We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was “ScreenGod”, and she was “Montana”, but of course those weren’t our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind. Logging in at night and talking to her was my escape - my sanctuary. Her real name was Eden, I’d soon come to find out. From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed. She was an addiction. At first, we knew nothing about each other’s real identities...and she was adamant that we keep things that way.

Sweet and just a little bit sexy, I loved this addictive, predictable read. Even though I’ve said it’s predictable, because yes, I knew how it was going to end, it still had a few surprises thrown in along the way. Following super sexy, super wealthy Hollywood business man Ryder ‘ScreenGod’ McNamara as he finds himself addicted to an online chat room and the girl who receives payment in exchange for showing her body. Eden, aka Montana, is much more than her online persona. Holding down two jobs whilst dealing with her everyday life isn’t easy, but when ScreenGod becomes more than just another punter in the chat room hope blossoms even though she knows it’s impossible for anything ‘more’. I loved both Ryder and Eden, no lies, no games, just truths, yes hidden behind their online personas to begin with, well and truly a good old fashioned love story. Andi Arndt and Sebastian York, say no more. A match made in heaven.

A wonderful young adult read following 17 year old Rachel as she is thrown into a new life with a rockstar father she doesn’t know. As well as dealing with the death of her mother and the lack of a relationship with her father she also has to deal with all the drama that comes with being a teenage girl - school, college, friendships, and of course boys. Told entirely from Rachel’s perspective I was totally inside her mindset, I understood her fears, her desires and her mistakes. Her friendships are strong, which says a lot about her character. The relationship between her and her father is strained to say the least, but I so admired Frederick for finally manning up and trying to become the father she deserved. An emotional read that kept me engrossed from the first chapter. A beautiful coming of age drama with a far from perfect father who it seems is also dealing with becoming an adult, proving that it’s never too late to do the right thing. A perfect five star read with a couple of added twists. The audio version of this book proved to be one of my favourites so far this year. Kate Rudd is a new narrator to me and one I will definitely be looking out for in future audios. Five stars across the board.

Tijan wowed me again! A complete 180 on her previous writing, we follow Hollywood bad boy Brody Asher as he moves from LA to film on location in Montana. Still suffering from the tragic loss of his brother Brody is hitting the bottle every night, until that is, he comes face to face with a ghost. Not a real ghost, but Morgan Kellerman may just as well be a ghost, no one ever sees her, she spends her days and nights with a herd of wild horses. Brody and Morgan have an instant connection, a connection that Morgan’s stepbrother appears to be jealous of. Things are not always as they appear though. Brilliantly written in dual POV, with a couple of additions, I really connected with all the characters. Of course I instantly fell in love with Brody, who wouldn’t? However, more unusual for me, I fell in love with Morgan, her strength, her love of the wild, and her pure outlook on life. Personally, I’ve never been into horses and riding, but I still understood the bond that Morgan had with Shiloh and I’ve got to say I envied it. A wonderful storyline with some unexpected twists. I was hooked from the first chapter. I’ve got to say that this is one of my favourite audio books ever (I know that’s a huge statement, but it’s so true). Sebastian York at his very best, what a perfect Brody he turned out to be. A full five stars from me.

Through the haze of vodka and self-loathing, Hazel Roundtree saw the poor creature lying in a ditch. One brown eye. One blue. Covered in mud and crying from pain, the puppy was desperately trying to free itself from a hopeless situation. She almost kept walking by. She had her own problems, and besides...no one had ever stopped to help her. Hazel had no idea the dog would be her beginning, her second chance, the miracle she never saw coming.

Oh my word. Not quite sure where to start. What a story! So many feels. Having read and loved the book, I was so looking forward to listening to the audio. Bahni Turpin is a new narrator to me, and I’ve got to say she nailed all the voices perfectly, even that of Atticus. I can’t imagine I t’s easy trying to portray a dog. A story of self discovery. A story with so many emotions. I swear I don’t think I’ve laughed out loud so much whilst listening to a book. Atticus was so so funny. There were some extremely emotional scenes and I did spend the last 10% of the audio in tears, yes, even though I knew what to expect, I was still a blubbering mess. What a wonderful heartfelt story, the narration complimented the book so well. Most definitely one of my favourite audios of 2018, I definitely got all the feels.

Songwriter Dylan McCoy has been burned. By her boyfriend she found in her bed...with someone else. By the contract she signed that obligates her to work with him until the songs for his new album are complete. By her agent when she asked Dylan to keep their breakup on the down-low. When she finds herself in Sunnyville, she refuses to let her new roommate burn her too. Still...a rebound has never looked so good.

I loved book 1 ‘Cuffed’, in this series, but hell if ‘Combust’ doesn’t leave Cuffed in the dust. A firm favourite and straight to number 1 in my sexiest heroes books, the cover is everything that Grady Malone is and more. I fell completely and utterly in love with firefighter Grady from the get-go, in fact I think I fell in love with him in ‘Cuffed’, what a fantastic family the Malones are. Apart from the whole ‘not wanting a serious relationship’ issue, he’s blooming perfect. Then along comes Dylan McCoy, fresh from a break up with her bad boy rock star boyfriend. I loved Dylan, I loved that she stuck up for herself, even when she was wavering in her decisions she came across as only human, not weak. The chemistry and honesty between Dylan and Grady was perfect, the story, even though predictable, was a wonderful feel good read with some emotional drama thrown in, I enjoyed it so much. The narration, need I say, was perfect. Two of my favourite narrators, they can do no wrong.

At the young age of 12, Kaydee Harrison wanted an adventure, to dream of far off places, and a pen pal seemed the perfect way to do that. She started writing to a girl in England only to have her address passed on to a boy named Duncan, and that moment changed her life. Ten years later, sharing thoughts and dreams through pen and paper has brought them closer than ever.

I received an audio review copy of this book via GoodReads from the author and I have to say the synopsis hooked me in. I loved the idea of pen pals from across the pond meeting and falling in love etc etc. The reality wasn’t quite as idealistic for me. I didn't really feel any passion between Kaydee or Duncan, I never felt invested in either of them as individuals either. Duncan came across as a completely pompous Brit and Kaydee didn't seem to have any backbone. Some of the references weren't correctly researched in my mind, examples being the implication that royalty attend Saturday night Theatre quite often, I go to the Theatre in London a LOT and not once have I seen royalty, it is not common practice. There was also a comment made by Duncan that he had set a cot up in his room to sleep on. I know that this is a common term in America, however a cot in the U.K. is used for babies to sleep in. It is not a word that a Brit would ever use. I know I'm being picky and I apologise, but these sort of things really niggle at me. The narrator worked well with the accents (again though I am not a fan of the whole plum in the mouth British accent, maybe that's a personal thing, I'm a Brit and I don't come across that accent often). The book as a whole didn't work for me I'm afraid.

You know that group of people in school that everyone fears? Popular. Beautiful. The in-crowd? That was my family. Kind of. We were above that group. We held court over everyone else. We were the best looking. We were the mysterious and elusive ones. Most of the girls wanted to (and did) date the guys, but they didn't want to be one of us. They couldn't be. They were our prey. We were the feared. But like every family, nothing is as it seems. That was my truth. Kellan was in his own league.

I loved this book. I forgot how much I loved paranormal. Tijan just reminded me with this standalone love story, because yes, it is a love story, amongst other things. Demons and messengers, good versus evil. The Bradons were a force to be reckoned with, siblings that backed each other up and protected one another. But all is not as it seems. Shay lives her life thinking she is something that she isn't, and believing that Kellan is her half sibling. He isn't, thankfully, because they are super hot together, and as soon as I realised they weren't related, I was rooting for them. Big time. Shay is part messenger and Kellan is part demon, yet they have a bond, they are soulmates and together they are strong. They need that strength to ward off all that is bad. Both demons and messengers are after their power, they must fight together to overcome evil. Along the way they meet some really interesting characters and as the plot thickens the threats increase. As I've come to expect from Tijan, this is beautifully written and I will soon be purchasing a hard copy to adorn my bookshelf. Highly recommend to all paranormal fans, and of course all Tijan fans.

I'm NHL defenseman Lance Romero, AKA Lance "Romance". I'm notorious for parties and excess. I have the most penalty minutes in the league. I get into the most fights. I take the most hits. I'm a player on and off the ice. I'm the one women with no inhibitions want. Not because I like the notoriety, but because I don't know how to be any other way. I have secrets. Ones I shared with the wrong person, and she used them against me. Sometimes she still does.

Book 5 in the Pucked series follows NHL bad boy Lance Romero who is known for his wild parties off the ice, and his fighting on the ice. Lance has so many issues, stemming from the death of his younger brother at a young age, to having to deal with a difficult mother who didn't treat him well. Add to that some serious issues with a really horrible ex, Tash, who for reasons unbeknownst to me (or even Lance for that matter) is a spiteful, mean, horrible person, who seems to want to ruin Lance and is not willing to let him go. When Lance meets Physiotherapist, Poppy, things start looking up for him, and he starts to believe that maybe he does deserve a little good in his life. My heart broke for Lance, who really didn't deserve the hand he was dealt. Luckily for him, Poppy was the perfect mix of kind, gentle and oh so understanding, not in a weak way either. We also get to see all the previous guys and their girls which I loved, it's always nice to see how they're all doing. Beautifully written in dual POV, I truly can't get enough of this series.

Smut sells. Michael Rourke learned this the hard way. Struggling to make ends meet as a mystery writer, he sold his soul - and his pride - as he pedaled sex and lust writing under the pen name Christoph Strong. No one knew he was the one behind the steamy stories on the best sellers lists. And he planned to keep it that way. Until he met her.

Well. No words. Told in dual POV this book is refreshing, it's funny, it's sexy, it's beautifully written and I loved it. Following mystery writer Michael Rourke, as he gets outed by his agent as Christoph Strong, romance writer "sextrodinaire" as he meets blogger Monica at a book signing. With so many lies (hidden truths) and secrets, nothing is as it seems, the only sure thing is their chemistry. As someone who is active in the Facebook pimping and blogging community I could so relate to this storyline. I read and loved this book when it came out in 2014 and I was lucky enough to receive an audible copy of this book from the narrator at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast." I need to say that single narration in a dual POV is not something I have come across before, but Joel Froomkin nailed it. Nothing about the audio version that I can complain about. Loved it.

Circe Quinn goes to sleep at home and wakes up in a corral filled with women wearing sacrificial virgin attire - and she is one of them. She soon finds out that she's not having a wild dream; she's living a frightening nightmare where she's been transported to a barren land populated by a primitive people, and in short order she's installed very unwillingly on a white throne of horns as their queen.

A full five stars from me! I was enchanted from the first chapter, the story completely drew me in. The writing was perfect, I could envision the land, the tents, the warriors and the characters perfectly. I loved the sense of humour of both Lahn and Circe, I love that the are both proud and compassionate and I love the way they learn together. Such a perfectly matched couple. The story has intrigue, suspense, loyalty, love, friendship, betrayal, cruelty, heartache and a lot of sex. Suh Tunak is a savage land and as such there are some disturbing scenes, not a book for the faint hearted. That said I couldn't put this book down, it is my favourite Kirsten Ashley read by far. I loved it. The narration was amazing. Just perfect.
