I lived in the dark for three years. My whole world revolved around the whims and happiness of three men. It was just a trip into the forbidden. A way out of a bad situation and forward into nothingness. Quin, with his easy smile and charming good looks. He was always there for me...until he wasn't. Smith and his dispassionate attention. He was never there for me and he never regretted it. Bric, the one who listened, but only to himself. Self-absorbed, self-obsessed, and self-serving. He was never the one I wanted. And now he might be the only one I have left.

I agree with many of the other reviewers, I really had a special fondness for the main character in book 1, this book is his story and he did come across as a bit whiny and I loved Bric with the baby. But my favorite part of this book was EOBS with Julie. Julie, you are such an incredibly interesting person! I love how you share. This one in particular was very sweet! I love getting to know you via EOBS! 😊

The minute he opened his sexy mouth, Holliday Hughes should have known Jack Dalton was trouble. His smooth pickup lines, broad shoulders, and ridiculously handsome face charmed her right out of her clothes. She gave into her desires, the instant attraction blinding her to the obvious.

I think this book was just a miss for this author. Story lines there but didn’t gel. The last 20 minutes was a repeat. So then it just ended! Sebastian York was only used as a tease, in the beginning and at the end! What happened to Donny who lived next door? It does not sound like the next book gets any better. Sorry. Take a pass.

She was forbidden. I didn't care. As my best friend's little sister, Macey Hale was off-limits. Tempting as sin and forbidden. I wish I could say that stopped me. I wish I could tell you I'd behave like a gentleman. I didn't. When she waltzes back into my life with that same spark I fell for, looking every bit the beautiful woman I knew she'd grow into, I have to force myself to remember I'm different from the man she once knew. I'm colder. Harder. And for good reason.

Unfortunately I am not sure how they chose this narrator? She had no inflection or ability to change her voice for the male voices! Half the time I had to rewind to figure out who was talking! Not good.

They say Paris is always a good idea.... You know what I say? Paris would be a much better idea if I spoke the dang language. I can't even board the metro to visit the Louvre without ending up at the Moulin Rouge, and let's not even mention how I'll ever make it through a day at my new office. Fortunately my company hooks me up with my own personal translator. Ooh la la. Or should I say bloody hell? Because he's charming, witty, and British, and he brings the city to life for me.

The whole story line was so great, the author definitely made me feel like I was there in Paris! I have been to Paris, but now I would love to go back and experience it like Joy, of course would love to meet a Griffin but alas that probably won’t happen! Thank you for taking me on this journey! Throughly loved this book. What a great escape! Definitely worth the credit!

Unfortunately I also agree with many of the other reviewers, the male narrator semi distracted from the story. Stella did a fabulous job with both the female and male voices, leave it at that.

With a famous NHL player for a stepbrother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation of many a hockey star. So of course she isn't interested in legendary team captain Alex Waters or his pretty, beat-up face and rock-hard six-pack abs. But when Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet's misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes much more than just a hot body with the face to match.
