Christopher Rush is not gay. But after a breakup with his longtime girlfriend, he finds himself crossing swords with his best friend Jeremy Pratt. Who's also not...gay. It was a one-time thing. It didn't mean anything. They like girls. At least, that's what these boys of summer tell themselves as they pretend it wasn't more than experimentation. With only four weeks left before they leave town for college, Christopher and Jeremy awkwardly navigate their way through a series of unfortunate (or very fortunate) events.

Crossing Swords was a funny and possibly realistic story about 2 hetero best friends who discover they have a thing for each other. There was a lot of jabbing at each other in denial of what was happening and over time I hoped they would stop the poking at each other but I guess that’s just how they were together. The narrator was good but the recording needs some work as the room or equipment it was recorded with didn’t seem to add to the narration and there were a lot of stops and starts where several words were repeated within a sentence. Cleaning up the narration (recording itself, not the narrator as he did a good job) would help improve the overall audiobook.

THIS BOOK! THIS BOOK IS EVERYTHING!!! Not only do I LOVE the reason on why it was made (jello #cockygate) but the story itself was perfect. Flawd perfect-for-each-other characters. And it was HOT. This book is in my hands down top 10 favorite books of all time. I love the fluffy idea of not so perfect love thy scares others but when you find the right person- that right match- it all becomes ok. That scary attraction becomes a perfect kind of love and these characters have it.

Strip Me is a fantastic (and hot) story about 2 heterosexual men exploring a love interest for the first time with each other. The narrators did a fantastic spot on job with these characters and I’m hoping for a sequel (although this story ends with a HEA or HDN) which I appreciate.

It began with his electric touch and a hurricane of frenzied passion that ravaged my body, my mind, my soul...my entire life. We both knew where the line was, yet we crossed it because it was the only way we could be close to one another. We couldn't keep away from each other, and one lust-filled encounter after another birthed a connection, which turned into so much more. Now, I'm head over heels for my best friend's father.

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!
