I can not believe I’ve never heard of Samantha Young before! I downloaded this book on the off chance, had completely forgotten I’d purchased it. Decided to give it a go and WOW! One of the best romance books I’ve listened to in a long while!! The characters are so relatable and likeable, I need a Braden in my life! Fantastic story line, steamy bedroom antics... I give it a 10+ out of 10. Can’t wait to listen to more by SY.

I’m confused with this one - I think I enjoyed the story, although I do feel like there wasn’t enough depth to the characters, especially Kat who seemed quite cold and unknown to the listener, I did find the storyline a good and interesting twist. The narration however was terrible and I’ll definitely be put off by any other books I see narrated by the same person.

Well what can I say? She’s done it again - what a beautiful ending to a fantastic series, rounded off perfectly and although I’m sad to now finally say goodbye to Jesse and Ava I’m so happy the finale to their story was executed so well. 10/10!

I did enjoy this audiobook, it’s performed well by the narrators. The storyline is quite jumpy though and I feel like Lots was left out so the author could quickly get to the end which was a bit annoying. I would have liked to know more about Shadow, I liked the characters but a deeper connection would’ve been made had the author gave more time to it.

"If opposites attract, then I am nothing. Because you, you are everything." There's no easy road traveled to such an intense sentiment, one I never dreamt I'd feel. But I also never planned on Cannon Blackwell climbing aboard my tour bus.

Wow what can I say!? This was a complete chance buy as I saw the book for sale on amazon and audible narration was just a little extra. OMG I am in love with Cannon - and Lizzie is fantastic too. Great storyline, some brilliant sexy scenes. I laughed and cried and loved everything about this book. Kitty Bang does an awesome job with narration too and really nails the male parts. 10/10!

I am a huge fan of KA but didn’t find this book all that exciting and I actually struggled to finish it. It was quite slow, very repetitive at times and the story line wasn’t all that great. I normally love the character’s she creates but I didn’t connect with Brock or Tess all that much. It won’t put me off reading more of her books as I’m sure this was just a one off.

When everything you avoid, turns out to be exactly what you need. Easy and predictable, just the way he likes it, Blake Daniels flies through life the way he burns through women: on his terms, no regrets. With his fighting career in full swing, he's on the threshold of title contention. But when his training is compromised by injury, the stakes grow impossibly higher. The rage that fuels his punches also chips away at his focus, and he risks losing everything he cares about. He won’t let that happen. Not again.
