My dad needs me to cool it for a bit. With conservative investors in town wanting to buy his flagship Fifth Avenue jewelry store, he needs me not only to zip it up, but to look the part of the committed guy. Fine. I can do this for Dad. After all, I've got him to thank for the family jewels. So I ask my best friend and business partner to be my fiancée for the next week. Charlotte's up for it. She has her own reasons for saying yes to wearing this big rock.

I absolutely love Lauren Blakely's writing, and I love listening to her audio books even more. She always has the perfect narrators to go with the characters.

While this relationship starts off as a sham to help his father's business, it turns into so much more. These two have unbelievable chemistry and will steam up whatever room they're in. They never meant to fall in love, but you can't fight fate.

I have listened to so many of Lauren's audio books and this is by far my favorite!

Years ago, I fell in love with my best friend's little brother. Then, he took his own life, leaving me shattered and unable to piece my heart back together. I've been a zombie for nine long years. Until a crazy, gorgeous man walked into Heathens Ink and injected color back into my world of gray. No matter how hard I try to resist Beck, he just won't give up on me. I would need steel willpower to withstand his gorgeous long legs in those high heels and his drawer full of lacy lingerie. But is this just a kinky hook up, or does it have the possibility for more?

I absolutely hands down, love this series. I knew this story would be an emotional one because of Gage and how lost he seemed to be throughout this series. It was absolutely heartfelt and I couldn't walk away.

Two lost souls coming together and helping to mend the holes in each other's hearts. It was a highly emotional and sexy read.

I listened to the audio book and felt it was spot on. Narration was perfect and brought extra depth to the story with how well the narrator expressed the characters feelings. This series can be read as standalones, but I highly recommend reading or listening to them all.

Maximoff Hale is a force of nature. A ship unwilling to be steered. Headstrong, resilient, and wholly responsible - the 22-year-old alpha billionaire can handle his unconventional life. Born into one of the most famous families in the country, his celebrity status began at birth. He is certified American royalty. When he's assigned a new 24/7 bodyguard, he comes face-to-face with the worst case scenario: being attached to the tattooed, MMA-trained, Yale graduate who's known for "going rogue" in the security team - and who fills 1/3 of Maximoff's sexual fantasies.

Wow. One of the best series I've ever read has come to an end. I don't want to say goodbye. Helen has me addicted, and I may just need rehab to get over the withdrawals. Action packed, high intensity thrills is what this book is all about. I thought my heart was going to stop from going into overdrive for so long.

The suspense will have you on the edge of your seat as everything comes to a head. I admit, Helen kept blowing my mind at every turn. I never knew what was going to happen next. I love when books are unpredictable. The twists and turns are around every corner which prevents me from going into any detail of the book. I would never ruin such perfection for anyone. It will be super hard saying goodbye, but I know whatever Helen gives us next will be equally as amazing.

It started with an anonymous post by someone who didn't want to live anymore. I read it over and over again, unable to get it out of my mind. What if my brother Johnny had posted something like this before he'd taken his own life? Would someone have been able to save him? I've been living a lie for 16 long years, and I'm not sure how much longer I'll be able to keep it up. And when a beautiful, broken man walks into my tattoo shop asking for a second chance at life, I know I'll never be able to turn him away.

This book absolutely 100% stole my heart. I was instantly in love with Knox and Adam. They both have the sweetest, kindest hearts and souls. This was also my first book by this author. I will tell you that after listening to this audio book, I will either be reading or listening to every book K. M. Neuhold writes! She is now on my must read list.

We meet Knox in the most unimaginable state. He has withstood so many hardships at such a young age that noone should have to go through. He is so vulnerable but meeting Adam on an app gives him hope. He just has to go through hell to get to him.

Adam lost his younger brother to a drug overdose, and now feels such guilt over the secret he's been hiding his whole life, being bisexual! He feels that maybe if he had told him that he wouldn't have felt so alone. This leaves him feeling the need to help anyone that reminds him of his brother. When he meets Knox online, he immediately is drawn to him, but when Knox suddenly disappears he feels hopeless and like he let someone else down. He believes Knox is dead.

When Knox shows up at Heathens Ink, Adam has no idea who he is but will not turn away a soul in need. He soon finds out that this is his Knox and the rest is history. This book is so good that you can't get enough. The past never goes away though and it may just bring everything they have crashing down on them.

Wow. Sloane has once again blown me away with book 2 of this series. I didn't think it could get any better than book 1,but I was clearly mistaken!

The tortured soul that Ronin displayed will have you wanting to hold him and tell him everything will be ok. He may be a stone cold killer, but he is so broken emotionally that you can't help but love him. The love he clearly has for Seth, even though he wants to ignore it, is so evident and will have your heart break because he doesn't feel worthy of Seth's love.

Seth has survived so much trauma that it's not surprising that he doesn't want to leave the house and is afraid of everything. He is head over heels in love with Ronin and has been for years but he can't handle the heartache Ronin causes when he walks away.

Ronin is insistent on keeping Seth safe, no matter what. He vows to himself that once the threat is taken care of he will walk away, but will he have the strength? This is a beautiful tale of 2 broken souls who find solace in each other. It gets quite heated. Wowza! These 2 have significant chemistry that can't be ignored.

It's no secret that I have so much love for this series. Book one was in my top reads of last year list. This series was so full of love and family. It also shows that family isnt only those related by blood. It goes way deeper. Seeing these 3 men who were adopted and all lost each other throughout the years come together and show that there is such a strength that can come from love, is one of the most incredible things. In a world filled with so much hate and evil, Felicie has shown us what ready unconditional love truly is and makes you desire more of it in your life.

The narration for the audio version is powerful and shows depth of emotions covered in this beautifully told story. The voice was soothing and easy to listen to. I love when I hit narrator gold! He truly brought beauty to another Felice Stevens masterpiece.

This may be my favorite Felice Steven's book yet. It was so emotionally charged and sucked you in with no way out. I also listened to the audio version and it was perfect. The narrator was incredible. He really made you feel the emotions the characters went through.

Without giving away details, the main characters in this book both had extremely rough lives in the past. To watch them overcome together was heart melting. In other words, read or listen to this book!!
