The only thing that ever stood between me and madness was Greyson. And now, she's in trouble. She's falling into the hole that almost ended me. The only thing standing between her and the fate I escaped is me. But I have no expertise in this; no knowledge but what she taught me. I'm flying blind here, and every moment that passes brings me closer to losing her. She says I'm crossing the line, but she can draw a million lines around her, and I'll cross every single one to get to her, even if it destroys me.

Can't say enough good things about this series - WOW!! Not predictable in any way, it takes you down a path you thought would never end the way it does. The narrators are 2 of my favorites so that made it one of the best series I have listened to in a very long time - I am ready to start it over again. The chemistry of Caden and Grayson is off the charts and it is HOT, HOT, HOT!! Don't ever stop writing Ms. Reiss - can't wait for what's next.

The Acquisition has ruled my life, ruled my every waking moment since Sinclair Vinemont first showed up at my house offering an infernal bargain to save my father's life. Now I know the stakes. The charade is at an end, and Sinclair has far more to lose than I ever did. But this knowledge hasn't strengthened me. Instead, each revelation breaks me down until nothing is left but my fight and my rage. As I struggle to survive, only one question remains. How far will I go to save those I love and burn the Acquisition to the ground?

Just finished this trilogy by Celia Aaron, who is a new author for me and has now become one of my favorites. The best part about this trilogy, was I didn't have to wait months to get each part of the story - I want to thank the author or publisher, whoever is in charge of that decision, because there is nothing worse than having to wait for the next book to come out.
You really have to like dark romance, but if you do, you are in for one heck of a ride. The imagination and detail that this author brings to her story is beyond words. Some parts were hard to take, but then that's what makes it so moving and dark - not for the weak at heart.
I highly recommend this trilogy to anyone who likes it dark and no one has paid me or given books for free to state that fact - enjoy!!

Really good story and yes the narrator has a real nice voice, however he did not even try on the female voice and it was distracting - you get lost not knowing who is really talking, as the voice was exactly the same for male and female - then on the grandmother's voice he made her sound like "The Terminator", it was horrible. This narrator needs to stick with reading only male portions of audio books. I was disappointed, and praying that Book 2 has a different narrator.

New Orleans belongs to me. You don't know my name, but I control everything you see - and all the things you don't. My reach knows no bounds, and my demands are always met. I didn't need to loan money to a failing family distillery, but it amuses me to have them in my debt. To have her in my debt. She doesn't know she caught my attention. She should've been more careful. I'm going to own her. Consume her. Maybe even keep her. It's time to collect what I'm owed.

One of Meghan's best - I devoured this audio!! Cannot wait for the continuation! This one is hot, hot, hot! Loved that Mount is dominant, aggressive and very taken with Kiera - they make for a very hot couple - he is bringing out the feisty in her and she is loving every minute of it, even though she wants to fight him every step of the way - hoping their dynamics stay this way in the next two books - these are two of the best narrators also, which always helps with audio - good job all the way around - well worth the credit!

I came from a place of dirt floors and holy scriptures. They told me the world outside was full of sin, and the first night I escape, I find out it's true. Ivan saves me, but he does more than that. He takes me. He makes me his own girl. My conditioning runs too deep. Ivan sees what I am. That's the thing about showing a mouse to a cat. He wants to play. And it's terrifying, even for me. Because the only thing darker than my past is his.

Absolutely love this one - the dynamics between this couple were so endearing - Ivan is so gruff and hard core, everyone fears him, but not his "little one". They made such a cute couple, so glad they found each other!! Loved the spankings and chemistry these two had - now time to move onto the next story in this series - great job Ms. Warren - love your books.
P.S. Never change narrators, Ms. Fox is fantastic. Highly recommend this audio!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely - I never wanted it to end and it was long - so sad that it has ended.

What other book might you compare Heaven and Hell to and why?

There is no comparison

Which scene was your favorite?

Too many to list! So amazing these characters and the love they have for each other. I want a Sam to protect and love on me - WOW!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I cried numerous times, I laughed, I hoped, I stressed - a very emotional and good feel book. Kristen Ashley is one of the best authors out there - her books just pull you in and make you never want to leave.

Any additional comments?

The narrator of this audiobook was one of the best I've ever listened to and I believe I've listened to over 600 audio books in the last 2 years alone - she is amazing (actually more like an actress, than a narrator) - If I could have scored her and this audio a perfect 10, I would have. Beautiful story!!

Wealthy, easy on the eyes and overwhelmingly male and dominant, Arik Southgate was everything I'd ever wanted in a man, and, surprisingly, he seemed to want me, too. After my recent disastrous relationship, it felt good to be an object of desire again. He made me feel as if I was the only woman on the planet for him - he paid attention, close attention - to me, and he didn't hesitate to call me on what he considered to be bad behavior.

This probably would have been a nice story, however the Narrator did not even try on the female parts. I had a hard time following along as to who was talking because the male and female parts were the same voice - so distracting, I couldn't finish. Sorry, just being honest.

Joanna has seen some remarkable things deep in the woods in her role as the chief ranger of a popular national park. However, she never expected to witness a camper receiving a paddling high up on the mountain. When she realizes that she is not disturbed by the poor girl's pleas for the spanking to stop, she wonders if the past she has put behind her is truly history.

Let me just start with saying I absolutely love Maggie Ryan, but I am sorry I couldn't make it through this audio and it wasn't because of the writing, the narrator was horrible - why they would use him for this type of book is beyond me. He did not even come close on the female voices and he just started to get on my nerves to where I wasn't even paying attention to what he was saying. Sorry, I don't like to write negative reviews, but do appreciate it when I read honest reviews and it saves me from getting stuck with something that is a waste of my time and money. If this story is ever re-done with a different narrator, I would buy it.

Purchased this audio first in the series as it was on sale and thought I'd check it out - I got about 40 minutes into it, when I realized how much more enjoyable it would be to start from the beginning, so I stopped and immediately purchased book 1 in the 3 book series "Once Burned" and was I glad I did. I have found myself a new author and am so excited to listen to every audio she has available. What an adventure, on the edge of my seat - I cried, laughed, swooned and enjoyed every minute in all three books in this series and mourned when it was over. The narrator was absolutely amazing, does so many different voices and you can feel the passion in her voice. Highly recommend!!! You don't want to miss this!!

Elizabeth's life changed the moment she saw a sleek, black, limousine pull up to the curb outside the restaurant where she and her dearest friends were having a celebration dinner before going to the local club. Though she knew she shouldn't, she found herself stepping back into the shadows as the man she had bumped into earlier led his companion to the car. Her breath caught in her throat as she witnessed a scene that would follow her into her dreams.

Would you try another book from Maggie Ryan and/or Kalinda Little?

Absolutey love Maggie Ryan and believe this story would have been good also - but the narrator ruined it.

What didn’t you like about Kalinda Little’s performance?

Didn't care for the sound of her voice - she was too animated and the characters were left flat and I couldn't connect.
