Easton Crawford put his modeling career before his marriage until it was ending in divorce. Years later, he is finally learning how to be the father his daughter needs him to be. He's not looking for someone to step into the mother role - just nightly casual hook-ups. When his best friend convinces him that a good way to meet single women is to go on a singles cruise, he finds more than just a one-night stand.

I was drawn in to this story! I loved single dad and bad boy stories, this is the best of both worlds. I like that he was struggling with what ti do because he was putting his daughter first which he should, but then he also wanted to be there for the woman he liked/loved. Those are real struggles. Narrators were amazing.

We were best friends since as early as I could remember. We grew up together. We were next door neighbors. We shared each other's deepest secrets. When I was 13, we made a pact: if we were still single by the time we were 30, we'd marry each other. Today was my 30th birthday. I was single. I knew he was single, too. But we were no longer best friends, and a part of me knew that he hated me.

How do you heal from your past when you're still trapped within it? I lost myself the night of the party. Just like that, my innocence and my sanity were torn away. I would like to say that time heals all wounds, but it doesn't. And I would like to say that falling in love is what rescued me, but it wasn't. Nobody told me what to expect in the coming days and weeks and months after conceiving a rapist's child. Years later, my wounds are still just as fresh as the night they were made.

Chloe Parker has just been uprooted to a tiny American compound in Saudi Arabia. You’d think after 14 years of being an Air Force brat, she’d be used to being the new kid, but it still sucks. At least until she meets charming, charismatic Alex and falls for him hard. But Alex is a year older and is heading off to boarding school in Switzerland. Chloe won’t see him again for nine months, and it’s breaking her heart. She doesn’t even know if Alex likes her back until he gifts her his private binder of hand-written stories and song lyrics to remember him by.

This is a book that I would have never chosen to listen to on my own. But I am certainly glad I did. It was so good, I loved it. Alex's story, everything he has been through. wow I couldn't even imagine! Chloe is so strong and so good for Alex. But even her bold strength wasn't quite enough to keep his demons away. This story was heartbreaking and emotional, but also so very good and happy. I would definitely recommend it!.

Thanks to audiobook obsession for giving me the opportunity to review it.

When ballet dancer Clara Campbell arrives in New Orleans, lonely and homesick, she is immediately captivated by the story of Windisle Plantation and the tragic tale that is said to have transpired beyond its gate. Legend has it that it is abandoned by all living souls, but to Clara’s great surprise, it is not a ghost she hears through the stone wall surrounding the property, but a flesh and blood man: a scarred stranger with a pain deeper and darker than the churning waters of the Mississippi river that flows beside his self-imposed prison.

I wish I could give this amazing story more than 5 stars!

I was pulled in from the start. An amazing story of love, hurt, tragedy, guilt, and so much more. A story that takes place in the past and in the present. Jonah and Clara meet by chance at the wishing wall because of an old legend tale from long ago. Through tragedy and thoughts of low self worth, hope and love blossoms.

I am trying so hard to write a review that gives this story the praise it deserves; without giving away any spoilers. That is so hard. So I will just say that I loved this story so much. It is a MUST READ/LISTEN TO in my opinion.

Narrators Zachary Webber and Virginia Rose did a superb job giving life to this amazing story. Emotion in all the right spots.

Laya is called the Princess, but in fact, she’s nothing but a slave to her husband and cult leader Andros. Abused and suppressed, she has no hope of escape until three new recruits enter her life. They quickly take to living in the compound, but Laya can’t help feeling that they’re different. That they might not believe in what they have to do for Andros. That they aren’t as cold and cruel as him.

I crawled into Ryan Jensen’s bed that first night by accident. I barely knew him. I thought it was his sister’s bed - her room. It took seconds to realize my error, and I should've left... I didn’t. I didn’t jump out. I didn’t get embarrassed. I relaxed. And that night, in that moment, it was the only thing I craved. I asked to stay. He let me, and I slept. The truth? I never wanted to leave his bed. If I could've stayed forever, I would have. He became my sanctuary. Because - four hours earlier - my twin sister killed herself.

Another book by Dylan Allen that I love! The first of her books that I have listened to on audio. It was amazing! It's more than just a romance. This book turned a light on to something I've never thought much of before. Things that we do now that we take for granted. It is an amazing book that I would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone. The narration is great and done with such feeling and emotion.

My name is Sevin. Homeschooled and sheltered by my ultra-religious family, I was always taught that lust was a sin. Elle was the girl who'd been carefully chosen for me. After a long-distance courtship, I'd be moving into her family's guest house so that we could get to know each other in the months before the wedding. Boundaries were set: no inappropriate touching, no kissing, no sex before marriage. I'd accepted those rules and my fate - until I met the one I wanted to sin with.

The first time I met Jade Jameson, I lost my words and accidentally dropped a beer bottle, smashing it to the ground. The Broadway star sister of my brother's wife had paid us a surprise visit on Christmas. Quite simply, she was the most beautiful woman I'd ever seen; I was mesmerized. I'd made a fool of myself, and to make matters worse, my girlfriend was standing right there when it happened. Jade went back to New York, and we didn't cross paths again for a year - until one night when a Facebook notification lit up my screen, setting off a chain of events that would change my life.
