Five Aston has known Rory Shrike for as long as he can remember. He played with her in the sandbox. He went to every damn horse show just to be supportive. He helped her with her French, walked her home from school, and faked his test scores just to stay with her a little longer and not be sent off to college early. But eventually he had to move on. And so did she. Never has a second chance meant so much to a boy who loves a girl.

YES YES YES, This is exactly what I needed in Five & Rory's story! I love this entire world that the author has created, the only issue I have is that I have a terrible memory so with all the twists and turns in these books I almost need to re-listen every time a new book is released. One day I will start from the beginning and binge on this world. Five's story was perfect in my opinion! After the other Mister books I fell in love with Five and needed to know his story and needed the back story of him & Rory. These two were meant for each other from the very beginning....literally! Five is mysterious but is also a very good guy who just wants to live his live with Rory. Rory is a badass and the perfect compliment to Five. Together these two have a plan and even if everything doesn't go exactly like that thought, they are unbreakable. I really enjoyed getting to know the softer side of Five and how much he loves Rory. Again I have to say, JA Huss knew exactly what we needed and gave it to us with perfection!

The narration was PERFECT!!!! I have serious love for Teddy Hamilton so I knew he would make this book amazing but I had no idea that Anna Riordan would make Rory into exactly what I needed!! Great casting as always by JA Huss! You can always tell when an author cares about their audiobook when they are GREAT at casting for their characters!

Maybe Dolan has lived independent, free-spirited and unattached since leaving home at 16. Whiskey Sharp, Seattle's sexy vintage-styled barbershop and whiskey bar, gave her a job - and a reason to put down roots. Cutting hair by day, losing herself drumming in a punk rock band by night, she's got it good. But a longtime crush that turns into a hot, edgy night with brooding and bearded Alexsei Petrov makes it a hell of a lot better. Maybe's blunt attitude and carnal smile hooked Alexsei from the start. Protecting people is part of his nature.

I love all things Lauren Dane and this one didn't disappoint! The characters in this book were all very interesting and they pulled me in from the beginning. The romance in this story was almost a friends to lovers story because they knew each other, worked together and were very comfortable around each other before they finally came together. Maybe is a very chatty hair dresser with a lot of family baggage. Her sister was probably the most interesting character for me in this book and I can't wait to get to her story because it's going to be good!!! Her past almost made this book feel like I had missed the first book because it was mentioned as if we already knew her story but we didn't. Alexsei is Maybe's boss and a hot protective Russian who's entire family lives next door to Maybe. Now his characters was very likable and everything but his family was great!! I think they are going to make this series a lot of fun!

The narration was really good... THANK GOD! I'm usually disappointed with Harlequin Audio's narration choices for this authors books so I went in with low expectations and was happily wrong. Simone Lewis did a great job on this book, especially the Russian accent!!!!!

No last names. No life stories. Those were the rules. Once upon a time a cocky, copper-haired tourist sauntered into Zara's bar. And even though she knew better, Zara indulged in a cure for the small-town blues. It was supposed to be an uncomplicated fling - a few sizzling weeks before he went back to his life, and she moved on. Until an accidental pregnancy changed her life. Two years later, she's made peace with the notion that Dave No-Last-Name will never be found - until one summer day when he walks into her coffee shop.

I loved this book and stayed up all night to finish it. Sarina Bowen is a must buy author for me! This series has been great from book 1 but this one was my favorite I think. I loved the characters, they were both so good and normal, like they could be your friends. Dave & Zara are incredibly HOT together and they have a great connection. I loved them together from chapter 1. They have such amazing chemistry that you can't help but fall for their love story. I have a huge soft spot for Men with children in my books. This book was sweet, sexy, realistic and my favorite... Not overly dramatic!!!! I also love that all of these series' are entwining but even if you don't remember the other books this could have been a stand alone.

The narration was great! Teddy Hamilton was the PERFECT choice for Dave. He really brought Dave to life for me! Seraphine Valentine was also very good, not sure if I have ever heard her before but I would absolutely buy another audiobook if she was narrating!

This is what I call a comfort read, with a twist. I really enjoyed this book. The slight mystery going on put this book into a whole new genre for me. It wasn't just a romance but a great reminder that there are good people in this world. Kate is a great character, she is tough, strong and honest, exactly what a women should be (IMHO). The romance is very light. I think this was more about loss, deceit and strength than it was romance. It really makes my heart smile when the characters in a book get it right without all the drama, just because they are good people and know how people should be.

The narration on this audiobook was fabulous! This was my 1st Laurel Schroeder but we not be my last. I think she captured Kate perfectly and did a great job on the male characters, so good I really never thought about the narrator being a female when she was reading for the males and I usually do. I'm very picky about female to male and vice versa!

If you like a book that drags you in from page one and leaves your heart a little lighter, this is a book for you!!

I really enjoyed this book! If you like the Walking Dead and erotica, you'll love this book. Ali, Daniel & Finn are trying to survive during the zombie apocalypse and they find each other. The action is high, the sex is Hot and the narration is fabulous! This series is a new twist in erotica that makes this a whole genre of it's own. I can't wait to start book 2!

Carly Robichaux Cutler LeRoux? Stumbling on my biological mother was the last thing I expected when I moved to Maine. And boy, is this discovery a doozy, because my DNA gave me more than just blue eyes. But that's the least of my worries. Sierra's living a nightmare that could destroy more than her sanity.

Great short series. Enjoying the characters, the story line and the narration. Thank god book 4 came out on Audio today since that ending was non existent!! Be prepared for a cliffhanger on this one! This author is impressing me very much with how well she is drawing me in and getting me attached to the characters in such a short time frame.

Carly Le Roux. Rolls right off the tongue, doesn't it? The moment Brady Le Roux touched me any doubt he was my destiny vanished. Even after discovering he's more than just a man. And that wasn't the only shock he had for me. But each new revelation exhilarates the warrior in me - I'm here to stay. I think I may have been born for this.

I'm Carly Cutler, and my dreams predict the future. So why am I dreaming about a sexy beast of a guy, a bear, and a paw-print design? I don't know. A force I can't fight wants me to find out. I'm leaving the only life I've ever known. With a fresh tattoo of a bear paw and my best friend by my side, I'm on a quest to find a man I've never met.

This was an enjoyable start to this mini-series. I enjoy short shifter books so this was right up my ally. The narration was good, the writing was good and the story pulled me in! I'm excited to see where this is going. Hopefully part 2 will be a little more eventful and steamy!
