uptight Elizabeth Parks who gets under his skin. She thinks Gabe's some kind of hero and wants an interview for her thesis. Jordan Somerville thinks he wants a woman who's a paragon of virtue. But then the gentle veterinarian - rescuer of strays - meets Georgia Barnes, single mother and exotic dancer. She's a far cry from Jordan's dream woman - and she's made it clear that he's hardly her dream man, either.

    GABE:

    I'll start these reviews off by saying that I've enjoyed Isabelle Gordon's narration job on this series. She does a great job with both the male and female voices. She has a husky yet silky voice that lends well to both genders. She also does a really nice country accent for the characters. I'm a little sad to see that the last book in the series about Swayer's son will not on audio. But I will be reading it. Ok now on to the stories.....

    We've all read the story about the beauty and the geek or in this case the sexy country man and the geeky beauty. Lori Foster writes it with hot sexual tension with a touch of humor and one hell of an emotional ride.

    Gabe is the lovable man whore of the family. He's been getting tail since he was a teen. But one day this pain Jane red head comes to town to interview him for her college thesis and he is turned upside down by how much he wants her.

    Elizabeth comes to Buckhorn with business in mind instead of having fun on her summer vacation. But with the help of Gabe she learns how to have fun of the steamy kind.

    A sweet and hot romance buds between the two over the summer and they both find themselves attracted to their total opposite. If you are looking for a fast sweet read in the contemporary romance genre you really need to give Lori Foster a try and I recommend starting with her Buckhorn Bothers series.



    JORDAN:

    Jordan is the last brother in the family to get bitten by the love bug. After he has seen his other three brothers fall prey to love he wants nothing to do with it. But that's what they all have said and one by one they are grabbed by the balls by some sweet thing. And Jordan is no different.

    Jordan being the quite brother with the sexy voice that can tame anything female wither they are furry or not (what? he's a vet; he's really good with animals) he finds himself falling for a dancer that he spots one night at a local saloon. She's sexy as hell and so not his type. But she is more than meets the eye and soon Jordan is loosing his heart to her.

    One thing I've really enjoy about this series other than the smexy brothers is that for the most part each story is told through the men's POV which is different for me. The POV does which between them and their leading ladies but like I said we get most of the story through the guy's eyes.

    Lori Foster has been added to my auto read list for the contemporary romance genre. I have put a few more of her books on hold through my library's ebook section. They have tons of books by her and they are ALL checked out at the moment which tells me that she is a popular lady and many enjoy her.

    Accountant Katie Kramer is a quintessential good girl - working hard, recycling diligently, all the while trying to ignore the feeling that she doesn't fit in anywhere. That's all she wants. Well, that and amazing sex, and the kind of daredevil escapade she can look back on when she's crunching numbers in a dusty cubicle. Which explains why she just took a job in Wishful, California, working for Wilder Adventures and Expeditions. Waking up to find a magnificently built stranger towering over her bed - that part defies explanation.

    Story

    First Thought:

    I really enjoy Jill Shalvis' brand of contemporary romance; funny and sexy.

    The Story:

    After a near death experience Katie now has the attitude that she's going to live life with her "balls out". Never mind she doesn't have any balls. Cam has been away from home for a year, licking his wounds from a failed relationship and an accent that cost him, his sports career. The two meet when Cam finds Katie (aka Goldie Locks) in his bed after he returns home from his time away.

    The Romance(s):

    Katie and Cam has chemistry and a lot of sexual tension through out INSTANT ATTRACTION. There are a few times when they think they're about to get lucky, only to have something or someone stopping them. Neither wants to fall of the other one since Katie is only in time for a few weeks. Cam is afraid that Katie will want more if they get too close. Katie is afraid that she will get her heart broken when it's time for her to leave town for her next adventure. But they over come their issues in sweet and funny ways to have a HEA.

    There's a secondary romance happening in INSTANT ATTRACTION. Cam's aunt, Annie is trying to get her husband Nick "to see her". The couple have been married for a few years and have lost that spark. It's fun to watch the older couple try to work out their issues and see if they can make their marriage work.

    Narration:

    It took me a while to get into Liisa Ivary's narration. While Liisa does a great job narrating INSTANT ATTRACTION I'm not 100% sold on her voice for this series. She has an "older" sounding voice and with Katie and Cam are in their late 20s or early 30s. But Liisa does an excellent job with the male voices and she manages to change her voice for the females characters where her non-dialogue voice is different, instead of it being the same as the heroine's which it is nice.

    Final Thought:

    Give me more of the Wilder bunch!

    Story

    Dark Needs at Night’s Edge is the 4th full length book in Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark series that is set in a world with all kinds of paranormal creatures from vampires and demons to werewolves and now ghosts.

    We meet the unlikely hero, Conrad in earlier books about his older brothers. Now we get to see what the missing younger Wroth brother has been up to……battling blood lust and becoming one of the most feared assassins in the lore (paranormal world). One thing that has push Conrad into the assassin jig is his hatred of vampires. He has sworn to kill his brothers before killing himself.

    Not knowing his plan to swipe out the family; Conrad’s brothers kidnap him after their long search to find him, in hopes of helping him over come his blood lust.

    The Worth brothers hold Conrad up in an abandoned house that once belonged to the beautiful 20s dancer, Neomi.

    Neomi has been stuck in her home after her ex-fiance murdered her. She longs for companionship but being a ghost no has seen or talked to her in the 80 years of her afterlife. Until a group of strange men enter her home.

    Neomi is filled with hope when it appears that one of the men can see and hear her. But he’s not man at all. Neomi is shocked to find out that vampires are real and that she is falling in love with one.

    Neomi and Conrad have pasts to over come and trust to build before they get their HEA. But it’s a sexy, fun and heart breaking ride from being to end.

    I love this series and how we get to see past characters pop up and no IAD book is complete without a cameo from the ever knowing Valkyrie, Nix. She is a great secondary character and I can’t for her to get her HEA.

    There is currently 12 books (including a couple of novellas) out on shelves with more to come. They are slowing recording the series on audio Robert Pektoff does a great job with the narration and I can’t wait for the next book, Dark Desires After Dusk to be released on audio in February.

    If you are looking for a fun and sexy paranormal romance read you should try the Immortal After Dark series.

    WOW. Just WOW. Um where to begin. It's going to be hard to talk about BROKEN SOUL without spoiling so I'll try to keep it short.

    Let's the narration out-of-the-way. Khristine Hvam is Jane and Beast. NO ONE else could narrate Jane Yellorock any better! Hvam's delivery of Faith Hunter's characters are flawless. She nails it every time and is the reason this series is on my audio only list. Hunter's writing is amazing, there's no doubt but Hvam is like putting chocolate sauces and a cherry on top of the goodness that is Jane Yellowrock.

    The series is very detailed and you really must focus on what's going on. I made the mistake of zoning out for a few minutes while I was listening at work and ended up totally lost. Things were moving so fast I had to back up the audio to pick up the details I had missed. The whole novel is non-stop action from beginning to end.

    BROKEN SOUL starts out as one kind of book and with all the twists and complex plot lines ends up being something I didn't see coming. WOW Jane and Beast keep evolving into this unstoppable team of two souls in one body. Well, is that really one body since Jane can physically shift into Beast's form? Mmm...

    I've read other UF series where the main characters are weres, shifters, skinwalkers, etc and none have been done as well as Hunter's Jane and Beast. The way they communicate is original. They really are two heroines sharing a space. And with the events of the previous book, BLACK ARTS and with what takes place here, neither has an idea where they are heading.

    And for those who've been wanting some ON PAGE romance for Jane... you get it. It's not smutty because this is Jane after all but we get details that are satisfying. And I can't wait to see how that part of Jane's (and Beast's!) life changes. I think she's finally ready for a true mate!

    The ever after, the demonic realm that parallels our own, is shrinking, and if it disappears, so does all magic. It’s up to witch-turned-daywalking-demon Rachel Morgan to fix the ever-after before the fragile balance between magic users and humans fails. Of course, there’s also the small fact that she caused the ley line to rip in the first place, and her life is forfeit unless she can fix it.

    Story

    EVER AFTER is currently my favorite book in The Hollows series. We get a lot of Trent and Al and very little Ivy which was the best part for me. LOL

    With EVER AFTER Rachel has to deal with some issues that happened in PALE DEMON and A PERFECT BLOOD. As far as Pale Demon, Rachel has to work her magic to save the ever after because of the ley line she made while she was over there. And try to find a way to take down Ku’Sox (or as Jenks calls him, Cut Socks). So you have plenty of demon hijinks going on, which is always fun.

    Then you have to moment that Trent and Rachel shared in A PERFECT BLOOD and Rachel is dealing with personal issues as well. Oh boy is there some personal stuff going on with this one. But I can’t talk about it without spoiling but just know it’s good and can only get better (I hope).

    The main focus is saving the ever after and stopping Ku’Sox. Rachel gets help from old friends and new ones. New as in gargoyles, I love these creatures. Kim Harrison is a great writer that I have a clear picture in my head what all of her characters look like and I want a gargoyles on my roof.

    Harrison is slowly weaving what will end up being a great ending to the series I can just feel it. She makes sure to keep past issues clear and present with each book. We are slowly getting more answers to old questions while she hooks us with new problems. The issue with the Rosewood Syndrome is back in full force when a group of babies go missing. Another thing I love about Harrison is that she’s not afraid to let characters die. I just wish the next character to go would be Ivy. I’ve not liked her from the beginning and just when I thought we would get an Ivy free book she pops up for a couple of chapters. The Hollows is the only series where I don’t like the vampire race. I hate their politics and their very way of life.

    I love that Rachel Morgan is a character that has grown during the series. She’s had some really TSTL moments in earlier books but she’s realizing that she has made of some the same mistakes over and over in the past and is working to correct that behavior.

    Marguerite Gavin continues to rock this series! She will forever be Rachel Morgan to me. I’m off to listen to THE UNDEAD POOL.

    Special Ops soldier Griffin Reid doesn't exactly have happy memories of growing up in Sunshine, Idaho. He's only come back to recover from a war injury, and while he refuses to admit he's in a weakened state, he finds comfort in the last person he'd expect. Kate Evans teaches fourth grade science in Sunshine, the place she's always called home. Dreaming of graduate school and a happily-ever-after, she's desperate to break out of the monotony of Sunshine.

    I LOVE it when the girl gets the guy she’s had a big crush on. Love it! And Jill Shalvis writes this romance trope well!

    What do you get when you take a 2nd grade teacher and an ex-Special Ops soldier and put them together? A hot (not sweet!) romance in RUMOR HAS IT.

    Everyone in Sunshine calls Kate sweet and it drives her nuts when Griffin, who happens to be her BFF’s big brother and her all time crush, calls her sweet. She doesn’t want Griffin to see her as sweet because if he does then nothing will happen between them. Griffin is a known bad boy when it comes to the ladies and after Kate has spent the last few years taking care of her dad and two younger siblings she wants a little something for herself. That being a hot night with Griffin because she knows he won’t stay in Sunshine for long. He’s only here for his little sister’s wedding after all.

    Kate has been putting off going to California for a masters program she keeps getting invited to take part in. She’s a 2nd grade science teacher and she loves her job and would love to do the program. But she feels she has to stay in Sunshine to take care of her family. Her friends and family have been telling her to go, the program is only a year-long and they can manage without her. But Kate won’t listen.

    Griffin is back home in Sunshine for the wedding between his little sister, Holly and his BFF Adam. He might be out of the military but he had jobs offers coming in and he will only be home for a week or two, tops. But then he runs into Katie but she’s not just his little sister’s BFF, she’s all grow up and calls herself Kate now.

    Kate and Griffin have off the page chemistry. They are just what the others needs. Their HEA has a few bumps along the way and it was fun to take the ride with them. RUMOR HAS IT is now my 2nd favorite in the Animal Magnetism series by Shalvis.

    Karen White continues to work her narration magic with the people of Sunshine, Idaho. Karen really does have the right voice, timing and sass to bring these fun heroines and heroes to audio book lovers.

    First Thought:

    Ricky Bo is a bag of dicks!

    What worked:

    The action. The story. The writing. The narration.

    I love this series and Faith Hunter has built a great world with a kick ass heroine with Jane and her Beast. I might now always like the romance parts of the series but everything else is stellar.

    What did not work (for me):

    Molly, Jane’s best friend, someone like a sister to her is missing and possibly in trouble/danger and yet I felt like for Jane that Molly was an afterthought. She spent more time worrying over the current vampire issues than saving Molly. Oh sure Jane’s new team of the Younger brothers was working to save Molly but Jane should have been more involved.

    I’ve never liked Leo and I wish Jane would just stake him already.

    Narration:

    Khristine Hvam continues to make this series a real enjoy to listen to. I love her voices for and one I really enjoy but don’t get to hear a lot of is Angie Baby I was so happy that Angie was around in BLACK ARTS.

    Final Thought:

    I can’t want for BROKEN SOUL.

    Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.

    Story

    I don’t usually jump on books that are so hyped up as Wallbanger has been. I like to let them settle for a while before I give them a try. I kept seeing other bloggers say it was a must read. That it was funny. I was in the mood for a funny contemporary so I decided to listen to Wallbanger.

    I thought that Wallbanger was going to be a hard-core erotic romance but it’s not and I was glad it wasn’t. I loved that Caroline and Simon didn’t sleep together until about ¾ of the way into the book. They don’t have an instant-a-love which is really refreshing. Sure there’s an instant-a-lust but they don’t give into it. They become friends then lovers.

    Caroline and her group of friends reminded me of a younger Carrie Bradshaw and her gal pals from Sex and the City. They have dating wows that is just plain funny. They have each other’s backs and are quick to “bitch” each other out. They find themselves in a unique place where they are all single at the same time. But poor Caroline has taken herself off the market after losing her “O”. That’s right she’s missing her “O” as in orgasm. And how did she loose it? The last time she had sex was with a guy she calls the machine gun fucker. You know the kind that bang-bang bangs you. Which reminded me of the episode where Carrie (Sex and the City) has sex with the “jack rabbit”. LOL

    The way Caroline goes on and on about her missing “O” liked it’s a person and it’s her best friend was so funny. Yeah it sounds cheesy but it really worked the way Alice Clayton wrote it.

    So what’s the worst thing ever for a gal that’s lost her “O”? A neighbor that is hanging out “Os” to what seems like a different woman every night right next door. How does Caroline know what her neighbor is up to every night? The apartment walls are really thin. And that’s also how she knows her neighbor’s name is Simon without even meeting him.

    Apparently Simon is a god in bed because Caroline hears the women’s screams, giggles and meows. That’s right MEOWS.

    “Oh, God.”

    Unbelievable…

    I woke up faster this time, because I knew what I was hearing. I sat up in bed, glaring behind me. The bed was still pulled safely away from the wall, so I felt no movement, but there was sure as hell something moving over there.

    Then I heard… hissing?

    I looked down at Clive, whose tail was at full puff. He arched his back and paced back and forth at the foot of the bed.

    “Hey, mister. It’s cool. We just got a noisy neighbor, that’s all,” I soothed, stretching my hand out to him. That’s when I heard it.

    “Meow.”

    I cocked my head sideways, listening more intently. I studied Clive, who looked back as if to say, “T’weren’t me.”

    “Meow! Oh, God. Me-yow!”

    The girl next door was meowing. What in the world was my neighbor packing to make that happen?

    “Oooh yes, just like that, Simon….Mmmm…meow, meow, meow!”

    Clive is Caroline’s male cat and the meowing drives him nuts which just adds to the funniness of the situation.

    Heather Smith’s narration of Wallbanger adds to the craziness. She does a really good job with Caroline and her inner monologue. Like so many female narrators she wasn’t masculine enough with the guys but still did a good enough job with them. Her narration of “giggles” was really funny. And she did a great job with the few characters that had foreign accents. Smith is definitely suited for Clayton’s writing.

    Between Alice Clayton’s writing and Heather Smith’s performance you get a great romance with funny dialogue, engaging characters and one saucy kitty. I already have the next book; Rusty Nailed loaded on my phone to listen to. I can’t wait to see what Simon and Caroline are up to next.

    After dying and being revived with the experimental drug Returne, Bryn Davis is theoretically free to live her unlife - with regular doses to keep her going. But Bryn knows that the government has every intention of keeping a tight lid on Pharmadene's life-altering discovery, no matter the cost. Thankfully, some things have changed for the better; her job at the rechristened Davis Funeral Home is keeping her busy and her fragile romance with Patrick McCallister is blossoming.

    Issue(s) I Had:
    I don’t understand why the revived people are being called Returne addicts. Addicts are people who can (if they choose to) stop doing something like drinking or drugs. But the revived NEED the Returne drug or they die. It’s like calling me an oxygen addict. I don’t get it.

    The Story:
    Bryn is now working for the government in order to get her doses of Returne to stay “fresh”. But little does the government know, she has her own private supplier. The crazy ex-FBI mad scientist, Manny is trying to tweak Returne so that Bryn and the revived do not have to get their supply from the government.

    While Bryn works her first assignment for the government she is trying to find her sister, Annie that was also killed and revived in Working Stiff. But Bryn is not alone; Joe is still working for Bryn at the funeral home and doubling as her back/bodyguard. And Bryn’s would be lover Patrick is sticking around to help.

    Speaking of Patrick, a part of his past comes back to bite everyone on the ass this time around.

    While the gang tries to work out the mystery and keep Bryn “alive” they find themselves getting into a much big and darker conspiracy than they ever thought was possible.

    Narration:
    The narration is not the best but still very enjoyable. Whelan does a great job with Bryn and her male voices are believable.

    Final Thought:
    A whole can of worms was opened at the end of Two Weeks’ Notice so it leaves me thinking that the Terminated, the 3rd book in the trilogy will have to be fast paced to get us to a conclusion.

Then she realizes that if she doesn’t have her succubus powers then she can sleep with a man without taking part of his life in return. Que thoughts of sex with Seth, her ex-human boyfriend.

    Georgina Kincaid has formidable powers. Immortality, seduction, shape-shifting into any human form she desires, walking in heels that would cripple mere mortals - all child's play to a succubus like her. Helping to plan her ex-boyfriend's wedding is a different story. Georgina isn't sure which is worse - that Seth is marrying another woman, or that Georgina has to run all over Seattle trying on bridesmaid dresses.

    Story

    I’ve got to say that Succubus Shadows is my least favorite in the Georgina Kincaid series. WHY? Because there is still too much back and forth with Georgina and Seth. Seth needs to man up and be with Georgina and cut Maddie loose or stay away from Georgina. I’ve never really been a 100% on board with Seth as the main love interest and now that Roman is back I find myself rooting for him.

    Don’t get me wrong I still enjoyed Succubus Shadows and can’t wait to listen to the last book in the series, Succubus Revealed but a part of me just want’s the series over so that Georgina can get a HEA (and she better!).

    Much like other books in the series we get some flashbacks on Georgina’s life as a human and her early days as a succubus. I liked seeing them but at the same time I thought she’s made the same mistakes over and over when it comes to men. You think she would have learned by now. But that’s also some of Georgina’s charm. She has not let the fact that she serves on Hell’s side jade her. She still tries to hang on to her humanity and is a romantic softy at heart. It’s not easy being a succubus forced to sleep with countless men to stay alive when all she wants is a love of her own.

    Richelle Mead has done an excellent job of slowly weaving a complex overall arc to series that looks like it will have a big pay off for Georgina. She’s given us bread crumbs and now has finally given us a big chunk of that loaf of bread at the end of Succubus Shadows, one that I didn’t see coming.

    Succubus Shadows was very dark in the emotional department and I’m hoping for a ray of sunshine in Georgina’s ending but I have a feeling that she will have to go through a little more heartache to get there.
