"Hi Monty. Wanna see my python?" That's how I ended up in the bathroom of some dive bar with a stranger. Me, Monty Andrews, the quintessential virgin girl next door. I was so out of my element, but there was no denying our explosive attraction, even via text. Commence Operation Bang Each Other Out of Our Systems, because that was all it was - unfinished business. I had no intention of falling back into the sheets with the tattooed, muscly, dirty-in-the-best-kind-of-way single dad over and over... but I did. Everything was going great - until we discovered I was his son's teacher.

I’m so disappointed! I was excited to listen to this as I loved the rest of he series. But the male narrator just wasn’t the right pick for this role. I loved the story lines throughout the previous two books but I don’t think I can finish this one bc of the male narration.

When my college boyfriend betrayed me and left, breaking my heart, Jay picked a side. He chose me. He stayed, and for the past six years, he's been my rock, my anchor, my compass....Now we've grown up, finished school, and have careers. Me as a nurse practitioner; Jay as a doctor. He's been everything I needed, but now I want more. I can't stop thinking about him, and I'm done hiding it. It's time to find out if he wants me, too.

I loved everything about this audio. From perfect narration (um why doesn’t Matthew Holland narrate more romance?!) to steamy sex scenes and finally ending with a perfect love story. This was a wonderfully written friends to lovers story which had just the right amount of angst to it. I wish Kivrin Wilson had more audio to listen to!

Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases - a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with as well as way less experience in the dating department than the average 30-year-old. It doesn't help that she has Asperger's and that French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. She decides that she needs lots of practice - with a professional - which is why she hires escort Michael Phan.

Loved this book. It’s like a reverse Pretty Woman but with depth and a female character who isn’t ‘perfect’. It was funny, sweet, sexy and low angst. Excellent listen. While I love Carly Robins male voices, sometimes when she does secondary female characters it can be a little annoying. Still an excellent listen

She's not a quiet librarian. My landlord is infuriating. He's uptight and rigid, right down to those dress shirts that do nothing to hide the muscle underneath. Sure, I never read the tenant's agreement. I have now. In fact, I've memorized it and I'm going to use it to my advantage while staying within the bounds of my contract. Is it my fault that those little decorative touches drive Charlie nuts? And who can resist purchasing a few vulgar gnomes to enhance the landscape?

This was an easy listen. Great narration and a good story line. I liked that the male character wasn’t the embodiment of perfection but would have liked if the author delved a bit deeper into his ‘quirks’. It felt like the issue was being skirted a little. Loved and laughed about the garden gnomes!

"I didn't think he wanted me. And I wasn't about to get involved with him, not after what I'd heard. Sure, Alex Kennedy was tall, dark and unbearably hot, but I've been burned before. When I solicited him to model for my erotic photography book, I didn't expect such a heated, passionate photo session. And now that we've crossed that line, our bodies aren't the only things that have been exposed."

Olivia Bishop is no fun. That's what her ex-husband said. And that's what her smart bob and glasses imply. So with her trademark determination, Olivia sets out to remake her life. She's going to spend time with her girlfriends and not throw it all away for some man. But when an outing with her book club leads her to a brewery taproom, the dark-haired beauty realizes that trouble - in the form of sexy Jamie Donovan - may be too tempting to avoid.

I loved this series and this was my favourite out of the bunch. The writing is a perfect combination of romance, sex, intrigue and a bit of mystery! Lauren Fortgang has to be the most underrated narrator. I love all of the different voices she uses for different characters. I sometimes find a characters voice annoying but not with her. Her male voice is excellent as well!

I absolutely loved all the books in this series! The characters are so well developed, the romance is swoon worthy but not mushy, the women are easier to identify with, the side stories (beyond the romance) were fantastically written and the narration throughout the series was superb! Will Watt really brings out the characters individual traits through his voice and I love that Piper Goodeve’s isn’t like so many in the romance world, it’s not all breathy and annoying! I’ve never been a huge sports romance fan but this wasn’t your usual story line.

Okay first of all, Will Watt is amazing!!! His voice and accent are so perfect for this character!!
I adore Piper Goodeve’s voice! She expresses emotion so fluidly.
And this story!! Wow. It’s seductive and perfect. Amy Daws wrote a story about domination that didn’t turn me off at all! For the first time, I actually understood the reasons why it would be a turn on!! I would highly recommend.
