Over the past decade, Khaz has watched as supernatural creatures like himself have turned the world into their own personal playground. Unlike the others, he didn't benefit from the Takeover, and every time he sells himself to keep a roof over his head, he's keenly aware of that fact. His landlord, a renowned slaver, offers him the chance to catch up on his rent by breaking a human.

This book is one of my favorites of the series. I love Khaz and Noah so much I was excited to listen to their story. Jack Noble does a great job getting the characters and their struggles down. He plays the roles really well and narrates the story in a way that it's easy to visualize.

I was a bit worried because I love these characters so much and I wanted them to be perfect, but I think he nails them beautifully and I can't wait to hear the next book because that one has some of the best emotionally charged scenes in the series and hearing them will be fun.

I'm so glad that R. Phoenix chose this narrator for the series because he's doing a fantastic job and I couldn't picture anyone else voicing these characters.

One accident has turned Jackson’s life completely upside down. When Jackson’s sister inadvertently posts an ad for a puppy play book instead of his dog training business, his inbox explodes with the most interesting emails he’s ever seen. In a sea of kink that he’s never even considered, one sweet letter stands out. It’s polite and earnest, and something about the two men’s words touches him in a way he never expected...but they’re not just looking for a lover...they’re looking for a master.

I loved this story. All the characters are well-written, thought out, and fun. The narration is spot on. I love how Kenneth Obi was able to make all three characters have a unique voice. The characters were brought to life through the narration and it didn't feel like I was listening to a book, but real people have interesting and intriguing conversations. Such a sweet, lovable book that was read really well.

Until three weeks ago, Dorian was a human - one of those subjugated by the supernatural beings who now rule the world. He spent 10 years struggling to survive, but now that he's been turned, he needs to learn how to live. Problem is, there's a lot to learn but not much time to learn it in. Loneliness is far from the only problem, but it seems to be the most pressing.

I love this book I could read and now listen to it all the time.
I love how Dorian and Emery come together even though they shouldn't. It's a great, easy introduction to the Fate of the Fallen series.
Kenneth Obi always does amazing narration. He brings the characters to life.

Rescued from slavers, healer novice Jaime Buchanan finds himself alone and free in Pyrderi, a kingdom of magic, mythical creatures, and a culture as open and kind as his homeland was cruel and close-minded. Despite his rescue, Jaime is not left without scars, both mental and physical. Traumatized by his experience and hiding his gift, Jaime struggles to earn his place in the kitchens of Angharad Palace, the heart of Taliesin City. His former life as a student of the healing arts leaves him at a disadvantage in the kitchens, and his damaged state is becoming more apparent by the day.

I loved this book and was so excited it was going to be an audio. Even more excited when I saw one of my favorite narrators was going to be doing it. I don't have a lot of narrators I love, I'm very picky, but there's something about Joel Leslie that I just love.
The Solstice Prince is a sweet, fluffy romance that will tug on all your lovey dovey heart strings. If you're looking for a book that is sweet and loving then this is one for you. Jaime and Prince Maxim are so cute together.
Joel Leslie brings them to life and I won't be able to reread this book without hearing his crisp, formal accent that is so perfect for Maxim.
I cannot wait for the next book in the Realms of Love series and hope that Joel Leslie keeps narrating the books.

After devoting 18 years of his life to the US Navy, Petty Officer First Class Shane Parker is struggling with the very real possibility of becoming unnecessary. If he doesn't make chief petty officer before he's 20 - and it doesn't seem likely that he will - he'll be retired from active service and placed on the Fleet Reserve list until his mooring lines are officially cut forever. While it would all be very honorable and ceremonial, he simply wasn't civilian material.

I loved the story when I first read it. Listening to Casey Hunter narrate the book made me love it even more!
There were a few times I have to rewind my audio as a few of the voices weren't distinct enough for me, but I knew the story well enough to know who's POV we were supposed to be in. It didn't take me out of the story or the narration.
I did think the time between the end of one chapter and the beginning of another moved too quickly. We didn't really get to absorb the last line before the next chapter started. Other than that I have no complaints about this audio book.
Jessie G is an author I love and I would listen to another audio of her books.
