The companion was a sweet, easy reading romance. If you're looking for a nice way to spend an afternoon then this book is for you. The narration was excellent, and really helped to make something just a little more out of the story. I received a free copy of the book and am choosing to leave this honest review.

All Jacked Up was a very easy listen. I enjoyed the characters and the extended family was a hoot. Even the animals had great personalities! The narrator did a good job as well. All in all, this was an enjoyable read. I received a free copy of this book and then voluntarily leaving this review.

Ash: I still don't know how it happened. One minute, I was arguing with my arrogant competitor - our usual trash-talk over who deserves the larger commission. But somehow, I went from throwing down to kneeling down.... It can never happen again. I don't even like him. He's too slick. He's a manipulating, mansplaining party boy in preppy clothes. So why can't I get him out of my head? Sebastian: Ash is my missing my piece. She's the sweet cream to my gourmet espresso. And nothing gets me going faster than her contempt for me.

The moment Sadie Matthews walks through the daycare center door, I feel my world tilt in her direction. Again. I fell for her when I was 14, and I’m still not over her. Problem: She still thinks of me as a teen she used to babysit. But I’ve learned a few things about pleasing a woman in the last 15 years. I can’t wait to show her how good it could be. I need to move quickly before I lose her again. This is more than a game to me, but I still plan to win.

Running into the one-off she’s never been able to forget complicates the hell out of her summer holiday. Ivy Wright knows several things to be true: Marrying a guy who can’t keep it in his pants is a terrible idea. So is having a drunken, secret one-night stand with her best friend’s little brother. And catching a soccer ball with one’s face never works out well for anyone. When all three collide, what was supposed to be a relaxing vacation in the English countryside becomes unbelievably awkward not to mention sexually charged.

Is it getting hot in here or is that just this book? I want to start by saying that I absolutely loved the narrators. They were truly fantastic. Now if you are looking for a story that is extremely heavy in the steam department this book would be a five star for sure. I gave it four because I was looking for a bit more than that and I got annoyed with the main character's constant self image issues. Like I said before though, TONS of steam in this book, and fantastic narration. I was given a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving this honest review.

What a busy book! Whew! Romance, time travel, exes, danger, sacrifice... it's all so much! The story in and of itself was pretty good, however, I had a very hard time with the narrator. The voices we're fairly similar for the different characters, there were no southern accents even though the majority of the story takes place in the south, and most of the narration was delivered with little to no emotion. I feel it let the story down a little bit. Over all though, I think the story was pretty good and worth a read.

At 34, I'm reeling from a divorce. I don't want to party or try to move on. I just want to stay home and post a new recipe on my blog: Brynn's Dips and Balls. But my friends aren't having it. Get out there again, they say. It will be fun, they say. I'm still taking a hard pass. Free designer cocktails, they say. And that's a game-changer. Too bad my ex shows up with his new arm candy. That's when I lose my mind.

I enjoyed this story! The entire cast of characters were well written and really helped bring the whole thing to life. I swear there were many times where I wished they were MY friends and family. Getting down to the nitty gritty, there are a couple of points I'd like to highlight about this book. First, the main characters are NOT perfect they both try their hardest, they both screw up, and there were many moments I would have happily strangled both of them. However, they are both good people and I found it easy to work through their flaws which I kind of think was the whole point, so job well done! LOL Second, there are definite religious overtones throughout the story, however, if you find yourself hesitant to buy for that reason, don't let it stop you. The intances where it played in are worked into the story seemlessly and are definitely never "preachy". Finally, a great deal of time is spent with a child in a health crisis and that is so well written that it could be a bit of a trigger to someone sensitive to it, so just a heads up. I requested a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving this honest review.

Alexa O'Brien is a rarity among supernaturals. A hunter of supernatural rogues, she's a werewolf with unusual but extraordinary power. Power that fiercely draws her to Arys, the intriguing sexy-as-sin vampire who awakens her dark side. What they create together is dangerous and binding, a unique but massive force that threatens her humanity and tests the love she possesses for someone else.

I enjoyed this. Lots of action, lots of steam, a nice cast of characters. I think it's a good, solid start to a new series, although you can easily read this one as a stand alone if you choose to. The narration was pretty good as well. Sarah did a good job handling all of the different characters, and I never found myself wondering who was speaking. All in all, I would say this is book is certainly worth a listen! I requested a free copy of this book and am choosing to leave this honest review voluntarily.

Growing up in the foster system, Della never really had anything to call her own, not even a last name. Now, the truth was exposed, but there was still so much she didn't know. Hoping to learn more about the mother she never knew and maybe discover a bit more about herself along the way, Della travels across the country seeking answers - and finds far more than she bargained for. An unimaginable world - one on the brink of war - is pulling her in and making her claim a birthright she never knew she wanted.

I truly enjoyed this book! The author's world and character building are fantastic and really allow for the reader (or listener in this case) to become emersed in the story. I listened to the entire book in a single day because it was that good. The narration is spot on as well. While I requested and received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving this honest review, I am more than eager for the second installment to come out so I can purchase it and continue this terrific story.
