Life in Devil's Gate is hell on earth. With no Regent to maintain order between the species, humans live in fear of what lurks in the shadows while the vampires, wolves, and fae that inhabit Devil's Gate battle for territory and power. And 19-year-old Estelle Cotillard is caught up in the middle. Harboring a dark secret, Estelle tries to stay out of trouble, but when vampire Gage Coreil starts showing up insisting she needs protection, she has to decide: stay in the shadows or become who she was always supposed to be.

Interesting beginning to a series! Witches, vampires, fae, and shifters all reside in Devil's Gate. Celeste/Estelle has some big shoes to fill and her role is critical. The "harem" aspect is just in its infancy in book one. I'm curious to see where Grace White takes this series. Sarah Puckett was a good narrator overall. There were a few words that had a bit of a southern twang and I don't know if that was part of the story or her personal accent. Because it was infrequent, it kind of threw me off and made me notice it more than I would have if it were consistent. However, that personal issue aside, she was a solid narrator.

Kason "Benny" Sawyer was the last single man on his Navy SEAL team. He loved his teammates like brothers and respected each and every one of their women. They'd all been through hell and they deserved their current happiness. But seeing the love between his friends and their women made it tough to be the odd man out all the time.

Because I'm Watching wasn't my favorite of the Virtue Falls books, but it was good. I felt it was just missing something. I can't even put my finger on exactly what it was though. As I have mentioned before though, Andi Arndt is a wonderful narrator!

Joe Kenda investigated 387 murder cases during his 23 years with the Colorado Springs Police Department and solved almost all of them. And he is ready to detail the cases that are too gruesome to air on television, cases that still haunt him, and the few cases where the killer got away. These cases are horrifyingly real, and the detail is so mesmerizing you won't be able to turn it off.

My husband and I are such Investigation Discovery buffs so when we got hooked on Homicide Hunter, I just had to snag his book too. He tells you his life story really-how he became a cop, how he and his wife made it through the trials of him being a cop, and even a bit about his two very interesting kids! While not really "true crime" focused, it was a great listen and I loved having him narrate it.

My friends want me to get laid. So much so that they plastered my ugly mug all over campus in bold printed letters: Are you the lucky lady who's going to break our roommate's cherry? Him: Socially awkward man with average-sized penis looking for willing sexual partner. You: Must have a pulse. He will reciprocate with oral. Text him at: 555-254-5551. The morons can't even spell. And the texts I've been receiving are what wet dreams are made of. But I'm not like these douchebags, no matter how hard they try to turn me into one.

Listen, as a high school teacher, this book totally spoke to me! I mean, obviously not the hooking up with your coworker thing, but the interactions with students and some of the student behaviors were just so real. Chase writes such great characters and I love the way she layers humor with emotion. And Webber and Arndt are masters at romance narration so don't miss out!

Listen, Cassandra Clare can weave a tale. If you haven't read her books yet, you really are missing out on seriously well written fantasy/paranormal teen angst! And, James Marsters is simply a masterful narrator. He made this book (and Lord of Shadows) alive. It is certainly a series I will relisten to frequently!

Julian Savage was golden. Powerful. But tormented. For the brooding hunter walked alone. Always alone, far from his Carpathian kind, alien to even his twin. Like his name, his existence was savage. Until he met the woman he was sworn to protect. When Julian heard Desari sing, rainbows swamped his starving senses. Emotions bombarded his hardened heart. And a dark hunger to possess her flooded his loins, blinding him to the danger stalking him.
