Where do I start? This is the first book I have listened to from Lauren Landish and the narrating combination of Tor Thom and Melissa Moran and it won’t be my last.

I was hooked from chapter one. In fact the opening page had me riveted. This was not a long listen but boy did Lauren Landish pack a lot into this story

I want a Liam Blackstone in my life. I haven’t read the first book in the series but I am off to listen to book 1 as soon as possible.

This story was hot and an enjoyable listen and the narrators did a great job.

After the accident, the chief was pushing me to retire. Being a firefighter was all I had ever wanted, what I lived for. Well, other than my 12-year-old daughter, Abby. Raising her as a single dad, much less a busy firefighter, wasn't easy, but life never is. Then a call came in from an all-too-familiar area code. I was being beckoned back to my hometown, back to Canon. I had left that small town years ago, leaving behind a lot, including...her.

I love the Single dad romance genre so I was eager to listen to Burnt by new to me author Lacy Hart and narrators Juliana Solo and Daniel James Lewis. Add in the fact that it was a second chance at love story and I was ready to dive in.

This was a sweet romance that burned very slowly. In fact it took 14 years to burst into flames. Travis and Sophie were an item in college, that was before he decided to leave and pursue a career as a fire fighter.

Fast forward 14 years and now Travis is the father to a 12 year old daughter, he was recently injured in a horrific fire that claimed the life of his best friend. He has struggled to overcome the injuries he sustained and has been fighting against forced retirement from the job he loved.

When a phone calls him back, they return to his hometown. Imagine his shock when he finds out that Sophie returned home all those years ago. She is now a teacher at the local middle school.

Neither Travis or Sophie have ever asked after one another for fear of learning that they had moved on. Sophie is a 32 year old who never got over losing her first love. When she realises that Travis has returned she sets out to re connect with him, to see if the sparks are still there.

I enjoyed the story and will be looking for more from this author.

The narration by Juliana Solo and Daniel James Lewis is good, although I didn’t get as much of an emotional connection from the male narrator as I did the female.

Valentine French may be the sassiest dating columnist in New York City, but the abundance of metrosexuals in her adopted metropolis is seriously cramping her style. Where are the beefy all-American boys? Hoping to find some inspiration, Val heads to Alaska, where the men outnumber the women 15 to one and wrestle grizzly bears for sport. Or so she can only imagine.

Wow, what a great book. I loved this from start to finish. When New York socialite and dating expert/blogger Valentine French decides she has had enough of the metro-sexual men she has been dating in New York, her cousin suggests she travel to the wilds of Alaska to see if she can find what is missing from her life. Little does Valentine (my friends call me Valley or Val) know that her decision will change her life in ways she cannot imagine.

This was an hilarious read, with many laugh out loud moments that had me almost in tears at the predicaments, city girl Val gets herself into. Throw in that the population is almost 15 men to 1 woman and you can only imagine what fun is in store.

Logan Burke is the police chief in the small town of East Merritt where Val decides to visit, he is also the man who constantly comes to her rescue, swooping in to save her time and again.

Determined to date as many Alaskan men as she can, Val is off to a flying start. Complications arise, as one date after another ends badly, but true to form it gives her great material for her dating blog.

Val is instantly attracted to Logan but he does not seem to be interested, that is until she gets lost and he again rescues her and takes her back to his cabin to warm up. Sparks fly, lust abounds,will this night be more fodder for Val's dating blog?

Of course the true course of romance does not run smoothly and Logan is furious when he finds out about Val's blog posts regarding her dating adventures in Alaska.

This book is a stand alone and one that I highly recommend you read. Sawyer Bennett always brings her characters to life and her style of writing is excellent. Sex In The Sticks is one of the best books I have read this year.There was smoking hot romance, humour, edge of your seat tension as I hoped that Logan and Val would finally come together and as usually happens, I didn’t want this one to end.

I love a woman who knows what or who she wants and goes for it. Eve Sander tragically lost her husband in a freak accident years ago. When she attends a functions she sees best friends quarterback Lawrence “Long Arm” Landis and his former team mate Cole Dixon and is immediately attracted to them.

When the opportunity to bid on both of them comes her way at a charity auction she does and is successful in winning a date with both Ren and Cole. This is when the fun begins. After their initial dates, it is obvious that Eve is attracted to both men and begins dating them separately, however Ren is far from happy; the men have no clue that what Eve wants is a menage relationship with them both.

When she finally tells Ren and Cole her feelings and wants, she is surprised by the reactions. Cole is openly bisexual and has been attracted to Ren for years but has never acted on his feelings so he is very interested in pursing this, Ren is not so sure.

There was certainly some intense chemistry between all three of the characters and the narration by  Ava Lucas, Tor Thom, and JF Harding really added to my listening enjoyment.

I did feel that the story ended rather suddenly once they finally got together but then perhaps there are plans for an additional book?

Hailey Bishop was used to low expectations, accepting whatever the world’s tides sent her way. She had a boyfriend, a best friend, and a degree in library sciences, although no job yet. If Brian ever proposed, she'd probably say yes. Then Hailey got the "letter", unexpectedly, from a sister at the orphanage in which she'd grown up. It revealed the name of her birth mother. It took Hailey only a few Google searches to find Annabel Edwards, who was semi-famous and living in Spain. Hailey not only had a mother, but two sisters who each had triplets.

Both the author and narrator were new to me so I couldn’t wait to dice in and listen to the story. Even though I had not read the previous two books in this series I had no problem at all in following the The Billionaire’s Triplets: The Fake Fiancee.

Meghan Kelly did a great job with the narration and was able to convey all the emotions I was feeling as I listened to this book. I also liked that she did a variety of voices for the characters and I found that she was easy to listen too.

I loved how brave Hailey was in jetting off into the unknown in search of her family and even though he was a bit of an arrogant jerk, Alexander really did come into his own whilst they were in Scotland.

The relationships that Hailey built with her sisters and mother as secondary characters in the book was heart warming and all in all this was an enjoyable book to listen too. When time permits I will go back and get the first couple of books in the series.

This was a great story which had me anxious to see how it all turned out. So much so that I was a tad disappointed that it stopped when it did. I would have loved to have known what happened to Alexander and Hailey as they went through her pregnancy and beyond. I hope that we find out in a future story.

Blue Brigham was the man of the farm from an early age, so it was easy to get swept up in his older-than-his-years charm all those years ago. But when it came down to it, legal wasn't enough to keep a town like theirs from talking, and Harper Haley just wouldn't risk going public with their brief affair. She'd packed up and left town to marry another man her own age, thinking she'd left the past behind. Blue thought he knew what he signed up for when he moved his sister back in at the farm after her husband left her for another woman, but when Harper shows up, he knows he's in for trouble, still holding onto the grudge from all those years before....

An older woman and a younger man. Big Man Blue is a friends to lovers/enemies/lovers story that drew me in when I read the blurb.

Blue Brigham won my heart from the start and that did not change throughout the book although there were a couple of times where I felt he crossed a line. When his teenage love, Harper Haley, the woman who suddenly disappeared from his life for 10 years comes back to town, all the resentment, anger and hurts of the past come flooding back.

However all is not as it appears and soon Blue learns that not all decisions Harper made were her own. As they struggle to get past their hurt and anger their love slowly re blooms.

The narration was great and the narrators were able to convey all the emotions I was feeling as I listened to this book.

This was am emotional roller coaster of a story at times and was my first book from Nicole R Locker and it won’t be my last.

Book three in what has become one of my favourite series. I thoroughly enjoy Ms. Phillips writing style and Freed is no exception. Her characters are strong and easy to relate too and I particularly liked how she built the story up.

For years Juliette Collins has been isolated from the world, not knowing that she has sisters who have been searching for her. That is until she discovers a file on her father’s computer and she learns the shocking truth.Her father is dead set against her seeking out her sisters but Juliette has had enough, she wants, no needs, to know her siblings.

Braden Clark, a private investigator, has been employed to watch over Juliette by her over protective father. What he doesn’t count on is being attracted to his charge. The attraction growing between Juliette and Braden is strong and hard to ignore. Life is about to get complicated for these two.

What will happen when Juliette finds out the truth about who he really is? Will she be able to forgive his deception?

It was so nice to catch up on the previous two couples and see what is happening in their lives and it was heart warming to watch the love and relationship develop between Juliette and her sisters,Phoebe and Halley.

I truly felt for Braden and the struggle he has with a father suffering from Alzheimer's and the difficulties he has in trying to keep his business afloat and care for his father.

The chemistry between Juliette and Braden is hot and their story romantic. I really liked both the main characters and found myself totally engrossed in their story.

Although a stand alone I do think you would enjoy reading book 1 Fearless as well. This series gets better and better and I cannot wait for the next book in the Rosewood Bay series.

This was the first book I have read/listened to by Marla Josephs and Chloe Hampton as narrator did a good job.
I enjoyed listening to this story and although it is my first it will not be my last book from Marla Josephs. The narrator changed voices well and I felt relaxed listening as the story flowed well. I loved both Morgan and Avery and was intrigued by the story line of the book since I love road trips.
The chemistry between Morgan and Avery was most certainly there and I loved the relationship that Avery had with his sister and niece in particular. I found myself smiling and laughing throughout my listen and was disappointed when it ended. If you a looking for a fun, sweet and not to long a read/listen then I recommend this feel good book.

4 Star review Swept (Polished #2) by Alyssa Turner

I listened to this on audible and all the narrators did a credible job. This was a very hot and passionate book which is a MMF with elements of BDSM.

Swept was a more intense listen/read than the first book in the series and had me invested right from the start and it was certainly just as, if not more, steamy.

What happens when your dominant looses his desire to dominate? That is the position that Spencer and Rory find themselves in when Jack becomes distant and withdrawn. They all love each other, there is no doubting that, but Jack seems to have pulled back from the dynamic of their relationship.

Struggling with issues at work and the fact that he is close to bankruptcy, Jack makes hard decisions that go against everything he believes in and that has a knock on affect with his relationship with Spencer and Rory.

Will Jack finally believe that he is good enough for Rory and Spencer, or will his insecurities bring their relationship down? Will Rory have the courage to confront her parents and tell them the truth not only about her relationship with both Jack and Spencer but also about the wedding they are planning? Can Spencer hold the relationship with the people he loves more than life itself together as they all struggle to come to terms with the changes that have occurred?
