Determined to overcome a difficult past, Erica Hathaway learns early on how to make it on her own. Days after her college graduation, she finds herself face to face with a panel of investors who will make or break her fledgling startup.

Hardwired is the story of Erica Hathaway who is starting out in business and trying really hard to make a go of it. Into her life walks billionaire Blake Landon who already runs a very successful business and is used to control and getting what he wants.

I have to say that Erica is a strong willed heroine and goes for what she wants, but in some ways, Blake does try to mess things up for her because he wants total control.

There are some fabulous side characters which add to the story and help it along. The first book seems to pose questions that are as yet unanswered. The audio flows well and there wasn’t a gigantic cliff-hanger, but the story goes on for three more books.

There is a lot of talk about business in this audio which gives the book a sense of reality as Erica tries to get funding for her Clozpin online social media fashion website.

Erica pitches her proposal to a room full of investors hoping to have one of them invest in her company and help get it launched. Her interaction with Blake Landon in the meeting was interesting and you couldn’t help but notice the sparks between them. From then on Blake sets his sights on Erica and although he passes at the first meeting he busts his butt to try and make sure she makes it in the business world.

Once he sets his sights on her, you then see a dominant, controlling and the possessive side to him. Yummy!

Warning- if don't like hot sex scenes, a plot and two people who will fight to the death to be together then DON'T listen to this title.

The first in a sexy new series by Katy Evans, New York Times best-selling author of the REAL series... This is the story I’ve been waiting for all my life, and its name is Malcolm Kyle Preston Logan Saint. Don’t be fooled by that last name, though. There’s nothing holy about the man except the hell his parties raise. The hottest entrepreneur Chicago has ever known, he’s a man’s man with too much money to spend and too many women vying for his attention.

Seventeen-year-old Caymen Meyers learned early that the rich are not to be trusted. And after years of studying them from behind the cash register of her mom's porcelain-doll shop, she has seen nothing to prove otherwise. Enter Xander Spence-he's tall, handsome, and oozing rich. Despite his charming ways and the fact that he seems to be one of the first people who actually gets her, she's smart enough to know that his interest won't last.

The pain was unbearable, but I had to keep moving. I had to keep running, because if I didn't, he'd find me. I looked behind me as I ran through the streets; scared, alone, and in the dark as the mist of rain hit my face. My name is Rory Sinclair, and the night I was violently attacked was the night that changed my life forever. One man, a man named Ian Braxton, made it his mission to heal me, to save me, and to show me a world that previously had been only a dream to me.

Wow Sandi has done it again. Lie Next To Me is Ian and Rory's story. It's very different to the Forever Black series, it's more raw, your emotions go crazy and you're sucked into the story right from the beginning, I savoured every word.

Ian Braxton is arrogant, sexy, rich, powerful and at times frustrating. He saves Aurora aka Rory, he takes her home to care for her. You soon see what kind of person he is deep down, he might be closed off emotionally but you see how caring and gentle he can be. I started to wonder why he would take a stranger into his home and care for her so deeply when he didn't know a thing about her.

Rory's life was anything but easy, she has so much to deal with but remains strong and tries her best under the circumstances. After her attack she wouldn't tell Ian who'd done it, and what haunts her dreams. Everyone needs someone right? Ian is the one person she wants to rely on and get close to, however that can't happen in his eyes.

They have a hard battle ahead of them in more ways than one. Can two people from such different lives let each other in and make each other whole?

A beautifully written story with a roller coaster ride of emotion. I can't wait to read the next book.

As a member of the royal family in a small European country, Griffin Verdi's presence is requested at the wedding of the century. The scholarly billionaire feels out of his depth in social situations, so a good assistant is required-especially when dealing with royal etiquette. Unfortunately for Griffin, he's stuck with Maylee Meriweather, a pretty, charming, and thoroughly unsuitable woman who doesn't know a thing about high society - but she sure can kiss.

Welcome to Angel Hill, Missouri, a town that shot blood from the ground at its own groundbreaking. There are only two roads in or out of town, and everything within those borders is subject to the whims of reality. Those who grew up here are immune to the town's peculiarities. But Jack and Liz have just moved here, and for their young son, Joey, it's almost like coming home again.

Amanda having so many insecurities is never fully explained or justified. Her parents are great. Her sister is great. There were no experiences in her background to justify that many complications or the level of insecurities she held so tight onto.

This book has the type of misunderstandings, simple questions and dialogue that could have solved everything-except the cancer of course.

Pass!

Major let down! Cora and Rome spoke maybe three times in audio. They didn't have real chemistry. I've read some good writing with military men and this one wasn't so great.. Jay just went on and on and on it was kinda boring and that kind of story interests me so.....

This book just was all over the place, some really good story lines just no real development of any ONE!!

But their story is far from complete.…

Emmy struggles with her decision to continue a relationship with Ben. Not because she doesn’t love him with all that she has, but because she struggles with feeling that she will never be enough to fit into his world. Ben has never known anything but the glorious life of travel and luxury. Always surrounded by beautiful women, whom Emmy feels she will never measure up to, she wonders if love is really enough.

Ben has never needed another person the way that he needs Emmy. Not only does she see Ben as a person and not some famous model, but Emmy loves him for who he is, baggage and all. There is no doubt in his mind that Emmy is the one for him, and he will do everything in his power to keep her.

What I love so much about this book was that the relationship between Emmy and Ben is real. They have their troubles and they have to really work to get through them. Ben has a past, a very real one, and Emmy struggles with being a simple girl constantly having to deal with his past that feels like she will never beat.

Ben has never wanted to be tied down. He’s enjoyed the lifestyle he has, traveling and never keeping to just one woman. But Emmy has completely turned his world upside down, and now Ben struggles with trying to prove to Emmy that she is all he will ever need.

In Working It, we got little bits of what Ben was thinking and feeling, and I loved that in Craving Him, we get so much more from him. You are really able to understand and feel the struggles that both these characters go through. This was such a beautiful end for Ben and Emmy.
