Maggie's mind is reeling when she discovers the guy she became tangled up with at Marv's Bait & Tackle isn't a stranger like she thought. The big snag: Sam and Maggie's chemistry is hot enough to melt ice, which makes keeping their secret far more difficult than either expected. Especially when one of them decides they want this arrangement to be more than just a catch and release.

I've been a fan of Amy Daws for some time now. I got hooked on her London Lovers series and fell in love with her Harris Brothers.

I had enjoyed following her antics on how her story Wait With Me came to be and her love affair with Tires, Tires, Tires. And as such, I was eager to give Next in Line a listen.

Erin Mallon and Teddy Hamilton are great together. Brilliant narrators in their own right, together they bring this story to life. And as for Amy's characters, I think that I enjoyed Next in Line more than Wait With Me - Sam and Maggie are awesome.

The fishing puns and jokes did get a bit old as they continued throughout the book - who knew that there were so many anyways.

If you looking for a lighthearted listen, give this a go. It's a great one.

I love firemen. Heroic. Selfless. Brave. I can't get enough. Imagine my surprise when local fire captain, Chase Matthews, wanders into my yard on moving day. I've hit real estate gold. Hot as sin with that all-knowing smirk creates an instant spark. But dating a firefighter isn't all it's cracked up to be. Chase keeps me at distance even when I attempt to break down his walls. A friendship with the nosy eccentric woman down the street reveals there's more to Chase than he's willing to share. I'm playing with fire and bound to get burned.

I really wanted to love this story. Given the length of this particular audiobook, you hope that it is spectacular given the amount of time invested in listening.

Unfortunately I found the story to be lacking. I think that Savannah Peachwood did the best that she could with the material that she had.

I believe that the story was too drawn out; too long. It was, unfortunately a bit predictable as well. And maybe it was because I was listening to the story, rather than reading it, but to start each and every chapter with either “I love...” or I hate...” grew tedious.

Fourteen years ago, my life changed forever. My sister disappeared. That day I was selfish. That day I chose myself over her. And that day, I lost everything. Including Nikki Walters. She's the girl I've loved my whole life. She's gorgeous. Caring. Every single thing I've ever wanted but denied myself. She was my sister's best friend, and I destroyed any chance of keeping her. When her safety is threatened, I have a second chance to do the right thing. But as soon as she moves in, I want her in all the wrong ways. All it takes is a brush of her hand, and I'm losing all control.

This is a great series of books. I absolutely loved each one and each narrator as well.

There are certain writers that I've decided I prefer to listen to their stories rather than reading and A.L. Jackson is one of those authors for me. Ever since her Bleeding Stars series, I just auto click on the latest audiobook release.

And Ollie's story is a fine wrap to this series. Looking Forward to her next release.

I’ve been listening to my father sing for my whole life. I carry him in my pocket on my MP3 player. It’s just that we’ve never met face to face. My mother would never tell me how I came to be, or why my rock star father and I have never met. I thought it was her only secret. I was wrong. When she dies, he finally appears. Suddenly I have a first-class ticket into my father’s exclusive world. A world I don’t want any part of - not at this cost. Only three things keep me going: my a cappella singing group, a swoony blue-eyed boy named Jake, and the burning questions in my soul.

I read this book before listening to the audiobook. I'm a big fan of Sarina and The Accidentals is another great example of one of her beautiful stories.

Given the chance to give this one a listen, I still, whole heartedly believe this is a great story. And Kate Rudd is a new narrator to me, and I think she did a fabulous job.

This is a coming of age story - about a teenage girl dealing with both the recent death of her mother and meeting her biological father for the first time. It's a unique story which was one of the reasons I loved it so much.

When romance novelist Kate Smith suddenly gets writer's block as she's beginning the final installment of her international best-selling erotic Bed 'n Breakfast series, she'll do pretty much anything to get her groove back. Like sneak into a Tire Depot waiting room because her words flow there just like complimentary coffee - smooth, sweet, and scorchingly hot. She manages to fly under the radar until the rugged and charming mechanic, Miles Hudson, notices the quirky redhead slinking in and out of the employees-only entrance. But she's way too intriguing to blow the whistle on.

Now I had the opportunity to read this story before giving it a listen. So I can confirm 100% that the audio enhances the overall experience.

Erin and Teddy give a great performance and strongly amplify the characters Mercedes/Kate and Miles.

Fast paced and quite funny. Found myself laughing out loud while listening.

The story was a bit predictable and it moved just a tad too quickly at times. It was like they skipped over things. As for the narration, I think that Mr. McAllister needs to work to better differentiate between characters.

When I read Grey, I had a tough time staying vested in the story. I personally love the Fifty Shades series, so I was surprised with the difficulty in retaining interest in Grey.

Now with Darker, I opted for the audiobook rather than reading and I'm so glad I did. The story from Christian's POV is so much better while being read by Zachary. His narration kept me intrigued the entire time. In fact, I'm sad to have finished the story and look forward to Freed from Christian's POV - as long as it's audio and preferably read by Zachary Webber.

I think that I'm a bit bias. I enjoyed S. R. Grey's story. My opinion on the narration is subjective. I had listened to Tracy narrate A. Zavarelli's Boston Underground series and I found her to be a perfect match for a Boston/Irish Mobster series. But Tracy's voice is too New England for me to be the perfect fit for this particular story.

This is the first book in the trilogy and I wished I'd known before starting. Because now I'm stuck and need to know what happens next!

Entertaining and mysterious. I wasn't able to guess with all the different twists and turns that this story took; and that's a good thing. And there is a lot more mystery still left to uncover.

Tracy Marks does a fabulous job narrating this story. She has the perfect voice for the New York/Boston characters present in this story.
