I'm not sure what I was expecting but it wasn't the well written short & fantastic narration. Although I should have known better with a writing team of AL Jackson. & Rebecca Shea. The story was filled with love & sex and the sweetest passion for living life by the seat of your pants.

I love Maxine Mitchell as she brought K to life. Teddy Hamilton was perfect as the Hollywood Heart Throb. Yummy!

Worth a credit yes but it was included in the Romance Package. So I used my credit to buy the book in the series "One Wild Ride". I hope there are more in this series as this was a light, fun, & sexy listen. it really was the perfect listen after a really tough day. Enjoy!

More, More, More! Is a line from a Billy Idol song if I remember correctly. After listening to Bentley, Aiden & Maddox all you want is More from Melanie Moreland. I was so thankful to find out that Van's story is next. Hopefully we dont have to wait long for the audio version. 😁

Reid's story is so many wonderful things. It's as if you got to be there as this boy grew into a man. Even with the lows he went through he comes out stronger because of the love of his BAM family. He grows into a man we'd all be happy & proud of. ❤

⭐⭐⭐⭐Narration was impeccable ⭐⭐⭐⭐
I'm not sure how John Lane pulls off the nuances of each man's voice from book to book. so impressive and talented he is. His Yoda needs a little work but it was perfectly imperfect. Maxine Mitchell is a stellar partner in crime. I love the strength and vulnerability she is always able to showcase.

Melanie Moreland please give us more in the Vested Interest realm. It is a great place to escape too. ❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤❤

Worth a credit? ABSOLUTELY!!!!
I hope you are able to find what you are looking for. The entire series has been a delightfully distracting from my so called life. Chemo is no joke and the boy's of BAM are the perfect escape.

Opinions are my own and I'm easily made happy 😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁😁

The world’s sexiest firefighter is about to get a second chance with the virgin next door.... He’s bossy, arrogant, and so ridiculously hot that he should come with a warning label and a pair of flame-retardant coveralls. He’s also the boy who broke my heart when we were in high school. I want to move in next door to Ryan O’Dell the way I want to be the virgin gamer geek suddenly in charge of running my sister’s sex-toy factory. Too bad both are written in my stars.

First, you get bonus points it you know where the review title originated.

Secondly, this was an automatic buy for me when it hit the Audible library. I cannot resist Jacob Morgan & Lili Valente.

Lastly, this book was an AMAZING work of art. Fun & Funny! Sweet & Sexy! Happy & Sappy!
It was simply PERFECTION!!!

I must also add that I enjoy Virginia Rose as Cassie and look forward to listening to more by her. Pippa's work is also new to me but again I'll be looking for more of her work. With over 900 titles in my Audible library it is not often that I write a review like this. But i was soooooooo
thrilled with this book that I was inspired to review it. As I write this I have already begun a second listen. I just cant get enough of Happy Cat🐱, Sunshine🌞 , Cassie❤Ryan & George 🐼.

WORTH A CREDIT AND MORE!!! I hope you enjoy it even a fraction as much as I did.

As the proud owner of all 42 Susan Stoker books currently available on Audible; I was wondering how Susan was going to weave another series of Strong, Sexy Seals and their sven Stronger, Smarter & Sexier woman. Then I began to listen and could not stop. I really should know better than to start one of her books after 8pm. i have already started my 2nd listen and love it even more.

Savannah Peachwood was the perfect Caite. And she did a bang up job as Rocco & the others as well. i would actually love one of Susan's Seal series to be done with individual narrators for the male & female leads. Although it is not a must for me, just a personal preference.

This book had adventure, danger, international intrigue, hot seals, bravery, hope, intimacy & tons of sweet kisses. It did not have a ton of sex which added to the strength of the book & relationships. I like the sex as much as the next person in my romantic reads but the amount in the book was perfect.

What else can I say? Besides how soon before the next one is available on Audible? If your new to Susan Stoker I think this would be a great first listen even though it is technically the "legacy" series for a reason. That reason is there was a whole bunch of others Seals that came before them.

I purchase ALL of Susan's books as soon as pre-order is available. With over 900 Erotic romances in my Audible library it is definitely worth a credit in my humble opinion. Enjoy!!!

Zeke Dugan is not a man who walks the straight and narrow. He may have sworn an oath as a trauma doc, but he has zero problem leveraging his medical skills outside a hospital if it means giving the Brotherhood - the group of men he calls family - an advantage. Blood before business. All that changes when shy Gabrielle stumbles into his life and ignites his protective instincts.

I have listened to the entire series. And while I enjoy John Lane's narrations he dosen't make my panties combust like Gary Furlong. His accents are divine especially his Portuguese. He made my ancestral Language the sweetest music to ones ears. I hope and pray he is doing Axle's story. I would pay a small fortune to hear more of his accents especially his Portuguese & Scottish.

Rhenna Morgan I loved the entire series and await Axle as read by Gary Furlong. The brothers are HOT! HOT!! HOT!!! and they are paired with equally strong women which is always a winner. The sexy times vary from book to book but they are written to perfection.

Enjoy!!!

When he walks into a room, he owns it. He consumes my very breath and melts my delicate little panties. From the moment he set eyes on me, he decided I was his. No one - not even my brother, Nix - was going to tell him otherwise. It doesn't matter that Nix is President of the Kings MC Club. Jake wants what he wants, and he'll set out to get it, whatever the cost.

I was pleasantly surprised by this MC Romance. This was a first time listen for me by this author and I am looking forward to the rest of the series. I hope we don't have to wait long.

Troy Duran was a recent find for me and I really have enjoyed the way he gives life to each character. it helps that his voice was made for loving. I would have enjoyed the narrative more had he done the male voice when Peach is talking because Jillian Macie's man voice is not attractive. However Jillian portrays Peach to perfection well the womans voices that is.

I've not listened to many MC Romances. Seriously my personal Audible library of nearly 900 books there are less than ten. I took a chance and I'm glad I did.

worth a credit? Sure it is. Kept me distracted and entertained for hours. Besides what's better than hot sex, love, beautiful men & women and HEA.

Enjoy!

Wherever I went, I heard it: the sound of a purring motorcycle behind me. They never bothered me or said a word. But I knew they were there because of him - Devlin McRae, the head of the local MC. Being followed all the time like this was disconcerting. And lately, the bikes had been getting closer, less secretive, more obvious. What would I do if Devlin ever caught me?

I was in the mood for something a little different and under 4 hours. This was definitely both of those and so much more. I was not expecting it to be soooooooo cavity sweet & romantic. I was also not expecting it to just end the way it did. That is my #1 complaint for this title it seems to end before the story is done. Thankfully in the next book Dev & Kaylie's story is briefly touched upon so you get a little more.

This was a first listen for me by these narrators & author. I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed their narrative of the authors words. I have already started the next book and have purchased the third. It's good cheap fun that's a little dirty.

I hope you enjoy your time with the Devil. I did.

Needed more D More Drama, More Desire, More Depth & More Dick!!!

It was by all accounts too short. Unlike other books in the series it was a snack instead of a whole meal.

Eventhough it was short it was very sweet. HEA for sure. if you need a D-Force quickie this is the perfect book for you. I enjoyed it and am off to listen to another.

Gregory Salinas is not my favorite book boyfriend but he will do. I like to listen to him at a 105-110 speed though. This author seems to have a thing for Mr. S as I haven't yet listened to a book of hers with another narrator.

Still enjoyed all. Worth the $5 bucks ABSOLUTELY!!!

I'm sad at the thought that this was the last book in the series but for the life of me I could only think of possible spin off books.

It is hard for me to choose a favorite out of the series. They were all sweet, hot, funny and sexy. The performance in Tossed by Alexander Cendese & Carly Robin's complimented the story written by Aurora Rose Reynolds perfectly.

The mothers in this series crack me up and Ina the elderly old woman neighbor is the biggest hoot of all.

I think one of my favorite parts of this book is the very end. it was better than a fairy tale ending.

These books were wonderfully entertaining and well executed. This is of course my opinion but with over 800 books in my Audible library I'm kinda of addicted. And all but like 5 are in the Romance/Erotica/HEA genre. I HATE sad books and sometimes cannot even listen to sad stories.

I hope you take a little time for yourself and ENJOY this book. I did!!!

A Closet, Toys and Happiness...if you chose Marie Force you'd be correct. You would also be correct if you Quantum, Christian or Aileen.

I didn't understand the review that said, "They hated the book and that Christian was a selfish prick." So I had give it a listen for myself. Especially Knowing that the members of the Quantum group tended to be the most giving and loving cast of characters. I'm glad I decided to judge for myself because as I suspected the two main characters as well as the every supporting one were the most selfless bunch.

Marie Force did a great job of intertwining Christian & Aileen's story with the previous love stories. I am looking forward to the next tale of sex, love & understanding. Not sure why every other review says this is the last, it's not. Think about who's left in the cast and you will have you next one.

Narration by Kate Genevieve and Sam Welles was good. Kate played Aileen to perfection. A strong, yet submissive and let's not forget survivor. As a Breast Cancer survivor myself I experienced many of the emotions & situations that her character did. They were all spot on.

I haven't listened to much by Sam but thought his character would have a stronger deeper voice. Too me he sounded like a little boy. And during BDSM scenes this felt a bit weird. I believe that his "normal" voice would have carried the character better. The director should have caught this.

Overall I 100% enjoyed the latest Quantum tale. I would recommend reading at a minimum Natalie & Flynns story before this one.

The observations contained in this review are all mine. I enjoy most listens (some more than others) as they each provide me with hours of entertainment, lust, love, angst, hope, sex, happiness, sadness, & joy. For this I am thankful. With nearly 800 Audible titles in my library you can trust that I am not doing this for the money. My Audible addiction is expensive but worth it.

Enjoy whatever you choose to listen too. I do!
