I loved this book for so much more than the story. For the lessons it taught me, the emotion it made me feel and the deep ache it left in my heart.

I didn’t know what I was getting into with this book, it was an accident I listened to it. But I will never forget it and will come back from time to time to relearn the lessons taught in the words.

I can’t save myself from the cloister, and maybe I never could. The prophet grows more dangerous by the day. His delusions are steeped in blood, and if I’m not careful, that blood will be my own. Despite the growing risk, I still continue the search for the truth, no matter if the thorny path eventually twists back to Adam, guilt in his dark eyes. I’ve seen glimpses of his soul, and I know there is more to him than the monster, but it’s so hard to reach him. I knew when I came here I’d have to fight, I just didn’t realize the war would be waged on so many fronts.

Adam and Delilah return right where we left off, which means no niceties or getting to know you’s. Just full swing, intense, edge of your seat, plug shoved in your butt, mystery & insanity.

And this was just the starting point. By the end, My heart was racing and my eyes were flying so fast that I had to keep stopping and going back to reread because I would miss entire lines just trying to read faster and faster. I had to get the information in my brain as quick as possible.

Then the cliffy hit and I turned the page and shouted “NO!” And flipped back and turned it again, shouting once again, “no!” Cursing The Father of Fire! Damn you! I knew it was coming but still. Noooooo!

Until The Church, Celia, where you will trick me no more!!

Muffy and Teddy were the BEST choice for this book, bringing these characters to life making the audio even better than when I read the book.

How can Jessica do this to me???

This is book 2 in the series and of course, ends with a cliffhanger. In this book we continue with the Beau/Lola/Johnny saga, Beau gave Lola the option of a second night and Lola and Johnny quickly realize that 1 million isn’t enough for what they need. This leads to them accepting the second night and from there... wow.

Secrets revealed, drama ensues and emotions run high. And we are left hanging, wondering where it can go from here and who do we want Lola to be with? I’m so confused, my head and heart are warring and it was Jessica’s plan all along. Dang her!! 😏

Of course this book is worth the credit. And so will the next 2, my only complaint is that they aren’t released quick enough!

Christian Fox was the perfect choice for these books. He can play these characters and keep your head in the story like no one else. His voice is seduction and anger and happiness, all wrapped up in narration perfection.

I was so excited to see one of my favorite Alexa Riley books brought to audio and to my delight, the narration made it even better!!

This storyline is one of the strongest that AR has written. Full of angst, super sexy hotness and a happy ever after complete with babies!

Max and Emma are outstanding! They brought these characters to life and made a great book even better.

I was done with love. When I opened my heart, it was for the men I couldn't have. The unattainable ones. The ones who would hurt me. A vicious cycle I couldn’t seem to stop. But I had a new resolve. Focus on my career. Stay single. And then I met him. Jace Montgomery. A wounded widower with two young kids. He was exactly everything I was avoiding. So I did my best to stay away. But then he kissed me. And I fell. Hard. Hard for a man who would never be mine....

Did you hear the one about the girl who walks into a bar and catches her live-in lover kissing someone else? No? You’re the only one in town who missed it. Luckily Alec is there to wrap me up in strong arms and carry me out the door before things get too ugly. And that’s not all Alec is good at. Our unexpected chemistry makes him the perfect rebound guy.

Will I ever get tired of this series? Nope. Don’t think so.

Speakeasy might even be my favorite. The intense emotion that was conveyed through these characters about addiction, self judgement and forgiveness was overwhelming. The added humor and heart swelling love made for the best kind of book.

Seraphin & Lance were perfection. I thought Lance’s portrayal was spot on, the way he nailed the humor was exactly how I would have read it. Seraphin created so much emotion and angst. Loved it.

What a dirty little heart warming book complete with 2 sexy cowboys rescuing a deserving woman. But not the usual innocent woman, this book surprised me when the heroine was an older mother. Such a great twist!

While the story was a little corny, it was ultimately wholly interesting and super hot.

The narrators were fantastic. While CJ Bloom narrated the majority, it was great to be broken up by the grids voice of Ryan West. Perfect for this book.

Thoroughly enjoyed this MC story. It was just as hard core as I would imagine to be true to the MC life with romance added on top. Completely entertaining and enthralling.

The narration was perfect. Vanessa Edwin’s male voice, although obviously female, gave just the right lilt that kept me from being pulled from the story. I can’t wait to continue with this series.

I love these Stone Brothers so much but Stone Vows is my favorite. A broken woman and a man that will forever fight to protect her. What’s not to fall in love with?

This book is broken into 2 half’s. One from H POV and one from h POV. I loved getting to know each character from their own POV but if I could change anything, I would have loved for this to be dual POV. It is kind of a unique way to tell a story, the way that Samantha Christy has and while I am so in love with this book, I just couldn’t help but want that perspective instead.

Jason Clarke and Erin Mallon were absolute perfection. They portrayed all the characters distinctly and told the story masterfully.

Evan Bishop is your typical hotshot doctor. Instead of working on the family ranch, Evan broke the mold and became an ER doctor. He's good with his hands - in more ways than one - smart as a whip and is the definition of God's gift to women. Being a gentleman is in his Southern roots, but that doesn't mean he isn't flawed. Exclusive dating has never been a top priority and his tragic past makes him stay at arm's length. Deciding to let loose for a wild night, he takes a page from the Bishop brother's relationship book and hooks up with a mysterious girl he'll never have to see again.

I cannot get enough of these Bishop brothers. Evan is the brother that decided ranch life wasn’t for him and he became a doctor. Emily is a doctor that is trying to make a name for herself instead of living in her dad’s shadow. A one night stand turns into a situation that neither wanted... Evan is Emily’s new boss.

I absolutely loved the hate to lovers feel, even if the hate was misunderstood. The tension built into a romance that was so explosive, it knocked Emily’s panties off. Literally. There is something so endearing about the country attitude these Bishop brothers exude. I can’t get enough.

The dual POV narration was perfection. Aiden’s gruff timber and low drawl was exactly was these country boys would sound like. Savannah Peachwood always provides such a solid performance, turning into the character she portrays and is able to pull of male voices that are in no way cheesy and every bit believable.
