Madison Moore is a single mother of two young boys. She's not interested in dating or partaking in meaningless sex. Her only goal in life is to be a good mother and make life as normal as possible for her oldest son who is diagnosed with a learning disability. When Ryder Storm literally comes crashing into her home and turns her life upside down, she finds herself falling hard. Madison's denial about her feelings and dismissal of his advancements only fuels Ryder's determination to make her his.

I loved this story. It is such a beautiful and sweet romance. I'm a sucker for a book that has cute kids in it. Aiden and his brother were adorable. Ryder was a good, hard working man that showed Madison how a women should be treated. The ex-husband Mitch was an a-hole. Narrators were awesome as always.

My dreams haunt me. I feel as if I am falling into a pit of impending doom, but even that has not prepared me for the roller-coaster of emotions that flood over me when I'm near Phoenix. I have to keep my distance from her. I need to. It's the only thing I can do to keep from getting hurt again. Staying away from her proves to be a much harder task than I could have ever imagined. She's not only my assistant, but she's half my age.

This was a great romance. The characters are likable. I loved Nico and his angry, brooding self. Phoenix was feisty and went toe to toe with Nico. I loved Gio, he is someone to have in your corner. Looking forward to a book about him. I did take a half of point away because I thought it was too much throat clearing from all the characters and it became a little annoying. Kai and Wen did an excellent job with narration as always. Wen has one of the sexiest male voice out there, it's so yummy. Kai made Phoenix so lovable and adorable.

One word. Stay. It was all he had to do. Instead, he got on that bus and took my heart with him. That was 17 years ago. I moved on. Marriage. Kids. White picket fence. Everything I ever wanted, but my husband betrayed me and I was left once again.

This was a good second chance romance. Presley's husband was into some things that came back to bite her in the butt, forcing her to move back to her hometown. As always Arndt and York did a fantastic job with narration.

I'm a lone wolf, and I like it that way. Banished from my birth pack after a bloodbath, I never wanted a mate. Then I meet Kylie. My temptation. We're trapped in an elevator together, and her panic almost makes her pass out in my arms. She's strong, but broken. And she's hiding something. My wolf wants to claim her. But she's human, and her delicate flesh won't survive a wolf's mark. I'm too dangerous. I should stay away.

There's that phrase, though. "How's that working out for you?" The answer, when it came to Hope Sinclair, was, "not so well". She might be little, she might be sweet, and she might be young, but if I'd thought she'd be compliant anywhere but in bed, I'd learned my lesson. To keep her, I had to let her go. To hold her, I had to turn her loose. To have her in my life, I had to accept that she was 9,000 miles away in New Zealand.

When I'd taken Hope Sinclair and her sister to New Zealand to meet my grandfather, I'd known I'd be making the return journey as her husband. I hadn't reckoned, though, on the demons of my past coming back to threaten our future. And, as always, I hadn't reckoned on Hope. I had hundreds of millions of dollars and thousands of employees to tell me I had better judgment and more self-discipline than most people, and neither my self-control nor anything else I possessed had been won the easy way.

The second book was better than the first. Hope and Hemi are great characters. I love a strong female character and Hope is definitely that. I love that she has a back bone and is willing to go toe to toe with the dominating, bossy, alpha male that is Hemi. Narrator did an awesome job. Can't wait to listen to the 3rd book.

I never asked Hemi Te Mana to rescue me. It was true that I had a lousy job. Not to mention a lousy apartment and too much responsibility, although it was a responsibility I wouldn't have given up for the world. That still didn't mean I needed rescuing, if that was what you'd call the situation I ended up in. And anyway, I knew that a multimillionaire Maori CEO with too many muscles, a tribal tattoo, and a take-no-prisoners attitude was way, way out of my league.

This was an awesome listen. Hemi and Hope were hot together. I love the fact that Hope wasn't a push over. Loved the sisterly bond between Hope and Karen and how Hope took care of her sister. There is sadness surrounding Hope's sister which made me teared up. Claire Bocking did an amazing job as narrator.

The Kingdom of Askara has been torn apart by conflict for centuries, where humans exist as subservient beings to their werewolf masters. Legend says it will only be able to heal itself when an Alpha King and a pure omega are mated and crowned together, but a pure omega hasn't been born in over a thousand years. Luca is an Alpha-heir eagerly awaiting the choosing ceremony on his 25th birthday and the gifts granted by whichever omega he mates.

This is my first book by the author and it won't be my last. Luca and Kit were great together. After the misunderstanding between Luca and Kit, I loved how tender and loving Luca was towards Kit. Also liked that Luca wanted to be a King of justice. I liked how the different wolves had different specialties. Would love to hear more about Sam and Asher.

Phoebe Graham is a specialist in deep cover espionage, infiltrating the enemy, observing their practices, and when necessary, eliminating the threat. When Phoebe receives the order to eliminate Jesse, she must choose between the job she's dedicated her life to and the man who's stolen her heart. Choosing Jesse would mean abandoning everything she believes in, and it might mean sharing his fate because a shadowy killer is dedicated to finishing the job started in Iraq.

I freaking loved this book so much. I think this is the best book in the whole series, but then I say that about everyone of them. I just love Jessie so much. I can't believe that Phoebe fooled everyone but I knew something was up with her. Gosh, I just love Ian and the whole gang of McKay/Taggart. Start with book 1, you won't be disappointed. This book have some funny moments. Ryan West does a fabulous job with narration.
