KA Moll has a way with words.
Never have I ever ...read a book and been so in tune with characters and their flaws.
If you haven't read this book, or listened to it's audible version...i would surely urge you to do so.
The twists and turns beckon you back for more with each page. and just when you think you have it all figured out. BAM!
Zane and Jaina are the ultimate pair. Stack the odds against them, and they are a force to be reckoned with. Together, as well as apart.

Soul Mates by KA Moll is where their journey starts. If you get the chance, take a read or a listen to that one as well. Neither book will disappoint!

A prominent figure amongst New York City's fashion elite, Elena Vega is a successful businesswoman and single mother to an adorable three-year-old son, Lucas. Her love life, however, is lacking, as those closest to her keep pointing out. At the persistent urging of her closest friend, Elena reluctantly agrees to a string of blind dates if she can find a suitable babysitter for Lucas. Enter Allison Sawyer, a free-spirited senior at New York University. Elena is intrigued by Allison's ability to push her out of her element, and the young woman's instant and easy connection with a normally shy Lucas quickly earns Allison the job. After each blind date, Elena returns home to complain to Allison about her lacking suitors. As they bond, Elena begins to realize that the person possessing all the qualities she most desires might just be the woman who has been in front of her the entire time.

Looks can be deceiving, and there's much more to a person than meets the eye.
This book was absolutely engaging. The characters are some to wish for in books to come.
I was extremely sad that it came to an end!!
The narrator was rather delightful, and captured many character voices perfectly.
Great job all the way around!! I will search more books from KL Hughes.

Follow Margaret and Courteney through their journey through time, making their story come alive.
Never have I ever read or listened to a more passionately geared story.
The heart wrenching, then heartwarming mess of a life, both together and apart.
These women tangle themselves into a web of love that pushes apart, and snaps back in the most beautiful way.
The characters are all very easy to bond with. Down to earth, hospitable, everyday people.
The journey is truly that...a journey. Emotions run hot, in every sense of the word.
I felt everything from love to anger, happiness to sorrow, and yet all the while enjoying the ride alongside them.
It does take a little roller coaster turn here and there, which makes it all worth the while.
I'd love to hear more of these characters if Miss Brayden were to delve into this for another go.
To experience love to the fullest, you must really let yourself live it! I'm all for that!!

It took a few minutes getting use to the narrator's voice, but it wasn't long before it started flowing.
it is one I well listen to multiple times. The characters are easy to like, then love.

The storyline was great. The fluctuations in characters were fun, and energizing!

When the athletic Mrs. Robertson, 38, comes for a swim at the pool of Mr. and Mrs. Telford's house, she begins a conversation with Tasha, their 20-year-old daughter, who seems shy but a little flirtatious. Soon the older woman is drawn in by the young woman's pool-blue eyes and she asks Tasha to apply a little sun-lotion on her tanned and muscled body. It's the start of an incredibly erotic afternoon that eventually embraces Francisca, the gorgeous dark-haired maid.

If you think you have read almost everything there is, you are very wrong!

Again, Miss Rivera has taken the life of a party to new heights.
The narrator works wonders to find the very core of the reader as well, and wi th such emphasis to detail.
Beautifully entertaining women. Utterly enjoyable method. An absolute treat, if ever there were one!

5 stars isn't enough for this wild ride.

Very well written, and maintained! This is another great read from Bridget. The narration was as great as the story!
Nothing like the usual creature book. vampires and wolves, or at least one (who is not a pet).
This is a definite Must Read! The twists and turns aren't for the faint of heart. But, then again, who can resist an unconventional love story? Beautifully done!

As all the other erotic stories by Paris Rivera, Waking Felicia is a definite must read!
Steady yourself for a heart pumping journey into the impulsive actions that lead Diane, Felicia and Leticia into a night you would never wish to forget!
Just when you think you have it all figured out...You don't! Naughty babysitters sometimes have to take punishment, and indeed she does!
Very well written, and the narrator's quest for making the reader fall into its snare (face first) is a guarantee!
