What do you do when the past refuses to stay dead and buried? Six months have passed since the explosion at Platinum Industries. For the first time in our lives, Bandit and I knew what it felt like to be with a loving family, and it was a lot like getting to eat a main and dessert every day, for every meal (and having starved on the streets for so long, everyone knows how much I like my food).

This author is so good at capturing your attention and holding it from beginning to conclusion! This audiobook is hard to put down! It is an amazing journey with Chase and Bandit going through a rollercoaster of emotions, betrayal, love, misunderstandings, and surprises.

The narration was excellent and brought the story to life.

This is such a fast paced thrilling and action packed story that will keep you on your toes. I love how this story wraps up nicely but the author introduces new information to get us hooked and wanting to know what will happen next in the Chase Ryder Series!

I’m looking forward to book 3 in this outstanding series!!!

Vampire Alexis Black is on a mission - to rejoin the human race. Coerced into signing an ironclad contract by an angel-with-attitude, Alexis must hunt down and assassinate at least one vampire, werewolf, or creepy crawly every night for 50 years to become human again. Too bad the contract didn’t mention the badass vampire who now rides shotgun in her brain, insatiable bloodlust, or her new I-hate-everything-with-fangs sidekick. If she can fulfill her end of the bargain, her humanity is restored, if not she will be destroyed.

The story was a bit confusing at first. I felt lost and thought that perhaps this book was not for me, but fortunately, I stayed with it until things were sorted out and explained. About 2-3 hrs in, I really started getting into the story and started enjoying the characters more. There is quite a bit of action and some twists and turns I did not see coming.

The narration was pretty good and brought the story to life. I enjoyed her multiple voices that made it easy to know who was speaking.

This was really an unusual take on vampires. Alexis is very unique and it took me a bit to figure out why. She has a dark past and a unique pact that makes her "Evil's Assassin". If you start reading and get confused, keep going things will be explained and all will make sense in due time.

I'm looking forward to the second book. I want to see how her unique team continues to work together to protect humans and search for an old adversary.

The story concluded without a big cliffhanger which I'm grateful for.

I really enjoyed listening to this outstanding audiobook. I’m a teen at heart and absolutely loved the unique take on Dickersen Academy. This author does a great job developing the characters and building a world which is fun and unique.

Narration was good and brought the story to life.

I really enjoyed learning about the characters and their mysterious environment. I also liked the little romance between Autumn and Ben. There are some unexpected obstacles along the way.

Their freshman year was full of surprises and challenges but such a great story. I’m looking forward to book number two!

I'd been living on the streets for around eight months before I lost count. It wasn't easy, but it was still preferable to what I had to deal with at home. In all that time, unable to trust anyone, I had been alone (I knew from experience that people always failed you). Then one day, while out searching for food, I stumbled upon this mangy dog being attacked. It wasn't a big deal to help him, but then he ended up saving my life which is when I realized there was something special about him: Muttface wasn't a normal dog - he was crazy intelligent. I'm talking Mensa levels. And he wasn't an accident either, having recently escaped from a mysterious lab.

This is such a great adventure for kids and adults of all ages! Bandit is such an amazing lovable dog that will capture your heart! This is a suspenseful fast paced book that grabs your attention from beginning to the awesome conclusion.

Narration was excellent and brought the story to life. I hope Heather will be narrating the whole series.

The characters are well developed and each scene is so well described that I felt immersed into the story. It was a great rollercoaster ride with some twists and turns.

I’m really looking forward to the next book in this series! This author is so talented. She knows how to capture her audience and keep them on their toes all the way through.

I enjoyed book 1 in this series and was looking forward to seeing where the story would go. The story continues with some twists and turns I did not see coming. The story was interesting and kept my attention.

Narration was well done and brought the story to life. I love that this narrator makes each character unique and you can easily understand who is speaking.

The story moves at a slow pace with great description of situations and the surroundings. This book picks up a bit towards the conclusion and leaves us hanging again with a cliffhanger.

It was an enjoyable book and I’m looking forward to finding out what happens when the story wraps up in the next final book.

As far as she knows, she has classes to sign up for, parties to attend, and an overprotective father to avoid.

This outstanding book series is written in a TV series format. Each book represents a week's episode. I'm a huge fan of the old "Charmed" TV series and "Vampire Diaries". I"m delighted to find a new series that I enjoy so much. I absolutely loved everything about this series.

The narration was well done and brought the story to life.

The story is about four girls, Marley, Cassie, Taylor, and Eve. There are multiple points of view being shown so we get a good idea of what is going on and how each character feels about multiple situations. There is usually cliffhangers at the end of each book and a major cliffhanger in the last book as well. I'm hoping this book will become a TV series, because I know I would absolutely love it! I was hooked from book 1 and I'm so looking forward to volume number two!

The author does an excellent job developing the characters and describing situations where you feel like you are part of the story. This is a new author for me, but I'm definitely going to look up more of her books. I really enjoyed her writing style.

For centuries, humans and dragons existed side-by-side in Alveria, bonded by their care of one another. But no longer. After decades with no viable eggs, humans far outnumber dragons, and the survival of the species appears bleak. The outlook for everyday humans is little better as rogue dragons raid and torment villages. Yet it’s far worse for the tamers, beaten and killed simply for serving the noble dragons. But eking by at the bottom of Alverian society isn’t any easier for 17-year-old Kaelan Younger. Harder still when her loyalty to the dragon crown is no secret.

This is a new author for me. I’m glad I decided to give this new series a try. The world created by the author is unique and interesting. I was hooked from beginning to conclusion. There is the right amount of adventure, romance, drama, and intrigue.

Narration was well done and brought the story to life.

The characters are well developed and the story did not take long to suck me in. I love having dual narration so I can clearly understand where both main characters are coming from.

I’m glad the author did NOT conclude in a major cliffhanger but wrapped things up a bit and hinted of what is to come. I’m really looking forward to book 2. This is a great start to a new clean dragon series that can be read by any age group.

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.

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.
