So if you’ve been following the series you know about Sammy and his Daddy Rafael. In these short scenes we get a glimpse into their life and boy are they bittersweet scenes. Their meeting and beginning their life together had me smiling, but at the same time I knew what was coming and trust me - you need to prepare for tears. We also see Sammy and Davey meeting for the first time which gives another glimpse of happiness. A lovely bittersweet tale of love that is narrated well by Michael Dean and will leave you wanting more.

I really enjoyed this sweet royal introduction to Chester Falls. I’m a sucker for a good royal romance and How to Catch a Prince was a thoroughly enjoyable one. Anna Newfolk has introduced an interesting town, and lots of interesting characters I can’t wait to read more about! Both main characters in How to Catch a Prince are endearing, Kris (the Prince in the title) is looking for a way to escape the press which results in him meeting Charlie. Charlie was probably my favourite of the two MCs, sweet and adorable and so close to his family. I really enjoyed the story, fake boyfriends and royal in one story combined well to make a really sweet and almost cozy story that was just right to listen to today. The narration was really good too. I’m admittedly picky about my narrators because some voices just set my teeth on edge, but Nick Hudson is definitely someone I’m going to look at listening to more of. Nice voices and brought the book to life very well. I’m definitely looking forward to more from Chester Falls!

I really enjoyed the fact that all of the books in the series were contained in the bundle. It made it easy to just keep listening (to the detriment of my work maybe!!!). Susi Hawke writes a good book - there’s no doubt about that. And all 4 in this series are equally as good. Add in the fantastic narration of John Solo and there’s no way that you’ll be let down!

Micah is tricked into going to the bar when a kink night is on. He meets Carter there and that’s the start of their tale.

I really enjoyed this audiobook. Carter has been through some tough stuff but he still helps Micah come into his own. A sweet tale with emotion it is narrated wonderfully and with the emotion that I felt reading the story originally.

MA Innes just has a way of making amazing characters. I can’t even pick who is my favourite out of Cody, Jameson and Ford.

Cody is adorable, both in his little self, and in adult Cody. Beyond super smart and not really fitting in with people his own age he’s been in love with Jameson for years. Jameson is a professor...and still determined to see Cody as the 14 year old he first met even as he is attracted to him. Cody has discovered age-play and a trip to a club results in him meeting Ford. Ford is a Daddy, and asexual.

I loved the story and the characters. How they interacted with each other, both in duos and the three of them together was so sweet. The narration is spot on too which always helps. With there being three main characters sometimes the waters (or rather the voices) can be muddied but Kenneth Obi keeps everyone distinct and individual. I know I always say it about his narration but he makes me feel like it’s the first time I’m experiencing the book and that’s amazing to me.

One word...Amazing

So we know Julius and Emrys from the other books in the series. And see how protective they are of each other. Both of them, and all of Ailin’s coven are still recovering from the happenings in the last book. Adding to that they’re trying to sort out the seal that Emrys has (that links into the reason he and Ailin weren’t friends or coven-mates any more).

I love how we got input and to see the POV from not only both Jules and Emrys but Seb and Ailin too. I loved Ailin’s protectiveness (even if his attitude to Jules frustrated me a bit after a while), how Seb calms Ailin down, and Emrys and Jules together. I love all Ailin’s kids (Jorah and Thayer are my faves, Basil is hilarious), and the witch’s Bonded Ones. Jules and Emrys’ pasts broke my heart - they went through so much.

As always Kenneth Obi’s narrating of the series is spot on. He is amazing at these characters and makes me feel like I’m experiencing a fantastic book for the first time (when really I’ve read it because I need to read a book before I listen). Michele Notaro’s writing is superb I’ve devoured each of these books and the last in the series was one of my most eagerly awaited in recent times. In one word...amazing.

Amazing!!!

I had been waiting for Pixie’s story since we first met him in Rebel. I could tell straight away that he needed a Daddy and every glimpse we got of him through the series cemented that fact. And both I and Pixie knew there was only one Daddy for him...Bear! Though Bear was fighting it I hoped he’d cave.

I love Pixie - he’s beyond adorable...and really needed a Daddy to look after him. Daddy Bear is amazing too, and fighting off his attraction to Pixie for what he thinks are the right reasons. Some parts of this book broke my heart - and I’m not ashamed to admit there were some tears, which is always the mark of a great written and narrated book. I thought I was prepared for it after reading Pixie - I didn’t think that the narration would get me but why I thought that with the amazing Kenneth Obi narrating just shows how daft I am! Kenneth Obi’s narration broke my heart all over again - he truly is a superb narrator.

I’m sad the series has ended, because the Ballsy Boys are amazing...and because I don’t want to say goodbye to them.

Campy and Jackson...amazing

Campy was always mysterious in the prior books, and in his own story we get to see back behind the mystery of him. I love his character so much - we really get to see to the heart of him and the angst he goes through.

Jackson is also different from the glimpse we saw of him before - he knows what he wants and he makes sure he goes about things the right way to get it.

Love K.M. Neuhold and Nora Phoenix’s writing, both singly and together and Campy was no exception. I don’t know what it is about Kenneth Obi’s narration that makes him stand out of the crowd of narrators to be but he has something special. I need to read a book before I listen to it and he makes me feel like I’m experiencing it for the first time. Great distinct voices for all characters - and oh my goodness is Jackson’s accent swoon-worthy!!!

Having read the Hollydale books I was excited to see the bundle come out. This gives great value for money/a credit. Each book is sweet, fun and hilarious and there’s a tiny touch of the paranormal in there too. I really enjoyed how each Alpha and omega got their happily ever after.

Drew Bacca’s narration is thoroughly enjoyable, with easily identifiable characters that are all believable and not caricatures of the characters being portrayed. Each of the books was fantastic - and I can’t even pick my favourite. Definitely worth a relisten!

Heart and Mason and Lucky...oh my!!!

Heart has had a bad time in the past and fears trusting thanks to his ex.
Mason is awkward and shy and thanks to his ex thinks he sucks in the bedroom.
Lucky likes things in order, so how is he going to cope when not one but two men come into his life?

I loved the interactions between all 3 main characters. Both Heart and Mason have issues that make them feel unlovable and that they’re going to be the third wheel in the relationship. They each help the other, along with Lucky, to realise there is a place for them and that is all 3 of them together.

Sometimes with books with multiple POVs narrators can struggle to make the characters distinct. Not so with the vocal talents of Kenneth Obi. This man is an amazing narrator that manages to keep all the characters distinct and individual as well as being engaging.
