Years ago, in the town of Saxon Falls, young Kelsey Willard disappeared and was presumed dead. The tragedy left her family with a fractured life - a mother out to numb the pain, a father losing a battle with his own private demons, and a sister desperate for closure. But now another teenage girl has gone missing. It's ripping open old wounds for the Willards, dragging them back into a painful past, and leaving them unprepared for where it will take them next.

I don’t normally read these types of story lines, romance is always my first choice, but this book had a very good plot to it and I am glad I did. This has inspired me to check out more mystery stories. I recommend this book to you if you are looking to read something different.

I love this love story!!! It was the perfect romance story that included the best, most explicit love scenes. I would highly recommend this story if you love to read uplifting, toe curling love stories. I don't normally write reviews but when a book touches me as this one did, I thought it was only fair to share my experience and thoughts to others. Enjoy the book!

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?

This was my first book by M.E. Carter and I really enjoyed this book. I ended up losing a whole night of sleep over it because I could not stop listening to it. This book was great in every way...great narrators too!! I would recommend this book to those who love a good, sweet love story.
I normally like my books with a little more smexy love scenes, but this story kept everything on such a positive, uplifting note, that made up for not having any of that in it. I was so glad it wasn't another love story about the guy getting caught cheating on his girlfriend, it was so much more and different than most of the other books I have read and I have over 1,000 books now so that means a lot. I look forward to reading more books by M.E. Carter.

He wants things from me. Dirty things, nasty things, forbidden things. And I have to give in. His attention is completely inappropriate, but I can't say no. The way he looks at me...the way he watches me through my bedroom window...the way he drags me deeper and deeper into his completely forbidden fantasy just...turns me on. He knows it turns me on. He holds all the power. He holds all the cards. He holds my entire future in his hands. I have to give in. Because Mr. Alesci is my teacher. And I need everything he's offering.

This was a good book, regardless of the fact that a teacher would do such inappropriate things to their students. It difficult to believe that it's based on a true story which really got me thinking more about the plot of the story. This was a different type of Romance love story than what I normally purchase so I listened to it with an open-mind and glad I did. I liked the story and I would recommend it to others too.It was a good read and intriguing story.
This was the 3rd book I have purchased from JA Huss and so far I have not been disappointed by the different type of stories written by this author. I plan on purchasing more.

My name is Danielle DeChenne, and for 18 years I took every punch "destiny" threw at me. Now, I'm no longer a naive girl. Traumatic abuse will do that to you. I was forced to grow up too fast, and the one person I depended on - that gorgeous Marine, Zane - turned his back on me. So now I say screw the lemonade and just give me a bottle of Jack Daniel's, because I don't believe in destiny anymore.

I have to agree with the other people that submitted their reviews on this book, It was a great Love-story!! I started listening to it right before I went to bed and I ended up staying up until 3 am I could not put it down!!! I guess I have learned my lesson to never start a book before bedtime again...now I am having a difficult time staying awake at work today.

This was a great story from the beginning to the end and it was definitely worth the credit!!! This was my first book I have purchased from the author Shelly Morgan. I hope she continues to put more of her books on audible because I love her writing style!!

I am afraid to give anymore information on the book because I don't want to give out any spoilers on the book (if I haven't already done so), but I highly recommend this book to all.

Jude Sinclair here, hockey player for the Bellevue Bullies and lover of all ladies. Hockey's in my blood, and not to sound full of myself, but I'm good at it...really good. The draft is within my reach - it's mine to take - but that's not the only reason people know my name. They know me because of my way with women. They know the score, and I aim to please. I just tend to stay away from repeat performances. In other words I don't do relationships beyond my family and friends.

I haven't written a review in awhile and this book was so good I felt the urge to write about it. I love the story between Jude and Claire, I was so glad to read about the playboy that Jude was, didn't cause him to cheat on Claire, especially with all the girls constantly swooning over him. It was so awesome to see how much they loved each other right from the very start. I just knew it was going to catch up with Claire,the secret she held would eventually come out before you know it, but Jude didn't have to be so mean and headstrong about it. I don't want to say anymore because I don't want to give the best part of the story up, but this book is a must read if you love reading about hockey stars and true love.

I have read all of the Green Mountain Series books so far and they are great love stories that keep you wanting more. I have given every book in this series a 5 STAR rating. I can't wait until the next book comes out. Reading Love Stories like this makes you wish there really was a true place like The Green Mountain it sucks you in so much. All of the books I have read so far of Marie Force are Fantastic!!!

I also love the narrator, Christina Traister for the books too. Christina has a great laugh that she incorporates in the story too, I find myself laughing like that at times it's so contagious. The way Christina lowers her voice when Gavin and Ella are making love, you feel like you are right there with them. I can't wait to listen to another book read by Christina. That's what makes a great story even better and awesome!!

The Green Mountain Series are definitely worth the credit and I would highly recommend it if you love great romance stories and really great love scenes between two lovers.

NHL player Tim Hollander lost his temper one time and threw a water bottle at an abusive fan. After "Bottlegate", he's traded to the San Diego Barracudas, where he'll need to keep the bad publicity to a minimum while proving he can still compete with the younger guys on the ice. Erin Collier is a pediatric nurse who's never seen a hockey game but gets in line for Tim's autograph at a PR event in hopes of impressing the doctor she has a crush on. When an obnoxious fan gets pushy toward Erin, Tim rushes to defend the pretty stranger.

This was my first book written by Kate Willoughby and I thought this was a really great love story between a NHL hockey player and a nurse. I loved the way the story pulled you into their lives and how they learned to adapt to their different life styles. Erin (the nurse) did not know anything about the game of hockey and it was really fun to see how much she got into the games when she started attending them and watching her man Tim play the sport. I would've liked to hear Erin's reaction to Tim's interaction to his Ex-wife Waverly when they happen to meet at the cemetery. Without giving away too much of the story I am dying to see if Erin and Tim ever have a family of their own. I hope the next book in the story fills us in on that. I can't wait to read the next book in The Zone Series, Across the Line next.

Mia Galliano is an aspiring filmmaker. Ethan Vance has just played his last game as a collegiate soccer star. They're sharp, hungry for success, and they share a secret. Last night, Ethan and Mia met at a bar, and, well, one thing led to another, which led to them waking up the next morning together. Things turned awkward in a hurry when they found themselves sharing a post-hookup taxi to the same place: Boomerang headquarters.

This was my first book by Noelle August and I thought it was a very funny, and cute love story between Ethan and Mia. They were the perfect couple with some competition thrown into the story which made it even more interesting to listen to. I kept laughing at the dates they had to endure for their internship that my husband kept looking at me like I was crazy. I would recommend this if you like to read fun-loving romance stories. it's worth the credit. Only suggestion I have is there could've been a lot more smexy love scenes between Ethan & Mia. You knew the chemistry was there it just wasn't played up more in terms of the sex between the two. I will be getting the next book in the Boomerang series and can't wait to see what is next.
