Owen has a strict policy when he heads in to save a company - no feelings, no getting close. But when he meets Addy, his rules get thrown out the window. This sweet, safe listen is a perfect for a quick listen. Adele brings just the right amount of steam to this romance without making it too cheesy.

Randi Johnson's narration is perfect - I don't think I could picture Owen with any other voice now that I've heard Randi's gruff, fine as whiskey tone.

*****This is book one in a trilogy*****

Skye Warren pulled me in from the beginning with this taboo tale of forbidden love and lust between Liam (a bodyguard/guardian) and Samantha (child violin prodigy). Liam's heartbreaking past of growing up with an abusive parent haunts him and has caused him to be convinced that he is unable to love - yet he has fallen in love with the violin playing prodigy, Samantha, that he has taken care of since her loveless father died when she was extremely young. There is someone after Samantha and Liam will do anything (and everything) to keep her safe - but will their love grow and survive no matter how much Liam fights it? ****Please take note that nothing happens until she turns 18**** The age gap doesn't bother me, there is nothing vulgar in my eyes. The way Skye wrote this book, it's completely flawless how she weaves this love story about 2 individuals with pasts wrapped in hurtful darkness. There is mystery, suspense and this book will leave you with a longing - I'm usually not a fan of cliffhangers but Skye stole my heart with this one. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book.
Teddy brings Liam to life perfectly - his voice is like a fine scotch and fits this alpha male character like no other. I could listen to his voice all day. Grace's voice fits the personality of Samantha fantastically. It's like this story was written just for these two narrators - I don't think anyone else would fit it.

This is a compilation of 3 daddy-dom stories. I was not to impressed with it, honestly.
Safe, sane, and consensual are the three top rules when it comes to BDSM - the only one that seemed to be covered in this book was safe. The girls were basically tricked into the Daddy-dom/sub relationship with Thomas (the Dom of the short stories).

The writing itself left me with wanting more, there wasn't much background given and the characters were a little empty themselves. Nina had a ton of potential, but just fell short for me with this bundle.

Michelle Jones sounded a little robotic, showing little emotion while narrating. She has a ton of potential as well, but just didn't hit the mark for me.

I love this story of friends to enemies to lovers, with light BDSM, romance. BB Hamel knows how to write romance sprinkled with just enough angsty feelings, forgiveness, steam, and never forgetting the happily ever after.

Remy and Justin grew up together and were extremely close. When Justin's father does the unthinkable and gets rid of his partner, who is Remy's father, things get sticky. The childhood friends are forced to part and turn into enemies. Fast forward about 15 years - Remy works for a prestigious ad agency and has buster her bum to get where she is, hoping she lands the director position that opens up. She is in for a surprise when Justin shows up as her new boss.
There is resentment and Remy has no issues telling Justin how she feels about the whole set up - but the chemistry is undeniable when they are forced to go to Hawaii and work together to land a huge VR client. Will they be able to leave the past where it needs to be left or will it drive them further apart? You are going to have to listen to see.

Meghan Kelly brings both Remy and Justin to life wonderfully - she portrays the emotions of each character and makes the story even more enjoyable

Olivia T Turner nails it with this quick hot listen about the taboo romance of a possessive professor falling in love with his freshman student.

Professor Gosling falls under the spell of Quinn when she enters his economics class the first time and Quinn is under just as strong of a spell. This story is the perfect mix of insta-love, hot steamy scenes and the sweetest epilogue - with very little drama.

Beth Roeg and Jack Stella do fantastic bringing Quinn and Tristan to life. If you are looking for a short, extra steamy read with the perfect happily ever after - this is the right listen.
