Dr. Corbin Davis is a busy guy just trying to do his best as a single parent. He may be oblivious to a lot of things, but surely he would’ve noticed something as important as his 15-year-old son Grayson being bullied, right? And what the heck is nonbinary, and why hasn’t Gray shared this all-important part of himself with his own dad?

This book!! wow!! I laughed so much, It's strange they cover some tough situations and still I laughed OUT loud. Michael Pauley as always did a GREAT job with all the different voices and brought this story to life. I think this is one of his BEST narrating jobs yet. I like the way the story flows and never strays off topic or gets hard to follow. Book 1 is a hit, hopefully the rest of the series is as funny and covers more of the LGBTQ life style issues and life challenges for those who aren't out yet. You can use a different first name for every book but, Miss Hawke, your writing is spot on, as always!!

Marrying a stranger tops the list of things you should never do in Las Vegas, but I did it anyway. The entire night was my idea. I was the one who suggested a wake-up-with-a-tiger kind of night. Instead, I woke up with a ring on my finger and Vince Rossi in my bed. Vince was nothing like I thought he was and everything I never knew I needed. Suddenly I was falling head-over-heels in love with my accidental husband and the idea of ending this union was the last thing I wanted. I wanted forever. So what if we barely knew each other?

Let me just start by saying, Where was Jason Clarke the Whole Story... I Love Erin Mallon, and she does a great job at narrating the male/female parts But, Jason Clarke does the Epilogue!?!? The story is good but, if we could have had both POV it would have been easier to listen to the babble that ran all around Payton's mind.... Holy!! Wow!!! The nonse she thought.... I'd say this book is worth a listen but remember, it's a lot of brain babble, not sure if I'll ever listen to it twice but, I did laugh out loud a lot...

The world’s sexiest firefighter is about to get a second chance with the virgin next door.... He’s bossy, arrogant, and so ridiculously hot that he should come with a warning label and a pair of flame-retardant coveralls. He’s also the boy who broke my heart when we were in high school. I want to move in next door to Ryan O’Dell the way I want to be the virgin gamer geek suddenly in charge of running my sister’s sex-toy factory. Too bad both are written in my stars.

Cute story!!! the very best part is the racoons epilogue, so funny. a little bit of romance, laughs and a mystery.... Jacob Morgan always gets my vote, he's awesome!!! Virginia Rose was a different story, first time hearing her read. She did the female parts good but, not a fan of her male voice. The wacky racoon and a whole lot of dildo talk made the story worth a listen....

I enjoyed this book and both narrators. it's a great start to a new series for me. I love the instant attraction and the pull you can feel. instant Love, It's what makes a great love story. The back story of both the male and female make this an all around good listen. Scary at times and all sunshine in the end... worth the credit …..

this was a really good story, or atleast it could have been. I wish some of these books were duel narrated, this female narrator had NO business reading the male part. It totally ruined this book for me. the story was would have been so much better, I would have given 5 stars if she haden't read the male parts..... If this had been book one in the series, I wouldn't have bought the other two.....

It began with his electric touch and a hurricane of frenzied passion that ravaged my body, my mind, my soul...my entire life. We both knew where the line was, yet we crossed it because it was the only way we could be close to one another. We couldn't keep away from each other, and one lust-filled encounter after another birthed a connection, which turned into so much more. Now, I'm head over heels for my best friend's father.

Zane Phillips mistook me for his dog walker. It shouldn’t surprise me that the man with a suit more expensive than my rent would assume that I was there to serve him. The positive? I put him in his place. The negative? I missed my job interview because of it. Now I find out he’s a rich Australian entrepreneur, and he wants to make up for tanking my interview. Yes, he’s impossibly hot - but he’s also an arrogant jackass - so...no thanks. But after a little white lie I tell spirals out of control, I’m somehow offered the chance to play Zane’s girlfriend to help promote his new dating website....

The story is alright, kinda expected everything that happened. I'm really not sure why Erin Mallon didn't just narrate the whole story. She read more than half the book and did an outstanding job with the male voice. I was more disappointed with Rupert Channing doing the male/female voices when he did his chapters.... I expected more out of this book being that it's K. Bromberg.

I hired her to be my girlfriend. To fix my reputation. To save my career. It's not that I don't want a girlfriend. I do. I want it all. Wife, kids, side-by-side burial plots. The problem is - I can't have any of it. So I've made myself untouchable. The quintessential bachelor of baseball. Because it's not worth the risk. Not even for someone I love. Especially not for someone I love. We made the arrangements. We agreed to a contract. It's iron clad. No sex. No love. No future.

this may be book three but, its a #1 for sure. the entire series is SO worth the credit or the $$. I love the way all the Characters are in all three books, Zachary Webber is One of the Top Male Voices and along with Erin Mallon, they bring the story to Life... A few twists and turns keep you wondering but, in the End its Happily Ever After..... I will For Sure read this series again and Again.

What happens when a group of tough vigilantes meets up with a big-hearted family with boundary issues? Reese: It’s supposed to be an easy job. You know, the kind you get after you’ve been gone a while and the boss is unsure of how capable you still are? But then there’s a mugging, an abduction, two thugs, and a blackmail scheme. And smack-dab in the middle of it is a beautiful lost soul who needs me. The scared, young gamer-geek pushes all my protective buttons and awakens something inside me that’s ready to dive right in and inhale the man.

when its Made Marian and Michael Pauley, its a hit. Another great Made Marian story told by Michael Pauley. So glad all the usual fun and games of the entire Marian clan are once again brought together, its a super cross over story, Kennedy/Lennox/Pauley and the Marians, they just keep bringing us back for more.....

He calls himself Spider. I just knew him as the sinfully gorgeous guy with eyes of fire that fate sat next to me on the airplane. I didn’t know who he really was...British rock star...my stepbrother. He kissed me because he thought we’d never see each other again. We would. Everyone warned me about him. They told me he was ruthless and cold and screwed up. They said he’d leave me with a hole in my heart. Maybe I should have listened. Maybe I should have built up a fortress to keep him out. But I crumbled instead.
