Picture this - I’m ready to win back the love of my life, and I’m going big this time. We’re talking boom box, sing her name in the rain, let the whole damn neighborhood know I'm good and ready this time around. After all, if you're going to grand gesture the ever-loving hell out of a second chance, you need to pull out all the stops. There’s only one little problem. My college girlfriend isn't the one who shows up when I play my "I'll do anything to win you back" tune. The woman who flings open the second-floor window tells me my ex doesn’t live here anymore.

I usually like LB romcom books. This one did not do it for me. It's a fluke how they met. They enjoyed one another's company but difficult to be madly in love after a week. Great narrators are what kept me going. Glad it was on romantic package because I would've returned it.

Thirty days ago, my boss, Mr. Wolf of Wall Street, came to me with an offer I couldn't refuse: Sign my name on the dotted line and pretend to be his fiancée for one month. If I agreed, he would let me out of my employment contract with a "very generous" severance package. The rules were pretty simple: No intimate kissing, no actual sex. Just pretend to love each other for the press, even though I've secretly wanted to knock that sexy smirk off his face since the first day we met.

I enjoy WG books, and these narrators. I never use my credits on short novellas so I was excited that this was part of the Romance package. It was short but had humor and some steam. Glad I was able to listen. I'm anxious for a new, longer book from Whitney G.

Sullivan and Will are as close as two friends can be. Growing up in the system forced them to rely on each other, and they've become accustomed to sharing everything - including women. Now they're ready for more. To find love. To start a family. To see the dreams they've shared since childhood come true. Apparently I tick off every box on their list - brains, beauty, and sass. I never hesitate to put both men in their places - which they find sexy as hell. One problem, I'm a traditional girl, with traditional values - one man, one woman, till death do us part - kind of values.

In a nutshell, the m/f/m was not romantic nor steamy. I enjoyed chapter 29 (of 38) when it was m/m. Glad I didn't use credit as it was part of romance package. Even then I fast forwarded a lot and still didn't finish this silly book.

I've always been a good girl. I work hard, I follow the rules, I always achieve my goals. But sometimes good girls want things that aren't good for them. Or someone who isn't good for them. Like their new boss. And sometimes they do very bad things to get his attention. Like sell their virginity in an auction. Who knew he'd be so very, very mad? Maybe this was not my best laid plan....

After spending the last 10 years in prison, Zak, former DAMC president, has a few priorities: to reconnect with his "brothers", to get drunk, and to get laid. Not necessarily in that order. When he spots a stunning woman in the clubhouse and mistakes her for one of the club's strippers, those priorities get a bit skewed. Sophie has no idea what happened to her life. One minute she's totally focused on building her bakery business, and the next? She's delivering a cake to the Dirty Angels motorcycle club's "homecoming" celebration for a member who just got out of prison.

MC book needs alpha narration. This was not the right narrator for this book. Now about the book. Mistaken identity results in sex as she's delivering a cake from her shop. The next day results in anal. Seriously? No, not for me. Not worth a credit.

I'm not a good man, and I've never pretended to be. I don't believe in goodness or God or any happy ending that isn't paid for in advance. What do I believe in? Money. Sex. Macallan 18. They have words for men like me - playboy. Womanizer. Skirt chaser. My brother used to be a priest, and he only has one word for me: sinner.

For those of you: be warned that this has many religious and forbidden taboos that may not agree with your religion. Sean is the brother of Tyler, the former priest (book 1). Sean has disavowed his faith and in God. He is rich, hot, sexy, ruthless and no doubt a sinner. This is a very steamy, intensely erotic listen. "I'm a sinner with a dimpled smile and perfect hair, and I know how to make sin feel like heaven." Narration was off the charts fantastic! LOVED it all. Yes, worth the sinner credit!

Cooper Cruz knows what it means to be surrounded and bound by family. Loyalty, brotherhood, and protection are all learned, earned, and respected by him and the Ravage Motorcycle Club family he grew up in. At the same, he's a man having fun and living the life he has always envisioned, until a trip to Florida changes everything. Bristyl Daniels knows what it means to be smothered and bound by family. Bonds run deep with her father and all the members of the Sinister Sons Motorcycle Club she has grown up in.

Two different MC come together. After she meets and falls for Cooper, Bristal is threatened by her family to marry someone from their MC or become the club whore. Seriously, I have issues when any man or woman tells another what they can or cannot do with their body. The sex between Cooper and Bristal was okay. I was hoping for steamier. The MC violence was very graphic. I will not be continuing this series. I loved the narrators but I did not like the story. Not worth my credit.

They call me Zen-man, the cool-headed one, the protector. I keep an eye out for everyone, take them in, find them homes. They think I’m the calm and collected one, the self-assured one, the one who knows the way. They think they see me. They think they know me. But they’re all wrong, because inside I’m broken. I have a jagged hole in my soul I can’t fix, a festering blackness. I’ve been to the pits of hell, and nobody comes back unscathed. Life in foster care fucked me up, and now a thread is all that’s holding me together.

Since Sebastian York was one of the narrators, I was expecting hot. I didn't get it. This was so dark with past drama from both Zane and Dakota. She was patient with him while he was extremely battling his past. He was also distraught about his sister (which we never saw him connect with). Instead he just continued his drunken stupor. To me, this was boring, and these characters are so young 21 with deep rooted issues. Not worth my credit even with SY as narrator.
