It's not every day that a beautiful, naked woman falls out of the sky and lands face-first on grizzly shifter Berg Dunn's hotel balcony. Definitely, they don't usually hop up and demand his best gun. Berg gives the lady a grizzly-sized t-shirt and his cell phone, too, just on style points. And then she's gone, taking his XXXL heart with her. By the time he figures out she's a honey-badger shifter, it's too late. Honey badgers are survivors. Brutal, vicious, ill-tempered survivors.

Love the story but the narrator should have listened to one of the previous books before taking on the voices of all the characters. Reading the book with the wrong tone and accent of the known characters was a very irritating distraction from the story.

Rick, Dee Ann, Malone, Crush >>>>BOLD Novak and Poor Blaine and Hannah sounds just awful... OMG such awful and wrong accents.

I could not tell who was speaking Charlie, Max or Stevie. the voices were getting mixed up.

Berg had no personality in his voice. He is very FLAT!

I am waiting for the next instalment of this series and if Traci does do the next narration I hope she does more background then she did for this book.

I'm a private investigator and not by choice. I dreamed of becoming a police officer my entire life, made the dream reality, and had it taken away by a shoulder injury. Now, I'm snapping pictures of cheating husbands and wives, tracking down people who don't want to be found, and basically working one worthless case after another while trying to make ends meet. Enter Catch Xavier Moon, a dangerous criminal. He's hot and sexy and his world is crime, drugs, and women.

I love this series! Reading the books takes your feelings to a tight level of intense visual of the story and the characters. BUT listening to Lynn Barrington interpretation of the feelings and actions of the story is absolutely amazing. I have already pre-ordered the next two books in the series

The problem with being born with expectations is the failure to live up to any. Christopher might be the antichrist, but taking over the world and leading the minions of darkness sounds like a lot of work. And while slacking is a sin his supposed dad Lucifer approves of, his lack of goals is a problem. Personally, Christopher would rather just work hard enough to make ends meet - and maybe buy a six-pack. But fate is conspiring against him.

Christopher has been raised in a cult that worshiped him as the next ruler of Hades. Christopher is arrogant, self serving, witty just like Lucifer. When his alarms go off in the cemetery he finds Isobel and the dead start rising. And from there is just gets more hysterical. Eve Langlais has another fantastic series starting and IMHO you must Listen/Read the adventures of Christopher (The Real Antichrist)

Tyler Donne did such a good job of bringing the story to life with the way he interpreted the emotions of each character.

A killer with a white picket fence. Suburbia, a great place for a man with secrets to hide - while investing in some solid real estate. The biggest drawback? Neighbors. In this case, a neighbor with sexy curves and a bright smile. Good thing she's not his type. Single moms with annoying exes are on the do-not-date list. Stay away. Calvin wants to; it's just not happening. He can't help but find himself drawn to the chaos next door. And when danger threatens his suburban lifestyle, this assassin doesn't hesitate to act.

Would you consider the audio edition of Assassin Next Door to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version yet. But the audible version is fantastic.

What did you like best about this story?

The story had me from the very start. When his hit dies before he can kill him. I did laugh out loud at work. Calvin was honest with Lily about his job but she would never believe him. Then she tries to protect him because she thinks he will get hurt for being a good Samaritan. When Calvin figures out that Zoe (Lily's daughter) has him charmed too...well he figures out that he wants them as a family..LOVE IT!!!

What about Rebecca Mitchell’s performance did you like?

Rebecca did a great job performance with each of the character's in this book.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed out loud many times during the audio. I was very surprised when it was revealed what Lily's Ex-husband did has a job.

Any additional comments?

I really do LOVE the the first book in the Bad Boy Inc. series by Eve Langlais. I can't wait for the next book in this series. I have already pre-ordered Pint-Sized Protector Book 2. YAY

Twelve hours later the seductive firebrand is nothing but a whiskey-laced memory - but one powerful enough to convince Jesse tracking down his elusive lover is worth the effort.

This is the story we have been waiting for. Six Pack Ranch with all the Coleman's has been a great endearing read/listen. I have cried and laughed with each story. From Blake and Jaxie, Daniel and Beth, Matt and Hope, Gabe and Allison, Joel and Vicki, Travis and Cassidy and Ashley, Steve and Melody, Lee and Rachel, Trevor and Becky, Rafe and Laurel and the last Jesse and Dare. This story brings it all to a tearful, laughing end.
Since the audio came out first I will wait to update after others have had a chance to read this story.
Jesse's bring full circle.

I'm a monster. That's what Brandon thinks when he flees the medical institute that changed him. Living a normal life isn't in the cards for him because, while he can hide his scaly skin, his wings are hard to miss. So he runs and lives in the shadows where monsters belong. What he didn't expect to find were others just like him, and they call themselves dragons. Or so Aimi with the violet eyes tells him when she pins him to the ground. Seriously, though, dragons? He doesn't want to believe, but the evidence is mounting.

I am so glad that Brandon got his story.

After everything that Uncle Theo did to him he deserved to find his HEA.

When Aimi finds him and wants to add him to her hoard..

Many LOL moments.

Listening to the audio at work and people stopping you and ask. "What is so funny".
This is another great story by Eve.

Burning alive is nothing compared to the heat of his touch. There are better ways to break up with a girl than having her roasted at the stake as a witch. Is it any wonder Ysabel has trust issues? She got her revenge, though, and it cost her only a slightly tarnished soul. Working for Lucifer isn't all bad until her ex-boyfriend escapes the bowels of hell, and she's forced to team up with a womanizing demon to fetch the jerk back.

What made the experience of listening to A Demon and His Witch the most enjoyable?

Loving the fun side of Lucifer. Ysabel who was burned as a witch and Remy a demon from hell who works for Lucifer must find some souls that have escaped and must be returned or poor Ysabel will burn again every night with it extending 1 minute each night until they are all returned to hell. This was such and interesting way to feature Lucifer as a hilarious evil match maker.

What other book might you compare A Demon and His Witch to and why?

This is a book all on it own Can not wait to listen to the rest of this series.

What about Mindy Kennedy’s performance did you like?

Mindy did an awesome job of the voices and tone for this book.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh out loud A LOT! listened at work and everyone kept trying to interrupt me to see what I was listening too,

Any additional comments?

Eve's books are so entertaining and such fun to either read or listen too, She has such a vivid imagination.

Taryn Warner is a wolf shifter with extraordinary healing skills - and serious problems. First, her father is determined that she mate for life with a wolf shifter named Roscoe Weston, whom the feisty Taryn can’t stand. To make matters worse, she’s also been kidnapped by Trey Coleman, a dangerous alpha male from another pack. And as much as she wants to resist Trey, Taryn is incredibly, maddeningly attracted to him.

What did you love best about Feral Sins?

Taryn Warner is the daughter of the pack Alpha, she is also the pack healer. The only issue with Taryn is that she can't shift. She has the Alpha power, her wolf is there with her but she is unable to shift so her father has no use for her. He is wanting to mate her to another wolf Alpha to make an alliance with.

Trey Coleman is the Alpha of his pack he has heard about Taryn and has his enforcers kidnap her to make her an offer that hopefully will help her and his pack.

The two of them make a very dominate pair and sometimes they had to learn to give a little.

The rest of the pack are so entertaining and make you laugh out loud. Wait until you meet Trey's Grandma.

What did you like best about this story?

Loved the way Taryn teaches Trey to let go and have fun.

What about Jill Redfield’s performance did you like?

Very good at the descriptions of each person. Was able to know at all times who was speaking.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed out loud. got really teary eyed.

Any additional comments?

I usually only listen to audios at work. and when Friday comes if I have not finished that audio I wait until Monday to get back in it. But this one! I had to get up early Saturday and finish it. Am I going to wait to start book 2 audio Wicked Cravings. I am not sure. I need to listen more about The Phoenix Pack .

Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood . . . an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn't hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that?
