Derek McMillan has been managing his farm and renting out a few holiday cottages on his own for years now. He deals with the occasional tourist for some extra money but mostly keeps to himself. When he first lays eyes on the curvy beauty, Clarice, he immediately regrets accepting her booking. Lightning strikes, and as much as he tries to deny it, his inner bear knows that she's his mate. But he's a shifter, and she's a human, and the two can't ever mix, can they?

This was actually quite interesting. I liked that there was some intrigue throughout the story, and I'm eager to find out where Derek's brother fits in.

This was a very interesting book. It was really sweet how Hudson and Brielle interact, but I can't help but feel annoyed by Brielle at the same time. This book has BDSM elements in it, which was a big turn-on, and the added mystery was a plus. Not to mention the yummy steamy bits...

Overall, not a bad read. I'm hoping to listen to the next installment... if only to see if my hunch about the harasser is correct.

Maybe it was because I don't know the back story, but this was slightly confusing and a bit disturbing. It was interesting though and I will most likely try to find the main books to see what happens next and to gain a better understanding.

This is a hot and steamy ménage-themed book about a BBW having fun with two billionaires.... Benji leans in close to whisper in my ear, and his breath on my neck hints at the waves of pleasure he could send right through me right there and then. "Do you want to come home with me?" he asks, and I nod, a little stunned....

This was quite the hot little number! Add to the fact that the two guys were really hot and loved curvy girls, and I was totally hooked. The characters were well fleshed out and Cassandra was very relatable. I felt so naughty listening to the steamy bits at work (lol). Overall, this was very good, and perfect for a quickie ;)

C.J. Phillips and cohorts have scoured much of the western world to bring you this book of the world's funniest bathroom gibberish. Attempts were made to keep the contents of all The World's Funniest Bathroom Graffiti volumes as disgustingly respectable as possible (good luck!). Unlike other graffiti books which present any kind of graffiti, this book concentrates on wall-writing that's funny.

Does Lisa Lace know how to right them or what?! This book had me at the edge of my seat from the beginning to the end! It was like the action didn't know how to end! There are so many "oh no" and "oh mt goodness" moments, I didn't know what to do with myself. The characters were also very life-like. I found myself loving Gariella's sassy mouth and at certain points I went off on Laz as if he was talking to me (lol).

Oh! And the male narrator's voice... WHEW!!! He brought Laz to life in such a way that I wished he were laying beside me saying naughty things in my ear...

Overall, this book was such an awesome book. There's no lag in the action, and the sex was as hot as ever. Most definitely looking forward to the next book in this amazing series.

Knowing the future isn't a blessing. It's a curse. Especially when you've seen your death. I'm going to die in the arms of someone I have never seen before. He's a person I will love, but I don't know anything about him. When TerraMates matched me with Airik, I couldn't believe it. This sexy alien could see the future, just like me. I wasn't alone anymore. I quickly found out he knows nothing about Earth or humans. I married him, but will I be safe with him?

Although this one was not a happy-go-lucky read, there was no shortage of drama. There was a very healthy dosage of mystery and twists. At times I even thought that there would be no HEA. (Don't ask... I won't give it away.) As usual, there are no cliffhangers so you will have all your questions answered.

I completely enjoyed this one and eagerly await the next installment.

Another slam dunk for Lisa Lace!! Action packed from start to finish and steamy to boot! This one had me at the edge of my seat the whole way. I love how feisty Eden is despite her horrible situation, and boy was I glad things turned out the way they did! One thing different about this one, there's a tear jerking bit I totally didn't see coming until it was too late. So sad... But it all ended well... VERY well...
I'm super excited to see what else TerraMates has up its not always so pretty sleeves!

Life isn't worth living without an Internet connection. I'm always on the computer, video chatting, and even reading books on my phone. It was natural for me to use the TerraMates app to find a husband. I didn't know they would match me with a sexy alien who was afraid of high technology. TerraMates sent me to a mysterious planet where the penalty for having a smartphone was execution!

Another slam dunk by Lisa Lace! This book is chock full of action and sass! And of course lots of steamy deliciousness!

I absolutely love the fact that two people from seemingly different walks of life can come to love each other, and not only that. They can change the course of history together. A beautiful concept, and an overall lovely and exciting story.

The narrators were also spot on. They were very fluid, and told the story with so much passion. The world building was also extremely well described it felt like a place I could actually visit.

I highly recommend this story, and look forward to more. Keep it up Ms. Lace! You are a fabulous storyteller.

Yes, magic exists. Not the backwater voodoo witches practice where Mississippi Deputy Sheriff Margot Saulnier grew up. But the age-old black magic a woman weaves around a man that draws him under her spell. The kind Margot's best friend used to kill her husband...and get away with it.

~This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.~

This was a thoroughly enjoyable listen. The world building was well executed and the characters were quite believable. I enjoyed the smooth transition of the story from the deep south to Scotland, as well as the back and forth between Margot and Charlie.

One thing I didn't really like, though it was very well written, was how long it took Margot to understand her plight. I'm always of the opinion that if all the possible answers were eliminated, then what's left is correct. She annoyed me so much with her constant denial... but then again I guess it wouldn't have been as good a story if she had believed outright. Put in the same position as Margot was at the end, I don't think I would have made the same decision as she did. (Sorry no spoilers)

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. It's good when the author can get the reader/listener so emotionally involved with the story. Very well done indeed.
