Ten years after Simone Payton broke his heart, all Roscoe Winston wants is a doughnut. He'd also like to forget her entirely, but that's never going to happen. Roscoe Winston remembers everything - every look, every word, every single unrequited second - and the last thing he needs is another memory of Simone. Unfortunately, after one chance encounter, Simone keeps popping up everywhere he happens to be....

Penny did it again! Roscoe is a dreamy vet with an amazing memory that sometimes ends up hurting him rather than helping him. Simone is a wickedly smart FBI agent trying to figure out why Roscoe ghosted her in high school all while trying to bring in Roscoe’s father. Add in a little bit of Winston family chaos and you’ve got an incredible story! I loved the narration as well.

This review is given in return for a free download and review of the audiobook.

As for harem stories go, those story has a delightful unique twist to how the heroine gets her harem of men. She meets 4 men in various ways and explores the development of 3 major relationships over the first book and you meet the 4th potential suitor about half way through the book. I enjoyed the slow built up to Mia meeting her men under different circumstances and was wondering how it would all come together for the harem but found it very modern and sweet. Not realizing this was a first in the series, I was a bit disappointed the whole harem never really came together by the end of book one. This first book is primarily about Mia meeting the men rather than coming together as a team or group. That being said it was a neat story and I’d like to hear the rest! I liked the narration and plan to get the other two books in the series.

This was a quick but hot erotic romance about an older college professor (mid 30’s) and her student. There is some submissive undertones (spanking). I love the age gaps in Paris’s stories. If you are looking for an erotic teacher/student story, this one is it for you! It’ll get you hooked!

Axel: When I left home to follow my dream of becoming a boxer, I was too young and stupid to know what I was leaving behind. These days I fill my world with the blood and sweat of a violent profession and the meaningless sexual conquests that come with it. A futile attempt to erase from my mind the only woman I’ve ever loved. Since I can’t let her go, I have no choice but to win her back. Olive: I’ve loved Axel my entire life. The boy next door. We didn’t talk about the attraction building between us, until one fateful night those sparks finally burst into flames.

This story about a boxer and nerdy girl start in the present time and goes back in time to explore the building of their relationship together. I’m not a huge fan of the heroine as she made some immature maneuvers in the beginning but I guess that is what you get with teens. I’d say with the limited sexy scenes and overall story plot that it’s more of a young adult romance. The author did a great job with character building. Overall the story and narration was good and I’d listen to other stories from her.

I am so damn done with being the chubby doormat for my soon-to-be ex-fiancé. I changed myself for every man in my life. Except Gray--my bodyguard. Too bad he's totally not interested in getting his kink on with me. No, he's made it perfectly clear he's only here to protect me. We'll just see about that. Protect me from this, buddy. I'm going out on the town to find myself a good old-fashioned ménage.

I originally read Rebound and the other corresponding books in the Curvy Seduction series on my kindle and thought it was a great reverse harem series with a focus on two major characters (the heroine and a Dom hero who helps the heroine explore her sexuality with others in the home). It’s a unique twist and I love that the heroine is curvy and confident all while engaging in self-exploration. The narration really brought the characters to life and gave me a different perspective on the characters (with accents and such) that I hadn’t gotten when strictly reading it. Can’t wait for the second in the series to be released!

I give “College Girls and Older Women” 5 smoking hot stars! This was the first time listening to Paris Rivera’s stories and I found myself blown away by the sensual romance and steamy scenes. The narration makes the story even that much better. I love the strong women and the exploration of their sexuality. I will definitely be listening to more of Paris’ stories!

He's dark and mysterious. Quiet and lethal. An Irish mobster. Pure sin wrapped up in a beautiful package. But there's also something off about him. He doesn't feel anything. He shows no emotions. Sometimes, I question his humanity. He hasn't spoken to me in two years. Not a single word. But we share a secret, he and I. And if it ever comes out, I have no doubt in my mind.... He won't have a problem killing me, too.

You probably won't like my story. Heck, I'm not sure if I even like it myself. Between getting burned at the stake and being drowned, almost twice, it's quite a lot to swallow. I'm not sure where it all went wrong. Everything was going fine my freshman year of college as a history major. I had a full-time job as a paramedic and any girl I wanted was mine. When tragedy struck our family, I found myself in France with my sister, Jules. And she just had to touch that mirror. She had to get us transported to the middle ages. 1155 A.D., to be exact. What. The. Hell.

I was wondering where the story was going as it is short (a little over 3 hours) until I realized this is just volume 1. Be prepared for a cliffhanger. :) Volume 1 is primarily focused on character building so you learn a lot about Gill in the modern day and his sister. In he last hour of the book you get to finally hear about the time travel back to 1154. The story left with a good cliffhanger and has me wanting to get volume two! Great narration and realistic characters.

This is a super cute story about a curvaceous lady who is placed in a fake-fiancé situation by a hunky guy. The story was detailed and I got a good sense of what he characters were thinking and feeling. There was a lot of miscommunication it misunderstanding between the two main characters which felt a little drawn out but made for lots of *feels.* I did hope for an epilogue to see into the future a bit but hope to see these characters in a backstory of the next book in the series.

Great narration, however, the characters did seem to go from less country twang to more twang in the middle of the story to less towards the end. Other than that it was good.
