For years, Reese has hidden away in his home, refusing to venture out where he might have to face what reminds him of all that he's lost. When Ashton, a human thief, breaks into his home one night, he doesn't have a choice but to face the harsh truths of the world he's turned his back on. He knows he supports the society monsters of myth and lore built upon the backs of humans through his silence, but the new leaders don't tolerate sympathizers.

Loved this book, Reese and Ashton’s story grabs your interest from the very beginning and paints a vivid picture of the world they exist in. Exist- because up the moment they meet that is all the do. Finding each other allows them to find the possibility of so much more. The narrator is great for this series. Look forward to the next book.

When he agreed to take the fall for his pack leader's failed attempts to help the Rebellion, Jace knew he wouldn't live long enough to regret it. However, instead of the noble end he envisioned for himself, the werewolf finds himself at the mercy of a witch and his depraved games. How long can he cling to his pride and conviction that he can withstand anything his controlling new master can dish out? Now that supernatural beings have seized control of the world, life has become a struggle for the humans who once held power.

Read the book first and then listened to the audiobook. I enjoyed both because R. Phoenix can write dark kink like nobody's business. Hot kink too. Highly recommend! The narrator's interpretation of Liam's voice was a little weird but that's just me.

Read the book a while back and continued to fall in love with the series. Cade and Rafe find each other when Rafe tries to destroy the family he believes betrayed him as a child. Their attraction is intense and immediate. Sloane knocks it out of the park every time and I loved revisiting the Barretti series. Pauley’s narration was perfect as always.

Indy will do anything to prevent his mobster ex from finding him. Their last encounter left Indy recovering for months in the hospital, and, ever since, he's become an expert at hiding in plain sight.  Determined to stay under the radar, he takes on a new identity and moves from place to place, until he meets the man who breaks through all his defenses. Former Army Medic Noah came back damaged from his last tour in more than one way.

With his secret out and uncertainty behind him, Tad finds himself in this new, incredible place. A place where, finally, he can just be himself. Which means no more over-analyzing every feeling Scott stirs inside him. Because now, Tad has the confidence to act on them instead. To be with the guy that he's head over heels for in every imaginable way. In public. In private. Without any reservations. An internal freedom he never knew existed until Scott came and unlocked the door. Experience their story's epilogue installment, filled with playfulness and promise, laughter and love.

I read this book a year or two ago and loved it! Love Dom and Logan's journey to find the love they both need. Their chemistry is off the charts and Sloane is master at writing stories that make you FEEL every drop of emotion the characters experience. Michael Pauley is the best and brought the story to life. Highly recommend!

The last time Tad saw Scott, the ripped physical trainer left him with quite a lot to think about. And that's pretty much all Tad's been doing for nearly two weeks straight. At his wit's end, he seeks Scott out, voluntarily, on his own terms. Will the completely different setting offer what he's seeking - proof that their exchange's unexpected turn was just a random mishap? Hormones run amok and truly nothing more? Or will being in Scott's presence suggest something different?

Four years ago, Logan Mitchell walked into Tate's life and challenged him to see it differently. He dared Tate to try a kiss when normally he wouldn't have. He begged him to take a chance when he probably shouldn't have. But most importantly, he asked Tate to trust that he would love him, and he did. From that moment on, Tate realized exactly what his life had been missing - Logan.
