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!!!

Libby Reed is over it. Or that’s what she tells herself. She’s lusted after one of New York’s bravest for years, but firefighter Antonio Moretti has doused her interest for the last time. As much as she wants the jerk, they can’t even be in the same room without setting each other off…which might be a problem now that she’s volunteered to help out in his family’s restaurant. Antonio’s been burned before. Now he knows better than to trust a pretty face and follow another pair of long legs into heartbreak. But while Libby might rub him the wrong way, he can’t deny the heat between them.

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!

A week in Las Vegas and she will feel better about herself. At least that's what Dacotah Miller is hoping the case will be. Left at the altar, heart broken and ashamed, Dacotah takes the opportunity - the chance to get away - offered by her girlfriends; the opportunity to escape her mundane life in the middle-of-nowhere Wisconsin. But what Dacotah doesn't know is that lurking in Las Vegas is the chance of a lifetime, a dream come true, in the form of Derek Hunter.

This was my first listen of Zoey Derrick. I wasn't sure I was going to enjoy but I was more than pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed the build up of the main characters as well as the supporting ones.
I listened to narrations by Holly Fielding before. While she isn't on my top 5 of female narrators, she was able to play Dakota perfectly. I find that I have to speed her up and listen to her at a speed of 120. Her male dominant voice didn't quite do it for me. I think this story would do to have a real man read the part of
⭐Derek/Orion.⭐Especially the epilogue and the hunt.
All that said it was a great distraction while sitting in chemo this week. I would absolutely listen to another book by Zoey Derrick. I would also listen to Holly Fielding again. She has a sweet and innocent quality to her voice. Which helps with character growth.
The above statement are my opinions and thoughts. If they help you decide to try this book great. If I enjoy a book even a little it's worth a few kind words. Really I'm an soooooooo thankful to authors and narrators for their talents because they help me and others not only survive but live this life with a little fun on the side.

I enjoyed Danica & Grier's story. it was filled with intense passion, desire & pain. Tessa Bailey wrote a powerful peace here but Jacob Morgan & Lola Canela brought this story to life. I must admit that I have a book boyfriend crush on Mr. Morgan but don't tell my husband 😉

I enjoyed this book so much more than the first one in this,series. I'm hoping for more in the series.

This my very own opinion and yours may differ. However with nearly 800 Audible titles in my library I know what I like. If you click buy, I hope you enjoy as much as I did.

I knew something was wrong the second she walked in the door tonight; I just couldn't put my finger on what it was. Same hair color. Same legs. Same face. Except...I look harder. At the small dimple beneath her lip that wasn't there the last time we went out. And her laugh - that laugh isn't as loud. This isn't the girl I've gone out with the past few weeks. It's her twin sister, and they've switched places on me.

I must admit that the reason I originally purchased this book was because of Jacob Morgan. I needed a Jacob Morgan fix and this was one of a few of his that I hadn't listened too. This said I was not disappointed. Especially when Jacob bust out the Spanish. Holy crap now I have way more ear porn than should be legal.

So because I wanted more of Jacob I would not have minded if the story had more everything. Although I believe the book has just the right amount of Lucy. I would have especially enjoyed an Amelia & Dante epilogue. They were a Homerun just as Erin & Jacob intended. A perfect book couple.

The length of the book left me wanting more. I will take a look at other books by Ney as this book was sweet.

The first time I met Jade Jameson, I lost my words and accidentally dropped a beer bottle, smashing it to the ground. The Broadway star sister of my brother's wife had paid us a surprise visit on Christmas. Quite simply, she was the most beautiful woman I'd ever seen; I was mesmerized. I'd made a fool of myself, and to make matters worse, my girlfriend was standing right there when it happened. Jade went back to New York, and we didn't cross paths again for a year - until one night when a Facebook notification lit up my screen, setting off a chain of events that would change my life.

First, love the play on words/names in the title. Really sometime it's the little things.

I wanted to read a short HEA while at chemo. Well this slice of perfection was exactly what the love doctor ordered. With these short romances I've been listening too lately, I have found 5 out of 6 too be to short. I'm greedy and wanted more, more, more!

It amazes me how in such a short book our author Penelope Ward was able to develop such strong characters. Jacob Morgan and Andi Arndt were able to bring the story and the characters to life like the pros that they are. I feel the love, passion & friendship from start to finish.

I hope you enjoy Jaded & Tyed as much as I did. But remember this review is my personal opinion. Your opinion may vary. ENJOY!!!

For seven years Rebecca has brightened my office with her wit and her smile. She manages both my hockey team and my sanity. I don't know when I started waking in the night, craving her.

I was looking for something a lot less intense than the last few books I've listened too. This was a slice of heaven. It had just enough bumps on the way to forever. There were twist here and hot sexy love everywhere.

The 3 narrator's are without a doubt pros and telling a story so good, that for a short time you are actually there with your book character's. Zachary Webber & Joe Hempel are on my favorite narrator list. Virginia Rose is newer to my ears but she was perfect as the beautifully sassy and intelligent heroine.

Cannot wait for the next book on the series. It great to get brief updates on characters from previous books in the series. The wait between books is brutal.

Sarina Bowen is a talented romance writer. This is at least my 8th book by her.

How long until the next Brooklyn Bruisers story to arrive on Audible? This waiting is torture!!!

If you could you would know that I loved the story by Trish McCallan. The "spiritual" connection between a Seal team always makes me envious then you add a "deeper" soul altering connection between a Seal & his soulmate and I just going to die now. So I can come back as the Seals Soulmate.
Of course you can't have a Navy Seal story without some bad ass mission. There is one hell of one of those. It was such a unique mission which impressed me. The depth of the details were amazing!!!
My only misgiving about the book was the narration. Angela Dawe's voice was pleasant but it was how it was read. I almost did not make it through the book. I really pushed through it because I wanted to listen to the next book which is narrated by Luke Daniels. It was a long one but now I'm onto the next amazing tale.

Please remember this is just one listeners opinion. This listener does have more than 700 Audible titles in her library but still I am just one listener.

Thirty days ago, my boss, Mr. Wolf of Wall Street, came to me with an offer I couldn't refuse: Sign my name on the dotted line and pretend to be his fiancée for one month. If I agreed, he would let me out of my employment contract with a "very generous" severance package. The rules were pretty simple: No intimate kissing, no actual sex. Just pretend to love each other for the press, even though I've secretly wanted to knock that sexy smirk off his face since the first day we met.
