Ryder Rodgers had a plan. He was going to stride into the conference room, do the required song and dance over the next five days, and win the biggest contract of his career. But when he walked in and heard the voice of one of his competitors, all his plans were shot to hell. Harper Denton. She was always on top. In college. First in their class. Always using every advantage to edge him out to win the coveted positions. The only one who could beat him. His academic rival.

Great book with fabulous chemistry between the characters but it was a bit of an abrupt ending. I wanted an epilogue. Sexy and passionate. No cheating. Excellent performances from Andi Arndt and Sebastian York.

As an NHL player, relationships haven't been my thing. Shrouded in secrecy and speculation, they never last very long. But then that's what happens when you require an NDA before the first date. Until Charlene. She's like a firefly. She's elusive, and if you catch her she'll burn bright, but keeping her trapped dulls her fire and dims her beauty. I caught her. And as much as I might want to keep her, I'll never put the lid on her jar. Not at the risk of losing her. So I've let her set the rules in our relationship.

I have loved every book in this series. Each couple have been so well written and the stories have gripped me. This was the book I was desperate to read. This was the book that blew the others out of the water. Ms Hunting creates magic when she puts pen to paper and Pucked Love is pure romance with all the sexy and humour you would expect mixed in with some poignant moments. Darren and Charlene are my Top Couple.

I adored this book when I read it for the first time & I couldn’t wait to hear Rock & Hope brought to life through audio.

The narration is perfect. OMG... Troy Duran as Rock is just...wow ! And Noelle Bridges gives an awesome performance too.

Highly recommend.

It didn't take a week for 27-year-old Sal Casillas to wonder what she'd seen in the international soccer icon - why she'd ever had his posters on her wall or ever envisioned marrying him and having super-playing soccer babies.

Great sports romance with a forbidden element as Sal, our heroine, is a 27yr old soccer player and her coach , our hero, Kulti is 39 and just retired from playing professional soccer. She has crushed on him, idolised him, for most of her life but the dream doesn’t equal the reality...or does it?
Great story & slow burn chemistry which was narrated beautifully by Callie Dalton but I wanted to get to the hot stuff before the 97% mark. So maybe a little too slow burn for me. But still lovely.

It’s such a treat to revisit Jake, Chelsea and the gang. I loved their story in Sustained , it’s one of my most favourite books ever. You should read this after the other books in the series but you absolutely have to have read Sustained or it won’t make sense. The audiobook version is perfectly delivered by Sebastian Yorke.

I enjoyed this book overall but I did not enjoy the audio version. The male narrator spoke to quickly and his version of any female lines sounded really off. The female narrator was just ok. I switched over to reading it because the audio was spoiling my enjoyment of the book.

Great story though - I will definitely be following the series.

I enjoyed this audiobook. Great narration that flowed well
The story was well paced and if you love a second chance romance then this one ticks all the boxes.
Eve was 18 when she & Billy spent 3 months together, falling in love. Events happened and their relationship ended. Fast forward 12 years and Eve needs Billy’s help as she’s in danger. But can they ever be friends again, let alone lovers?
Lots of drama, action & a delicious slow build to some passionate moments.

HEA? Yes - but I would have liked an epilogue.
Cheating? No.
Standalone? Yes, can be read as standalone despite being in a series.

Grant Malone is not the reason I moved back to Sunnyville - at least that’s what I tell myself. Yet, those parting words I said to him back in third grade ring in my ears every time a towns-person brings up one of the Malone boys. I thought time had healed my wounds. I was wrong. Nothing could have prepared me for how I felt when I finally saw him again. Twenty years does a lot to turn a boy into a man. One who hits all my buttons - sexy, funny, attractive, and a police officer.

This was a much more emotional book than I thought it would be. Secondary characters are great & I’m looking forward to Grady and Grayson’s stories.
Grant is a gorgeous hero & Joe Arden reads the character superbly. Took me a while to get into Maxine Mitchell’s style of reading but once I did I enjoyed it. As a heroine, Emmy will break your heart and equally make you want to shake her to see what potential there is for her and Grant. The girl will run when she can but the reasons why are devastating.
Triggers? Yes, domestic abuse, child sexual abuse.

This was my first audible book and what a way to start. Christian Grey is so complex and it was great getting his viewpoint. Some things made him dip in my estimation but overall I’m still smitten with Mr Grey.
