Attorney Sam Trevisani never thought he’d play the bad guy, but now his job makes him the enemy of every dog owner in town - and whenever he meets his main opponent, Dan Bailey, the vet gives him the evil eye. Tired of playing for the wrong side, Sam has to find a solution. Maybe the tempting Dr. Bailey can help him find a solution for his restless need for change. Or maybe it’s his attraction to the vet that pushes him to pay a late-night visit.

I liked this story a lot!
Classic enemies to lovers, the vet and the lawyer are on the opposite sides in the battle for a dog's park, but when they start to interact they discover what draws them together is stronger that what divides them!
The story is very low angst and super sweet.
Chris Meadows' narration is always good!

With Sam’s help, I’d improve my grades and stay on the team. What neither of us expected is that after studying, there was more I could teach him. After Jayden’s father died, he felt lost and alone. Nothing made sense to him anymore except for the ice and skating. It was there he could lose himself. With playoffs approaching, everything he had worked so hard to achieve was in jeopardy.

A geek and a jock, the geek tutors the hockey player, who's not the stereotypical jock, though...
Sparks fly and the story which developes is nice and funny and light, and it's a couple of hours of great entertainment.
Sam is stronger and more resilient that we would expect, just as Jayden is just a giant softie!
Romeo Alexander is a new to me author and Kaeomakana Tiwanak is a new to me narrator, but I really appreciated both their talents.

Jeremy is the quintessential homebody: He lives with his family, works from home, and doesn't even drive. He also doesn't think very much of himself after his failure to prevent his brother Daniel's injury. He is struggling to decide what to do with his life when fate drops a true mate right in his lap. Too bad even his mate can't see anything in Jeremy worth wanting.

I completely fell in love with this book! I usually listen to audiobooks in my down time, but with this one, I just couldn’t stop listening!
This is probably my new favourite in the series! It is much more emotional than the previous two, because the mating does not goes smooth, and also we have the shifter hunters back (what’s wrong with you people, would you leave them alone???).
So this book made me laugh, it made me cry, and then laugh again.
And without giving away or spoiling anything, I will only say that Marcello in his shifted form is completely and utterly adorable!
The Jacobson-Miller clan is the perfect example of what a strong and united family/pack truly is. Strong bonds that transcend time, distance, illness and adversities. This series just keeps getting better and better, and I truly love John York’s narration.

I might be into guys. Do you have any idea how terrifying that is? I've already run halfway across the country to get away from my abusive parents, and I really want to experiment, but I can't even hook up without scaring myself away. I might look confident on the outside, but this is tearing me apart. Then my new roomie wins a trip for two to a gay resort in Hawaii. Darren wants to show his clueless ex that he's moved on, and I want to help out.

When we first met Adam in the previous book, I did not think that he could be such a complete sweetheart. I had already detected his protective streak, which is plenty confirmed. I think that his attraction and affection for Darren was just what he was waiting for to finally start to overcome his doubts and hangups.
Darren on the other hand is quite easygoing, but after a toxic relationship is doubting himself and his self worth.
Together they realize that what each of them sees in the other is so much better than how they see themselves.
Lovely as always, this Ed Davies story provides, a lot of sexy times, laughter, fighting, and a crashed wall which no one should miss.
Nick J Russo's narration is exceptional as always, and Adam 's drawl.... wow!

Zoo vet Blane Winters' grumpy attitude and muscles hide a romantic heart. He only relaxes when he's around animals, since he likes them more than people. He has some friends, a good job, and a place of his own, and he's sure that's all he needs. Until he meets a certain incessantly cheerful artist.

Falcon and Blane are the second couple in the Significant Brothers series. Their story, low-angst as per Ed Davies usual (which I find extremely refreshing) is dotted with funny banter and sexy times.
Numerous outings for pizza and a super cute baby sloth make up the background of this story!

Dalton Andrews has seen it all. After spending a little over 10 years with the Denver PD, he’d had enough and joined Wildlife Services, not expecting it to be such an isolating career. When his job takes him on assignment to Crooked Bend, he jumps at the chance to work with actual people again when the town’s sheriff needs to hire a few more deputies. While at his new boss’ wedding reception, he unexpectedly meets blue-eyed architect Colin McKenzie that makes his brain go fuzzy.

I liked this book. Apart from both Dalton's and Collin's initial bitching at each other and generally behaving like toddlers with a tantrum, the book is well developed and has a solid and enjoyable storyline.

They say time heals all wounds, but it's been five years since my boyfriend died, and I haven't dated since. I threw myself into architecture, and thankfully, there's just no time to wallow or look for love. My friends push me to get back out there, but I'm not ready to be vulnerable again. Then I meet Kev. He dresses like a catalog model, but he talks like he's got an old soul. He shows me what I'm missing but holds his own heart just out of reach. I can't stop falling for him, and he might be worth taking a risk for. Can I believe in myself enough to win his trust and his heart?

Nick Russo is amazing as always and really does justice to Ed Davies great characters, Kev and Charlie.

I love the setting of this new series, NYC is always a great background.
Kev and Charlie... I loved that, even though they try at the beginning, they cannot help being drawn together.
I also loved their integrity, that they refuse to go against their principles to please others.
Looking forward to more of these guys!

Moving to the suburbs of L.A. was supposed to give Nic Montero a fresh start. After escaping his family, coming out as a gay trans man, and excelling in computer programming out of desperation to get financially stable or die, everything should be easy. But joining gay culture now, post-transition, feels impossible...until he runs into the force of nature that is Kyle. Everything Nic isn't, Kyle embodies. Green hair, garters and cut-off shorts, sports jerseys, and all, brash Kyle is the most gorgeous man he's ever laid eyes on, and he pulls Nic headlong into the center of his world. If only Nic felt like enough for a man like Kyle.

This is the first book in the F-word series by Ed Davies, which features a variety of characters from trans, to enby, to femme and drags...
Featuring in this first book are Nick, a trans man and Kyle, femme and daring in his style choices. Both man have trust and commitment issues due to their past, and together they will find a way to get over them and find their HEA.
Joel Leslie's narration gives this wonderful book an extra spark that will keep you glued to your headphones!
