Bane: Naked surfer. Habitual pothead. A con, a liar, a thief, and a fraud. Last I heard, he was extorting the rich and screwing their wives for a living. Which is why I’m more than a little surprised to find him at my threshold, looking for my friendship, my services, and most puzzling of all - looking humbled. Thing is, I’m on a boycott. Literally - cut boys from my life. Permanently. Problem is, Bane is not a boy, he is all man, and I’m falling, crashing, drowning in his sweet, perfect lies.

Absolutely Amazing!

Bane & Jesse just became my favorite couple. The storyline is phenomenal and better than the previous installment. Just expect the unexpected. The story is twisted, emotinal, enthralling and much more. The characters likeable and memorable.

This book was a real page-turner. Full of emotions and so bloody beautiful!! Can't wait for the audiobook to come out so that I can re-live the experience in another freaking amazing way!!

Whynter Storm arrived at DM Industries to complete an employment application. After accidentally meeting the sexy and powerful owner, Dominic Montgomery, they fall into flirtatious and friendly rhetoric. An impromptu interview with the big boss man lands her in the perfect job - only it’s based on a mistaken identity. With the help of Whynter’s great sense of humor, flirtatious banter, and engaging vibes, she and Mr. Montgomery begin a unique professional relationship. After a dinner meeting, the strict company policy of "no office romance" becomes difficult to follow.

I'd been known to have my share of beautiful women. Usually, I met them in a bar, through a mutual acquaintance, or even when photographing them. Imagine my surprise when a gorgeous blonde drove her car into mine on the way to a party. No more than a minute after our run-in, a string of colorful words flew from her mouth in rapid fire. Inexplicably, the angrier she became, the harder I got. All sorts of scenarios played in my head of how I could get her to shut up. When I learned she was a school teacher, that worsened my disposition.

A three book bundle of a fantastic series for just one credit is a gift from author Amber Burns to everyone to whom enjoys great audiobooks! Gideon Welles performance was fill with so much emotion on this three surprising stories.

I'm not a big fan of MC Romance, but is great stories like this one that keep me coming back to this genre. There was so much chemistry and connection between main characters on each story that it was so easy to feel part of their journey.

If you read Overhaul, Enforcer, and Rebel, this is your chance to re-experience their stories in a different and enjoyable way with just one credit! The Boneyard Brotherhood Collection is intense, intriguing, captivating, entertaining, action packed, passionate, sexy and much more!!

This exciting story is a great read on its own. However, when you hear it performed is even more exciting and captivating.
Daniel James Lewis did an amazing job with his performance, and I did really enjoyed listening and feeling as if I was part of the story. Nevertheless, I wish this would have been a dual narration (male & female narrators).

This story has everything you wish from a fantastic read or/and listening experience!!

The minus in the performance it also includes chapter 10 and 11 being duplicates!!

Cozen Taylor has more than earned her place as one of North America’s most successful thieves. Her name is whispered among criminal elite as the go-to thief when someone needs a heist. She has never failed. A call from the Miami-based Astor family could change all that with a job that seems almost impossible to complete. The mark should be simple - a stolen family heirloom, the man who has kept it hidden for more than 20 years, and six months to return the piece to its rightful owners. Nothing is ever that easy.

Cozen is dark, suspenseful, intriguing, steamy and entertaining. It starts at a low paced, but captivating your attention, and getting you hooked, nonetheless.

The story is well-written, a great plot twist you don't see coming and amazing and very compelling characters. The one thing I love the most, is to find a heroine that is strong, independent, and smart. I real badass, regardless of everything she has gone through.

The performance by Connor Goff was great, however, I wish we have had a dual performance (male and female narrators) since this book was about Cozen's story, and most of the audiobook had a female dialogue in it. Nevertheless, I did enjoy listening to it!!

This is a must listen and I highly recommend you give it a try!!

Anything a man can do, I can do it better. I’ve lived by that credo my entire life, and with my dangerous "job", it’s always been true. I’m a rich man’s kryptonite; I can pretend to desire you and then execute a plan to take all you own. My brothers and I live a dangerous lifestyle. Then in walks muscles, murky green eyes, and a cocky smile. August needs a place to stay, and he’s saved my kid brother’s life. Now, he’s a god to my brothers. Can he really be trusted? I'll put a bullet to his head if he proves my intuition is right.

Struggle to finish? Not really, just a little frustrated at the beginning, almost giving up. However, I'm glad I listened without giving up.

Favorite part of the story: Almost different than any other I have read. Very unexpected!!

My story starts with a plunge into the cold water of Manhattan's harbor. A strong hand hauls me back onto the deck of the luxury yacht. Christopher was supposed to be my enemy. Instead he protects me with fierce determination. That should have been my happily ever after, but then Sutton appeared - ruthless and seductive. He doesn't care that my heart belongs to someone else, because he's determined to win. No matter the cost.

Nothing like having a story come to life by one of your favorite performers, and in this case I'm talking about the amazing Erin Mallon, who's just brilliant!!

Survival of the Richest is Book 1 in the Trust Fund Duet, and even though I read the complete duet, my perseption of the story have completely changed after Erin's performance, and so did my rating!! Now I can't wait lo lsiten to book 2, The Evolution of Man!!

Listening and reading are two different wonderful experiences when there is a great story and the author's nail it with the performer!! I'm not going into detail with the storyline because there had been enough spoilers and I don't want to ruin it for you guys. However, one thing I can assure you is that listening to this story is going to blow your mind!!

I can't wait to find out if Christopher, Sutton and Harper found their HEA!! I need the next audiobooks ASAP!!!
