Some universal truths refuse to be ignored. Peanut butter and jelly are a match made in heaven. Spaghetti and meatballs are best friends forever. And guys like Tyler Knight don't go for girls like Cam Emerson. She knew from the second she met him that he didn't belong on her bookshelf, the six-foot-six ex-tight end with a face so all-American, it could have sold apple pie.

This book is falling way short. I'm only 2.5 hours in and I am leaning towards abandoning and returning this one for the sole reason I can't stand the heroine Cam. She comes off as a judgmental ass and she is conceded in her abilities to "matchmake" which is really her just meddling where she shouldn't. Plus she is manipulative when someone she tries to match likes someone else. Narrators were fantastic though.

6 hours in and I'm so bored. So far the only thing remotely intestine is the bad guy. Both MCs are so bland and boring that listening to their portion of the story is excruciating.

Edward "Easy" Cantrell knows better than most the pain of not being able to save those he loves - which is why he is not going to let Jenna Dean out of his sight. He may have just met her, but Jenna's the first person to make him feel alive since that devastating day in the desert more than a year ago. Jenna has never met anyone like Easy. She can't describe how he makes her feel - and not just because he saved her life. No, the stirrings inside her stretch far beyond gratitude.

Piper Oliver knows she can't trust him. They warned her that the tall, dark, and sexy black-ops soldier Jory Dean would try to win her over with his steel-gray eyes and deadly charm, but she won't be conned by this man they call a traitor. All she has to do is figure out the science necessary to save his life, and she's done. Something isn't adding up, though, and she won't rest until she uncovers the truth - even if it's buried in his deep, dangerous kiss.

I really loved this series. The characters were all very well written and you could feel the emotions that they went thru. My only problem for me was the ending I would have liked to see further in the future instead it was over in the present and left somethings unresolved. For the most part though it did tie most of the stories up.

This series is amazing. Holy hotness lol. the only complaint I have is that there really should be a male narrator for hero POV in these books, though the narrator they do have does a good job it could have been even better.

A new romance novel by New York Times bestselling author H. M. Ward about sex, soul mates, and deadly secrets. When Celebrity Magazine declares rock star Trystan Scott the sexiest man alive, I'm not surprised. How can anyone claim otherwise about those blazing blue eyes, rock-hard abs, dark hair, and a totally lickable dimple? Before the billionaire playboy rose to stardom, we were friends for a while and lovers for a night. Though that was nearly a decade ago, our connection burns brightly in my memory. We weren't a one night stand, not to me.

waaaaaaay to much unnecessary drama. lol half of which doesn't even make sense or even work with the story. oh and in case you were wondering they aren't even together for pretty much the whole book. (FOR A DUMB ASS reason that also doesn't make sense. And the guy narrator sounds like he is 60 not 30!

"In here," he said, pushing on the skin above my heart, "you're 10 below zero. And you're closer to death than I am." My name is Parker. My body is marked with scars from an attack I don't remember. I don't want to remember. I choose to live my life by observation, not through experience. While people are laughing and kissing and connecting, I'm in the corner. Watching them live. I'm indifferent to everything, everyone. The only emotion I feel with any kind of depth is annoyance, and I feel it often.

I've come to understand that I'll always find her. She's my North Star, my sense of direction. In her I've found my home. She tells me I saved her. But the truth is she saved me. But nothing good can ever last. Andra's keeping secrets. She's holding something back. I'm trying desperately to anchor her. To let me in, to let me help.
