So you may ask, who is Adam Connor? He is the recently divorced, Academy Award-winning actor who just moved in next door with his kid. He also happens to be an exquisite male specimen and the most infuriating sly bastard I've ever come across. While I was being thoughtful by not breaking and entering, and was actually considering going over to offer him a shoulder to cry on (you know, because of his divorce), instead he had me thrown in jail after a small incident. Jail, people!

I love a DILF!! Hahahaha

What!?!

We need some good DILF stories and this was awesome. I loved it from the very beginning to the end. Why did it take me so long to listen to it?!?
I am a huge fan of the narration, so I really had no excuses just that maybe I waited until I could truly appreciate this story.

I loved the Adam was not only an awesome dad but a movie star... I think I need to read more of them because I was sucked in. I like the bodyguard. ;)

Omg Aidan is the cuties little human!! The relationship he and Lucy forge is sweet and special and I loved that we saw the little boy fall in love with her before Adam did. ;)

We also get Olive and Jason too which was really nice and how the friendship between Olive and Lucy was so strong I just loved it. Sigh what a great book!

If you want good banter and an even better romance this is the book for you.

I enjoyed the banter between Elle and Darien.
I can’t really think of anything I didn’t like I just enjoyed the story. I think I might have been spoiled because of another book I read along the same lines.

I wouldn’t say I didn’t like this story because I did. But I kinda just like the other one more. :)

Still a great YA book. And I loved the narration they really suck you in.

The only thing hotter than the weather south of the Mason Dixon line are the boys. Worn, faded blue jeans, slow southern drawls, and those naughty moments in the back of pickup trucks a girl never forgets. Welcome to the world of the Sutton boys. Five brothers who fight, party, and drink a little too much, but, more importantly, they love their momma. Nothing can tear them apart...except women. Especially a redheaded beauty with secrets.

Ok, I enjoyed the book maybe a little more than the first because I knew the character. And I wanted to know how it was going to work out.

I love Abbi’s style of writing, and I loved that she had all the brothers involved. And again I love their momma.

I guess what I don’t get was why there was a Diesel at all. We didn’t really need him. Scarlett and everything that was going on with her was enough of a storyline without adding in this Diesel fella.

I think this story was genuine and different but I think the ending was rushed and I wished it hadn’t been.

I liked the narrations, took a little bit for me to like Patrick as Bray but once I got into his way of narrating it was all good.

I was looking for something different, and I am so flipping glad I took a chance on this book!

I am not a HUGE fan of YA, because usually there is just too much immature dramalama and it drives me nuts. But I am going to say it... This book had drama yes but in a way that flows with the book.

I was enthralled with Ella, and Cinder and their relationship. I didn’t want to stop listening at any point and I was even sorry when the book ended I wanted more, more, more.

It really is a twist on the Cinderella tale but in a completely fresh way. We really get to know the characters well and not just on the surface. This book reminds me of The Sea of Tranquility if anyone has read that YA novel you know what I mean by the depth of a YA book.

Ella has a lot of bad going for her but I loved her tenacity, is she broken down? Sure, but she doesn’t make it anyone’s fault when she could. I wouldn’t say she just takes it but she is coping the very best way she knows how.
I loved how she asks for help and picks herself up.

Cinder was delicious but it was more than that, you fall in love with his heart. His character is just one of those characters you want to keep for yourself. I am calling it he is my BOOK BOYFRIEND.. Back off Ladies :p

I loved the narration!! I don’t know what a Boston accent is but I would think Kirsten nailed it. Because it wasn’t on every word but it was there. I liked her male voice too... ;)

Also really wished this author had more audiobooks because I was going to go get more... :(

Ok I know it has been a while since I finished this series and I just haven’t had the time to write my review but I have to say it these books surprised me in the most awesome of ways.

Not only did all three books keep my attention but I looked forward to them. And I will be the first to tell you when book three started I was a little skeptical because we have a new character but also Kris was only briefly mentioned in the other books so I wasn’t expecting him to get his own book. But again I am so glad he did.

The introduction of Sera was interesting and done in such a way that I couldn’t stop listening. I loved her feistiness and her spirit. Kris’s grandma had that kind of spirit and I liked the introduction of her as well. It fits with everything going on that was different from the other two books but it worked.

I am sorry to see this series come to an end, I really thought there would be one more to bring it full circle, maybe one day.

And I have to say I loved the narration, can’t think if I have ever listened to this narrator before but she really brought the books to life in my ears.

I gotta say I wasn’t expecting each book in the series to be a different couple but boy am I glad it was.

Kori is a character you won’t soon forget her story is powerful and heart breaking. But soo sweet too because the love she finds is unbreakable.

I really can’t say much without giving a lot away but just know that this book is probably going to be my favorite of the series.

I again loved the narration and can’t wait to dive in to book 3

Usually it takes a good while to like a book 1 because of all the story building and world building but I got to say I really enjoyed this book right from the very beginning to the end. It was easy to get swept away in.

I think because it isn’t your regular “paranormal” meaning vamps and shifter.

I liked the oath part of this whole book, and how giving you your word can and does come to bit you in the booty. But the way Liv and her friends work around their oaths really had me intrigued.

I am not going to give you a summary of the book if you want that then keep scrolling I am sure others have done that.

What I will say is I loved the friend connection and the romantic interest in this book and how things are not always as they seem. I am invested and need to know more about these characters so I am ready to jump on to book 2.

I really enjoyed the narration, I can’t recall ever listening to this narrator but I think she did a good job bringing this world to life in my ears.

I would completely recommend this book if you’re a little tired of the normal paranormal and looking for a great YA story.

Time. That's all I have now. A small room, a photograph, and time. They want me to trust them and confess my sins. They told me they wouldn't judge me - they lied. I thought we could convince the world that this wasn't a crime. We were wrong. Time doesn't stand still. The clock keeps ticking, the world is unconvinced, and now… Now he is gone.

What a perfect name for what I just listened to!?!?

I don’t know if I liked it… If I hated it… If I loved it…

It has me thinking all kinds of stuff, like what the HECK man!!

I am not a fan of past and present it always messes me up but I will be da – m - ned it I wasn’t intrigued by the present and need to know what happened in the past to get there.

I swear this book has me all kinds of knots I don’t know which way is up or down. Did I like them together? Did I think she was very force full? Did I think he could have resisted?? I don’t know!! I swear I wish I could say yes or no to any of those but I really just don’t know.

And that ending I can’t even tell if I liked it because I am on the fence about it all...

Soooo I am 5 staring this book because of everything I mentioned up there…

And the narration… Well, stick a fork in me cause I am DONE. It was exactly what this book needed.

I never imagined the drama that would ensue once Dwight stepped into my life. All I wanted to do was to make a name for myself - to claim my little piece of the pie - and buy the neighborhood bar I've been working at for the last few years. Little did I know that I'd be attracting the Wolf Brotherhood into my life.

I really liked this more than I thought I would. There are some who just can’t pull off the world building you need to have for short stories. I feel like Meg did a great job not only with the world building but the characters didn’t suffer either there was enough detail for both to really suck you into this mini-series.

I very much enjoyed part one, because you think one way and you find out you’re not entirely right or wrong.
Don’t judge the book by the first part because there is so much more to the story than what happens in part 1.

Part two things really start to come together. And you need to know more, there isn’t really a lot of world-building in this part because we already have most of it from part 1.

And part three just brings it all together. I loved the characters and how they intertwine. I loved that the women are kicked butt girls who did what needed to be done. But I also loved the males that love them because they were there for them no matter what.

I also really liked the narration, I think it was well done for this book and I would listen to more.

Ok so overall the story was good, I am just not a fan of the beginning it really took me a while to get into the book. The struggle for me is “mafia princess” and how she is protecting him only it causes more pain.

I don’t know I just had a hard time connecting with, that then boom a few years later and know it feels like he is going to get some kind of revenge.

It does get better but by then I was really only half listening and I hate that because I normally love these authors.

Maybe it just wasn’t for me and will be for someone else.

I enjoyed the narration they really did a great job.
