But my past, my fraudulent prince, just won't let me go.

I wish this book would have come with a warning actually - the book is tough to get through. I'm only able to listen to a couple of chapters at a time - and of course with the subject matter the plot and pace make complete sense. It doesn't make it any easier to listen to. I wish I hadn't wasted a credit on it now that I'm almost done but at this point I'm determined to listen to the whole thing at least once, even if afterwards I shelve it and never listen to it again. Unfortunately for me the credit was kind of wasted here but it *is* a powerful book. Just a bit too dark for my tastes. You've been warned.

Trying to put past hurts behind you is hard when your ex is a fool, but buoyed by child support and alimony, Jo Walker is moving forward with her life, pursuing a career, raising her little girl, and trying to live in peace. She believes she has all the bases covered in her world. But what about her heart?    Rap legend Everett "Big South" McClain is divorced, too, knows all about failed relationships, and has relegated his love life to casual connections rather than pursuing something real. That is, until he lays eyes on Jo.

Amazing book - I'm now officially a fan of the author as well as the narrators. I loved the characters and the plot and the depth of the emotions portrayed. This was by far so worth the credit it's not even funny. So glad I took a chance on this book - can't wait to experience more!!! Ten stars.

Concerned that technology is about to chase mythological creatures out into the open (how long can Sasquatch stay hidden from Google maps?), the League for Interspecies Cooperation is sending Jillian to Louisiana on a fact-finding mission. While the League hopes to hold on to secrecy for a little bit longer, they're preparing for the worst in terms of human reactions. They need a plan, so they look to Mystic Bayou, a tiny town hidden in the swamp where humans and supernatural residents have been living in harmony for generations.

So I've hesitated to listen to this book - I saw the reviews and the Audible spotlight review and I love love love these narrators but I just couldn't bring myself to listen. Now I'm SO glad I did. It was an amazing listen - the realistic portrayal of the most unrealistic paranormal things made this a fun one and it was so well written that I was sucked in after only 10 minutes. I definitely recommend this as a jumping start for the shifter category - now I'm *HOOKED*. Love love love this one. GIve it a shot!

A stranger online. Dark hair and even darker eyes that knew my dirty desires before I did. A fantasy that should never be spoken. But he pulled the confession from me. And now he's coming for me. Rough. Dirty. Dangerous. It's supposed to be one night to get me off and make me forget. He'll make me his and I'll pretend I don't want him to. I'll run and he'll chase. Because I asked him for this. I begged him for this. Tonight, in the darkness, he's the hunter. And I'm the bait.

The twists were as interesting as they were predictable. Of course the a-hole bad boy with a hidden hurting heart begging to love is the irresistible secret half brother of the charming alternative love interest who is WAY too good for the main character. Honestly I don't know why the male characters bother with her. Other than her looks the author didn't lend much else to the character - certainly no depth other than omg he's so hot I want him but oh no his brother is such a great guy. PASS.

The story has a feeling like you're stepping into a complete world and you're trying to put the pieces together as you go - like you missed something. I felt like I entered a series mid season, not like this was an intro book to a new series. Off putting. Otherwise great concept for a novel, just not well thought out.

Manwhore. That's what the board of directors - and the tabloids - think of billionaire bachelor Reese Crane. Ordinarily he couldn't care less, but his playboy past is preventing the board from naming him CEO of Crane Hotels. Nothing - and no one - will keep him from his life's legacy. They want a settled man to lead the company? Then that's exactly what he'll give them.

I understand a definite need for conflict early in a plotline to drive the rest of the narrative but the nasaly tone of the narrator to the "He's so hot but what a d-bag but he's SOooo hot" plotline at the beginning tore me to pieces. Couldn't finish the first chapter. Skipping didn't help, just going to return.

Romance has never been actress Chloe Daschle’s forte—in life or on screen. But everyone knows who to call for a convincing death scene...and it might be killing her career. When Chloe is given a peek at the script for an epic love story, she decides to take her destiny into her own hands and request an audition for the lead female role, Esther Kingsley. The compelling tale, inspired by family lore and a one-page letter from the colonial ancestor of scriptwriter Jesse Gates, just might break her out of this career-crippling rut. Jesse would rather write about romance than live through it after his past relationship ended in disaster. But once on-set together, the chemistry between Jesse and his leading lady is hard to deny.

Can I just say I made it to an hour and 45 mins left before the main character turned into such a raging B I had to stop the story. A character can be humanized without alienating an audience and unfortunately the author missed the mark this time. Some faults can be charming and add a level of depth that draw someone in, but a cruel woman to such a kind main man character was just unnecessary and a huge let down and had me hoping the happy ending was the man moving on to someone else entirely. Don’t waste your time with this one.
