Anything a man can do, I can do it better. I’ve lived by that credo my entire life, and with my dangerous "job", it’s always been true. I’m a rich man’s kryptonite; I can pretend to desire you and then execute a plan to take all you own. My brothers and I live a dangerous lifestyle. Then in walks muscles, murky green eyes, and a cocky smile. August needs a place to stay, and he’s saved my kid brother’s life. Now, he’s a god to my brothers. Can he really be trusted? I'll put a bullet to his head if he proves my intuition is right.

Gregory Salinas does an amazing job with all the accents!
Natalia is on the run from her past. A man in Barbados wants her back after she got away. The things that happened in her past make her untrustworthy of anyone except her brothers. They steal to survive.
August has a job to do and it involves getting close to Natalia. He has no plans for a relationship. Not until he gets revenge. When the attraction between them heats up will they trust each other to not get hurt again? What about when Natalia finds out she is just a job to August?

This is such a suspenseful action filled listen and I recommend!

Gianpierre Romano is being dragged back to Italy by the one thing he can’t escape: family. The Romano fortune and name has followed him wherever he goes - but that only made the headstrong Italian more determined to strike out on his own. Now, he’s on the cusp of achieving international fame for an architectural project in the Middle East when he’s roped into reconstructing the foundation of his family’s resort. It’s a project that Gianpierre has the passion for, but not the time - not if he wants to make it to Dubai for the start date of his dream project.

Nate knelt beside the dead girl. This wasn't his first homicide, it wasn't even the first dead prostitute he'd investigated. It wasn't the first strangling death he'd been assigned to. But this one bothered him. Maybe it was her youth; she appeared to be in her early twenties. Maybe it was her looks, as death had yet to rob her of her beauty. Maybe she reminded him of his own daughter, Lizzie, who was only a few years younger. Maybe it was something else entirely.

I am so damn done with being the chubby doormat for my soon-to-be ex-fiancé. I changed myself for every man in my life. Except Gray--my bodyguard. Too bad he's totally not interested in getting his kink on with me. No, he's made it perfectly clear he's only here to protect me. We'll just see about that. Protect me from this, buddy. I'm going out on the town to find myself a good old-fashioned ménage.

This book was so steamy and hot from the get-go. Who doesn't love a hot, sexy Alpha bodyguard? Add a bunch of steamy dominant/submission menage scenes and you will be needing new panties. You will need multiple pairs listening to this book. It was so hot.

Rebound is about Angelina, a curvy rich girl who just dumped her cheating ex-fiance. The story starts with Angel on her way to a bar to pick up a rebound to help get revenge on her ex, Mark. Gray is her bodyguard who she has been in love with for quite some time but has made it perfectly clear he doesn't want her in the same way. He lies. He does he just doesn't want to be her rebound. He wants her to find herself and then come to him amongst other things. This starts off Angel's quest of finding herself and letting go of insecurities and who she thought she had to be due to society and the life she has grown up in. It does end in a cliffhanger and turns out this is book 1 of 3. I do recommend, especially the audio with Lacy Laurel using all the amazing voices for the different characters.

On the field and off the field, bartender Jeanine Jewell plays, collecting one-night stands like baseball cards. She doesn't need a man, except to curl her toes and make her scream. She's learned the hard way that love is about control and manipulation - and the last thing she can handle is letting herself be vulnerable, or having anyone discover her shameful secret. Scoring women is easy for catcher Kirk Kennedy - they don't call him "Catch and Release" for nothing. He never goes back for a repeat performance. Being traded to a new city is an opportunity for new adventures.

This is book 1 in the King Brothers series and it is amazing. Starring Jade and Camden we learn a little bit more about the King brothers. This story has the right mixture of steam, comedy and suspense. It is not a comedy but their banter does make you laugh out loud. Highly recommended this series.

Somewhere along the way, Katie adapted, doing exactly what she needed to do in order to survive. But Katie has secrets that even her closest friends don't know. Secrets she has worked hard to protect.
