The last person Griffin Shipley expects to find stuck in a ditch on his Vermont country road is his ex-hookup. Five years ago they shared a couple of steamy nights together, but that was a lifetime ago. At 27 Griff is now the accidental patriarch of his family farm. Even his enormous shoulders feel the strain of supporting his mother, his three siblings, and a dotty grandfather. He doesn't have time for the sorority girl who has shown up expecting to buy his harvest at half price.

I was pleasantly surprised with this book! I get super tired of the same old angst in every romance I listen to. This was a great story with even better characters. The narration was fantastic as well!!

An Irish mobster. A missing friend. Two loyalties, ripping me apart. I had a plan. Get in, get my information, and get out. Easy, right? Turns out, infiltrating the Irish mafia isn't exactly what I thought it would be. I just wanted a soldier. Someone I could flirt with to get me in the door. That's when Lachlan Crow noticed me. Problem was, he wasn't a soldier. No, he was next in line for the throne of the Irish underworld. And he was determined to hate me from the outset.

First off, kudos to Tracy Marks for her excellent narration! She totally brought each character to life!
What did I like about this book? I loved Loved LOVED Lachlan!! Holy Cow & Spiritual Rabbit... Who wants a Lachlan of their very own? ME? Yes, Please!! He is the Alpha of all Alpha males & his attitude/personality is sah-mo-kin HOT. This was a super sexy schmexy listen, with a surprisingly great story line.
Now, I need, really really need Reaper (book 2).. This IS a stand-alone book, but it's got me hungry for more! I will be looking for more from A. Zavarelli (hint, hint Audible.. This is currently your only audiobook title by her) & Tracy Marks. Great job, ladies!

Being confronted on the beach by a sexy stranger wasn't part of Natalie Conner's plans for a peaceful morning taking photos. And why on earth would he think she's taking pictures of him, anyway? Who is he? One thing’s for sure, he’s hot, and incredibly romantic, feeding Natalie’s wounded soul.

First book I've not been able to finish. No plot. WAY too many gag-worthy endearments. Main characters had no depth, no personality. I bought this because it was only $1.99, and it's fair to say that I got ripped off. Don't waste your credit or your 2 bucks. Step away people, STEP AWAY.

Refusing to lose her brother to the violent Hermanos street gang, Benny turns to Dimitri, the dead sexy Russian who lives in the apartment above her family's bakery. He's the only man tough enough to get through to Johnny and save him from a life in prison - or worse.

There's nothing Dimitri won't do for Benny, even if it means dealing with her troublemaking brother. He quickly realizes that it's not just Johnny and his thug friends that pose a threat to Benny.

This story had no depth. I couldn't wait for it to end. Benny had the mentality of a child, completely unbelievable that she is running a business on her own. They all lacked personality. I kept waiting for the build up and climax of the storyline, but no... It never came. Super disappointed. The narration was horrid as well. She sounds like she's in high school.
