Bitten Once is by far the best mix of paranormal creatures and powers I have come across in a while. You have the perfect blend of suspense, love, and attraction just waiting to be unlocked. I fell in love with the characters quickly and can't wait to see what happens to Alexa and her relationship between Arys and Shaz. Sarah also nailed these characters and personalities and gave life to the various voices of each of the characters!

They call him The Mute for a reason. Hard, cold, and calculated, he rarely speaks. When he does, it's with disdain. When he does, his words aren't meant for me. When he does, my stomach flips and my world tilts on its axis. He is 33. I am 18. He's a single dad and my father's business partner. I'm just a kid to him and his enemy's daughter. He's emotionally unavailable. And I am...feeling. Feeling things I shouldn't feel for him. Trent Rexroth is going to break my heart. The writing isn't just on the wall, it's inked on my soul.

First, I can't tell you how much I love this book other than I have read it too many times to count and listened to the audible just as much! HOT is not the word, more like on FIRE!! The male voice for Trent Rexroth is hot as FU** and adds so much more to the book. I love the buildup between Edie and Trent is hot and L.J. Shen does an excellent job in epic charector development and storyline with a hotness that I melted over. This is a must read!

I received this book for a book review and OMG!! No joke this was a pleasant surprise for me, as to how much I would love this book.

The book comes off to a slow start but holy moly once you are part way through the first chapter you are hooked. I lost sleep over this last night because I couldn't stop listening and am defiantly moving onto book two. I have to know what happened and how it's all going to play out! If you are looking for a thrilling, edge of your seat, can't wait to turn the page or listen to the next chapter, this book will do it for you. Can't wait to dive into the next book!!!

What did you love best about Carter Reed 2?

I don't even know what to say other than, WOW! I loved this book more than the first and Tijan so has to have a third book in this series. Like you left me wanting and hoping for more.

If you could take any character from Carter Reed 2 out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I would so take Carter out, who else....hehehehe! He is just, WOW!

Any additional comments?

I have read this series several times and have listened to them several times as well. Again Tijan you yank me right into your world with in minutes of opening your books!

For some people, silence is a weapon. For Mallory "Mouse" Dodge, it's a shield. Growing up, she learned that the best way to survive was to say nothing. And even though it's been four years since her nightmare ended, she's beginning to worry that the fear that holds her back will last a lifetime. Now, after years of homeschooling with loving adoptive parents, Mallory must face a new milestone - spending her senior year at a public high school.

When Alexandra's older brother dies the night of his graduation, it changes everything for her. No longer is she the party girl. No longer does she care about being popular, and no longer is her family the happy unit she always thought existed. The only person who can help her heal is the same person who loved her brother as much as she did, his best friend. She only hopes to keep her heart from breaking when Jesse moves on, and she knows he will.

Would you consider the audio edition of Broken and Screwed to be better than the print version?

I would have to say I enjoyed both, but the audio version really put more character into the story.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Broken and Screwed?

I don't know where to start, but I would have to say when she burned the letter from her parents, that was EPIC!

What about Jillian Macie’s performance did you like?

I just love how she brings the characters to life and really pulls you into the book quickly!

Any additional comments?

Again, I can't get enough of Tijan's work and always love to purchase the audio version as soon as they come out.

I had a simple life. I worked two jobs, made ends meet, and hung out with my mom and twin brother. The other part of my life was about avoiding him, but when SWAT raided my boyfriend's home, that was the last straw. The boyfriend got tossed, and to help me keep busy, my brother talked me into joining their old band again. I have to be honest, though; it wasn't a hard sell.

No, this is my first time listening to her.

A series of weather and road mishaps leave me trapped in the middle of a blizzard with a complete stranger. In the back of a pickup truck. For 48 freakin' hours. A stranger with long hair, tattoos, and rippling with muscle. A stranger with an insanely sexy voice and a wicked smile that turns my insides to jelly. A stranger who holds me in his arms, calms me, and then sets a fire in me that I can't put out.

I was warned about Tristan Cole. "Stay away from him," people said. "He's cruel." "He's cold." "He's damaged." It's easy to judge a man because of his past. To look at Tristan and see a monster. But I couldn't do that. I had to accept the wreckage that lived inside of him, because it also lived inside of me.

I was elated when it came available on audible and loved it. It's a must read but get a box of tissue and be prepared to not only cry but laugh out loud.
