I don’t know why I’m surprised, because Kennedy Ryan’s writing always blows me away, after I’ve been pulled into the story so much, it feels like you there the story. You can’t get story out your head, I worked with victims, not victims, survivors for many years. Kennedy still me shedding tears in so many parts. Thank god the parts with August and Iris make me smile. I thought I was reading a sports romance, and it did involve sports. Baseball was a subject that brought Iris and August together.
The larger story arc opens your eyes, Kennedy's books often helps us to open our eyes to a wider issue, and has done so spectacularly that has made very difficult for me not give away spoilers.
I will say this book doesn’t leave your mind for days after and is clunking away in mine. This is not for the fainthearted, but is a special book to me. Five stars is not enough for writing this good.
After reading the book and now having brought to life with the narrators I can only say it still made me cry Perfection.

I really have loved this duo, but most of book two takes place in England as Audrey starts work at the National Gallery. Audrey is still cannot get Dylan out of mind.
So before long Audrey and Dylan play at being friends, unfortunately the sexual tension between is so hot it doesn’t take long before its friends with benefits.
I loved Audrey she was so confident, and knew she wanted and loved Dylan.
Unfortunately Dylan keeps putting walls between them.
I am so excited that the Audiobook is released before the book, so I couldn’t resist buying it. I have to say the pleasure of listening to Shane East as Dylan is the icing on the cake.

Moon Promise is about a daughter of a werewolf king, unfortunately she is unable to shift. So Kensington now lives in Chicago and is a renowned P.I. When her father calls and asked her to go and help The Wild Pack find a young woman who has disappeared.
Kensington arrives and to keep her secret, she has to withstand the Alpha power when the men keep trying to influence her to their way of thinking.
This is an interesting tale as we see how Kenzie uses her skill to find Raven, while dealing with werewolf politics. Kenzie finds herself attracted to Drake one of the pack protectors.
This book has it all, mystery, murder, love and jealousy which caused all the trouble in the first place. I loved Drake and Kenzie together, it was the first time she could be herself. This is a great start to a new series which has all the right qualities Love, Jealousy, and all the ingredients for plenty of actions mentioned. I now have to start on Book Two when released.

This is book one in a new series set in the future, when space travel is an everyday experience. Unfortunately for Bit an indentured servant life has been horrendous with all her previous owners, and now she has been won in a card by a young man Galen.
Suddenly she is on her way to a freighter spaceship filled with men. Fortunately Galen’s brother Jack is the captain and he can see how frightened she is. Bit is taken back when her room is found for her with a lock on the inside.
This is centered around Bit and how she reacts to only kindness that is shown to her. This is an interesting start to a new series in which there a battle and many insights to the members of the crew. A short listen at only 3hours 57mins but with plenty fitted in giving me a taste to look forward to book two.

As always after listening or reading one of Aly Martinez book it is the emotions that you go through with the characters. We start with Rita married to Greig for 7 years suddenly finding out that her husband has had a sixth month affair with one of the practice nurse where they both work.
Rita is devastated and decides to divorce Greig , but he wants her back. The more she finds out the less she wants him. Suddenly to get rid of husband who is grabbing her at the practice fund raiser. When a handsome man comes towards them, she pretends to know him and he agrees.
Suddenly she is friends with Tanner a chief whose company donates the food for the fundraiser for the children.
Both Tanner and Rita have there private things they haven’t come to terms with.
This has drama, love, happiness all the range that Aly does so well. I absolutely loved Tanner I though he was a sweetie. Rita lost all her self confidence and was frightened to be in love again. It took a lot from Tanner to help her love again
NARRATED BY TROY DURAN AND EMMA WILDER were excellent pulling me , I never was jolted from the story once by the narrators, Which for me is a win win

This book introduces a world where all supernatural groups are now living in reservations controlled by the human government.
Our story is about a young women Samantha who has been ostracized by her own people the fae. Sam is a Void which she has no magical ability, but can drain others magic.This is Sam an introduction to the world and her life which isn’t very pleasant.
A good start to a new series that set the scene off the world Sam and her few friends live in. Narration is all from Sam's points of view, and felt more like someone reading rather than lots of different voices. I still enjoyed listening and look forward to book 2

When Isabella arrives at a hospital to continue her nurse training, all she hears is Dr Roman is a miracle worker and saves lives no one else could.
Roman notices Isabella straight away, and tries to keep his distance. Fortunately for us Dr Love fails and we have a hot romance between Isabella and Roman which soon becomes a serious relationship. This is an unusual book but I enjoyed every minute. This starts as an ordinary romance until Isabella discovers Roman is a werewolf.
When the local pack starts causing trouble in the Bayou, we have action and adventure. Working with Isabella, Henrietta a voodoo queen as they try to save all patients in the hospital.
I didn’t notice the narration, which is a compliment because I wasn’t pulled from the story once.
This review is about book two, where life is good for Roman and Isabella who have moved in together after all the upset at the of the last book. When they are kidnapped and turned over the Werewolf Council Headquarters. Once there they are separated and they send Roman off to hunt an ancient enemy to find a cure for the previous leader of the council while Isabella is held hostage . In this book we meet more of the supernatural community and Isabella holds her own while among the Werewolves.. I’ve really enjoyed these books and hope there are more In the future.

This is the first book in one of the most imaginative series I’ve read for a while, featuring Absidy a twenty year old student waiting for her family to meet for christmas break. When she finds out that her older sister has gone missing she is determined to find even if she is in black space.
Dressed as a teenage boy called Lewis she ends up as a trainee chief on a small ship with a small crew. Nothing goes right as the ship is haunted and its Absidy sees ghosts. So the adventure starts and takes directions you in directions you can’t imagine. This is a step in the future that is haunting and frightening at times. When Absidy went on board she never imagined she would have deal with Monsters around every corner. The only good thing as far Absidy knows is that Mase knows her secret, and soon they start getting hot and heavy. I'm not giving anything else away, I don't want to spoil it for anyone.I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this audiobook, it kept glued to my headphones.

 Clem wakes up after a vicious attack that leaves with amnesia and remembers nothing about her life before. While trying to find out more information about her past. Clem visit a tattoo parlor out to speak to the owner about a tattoo she has. When meets Ed the artist, she encounters nothing but hostility. Clem is amazed to finds out Ed is her ex and she broke his heart.

Clem has no memory of their relationship or any feelings. Ed is fantastic helping Clem even though she is different from before. The new Clem is more forthright and speaks her mind and is lovely and snarky. The story is told from Clem’s pov, and wonderfully done.

This book blew me away, Andi Arnt was fantastic as Clem, your pulled into the story and can’t stop listening. This is one seating listen, walking around with earphones all day. The love interest is sexy swoony Ed the absolute best book boyfriend. A five star listen. I loved it. This is an Audible Original, the book will be release later in the year.
