Returning home for her father’s wedding was never going to be easy for Adele. If being sent away at 18 hadn’t been bad enough, the mess she left behind when she made a pass at her dad’s business partner sure was. Fifteen years older than her, Pete had been her crush for as long as she could remember. But she’d misread the situation - confusing friendliness for undying love. Awkward. Seven years on, things are different. Adele is no longer a kid, but all it takes is seeing him again to bring back all those old feelings.

Daisy Smith has spent 18 months of her life paying for a crime she didn't commit. Desperate to rebuild her life and show the system that she is responsible enough to care for her brother, she takes on the only job available to her - working as a maid at the Matis Estate. On day one of her new job, Daisy meets Kastor Matis, the only son of the owners and her new boss. The more time Daisy spends around Kas, she starts to see there might be more to him than just his cold, bastard ways. He may actually have a heart beating in that frozen chest of his.

As a love slave, I know everything about women. How to touch them, how to savor them, and, most of all, how to pleasure them. But when I was summoned to fulfill Grace Alexander's sexual fantasies, I found the first woman in history who saw me as a man with a tormented past. She alone bothered to take me out of the bedroom and into the world. She taught me to love again. But I was not born to love. I was cursed to walk eternity alone.

Better narrator!!

Has Fantasy Lover turned you off from other books in this genre?

If they are read by Carrington MacDufie

What didn’t you like about Carrington MacDuffie’s performance?

Over the top acting, accents. Hope she doesn't give up her day job, because she is BAD!!!

Being engaged to Alex Waters, team captain and the highest paid NHL player in the league, is awesome. How could it not be? In addition to being an amazing hockey player, he's an incurable romantic with an XL heart - and an XXL hockey stick in his pants. And he knows how to use it. Incredibly, orgasmically well. Alex is the whole package and more. Literally. Like his package is insane. Total world record holder material.

What made the experience of listening to Forever Pucked the most enjoyable?

Love to hear what is going on with Alex and Violet

Would you listen to another book narrated by Emily C. Michaels and Jeremy York ?

Hard to listen to Emily-she has no difference in her story telling. It's fast, fast, fast and no emotion. Jeremy York should have read the whole book!!!

He was someone who belonged in my wildest fantasies instead of a rest stop in the middle of Nebraska. A sexy, cocky Australian named Chance was the last person I expected to run into on my cross-country drive. When my car broke down, we made a deal. Next thing I knew, we were traveling together, spending sexually tense nights in hotels, and taking unplanned detours. My ordinary road trip turned into the adventure of a lifetime. It was all fun and games until things got intense.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes, it was a great story line. Love the characters. Just did care for Aaron Abano. He didn't have the correct accent. And he doesn't know how to act. It was cringe worthy at best

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Aaron Abano was horrible in this. Michelle Ferguson did a much better job and wished she did the whole book

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

yes.

Chronic loser Rebecca Alton is penniless, homeless, and sleeping on her sister’s couch. She needs a job, fast, but in this economy finding one is easier said than done. When she accidentally walks into the wrong office and finds herself auditioning for the role of fake girlfriend and very real babysitter to Carter Hudson, the out-of-control lead guitarist of an up and coming rock band, can she pull it off? And considering who her boss would be - Carter's brother and the band’s bassist, manager, and undisputed king of bad attitudes Kent Hudson - would she even want the job?

Mal Ericson, drummer for the world-famous rock band Stage Dive, needs to clean up his image fast - at least for a little while. Having a good girl on his arm should do the job just fine. Mal doesn't plan on this temporary fix becoming permanent, but he didn't count on finding the one right girl. Anne Rollins never thought she'd ever meet the rock god who plastered her teenage bedroom walls - especially not under these circumstances. Anne has money problems. Big ones. But being paid to play the pretend girlfriend to a wild life-of-the-party drummer couldn't end well.

If you could sum up Gabriel's Rapture in three words, what would they be?

Alluring, romantic and tingling

What other book might you compare Gabriel's Rapture to and why?

One of the reasons I choose this book because the reviews had said it was like Fifty Shades of Grey. Well, it's not. I have been reading romance novels for many, many, MANY years and I can honestly say that I have never read anything like this novel before.

What does John Morgan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Mr Morgan's voice is velvet!!! He gives the ability, at least for me to envision and give life to the characters. Emotion to the words. A sense of reality.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Oh, Boy, did I have an extreme reaction to this book-An astounding YES!!! It made me wistful and regretful that my first romantic encounter did not happen this way. The range of emotion was great, laughing, crying, tingling, and a longing for the ability to travel through time (BIG HEAVY SIGHHH)

Any additional comments?

I could not put my kindle down!!! I have now added Sylvain Reynard to my favorite authors list!!! I eagerly await the next book!! This book should be required reading for all men for how to romance your way to a woman's heart!!!
