I have listened to this series over and over again. Just love the characters and the narrator Aiden Snow is just the greatest. His accent for the characters makes it so much more believable . Great story line, and characters are well thought out. I hope this is not the end of this series. I would love to know what happens next for them. All are HEA.

This is the first book in this series and I am telling you stop right now and get the other two books so there won't be any waiting. You will want to go right to the next one. Aiden Snow as the narrator is brilliant. Love that accent. The voice is so smooth and so masculine sounding. Just the perfect choice for this series as a narrator.

This book, like all of Ms. Sky's books are just amazing. I love the story lines and the characters are thought out nicely. Muse is just a continuation of the previous books only this time the children are all grown up. Love the steamy love scenes and just the way the story is woven together. This series has nine books so far and I hope audible continues to get them all. I hate listening to a book, but can't get the audible version because its not available.

Great job Ms Sky. The narrators were wonderful.

This book continues where the first left off. Characters were well thought out.. Love how it refers back to Kyle and Kelsey as well as the other siblings and parents. (spoiler alert) Kelsey is more powerful in this book and Kyle says he knows she's been practicing. The narrators were great. Love the Irish lilt in male character's voice. just a great book all around and steamy love scenes too.

Keep the additional books coming audible. Great job Ms. Trettel another home run.

Life is good for Jesse "The Lord" Ward. Perfect, actually. He still has the charm, he's in great shape, and he still reduces his wife, Ava, to a pool of desire with a mere look. He's in full control, just how he likes it. But Jesse's perfect world falls apart when a terrible accident lands Ava in the hospital with a life-threatening head injury.

Amazing book. This book was just as amazing as the first book. It is so great to read another book belonging to the series once the initial series is complete. It is just wonderful to take a peek in their HEA. Well worth every credit or every penny. Truly a master piece. Thank you Ms. Malpas--Wonderful work

Lucy Sinclair was no stranger to pain. She grew up with three younger brothers, met a bad boy, got pregnant by him, married him, and then suffered through a nasty divorce from him. Pain. That was pain. To top it off, she even had to go through the heartbreaking divorce of her parents. Through it all, she survived. All she cared about was making sure her daughter was happy and taken care of. It was Angie and only Angie she focused on, but that all changed when Benji Paxton offered to help her daughter on the ice.
