In this collection there are twenty-six stories total. Some are good and some just miss the mark. The really cool part of this collection is the story arc. You'll notice how most of the stories are connected to another within the collection. It's really cool trying to make the connections, especially after listening to half of the stories. This is definitely a collection of horror, macabre, and downright weird but enjoyable nonetheless. The narration was well done and only added to the experience. If you are a horror fan then this collection is something you really need to pick up.

I really cannot say enough about this series! It is an absolute joy to listen to. I have listened to all six books now and love them all! This is a really well written world with many different characters, adventures, dangers and mysteries! It'll suck you in and not let you go. This installment though does need for the listener to have listened or read one of the other stories in order to truly make sense, but they are worth getting! The narration was awesome up to the narrator reading Jessica's part. Suzanne Barbetta was the narrator for book five as well but she didn't keep the same voice for Jessica in both books. It made it a bit confusing at first and a little disappointing, hence the four stars instead of five. But outside of that, it is wonderfully done and I hope she'll narrate the next book (hint, hint)! This series is really great and I love that there isn't an excess in violence or sex. You won't be sorry to take chance on this series!

This book was so much fun and so enjoyable to listen to! I listened to it in one sitting and got totally caught up in it! Books 1-3 were awesome, book 4 was great and this one was back to awesome! If you haven't given this series a try then you are seriously missing out! If you enjoy LitRPG then you HAVE to give the Puatera Online series a chance. You will not be disappointed. This installment is well written and the narrator really brings it to life. I didn't care much for book four's narrator and was glad to see a new narrator for this one. Suzanne Barbetta does an awesome job with the various character voices and she is quite pleasant to listen to. A truly great combination! So what are you waiting for? Get this book and then get the others so you can enjoy the entire world (so far) of Puatera Online!!

I absolutely loved books 1-3 and where this one can be read/listened to as a standalone, you'll most likely want to read/listen to those as well. I enjoyed this story, book four of the series, but thought a few places could have used a bit more work. Don't get me wrong, this is most certainly worth the listen! The narration was a bit flat for me. I really, really liked the narrator for the first three books and felt that this narrator, Anneliese Rennie, just wasn't a good fit. Even though I didn't care for the new narrator, it also didn't keep me from listening to her read. If you are a fan of this series from books one to three then you will enjoy this one as well.

I really enjoyed listening to this book. Tina Zion wrote this very well and mad it easily understood. She properly described what was needed to comprehend and see what she was explaining/sharing. My husband is a natural healer in our house and I have always been in awe of what he can do. Now after listening to this book, I truly feel I have the tools and guidance necessary to become a healer as well. The narration was well done and only increased the enjoyment of learning. I will definitely be recommending this book to my friends!!

This book set is about selling on Etsy and Facebook exclusively. I had hoped there would be a some comparisons or other tidbit information not pertaining to just these two avenues but there is not. Most of the info given can be gotten by doing a minor web search but if you don't have the time or inclination to these searches for yourself then this book set will be right up your ally. The narration was just that, a narration. Sangita Chauhan simply read this set and nothing more. Also, her cadence took a bit to get use to, it really made it difficult to listen to the end. Make sure you listen to a sample before you purchase or request this book set.

Not every woman likes to submit. An increasing number of women like to be on top. And their partners love it! Filled with surprises and unexpected twists (yes, that kind, too!), this audiobook proves that when lust and desire take control, all bets are off.

This is an excellent collection dealing with the various forms of domination. The stories are quick and steamy. There's something for everyone in this set. Where I did not enjoy every story, I did like the majority and am happy to add this collection to my library. The narration was alright. I think both parties, Barclay Malmsbury and Tracie McCall, fell a bit short. I would have enjoyed a little more variance in the voices as well as more emotion in the "spoken" portions. Overall, a collection worth having and I am glad I have it.

Gabriel Carter is the biggest, cockiest asshole I've ever met. He's a six-foot-three ex-baseball player with sexy muscles and smoldering looks that turn my body into a traitorous mess. Did I mention he's also the reason business at my family's hotel is quickly going down the drain? I shouldn't want him, but try explaining that to my body. Especially after he proposes a business deal to me that will be mutually rewarding - both financially and sexually. Sleep with the enemy? Nah, I'll just marry the bastard instead.

This is a really enjoyable story to listen to. As you listen to the characters story unfold, you can't help but enjoy the ride. The story is well written with lovable and relatable characters. This is not a story you'll want to listen to without earbuds in or at a social setting. The narrator, Meghan Kelly, does an absolutely wonderful job with the characters. She is not afraid to do the sounds (throat clearing, choked up, etc) that the various characters make. She really brings the story to life and I love how she is able to give even the male voices their own. Overall, this was a very enjoyable listen that I think erotica listeners would truly enjoy!

Yet another wonderful addition to the Fireflies series! I loved hearing about Brenna and Dante's adventures to finding their HEA! I have loved this series and if you haven't checked it out by now then you are seriously missing out! I cannot recommend this series enough. It's totally wonderful and delightful to listen to with just enough steam to make your pulse speed up. Love it!! The narration is still spot on. Pam Dougherty has done an excellent job with all three books! She really brings the stories to life and keeps all the character voices the same through them all.

Oh WOW! This is one H-O-T collection by Jasmine Black! If you can't find a story you like (I liked them all) within this collection of seven then maybe erotica isn't for you! The sex starts fairly quickly and the stories are short! You will definitely need to be somewhere alone or with headphones/ear buds when you listen to any of these stories. Oh, and make sure you have a fan nearby! I absolutely love Jasmine Black and this set does not disappoint. The narration is done well and really adds to heat. This is an awesome collection that I'm glad I have and will enjoy the various stories many times in the future to come!
