Trying to put past hurts behind you is hard when your ex is a fool, but buoyed by child support and alimony, Jo Walker is moving forward with her life, pursuing a career, raising her little girl, and trying to live in peace. She believes she has all the bases covered in her world. But what about her heart?    Rap legend Everett "Big South" McClain is divorced, too, knows all about failed relationships, and has relegated his love life to casual connections rather than pursuing something real. That is, until he lays eyes on Jo.

I loved Everett and Jo!! Their story was great! The character development was spot on and the narrator was superb. This story held my attention from beginning to end. I loved how they stuck together no matter what. It frustrates me to no end to see characters break up just because things get a bit uncomfortable. Jo and Big South had a love that burned up the pages! The sub characters even managed to make an impact on the story without taking over. I hope that book two will be placed on Audible. There was no sappy unrealistic love story here. The characters were relatable and truly interesting. Credit well spent!

Wow..... It's not often that I read or listen to a book that keeps me completely engrossed from beginning to end. This book was superb. There were so many intricate story lines that were seamlessly woven together. I loved how the story jumped back and forth between decades, but still managed to stay on topic. I've never listened to anything quite like this. I loved the ending of the book. This book was well worth the credit. Can I just say that the narrator was superb!!! Her voice managed to change from 90 year old woman to racist teenager. She was fabulous! If I didn't know any better I would have sworn that there was an entire cast of narrator's.

Jackson "The Beast" Boudreaux is rich, gorgeous, and unbelievably rude to the staff at Chef Bianca Hardwick's New Orleans restaurant. Bianca would sooner douse herself in hot sauce than cook for Jackson again, but when he asks her to cater his fundraiser, Bianca can't refuse, knowing the cash will help pay her mother's medical bills. Then Jackson makes another outrageous request: Marry me. The unconventional offer includes an enormous sum - money Bianca desperately needs, even if it does come with a contract - and a stunning ring.

Can I just say wow?! This story grabbed me from page one and completely held my attention! It was everything I didn't know I needed in a book. I love books with dual narration. I wish more authors would get on board with the idea. The male narrator had a voice like warm honey. Smooth and sweet. The females voice was also spot on for a woman from the south. I laughed out loud continuously. I cried... Then I laughed some more. I loved Jacks bossy attitude. I laughed literally every time Bianca opened her mouth. I love to hear a female lead that gives as good as she gets. The recipes given in this book pushed it to 10 stars for me. I hate that it had to end. Buy this book asap! You won't be able to stop listening.

But she plays it safe, never venturing too far from her comfort zone... not since the night she was mugged at knifepoint. Beginning a relationship with a perfect stranger is completely out of character for Leah. But something about Jason Horn strikes a chord deep within her. They couldn’t be more different. Jason is white, a streetwise New York cop haunted by his own demons.

First let me say that I love Sandra Kitt 's work. Second the narrator did an amazing job! She really put on an excellent performance. Now...
This portion may have a spoiler or three. Please read at your own risk. I hate a character that has no back bone. I understand and fully believe that you must forgive and move forward. That being said, I don't know of any woman who would just go along with the regularly scheduled program after finding out she was betrayed in the worst way by someone so close to her. That entire situation was totally unrealistic to me. I darn near put the book down in frustration listening to Gail rant and rave with total disregard for Leah's feelings. Also, I don't believe I ever heard the exact year the story was supposed to be taking place.

Let me first say that this book is not for the faint of heart. I almost put it down several times. There are several really tough topics being addressed and described in this book. Now if you can somehow get pass those cringe worthy moments you have an on the edge of your seat thriller! There was so much drama in this book!! There were murders, lies, corruption, government cover-ups long lost secrets and anything else that you can possibly think of. There was also love and true friendships. Bri was a really likable character. I was rooting for her and Kadir the entire time. The supporting characters were also a huge part of the story without taking over.

Where to begin? I stumbled upon this book while looking for a romance novel. Let me first say that Ezra Knight can do no wrong when it comes to narration of a book! He is by far one of the best to ever do it. He actually performs the stories. He doesn't just read. Now to the book, this was my first listen by this author. However, it certainly won't be my last. I can't wait to listen to everything he has on Audible. Generally, I don't listen to books without any Audible reviews , but this was a winner! Though there are multiple characters in the book, the character development is so good that you feel like you know each one of them personally. I was invested in each one of the characters lives. I actually cared about what happened to them. Baltimore and Penny were my favorites. Grab this book quick.

Beverly Jenkins is an incredibly popular author of African-American romances. The Taming of Jessi Rose is the unforgettable tale of Jessi Rose Clayton. In trying to save her family ranch from falling into the greedy hands of the wrong people, Jessi finds a unique solution-hiring outlaw railroad robber Griffin Blake as her protector. Now, with this strong, bronze-bodied man on her side, Jessi might just be tempted to mix business with pleasure.

Thomas Penny did an excellent job with the narration. He really puts on a great show. With him no dual narration is needed. I'm so glad that some Beverly Jenkins is on Audible. Jesse Rose and Griffin's story was really good. I've read it a few times before however, listening on Audible made it fantastic! There was murder, action, laughter, Love and a fierce heroine in the book. There's something for everyone.
