All it takes is one night of passion to change your life forever. Layla’s trip to the Middle East started off with a bang. Amid the sultry heat and exotic luxury of Dubai, she shared a single night of passion in the arms of a sexy stranger. Layla can’t say she regrets it, until she walks into her new HR job and comes face to face with her one-night stand. She never thought she’d see the sinfully handsome Sheikh again, but his icy reception makes it clear he wants nothing to do with her.

I have enjoyed both previous books in the Almasi Sheikhs Series. I love Leslie North writing style. She weaves such a captivating and unique tale that keeps you totally enthralled from beginning to conclusion!

Narration is well done and brings the story to life.

The characters are interesting and fun! Layla is ready for a long vacation but finds herself in an interview for a job she had not been looking for! On top of everything, her handsome one night stand is to be her future boss!!!

Outstanding story with a sweet HEA conclusion . I’m already looking forward to my next Leslie North Romance!

Timeless is an outstanding book and I was pleasantly surprised to see that the story continues on Fearless. Please read Timeless before reading this book. You won’t be disappointed! Jenny and Genevieve are adjusting to their new reality when Maurelle manage to switch them again!

Narration was great and brought the story to life!

I cannot imagine how frustrating it is to be in your wedding day and then all of a sudden you are thrown back into your old life! It is a bittersweet moment for both Jenny and Genevieve!

I was pleasantly surprised with all the twists and turns. Several questions I had after reading Timeless are answered in this book. The story sucks you in and keeps you entertained all the way to the conclusion!

If you like fairytales, magic, time travel, a touch of romance and great twists, this fantasy series is for you! I’m so looking forward to the next fairytale twist in this series!

This is book 2 in the Divine Fate Trilogy. The story continues with Ryn attending an angels only high school. A bit of a love triangle develops. Ryn is training in secret to hide her unique purple “fireball” ability. (ok, I know it’s not a fireball!)

Narration was good and brought the story to life.

Ryn is trying to find Grace. The demons are doing anything they can to stop her. The future of the Davina are at stake. The future of the world depends on reaching Grace. This book does not have a major cliffhanger, but I was not ready for it be over! I’m looking forward to book 3!

Luxury real estate agent Adeline Peluso came to Italy in search of adventure. Inheriting an apartment with a view of the coast in Sicily sounded like something out of a movie, but after two years spent watching a resort she’d always loved fall to pieces she’s ready to throw in the proverbial towel ... that is until one of the owners finally walks into her office. Tall, dark, and devastatingly handsome, the man would drive her crazy with his arguments if he didn’t set her aflame with his kisses. Billionaire Nicolo Romano is a global citizen.

This is a great start to the Romano Brothers series. This story is set in Sicily where the brothers have inherited a centuries old resort. They plan on selling the resort so someone can destroy it and rebuild a new project, but Adeline wants to save the resort and keep the rich history intact.

Narration was excellent and brought the story to life.

Adeline goes through great lengths to manipulate things to go according to what she wants. Nicolo has no roots anywhere and likes being on the go all the time. He wants to be the best at what he does and a great opportunity opens up for him in India. Adeline applies to a job in Spain... Will circumstances pull them apart? Will the resort get another chance to shine and get back to what it once was?

I love Leslie North books! Her stories are great and all locations captivating. I’m looking forward to getting to know the other brothers in next books.

This is a great suspenseful romance! If you are familiar with Leslie North you know she has a talent of weaving an amazing tale with a strong heroine and a tall, dark, and handsome Hero. I love her Sheikh’s stories and the amazing places I get to explore in her books.

Narration was excellent and brought the story to life.

I don’t think I have ever heard the name Wynifred before! She is an author of an upcoming book called “Love Solves All”. She is brought in as a mediator to get cousins to heal a deep set rift.

Rameez and Haris start competing for her attention instead of working on mending their relationship. Tensions mount when a dangerous collector joins in trying to get his hands on Rameez’s new acquired Island.

Excellent story with a HEA conclusion.

How would you like to read minds? Freeze time itself? See any place in the world through a mirror? It may sound glamorous and exciting, but to the teenagers manifesting these talents, it is the beginning of a terrifying adventure that will challenge everything they thought they knew. In a sleepy California town, five teenagers discover that they are part of a secret struggle, with talents that none of them ever imagined. Before they know it, they're plunged into an ancient battle of good versus evil that will question everything they know about the world, and themselves.

This listen was even better than I expected it. The idea of ancient warriors being reborn many times was unique. There are several main characters which made it a bit hard to keep them straight in my head. I had to pay close attention to keep up with who was who. There were five teens coming into their powers, a warrior mentor figure, a long lost father that can track new warriors coming of age, the brothers, and a scary Elder.

Narration was good and brought the story to life.

Character development was ok although I would have liked to learn more about each teen. I’m hoping there will be more books with focus in each one of the main characters.

The bad guys were truly crazy villains with no regard to human casualties. They thought nothing of just killing a whole city to erase their problems! They were truly outrageous bad guys!

The way things came together at the end was great and I really liked the way things wrapped up nicely but left an opening for something more... Hopefully more books in this fun world with teens that have amazing “talents”.

This series is different than anything I have previously read. I would strongly encourage anyone to start with Fallen to Grace, book 1 in this series, so you can understand where the characters are coming from. This series is well written and there are quite a few twists to make it captivating.

Narration was good and brought the characters to life.

The story starts slow but once things pick up it is a fun adventure with suspense and unique developments. Azrael is a such a strong determined character and there are such great secondary characters that add to the experience.

Together humans, Angels, and demons work to take the power away from the Seraphim and abolish slavery of Angels.

Make sure you start listening to this story early in the day or you might end up staying up most of the night trying to find a good spot to pause! It was that good! I could not put it down once the story sucked me in!

This is an outstanding space fantasy romance! There is magic, prophecies, action, love, and wars. It is truly an addicting book that is hard to put down!

This book was much better than I expected! Scarlett is tired of always being a bridesmaid and never the bride. She doesn’t do one night stands but as upset as she gets after yet another wedding she might step out of her comfort zone.

Narration was well done and brought the story to life.

Zach is pretty much a no strings attached kind of guy. Scarlett and him have been friends for awhile. This is one of the few times Scarlett and him are unattached and he decides to make a proposition to her.

There is quite a bit of things that happen in a short span of time! There is some drama and misunderstandings that lead to more complications. It is a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. I think she forgave him a bit too soon... but everything wraps up in a nice HEA.

High up in their castle they look down on my little world and wield a silent control. That is, until the invitations are sent out. I never dreamed I'd be selected. They tell me it's a privilege. I should be honored. But the fear in their eyes doesn't lie. If I refuse to go, my family will be shunned. If I go, my life and my body will no longer be mine. It'll be theirs. At midnight it will be over. At midnight, I'll be his.

This is definitely different than any fairy tale I have ever read. Very unique story line with some great characters and some not so great characters that try to hurt their competitors.
