Being engaged to Alex Waters, team captain and the highest paid NHL player in the league, is awesome. How could it not be? In addition to being an amazing hockey player, he's an incurable romantic with an XL heart - and an XXL hockey stick in his pants. And he knows how to use it. Incredibly, orgasmically well. Alex is the whole package and more. Literally. Like his package is insane. Total world record holder material.

Alex and Violet and gearing up to tie the knot, but Violet can't seem to handle all the embarrassment that is destined to come with the public atrocity their mothers are planning. When a serious situation happens, Vi is forced to evaluate what's really important - protecting her propensity for nervous awkwardness or starting her life as Mrs. Alex Waters.

I am absolutely in love with Jeremy York and Emily C. Michaels as Alex and Vi. Even with the seriousness of some situations in this story, they keep the true nature of these well-developed characters throughout.

Enter Hayes Whitley. Mega-movie star. The man who has captured the hearts of millions. But I gave him mine years ago. He was my first love. He was my everything. Right until he up and left to chase his dreams without so much as a simple goodbye. When he showed up out of the blue 10 years later, I should have known to steer clear. I should have rejected his offer to take me to my ex's wedding and told him he was crazy when he suggested we act like a couple to show my ex, it's true, I could do better than him.

Oh, how I love a second chance romance. This one started out as teenage love and then took a backseat to life and life altering choices. Fast Forward many years later, Saylor comes face to face with Hays once again. only this time, she needs his help and he is wants nothing more than to right his wrong with her.

Andi Arndt and Sebastian York are legendary narrators and you can't go wrong with an audiobook by these two.

I love reading/hearing more from the original couple in the Gallo family saga. This time, it involved more from the rest of the family. This story had it all. There were serious moments, and angsty moments. I shed a few tears and laughed out loud at their antics. My heart stopped a couple of times as well.
Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell are one of my favorite audiobook pairings.

This story started off with a bang, in the literal sense. With a bomb. From there,Kelsey and Hunter teamed up to figure out who was really behind the explosion and the threats. The suspense and angst grew with every twist and turn of events unfolding. Well written characters and riveting story line, I was on the edge of my seat through the whole thing. Amy Landon narrative brought the book to life. I do recommend both the book and the audio to Ramance and Non-Romance readers alike.

Sworn enemies since the beginning of college, Lex has done everything in his power to get under Gabi's skin. Gabi just wants to do right by Wingmen, Inc., and not murder Lex in the process. Infuriation blends with infatuation, and pretty soon things begin to heat up.
Jeremy York made Lex into a sexy nerd, bringing out all the quirks one would expect with his narration. Carly Robin's portrayal of Gabi was spot on, especially with the spitfire rebellious undertone of the character's nature.

A gripping tale of two people whose childhoods were stolen through no fault of their own but they prevailed by any means necessary at times; until they meet and their lives are changed. Everything they held as truth comes into question as one tries to protect while the other tries to heal.
It's hard to describe the hotness level of this book. Aaron Shedlock does an excellent Scottish brogue. His sexy timber used for Brochan was deep and rough, with just enough menace to either draw you in or scare you away. Tracy Marks' portrayal of Lizzie took a little bit of getting used to, and I'm still on the fence. There was definitely passion, but not enough vical inflection to distinguish between the emotional ups and downs Lizzie had to have gone through. Overall, the story and narrations were well above par and made the book an exceptional read.

The first time I met Chase Parker, I didn't exactly make a good impression. I was hiding in the bathroom hallway of a restaurant, leaving a message for my best friend to save me from my awful date. He overheard and told me I was a bitch, then proceeded to offer me some dating advice. So I told him to mind his own damn business and went back to my miserable date. I couldn't help but sneak hidden glances at the condescending jerk on the other side of the room. Of course, he caught me on more than one occasion, and winked.

This was quite an entertaining, FICTIONAL story, with heavy emphasis on office romance cliches. But again, it was FICTION so it's okay to not be realistic as long as it is entertaining to the reader. Chase was obsessive and Reese was overly reserved, but it fit the story!
Don't let negative reviews persuade you to not try a book, I didn't and I am glad I trusted my own gut when it came to this story. I would read another book by this author and listen to other stories by these narrators.

Race car driver Zander Donavan, the adopted son of renown Race Car diving Champion Colton Donavan, thought he had dealt with the death of his biological mother for the last time until a mysterious box shows up on his doorstep. The very first item inside through his world into a tailspin, sending him to the brink of Destruction. In an effort to get his life back on track and to deal with the contents of the box, he escapes to an island far away from the distractions of his family and all the chaos he had created. But there seems to be a snag in his plan, namely the woman who was already stained in the house he's tasked to renovate.
Getty's life was never perfect, but her dreams has been completely shattered the day she married Ethan. In an attempt to regain her freedom she secretly files for divorce and runs as far away as she can in hopes to hide from the backlash until the divorce is final and she can start a new life. Her mom's oldest friend gives her a place to stay while she navigates her Newfound freedom on her own for the first time ever. 3 months into her journey, she runs into a snag. The snag is in the form of a man in her shower.
And so the battle begins, each with their own agenda to regain something they've lost or never had and they have to do this while learning to live together in this quaint little house on this island.
This was a very emotional and trying story for these characters, and for the reader - me. I could feel every note of anxiety, every emotional twist and turn, and every touch between these two characters. It's been awhile since a book has taken me on such a journey. I laughed, I cried, and swooned throughout this incredible book.
Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell we're the perfect choices for Xander and Getty. The way they portrayed these two brought them to life for me. It was a job very well done. I highly, highly recommend reading and listening to this book.
