It’s been said that you can’t love two men at the same time. You can’t split your heart, soul, and body in half. But I’m here to tell you, you can. Dylan Cole is like ice, sharp and unpredictable, the thunder inside a tumultuous storm. Smith Reid is warmth, soft and gentle, perfect like a sunny day. Both are mine. But I can have only one. There are two sides to this tale. I'm here to tell you mine. If you think this story is about a cheater, you couldn’t be more wrong.

This is not something that should be listened to anywhere you don't want people to see your tears. So work was a bad idea. I need my staff to still see me as a bada$$.
Time hops are challenging sometimes, esp when listening versus reading, you have to keep super focused. But it was easy having the multiple male narrators. Once I heard which one was speaking, I knew immediately the time frame, so that was easier. Tears didn't come until the end. I had figured the outcome early, but that didn't make it any easier.
Well written, narrators awesome as always. Marni did not disappoint <3

New Orleans belongs to me. You don't know my name, but I control everything you see - and all the things you don't. My reach knows no bounds, and my demands are always met. I didn't need to loan money to a failing family distillery, but it amuses me to have them in my debt. To have her in my debt. She doesn't know she caught my attention. She should've been more careful. I'm going to own her. Consume her. Maybe even keep her. It's time to collect what I'm owed.

While the story is good, probably better read than listened to. Joe Arden is great, but barely narrates any chapters. The female narrator is good, but only the female parts. Any male parts, like Mount, the banker, even the delivery guy, she speaks very robotic and slow. And I listen at a higher speed. It wasn't enough for me to not finish, in fact, I'll probably get the next book just because I need to know what happens. But not my favorite listen.

Maggie's mind is reeling when she discovers the guy she became tangled up with at Marv's Bait & Tackle isn't a stranger like she thought. The big snag: Sam and Maggie's chemistry is hot enough to melt ice, which makes keeping their secret far more difficult than either expected. Especially when one of them decides they want this arrangement to be more than just a catch and release.

Holy bearded ginger swoon.... This book is so good y'all! It's funny, Sam is so swoon-worthy, Maggie is sassy and determined and I loved hearing about Miles and Kate again <3
I will def be re-listening to this one.
Also, while Erin and Teddy were awesome as per usual, Teddy's voice seemed deeper on this one, which made Sam even more swoony. Loved, loved, loved it!!!! 5 ice-fishing stars!!!

No last names. No life stories. Those were the rules. Once upon a time a cocky, copper-haired tourist sauntered into Zara's bar. And even though she knew better, Zara indulged in a cure for the small-town blues. It was supposed to be an uncomplicated fling - a few sizzling weeks before he went back to his life, and she moved on. Until an accidental pregnancy changed her life. Two years later, she's made peace with the notion that Dave No-Last-Name will never be found - until one summer day when he walks into her coffee shop.

You can't go wrong with any Sarina Bowen books... A casual summer fling changes the course of a couples life forever. *Slightly* disappointed with the ending but I'm hoping it continues in the next book (and that there was no epilogue, again, could continue in book 5).
Narrators: Teddy, awesome as always. Seraphine, while she is a good narrator, she lacks a little in her "male" voice department. All the guy characters just sound like frat boys. If you can get past that, it's worth the listen.

This single gal has had enough of the games, the BS, and the endless chase. I know what I want most, and it's not true love. It's a bun in the oven, and I'm not afraid to hit up my sex-on-a-stick coworker to do the job. Ryder is gorgeous, witty, and wild - and he's also a notorious commitmentphobe. That makes him the perfect candidate to make a deposit in the bank of me. I won't fall for him, he won't fall for me, and there's no way baby will make three. Right?

It all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress. Something blue. I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.” Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true. The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there.

My life was perfect - until a shocking tragedy pulled the rug out from underneath me. My children were left without a father. I was without a husband and a provider. Instead of wallowing in my grief, I buried myself in my work at Dovetail Enterprises. Landing the promotion as the CEO’s right hand was exactly what I needed. Getting saddled with Milo Huxley as an assistant is exactly the opposite. I can’t stand him. He’s arrogant, irresponsible, and out for my job. As if that’s not bad enough, he has to be devastatingly sexy, and have a posh English accent that makes me squirm on top of it all.

Gah! His British accent is panty melting. I loved the h's attitude, her sassyness, and loyalty to her friends. Her daughter, not only being a typical teenager, I found hilarious. Danielle and her friends cracked me up.
Milo was, although a bit of a manwhore in the beginning, was super swoon-worthy.

The ONLY two complaints:
I wish the sex scenes were more descriptive.
Danielle is 40 years old. While the cover is GORGEOUS, I don't feel like it portrays the couple AT ALL.

The narrators did an awesome job. Even her voice sounded a little older and fit the story but was a bit misleading from the cover. His voice and accent were amazing.

Not every woman likes to submit. An increasing number of women like to be on top. And their partners love it! Filled with surprises and unexpected twists (yes, that kind, too!), this audiobook proves that when lust and desire take control, all bets are off.

Lots of short stories so if a certain kink isn't your thing, it's not the entire book and you can sort of pick and choose what fantasy you like to listen to.
The narration, was just ok. The male voice is high pitched, the female voice is a little too deep.
