I’ve been listening to my father sing for my whole life. I carry him in my pocket on my MP3 player. It’s just that we’ve never met face to face. My mother would never tell me how I came to be, or why my rock star father and I have never met. I thought it was her only secret. I was wrong. When she dies, he finally appears. Suddenly I have a first-class ticket into my father’s exclusive world. A world I don’t want any part of - not at this cost. Only three things keep me going: my a cappella singing group, a swoony blue-eyed boy named Jake, and the burning questions in my soul.

Wow, this was such a great listen. This is a story about a father and daughter navigating a relationship that should and is in certain ways fraught with difficulties, but coming out the other side of it for the better.

For a debut into YA, this is definitely worth spending a credit on and I personally can't wait for Sarina Bowen to write more in this genre.

Kate Rudd did a great job narrating and bringing the story to life.

It was just a typical Monday. Until the big boss asked me to make the pitch for a prospective new client. After two years on shaky ground at work because of my screw up, an opportunity to impress the senior partners was just what I needed. Or so I thought, until I walked into the conference room and collided with the man I was supposed to pitch to. My coffee spilled, my files tumbled to the ground, and I almost lost my balance. And that was the good part of my day. Because the gorgeous man who crouched down and looked at me like he wanted to eat me alive was none other than my ex.

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

It was a fun, sexy, angsty and emotional story which makes this a pretty perfect listen for me.

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

Can't wait to read Vi Keeland's next book.

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.

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.
