Words like unnatural and impure started the whispers. From the very beginning, Ivy Blackwood was different. She was only a child when she was accused of setting the fire, one she passively watched engulf the small house she had called home. Her fingertips burned, and her hair singed. Some who watched her crossed themselves, convinced she was soulless for she showed no emotion at all. Calm and dispassionate, even when the screaming started that quickly turned to bellows of agony before dying into nothing but the roaring of the fire.

Absolutely loved the journey this story led me on. I was drawn in from the start as the setting of New Orleans - my favorite U.S. City - totally captivated me.

You know the story is well told, written perfectly with amazing narration, when you dream about it. This story was an epic love story that makes you swoon and at the same time it has the suspense that literally made the hairs on my neck and arms stand on end.

Aaron Shedlock and Tracy Marks have amazing chemistry and would so love for them to record a dual audio book. They have an ability to make a story come to life.

Highly recommend!!!

They say Rafe Hunter is trouble with a capital T. I say - bring it on.  As long as Trouble comes in a package as delicious as Rafe’s, I’m ready to climb on his Harley and ride all night long - and I’m not just talking about his motorcycle. I can hide out until the scandal with my evil ex blows over and have a wild rebound at the same time. Besides, I’ve got no heart left to break. My ex made sure of that. As long as Rafe and I keep our no-strings fling from our families, what can possibly go wrong?

I hate my new roommate. And I want to do dirty, delicious things to her in that swing she installed that we both know has nothing to do with aerial yoga. Neither of which is good, considering Diana Daniels is my NHL team captain's little sister, and he will break my face if I'm not a perfect gentleman. I try to be. Really, I do. But Diana has all sorts of Jedi mind tricks to make a man obsessed with getting her into bed, and I'm not gonna lie - I fall for every single one of them.

At 34, I'm reeling from a divorce. I don't want to party or try to move on. I just want to stay home and post a new recipe on my blog: Brynn's Dips and Balls. But my friends aren't having it. Get out there again, they say. It will be fun, they say. I'm still taking a hard pass. Free designer cocktails, they say. And that's a game-changer. Too bad my ex shows up with his new arm candy. That's when I lose my mind.

The best way to get over someone is to get under someone else. And I have the perfect candidate all picked out. My new assistant is tempting beyond belief with her curvy body and take-no-shit attitude. All those luscious curves, and a juicy ass I’m already in love with. God, the things that I would do to that ass.... But it’s the haunted look in her eyes that speaks to me. Like she’s taken just as much shit in her past as I have - maybe more. We both deserve a little fun.

Wow. I absolutely loved Warrior!!
The story was so beautifully written. Character development was amazing and I could picture every scene. This is definitely one that played out like a movie in my head.
Zachary Webber proved once again how talented of a performer he really is. The Russian accent was perfection! He went from an English accent, to Scottish, to British then back to Russian flawlessly. He truly has a gift and is such a treasure.
Highly recommend. This is one of my top listens for 2017.

It was a hot summer day when I met him on the construction site next to my parents' house. Under the sweat and dirt, Manning Sutter was as handsome as the sun was bright. He was older, darker, experienced. I wore a smiley-face t-shirt and had never even been kissed. I was too young, he said. I would wait. But I'd learn that no matter what you achieve in life, it means nothing if you suffer the heartbreak that comes with falling for someone you can never have. Because even though I saw Manning first, that didn't matter. My older sister saw him next.

This series is my favorite of all time. The brilliant writing from Jessica Hawkins is brought to life by the dynamic duo of Andi Arndt and Zachary Webber.

So much heart and soul went into this story and the narration is the best of the best. It's emotionally charged and pulls at your heartstrings.

Nostalgia. It takes us back to a place where we long to be. It's full of pop culture and Pink Floyd music. You will look at the stars with very different eyes after experiencing this story through Lake and Manning.

Highly highly recommend.

At 11 he was my first crush. At 16 he became mine. At 19 he broke my heart and destroyed me. That was 10 years ago and the last time I saw Cole Ryan. They say you never get over your first love...I beg to differ. I left my shattered heart buried in a town I never expected to return to. I erased every thought of him and buried the memories never to be found. I moved on...now, 10 years later, I have the perfect life, the perfect fiancé, the perfect career. Everything I ever wanted until I'm forced to go back and face my past and the man that destroyed me.
