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.

We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was “ScreenGod”, and she was “Montana”, but of course those weren’t our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind. Logging in at night and talking to her was my escape - my sanctuary. Her real name was Eden, I’d soon come to find out. From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed. She was an addiction. At first, we knew nothing about each other’s real identities...and she was adamant that we keep things that way.

So freakin sweet but in a deliciously dirty way. When a filthy rich and bored Cam John meets a poor and down on her luck Cam Girl, sparks fly and nothing will get in the way of them being together. Not even the major life secret she is keeping from him.

I loved how romantically sweet this story was. Not a whole lot of drama, a little sadness and a lot of hope and determination from a very strong woman and a very hot man that had a major life realization.

Narration was strong as always.

We were 16 the night she was violently assaulted while I helplessly watched. I’ll never forget the sounds of her suffering. Or my inconsolable agony when she left Oklahoma. Years later, she returns to honor our teenage pact. Except the boy she loved is gone, replaced by a ruthless cattle rancher knotted with secrets. She doesn’t know my dark cravings or the trails of sin that lead to her. I don’t deserve her, but one truth remains: She’s mine.

From start to finish, this book immerses you in a dark, painful and dangerous place. I rarely cry in audiobooks, but within 10 minutes, the emotion was so real. I was hooked.

The incredible lows are met with amazing highs that are so oustandingly sexy. The cowboy dances with his girl and the description will knock your socks off, just the dance. When things get hotter... oh boy. Pam Godwin does not hold back.

Ted Branson was the cowboy that was MEANT to be. His drawl and his slow lilt when it was called for had me melting in my seat and begging for more. Savannah Peachwood was strong and powerful in a role that was so deeply painful and horrible. It can’t have been easy and she was absolutely stunning in this performance.

Returning home for her father’s wedding was never going to be easy for Adele. If being sent away at 18 hadn’t been bad enough, the mess she left behind when she made a pass at her dad’s business partner sure was. Fifteen years older than her, Pete had been her crush for as long as she could remember. But she’d misread the situation - confusing friendliness for undying love. Awkward. Seven years on, things are different. Adele is no longer a kid, but all it takes is seeing him again to bring back all those old feelings.

Single POV told in first person, this story is a forbidden romance about a girl who falls in love with her dad’s best friend and business partner.

They have a history of him being such a great friend to her as she grew up, where her crush began. She makes a grand gesture when she turns 18 that is not taken very kindly which drives her to move away. 7 years later, she is back and emotions have not died.

I love forbidden romances and this one did not disappoint. Kylie Scott’s humor shines bright in this book and I found myself chuckling constantly. The female main character is hilarious and such a unique and quirky girl that just endears you to her so much. The male main character is broody and closed off, the combination of them together is a frequently told story but Kylie’s spin made it one of my favorites.

What I couldn’t understand is why it took place overseas but no one had an accent? How could that be? I don’t understand? While Andi did a great job narrating, I couldn’t get over the missing accent.

Trying to put past hurts behind you is hard when your ex is a fool, but buoyed by child support and alimony, Jo Walker is moving forward with her life, pursuing a career, raising her little girl, and trying to live in peace. She believes she has all the bases covered in her world. But what about her heart?    Rap legend Everett "Big South" McClain is divorced, too, knows all about failed relationships, and has relegated his love life to casual connections rather than pursuing something real. That is, until he lays eyes on Jo.

New author to me, but when I saw Jakobi Diem and I read reviews that said the main character was a hot alpha, I had to purchase and I’m so glad I did.

The story is told in first person, dual POV, just the way I like it. The only time it broke into duet was when there was a rap and Jakobi was awesome! Killed it.

Jo is a divorced mom and Everett “Big South” is a hugely successful rapper that instantly falls for her sass and charm. It’s a whirlwind relationship until he finds out exactly who Jo was married to. From there, both of their exes are nothing but drama that tries to drive them apart.

I loved this story, it was hot and steamy and absolutely enthralling, I had a hard time putting it down to do anything else. The only issue I had was the extremely odd names for body parts that completely ruined some of the sex scenes for me. It would get into it and then “yoni” or “treasure” would be said and my head would shake. Maybe it’s a regional thing but it would make me laugh instead of keep me in the story. Other than that, I was hooked! I can’t wait for more McClain brothers!

Jakobi Diem could read the dictionary and I would listen. His voice is so rough and gritty. I love it, perfect for this character. Adenrele Ojo was MADE to read for Jo. Every line was perfection and I have no idea how she didn’t giggle when reading some of those bizarre lines about “pearls” but she pulled it off perfectly.

From every character to every scene, from the build up to the climax, this book was darn near perfection. Jordan and her boyfriend, Cole, are down on their luck and move in with Cole’s dad, Pike. Jordan and Cole grow distant while Jordan and Pike grow close. You can only imagine the drama that ensues.

The chemistry between Jordan and Pike, the way their relationship built and the things that they found in each other were so simple but so endearing and man, were they sizzling. I do wish there had been more sex but I lived with it because of the intense chemistry that I felt in my bones.

Andrew and Jennifer were excellent choices for Birthday Girl. I felt they embodies everything that these characters were meant to be and sound like. I never once felt like I was being drawn out of the story because of the narration, it only enhanced it.

Completely unexpected, this book was one that I hadn’t anticipated loving so very much. The humor and emotion, the character connection and development... it was all so perfect. Not to mention the hot guy on guy action, that was so incredibly steamy and well written. I absolutely loved it.

Alexander and Iggy were the perfect narrator choices. I love them in m/m books, their ability to distinguish characters and their tone and timing are spot on.
