At fifteen I fell in love. His name was Jake Stephens and he took the abandoned, lonely girl I had been and made me whole. His love was a pure and unconditional love that made every day better than the last; a fairy tale of my very own. But this story isn't about Jake. It's about Abel Madden; the man I meet after the fairy tale goes to hell. A cocky, arrogant man who says what he wants, does as he pleases, and makes no excuses for it. He irritates me--downright pisses me off at times--but he also brings me back to life.

This book is great. I loved the characters and the small town of loving friends and family. Sidney was fortunate to find true love twice in her lifetime. This sorry will grab your emotions and have you crying. Narrators did an excellent job.

Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything. So when an injury threatens to end Easton's season early, the team calls in renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it's not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather, his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him.

I give this book 4 1/2 stars. I'm not a baseball type of person but this book was good and it held my attention. Easton and Scout were great together. The book did end abruptly and I had to check my iPad to make sure it was the end. There is a cliff hanger and I immediately got the next book because I just had to know what happened.

My name is Jason Hart. As the best defensive lineman in the country, I eat, sleep, and breathe football. That is, until I have a random meeting with a little boy that just lost his father. We have more in common than you might think and it creates an unlikely bond. As our friendship grows, so do my feelings for his mother. I know Addison, as a recent widow, isn't ready to date again. But I want to get to know her better in spite of all her rejections. Is it possible that I, a self-proclaimed bachelor, could be having a Change of Hart?

I never thought this could happen to me. I never imagined one chance meeting on the eve of my eighteenth birthday could change my life so completely. Now I belong to him. To Julian. To a man who is as ruthless as he is beautiful - a man whose touch makes me burn. A man whose tenderness I find more devastating than his cruelty.

This was a great story. It was emotional and heartbreaking. Maggie suffered so much as a young girl. Asher enters her life and helps her learn to love again. I do think there was some things left unanswered.

Every new relationship has obstacles, it just turns out that ours involves my bumbling inexperience, an octogenarian naughty toy party, and being on the run in an RV with Aunt Tilly. When my biological father takes his homophobic views on a national platform, the only way to stand up for what I believe in is to claim my past and confront him. So now it's time to decide: Do I put the past behind me and walk away from AJ for good? Or face my biggest fear and fight for what's mine?

Kathryn Le Veque is a new author for me and she is awesome. This is about the 6th book I have listened to back to back and they are all amazing. Sir Matthew is against marriage for 10 years until he set eyes on his wife to be. I loved how Sir Matthew and Lady Alixandrea talked though there problems. It was great seeing Gaston De Russe-The Dark One and Matthew's best friend in this story. Such a powerful ending. Matthew pays the ultimate sacrifice for friendship.

This is another great story by Kathryn Le Veque. I have not listen to a book by the author yet, that I didn't love. This is a non-stop listen. My husband and I stayed up to 3 in the morning listening to this book. This book is very entertaining. I liked how the young King is timid in the beginning, but starts to turn into a stronger king towards the end. Brad Wills does an excellent job with narrating, especially with young King Henry.

This was a good read. Justine is dealing with a mother that's in debt, a controlling father, a psychopath ex, a guy who is afraid to admit his feelings for her, and an alcoholic has been actress. The audiobook kept repeating lines all though out the book. It was a little annoying.
