I love this book's richly descriptive fall scenery. It really puts you in the mood for Halloween. The author who also narrates this book, did a really good job. At times the audio recording had some static, but it wasn't so bad that it's distracting. I highly recommend this book for kids who love the fun of fall, even the big kids like me.😉

A salon turns into a steamy fantasy when a sexy intelligent customer keeps the beautician working after hours. I like that the author didn't use repetitive sex as a means of holding my interest. Unlike some short erotica, the teasing banter and humor is a breath of fresh air. I usually don't go for books where the author also narrates, but in this case it works. Her voice is pleasing and she tells the story well. I was given a free copy of this audio book at my request and have voluntarily decided to leave this review

Evangeline's life is dark and lonely. She'll do anything to change that. Anything. Even play a game with a stranger she's never met. What starts out as "therapy" soon turns into a passionate anonymous love affair. Her blindfold is like a security blanket and his touch is what lights a fire inside her.

Only Huss could take an eccentric whiny character and throw her into a intriguing situation and hold my interest enough to keep me glued to my phone lol. I'm actually surprised by this considering Evangeline's childish demeanor wasn't relatable enough for me to think I'd like her.
Elena Wolfe's narration is part of the reason I warmed up to Evangeline. Her voice is so smooth. She's a automatic download for me. I'm really glad I stuck this book out because I ended up loving it. Keep up the book sh#t Julie and I'll keep buying...

We’re always seeking it - the freedom to finally be happy, to finally experience the peace we know is possible. This meditation is an opportunity to remember we needn’t always be looking elsewhere for our happiness, our serenity. We’ve a joy deep within that’s always present, always accessible to us, if we can only lighten the burdens of the world to feel it. I invite you to join me in a thoughtful guided meditation to drop in and experience, even just for this half hour, your authentic joy.

Futuristic music is the backdrop for this blissfully peaceful meditation. Unlike some that have me over participating with various techniques that sometimes take away from my focus, this book simply spoke relaxing words that made me feel as if I was on a beautiful visual journey. I will be revisiting this book many times.

When the story begins, a mother duck's eggs hatch. One of the little birds is perceived by the other birds and animals on the farm as a homely little creature and suffers much verbal and physical abuse from them. He wanders sadly from the barnyard and lives with wild ducks and geese until hunters slaughter the flocks. He finds a home with an old woman. The duckling sees a flock of migrating wild swans. He is delighted and excited, but he cannot join them, for he is too young and cannot fly.

A valuable lesson for young kids. The one's who are different are often the most beautiful. Young kids love these short stories that last just long enough to hold their interest. When they are paired with a good narrator like this one, it's a win-win situation lol.

This book is the full package. A good plot, humor, great character's, and action. I loved Granny and her entrepreneurial ventures lol. Jayden the dirty talking alpha wolf definitely brought the sexy back to my book play list. Jeffrey Kafer's performance certainly contributed to kicking the heat factor up a notch. Because I haven't listened to the other book's in this series I went into this book without the character's back story. Lucky the author recaps enough of the previous books to fill in the gaps. So I had no trouble keeping up. This book could be a stand alone, but I will be buying the rest of this series because I loved it so much.
Want an awesome wolf series with HEA endings? This one's it.

Robin Williams was an American actor and comedian. Chicago-born, Williams started as a stand-up comedian in San Francisco and Los Angeles in the mid-1970s. After rising to fame as an alien called Mork in the TV sci-fi sitcom series Mork & Mindy, Williams established a career in both stand-up comedy and feature film acting. He was known for his improvisational skills. On August 11, 2014, Williams committed suicide at his home in Paradise Cay, California, at the age of 63, which his wife attributed to his struggle with Lewy body disease.

This short bio is very informative. If you're a fan like me, you probably already know most of what's said about his film career. I found the parts about his personal life the most fascinating. I had no idea Robin was with John Belushi the night before John died. This book also gives a pretty detailed account of what was going on in Robin's personal life at the time of his own death. From failed marriages to addiction issues, I now have a better understanding of what led to his demise. It was such a shock the way the lights dimmed on this vibrantly bright star. This book gets to the heart of the public Robin we love and the real Robin we only thought we knew. Kevin Theis always does such an excellent job narrating and there's no shortage of his talent in this book. I think all Robin Williams fans should add this little gem to their collection of book's.

This involves 4 people with M/M M/F menage basically that gets down to business pretty quickly. For those looking for dirty talking erotica? Look no further. The narrator has a sweet, sultry voice that's perfect for the female characters. My only complaint, there's no deeper sounding change for the male characters.

This is an excellent twist on a spooky story. My only complaint is I wish it was longer. The beginning is slow and calm while you're trying to figure out exactly what's going on. The creepy music paired with the perfect narration makes this a top quality scary listen. And even when you think you've got it figured out, you'll be surprised. Horror book lovers should definitely own this book. I was given a free copy of this book at my request and have voluntarily decided to leave this review.
