The last thing Vaughan Hewson expects to find when he returns to his childhood home is a broken hearted bride in his shower, let alone the drama and chaos that comes with her.

Lydia Green doesn't know whether to burn down the church or sit and cry in a corner. Discovering the love of your life is having an affair on your wedding day is bad enough. Finding out it's with his best man is another thing all together. She narrowly escapes tying the knot and meets Vaughan only hours later.

Vaughan is the exact opposite of the picture perfect, respected businessman she thought she'd marry. This former musician-turned-bartender is rough around the edges and unsettled. But she already tried Mr. Right and discovered he's all wrong-maybe it's time to give Mr. Right Now a chance.

After all, what's wrong with getting dirty?

 

 

NARRATOR INTERVIEW

 

 


First, congrats to Andi for winning 2017 Audie award for her narration on Dirty in the Romance category.

Dirty is my first Kylie Scott novel and it was a good experience. I have her Flesh series on audio so that will most likely be my next listen. After listening to Dirty I’ll have to check out Scott’s Stage Dive series.

Dirty was a fun listen while doing yard work, too bad I wasn’t laying by a pool instead of mowing. Any story that starts off where the heroine is a run away bridge after finding out the groom to be is gay and the bride is the last to know is going have some drama. But when side bride finds herself hiding in the neighbor’s shower only to come face to face with the hot neighbor’s junk in her face when he turns on the water to the shower the story gets even more interesting.

The romance is fast, fun and hot. Andi Arndt puts her stamp on the story with her narration. She is a perfect match for these characters. Andi is the reason I gave Kylie Scott a try. That’s how a great narrator is important to books.

Bombshell by CD Reiss

Bombshell by CD Reiss

Grab the Kindle book for $3.99 and add the audio for only $1.99! I’m a big fan of C.D. Reiss. She writes great erotica romances. Bombshell is not erotica and that’s ok. I was detailed to see that I enjoyed it just as much as Reiss’s steamier titles. Not to say Bombshell doesn’t get steamy, it’s just a different kind of sexy. Bombshell is a romance between nanny and sexy Hollywood actor from Arkansas. Freaking Arkansas! (My home state) But this isn’t the that kind of story. Brad gets a big bombshell in the form of a 5-year-old daughter he didn’t know anything about, Nicole. Brad is the typical party guy in Hollywood so when he becomes a dad overnight he needs help. That’s where Cara, the […]

    Mia Dennett goes to a bar one evening, planning to meet up with the man she’s been seeing. He cancels after she arrives but ends up with Colin Thatcher, a man hired to abduct her. What ensues is a bizarre story told by several narrators.   I found the story interesting, especially its use of multiple characters to tell the story in the past and present. I never found it confusing and it was delivered coherently despite it not being linear storytelling, sort of like lots of asides before you get the whole tale.   Where the story fell flat for me is with the storytelling. Aside from Colin, most of the time the characters were telling the facts instead of allowing us […]


The Sexy One by Lauren Blakely

The Sexy One by Lauren Blakely

      A sexy and sweet romance about “forbidden” love between a hot single dad and his nanny. Simon and Abby make a great team in raising his young daughter. Their romance starts with instant-a-lust they neither will act on but over time the lust turns to love and they can’t fight it anymore. See what happens with Lauren Blakely brings these two fun characters together in The Sexy One. The dual narration really works for this title. Sebastian York is a favorite of mine and he has narrated many of Blakley’s titles and always does an amazing job. The Sexy One is the first I’ve listened to by Blakley that switches POVs from the male to female characters (all the others I’ve read […]
