After being raised by my asshole police officer father and my subservient mother, I went off to college with a penchant for outlaw alpha males. I knew Dalton Biskette was in the Selected Sinners MC, and a bad boy; but the night he walked into my bar I had no idea just how bad he really was. Covered in tattoos, muscles, and wearing his cut, he exuded masculinity and sex from his every pore. On the first night he made me laugh, he made me uncomfortable, and he made me have sex with him. Well, the last part’s a lie, I wanted it more than he did.

I've tried to like this series. There is misogyny a plenty throughout these books. And the only reason I continued listening is the fact that Biscuit and a couple of minor characters were funny af. In Biscuit's book he's a complete jerk to women, and Kat is an idiot. She has an inner monologue that states she'd "Have a man to put her in her place. But also cherish her. " That was when I knew I had to stop with this series.

And it only gets worse from there. Needless to say I didn't finish this book.

The narrators did a great job however. even Melissa Lions did the best she could with the character she had to work with. Very disappointed.

It wasn't the way this kind of story was supposed to go...insta-love isn't supposed to turn into insta-hate. But that's exactly what happened when the dreamboat I met in a bar turned out to be a lying, cheating scumbag looking for nothing but a little side action. And he has the nerve to call me a liar and a "sociopath"? Asshole. And now, three months later, it turns out my boss is marrying his sister in Hawaii and I've got to play nice with him for an entire freaking week.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I love the Morgans, don't get me wrong, but the female lead wasn't the smartest tool in the shed. Be that as it may, this was a great fun story. I would recommend, but only to those who are looking for cute and crazy fun who doesn't mind an annoying female lead.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was Ryan. He's sweet and all around good guy. Not sure if I would've been as patient with f in the story. I would've given up on her and moved on to someone else.

What about Lauren Rowe and John Lane ’s performance did you like?

Mr. Lane's performance was, and always is perfect. The author didn't do a bad job at all.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The powerpoint presentations were very fun to listen to.

Any additional comments?

My only gripe with Captain is that the female character tended to jump to too many conclusions, (to the point where I'm convinced she's just not very smart or unable to learn from her mistakes.) and was wishy washy with her feelings for Ryan. So many authors do this, and it's tiresome.

Everything else in this book was pure gold.

Lucas Thorn wasn't born a cheater. All it took was a single moment - say, a certain disastrous incident on the night before his wedding - and boom. Reputation destroyed forever and always. So now he owns it. He has a lady friend for every night of the week (except Sundays - God's day and all), and his rules are simple: No commitments. No exceptions. But a certain smart-mouthed, strawberry blonde vixen is about to blow that all to hell.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this audiobook because it's a genuinely fun read and listen. The story - to me - started off a little disturbing until a little later when it's explained away. Lucas and Avery's story is about unrequited love with an element that isn't used that much in romance stories.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character is Lucas' mother, because she has no filter and is funny af.

Which scene was your favorite?

My favorite scene was when Lucas was talking with his mother and they had a conversation regarding her chicken apron. Mr. Cendese did a great job narrating this scene.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If I could listen to this book in one sitting I would.

Any additional comments?

This is the first book by Ms Van Dyken that I've finished. Wasn't a fan of her other new adult books. With that said, I was a bit reluctant to get Cheater. The only reason why I bought it was because of the narrators. Lucy Rivers is one of my favorites. I'm glad I did take a chance on this book. Her narration made it very easy to identify with the characters. And that is soooo important with audiobooks.

Camden Harris, the famously hot, hulk of a footballer is laid up in a London hospital. But his busted knee doesn't stop him from running his well-practiced game on Indie Porter - his redheaded spitfire of a doctor. She's not his type, not even close. But she could be the perfect distraction from the soul-crushing damage this injury could cost him.

I'll be honest, the main reason I bought this was because of Will M. Watt. He's an amazingly talented narrator with a soothing deep voice. He did an amazing job narrating along with Charlotte Cole.

The characters in the book were not very mature. The miscommunication, the flip flopping of emotions made my teeth clench in irritation. The characters are supposed to be in their mid 20's, but it seemed they were more teenagers than adults. I can understand an athlete behaving like this. Not a doctor.

I don't think I'll pick up another Amy Daws book.

With a famous NHL player for a stepbrother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation of many a hockey star. So of course she isn't interested in legendary team captain Alex Waters or his pretty, beat-up face and rock-hard six-pack abs. But when Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet's misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes much more than just a hot body with the face to match.

I absolutely loved this book and the audiobook was well performed. Nathan Everett and Muffy Newtown did a great job narrating this piece. Nathan's smooth gentle voice was exactly how I heard Alex in my head while I was reading Pucked.

This is your average run of the mill sports romance novel but with a barrage of crude silliness and dirty banter that can make you laugh your way through to the end. This is the type of listen that will definitely bring a smile to your face, and melt your... ahem... heart. I am looking forward to hearing "Pucked Up" when it's released.

I'm pretty disappointed with the author. She had a very good plot, but failed to explore the actual growth of the characters. What thoughts did they have when they made decisions etc. I was hoping that there would be more conflict with Penny and Matt. She was his babysitter after all. It didn't really seem to be that much of an issue. It was almost as if she didn't really want to write this book at all.
The only good thing about this book was the narration.

The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi-pure-bloods-have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals-well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: Become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures. Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway.

The narrator's performance was pretty awful. The story was good and very well written. I don't think I'll purchase the next audio book in this series since Ms Eyre has read them too. I'll just read the next one on my Kindle.
