Overall I loved the young women's personalities and spunk but I definitely didn't like the egos on the men and their overbearing personalities. It annoyed me so much that I hated whenever they entered in the scene. Torak's constant grabbing on her and controlling attitude sounded like he was one step away from abusive. I mean he even said that if River had not given in to mating with him then he would've just taken her. I mean the women really had no choice whatsoever because the brothers never would've let the "sisters" go. I like S.E. Smith's other series like the Alliance one. I don't think I am going to listen to anymore of this one though. Disappointing.

This book was a true blessing and I will definitely be telling people to listen to this book. I truly sympathized with how Jane lived her life. She had to be such a strong woman at such a young age. I have never had to live like how she did but how her life was described I actually felt like she was a friend of mine. I cried at times and cheered at other times. I felt myself getting mad when she was upset and getting frustrated with her when she was being stubborn. I swear I feel like I went on an emotional rollercoaster but in the end I came out feeling like I had a new goal. I really feel like through God relationships can never fail as long as you put him first. I find that I have even more faith that God will send me someone special and I hope to have a love like how Jane and Aiden had. I know I just have to be patient but I hope that I will know him when I see him. Thank you so much Michelle Onorati for writing this beautiful book and Natalie Naudus for narrating this book so well. 5 stars all around. Excellent. I actually stumbled across this book but I am glad I did. If you haven't listened to this book you should definitely do so. I promise it doesn't feel like 12 hours and it could even been longer and I still would have been happy.

this story started off confusing me for a minute until I realized that Lily just kept coming back. I have never thought about listening to a story like this before but I was amazingly surprised. This story is truly sweet, hot, loving, and thrilling all in one. there were times when I was blushing and times when I was laughing. I loved her swear jar. "Caleb that will be $.50 in the swear jar." This was a different kind of western but truly wonderfully written and the narration was great as well. I usually don't like female narrators but Samantha Cook was perfect! great listen and you definitely won't be disappointed.

Nathan wasn't sure why people were so obsessed with dating and sex. Sure it probably felt good, but he just couldn't figure out what all the fuss was about. It might have helped if he knew what he was looking for. But with so many labels and options, he just wasn't sure. It seemed so easy to everyone else, but to him, it felt like something was missing. Gabriel thought Nathan was absolutely perfect. Sweet, funny, sexy, and completely confused about what he desired; but absolutely perfect.

I really didn't know what to think of Nathan except a few words: sweet, inquisitive, and ANNOYINGLY TALKATIVE!!! I mean geez! He has such an ADHD problem that I wanted to scream! I wish we could've gotten out of his head more. It was just so exhausting to listen to. I just kept screaming "You are cute but please shut up!"

Sorry I just had to get that out my system. So Nathan completely embraces the lifestyle and jumps in head first. The personality of Nathan is little naive and very passionate but things that he wants. He is the very human version of a real puppy, I mean if the author would've said he was a real puppy then I definitely would have believed it.

Gabriel is perfect for Nathan. He is the perfect roommate, friend and Dom. I love when Gabriel would say, "One word, Oatmeal." lol. Gabriel is also be very protective and caring of Nathan. Some might misunderstand their relationship but it is just him trying to care for Nathan who wants and needs the extra attention.

I still have a few hours to go but I definitely need a drink to finish this book. Nathan is just 5 po exhausting.

Talon Valdez knew when he transformed into an enhanced human, his life and his dreams were finished. Reviled, mistrusted, and often locked away, the enhanced were viewed as monsters, despised by the public, and never trusted to serve in the military or any law enforcement agency. Years later he gets a chance to set up a task force of enhanced to serve in the FBI, but with one proviso: each enhanced must partner with a regular human.

When I started listening to it I thought this book was going to be corny but man was I wrong. this book has action and romance and a little suspense. Finn was a main character who I felt was the underdog and constantly had to prove himself to his team but in the end lovable fan couldn't help but be loved by his teammates. The book shows you Finn's up and down moments and I swear that boy could not stay out of trouble to save his life. Victoria had me so many emotional turns, but I still wish there was a part 2 to listen to. If you have read or listened to the Thirds series then you know how similar the stories are, however it still doesn't take away from this one. I will definitely be listening to more of her books and hopefully more books of hers become audiobooks due to my busy schedule.

I absolutely love this story and the narrator made it even better. if you love a story that has mystery, real life problems, and dilfs in it then this is the story for you. I thought that these men were the sweetest men and I would have loved to be able to know them personally. There were moments in this story where I just laughed out loud and then there were moments where I cheered them on. Overall, this is a must buy. I will not say what happens but you definitely won't be disappointed.

loved the story and I liked the author but I did feel that it could have ended a lot sooner. There was so much drama when they tried to wrap everything up that I was completely confused and felt like I needed a pencil and paper because of all the characters that were involved. I would definitely call this a soap opera mixed with a little bit of everything. There was suspense, crime solving, and some romance on the side. Overall it was a great but like I said but I couldn't do it all in one sitting. You definitely have to take a break from the book to try to get your mind back focused on it.

My 35th birthday was a bust as usual. Drunk girls in my bathtub, messy beds and painful hangovers. I'm done. Meeting Adrianna was the best blind date I'd ever been on. God she was hot and inspiring and special. Something I didn't know what I needed until I had her. But then she slipped away. I'll be damned if I don't show her how much she needs me too.

I want to see the story is sweet and romantic to a certain extent. I think my biggest problem was the fact that they started the day off with him being such a hoe. I didn't like the fact that one minute he's I got a woman after woman after woman and then the next minute if he's so ready to commit to one woman. I just found that to be a little too quick of a change and disgusting. I mean come on he had just had a woman in his bed and he could remember doing the down and dirty with her but in the same breath you want a committed relationship with someone. That's a little too quick of a switch. I don't know, after that the I kind of wanted her to find out just how down and dirty he really was. But I guess in the end you need redeemed himself and I don't want to say too much because then I'll give it away. All in all I didn't have a problem with the story, he was sweet and they made a really cute couple. I believe the female main character did have some Hang-Ups with her past and she needs to work through it. Rich people really do have it way too easy.

I've been betrayed by someone I trusted. Because of him, I was captured by my loathed enemy: the vampires. Right now the sun is still high in the sky, but I know when it sets, I'm as good as dead. They can't wait to get their fangs into me. I guess some would say I have it coming. I did raise a lot of hell with my Resistance crew, and I was planning on raising a hell of a lot more at dawn before I was sold out by Jonah. The vampires, werewolves, and dragons have been trying to track me down for months, and I'd always been two steps ahead of them.

I would have to say that I was a little hesitant on writing this review. I have to say that in so many of the parts I was rendered speechless. I was definitely warned about the crude actions that were going to be involved. At first I was rooting for Noel but when he started slowly going to the dark side with the vampires I was very disappointed in him. Of course I quickly dashed that idea when I wanted to scream with him. I can't say that I blamed him. After all the torture that guy went through I probably would have been begging to go to the dark side too. I'm not even a man and it made my bits shrivel up. I mean come on cock ring that was like a cross. I'm still trying to picture that. I would have to say though that Nicholas Bella has a very imaginative mind if not a bit twisted. If you are of the faint of heart And you are easily grossed out And possibly a little too INNOCENT("Virgins I'm talking to you! LOL") then this is definitely not for you. But if you are not afraid to dip your foot into a little of the Darkness Pool or just dive right in then yeah you'll fit right into this book. Nicely written and very descriptive.

Will I be reading the next one in this series? My thoughts are still pondering the idea. I think my stomach needs to settle and my ears need a break. Sorry but I just heard all this in one sitting and it was a little much.
