Laya is called the Princess, but in fact, she’s nothing but a slave to her husband and cult leader Andros. Abused and suppressed, she has no hope of escape until three new recruits enter her life. They quickly take to living in the compound, but Laya can’t help feeling that they’re different. That they might not believe in what they have to do for Andros. That they aren’t as cold and cruel as him.

My orders are simple. Capture her. Marry her. Take her inheritance. Get rid of her. The bookish little recluse is worth more than she knows. She’s an unassuming librarian. I’m the brigadier of the Russian Bratva. She has no friends. I command a small army. She’s a modest woman. And now she’s mine.

I wasn't looking for his kind of trouble. It found me anyway. Tall. Dark. Addictive. He unravels me with his kisses. Melts me with his touch. But he has secrets. A hidden agenda beyond his craving for me. A desire for more than tangled silk sheets and our sweat-slicked skin. I need to run. From him. From the lies. But running from the hunter means I've now become the prey.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author to review.

I have been running for ten years--fleeing my past and clawing my way toward an inescapable act of vengeance. Until he walks into my life sure and strong and full of secrets. He dilutes my thirst for retribution with his touch. He obliterates my need for solitude with his kiss. But it's his hidden agenda that makes the hair on the back of my neck prickle. He wants something. Something that doesn't revolve around sweaty skin and tangled silk sheets like he would have me believe. I have to stop falling for him, otherwise the last ten years will all be for nothing. I need to keep running, keep fighting for vengeance, even though I know he will track me down. But trying to escape him is just another problem. Because I crave the hunt.

Holy wow. I can not say enough about his book. It is freaking romantic suspense at it's best. I so want to talk about this story but have this huge fear of giving something away and I am not willing to do that. You just need to know that Hunter is amazing!! Hunter will have you listening from the start to the finish in one fail swoop. Hunter is a must listen. Eden Summers has written some amazing books but this one is probably my most favorite of hers. It is on that if your new to her books you want to start with and if you have read her other books you know that your really in for it. I will say that if you think your going to be able to figure this one out, your wrong. So wrong. Grab Hunter and enjoy the ride. The Narrators did an amazing job with it too Sometmes audiobooks sound kind of crazy to me but this one does not and will keep you in the moment with the charscters.

I wanted a family with Cash. We had dreams - building a house, kids, a dog, and, yes, even the white picket fence. I don’t remember anything about my husband. Not the wedding or the vows we shared. The past 10 years were erased, but with time, they’re supposed to come back. But what if this isn’t your typical case of amnesia? What if I’m not supposed to remember? What if I was meant to forget? Maybe I don’t want my old life back. Because if the accident hadn’t happened, I wouldn’t have uncovered the truth. Losing my memory wasn’t tragic. Losing my memory was fate.

I really loved listening to this book. Sarah Puckett did an amazing job of narrating Until We Are Gone. While listening if you close your eyes it will all play out before your eyes like a movie. This is a emtotional book with a ton of twists and turns. Things that you will never see coming. Meadow is married to Cash. However there is a terrible accident and Meadow wakes up missing ten years of her life. A life that she shared with Cash as her husband and the man sitting beside her, but one she does not remember at all. This is one that you need to just grab, listen to, and not try to figure it out. There is just no way you possibly can. Fantastic Listen I highly recommend.

Oh my gosh what can I say about Laz and Drea except that I loved them. I loved every second of listening to this book and the narration was absolutely amazing. Meghan Kelly did an absolute fabulous job of narrating this book. It had me hooked from the beginning and I found myself listening when I really had something else to do. Who needs clean dishes or clothes right?? This is one audio book that you do not want to miss. I love Michelle Valentines books and this will go down as one of my absolute favorites.

I have a blind date tonight, and I know with 100% certainty that I’m getting lucky. There shouldn’t be any surprises, not for one as jaded as me, but when I walk into the penthouse suite of L’Etoile, everything changes. For one thing, Bea is heartstoppingly gorgeous. Pale green eyes and endless freckles. Curves I want to spend all night exploring, as if her body was made for me. Her innocence makes me want to use my entire inventory of bedroom tricks on her and then invent a few more. Except that…she’s a virgin. I can initiate her into the world of desire without letting her get attached, can’t I? A few hours of tutoring, and at the end of the night a small fortune will be deposited into my bank account. Yes, you read that right. There are many words for what I do. After all, mine is the oldest profession. I’m an escort, which means this date is nothing more than a mutually enjoyable transaction. But once I realize one night with her won’t be enough, I’m the one who’s screwed.

In Escort we meet Hugo who is a high paid escort. There is so much more to his story though. When he meets Bea who is a client he is blown away and when he finds out she just wants him there to take her virginity his whole world is rocked. You see Bea isn't just another customer to Hugo and she also could be his key to revenge for his past. A past that broke my heart really. Hugo and Bea have not had easy lives. His I will let you read and find out but Bea is probably one of the richest women in America since her parents died and she inherited everything but Bea was young and has a guardian. Sadly it seems that he didn't really care about her he just put her up in a penthouse and there Bea stays 24 hours a day basically with her thoughts, paralyzing fear, and a passion for music and playing the piano that blow people away. I loved these two characters so much. I loved their stories and back stories and I wanted only the best for them. I was also happy to see The Den again and Damon Scott. I love when past characters show up in books you totally don't expect them to. This is so much more than escort meets client. This is a beautiful love story that you will fall in love with. I read and listened to this book and loved it both ways. You can not go wrong with Escort

My story starts with a plunge into the cold water of Manhattan's harbor. A strong hand hauls me back onto the deck of the luxury yacht. Christopher was supposed to be my enemy, the son of my father's latest wife. Instead he protect me with fierce determination when I need him most. This tale begins with a fall, but it doesn't end there. Because another man wants me. Sutton wants to consume me with a passion more feral than kind. In the lush emotional wilderness I'm not sure I want Christopher to save me this time....Or if there will be anything left this time...

This is the first book in the Survival of the Richest Series. I will go ahead a tell you to expect a cliffhanger at the end of this book. But the wait is not long for the second book...thank goodness.
If you have not read Trust Fund yet don't worry because that book is the first few chapters in that book where we learn that Harper's Dad has passed away and left Christopher in charge of her trust until she turns a certain age but all he can do is provide for her college education and housing. Now Harper's mom has cancer, they have survived by her selling her paintings but Christopher cut off the payment from her credit card that would have gotten her mom into a experimental treatment plan. The time has come to confront him and when she barges into Christopher's office she isn't greeted by Christopher but his business partner Sutton. He agrees to take her to a party that Christopher will be at and she ends up working with them really. However Christopher wants to tear down a historical library and build a mall but Harper falls in love with the building and all the books in them. However things are not as Harper expects them to be. Christopher is the one that Harper has had a thing for since she met him and now Sutton wants her and is not shy about telling her or showing her how she feel. There is a lot of fight in this book and the decision Harper has to make is not an easy one by any means. However, everything is not as it seems and the ending will leave you breathless. I can not wait to find out what happens with Harper, Christopher and Sutton. This is a great book and well worth reading. I listened to this book on audible too The narration was amazing and made the book absolutley come to life

Until he crossed the line.

I've tried to forget it and move on, but I can't. Ways to inflict even just a small portion of the pain he made me feel f--king consumes me. Somewhere in his fucked up, twisted mind, he thought it would be okay to share my girl. Now.... Now, he gets to see what it feels like to share what is his.

Jameson Daniels has been betrayed by his best friend of twenty years Cole King. A betrayal so deep that Jameson many never be able to forgive him. Cole had Jameson's girlfriend of four years so why can't Jameson pay him back by going after the girl he's interested in. Cole is going to know what it feels like to share Brooke Collins. Jameson just has to make sure she she falls for the right one of them in the end....Cole. But once Jameson gets a taste all bets are off.

The first thing I'm going to say is WOW!!!! Hard and Reckless is absolutely amazing. I love a good love triangle. Jameson, Cole and Brooke make one amazing triangle but there so much more than that. A betrayal leading to payback and lots of fun for Brooke with two hot alpha males takes on a whole different feel than the usual love triangles. She's not suppose to fall for Jameson, she's suppose to want Cole. He had her first. I swear these three characters all brought the heat. I could literally feel the emotions from them all pouring off the pages. This is what makes Victoria Ashley one of my favorite authors. The way her words flow with such depth and emotion that you can't help but be sucked up in the story and loving every moment of these she characters lives with them.

When Victoria Ashely announces she has written a new book I become a stalking fangirl until I know when it's coming out and when review sign ups are. I do not miss her books. She never disappoints and always always do I say this is my favorite book. I'd honesty hate to have to pick my favorite Victoria Ashley book. If you've read her books you know that Hemy is one of her best male characters of all time. I love him and he's always been at the top of my book boyfriend list. Sorry Hemy, but you've been knocked down a place on the list and Jameson Daniels now hold my heart. I didn't think it was possible but it happened. This is a definite must read. If you don't read but one book this year this should be the one. It's got everything you could ever want and so much more from a book.

I received a copy of this book in audio book form for a review for Stephanie's Book Reports.

Everything you have heard about modeling is true, and you haven't heard the half of it. It is glamorous. It is sexy. And yes the line between work and reality often blurs. We are not just prototypes of perfections. Models have feelings and desires too. We may be genetically gifted, but we are still human. I'm only human. Yes, an extraordinary specimen that earns more in a day than most make in a year., but this eight pack didn't create itself. I spend hours working on this body. The good looks just come natural. Thanks, Mom and Dad. I am Danny Weston, Supermodel. But one path was traded for another when I chose this career. Ten years later, I would trade my career to have it back. To have her back. Reese Carmichael is the one woman I would give it all up for, and the only one I can't have yet.

I loved listening to this book. It was amazing and I couldn't take the headphones from my ears even if I wanted to. I love a good second chance love story and this one is good. It is also funny and had me laughing out loud. Danny and Reese meet up again after ten years and their chemistry is still there. These two at one time were head over heals for each other. Letting Reese go is one of Danny's' biggest regrets. Even his fame didn't cause him to forget about Reese. However Reese has concerns about being with Danny again and fears that she could lose everything that she has worked so hard for all these years. You are so going to swoon over Danny and there is just no way you will not fall in love with Reese too. This book will definitely give you a book hangover but in the best way possible.

People call me Father, but I prefer Frank, because I'm the worst preacher you'll ever meet. Days spent completely wasted pull a number on you, especially when you've got a truckload of baggage that comes with it. Until this beautiful girl in the back of the church takes my breath away. And we end up committing sacrilege in the confessional. Bad doesn't even begin to describe me, and after one taste of what she's got to offer, I want more.

I read the book first but listening to it was a whole other experience that I loved. The Narration was amazing Gregory Sutton has outdone himself snd it was more like watching a movie in yiur head than listening to a book.

Welcome to Clarissa Wild's Father. When I first read the description of this book I was so curious but I said a prayer that God wouldn't strike me dead for reading this book. I'm happy to report I'm still here though I did duck a time or two waiting to be struck. It's okay to laugh I did because sometimes I just way overthink things.

People call Frank Father but he will tell you hes a preacher. The worst preacher ever too. He spends his days most of the time at the local bar getting smashed. Come to think of it he rarely doesn't have a liquor bottle in his hand. Frank has some seriously messed up baggage that he carries around and he just can't quiet figure out why exactly it is that God keeps him around on this earth. Enter a girl who takes Franks breath away and makes him feel for the first time in ages. Laura though has some serious baggage and huge secrets just like Frank and neither one of them are sharing those secrets. There just sharing some pretty steamy stuff in the confessional and the altar of the church!! EEEP!! Yep, you guessed it I ducked during these parts too. Oh and did I mention that Frank if a very very dirty boy. He will cause your kindle to melt.

I really enjoyed this book. Don't be afraid to take a chance. I made it though and I am a God fearing walking the straight and narrow the best that I can kind of gal. I would be lying if I didn't tell you my mouth was hanging open a few times and I literally did duck during one part of this but you have to read to understand Frank the preacher. He is not ordained and there is a reason he is a preacher. I loved trying to figure out everything there was to figure out in this book. I got the one part but boy oh boy I did not see the secret Laura was holding onto coming from a mile a way.

As always Clarissa Wild has taken me for a ride on the dark side and I loved every single second of this book.
