It was easy to call us forbidden and harder to call us soul mates. Yet I believed we were both. Forbidden soul mates. When I arrived in Edgewood, Wisconsin, I didn't plan to find him. I didn't plan to stumble into Joe's bar and have Daniel's music stir up my emotions. I had no clue that his voice would make my hurts forget their own sorrow. I had no idea that my happiness would remember its own bliss.

I have sort of mixed feelings about this book. It started off really good and I got into the story really fast. Loving Mr. Daniels is a very emotional for both our main characters as they have both suffered loss and are learning to move on and live again. I really loved Daniels character and he was really great for Ashlyn. I liked Ashlyn for the most part and I loved seeing her fight through her grief and anger and fall in love with Daniel. The letters and bucket list her sister left for her was the one thing I loved the most about this book. It was bittersweet and melted my heart. The relationship between Ashlyn and Daniel takes a turn when she finds out he is her teacher. So this sad story also turned into something forbidden. But I really wanted them to be together. I loved all of their stolen moments together.

What did annoy me about this book was that this student/teacher romance took the typical turn. Ashlyn falls apart all the time, especially because she gets frustrated that Daniel and her can't be openly affectionate with each other. This made Ashlyn act very childish in their relationship since she didn't understand the seriousness of how much they shouldn't be together. Other than that I really enjoyed this book.

I really liked both the narrators. This is my first time listening to both of them and I really enjoyed them voicing Ashlyn and Daniel. Well, especially Daniel because I swear I fell in love with his character right away. They did a beautiful job voicing this emotional and beautiful book.

I met Bianca in an elevator. She was on her way to interview me when we got stuck. The beautiful raven-haired reporter assumed I was a delivery guy because of the way I was dressed. She had no clue I was really Dex Truitt, the wealthy, successful businessman she'd dubbed "Mister Moneybags" - her afternoon appointment. Bianca told me how much she hated Dex's type - snobby, over-educated, silver-spooned men who didn't appreciate the simple things in life.

Meh! This one was alright. I did enjoy listening this book and it kept my interest, but after I finished it I thought that the story was alright. There is quite a bit that happens with these two main characters. Maybe a little too much that was meant to cause friction in their relationship.

The narration was good. I like Sebastian York and Andi Arnt. You can never go wrong when their narrating your books. They are always very enjoyable to listen to.

I never expected to watch Sophie walk away. She was mine. I would own her. She just didn't know it yet. New goal: Seal the deal and rock her world so thoroughly she would never want to leave again. Highly sexual and emotionally charged, Filthy Beautiful Love is the provocative conclusion to Filthy Beautiful Lies.

I wanted to like this book. But I found it to be pointless to listen to. I was annoyed with Sophie's character who continued to be jealous of every woman in Colton's life. It got played out real fast. Not to mention the fact that the first book ended with a big cliffhanger and the issue of Colton still being married was quickly overlooked and taken care of. Basically becoming completely unnecessary to this couple's relationship. There was also another unnecessary thing that happens towards the end that I thought was just messed up and didn't so anything for the story or relationship. I was just completely disappointed.

Had it not been for the amazingness that is Ava Erikson who I am completely in love with, I probably wouldn't have finished this book. The narrator always gets me lost in a book, even ones it appears I am not enjoying. I just get so long in her narrating. She is always amazing and one of my favorites. I just wish that there was a male narrator for this book because the pov would switch to Colton and I would get confused since I was still obviously listening to a female voice.

Seeing the man that nearly broke her was absolutely not what she had hoped to find in Prescott, Montana. Nick hasn't seen his Emmy in nine years, but that doesn't mean he's forgotten a thing about the woman he loves. After just one blissful night as man and wife, he gave her up, sacrificing his own happiness to keep her safe.

Oh how I wanted to like this book, but I just didnt enjoy it all that much. The relationship was not believable at all. Nick and Emmy get married within like 5 hours of knowing each other and are so in love. Even after the 9 years that they've gone without seeing each other they're still completely in love. I didn't buy it. There was just too much going on as well and I felt the drama always came out of left field just to make the story interesting.

If it honestly wasn't for my faves Joe Arden and Ava Erikson being the amazing narrators that they are, I would not have finished this book. I really want to like this series, I really do, but The Clover Chaorl just didnt do it for me.

I have no idea why she auctioned off her virginity for a cool mill. Regardless, I'm now the proud new owner of a perfectly intact hymen. A lot of good that will do me. I have certain tastes, certain sexual proclivities. My cock is a bit more discriminatory than most. And training a virgin takes finesse and patience - both of which I lack. Sophie Evans has been backed into a corner.

I was so excited going into this book. The beginning was really good and I thought I was going to love this book. Ava Erikson is one 9f my favorite narrators and I was so swept up by her amazing voice. She always gets me so into the story and the characters. Once I started this book I didn't stop until it was over.

Sophie sells herself at an auction to raise the money needed for her sisters cancer treatment. She is bought by the intriguing Colton and doesn't know what to expect other thelan the fact that he will take her virginity. The entire beginning of this book really good. But at some point I felt that Sophie was falling for Colton way to fast, especially since she's only supposed to be with him for a certain amount of time. She was almost expecting them to be like a couple, got jealous of other women in his life like his assistant, and was all up in his personal life asking a bunch of questions.

I would have preferred a relationship to form out of the blue for these two. It would have been nice if this was more of a slow burn and the attraction slowly built up. For Sophie to be a virgin she was dying for him to have sex with her and got all bratty when he refused to have sex with her. She even suspected that he was sleeping with other women which equated to him cheating on her.

This story was very promising and could have been executed differently. The cliffhanger ending was expected and not all that surprising. Filthy Bearuiful Lies had a lot of potential that fell flat in some ways, but is a more enjoyable read of this author's in my opinion.

The story was just alright. I didn't care for it that much. It's a definite instalove kind of story. After a citygirl and mountain man spend a night together their all in love and wanting to spend the rest of their lives together. If you want something short, sexy, and sweet then I'd suggest this one to you. But it didn't really so it for me. I really love listening to Logan McAllister l, he is really great. I liked him as Everette. But I didn't like that he was narrating the female chapters. It made e confused as the who's pov I was listening to and his voice never changed to try to speak with a female tone, so that threw me off. I think this book definitely needed a female narrator as well.

This book turned out to be more interesting than I expected. The Warden's are very intriguing and it was awesome that they hunt down creatures. So while it's no shocker that this book features a Wendigo, it was very exciting to read about one.

Wendigo Fever is about Errol who is a Warden. He goes searching for his brother Tom, who went missing. In his search for Tom he discovers a Wendigo and soon it is stalking them. Errol must use all the training he got from his brother and his knowledge of this deadly monster to survive. It was great seeing how the Wendigo stalked them and even getting chapters in its POV, which was crazy creepy and awesome at the same time.

I really liked Mikael Naramore. This is the first book I've listened to him narrate and I really enjoyed his voice. He did a great job as Errol and the Wendigo. It made this book that much better to listen to.

Wendigo Fever was definitely an interesting book that took me no time to finish. I really liked it and am looking forward to reading more books in this series. It's definitely different from anything I've read and was very fun.

Here's what you need to know about me - I'm well-off, well-hung, and quick with a joke. Women like a guy who makes them laugh - and I don't mean at the size of his you-know-what. No, they want their funny with a side of huge, not to mention loyal. I've got all that plus a big bank account, thanks to my booming construction business. Yup. I know how to use all my tools. Enter Natalie. Hot, sexy, smart, and my new assistant. Which makes her totally off limits...Hey, I'm a good guy. Really.

I liked Well Hung way more than I thought I would. It was funny and very cute. I liked Wyatt and Natalie a lot. They were perfect for each other. Their relationship was very easy since Natalie works for Wyatt and things are very casual and fun between them. Well Hung is exactly what you would expect from a Lauren Blakely novel and you will truly enjoy it.

I have yet to listen to a book by Sebastian York I didn't like and he is always great narrating these sexy men Lauren Blakely creates. His voice is so fun and sultry and I really can't get enough of him narrating all of Lauren's books.

I kinda liked this book. I didn't dislike it and I didn't exactly love it. Its your typical rich girl stumbles upon a small town and falls for the hottest guy in town. Charlotte made a lot of assumptions about the people in the town, but got mad when people made correct assumptions about her. She tried to act like she wasn't a spoiled rich girl when that's exactly what she was. I never really warmed up to her. I did like Luke and he set Charlotte straight. Of course they start a romance over the span of a week. Their relationship is mostly sexual and they never talk about anything that really matters or got to know each other really well. I also didn't like the fact that Charlotte wanted Luke to pretty much ask/beg for her to stay, but because he didn't, she left. That was super dumb and ridiculous and made me want to slap both of these characters.

So this book was ok. I'm not a big fan of this storyline in any book so I was probably turned off a bit right away. This book isn't all that long, so I shouldn't have expected all that much from the relationship. Sexy Stranger is just alright.

Wow! This was really not what I was expecting. This was a very quick and easy read that I thoroughly enjoyed. The narration was on point. I really enjoyed listening to Ava Erikson. She did a wonderful job narrating this story. I really liked the characters and how their friendship ended up turning into something more. Even though you know their going to eventually hookup, it was so gratifying when it finally happens.

my only issues was that there wasn't enough buildup with the characters to them finally getting together. I didn't think some things made sense for the characters.
