I usually love this author, not for this series. The narration is also for the birds. I will try and at least finish it, although it will be hard.

Tensions are building in Diablo Lake as the two main rival Packs vie for control, and the town is divided along lines of Pack loyalty. Aimee Benton and Mac Pembry are on opposite sides, and he seems to find excuses to spar with her daily. He's infuriating - not to mention charming, gorgeous, and oh, so lickable.

This is a good addition to the series. I thought this book was better than the first one. This book was funny and sexy and was able to keep me captured until the very end. I really love the main characters, both of them. The story was excellent and the narration was great! Well worth the credit!!!

Sasha Stone knows her place - first-chair clarinet, top of her class, and at the side of her Oxford-wearing boyfriend. She's worked her entire life to ensure her path to Oberlin Conservatory as a star musician is perfectly paved. But suddenly there's a fork in the road in the shape of Isaac Harver. Her body shifts toward him when he walks by, and her skin misses his touch even though she's never known it. Why does he act like he knows her so well - too well - when she doesn't know him at all?

The vampire elite must fight, fist and fang, for a much sought after place in the program and a chance to date human women. There are a multitude of beautiful human females in attendance. They have been handpicked to ensure that they are irresistible to vampire males. Why is it then that York wants the one female he can't have?

This is a cute book. I listened to this book while at work, it was entertaining and kept me interested. It does lack BIG drama so if that is what you're looking for this is not the book for you. If you're looking for something light and sexy give it a try. every one that walked past my office asked why I had a big goofy smile on my face while staring at the computer screen!!!

I really like this book. It was pretty refreshing to have a heroine that was not whiny, she was able to share her strength with the hero without being " I am woman hear me roar" and he was able to let her have strength knowing it didn't make him weak. The story is entertaining kept me interested. The narration was good too--- All in all worth the credit--- check it out.

It's werewolf mating season. All the males are in heat and the driving, sexual lust of their beasts is almost uncontrollable. Mika is human, in an alley, surrounded by four horny werewolves. She knows she's in deep shit. A tall, handsome werewolf rescues her then demands payment. Hot, sweaty, intimate payment. Grady is a half breed whose human mother abandoned him to his werewolf father, so he knows human women just aren't safe to fall in love with. The wolf within him wants Mika as his mate, but Grady will not give in. Never. Ever.

I liked it overall, but the heroine in this one towards the end is very whiny and jumps to conclusions and never apologizes for the trouble she causes. I like a heroine to accept her part in the drama. The book just became annoying to me...... of your looking for an annoying heroine, weird word, and pointless sex scenes this is the book for you!!!

Willa Knight: Dweller? Bad-ass? Notorious pet to five magical beings? In Blesswood, there are rules, and someone is trying to teach her how to follow them. The only problem is Willa. Which shouldn’t be anything new, since she has been a problem since birth — something her pseudo-sister Emmy would agree on. So it definitely shouldn’t be new, but it is. Because things are starting to happen that have never happened before. Things are starting to get chaotic.

This series is a guilty pleasure for me. I actually don't know why I love it so much. The heroine is pretty much an idiot and she is surrounded by hot, sexy guys that carry her around like a rag doll all day.The narration is good and honestly there are times I've actually laughed out loud while listening to both books. I can't wait for the other books to come out. It's not for everyone, but I'm addicted!

In Minatsol, being a dweller means that you are literally no better than dirt. In fact, dirt might actually be more useful than Willa. Her life will be one of servitude to the sols, the magic-blessed beings who could one day be chosen to become gods. At least her outer village is far removed from the cities of the sols, and she won't ever be forced to present herself to them... Until one small mistake changes everything, and Willa is awarded a position to serve at Blesswood, the top sol academy in the world - a position that she definitely did not earn.
