Parker Huntington is on fire! Starting first with Book 1- Asher Black (on my top 10 all-time books) and now continuing with Niccolaio Andretti. I absolutely love this Mafia world she has built for us. The Characters are amazing, deep, frustrating, and last but not least SEXY as all get out! Nicco's book was quite different from Asher's. Nicco is a bit edgier and comes with a bit of baggage in my opinion but we love him just the same. I can't wait to read more on this Series~

The Narration was FAN-TA-STIC! Lacy consistently blows me away with her soulful and emotion filled performances. Not only do you feel every word but you love listening to every second of it. She has a voice I could listen to all day. DC Cole was a great addition to this series! I absolutely loved his voices for Nicco. So deep and powerful. Love Love Loved it!

Talk about a powerhouse team!

This was a great book that was not only entertaining and steamy but also addressed some societal issues as well. I thought the characters were great, the plot intriguing and the narration delicious. I can't wait to read more on these characters.

Sullivan and Will are as close as two friends can be. Growing up in the system forced them to rely on each other, and they've become accustomed to sharing everything - including women. Now they're ready for more. To find love. To start a family. To see the dreams they've shared since childhood come true. Apparently I tick off every box on their list - brains, beauty, and sass. I never hesitate to put both men in their places - which they find sexy as hell. One problem, I'm a traditional girl, with traditional values - one man, one woman, till death do us part - kind of values.

This was a sweet Menage Romance. I loved the characters and the uniqueness to each personality. I also loved the dynamic of their relationship. I would have loved to see more though. More of the guys exploring and also exploring with Adrienne. Exploring this new dynamic that they were just growing to accept.

The narration was fantastic. They brought these characters to life in the best way.

Great read!

Joel and Jethro. Roommates. Total hunks. Inseparable friends. Hot as hell. Meet my fantasy boyfriends. Aren't they just the sexiest, cutest thing? I know, right? They totally are. They are hot, too hot for a quiet - and obsessed with them - girl working in a bookshop. That'd be me, by the way. There's also the tiny problem of Joel wanting another girl. And as for Jethro, well...he doesn't do girls. Or maybe he doesn't do relationships.

Wow! I loved every second of this book! Let me start by saying it was soo well written. I could not help but fall in love with the characters. The plot sucked me in from the very beginning. Joel's struggles really endeared him to me in a way that I couldn't have anticipated. This book stood out to me and claimed a top spot. It was hotter than I can even express, it was emotional, it was fun. It was a fantastic read.

The narration was unbelievable. Ava, Sebastian or Joe alone is a wonderful experience. All three together was an absolute wonder. Every single one of them brought their A game and gave us an experience like none other.

Hands down one of my favorite books this year!

Skeptical of other people's motives, she's always been the fling or the friend. Looking to define her life after college, she's thrilled when she scores a choice summer job working in Yosemite National Park restoring habitat. Court Thompson is a gorgeous (and bearded) forest ranger with a love-em and leave-em reputation. When he shows interest in her, she's torn.

When I drunkenly message my old high-school crush one night on Facebook, I never imagined he'd respond. It's been so many years, and I thought he'd forgotten all about me. He hasn't - not even close. And when we meet in person all these years later, he's a handsome hockey player...with three equally sexy friends. They could spend every night with a different woman, but they want me. I've been so focused on my job and my computer that when this complicated real-world dilemma comes up, I'm not sure what to do. Am I supposed to choose just one man? Or can I have them all?

Mia takes the cake with this one! She crafted some of the sexiest hockey playing hunks that are not only sexy on the outside but amazing people inside. I love the dynamic she built here as well as the Steamy goodness. My only complaint was that i wanted more! I would have loved to read more on these characters and felt it ended too soon. So So yummy!!

Lacy never fails to amaze me with her knockout performances. She has a voice I could listen to all day but better than that, she knows how to use it. She truly adds so much soul and emotion to her characters. Her performances elevate the story to new levels giving you an experience you can't help but love. Worth every penny!

Alyson wrote one amazing book here. I loved every second of it. The emotions, the characters, the way the characters heal through each other. It was a beautiful love story. Nate was exactly what Olivia needed. Olivia's past was one that took time and love to heal from. Olivia and Nate's story was touching and addicting. I could not put it down.

Melissa and Aaron gave a stellar performance. I love the soul and depth they gave these wonderful characters. I love when a narration enhances what are already amazing characters. The end result is something i will remember for a long time. Thank you!

By the time the guilt set in, it was too late. Reality was trying to keep me away from my obsession. My husband was that reality. My obsession was West. But West was forbidden. Taken. Married. We were swingers. It was the perfect arrangement. Until I fell in love....

This book has my head in a jumble! Let me start by saying I knew going into this book that it may push my comfort level being I have a hard time with cheating style books. Let me say that if you are like me, you should not be worried. This book was so well written that it was not a problem at all. Basic premise is two married couples who decide to start swinging for one reason or another. Leaving it just at that, you can imagine all the possible issues or fallout that may ensue. I was totally and fully pulled in. It was a wild roller coaster ride with so many twist and turns. I thought it was fabulous~

Narration by Aaron and Tracy was top notch as always. They gave perfect performances for these one of a kind characters. I loved how they brought them to life.

I can't say enough how much I loved the characters. I hated some of the characters but loved how much I hated them - Totally your fault~ . Gia - This was crazy, steamy, shocking, frustrating, and soo soo yummy! Thank you!

I want to start by saying that I have loved this series! It has great characters that we meet throughout the series and get to know. Normally you meet the threesome, see them go through some drama and end up together in a hot and steamy menage night at the key club. Yes! I highly recommend you check out the series! That being said, this specific book didn't quite hit the mark for me. The normal hot and heavy menage scene felt missed. I felt like we only got the foreplay and missed the firework ending. That being said, I will absolutely read the next book in the series as the books have been fun quick reads.

The narration on these is great. Love the performance, always has clean editing and is a pleasure to listen to.
