I likes this book!! Lana is a mercenary.. it’s not what she would have chosen for herself, but she needs money to live. She has a large contract offered... and as much as she doesn’t like it.... she may have to kill someone.

Sadie Moss is talented and has given us a wonderful story of the lives of paranormal individuals that is a wonderful listen! It’s a great storyline, and the narration by Heather Firth, is excellent!!!!

I liked this!!!

Lisa Becker has written an excellent story in Starfish. I lived Marin from the beginning! And Brad as well!

Marin has been given an assignment as an intern with a PR company... one she definitely didn’t ask for or expect. She will be going on tour with a band...

Brad, one of the band members, takes notice of her from the beginning. He does everything in his power to get to know her.

This story was an excellent listen. The story was interesting, and very good! And the narration by Erin Mallon and Sebastian York.. was perfect!!!

Good book!

This is a great paranormal book! The characters are interesting, the narration is spot in, and it’s just good!

Sasha has felt different her whole life, she sees things that others think she is crazy. She has a boyfriend who has been her life, but he doesn’t understand her either. She has other paranormals after her, wanting her to join them... but she doesn’t know why. She is drawn to Stefan...

Stefan is the boss. He leads a group of paranormals. He is drawn to Sasha, strongly. He is not sure about her, but knows there is something about her. She has power... he should stay away.

Victoria Mei does a great job with this story and all of the characters!

This is excellent!!!!

I love the story Gianna Gabriela told in Just Because if You!

Christian works hard, but doesn’t like what he’s doing. He played football in high school and thought he’d play after high school... but circumstances prevented him from doing so. He list that and the girl he loved, who was the love of his life, because of a decision he made before he met her.

Amari is back in her hometown as the elementary school principal. She has been gone for six years, and she’s worried that the boy who broke her will still be there. She has no idea why he broke everything off, why everything that they planned fell apart. But her new job is why she’s here, and she wants to do well.

Everything about this story hits right in the feels! It’s a great listen! Lacy Laurel and Matthew Cohn are excellent at what they do and did wonders for these characters!!

Getting to know Honey better!!

This is very good!

Rebel is a Navy seal. His team is set up by their handler, Nina..only he and Theo survive.

Fallon has taken care of her sister since their adoptive parents died. Josie is sick and needs a kidney transplant. They sign her up with a private company to help find a match.

Jelly Moore did a wonderful job creating characters that are interesting and deep. Rebel has been distrustful and angry. He feels responsible for his teams deaths.

This book is definitely worth the listen!! Brad Gilliam’s voice is pleasant and easy to listen to.

L.A. Cotton!!! This is excellent!

I am a little bit speechless after finishing this book... I loved this book so much...

Eva has had a difficult life and at 18 she signs on to travel wiling Black Hearts Still Beat, a rock band the boy she has fallen in love with us a part of. But Rafe ghosted her in book one and she has no idea why. She goes in with trepidation because, from the time she arrives, Rafe treats her poorly. She doesn’t know what she did....

Rafe and his brother Levi also had a hard life too... But no one knows why, they’ve never shared any of it with anyone. When Rafe brought Eva to a party in book 1, Levi is drawn to her and Rafe backs off, he never tells him that Eva is his. He takes care of Levi and Levi has been a mess... the record company asks Eva to tour with them to improve their image.

What happens is hard, volatile, heartbreaking.... and will make you want more and more of these characters and their stories. I loved book one, and this one... broke me I think!!! L.A. Cotton has done such an amazing job of creating characters and situations that make you want to listen, make you want to be a part of their lives. I’m anxious for more!

Sarah Puckett and Michael Norman Johnson are fantastic for this! Couldn’t have picked better narrators!

This was an intriguing story!

I really enjoyed this story! Lennox was a teen heartthrob.. but he has secrets in his past that have been buried a long time and he doesn’t want them to be out.

Rachel is a graphic designer who works on several different projects. She sees Lennox at her daughters school and remembers idolizing him as a teen.

Their story is a really good one, and there are some twists that you’ll never expect. I recommend you listen!!

Hannah Baker is fantastic in this!!
