Leila's years on the carnie circuit were certainly an education. What she didn't learn: how to be a vampire, or how to be married to the most famous vampire of them all. Adjusting to both has Leila teetering on a knife edge between passion and peril, and now the real danger is about to begin...

Sorry to say it. Too wordy, and just plain uninteresting. I can't get past it.

Centuries ago, Illarion was betrayed - a dragon made human against his will, then forced to serve humanity as a dragonmount in their army, and to fight for them in barbaric wars, even while he hated everything about them. Enslaved and separated from everyone he knew and from his own dragon brothers, he was forced into exile in a fey realm where he lost the only thing he ever really loved.

I love SK and her books!
But, this? – I don't know what happened? The story is so boring, lacking her normal talent, and there's just no "Spark, Passion, or Love". felt between the Two main characters in the plot; if there's was an actually a plot? – If so, I most definitely missed it completely!

Sadly, I had to stop listening; After many attempts to pick it up again and try to connect, it was blatantly impossible for me...

I had to leave this book as unfinished, feeling frustrated and deeply disappointed as well.
I was so exited for its release too. — I miss my "Dark-Hunters"..!!!

From bedroom performances to center stage, Memphis Black's dreams have come true. Together with his band mates - Finn, River, and Billy B - he takes some time for fun in the sun in Miami while gathering inspiration to finish their first full-length album. Some down time before hitting the road to tour the country, spreading their kind of rock like an STD. Tallia Priest, a preacher's daughter, grew up next door to Madison Black, her polar opposite and very best friend. Tallia has harbored a crush on Madison's older brother, Memphis, for a lifetime. A boy like him would never notice a girl like her, yet he did...once.

For two people ambivalent about dating and love, they sure get naked around each other an awful lot.... London Hughes is very content to surf daily, tend bar, hang out with her group of friends, and slowly orient herself in the years after college. Everything's going great and according to the nonplan. But when a wave knocks her for a loop one morning, then Luke Sutter's flirtatious smile knocks her for another that evening, she veers slightly off course...and into his path.

It was. . . SWEET. - It was Sweet!! That's the Problem! (Ugh, I got tired of waiting for the Excitement to begin; by Chapter 17, outta 28; I was Done)! This is supposed to be a Biker/MC background book. MC Guys, well. -- They are tough guys with big hearts we find out as we read these types of novels with an MC background. But. This? --- This MC is not an MC, it's a Club with husbands & wives that own motorcycles and show family ties and loving brother and sisterhoods. NO ACTION, however. I feel oversaturated with sappy`ness!! Sigh....Disappointed.

My second and last time being disappointed with KA Novels. Sad, since I do believe K. Russell is a great Narrator for her books. I hope Russell finds another good gig soon because KA Books have "jumped the shark", so to speak. IMHO, of course. . . .

For the first time in my life I know what it's like to be completely and truly adored by a man who loves me for exactly who I am, a high-functioning autistic with more personality quirks than there are stars in the Texas Hill Country night sky. Some people think my boyfriend, Smoke, is a total biker psycho, a natural born killer who will destroy anyone who threatens what he considers his. They wouldn't be wrong, but he's so much more than that. He's my salvation....

Cassie swore she'd never forgive Ethan for breaking her heart when they were in acting school years ago. He was her one great love, and when he refused to love her back, a part of her died forever...or so she thought. Now she and Ethan are sharing a Broadway stage, and he's determined to win her back. Finally he's able to say all the things she needed to hear years ago...but can she believe him? Has he really changed, and what makes this time different from all his other broken promises?

This is a conclusion to Leisa Rayven's: "BAD ROMEO" ~ I enjoyed Bad Romeo a lot; but, let me tell ya`...this conclusion will utterly capture you. The most addictive book I've read in quite awhile; staying-up until 04:00am to finish a book is rare for me these days, however, it is literally 04:11am, and I'm done!!

~ HUGE 'Thank yous' to Liesa Rayven; GirL, you write like an Angel that proudly displays the most gorgeous pair of Devil-ish wings!! (More stories, Please)

~ "BROKEN JULIET" was a such a pleasant surprise for me; I am over-the-moon about both of these books!! **Just remember: Read BAD ROMEO first; then, finish-up with BROKEN JULIET...You won't regret it..!!

In a dark and broken kingdom, a ruler has to be fearless to control the streets and the ruthless people who run them. Race Hartman is just bold enough, just smart enough, and just lost enough to wear the crown. Places like the Point will always have bad things and bad people, but the man in control of all that badness can minimize the devastation. Race has a plan, but can he prevent total annihilation without destroying himself?

Didn't hold my interest like the other books could, being somewhat predictable, plus I couldn't relate to the couples 'love-connection', mainly d/t the Narrators -both Male & Female. Regardless, I'll never regret choosing a Jay Crownover Book

Even though Ben broke her heart, Janelle refuses to believe it when Interverse Agent Taylor Barclay tells her Ben is suspected of running a human-trafficking ring across several universes. She vows to uncover the true culprit and rescue the people who have been sold into slavery on alternate Earths - not to mention find Ben and prove his innocence.

Awesome YA series that Adults can easily enjoy as well. I'm kinda picky about my YA novels, as I only have a special handful I'd consider as my Favorites. Being a reader in my late-30's, it takes a special mixture in YA story-lines to keep me really interested. – These books are both great! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
