Private Investigator Sam Dyke turns down a job that would require skills that he doesn't have - patience, computer-literacy, tact. Then he finds that the skills he does have - tenacity, aggression, street-smarts - are exactly the ones he needs for his next case - hunting down a cold-blooded murderer who seems to know what his every step will be.

It started out like any other morning on the train - until I became mesmerized by the guy sitting across the aisle. He was barking at someone on his phone like he ruled the world. Who did the stuck-up suit think he was...God? Actually, he looked like a god. That was about it.

I love Joe Arden!!! He is so funny, witty and humorous. He had me at "maybe I should buy her a thank you gift" "a car"...lol. I'm such a big fan of Joe Arden. I've listened to so many of his books and the humor and angst when he narrates move me. I'm also a fan of Penelope Ward and Vi Keeland so I took a chance. Lots of humor and yes sexy sex scenes too. I gave the performance 4 stars because of Joe!!!!

Will he consent to forever? I know that he loves me, that's not the problem. And I know that he'll be there for me. But he hasn't mentioned forever. Not only that, but he refuses to tell his mother. Some scars run too deep, and this one is the deepest of all. I have everything on the line. To lose him now would be to lose it all.

I enjoyed this series and Kirsten Leigh did a great job as Livy and the handsome Hunter. Throughout the series and books I enjoyed the characters, angst, villainy, and love and happiness. This was a fun series and held my interest throughout each book. Nice when the girl next door gets the rich handsome guy. Thanks for some great stories Ms. Summers. 👍👍

His ex-fiancé won't let him go. Stupid me. I thought life would get easier once Hunter admitted that he needed me. So what could go wrong? Blaire. That's what. His ex-fiancé is a crazy b*tch with a capital B. She doesn't like another woman going after "her" man. She's vowed to slice me out of the equation. Physically. And then something happens. Something that might make Hunter do as Blaire wants, and cut me out of his life forever.

I am liking this series more each book. Blaire was such a nutcase. She lost it and finally got what was coming to her. I'm at Book 4 finally and Kirsten Leigh did a fantastic narrator job with this series all by herself. The angst, emotion and love came thru her narration. Hunter and Olivia are finding their HEA. Olivia is a rock and a sweetheart. And I liked that Hunter really loved her and fought for her too. When I started this series I was on the fence, but each book gets better due to great narration and writing.

Mr. Carlisle is looking for an admin. Apply within. I'm way overqualified, but the economy doesn't care. After six months of job searching, I'm flat broke and mostly desperate. Rent is due in a week, my roommate sucks and is ready to toss me out, and I need an answer - fast! >Nothing prepared me for the man in the suit. Not two steps into the office and my panties burst into flame. The word "handsome" doesn't do him justice. Lucifer would slap him a high-five.

I am still debating if I like this series. Its interesting but there's too many cliffhanger books. The narrator is good, writing is cool and story is very different and its holding my interest. I am holding out for the next chapter. I do like the narrator but sometimes I hate when these stories are dragged out into 4 or 5 books. I've read better series and its not bad.

I was trolling the romance library looking for a new, hot, sexy and different story. Found it here. And Jacob Morgan didn't let me down as usual. I loved this book and the narration. I'f you're an audible junkie like me, you know how passionate, playful, and sexy Jacob Morgans voice is. Audacious!!! He was yummy in this book and I loved it and the story. Pleasantly surprised and worth 5 stars and more than 1 credit. Deliciously narrated and written. I freaking need more like this one. 💥💥💥💥 Well done Tessa.

And let's not forget about Lola. I hadn't heard her before but eventually I really warmed up to her style and she and Jacob held this one together awesomely. I would definitely listen to her again.

I love you Muffy/ Erin Mallon. You are an epic narrator, especially when you're paired with Webber, Arden, Clarke and Morgan. Nice ending to the story but I really wanted to hear more of Sam Crowley. He's got to be Zachary Webber aka Jacob Morgan. But Crowley's voice at the end just wasn't enough. That man could narrate a boring fishing book and I'd listen to it..
M. Never has some hot and steamy stories that will have you having hot flashes if you're not careful!!! 😉

What a sweet story. The narration was good too. I loved that Angelina got her come uppance....she was such a winey witch! And Ryan's mother had the heart of a dead fish...This was my first in this series but I enjoyed the writing, the narrators and the HEA!!! I will be listening to another book in this series since they have the same narrators. They are new to me but I liked them. I like this author. She has some very good light romances then some really good intense romances.
