Shelby Brooks learned she is a werewolf on the same night she learned that love and betrayal go hand in hand. She was 16. Now, going into her senior year in a new town, love is the last thing Shelby is looking for, but she finds herself irresistibly drawn to Kale, the son of an Alpha. As her heart slowly reopens to the possibility of happiness, threats mount, and her very presence brings mortal danger to Kale and his entire pack. Is her destiny to be a savior? Or a harbinger of death, as the Summer Omega prophecies foretell?
There were a couple of things that got on my nerves with this book. First, I don't like weak heroines. The author made this girl seem about 10 years old instead of 16 or 17 years old. Now it could be the narrator's voice for Shelby, it was very irritating as if she equated young with dumb. And oh my goodness the Cussing best friend was way too over the top, which scraped my nerves. I got past all that, and then we got to the battle. The battle was stupid, or maybe what was stupid was all the dialogue and internal angst between every punch! Good Lord!!! Why make your heroine, so stupid! Young does not equal stupid. smh

Mackenzie 'Mac' Wharton had agreed to guide a group that had wanted an adventure on her mountain. They got more than they bargained for when they were all abducted by a group of aliens called the Ganglians. Badly beaten and barely alive, Mac finds herself in the arms of the largest male she's ever seen. She should fear him, should be fighting to get away from him, but there was something about the massive male that called to her.
The book was interesting, but I have to say that Mac was a hypocrite. She wanted everyone to be 100 percent truthful with her, but she lied about Jen for the entire book. And also she was a bi$#h throughout most of the book. So, I guess if I feel this irritated with Mac, the book must be written well enough to illicit these feelings.

When people started getting sick, they thought it was just the flu. My roommate, my boyfriend, my family ...they're all gone now. I got sick too. I should have died with them-with the rest of the world-but I didn't. I thought witnessing the human population almost disappear off the face of the earth was the craziest thing I'd ever experience. I was so wrong. My name is Dani O'Connor, I'm twenty-six-years-old, and I survived the ending.
like previous reviewer said, I would kill myself too if I was stuck with these two!! Wimpy, whiney, and pathetic. I know the author said that the girls were over 25...how about you take that down a decade. I haven't been on here to give a review in a while, but I hate wasting my credits.......this was a waste.
I listened to about 6 hours...smh

Eighteen-year-old Myla Lewis is a girl who loves two things: kicking ass and kicking ass. She's not your everyday quasi-demon, half-demon, and half-human, girl. For the past five years, Myla has lived for the days she gets to fight in Purgatory's arena. When souls want a trial by combat for their right to enter heaven or hell, they go up against her, and she has not lost a battle yet.
This was the first book that I have listened to where the author was the narrator. She was AWESOME!!!!! She made the book!
Nice world building and very engaging characters. I just downloaded the second book.
Arianna is a queen heir and at 20 years old she's now eligible for the crown of wolf shifters. Heirs are trained and groomed so that they're ready should the queen perish during their time of eligibility. Of course, there's little chance of that happening. The Red Queen has stood for a century, and her power is beyond reckoning. Or so Arianna believes, right up until the final tolling of the bells. The queen has fallen. Four heirs will now fight it out for the crown.
The plot was interesting and narrator was excellent, but I felt like half of the book was a lecture! If you compile all of the actual conversations, it would all fit into one chapter. This may be because of the world building that occures at the beginning of a series, am not sure. I am hoping that the next book has more actual dialog. So overall I'm willing to spend another credit on the 2nd book.

Cassie Forrest isn't surprised to learn that the day she’s decided to get her life together is also the day the world ends. After all, she’s been on a self-imposed losing streak since her survivalist parents died: she’s stopped painting, broken off her engagement to Adrian and dated a real jerk. Rectifying her mistakes has to wait, however, because Cassie and her friends have just enough time to escape Brooklyn for her parents’ cabin before Bornavirus LX turns them into zombies, too.
I really enjoyed this book! I am not a zombie fan. I don't like horror, but this book was about relationships with zombies as a background. And I was so glad for the happy ending.
Do Not miss this book, it was definitely worth my credit!

What happens when in order to win, you're forced to lose? The only daughter of an infamous Las Vegas pimp, Raven Morretti, grew up an outsider. Liberated from the neglectful home of her prostitute mother, she finds solace as a mechanic. With few friends, she's content with the simple life. Flying under the radar is all she knows and more than she expects. Until she catches the eye of local celebrity, UFL playboy, Jonah Slade.
Really? You already know who the characters are, so no need to go back over that.....But really?......I DO NOT LIKE wimpy women! Raven started off with a decent backbone and then it turned into a freakin noodle! I agree with one of the other reviewers...Jonah did turn on a dime, from man whore to a very caring hero. I am okay with that. I think Blake and the other secondary characters are good. I really liked Blake. But the finally battle!!!!! Just NO! Spoiler alert: So dear old Daddy tells me he wants me to carry on the family business with him being my Pimp.......soooooo, why in the hell would you ? Nope, I am just going to rely on everyone else to help me out of this situation, because really I just can't even try to do anything for myself. Why would you not carry a freaking gun, knife, taser.....how about a freaking tooth pick with a sharp edge? Nope, to freaking Stupid to Live. And then Mommy dearest steps in at the end to help out.....when she didn't do anything for the first 20 years of her life. Nope, to unbelievable! LOL So during the fight (which remember you couldn't do anything for yourself up to now) you decide Oh but no, I am not going to leave and run....I am not going to leave my man, I am going to go and save him! I am going to pick up the gun and take care of dear old dad myself......SMH
And why the hell didn't Candy get her a#$ kicked? What the heck happen to Karma?
Okay I am through ranting.....Out of all of that it was still a okay listen.
This could have been a better book for me if the Raven was less wimpy!

Brody is a talented motorcycle mechanic and werewolf stuck in his painful past. On yet another depressing night, he is viciously attacked by vampires. Fallon is a brilliant tattoo artist with inherent magic. Tired of men and their games, she climbs onto her Harley and leaves her old life behind. Running for his life, Brody crashes into Fallon and sparks fly. She ends up stranded in the Northwest with her ride out of commission.
Decent plot, I guess. Druids, werewolves, vampires, Fae, tattoo artist and Harleys! Parts of the book were kind of corny. But I think that is more because of the narrator. It sounded like cartoon characters. If anyone has ever heard the Pikachu cartoon, then you know exactly how the characters sound. (unfortunately, I am very familiar with how Pikachu sounds, because my children have tortured me on a daily bases for years with this cartoon!) The different voices and ranges are good, but most of the female voices sounded like peppy little pikachu characters hyped on an energy drink. The hero and heroine have deeper voices. Thank God! I think I would have liked the book more if I had read it.
I will probably purchase other books by the author as a kindle book. So this book was still worth it because it introduced me to another writer :).

No matter how much the paranormal politics of Atlanta change, one thing always remains the same: If there' s trouble, Kate Daniels will be in the middle of it. As the mate of the Beast Lord, Curran, former mercenary Kate Daniels has more responsibilities than it seems possible to juggle. Not only is she still struggling to keep her investigative business afloat, she must now deal with the affairs of the pack, including preparing her people for attack from Roland, a cruel ancient being with god-like powers.
This is a great addition to the collection. I was scared for a moment about half way through the book because I thought that this was the end. But take a deep breath, stay calm, hope is alive! lol We have more additions coming up :). Or at least it’s not the end. There is no need to go into details (mainly because everyone else has already done that) this is just a wonderful story and I look forward to each and every addition. I love Kate and I love Curran. I spend all year wishing for the months to past, waiting for the new book to come out, listen to it in one to two settings and then (sigh!) starting the wait back over again. It is a fantastic world that I love visiting.
Thank you llona Andrews for sharing your world with us.
Renee Raudman thank you for making that world come alive.
The combination of IA's writing and RR's narrating is a magical experience!

From the moment Josie laid eyes on sexy, mysterious Shane Dean, she was in love. Their desire ignited a passionate affair, and within weeks, Shane had slipped a ring on her finger. It seemed her every fantasy was coming true...until her new husband disappeared without a trace. Now, two years and one broken heart later, Josie is shocked when the hospital calls: Shane has been found...at a crime scene with no memory of how he got there.
I liked the characters. The heroine was strong without being a She-ra. Don't you hate whiny heroines? She was smart and likeable. The hero was strong without being cold and uncaring. You really emphasized with the hero's childhood. This series reminds me of Christine Feehan's GhostWalker series. The series has action and an intriguing plot. Kept my interest enough that I looked for the second in the series. (Not on Audible yet :( ) I am putting the book in my wish list so that I can remember to check for the second book.
Rebecca Zanetti was nice enough to include an excerpt from the second book in this one.
I also liked the voices. Karen White did an excellent job!
This one was worth my credit :)
