I love Lauren Blakely’s story and Birthday Suit was no exception. I’m totally in love with Leo and was rooting for him to win the girl. And all the talk of chocolate made me want to go binge eat some chocolate too. Then I remember I’m not really a chocolate person. LOL!

Overall, this was a fun story to listen to and the full cast of exceptional narrators made it that much more enjoyable. And they each performed their characters so well that at times it felt like I was actually in the story hanging with all these characters. Bravo!
All audiobooks should be made this way.

Fallon Swift, approaching her thirteenth birthday, barely knows the world that existed before - the city where her parents lived, now in ruins and reclaimed by nature since the Doom sickened and killed billions. Traveling anywhere is a danger, as vicious gangs of Raiders and fanatics called Purity Warriors search for their next victim. Those like Fallon, in possession of gifts, are hunted - and the time is coming when her true nature, her identity as The One, can no longer be hidden. In a mysterious shelter in the forest, her training is about to begin under the guidance of Mallick, whose skills have been honed over centuries.

That's how long he has to rediscover the man he once was. The dominant master he hid when he fell in love with her five years before.

You can never go wrong with CD Reiss’s book.
This is the first of a duet. It’s good. Think Fifty Shades but with a more mature and already married couple.

The narration is done duet style. Sebastian York and Elena Wolfe did an awesome job in bringing the characters to life. They truly capture the emotional angst of the main characters.

It all started with a mysterious blue note sewn into a wedding dress. Something blue. I’d gone to sell my own unworn bridal gown at a vintage clothing store. That’s when I found another bride’s “something old.” Stitched into the lining of a fabulously feathered design was the loveliest message I’d ever read: Thank you for making all of my dreams come true. The name embossed on the blue stationery: Reed Eastwood, obviously the most romantic man who ever lived. I also discovered he’s the most gorgeous. If only my true-love fantasies had stopped there.

You can never go wrong with a book by Vi Keeland and Penelope Ward. And this one was no exception. The ending was a little bit of a #Tearjerker but in a good way that will have you smiling and crying at the same time.

As always, Sebastian York’s narration is wonderful and makes the story that much more enjoyable. I’m not familiar with Lynn Barrington as this is my first listen of her narration but I think she did a good job in bringing Charlotte’s quirkiness to life. And her male voice is also not so bad.

He's reliable and kind and handsome. Sure, he's been avoiding me since I was six. I'm a bit aggressive for him, maybe. But he's the one...right?

I really enjoyed listening to this book. Christian’s POV is definitely more interesting than Anna’s IMHO and Zachary Webber’s performance was stellar. He was able to convey Christian’s torment, lust, and love so well that I fell even more in love with this character (if that’s even possible). Definitely worth a credit.

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.

This is the turbulent love story of Jake, a pilot, and Gillian, an author moonlighting as a flight attendant. I loved Jake from the start. His "I don't give a f***!" attitude was hilarious and then he meets Gillian. And that first meeting was hot, even though they were discussing airplanes. Go figure! From there it was super fun to follow them through all their "destination" hook-ups and oh boy were those scenes scorching hot.

The way I see it Whitney G. just have a way in her writing that pulls you into the story until the last page and then makes you want more.

It's always a pleasure to listen to Erin Mallon perform a good book. She definitely can convey all the feels from the written pages. And her male voice is good. Needless to say, she is one of my favorite narrator.

Joe Arden performed his part well too.

Hi, I'm Chloe Scott. The most awkward single girl in the city. But I'm going to get it together. I am. I'm going to learn how to date like a grown up. I'm going to have an orgasm not given to myself. I'm going to fall in love and live happily ever after. Right after I get out of this interrogation room.

Another hilarious romance from Jana Aston. Chloe has anxiety over everything so dating is not easy for her. Enter our hero, Boyd, who not only understands her social anxiety but does his best to help her through it. He basically cons her into dating him without her knowing it. If that's not love then what is?

As usual, Erin Mallon's performance was spot on. She did great in conveying Chloe's struggle with her anxiety issues. Her male voice is also good.

Lance Greenfield's performance of Boyd's scene was good but I didn't care much for his female voice. Fortunately, there was not too many scenes where he had to do a female voice.

Another good Elder race book and a great start of the Moonshadow series. The setting this time is in the UK so we get to meet a bunch of new characters from one of the demesne there. Can't wait for the next book.

As usual Sophie Eastlake did a great job narrating. Each of her characters have a distinct voice and I like her male voices. Don't know how she does it but she makes Nikolas, our hero in this book, sound so sexy.
