All her life, Kensi has dreamed of being an alpha werewolf. The trouble is, she can’t shift - and no one must know. Her plan B? Offering her talents as a private eye to the Wild Pack. If she can locate their missing werewolf, they're bound to support her claim to lead. Stubborn and searing-hot Drake is assigned to be her guide.

Moon Promise is about a daughter of a werewolf king, unfortunately she is unable to shift. So Kensington now lives in Chicago and is a renowned P.I. When her father calls and asked her to go and help The Wild Pack find a young woman who has disappeared.
Kensington arrives and to keep her secret, she has to withstand the Alpha power when the men keep trying to influence her to their way of thinking.
This is an interesting tale as we see how Kenzie uses her skill to find Raven, while dealing with werewolf politics. Kenzie finds herself attracted to Drake one of the pack protectors.
This book has it all, mystery, murder, love and jealousy which caused all the trouble in the first place. I loved Drake and Kenzie together, it was the first time she could be herself. This is a great start to a new series which has all the right qualities Love, Jealousy, and all the ingredients for plenty of actions mentioned. I now have to start on Book Two when released.

When space freighter pilot Calen Macleef accidentally wins Larissa “Bit” Earnest in a lucky hand of poker, his main concern is what his gruff and uncompromising brother, Jack, will say about it. Jack Macleef is the captain of the ship in a world where space travel has only recently become the norm and space piracy abounds. Painful memories of prior abuse surface for Bit as she finds herself on a freighter full of rowdy, ungentlemanly merchant marines.

This is book one in a new series set in the future, when space travel is an everyday experience. Unfortunately for Bit an indentured servant life has been horrendous with all her previous owners, and now she has been won in a card by a young man Galen.
Suddenly she is on her way to a freighter spaceship filled with men. Fortunately Galen’s brother Jack is the captain and he can see how frightened she is. Bit is taken back when her room is found for her with a lock on the inside.
This is centered around Bit and how she reacts to only kindness that is shown to her. This is an interesting start to a new series in which there a battle and many insights to the members of the crew. A short listen at only 3hours 57mins but with plenty fitted in giving me a taste to look forward to book two.

Sam, a half-fae Void, is ostracized by her own people, much less the humans who control her home - the Illinois Mystical Reservation. Packed into the Reservation with vampires, werewolves, faes, and mages alike, Sam does her best to travel below the radar, but when her only friend asks for her help, she can’t say no. Her work to solve a fae’s murder brings her to the forefront of vampire politics, and changes her life forever.

This book introduces a world where all supernatural groups are now living in reservations controlled by the human government.
Our story is about a young women Samantha who has been ostracized by her own people the fae. Sam is a Void which she has no magical ability, but can drain others magic.This is Sam an introduction to the world and her life which isn’t very pleasant.
A good start to a new series that set the scene off the world Sam and her few friends live in. Narration is all from Sam's points of view, and felt more like someone reading rather than lots of different voices. I still enjoyed listening and look forward to book 2

When Isabella arrives at a hospital to continue her nurse training, all she hears is Dr Roman is a miracle worker and saves lives no one else could.
Roman notices Isabella straight away, and tries to keep his distance. Fortunately for us Dr Love fails and we have a hot romance between Isabella and Roman which soon becomes a serious relationship. This is an unusual book but I enjoyed every minute. This starts as an ordinary romance until Isabella discovers Roman is a werewolf.
When the local pack starts causing trouble in the Bayou, we have action and adventure. Working with Isabella, Henrietta a voodoo queen as they try to save all patients in the hospital.
I didn’t notice the narration, which is a compliment because I wasn’t pulled from the story once.
This review is about book two, where life is good for Roman and Isabella who have moved in together after all the upset at the of the last book. When they are kidnapped and turned over the Werewolf Council Headquarters. Once there they are separated and they send Roman off to hunt an ancient enemy to find a cure for the previous leader of the council while Isabella is held hostage . In this book we meet more of the supernatural community and Isabella holds her own while among the Werewolves.. I’ve really enjoyed these books and hope there are more In the future.

This is the first book in one of the most imaginative series I’ve read for a while, featuring Absidy a twenty year old student waiting for her family to meet for christmas break. When she finds out that her older sister has gone missing she is determined to find even if she is in black space.
Dressed as a teenage boy called Lewis she ends up as a trainee chief on a small ship with a small crew. Nothing goes right as the ship is haunted and its Absidy sees ghosts. So the adventure starts and takes directions you in directions you can’t imagine. This is a step in the future that is haunting and frightening at times. When Absidy went on board she never imagined she would have deal with Monsters around every corner. The only good thing as far Absidy knows is that Mase knows her secret, and soon they start getting hot and heavy. I'm not giving anything else away, I don't want to spoil it for anyone.I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this audiobook, it kept glued to my headphones.

Clem visit a tattoo parlor out to speak to the owner about a tattoo she has. When meets Ed the artist, she encounters nothing but hostility. Clem is amazed to finds out Ed is her ex and she broke his heart.

Clem has no memory of their relationship or any feelings. Ed is fantastic helping Clem even though she is different from before. The new Clem is more forthright and speaks her mind and is lovely and snarky. The story is told from Clem’s pov, and wonderfully done.

This book blew me away, Andi Arnt was fantastic as Clem, your pulled into the story and can’t stop listening. This is one seating listen, walking around with earphones all day. The love interest is sexy swoony Ed the absolute best book boyfriend. A five star listen. I loved it. This is an Audible Original, the book will be release later in the year.

Well this episode of the space trilogy is everything I wanted and more. Rhea founds out more about her family and her heritage. Rhea and her helpers are running out of time so save the outer verse from war. There is so much happening in this book it keeps you listening far into the night. Finally we get all the answers and even some a happy ending for some of the characters. 

The Narration was perfection Dawn is Rhea. As I always feel with audiobooks if I am in the world I’m listening too, I don’t notice the narration. I wasn’t pulled from this exciting story once, thank you Dawn!

The second book starts with non-stop action, with Reah getting caught and betrayed everywhere she goes. In the first book I found it hard to relate to Rhea in the beginning. In this book I felt more invested in the outcome.  In this book we find out more about the Inner Diverse. In this we find out so much more about the conspiracy to destroy some of the human colonies. As always I get all excited and on tenterhooks and then it finishes. I am now looking forward to  listening to the Book three to find out more. We have Reah somehow managing to escape all the traps she walked into. I hope we get a final resolution for Reah as her heart’s in the right place.

This is the first book in a new series and the first from this author for me. We follow the misadventures of Reah Hawke an Galactic Guardian, who is investigating mass murder of a Religious Sect. This is a long listen and you have concentrated at first to get the picture on Reah, the universe she inhabits. We follow Reah’s investigation with a tough and gruff EXTERIOR HIDES of things that have happened in her past that have haunted her ever since. The more you learn the more you want to KNOW. There is one concession when I finished there is book two to listen too.
The narration is addicting leaving you wanting more.

Well William Todd certainly has managed to recreate the feel of a Sherlock Holmes story. This being an audiobook of only 2hrs 38mins it’s a step into Victorian England with Holmes arriving in Keswick for a restful stay with Dr Watson. On arriving a murder has been committed, a headless corpse gives his holiday a bonus. Ben Werling narrates as Dr Watson and does a fine job holding my attention with this slice of life in Victorian England with a Sherlock Holmes Mystery.
