It’s impossible for a one-percenter motorcycle-club member to simply walk away - and no one knows that better than undercover Agent Bram, who’s almost killed for trying. His cover isn’t blown - yet - but it’s only a matter of time. The Heathens won’t be satisfied until he’s dead, so he decides to lay low and heal. But when his younger brother’s disappearance throws a wrench into his plan, Bram ends up in Shades Run, a town ruled by the notorious Havoc MC.

The story is of two men, Sweet, the president of Havoc MC, he is a bad boy, pretty much secure in his own skin, only one frailty his growing attraction for Bram, a man who showed up on there door steps looking for his brother Linc. Sweet, knows Bram is there for his brother, but is hiding secrets that make him cautious, and rightfully so. Bram is an ATF agent, and has knowledge of a rival MC the Heathens . The growing attraction, the secrets, intrigue, betrayal, oh so hot sex scenes and Brams love for his brother make this story interesting and worth listening. Enjoyed the narration by Mark Larchmont as well.

I read this story years ago, and decided it was time to revisit in Audiobook. One can never get enough of Co Ho stories and this one was exceptional. Ridge, Sydney, Maggie, Warren and Bridgett will always have a place in my heart. The angst between Ridge and Maggie/ Ridge and Sydney the love, loss, the camaraderie and pranks, the loyalty Warren has for Ridge, even crazy Bridget and her offending remarks, make this book a treasure. The most endearing fact is Ridges handicap and how he never let it stand in his way in his success, never saw it as a failure.
Bravo to Zachary Webber and Angela Goethals in your narration.

I wanted a family with Cash. We had dreams - building a house, kids, a dog, and, yes, even the white picket fence. I don’t remember anything about my husband. Not the wedding or the vows we shared. The past 10 years were erased, but with time, they’re supposed to come back. But what if this isn’t your typical case of amnesia? What if I’m not supposed to remember? What if I was meant to forget? Maybe I don’t want my old life back. Because if the accident hadn’t happened, I wouldn’t have uncovered the truth. Losing my memory wasn’t tragic. Losing my memory was fate.

Until We Are Gone, by Gia Riley really threw me for a loop. I thought I had the story all figured out, Meadow an amnesia victim, her loving husband Cash only wanting what’s best. Her friend Teddie trying to keep an eye so Meadow doesn’t do anything harmful to herself, but keeping a safe distance So as not to alarm. It all made sense, the albums, the many things Cash did, including the eventual hospitalization, so Meadow could finally get the help she so desperately needed.
Till Meadow started dreaming of another not Cash, and the dreams were not ordinary. The premise of the dreams and the meeting of the man on which her dreams are based, then we find how Cash duped her. What a conclusion for a well written story. Thank you Gia Riley and Audio book boom for this book, for a fair and honest review. Also I would like to mention the narrator Sarah Puckett for a job well done.

The moment I laid my eyes on her, I knew she was going to be mine. I also knew that I'd have to do everything I could to ensure that my past remained a secret. The trouble I'd been in shouldn't have to define my future. I should have known that secrets can't stay hidden forever. Now that they're out, she's as frightened of me as everyone else. She wants nothing to do with me. She's ordered me to stay far, far away. She has no idea how deep my love runs and I'm not giving up on her. She can push me away as much as she wants but she will be mine, even if it's the last thing we do.

I was given this audible book for a fair and honest review, thank you Rodney Falcon. I’m sure this wasn’t necessarily your fault but in parts I was a little confused on who was speaking. Otherwise I enjoyed your narration.
The story in a nutshell, Nick is released from prison, is invited to stay with his friend Curtis and girlfriend Kim, Kim has no idea Nick was in prison. Curtis and Nick want to keep it that way. Nick falls for Alexa, Kim’s best friend. All is well till Nick moves into his own place and Alexa finds some damaging information, accuses Nick of lying and withholding info. Nick being persuasive, eventually convinces Kim to give him another chance. In the end we have a HEA of sorts?
This story to me was not dark, however in some cases I felt Nick was on the verge of being a stalker, no means no regardless of the circumstances and he continually disregarded Alexa’s request to stay away. Alexa on the other hand was being illogical in not hearing Nick out, she in hear anger thought she knew all, but knew nothing.

First and foremost I want to thank the author Irina Shapiro for gifting me this audible book. When she did so I realized that it was part of a series and messaged her if it could be read as a stand-alone, she messaged me back that it could, but after the first chapter I decided I wanted to know more. I got the first three previous books and I’m glad I did. This series is so intriguing. The day to day life of Quinn Allenby, with her psychic ability to see the past though the touch of a personal object, her husband Gabe and the many characters that have developed though these stories are interesting. Quinn’s insatiable desire to find not only her past, but those poor souls whose demise can’t be explained, because they have been buried in strange out of place manors. Quinn is essentially a woman who will not rest till she gets to the bottom of a case, sometimes even when it puts her in jeopardy, which it has many times. I’m sure there will be more in this series and will await it.

Ray Moore put his faith and love in two people his niece Addi Moore and Andrew (Trigger) Fritz, a young man with a past, and accomplishments he has kept hidden. When Ray passes he leaves all of what he owns to these two people, knowing they belong together.
Andrew does indeed love Addi, but his past will not owe him to be with her, so he thinks. Addi loves Andrew, but her emotions are mixed because of Andrews past attitude towards her.
Tor Thom and Charley Ongel are going to tell you this story of Andrews past transgressions and you can decide if he is guilty or a patsy of his evil biker dad. Also is he deserving of Addi’s love. As always Thor and Charley put there special spin into this story and have your emotions in a flutter in the right places.

Right out of the Marines, Slade's first mistake was patching into a club that was headed down a destructive path. His second was rolling into Shadow Valley on a search for answers. He had no plans to patch into another club, even one like the DAMC, and he certainly wasn't looking for an ol' lady. Especially a ball-buster like Diamond, who could singe the hair off a brother's nuts with just a look. DAMC born and bred, Diamond was ready to give up on becoming an ol' lady until the heavily tattooed biker rolled into town on his Harley. Problem is, months later Slade's still a mystery.

Jealous much Slade, is my first thought as this story unfolds and you sit and watch Diamond with the male strippers, I listen to your intermonologue, at her birthday party, then you act on your attraction. Way to go.
It’s a shame that history has to get in the way and of course the Shadow warriors have to cause trouble and evoke more old wounds, plus memories better off forgotten are brought to the surface. When you think there would be animosity between the two the bond only gets stronger.
Love the way Jeanne St. James brings these two together, love even with all the revelations there is only love. Brings this couple to the top of my list. Also I have to give a big shoutout to the narrators Ava Lucas and Aaron Sherlock way to go, you brought Diamond and Slade into living color if only in my minds eye. Thank you.

It’s been said that you can’t love two men at the same time. You can’t split your heart, soul, and body in half. But I’m here to tell you, you can. Dylan Cole is like ice, sharp and unpredictable, the thunder inside a tumultuous storm. Smith Reid is warmth, soft and gentle, perfect like a sunny day. Both are mine. But I can have only one. There are two sides to this tale. I'm here to tell you mine. If you think this story is about a cheater, you couldn’t be more wrong.

It was a whirlwind romance between Alix Rain and Dylan Cole.
Dylan swept her off her feet until one tragic day, the day that Alix didn’t truly recover from. She hide it well from the people that didn’t really know her, but two people in her life saw the devastation that had become Alix Cole.
I’m still trying to absorb everything Marni Mann has written in this indescribably good book. It was my first experience with this author believe me it won’t be the last.
