I enjoyed the pace of the story and the laugh out loud moments! I giggled a lot and thoroughly enjoyed this fun contemporary romance.

Narration was well done and brought the story to life.

The characters were interesting and kept me enthralled from beginning to conclusion.
This is a second chance romance where high school sweethearts meet fourteen years later. Cat comes home engaged and nervous about introducing her fiancé to her family. Her family is a hoot! She is planning on a smooth thanksgiving but her family has something up their sleeve to try to derail her plans.

This is one of my favorite cozy mysteries I’ve ever listened to. I was hoping for a good story line and characters and this far surpassed all my expectations! I’m not familiar with this author but she just moved into my list of must read authors.

Narration was amazing! I loved her multiple voices which made it easy to identify who was talking. Her narration brought the story to life and it was hard to put it down!

I love paranormal Cozy mysteries with fun characters and interesting plots with some twists and turns to keep you engaged. Here you will find witches, warlocks, ghosts, and a Cozy mystery with a touch of romance!

I truly loved this Cozy Mystery and will be looking to get the next book in this outstanding series! The story wraps up nicely in the conclusion and they also throw in a bit of new news to get you interested in what is to come on book 2.

Valentine’s Day murder with Cupid’s arrows as the possible murder weapon! The story is clever and unique, different than anything I have heard before. There are multiple murders and several suspects to keep you guessing who is behind the murders.

Narration was good and brought the story to life.

The characters were interesting and the story moved at a good pace. I wish Ruby’s investigation had been at the forefront instead of in the background where we were unaware of her actions and thoughts. Everything was explained in detail at the conclusion.

There is a bit of romance thrown in for good measure. I’m looking forward to reading more books from this Fun Cozy Mystery Series.

This is an enjoyable SciFi romance. The story was interesting and kept my attention throughout. It is a fairly short listen with under 5 hours of listening time. Zorban meets his soulmate when she is only 18 months old. An unusual costume for the prince to pick his soulmate from babies and then having to wait until she is an adult to marry her.

The narration was good and brought the story to life.

Zorban's soulmate is kidnapped right after he meets her. Although they search for her she is nowhere to be found. The story quickly fast forwards to when he has been living on Earth for several years and has given up ever seeing his soulmate.

The story is predictable but the characters don't figure everything out until the very end and it concludes with a sweet HEA.

This is an interesting and unique series by Lisa Lace. I have read all previous books in this series and have enjoyed every single one of them. The idea of Cyborgs was introduced to me by this series and I throughly enjoyed learning about how they came to be on previous books.

Narration was good and brought the story to life.

This story was a bit different than the previous ones. Melissa is a student and has no interest in Cyborgs until she decides to join a group of Liberators. She was interested in their group leader and decided to join so she can spend time with him (fellow student). Little does she know that meeting a Cyborg would change everything.

This is a sweet science fiction romance that has some action, drama, and steamy romance.

The characters are interesting and kept me engaged from beginning to conclusion. I always enjoy the HEA conclusions.

Power struggles between parents and teens are nothing new, but chronic control battles are destructive to teen development as well as the entire family. According to psychotherapist Neil Brown, these battles occur as the result of self-perpetuating negative relationship patterns.

This is a new genre for me. It was a very insightful book into understanding the relationships between teens and their parents. The examples are really helpful for understanding the way things can go downhill fast and bad dynamics can make things go from bad to worse. This book gives parents real guidance to deal with the changes that come when kids are growing up and trying to spread their wings.

This book really gives great hope to parents struggling with parent-teen control battles. It gives information to understand the battle and prevent going down the negative path that often happens between parents and teens.

This box set contains four books. The main character is female vampire called Priscilla Pratt. There is a fun and unique take on vampires in this series. They have come out to humans and are trying to integrate into the human world.

Pricilla seems to have to worse luck about stumbling into dead bodies, which of course, she has had nothing to do with.

Narration was well done and brought the story to life.

This are the books included in this box set:
Book 1 - Fangs and Fondant
Book 2 - A Bite of Blueberry
Book 3 - Blood in the Batter
Book 4 - Holy Crepes

This audiobook has over 23 hrs of listening time! It’s a great box set. The author has created an interesting world with some mystery, humor, and a touch of romance.

I find it unique that Pricilla owns a bakery and cooks for a living, although, as a vampire, she can’t taste any food! She does have a friend in which she hired to taste everything she bakes.

The stories are engaging and I’d love to listen to more cozy mysteries with this fun centuries old vampire!

This is a great adult paranormal romance! The story was interesting and kept me hooked all the way through! I read the first book last year and had to figure out what happened next so I got the book 2 on my kindle before it came out on audiobook. I was excited when it came out as a box set on Audible. You get over 41 hours of listening time!

Narration was pretty good and brought the story to life. Sarah’s voice fit well with the main character.

This book has suspense, murder, witches, shifters, ghosts, vampires, magic, romance, steamy moments and much more. The story is very interesting and hard to put down. Things did seem to drag a bit at times but I did not mind. It is an intriguing captivating paranormal series.

Mismatch was a very unique story and totally different than anything I have read from Lisa Lace. She put a twist on the Billionaire romance by adding a second chance romance between high school sweethearts! It was definitely a big win for me!

Narration was well done and brought the story to life.

Lily is a free spirit that loves to paint. She had big plans for traveling when she was a teen but reality has kept her put since she graduated from high school. She lives in a small town in Arizona and she is still pursuing her dream of painting.

Ethan lost his mom when he was a teen and vowed to improve his financial situation. He leaves his high school sweetheart behind because he thinks she will not understand what he plans to do. Many years later, Ethan is a Billionaire working hard and ripping the benefits of hard work but he still feels empty.

Ethan’s rival, Vincent, gets matched with Lily but not all is what is seems. The new dating app pairs soulmates. You will have to read this book if you want to find out what happens next!!! I recommend this book to all Lisa Lace fans or anyone that enjoys contemporary romances with some steamy moments.

This book was very well written and grabbed my attention from beginning to conclusion. I was not sure how things were going to turn out and I was pleasantly surprised with a very sweet conclusion.

Narration was well done and brought the story to life.

Helen is almost 40 and she started wondering what would have happened if she had married her high school sweetheart. Some jealousy gets the best of her when she sees who her husband has been working with! His beautiful and stylish ex-girlfriend seems to have it all! She has a successful job and has an ex-husband. She starts wondering if she is after her husband!

After much indecisiveness, Helen decides to go to Rome with her mom and best friend to attend a friend’s wedding. Rome is a romantic setting and she sees her ex-boyfriend and starts wondering wether she still has feelings for him. After seeing a picture of his wife, Helen’s husband shows up at the worse possible time. Things are not what they seem and everything seems to go downhill fast!

If you want to know more, you will just have to grab this great Contemporary romance and find out for yourself how everything turns out! You will not be disappointed!
