Maxine Reynolds knows it is careless to read naughty stories on her phone while driving, but she is utterly shocked by the consequences when she rear-ends ex-CIA agent Rafe Jennings, the head of security at her place of work. After scolding her for her reckless and unacceptable behavior, he proceeds to give her exactly what she needs - a long, hard, thoroughly embarrassing bare-bottom spanking followed by a belt whipping over the edge of his desk.

Unacceptable Behavior is a stand alone domestic discipline romance. Maxine has a tiny problem - she’s become addicted to reading naughty books on her phone! This tiny problem becomes huge, though, when it causes a car accident with Rafe, the man she has a crush on. Soon she’s been disciplined and realizes that Rafe returns her liking, but when he’s taken away from her for a mission, she starts to spiral. Can Rafe bring back Maxine from the edge of her self destructive actions with a firm hand and a lot of love?

This book really resonated with a part of me, because let’s face it, I’m addicted to reading romances on my phone, too! Maxine and Rafe definitely didn’t have an easy path to their romance, but I loved that he proved to her over and over how much he cared and wanted her safe! Maxine had her own insecurities that caused havoc and Rafe was dominant enough to take on her sass. I really enjoyed listening to this book and Mr. Calihan did a fantastic job bringing the characters to life! His voice definitely portrays the dominant tone that I expect Rafe to have! This book was fun, fast paced, and full of firm hands and love!

Right Girl, Wrong Alpha is the second book in the Brothers of the Heart series. Natasha has grown up knowing that she’s going to be the mate to an alpha. What she wasn’t expecting is being the mate to a Chief of a bear shifting clan! When she meets Logan, she knows that they’re meant to be together, but with trouble brewing in her pack, can Logan keep her safe and steal her heart?

Even though this was a second book to the series, I never once felt lost or confused. I really enjoyed the dynamic between Logan and Natasha and all that they needed to overcome to be happy together. This was a shorter story but built a lot for the series, I think. Logan and Natasha were loyal and I loved that they wanted to protect each other, their families, and their pack/clan. Ms. Anderson did a great job with narrating the story and bringing the characters and emotions to life! I enjoyed my time spent listening to this Shifter romance!

Alpha’s Obsession is the fifth book in the Bad Boy Alphas Series. Sam feels broken, his only goal is to find and kill the man and operation who tortured him. This is how he meets Layne. She’s a doctor with pure intentions, he kidnaps her, and somehow they find a bond that starts to connect them. But with revenge in his heart, her health declining, and a corporation after them all, will they be able to find and accept love?

Wow, this book was fantastic! I loved both Sam and Layne and I loved their interactions together. Sam had such a hard life and my heart just ached with his need for revenge. Layne was driven, pragmatic, and cared so deeply. I love how she brought sunshine to Sam’s darkness and I loved how well they fought together. The ending - holy smokes, the ending was action packed, life altering, and I can’t wait to see some of the ramifications for the future books in the series! Mr. Sands did an amazing job narrating this book, bringing the characters to life, helping me feel even more for both Layne and Sam! All together, Ms. Lee, Ms. Rose, and Mr. Sands really just took me away into this edgy world of possessive shifters, danger, and most of all, finding love.

His Girl, His Rules is a romance all about finding your inner needs and going after what you love. Glory is an author with BDSM and erotica themes, but she’s still a virgin. Deciding to be brave, she attends a BDSM club where’s she’s matched to Gabriel, a widower who’s suddenly very attached to Glory. A new relationship, adding in domestic discipline, and a reckless submissive, can Glory and Gabriel navigate their challenges and come out as a stronger couple?

While there wasn’t anything overly shocking about this book, I was still completely engaged in the plot, in the characters, and in their relationship! I wanted to know how Glory would respond to things, and how Gabriel would punish her. They definitely jumped right into their relationship and scenes, and there was a little bit of an insta-lust and insta-love feeling to the book, I really enjoyed Glory and Gabriel. Glory was a little sassy, but just so used to being on her own and everything was so new to her. Gabriel was strict, but never harmed, and he had so much love to give to Glory! Mr. Calihan did a fabulous job bringing the characters to life and I loved that he even acted out some of the motions, like yawning and gasping. This was a great book to listen to and to just lose yourself in their budding love!

Claiming Their Mate is a stand alone Shifter ménage romance. As Madison walks into Jared’s office, she’s expecting a job interview and is completely shocked by their passionate behavior! Running away and scared of her raging emotions, she’s surprised again when Jared comes to find her. Soon her whole world is rewritten when she finds out about werewolves, mates, and introducing Ethan into their relationship. But not everyone is excited about Madison and soon her life is in danger. Can Jared and Ethan save their mate?

This was a fast paced book full of instant connections, fighting for your love, and figuring out what’s most important in your life. I loved listening to Madison’s life as it continued to change and how she would adapt to those changes. Jared and Ethan were so dominant and possessive and I loved that they were willing to do so much to protect Madison. Together, they were passionate and explosive, including some of Madison’s punishment scenes. Mr. Masters did a great job with narrating the book, bringing each character to life and bringing the emotions of the book straight to my heart. I really enjoyed this book!

Rewriting the Rules is all about finding hope again and learning to trust and love again. Aurora is a well known romance author, but is a recluse and her writing is spiraling. Donovan, her new publisher, is determined to get her back, and is willing to go to any length to help, including unlocking the submissive side to Aurora again. But will Aurora trust Donovan enough to open up again, or will his plans backfire on them both?

This book completely fascinated me, and I absolutely loved how Donovan just rocks Aurora’s world! Aurora was sweet and sassy and playful, but also really hurt from her past relationship and had some trust issues she had to work through. Donovan was the Dom that Aurora needed, the strength she could lean on, and had the love that she was missing. They really fit each other well, and while at times I was surprised at how stern Donovan was as a Dom for Aurora, it was exactly what she needed. Mr. Calihan had a great voice, did a fantastic job narrating the book and bringing the characters to life for me. I really enjoyed listening to this book!

Mountain Man Daddy is a romance full of finding your inner strength, facing your demons, learning to trust, and finding true love. Avery is on the run after witnessing a murder, but as she takes a turn too fast, she crashes. Mike, a man hiding from his failures, finds Avery, nurses her back to health, and in the process, they start to find real emotions for each other. Keeping Avery safe is no small feat, though, especially when her past comes back to haunt them! Is Mike up to being the Daddy that Avery needs?

I absolutely love this book! May be one of my most favorite Daddy Dom books I’ve had the pleasure of reading and listening to. I love Avery and Mike! I love the supporting characters! I love the mischief that Avery gets up to, and I love how Mike protects her! There's so much intrigue and drama and sexiness that just adds to the perfect balance for this book! I have to say that Mr. Thom did an absolutely fantastic job narrating this book, with his deep voice, and it just absolutely brought Mike to life for me! Ms. Ongel had an innocence about her for Avery’s voice, and together, they were a dynamite team! I absolutely loved listening to this book and will gladly listen to this book again and again!

King of Diamonds is the first book in the Vegas Underground series. Sondra is working in a Las Vegas hotel as a maid and she’s fortunate enough to help out cleaning in the upper level. Unfortunately, Nico shows up, doesn’t recognize her, thinks she’s a spy, and they have a pretty memorable first meeting. Their connection is strong, though, and they slowly trust each other and need the other in their lives. But will Nico’s family and obligations force them apart?

Oh. My. Goodness!! This book is insanely dramatic, steamy, and full of this amazing connection between Sondra and Nico! I was instantly hooked, right from the very beginning, and I was so thankful I was on a long car ride that I could listen to it straight through because once I started, I did NOT want to stop! I had to know what was going to happen next, how they both would handle the situation, the twists and turns created by drama and his family. Plus, the steamy scenes were intense, dirty, and you might want a cold drink while you listen. Mr. Sands has this amazing voice that really brought all of the characters to life, Nico especially, and I loved the accent and I could just listen to him all night. This was a fabulous book and I am really excited to see where this series will lead to next!

Lord of Secrets is the fifth book in the Rogues to Richard series, but it can stand alone. Heath is a problem-solver for the London’s elite, and now he must unmask the creator of the offensive caricatures.

Ms. Hussey was absolutely amazing at bringing these characters and this world to life, with her voices, tone, and accent all adding to the magic of the book.
