I loved this book it kept me company on a long journey and made my day. It was bright, funny, sweet and addictive.
The characters were great, so well written and read. They had such different personalities and foibles.
I actually think this would make a great chickflick! The online dating subject matter is hilarious and touching.

I liked the storyline of this book, showing the strength and ability to overcome horror. It has suspense, romance and manipulation through fear. Elaine Marie's story was compelling.
Carly read a bit fast paced for me and I felt myself wanting to take a breath for her. Whether I got used to it or she changed as the book went on it didn’t deter me from listening.

Dear Melrose, The first time I met you, you were a stranger. The second time, you were my roommate. The third time, you made it clear you were about to become the biggest thorn my side had ever known. You sing way too loud in the shower and use all the hot water. You’re bossy as hell. You make my life all kinds of complicated. But no matter how hard I try, I can’t stop thinking about you. Truthfully...I can’t stop wanting you. I was going to tell you this.

I loved this book! It was a short intense story that actually surprised me with its content. It was well written and lost nothing with its shortness, infact the hugeness of the story made it feel like a longer book, R E Hargrave wrote a blinder!
La Petite Mort narrated it brilliantly.

A must read!

What a book 2!
To start with I love Dakota’s input at the beginning about how this story came to life, her ethos and how she implemented it! She certainly got it right!

Now that second book oh my goodness! You’ve read the blurb and the first one and I’m not one for spoilers! So all I can say is just Wow! Gripping!
Fitz and Cadence have grown up and life has taken their innocent trust and thrown in some serious lack of jugement.
This book is one rollercoaster and such solid story content. Politics, romance, regret, secrets and lies! All brought to life by the wonderful tones and characterisation of the narrators Zachary Webber and Lacy Laurel.

5 stars and high recommendations from me!

Well here’s a story of what being rubbish at communication deals you in life! Kim Loraine certainly made this a rollercoaster of emotions and guessing! Will they? Won’t they? With loads of twists and turns and unexpected plot changes, Such a strong storyline and if you ever wanted to bash 2 peoples heads together!!
Narration was great! Zachary Webber and Lacy Laurel we’re perfect (I actually thought there were 3 narrators) The characterisation was fantastic.
A great listen that had me hooked!
Definitely recommend by me.

Such an easy listen. Jaime W Powell wrote a beautiful contemporary romance which gives a great look at the frustrations and complex musings of the heart. It shows how love and loss can make us act unchareceristically and how emotional connections can make for bad decisions. The characters were strong and well written and Keira Stevens narrated nicely, together creating wonderful characterisation.

I wanted a family with Cash. We had dreams - building a house, kids, a dog, and, yes, even the white picket fence. I don’t remember anything about my husband. Not the wedding or the vows we shared. The past 10 years were erased, but with time, they’re supposed to come back. But what if this isn’t your typical case of amnesia? What if I’m not supposed to remember? What if I was meant to forget? Maybe I don’t want my old life back. Because if the accident hadn’t happened, I wouldn’t have uncovered the truth. Losing my memory wasn’t tragic. Losing my memory was fate.

A great start to the Devils Gate Series.
I haven’t heard anything from Grace White before but I’m pleased I have now..
To be honest I wasn’t going to listen to this one as the cover had me thinking it would be just another hot and steamy vampire story .. Oh how wrong was I! After reading a friends comment about the book I decided to give it a go (as I respect her audiobook judgement)
Book 1 starts us in with a strong unique story, With equally strong characters. I really wasn’t ready for it to end! I was definately left a little gob smacked and ready for the next!
Sarah Puckett narrates beautifully, her differentiation between the characters is Clear and her voice very easy on the ear.

I really enjoyed this Listen! Jennifer Ann wrote a romance that had you changing your mind about things constantly, kept you second guessing throughout. It had Dirt, intrigue, twists and romance. Her characterisation was such that she had you getting passionate about the characters; love them, hate them, feel sorry for them and be downright angry on their behalf!
the story was strong and not just a romance, so much more! I do like to guess the ending early on and I may have got gotten near...ish (after a few changes of direction) but I also missed the mark by a mile! So don't start listening to this thinking you know its story.
Amanda Stibling brought the characters to life and her voices were great, such variation, feeling and differentiation, she even had great British accent!

I highly recommend this listen, I will certainly be looking out for more!
