Derek Brighton has become one of Dallas's finest detectives through a combination of discipline and obsession. Once he has a target in his sights, nothing can stop him. When he isn't solving homicides, he applies the same intensity to his playtime at Sanctum, a secretive BDSM club. Unfortunately, no amount of beautiful submissives can fill the hole that one woman left in his heart.

Addiction is a sketchy word but very appropriate when describing my book reading obsession. This series has some amazing stories and authors. Each story pulls me in deeper with strong alpha man who worship their women. But don't think the women don't have their own strengths. Derek and Karina have heat, passion and strengths that have to go into play in order to find a serial killer. Well told with perfect balance.

Zhubaal, fallen angel assistant to the Grim Reaper, has spent decades searching for the angel he loved and lost nearly a century ago. Not even her death can keep him from trying to find her, not when he knows she's been given a second chance at life in a new body. But as time passes, he's losing hope, and he wonders how much longer he can hold to the oath he swore to her so long ago....

I'm drawn into the magickical world Larissa Ione has weaved. Who would think demons, fallen angels, the four horsemen along with a demon hospital could have such an intense appeal. Now add these awesome stories to the 1001 Dsrk Nights series and now I have an obsession. Z is so much better than I hoped. Finding the soul of his deceased love Laura was touching but him opening his mind and heart to Vex was obscenely erotic. I love this author and the way her books all connect with each other. Obsessive fan here 😏

Even in the fathomless depths of the underworld and the bleak chambers of a damaged heart, the bonds of love can heal...or destroy. He holds the ability to annihilate souls in the palm of his hand. He commands the respect of the most dangerous of demons and the most powerful of angels. He can seduce and dominate any female he wants with a mere look. But for all Azagoth's power, he's bound by shackles of his own making, and only an angel with a secret holds the key to his release.

It's been a while since I last read a book by Larissa. I love the horsemen, Underworld general and all things demonic. This story placed a HUGE smile on my face and giddiness in my soul, so much so that I'm going to reread this series from start to finish. liliana and Azagoth have inspired me to remember some of the authors and books that made me love reading. Highly recommended reading!

Straightlaced freshman Zooey Cartwright has arrived at UCLA determined to have a heck of a lot more fun in college than she did in high school. What's the first item on Zooey's agenda before classes start in two days? Losing her pesky V card. She's definitely not looking for a boyfriend, so where can Zooey find the right guy to do the deed and move along without a backward glance? At a party thrown by a bunch of football players, of course. Enter Tyler Caldwell. A beast on the field and off, cocky as heck, and often wearing T-shirts with sayings like "God's Gift to Womankind".

Would you listen to Misadventures of a College Girl again? Why?

After reading Lauren Rowe's Club series I fell deeply in stalker mode. Creepy but true.
Her sense of humor and ability to write some of the most sexy, intriguing characters total ensnared me. Yet, even with all the layers adding up to perfection, it wouldn't be worth reading without a story line to captivate you heart, mind and libido.
Lauren Rowe has given us all that and more. Now I find out she is an awesome narrator. Who would have thought?

I downloaded this book to listen to while driving and cleaning my house. Oh yeah! Once again she has hit it out of the park, over the rainbow etc....

Tyler is an amazing young man, full of life, adventure, and already has his life mapped out to perfection. Zoe is similar to Tyler but her life is mapped out in a different direction. Tyler is using football as a stepping stone to his ultimate goal where Zoe's goal is to perform. They both excel at their dreams but Zoe has one thing she wishes to do while at college and Tyler is just the man to help her accomplish that. Together these two are perfection.

The narration of this story but none other than the author was a huge surprise to me. She can not only tell a story in it's written form but has a way with expressing them in her narrative that none other would be able to match.

What did you like best about this story?


I highly recommend reading or listening to any and all of her books. I absolutely LOVED it!
I can't note a specific part of the story that had me falling over myself because it was awesome from start to finish.

After do many novels I still haven't tried or got bored. Now if our human makes were equally intense we'd all be walking around with a content smile on our faces 😚

For six generations, the women of wine country have had a saying: don’t bang a Hunter man unless you want a bun in your oven. Yeah, well. I’ve got a saying too: no thanks. The last thing I need is baby makes three. My business is expanding, and the only thing I’m interested in getting knocked up is my bottom line. But then one night, Emma Haverford makes me an offer I can’t refuse - she backs away from the land I have my eye on in exchange for a favor...a big, fat, baby-making favor....

That's what this book was. Awesome characters where we believe lust wins out. But does it?
Lust is just a building block to the overall prize that both main characters will learn. Descriptive along with alluring so much so I found myself breezing through rather quickly. I find myself wanting to recommend this book so others can enjoy it as much as I did

Norma Anders has always prided herself on her intelligence and determination. She climbed out of poverty and put herself through school and is now a chief financial advisor at Pierce Industries. She's certainly a woman who won't be topped. Not in business anyway. But she's pretty sure she'd like to be topped in the bedroom. Unfortunately most men see independence and ambition in a woman and they run. Even her dominant boss, Hudson Pierce, has turned down her advances.

I totally loved Norma and Boyds dynamics. Both strong characters who have control in different aspects of their lives. Put togetherr they are the perfect balance. Wonderfully told with a slight bdsm theme yet so much more strength in the characters.

Lauren Blakely has managed to endear me with another of her stories. This one has a twist or two but is so sweet and cute. Told as if watching a narrated movie where as the match maker gets the gut without knowing she even looking. A quick listen with a heart warming outcome.
