One night. No names. No commitment. That was our agreement. But Spencer Lancaster was addictive. And I was high. High off his taste, starved for his kiss, and desperate for his touch. So when he asked me to stay, to enjoy his company for more nights than I knew I should, I wasn't in the right mind to say no. Everything was perfect. A dream come true. But half a world away, there were secrets. Lies. Insecurities. All of the truths that could tear us apart.

So I loved the last 1/4 of the book. I didn’t feel the connection at all in the beginning, but knowing there are two other books for this family I hung in there and I’m glad I did. There were enough unanswered questions that I will likely have to know the the other two brothers stories because I’m a sucker like that. Not a fan of Lia Langola in this book but it might have been the whiny character she voiced more than her performance. Aaron Sherlock represented his character perfect as usual also. Not a bad read.

I'm a special agent on the hunt to find my partner's killer. She's just a girl who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. But I can't bend the rules, even if I know she's innocent. Casey Jones is a natural beauty with curves that won't quit. With her big doe eyes and long legs, she's pure temptation. She's barely old enough to be working in a place that serves alcohol, but I can't stop myself from wanting to make her a woman. My woman. She's in the middle of something bad and too stubborn to see that. All I want to do is protect her.

I am a huge Aaron Sherlock fan, my reason for the purchase, and not even for him could I finish this book. I’m all for taboo stories, but abuse of authority plus a barely adult virgin with a big age gap......just no for me. Too much taboo and too much knowledge for such a sexually innocent heroin for this to be remotely feasible. Just no. Maybe it ends in romance and HEA, which I will admit sometimes happens in stories, but I just can’t find it in me to finish this book at this time.

They sent me away. No time to say good-bye. I didn’t know if I loved her. I didn’t know she was carrying my child. But when I saw her again I knew she still possessed me. I was the college playboy. The rich sh*t with Daddy’s money. Lucie was my childhood friend. One night was all it took - rekindled our friendship... Ignited our lust. Then I messed up. And was gone. Now I’m back, and I’m a better man. The question is will Lucie still believe it? Can we have a second chance? I can see the old spark in her eyes. She shares my longing.... I hurt her all those years ago.

The heroin was a doormat the entire book. The one time she stood up for herself she caved in hours. The hero was so spoiled and so selfish. So, while it was written well, and narration was great; it just wasn’t my cup of tea. Too much wining, irresponsible behavior and self doubt from both POVs. Despite my opinion of this particular story and my first read from this author I will definitely give her another shot. I like her style.

Yesterday, he had it all: a beautiful woman at his side, more money than he knew what to do with, and a real shot at the Oval Office. Today, he's a murderer. Yesterday, she was America's sweetheart: the wholesome first daughter of a beloved former president, a rising star without so much as a whisper of a scandal attached to her name. Today, she's an accomplice.

I really loved. I have only read one other book from this author and it was a little bdsm, so I didn’t know what to expect. Reviewing authors other titles in the audible library, I was skeptical, but I like these narrators, the summary was up my ally, so I gave it a shot. No regrets. It was political, suspenseful, charming, sexy, and had a few twists and turns I wasn’t expecting. The way it was going I thought for sure we were headed for a ...to be continued, but to my delight was wrapped up in a nice HEA bow and some LOL humor. Narration was top notch per usual from these two narrators. I highly recommend.

I've landed in New York City with my resume in one hand and my V-card in the other. The resume? I'll give to any man on the street. The other? Well...I won't settle for anything less than lightning-bolt chemistry, and so far, no one has flipped that switch. Until I meet Barclay Hammond, CEO of the most prestigious publishing house in NYC and the city's most eligible bachelor. He's commanding, charming, gorgeous...and my new boss.

Very cute and sexy story! Can you say “foreplay”. From beginning to end this book was flirty, teasing and fun with many Laugh out loud moments. Very “once upon a time” but you need those every once in a while. My first read from Liv Morris and I am a fan. Narrators...well Aaron Sherlock is my favorite and the reason I purchased the book but as always Melissa Moran delivered a great performance too!

Ian is...just my best friend. We're extremely close, stuck so deep inside a Jim-and-Pam-style friendzone everyone at work assumes we're a couple - that is until one day, word spreads through the teacher's lounge that he's single. Fair game. Suddenly, it's open season on Ian. He should be reveling in all the newfound attention, but to our mutual surprise, the only attention he seems to want is mine. He's turning our formerly innocent nightly chats into X-rated phone calls. Our playful banter sports a new, dangerous edge.

I got out of the Marine Corps to give my daughter a better life. I'm a strong and capable single dad. I got this, right? Not so much. The one thing my daughter wants is the hardest to find - a mom. It's not like they're selling hot intelligent women at Walmart these days, and with the amount of baggage I'm carrying around, I might be out of luck. Yeah, so. We moved from Oahu to Maui. I needed a job, a place to live, and to get us settled. I thought it would be simple, but let's just say...mistakes have been made.

I never expected the day I met the girl of my dreams in the campus coffee shop to change everything. She schooled me about music, saying my popstar background didn’t teach me what I really needed to know. She's become my muse, my inspiration, and my cowriter. Polishing my songs and making them shine. And when a video of me playing one of my new songs goes viral, my life explodes in a second chance at the dream I thought was over six years ago. But if I take this opportunity, will our relationship survive?

So, I like this plot line but there were parts that were just over the top technical and it felt more like listening to a lecture than a story. I like the narrators’ voices but they read this like a manual - even the sexy parts, so I was not at all disappointed when the story ended. To find it was “to be continued”, well, I groaned. This story, with these narrators has so much potential. These narrators have great voices, especially considering the emotions each narrator shows when they speak for the other in their POV, just very little emotion when they speak their thoughts, which is the majority of the book. I want to know how it ends so I’ll listen to the sample when it comes out and hope they step up the directing on book 2.

Molly secretly fell for Sean Wyse III, heir to the Wyse Hotel chain, more than a decade ago. Working three jobs and with only a high school degree, Molly Brandt doesn't have the kind of pedigree Sean's been looking for in a wife since the time they met. They're best friends, and that's enough for her, at least until Sean decides to move into her apartment for a few months. It's only a matter of time before Sean realizes there's more than friendship behind Molly's smiles and that maybe he wants a different life than the one he had planned.

Story is very enjoyable and a bit different than its precessions and not what I was expecting. Kudos to the narrator for this entire series so far, but especially kudos to the narrators and director! I was most most impressed with Tad Branson’s performance. There is a chapter that I read over and over just to hear what felt like honest emotion! Seraphine Valentine and Ted Branson compliment each other better than any others duo. Worth the credit!!

Great Narration- Great story, and although you might pick up on the bread crumbs Mia Sheridan leaves, like me, you’ll likely not guess the twist. Introduced to Sheridan through the Romance Package, I’m a fan - now at 4-0 for books I have enjoyed. Looking forward to more!
