Jolie Louis is a smart girl. She knows that her best friend, Sage Poirier, is a bad idea. He's a walking, talking cliché. The Adonis quarterback with the bulging biceps and harem of fangirls trailing behind him on campus like a stench you can't get rid of. Sadly, that's also the reason she can't stay away from him. Well, that and the fact that they're roommates. Jolie is already straddling the line between friendship and more when Sage comes to her with an offer she cannot refuse.

This listen is perfect for those who just want to drift away into another world. It's a very enjoyable, young adult read. I loved that the characters had been childhood friends and stuck together through college. This is a feel good, angst free listen.

I'm a man without a conscience. I deal in murder and mayhem. I'm the best at what I do. Frankie Helburn is supposed to be an easy job. A means to flush her father out of hiding. Simple. Except there isn't anything simple about Frankie or the secrets she's keeping. She's stubborn as hell and the sexiest god damn thing I have ever seen, sending dark, dirty animalistic desire coursing through my veins. She's cocaine with legs. A f--king addiction that makes me question things I've never questioned before.

This somewhat dark, anti-hero romance is filled with lots of good feels. I enjoyed the narration, the plot, the characters ..... best listen in a very long time. Even though this is part of the King Series, it can be read as a stand alone. Lately it seems that is hard to find an enjoyable and entertaining listen, but as usual Frazier delivers!

It wasn't supposed to be like this.... I wasn't supposed to be boyfriendless, homeless, and jobless at 28. And I most definitely wasn't supposed to hit Hollywood's resident bad boy Gabriel Evans with my car and break his foot. Now I'm stuck in his apartment, taking care of him while he's incapacitated. Living with the hottest guy in Hollywood, who I've had a crush on forever, doesn't sound like a chore, right? Wrong. Gabriel Evans is rude and crude and drinks way too much, and as soon as his foot is healed I'm out of here. So why do I keep forgetting to check the classifieds?

This book is definitely one to listen if you are feeling down. I laughed out loud, literally, several times throughout the book. There is just enough angst and romance to keep it interesting, but overall I loved the quirky character of the heroine.

Nora O'Brien chased a dream from Indiana to Scotland, so sure it was the right thing to do. Three years later she was left in her adopted country with nothing to her name but guilt and regret. Until Aidan Lennox entered her life. Older, worldlier, a music producer and composer, the sexy Scot should never have made sense for Nora. But somehow in each other they found the light they were looking for, the laughter and the passion - the strength to play on despite their past losses.

Samantha Young is one of my favorite audio authors. I have her on auto down load because I know that her stories are entertaining in a real life sort of way. This story has charm, love and angst and just enough hotness to make it interesting. The book description pretty much sums up the story. However, this book is a journey of discovery and over coming and accepting choices that are made in life. Definitely worth a credit or sale.

Some days, all you need is a message from a stranger. Ruby Santos knew exactly what she was getting herself into when she signed up to write a soldier overseas. The guidelines were simple: one letter or email a week for the length of his or her deployment. Care packages were optional. Been there, done that. She thought she knew what to expect. What she didn't count on was falling in love with the guy.

If you have listened/read Mariana Zapata you know that she is beyond talented, has attention to detail and can write in detail about her characters. Usually I find myself emotionally invested in her characters .... KULTI is still one of my favorite all time reads and listens. Zapata is known for her "slow burn" and this book is no exception. I did enjoy the story line. I liked the idea of them getting to know each other through letters before meeting. It gives a different perspective on relationship and is relevant in today's dating climate. Although this was not my favorite of her books, it is a compelling and well written story, but do not expect it to be the same caliber as KULTI or THE WALL OF WINNIPEG.

When small-town Nebraska sheriff Hixon Drake meets Greta Dare, the connection couldn't be stronger, but the timing couldn't be worse. Dealing with the fallout of a divorce he never wanted and setting up a new home for his kids, Hix becomes that guy, that one he never wanted to be, and puts a stop to things before they can even start. Protecting his kids and himself is his only priority. Greta, on the other hand, has found the place for her and the brother she adores that's perfect for them - a sleepy little town in Nebraska.

This story truly was a complicated listen. It involves two people who have been hurt by the one's they love and are learning to move on without the people they love. Little did they know when they found each other it would not be an instant love attraction, but a relationship that would slowly materialize built upon respect as well as attraction. This couple journey of discovering love again, navigating ex's and learning to become part of an extended family is a beautiful and realistic journey. I highly recommend this listen.

Once, I was nothing. Hungry, abandoned, wandering, and alone. An adolescent street rat fighting for crumbs. Then a chance encounter changed my entire world. A man in an expensive suit asked me how much my life was worth. I didn't have an answer because I didn't know. He asked if I thought it was worth killing for. Impulsively, I said yes.... He found me, then fostered me, and, in the interim, turned me into a killing machine.

Have you ever set out to have a one night stand with a sexy stranger? No? I’m the only one? Just kidding, I would never. Ever. Not usually. But then I figured, why not? My entire life I’ve been good and it’s gotten me nowhere. No job. No apartment. No boyfriend. I’m owed a little fun, aren’t I?

This story is one of the best I have listened to by Kristen Ashley. Ashley's writing does not leave any detail to chance making it easy to visualize the story while listening. As with most of her stories you have two slightly damaged people who come to terms with being in an adult relationship and all the struggles that come with it.t I used a credit for this story and feel as if I got my money's worth!

Vaughn Johansson is the Nashville Assassins' star player. He's brash, cocky, and talented. And he isn't afraid to let anyone know it. He lives his life on his own terms, never forming romantic attachments, and only allowing his very closest to see his true, caring self. Brie Soledad has the weight of the world on her shoulders. As the staff reporter for the Assassins, she balances her high-profile job and its heavy travel schedule with being the sole provider for her adult brother with Down syndrome. Sure, she'd like to find love. But who has time for that?

I have listened to most of the books in this series and find them enjoyable when I need a mindless listen. These stories are easy going love stories that don't wear your brain out, but help you relax and listen. Despite this being the 10th book in the series, Also always manages to put some kind of new spin on her stories. I knocked the story down a star just because of the length of the book. I don't think it needed to be so long to get the story told. Overall I recommend listening if you want a fun, mindless listen.
