Alec. Christine. Danny. This is how you say our names. Danger is our drug of choice, the triangle our addiction. Alec. Golden boy with diamonds in his eyes. Christine.

Oooohhh...this new world that Julie and Johnathan are creating is enticing! I am intrigued to hear what happens next...this definitely reminds me somewhat of The Company, which is part of the reason I love it so much...guns, action, suspense, hot sex...you know...your usual hum-drum romance - haha! Not at all! It's so good...their characters are everything and I cannot wait to hear more from Christine, Danny and Alec!

Love, love, love Tad and Ava and Luke was new for me...but he pulled me right in with his South African accent. Bring me more!

I’m just a simple girl who likes dessert. And sexy men. And social media. So starting an anonymous video channel called The Sexpert as a side hustle to make up for my low-paying marketing job at Le Man Magazine seemed like a perfectly sensible career decision. Until we went viral, my boss accused my anonymous personality of stealing his idea, and now my super sexy new boyfriend, Andrew, is out to get me. Her. Me. Whatever.

OMG...I laughed out loud while listening to this book...sooo great!! It's funny, sweet, witty and engaging. And the narrators BRING these characters to life!! I love Tad Branson and Anne Pepperidge was a first for me, but she was perfect for Eden. This rom-com is a new endeavor for JA Huss and Johnathan McClain...straying from their usual dark, suspenseful and action-packed stories...but I loved it! A very easy and enjoyable listen with a lot of wit, I didn't want to stop. Definitely worth a credit or a purchase!

Oaklee Ryan needs a boyfriend, but not for any of the reasons you might think. It’s a simple request. But the girl is not so simple. Oaklee Ryan is a pragmatist. She lives in reality, she deals with facts, and she’s goal-oriented. So when she paid a visit to Jordan Wells asking for a game, calling it, “The Boyfriend Experience”, he thought he knew what she was getting at. Wining, dining, maybe a date to a wedding to appease her meddling mother. Lawton Gabriel took this game as a favor to his friend. It only took him five minutes to regret it. Oaklee Ryan is insane.

Another great book in the Jordan's Game series...this is a fun story...nothing super deep or dark or angsty. But, as always, great characters by JA Huss, I love Law and Oakley! And LOVE LOVE LOVE the return of the Shrikes!!! I have really enjoyed all of the stories in Jordan's Game and I CANNOT wait to finally hear his story next in Play Dirty!! Thanks Julie for another awesome story in your web of worlds...I love the details and nuances and how they all intertwine.

The narrators were pretty good (well...Teddy is ALWAYS awesome, another reason I can't wait for Play Dirty!)...the only thing I really didn't like was Victoria's male voice....it just sounded too much like a woman trying to talk like a man.

I love Jamie McGuire...I have loved her since Beautiful Disaster. And this book is no different...what a wonderfully written, gripping, surprising and sweet romance. I thoroughly enjoyed the story line and the budding friendship and love of Catherine and Elliot and was completely taken off guard with the ending! Wow. The shroud of mystery throughout the story really kept me hooked. My only complaint was I didn't like the male narrator...he didn't seem to go with what I thought a young, Native American football player would sound like...he narrated the first chapter and I almost didn't keep going, but knowing it was Jamie, I kept listening. Thankfully, the female narrator has many more chapters than the male narrator and it was so worth the credit and the listen!

I'm speechless. I am a huge JA Huss fan, and some of her books I like more than others...some I LOVE and I am obsessed with and some I listen to, but I probably won't listen to them again. I knew Jordan's Game was a spin off of Taking Turns and I liked the Taking Turns series, but I didn't really know what to expect from Jordan's Game and I really wasn't anxiously waiting for this book (series) to release on Audible. But holy hell...was I wrong!

This book is so good!!! Like all of Julie's books, it's not your typical boy meets girl, falls in love, has an argument or misunderstanding, split up and then finally get back together. Her creativity and imagination with her love stories are so right on and they keep me glued to my phone to hear what happens next. I am now anxiously waiting for the rest of the series to be released so I can hear more of Jordan's Game.

And the narrators...WOW..Christian Fox SLAYED this narration. He was so good, I haven't listened to much of him, but I'll be searching his name now!!! And Teddy Hamilton and Elena Wold are always amazing and so, so good!

This is far beyond worth a credit!! Get this book, you won't be disappointed!!!

I have loved Mia's previous stories, but I wasn't taken away by this one. It moved a little slowly for me and the characters didn't fully pull me in. Although I think a big part of the problem for me was the male narration...he really threw me off. Every. Single. Word. was overly dramatic...wayyyy overly dramatic. He also sounded much older than the character should have sounded (in my mind). I didn't like his reading at all. Erin was great!

Maddie isn’t looking to be saved. She knows the only person you can count on is yourself. Her moral compass might not point true north these days - but at least she’s still standing. The military taught Tyler about loyalty. Being there for your brothers is the only thing that matters - but when it mattered most, he wasn’t.

Ava and Tad were SPECTACULAR as narrators!! I felt as if I was them...like it was my brain that was thinking and speaking...they really brought Maddie and Tyler to life for me. Perfection.

JA Huss and Johnathan McClain are a new force to be reckoned with!! I have ALWAYS loved Julie's books, so I was a bit worried throwing "some guy" ;-) into the mix...but honestly...I don't know why I was worried. These two are fire...what an awesome writing team. It is such a seamless, well written story, with unexpected twists and turns, witty humor and holy hotness sex scenes! I anxiously await what these two will bring us next through their intense, perverted and "don't give a f*ck" stories, with just the right amount of wit, humor and poignancy.

Five Aston has known Rory Shrike for as long as he can remember. He played with her in the sandbox. He went to every damn horse show just to be supportive. He helped her with her French, walked her home from school, and faked his test scores just to stay with her a little longer and not be sent off to college early. But eventually he had to move on. And so did she. Never has a second chance meant so much to a boy who loves a girl.

How much do I love Five and Princess Rory?? Sooo much! I think Five has topped my love for his Dad, #F*ckingFord! I absolutely loved this much needed love story for these two...it had me swooning, laughing hysterically (Rory F*cking Shrike!!) and on the edge of my seat with anticipation. It pulls all of the Misters together, as a prequel, and just another hot one by Ms. JA Huss!

And...sighhh....Teddy Hamilton...I am in love (ear love?) with Teddy Hamilton. He just does it for me and he always has the right tone, inflection, cadence...he is one full package :-) Anna is wonderful as well...but since Five (read: Teddy) is my boyfriend...I couldn't wait for the next chapter with him.

JA Huss can write no wrong...she is absolutely amazing and I just wait with bated breath until her next one comes out. Cannot wait for Mr. & Mrs. on audio!
