Theo Taggart lost everything the night he died. His family, his beautiful Erin, and worst of all, he lost himself. A twisted doctor brought him back from the brink of death, but reprogrammed his identity to serve her will. Rescued by his brothers, he must fight to reclaim the man he was and the life, and love, that were stolen from him. Erin Argent thought she'd lost Theo forever. When he walked back into her life, it was nothing short of a miracle. Months of torture at the hands of Dr. Hope McDonald has done damage to Theo that may never be mended. He has no memory of her.

I love this series and the narrator did a great job bringing this story to life. I could not wait for Theo and Erin’s story and it was worth the wait. Theo and Erin had a lot of obstacles to overcome to reclaim their love and life together. What a thrilling ride and I’m looking forward to listening to more of this series in audiobooks.

Max has always been Anna‘s knight in shining armor, but Max has always seen her as a charming, and very sexy, little sister. Until Max's cold fiancee dumps him, Anna unloads another of her many conquests, and she invites him over for margaritas and Mexican food. Too much tequila, too much flirting, and too many years of fighting the attraction - Max loses control and has mind-blowing sex with Anna on her couch. And in her shower. And in her bed. When the sun rises the next morning, both of them must face that their night together is just the first of many.

The narrator did a really great job bringing Max & Anna’s story to life with the well-written words from Melissa Schroeder. It’s been a long time since I first read this book and I loved listening to the audiobook. The narrator captured the characters’ personalities perfectly and I even found myself smiling and chuckling when Chris arrived on scene and what happened. I cannot wait to listen to more of this author’s stories in audiobooks.

Oblivion lead singer Simon Kagan is used to being in the spotlight for his model good looks and his voice, not because of the epic ending to Oblivion's last show on their home turf in California. That unforgettable night rocked Oblivion in more ways than one, and now the journey back seems almost impossible. The only bright spot is Margo. Margo, the one woman he'd been sure would never be more than a hot ride in the dark. Margo, who would never be his. Except she is, for now.

Would you listen to Destroyed again? Why?

Yes, I would listen to this story again and again because Cari Quinn and Taryn Elliott wrote an awesome story and series. I really enjoyed Simon and Margo's story and Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross rocked as usual.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Even though Destroyed was Simon and Margo's story, my favorite of the series is Jazz. I just love her because she's been through so much in her young life but doesn't let things get her down. She loves and supports the people around her and her joy is infectious.

What about Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott ’s performance did you like?

I just love the way they narrate the story and they bring different emotions and personality to each of the characters. They bring the story and characters to life for me.

The scene where Simon collapsed and chaos erupted around him.

He soon realizes he wants more from her than blows and blood, and he's willing to hit below the belt to get it. He'll fight her, but if he wins, she spends the night in his bed. All night long, his rules. No tapping out.

What made the experience of listening to Shadowboxer: Tapped Out the most enjoyable?

I loved Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross' performance and how they bring the story and the characters of Trey and Mia alive.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the connection that Trey and Mia had with each other right from the beginning. I also enjoyed Mia's relationship with her sister Carly.

What does Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I enjoyed hearing the different emotions the characters were feeling and I felt right along with them. I would not have been able to if I was just reading the story.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were a few powerful moments such as when Trey was injured when fighting Costas and Mia realized how much he meant to her. She could not get to him fast enough to make sure he was ok. Another scene was when Mia told Trey about her past and what she had to endure to survive.

Any additional comments?

I highly recommend any audio books narrated by Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross. They are one of my favorites and they have made me fall in love with the stories even more.

Gray Duffy never thought he'd end up as the co-lead guitarist of Oblivion, one of the hottest rock bands in the country. Even better? He's sharing the experience with his best friend, Jazz. Since the day she'd showed up as his family's new foster kid, Gray has protected her. Loved her. And not just platonically either. After all these years of wanting her in his bed, he still doesn't know what it would be like to have her mouth on his.

Professional hockey player Rob D'Amico is confused when he's chosen to take part in a reading program for inner-city students. While athletes are role models, he tends toward the gregarious and playful side, rather than a studious bent. Despite the lack of funding plaguing her inner-city district, every day, kindergarten teacher Alaina Rossa ensures her students learn something to prepare them for life. At first, she's unsure how a hockey player will help her achieve that goal.
