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!

I would really encourage anyone that is thinking about reading this book to start with the first book. Book one is so great and you will not want to miss it! The writing is amazing and I just could not put it down!

Narration was excellent and brought the story to life.

Here you will find action, suspense, mystery, and sizzling romance! The story is so gripping that is hard to get anything done until you figure out how everything is going to turn out! I read the kindle edition last year and I still got sucked in and could not put it down.

The Dragonian prince takes awhile to realize what is write in front of him. Freyja misunderstands just about everything he does and somehow gets jealous of his feelings for the “First Witch”! Which is like being jealous of herself! Lol

I loved to way everything wrapped up nicely at the conclusion after a major epic battle!

It seems TerraMates are employing some shady people with horrible work ethics. The employees are not even tricking women into bogus arrangements anymore! TerraMates are flat out kidnapping women that are not even interested in getting married or moving to another planet!

Narration is well done and brings the story to life. I always enjoy when there is dual narration.

This Alien mail order bride story is so unique and entertaining! I really enjoy the plot, drama, romance, and eventually things fall in place nicely with a great HEA conclusion.

I enjoyed the unexpected twists in this story! Lisa Lace is so creative with her stories and they are all enjoyable to listen/read. I’m already looking forward to my next book! I cannot even imagine what TerraMates is going to come up with next!

I’m very selective with the mysteries I decide to read and I’m so glad I gave this book a try. I’m not familiar with this author, but from now on, I’ll keep my eyes open for more books written by her. I have not read the previous books in the Northstar Security Series but this one can be read as a stand alone.

Narration was good and brought the story to life.

The characters were interesting and the story kept me enthralled from beginning to conclusion. I like light mysteries with a touch of romance and humor! This book was even better than I expected it. Now, I just need to go back and read the previous books in this awesome modern detective series!

But her dream job quickly becomes a nightmare when she discovers her new boss is as unpleasant as he is handsome. Khalid Sharif may make her pulse race, but not even his dark mystique, lithe muscles, and ridiculous wealth are enough to make up for his rudeness.

Leslie North is a very talented author and I always enjoy her books! This book is an excellent addition to the Sharif Sheikhs series. I love traveling to exotic locations! I’ve always wanted to visit Dubai. Maybe one day, but until then, I’ll read Leslie’s contemporary romances! I always feel immersed in her books and have a hard time putting it down. It’s a good thing I can usually get through them in one sitting. This one is just under three hours of listening time.

Narration was really good and brought the story to life.

The main characters are strong and independent. Khalid was very difficult to deal with because he kept ignoring all Katie’s ideas to help his gallery. Katie is beautiful and driven to succeed despite her difficult boss!

This can be read as a stand alone but I would suggest reading the first two books as well. This is a great series.
