Detective Matthew Bennett doesn't believe in ghosts. So when the spirit of a murdered child leads him to her body, he's shaken to the core - and taken off the case. Unable to explain his vision, or to let go of the investigation, Matthew turns to renowned medium Kiernan Fitzpatrick. Though he has doubts about Kiernan's claims to communicate with the dead, Matt is nevertheless drawn to the handsome psychic, who awakens feelings he thought were long-buried.

This is my first book by Diana Copeland and I admit it sat in my queue for quite some time. I downloaded it spontaneously and I wasn’t sure I was going to enjoy it because of the supernatural aspect. I am so glad I decided to listen to it. In fact, I didn’t want to “put it down”! This book really had everything from mystery to intrigue and of course to romance. I absolutely fell in love with both of the main characters and laughed and cried throughout the book.

The writing was a perm and the narration was excellent. I can’t wait to read more of this authors books.

This was my first book by Josh Landon and I am really impressed with his writing. I enjoyed the story, it had just the right amount of mystery, murder, intrigue and romance. Elliot is a former FBI agent who was injured in a shooting and retired instead of taking a desk job. He is now a college professor and when the son of a family friend goes missing his father asks him to jump in see what he can find out. Enter Tucker, Elliot's ex and the FBI agent assigned to the case. Soon we find that this case is so much bigger than one missing person. While Tucker and Elliot set out to solve the mystery, their romance once again sparks to life. Can it survive? Can Elliot? Hmmmm.... you'll have to read to find out!

Great narration by Sawyer Allerde. If you like a good mystery, Fair Game delivers.

Declan had never met the kid who was to be his joint best man. Sam Aiken was abroad, working as an interpreter and finishing his studies. But on meeting Sam Aiken, Declan is surprised to realize the kid isn't a kid at all, but a tall, blond, and athletic young man. Declan is sure he's straight, so he's alarmed by the ferocious attraction he feels for Sam. And as the attraction is reciprocated, the events at Dunloch Castle change everything Declan has ever believed about himself.

This fast-paced book is the first I have listened to of Isobel Starling, and I really enjoyed it. Isobel introduced our characters, Sam and Declan, in the airport on their way to their siblings wedding. They literally collided and this set off a bit of contention between them, yet at time, neither knew who the other was. It wasn't until a little later that they were introduced and we start to see sparks fly. Sam was out and Declan was straight, which made their attraction to one another complicated to say the least. However, Sam's wit seems to cast a spell over Declan and he was a goner. Soon they were sneaking away to... ahem, I'll leave this part to your imagination, but let's just say it was hot. They have a fun, intense and all too brief affair while at the wedding and then Sam is jetted of to a new job in a new place, leaving poor Declan forlorn. Fast forward a few months to a steamy hot reconciliation, and a bomb dropped by Sam.. The. End! Seriously, the end! Omigosh... this book left you with so many questions. I'll look forward to seeing more of these delicious boys and their budding relationship in Book 2!

I think the narrator, Gary Furlong, did a great job. I like how he captured Sam's charm and Declan's brogue! It was fun to listen to.

Aaron Stevens likes his life the way it is. As a surgical resident, he doesn't have the time or inclination for a serious relationship. So the fact his lover lives halfway around the world and is fine with jetting off to exotic locales a couple times a year is as close to perfect as he can get. For years, Jack Hayes has been at Aaron's beck and call, satisfied with submitting to him whenever Aaron and his busy life allow. But after a change in his family's company, Jack has begun to examine what he really wants in life.

What made the experience of listening to Nothing Serious the most enjoyable?

The narrator, Greg Bourdreaux was great playing the dual roles of British Jack and American Aaron. He captured the both of their personalities wonderfully. This is a fantastic story about two men who have been involved in a transatlantic, long term love affair without really ever realizing that they were in love. The story bring them together in the US at Aaron's sister's wedding and we see just how combustible the sparks are between them. Aaron is tightly locked in the closet, however. It is one he has been residing comfortably in for a long, long time. It isn't until he realizes that he could lose Jack that he knows he has to make some major life changes or risk losing the love of his life. Their journey is a sexy and sometimes heartbreaking one but in the end, it is all worth it! That's the price of love.

What does Greg Boudreaux bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I loved Greg's British accent.

Ace Locke is Hollywood's hottest action hero. Women across the globe fling their panties in his direction, but Ace isn't interested in those - he's more of a boxer briefs kind of guy. Specifically, those of the nearly naked male model on a billboard he drives past every day. Though he recently made headlines for his public coming out, Ace is wary about pursuing a relationship, fearing what the court of public opinion will do to his career.

Fantasies - we all have them. For some, it's their dream job; others want the wedding, the 2.5 kids, the white picket fence. My fantasies are a bit more...depraved. Dark and sinful, they have destroyed relationships and my livelihood, yet I still submit to them like a slave. Sex. For most, it's a natural expression of love, caring, or lust. But there are those of us who can't stop once we've had a taste. Those of us who don't want to. And the shame of that never-ending cycle will eat us alive....

Would you listen to A Desperate Man again? Why?

Jonathan James smokey voice captures the torment, torture and struggles that are Evan James perfectly. A highly recommended listen if you want to follow through this man's journey from addiction to love.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Evan and Reagan are the best combination of playful, sexy and deep. There interactions from the minute they meet are explosive. The storytelling is balanced perfectly. It is hard not to love both of these character's and all their strengths and weaknesses equally!

Which scene was your favorite?

As steamy as the entire book was, one of the best moments happened simply when Evan and Reagan hold hands on their road trip. You could feel the shift in their relationship in that moment. Reagan was Evan's calm.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Too hot to handle, yet so much more.

Any additional comments?

Ella Frank and Brooke Blaine do a fabulous job of bringing these characters to life, Jonathan James gives them a voice. This book is so much more than what you think it starts out to read. It begins a little dark, with a tortured man and damaged women. They come together in passion but throughout the book learn that love is a much more powerful and healing emotion.
