No guy has ever been able to get me off. It was my little secret. Until I accidentally told the whole world. Spilling something so humiliating on my social media is bad enough; I never expected anyone to actually message me about it. Especially not someone as smug and sexy as Heath "O Maker" James. He tells me he doesn't just think he can get me off - he knows it. As hot as he is, he's a total stranger. I shouldn't give him the time of day.

There are some truly cringe worthy moments of embarrassment. As the title suggests, there is a lot of fire, especially in the dirty talk department. 👍
Heath is book boyfriend worthy.
First title by Penny Wilder, will be checking out what else she has in audio for sure.
Also first listen by Katie McCabe, and she didn't disappoint.

Twenty-nine-year-old Blair Walker is a girl with a plan, or more like a girl with a list - a list of dos and don'ts to live the perfect life, land a dream career, and marry Mr. Right. But when Blair loses her job and gets dumped by her boyfriend all in one day, she starts to wonder if she's had it all wrong. And what better way to find out than experience everything the list forbade?

Sometimes you just want to break the rules of niceties. This is the story of a girl that had too much and just let loose and broke them all! Very cute and PG, for those that don't like sex talk. The characters were great and voiced well by Audra Cook, with the exception of her British characters. This is my first time listening to Camilla, and I'm interested to see if any of the side characters are in the other books in this series, because there are some juicy stories if that is true. 🤞

Or an adventure specialist!

A steamy short that pulls the heart strings. I can totally relate to the disappointment of your efforts to help blowing up on your face. 😭 And though the main couple had a rocky start, they manage to up-cycle things in the end. Cute, with a set up for the next one with the brother. Looking forward to that.
The narration parts of the sex scenes were a bit dull, but Rebecca saves it on the excellent character voices.
As for Leslie's stories, you really can't go wrong.

When I go out to chop down a Christmas tree, the last thing I expect to find is a woman caught in a snowstorm. But there she is, lost and alone. And f*cking gorgeous. I take her home with me - my cabin will warm her up... and so will I. Meeting her was serendipity... and letting her go isn’t an option. But her life isn’t built around Mistletoe Mountain the way mine is. This mountain man is hoping for a Christmas miracle.

Logan McAlister is one of my favorite narrators, but I had a hard time following the story voice. I wish there was more distinction between who's "head" we were in. The character voices were good.

Well, there it is, another failed relationship. And right before Christmas time, too. After breaking up with my boyfriend, the only thing I want to do is get out of town and have some time to myself. Thankfully, my best friend Jake has a cabin that I can go to for the weekend. Except that Jake forgot that the cabin already has been booked for the weekend. So I'm pretty surprised when I go up there and find Chris relaxing in the cabin. And I drove four hours to get here! Thankfully, Chris is nice enough to let me stay the night so I don't have to drive home in bad weather.

A wedding cruise + a hottie, a fake fiance, and a pschyo. What could possibly go wrong?

Sky Corgan excells at steamy novellas, and this one didn't disappoint. A great fake fiance stand-alone. There is a lot of story for only 2 hours. Danny's ex needed to be committed. Seriously!

Megan had some trouble maintaining the accents, especially with the males. She makes up for it by having clear distinguishment between the various characters. 👍

Enter handsome Jack Davis, the modern day cowboy next door, who shatters her suburban expectations as he helps get the farm up and running.
