Every hero, even the accidental ones, has a beginning. Silas' radical theory that drafters are not replaying time as much as they are temporarily sliding into an alternate universe has never been well-received, but frankly, the darling of Opti's research has enough clout not to care until a professor with a grudge tries to put a permanent end to it.

Ok, I must say I did not think I would like it, but the story is captivating and it just hooked me in. I am excited to see what comes next with Perry Reed. This is so different than the Hollows with Rachel, Ivy, Trent, and the rest from the world of the Hollows, but it really does have an interesting start. I am willing to give this series a try.

This is the story two troubled souls, Colt and Cheyenne that somehow are the healing become what the other needs to heal. True love blooms. This story has the right mix of angst and suspense to keep you on the edge wondering what will happen. I love a good story with some hot and steamy romance; this has the just right mix of it. This my first book by this author and I can’t wait to download book #2 in the series. Marcy Sterling is a very believable narrator & made the book even better.

The year is 1992, and no one on the rock music scene is hotter than Kiro Manning, the lead singer of Slacker Demon. With a multi-platinum record, total ownership of the Billboard charts, sold-out concerts, and sinful amounts of money, Kiro can have anything - and anyone - he wants.

This is a beautiful story even though we know that for Kiro and Emily their HEA did not last forever, but that is what gives this story credibility, it’s so realistic. Life is not always perfect but it does often have some very beautiful elements. Kiro had a very hard start on life and this insight lets you know why he is the way he is, not perfect just a man with flaws, but with some very redeeming qualities. He loved Emily with all of his heart and that is what Emily wanted really, to be loved and treasured. Even after her accident and she was no longer perfect, in Kiro’s eyes she was still perfect and he continued to love her. This brought tears to my eyes. This may be a novella but it carries a big impact. If you are a fan or just starting to read these books, you have got to get this novella, I was not disappointed. The narration of the story was great as always and the Abbi Glines is a talented author. This was well worth the money.

In The Witch with No Name, Kim Harrison brings back her wildly popular heroine for one final, epic battle. Rachel Morgan's come a long way from the klutzy runner fleeing a bad job. She's faced vampires and werewolves, banshees, witches, and soul-eating demons. She's crossed worlds, channeled gods, and accepted her place as a day-walking demon. She's lost friends and lovers and family, and an old enemy has become something much more.

OMG, this was the best ending ever. Kim Harrison you know how to end a series. This book really tied up all the questions I had. I have been wanting to see Rachel and Ivy find their HEA for a long time. I really hate this is coming to an end because I have enjoyed all 13 installments. This one is a winner with me. I was really a little choked up at the end. I am going to star reading all 13 again starting with #1 in the series. This has been a roller coaster ride and it was fun!!!! I have to do it again!

Everyone in Rosemary Beach thinks they know how Rush Finlay and Blaire Wynn fell in love. But Rush is back to tell his side of the story... Rush has earned every bit of his bad-boy reputation. The three-story beach house, luxury car, and line of girls begging for time between his sheets are the envy of every guy in Rosemary Beach, and Rush handles it all with the laid-back cool of a rock star’s son. All he needs are his best friend, Grant, and his sister, Nan.

This was steamy hot and so good! Makes me want to find myself a bad boy! I have just fallen in love with the folks in Rosemary Beach. I am telling you...you will not be able to stop with just one book from this author she is totally awesome! I just can't get enough. The minute a new book comes out I get it...usually have it on pre-order!!! I started this one about 1:00am just to hear a bit. Almost did not get any sleep. Finally I had to get a few minutes of rest, and started again with a cup of coffee and making breakfast. I don't what was hotter or sweeter my coffee of Rush! You will just have to get this one and find out. This was worth my money!

Witch and day-walking demon Rachel Morgan knows magic - earth, ley line, even the forbidden demon magic - and that knowledge has saved her life more than once. But now something - or someone - is attacking Cincinnati and the Hollows, causing spells to backfire or go horribly wrong while living vampires attack humans and Inderlanders alike. The pressures build when the city is quarantined to contain the unreliable magic, and Rachel must stop the attacks before the undead vampire masters who keep the rest of the undead under control are lost and it becomes all-out supernatural war.

I have not written a review in a long time. I could not wait to write this one. Rachel and Trent are finally together and this book has set the stage for an epic ending to the series. Every thing has come full circle. Too sad this is only going to be 13 books in this series and this is #12. This is a great listen and I am about to start round two. I listen to this book in 2 days it is that good. I totally loved the introduction of the new elements. I can't say I can pick a favorite book in the serious because I have been hooked from the start. Not only to is listen to the audio but read the books as well. The audio adds a wonderful element. The narration is on point and this makes it hard to but this book down. There are a few authors that I just have to take a vacation day to enjoy the books and Kim Harrison is one of the authors for me. This book did not disappoint!!!!! What else can I say, this is so good and Trent is so sexy! Wow!

It's Christmas in Half-Moon Hollow and newly turned vampire Iris Scanlon-Calix wants to make Gigi's first visit home from college as normal and special as possible. It's taken months for Iris to work up the nerve to spend time around her baby sister after her vampire transition, so she enlists help from Jane Jameson and Company to keep her blood-thirst under control and assure Gigi's safety. Gigi, on the other hand, has problems of her own, including the demise of her relationship with high school sweetheart, Ben, and a looming job interview with Ophelia Lambert, the scariest potential employer in the Hollow.

Most of all I want to know who the cute vampire was that surprise kissed Gigi. OK, I am going to have to purchase book 2 because Half Moon Hollows book 2.5 was terrific.

I absolutely love a story where the heroine is strong, independent and realistic. Faith has all of those qualities (Girl Power) and flawless. In fact I just wanted to shake her at time. Faith is no wimpy girl. She can kick some serious butt. Now add into that that this story has romantic elements and a sexy male lead (well there are several very sexy male characters) and bad guys that you just love to hate. There are two very sexy guys who want Faith and she has a choice to make. This alone would make a great story line, but these folks are shape-shifter: werecats. If you like authors like Karen Marie Moning (Fever Series), Kim Harrison (The Hollows Series) Christine Feehan, well let’s just say you are going to love Rachel Vincent and this series. I actually purchased this a while back and listen to it while waiting on the releases from some of my favorite authors. Now Rachel Vincent is one of favorite authors. This book gets 5 stars from me and I have several of my friends reading this series now! Did I mention that I have actually listened to this at least two or three times, it’s that good!

Bella Andre, has done it again. This one is a hit with me. This story starts out smoking hot and I don't mean the heat from the fires. This story also develops into somewhat of a surprise for me. I expected a great romance, but what I did not expect was suspense or a crazy killer on the loose. I could not put this one down.

Maya Jackson is the female lead who is immediately attracted to the hot sexy Logan Cain. These two have a brief encounter and six months later, they meet again and sparks really start to fly. It was really fun seeing the physical attraction between Maya and Logan turn into to something deeper. I am about the listen to this one again, it’s that good!

Nestled on the Oregon coast is a small town of rocky beaches and rugged charm. Locals love the land’s unspoiled beauty. Developers see it as a potential gold mine. When newcomer Hank Cooper learns he’s been left an old friend’s entire beachfront property, he finds himself with a community’s destiny in his hands. Cooper has never been a man to settle in one place, and Thunder Point was supposed to be just another quick stop. But Cooper finds himself getting involved with the town. And with Sarah Dupre, a woman as complicated as she is beautiful.

I have become a fan of Robin Carr. If you liked the Virgin River series you will like the world of Thunder Point too. Carr has a way of mixing romance and a great story and I have come to expect this from her novels. This one is no exception, the wright amount of character development and hot steamy romance to make me wish the next installment was already available for download. Therese Plummer shines as the narrator and made this audio come to life. She is really great with the male and female voices. Sometimes a narrator can kill a good story, Plummer just adds to this one. In my opinion Carr and Plummer are a great match. I promise you will love hearing about Sarah and Cooper who are the main characters. Then there are several side supporting characters with equally blooming romances. I just can't say enough I loved this one.
