I'm a freak, a misfit, an odd end. Abandoned and unloved. But my happiness is so close I can taste it. Until he shows up. Gorgeous, expensive, and all man. Sad brown eyes and a brilliant smile. And he wants me to go with him. His intentions are hidden. His motives are unclear. Yet I leave with him because there's no happiness here. What he promises feels too good to be true.... A castle. A fortune. And horses, too. It's too easy. Nothing in my life has ever been easy. What's the catch? There's always a catch.

I want to thank K. Webster for this amazing story. It really touched my heart on a personal level. Having a child with autism myself, I was able to really connect with the characters. It made my heart happy to know that Torin got a happily ever after even though it wasn't in the conventional way that others get theirs. loved Torin, Casey, and Tyler!!!! I absolutely loved this book and the narrators did an amazing job giving voice to the story. I already want to listen to it again.

At fifteen I fell in love. His name was Jake Stephens and he took the abandoned, lonely girl I had been and made me whole. His love was a pure and unconditional love that made every day better than the last; a fairy tale of my very own. But this story isn't about Jake. It's about Abel Madden; the man I meet after the fairy tale goes to hell. A cocky, arrogant man who says what he wants, does as he pleases, and makes no excuses for it. He irritates me--downright pisses me off at times--but he also brings me back to life.

Wow, just wow!!! This book was frickin amazing. My heart shattered for Sydney. Then she still followed her dream and that showed her strength and courage. Then comes Abel. I don't even know what to say about him except, where can I get one?!? Ha. I love all of L.A. Fiore's books, but this one brought out all the feels for me. I was ugly crying, laughing, then my heart felt so full for them. The narrators did an amazing job. I love listening to Aaron Shedlock and Tracy Marks. They capture everything spot on!. Everyone should listen to or read Collecting the Pieces!!!

How do I come up with the words to give this audiobook the credit it deserves!! It was AMAZING!! Elena Wolfe did such an amazing job with the narration. She was able to capture each emotion right on point. This is my favorite series and I have read it many times, but there is something totally different about listening to it!! Those sexy hot scenes were fricking HAWT!! And I could feel it when they were mad, sad, happy, etc...
I didn't want it to end! I can't wait for book 4 to come out on audio!! thank you Lilly Wilde for giving us such an amazing series that touches my heart each and every time i read/listen! Thank you Elena Wolfe for your phenomenal voice!!

I went searching for trouble and I found it. I just didn’t expect to find it in the form of Cillian Gallagher. The gorgeously tatted lead singer and guitarist of Wild Irish, Cillian is everything I’ve always tried to stay away from. He’s wild and dangerous. And exactly what I need to cross off number four on my bucket list. Kiss a complete stranger. It should have been that simple. But I wasn't prepared for the scorching heat that would ignite a passion, leaving us both gasping for air.

I had already read Wild Irish, so getting to listen to the Audiobook version was a treat! Kyle Maraglio did an amazing job capturing the emotion of each character just right! You just get something different out of the story when you are able to listen and hear different accents that you could imagine the characters having. C.M. Seabrook is an amazing author and I have really enjoyed each and every one of her books. I look forward to listening to Tempting Irish (Owen's story) on audiobook if it comes out!!

As one of the top paid defense-men in the NHL, my life has been a revolving door of beautiful women and no-strings-attached sex. Until Brynne. It was only supposed to be a one-night-fling. Hell, it wasn't even supposed to be that. I knew the cardinal rule. Don't touch the coach's daughter. And for years, I kept my hands to myself. It wasn't difficult considering Brynne Jacobs hates my guts.

Another great book by C.M. Seabrook and is amazing in audiobook!

Evelyn Marcail does an amazing job with the narration. She hits the different voice changes very well. you are able to distinguish whenever it is someone different speaking. Great job!

A little about the story: Brynne is a girl who is still angry and hurting over her brother's death. She needs someone to blame, so that someone is her brother's best friend Kane. Kane is a hockey player. He has had his eyes on his best friend's sister forever, only problem is She Hates Him! Kane knows things about her brother than she doesn't know. Brynne spent one night with him in a moment of weakness. About a year later they run in to each other and Kane decides he wants her no matter what. I will leave it at that because I don't want to give out any spoilers.

Their chemistry is popping like fireworks! I would definitely recommend resding this book. I loved it!

When I opened my eyes, I was in a cell, my body covered in bruises. Not a jail. I'd been kidnapped and imprisoned. I wasn't alone. I shared the cell with Garin Woods, the man I'd loved since I was a kid. The man I couldn't be with because of the secret. A man who would kill me if he found out what that secret was. Someone wanted to torture me. Torture us. One of us deserved it. It wasn't Garin.

I really didn't know what to expect when starting this audiobook. I had heard it was dark and I wanted to give it a try. Wow!!! It was so good. Had cringeworthy moments and also some intense sexual moments. The relationship that Kyle and Garin was very charges. I love how, with all the darkness, there was still a HEA. Aaron Shedlock was amazing at the narration of this audiobook. The way he was able to make you feel everything they were going through perfectly by changing the tones of his voice was great. Hope to hear him more in other audiobooks! Can't wait to start some of Marni Mann's other books!

Without Merit is the first Colleen Hoover book I have read, well not read but listened to. I absolutely loved it! It brought out all the emotions. I could feel them right along with all the characters in the book. I really loved how it showed that Everyone has their own problems, and although it may seem like someone else's issue is a lot bigger than yours..that is not true. I can't even put in to words what I am feeling or trying to say. so I will just say AMAZING BOOK! I can't wait to read some of her others. Also, Candace Thaxton did an amazing job narrating. She portrayed each character's emotion spot on.

Promises are lies dressed up for the party. Secrets poison the fairest of fairy tales. Lies stain the purest of loves. I've paid the ultimate price for my choices. The tendrils of those sins bind me to my past. The remnants of my love hold me captive. Then he walks into my life, and makes me believe in second chances. He awakens feelings in me I know I shouldn't have. I yearn for a future without guilt. With him, I dream of a love untainted. Regret is a far-reaching emotion. It barrels through time like a blazing comet, and its path isn't always straight.

they just keep getting better. Storms Over Secrets was such a strong story. What all Celia went through broke my heart. That is so much more than any person should have to go through, esoecially alone. I totally fell in love with Cain. He is a good country man. He is funny also, so what a bonus!! And talk about a twist that I totally didn't see about mid book. This audiobook is great, the narrators were amazing. I would say this is a must read/listen!!
