Review: Walk Through Fire

Walk Through Fire Walk Through Fire by Kristen Ashley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Millie Cross made the difficult decision to not stand in the way of the love of her life, Logan Judd's future happiness, too bad she didn't talk to Logan about it before she cut him loose. When she crosses his path 20 years later, the anger and resentment Logan feels toward Millie hasn't lessened one degree.

#Suspense #Romance #SteamyReads

When Millie seeks him out to give him "closure" his pent up rage boils over leading to an explosive confrontation, but whenever there are strong feelings involved there's passion also and that hasn't dimmed with time either!

Soon, Millie and Logan's emotions swing wildly from hatred to sexually charged encounters. Millie still finds it painful to tell Logan the real reason she left him and when she finally breaks down and confesses the truth to him all bets are off as Logan tries to heal both their hearts.

Kate Russell performs the narration on this audiobook which in pure KA fashion clocks in at over 17 hours and Kate Russell's reading of each of the many characters in this book is just awesome.

I highly recommend this book and any of the other books in the Chaos series.

Review: Raven

Raven Raven by Scarlett Finn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This story starts off with a bang! Good for us listeners bad for Zara Bandini, who's first date with Tim ends up being his last, literally, as he is shot dead while kissing her! Talk about a buzz kill.

Raven comes to her rescue, but is he really a good guy or just using Zara to get her to spill the goods on her boss?

So begin Zara's spiral into deceit, intrigue and the hidden motives of her boss Grant.

This is such a good book and I enjoyed it very much. This is the first audiobook that I've listened to from both Scarlett Finn, the author and Tieran Wilder who is the narrator, Tieran did a good job voicing the many different characters, the only thing that bothered me was her voicing of Zara when she was excited, whether she was in bed making love or if she was in danger fearing for her life, it was very screechy. She just needs to tone it down a bit.

I can't wait for the next installment!

Review: Initiation

Initiation Initiation by Rayna Noire
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This rating is for the Kindle version of this book! I had to sit on writing this review for a couple of days so I could formulate my thoughts on this book, the actual book is 4 stars, it’s a well-written story about Leah, a teenage girl who just so happens to be a witch. Leah has trouble embracing her Wiccan side, but when she’s thrust back in time, a time when witches were burned at the stake, her innate abilities save her in more ways than one. Sounds good, doesn’t it? What ruined the book for me was the narrator, she takes way too many pauses and I just found her delivery boring and I kept drifting off, I can’t imagine this audiobook keeping the attention of a young teen, not a good sign. Considering that I listened to a sample before requesting this audiobook, I had to go back and relisten to the sample, and yep it has the same problem, how did I overlook it? Purely because of the writing of Rayna Noire, the sample was so interesting I didn’t pay as much attention to the delivery by the narrator as I should have, but when you start listening long term the problem becomes glaringly obvious and I gave up on listening to it.

Luckily, Pagan Eyes is available on Kindle and I cared enough about finishing the story to buy and download the book and I highly recommend it, not only for teens but anyone who likes a good urban fantasy or paranormal book.

Review: Outbreak

Outbreak Outbreak by Timothy W. Long
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Buckle up because there's no slowing down with this story! Navy machinist Jackson Creed has been floating through his Navy career doing the bare minimum, that comes to an abrupt end when a virus quickly overtakes the crew onboard the USS McClusky. Jackson has the good fortune to run across Marine Sergeant Joel Kelly and together they manage to make it off the ship only to discover San Diego hasn't been spared the outbreak either.

Their only mission is to find supplies and stay alive, and try to make it north, they meet many characters good and bad along the way, this book has it all humor, heartbreak, suspense, in other words, it's perfect!

Todd Menesses narrates and I'm still in awe of his ability to voice so many different characters. He definitely has a part in making this a 5-star read!

Review: Impact Earth: Symbiosis

Impact Earth: Symbiosis

Impact Earth: Symbiosis by Timothy W. Long

My Good Reads rating: 5 of 5 stars

This audiobook is fantastic! I have to admit though I almost felt like I needed a flow chart in the beginning to keep track of everyone in this book! But don't worry by the end you really feel connected to each and every one of the five main characters in this audiobook. It also took a little getting used to the author jumping between characters, but once I got a feel for each character, I honestly enjoyed how the story was told multiple points of view, it made total sense. What really helped was the narration by Todd Menesses, but we'll talk more about that later. So, in this ensemble cast, you have Brian, the overweight pimply faced 16-year-old kid. Elise, an abused woman just starting to rebuild her life. Sean, the big, kind-hearted divorcé. Martin, a crotchety old veteran dying of cancer and last but not least, Victor, the family man.

While the entire population of Seattle is caught up in an alien invasion, these five characters are fighting not one but two alien invasions. Talk about sensory overload! I'm not one for spoilers, so I'll leave it at that. Timothy W. Long really takes his time building this story, so expect this tale will roll out over several books because I really feel like book one is just the beginning! Speaking of that, I hate to be a Debbie Downer, but when I went to Long's website to see when the next book in the series was scheduled for release, I looked high and low and found zilch, so I'm assuming it will be awhile before book two is released... sigh.

OK, so let's talk about narrator Todd Menesses, I dare anyone to tell me that narrators are not actors of the highest caliber and that one person is voicing ALL of the characters major and minor! Genius! Each character has their own distinct voice and not once did I have to question which character was talking and trust me it's quite a feat to keep that many characters straight!

Amazing story, awesome narration!

Review: Settling Up

Settling Up Settling Up by Eryn Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is my type of rom-com, I found the inner musings of neurotic Lauren, amusing! If a book can make me laugh out loud, I know it's something special and this book has many of those such moments!

30 something mathematician Lauren has a list for absolutely everything, a list of where she should be monetary wise, a list of where she should be career wise, and an extreme vetting list for prospective husbands! It's no wonder the stress of it all has caused her to start losing her hair, it's enough to make me want to pull mine out!

Lauren usually talks out her problems at the blackjack table of the local casino, but when her regular dealer is a no show, she starts up an unlikely platonic relationship with the tattooed new dealer Mack, it has to be a platonic relationship, because Mack has absolutely zero of the requirements on Lauren onerous list.

Instead, Lauren's relegates Mack to the infamous "friend zone" and uses Mack, a recent widow, as a sounding board for her dating life and in the process they start to share parts of their life outside of the casino, in essence becoming BFF's. When Lauren thinks she's found her perfect match on paper, she starts to question if perfection is what she's looking for, can Lauren look past her list and see the perfect fit in front of her?

Great story? Check! Great narration? Check! This book is awesome, start to finish!

With fires burning on the horizon, mass evacuations underway, zombies roaming the countryside, and in-fighting among the adults on the bus creating tension, Josh has never felt so helpless.

Review: For 100 Days

For 100 Days For 100 Days by Lara Adrian
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed Lara Adrian's paranormal romance series Midnight Breed and knowing that this new series was a contemporary romance, I was intrigued but also a little apprehensive about her foray into more traditional romance and so this audiobook languished on my wish list for over a month before I finally purchased it. I lament that hesitation, I should have known better! Lara knows what she's doing and I loved this book!

Avery Ross’ apartment building is being renovated and she is facing eviction,

working at a local bar, she lucks upon a patron whose in need of a house sitter, Avery gratefully accepts the four-month assignment. Unbeknownst to her the apartment is in a swanky high rise. Once she arrives at the building she literally runs right into Nick Baine who lives in the building's penthouse, soon sparks fly, and they both fall hard, but Avery, in addition to not telling Nick she's just housesitting, she has secrets about her past that she can't bring herself to tell him. Nick craves absolute trust, but he's not above teaching Avery how to trust him through the use of bondage, but he senses that Avery is still hiding something from him, let the drama begin!

Warnings, this book is sexually explicit, has light BDSM elements, and has a cliffhanger, either I'm getting used to cliffhangers or writers are getting better at closing a story line so you don't feel cheated. Either way, I didn't mind it and there was just enough of a tease to make you excited for the next book, good job Lara!

This audiobook has superior audio quality and the narration by Summer Morton is excellent, buy or credit you'll be happy.

Obsession By Ann Mayburn

obsessionbtbanner obsession5 Synopsis This is a STANDALONE dark(ish) erotic romance with insta-obsession between two damaged soulmates(no cheating-HEA-no cliffhanger) Hannah All my life, I've only wanted one thing: someone to love me and someone who will let me love them in return. This seems like a simple request, but I was born to parents who wished I had died of childhood leukemia, instead of my younger sister, and who have ignored me no matter how much I've tried to please them. I'm starved for affection, addicted to the feeling when someone cares about me, which has led to a love life filled with either boys I've scared off, or men all too eager to take advantage of me. I thought I would never find a man who could feed my craving for constant attention--and then I met Leo. He fills the void inside of me, haunts my dreams, and does things to me in bed that are so good, they're probably illegal. I can only pray I don't scare him off once he figures out just how needy I really am. Leo There are very few people in this world I've ever been able to form an emotional attachment to, but the moment I saw Hannah, I knew she was mine. We were bound together by fate, our paths crossing first as children, then as adults, each time marking me. She doesn't know it but I've been watching her for a year now, studying her, stacking the deck so when I do make my move, there's no way she'll ever escape me. But my world is a harsh, cruel place, and the cartel I work for demands absolute loyalty and trust...a loyalty Hannah has yet to earn in the dangerous eyes of my employers. There is only one way to ensure Hannah's absolute devotion, and I hope that she doesn't hate me forever when she finds out that not only have I brainwashed her into loving me, but that I don't feel an ounce of guilt about doing it. She's mine, only mine, and I'm keeping her forever. Warning: This story features a rough and demanding Dom who's completely devoted to bringing his baby girl pleasure through such unconventional means as spanking, mild BDSM, D/S, roleplaying, and various other forms of wicked kinkery.

With over forty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she's been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened. From a young Ann has had a love affair with books would read everything she could get her hands on. As Ann grew older, and her hormones kicked in, she discovered bodice ripping Fabio-esque romance novels. They were great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she's never looked back. Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her 'sexy space' and has accepted that her Muse has a severe case of ADD.

Review: No Second Chances

No Second Chances No Second Chances by Marissa Farrar
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I'm a pushover for romance stories that deal with the military and the struggles of veterans, add in suspense and this audiobook is fantastic!

Gabi Weston and Cole Devonport meet at school as teenagers, both have had a rough upbringing, Gabi as the motherless child of an alcoholic father and Cole who has been brought up in the foster care system. Gabi is somewhat aloof, but eventually, Cole breaks down the understandable and natural defenses that Gabi has built up to protect herself and they become, first friends and then young lovers. At eighteen a naive Cole succumbs to the temptations of easy money and the resulting conflict ends up pulling them apart and setting them on separate paths, Cole to prison and Gabi into the military.

Eleven year later, fate brings them both back to their hometown, one broken in spirit, the other broken in body. The question is, can they overcome their past and help heal each other, can they have a second chance at love? Some nefarious characters from their past throw up some serious roadblocks, but no darn roadblock is gonna stand in the way of Cole!

A reformed Cole is determined to stay on the straight and narrow and get his girl back!

Excellent writing by Marissa Farrar and storytelling by Julia Farmer make this gem of a book shine. I look forward to more from this author and narrator.

Sift By LD Davis

Sift Cover.jpg

The summer I graduated from high school, I raced out of my small Virginian town to seek my culinary dreams in the big city. I couldn’t afford New York City, though, so I settled in Philadelphia. The City of Brotherly Love wasn’t The Big Apple, but it had its charms and pockets of culinary splendor. I hadn’t minded because it was only temporary. After culinary school, I planned to do as I’d been dying to do since I was a little girl and roam the earth and splurge on its fruits.

More than five years later, I was still in Philly, living with the same roommate I’d had when I had first moved, working as a pastry chef in a bakery across the bridge in New Jersey, and I had Cade. Caden was my on and off again boyfriend of four years. I loved him, even when I hated him.

Our relationship was hot and cold, hard and fast, sexy and heartbreaking. It wasn’t until I was with Caden that I understood that passion could be just as terrible as it was beautiful. I didn’t know until him that passion could make you burn as well as burn you. Being with Caden was like being addicted to thrill-seeking adventures. You know there is a danger in it, and it makes your heart race and adrenaline pump into your body. Sometimes you nail it and the rush is breathtaking and amazing. Sometimes you miss, and there is fear and regret in your heart as you fall to the unforgiving ground.

After one particularly hard fall, I went home to Virginia for a long weekend. That was where I became reacquainted with my brother’s old college friend Connor. That’s when I learned that passion could be a slow, sweet burn.

And it could incinerate me and turn me to ashes.
