I really enjoyed this audio. My daughter and I met this author at her book launch in NYC and I really enjoy reading and discussing some of the books my kids read with them. When I heard it was along the lines of Gossip Girl I was sold.

Twists, turns, and OMG I was left wanting so many more answers. I had pick my favorites along the way, was rooting for who I wanted to die too.. Made it more fun reading guessing who it was going to be. I made 2 guess when I had about 25% left of who I really wanted and who it was probably going to be and why. I tucked it away in a envelope for my daughter to read and pick her guess when she was almost done reading. We were both wrong.

So excited for book 2 to come out. Happy Reading

I loved listening to this audio version of Wasted Lust after reading the story back when it released in June 2015. So may little details about Sasha and even Jax I had forgotten. Sasha is one of my most loved characters JA Huss has created.

Ava Erickson does a great job of being twenty something college student Sasha Aston.

Never Never, a novella series. Book one of three. Best friends since they could walk. In love since the age of 14. Complete strangers since this morning. He'll do anything to remember. She'll do anything to forget. This novella is recommended for people age 16+ due to mild language and sexual content.

Would you consider the audio edition of Never Never: Part One to be better than the print version?

I enjoy audio books over books sometimes because they really show you the characters differently than how you may read them to be.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked this story because it's different than most books I read. The characters unsure of themselves, each other and trying to discover who they are makes for a very interesting storyline.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Step into Merc's story and see why he turned into the assassin he is.

In the era of pay phones, groupies, and party pills, there were three of us. Strat. A rock god who walked on air. Indy. A handsome musician smart enough to live through stardom. Me, a girl with everything to lose and nothing she wanted to keep. I loved them both. They say three's a crowd, but maybe I liked crowds, until the one thing I wanted to keep was stolen out of my arms. I left that world, straightened up, went to law school. I was fine until Indy walked back into my life to remind me of what I'd lost.

What did you love best about Secret Sins?

Mind blowing does not describe Cin’s story or you may know her Margie Drazen very well. More secrets behind the Drazen family walls discovered. OMG I started having my suspicions early on but you really just don’t think anyone can be that cruel but oh they can be down right cold.
Margie was one hell of a smart determined teenager as CD has shown us. She has grown into an amazing hard working woman.
I loved this book knowing it’s a standalone I’m still hoping we get more of Margie’s story. I’m routing for the truth to come out.

Audie Award, Multi-Voiced Performance, 2016. The year is 2575, and two rival mega-corporations are at war over a planet that's little more than an ice-covered speck at the edge of the universe. Too bad nobody thought to warn the people living on it. With enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra - who are barely even talking to each other - are forced to fight their way onto one of the evacuating fleet, with an enemy warship in hot pursuit.

this audio was the best I've ever listened to and I love/am addicted to audio books.

Sci-fi is not my first choice when picking out a book whether kindle, paperback, or audio. Romance/erotica is but I heard such great things about this book and the audio I needed to find out for myself.

Katie is unbelievably kick ass. I love a leader character who has been put through the ringer and when you think how can't possibly take anymore... They come out fighting so much harder.

This story was a bit twisted, sad at times, funny, and full of love even from the most unexpected place.

Hope you love it as much as my kids and I did.
Happy Reading :)

Lies and luck; they'll both get you in the end. There's a new twist on an old prophecy, and this one brings the end of days. Junco must make a choice - human or avian? Only one race will survive. Lucan has secrets, and the lies are flowing like a mountain river during spring thaw. But he needs Junco to cooperate just a little bit longer or it all falls apart.

My name is Troy Babilonia, but I'm best known as Babu, a renowned literary critic with my own online column. I'm followed by thousands! I'm a living god in the literary world. I have no filter, and for that my flock of humble followers are forever grateful. If it weren't for me, they wouldn't know what to read. I have zero tolerance for weak-minded attention seekers, nor do I have respect for the self-proclaimed geniuses of the indie world. My advice to all indie authors is to never break the cardinal rule in this cutthroat business. Ever.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Black Balled?

OMG! The elevator scene was my most memorable moment. 2 man 1 woman. Panic. Erotic. Lust

Battered, barefoot, and huddled under a bookstore awning in the pouring rain, Blue only knows one thing. After 15 months of captivity, finally she is free. Self-made millionaires JD and Ark are not out to save anyone when they stumble upon a wet and shivering girl one early Sunday morning. But when you sell sex for a living and salvation rings your bell, you answer the call. After years of searching, love lifts the veil of darkness, and three people - with three very big secrets - find themselves bound together.

Would you consider the audio edition of Three, Two, One (321) to be better than the print version?

The audio is pretty sexy hearing all the sexiness between Ark, JD, and Blue but I read it first and fell in love with this story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Three, Two, One (321)?

When Ark is photographing JD and Blue on the porch in the rain and he joins them

What about Sebastian York and Ava Erickson ’s performance did you like?

there voices sound just like you think the actual character voices would sound like. They both did a excellent job reading this triangle story

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
