Micah Preston is Hollywood's number one sex symbol. A rich and famous actor who has sworn off any serious relationships, the playboy is the media's favorite bachelor. But he wasn't anybody when Maddie Bauer met him seven years ago. Then he was just the hot guy at the party who gave her an amazing orgasm and never called her again. Now her job as a camera assistant has landed her on the set of his latest movie, and despite her vow to ignore his charm, she finds him pulling her focus.

I loved this novel. I didn't want it to finish.
I will certainly be reading more Laurelin Paige novels.
Beautifully written. A well researched and commanding description of a theatrical life, which draws the reader in. I feel like I've just been taken to the movies.
Brilliantly narrated by Andi Arndt.
I would definitely recommend this book. Fantastic!

When I met Donovan Kincaid, I knew he was rich. I didn't know he was filthy. Truth be told, I was only trying to get his best friend to notice me. I knew poor scholarship girls like me didn't stand a chance against guys like Weston King and Donovan Kincaid, but I was in love with his world, their world, of parties and sex and power. I knew what I wanted - I knew who I wanted - until one night, their world tried to bite me back and Donovan saved me. He saved me, and then Weston finally noticed me, and I finally learned what it was to be in their world.

This is the first of Laurelin Paige’s books that I have listened to. I can't wait to start the second part in the Duet.
This is a powerful and passionate love tangle. Masterful, commanding and dominating.
Elena Wolfe's performance brings this story alive.

Weeks became months, and months became years. Each day nudged Kason deeper into his addiction. Each memory of the girl destroyed fed the craving for what he could never have again. Leaving a life-altering first love behind, Adaline tried moving forward to find love and trust and happiness. Pain eventually faded, wounds slowly healed, yet scars were forever left behind. But some scars feel like kisses. When the shattered pieces of their hearts are forced to meet again, the two of them must decide how much pain their love is worth enduring.

Having listened to Crave Part One I knew I had to listen to Crave Part Two. This is a story of young love that is wrenched from each person's hands and the direction that each of them takes in an attempt to heal. One person chooses the 'love' of her best friend and the other person chooses his own nemesis, until a tragedy forces them to reconsider their true feelings for one another.
I found E.K. Blair's story telling powerful. This was a love story with passion and at times it was raw and powerful. Combined with the brilliant narration from Elena Wolfe and Jacob Morgan, I was drawn into this story and couldn’t put it down.
The way the Author has ended Crave Part Two leaves, in my view, the option to take this story to a third part. I enjoyed this story and would definitely recommend this read Parts One and Two for the complete experience.

This wasn't supposed to happen. But it did. This wasn't supposed to be my life. But it was. I was just a typical girl, living a typical life. Nothing was out of the ordinary until tragedy threw me into a turnstile I couldn't see my way out of. That was, until him. I never could've imagined my heart falling the way it did. Hard, fast, and with unbounding beauty. The only problem? He was off limits. Forbidden. But he became my everything, and I became his, so we risked it all.

Wow! I so lived this story. I was drawn in by the end of the first chapter. What amazing writing. Such passionate expression of a love that is considered so taboo. Sometimes though love can be so unpredictable. This story is such a tragic one, that innocently morphs into a passionate and forbidden love story. It had me gripped and crying tears of sadness and of joy.
This was the first book by E. K. Blair that I have listened to, but I will, most certainly be reading another.
I love the narrator Elena Wolfe - also known as Andi Arndt - and she narrates this story beautifully.
One awesome, well written story narrated by one awesome Narrator. If you haven't read or listened to this book and are tempted, then I would definitely say “jump right in”. You’ll not regret it! Brilliant!!

I don't take women to bed. I take them against the wall, hard and fast, and when I come I make sure they remember. They always do. I'm cocky as hell, I've got reason to be. I own Spades Royalle, the sexiest casino in Vegas. F - k, the sexiest casino in the country. I'm gonna keep building my empire all on my own - my ties with the mafia are in my past, buried with the bones of my family. I like my money clean and my women dirty. That is until I met Emmy Rose.

I struggled finishing this book. From the entire length of the recording, there is probably only about 30 minutes of ‘story’. It would take less time to watch a DVD than listen to this. If it’s a book about sex you”re after, then you’ll have fun with this. Just not for me. Love the narrators though!!

I wasn't looking for his kind of trouble. It found me anyway. Tall. Dark. Addictive. He unravels me with his kisses. Melts me with his touch. But he has secrets. A hidden agenda beyond his craving for me. A desire for more than tangled silk sheets and our sweat-slicked skin. I need to run. From him. From the lies. But running from the hunter means I've now become the prey.

My first experience of Eden Summer's writing and I wasn't let down. A really well written novel that included an action packed storyline and strong characters, bought to life by two strong Narrators - Maxine Mitchell and Joe Arden.

I knew on the day of the attack that our lives were changed forever. What I didn’t know then was that I’d never see John again after he deployed. One day he was living with me, sleeping next to me, making plans with me. The next day he was gone. That was five years ago. The world has moved on from that awful day, but I’m stuck in my own personal hell, waiting for a man who may be dead for all I know. At my sister’s wedding, I meet Eric, the brother of the groom, and my heart comes alive once again.

Marie Force does it again. A really good story that makes you sit back and think how you would react given the same situation. This is, I feel, three stories in one.
Performed by two great narraters who help bring the story to life.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. Look up Landon Roderick, that boy from childhood whom I'd never been able to forget - even though he so easily forgot about me - and call him. Then again, anything sounds like a good idea when you've had a little too much wine before bed, right? It was supposed to be just a quick, meaningless prank call. Instead I went off on him - unloading 13 years of pent-up emotions. I didn't think he'd call me back.

I like Penelope Ward's books. I liked this book right until one of the last chapters and I still can't quite fathom out why it was included. In my opinion it wasn't necessary. It didn't add to the story, so why include it.
Otherwise another good read from Penelope Ward and narrated by the brilliant Andi Arndt.

A new standalone novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author, Vi Keeland. The night I met Drew Jagger, he'd just broken into my new Park Avenue office. I dialed 9-1-1 before proceeding to attack him with my fancy new Krav Maga skills. He quickly restrained me, then chuckled, finding my attempted assault amusing. Of course, my intruder had to be arrogant. Only, turned out, he wasn't an intruder at all. Drew was the rightful occupant of my new office. He'd been on vacation while his posh space was renovated.
