I just realized how long this book is. When I first heard it it didn't seem long at all. I have heard it at least 3 or 4 times and it tends to go fast. I liked the book a lot. My favorite character was Christian the duke. He has a lot to overcome and he is very resourceful. He wants people to believe he is tough but in reality he is very tender hearted On the flip side we have Maddy. She views herself as "hollier than thou" due to her believes but she comes out to be annoying. Still the book is very good and I would recommend it to anyone.

Jake McKallister might have been a rock star, but he was no ordinary one. Surviving an unspeakable crime as a young teen had shaped him into a guarded workaholic, and he now lived his life trying to forget. If it hadn't been for music and the redemption he found through it, he might not have survived. Career success came easily for him. Personal connections did not.

This was a good love story. It was different. Jake went through a series of events prior to meeting Casey that defined him as a man and a lover. He was able to over come them because of Casey's love, patience and understanding. They are some very heart breaking moments in the story that bring tears to your eyes but they were also moments in which you can't help but laugh. This is a very good book and I would recommend it to my friends. Well worth the credit

I'm writing this letter because it's highly doubtful I'll ever garner the courage to say this to your face. So, here goes. We're totally wrong for each other. You're the proper single mum with a good head on your shoulders. I'm just the carefree British doctor passing through town and temporarily living in your converted garage until I head back to England. But here's the thing... for some bloody reason, I can't stop thinking about you in very inappropriate ways.

I went to listen to this book for the who knows what time (I have heard it many, many times) and the title and cover were changed! Two of the things that attracted me to the book were the name and the cover. Then I read the reviews and decided to go for it. I don't regret it one bit. This is a great story. Funny and interesting. Very lovable characters. The narration was great!

There are many rules a priest can't break. A priest cannot marry. A priest cannot abandon his flock. A priest cannot forsake his God. I've always been good at following rules. Until she came. Then I learned new rules.

I read a lot of the reviews for this book before I bought it. I dont understand some of them... It is a love story! A man meets the love of his love and has struggles with his belives and love for God. The performance really brought this struggle to live. There were moments in this book when you really felt both main characters pain. Its definetely a must listen to.

Nicholas Hamilton was not in the market for a wife and family until his parents made him an offer he couldn't refuse. If he married Moira, the girl who his philandering twin brother had gotten pregnant, they would give him the money for his software startup company. Marrying a woman and claiming her child as his seems a small price to pay for the business of his dreams ,until he finds himself attracted to his new wife.

I love this book. The story is really cute. The main characters are very likable. The only thing I would change is the way it was read. Maybe a different reader would have made it better. But even with this flaw I have listened to it many many times.

She takes my breath away; she is so beautifully damaged. Yes, I had broken her, ravished her life, and destroyed her happiness. I brought her to the ultimate despair. I was responsible for all the pain and suffering that now brought her to her knees in front of me. Broken. Hopeless. Reckless in her agony. She is a mirror of my own tortured soul. But what I took away I can give back, in ways she cannot even begin to imagine. She is everything right in all my wrongs.

I liked this story almost as much as the first. It was a little darker than Storm. The characters as usual were well developed and likable. As the story starts you want to dislike Vandal but he grows on you as he interacts with Tabitha. You get too know a little more about other members of the Valentine family.
This book is well worth the credit.

I've heard this book so many times I almost know it by heart. The Kid is such a great character, you have to love him. He has such a range of feelings and emotions. Aiden Snow gives him the depth of emotions the reader can't get from a book. His voice makes it so enjoyable to listen. The Kid is always looking out for the underdog. Tatum is also a good character. Some might not like Alexandra's voice but I think it suits her.
They make a great couple. I think it's the best in the series. MJ Fields and Chelsea
Camaron outdid themselves with this book. TWO THUMBS UP!

I have read some of the other reviews and I don't agree with most of them. Ok, the reader was not my favorite reader but I thought he did a good job. If you have ever tried reading and recording a book you would appreciate how hard it is to do. This reader was able to give every character his/her unique voice and personality. The story was also good. If you take the time check when the book was originally written (1989) you can relate better to what's going on and why the characters act as they do. I think it's good to go back to some of the older books and remember when life was a little less complicated

I have always been a bird. Caged by one prison or another when the only thing I ever wanted was to fly away. Sold. Beaten. Starved. Drugged. Nothing scares me anymore. Until him. He makes the numbness go away. He is hazardous to me. It has nothing to do with his mafia lifestyle, and everything to do with what he offers. A gilded prison. A retreat from everything that I once knew. The reality I have no desire to return to. He thinks he's caged me, but soon I'm going to fly.

Now, he has to save her again, but she's no longer some stranger, she's family, and he has no idea who or what he's up against. What he does know is that putting his family back together is the only acceptable outcome.

Overall

I liked this book a lot but I don't think there needed to be three books. It could have been two longer books like Bear' s and King's story. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed all 7 books in the series and had to get the last two in print because I could barely wait for the audio. So yes I would highly recommend this series because it's iinteresting a d funny. Good character development and a good plot.
