I don't take women to bed. I take them against the wall, hard and fast, and when I come I make sure they remember. They always do. I'm cocky as hell, I've got reason to be. I own Spades Royalle, the sexiest casino in Vegas. F - k, the sexiest casino in the country. I'm gonna keep building my empire all on my own - my ties with the mafia are in my past, buried with the bones of my family. I like my money clean and my women dirty. That is until I met Emmy Rose.

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.

Good book. Absolutely great narration. I loved the way this book was narrated. So much better when the male narrator isn’t doing the female voice and vice versa. This new style is probably more work for the producers and narrators, but it’s so worth it. I really hope to hear more books done this way.

Cute and fun story. Totally worth the listen.

One look at Jericho Forge, and I knew the rumors were true. He was a predator, and he had set his sights on me. I knew better than to bet more than I could afford to lose that night. I knew better than to bet myself. But desperation leads to bad decisions, and I thought there was no way I could lose. I was wrong. Now I have no choice but to make a deal with the devil....

March is the Queen of cliffhangers and I bow down to her. Normally I’d say cliffhangers suck, but not the way Meghan March does them. You might as well purchase all 3 books because trust me you’re going to want to know what happens next.

Joe Arden never disappoints, and Erin holds her own. They both delivered a high stakes sexy tale. The Mediterranean, powerful men, and hot sex makes me want to learn how to play poker.

You’re not going to be able to stop listening. Make sure you don’t make any plans once you start this series, because you’ll end up canceling them.

They said write what you know so that's what I did. I wrote dirty, I wrote erotic, I wrote the truth. And then they called me a liar. But it's not me who's lying, it's them. Our story isn't for everyone. It's not even for us. So if you're looking for the fairy tale and the stupid prince on his dumb white horse, move along. You've got a hold of the wrong book. This is not your story, this is not your life, and this is not your opportunity to dip your frightened little toe into the dark pool of water and "try new things" and then pull it out and decide... #NotForMe.

JA Huss has spectacularly done it again. She is the master at mind bending stories with some killer kink. This one is hot hot hot with a side of crazy tossed in for good measure. Savannah and Teddy’s narration was outstanding as always.

The only disappointment is JA Huss’ missing EOBS. I couldn’t wait for it, especially with this book’s storyline. I was excited to hear how she came up with such a deliciously provocative novel. Sadly I guess I will never know what inspired the sexy, and twisted tale she created with The Dirty Ones.

As the owner of Pick-A-D*ck, New Orleans' premier hook-up website, my job is simple. Connect two people for a no-strings, no-expectations hook-up. The plus for my clients is that I'm the one who gets to sift through the d*ck pics - except this time, they're required. My problem? My brother, co-owner of Pick-A-D*ck's sister dating site, doesn't believe it's possible to hook up with someone three times and not fall in love. I disagree. I know it's possible. And my disagreement is exactly how I end up reconnected with my high school nemesis, Elliott Sloane.

So often romantic comedies fall short on either the romance or the comedy. This book gives you the proper dose of both. My first Emma Hart book and it was totally worth the credit. Loretta Rawlins’ was amazing and I’m happy to see she is narrating the next book.

Fate doesn't own Jake McKallister. At least, that's what he tells himself. Life is better than ever. He's at the top of his game, performing to sold-out crowds the world over. He has his health and a solid, fun-loving family to keep him grounded. And he got the girl - the beautiful, quirky girl he's just made his wife. Yes, life is good. If only fate would stop screaming in his ear. Lucky is the best word for Casey McKallister. Yes, life is perfect...until it all comes crashing down around her.

You said you'd listen to your favorite narrators read anything: Well, this ambrosial new audiobook brings together an acclaimed cast of narrators to read aloud the menus of some of our favorite local restaurants here at Audible headquarters in Newark, New Jersey, as only they know how. You haven't truly lived, or dined, until you've heard Cassandra Campbell capture the emotional nuances of Newark's best Indian-inflected burgers or let Nick Podehl extol the virtues of the pear arugula salad and then seductively steer you toward a plate of creamy mushroom linguini.

The danger, the chaos, and the lifestyle of the Hellions world has become far too much for Savannah "Sass" Perchton. Swearing off bikers and attempting a "normal" life, she has settled. She pushes away her old life, her old self. She is trying to fit into a mold, to be everything she never was. He's a playboy - a different chick in his bed, off on a different ride, and always chasing something new. Frank "Tank" Oleander, Haywood's Hellions road chief, will give anything for his club, including his life.

The story was alright, I guess. The narration is a completely different story. I’ve heard little kids read aloud better than these two. The both sounded slow and I don’t mean his speed of speech. It feels like no one listened to them before they published. Shame on the producers.

The story wasn’t all that, but I might be jaded by the performance. Oh well it’s finally over and I can move on. Fingers, toes, and even eyes crossed that the next book is better.

Cinderella had it easy. I'm lying to millions of people, and it's all Silas's fault. Yes, that Silas. Billionaire, prince, scandals galore, downright royal bastard - everything that screams run. If only it weren't for his rock-hard edges and wild tattoos, tempting anything female on all seven continents. But I don't care about his looks. Really. Our deal is simple. He needs a pretty little lie, a wife to cover up his dirty deeds. I need a fortune to buy the treatment that just might save my father's life.

I've enjoyed several of Nicole Snow's books, but this one not so much. The story was thin. The performances by the narrators particularly Mr. Lane made the thin story even worse. For most of the book he sounds like he has a stick stuck up his arse, which gets old by the 3rd chapter. At one point when he is trying to flirt or be sexy he starts sounding like Austin Powers. Yeah baby! It makes me wonder if the author has listened to this book, because I can't imagine her thinking his voice was what she heard in her head when writing him.

Very disappointed with this one. Nicole Snow's biker books are much better and the narrators sound more like the parts. I think the producers or whoever forgot this was a romance novel when hiring John Lane as the Prince. There was nothing sexy about his voice at all. If fact they should have just let Isabelle Gordon read the entire book. Her male voice was more appealing than his was throughout the book, minus the last 30 minutes. Yes at that point I stopped listening because there was no way this book was going to redeem itself in the last chapter. Didn't care how it ended just happy to end it.

Sorry!
