Fear. Zack Greyson had never known the true meaning of the word until he suspected he might be gay - which wasn't an option for the personal trainer and ex-football star. He's tried to convince himself that his attraction to men is nothing more than just a mere curiosity, but when Jackson Parker walks into his life, that façade comes shattering down. Jackson Parker is used to rejection because secrets never stay hidden forever.

The story itself was great and totally dragged me in. The editing, however, was definitely not its best. A lot of lines were repeated and started over, which totally pulled me out of the mood.

Ox was 23 when murder came to town and tore a hole in his head and heart. The boy chased after the monster with revenge in his blood red eyes, leaving Ox behind to pick up the pieces. It's been three years since that fateful day and the boy is back. Except now he's a man, and Ox can no longer ignore the song that howls between them.

This was an awesome story that had me so invested in all the characters and had me cracking up on more than one occasion. The narrator really brought all these characters to life and really drew me in.

When she fell asleep, the world was doomed. When she awoke, it was dead. In the wake of a fever that decimated the earth's population - killing women and children and making childbirth deadly for the mother and infant - the midwife must pick her way through the bones of the world she once knew to find her place in this dangerous new one. Gone are the pillars of civilization. All that remains is power - and the strong who possess it.

this was a beautiful heartbreaking story, as a woman it gave me pride in the gift I was naturally born with. It also made me think of how strong we have to be, to be able to survive all that time has put us through. This story is powerful and well written, delivered by a talented narrator.

Being raised among a race of half-breed Vampires and Lycans has been far from easy for Kira. VampLycans despise humans - and her mother's human blood runs deep in Kira's veins. Unable to shift, having few VampLycan traits at all, Kira is denied acceptance from the clan, and the love of the man she's wanted since childhood. A little girl's crush that's bloomed into a desire so strong, it threatens to consume her. Suffering the pain of Lorn someday finding a mate is not an option.

For years, guitarist Quinn Porter has been on the road, chasing gig after gig, largely absent to his twice-ex-wife Belle and their odd, Guinness records-obsessed son. When the boy dies suddenly, Quinn seeks forgiveness for his paternal shortcomings by completing the requirements for one of his son's unfinished Boy Scout badges. For seven Saturdays Quinn does yard work for Ona Vitkus, the spry 104-year-old Lithuanian immigrant the boy had visited weekly.

I didn't think that it would be possible so sum up 100 years or see it thru the eyes of a young boy. But it was done and brought to life and color. This story is beautiful, heartbreaking and heart warming

Cora Goode has woken up in a fairytale world where she can understand what birds are saying to her, men ride horses and have fluffy feathers in their hats, and furniture zigs, zags, and whirls in miracles of construction. The problem is, she thinks she's in a dream, but she's actually taken the place of the parallel-universe Cora and, without realizing it, our Cora does something that starts a centuries-old curse that will sweep the land if she gets captured by the evil Minerva.

Jake McKallister might have been a rock star, but he was no ordinary one. Surviving an unspeakable crime as a young teen had shaped him into a guarded workaholic, and he now lived his life trying to forget. If it hadn't been for music and the redemption he found through it, he might not have survived. Career success came easily for him. Personal connections did not.

Circe Quinn goes to sleep at home and wakes up in a corral filled with women wearing sacrificial virgin attire - and she is one of them. She soon finds out that she's not having a wild dream; she's living a frightening nightmare where she's been transported to a barren land populated by a primitive people, and in short order she's installed very unwillingly on a white throne of horns as their queen.
