Dragons, duty, destined mates, and a deadly rival... Silas Llewellyn, the last of a once-mighty dragon clan, doesn’t have time for anything but work and duty. He certainly doesn’t have time for love - not with a ruthless enemy plotting to destroy everything he holds dear. When a priceless diamond - one of the legendary Spirit Stones - surfaces in New York, Silas knows the jewel is nothing but trouble... just like the alluring woman who refuses to relinquish the gem.

The 5th book of the Aloha shifters.the leader and most serious and alone, Silas a dragon shifter. He was left by his love for an another dragon, and an evil one. Silas is certain he will never have a destined mate like the other 4, but he is wrong!
Cassandra is a bartender in NYC whose aunt has died and told her of a spirit stone, which she must keep safe from all evil dragons....Silas and Drax, the dragon who stole his girl, know the diamond is being auctioned off..they go, bidding against each other when the auction is stopped. Cassandra gains possession of the diamond and now brings the struggle for her to know who to trust, who not too..to be alone...Silas struggles with trying to gain the diamond to keep from Drax and his pull to Cassandra.
This book gives the softer side to Solas and provides a very strong and focuses woman into his life.
I’ve been waiting for Silas story..wondering what would happen,, how and if he would get the stone..Who owns the land where the shifters live? Is Cassandra evil because she comes from witches?
Action, romance, steam..beautiful descriptions of the islands..suspense and mystery.
The narrator again is fantastic, perfect for the voices...sweet and tender, strong and firm..great pacing and emotion!
There is one more book, at least...now what will happen? the mystery isn’t solved.

Declan Dare is police office in NYC who has been going to a BDSM club to feel in control and not become attached to women he sleeps with.
Amanda has begun to go to the same BDSM club, not sleeping with men, but performing in scenes in private..desiring to be told what to do and to please someone..acceptance has always been lacking in her life.
The BDSM in this story is light, so if that isn’t your preference I still believe you enjoy this book..it’s much more about accepting love, yourself, and giving up rigid control and opening your heart..truly accepting supporting and loving when you’ve been afraid to do so.
A short book, but it gets to the point and was an enjoyable story....the Dare families are an interesting group with alpha males and strong women. Worth your time.
I love Sophie Eastlake..she has a great man’s voice and such a sweet and enjoyable woman’s voice...She’s one of my favorite narrators.

I just have to admit I love the over the top sweet romances if Alexa Riley, plain and simple. I read or listen to romance to imagine the perfect wonderful obsessive love (of course the obsessive in these stories aren’t bad or over controlling...this is a suspension of reality) but you smile and log ahh and wish you could be loved and love like these characters.
I get tired of the manwhore or the loving more than one person, not that I can’t enjoy them, but what woman doesn’t want to be the primary focus of a love unending?
Jae is the person assistant to CEO Osborne ( if you’ve read prior books in this series you know who he is and his love affair ) Jorden is in IT and security at Osborne and when he first met her he knew she was it for him. 2 years of being friends eventually leads to acknowledging their connection.
We revisit prior couples, we have corporate espionage, kidnapping, family strife..making friends, humor due to some clumsiness..it ultimately a deep and abiding love story.
The narrators we perfect and added to the story.
If you love sappy love stories and want to float away on a cloud of bliss get the series For Her audios.
Well worth it for me to just enjoy!

Ivy is American visiting her friend in England and tutoring her children..having gone through a divorce that devastated her self esteem.
Will is the younger brother to Ivy’s friend, an injured athlete also staying with his sister.
12 years prior at Will’s sister’s wedding they had a quick hot hook up...both remember it, Ivy embarrassed and Will, knowing Ivy is single wanting to rekindle.
The relationship that grows between Ivy and Will is enjoyable and painful to watch..Ivy’s insecurities drive her too much and you want to shake her..Happily Will doesn’t give up, at least not right away. It’s the wanting to shake Ivy that takes away a star in the story
I loved the narrators..they fit the parts so well..plus who does love a British accent..Will is very sexy sounding.
I must say seeing this is book 6 in the series I’d love to see what the first 5 are like.

Josie is swept from the West in book 1 to Mongolia, back in time..the only direction she’s been told she can go. Looked at as a goddess, Josie is struggling to survive..until she is put to sleep for years to awake in Persia.
Confused who to trust, who is also a time traveler, what does Carter want from her. Mourning the undoing of Taylor...determined to be aloof from those around...finding the life violent..with many trials...yet Josie is the type of woman who cares and feels responsible for those she is surrounded.
A prominent figure as her protector was Batu...
The relationships Josie becomes involved with..looking at the past..the wonderful writing to explain the emotions and travails Josie must live through brings and entertaining, emotional and fantastic journey .
The narrator is fantastic...her voice, cadence, emotion..creates the worlds Josie finds herself.
I just didn’t want the book to end and want the next, North ...I’m going to assume there will also be a book South...I am so involved in Josie and what will happen to her..if she will see Batu again..who will she met now as she finds herself with Vikings!
This series is perfect for history buffs, time traveling and mystery and suspense books and last but not least, the love Josie finds whether for children, other women, or the men she becomes attached .
Worth several credits...I will listen to these books over and over!

Never mix business and pleasure. That's what a smart business owner would do. Apparently, I'm not that bright. Desperate to get my failing web design firm off the ground, I sent a proposal to Gabriel, a rising rock star in the indie scene. He flat out told me that my design sucked. Luckily, he's willing to give me a second chance. But he's requiring me to do some unconventional things to get a better grasp of what he and his band are about. Go to a rock festival. Spend more time with him. I'll do anything to land this job. Everyone knows that rock stars don't do relationships....

Probably one of my favorite Sky Corgan books. Gabriel is lead singer for an indie band trying to make it in the rock world. His band is popular, but not as well known as he’d like.
Enter Abby, a web designer who has just started her own business and getting the opportunity to do the web page for Gabriel’s band would be a big step. Problem Abby really isn’t a rock fan, but after attending a rock festival she becomes close to Gabriel and designs a web page that helps the band.
The story has several hot scenes, but this story is more about them as people, being more than what they do for a living...how they may or may not fit together.
Love not having an angst filled story, but fun to watch their relationship develop.
I enjoyed the narrator who fit perfectly for the characters.
Worth my time :)

With each story the tension as to the culmination grows!
Cruise is the tiger shifter whose entire family was killed and humans were blamed. Sullen, quiet and constantly pacing the story starts with Cruise told by a reliable informant his family’s killed is at a party..specifics are given on how to recognize his target..he waits and his target is a woman..Jodi..he can’t do it..there is another sniper waiting to shoot her..Cruise saves her (she’s a pro surfer) and the struggle upon knowing it’s his destined mate begins.
Jodi is as positive as Cruise is negative...She says Life is beautiful, love is beautiful Believe.
Great action, sweetness once Cruise surrenders..add in lion shifters and vampires and mermaids?
Can’t wait for Silas’s story..to learn of his heartbreak and who will be his destined mate!
WORTH THE CREDIT WORTH THE MONEY! Get the entire series! This is a series I will listen to from time to time to enjoy as I really enjoy the narrator as well! she’s great

Georgia works for a company where the 34 CEO, Kline, began his business at 19 in college. He is attractive, smart and doesn’t appear to around arbitrarily with women and never at work...he’s respectful and respected at work.
Georgie has a best friend Cassie who free wheeling and funny. They are the kind of friends to each other everyone wishes to have..their conversations are great.
Kline also has a couple friends, Thrasher and Wes...also close.
Kline and Georgie, unknown to each other strike up a friendship on Tip It, the beginning of Kline’s empire....then Kline, desperate to get out of a set up by his mom asks Georgie to be his date...so begins their romance. The parents of Georgia, their friends and situations are so entertaining!
Their first date is so funny and so well done by the narrators i laughed out loud!
It’s great to have characters that aren’t often the norm...so damaged or men who sleep with anyone they meet.
I am buying the entire series, looking forward to seeing what happens with each character!

At a speed dating event Avery and Jack meet up..they were aware of each other in high school, but she was younger and he popular and she quiet. She has held a bit of a crush for him.
Well as fake engagement....lots of sex and feelings neither was looking for, she not to get hurt and him afraid of being hurt by failed relationship.
Lots of funny lines..great secondary characters and a happy ending with a good narrator with many voices and accents keeps it interesting. My only comment on the narrator is she could have sped up her pace.
