I knew this book was going to give me heartache and yes I was 100% right. Angel and Mian have my heart and i don't think I ever want it back.

Mian kicked ass and I'm so proud of this woman. She just amazed me in the most unexpected and amazing ways.

I already love Angel too much but after this book, I AM OBSESSED. He is just so complex but so swoon worthy. I CRY! I CRY!

I loved the narration more in this book than the previous one. I just really happy I got to witness this brilliant story through such brilliant narrators. I'll definitely be looking forward to more of their works.

I'll never forget the night I caught her sneaking around my place. She thought she could steal from me and get away with it, but I have no intention of letting her get away at all. Mian Ross has a lesson to learn, and I'm going to be the one to teach it to her.

This was my first B.B. Reid story and I am utterly blown away. It's dark, sultry and so so delicious. Yes it ends on a cliffhanger and I absolutely cannot wait to read more.

I've always loved the trope of enemies to lovers and I know Angel and Mian have a very long way to go but I am utter in love with their story.

I was kind of expecting more from the narration at the start but then the story grabbed me enough that I loved the narration too. The narrators really did a great job with bringing the characters to life and I'm really looking forward to the next book.

Also, MORE ANGEL MORE ANGEL!!!!

In 1999, Brooke "BB" Bradley met her Prince Charming. He was the tall, tattooed, wickedly handsome bass player for the up-and-coming rock band Phantom Limb. Hansel "Hans" Oppenheimer wore his heart on one sleeve and scrawled lyrics about BB on the other. Unlike the assholes of her past, he showered her with tenderness, took her places she'd never been before, and showed her the type of all-consuming love she'd thought only existed in fairy tales. But, like any good fairy tale, BB's road to happily ever after was paved with challenges, and right when she least expected it, it forked.

BB's character is dealing with the aftermath of Harley being a jerk and Knight finally leaving for Iraq. Then Hans the rock God enters her life and causes all kinds of delicious trouble.

I loved this story when I read it and after listening to it my love has increased tenfold. I laughed and cried with this book. I was so so invested and it's didn't matter that I already knew the story. I just fell in love with everything all over again.

Ramona Masters is so incredible as BB, at some points I felt that it was actually BB narrating and had several 'whoa what is happening' moments. I felt as if I was listening to a live broadcast of BB's life and honestly I don't think I've ever been this invested in anything.

The story's ending was a bit bittersweet cause BB learnt a hard lesson but man oh man Ken has game and he is coming for BB. I JUST FEEL IT! Waiting on pins and needles for the next installment in this series.

I'll say this about Christian - he made one hell of a first impression. When I first saw the strapping man, he was doing handstands naked on a dock along the canal. His crown jewels were far more entertaining than anything else I'd seen on the boat tour, so I did what any curious woman would do - I took his photo.

I've picked up a Lauren Blakely book after a REALLY long time and I'm so bloody happy that it was this book. Christian and Elise's story was like a modern fairy tale. I love these two together. The story was hilarious, sexy, heart-warming and just so damn hot. I cannot get enough of these two and a re-listen is happening in the near future for sure.

This book had so many moments where I couldn't stop grinning like a fool. I'd be sitting in the metro just listening and grinning like a fool because Christian was so goddamn charming. And aaaghh Elise,GAWD I LOVE HER! Lauren Blakely writes THE BEST women ever.

This was my first time listening to both Grace Grant and Shane East and I've become a fan for life. These two embodied Christian and Elise so perfectly and just I didn't want the book to end. If the book was 72 hours long, I'd still want more.

Absolutely beautiful story. Equally brilliant narration!

When romance novelist Kate Smith suddenly gets writer's block as she's beginning the final installment of her international best-selling erotic Bed 'n Breakfast series, she'll do pretty much anything to get her groove back. Like sneak into a Tire Depot waiting room because her words flow there just like complimentary coffee - smooth, sweet, and scorchingly hot. She manages to fly under the radar until the rugged and charming mechanic, Miles Hudson, notices the quirky redhead slinking in and out of the employees-only entrance. But she's way too intriguing to blow the whistle on.

This story is absolutely funny, down right swoony and just so amazing. I adored it when I read it but Erin Mallon and Teddy Hamilton made my heart happy with their portrayal of Kate and Miles. I thoroughly enjoyed it and kept wishing it wouldn't end. They were perfect as the protagonists and captured all their quirks like I'd imagined.

Standing ovation for Erin doing Miles' parts. That was some hot stuff.

The anticipated conclusion of the Checkmate Duet from a secret duo of best-selling authors! Checkmate: This Is Love is an enemies-to-lovers romance that will have you crying with laughter one moment and screaming in frustration the next...but you'll be begging to play the game with The King.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would totally recommend it to a friend because 1) The story is mind blowing and 2) it's made even more amazing by the absolute perfect narration. You can feel all the emotions and angst while listening to it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Checkmate: This Is Love?

When Travis and Viola get back together after their "break-up". I was hurting for them when they were apart and just was so over joyed when they found their way back to each other,

Which character – as performed by Lia Langola – was your favorite?

Travis, no doubt, was my favourite. I love the different layers to his character.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, definitely!

Travis King is the worst kind of a**hole. He taunts me for being a good girl and mocks my high standards. He's cruel, crass, and has enough confidence to last two lifetimes. And I hate him. He's always loved getting under my skin, and one night against my better judgment, I let him in my bed. I've succumbed to his manw**re ways, but that doesn't change a thing. Because the King is about to get played at his own game - and lose.

What did you love best about Checkmate: This Is War?

I was already in love with the story when I read the book but listening to the audio increased that love tenfold. The emotions conveyed are so real and palpable.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Viola's character because she is fierce and just a little Harry Potter nerd like I am.

Which character – as performed by Lia Langola – was your favorite?

Definitely Travis! His cockiness made me swoon.
