Sam of Wilds faced the Dark wizard Myrin and lived to tell the tale. Granted, the battle left him scarred, but things could be a hell of a lot worse. It’s not until he reunites with Morgan of Shadows and Randall that he realizes just how much worse things could be. Because the scars have meaning and hint at Myrin’s true plans for Sam and the Kingdom of Verania. With time running out, Sam and his band of merry misfits must travel to the snowy mountains in the North and the heart of the Dark Woods to convince the remaining dragons to stand against Myrin.

I don't think I've ever laughed out loud so much during a book series as I have while listening to these books. The story, characters & narration is incredible. The way Michael Lesley tells a story & brings a book to life is 5+++ stars all the way. I've never heard someone narrate a book like him before and it's so refreshing. Lightening Struck Heart series has been the first books I've ever read by TJ Klune and I'm FAN. I will be binge reading all his books immediately. Can't wait for the next one in this series to come out on audible!

Ever notice that sometimes a guy will do something really stupid, like let the love of his life slip through his fingers? Yeah. I'm that guy. But the instant I run into her again I've got one goal and one goal only—a second chance. The plan? Go big or go home. Fine, at first glance, stripping naked at my ex-girlfriend's place of work might not seem like the brightest way to win her heart again. But trust me on this count—she always liked me best without any clothes on. And sometimes you've got to play to your strengths when you're fighting an uphill battle.

New year. New place. New me. Right? Wrong. And all because of Shay Coleman. Football captain and quarterback, he was the big guy on campus. The cocky guy in my political science class with a smirk. I hated him on sight...and he was about to break all my rules.

I did like this book but it felt like there were too many side stories happening throughout with not enough conclusion to each one. I won't get into it too much because I don't want to spoil it but there are at least 3 major events that happen and the last one is just weird. I thought it was a strange way to end the book and it really didn't make a lot of sense to me. If felt rushed and unnecessary. I liked both the MCs but definitely enjoyed Shay WAY better.

Hailey Taylor Emery has a hunch that her favorite client at Fetch - an anonymous virtual assistant service - is actually hockey star Matt Eriksson. Although it's against the rules for her to check his file, she's 95 percent sure she spends at least part of each day texting with her lifelong crush and catering to his every need. Still nursing a wounded heart thanks to her recent breakup, Hailey is perfectly content with some harmless online flirting...until she has to meet her client.

They say that life is a beautiful lie and death a painful truth. They're right. No one has ever made me feel more alive than the guy who serves as a constant reminder that my clock is ticking. He is my forbidden, shiny apple. The striking fallacy to my blunt, raw, truth. He is also my sister's ex-boyfriend. One thing you should know before you judge me: I saw him first. I craved him first. I loved him first. Eleven years later, he waltzed into my life, demanding a second chance. Dean Cole wants to be my bronze horseman. Hopefully, he isn't too late.

I'll start with reviewing the narrators. Lucy Rivers was great. She did a great shop bringing her character and supporting characters to life. Alexander Cendese was ok until he did the female voices. I can't describe it well but he just made them all sound the same with a terrible woman impersonation. It was distracting and awkward. The story was just ok as well. I had several moments where I laughed out load which is why I have it 3 stars instead of 2. Overall just an alright book. I won't be reading the first book or any other in this series.

They say love and hate are the same feelings experienced under different circumstances, and it's true. The man who comes to me in my dreams also haunts me in my nightmares. He is a brilliant lawyer. A skilled criminal. A beautiful liar. A bully and a savior, a monster and a lover. Ten years ago, he made me run away from the small town where we lived. Now, he came for me in New York, and he isn't leaving until he takes me with him.

I absolutely loved this book and the characters. This was the first book I've read by this author and I'm definitely a fan after this book. It's funny, clever & witty but also has great depth to the characters and their story. The narrators just added to the greatness of this book. I'm picky with my narrators and they definitely did an amazing job bringing the characters and their personalities to life. 5 star in my opinion.

Furious and humiliated after her mate refused to claim her, she runs off to hide among the humans. Why wait around for an Alpha male to love her when he’d obviously prefer to ignore her?

Didn't like this book as much as the first 2 but it was still a good listen. I may have liked it more but the horrible nickname "Beavis" was a mood killer. Whenever I heard it I cringed! It was even used during a sex scene and that really REALLY killed the moment for me. It's still a good book with 5 star narration. Thank God for the amazing Jill Redfield who almost made the word Beavis not as cringy and brought the characters to life :)

I've listened to this book 4 times and love it! After listening to all the other books in the series (so far) this one is still my favorite hands down! The others are good, but there's something about these two main characters Taryn & Trey that have the rest of them beat.

This was a great book and I loved the characters. I was not a fan of the narrator. I've listened to other books read by Michael Pauley and he's just really awkward during sex scenes. He makes it sound like he's being chased and is extremely scared. Like I should be preparing for a horror scene instead of a sexy BJ. I've read a lot of other reviewers say they loved him but I am not a fan at all. Great story....weird narrating.
