I thought Jeanne St James could not top Double Dare but she has gone and done it Daring Proposal has all the hotness you want from a Menage book but the story is so much more. it follows Eve who after a sad loss decides that she wants a little bit of Ren an ex football players so when he come up for sale at a charity auction she decides to bid on him and also his team mate Cole who has had a crush on Ren for years. At first they date separate but Eve wants both men together and her wish comes true after some trickery. This book is great you get to feel Ren fighting himself trying to figure out if his best friend can be more than just a friend. Cole is so cocky but great and he is so gentle with Ren trying to make him feel safe. I loved that you got to see Quinn, Logan and Ty and see what they have been up to. Ava Lucas does most of the narration she has such a great voice and true story teller. Tor Thom does a fair amount as well and his voice is liquid amazing. JF Harding only has a small amount but his voice is just wow. I loved all 3 and they did a fantastic job. If you like MMF/MFM book this series is for you give it a listen or read you won't be disappointed.

This is a very different story to anything I have listened to. I loved the main characters Niccolaio and Minka. Niccolaio is from a crime family and to save his brother he had to kill another family member but his brother saw him and put out a hit on him so he had to go into hiding. Along comes Minka a sad a lonely girl who is fighting to win back her sister from care so she sleeps with rich men in the hope of getting money but it never works out for her. When Niccolaio and Minka meet it;s not the usual love story they are both almost killed a few times by hit men out to find Nick. I love that they had one of the hit men as a prisoner found this funny loved when Minka was playing cards and because his hands were tied she had to play for him so made sure she won. This was such a great listen. I loved Lucy Laurel she held my attention well and made the story come to life. DC Cole is just Mr Alpha voice love his voice so much. An amazing story well worth a listen.

I wanted to forget him so many times. Erase the memories we shared and pretend he didn’t exist. It would have made his absence easier to accept. Lucas Rivers broke my heart more than once. In my world he was my guy, the one I’d grow old with and laugh with. But things aren’t that simple, and time changes everything. That naive girl with dreams of happily-ever-afters was gone. I didn’t need a man to complete me. I was enough - no, I was more than enough. I was strong and determined. I was Madelyn Emery and never again would a boy break my heart.

I received this title for free in exchange for an unbiased review

I enjoyed this audio book very much it was a nice story of childhood best friends Madelyn & Lucas. Madelyn always told Lucas that they would marry one day but he said they were just friends. As they grow up they start to grow apart and Lucas leaves to follow his dreams. When he returns years later he wants the friendship with Madelyn back. I just loved they way this story was told it kept me gripped and wanting to know more. I loved that the two families live next to each other so the parents talk and they know how much Lucas regrets letting Madelyn go all those years ago. Sarah Puckett did a great job and I loved her voice for Lucas. This was a enjoyable listen.

Dylan Culderway is more than hockey’s top defenseman. He’s the kind of guy who’s always there to help a friend. Plus, he’s a true gentleman. More importantly, certainly to the ladies, is that Dylan is hot enough to melt ice. Dylan’s no womanizer, though. He doesn’t have time for love. Seems he’s too busy running away from his past. Or is he running to his past?

Well S.R Grey has done it again another great story in the series. This one follows Dylan and Chloe. Chloe is just out of an abusive marriage and Dylan is the handsome hockey player who just wants to right the wrongs of his past. They meet and sparks fly. But things start happening that could change everything. I love that it keeps you guessing. I think Dylan was the perfect boyfriend. I love this series and this one is another great story. I liked that some f the past characters showed up. Reagan West did a great job with all the voices and telling the story. I can't wait for more in the series.

This is an amazing story of Sy and Eve, bullied by Sy at school for no reason, when they grow up eve discovers the reason Sy was so awful to her for all those years and she sees him in a different light. Because of this love blossoms but it's not an easy love story because of everything Sy went through he is broken and is so much pain. Eve is his lifeline and makes sure he does not hurt himself. But when the past comes back a terrifying event happens and Sy must step up to save Eve. I did not know anything about this book and I am glad as it was nothing like i thought it was gonna be. The pain when Sy talks is gut wrenching and so sad but Eve is so great at making him believe that things will get better. I loved Parker (Sy's best friend) he was such a great friend to both Sy and Eve he was the voice of reason, I can't wait to listen to his story Where I Am. Charley Ongel and Tor Thom were just amazing I love the duet narration it works so well and they do it with perfection. Charley is so good at changing her voice from young girl to adult her voice is amazing i love it and as for Tor well he has so much expression he got the character of Sy spot on just great. The story is brought to life with them reading/acting it out, I just love them together. A great listen to an emotional story.

Micah Fontenot can't seem to find what he's looking for. Not everything anyway. He's got a great job at Devil's Playground, he's even got a full time lover in his bed, yet still, something is missing. Hayden Wellington wants the best of both worlds. He understands Micah on levels even Micah doesn't. Now that he has half of what he needs, he's just biding his time until everything falls into place. Lindy Weatherford refuses to be the hum-drum friend who doesn't have a story to tell. Unfortunately, that's what she's become.

Would you listen to Without Restraint again? Why?

OMG yes this is the hottest book I have listened to in a long while it was amazing.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Without Restraint?

When Micah tells Hayden he loves him had me smiling so wide was such a great moment.

What about Tor Thom and Charley Ongel ’s performance did you like?

They were just so good at telling the super hot story had me blushing on a number of occasions. I love both voices they are just so good.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Lindy is stood up by her friends I felt so sorry for her.

Any additional comments?

This is a short story but holy hell did Nicole Edwards fit lots of very steamy scenes in. Tor Thom and Charley Ongel are just perfect I love their voices so much emotion.

Isaiah Fontenot had never played the role of white knight. At least not until his boss, Maximillian Adorite, gave him the order to. That was when he found himself coming face-to-face with the stunning Cassidy Owens, the woman in need of saving. Cassidy only thought she was hiding from the men who were looking for her brother. Not knowing where to go, Cassidy opted to hide in plain sight, taking up temporary residence in a Vegas hotel near her condo. Turned out, she wasn't as good at hiding as she had planned.

Where does Without Regret rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I liked this book and was worried that it was not that long but the story was great. I think it flowed well and the story progressed well. I just want more from the main characters I would of loved it to show more as I feel they both had more back story. That saying I very much enjoyed this book and look forward to reading book 2 which i have in my library.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Without Regret?

The sex scenes were smoking hot.

Which scene was your favorite?

I think when Isaiah tells Cassidy he loves her was so touching.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I just loved the way the relationship developed it was very sweet

Any additional comments?

I would of loved to find out more about both characters but I don't feel this impacted on the book. I enjoyed it very much this was a great story with interesting characters.

I'm a man without a conscience. I deal in murder and mayhem. I'm the best at what I do. Frankie Helburn is supposed to be an easy job. A means to flush her father out of hiding. Simple. Except there isn't anything simple about Frankie or the secrets she's keeping. She's stubborn as hell and the sexiest god damn thing I have ever seen, sending dark, dirty animalistic desire coursing through my veins. She's cocaine with legs. A f--king addiction that makes me question things I've never questioned before.

Would you consider the audio edition of Up in Smoke to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version yet but the audio is amazing

What was one of the most memorable moments of Up in Smoke?

I loved when all the characters from past king books were all together.

Which character – as performed by Lucy Rivers and Troy Duran – was your favorite?

Troy Duran was amazing told the story so well. I was a little unsure about Lucy at first but after a very short while she was great.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

No smoke without fire

Any additional comments?

I am a big fan of TM Fraziers King series so was excited to listen to Smokes story and it was just as amazing as the other books in the series. can't wait for more stories from the gang.
