Over a decade after his estrangement from his ex, Chase returns to Finley Dairy to celebrate Mason's sister's engagement. But being back at the place where his fondest memories are--the place where he and Mason laughed, played, and loved--quickly ropes Chase back into those feelings all over again, reminding him of the flame he could never extinguish.

There are some audio glitches that make the transitions confusing and a couple spots where there’s the same segment repeated - editing issue - but Michael Pauley brings the characters to life beautifully and it’s a sweet story.

Titan was one of the nation's most loved and respected Heroes, until an infidelity scandal tore his image and family apart. After decades spent out of the limelight, Owen Daniels has decided to take up the mantle of Titan once again to try and make amends for his years away. Unfortunately, the Titan Scandal is still common knowledge, and no Hero team wants such a polarizing figure.

This is a somewhat oblique look at the universe of the SuperPowereds and it follows Titan as he renters the hero business.

Logan Moore is finally ready to come out of the closet. His days of playing football are far behind him, he has graduated from the Culinary Institute of America (CIA), and his bakery, Moore Delicious, is finally in the black. Although he spends more time talking to his cats than he does people, he technically has time for a social life now that he has hired two new employees. In short, Logan is completely out of excuses to stay in the closet, where it is warm and cozy and he never has to worry about how to dress, what to say, or who is watching.

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.

Okay, so I listened to two very similar books with similar themes and walked away with totally different feelings about the heroine. I adored Sailor's character in a way you would a family member, she's ... crud... "spunky" sounds so painful but that's the only word I can think of. I really enjoyed this step out of my usual genre...

Three major reasons to not waste your money:

1) cliffhanger ending
2) obnoxiously voiced Indian character
3) obnoxiously stereotypical portrayal of Indian people

The story is okay (if based on a somewhat ridiculous premise), the narration has some parts that are really painful to listen to, but the worst is if you're going to pay for a Beauty and the Beast story (and suffer through the inspid characters and lackluster narration) it's a rip off to cliffhanger it.

In this fast, fun, and dead-sexy male/male new-adult caper from multiaward-winning author Josh Lanyon, twentysomething Jefferson Blythe gets lost, gets found, falls in love, and comes out…all in the span of one wild summer. After his first relationship goes disastrously awry, Jeff Blythe uses his savings to tour Europe—the old-fashioned way. Armed with his grandfather's 1960 copy of Esquire's Europe in Style, Jeff sets off looking for adventure but finds much, much more than he bargained for….

Look, anytime you pick up a Josh Lanyon book you know you're going to roll your eyes at some of the plot elements, his characters are as charming as they are bumbling. Just suspend disbelief and go with it and you'll enjoy the ride.

Ben Rivers always was a showman. He won awards in 4-H and rodeo competitions from the time he could walk, and he’s happiest in the spotlight. So when he got the chance to be a star - in porn - he took it. He still loves Montana and everything about being a cowboy, but when news of his alternate identity leaks out, he figures he’s lost the town’s goodwill forever. Clyde’s Corner would never accept an openly gay cowboy, even a hometown boy born and bred.

It's been almost a year since 18-year-old Ella Rodriguez was in a car accident that left her crippled, scarred, and without a mother. After a very difficult recovery, she's been uprooted across the country and forced into the custody of a father that abandoned her when she was a young child. If Ella wants to escape her father's home, and her awful new stepfamily, she must convince her doctors that she's capable, both physically and emotionally, of living on her own.

Ranch hand Roe Davis absolutely never mixes business with pleasure - until he runs into his boss, Travis Loving, at the only gay bar within 200 miles. Getting involved with the ranch owner is a bad idea, but Roe's and Travis's bedroom kinks line up against one another like a pair of custom-cut rails. As long as they're both clear this is sex on the side, no relationship, no interfering with the job, they could make it work

It's difficult to phrase this, but some of the scenes are so ridiculously graphic that it's not possible to believe real people are involved. The story arc is good but it was trying a bit too hard.
