I really enjoyed the first audiobook in this series and couldn't wait to listen to the next book in the series

The story overall was another great MMF story with emphasis on the female character being strong and going after what she wanted. I loved the connection between the two male characters as well

Ava Lucas and JF Harding were outstanding as usual. Tor Thom is a new narrator to me and unfortunately I didn't connect with his narration. I felt that he overdid his deep male voice and it sounded croaky to me.

But overall I enjoyed this audiobook and I hope that the author continues to release this series as audiobooks in the future

I’ve been listening to my father sing for my whole life. I carry him in my pocket on my MP3 player. It’s just that we’ve never met face to face. My mother would never tell me how I came to be, or why my rock star father and I have never met. I thought it was her only secret. I was wrong. When she dies, he finally appears. Suddenly I have a first-class ticket into my father’s exclusive world. A world I don’t want any part of - not at this cost. Only three things keep me going: my a cappella singing group, a swoony blue-eyed boy named Jake, and the burning questions in my soul.

Working as a nanny in an exclusive London borough for two bi-sexual alphas is my dream job. Except Gabe and Luke are so freaking hot, they're making me think dirty thoughts. I can't have them though...it would be totally outta line. And they couldn't possibly be interested in a 22-year old virgin like me. I'll have to find someone else to punch my V card, right? Yeah, right....

This was a very hot and steamy MMF story but it also had some genuine emotion and feeling

The narration was very good, but I would have preferred a female narrator as well, but that is a personal preference. The narrator's accent was impeccable (even though I did feel the "Britishness" was over-played a bit). He was clear and conveyed the heat and emotion of the story

Overall a good audiobook and I can't wait to listen to more from this author and narrator

I absolutely adore this series and there was a lot of expectation for RISD's story and Kate Canterbary did not disappointed

Riley Walsh got the story he deserved and the Special Someone he deserved. This audio had everything I have come to expect as a given with Kate's writing: awesome dialogue, lots of laugh, great banter, some angst and plenty of super sexy times.

The amazing duo of Lucy Rivers and Christian Fox were outstanding. I love how they find new "voices" for each new character they narrate

This is one of the best audiobook series EVER!

Krystina Cole was a girl on a mission. She had big dreams and aspirations, none of which included a man by her side. She knew better than that - at least until she met Alexander Stone, the New York billionaire real estate tycoon. She saw the way that he looked at her, and the dark promises in his eyes. She was curious about his world and all that it entailed. But the shadows of her past haunted her, making her afraid to explore possibilities that she could never before have imagined....

When you read the blurb you can see "shares" of a certain book, but this audio is way better!

I'm a sucker for a dominant broody billionaire tycoon when it's done right and Krystina wasn't a push over female lead.

It is a cliffhanger, but I really got into the story and can't wait to see what happens next

Jeffrey Kater was at his growly best with this narration. Lacy Laurel was good as Krystina, but I felt she sounded more mature than the character she narrated, but this is a personal opinion

Once upon a time, I believed in fairytales. But then he took me. And he taught me that life isn't a fairytale. He is scarred. Broken. A dark and wild thing. His beauty is violent and his words are cruel. His heart is a shadowed landscape where nothing can grow. He tells me he could never care for me, and he proves it every day.

I am not usually a fan of the darker side of romance, but I love A Zavarelli's writing so I gave it a go.

What an emotional rollercoaster! It is loosely based on Beauty and the Beast, but it's a dark and twisted tale... not for the faint hearted!

Tracy Marks is an excellent narrator, who conveyed realistic emotions and there was clear distinction between the different characters

So overall, it's a dark read, but the top notch narration draws you in and keep you engaged until the very end!

Meet Lauren Halsted. It's all the little things - the action plans, the long-kept promises - that started falling apart when my life slipped into controlled chaos. After I fell ass over elbow into Matthew Walsh's arms, I couldn't decide whether I wanted to run screaming or rip his pants off, and most days I wanted a little of both. If I was being honest with myself, it was rip his pants off, ride him like a workhorse, and then run screaming.

I wish I could articulate clearly and concisely just how much I loved this audiobook... but I am sure I am going end up just gushing like a teenager. Listening to this book and finding this author has reminded me just why I love audiobooks so much. The eye-catching first sentence caught my eye when I was looking for a freebie on Amazon with an Audible add on and after the first chapter I was captivated by Kate's words and the characters she created.

This is no FSOG/Alpha Billionaire/[insert current popular troupe here] story, Matt and Lauren are believable, real characters who meet and have an instant attraction to each other. I loved that Matt did all the chasing and Lauren wasn't described according to the label of the clothing she wore. You know Matt and Lauren are meant to be together, even though to begin with they are looking for different things. Yes there is a healthy dose of angst between the two, but it isn't contrived and Kate's excellent dual POV enables us to see inside their heads and feeling everything alongside them.

This audiobook had everything I wanted and needed in a good romance: on-point banter, humour, thermonuclear hot sexy times and a great cast of supporting characters, who are in fact Matt's close-knit but crazy siblings who will be getting their own books as the series progresses. I even loved, and this is coming from someone who cannot draw a straight line to save their life, the description of the Walsh Associates architectural firm and the work they do. Such is the vibrancy and uniqueness of this author's voice

The narration is simply outstanding. Christian Fox and Lucy Rivers are just fantastic - I cannot recommend this audiobook book enough and can't wait to listen to the other books in the series

Living in a world where I was worth more dead than alive was a choice. I was a bad man; I never claimed to be anything else. I've done things I'm not proud of, seen things that can't be unseen. I've caused pain that I can't undo. It was all my choice. Every decision. Every order. Right and wrong never mattered. Until her. She was under my protection, until she became my obsession.

Wow! What a ride! El Diablo is not my usual audiobook fare, but I had seen a lot of buzz around this book, so I held off reading until the audiobook was released

And it was worth the wait! El Diablo was full of dark unpredictable romance and lots of shocking twists and turns that left me spellbound!

I really enjoyed the dual narration. Marcio's accent sounded very realistic to me and it didn't sound cheesy. Lauren's voice was perfect for Lexi. I could feel the emotion coming from the narration.

The author creates a complex story, full of twists and turn, but doesn't end on a downer and the listener gets a satisfying HEA.

Overall a great listen and I can't wait to hear more from this author

I do love a good New Adult romance and Going Under, Book 3 of the Blackhawk Boys by Lexi Ryan is NA done right!

This had a bit of everything: off-limits romance, the best friends' sister and some sports romance thrown in for good measure

There is a lot of back story that slowly get revealed between Sebastian and Alex. This one had me on the edge of my seat.

The narration by Summer Roberts & Tyler Donnes is great as usual - confident yet emotional at the right times.

I cannot wait for the next book in this series

The favor seemed simple: Keep my new stepsister out of trouble for one summer. I've never met Grace Lee, but Mom tells me she's a quiet and artsy college student with a troubled past. When I agreed to let her stay with me, I thought it was no big deal. I expected to share my apartment with a sullen girl who'd spend hours locked in her room. I didn't expect a walking fantasy determined to make me lose my cool. I didn't expect a woman with secrets so dark, so deep, I'd throw away everything if it would save her from the past.

Rushing In is another great addition to the Blackhawk Boys series by Lexi Ryan

I usually avoid the step-brother troupe, but with this audiobook that was only a small component to the story overall

This one ticked all the boxes for me: well written, great characters, lots of sass, plenty of angst and a swoon-worthy hero and most importantly the story is told from dual POV

The narration by Tyler Donne and Summer Roberts was excellent and they sounded age-appropriate for their characters.

Overall an enjoyable addition to the series and I can't wait for the next book!
