"Overture" by Skye Warren is freaking HOT, SIZZLING, STEAMY, I just can't think of any other words that can describe what this audiobook did to my ears. Samantha and Liam were the taboo of all relationships and yet I couldn't stop listening. Skye knocked it out the ballpark with the beginning novel of her trilogy. I can't wait until I get to the next installment; "Concerto."

Teddy Hamilton and Grace Grant were Liam and Samantha. They became the story, Seamless; No Flaws. I'm definitely recommending "Overture" those 18+... 5 Stars is not enough for this one!

I thought this was a very sweet HS/YA romance story. You have Ronnie, who has always felt her fellow classmates only seen her as a tomboy. So, for her Junior year of High School, she wanted to be seen as a young woman and have the chance to experience all the "1st" that she hasn't experienced yet as Veronica.

Veronica attends the high school on the other side of town, where no one knows her; she thought, until her best friend let her know that the guy she has been secretly crushing on; Drew, attends the school.

Veronica does everything she can to avoid Drew, while she does get noticed by many guys. Drew feels he knows Veronica but don't understand where from until his sister recognize her as Ronnie. Now, Drew was on a mission to show Ronnie/Veronica, that she is fine being just herself. That she can play sports and still be a "girly girl" all in one. Drew also let Ronnie know that he liked her and wanted to be with her.

This was the first book that I've read by Maggie Dallen and I really did enjoy it and the narrator's Lauren Fortgang and Josh Hurley, was my first time to hear them read. They did a really good job! I definitely would recommend this book to others.

This was my 1st book by Dana Mason and I loved it. She made her characters in the storyline so life-related, you could see it play out in front of you.

There's Mackenzie; he went by Mac, a radio personality known to be a playboy by his listeners. And then you have Kelly, a struggling dance student at the local college. Mac happened to see Kelly one day at a bus stop outside of a Starbucks where he was crying and he wanted to go to her and comfort her. Mac didn't understand why because these weren't normal actions of his, but still that's how he feeling then. Just when he was about to go to Kelly, he saw that an older woman went to her and after making eye contact with that woman Mac felt better.

Mac was still thinking about Kelly the whole following week, so he went to Starbucks again on that following Friday hoping to run into her and just when he thought he was out of luck, Mac spotted her sitting at a table and he managed to get the table right across from her. Mac introduced himself and asked her name, then out on a date for later that day. From that date the two of them ended up in Reno for the w/e because Mac was to host a comedy gig there.

Mac wanted to show Kelly a real good time after the show, so he had a limo and a close comedian friend of his was showing Kelly Reno a "Live" side of Reno. There's a lot of drinking and one thing led to another and the next morning they both woke up to learn they were married; to each other, WOW!!!

They head home and try to figure out; "What or Where do they go from this point?"
There's several landmines that keeps popping up that sets them back. Mac's sister does something unforgivable. A secret Mac should have shared in Reno with Kelly hurts them. Kelly has things going on in her life that she's embarrassed to share.

There's an "HEA," they find their way and I just love the road to they're ending.

Kelsey Navarro is the narrator and I am just in love with her. Kelsey does an Excellent Job with different voices and I just get excited when I find out that she's the narrator of a book I'm getting ready to listen to. This will not be my last book that I'll listen to by Dana Mason. Five Stars!!!

If I could ever give a higher review rating for a book or audiobook more than five stars this book would probably be the one. I would give a million stars to it; seriously. I absolutely, wholeheartedly, loved this book. I loved it so much that I had to listen to it twice; back to back. I just know that I can say with no hesitation I will be recommending this book to any and everyone that I know that's an avid book reader and audio listener they have to check out this book, it's that's good.

There were many lessons to learn in the story line.

1) What is true friendship?
2) How far should a friend go,
to prove how much of a
friend they are?
3) When should you follow your
heart, instead always putting
others feelings 1st?
4) How long do you wait before
you let someone know that
you care for them?

You do get your answers to these questions, and a lot more. There's definitely an "HEA" ending and we find out the meaning of friendship for sure.

The narrator's; two of my favorites, Teddy Hamilton and Mackenzie Cartwright did an AWESOME job in this audio. TWO THUMBS up to Kayley Loring; the author, you definitely have a winner with this book!!!

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a very touching love story of an older woman and the younger man.

It brought out the question that my be asked everyday; "If a woman is with a younger man, it's wrong or like taboo." "But, if an older man is with an younger woman, it seems to be more acceptable; even okay."

I enjoyed the narrators Melissa Moran and Joe Hempel. They both made it so real.

I was pulling for the couple in the book. I loved the way it all ended and I would recommend this book to others.

More Lies. More Secrets. More Pain. Possible New Relationship. New Friend... When will the three-way tumultuous relationship end? And, Who will be the loser? It's like a clock on the wall with a second hand, it goes around and around and around, and nobody knows when it will stop.

I couldn't stop listening until I got to the end of this book. Now, I have to wait for, "Turn To Dust: Book, 3." Karen Lynn, definitely has me on the edge of my seat waiting for it.
I want to give Claire Riley much praise for her narration for Book 1 & Book 2.

This was my 1st book from Karen Lynn, my daughter recommended her work to me.

"A War of Hearts," was every bit of what the title stated it would been. I think it was a war of one's soul; definitely of Kris soul. I feel her best friends were trying to give her the best advice, but she really didn't want it.
Logan; Kris husband, is a freaky nut job. He's the one I felt made the story. He was conniving, he was Satan walking on Earth. He knew how to play Kris. He knew how to sway her his way when he wanted to. Logan knew she was weak and he loved to play against her weak-side.

Jake; the boyfriend, knew all these things about Kris to, but I don't think he used her weakness against her, but tried to build Kris up. Tried to show her the strength she had inside if she would just believed.
The narration was GREAT!!!

Logan has two secrets.
Kris is keeping one too.
Jake has been lied to.
I'm on the edge of my seat with desperation for, "Sea of Smoke: Book 2" where the psychotic series continues...

"Torn: Book 2, in the Dark Legacy," ended up being as cold, calculating, and more ruthless than "Taken, Book 1" could have ever been.
The Scafoni and Willow families generational curse that dated back to the 14th century, harboured so much hatred that you could see it, read it, in each of the Scafoni brother's eyes when they would look at the Willow girl.
She was theirs to break anyway they saw fit. If she wouldn't obey, then she was punished how they saw fit.
This way of life for her was to last three years; a year with each Scafoni brother, in pecking order.
Something was going wrong; seriously wrong, with this generation. It was causing a rift amongst the Scafoni brothers. Pitying brother against brother. hidden secrets where now being revealed. A daughter learns the truth about her own family. And the worst taboo, she falls in love with one of her captives.
Yes, this series is some serious dark erotic romance, and may not be your cup of tea. But for those of you who can really sink yourself into it, this series is one you need to listen to.
The narrators; Michael Pauley and Mackenzie Cartwright, really draws you in. They both made it so real.
Natasha Knight has rose to a spot in my top five favorite authors.

Another Good Continuous of the Series!!!

Well, Catherine Bybee hit another 'Home Run' with: "Taken by Tuesday, Book Five" of her Weekday Brides Series.
It had proven to be an AWESOME CONTINUANCE to the series.
I really liked this storyline. There was an immediate attraction between them both; added with the boy chasing the girl I found that so cute!
Tanya Eby is doing a great job when it comes to the narration. Onwards to: "Seduced by Sunday, Book 6" in the Series.

Loved It!!!

I justed LOVED this book. It's my first book to read by Natasha Knight, but I'm sure it won't be my last. I give applause to both narrators for their fantastic voices.

I was captivated right at the prologue. The thought of knowing on your 21st birthday your life will possibly change for 3 years, and there's nothing you can do about it. You wouldn't see or be able to talk with any of your family during this time.
You will become someone's sexual slave.

The Scafoni and Willow families have history, hidden secrets; generational curse of human sacrifice, that has bind them together for many years.

This very dark erotic romance will have you intrigued, enticed, at the edge of your seat.

There came a time where the heroine; Helena, has a brief moment when she starts to question the possibility if she can really trust Sebastian or accept everything he says to her is a lie.
The sexual brutality that is thrush against her isn't love, he's the Abuser; not her lover, she can't allow herself to have feelings for this man.

I just couldn't put kindle down. I couldn't stop it. I couldn't even put it on pause, because I wanted to know; no,No, I needed to know how this all would end. But, there wasn't an end, there was a cliffhanger...
