This is my third listening of this book and series. Each listening is as good as the first. This book is fun, full of action and adventure. What I love about this book is that you get more of a look into Ramos and his past.
I love this series and I can tell you every book in this series is brilliant and fun. Colleen Helme is one of my all time favourite authors. This cozy myself series is full of mystery, adventure and laughs. Love it.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It’s a great book full of adventure and intrigue. A great start to a amazing series.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Silver. She is a resilient courageous charecter. And can be a little dorky and funny which I like.

Which character – as performed by Nicole Poole – was your favorite?

She does a great job with all the characters but Silver is my favourite.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Trying to be spoiler free. The challenge at the end.

Any additional comments?

This is the first book to this world. There are two other series by this Author. She recommends Starting with this series then Seven then Crossbreed. All her series are in the Mageri World. Not knowing the reading order I actually read the Seven series first. It’s a really, really good series too. But so you get a good handle on the Breed world I recommend like the Author sugests that you read this series the Mageri first. There is also a series cross over with book 4 in the Seven series. This book is a great slow introduction to the Breed World and all its complexities. You’ll get sucked into this amazing New World like I did and not want to leave.

Willa Knight: Dweller? Bad-ass? Notorious pet to five magical beings? In Blesswood, there are rules, and someone is trying to teach her how to follow them. The only problem is Willa. Which shouldn’t be anything new, since she has been a problem since birth — something her pseudo-sister Emmy would agree on. So it definitely shouldn’t be new, but it is. Because things are starting to happen that have never happened before. Things are starting to get chaotic.

I live in a area that grows sugar cane and pineapples. They do not burn sugarcane here anymore, it actually reduces the sugar content in the cane.
Pineapples also do not grow on trees. Lol. Pineapples grow on a plant that grows on the ground. It was a hilarious mistake. Otherwise this was a fun story and I loved it.

Would you listen to Hex on the Beach again? Why?

Yes. It's a fun listen. As the first in the series it's introducing you to a new workd. I will be buying the rest of the series when they come out. So I will relisten to the series again in preparation for the next books. With some authors it can be a chore or I dont even bother. With this book I will enjoy relistening to it again.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Lilly. She's sassy and a little precious. It's fun watching her stumble through this new world.

Which character – as performed by Wendy Tremont King – was your favorite?

I honestly loved all the charecter she portrayed in the book. She did a good job and it was easy to tell the difference between charecters and who was speaking.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I listened into the early hours of the morning trying to finish the book.

Any additional comments?

It's a fun listen. I really enjoyed it. Can't wait for the next book.

If you could sum up Wildest Dreams in three words, what would they be?

Amazing Fantasy Romance.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the world building. This is the first in the series so there is a lot of world building which is wonderful. A amazing fantasy world with Kristen Ashley's touch. Think of a Medievil World with Elves, Dragons and Magic.

Which scene was your favorite?

At the end of the Book when Frey appears with his Dragons. I won't say anymore I hate spoilers.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Kristen Ashley's books always make me laugh and this book did too. This book is full of fun, fantasy and romance.

Any additional comments?

What I love most about Kristen Ashley's self published books is the length. 18 hours and 49 minutes what a bargain. This gives you time to get to know the characters and get lost in a wonderful story, and have many adventures with them. This is a amazing series, you won't regret buying it.

Last month I was a single preschool teacher whose greatest thrill consisted of color-coding my lesson plans. That was before I learned I was a slayer. Now it's up to me to face curse-hurling imps, vengeful demons, and any other supernatural uglies that crop up. And to top it off, a hunk of a shape-shifting griffin has invited me to Greece to meet his family.

Would you consider the audio edition of A Tale of Two Demon Slayers to be better than the print version?

Yes. Tavia Gilbert is my favourite reader. She brings this book alive. Like she did Jeaniene Frosts Night Huntress series. I started this series because Tavia Gilbert is the Narator.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Grandma. She's a hilarious old duck. Instead of being the typical old lady with cups of tea and knitting. She's the leader of a coven of Witch Bikers, down to earth and Hilarious. But I love Lizzy and Dimitri too.

Which character – as performed by Tavia Gilbert – was your favorite?

Pirate the Jack Russell. The way Tavia does the voice, so excited and manic. You can imagine this little dog talking.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Octogenarian Biker Witches Greek Holiday from Hell.

Any additional comments?

This book is wonderful. Lizzy grows as a Charecter facing her fears. Remember this all started only a couple months earlier. I love this whole series. This book has twists and turns. Never a dull moment. I'm glad Tavia Gilbert is the Narator for this series. This Wacky series with its outrageous but loveable characters is a perfect fit for Tavia's talent. This third book is just as good as the other two.

This Military romance is set in Afghanistan. It's a story full of action and adventure and a blossoming love. This is a short sweet romance with a happy ending.
I love hot and heavy books. But sometimes those books get boring. With the action and adventure, this one is anything but boring. There is no sex in this book but it really doesn't need it. The story is a good one. If you love adventure a little romance and a happy ending this quick listen is for you.

Assignment Numero Dos for Lacey comes straight from the Godfather himself. When one of the Luzzi Family's low-ranking associates turns up dead, Carlos believes it may be the doing of the rival Russian mob, and he orders Lacey to find the killer. But every detail about the assignment is a little too neat, a little too tidy, and a little too good to be true. Could this really be an open and shut case, complete with a confession from the murderer?

This is the second in this series, I loved Sprinkled and I loved this one. I love Lacey's misadventures. The characters are whacky and fun. This book is about Lacey solving a murder and her cousins upcoming wedding which the whole family have to go to.
This book is light and fun and I adore her whacked best friend. And towards the end you get more of a glimpse into Lacey the orphaned girl that just wanted a family. The whole reason she ended up with her Mafia relatives. She stumbles around trying to fit into her new life. Which gives us lots of laughs.
This book was well written and I honestly didn't see the twist at the end. A lot of it I did guess, but the main twist I didn't. The narration was well done and the narrators voice suited this Character. She did well with the characters different voices too. To me with Audio Books it's important that you have a great Narrator. They can make or break a book. And this narrator made this book for me.
So if you want a fun, light story that will make you laugh. Then this book is for you.

Abducted at 18. Held captive for 15 months. It reads like one of those headlines. And yes, I did it. I stole her. Nora, with her long dark hair and silky skin. She's my weakness, my obsession. I'm not a good man. I never pretended to be one. She can love me, but she can't change me. I can, however, change her. My name is Julian Esguerra, and Nora is mine to keep.

This book went way past my expectations. I loved the first one but really loved this one. The growth of Nora in this book is great. And she's taking control of her life, as much as she can under Julian's control. She lives in a dangerous world so she adapts, she changes.
She's not a victim anymore. I loved towards the end when she faced her fear and rescued him.
The narration was pretty good. I love it when they have a male and female narrator. It really adds to the story. And the male narrators voice suited Julian. And the female voice suited 20 year old Nora.
This is a brilliant series and Julian's Character suits the world he grew up and life's in. Some Authors strive for a bad ass and fall short, Julian doesn't. Julian is really realistic. The Authors pull no punches. Julian is not a good guy, never will be. But he loves Nora. This is a great listen can't wait for the third book. I'm really thankful the author decided to make this into a series instead of just one book. Thanks for listening to your fans
