Stella Grant likes to be in control - even though her totally out-of-control lungs have sent her in and out of the hospital most of her life. At this point, what Stella needs to control most is keeping herself away from anyone or anything that might pass along an infection and jeopardize the possibility of a lung transplant. Six feet apart. No exceptions. The only thing Will Newman wants to be in control of is getting out of this hospital. He couldn’t care less about his treatments or a fancy new clinical drug trial. Will’s exactly what Stella needs to stay away from.

This book was great. As someone who has a cousin with Cystic Fibrosis, I connected to this story alot. I loved the characters Stella and Will. I loved Poe as well. This story follows Stella and Will in the hospital. Stella missing out on a trip due to her illness. This story is heartwarming but tragic at the same time. I can't imagine what it would be like to fall in love with someone fighting the same illness especially this one. Knowing that you can't touch or be right next to each other. Always having to be 5 feet apart.

Maggie's mind is reeling when she discovers the guy she became tangled up with at Marv's Bait & Tackle isn't a stranger like she thought. The big snag: Sam and Maggie's chemistry is hot enough to melt ice, which makes keeping their secret far more difficult than either expected. Especially when one of them decides they want this arrangement to be more than just a catch and release.

The narration was great, Amy Daws knows how to pick narrators that will pull you in from the get go. They make the story!

What a fun, loving, sexy story. I am not a fan of fishing but I loved the ice fishing aspect of this book. The characters were great and I wanted to hang out with them in real life. One of the secondary characters who was the ex boyfriend of the main female character I wanted to smack him up side the head. A little over dramatic or to be honest he was a lot dramatic. I am glad he was actually only a small part besides that she talked about him often. A great story and I would love to get more from the Wait with Me series.

Five-year-old Sloane McBride couldn’t sleep that night. Her parents were arguing again, their harsh words heating the cool autumn air. Then there was that other sound - the ominous thump before all went quiet. In the morning, her mother was gone. The official story was that she left. Her loving, devoted mother! That hadn’t sat any better at the time than it did when Sloane moved out at 18, anxious to leave her Texas hometown in search of anywhere else. But not even a fresh start working as a model in New York could keep the nightmares at bay. Or her fears that her father is deadly.

I loved this story. Brenda Novak sure knows how to pull her readers in from the get go. This is a romantic suspense novel with mystery that will keep you guessing. You will think you got it figured out then there is a twist that leaves you thinking damn I really thought I had it. This is one of my favorite stories by this authors and I have enjoyed everything I have read by her.

The narration was good. I personally prefer duo narration but this one was good. So either one click the ebook, the audio or grab the physical copy and be swept away into the world the author has created. I was not ready for this story to end!

But his busted knee doesn't stop him from running his well-practiced game on Indie Porter - his redheaded spitfire of a doctor. She's not his type, not even close. But she could be the perfect distraction from the soul-crushing damage this injury could cost him.

I loved this book! Cam and Indie are amazing characters. I loved all the puns that were used through out the story and of course the Penis list is freaking awesome! Cam is a football player (Soccer to those of us in the United States) Indie is a Doctor. I love that Cam reads that alone makes him super hot to me. The chemistry between these two is off the charts This story has a bit of everything its super funny, its hot, there is a little drama mixed in. I look forward to reading the rest of the Harris Brothers.

I loved this story. I loved the suspense, The narrator did a great job. I wanted to know what happened next so it was hard to stop it for anything. I love how the author made it to where how someone saw one character wasn't who or how that character really was. I loved Sadie and Dawson. They area great characters. I loved Sadies son as well he was a cutie! If you love a great romance with suspense you will love this one!

When romance novelist Kate Smith suddenly gets writer's block as she's beginning the final installment of her international best-selling erotic Bed 'n Breakfast series, she'll do pretty much anything to get her groove back. Like sneak into a Tire Depot waiting room because her words flow there just like complimentary coffee - smooth, sweet, and scorchingly hot. She manages to fly under the radar until the rugged and charming mechanic, Miles Hudson, notices the quirky redhead slinking in and out of the employees-only entrance. But she's way too intriguing to blow the whistle on.

Great narrators! I loved this book. This one is my favorite so far. I loved Kate aka Mercedes and Miles. This book has it all going for it, humor, sexy time, sweetness and a little bit of Angst. The characters will work their way into your heart, and leave you wanting more when you finish their story. I loved the chemistry, the witty banter and of course their hot and steamy moments. I loved that both the main characters had real flaws and were both broken in some way. I think Miles was the most broken and I truly loved him.

I hope we get stories for the secondary characters as well.

I love that Amy wrote this story after telling her readers about finding her mojo at a local tire center

Max knew the drugs and alcohol would eventually kill him, and sooner rather than later. So he enlisted in the Marines. His timing is unfortunate, as the events of 9/11 find him at the beginning of his military service, and he is sent to Iraq. The journey he embarks on is unlike anything he could ever imagine. From Washington, Boston and New Orleans to the ancient sands of Iraq, Max and his entourage endure the toils of war with courage, romance, patriotism, heartache and passion. Only one weapon gets them through the anguish they come face to face with: Music.

I was never supposed to be a rock star. I had my life all planned out for me. Play football in college. Go to the NFL. Marry my high school sweetheart and live happily ever after. I broke both our hearts that day when I told her I was leaving. I was young. I made the right decision for me, but the wrong decision for us. I've poured my soul into my music, but I've never forgotten her. Her smell, her smile. And now I'm going back. After ten years. I hope I can explain that after all this time. I still want her to be my forever girl.

This is a story about a Young Adult Rockstar romance about heartbreak, forgiveness, and second chances.

I I think the narrators did a good job with the story. I feel like Josie had to many mood swings, she couldn't make up her mind. I wanted more from her. She came off a little flaky to me.

Liam was better, once he found out that Josie was keeping something major from him, he reacted and did the best he could. I feel that he was the stronger of the two characters.

Noah is my favorite in the book, He seemed the most grown up out of the characters in the book and sadly he was the kid.

I hated Nick, he was an ass and just pissed me off with his attitude.

Noah Wilson isn't exactly "life partner" material, and he sure as hell isn't "father material." He's my older brother's best friend, and has been off limits, sworn off, locked in the highest tower and out of reach since we met over 10 years ago. With his devilish good looks, tattoos, motorcycle, and trail of broken hearts and tears, I've had good reason to stay away from the bad boy my mother warned me about. Until one night. One stupid, regrettable night that changed both of our lives forever.
