My name is Melody Greene, and I have a confession to make. I slept with my student, a senior in high school. Multiple times. I had multiple orgasms. In multiple positions. I slept with my student and I enjoyed it. I slept with my student and I'd do it all over again if I could turn back time. My name is Melody Greene, and I got kicked out of my position as a teacher and did my walk of shame a la Cersei Lannister from the principal's office, minutes after said principal threatened to call the cops on me.

I only wish this book was longer. I would have also liked to have gotten to read from Jaime's pov. But other than that I really enjoyed this student/teacher romance. It was sexy and forbidden and I never wanted it to end. Even though this book was from Melody's pov, I felt it was all about Jaime. I liked seeing how was with Melody and how much he wanted her. Let's be real when I say Melody had no real apprehension to starting anything with Jaime, it took almost no effort for him to talk her into their relationship. I have to say that I loved every minute of it. I do really like Tracey Marks. She is so great to listen to. She was great as Melody.

Sometimes appearances deceive. Take me, for instance. I look like a respectable doctor with his shit together, but the rural Montana mental hospital I work at is actually a sanctuary from my demons. At just 35 years old, I've already failed on an epic scale. Treating patients at Hawthorne Hill is part of my atonement. I've found peace when a new patient turns me inside out. Allison Cole is a beautiful, haunted survivor who fell into silence after witnessing a murder. But even without words, I'm drawn to her.

I ended up enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. The story was very interesting and I liked both of the main characters. I thought this was going to be a typical forbidden romance between a doctor and his patient. But it is so much more than that. Daniel and Allison form a nice relationship while she's being admitted to a mental hospital. Even though she refuses to talk she forms a relationship with Daniel that needed no words. He understood her in way no one else could despite his growing attraction for her. Daniel is very good at his job and really cares about his patients, Allison included.The suspense surrounding the murder of Allison's sister and the fact that people keep trying to get her to talk made the story more interesting. Its clear Allison is in danger and as her trust with Daniel grows we learn all the secrets Allison has been holding in.

Lee Samuels and Kirsen Leigh were good. I liked listening to them and had it not been for their narrating I might have given up on this book too early. I'm so glad I stuck with this book and the narrators enhanced the reading experience.

Graham Russell and I weren't made for one another. I was driven by emotion; he was apathetic. I dreamed while he lived in nightmares. I cried when he had no tears to shed. Despite his frozen heart and my readiness to run, we sometimes shared seconds. Seconds when our eyes locked and we saw each other's secrets. Seconds when his lips tasted my fears and I breathed in his pains. Seconds when we both imagined what it would be like to love one another.

The Gravity of Us is perfection. I honestly don't know how Brittainy Cherry does it. She writes such beautiful stories and this one is no exception. I love the way she tackles this romance and it was so beautiful and sweet. My heart completely melted while reading this book.

Graham and Lucy were wonderful characters that I loved right away. Lucy is such a free spirit who loves hard and is completely loyal to those she loves. The love she feels for her sisters was one of the things I really loved about her. The way she changed Graham and showed him what true love was gutted me. Graham had a terrible childhood and it is clear how much its scarred him. He is very broody, but he slowly starts to change when Lucy comes into his life. The love they feel for one another was pure and they fell so hard before either of them realized it. The Gravity of Us was soo good.

I also absolutely loved the narrating. They were wonderful to listen to and I really felt all the emotion in this book. Erin and Brian truly emulated Graham and Lucy. I got all the feels listening to this audiobook and they definitely did this authors amazing writing and story true justice. Loved it.

The entire world is on the brink of finding out nightmares are real. An army of demons known as the Noctis is growing in strength. They control all manner of foul beasts and if not stopped soon, cities will burn, lives will end, and hope will be lost. The only thing standing in the way are the Journeymen; humans and supernatural beings united against the darkness. There is one known amongst men and the supernatural alike that you don't mess with. Unless it's on his terms.

This was a great start to this series. It was exciting, fun, and just all around awesome. Its been a while since I've dived into a paranormal book and Homeward Bound was just what I needed. It is full of mystery and I loved the way the story unfolded. I can tell that I am going to be so addicted to this series dying to know what will happen next. The Journeymen are such an interesting group. This one covered the Journeyman Gage. It was great seeing how feared he is by the Noctis and how lethal he is. I also liked seeing things from the Notis pov and see how sinister things are for the villains in the story. Each chapter only intrigues me more. Excellent writing and story from Golden. Add on to that the fact that Wen Ross narrated this book and it was top notch. Wen Ross is a favorite narrator of mine and Wen made listening to this amazing book that much more enjoyable. Ekkk I just love Gage and can't wait to listen to the rest of the books in this series.

Rule Number 1: Do Not Sleep with Clients. I was the best agent in the industry. More ruthless and cutthroat than any arrogant bastard you'd ever met. The top actors in Hollywood came to me to get signed. When I saw James Ryne, America's Sweetheart, standing across the bar, I wanted her body like I'd never wanted anything before. I broke rule number one. But, after all, I was a man. No one had ever mistaken me for a saint.

I really wanted to love this one. I enjoyed the Unblocked Collection and love Marni Mann's writing, but I just didn't love this one. I didn't like the story right away and I never really warmed up to it as I kept reading. I couldn't connect to the characters at all and I felt no connection between them either. I figured out the ending pretty quickly and didn't leave much to be desired between James and Brett.The narration was good for the most part. I liked both narrators well enough. It was their narration that kept me listening even though I wasn't all that invested in the story.

Raven Elliot blasts into town like a wrecking ball - striking and devastating. With a few simple words, my reliable routine crumbles to dust. "Is this seat taken?" I could close my eyes and let her voice wrap around me like a lover's caress. But this isn't that type of story. And I'm sure as hell not that kind of man. She hovers in my space, batting her lashes and smiling shyly. The glimmer in her sapphire eyes is a promise of peace. But I'm not falling for it. And Raven doesn't take the hint.

I was hopeful for this book, especially with it being a sort of enemies to lovers type read, but I don't think it hit its mark. Gent was alright. I liked the characters well enough, I just had a hard time with their relationship. Maybe it wasn't believable enough or I didn't feel as connected to them as I would have liked to, but I just couldn't get into the story all that much. Its your typical broody, asshole local boy who sleeps with tons of women and he happens to meet the sweet new girl in town and she can't help but want him. Gent had potential, it just didn't do it for me.

The narration was good. I liked them well enough. It have been because I couldn't get all that into the story, but I would definitely like to listen to them narrate other books.

Moving to River’s Edge was supposed to be a fresh start. Away from chaos. Away from bad influences and worse relationships. All I wanted was to give my little brother more of a chance than I ever had. It should’ve been simple. I didn’t count on my transgressions following me. And I definitely didn’t count on meeting Dare. Tall, tortured, and tattooed. A Lost Boy through and through. Falling for someone like him was asking for heartache. But I was a sucker for punishment.

I have been having a hard time finding a book by this author that I really enjoy. I am happy to say that Bad Intentions has hit its mark and I loved the two main characters Dare and Logan. The story was really good and both characters have some serious baggage. Logan was a great character. I loved how much she cared about her brother and did everything in her power to protect and provide for him. They never had a lot, but she never let it stop her. Plus, Logan's brother was so awesome. I loved him a lot despite how troubled he seemed every now and then. He is a good kid. Dare was so broody at first, but holy hell I fell hard for this man. I loved how protective he was of Logan and all the things he did for her and her brother. The romance and chemistry between him and Logan was perfection.

I loved Lance Greenfield voicing Dare. His voice was so sexy and fit Dare perfectly. I look forward to listening to more books that Lance narrates. I also liked Jennifer Stark as Logan. Bad Intentions is a a good book and both these narrators do a wonderful job bringing these characters to life.

My only issues with this book was that I felt that it ended a little abruptly. Dare's past is kinda thrown in at the end and then the book is over. It gets resolved so suddenly like it was an afterthought instead of being something that constantly troubled him and worked through. Logan's baggage is the main focus and while there were a lot of things messed up in her life they all kinda faded into the background. I kinda felt like I needed more closure between her and her dad and mother. There's only one thing that gets wrapped up.

All in all I really liked this book. I felt the romance and the story. The characters were all great and lovable. Bad Intentions is a definite winner in my opinion.

Célian Laurent. Manhattan royalty. Notorious playboy. Heir to a media empire...and my new boss. I could have impressed him, if not for last month's unforgettable one-night stand. I left it with more than orgasms and a pleasant memory - namely, his wallet. Now he's staring me down like I'm the dirt under his Italian loafers, and I'm supposed to take it. But the thing about being Judith "Jude" Humphry is I have nothing to lose. Brooklyn girl. Infamously quirky. Heir to a stack of medical bills and a tattered couch.

This one gets a very hard 4 stars since I'm still not really sure how I feel about this book. This was a fun read that I enjoyed. Shen has a knack for writing some serious jerks and Celian is no exception. Dirty Headlines was such an easy book to read and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Let me start by saying that I like the fact that this author makes her hero's hold on to that jerky behavior. Most books you read about a guy who is perceived as a jerk, normally let go of that persona within moments of meeting the heroine. Celian had to work to let go of his anger, guilt, and pain that caused him to be so cold. While he tried to not be that way to Jude, it often slipped and she was none too happy about it. I also liked the way he was with Jude's father. Even though he was a jerk, I sometimes liked his cold, detached attitude when it came to most people in this book. The scenes between Celian and Jude were very sexy and I swooned at how much attention he paid to her. He really got to know her and I liked that about him.

I really liked Jacob Morgan and Grace Grant. They both have great voices and I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this audiobook. It was fun and sexy. Truly enjoyable.

So overall I really enjoyed reading Dirty Headlines. Even if I don't love the book I still like reading books this author writes.

There were things I really liked about this audiobook. First being that I really loved listening to Kai and Wen narrate this book. They are a always so amazing together. They are a huge favorite of mine and they did a fantastic job narrating this one. I did like Kai and Rhyson, our two main characters. They are both a bit messed up by things in their past and it leaks into the relationship they try to have with one another.

This book is just as much about the music as their relationship. Kai is both an amazing dancer and singer determined to make it on her own. She constantly refuses the help of Rhyson to make things easier for her and wants to know that when she does breakout in the industry it will be on her own talents and not who she's knows. But for Rhyson, it is hard for him to let Kai do it on her own because he wants to protect and help her. A lot times I think he wants to help her from being taken advantage of, but Kair leaps at the chance whenever anyone shows interest doing business with her. This causes a lot of tension between Kai and Rhyson. Yet, there is no denying how much they each care for one another and making they are there support the other through a lot of the difficult times that arise.

My Soul to Keep is a good book. I thought it was ok because there were things that really annoyed me about this book. Bristol, Rhyson's sister being a big one too. But if you want to go ahead and give this book a try, I highly recommend the audiobok because the narrators make this a great book to listen to.

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again. After 15 years together, he walked away from me, and into the arms of another. I didn’t know how to cope. I didn’t know my worth. I didn’t know how to exist without him by my side. All I wanted was for him to come back to me. Then, Jackson Emery appeared. He was supposed to be a distraction for my mind. A summer fling. A confidence boost to my bruised heart. We were perfect for one another, because we both knew we wouldn’t last. Jackson didn’t believe in commitment, and I no longer believed in love.

Wow!!!!

Disgrace stole my heart. I loved this book. It gave me so many good feels while it made me want to punch anyone who hurt the heroine. Brittainy Cherry continues to blow my mind with her amazing writing and heartfelt stories. Jackson and Grace were such beautifully broken characters who healed one another. I loved the way they fought for the each other. Just know this book is amazing and I floating on cloud nine after reading this book.

I'm not sure I can read any book by this author ever again. All the audiobooks I have listened to of her books has been so amazing. Amanda Cobb and James Cavenaugh are perfection. I loved their southern drawl and the emotion that poured out of their voices. James was perfect as Jackson with his gritty accent with a hardness that personified Jackson's personality. I seriously loved them narrating this book. Soooo amazing. Well worth the listen.
