I'm that guy. Camilla Landry rustles against me, the silky fabric of her overpriced lingerie slipping along my bruised rib. The porcelain perfection of her skin is even more innocent against the colorful ink dotting my own. It's demure meets damaged, pampered meets punctured.

I love everything about the Landry series. All the characters are so well written. The dynamic between the siblings, the parents, the major male and female roles. It all intertwines so well. What really ties it all together in a big red bow are the voices of Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott. I love an interactive narrative.
This story between Cam and Dom - the good girl and the bad boy is so precious. I have only one negative remark. Camilla's character is so naive about why Dom didn't want her at his fighting match. I realize that there are actually some people who are raised very sheltered. However, Cam's character was a strong woman and she just didn't seem to be that clueless about most everything else in life. So it surprised me that she would act that way.
I'm looking forward to the next book in the series Sweet.

The first time the local basketball star smiled at Elin, she was a goner. It was just so damn easy to fall for the dark-haired hometown hero with his charming smile and strong, athletic build. Thousands of sleepy smiles, aimless drives down country roads, and squeaks of the backdoor after a swing shift later, reality hits. And it hits hard. Falling in love was definitely the easy part. Watching it break apart was impossible.

I became hooked on Adriana Locke's story telling when I first listened to her Landry Family series. Written In The Scars is another great book.
Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott are two of my favorite narrators. Their dual voices breathe life into the story helping to fuel my imagination.
This is really good romance with all the drama, twists and turns that Locke always provides. The relationship between Elin and Ty is realistic.
Between the two, Ty, is my favorite character. He is strong, level headed, loving and nurturing. Elin is a bit too emotional and needy for me. But I would rather have a character that angers me than one that is boring.
I feel this book is worth a listen and I look forward to the next one in this series.

I fell in love with Kyle's character in the first book. He is fun loving, witty, sexy and kind. Kenzie is his perfect match and was easily just as likable a character as Kyle.
I don't like the tv show Survivor and the fact that this story mainly takes place on a survival tv show was a major problem for me.
Also, I highly recommend that the first book Cake be listened to before this one, for the simple reason that if you don't I feel the read/listener would be lost with how the two stories tie together. Kyle's back story with his brother Jake feels like a disconnect in this book. I feel that if you haven't read the first book you will be somewhat lost within Kyle's story.
I love the narration. Andi and Zachery are wonderful as always, helping you fall in love with the characters and their story.
I'm looking forward to listening to the third book.

Have my baby. That was what my single-dad best friend, Seth, said to me while I was waitressing at the diner. His little girl wants a sibling. But Seth is a workaholic millionaire and doesn't have time to meet someone. Someone who won't screw him over, like his kid's mother. Only problem is this someone has secretly been in love with him since high school. I've been hiding it forever, not wanting to risk our friendship.

Let me start my review by stating I really like Wen and Kai as narrators. This is the main reason I made this purchase. The story started out interesting enough, but then plummeted right into head shaking disappointment.
The premise that Seth would want his best friend Allie to have his baby, but have nothing to do with the raising of their child was disturbing.
The virgin Allie would have been a more endearing character if she would have either remained the naive virgin in love with her best friend or if she would have been the bold aggressive partner.
Allie's character was so wishy-washy and up, down all over the place it was hard to keep up with her.
She's the type of person you just want to smack upside the head and tell her to get a clue.
I'll hang on to this audio and I may even purchase the next in series. I'm hoping things will improve with the next book.
Taryn Quinn is a good writer. I just feel this needed some tweaking.

Jackson "The Beast" Boudreaux is rich, gorgeous, and unbelievably rude to the staff at Chef Bianca Hardwick's New Orleans restaurant. Bianca would sooner douse herself in hot sauce than cook for Jackson again, but when he asks her to cater his fundraiser, Bianca can't refuse, knowing the cash will help pay her mother's medical bills. Then Jackson makes another outrageous request: Marry me. The unconventional offer includes an enormous sum - money Bianca desperately needs, even if it does come with a contract - and a stunning ring.

Let me start by saying I have enjoyed J.T. Geissinger's books up until this particular one. The story line is really good. From beginning to end it had a really nice flow.
I got hung up on the Creole accent of the female narrator. Even though I agree that in some instances an accent is necessary. Sometimes less is more. Diana Luke laid it on a bit thick and it took away from the likability of the character. Sebastian York's use of an accent was light, barely audible.
Geissinger use of quips/pharses; well butter my butt and call me a biscuit, for example; were used to ad nauseum by Bianca. At first they added a cuteness to the character. Brought out her sense of humor. As the story progressed it became overkill.
Jackson's mood swings indicated he needed to be on Zolaf.
Unfortunately this is one of Geissinger's books I will be returning.

This is one mistake Sienna Landry can't buy her way out of. As Walker Gibson looks at her, then at the damage to his precious truck (that she may or may not have accidentally inflicted), she knows she's in trouble. It's not the busted headlight and dented grill that's sunk her though. It's the downright sinful man in front of her that's the problem. The small-town mechanic is broody. Rough. Smells like engine grease and gasoline, and Sienna isn't sure why that's so sexy, but it is. It so is.

My favorite part of Adriana Locke's audio books is the narration. I love how the story is told as a conversation between the two male and female parts. Their voices are easy on the ear...most enjoyable. Adriana has a brilliant way of story telling. Her character development is wonderful. I am able to fall in love with all of the characters, which in turn, sets me up to want to hear all of their stories. Everything flows throughout and keeps you wanting more. I highly recommend all of her books.

As one of the league's toughest enforcers, Van Turner is ruthless on the ice. He plays hard because it's the only way to channel the rage boiling inside, and a reputation as an A-hole is better than everyone knowing the truth. Van has spent his entire life running from a secret that's kept him from getting involved in relationships-or accepting lucrative deals with East Coast teams. Then the Carolina Cold Fury makes him an offer he can't refuse...and Van meets a woman he can't resist.

Where to begin. Let me start by saying I love the Cold Fury series. Van's book, however, not so much. The heroin, Simone is an immature tramp. This character completely ruined this book for me.
Also, the French-Canadian accent was hard on the ears. Both narrators I think did the best the could with the accent, but both fell short. Normally I like to listen to Cris and Graham.
I am still listening to the book as I write this review. I try to listen all the way through before making a decision. This time I'm not so sure. I'll probably return it for another.

I spent 20 years waiting for Trent Hennington to open his eyes and see me. But it was all for nothing. He chose to keep himself guarded and let me walk away, proving that my time and efforts were wasted. I'm done being invisible. It's time to move on. A single dance sets my new reality into motion, and I welcome it. After all, Cooper Townsend is perfect. He's kind, sexy, and attentive - everything a girl could want.

I love reading/listening to stories that make me feel. My emotions were all over the place with Say I'm Yours. As always York and Arndt are brilliant narrators. They add so much feeling to each of the characters. They bring them to life.
My only negative part of this review would be how the conflict between the two main characters was drawn out to ad nauseam. There were times I just wanted to smack them both upside the head.

J. Daniels has added another great book to this series. The characters, especially CJ or hero, is a great guy. He's pretty much the all around man of the year. Riley the heroine can be a bit naive and for me that is an unattractive trait. I mean, there is being uninformed and then there is being a real dits.
The banter between Riley and CJ is fun and frisky. Daniels also includes the cast from the other books which keeps them all tied together.
Worth the purchase.

I love a book where I laugh out loud....a lot. I love a book where I cry and feel my heart break. Andi Arndt and Joe Arden brought this story to life. All the highs and lows that tied every moment together. Casey and Jake's story is so believable. Their characters are relatable and I just couldn't help but falling in love.
