Twenty-two-year-old Ivy Morgan isn't your average college student. She, and others like her, know that humans aren't the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun... and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. Four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she'd sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart. Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He's six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm.

First off, I listened to listen with the Audible Romance Package, and the narrator did an excellent job! She does the voices for all the characters. I'd recommend listening to Wicked if you have the chance.

Loved the premise for this one! Ivy is part of The Order in New Orleans. The Order hunts down the Fae that have come over into the human world. Ivy stumbles across some big bads of the Fae world, and realizes some major craziness is about to go down. Ivy meets the new guy, Ren, and the two are paired up to work together. These 2 have some awesome chemistry, and I loved the romance aspect. Ivy is in her early 20's, has a "pet" brownie (Fae type creature), and acts before she thinks. I liked Ivy, but the girl basically makes all the wrong choices, so be prepared to be frustrated with her. She trusts all the wrong people, and she's very bad at reading people's true intentions. Despite all of that, I get she's young and needs more world experience, so she gets a little leeway with me. The Order sucks. I don't know who is running that place, but they are doing a bad job. They treat their members horribly, and they need to work on their training. I did love the action scenes, and I loved the whole evil Fae aspect. There are some sexual scenes, so I'd say this leans towards the NA genre. I'm off to listen to the next book, Torn, and I'm super excited! So far, this series hits all the things I love to read!

I love Lisa Kessler's writing! I enjoyed Wolf Moon, and I'm enjoying looking at that cover! I enjoyed the listening experiencing. I preferred the female narrator the best, but both did a great job. I'd recommend listening to the whole series since it's on the Audible Romance Package.

This is part of a series, but it could be read as a standalone, but there are some cameos from characters from the previous books, so you may want to check out those books first, but I don't think it is absolutely necessary. In Wolf Moon, Raven was bitten against her will and turned into a werewolf, and is in a wolf pack that is into some nefarious things and the Alpha makes women mate against their will, so Raven decides to escape and ask another wolf pack for help, but along the way she runs into Luke, who is part of the very pack she was on her way to see. After hearing all the terrible things that are going on in Raven's wolf pack, Luke agrees to help Raven out, and all the others who are trapped by the controlling Alpha. Luke and Raven come up with a plan to bring Raven's Alpha down, and along the way the two begin to grow closer, but it's difficult for their relationship to grow within the situation they find themselves in. Raven's Alpha is having humans bitten against his/her will and turned into werewolves, so he can create a bigger pack to take out other wolf packs, and is forcing women to mate with multiple males, so they will get pregnant, and on top of that, if someone in the pack doesn't do what he says, he kills them. Raven is in a really bad situation, but I love that she stands up for herself, and does what she can to help all those trapped under the Alpha's iron fist. I thought it was really cool that Luke is a horse trainer, I almost want to say I found Luke to be a bit tame, but that makes him sound bad, and he wasn't, he is a strong guy, who puts himself on the line for others, which I found admirable; he's a really good guy, and he's a romantic, which is adorable. Luke and Raven have some really tough things to get through, and they both show extreme strength in some really intense situations. I liked the romance between Luke and Raven, and they do have some hot and sweet moments, but I do feel like I would've liked a bit more depth to their romance; it's good, but I felt like I wanted more intense emotion between the two. They are sexually passionate, but I wanted them to be emotionally passionate as well, but even with those little gripes, I still found the romance sweet and lovely. Good, solid entertaining read! Looking forward to the next!

First off, I listened to this story with the Audible Romance Package, and the narration was great! Both narrator did an excellent job, and I'd definitely recommend listening if you have the chance. This series is unique and really draws the reader in. The story for Releasing the Watcher is interesting and I love the depth of passion the characters feel for each other. I think you should definitely start with the first book in the series before reading this one because there's a story that continues from the beginning, and previous characters are present in this book. This one features the story of Sariel and Selah. Sariel is a fallen angel that fell because he found his soulmate, Selah. This story features the story of how Sariel and Selah first met, and then it also features the story in the present. Sariel and Selah have had a tough road; especially Sariel, since he's had to wait with the knowledge of his love of Selah for years and years and years. The depth of love that Sariel has for Selah is amazing, and how much is has sacrificed to find a way to be with Selah, just touches the heart. There's so many forces against them. They have some dangerous people going against them. It all makes for a page turning story. The one thing I didn't care for much was Selah. She's fine, but I expected more for Sariel. He fell for this woman, so she had a lot to live up to, and for me, she fell shortly. The whole burlesque angle didn't work for me. I wanted her to aspire to be more than a principle in a burlesque show. Maybe since I was listening, I may have missed her having more aspirations, but it didn't seem like it. She also didn't really do much to better the situation, she's pretty much a damsel that causes problems. This series is sort of gritty, and the author tends to have things work out, but not work out fully. Overall, the story draws you in and is unique. I'll continue to read books by Kim Loraine. She has an interesting way to tell a story.

I listened to Fly on Audible with the Romance Package, and I enjoyed the listening experience. The narrator wasn't my favorite, but he did a good job. I just felt that his voice didn't quite fit the character, but I still enjoyed listening. The story was entertaining, and kept me interested the whole time. I just don't think the whole friends to lovers thing is something I enjoy reading. Maybe if it didn't take so long for them to realize that they wanted more. Or really it took them too long to admit it. I liked both Colton and Taylor, but they were both just a bit too immature. Colton is a pro motocross rider, and that type of thing has chicks throwing themselves at him and he partakes in many. Thank goodness Mclain doesn't go into the details too much. Taylor is his best friend since childhood. Nothing has ever happened between them, and both think they are fine with that, but they begin to realize they aren't. They do have chemistry, but I don't like how Taylor catered to Colton. She's like his little wifey; without the benefits, at home taking care of everything, while he's out traveling and banging whichever chick he wants. You begin to realize that them being best friends is sort of surface level. Taylor makes some really stupid decisions because she's hurt by Colton's actions, and I hate to read about a woman debasing herself because of a guy. They do have some sweet moments though, and I do want to see them happy. This is a duet, so Taylor and Colton's story doesn't finish in this book, there's another book to finish up there story. I already own Fight, so I'm going to read that now because I am curious how these 2 will end up. I have high hopes!

So, I finished and reviewed this book awhile ago, but I recently listened to the audio, so I had a new look at how I feel about this story. I was surprised to find out that my feelings towards the story have changed. While I was listening, I began to realize that when I had originally read Saving Brad, I had done a lot of skimming. Skimming over the parts I wanted to get past because the content was something I don't enjoy reading. I didn't realize that I had done that so much when I read this book, so I felt I needed to refresh my review. Unfortunately, doing that has made me knock a star off. The book is still entertaining, and I still enjoy Siobhan Davis' writing, but I just didn't like the premise. The series is great, and there's probably plenty of people that don't have the same qualms that I do, so I'd still recommend the story. Maybe I'm just feeling more judgmental than when I previously reviewed this book. I'll leave my original review because I still agree with it, but I'd like to mention some of the things that didn't sit well with me too.

First the positive, the narrators of the audio did an excellent job. Especially the female narrator! She fits the character well. I believe she did the voice of Faye in the first 3 books of this series, and she did great then as well. I'd definitely recommend the audio if you choose to read this story.

So, as I was listening, I realized the whole beginning of Saving Brad was just gross. I actually didn't enjoy the story until at least chapter 11 or so. I don't like when authors add too much detail into the main character's lives before they gain a clue. Also, I was extremely disappointed in how Brad treats Rachel, and she continues to put up with it and fall at his feet. It takes way too long for them to realize or admit that they care for each other. I didn't like reading about Rachel debasing herself so much. While listening, I realized I was cringing at their sex scenes, and I realized because I felt like I just wanted Rachel to get help for how little she thinks of herself. I know she's attracted to Brad, and she says she enjoys the sex, but how can she, when he's a complete jerk to her. So, this was just causing me strife this time. The scenes were written fine, and I suppose they could be read as hot, but something in me just couldn't enjoy them. Brad is forgiven way too quickly as well. Maybe I'm just not compassionate enough. I think I just found the characters too immature, which they are young, so I suppose that fits. Immature characters making immature decisions. I forget these are college kids. Brad isn't in a frat, but I feel like he's that type. Also, what the heck was up with mentioning one of Brad's ex bed partners feeling up on Ky and him not pushing her away quickly. It had no place in the story; unless I missed it.

For the most part, what I said in my original review stands, but this time around, I realized I didn't really find a liking for the main characters. If you like the previous books in this series, I say definitely give this one a go though. As I said earlier, the story is interesting and I may just being extra sensitive towards things. Maybe what I enjoy reading has changed some. Sorry for the long rant! I don't want to deter anyone from trying out Siobhan Davis' books because Davis has written some of my absolute favorite books, so definitely check it out for yourself.


Original Review -

Love Siobhan Davis' writing! She knows how to write stories that draw you in, and keep you interested till the very end. Saving Brad is part of the Kennedy Boys series, and I'd recommend reading the previous books, but it isn't absolutely necessary. Brad has been on my bad side for quite awhile in this series because of his manwhore ways, and his lack of maturity, but I still had hope for him going into this book. He did grow on me, but I still don't like his excuses for his behavior. He needed to do a lot of growing up in this book, and it was good to see him realize that his attitude and actions aren't doing him any favors. I wasn't a huge fan of Rachel's either from the previous books, but this book did help me understand her more. Brad and her are cute together; they don't have the Faye and Kyler connection, but they have their moments. These 2 had a long way to go with me, and it's really hard not to root for them with how Siobhan Davis writes their story, so in the end, I liked them both. Rachel is dealing with some heavy stuff in this book, and it's great to see her realize her worth and stick up for herself. I liked the suspense element in the story, and of course, it's super great to see more of Ky and Faye! I'm not too sure about the premise for the next book in this series, but Siobhan Davis is one of my favorite writers, so I'll definitely check it out!

I loved the forbidden aspect of this story! Annaliese is the new librarian, and Ryder is the principal of a high school. These 2 know they shouldn't get together, but they can't resist the pull between them. They have great chemistry, and they are cute together. They have some hot moments too, which includes a bit of kink. I do feel like they added the kink to their relationship because they think the other one wants it, but really neither really does, so it was a little odd. It's more like they are playing at being kinky. I do wish they would've had more normal conversations though. The majority of their conversations were sex related, so it made their characters seem rather flat. There's also a little bit of suspense added because Liese has a stalker ex-boyfriend. I love stalker stories! I loved the protectiveness of Ryder! I read some reviews that said this book is boring, but I didn't find it so. I found it entertaining, and I love the premise. There's not a whole lot of drama, and the story mainly focuses on the development of Liese and Ryder's relationship, and trying to keep their relationship under wraps, so it's a character driven story. I do think Liese was a bit too dense, too absent-minded, and too tongue-tied at times. She has a tough time handling things, and she can get whiny, so that can get annoying. I usually have a tough time with Hunting's female characters because she tends to make them annoying, wishy-washy and sort of a mess. I still liked her more than Hunting's Pucked series females though. All the other characters were great! Loved Ryder! Overall, the story is entertaining and I liked how the story comes together.

I listened to The Librarian Principle with the Audible Romance Package, and the narrator did a great job! I'd recommend listening to the story if you get the chance.

Interesting story! Loved the serial killer angle, and it's not completely obvious who it is, but I did have who it was on my suspects list. The suspense was fun! There's also a cool sort of psychic angle that was great, and I liked how the story unfolds. I did like the romance, but I didn't really see what drew Adrienne to Connor in the beginning. I wish there was a little more to the romance angle of the story. Connor is an FBI agent, who is tasked with bringing in Adrienne to help find a serial killer. Adrienne can feel evil in people and items, and Connor is unbelieving, so he's a bit of a butt to her. The story has a good build up, and I liked all of the characters. The characters are a little stiff, but still likable. The writing could've flowed a little better, but all in all, I really enjoyed the story. I listened to Primal Instinct on the Romance Audible Package, and I liked the listening experience.

This is one of my favorites from this series!! Plus, the narration was excellent! The male and female narrators were both terrific, and I loved the listening experience! The male narrator was perfect for Logan; he had a deep, gruff voice that fit a wolf shifter. Each book can be read as a standalone, but I'd recommend starting from the beginning since the previous characters are in this book and there is a continuing issue with a group of bad jaguar shifters. I love the action scenes, and seeing more of the wolf pack. I love shifter romances! Logan is a wolf shifter, and I love how much the shifter angle comes into play in this series and in Blue Moon. Blue Moon is a very entertaining story, and really draws the reader in. I love the backstory between Vivi and Logan. They've known each other since they were kids and fell in love, but Logan broke Vivi's heart without telling her why. It's about 5 years later, the two run into each other again, and this time Logan can't resist the pull between Vivi and Him. The romance is sweet and very heartfelt, and I just loved how much they connect. I liked that Vivi holds Logan accountable for breaking her heart. I get where Logan was coming from; especially after how Vivi acts after some events, but I'm glad to read that he knows he could've handled the whole situation better. I could feel the love between the two while reading. Wonderful book with wonderful characters! Terrific listening experience! I'll definitely check out more by Lisa Kessler!

There's a lot going on that isn't quite as it seems, and I really enjoyed reading the mystery unfold.

The female narrator does a great job and she fits Lana's character wonderfully. The male narrator did okay, but I definitely preferred the female narrator. I also listened to the last book in this series, Keeping Kyler, and the female narrator on that book was better too. I think the males are a little too robotic, they need to flow more and add some swagger to their narration. I still really enjoyed the listening experience though!

Siobhan Davis is one of my favorite authors, and I always love her writing! The way she writes her characters emotions really resonates with me, and I can feel the depth of those emotions as I read her books. Lana isn't my favorite, but after reading Loving Kalvin, I understand her a bit better, and although, I can never condone her actions, I can imagine the pain she must've felt in order to do something so egregious, so I think this story is important to understand some of her thought processes. After reading Loving Kalvin, I'm still not completely sold on Lana, but I really enjoyed Kalvin and her story. I loved that they have a backstory with each other, and I think Siobhan Davis did a great job of showing what the consequences are for Lana's actions. The writing is a 5 star for me, and the only reason I went with a 4 star is more of a storyline that I don't enjoy being involved in Kalvin and Lana's story, so it's a personal preference thing rather than a quality of the story thing. I can always count on Siobhan Davis' books to be entertaining and to keep me enthralled in her characters stories. Loving Kalvin is a great book, and I read it in one sitting. Both Kalvin and Lana have needed to grow up rather fast, so I often forgot that they are so young, so I would find it odd when their ages were mentioned; Kalvin doesn't act at all like a 17 year old, but that just goes to show the maturity these characters exhibit, which I like because sometimes with NA or even some Adult books, some older characters act like they are little children with their actions, so I really appreciate that these characters generally use their intelligence to make decisions. Lana has a lot of guilt over her false accusations against Kalvin, and keeps pushing Kalvin away, when he will do anything to have Lana back. The love Kalvin displays to Lana is so sweet, and the connection these two have with each other is wonderful. I also loved that we get a little bit of Faye and Kyler! I'm excited to see more in the next books, and I know I'm going to want to slam Brad's head against a wall multiple times while reading his story, so I hope he catches a clue quickly! Siobhan Davis' story telling is off the charts terrific, and I will always want to read any book by Siobhan Davis. Definitely check her out!
