Savage Rising by Katie Reus
Savage Rising is the 2nd installation in the new Redemption Harbor Series. I love this series! This can be read as a stand alone, but I think it always is great to know the characters and some back story. This story brings us Zac Savage and Olivia Carter. She has had a sketchy past but now as a mom is determined to lead a good life for her young daughter Valencia. Her past has returned to blackmail her and threaten her daughter. Zac is former military badass who works for Redemption Harbor and is brought in to be her undercover partner. The sparks fly, the attraction is real and the story is great. I can't recommend this enough. I could not put it down! Sophie Eastlake is once again the narrator for Katie's book.

Erica’s time away from her pack was just supposed to be fun. Then she met Hudson. Instead of the no-strings attached fling, she ended up falling for him. But they’d promised each other that they’d keep things casual. Instead of risking her heart, she ran. Now she’s pregnant - and he’s determined to claim her. But the last thing she wants is to be an obligation to him. Erica could never be a duty to Hudson, but for some reason that’s what she thinks she is. He tried to go slow, to give her space - so he wouldn’t scare her off. Now he realizes that was a mistake.

WOLF'S MATE By Katie Reus
Wolf's Mate is the 7th addition to the Crescent Moon series and it is a welcome one! I really enjoyed the characters of Hudson and Erica. Erica visiting his pack. Since they have a tremendous amount of chemistry, their no obligation affair catches fire and has both of them secretly falling for the other and wanting to change the rules. She panics and runs back to her pack. Read the book to see how they work it out. Katie Reus has very fleshed out characters that makes you care about them. There is a solid story line with great flow. Jeffrey Kafer is the narrator and he is always excellent!

INNOCENT TARGET by Katie Reus
Innocent Target is the 4th installment in the Redemption Harbor series. I really enjoy series books, as we get to catch up with previous story characters in the new story. Katie has a such a way of telling a story to make you care about all of them. This is another great story. It has suspense, heat, well developed characters, and a plausible story.
This one brings us the story of Hadley and Axel. She is a college student that is going to be a veterinarian. She has newly discovered family in Brooks and Douglas Alexander, her brother and father. Axel is a former FBI agent that is now a hired gun. When he has a message come across his desk mistakenly that is a contract to kill Hadley he goes to warn her and ends up protecting her and falling for her. I do not like to give to much a way when I review books so that is all I will say. Sophie Eastlake once again does a fantastic job as narrator for Katie's work.

Before five years ago, Gabriel had never met Vega, but he knows how she's going to die. He knows he'll be involved, unless he can make sure they never meet, never cross paths, so that his vision will never come true. So he left his pack behind, joined the Stavros pack and was determined to never let that future play out. To never meet her at all. Fate had other plans - and she walked right into his life when he least expected it.

GUARDIAN OF DARKNESS by Katie Reus
Finally Gabriel and Vega get their book! This is the 7th book of the Darkness series and I have liked them all, but this is by far my favorite! Gabriel is the Guardian of the Stavros pack and also Vegas bodyguard, Vega is the daughter of Finn the Alpha and his wife Lyra, a vampire. She is all grown up now and has a secret job in the black ops she has been training in for about a year. Gabriel had a vision forced on him by a seer where Vega is killed after they mate so he is will not make her his own. I do not like to give too much away, but this is such an enjoyable read. These 2 have chemistry, great banter between them, and the action is nonstop. This book is narrated by the Jeffrey Kafer, who has such a great voice.

Dangerous Witness by Katie Reus
Dangerous Witness is the 3rd book in the Redemption Harbor series. This book can be read as a stand alone book, but would be enjoyed most with the history of the other two books. This series is about a group of friends and each book focuses on one member of the group. They start the Redemption Harbor Consulting. They did this to help people who are in trouble but cannot afford help or to go to the authorities.
This book brings us the story of Brooks Alexander and Darcy Cooper. Brooks is the man who broke Darcy's heart when he broke up with her when he thought she was able to be bribed with 2 million to stay away from him by his father. Fate throws them together again when Darcy who is a wedding planner overhears something she should not have while prepping her sister's wedding. That throws Brooks and Darcy together again to protect her. Of course they work their way back together after numerous problems. I am not going to give anything else away, I did enjoy this story very much. Once again, Sophie Eastlake narrates for Katie and does an awesome job.

Tempting Danger by Katie Reus
This is the story of Alena Brennan and Andre Makarov. We 1st met them in the book Retribution. You don't have to have read it before this one though. Alena used Andre to get in position to take revenge on his father for the murder of her parents. Andre broke off with her even though he loved her after finding out she used him. Alena fell in love with him at the start. When they are in the same vicinity again Andre finds out that Alena is pregnant. This is a very enjoyable story. This book is narrated by Jeffrey Kafer who has a most enjoyable voice to listen to. I always enjoy a book by Katie Reus. I highly recommend this one.

This is a continuation of the O'Connor family. This story has Nolan and Miranda Flores, who have been friends for some years. Miranda finds herself telling her parents that she is engaged and then needs to find someone to be her fiance while her parents are in town for the holidays. Nolan readily agrees to do it. Of course when the town finds out they are engaged, the fake engagement gets complicated fast. Nolan loves and is fine with that. They have a tragedy to deal with and Nolan is there for Miranda. This was a good story that I very much enjoyed. I always know I will get a story that will keep me engrossed the whole time with Katie. Sophie Eastlake is once again the narrator of Katie's book.

Charlie thought Andrew was different from other males, that what they shared was real - that their connection was the rare mating pull. But a true mate wouldn't have ghosted on her the way he did. So no matter what he wants, she's not playing his games. To capture her heart for good, he'll have to prove he's worthy of a second chance. Even if that means he has to give up everything, including his pack.

FALLING FOR HIS MATE by Katie Reus
This is the latest installation of the Crescent Moon Series by Katie Reus also known as Savannah Stuart. This is a second time romance story of Andrew and Charlie (Charlotte). Andrew screwed up and let fear separate them, realizes his mistake and wants her back. She has to work her way back to forgiving him. This series is always a great read. This one has Jeffrey Kafer narrating, he has an awesome voice, I could listen to him read anything. I did think this was a very short story.

Would you listen to Resurrection again? Why?

RESURRECTION
Resurrection is Katie Reus' newest book that is based in Redemption Harbor. Once again, Katie has written a great book with well developed characters. This storyline kept me engrossed through out the book. This story is about Skye and Colt, and about second chances. I very much enjoyed this book and am looking forward to more in the Redemption Harbor series. Sophie Eastlake is once again narrator. She does a great job with voices. I received an audible book for my honest review.

Would you consider the audio edition of It's Me Again, Baby to be better than the print version?

It's Me Again, Baby by Katie Reus
I love this series with it being based in a year round Christmas town. This is the 3rd story of the series. Sometimes a novella can feel rushed, but Katie has a knack of doing them well! This is the story of Maquire and Samantha. She had broken his heart years ago, and this is their path back together. He needs a house and is shocked when “Sam” shows up to be his realtor. It doesn't take them long to realize they still have heat and attraction. I enjoy the second chance stories and getting beyond the problems. Once again Sophie Eastlake is the narrator, she does her usual great job.
