I loved everything about this audiobook! from the narration to the storyline to the dialogue, this was a book I didn't want to end. There are really two sets of couples in story. All of the characters you will love. A mystery writer meets the woman of her dreams while searching for a crow bookend. Lots of things happen and then there are two happy couples and even a family of crows.

Her therapist believes she dates co-eds because she's attempting to recreate the great romance of her youth. The one that ended when her ex-girlfriend left her for someone else.

I'm not sure what to say about Forbidden Fruit. It's one of those books that has a crazy storyline that sounds nearly impossible to pull off, but somehow Hildred Billings does. A 24/25 year old basically stalks a 45 yr old cougar realtor and they have lots of sex and then the cougar realtor finds out who the younger woman really is. I dont want to give away too much, but the girl's identity is important and you'll figure it out immediately. The fun is in how the truth comes out. Of course they work things out in the end. I didn't love the characters. I'm not sure if I would have rooted for them more if the narrator had better voices... although as the book was near the end I liked them more. Overall, pretty good listen. if you are bored with routine romance novels, try Forbidden Fruit.

The only thing that frightens shapeshifter Selene Rhodes more than the full moon is the idea of falling in love. Selene Rhodes has lived her whole life with a terrible secret: not only can she take the form of any animal at will, but once a month the full moon transforms her into a fierce wolf-creature without a human conscience. Managing her condition means living by a strict routine, and more importantly, abstaining from intimate relationships with human beings.

This audiobook was amazing. Not a wasteful minute anywhere. I've loved every Meghan O'Brien book I've read so far, but kept waiting on Wild because I'm not overly in love with fantasy/shapeshifting and was afraid I'd be somewhat disappointed. I was obviously wrong. This book had me from the start. There's murder, some amazing sex, and some shapeshifting THAT I LOVED! Who knew? ha. I particularly loved when Eve first saw Selene change shape (far into the book, so it was welcomed when it happened) and how excited she was about it when Selene figured she'd think she was a freak. I love Alexandra Wilde/Abby Craden as narrator. I'd listen to her narrate anything. Great writing meets great narrating in Wild.

I love audiobooks. I love Gerri Hill's audiobooks. I, of course, loved this new Gerri Hill audiobook and it's just sweeter having the best narrator to tell us the story. Once there was an amazing book titled, "Hunter's Way". In this book, Hunter and Sam are back to investigate a murder mystery of a dead priest. you don't need to know anything about the first Hunter book to listen and instantly love this book. Even though I said how great this audiobook was, my favorite Gerri Hill books on audible are " the Secret Pond", "seventeen", and... "Hunter's Way" for anyone looking for a great suggestion.

Newspaper publisher and world traveler JJ Cavendish continually feels pressured to live up to her "Miracle Girl" nickname. Not many people know she’s living a carefully crafted lie. She may not hide ties to the LGBT community, but she does hide past struggles with addiction. When the Colorado native is handpicked to take the helm at a dying Denver newspaper, she ends up reconnecting with her long lost love in this contemporary lesbian romance. Only there’s a catch. If JJ fires the most belligerent editor at the paper, she risks losing the love of her life.

This is the 1st book I've read by this author and it was so much better than expected. Obviously the story line interested me or I wouldn't have purchased the book, but, WOW, I just finished the book and I have a silly grin on my face. I don't always enjoy the romance books where they met many years ago and fell in love but something happened and now they're older and could they fall in love again... but this one was different. Most of this story was in the present tense, but the needed parts from the past were there when needed. I thought it was so well written. I really am impressed. The narrator did an excellent job. I listen to lots of audio books since I am in my car a lot so trust me when I say you won't be disappointed with this book. Now I'm going to shop around for another book by TB Markinson :)

This audiobook might be on the short side, but every minute is wonderfully delicious! The book is so well written and the narration is perfect. I quickly loved both characters and enjoyed finding out more about them and wished there wass more time when it ended. It was very sexy and I can't say enough about the narrator :)

For Addison Fairchild, success is a guarantee. Groomed since childhood to run a division of Fairchild Enterprises, she takes her birthright seriously. Maybe a little too seriously, if you ask her friends. But work is so much easier than the rest of her life. For Katie Cooper, money has never been important. That is, until her father gets dementia and needs full-time care. As the bills start to pile up, Katie takes a second job as a temporary personal assistant. Two minutes and one spilled cup of coffee later, she's sure she's not ready for Addison Fairchild.

I love Georgia Beers' books! She writes witty dialogue between 2 likeable characters and always has some steamy sex scenes. This audiobook "Calendar Girl" is no exception. I even liked the uptight, business woman! I was rooting for them to get together, knowing they would within so many hours anyway ha Ok, even though I enjoyed this listen and love Georgia Beers, if you want an amazing audiobook by her, check out "A Little Bit of Spice". That's one of my all time favorite audiobooks:)

Madison Lansford and Shannon Fletcher met when they were 10 years old. Madison - daughter of wealthy parents and Shannon, daughter of their live-in maid and cook - became fast friends, yet both knew their place in life. There was never a doubt that they would become lovers... there was also never a doubt that Madison would marry and maintain her social standing in the community. Little by little, they grew apart, their love affair ending with Madison's marriage and pregnancy.

I had this audiobook in my wishlist for about a year. I kept putting off starting it because it seemed like it would be super emotional, knowing the main characters met young, something happened, then they were apart... sounds silly that I avoided a heavy romance when this was AWESOME! it wasn't overly sad. Great story. Good narration. Gerri Hill can do no wrong. seriously, every book I've read by her has been leagues above most romance writers. Thanks, Gerri.

This audiobook takes place over several Christmasses. Diz and Clarissa work together and playfully flirt with each other. Their banter is so fun hear! Narrator Christine Williams outdid herself. Ok The story takes place in and around Baltimore and I happen to live 30 min from Baltimore so... extra points to Ann McMan! The story was funny from the beginning and I loved how the characters spoke like real people, with bad words and all :) I really loved all the characters and there were plenty of them. Even the dog with its sleeping/eye mask cracked me up! This audiobook was so fun to listen to. I wish the characters were all real and living only 30 min from me (I'd like to meet Diz). This review is all over the place. sorry. ha! If you want a funny, lesbian romance, narrated by someone who truly sounds like an actress, and you enjoy an occasional crab cake, please listen to this audiobook!!!
