Graham Russell and I weren't made for one another. I was driven by emotion; he was apathetic. I dreamed while he lived in nightmares. I cried when he had no tears to shed. Despite his frozen heart and my readiness to run, we sometimes shared seconds. Seconds when our eyes locked and we saw each other's secrets. Seconds when his lips tasted my fears and I breathed in his pains. Seconds when we both imagined what it would be like to love one another.

This book definitely had a lot of "twists" that would happen kinda out of left field, which made the book more enjoyable. I really didn't connect with either of Lucy's sisters, they were absolutely the opposite of her. I loved her nickname for Graham, Graham cracker, too cute! He was sort of hard to relate to as he had pretty much zero emotions for a good portion of the book. Talon was super cute, because Hello, kids are always adorbs. A couple of parts of the book did make be a little teary, which means the author definitely did something right. The narration from Erin Mallon & Brian Pallino was the absolute best!

Ok, so this book felt like two completely different stories smashed together into one really long drawn out tale. It was sooo slow at the beginning, and honestly I almost gave up. There are just too many books, to force myself to continue to read one that doesn't grab my attention. The story was attempting to throw in suspense at the bus station and with Natalie's boyfriend and drama with Andrew's dad. And all it did was make me wonder where this book was going. But then at the half way mark it was like a new book, it was more interesting once they headed south and visited one city in particular. You could feel what they were feeling towards each other. Camryn & Andrew were perfect together, once they actually stopped driving and just lived. I was honestly super sad right along with Cam when she found out what Andrew was hiding. But, the ending almost felt rushed because suddenly it was over. I know there is a sequel, but I don't know if I will read it. I listened to the audio version, narrated by Lauren Fortgang, and she did a pretty good job with both the female and male parts

She has a head for business and a body for sin. He is a coach who knows how to use his equipment. Neither is looking for love. Should be easy, right? Wrong. This might be the most important game Kendall Wales and Hunter Owens have ever played where everything is on the line. With one wrong play, they could lose it all. Hopefully, the game clock doesn’t reach zero before it’s too late.

This is a story about Hunter Owens & Kendall Wales. Hunter is a former NFL coach that due to a tragedy one season, has refused to return to coaching anywhere. Until, Minor League General Manager, Kendall shows up out of the blue at his Tennessee ranch. In my opinion, he caved too easily, it didn't seem believable. And she was far too wishy washy to be the strong heroine. The story had a lot of extra shenanigans (for lack of a better word) thrown in to "add" to the story and the last few chapters were more like an epilogue. I listened to the audio version, which had two fantastic narrators with Savannah Peachwood & Stephen Dexter.

Rachel knew exactly what turning thirty would be like. She had a plan, after all. First college, then a climb up the professional ladder. Love, marriage, children. All of it was on the schedule. The cheap Hollywood apartment wasn’t on the list. Neither was the string of heartbreaks. Or the effect her mother’s cancer had on her career. It’s hard to stay practical and on point when everything takes a left turn. Enter Sebastian, the nerd across the street. The boy she defended when he couldn’t defend himself.

Surprisingly, this is my first CD Reiss book. I know from what I've read this would not be considered a "typical" book by her. While I enjoyed Rachel and Sebastian's relationship, especially as kids, it was definitely rushed. I get that was sort of the plot but it just like wake up one morning and BAM! The epilogue for this book made it for me, it was perfect!! Loved narration by Andi Arndt & Brian Pallino <3

Briggs: Remember when we parted ways in Germany? It was the day I broke your heart. What you didn't know was that I was breaking mine too. I thought they'd be enough - my husband and my son. That I'd get home and everything would go back to the way it was...before the war. Before the ambush. Before you. But, no matter how hard I try, I can't erase the trauma we shared. I can't seem to forget the way my heart beat in time with yours. I thought the nightmare was over when they pulled us from that hole in the ground, but nothing could have prepared me for the war I'd face at home.

Wow! Wow! Wow! This book was literally everything. Get ready for the biggest emotional rollercoaster ever (this is not an exaggeration either). I felt so many things for Katy, Briggs and Gavin (and even little Noah). I cannot begin to imagine how these authors were even able to write this story. I floved the epilogue it was amazing!!! The narration, by Tracy Marks and Aaron Sherlock, was spot on and couldn't have been better.

One call. That’s all it took to change everything. The sweet voice on the other end of the line delivered a blow I never saw coming. Fighting for our country’s freedom and staring death in the eye was nothing compared to this news. History has one hell of a way repeating itself. Kate Wilson’s voice didn’t waver once as she turned my worst nightmare into a reality, and her words weaved a cruel poetic justice.

This story takes you on a wild emotional rollercoaster ride. Max has been through so many trials for his young age. I think the beginning was a little confusing, as the author told Max's story through flashbacks of high school and college. Also, I was surprised that Max didn't seem to even attempt to help Allie with her problem, since they were together for so long. I loved that Kate was such an amazing teacher and wasn't afraid to fight for her kids. When Max and Kate meet and spend time with each other, you can almost feel the pull between them. Yes, it was pretty much instalove, but I was mad about them getting together. The ending felt kind of rushed and the "suspense" was like BAM and it's over. I enjoyed the epilogues, they made me super happy :)! I felt the narration was by Heather Edwards & Mark Whalbeck, was just ok.

There’s a fine line between lust and hate. I don’t care that Drew Merritt spent the last year transforming himself from grungy slob to sexy playboy. With messy, dirty blond hair and gorgeous eyes, his looks aren’t the problem. His mouth is. And the stupid things that come out of it. But after an emergency strands us together, and he does his damnedest to take care of me.... Let’s just say there’s one thing we don’t clash on. And it doesn’t involve talking.

This was a bit of a mixed book for me, I loved the beginning when Drew & Kendall were snowed in. And then when they came back to Portland, I was frustrated by the amount of misunderstandings that kept happening between them. Neither one of them would trust the other, which I know happens, but hello at least give them a chance. I will say I enjoyed the ending, including the epilogue. Plus the audio was narrated by Muffy Newtown & Jacob Morgan, which are both perfection!!!

When 25-year-old Kat is dragged to a porn convention by her best friend, she's both embarrassed and nervous. The last thing she ever expects is to meet someone who makes her laugh like no other. This is a story about acceptance and friendship and a love born out of the most unexpected of places.

With a famous NHL player for a stepbrother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation of many a hockey star. So of course she isn't interested in legendary team captain Alex Waters or his pretty, beat-up face and rock-hard six-pack abs. But when Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet's misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes much more than just a hot body with the face to match.

I would probably rate this one closer to 3.5 stars.

I know, I know, this book was super hot and steamy, which I definitely don't disagree with. And yes Alex was an amazingly swoon worthy hero and Violet was a goofy fun loving heroine. But, and it's a BIG but, the story just dragged on. I know since it's the first book, it's kinda setting up the other books story lines and introducing characters for those future books, but it was just too looooong. And there was a lot of they are together, then not together, then they make up, over and over. And also what is with her stinky neighbor and the flirty flower delivery guy?! Were they both there just to show how much all guys wanted Violet??? I was kind of confused.

I listened to the audio version, narrated by Muffy Newtown and Nathan Everett. And while Muffy Newtown was awesome as always, Nathan Everett's accent was sort of an odd mixture of Canadian and English/Irish

Some days, all you need is a message from a stranger. Ruby Santos knew exactly what she was getting herself into when she signed up to write a soldier overseas. The guidelines were simple: one letter or email a week for the length of his or her deployment. Care packages were optional. Been there, done that. She thought she knew what to expect. What she didn't count on was falling in love with the guy.
