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.

Mia Caldwell delivers a steamy good book! Haley and Alex’s relationship may have started with lies, it is quickly clear that these two are made for each other. Alex rises from his dark times like a Phoenix, giving him a new concept of what is truly important. Having Meghan Kelly as a narrator was a great choice!

My name is Charlie, and I'm invisible. Well, not literally, but until one of the most popular guys at Eden High saved my life, nobody even knew I existed. Sean Reese gave me more than my life back that night. He gave me friendship. And maybe, just maybe, I can save him, too. Will he still be my friend when he finds out my secret?

Charlie and Sean are two tortured souls, brought together they are made whole. Kristie Haigwood has me hooked and waiting, not so patiently, for part two. Charlie, an introvert, is content wearing her invisibility cloak and just trying to go unnoticed until one fateful night when everything changes and Sean walks into her life. Their friendship gets really intense fairly quickly, and it becomes clear that Sean needs Charlie just as much as she needs him. I can’t wait for “Becoming Charlie: Part Two”!

Mystic Parker created a story full of lust, laughs, and warm fuzzy feelings. I didn’t want to stop listening due to the anticipation of finding out what was going to happen next. Megan Kelly brings the characters to life and has an easy transition between characters that is easy to follow. One of the best books I have listened to in a while.

Things that bite are pretty common in the land down under. A predator could be lurking behind every tree, inside every shadow. It is, however, a horrible new menace that threatens the serenity of the vast, sunburnt country: washed inland on a wave of toxic waste, mixed with great white sharks and sleazy topless waitresses. The outback is dry and boring at the best of times...but now, it really bites!

I loved the concept of the Shark Sheila’s! The actual build up of the story took a bit longer than I prefer in a story but once the climax of the story hit, the book was freakin amazing! Everything I could ever want in a shark story. Tom Edwards did a great job keeping me engrossed in the story. Overall a shark lovers dream story!

Hattie is a strong young woman, that overcomes all the bad things life sends her way. Consumption and a desire for love leads her down a dark path with little hope, until there is a light at the end of the tunnel in the form of a man with a star. I enjoyed every minute of this book. The harsh reality of what the Wild West was like and sometimes women took the brunt of the brutality. Another stellar performance from Meghan Kelly!

Hattie definitely gets an adventure when she is sent West to be a mail order bride. Heartbreaking and joyous, this story gives a peek at what it was like for some of these woman sent out to be mail order brides. Vivi Holt does a great job capturing some of the fears and struggles of being a woman in some of these untamed places. The fabulous Meghan Kelly makes the story come to life and gives an easy transition between characters. Can’t wait for the next one!

Adams did a fantastic job with this story! One of my favorite parts in this story, and I will admit that I cried a bit, was when the town folks heard of their misfortune and came to help. I appreciated the love and forgiveness that happens and the building of relationships. Meghan Kelly was a great choice in narration because she has a gift in bringing each and every character to life.

Gabriel Carter is the biggest, cockiest asshole I've ever met. He's a six-foot-three ex-baseball player with sexy muscles and smoldering looks that turn my body into a traitorous mess. Did I mention he's also the reason business at my family's hotel is quickly going down the drain? I shouldn't want him, but try explaining that to my body. Especially after he proposes a business deal to me that will be mutually rewarding - both financially and sexually. Sleep with the enemy? Nah, I'll just marry the bastard instead.

A wonderfully written story about two people who need each other to have successful businesses. What starts out as a temporary arrangement turns into something neither of them expected. The character growth of both Gabe and Maggie is fantastic. Gabe’s willingness to help Maggie’s family was very endearing and had me rooting for him. Meghan Kelly did a phenomenal job bring these characters to life.

Della Stout can hardly believe it when her father tells her he's lost it all - the money, the house, the servants, their entire fortune. But things only get worse when they inform her she's to be sent west, as a mail order bride. When she meets her husband to be, she's less than impressed - by him and the dusty little town he lives in.

In this sweet and light historical romance, Della has a bumpy start. Finding out that she has lost out of her inheritance, causing her to be unwanted by her suitors, and being shipped off to be a mail order bride, Della shows perseverance and strength. She soon learns that taking care of her husband and home is a lot of work. Vivi Holt gets to the heart of what the fears of most of the mail order brides of the time period. The wonderful Meghan Kelly, breathes life into each character.
