I fell in love with Holden York when I was six years old. Most of my youth came with spiral notebooks filled with doodles, wedding plans, and "Janelle York" looped in bubbly handwriting. However, one night in Vegas changed everything. I woke up to more than just a fantasy of my brother's best friend. Five years later, I'm standing on his doorstep confronting him about the secret he kept from me. If you think this is the story of how we rode off into the sunset together...You're so wrong.

I was pleased with this story. It had a unique story line, likable characters and pleasant narration. This was what I would call a sweet- brothers best friend- romance. Their relationship is completely unorthodox from the beginning however over time, they find their way. Holden was the token good guy and Janelle the best friend's younger sister who has some growing up to do.

I had no complaints on narration. Both voices were clear and pleasant. Great job

Through the series we have been growing to know the characters more and more. Each seems to have their own set of issues. This installment comes with more of the same plus more danger and more surprises. I feel like the characters are still being tentative with each other. I am eager for the next phase of their relationship.

The narration is fabulous. The book is great but the narration elevates it and truly bring the characters to life. It would be hard to picture it with another narrator. Melissa does a wonderful job- I love it!

Winning had never been the plan. I just wanted to go home. I still do. Now, I'm in too deep. With my conversion only days away, the count down has begun. When it hits zero, I lose. My only hope is to rely on the one who brought me here in the first place. A few unlikely friends might make all the difference between the Fold winning and a revolution. If I can stay alive that long.

This series is a great new spin a dystopian PNR Cinderella story. I love the characters- well... I hate some of the characters but only because they are pure evil! The plot line is unique. I like that what once started as a Cinderella story has morphed into something much much more and nothing like you would have expected. I was riveted and can't wait for the next installment.

Narration is a dream! Melissa lends such soul to the characters she narrates for. She brings them to life and gives them voice- and what a voice it is! Absolutely a pleasure to listen to.

When Diana woke up on her 23rd birthday, she did not think she was going to become the center in a galactic race to win her heart. None too pleased with the prospect of alien races descending on Earth to try to woo her, Diana does the only reasonable thing she can; she runs. Now she has to try and find a way to get rid of the blasted bracelet that is the cause of all the recent craziness in her life. The problem is this isn't an ordinary bracelet; it contains the Heart of the Cosmos. Furthermore, the Cosmos chose her for a reason.

This book was more fantasy than any others i have read. I really enjoyed the different species and the creativity that went into creating this fantastical universe. The characters were great and it truly was a fun ride.

Narration was good. I really liked the voice however there was a bit of audio echo and voice feedback that detracted from the experience. I really think I would love the narration if the audio clarity was a little better. It was still good though!

I've always been the shy, quiet one. My best friend, the fun-loving, outgoing one. When she's gone, taken away entirely way too soon, I have to learn how to live. And not just for me, but for her too. I have to live for the both of us. That means doing things I'd never do, stepping out of the shadows to join the rest of the world - taking chances, falling in love, and getting into a little trouble along the way.

The Story continues! This book continues the adventure and in no way disappoints. The characters are all still growing as a harem and settling into their roles and finding their footing. While their relationships still develop, they also have to worry about outside forces trying to destroy what they have and take power for themselves. I love the story and can't wait to continue the adventure.

The narration is fantastic. Melissa's voice is very enjoyable not to mention she brings great life to each and every character. The production is clean and well edited. Great Audio!

He was the man of my dreams, or so I thought. I wasn't sure how I'd react when I saw him again. I planned on avoiding him, but our small hometown made that impossible. The years apart melted away when I saw him. Time hadn't changed my feelings, after all. Jealousy flared anew. My heart, which I thought had healed, was back to being in a million pieces. Now I'm right where I don't want to be - in front of him with tears in my eyes.

This book was an amazing journey through some very emotional times. Michelle has given us some amazing character that you connect with immediately. You feel their love and their pain through her amazing story telling. She provided us this heart shattering story and Tor and Charley brought it to life. Their narration truly adds something special to this touching love story. Great Listen!

Greyson Ratcliffe. I met him at 16, the hot new guy sitting on my jetty, an aspiring artist just passing through. He was my first kiss and my first love. I wanted forever with him. I didn't even get a year. Five years later, I'm a budding writer who scripts stories of love and struggle, the good and the bad and the ups and the downs. He's a star on the rise - his wicked talent and crazy good looks have his face plastered on countless magazines. We move in two different worlds and still our paths cross again. We're older and wiser and as crazy about each other as we were as teenagers.

This was such a great and heart warming story~ I loved every second of it. It was great how up followed the characters for most of their life vs a small chunk of time. Their love was an absolute please to watch develop.

The narration was awesome! Tracy and Aaron do a fantastic job of bringing these characters to life! Aaron's Irish accent was... well.... just plain yummy! They were a great team for a wonderful story!

When romance novelist Kate Smith suddenly gets writer's block as she's beginning the final installment of her international best-selling erotic Bed 'n Breakfast series, she'll do pretty much anything to get her groove back. Like sneak into a Tire Depot waiting room because her words flow there just like complimentary coffee - smooth, sweet, and scorchingly hot. She manages to fly under the radar until the rugged and charming mechanic, Miles Hudson, notices the quirky redhead slinking in and out of the employees-only entrance. But she's way too intriguing to blow the whistle on.

I don't know what I loved more... the magnificent writing or the drool worthy narrations! This book had it all! The writing was soo funny~ It pulls you in from the start and never lets you go. The quick wit, the verbal sparring, and oh dear god... the CHEMISTRY! I could feel everything they were going through and oh man, was it a ride!

Erin Mallon and Tedddy Hamilton did BEYOND a fabulous job! They both brought these characters to life in vibrant- in your face- color. They blew me away!
