Diving Whiskey Wild is a fun, sweet romance that tugs at your emotions. Bullet a whiskey has demons that he’s been carrying around for years. He a definite alpha male, with a heart of gold. He’s immediately captivated by Finlay from the first time he saw her. Finlay has moved back to Peaceful Harbor to start over and to be closer to her sister. Finlay is strong independent woman who will not leave Bullet run over her. She’s a perfect match for Bullet and goes head to head with him on several occasions. I love how Finlay is able to get Bullet to open up and free his demons and that she’s able to see through his tough guy exterior to see the sweet man his is. Bullet and Finlay are great supports for each other. What an excellent book, I immediately fell in love with Bullet and I’m glad he found the happiness he deserves.
Paul Woodson is an excellent narrator and brings Driving Whiskey Wild to life. I enjoy listening to him and get lost in the story.

I am really enjoying Addison Cole's Sweet with Heat series. Jenna Ward is a fun loving, confident woman until she's around the guy she's been crushing on forever, Pete Lacroux. Pete's life is busy, between taking care of his alcoholic father, worrying about his siblings and his job he doesn't have time for a relationship of his own. He loves being around the "Seaside Girls" and spending time with them, even though Jenna confuses the heck out of him, always shy and tongue tied around him. Jenna decides to give up on Pete and asks another guy out. When Pete finds out, his true feelings surface, ones he didn't even knew he had. You can't help but love Jenna and Pete who knew laid back Pete Lacroux would turn into such an alpha male once he realized his true feelings. I definitely recommend giving this series a try! Melissa Moran adds so much to this story with her narration. I love listening to her. Makes you fall deeper in love with all of the characters.

What an absolutely amazing book by Melissa Foster. I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I started this book, but Ms. Foster hit every emotion I had. I can't tell you how many times I reached for the tissues. Truman tugged at my heart strings the entire way. Truman, a definite alpha is now taking care of his two younger siblings and hasn't got a clue on how to do that. Truman runs into Gemma at the store and she helps him buy what he needs to take care of them. Gemma is instantly drawn to Truman's caring and compassionate way of dealing with the young children. Truman begins falling for Gemma and wants to share his past with her so they can hopefully have a future. Truman show us his softer side when it comes to his family and it makes you fall in love with him even more. I cannot wait to see what else Melissa Foster has in store with this series!
Paul Woodson brought this book to life in the audio version. Reading it brought tears my eyes, but listening to it was even better. He did an amazing job narrating this wonderful story.

Bella Abbascia has returned to Seaside Cottages in Wellfleet, Massachusetts, as she does every summer. Only this year, Bella has more on her mind than sunbathing and skinny-dipping with her girlfriends. She's quit her job, put her house on the market, and sworn off relationships while she builds a new life in her favorite place on earth. That is, until good-time Bella's prank takes a bad turn and a handsome police officer appears on the scene. Single father and police officer Caden Grant left Boston with his 14-year-old son, Evan, after his partner was killed in the line of duty. He hopes to find a safer life in the small resort town of Wellfleet, and when he meets Bella during a night patrol shift, he realizes he's found the one thing he'd never allowed himself to hope for - or even realized he was missing.

Best-selling author Kurt Remington lives to write. He spends 12 hours a day in front of his computer, rarely leaving the seclusion of his beach-front property, where he's come to finish his latest thriller - that is, until free-spirited Leanna Bray nearly drowns in the ocean trying to save her dog. Kurt's best-laid plans are shot to hell when he comes to their rescue. Kurt's as irritated as he is intrigued by the sexy, hot mess of a woman who lives life on a whim, forgets everything, and doesn't even know the definition of the word organized.

Kurt Remington is a novelist who is always focused and always on time for his deadlines. Leanna Bray is a free spirit who sells jellies/jams and has no order in her life and nothing is on time. When Leanna shows up in front of Kurt's beach house searching for her dog who ran off in to the ocean he reluctantly goes and helps her, not knowing his life will never be the same. Kurt and Leanna have an instant attraction and you can feel their chemistry building throughout the book. Read, Write, Love at Seaside is a sweet, fun loving book. You can feel the attraction Kurt and Leanna have without any graphic sex scenes. What an enjoyable, easy read!

Having a mad crush on her boss’s son, Matt Lacroux - an intriguing mix of proper gentleman and flirtatious bad boy - is probably not the smartest idea for single mother Mira Savage. Especially when the company and her job, is already on shaky ground. But as a Princeton professor, Matt’s life is hours away from Mira’s home on Cape Cod, keeping him safely in the fantasy-only zone. And as a single mother to six-year-old Hagen, with a floundering company to save, fantasies are all she has time for.

Whispers at Seaside is another great addition to the Seaside Summer series. Matt has always focused on his goals, but lately he has been wanting more. Matt spent time with Mira and her son last summer and that is all he can think about, especially when all of his siblings are falling in love. Mira is a single mother who is focused on her son. She has kept in touch with Matt since last summer and is happy when Matt takes a sabbatical and moves back home for a few months. Mira tries to protect herself from getting too attached to Matt, knowing he will be heading back home after his sabbatical. Matt and Mira's relationship starts off as friends first and throughout the story their relationship grows. I fell in love with Matt and Mira from the very beginning. I love Matt's alpha side but also his soft, romantic, nurturing side as well. This is a great series by Addison Cole and I can't wait until the next book.
I really enjoyed the narrators of this audible book. They really brought this book to life.

What a fabulous new series by Melissa Foster. Reed and Grace secretly dated when they were teenagers. Grace left their little town, headed off to school and had plans to make it big in New York. Reed was heart broken when Grace left and to move away because of the memories. Grace is home visiting and Reed has moved back to help his uncle and they run into each other and sparks fly. Old feelings are still there and they decide to start seeing each other but this time no secrets. You instantly fall in love with Reed and Grace, in fact you fall in love with all of the characters plus the town of Oak Falls. Reed and Grace are a great fit together. Once you start this book, you won’t want to put it down.
I really enjoyed the narrators Andi Arndt and Sebastian York. They captured Reed and Grace's characters and really brought them to life.

World-renowned mountain climber and nature photographer Ty Braden never believed in second dates, much less heart-pounding, steal-his-breath love. But that was before a trip to Saint-Luc, where he met funny, strong, and entrancingly beautiful Aiyla Bell, a ski instructor and fellow photographer whose hopes and dreams, and love of the outdoors, aligned perfectly with his - and whose kisses alone turned him inside out.

Thrill of Love was a FANTASIC book! I've been anticipating Ty Braden's book for a while, but I never imagined it like this. Ty Braden is a mountain climber and nature photographer. Ty has no intentions on settling down, he doesn't even believe in second dates, that is until he meets Aiyla Bell. Ty meets Aiyla in Saint-Luc where she was a ski instructor and fellow photographer. He was instantly taken by her and wants her to follow him on his next assignment. After months of hoping he will run into Aiyla they finally meet up with each other at an event in Colorado. The chemistry they shared in Saint-Luc is still there and it takes Ty no time to realize that she is "the one" for him. Ty is bound and determined that he wont leave Aiyla walk away from him again, even when tragedy turns their lives up side down. I loved how fiercly Ty loves Aiyla and how his alpha side came out when he was protecting her and when his soft nurturing side was there for her when she needed it. The Braden's had me literally sobbing when they rallied around Aiyla and supported her and Ty. Thrill of Love tugged at my heartstrins several times. I'm so glad we got to see Ty be the man we all knew he really was. I absolutely LOVED this book!
B.J. Harrison is wonderful to listen to. I cried when reading this book and cried even harder listening to it. What a great narrator.
