Lea Lamb and Austin Wolf were young when they fell in love. They never imagined the future could hold anything other than together - forever. When Lea's father dies in a tragic fishing accident, she's crushed under the weight of her grief and catches a glimpse of another type of future, one she knows she's not strong enough to face. Austin is angry. For the past 15 years, he's believed the woman he loved with every ounce of his soul left him without so much as a backward glance.

Lea was always his little lamb and Austin was her big bad wolf. That was until tragedy struck Lea and she had to go away as she couldn't lose Austin the same way she lost her father. 15 years later Lea returns home with a heart full of loss and regret as she helps her mother dying of cancer. She still loves Austin but seeing him with another woman and him telling her he hates her, seems like more than she can bear. When Austin finds out the truth about what really happened will he forgive Lea, can Lea forgive herself? Wow! What can I say about this emotional journey? It was truly amazing and I loved every word. The story of loss and second chances always tugs my heart, but this story was so in depth and emotional that I was drawn in and never wanted to leave. Truly a love story that will stay with you for a long time. Highly recommend.

Wow! This book continues on from Surrender left off and it continues Gareth and Sloane's story but also the stories of all the Harris Clan. This was the perfect ending to this series and it made me want there to be another Harris brother or sister. In this book we see endings and beginnings but ultimately we get more romance and family. Amy Daws is an amazing author and it was bittersweet moment when this book ended. I have loved all these books and the London Lovers books, it is sad to see it all end. Definitely a must read book and Will M. Watt's narration is right on point and he brings all of the Harris brothers to life.

Pierce Lancaster is bad news. Spoiled. Entitled. Sexy as - he's exactly what I don't want in my life. What I don't need. I'm not the girl he knew before. I've changed. But he hasn't. He's trouble filled with empty promises. I've come too far to fall back. Yet I can't seem to stay away. I can't say no. I am addicted to Pierce Lancaster.

Wow! This book is one emotional rollercoaster ride that I didn't want to get off. Amazing story about two broken people that together they figure out that being broken isn't a bad thing. Bad boy Pierce Lancaster was all Lindsey ever wanted but he never say her, there was always another woman got to him first. When one drunken night turns into something more, she knows she can never let him in. He destroyed her heart once and it will never happen again. So when events drop Pierce right into Lindsey's world she knows she has to fortify her walls or Pierce will want in and destroy her and this time there will be no coming back. Amazing characters that I found myself loving from the first few pages. This story had me feeling every emotion and I had to break out my kleenex box too. Definitely highly recommend this book and author.

Tanner Harris has been busy shagging his way through the ladies of east London, but getting caught by the paparazzi buck-naked with his trouser snake in his hands means he's sowed his last wild oat. Dr. Belle Ryan once thought Tanner Harris was the perfect kind of bearded bad boy she needed to relieve a bit of stress after her intense job as a surgical fellow, but an icy cold rejection from London's sluttiest footballer puts the two at each other's throats.

Tanner has rejected Belle and she is hurt more than she knows by this rejection. So when a scandal causes them to have to pretend to be involved with each other it makes things tough on both of them. They fight each other and the attraction they feel.

I loved this book. Tanner is the perfect bad boy and Belle is such a strong and sassy woman. The story is one that will keep you enthralled and engaged. Belle and Tanner will burn up your kindle. Amy Daws is simply an amazing author and one I will read over and over again.

Will M. Watt and Charlotte Cole are perfect together for the narration. The dual narration is the best I have ever heard and every audio book should be done this way.

We followed Finley to London with her mate Leslie and in this book we follow Leslie story as the gorgeous Theo pursues her all over London. When Leslie roommate Frank decides she needs to do a cleanse to get better. She runs around London trying to find herself again all the while Theo seems to be everywhere. I loved this story, Theo is just so yummy and you are rooting for him all along. Amy Daws is easily becoming a favorite author of mine.

Gabby has been hurt badly before but she is determined to take care her son Sam and run her B&B. That is until sexy baseball player Rhys O'Shaughnessy enters her life. He is staying at the B&B to recover and get his pitching arm back. Sam worships him and they instantly create a bond, but nothing compared to the bond that she is forming with Rhys. Gabby wants him but can she take that leap again and not be hurt? I loved this story, I think more so than the first book. Kristen Proby really knows how to pull her readers into a story and leave them caring so deeply about the characters. I can't wait to see what the next book will bring.

Vi Harris tests every bit of my strength. She is my own personal challenge. She has the potential to make me weak at a time when I'm determined to show everyone just how bloody strong I am. Yet somehow, she doesn't see me as broken. She sees me as the man I'm fighting so hard to be. The man that I'm still struggling to see myself. But resisting her is proving to be even more difficult than my past.

I actually read the Harris Brothers books first (Challenge, Endurance & Keeper) and I wanted Vi's story so badly. She is the glue that has held the Harris family together. She has her hands full with four strong brothers and an stubborn father. Since her Mother's death she has been the rock that the men of her family has clung to, but what about her? Isn't she allowed to have happiness and love? When her dog Bruce finds her the man who could destroy and heal her heart all in one swoop, she doesn't know what to do. When the one man she falls for feels she deserves better and pushes her at every step to the point that he may push her away permanently. Vi and Hayden are amazing and I love, love, love this story. Well done Amy Daws you have done it again!!! Dual Narration was simply amazing!!!!
