Multiple companies are vying for my new security software, but when the men of Pentabyte turn their attention on me, it seems they want more than just my code. They're at the top of their game - intelligent, driven, wealthy - and they have me thinking maybe I want more, too. But everything I've worked for is on the line. Do I dare to mix business with pleasure when the stakes are this high?

Wow - I have not been a huge fan of RH stories, but this is not your typical RH. Instead of the highly erotic sex based love stories, this one actually has a plot and characters that you want to know more about. Bethany is fighting her way in the male dominant world of computer programming. Pentabyte is a company who wants to buy her work. But it is not until she gets closer with all five men does the romance start to smolder. This is a slow burn that has a great story with perfect narrators. I look forward to more in the series.

What can you do when the new client you have to work with is the same man you had sex with the night before? Lacey and Alex make the best of a very bad situation and in the end fall love. This story had me laughing out loud numerous times. The narrator did a very good job of putting the emotions out there and made the story very enjoyable to listen to. I look forward to more by this author.

Wow - this is my first book by this author and it will not be my last. From the opening gut wrenching lines right up to the very end this story had me on the edge of my seat. It is filled with romance, suspense and heart wrenching angst. Ryker and Wren need to go from hell back to reality in order to find love in the end. Perfect narration and I cannot wait for more in this series.

One break is all The Crow Brothers need, and we’re about to get it. Johnny Outlaw, rock legend and lead singer of The Resistance, is here to watch us play. But he’s not the only familiar face in the crowd - killer little body, heart-shaped face, and drop-dead gorgeous. Hannah Nichols sitting at the bar makes it hard to concentrate with sparks already reigniting. The beauty was never a groupie, and tonight she’s not here to catch our show.

This was the perfect combination of a fabulous storyline mixed with deep emotion and narrators that made the story come to life. Hannah and Jet have a past but it is not until she seeks him out to let him know he is the father to her cousin's son does their past collide. But can Hannah open up and forgive him after her family had labeled Jet as a dead beat when he never knew the child existed? Can the two also find happiness and love while fighting for custody of young Alphie? Dripping with emotion and beautifully written characters I cannot wait to read more in the series.

One night at the bar with a rugged stranger leads Kat down a path of ever lasting and heart warming change. You never know who you will meet at a bar.

Is it wrong to be attracted to the groom in a wedding? Or, I thought he was the groom! No, this guy is open and single and...into me? Is he into me? He'd be the first for quite some time. I have to admit, seeing all these weddings come and go can be a bit much when you go home all by yourself. But is it ethical to date a client's brother?

What a great story to listen to. The narrator got better as the story progressed and you will laugh out loud in some parts. When Julia uses a bridal coordinator to plan her outlandish wedding, her groom cannot be bothered to help make the plans. When her brother ends up helping her sparks fly between Hunter and Toby. Can the two last when Julia fires Toby for putting the bridezilla in her place? Simply adorable!!

Right out of the Marines, Slade's first mistake was patching into a club that was headed down a destructive path. His second was rolling into Shadow Valley on a search for answers. He had no plans to patch into another club, even one like the DAMC, and he certainly wasn't looking for an ol' lady. Especially a ball-buster like Diamond, who could singe the hair off a brother's nuts with just a look. DAMC born and bred, Diamond was ready to give up on becoming an ol' lady until the heavily tattooed biker rolled into town on his Harley. Problem is, months later Slade's still a mystery.

This series keeps getting better and better. Although the rivalry between the Warriors and the DAMC is still ongoing, you get more info on what might have started the war. Unfortunately the information may just be the one thing that could tear Slade and Diamond apart. Slade is not sure where his position in the MC is and Diamond just wants to belong to someone, but can the two overcome the obstacles the past has put in place? Or will true love conquer all? With an emotional storyline and narrators that are just perfect you cannot help but fall in love with this audio-book. I could not stop listening and I cannot wait for more in the series.

Though the club blood runs thick in Axel’s veins, he’s despised by them for being a cop. They also hate him because his family turned their back years ago not only on the club but his brother, the president of the Dirty Angels MC. However, he's loved Bella forever, watched her marry the wrong man, one who broke her in almost every imaginable way, and yet she's still the strongest person he knows. Despite their rivaling families, he won't let anything stand in the way of making her his this time. Bella hasn’t known anything other than alpha bikers her whole life.

All I can say is WOW - you better have Kleenex available when you listen to this book!! I have always been a fan of this series and my favorites were always the couple it all started with but they have now been dethroned as Axel and Bella have won my heart. This audio book was filled with so much drama, anguish, angst and love that I had to stop listening and wipe my tears before I could continue. The narrators were spot on and brought the characters to life. Two extremely broken souls finally finding there way to each other. But will their families accept them or are they going to have to walk away from their entire lives to be together? With an extremely emotional journey as the storyline and characters who have become bigger and better than the rest in the series this book cannot be missed. Jeanne St. James has outdone herself!!

Dear Melrose, The first time I met you, you were a stranger. The second time, you were my roommate. The third time, you made it clear you were about to become the biggest thorn my side had ever known. You sing way too loud in the shower and use all the hot water. You’re bossy as hell. You make my life all kinds of complicated. But no matter how hard I try, I can’t stop thinking about you. Truthfully...I can’t stop wanting you. I was going to tell you this.

Absolutely loved the storyline throughout the book. The characters were well rounded and strong. I will definitely read this one again and look forward to more in the series. The only downfall was the narrator. She had a beautiful voice for the female characters but was not a very strong male, but was still an enjoyable audiobook.
