I'm stuck with Reilly and figuring out how to control my power, which is starting to feel more like a curse. I never expected to be working with JHAPI. I'm still not sure I can trust them, particularly Zachary's longtime co-worker who won't stop glaring at me. And I'm not sure Zachary has forgiven me at all. To make matters worse, I can't get rid of the welts on my arms, and I'm starting to see things I shouldn't. Despite my reservations about JHAPI, they seem to have a solid plan to hit the NWR in a way could shut them down for good.

The third installment of this series has Olivia facing many challenges brought about by her new magic. Her powers continue to grow and keeping her secret is harder and harder. The NWR plots new attacks with possible devestating consequences and Olivia needs to tread carefully so as not to put herself and others in danger.
This mix of super-naturals makes for a fun and exciting story that keeps you on your toes.

The narration is, a usual for Schroeder, superb and lifts the story to another level

Against all odds, I’ve snagged myself a spot at the elite Undercover Protectorate. It’s basically a supernatural Scotland Yard, but in a castle. A dream come true. All I have to do is make it through their academy. No big deal. Except that I’m a magical nightmare - a supernatural with a strange brand of unknown dragon magic. When the Undercover Protectorate is attacked by a dark curse, it falls on me to solve the case - and save the castle.

Gypsy - Lucian West isn’t husband material. He's a stiff in a suit. Granted a hot one, but still. He’s one of the most hated men in America. An arrogant asshole. A ruthless attorney. He gets what he wants in the courtroom, and outside of it. Now, he wants me. For reasons I can’t fathom, he’s determined to make me his wife. He makes it clear he’s not above blackmailing me to put a ring on my finger. The man might be richer than sin with devilish good looks, but hell will freeze over before I ever give my heart to him.

so, this book ... at first i wasn't sure about it due to a theme that makes me uncomfortable... but ... the book set its hooks into me and kept me on toes till the very end. The first reservations that I had, now just seem silly. It's a lovely book.
The narrators did a superb job as always and have made this book come alive.

All magic has a price, and I'm paying it. My actions have attracted the kind of attention I've tried my whole life to avoid. Now, a dangerous vampire shows up at my house, uninvited, with an offer I can't refuse. He claims to have information on my mother, someone I've long believed to be dead. But his price for that information means agreeing to work with him to discover the reason behind the NWR's attack. I find myself getting drawn further and further into his games that risk all my secrets.

OMG! I can't believe it, but I like this second part even more than the first! The story in this part continues in an exciting web of new characters and information about Olivia's past and new exciting magic she uncovers.
Laurel Schroeder is as amazing as always and a joy to listen to.

You might be asking yourself why I’m waving an inflatable penis in the air and screaming at the top of my lungs. If I took time to explain, Declan Moss would get hit by a bus. Let me back up. I didn’t ask for this. I was perfectly happy - and perfectly sane - before I stumbled into the role of Declan’s guardian angel. It was a thankless job until the moment that my panties dropped and his delicious smirk found his way in between my thighs. Hello, toe-curling ecstasy. Good-bye, professional boundaries. And suddenly, there’s a new danger to avoid: the falling of my heart.

in general i like books by Alessandra, however this one was off and i am still not sure whether i wasnt feeling the book or narration done. i was really not happy with the women narration as it made me anoyed and i think the plus was the mans narration and i am thinking this book may have been good if i would be reading it...well i just dont know. at the end the last third of the book was really good and the story made sense but in all honesty cannot recommend this one

I've had many moments in my lifetime, moments that changed me, challenged me. Moments that scared me and engulfed me. However, the biggest ones - the most heartbreaking and breathtaking ones - all included him. I was 10 years old when I lost my voice. A piece of me was stolen away, and the only person who could truly hear my silence was Brooks Griffin. He was the light during my dark days, the promise of tomorrow, until tragedy found him. Tragedy that eventually drowned him in a sea of memories.

In a world of suppressed magic, I’m an Unknown. Deadly power, little control. I’m only alive because I pay a blood sorcerer to keep me hidden. But when he comes to collect on the debt I can’t pay, one of his goons slams me with a deadly curse. Suddenly, I’m out of options and out of time. When I’m given a rare chance to join the secretive Undercover Protectorate and train at their academy to become an investigator, I have a way to hunt the cure for the curse.

This is a wonderful new book by Linsey Hall with Bree in the spotlight. There is a big change of scenery for the two sisters as they leave Death Valley behind to work with some awesome (and really hot) supernaturals.
Laurel Schroeder's performance is as usually superb, as she tackles different accents and characters as noone else.

a great listen for all fantasy loveres out there.

She started from perfect. A star who shone brighter than the rest. But then fate took it all away. Now she's broken. A beautiful song with a fractured beat. But I'm still on the rise. Chasing a dream that she's already left behind. If I'm lucky, I can find my redemption in the spotlight. Destiny brought us together. Put her in my path. It started with a road trip. But somewhere along the line, it became a journey from here to there. Maybe she can help me. Maybe we can help each other. Maybe music is enough. Maybe. Every story deserves a soundtrack. And ours is epic.

Well this book was a lovely surprise. Logan is everything but not what you expect reading the previous book Missing from Me. He is tender, sweet and attentive and the way he reads Tori and how they evolve together. The journey they taken on from the rain incident, the road trips, the connection between them it all builds up perfectly to explode at the end.
The narration is spot on, and the voice of Willow evolves from book Missing from Me to this book perfectly and you can see how she grows and how her speech evolves despite her hearing problems.

Overall sweet book which can be also considered as book for this seasonal period around Christmas time  even if there is no snow and Christmas lights

Alyssa Wayne woke up with a start. She lay there holding her breath, listening intently to the quiet. After a tense moment, she let out her breath, relaxed, and was just about to turn over when she heard a soft scratching noise. The next sound she heard had her sitting straight up in bed. She was certain it was the click of the front door. She sat paralyzed with fear at the certainty that someone had just entered her apartment. She was equally certain it wasn’t her roommate.

so this is a new instalment in the Alexander ranch series and as all the rest, it doesnt disappoint. mystery, action and romance are all intertwined so that you just cant put it away. i absolutely love Jordan and Shane, so I was definitely on my toes as to how the story will go down, and i have a feeling this isnt over yet.
lela is one lucky woman and i seriously hope her fear of commitment doesnt hinder her relationship.

as for the narration, it was great, as one woudl expect from D.C.Cole.

all in all,this book is a fun read (listen, in my case) and i cannot wait for the next one

Cass Clereaux is good at two things: finding treasure and killing demons. Lying low is a close third - but not because she wants to be good at hiding. Cass is a FireSoul, one of the unlucky few to inherit a piece of the dragon's soul. On the surface, the perks are sweet - she has the power to find and steal any type of magical treasure, including the powers of other supernaturals. But it doesn't come without a price - stealing powers requires that she kill, and others would destroy her if they discover what she is.

this fastpaced fantasy is superb for all who love magic. it contains everything - magic, romance, adventure, mystery ... the fact that it is written by an actual archeologist just makes some of historical situations in the book much more interesting.
as far as narration goes ... what can i say? Laurel Schroeder blew it out of the park once again. how she changes voices and dialects with evrry character is absolutely amazing and makes even male voices completely believable. she is one of the best narrators out there.
