Just call me Mister O. Because your pleasure is my superpower. Making a woman feel "oh god that's good" is the name of the game, and if a man can't get the job done, he should get the hell out of the bedroom. I'm talking toe-curling, mind-blowing, sheet-grabbing ecstasy. Like I provide every time. I suppose that makes me a superhero of pleasure, and my mission is to always deliver.

Sebastian York could read my anatomy and physiology text and I would enjoy listening to it. But this was also a good story. Nick Hammer is a sweet geeky hero who also knows he is hot and good in bed. He had a crush on Harper, who is his best friend’s sister. Harper is an awesome magician who happen to be awkward in dating due to spending all her time at kids parties. So she suggests that Nick tutor her in Dating. Nick falls hard and fast, but he is afraid to lose Harper’s friendship, so he just goes along. They are really great together though and get their happily ever after.

I received a copy of this audible book in exchange for my honest review. However, once I started listening, I realized I had already read this entire series on my kindle. So you know I really loved this book to have continued spending money on the rest of the books. Lachlan is a wonderful and caring laird and Kinley is a strong modern soldier who is his match. The chemistry is explosive but they also get each other.

I kept listening for the wonderful narration even though I already knew the story. The narrator has a voice like silk and made the story even better. You will not regret getting this book.

I received a copy of this book set in exchange for my honest review.
I loved the books and have already downloaded the fourth book on kindle.
Book 1. Trey and Della. Trey is one of a coven of 6 vampires who were the Demon Beal’s (I only listened, so names may be misspelled) failures in his quest to make undead minions of evil. Each of them has had a loved one sacrifice themselves which prevented them from becoming evil. Trey is from the Middle Ages and his love gave up her life for him. Present time NOLA, Della has never felt like she belonged. Horrible things start happening to her and Trey saves her. He recognizes her as his long lost reincarnated love. They battle Beal and grow close. Della seems like she may break, but she really comes through.
Book 2. Aris and Trin. Aris meets Trin while saving her from a bank hostage situation in Greece. Trin finds him again and goes to thank him. He tells her who he is and she gets ticked off that he is crazy. Beal is after her, but he was also grooming an evil sadist from Europe to starts WWIII. Aris goes off half cocked and ends up being rescued and saved by his friends and Trin.
Book 3. Oksana and Mason. This one I had some trouble with. Oksana meets Mason and her personality changes into a fragile angsty wall flower. She has PTSD from how she was turned, how her love died and what happened to her after. But she literally does not give Mason anything to go on. It’s a good thing they already had a bond because Oksana could not stand to be in Mason’s vicinity. It was all him and he did all the heavy lifting In their relationship. She made a lot of assumptions and went with them despite evidence that he wanted her.
The story lines are interesting and gripping. The settings are different in each. The narrator really made the stories come to life. She conveyed a lot of emotion while reading. I enjoyed the books a great deal. Now I am off to read Xander’s story.

When Elizabeth Raleigh signed up to be a surrogate mother she was really in it for the $100k paycheck and nothing more. She knew her client was a “self-made billionaire from Chicago” but nothing much more. And quite frankly, she didn't want to know. However, a twist of fate revealed his true identity and she could not believe it. Her client was her childhood sweetheart Luke Johns. At first it seemed as if this deal was a match made in heaven and the type of unbelievable story you only read about in romance novels.

This story was good in a canned surrogate meets billionaire, they fall in love, kind of way. The story itself was nice and Luke only had one moment of when he wasn’t all in. Lizzie was his high school sweetheart and they simply broke up because they went to different schools, distance is hard for kids to deal with. He looked for love, but the last woman he dated was crazy, so he gave up and hired a surrogate. That surrogate happened to be Lizzie, who he never forgot.
Once they meet, he explains that he needs her to donate an egg too and she seems fine with it. Then, they decide to just have tons of sex to conceive because that’s the most natural way and they both have the hots for each other.
Luke’s crazy ex pops up with a wild story trying to get Liz to back out and Liz works with Luke to put her and all her helpers away. They live happily ever after.
My only complaint was that there were too many details about what meal they each ordered and wha drink went with it. There were too many set-pep talks for silly stuff like buying groceries, putting them away and going out. Seemed unnecessary, but made the story longer, I guess. Overall, I liked the story.

The narrator was really a narrator, very little acting on her part, just reading. Good reading, but a bit of emotion and acting would have been helpful.

I have read bad boy becomes good second chance stories before, so I was worried about it being same old same old. But it wasn’t. Johnny and Kennedy were made for each other. Kennedy and Jonathan met in high school and she believed in him from the moment she saw him. She supported him in everything and ran with him when he left. She was going to write and he was going to act. But somewhere along the way drugs and alcohol took her Jonathan and he became Johnny, the manufactured actor. She was pregnant when she went home and despite having gotten into Vassar, 10 years after high school, she works in a supermarket and supports her little girl. She refuses to accept Johnny’s support money and sends him on his way every time he shows up randomly while drunk or high. The last time she sent him away was after her mother’s funeral.
That woke him up and he cleaned himself up. Now he comes back while clean and she is willing to talk. Then, before he knows it, he accidentally meets his daughter and she is perfect. He wants to be there for her and for Kennedy. Kennedy carries around a lot of pain and abandonment anger. But she checks herself every time she says something that is not like her. She fixes it each time. She forgives him a lot of things, but she is worried about him hurting his little girl. Breaking her heart like he broke Kennedy’s.
I love how all the back story is shown throughout. How they are shown growing up, facing the real world. Madison is such an amazing kid.

I think the narration was superb and added a lot to my enjoyment. The feelings in the voices were so tangible that they sucked me right in. Overall, I loved this story.

This was a story that had all the feels and strong characters. I loved that the heroine never doubted her own worth or what Daniel did or did not feel for her. She knew what the right thing was and did it. She may have doubted her decisions, but she stuck by them.
THe story had intrigue and historical politics.

The twist at the end made my jaw drop a bit, but it fit with the story.

The narration was phenomenal and made the story sing to me. Overall, a lovely and sweet story that I enjoyed tremendously.

I received a copy of this book for my honest review.

Kellee spent her whole life being protected by the men in her life. She chafed under the restrictions and went to a different company. I do not understand why her father thought it would be dangerous to work for him but had no issues with arranging her a job with another company.

Kellee comes back to her apartment and gets ready to evacuate ahead of a hurricane and is confronted with a Russian kidnapper. She then gets swept away in the hurricane and loses her memory.

Her father then asks Egan to go find her and keep her safe. Egan has feelings for Kellee, but he was an asshole to her the last time he saw her. Despite that, he is able to gain her trust and keep her somewhat safer. His own gruffness with her tends to get in his way. But she slowly remembers everything and develops deeper feelings for him.

As they are chased by the Russian mafia, they work together. It is a thrilling story.

The narrator was difficult to listen to although I eventually got used to it. His voice for Kellee was like that of a man mocking a woman. His voice for Egan was fine, but a few decibels louder than normal, so it was jarring. I did get used to it.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Rebecca comes to Jackson for a friend’s wedding and to help an escaped slave find her way to her family. There, she is introduced to Jared and sparks fly right away. Through a series of misunderstandings, Rebecca keeps leaving Jared confused and suspicious. She made a huge deal about keeping him out of the escaped slave smuggling business and refused his proposal rather than just being a grown up and just saying “yes, but not quite yet!” It seems like a bit of it was over-manufactured. The story itself was good and Jared was as loyal and sweet as could be.

The narrator was what I would call a “reader” and not an “actress”. Oh she tried here and there to add some emotion here and there. But for the most part, she was reading the way she would recite it. I think it took away a bit from the overall enjoyment of the story.

You know how people say you can never believe what you read on the interwebs? That a hot guy online is probably a creeper with a beer gut and a shoe fetish, not the sexy beast he pretends to be? So I had no clue that the anonymous blogger who contacted my law firm about his naughty website would be droolworthy in real life. Not that I'm interested in him in that way. Attorneys can't go around sleeping with their clients. Not even if he is the most beautiful man I've ever met and so ridiculously smart he makes my nerdy-girl heart sigh.
