Jake is itching to become a patched member of the Kings of Hell MC. For two years he's toiled as the only prospect. So when a new guy swans in and thinks he'll get a patch in no time just because he's got friends in high places, Jake is there to stand in his way. Vars is ready to find a new home in the Kings of Hell MC after a messy relationship led him straight to hell. In comparison, the pretty, blue-eyed prospect could be just the pleasant rebound he needs. The boy is a brat, but that could be amended with a firm hand and a gag.

This is the third book in the Kings of Hell MC series and in my opinion the best yet.
K.A. Merikan are extremely talented writers and have incredible imaginations, they are able to build a unique world that draws you in and characters that are engaging and interesting.
This in combination with the versatility and very atmospheric way Joel Leslie expertly narrates this series of books, it's a winning combination for me.
I can't wait for Grey's Shadow.

What a fantastic new start to a new series from Hailey Turner!
After listening to her Metahuman series I knew that this author was a master of world building but she took it to another level in this series.
This urban fantasy is set in New York and is full of magic, paranormal and supernatural creatures, Gods, Goddesses, werewolves, vampires,
Demons and witches and mages.
The cast of characters is vast and the story is complex so you really do need to concentrate to follow the story.
Although I really did like Patrick and Jono, the two main characters, I just didn't feel the same chemistry as I did with Jamie and Kyle from In the Wreckage. Maybe this will strengthen over time in the next book.

Is it really wrong to want to murder your boss? Dylan has worked for Gabe for two years. Two long years of sarcastic comments. Two long years of insults, and having to redo the coffee pot four times in the mornings to meet his exacting standards. Not surprisingly he has devoted a lot of time to increasingly inventive ways to murder Gabe. From stabbing him with a cake fork, to garrotting him with his expensive tie, Dylan has thought of everything. However, a chance encounter opens his eyes to the attraction that has always lain between them, concealed by the layers of antipathy.

Oh how I have waited for this book to come on audio and it doesn't disappoint! It takes it to a level way beyond my imagination can muster, especially with the artistic talents of Joel Leslie, whose voice I heard in my head when I read this book the first time! Lol
I can't wait to listen to Deal Maker to find out if Jude can find love too.

This action packed thriller is told from former SAS officer and current spy, Jack Reardon’s point of view and flips back and forth between two timelines, present day and one year ago when he first met assassin Ethan Blade.
The plot is complex and intellectually written, the characters likeable and intriguing and the plot has twists and turns that kept me on my toes throughout.
The romance is a complicated slow burn due to the relationship and the situation the MC’s are in but that makes it all the more worth the wait.
I hope that the next in the series is made available on audiobook.

A great box set of short shifter stories from Susie Hawke, Northern Pines Den Alphas Books 1-3, is a great series filled with sweet, fun, sexy shifters, meeting their true mates.
Although it is predominantly a lighthearted, set of stories filled with hilarious situations, and sexy times, there is also a background of loss and impending war running throughout the three books, which is written extremely well.
Great light listening.

I was hoping that the Unbreakable Bonds Series would eventually come to audiobook when I learned that Ward Security was published on Audiobook last year, and it was so worth the wait!
The connection between friends, Lucas, Ashton (Snow), Rowe and Ian is a complex one but loyal one.
This story concentrates on Lucas, who due to some business dealings is in need of a bodyguard, enter Andrei. I loved the relationship between Lucas and Andrei and the sexual tension between them was HOT!
As I have read all the other books in this series I can honestly say they will be definitely on my auto buy on day of release.

One regular guy who happens to be a preacher. Reverend Dr. Gabe Samson doesn’t think he’s better than any of the people in his church, so please don’t put him on a pedestal. While he’s never hidden the fact that he identifies as bisexual, he’s never acted on it either. Gabe isn’t happy to learn that the sole reason he was hired to pastor the LGBT-friendly church was that the ruling elders wanted a safe poster child for inclusivity - in other words, they wanted the rainbow flag without letting it fly.

How Not To Sin is the 3rd book in the Lovestrong series, and although it can totally be read/listened to as a stand alone as I did, I would recommend you read/listen to the rest of the series to fully appreciate the characters from book 1 and 2 who make an appearance.
In this story we have Gabe, the openly Bisexual pastor of a inclusive Presbyterian church and his new boyfriend Seth, who owns the towns metaphysical Centre. These two men are perfect for each other and compliment each other’s personalities so well.
Despite a small minority trying to undermine the progressive values held by the church, in particular one church elder, start to make life very hard for Gabe. Seth and the rest of the other LGBTQ+ members of the congregation come together in defence and support.
Michael Pauley, as always did a stellar job of narrating.

Wow! I thought book one was great but this second book just blew it out of the water!
Bleed is a much darker, angst filled book than the first, following pack Alpha Nicolae’s son Mason, and the family’s personal bodyguard, Vasil who are both themselves Alphas.
We continue to see the previous characters from Exhale throughout, Jack, Ellie Andrei and Leonine, and they are strong characters within the story.
I would recommend reading/listening to the first book to fully appreciate Mason, Jack and Ellie’s characters.
Kirt Graves was excellent narrating, his subtle differences between each character despite the accent being the same was very clever and enabled me to still distinguish between them.
I’m hoping that Joel Abernathy will be writing a third book in this series in the future.

This is the third book in Rent-a-Dom series and can be read as a stand alone.
Dakota is rather unconventional omega, one which has a demanding and high powered job but then wishes to be dominated in bed but none of the romance. He is in a relationship with Asher a Beta who works as a construction worker in the same company, but Asher loves to romance Dakota and is not comfortable dominating.
Enter Guy from Rent-a-Dom to teach them to be more compatible in the bedroom, feelings soon evolve, and an unplanned pregnancy.
I absolutely loved Asher and felt his hurt and disappointment, maybe that’s because I’m a romantic at heart too lol
It was great to see a Beta starring in one of these types of books as they always seem to get a back seat.
It took me a long while to warmup to Dakota, I just thought he was thoughtless and hurtful.
Probably would be my my least favourite of the series if it hadn’t been for Asher.

This is the third edition of The Rainbow Key Series and it is a great addition, I’m really getting invested into the characters and their stories.
This is a second chance romance between Ben a beautiful male model and Zach his award winning photographer, then a tragic event, immaturity and lack of communication causes a breakup.
Years later, there is a chance reunion on Rainbow Key, where Ben has been in hiding and Zach has come for medical respite.
I’m loving how Victoria Sue is addressing all the medical, physical, emotional and psychological issues in these stories and look forward to the next book.
