A Christmas Creek Carol is a revised version of the classic christmas story A Christmas Carol. A sweet novella that takes place in the small town of Christmas Creek. We get a glimpse of what's in a author's mind which is intriguing. With a Christmas Creek twist to keep you enthralled. I love the original classic and I lobmve this modish version too. The cover screams Christmas! I love it!
A perfect fireside listen with hot Chocolate with whipped cream and marshmallows.

Reed Windsor doesn't do relationships. Though he could charm the pants off any girl he wants, he's not interested. He's always been too captivated by a special someone from his past to get serious with anyone else. Sure, she has no clue he exists, but he's willing to bide his time and convince her he's worth a shot.

The Girl Behind The Red Door is a whimsical, and witty listen with a enchanting prologue. A serendipity romantic comedy that reveals Charlie & Reed have a much older, deeper connection that began when they were children when Reed's family spent their summers across the road from the girl behind the red door. For Reed Windsor, Charlie is "The girl of his dreams". Reed's character comes with a bit of mystery. With unexpected twists brewed with supporting character's that play a intricate role as well as they mesh together. Chemistry between these characters is visible. The Supernatural references in this real life fairytale romance were joyous. A sweet piquant tale involving waffles and whipped cream.

Narrator Steve Campbell's british accent is deep, clear-cut and smooth. I love British accents and it was a fruition to listen to.
Sarah Puckett narrates this beautiful tale in a way that brings the character's and narative to reality. Together, these narrators complement each other & the tone and pace flows through smoothly.

I've got dating horror stories that would curl your toes and singe your nose hairs, but none of them compare to the toad who started it all: Ellis Walker. He was the boy next door, the charming, infuriatingly gorgeous one who broke my heart and disappeared without a trace. Now, he's back and determined to throw my life into chaos, dredging up painful memories just when things were getting good. But the thing is there are always two sides to every story.

whole lotta FROGS by Samantha Harris is absolutely cleverly designed & written with a perfect cover & title.
Ellis Walker and Lennox Brooks adorable romance is blended with crazy banter and humour that keeps you giggling through the entire listen. Lennox Brooks dating woes is told in a arrangement chapter then blog post about that chapter like a diary tell all. Drama filled angst like the old saying says you have to to date a whole lot of frogs to find/realize who your prince charming is. Supporting character's accentuate & bring so much more character to the story. I adored the smart & sassy, yet stubborn characteristics of Lennox and the sweet & swoon worthy ones of Ellis. Overall, a light, fun & hilarious listen. I definitely plan on listening to this one again.
Narrator Heather Firth's performance was flawless. The tone and pace flows through smoothly. Her performance brings it into a real life experience.

Enter Hayes Whitley. Mega-movie star. The man who has captured the hearts of millions. But I gave him mine years ago. He was my first love. He was my everything. Right until he up and left to chase his dreams without so much as a simple goodbye. When he showed up out of the blue 10 years later, I should have known to steer clear. I should have rejected his offer to take me to my ex's wedding and told him he was crazy when he suggested we act like a couple to show my ex, it's true, I could do better than him.

Sweet Cheeks is a second chance romance with childhood friends turn lovers. A standalone, dual POV which is my favourite, and a sweet HEA with a sexy alpha male hero & a sweet & sassy bubbly heroine. This novel spans between many years and goes back between the past and present smoothly. A sweet & fun entertaining listen.

Narrators Andi Arndt and Sebastian York are a perfect dual and nailed it. These two together bring a star studded performance to a modern day fairytale.

Keane Morgan wouldn't return any of my calls or texts, and I was pissed as hell about it. I didn't want to drive from Seattle to L.A. with the guy any more than he wanted to drive with me, but I had no frickin' choice in the matter - at least, not if I wanted to use his brother Dax's coveted parking spot at UCLA. Okay, so it turned out Keane was objectively gorgeous, and, fine, pretty funny, too. But did he have to be so damned in love with himself? I mean, jeez, the cocky way he flashed those dimples was just so orchestrated.

Oh My Golly Gosh! Ball Peen Hammer by Lauren Rowe is a frolicsome romantic comedy chock-fulled with saccharine. Keane Morgan and Madelyn Milliken are super adorable together and you will find yourself falling in love with them together. I love the witty banter & flirtatious between Maddie and Keane in this sweet-tempered slapstick. Supporting character's enumerate to the narrative with their uproarious antics. Heaps of elements convey a narative that resembles personage. I just wish their was an epilogue.
Narrators John Lane and Lauren Rowe conveyed a stellar performance. Each characteris given a distinct voice Tone & pace are smooth and just right. These narrators took an already excellent story to the next level, breathing life into characters and transporting listeners to other stomping grounds . A re-listen is in the cards with this one.

After my brother’s death, I was drowning. Delilah was my life raft. We were opposites, the outspoken art student and the brooding athlete. She was passionate where I was apathetic, bright where I was dark, soft where I was hard. For two years, we had everything. The kind of love that only exists in fairy tales. Then she left and took my heart with her. I tried to heal. To throw myself into medical school. To forget her. I thought I did. Until today. Those blue eyes, that sweet smile, the soft curves--that's my Delilah. As soon as I hear her laugh, I know. She's what’s missing from my life. I have three days to get her back. God, I hope I'm as charming as I used to be.

Broken is a second chance romance that doesn't follow the usual cookie cutter romance. This novel digs deep into a topic not openly talked about. Trent and Delilah's romance is something real and believable as it reflects real life. The writing style captures the essence of the narrative. I love that each chapter begins with a title & section along with who's POV. I like the set up and how it plays out with going back and forth between the past and the present. This creates a well crafted narative that flows through smoothly and at the right pace & tone. Characters are brainy, marred, and opposites that hold each other together. Supporting character's play a crucial role as their actions reflect how these two deal with their own demons. Deliah holds a the secret of why she left that keeps you captivated and craving the answer to her secret as its unguessable. Little hints are are played our but you won't figure it out. Deliah & Trent will leave you temptuious. I absolutely loved the epilogue as it crop up in a away that polishes off a perfect HEA. I hope more books are created about the supporting character's.

The narration told in dual pov with the best narators. Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross narrates a beautiful story showcasing a flawlessly performance. These two together are a perfect pair as everything from the tone, pace, smoothness, to the angst & chemistry is nailed in a way that delivers a story that resembles real life.

He never planned on walking into a diner his first day as a rookie cop and for her to blow his entire time line to smithereens. When Marie Griffen’s older brother, Steve, introduced her to his new trainee, she was instantly drawn to his shy demeanor and blushing face. Only she couldn’t act on her feelings even if she wanted to. Steve wanted her to date someone with a normal job - that wasn’t his partner.

Loving Marie: A Fairfield Corners Prequel is a swift listen that is an introduction to the picturesque Fairfield Corners. This novella sets the tone for this series and takes place in Indianapolis. James Marsden a rookie police officer &
Marie Griffen a waitress and sister of James new rookie cop trainer will navigate through their affections in this off-limits romance. With a first kiss, misinterpretations, and sweet moments a brisk glimpse of what's to come. We are introduced to supporting character's who I think have their own books or at least in the other books. These supporting character's bring a arresting tone to the romance.

Told by third person pov the narrator tone and pace flows through smoothly and the voice interpretation of a cop was determinate.

I belonged to you the moment you told my mama you were waiting for me when I was still inside her stomach. I belonged to you as we grew up sharing a tree house, a yard, and the lake. I even belonged to you when our three-year age difference tried to pull us apart rather than put us together. But I was most especially yours when you kissed me and told me you weren't letting me go.

my life as a Country album (my life as a country album book one) will tug at the heart. A poignant and exquisite coming of age novel of achy love and loss and learning to live through life in all its pain and glory. Tears will fall & tissues highly needed every time you listen to this lyric allegory as you will relisten as to keep Cam & Jake in your heart always. Cam & Jake's love ballad is brimming with angst, agony, family, friendships, and love. I love that each Chapter begins with a song title that represents that chapter. The writing style is apple pie. A narative that is unparagoned & worthy of a writing reward as this novel goes above and beyond. No novel has ever came close to what I felt and still feel after listening to this beautiful ya love story.

Sarah Puckett is my absolute favourite female narrator. Her southern accent is smooth & sweet, with a perfect pace and tone. Her male voice is impeccable. The melody was flawless and the whole performance was perfect. This narrator brings all the angst and take to heart to life.

A audiobook that I highly recommend listening to as it's more than just a listen.

I hope this authors other books are turned into audiobooks and narated by Sarah Puckett.

She's not a quiet librarian. My landlord is infuriating. He's uptight and rigid, right down to those dress shirts that do nothing to hide the muscle underneath. Sure, I never read the tenant's agreement. I have now. In fact, I've memorized it and I'm going to use it to my advantage while staying within the bounds of my contract. Is it my fault that those little decorative touches drive Charlie nuts? And who can resist purchasing a few vulgar gnomes to enhance the landscape?

The Fine Line Between Love and Hate is a frolicsome, opposites attract/enemies to lovers romance. This is a fashionable, innovative novel that is charming and so much fun to listen to. It will have you laughing out loud and felling giddy. I absolutely adored Evie and her peppy personality. I loved Charles and his uptight attitude. These two opposites attract and bring out the best in each other. I loved the comical banter between Evie and Charles. Supporting character's were campy and brought extra frenzy. I loved how each chapter had a title and told who was talking. With a perfect epilogue to wrap up this witty narrative.
Narrator Heather Firth did excellent voice changes for each character. The narration showcases a smooth, light tone, with a perfect pace. I absolutely loved listening to this audiobook and plan on doing a relisten. Looking forward to listening to more audiobooks from this narrator and author. I highly recommend listening to this audiobook as it brings happiness.
