Free-spirited musician Letty Dillinger adheres to a strict “no strings attached” policy when it comes to men. After a wild night of unabashed sex in a fancy hotel room, she never expects to see the adventurous stud she dubs “Shades” again. When her all-girl rock trio books a tour at the last minute as the opening act for their archenemies, Letty’s shocked to discover she knows the competition’s new lead singer. Intimately.

Letty Dillinger, irreverent, free spirited, foul mouthed, very, very creative with words.... both writing lyrics and in her creative terms for body parts!

Shades/Todd... I loved him from the moment he entered the picture! Although he was considered a one night stand at the time, I knew there was more that needed to be told!!

I listen at work... and have had several looks this past couple of days because this book made me laugh out loud!!! I cannot tell you how much I loved this book! I cringed at the “terms of endearment” Letty used for body parts at first... but I WAS warned in the book notes in this!

@KendallGrey, you are amazing! I cannot wait to read the rest of these! And kudos to you for choosing @LessaLamb to narrate this!!! Although this is my first listen of hers, it definitely won’t be my last!!! What an incredible experience listening to her narrate these characters! She has a very distinctive voice and sounds like the rockstars she was portraying!

I love this book, and you will too!!!

The first time I saw Saxton Crawford we were in high school. He was the football star and I was just another invisible teenage girl. Now, he is a famous quarterback and the bane of my existence. And by bane, I mean his presence has brought back 10 years of secrets. Ones I'd thought I'd dealt with. The minute he walks back into my life I become that bumbling teenage girl all over again. I’m not having it! Even if the quarterback only has eyes for me. He's irresistible, too handsome for his own good, cocky, and carrying baggage no one wants.

I loved Sailor from the very beginning of this story! And I hated Andrea! Saxton I had to know more about... this was well written and although a love story, there was drama as well. I loved older Sailor as much as younger Sailor... still hated Andrea... and Saxton grew on me.

EL DuBois did a wonderful job with these characters and their development of this story line!!!

Sarah Sampino did an awesome job narrating them all as well.. I will definitely listen to her again!!!

The continuing story, bu Skye Warren, is so very absorbing! You think that things should settle down for Harper, but they sure don’t! Christopher and Sutton are gone, but not really. Christopher has hurt her badly. She’s loosing her mom, has lost both men, and now owns the library! The library becomes a symbol to her... she can’t lose it... she has to restore it. It feels like it’s all she has left. There is so much going on in her life, and it’s all bad.

I am not a spoiler person, so I’m not saying more, except that this is so worth the time it takes to read or listen to. Skye Warrens works speaks for itself, every time! This one is no different.

Erin Mallon was an amazing choice for narration of this story. Her ability to emote and make you feel everything each character feels, is such a draw for me! Every fear, everything that makes them angry, everything that makes them vulnerable... is in her voice! She is so good!

My story starts with a plunge into the cold water of Manhattan's harbor. A strong hand hauls me back onto the deck of the luxury yacht. Christopher was supposed to be my enemy. Instead he protects me with fierce determination. That should have been my happily ever after, but then Sutton appeared - ruthless and seductive. He doesn't care that my heart belongs to someone else, because he's determined to win. No matter the cost.

I love Skye Warrens writing! She is a must read for me and has been since I read my first of her books! This book,it’s so good! There is so much happening to so many characters in this story, that it keeps you wanting more. I love Harper, but she has so much going on in her life, even at age 15 she has seen and experienced so much! Her father and mother loved each other, maybe even still do.. although he has a shit way of showing it! They are divorced, but neither of them has found someone else who lasts... who fulfills what they need. There are a series of step parents and step children, and none of them last. Christopher is one of those step brothers, for a short period of time, but because of what he did for her on that first night they met, he becomes safety for her. She falls for him.. hard. Her father had plans they never knew about, and that messes everything up. Then comes Sutton, her mother’s illness, the library... and it all gets WAY more complicated!

There is so much angst and upheaval in this, and Skye Warren is so very good at making you want more, making you anticipate what will happen next! Erin Mallon could not have narrated this any better! Her character definition, and her ability to convey the hurt, anger, and every other feeling these characters have is spectacular! She has made my must listen list!

He warned me what would happen if he lost control. I didn't listen. He told me to stay away from him, that if I got too close he would not be able to stop himself. He would pin me down and take me so fiercely my throat would be sore from screaming before he finished wringing one savage, desperate climax after another from my helpless, quivering body. Part of me was terrified, but another part needed to know if he would truly throw me to the ground, mount me, and rut me like a wild animal, longer and harder than any human ever could.

She’s forbidden. Too young, too pure, and not mine. I’ll break all the rules to be with her. She belongs to me, even if she doesn't know it yet. He’s taboo. Too old, too experienced, and my stepfather. I’ll cross every line to be with him. He's not mine and never will be. It’s not about the danger of what's forbidden, it’s about the pleasure we get from it. All consequences be damned.

Quinn and Lincoln!!! This story is so, so good!!! This entire book held my attention from the very first paragraph. I was so enthralled with the story, and I wondered what the secrets were and how and when they would come out!

I had NO idea what the secrets were, or how they would come out! Jennifer Ann is a genius! This is so well written, and the story unfolds and secrets are revealed... an you will not believe what actually happens!!!!

Kiera Stevens is wonderful with the narration in this, as is Troy Duran!!! They will be a must listen for me!

This book was so very good!! I loved Rick even though he seems to be a spoiled brat who always wants to get his way, and someone who hops from bed to bed. However, he was just waiting for the right relationship I think and once he found it he is willing to put in the work to protect it! I enjoyed hearing about his life and how he evolves.

This was my first Bolton Hill narration. He’s easy to listen to and separates the characters well.

This was a really good series of books! I love the characters, and the story lines are good and easily readable! These characters are all formerly military, and they were all overseas and we all know people who have not been the same since they returned. This series tells the story of three of these men who returned with issues to deal with. They are very real and heart tugging. These men and the woman who love them deal with things the best way they can and love each other and their brotherhood family.

Amber Burns did a wonderful job with these books!

This was my first Gideon Welles narration, and I thought he did ok. There were a couple of places where there were repeat lines and a bit of background noise every so often, but he was easily understandable and his voice is pleasant.

This was an interesting story!! Marcos is a bit intense for my tastes, but it makes sense at the end... It was not an easy one for me, not because it’s a bad story! It’s not a bad story!

Meghan Kelly did a great job with this! The range of emotions in this are vast and I felt them all from her!
