Easton Crawford put his modeling career before his marriage until it was ending in divorce. Years later, he is finally learning how to be the father his daughter needs him to be. He's not looking for someone to step into the mother role - just nightly casual hook-ups. When his best friend convinces him that a good way to meet single women is to go on a singles cruise, he finds more than just a one-night stand.

I have to admit that I listened to this audiobook twice. I had a really hard time getting into the narration but listened to the whole book. Yet I wanted to see if maybe I had an easier time if I gave it a second chance, and I’m so happy that I did. I enjoyed it more the second time around.

The story was great, I really didn’t like Easton in the start, but he really redeemed himself with how great a dad he is to Cheyenne. And how great he was even when he knew that he likely had no chance with Brooke when they first met.

Brooke sure had a lot of losers in her life yet is a great friend and has some great friends in her life in the end.

I hope we get another book for Avery and Nicole in the future to see they story more.

I had trouble with the narration but the second time listened to this audiobook, found that it improved. (Maybe this is an eye opener for all of us, it might be our mood at the time of listening or reading a book 📖 🎧) However, I do believe that Eva Eastman must be new and needs more experience in not sounding like she’s reading through the book as if it’s the first time she has read it. Also there were spots where it wasn’t edited properly but still I found the audiobook to be a great time so I would suggest you be open while listening to this but it was a great book.

I’m intrigued to find out what happens to the three characters in this book. I usually don’t have as much trouble with characters finding themselves and leaving one relationship for another, but I found it a troublesome issue in my soul when Kristen sleeps with both Jake and Logan. I understand wanting to get out of an uncomfortable relationship and entering another but it just bothers me that she gets with both of them and not just once.

I also had a bit of trouble finding these young adults using drugs so much, perhaps a lot has changed since I’ve lived for the bar scene so this is just my opinion.

I found the narrator to do a grand job on this book, yet could have used a more masculine voice for the male parts. I admit that I prefer dual narrative for this reason.

I am wanting to see what becomes of all three main characters and I’m worried for Kristen hoping she finds who makes her happiest and finding her HEA. Of coarse I’m routing for one of her guys but you’re going to have to listen and decide for yourself who you want her to be with. We’re all going to have to listen or read the next book to find out what happens with these three. Will it be Logan or Jake who gets the girl? I’m an enquiring mind and will follow up on the next book to see who it is.

Being blood-bound to Caius, a powerful and rather irritating demonborn, was never on my bucket list. Of course, neither was being a reaper or learning I’m not fully human. In fact, there are a lot things going on in my life now that weren’t on that list - like almost having my immortal life cut short or finding out my unusual heritage may get me killed. As if that wasn’t enough, it seems like everyone around me is either keeping secrets or wants to see me dead. Except Caius, who isn’t what I expected.

I loved this book and can’t wait to get into the rest of this series. It hooked me from the start and I was shocked when it ended and want to dig into the rest in the series. Even if I have to read the book rather than listen to the audiobook, whatever is available I will be getting ASAP.

I feel bonded to both Jo and Caius, and absolutely loved Suzanne’s narration of all the characters. It was a surprise to hear the voice of Caius briefly at the end of each chapter and hear Zachary’s voice, these were brief but helped develop a clear picture in my head of Caius’ character. I’m hoping for more of Caius in the rest of the series. I’m so excited to see where they go next.

I’m off to see where I can get more of this story, bravo A.D. Trosper it’s a gem 💎

Awkward? Maybe. But how else is a good girl going to find out if she likes being naughty? I might be sweet as cherry pie, but I'm also bold and damn curious. And Gabe is charming, trustworthy, aces at seduction (or so I hear) and - bonus! - willing to give me lessons. But to guarantee it won’t ruin our friendship, I have some specific requirements for his instruction. I want these classes to be hypothetical more than hands-on. So what if he’s hella sexy? I can handle that, no problem.

One can never go wrong reading or spending time listening to a book by Lauren Blakely. It’s going to be a wonderful experience all round. That’s why I one click both her ebooks and audiobooks as soon as they are available.

This book was a crash course in seduction with a whole lot of smoulder tucked right in front. How either Arden and Gabe kept their hands off of each other as long as they did is a wonder all of its own, packed full of quirky, funny, and real life characters this book was amazingly narrated by two seasoned narrators.

Love both Erin Mallon and Joe Arden played these characters, they really work exceptionally well together.

Thank you all for an enjoyable listen, well worth a credit.♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

Oaklee Ryan needs a boyfriend, but not for any of the reasons you might think. It’s a simple request. But the girl is not so simple. Oaklee Ryan is a pragmatist. She lives in reality, she deals with facts, and she’s goal-oriented. So when she paid a visit to Jordan Wells asking for a game, calling it, “The Boyfriend Experience”, he thought he knew what she was getting at. Wining, dining, maybe a date to a wedding to appease her meddling mother. Lawton Gabriel took this game as a favor to his friend. It only took him five minutes to regret it. Oaklee Ryan is insane.

I started with book 3 because I won a book credit and had never had the chance to hear Victoria Mei yet, it was so fun hearing this book that I had to use up my credits for the rest of the series. I really enjoyed it and loved all of the narration so I couldn’t help myself.

The story was an interesting concept of a girl hiring a guy for the boyfriend experience when the girl by all means was successful, and ambitious in life but had a nemesis that hounded her into the boyfriend experience. And if I could hire a boyfriend, I certainly would have loved Lawton who turned into the best boyfriend ever. Plus it’s my first JA Huss book and I met her at a signing but hadn’t read any of her books yet, but I’m going back and listening to her other books in the series.

I belonged to you the moment you told my mama you were waiting for me when I was still inside her stomach. I belonged to you as we grew up sharing a tree house, a yard, and the lake. I even belonged to you when our three-year age difference tried to pull us apart rather than put us together. But I was most especially yours when you kissed me and told me you weren't letting me go.

I thought that I reviewed this already but missed it somehow. Really throughly enjoyed this book and loved Sarah Pukkett’s Performance. Sarah your voice is growing so much and you can really rock both male and female voices now! You helped bring this book to life, it was an emotional book with all the feelings and I loved that it was realistic. It was a welcome surprise to see that it followed the characters throughout their lives and it made my heart warm, bleed, and start again and again.

CJ Carmichael hasn't been able to get the vivacious blonde he spent four delirious days with off his mind. The blonde who was completely off-limits, but he couldn't deny. CJ had no intention of pursuing her, but Tara Stevens knew what she wanted and it was him. Now six months later, their time together still haunts him. As much as he's tried to talk himself out of seeing her again, the craving is just too powerful. Tara is more than willing to spend an entire fantasy weekend with CJ. More than willing to hand herself over to him completely and fulfill his every desire.

Love the narration it’s great, and enjoyed the audiobook but really tired of gangster stories at the moment.

I have a confession to make. I hate my math professor, Connor Daniels. From the moment he walked into class, he’s been a thorn in my side, nitpicking every little thing that I do. It burns me how he expects me to be just as perfect as he is. I get that professors are supposed to challenge their students, but he’s such a... He’s a dick. Cocky. Big-headed. Egotistical. So why can’t I stop fantasizing about him? Standing up there in his tight jeans, his bulge practically flaunted in my face. I picture the victorious way he’d smirk as he bent me over his desk.

Yes there are a lot of taboo teacher trope stories out there but this one was sweet and relatable, meaning it all was realistic. And the narration was fantastic and it brought both Daisy and Connor to life. I really enjoy dual narrative especially when the characters are done in such a way that they feel like there right there in front of you speaking and your a friend standing next to them. Really enjoyed this first book of the series and I’m excited to hear the the other two.

I've had many moments in my lifetime, moments that changed me, challenged me. Moments that scared me and engulfed me. However, the biggest ones - the most heartbreaking and breathtaking ones - all included him. I was 10 years old when I lost my voice. A piece of me was stolen away, and the only person who could truly hear my silence was Brooks Griffin. He was the light during my dark days, the promise of tomorrow, until tragedy found him. Tragedy that eventually drowned him in a sea of memories.

This book is full of moments, ones showing a never ending love between two friends who are one another’s anchor in life. Brittainy sure knows how to bring on every single emotion in her books, and this one shows emotions in spades.

Erin does a fabulous job with handling all the characters and I honestly would have loved her doin* the entire audiobook. But then, Joe Arden also is an amazing narrator.

All of the stories from Brittainy are cloak full of heart wrenching moments that sweep you up into the tale and keep you mesmerized until the end.

I chuckled, I laughed, I cried and my heart hurt so badly at points that I wasn’t sure I could handle what might happen with Maggie May and Brooks,.

It’s a wonderful creative look into what happens when one adorable girl falls hard for her older brothers friend. I definitely would love to be friends with either or both of the main characters in this story and it’s defiantly a fantastic use of a credit. I defiantly will seek even more books by Brittainy in th3 near future❣️
