When a simple "find and fetch" case throws Private Investigator Twig Starfig and newly minted wizard Quinn Broomsparkle into the middle of an EBI murder investigation, it’s just another day in the Elder Realm. If murder were Twig’s only problem, he’d be the luckiest half-dragon in the land. Murder he can handle. Fulfilling his promise to his scheming, power-hungry father to run for a seat on Lighthelm’s city council? Meh, he’d rather face a demon with a toothache.

I loved this, the secund book in the Starfig Investigations series. The central plot was engaging and the relationship between the main characters is developing nicely with plenty of issues to be resolved in the future. The potential relationships that will develop for the side characters are exciting too.
Greg Boudreaux does an excellent job with the narration. Good character differentiation with the characters and the emotions are well nuanced.
Can't wait for book 3.

Greg Dawson’s not sure which he regrets more - becoming a vampire or becoming a software engineer. Then relief comes from an unexpected source - Zane Webber, the hot programmer Greg’s been fantasizing about for two years. Zane lets him feed, but kind of forgets to mention he’s got some weed in his system. The next thing Greg knows, he’s high as a kite...and he likes it. He wants more. That chemistry draws them back to each other again and again. Except how much of that high is secondhand weed, and how much is the electric and undeniable chemistry between him and Zane?

I loved this short story from one of my favourite authors. The situation was unusual which made the story stand out. It's very hot, with lots of sex scenes for a short, but not at the excitement of either the story or the romance. Nick J Russo did a fantastic job with the narration. The characters voices are perfect and the story goes beautifully. Loved it.

Strange things are happening all around Brinnswick. Things that remind me of a piece of my past I’d rather forget. Girls are being killed, drained of blood, and left with strange markings on their bodies. When I finally connect the cases together, a specialist is called in - though, what he’s a specialist of is beyond me. When the chief assigns him as my new partner for the case, I can’t help but groan on the inside. Why of all people would I be assigned to Ailin Ellwood?

This book was so much more exciting than I was expecting. A truly surprising and gripping storyline, full of shocks and twists. Kenneth Obi's narration brings a depth to the characterisation as well as the dramatic effect that makes this such a fun listen. I can't wait fur the next in the series.

Felix and Lane are trying out their new normal. No more car chases, no more drug lords, and no more kidnapping bad guys. But when Felix's brother wants to repair their relationship, he brings with him a secret that could cost all of them their lives. Lane isn't complaining because the thrills of life-threatening situations are right up his alley. They may think they have a handle on the situation, but what they do not know is that someone has been working them from the shadows. Forcing them to do exactly what he wants as he drives them closer to his sick game of life and death.

Another triumph from Alice Winters. Felix and Lane are as snarky and sassy as ever and this acts as a perfect counterpoint to the Darkness of the story. Wonderfully narrated by the amazing Joel Leslie, he's one of my favourite narrators because if his versatility and range. Loved every second.

Sloane loves a good mystery. He grew up as the son of two psychiatrists, so he finds most people tediously easy to figure out. He finds his way to Pennsylvania State University, longing for a rural experience, and ends up being lured into joining a frat by Micah Springfield, the hippest guy on campus.

This is a lovely Christmas romance from Eli Easton, who can always be relied upon to deliver sweetness and spice for the holidays. It's charming with lots of great ensemble characters who are developed really well in their own right. The story holds lots of interest and the slow burn is a delight. Sloane and Hank are perfect for each other and when they finally get together, sparks fly. HEA guaranteed.

I don't need anyone's protection. I'm fine. But to appease my sister after a home invasion, I agree to take self-defense lessons. They just so happen to be with a big, muscled former navy SEAL who may or may not be everything I've always daydreamed about but never thought I could have. And he's dead set on looking out for me even when things in my life suddenly get complicated. Between the increasing threats against me and pressure from my wealthy family to be someone I'm not, I'm having a hard time keeping it together.

Saint and Auggie are everything you could want from a Lucy Lennox couple. They're funny, sexy, just enough angst and self doubt. but together, they are the perfect believe of sweet and spicy.

Michael Pauley's narration hits it out of the park as always, so sexy, so funny, so sweet.

Loved it and the teasers for what's to come next, hold on to your hats folks.

Fun story with shifters I hadn't seen before. Well paced with a great pair of MCs. Can't wait to hear the rest of the brother's stories. Excellent performance by a new narrator for me. I think someone got off too lightly at the end, but hopefully that part of the story will continue as the series unfolds.

Every new relationship has obstacles, it just turns out that ours involves my bumbling inexperience, an octogenarian naughty toy party, and being on the run in an RV with Aunt Tilly. When my biological father takes his homophobic views on a national platform, the only way to stand up for what I believe in is to claim my past and confront him. So now it's time to decide: Do I put the past behind me and walk away from AJ for good? Or face my biggest fear and fight for what's mine?

Lucy Lennox never fails to write beautiful stories and Michael Pauly could read the phone book and I'd swoon.

Like all of the Made Marian series, there's the perfect blend of sugar, spice and angst.
