It's a great play on words and catches ones attention. All books should be narrated this way. It's glorious and keeps the listener fully engaged.

When reserved flight attendant Bianca gets one look at billionaire hotel owner James Cavendish, she loses all of her hard-won composure. For a girl who can easily juggle a tray of champagne flutes at 35,000 feet in three inch heels, she finds herself shockingly weak-kneed from their first encounter. The normally unruffled Bianca can't seem to look away from his electrifying turquoise gaze. They hold a challenge, and a promise, that she finds impossible to resist, and she is a girl who is used to saying no and meaning it.

This is a beautiful story of survival, friendship, triumph, and love--provided by several points of view. The characters are wonderful and believable. I was especially drawn to the special relationship between Bianca and SteFan. I loved the selflessness of them both and the unspoken vow of protectiveness. No ego, just pure love and devotion. Mr. Beautiful walks into this scenario and it was a pleasure to read how he handled it.

I read this book as a dare or challenge in this genre. I loved the first book and I just had to find out the ending with Mr. Beautiful. Have to tell you...READ ALL ABOUT IT! THE CREDITS ARE WORTH EVERY DIME.

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.

First, I must say that I have come to crave the voice of Zachary Webber. He makes listening SOOO MUCH BETTER. He has that voice that engages you until the very end. So, Whitney, he's a keeper!
Second, I loved the banter between all the characters and the humor in this story. Mr. Wolf and Emily were perfect and adding in the comic relief of Brenton was a great formula of success.
Third, I loved this story so much that I have listened to it multiple times.

With the fate of the world at stake, their love never stood a chance. All those years gone by without even an explanation for why he left. Rachel poured her broken heart into her work, but the memory of him never really went away. If only she could see him again. It's been so long though now, there is no reason he could give to justify the pain he put her through.

He awakens encapsulated in dirt with no knowledge of how he came to be there. Riddled with injuries, he can remember neither his past nor who he is. Nor can he remember what he is. But surely no mortal man could survive being buried deep beneath the earth. All he knows with certainty is that the soothing voice and presence of the woman moving around above enables him to endure the agony of his wounds. And he will do whatever it takes to be with her.

I was so glad that Stan survived his last battle and how he was found. Seth and the others never gave up looking for Stan and when he finally appeared -- the celebration was so heartwarming. I absolutely love this series and the world of the immortal guardians. I'm enjoying the journey of them battling Seth's biggest nemesis and how they each find their own eternal loves along the way. It's one BIG & HAPPY family.

I stumbled on to this series by chance and have loved each and every book. KEEP THE STORIES COMING!!

Twenty-six-year-old Gaby Barreto might be a lot of things (loyal, sarcastic, one of the guys, and a pain in the butt, depending on which family member you ask), but dumb isn't one of them. When her twin brother invites her to go on tour as his band's merch girl, she isn't exactly screaming at the top of her lungs with joy. But with no job opportunities pounding on her door, an ex-boyfriend she would still like to castrate, and no end in sight to moving out of her parents' house in Dallas, it would be dumb to say no to the chance of a lifetime.

This is a wonderful love story! The characters are very well written and one can fall in love with them from page one. I like the fact that this story shows the many different kinds of love there are and the depths of each can actually go. VERY WORTH A CREDIT! I loved it so much, I will listen to it again.

Gryphons flying past skyscrapers? Wizards battling it out in coffeehouses? Women riding motorcycles with large swords strapped to their backs? All normal sights since the Great Collision happened twenty-six years ago. Well, not normal for everyone. Larissa Miller may have been born after the Great Collision, but as a history teacher who lives in the human-only city, she has never come into contact with any other race or species, nor has she wanted to.

I discovered this author by mistake and fell in love with this story. I could not or wanted to stop listening. The characters are nicely developed and curious enough to believe. I haven't read many stories about gargoyles nor their origins. It was quite interesting and different from other storylines. I really enjoyed it and recommend it highly.

I loved this story! The characters are loveable and presented as "normal". This story did tap into a couple of real-world topics and I liked the comedic way they were presented and resolved. I have reread this story because I just loved the "YAKKY" factor. It made me laugh out loud. Worth reading!
