Hailey Taylor Emery has a hunch that her favorite client at Fetch - an anonymous virtual assistant service - is actually hockey star Matt Eriksson. Although it's against the rules for her to check his file, she's 95 percent sure she spends at least part of each day texting with her lifelong crush and catering to his every need. Still nursing a wounded heart thanks to her recent breakup, Hailey is perfectly content with some harmless online flirting...until she has to meet her client.

Elle Kennedy and Sarina have got this down - and yet manage to change it up every time while leaving you feeling you understand and know these people. I love this form of romance. Most of these guys are too perfect but I'll overlook it because they feel so real and I love alternate POVs - that don't drown you in detail but give you enough to fascinate. Jacob Morgan is amazing as a narrator - as a favorite I have him and a few others that manage to expand the character and don't seem rushed and manage to elevate the emotions of the character. Loved the interplay between Hailey and Matt - and her naivete and yet her dry direct wit. could not quit listening!
I'm on to your next one!

Skye Copeland is on paid leave from her broadcasting job after accidentally drawing a pecker on the traffic map. Like it's her fault the traffic pattern that day created a perfect schlong? Skye isn't laughing. She needs this job. And that's the only reason she's agreed to chase down a story in her least favorite place - that hell on earth known as Vermont. Skye can sneak into the town that once tried to break her, get the story and get back into the good graces of her producer. Easy peasy. Except things go sideways even as she sets foot over the county line.

These two are great together - love Skye, love Benny - Skye is remarkably sweet and remarkably well adjusted - given what she's lived with. I loved that they didn't go through long drawn out angst - although their history certainly -provides that backdrop. I love it when people survive horrible people - good job Sarina - ESPECIALLY FOR Zachary Webber - he is a real joy to listen to and to translate your works!

NR has a tough road with me - with Red Dirt Hearts as the yardstick - this series is at the top of the heap for me with MM Romance - and will always, always have a special place in my heart. While CJ may seem at first like a charity case, albeit one that tugs the heartstrings - You just know that this is Not Noah - he doesn't just bend over for every case, but he does do what he can. He has heart, he has connection - and Noah has circumstances that are incredibly awful and ongoing...I was in - and Mr. Leslie again triumphs with this narration.

Each day I prayed for my husband to love me again. After 15 years together, he walked away from me, and into the arms of another. I didn’t know how to cope. I didn’t know my worth. I didn’t know how to exist without him by my side. All I wanted was for him to come back to me. Then, Jackson Emery appeared. He was supposed to be a distraction for my mind. A summer fling. A confidence boost to my bruised heart. We were perfect for one another, because we both knew we wouldn’t last. Jackson didn’t believe in commitment, and I no longer believed in love.

I think Brittany - in her best books really channels people. Beautifully done - heart-aching. Her Descriptions are not overdone and yet intense and real - REAL. Keep it up - very very much appreciated - these are the tales of the forgotten and neglected and mis-understood - and yet all MUCH DESERVING of Love. I love these bridges to hope you build Brittany - Keep it up! I love all these stories in Kindle and Audible - because they are the same and yet different. A good narrator who is unhurried lends much to a great story - thank you Amanda and James!

I am complex. My love is all-encompassing. And when it comes to my heart, there is only one rule: Don’t mess with what’s mine. Until the age of seven, I was Joel Alexander Donovan, son of Jimmy. The man who terrorized a town and made its citizens fear the very ground he walked on. Including me, the day I realized that ground ran red with blood. At age 18, I became Priest. A man without a past. A man determined to right the wrongs of my father. A man who never believed anyone could love the son of such a monster.

Priest is the least verbal of this Trio - Julien and Robbie are definitely more transparent. I loved all three of these books - they were excellent - I was skeptical - it's hard to beat Logan and Tate throughout their books, but these books while different, captured some of the same affection for me. Ella is as far as I am concerned one of the premiere male male writers - a genre i've only come to love in the last few years. Logan and Tate - and their Temptation Series cannot be beat - between their growing love and chemistry - taken to the 10th power by Shannon Gunn - Through Robbie, Julien and Priest - I find Charlie David very well suited to this Trio - he does a beautiful job with them - and Ella by writing a different and yet similarly enthralling vibe to Logan and Tate. Familiarity does not breed contempt - I love the connection - between the worlds -and the continuity of the characters - it brings them firmly into focus. I've listened to the Temptation Series over and over again and i've listened to this series twice now - waiting for the final Book to come out in Audible (Ella Please!) LOVE YOUR BOOKS - And as you've probably guessed, this people are real to me - you've breathed life into them! THANK YOU!

Carrick Francis has spent most of his life jumping into trouble with both feet. The only thing saving him from prison or worse is his absolute devotion to Deacon Winters. Deacon was Crick's sanity and salvation during a miserable, abusive childhood, and Crick would do anything to stay with him forever.

This was very well done. I have to admit Bonfires & Crocus are my favorite Amy Lane books so far - but this is very good - really tough circumstances and sometimes - you can see that people do have this type of bad luck sometimes - Crick and Deacon are very endearing - and I love that they hung in there and Crick didn't change too much from the boy that left and yet he matured. I love their whole extended family. I loved Sean Crisden as a narrator - he's so great at the voices and emotion. I hope she keeps him! Amy - please keep it real and somewhat ordinary - I love to hear people finding happiness and your writing seems to have progressed and progressed. I love romance and have in the last 2 years enjoyed Gay Romance as well - they all deserve the lifetime dedicated love we all do! Thank you for your beautiful stories.

The night I twice rescued presumably straight Ethan Harris, I figured that would be the last time I saw him. However, he keeps finding his way back into my life - and into my bed. Guess he wasn't as straight as I thought. Ethan's full of surprises, though, and being bi is just one of them. As cocky as he can be, he's also sharp and witty and, even when he's being his most arrogant self, he's charming as hell. He likes to win, but so do I. However, as we get to know each other, I realize there's more to us than the games we play in and out of the bedroom.

Michael Pauley has never (unfortunately) been the narrator for me. LOVE Sean Crisden, Nick J. Russo, Joel Leslie, Greg Tremblay, Ezekial Robinson, Many others but for some reason I get turned off on a book I like when it's narrated by Michael. He just has a bit of a lilt that does not seem to fit most characters i admire. Maybe it's because I'm not gay but love these romances... but I tend to pass these books up for good reason - it just doesn't add anything to the book for me. Keep going Riley, but please - others for your narration!

At the age of 36, on the verge of completing a decade's worth of training as a neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer. One day he was a doctor treating the dying, and the next he was a patient struggling to live. And just like that, the future he and his wife had imagined evaporated.

A book by a Doctor that is very well written, and all too real. Heart rendering, peaceful - and surprisingly low drama - all because Dr Paul Kalanithi is that way. I am sad I put this one off as long as I did - I am the better for having read it - and listened to it! Well done. Many lives will be impacted by this truth.

Lloyd Salter has OCD issues with noise and mess, and he's uncomfortable with human interaction. When his ex claimed the only thing perfect enough to live up to his standards was an android, Lloyd dismissed it. SATinc is the largest manufacturer of androids in Australia, including the Fully Compatible Units known as an A-Class 10. Their latest design is the Synthetic Human Android UNit, otherwise known as SHAUN. Shaun is compatible to Lloyd's every need; the perfect fit on an intellectual and physical basis. But Lloyd soon realizes Shaun's not like other A-Class androids.
