This was a quick listen, and for the most part, great. The only issue I have, and this is purely personal, I do not enjoy 3rd person stories. I usually only listen or read 1st person.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

The narration was very good, but I just really don't think this book, or these type of stories, are really my cup of tea. I wanted to broaden my horizons when it comes to the type of romance genres I am listening to. I thought to try a book like this, with short stories, would be a good way to ease into it... apparently not.

The stories were written in 3rd person, and I prefer 1st, and the stories were so short, it was hard to develop the characters and storyline.

Although I didn't like this book, if you like short smutty stories, that are quick listens, this is ABSOLUTELY for you. The writing was good, and the narrators are always great.

Jolie Louis is a smart girl. She knows that her best friend, Sage Poirier, is a bad idea. He's a walking, talking cliché. The Adonis quarterback with the bulging biceps and harem of fangirls trailing behind him on campus like a stench you can't get rid of. Sadly, that's also the reason she can't stay away from him. Well, that and the fact that they're roommates. Jolie is already straddling the line between friendship and more when Sage comes to her with an offer she cannot refuse.

Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this. Evelyn Thomas' plans for celebrating her 21st birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.

OMG!!! I forgot how good this book was!! I read it once before, and I remember liking it, but I don't remember LOVING it. This will definitely be one of my regular re-reads/listens!! I remember this being the first book I had listened to narrated by Andi Arndt, and just loving her voice, and the way she didn't just read the story, but actually acted the story, and the emotion in her voice. The story has just enough drama to keep thing interesting, but not so much that it's annoying. Just a great story all around!

Danny "Madman" Maddox isn’t supposed to make Skylar Haze's heart beat out of rhythm. At least not anymore. She hasn't seen that boyish face since the day he left to go on tour with her brother Joey's band. Now, with a major record label backing them, the band is in need of a bit of help, and when Joey asks Skylar to be the band's photographer, she can't help but say yes. Of course, Joey doesn’t know about that forbidden kiss. The one Skylar hopes Danny’s forgotten. But can she?

So... This book was pretty good and so was the narration, the story was just kind of slow.

The narrator was good, but it seemed almost like she was reading in an empty room. Not exactly an echo... kinda hard to explain.

There was no major climax or really any major drama, which made it kinda hard to keep me interested. It was a good story, just not much going on. I am definitely not in the majority with my opinion because soooo many other people rated it 5 stars. Like I said, good story, good narration, just kinda slow.

Doctor Rachel Wilde and detective Grant Murphy meet by chance and it takes only one glance and a simple, gentle touch to ignite their senses. When Grant's wife is in a tragic accident, Rachel goes above and beyond the call of duty to save her life. It is the moment she faces Grant again that their lives begin to spin out of control and they realize the lives of their loved ones were deeply intertwined. The distorted loyalties of the ones they lost will drive a wedge between them and it will take another death, a last will, and a look beyond the grave to find the path they must follow.

This book was pretty good! There was a lot going on, and it was not the typical romance I would read. There was a sort of mystery aspect to the story, which I felt kept it interesting. Also, there were a lot of things that had to happen to get the two main characters together, and even though some parts were a little too "Hallmark Movie-ish", it was still a great story.

As far as the narration goes... GREAT! I'm not usually too big on duet narration, sometimes I feel it's a little hard for me to get into, but the team that did the narration had the best chemistry and worked sooo well together. Later, I found out that they are actually partners in life, as well.

No guy has ever been able to get me off. It was my little secret. Until I accidentally told the whole world. Spilling something so humiliating on my social media is bad enough; I never expected anyone to actually message me about it. Especially not someone as smug and sexy as Heath "O Maker" James. He tells me he doesn't just think he can get me off - he knows it. As hot as he is, he's a total stranger. I shouldn't give him the time of day.

They call him The Mute for a reason. Hard, cold, and calculated, he rarely speaks. When he does, it's with disdain. When he does, his words aren't meant for me. When he does, my stomach flips and my world tilts on its axis. He is 33. I am 18. He's a single dad and my father's business partner. I'm just a kid to him and his enemy's daughter. He's emotionally unavailable. And I am...feeling. Feeling things I shouldn't feel for him. Trent Rexroth is going to break my heart. The writing isn't just on the wall, it's inked on my soul.

If anyone ever said being an adult was easy, they hadn't been one long enough. Diana Casillas can admit it: she doesn't know what the hell she's doing half the time. How she's made it through the last two years of her life without killing anyone is nothing short of a miracle. Being a grown-up wasn't supposed to be so hard.

I LOVED this book, and the narration was fantastic!! I don't think any other narrator could have done Mariana Zapata's character justice, other than Callie Dalton.

Now, about the book. This is the second book I've read by Mariana Zapata (the first was The Wall of Winnipeg and Me), and after reading this one, I have no idea why I haven't read them all. She is a fantastic writer. I love the slow burn of the story, and when they finally get to the hot parts, THEY ARE HOT. Haha

I will absolutely be re-reading this book on the regular.

P.S. At some points, I read along while listening to Audible. There is a small part towards the end in the audio version that explains about the toolbox, that is missing from the Kindle version. This has been a question I have read in a few places on the internet.
