So you may ask, who is Adam Connor? He is the recently divorced, Academy Award-winning actor who just moved in next door with his kid. He also happens to be an exquisite male specimen and the most infuriating sly bastard I've ever come across. While I was being thoughtful by not breaking and entering, and was actually considering going over to offer him a shoulder to cry on (you know, because of his divorce), instead he had me thrown in jail after a small incident. Jail, people!

I was looking to find a book that interested me and I saw the cover. Read the summary and then went on looking but was still curious. I hadn't heard of the author before, but ended up borrowing it. What a choice! It was engaging, sassy, swallow your tongue hot, realistic.

Newely divorced Adam moves next door to Olive and recently broken up crazy as hell Lucy moves in with her. Post breakup party consists of the two getting drunk together and endind with them climbing a ladder to sneak a peak at Adam. Olivia gets busted by her hubby Jason. Just that quickly Lucy becomes obsessed with Adam an his son Aidan. Lucy gets busted by Adam the day Olivia and Jason return from a week long trip.

That is just the beginning of Lucy confusing and twisting up Adam. The friendship between Lucy and Olive or mommy as Lucy referred to her was shocking, funny as hell, and so damn amusing your lips will twitch all the time.


Ella did a fantastic job and the narrators,
Sebastion and Lidia, brought the story alive. This is a definite 5 star book and listen and very well worth a credit.

Thirty days ago, my boss, Mr. Wolf of Wall Street, came to me with an offer I couldn't refuse: Sign my name on the dotted line and pretend to be his fiancée for one month. If I agreed, he would let me out of my employment contract with a "very generous" severance package. The rules were pretty simple: No intimate kissing, no actual sex. Just pretend to love each other for the press, even though I've secretly wanted to knock that sexy smirk off his face since the first day we met.

This is the first story I've listened to by this author and narrator. I read the summary and it sounded interesting.This was a great listen. Some parts of the plot are easily figured out and you want to see how they actually played, but others were a surprise. All in all a great sound story with character and world building all well formed. Abby did a great job. A couple of times I was annoyed at the narration, but you could distinctly recognize the male and female roles. You were able to feel the intensity when the plot was ramping up by use of inflection, and speed. If there was a second story to this book, I would definitely add that to my listening list.

The name's Barrett Callahan. Yeah, that Barrett Callahan - the one the press dubbed "bare", after those naked sexting pictures surfaced. At 25, I was armed with an MBA from Harvard, an executive position at my father's Fortune 500 company, a penthouse, and a different piece of delectable eye candy in my bed every weekend. I had a life most men dreamed of. But then my father decided to run for president, and my playboy lifestyle became a liability to his campaign that was built on family values.

Concerned that technology is about to chase mythological creatures out into the open (how long can Sasquatch stay hidden from Google maps?), the League for Interspecies Cooperation is sending Jillian to Louisiana on a fact-finding mission. While the League hopes to hold on to secrecy for a little bit longer, they're preparing for the worst in terms of human reactions. They need a plan, so they look to Mystic Bayou, a tiny town hidden in the swamp where humans and supernatural residents have been living in harmony for generations.

Jake Weston and I met under a cloud of cliches: Boy meets girl. Boy charms girl. Boy screws girl. He was the sexiest, cockiest man I'd ever encountered, but I had no idea he was a senior pilot when we met. No idea we worked for the same airline, and he had secrets just like me.

This was a fantastic listen. The narrators nailed it and the author went above and beyond. The beginning shocked me with how raunchy it was with no prelude, but the grittiness smoothed out. It was so realistic in what happens in benefit relationship that it didn't even offend me. Both main characters Jake and Gillian were contradicting characters that grew into their relationship. I know some of the reviews say she was weak, and made her seem like a mouse, but I never felt that way about her. I always thought her a strong character that didn't like confrontations,but had no problems with it when it came to something that mattered.She twisted Jake up and down like a tilt-a-whirl ride and he never seemed to know what to do about it. You wonder why he's such as ass, but the next instance you fall in love with him again. The connection between the two was turbulent with fiery hot passion. But as you come to the end you understand and would react the same as he did. He has a rage inside him that was unceasing with reason. when it finished i wanted more. I wanted to know where things ended I felt like person on a cliff waiting to see if there would be a drop or not. Unfortunately I felt there was a drop because you were left with so many questions. If I give the questions then I'll spill the beans so definitely read or listen to this book.

I enjoyed the story immensely. I chose 5 stars for the story because I like the flow and story. The narration is a 1 maybe a 2 and explained further on in the review which gave an overall 3 star for the audio. This was picked up because I thought it would be different and light. It was that and more. It wasn't erotic, but something that brings dreams of being a princess with some reality. The main characters had heart and growth throughout creating a full bodied story. I wish I had this in a book format however. The narrator was horrible. Her voice was nice and pleasant but there were many errors from breaths and pauses to re-readings that were not edited out. It made me think I was reading out loud from and inexperienced reader. If the narration was edited I would have enjoyed this more. Before I condemn the narrator I will listen to another story she narrates and hopefully the things that made this a stop and go story will be corrected and it will be a smooth listen.

I've read the story before but wanted to hear the audio. This series is fun. Bossy alpha male that has no clue how to deal with River. River being a circus performer means she does all kinds of daring that a normal person would cringe at. River doesn't want to be bossed around and Torak has a hard time dealing with the vast differences of human women independence to women from the Kassis system who are very feminine. Overprotective alpha vs daring female who many times battle over misunderstandings from culture.

I loved the scene when Torak really pissed off River and was stuck to the wall from all her knifes. The sex scenes were very intense and wow what imagination Mrs. Smith has.
Mrs Cook did well with the narration but it was many times monotonous but still the story was entertaining so I personally had no issues.

This book was amazing. The world building was fantastic. It was descriptive with a variety of language and literacy to keep you engaged. A combination of English and Hungarian and the scenes changed. They were not just a repeat from previously read in the book. You could feel the depth of characters, their weaknesses, strengths, wants and desires. The playfulness, anger, frustration and confusion are clear. If you read the prequel you know where Pandora’s Box came from and it has a variety of names used. And it also explains how and why it was lost. Now the lords pay the consequences for the choices they made in their involvement. They have been bonded to a demon. This book occurred centuries/thousands of years after The Darkest Fire

Book 1 The Darkest Night is about Maddox and Ashlyn. Both are tormented and endure pain. Maddox Killed Pandora with 6 stabs of the blade into the stomach killing her and is cursed to repeat it nightly at midnight. Reyes has to kill him and Lucien has to escort him to Hell after. Torin spots Ashlyn on the monitors in the woods and sends Maddox after her to find out if she is a hunter or bait. After killing the 4 men that followed her he spots her and wants to kill her but can’t.

Ashlyn has the gift/curse of hearing anything that was said in a single spot no matter the time current or centuries before. She was raised in and institution after the age of 5 because she could not control it and her parents couldn’t or wouldn’t deal with it anymore and they wanted a normal life. So for the next 20 years she was initially imprisoned and then started to work for them. Telling the institution where abnormal beings were located and about them believing she was doing good for humanity. Then curiosity got the better of her and she wanted to meet the angels on the hill that she heard about. Then she meets Maddox and silence sweet silence occurs.

The entire story occurs in about a week and at the beginning I was interested and waiting to hear something familiar. But somehow when reading the series a few years back I never actually picked up the 1st book, so I was very pleased to have questions answered and I loved the story. Halfway through there was a glitch and music starting playing and they introduced the book which was annoying but within a few minutes that all stopped. There were several surprised that I was like HUN? What is important about that and them whammy at the end I was like damn I can’t believe I didn’t figure that out before? All in all it was a well-executed book and similar in a dark fashion like the black dagger brotherhood series.
Max continued to be an excellent narrator for the series with his sexy dark a sin voice. True there wasn’t much changes in his male voices but in reality I really different notice it. The writing and the vocal tone differences made it possible to tell the difference. This was an excellent find and glad to see that I can now listen to the LOTU instead of just reading about them. Great job Gina and Max!!

This is well worth a credit to enjoy over and over or if you’re not sure check it out under the romance package.

This is the prequel to Lords of the Underworld. I have read several reviews and yes in parts I agree with them. It's really is not a first book, but I wouldn't know where to put it in the series. It explains some historical information that may be wanted by some readers and not by others so it is a love it or hate it book. There is only one heavy sex scene and the rest of the book is very tame in comparison to the rest of the series in terms of action, romance, drama etc. It is a very short story and maybe later on in the series Garion and Kadance will be met again but I really don't know. I haven't read the series in about 4 years so I'm very behind.I personally appreciated the background story so I enjoyed the story.

The narrator was amazing I loved loved loved his voice. It was deep, smooth, and seductive like dark chocolate. He draws you in and seduces you. I will definitely mark him as a favorite to listen to again. He made you feel the story the highs lows and everything in between.
