I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, and found it very entertaining. One strike of lightning or one moment in the wrong place can change your life forever, as Ethan discovers . His very normal life is turned upside down and his goals change drastically as he learns to control his new powers. This tale is filled with interesting characters, suspense, lots of action and some humour, making it very enjoyable. I wasn't expecting it to end the way it did, so I'm looking forward to Book 2.

When the sheriff is murdered, his son is asked to take his place. Bobby Trent is a semi-retired rodeo cowboy and the son of a highly respected law officer. When his father, the sheriff, is murdered, Trent is asked to fulfill the remaining months of his term in office. Sheriff Bobby Trent; nobody would have guessed it, but it should be an easy enough task; drink a little coffee, maybe lead a parade. Easy work until he is healthy enough to return to the circuit.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request, and have voluntarily left this review. It is great, it has all the important factors, interesting characters, suspense, and humour. Bobby Trent, the newly appointed sheriff, is a injured cowboy just filling in and a little over his head. Untrained, he has an unique method to his policing. When someone finds a body in the snow, Bobby has his work cut out for him. The story will grab you and keep you listening long after you should have turned it off. Well worth the listen.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the narrator and found it very entertaining even though I don't usually listen to contemporary romance. Daniel's world starts to crumble after Jack foils the blackmailers efforts. They're is blackmail pictures and murder standing in his way to get his life back in order. The interesting cast of characters bring the story alive as Daniel tries to solve the mystery. My only complaint, it was too short.

The second book is just a much fun as the first. The new characters added to the story, are looking for a second chance in life. They find it in Daniel's new DIY show. It's not all smooth sailing though. It's a nice combination of romance, suspense and humour. I found myself chuckling as I drove down the road. It's well worth a listen.

The pressure of being a super - especially a teen super - can get to anyone, as Jim (aka Kid Sensation) has witnessed firsthand. Now he wonders if he himself might be succumbing to the strain in some way, as he can't shake the feeling that he is now being watched by some new stalker. Moreover, despite his wide slate of powers, he hasn't been able to discover a single clue to substantiate the existence of this potential new enemy, making him wonder if it's all in his head.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, and found it very entertaining. Life is always difficult as teenager, but add being a superhero and having the world to save, it becomes stressful to say the least. With a very interesting plot, developed around very unique characters this story moves along a good pace, and suddenly it's over. With just the right amount of suspense, action and humour makes it well worth the listen.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the narrator and found it uplifting. Destiny, a widow, raising her daughter with the help of her mother and brother is forced to realize her life is in a rut after forcing her best friend to go after her dream. But she still doesn't want to be forced into it. After making a new friend of a recent widower, she finds herself seriously thinking about going for it. The well written characters bring joy, humour and sadness to this very well written story. As the first story in this series, February flows so smoothly as it absorbs you. Once again author and narrator make an awesome team. Definitely looking forward to March.

So far I'm really enjoying this series. Time travel is always fun and when you add vampires, druids, betrayal and second chances, it just gets better. The characters are just getting better with each book. If you enjoy action filled books that are combined with suspense with some humour, you'll enjoy this series and find yourself listening way longer then you intended. I'm looking forward to book 4.

As fall settles into Sequoia, Zion just wishes her own life could settle down, but that is not in the cards for her.

I received a review copy from the author and this is my honest opinion. I purchased this collection when it first came out to read, I found all three very interesting and unique. I enjoyed them very much. My only complaint was the length, they were not nearly long enough. When I found out that they were now in audio format and the author was reading it herself. I had to listen. As I expected, it was even more enjoyable as an audiobook and the narration was very well done. Well worth a listen.
