A girl. A guy. And a talking peen. Holly Martin isn't the type to have a one-night stand. But a crushing break up, a sexy blind date, and a few shots of Fireball is about to change all that.

Who would have thought a talking peen would be funny??? This quick listen is full of laughs and a little angst. Holly and Matthew go thru a series of misunderstandings that were predictable at times but the many laugh out loud moments make up for that. Matthew may just be the hottest nerd ever!!! The dynamic narrator duo of Tor and Charley once again make for an amazing listen!!!

This is the best story I've read in a while!! I knew fairly early on what was gonna happen but the journey to the revelation was magnificently done. Evie and Leo captured my heart and I was heartbroken for them as children and as adults. I went looking specifically for these narrators as they are a dynamic duo and always bring life to every book.

Everyone knows a couple like Jack and Grace. He has looks and wealth; she has charm and elegance. He's a dedicated attorney who has never lost a case; she is a flawless homemaker, a masterful gardener and cook, and dotes on her disabled younger sister. Though they are still newlyweds, they seem to have it all. You might not want to like them, but you do. You're hopelessly charmed by the ease and comfort of their home, by the graciousness of the dinner parties they throw. You’d like to get to know Grace better.

This was a fantastic story of not knowing what really goes on behind closed doors! Jack and Grace are the quintessential couple. But it is all a lie. Jack is not the doting husband and Grace is far from the perfect housewife. This story is so creepy and I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. The narration was spot on and added a whole new dimension to the book.

When the trail leads to an art gallery, Vlad wants to dig deeper, but he needs help from the owner’s daughter. The pretty redhead is far too innocent for a man like Vlad, but he’ll do what it takes to get the information he needs. His obligations are to the family, even if that means using the fiery woman.

I love a good mafia story and this one didnt let me down. This story of three Russian brothers investigating their fathers murder didn't pack a whole lot of punch but it does hold your attention till the end. DC cole is amazing and he brings life to this series!

Josephine: It was the worst blind date in the history of the universe, until Holden Winters swept in and rescued me. Are you kidding? Holden Winters? A scion of the notorious Winters family, Holden is gorgeous, wealthy, and brilliant. He dates socialites and pop stars, not computer science grad students more comfortable in a hoodie than couture. Our night together was a fantasy...and a huge mistake.

This isn't your everyday Beauty and the Beast story. Our love story was tragic, until it wasn't. Once upon a time I fell in love with a beast. I fell fast. I fell hard. I loved him intensely and I trusted him completely - until he ripped my heart to shreds. Love isn't a fairy tale. It's messy.
It's dirty. It's painful, and it's ugly. Until it's not. This is Book 2 and the final book of the Beast & Beauty Devil's Blaze Duet. Book 1: Beast must be heard first.

This is a true romance story and I loved it. The words are poetic and speak to your heart. Chris and Catherine have a love that truly stands the test of time. The narrators were perfect. I love Andy and Sebastian. Xe Sands is new to me and boy is her voice magical. Her cadence is great and I will definitely look for more of her work.

When tragedy unexpectedly struck, he was forced to help his best friend’s daughter. She needed him. What he didn’t know was that he needed her, too - like his own breath. How could he know it would all go so terribly wrong? That he would cross the line?

This author and this narrator are new to me and I'm glad I found them both. This is an incredible story of overcoming tragedy and loss. Theo and Eden are perfect together and their story is beautifully written and the added mystery keeps you listening. This narrator does a great job with the male voices and her voice is perfect. I look forward to other books by both.

Blind dates? Online dating profiles? Been there, done that. Georgia Cummings has zero luck with dating, and the era of the Internet is not her friend. No matter how fast she runs, how many corners she turns, she can't find her way out of this weird, alternate universe where men think dick pics are a replacement for small talk and getting to know a girl. One more crotch selfie and she might write men off for good. But why can't she stop fantasizing about him?

She was my first love. She was my first hate. The very sun in my world tried to burn me alive with her lies and cruelty. Until I dimmed her light for good.... Or so I thought. Now she’s back. Cracked. Broken. Lost. And for the first time in a long time, I feel free. Free from our past. Free from my present that suffocates me. Free to destroy her future. Her misery is my music. Thrilling. Invigorating. Intoxicating. For so long, all I’ve done is hate her. So why do I love her?

This is an amazingly beautiful story of how one act, one moment in time changed the lives of three people forever. This book touches on a lot of real life topics with bullying being in the forefront. The narration was incredible. These two narrators were perfect together they made all the emotions in this book that much more powerful. I highly recommend this listen!!
