I’ll just start by saying I love the Fatal Series, every last one of them. If I’m looking for a feel good read I will always turn to Fatal Destiny. Having Sam and her Senator Nick get their Happily Ever After wedding is such a treat. There are of course a few bumps along the way. It wouldn’t be a Fatal book without some obstacles thrown in for Nick and his Lieutenant to overcome. This is a re-listen many times over!!

It is no secret that I’m a Carrie Ann Ryan fan. I own every book she’s written. I was especially touched by Murphy and Tessa’s story. This truly is a story about overcoming the past and the residual fear that remains so that you can embrace the present and the future. These characters each have their strengths and weaknesses, as all human beings do. Carrie Ann brings a realistic view of what is like to have to face a foe that you thought you had already beaten. I would recommend this book as well as any of her others.

First let me say I love the cover of this book and I loved what was behind the cover too. Carrie Ann Ryan is a go to author for me and if she writes it I will read it or listen to it as the case may be. This book has it all. Adrienne and Mace are trying to navigate a new business that someone doesn’t want to stay open and trying to figure out how to turn their close friendship into that of one of lovers and more. It the midst of all that angst we have Mace becoming a full time father to sweet Daisy. There are so many layers to their story and we also get introduced to characters that we will meet in the following books of this series. On top of all wonderful that is their story we are treated to the yummy deliciousness that is narrator Joe Arden. Does it get any better than this? I guess we’ll find out. If you have not listened to this audiobook do yourself a favor and buy it now. You won’t regret it.

Jasper is the Beta of the Redwoods. Willow is a sweet baker that makes sweet treats. She knows nothing of the shifter world and he knows she's his mate. So how do you convince a human she's meant to be yours? Ask her out. Only before the date can happen Willow is taken and decisions have to be made. This book is sometimes graphic and often sweet. It is a story about making the best of a situation in less than ideal circumstances. You can't go wrong with Carrie Ann Ryan and Gregory Salinas does a good job bringing life to the world she has created.

Loved this book!! Combine the heir to the Brentwood pack and the princess of the Talon pack and there are going to be sparks, and where's there's smoke there's fire. Carrie Ann Ryan does such a wonderful job of writing the story and Gregory Salinas does such a great job of telling it that it is easy to get immersed in this audiobook. The story is riveting and the emotions and stakes are high. This is a can't go wrong on every level.

One storm and the lives off seven friends are changed forever. Jamie is one of these friends and she has been gifted with powers that she will receive upon finding her true-half. Ambrose is an angel that is almost as old as time. He has suffered a great loss and doesn't hold out hope for future happiness. Then, there is Balin, a demon that doesn't want to perform his duties. Each of them is searching for something and through the manipulations of others and a hand from fate, they might just find what they are searching for. I love the premise of this series. The author is a go to for me and the narrator does a good job at giving the characters a voice. This is a must read, or must listen too in this case. You can't go wrong with this series or this author.

Oh boy does this book have a lot going on. Miranda is the youngest of the Montgomery siblings. She has been in love with her brother's best friend for as long as she can remember. Decker is the best friend and he feels the same way about Miranda. There is the normal relationship angst but there is so much more. Miranda has a stalker. Decker has "I'm not good enough" issues that stem from a dysfunctional family and when I say dysfunctional that is an understatement. This might be my favorite Montgomery book so far. I love a good, unrequited love book. With this book you get that and so much more!!
