Love struck me at the early age of five. The boy turned into a man, and I fell even deeper. Guy Webb had no idea my fragile heart belonged to him for so many years. He was too busy being my brother’s best friend and a star on the football field. He was my daydream and consumed every single thought, but he was always one step from my reach. Beartooth Ranch was our home. The rich ranch land raised us, fostered our laughs and losses, and even gained a new family member when Guy moved in for his sophomore year of high school.

A lovely, generation spanning tale of love, family and commitment, well told by Lacy Laurel and Jeremy York. There are times when Lacy Laurel talks a little to quickly for me, but she brings warmth and sincerity to her performance. I always love listening to Jeremy York, whose pace and expression always catches my attention and focus on the words spoken.
This is a story that will make you cry as well as laugh and feel happy. A lovely listen filled with characters I came to love. Molly, Amos and Guy are indeed, something special.

This book manages to straddle that difficult line between a seriously hot and also a sweet love story. Fan-worthy scenes are performed with conviction and great expressiveness by Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross who always bring warmth and depth to everything they narrate. Thomas and Maddie are a fab addition to the Black Light series. Listen and enjoy! I did xx

I was hired to apprehend a monster - a dom who'd been sentenced to life for killing his submissive. I've seen what he's capable of, and the images will haunt me forever. I swore I'd stop at nothing to put him behind bars. But then our plane back to the States crashes. We are the only two survivors. And the monster will make me wish I'd died along with the rest of them....

In fifth grade my teacher set us up with pen pals from a different school. Thinking I was a girl, with a name like Misha, the other teacher paired me up with her student Ryen. My teacher, believing Ryen was a boy like me, agreed. It didn't take long for us to figure out the mistake. And in no time at all, we were arguing about everything. The best take-out pizza. Android vs. iPhone. Whether or not Eminem is the greatest rapper ever. For the next seven years, it was us. She's the only one who keeps me on track, talks me down, and accepts everything I am.

This fantastic, detailed, excellently plotted and written story is brought wonderfully to our ears by Laurie Catherine Winkle and Maythew Holland. They skillfully narrate with confidence, conviction and true emotional subtlty, with a style I found totally riveting.
Penelope Douglas has, again, written a story which I just cannot put down. She writes books that are memorable and complex, characters that have depth and heft. All her books merit rereading and relistening, and I will definitely want to return to this one.

Single dad Andrew Beckwith has already devoted his life to one girl - and as far as he's concerned, she's all he needs. The inked, rough-around-the-edges bad boy left his reckless ways behind six years ago when his daughter Bell was born. When Bell's mother walked out of their lives, Andrew vowed never to let another woman close enough to hurt them again. Amelia isn't just another woman. She's an independent, smart, and savvy businesswoman who doesn't have time for sex, much less love. But when sharp-tongued Amelia and stubborn Andrew cross paths, sparks fly - and burn.

With an incredibly well written and developed plot, The First Taste brings us the joy that is Amelia and Andrew. Their seemingly unlikely pairing is perfect and Jesicca Hawkins has woven a plot that ensures that you have the time and space to really become involved and totally invested in their relationship. And, how hot is this book? 🔥🔥🔥!!
The narrators, Andi Arnt and Sebastian York are perfection. They capture and reveal Amelia and Andrew beautifully, while also bringing every other character to life, even the slime that is Reggie. Their nuanced and skillful narration is of such quality, that, as always, I was completely caught up in the story and just wanted it to go on..and on.
An exceptional book and audio! 💖💖

Featuring three stories, Overhaul, Enforcer and Rebel, we get an good introduction to the Brothers, many of whom are veterans. These are a slightly softer MC stories and touch on issues which some vets have experienced. Performed by Gideon Welles, he brings a warmth and sincerity to the characters, although some of the female characters fall into a kind of old fashioned depiction, particularly Madison.
Overall a good audio.

I've got dating horror stories that would curl your toes and singe your nose hairs, but none of them compare to the toad who started it all: Ellis Walker. He was the boy next door, the charming, infuriatingly gorgeous one who broke my heart and disappeared without a trace. Now, he's back and determined to throw my life into chaos, dredging up painful memories just when things were getting good. But the thing is there are always two sides to every story.

It’s every girl’s dream, getting rescued by a handsome stranger. When I woke up and saw Kit Green standing over me, I thought he was an angel. I didn’t see the dark wings. What is he doing out here all alone? I don’t question it at first. I’m too busy being blinded by intrigue and desire. If it weren’t for him, I’d be dead. I want to repay him with my body. But things quickly begin to not add up. This cabin is full of secrets. It’s cold outside, but I’m starting to think he came out here to burn for his sins.

This is quick listen, brining together a lost soul and someone who might be his salvation. I quite enjoyed this listen and was definitely invested in Kit regaining his sense of worth. The topic if PTSD is such a serious one that I am not sure the story really did it justice, though I did feel that Sky Corgan treated it seriously. Sophie James narrated the story well, differentiating between the two characters effectively.
