Jake Weston and I met under a cloud of cliches: Boy meets girl. Boy charms girl. Boy screws girl. He was the sexiest, cockiest man I'd ever encountered, but I had no idea he was a senior pilot when we met. No idea we worked for the same airline, and he had secrets just like me.

The narration for Turbulence was outstanding. This story absolutely captivated me and held me on the edge of my seat. The HEA at the end though came soooo late and was not nearly enough for me to feel completely fulfilled though! Thank goodness the author wrote an epilogue and has it available on Amazon for free!

Now, with the time ripe for battle, his men are ready and Ewan is poised to take back what is his-until a blue-eyed, raven-haired temptress is thrust upon him. Mairin may be the salvation of Ewan's clan, but for a man who dreams only of revenge, matters of the heart are strange territory to conquer.

In Bed With a Highlander would've been an awesome read if I had just read the paperback. But Kirsten Potter's narration took it from awesome to extraordinary.

Mairin was a fantastic heroine - able to stand on her own two feet, but willing to ask for help if she needed it. Ewan was every bit the alpha Highlander and although high handed and egotistical at times, when he fell in love, it was all over for him. Totally swoon-worthy.

I can't wait to see what happens next in this series.

Eveline Armstrong is fiercely loved and protected by her powerful clan, but outsiders consider her "touched." Beautiful, fey, with a level, intent gaze, she doesn't speak. No one, not even her family, knows that she cannot hear. Content with her life of seclusion, Eveline has taught herself to read lips and allows the outside world to view her as daft. But when an arranged marriage into a rival clan makes Graeme Montgomery her husband, Eveline accepts her duty -unprepared for the delights to come.

I've never read another Maya Banks book that I loved more than this one. The story was incredibly entertaining. Every one of the characters was lovable and endearing. The men were so alpha and awesome. And Evaline was the kind of heroine you fall in love with.

Kirsten Potter is INCREDIBLE. Her Scottish accents were spot on. I'm seriously blown away with how brilliant she was. I have listened to her read a few of JD Tyler's Alpha Pack books, and loved her then too. But in this book, she really shined. I cannot wait to listen to the next book in this series!

I'm the guy you love to hate. In every story in my life, I seem to end up playing the villain - and I've got the scars to prove it. That role works fine for me, because I'm sure as hell not anyone's hero. I run my life and my empire with an iron fist - until she knocks my tightly controlled world off its axis. She's nobody's damsel in distress, but I can't help but want to save her anyway. I guess we're about to find out if there's a hero buried...beneath these scars.

Of all the men we've met so far - Simon, Con, Lord and now Lucas - I never would've guessed that Lucas would end up being my favorite. In past books he was a total and unapologetic prick. And I LOVED watching him fall in love with Yve.

Sebastian York and Andy Arndt make a fantastic pair and they're so good in this series.

Brent Mason and Hayden Winstead can't stand each other. She plans exclusive parties for her rich family's charities; he's a rough-and-tumble cop who rigs explosives for a living. Could two people be any less suited for conversation? They think not and prefer to keep it that way. Unfortunately, their two best friends are deeply, disgustingly in love.

Asking For Trouble is another awesome addition to the Line of Duty series. The passion in the love/hate relationship between Brent and Hayden was fantastic.

Alice Chapman isn't my favorite narrator, but she did a pretty good job voicing all the parts.

I met her on the worst night of her life. She was broken, shaking, and waiting for someone to save her. I am just thankful I got the opportunity to know her. Her dad helped me with some legal trouble I got into, and I volunteered to help out at their camp for children with special needs. Horses, pools, and a tracking bracelet on my ankle. Sounds like a fun week, doesn't it?

I was raised on the streets, so I know things are rarely as simple as they appear - especially this rich girl showing up at my pawnshop demanding a job. She's the most tempting thing I've ever seen, and I'll be damned if I can make her leave. S--t just got complicated...but when it comes to her, I want complicated. We're both fighting our own demons, and our only chance at a future is to let go of the past. But will we be strong enough to break free from beneath these chains?

With a famous NHL player for a stepbrother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation of many a hockey star. So of course she isn't interested in legendary team captain Alex Waters or his pretty, beat-up face and rock-hard six-pack abs. But when Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet's misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes much more than just a hot body with the face to match.

PUCKED was a brilliant book. It was so much fun to listen to. Helena Hunting's brand of humor is wonderfully inappropriate and it made listening to this book not at all a chore. While I would definitely classify this as a "funny" book, it was also incredibly sexy and even sad at times. My emotions ran the gamut, which makes PUCKED a fantastic book.

Muffy Newtown was an absolutely perfect Violet. This is the first time ever listening to her, and after this experience, you can bet I'll be seeking her out some more.

Nathan Everett, though, was a bad choice to voice Alex's POV. It was a bit off-putting to hear the part of an athletic Canadian hockey player narrated by a high-pitched Scotsman. I'm sure that Nathan Everett is a good narrator with the right part - this was NOT it. Muffy Newtown's portrayal of Alex was much better.

Despite the poor casting choice for Alex, I fully intend to continue with this series.

But he does like sex - the hotter and harder, the better. He likes it fast and filthy, which is why he refuses to even touch someone as sweet and guileless as Samantha Jamieson - until he discovers that she likes it just as down and dirty as he does.

I love this series so much. I've read them all, but this is the first one I've listened to. Overall, it was pretty good. The story was awesome - I loved uber-broody Ryan in love. And there was tons of pack time and pack dynamics and a bunch of action.

I wasn't crazy about the narrator, however. She was a bit over dramatic a lot of time and her voices for Trey, Tao and Ryan were very low and slow. She made them sound unintelligent at times, and that bugged me.

So, another home run story from Suzanne Wright, but I think I'll stick to reading them in the future.
