After being disowned and labelled as a human because she can't shift, Betty Newman rescues unwanted dogs to fulfill her need for pack. Being rejected by her birth pack was enough pain for a lifetime, and she'll do anything to avoid subjecting herself to their prejudices. Things change when Ken Birch wakes in her kennel still in wolf form and declares she's his soul mate. His presence wakes her feral heart and makes her long for a life she can't have. Old wounds are opened, and she refuses to listen to instinct.

One mistake leads the infuriating Ken to Betty’s home. Betty’s heart was torn to pieces when she was disowned by her pack. It was hard enough to pick up those pieces and move forward with her life but now Ken stirs up old feelings and desires with his adamant insistence that they are soulmates. Should she open herself up to the possibility and fight for what she wants or turn tail and run?
I really enjoyed their story. I loved how close and supportive Betty’s father and mother were. I also adored the sweet moments Ken and Betty shared.
The two had me laughing and smiling with their witty and playful banter. They are definitely perfectly matched.

I loved Foster and Noelle’s story. It was touching. I adored how protective Foster is of Noelle, even when his caveman side was showing. Noelle is a little firecracker. She gives Foster a run for his money. Together the two make an amazing pair. I loved the banter between the two. I can honestly say theirs is a story I would definitely listen to over again.

Loving Ashe is a lovely read. It has quite a few twists in it. I almost wanted to race through Ashe and Riley’s story to find the answers to all my questions but I didn’t want to miss anything. I adored Ashe. His character totally melted my heart. I liked Riley too, especially towards the end. I enjoyed going on this journey with them and can’t wait to devour the second half of this duet.
The Narrator does a terrific job too.

I loved Eion and Angie. Angie is full of spunk and sass. Eion is very alpha. He’s a little dark and moody, protective, loyal and totally lovable.
The chemistry between the two is off the charts. I loved their antagonistic but playful banter. It had me laughing out loud on several occasions.
Even though Angie doesn’t want to admit it there is no doubt the two belong together. I really loved how supportive and patient Eion was with Angie.
I felt the narrator did an excellent job.
I can’t wait to listen to the next book.

After a blow out in high school, Makenna Halstead and I were happy to never have to cross paths again. Except life has a way of knocking you straight in the teeth with a puck when you least expect it. She hasn’t just returned to my life, she crashed into it like a wrecking ball...into my college kingdom, into my class, and smack dab into the seat next to mine. My new lab partner to be exact.

Shameless King was a wonderful enemies to lovers romance. I liked the characters a lot and enjoyed the banter between them. I really felt for Makenna. It hurt my heart to hear what happened when she was younger and how she dealt with it.
This was definitely a story about not just taking things at face value but looking deeper.
I can’t wait for more. Look forward to listening to the next book.

Sophie has the whole girl-next-door look about her, mixed with a double dose of trouble. And while there's no denying she's hot, the last thing I should be thinking about is how smooth her sun-kissed skin would feel pressed against my body.

Wow, I think this one is my new favorite from Mrs. Seabrook. The story was beautifully written. The author did an amazing job pulling me in and engrossing me in the story. I could feel the characters heartbreak, pain, passion and love. Kade and Sophie are two people who have been broken by terrible circumstances. They find courage, strength and solace in each other. Together they both learn to let down their defenses and love again.
I liked the narrators. They did a great job.

Benjamin Sapphire is tall, dark, handsome, and very rich. He’s ex-military who lost more than friends while in combat: he lost a part of himself, literally. Wealth, good looks, and his irresistible charm provide a revolving door of women in his bed. Finding someone to help fill the black hole that was once his heart is another story. Until he meets her.... Jill Baldwin is not just beautiful, blonde, and brilliant; she’s a ball-buster. She knows who she is and what she wants, and won’t settle for anything less.

I loved Breaking Benjamin. It was a heartwarming book that had me reaching for my tissue box a couple of times. The characters are very lovable, especially Benjamin.

Benjamin is a beautiful man with a heart of gold. He would tell people differently but it’s true. After some terribly tragic events happen Benjamin returns home from the military believing he’s broken and unworthy of love. That is until Jill entered his life. She’s a ray of light, a shining beacon in his sea of darkness that has him daring to hope for someone to love him, broken pieces and all.

“I’ll take your heart and I’ll keep it safe, because I love you, too. More than I ever thought possible.”

Benjamin and Jill’s story is one I recommend listening to.

I waited my whole life for Zee St. James to open his eyes and see me. But Port Clover's official bad boy would never view me as anything more than his best friend's little sister. He shattered my heart into thousands of pieces when he left. And I spent years trying to forget him. Trying to banish the memory of that one kiss. I thought I'd moved on. But when he comes crashing back into my life, or rather my apartment - the one he still owns - I'm defenseless against him. Just when I think I might finally get my happily ever after, a web of secrets and betrayal threaten to unravel the hope I finally found in his arms. And I'm faced with the soul-baring question: Is loving Zee worth the torment he inflicts?

Torment is about a boy who not only experienced the tragic loss of someone he loved at young age but also endured the abuse of a parent. It’s about a boy who grows into a broken man that doesn’t believe he’s worthy of anyone’s love. Zee has been running from his past and burying his sorrows in alcohol and drugs. Finally hitting rock bottom Zee decides it’s time for a change. This decision has him going back to his hometown to face the people he’s hurt and try to right the wrongs of his past.
Quinn has loved Zee ever since they were children. Nothing ever happened between the two growing up because Zee was her brother’s best friend. That was until one night they shared a kiss and then Zee disappeared. Six years later and now Zee’s back in town. Quinn is angry with him but still loves him. Seeing past the facade Zee puts on makes Quinn realize just how much pain he’s in. Now she’s determined to get him to open up to her and show that he is worthy of love. Also to show him that he doesn’t need to carry his burdens alone.
I really enjoyed Quinn and Zee’s story and can’t wait for the next book.

Ainsley came into my life in a flurry of vibrant colors, lighting my world up when all seemed lost. It wasn't our quiet nights by the creek or stolen kisses surrounded by a sea of cotton that saved me. It was her. She was my comfort when life threw one ugly tragedy after another at me. Until she dealt me the greatest blow. Now, abandonment, betrayal, and death darken every corner of my life. Anger and hurt burn bright where love and trust once lived. But now she's back.

Ainsley has a kind and generous nature about her. Always putting others needs and happiness before her own. She is also hardworking and determined when she decides to do something.
It was love at first sight when Ainsley an Adrian first met as children. Their friendship and love grew stronger over the years.
Ainsley was Adrian's light in the darkness when times were rough. She was his Sunshine.
They were inseparable. Until one night tragedy struck.
Can their love survive their grief? Will they be able to help each other mend and overcome the heartache?
I loved See Through Heart. It was a beautiful and emotional story about overcoming grief, finding oneself again and giving love a second shot.
I felt the narrators did a wonderful job. I can’t wait to listen to Amie Knight’s next book.

Wow... I absolutely loved Steel Heart. Holden and Miranda’s story crushed my heart into a million little pieces one moment and then had it overflowing with joy and hope for the couple in the next.
Miranda is a character to admire. She had a difficult childhood and experience the loss of someone dear to her at a young age but didn’t let her hardships make her into a bitter person. Instead she’s selfless and caring. She’s a woman both beautiful on the inside and out.
Holden seems like a rude and grumpy man on the outside looking in but really he is a man who has tragically lost a great deal in a short amount of time. Deeply hidden under his ruff exterior is a kind and loving man. A man who may even be a secret romantic.
Miranda’s persistence has Holden opening up and letting her in. She becomes the bright light shining in his sea of darkness bring him back to life. Just when it seemed like things where looking up something happens that may cause Holden to lose it all again.
I really loved both narrators. They did a fantastic job and I look forward to listening to more stories narrated by them.
