Secrets never stay hidden. The burden of guilt never lifts from the heart. Born and raised in The Order of David, Sister Phebe knows nothing but cult life. Head of the Sacred Sisters of New Zion, Phebe was groomed from childhood for one purpose: to seduce. Prized as a harlot, Phebe is taken from the doomed cult by Meister, the notorious leader of the Aryan Brotherhood. Taken as his possession. Taken to be the woman who will obey his every sexual demand. Under his heavy hand, Phebe finds herself in a place much worse than she could ever have imagined... with absolutely no one to help.

I'm a massive fan of this series and love the Hangmen, I read this when it was first released so knew I was going to love this audible version of AK and Phebe and I wasn't wrong as Patrick Garrett, Emily Cauldwell, Douglas Berger & Aaron Sinn all did a fantastic job of narrating a story filled with difficult subject matters (rape, racism, addiction etc).

This like other books in the series is extremely dark and graphic in places, but its serves it purpose.

Can't wait until the next book in the series is released on audible.

I'm a massive fan of J.M. Darhower and she didn't disappoint with this second chance romance.
This about Kennedy and Jonathan (Johnny) reconnecting after 5 years and be able to see past faults and lies to fall for each other again.

Joe Arden & Maxine Mitchell did a great job (as usual) narrating, I can't imagine anyone else being able to bring the story to life like they did and they both did a great job narrating little Maddie as well, who is just as much one of the main characters as Kennedy and Jonathan is.

This has to be my best listen of 2018 by far.

It continues Willow and Alex's story against the Church of Angels and the actual angels themselves.

The Five Wishes Series is five hot and hilarious novellas about wishes that go terribly wrong…fortunately. Each novella is roughly 100 pages with NO cliffhanger. Five Wishes...A happy ending is just a coin toss away.

This is just what I needed to listen to right now, this was a great feel good listen that had me laughing and wanting to listen to more once I started.

Angie Hickman did a great job narrating this series, it's my first time listening to a book she has narrated, but it certainly won't be my last.

I went into this audiobook with high expectation as every review I read was really positive and it didn't disappoint.

Dane and Audra's chemistry was obvious and real, which just made the story flow so effortlessly.

Lance Greenfield did a good job at narrating, though at times I felt like he was a bit over dramatic where as Erin Mallon did a spot on job and I can't imagine anyone else capturing Audra's character as well she did.

This is definitely going onto my re-listen pile.

Growing up, the three of us were friends. He was the nerd. I was the playboy. She was the beauty. Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits. He lied. I went off to college, and he got the girl. Amber never knew how I felt. They were together for years - before he broke her heart. Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch. When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room.

When Penelope Ward writes something you know that it's going to be good and this was no exception.

It was a fun, sexy and emotional story with enough angst to make this a pretty much perfect listen.

Andi Arndt and Sebastian York did an amazing job narrating as usual.

Can't wait to read Penelope Ward's next book.

He taught me to kill. Murder is in my blood now. It runs through my veins and though I hide the monster I see in the mirror with ink, it doesn't keep him from coming out. My street name is Mercy, but I never show any. Except for her. I watch Becca, though she doesn't know. She saved me a long time ago; the day my father killed my mother. Her bravery turned her into a target. My father holds a grudge and knife with the same proficiency, and Becca is the focus of his hatred. And I'm the only monster who can save her.

This audiobook was addictive, I wish life didn't get in the way or otherwise I would of listened to it in one sitting. ;) .

I loved the chemistry between Nix and Becca, they were really hot together. I can't wait for Animal's story (Havoc), which is released in April, he was a great secondary character which just added so much to the story of Nix.

Muffy Newtown & Zachary Webber were brilliant at narrating this and added so much depth to the characters.

An unforgettable new novella from number-one New York Times best-selling author Jamie McGuire. Everything about Abby and Travis’s elopement was top-secret… until now. Fans of Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster will get all of their questions answered in this whirlwind tale of the wedding day (and night!) - and as with all good stories, this one will definitely have been worth the wait.

Having loved Beautiful Disaster and Walking Disaster I thought this would be just as good, but unfortunatley this was not the case.

I think this was partly due to Emma Galvin's narration, it was almost like she sounded bored throughout. Thank God Zachary Webber was reading Travis's POV or otherwise I wouldn't of been able to make it the end.

In my opinion this isn't worth the money/credit unless you're a die-hard fan of the series.
