    Bryn Kelly moved from Austin to New York a few months ago to chase her dream of opening her fashion design store. When a friend sets up a meeting for her with business tycoon Aaric Christos, she’s got more at stake than her business start up. See, she knew him from years ago when he was a lowly mechanic in Austin with a serious crush on her. It’s been eight years and part of her doesn’t want him to remember her given that she turned him away.   Even though Evan’s heroines always seem a bit more immature than they should be, I’m always drawn to her books because of the storytelling and her complex alpha personalities. It helps that we periodically get […]

      read it, track reviews are a way  to track books for my reading challenges and they will be super short After finally popping my Kristen Ashley cherry with The Deep End, I couldn’t wait to listen to more in Honey series. Lizbeth Gwynn brought all the sexy and emotions with her narration of The Farthest Edge.

You’ll need batteries, batteries, batteries or someone to help you get sweaty 30% story, 70% jacking, milking, sucking and any other ways of getting a hot alpha sub off in a playroom or bedroom. (Not that I minded at all!) Smoking narration to bring melt your ear buds You’ll wish you were part of […]

                          I listened to The Beautiful Ashes as a “reread” right before getting The Sweetest Burn.  I was able to get both in digital audio from the library. I was excited to see how they progressed with finding the second artifact. I expected Ivy and Adrian to learn and grow in their pursuit and to further their relationship as they worked together to save the world. These things sort of happened. Neither Ivy or Adrian seemed to learn or grow very much. Ivy’s whining about everything at Zach and her internal rambling were annoying. Adrian at least spent his time preparing Brutus for their mission. Both of them are so childish in their actions […]

    Homicide Lieutenant Samantha (Sam) Holland and her partner Freddie Cruz are called to a scene where a body was found on the banks of the Anacostia River. As they begin their investigation, agents suddenly show up, surround Sam and whisk her away without explanation. A serious and credible threat was received against the Vice President’s family and that means more than just Sam and son, Scotty.   This was a solidly interesting case that went in some strange directions. I liked that the resolution came about through dogged police procedurals involving the entire team. It was engaging and allowed me to follow the case and make my own deductions that turned out to be on target. That works for me in a mystery. […]

               I love this Rough Riders series where the club is a family who protects their own and others in trouble.  Each book features a different couple. Sexy times are hot! Because they are protecting others, abuse and other illegal acts often happen within the stories. Laura Kaye has a way of making the sexual tension build as well as the action / suspense. Generally while the characters have had tough times or made mistakes, they are strong and smart, both the males and females. I appreciate not having whiny or entitled main characters. Ride Rough is a second chance romance. This couple, Maverick and Alexa were together when they were young.  Now Alexa is in trouble and Maverick […]

             I have read all the books in the Kinsey Millhone series   starting way back in the 1980s. Mystery is a favorite genre of mine, especially as a palate cleanser because of its action and facts. Of course, emotions get involved as well, but Kinsey is very straight forward. She leads an organized, simple life. Her relationships are few and somewhat limited. The only other audio I have listened to was the short stories, Kinsey & Me. So I decided to try this on audio, too. I really love Kinsey and recommend you read  the books in order. The writing of characters and world is generally excellent, although since this series is set in the 1980s there was a slip-up with […]

    Evie Abbey is a highly successful features talent agent at Price & Dickles in Los Angeles. She meets Carter Aaron, a television literary talent agent at CT Management, when they both attend a costume party hosted by mutual friends and they’re the only singles. Turns out they really clicked, even though they worked for competing agencies. When circumstances play a cruel joke and they end up not only working together but in direct competition for the same job, things get…well, complicated.   What I really loved about this story was its authenticity. Most of us know how cutthroat the Hollywood industry can be so there’s no way to avoid having two successful people not have a little larceny in their souls. Evie and […]

                 This author / narrator combo has grasped me again and won’t let go. The classification may be contemporary romance but it feels like romantic suspense. I am in tense limbo the entire time I listen. Or heck, when I am not listening. I keep waiting for the bad guys to be …. bad. My head plays every worst case scenario. In His Hands is especially emotional since there is a cult “church” involved which is a real trigger for me. I dislike people using religious beliefs to be unkind or worse. I’m enjoying how the narrator has captured the southern dialects, as well as the other characters from various parts of the world who inhabit this small town […]
