Wow! I’m so glad I browsed through Audible Originals and found this great book that I couldn’t stop listening to. I know there’s another and I plan on getting that too. Although this one ended well I can’t wait to know more of their story. This one was full of unexpected surprises. Such a great story teller too.

OMG, I could not stop listening!! I had to know all! It was as action packed through out this book and revelation after revelation. I cried with happiness was filled with frustration and anger sometimes at the characters. Even sadness at losses. Lol. It’s so good.

If someone were to ask Jasmine Santos to describe the last few years of her life with a single word, it would definitely be a four-letter one. After 17 years - and countless broken bones and broken promises - she knows her window to compete in figure skating is coming to a close. But when the offer of a lifetime comes in from an arrogant idiot she's spent the last decade dreaming about pushing in the way of a moving bus, Jasmine might have to reconsider everything.

I really love Mariana Zapata stories. They make me laugh and cry and get so involved in the life of the protagonist. I love getting an inside view of the personal strength, dedication and perseverance of the main character and challenges she overcomes. The sub characters are well developed too and add so much richness to the story. Keep writing and I will read more. I recommend her books.

He's big, burly, and way smarter than your average shapeshifting bear. He's also about to get trapped by his own game...Lou Crushek is a reasonable, mellow, easygoing kind of guy. But when someone starts killing the scumbags he works so hard to bust, that really gets under his fur. Especially when that someone is a curvy she-tiger with a skill set that's turning Crush's lone-bear world upside down - and bringing his passion out of hibernation.

OMG, I have just fallen in love with this author! I really love how deep the main characters are. There is so much to their story that is rich and meaningful. Even the sub characters are well developed. I just realized that this is the third book of hers that I read/listened to and all her books were so good that I could hardly put them down because I wanted to know what was next. I even repeated several spots because I wanted to remember it well. Great book! I hungry for more.
