Alexa O'Brien is a rarity among supernaturals. A hunter of supernatural rogues, she's a werewolf with unusual but extraordinary power. Power that fiercely draws her to Arys, the intriguing sexy-as-sin vampire who awakens her dark side. What they create together is dangerous and binding, a unique but massive force that threatens her humanity and tests the love she possesses for someone else.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I really enjoyed reading about Alexa in this book. Watching her grow more powerful and yet be so lost was captivating. It also helps that this book was narrated by Sara Puckett. She always brings books to life and she did not disappoint with this one. Now off to read more about Alexa in the next of the series.

Another great love story I this series. Although it is the second in the series it can be read as a stand-alone. That being said, you really don’t want to miss out on the first either. Watching these two struggle with their own self worth as well as sad history was heartbreaking. I am very pleased to see their happy ever after and the second epilogue was fantastic!

What's a girl to do when the guy she falls for is married to another man? This is exactly what happened to me. Seeing Josh Kendal stroll out of the Mediterranean Sea wearing tight navy swim trunks and looking like a hot new James Bond was a truly delicious moment. Catching sight of his wedding ring was like a kick in the shin and meeting his gorgeous husband, phew, that was enough to make any girl groan at the cruel joke God was playing on her. But all was not as it seemed, and when Josh needed a woman to sort out a 'delicate predicament' I was the one for the job.

I didn't expect to see her again. I didn't expect to want her the way that I do. I didn't expect to peel back all of her perfectly controlled layers. Or for her to see through mine. Emma f--king Winchester. She's the little sister of my ex-best friend, Forrest. She's off limits like tempting forbidden fruit, and I'm the snake slithering through the grass. She ignites a fire in me. One I can't explain. One I sure as f--k can't control. It's raw and primal. She's sweet, and I am not. She's pure, and I'm broken.

They sell you on the drinks with little umbrellas, dolphin watching, and long walks on the beach. Which probably happens, if you’re that lucky schmuck living out your dream with your destination wedding, but if you’re a fish out of water PI like me, there’s no time for relaxing because trouble is never far behind. Instead of cocktails, I ended up dealing with the seedy underbelly of The Big Island. And I didn’t see one damn dolphin while undercover on a boat, which was spilling over with drug dealers, kingpins, and pedophiles.

Such a quick and fun read! I love the obsession with cupcakes, I mean who doesn’t connect with that! I love the connection everyone in this family has, and I have to say Mama is a hoot! You have a little bit of drama and suspense but not too much to overwhelm someone who isn’t into that. Definitely worth listening!

Just like Asher Black, this book brings you to the brink of emotions. The narration with this brings you even closer into the mafia so you can feel absolutely everything. You have a good girl gone bad and a fixer who look like there is no way it would work out, but as you look further into both of them you can see their vulnerabilities are the same. An amazing book. Can’t wait for the next!

Whispers of the Locke brothers fill the town, facts and reality twisted to fit what these motherf--kers believe they know about us. That we’re sadistic bastards, incapable of any real emotions or fear. Maybe they’re not wrong about that. That is, until I set my sights on Kadence King, getting just as drawn to her as I am the darkness. It’s the first time I’ve felt anything in a long time. But would she really be scared knowing the depth, the lengths I go with my brothers to make any f--ker who crosses us pay?
