A great story and excellent continuation of the story! I've waited for this to come out and was not disappointed. Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott are great narrators and brought a new dimension to an already good story. Don't miss this one.

Alyssa Wayne woke up with a start. She lay there holding her breath, listening intently to the quiet. After a tense moment, she let out her breath, relaxed, and was just about to turn over when she heard a soft scratching noise. The next sound she heard had her sitting straight up in bed. She was certain it was the click of the front door. She sat paralyzed with fear at the certainty that someone had just entered her apartment. She was equally certain it wasn’t her roommate.

I read this book first and totally enjoyed it, but I must say the D. C. Cole brings another whole dimension to the story and I loved the narration. This is the most recent installment in the Alexander Ranch series, and I certainly hope it is not the last. A good story with some interesting plot twists. Lela seems to be caught in an untenable position because of her gift, but Jordan finally shows some maturity and gets past his jealousy. Now, if they can only keep Lela alive. Fast paced and dramatic. Quite an enjoyable read.

I loved the story of Clementine and Ed. The story was well developed and several times I thought I knew and discarded the name of the villain in my mind. This is a great story and part of it was how great the secondary characters were. I am hoping we will see more of Tessa and Nevin (sp?), Ed's brother, Lafe, and Clem's sister, Frances. Andi Arndt is a wonderful narrator and with her voicing, brings an extra emotional dimension to the story. Usually, I buy the book and read it first, but with the audio coming out prior to the book, this was a new experience for me. Well worth your time and well worth a credit.

To the world, I'm a just a Conjurer. To my closest friends, I'm a FireSoul - a dangerous Magica with forbidden powers and a dragon's soul. The downside? If anyone discovers what I am, I'm dead. So I lay low, kicking butt with my weapons, not my magic. Things get ugly when I witness the murder of a powerful vampire ally and become the key suspect. Soon, I'm hunted by the sexiest, strongest supernatural I've ever met. Ares is an unheard of vampire hybrid, and it's hard to say if he wants to kiss me or kill me. I've got three days to catch the real killer.

I enjoyed this whole series by X. Aratare and Michael Pauley did a great job on the narration. I really enjoyed his differentiation of the characters in this series as I had not heard him do accented dialog before. Although it is a "story old as time" as the song goes, this one has a great twist to make it different from all the other beauty/beast type stories you have heard. I read the books and listened to the audible both. All three are well worth your time and well worth a credit.

I had not read anything by KuroKoneko Kamen nor had I listened to Burks Rives prior to this book. I won the audio in a contest. I must say that I was a little lost at first in the book not knowing the characters which is a failing on my part rather than the author's. However, it was not too far into the book that I was hooked and enjoyed the rest of the story. Burks Rives does a great job with the narration and brought a great dimension to the story. I would suggest you read/listen to the other books first, but this book is totally worth a listen!

I am not a big fan of dual narration, but this one grew on me as it progressed. I had read the book, but I like to listen to Joel Leslie, so I picked this one up. It's a good story with lots of drama and emotion. Worth your time and the credit.

For the past eight years, Julien Thornton has been living with a secret. One that only a handful of people know about. To the outside world, he has it all. A thriving career. A loving husband. And a face that the American public fell for by the millions, on a reality show that inadvertently saved his life. But behind the shine of celebrity, behind the easygoing nature, a crippling truth fills Julien with pain and self-loathing. It's a truth that he fights to overcome daily with the help of his husband, Joel Priestley, and now their boyfriend, Robbie Bianchi.

And made hotter by the excellent narration by Charlie David. Robbie's book brought the darling Robbie into the orbit of Priest and Julien, this book ties the three more firmly together with the detailing of more secrets. I can't wait to hear the audible of Priest's book. I read the book and then listened to the audible. Oh yum, I wish I knew french. This listen is really worth your time and a credit.
