After Logan Bradshaw's dreams go up in smoke, he's left broken and haunted by a cruel betrayal from his former business partner, a man he once thought of as a friend. His life as a professional escort helped pay for his future once, so maybe a few more jobs can give him back what he's lost. Dominic Barretti has everything money can buy, but it can't save his beautiful young wife as cancer steals her away from him. He also can't deny her one last request - a ménage encounter with another man.

I loved the storyline and the narration. Sloane is one of my favorite authors. However I was disappointed with this book only because it felt like it was edited to dead! To me it seems as though it had chunks cut out of the story to shorten the length and it lost the smooth transition between characters, time periods and places.

After giving up on his career as a country singer in Nashville, Christopher Ryder is happy enough performing at the Smoky Mountain Dreams theme park in Tennessee. But while his beloved Gran loves him the way he is, Christopher feels painfully invisible to everyone else. Even when he's center stage he aches for someone to see the real him. Bisexual Jesse Birch has no room in his life for dating. Raising two kids and fighting with family after a tragic accident took his children's mother, he doesn't want more than an occasional hook-up

Overall I really enjoyed this book but as someone that lives near Gatlinburg I'm impressed with the accuracy of the places mentioned. However... the mispronouncation of Sevierville made me CRAZY, it is pronounced the same as severe just with a Ville on the end. The second is the ending, if it was written with intentions of another book it's all good, if not I would like to have better closer. All an all the book made me laugh, cry and feel just about every other emotion there is. Hopefully there is a second book on the way.

Luca McGrath may be returning to Napa Valley, California, as a promising chef with dreams of starting his own restaurant and winery, but his heart still lives with the bad-boy son of a billionaire, James Armstrong. Luca spent his childhood playing games with the golden boy of California society, so blinded by James he barely noticed the dark, quiet lure of his conservative older brother, Dylan Armstrong.

I have to say Tara Lain knocked this one out of the park! Love, love, love her unique twist to my all time favorite fairytale romance Sabrina, and a great choice in narrators. Greg Tremblay did a amazing job bringing all of the characters to life. This book is definitely top of my list of books I will listen to again and again. Looking forward to your next book!

Josh and his husband, Ian, have done their best to help Michael leave his horrific past behind, but even Josh is stunned when Ian suggests that Josh help Michael with his fear of physical intimacy. After all, it isn't like it would be the first time - Josh and Michael were once each other's firsts.

A hesitant first kiss, and Josh and Michael's natural attraction eases the way. But with Michael still balking at the prospect of sex with someone new, Ian steps into the breach.

Another great story by L A Witt however the narrator just didn't work for me, not enough differences between voices made it a challenge to figure out who speaking at times

Kismet Andreas lives in fear of the shadows. For the young tattoo artist, the shadows hold more than darkness. He is certain of his insanity because the dark holds creatures and crawling things only he can see - monsters who hunt out the weak to eat their minds and souls, leaving behind only empty husks and despair. And if there's one thing Kismet fears more than being hunted - it's the madness left in its wake.

but this one just doesn't measure up to previous books, too drawn out, not enough in the relationship department and which couple is supposed to be the main couple anyways? There just wasn't any sparks! I had a hard time finishing this one.

I'd probably chafe under his constant presence if his attention to my body wasn't so...ah...thorough. Now I have to worry about outing myself to millions of fans if I can't keep my hands off him in public.
