For the past year, Dru has put everything she has into building a catering business with her sisters. She’s so used to working until all hours of the night with them by her side that when they both find love and move out, Dru decides to focus on something that has always weighed on her...finding the father who’d abandoned them.

Now that both of her sisters has found their HEA, Millie wants that more than anything. Between running their catering company and also wanting to find out more about her father, where will she get the time. How about the hot private investigator Mick who also happen to be looking into her fathers disappearance...
But Mick has a no dating the client policy, so maybe its up to her to prove to him that they can be good together.

I loved this series, I read the first book in a day and kind of skipped the next one(but will be going back for it) and I really enjoyed Millie and Mick's story. Lots of drama and love to keep you entertained. And I have to say the narrators voice on this one was spot on. Definitely a good audio

Wes: Life on the road as a pro-ballplayer isn't without it's drawbacks. And now, without a team to play for, I find myself heading home. Maybe it's a good thing. I can focus on my daughter, Izzy, and my life. I need to get things straightened out, including that hole that I never filled after Izzy's mom left. But, is there anything that could keep me in town if another team came calling?

I love books about single parents. It's definitely one of my favourite genres
And this one was no different. Wes was a pro ball player, but now he was let go by his team. Bad but maybe now he can spend more time with his daughter.
Kristin is trying to build a new life and she was well on her way till Wes Martin came back to town. The more time she spends with him the more she can't help falling for this single dad. But then things change for Wes. So is she just another notch on his bed post or did this mean as much to him as it did to her
Loved this story and defintely loved the narrators and I am so buying Burnt as well❤️ This one had lots of sweetness, drama and single dad hotness and you definitely could hear it in the way it was narrated ❤️

If you’re a guy like me, and you find yourself having banged your sexy new boss - the school principal - in the back of your Jeep one drunken night, here’s a few takeaways based on my experience. Lesson One: Always get her full name. Lesson Two: Consider asking what she does for a living. Lesson Three: Find out why she’s moved to town. Get details. Details are crucial....

Sola Morte, former cat burglar and safecracker, has given up her old life on the wrong side of the law. On the run from a drug lord’s family, she is lying low far from Caldwell. Her heart, though, is back up North, with the only man who has ever gotten through her defenses: Assail, who never meant to fall in love - certainly not with a human woman. But they have no future, and not just because she doesn’t know he is a vampire, but because he is not about to stop dealing arms to the Black Dagger Brotherhood. Fate, however, has other plans for them.

I really enjoyed this story, sometimes I was a bit confused there was so many people I had to keep up with, but other than that I liked that Vishous and Jane got a bit more depth to their story.

It took me a while to get use to Jim Frangione's voice, but now I love it. I love that he changes his voice and gets into each character.
Can't wait to listen to the next one

I'd been known to have my share of beautiful women. Usually, I met them in a bar, through a mutual acquaintance, or even when photographing them. Imagine my surprise when a gorgeous blonde drove her car into mine on the way to a party. No more than a minute after our run-in, a string of colorful words flew from her mouth in rapid fire. Inexplicably, the angrier she became, the harder I got. All sorts of scenarios played in my head of how I could get her to shut up. When I learned she was a school teacher, that worsened my disposition.

So this is my first book by these authors and I have to say I really enjoyed it. I loved that Dante didn't just look at the outer appearance but he also loved Cassie for the person she was.
An accidental meeting turned into something so much more. This book was funny, sweet, sassy and so much hot chemistry it was off the charts.
I am definitely going back to the previous books
Loved Tor Thom and Charley Ongel's narration. Becoming my favourite duo! :-)

I'm the first-born son of the mafia king. The favorite. Destined to rule, I'm a dangerous man, a ruthless one. But in my world, you have to be. Then Natalie stumbles into my life. Wrong place. Wrong time. Twice, fate put her in my path. Twice, fate placed the innocent lamb at the mercy of the monster. I gave her a chance to walk away. Told her it would be better for her if she did. But she didn't listen. And now it's too late. Because I'm not good. I never wanted to be. And I won't let her go anymore. See, I'm not the hero. When I touch her, it's with dirty hands.

In the beginning I found it hard to connect with these characters, so don't know if its because I didn't read the previous book, but in the end I was very much hooked.

Sergio is a dark alpha male, that I'm sure will you running a mile away, but yet you can't help getting attached. He is sexy, dark, alpha, and loyal to a fault.
Natalie is just an average young lady, living her life, day to day when one night changes everything for her. From then her life is never the same again.

Loved the drama, the suspense, heartbreak and angst and so much more. And the narrators did it for me. Loved it!

I loved this audio book. I took me a while to listen to it, but its probably cause I wanted to savour the experience. This audiobook is three books in one, and I think my favourite was Sid and Madi's story. Sid was not in a good place after Iraq but the brother's gave him a place that felt like home. And when he met the shy Madi he knew that she was the one who would give him peace.
Jeremiah and Dylan's story wasn't my thing, I'm not much of a M/M romance person but I enjoyed their story. I mean the enforcer and the nurse, nice, and the chemistry and steaminess was off the charts.
Chase and Tara I also enjoyed. Chase is undercover trying to get info on the club to take them down, but he didn't think he would get to care about the brothers so much. So lines start getting a bit blurry and developing feelings for your 'fake' girlfriend, don't think that's going to be a good outcome.

The narrators loved it. I savoured Gideon Welles's voice while I was listening to it. HOT HOT! Definitely checking out more of his audio books!

This book annoyed me so much. Lasso first of all, I felt that he had no back bone. He couldn't stand up for himself with his club. And FYI the club sucks, their brother asked them for help as his baby mamma was in trouble and they denied it and wouldn't help at all. Big Time Sucks!
And Rochelle oh my word, she couldn't make up her mind what she wanted and I didn't like the fact that she kept threatening Lasso with the fact that she will leave. Make up your mind stay or leave.

I think the only thing I actually liked was the narrators... Sorry!

As an ex-Navy SEAL there are a few guarantees in life. Avoiding relationships is one of them. Dealing with PTSD is another. So when I come across the Reckless Bastards MC, it’s perfect for a man like me. Last thing I expect is to encounter Jana Carter at a painting class. Don’t ask why I was there. I can hardly keep my eyes off of her. She’s a shy, sultry vixen, and she grabs ahold of me so hard, I can’t let go.

I Enjoy stories about single parents. And this one I really loved. Lincoln was sweet and caring and all he wanted was a family of his own and he found it with Vera and her boys.
Vera I don't know how I felt about her. I felt sorry for her for what she went through and all her issues with her ex, but then I didn't like how she used Lincoln.

The narrators was spot on for me. And definitely looking at more with these two
