Ian is...just my best friend. We're extremely close, stuck so deep inside a Jim-and-Pam-style friendzone everyone at work assumes we're a couple - that is until one day, word spreads through the teacher's lounge that he's single. Fair game. Suddenly, it's open season on Ian. He should be reveling in all the newfound attention, but to our mutual surprise, the only attention he seems to want is mine. He's turning our formerly innocent nightly chats into X-rated phone calls. Our playful banter sports a new, dangerous edge.

Teddy Hamilton is one of my favorites. I can listen to him all the time.
Luci Bell was pretty good. First time listening to her narration and I think she did good at portraying Sam.

I like R.S. Grey's books for fun easy listening audibles. This one was not one of my favorites, but I also had to finish it. It had it's funny moments and some predictable ones. I didn't understand the non-kissing moments, I mean I get holding off the sex, but the kissing...come on Ian. Also, Sam was so into Ian, but when it came to him trying to be with her she pushed him away or acted like she was not into him like she wasn't drooling over him.

Luna Allen has done some things she would rather no one ever know about. She also knows that, if she could go back in time, she wouldn’t change a single thing. With three sisters she loves, a job she (mostly) adores, and a family built up of friends she’s made over the years, Luna figures everything has worked out the way it was supposed to. But when one of those secrets involves the man who signs her paycheck, she can’t find it in her to regret it. Despite the fact that he’s not the friendliest man in the world. Or the most patient.

First off, I really enjoy listening to Callie Dalton and Gomez Pugh was the perfect voice for the the gruff Rip.

I always enjoy reading Zapata's books, but for me, this one did not resonate the same feelings and want as her other books have. I really thought there was going to be more depth into the lie. Towards the end I started to get annoyed of Luna, once at the hospital for pushing Rip and then after that anything to do with Rip and him feeling "guilty".
I did like when she stood up for herself and took charge of the situation she was put in. That was awesome.
It was a good book, but not one of hers that I would listen to again like I do the other ones I own.

Escape to Scotland in this funny, heartfelt audio-first romance about reconnecting with an old love...and discovering new passion. After her boyfriend runs off to a Buddhist monastery, Molly is stuck with an extra ticket for a bed-and-breakfast trip through the Scottish Highlands. Not wanting to waste the fare, she sells it in an online auction...where it's bought by a man from her past. Now she's stuck rooming with the guy who broke her heart - someone she's never been able to forget.

I listened to this book over a course of a couple days. I like Ava Erickson's narration. I think she is easy to listen too. The book was so-so. It had some funny moments in the beginning, but it was also a little cheesy. It's not a very deep story, but it was cute.

Three months ago, governess Serena Barton was let go from her position. Unable to find new work, she's demanding compensation from the man who got her sacked: a petty, selfish, swinish duke. But it's not the duke she fears. It's his merciless man of business - the man known as the Wolf of Clermont. The formidable former pugilist has a black reputation for handling all the duke's dirty business, and when the duke turns her case over to him, she doesn't stand a chance. But she can't stop trying....

I always enjoy Rosalyn Landor as a narrator.

I like being taken back to the beginning and finding out what happened in the story before Duke story. I actually listened to that one first and then listened to this one, so connecting the relationships made more sense.
I thought Serena was a great character and she did not back down for what she thought was right or what she deserved. I was happy to see that the Wolf of Clermont wasn't to harsh and had a heart in there.

Miss Minerva Lane is a quiet, bespectacled wallflower, and she wants to keep it that way. After all, the last time she was the center of attention, it ended badly - so badly that she changed her name to escape her scandalous past. Wallflowers may not be the prettiest of blooms, but at least they don't get trampled. So when a handsome duke comes to town, the last thing she wants is his attention.

As usual, I enjoy Rosalyn Landor's narration.
I thought this was a fun story. I like the fact she wasn't your average beauty, but the Duke saw past that. They both had things they had to work past and I have to admit there was many times I thought she should just admit her past and a whole bunch of things could have happened earlier.

Awkward? Maybe. But how else is a good girl going to find out if she likes being naughty? I might be sweet as cherry pie, but I'm also bold and damn curious. And Gabe is charming, trustworthy, aces at seduction (or so I hear) and - bonus! - willing to give me lessons. But to guarantee it won’t ruin our friendship, I have some specific requirements for his instruction. I want these classes to be hypothetical more than hands-on. So what if he’s hella sexy? I can handle that, no problem.

I really like Erin Mallon and Joe Arden as narrators. I will choose to listen to books more often when they are the ones narrating.

I did enjoy the story as well. It was a sweet story, but the fact they had difficulty understanding each other even when it was obvious. Communication! I get that they were good friends, but how much touchy touchy can you get without realizing that the person is liking it a lot. It was fun, I will read the next one..

Though the daughter of an earl, Sophie has been relegated to the role of servant by her disdainful stepmother. But now, spinning in the strong arms of the debonair and devastatingly handsome Benedict Bridgerton, she feels like royalty. Alas, she knows all enchantments must end when the clock strikes midnight.

First off I really enjoy Rosalyn Landor's narration. Her voice is so easy to listen to.

The story was pretty close to Cinderella, which was good and bad. There were so many points where I thought the book could have ended. It was pretty long for the story line that it was based on. I think that a lot of heartache could have been missed if she would have just told him her story.

Leaving one widow behind is unfortunate. Leaving three widows behind is just plain despicable. Oil heiress Kate Steele knew her not-so-dearly departed husband was a con man, but she's shocked that Conrad racked up two more wives without divorcing her first. The only remnant of their miserable marriage she plans to keep is their lakeside cabin in Bootleg, Texas. Unfortunately, she's not the only woman with that idea.

I enjoyed this book and the story line. It did seem a little longer then it needed to be. And by the end of mystery it was very quick to end the story. I really like Carolyn Brown’s books and Donna Postel’s narration is always great, with her different character voices she does. I liked the twist with this one, casual who dun it book.

Clam jam. Definition: the female equivalent of a cock block. Example: You're chatting with a guy you're interested in, and your friend comes along and lays claim to him. That's my life - except it's worse. My friend who keeps "jamming" me is my gay roommate. Fact: He went home with three - yes, three - of the guys I had been so sure were into me. Fact: He's really pissing me off. I'll never manage to get a boyfriend before the age of 50 if he keeps this up. Fact: Secretly, I wonder what it would be like if he weren't gay.

I like the concept of this book and the narration is good, but it's super long and I keep waiting for him to admit that he's not gay. It has some funny parts, but it keeps going on and on and on....I think it could still have a great story without being so long of the same ideas for so many of chapters. I also really like Jeremy York as a narrator, but in this book he's kind of creepy and the way he's reading the character makes the guy sound a little stalker and like he would be watching her through a window.
First time listening to Elizabeth, she does a good job at the different male and female voices.

Something has always felt slightly off in Meghan’s life, ever since her father disappeared before her eyes when she was six. She has never quite fit in at school…or at home. When a dark stranger begins watching her from afar, and her prankster best friend becomes strangely protective of her, Meghan senses that everything she’s known is about to change. But she could never have guessed the truth--that she is the daughter of a mythical faery king and is a pawn in a deadly war.

This was a different story line then I thought it was going to be. I did not expect a lot of characters coming in from different tales. I liked the story line of having Summer and Winter Faeries, but thought that having the Summer faeries basically be from the Summer Nights tales was too much. The search for her brother and her fight to not give up was encouraging. Khristine Hvam was easy to listen to, but at some points her voices got a little crazy. I swear one of them sounded like Gullom! It was painful.
