Scar Walker, professional football player and ex Navy Seal, only wanted to focus on getting his gym built for military vets while he was in San Diego. He didn’t want to take crap from his brother, he didn’t want to deal with a lippy waitress, and he really didn’t want random people calling him on the phone. Shayla Castle came to San Diego to finally live out her childhood dream. When she accidentally calls the mysterious phone number left on her table while waitressing, she never anticipated it would be the handsome jerkface soldier who chewed her out that morning. It confuses her even more when the same jerkface shows up the next night and saves her from an attacker.

If you are looking for a clean romance then you have found it! This book shows someone falling in love without the sex is possible and so sweet. The “code” word they use is absolutely adorable in this book, sorry can’t say any more without that spoiling part of the book. This was a nice, easy book to listen to and I will definitely be looking into more of them.

When a Royal finds a commoner to fall in love with is kind of like a Cinderella story, but this one is so much better! One of the key problems between Siobhan and Angus is communication. If they knew how to do that better in the beginning then I think a lot of their problems wouldn’t have even occurred (but who doesn’t like the clashing in a book). It is obvious that they both love each other even though neither wants to admit it. The problems from family that goes throughout the entire book is very saddening to see people behave in such a way. This book even has a bit of suspense in it towards the end that I loved. All in all this is a book you don’t want to miss out on.

I listened to this book because of a romance challenge. That being said I really enjoyed it and can see myself listening to the next in this series as well. It was cute listening to Alice trying to teach different meanings to words from earth that were not translated well. I hope there is a bit more of that in the next book.

The faint scent of lilac in the air, the far-off tinkle of a music box, doors that won't stay shut - Melissa Benjamin likes to think the strange happenings at The Valencia add character to the apartments. And when a tall, reserved and seriously sexy new tenant moves into 1-B, there's even more to like.

I read this book as part of a romance challenge. For this books to be so short I felt it had a lot to it. You have the haunted apartments, and the two tenants who live there. It wasn’t an insta love book either. They work to it semi slow and have a few bumps in the road they had to make it through. The ending was very fun to listen to as well.

Gah! Another ending that leaves you needing to know what happens! I love this series so far and really hope the next book comes out soon. Watching Winter grieve and then find her way out of the darkness is painful and so glad when she started finding her way out. Her strength in the love she has for her guardians is phenomenal and what keeps making her become even stronger. I can’t wait to see what else she is able to accomplish in the future.

I found a new apartment near my new school. Yay me. I also found myself unexpectedly naked with Dare, the smoking-hot single-dad mechanic who works next door. Dare did more than clean my spark plugs that night, let me tell you. Then my worlds collide when Dare shows up at his son’s parent-teacher conference. Next thing I know, surprise! Pregnant. Dare knows I’m worried about my job at the Catholic school and about how I’m going to handle the baby that might be his. Please, God, let it be his. I just never expected Dare to propose marriage.

Another great addition to this series! Who doesn’t love a loving father who always puts his child first, but is able to find that perfect person for himself too. I really enjoyed lost to this book and seeing where it was going to go. As always, this narration team made the book even better! Can’t wait to see what comes next.

Never mix business and pleasure. That's what a smart business owner would do. Apparently, I'm not that bright. Desperate to get my failing web design firm off the ground, I sent a proposal to Gabriel, a rising rock star in the indie scene. He flat out told me that my design sucked. Luckily, he's willing to give me a second chance. But he's requiring me to do some unconventional things to get a better grasp of what he and his band are about. Go to a rock festival. Spend more time with him. I'll do anything to land this job. Everyone knows that rock stars don't do relationships....

A quick happy love story. I love how these two met and especially loved how he set things right after putting his foot in his mouth. Great book with a HEA.

What a great addition to the first in this series. We continue to follow Win through her new life as the heiress and the struggles in missing her adoptive parents. The twists in this book are heartbreaking and I hope to see some kind of resolution in the next book.

My life was always at a simmer… only stewing, never going anywhere. I was left to fend for myself when it came to affection or love, so I learned to go without. I refused to let them see how broken and lonely I was; it was much easier to hide behind a false reality. I didn't want anyone's pity. I didn't need it. Pity wouldn't put food on the table or keep a roof over our heads. That was all me. Now, I have a second chance at a dream long forgotten. It demands hard work and sacrifice - with absolutely no distractions. A recipe I already know all too well, raising a daughter on my own.

I LOVED this story! Sara doesn’t feel like she is lovable because of her parent’s neglect and disinterest when she was young. Lucky for her when she went to college Drew was able to prove that she is. This story was so heartfelt with many real life struggles that were not over the top and so realistic it was perfect. I can’t wait to see what else this author has to offer and as always, the narration for this book by these two narrators were spot on.

I listened to this because of a romance challenge and have to say I was pleasantly surprised. Even though I haven’t listened to any of the previous books in this series I was able to follow it very well. That being said, I think I would have understood a bit more of I had. This will probably be a series I read more of I. The future.
