Michel still bears the emotional scars of serving in Afghanistan and is trying to adjust to civilian life. When his uncle passes away he finds out that he has inherited a house and hopes that this is the new beginning he needs.

When he walks into one of the shops in town he is surprised to see the woman that he has seen taking her nightly walks on the beach. She has a painful past of her own but will they be able to heal each other?

This is an emotional story about love, healing and new beginnings. I received a complimentary copy of the audiobook and thought the narrator did a great job of bringing the story to life.

As a condition of Jace’s release from prison he must attend sessions with his court ordered counselor to help him adjust to life outside prison. Out of all the Riggs brothers Jace’s quiet and considerate personality made him the least likely to end up in jail.

Tara is his counselor and she is having troubles reconciling Jace as an ex-con and although she knows she should keep her distance there is no denying the connection between them.

They both have pasts which are causing some drama and suspense but there is no doubting that these two are meant to be. I thought the narrators did a great job with both these characters and made the story enjoyable to listen to. I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook.

After being away for eight years Emily has returned to her hometown to help out her sister and the last person that she expected to see was Luke, the only man she has ever loved.

Luke has returned to town after eight years as well as with his dad in jail he and his brothers need to not only run his business but make it honest as well.

Emily and Luke were together when they were 18 however she was the daughter of a cop and he was the bad boy from the wrong side of town. Their attraction is back stronger than ever but must their feelings for each other always be a dirty secret or this time around are they able to show everyone how they feel about each other?

I really enjoyed the narration of this story and thought that the narrators were a perfect choice for this story. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

When Meghan walks in on her boyfriend cheating on her she decides to go on the vacation that they had planned alone with the understanding that he would move out while she was gone. When she arrives at the home she rented the surprise is on her when a sexy stranger is already staying there.

Deme’s family owned the home however he didn’t realize it was rented. He does not want to return home and spend Christmas with his disapproving family so they agree to share.

As they spend time together the chemistry between them ignites but when Deme’s sister comes to bring him home is their fairy tale about to come to an end? I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook and I thought the narrators did a great job with the dialect of both characters.

Ian is a man who still carries the emotional scars of his past with him. He is loyal and willing to do anything for his family even if he has always felt like an outsider and focuses the rest of his attention on his career in rugby. Although he has deep feelings for his Riley, his teammate’s sister, he ended their relationship a year ago but now wants a second chance.

Riley has a painful past of her own and prefers to remain on the sidelines of her brother’s life. She learnt at an early age that men shouldn’t be trusted and when she broke that rule with Ian she was left devastated.

They can’t seem to stay away from each other but also have difficulty sharing their pasts and emotions with each other which makes their journey full of angst and drama but the end result is well worth the ride. I received a complimentary copy of the audiobook and thought the narrators were a perfect place and had you feeling like you were in Ireland as well. 🎧 Audiobook Obsession

Joel is the star college basketball player who can have any girl except for the one he wants. He is intrigued by Katrina and he shows up at the café she works at every Thursday to ask her on a date even though she turns him down every time.
Katrina is balancing both college and being a single parent which keeps her very busy. She is attracted to Joel but doesn’t believe he would anything more than a fling and her life is already complicated enough as it is.

When she needs his assistance he agrees in exchange for a date. She soon realizes that appearances can be deceiving and there is much more to Joel than she thought.

Joel is so sweet and sexy both to Katrina and her son and I really enjoyed seeing how the characters and their relationship evolved over the course of the story. I thought the narrators were a perfect choice for the characters.

Ever since Liam became her guardian six years ago Samantha has lived in a cocoon, protected at every turn but now that she is going on tour and leaving North Securities compound that is about to change. The transformation of Samantha in this story is like a caterpillar to a butterfly as she spreads her wings and embraces her independence even if her heart still belongs to Liam.

It is taking all the strength that Liam has to let her go and become the woman that she is meant to be. He may not be there physically, but he knows exactly what is going on with her and at the first sign that the danger surrounding her is becoming too close nothing will keep him away.

This story takes you on a twisty ride filled with great secondary characters, suspense and a chemistry and connection between Liam and Samantha that overpowers everything.
