Audio Review ~ The Scribe ~ Elizabeth Hunter

Audio Review ~ The Scribe ~ Elizabeth Hunter

How much did I love The Scribe? Let me count the ways. LOL I’ve been intending to read EHunter since 2013 when I challenged myself to read the attending authors of TFEIC. (that’s The First Ever Indie Conference) Now, I’m mentally smacking myself for having waited so long. The Scribe was so compelling and the fact Zachary Webber narrated it only made the story that much richer. Ava is such an interesting character. When we meet her she’s in a session with a psychiatrist because she’s looking for answers to why she has always felt different. The psychiatrist sends her to Istanbul where he believes there is someone who can help her. Once there, something is set into motion that […]

Audio Review ~ The Rogue Not Taken ~ Sarah MacLean, Justine Eyre

Audio Review ~ The Rogue Not Taken ~ Sarah MacLean, Justine Eyre

The Rogue Not Taken was in my introduction to both SMacLean and JEyre and the meeting was a pure delight! SMacLean crafted a story that was riveting, humorous, exciting, heartbreaking and heartwarming while JEyre brought the characters to life. I’m eager to continue this series in audio. Highlights Plot I really enjoyed the circumstances under which Sophie and Eversley meet. SMacLean employed both humor and heartbreak in their meeting and in their subsequent journey together. There was also quite a bit of suspense due to the fact that Sophie was gallivanting around England unchaperoned. All these elements were well balanced and made for an exciting story as both Sophie and Eversley worked towards what they wanted in life – to […]

Audio Review ~ Untouchable ~ Kresley Cole

Audio Review ~ Untouchable ~ Kresley Cole

Untouchable revolved around characters – Murdoch and Daniela – that I didn’t know much about. I certainly felt for them considering the hurdles their relationship presented. While I enjoyed the story, it wasn’t my favorite in the series. Highlights Characters Murdoch Wroth, previously known for his playboy ways, had a kink thrown into his sex life when he became a vampire. When he’s blooded by his bride, Daniela, his situation doesn’t improve. That’s because Daniela, being a Valkyrie/Icere fae, can’t be touched. Murdoch thinks this won’t be a problem – he’ll simply return to his playboy ways. But as he and Daniela spend time together he realizes that once you find your bride, no one else will do. My issue […]

Audio Review ~ Kiss of a Demon King ~ Kresley Cole

Audio Review ~ Kiss of a Demon King ~ Kresley Cole

It’d been awhile since I visited the Immortals After Dark series and I’m so happy I kicked off my 2020 audio year with Kiss of a Demon King. While Kiss of a Demon King wasn’t as action-packed as other installments, I did enjoy seeing Rydstrom find and fight for his fated female. And Sabine was an absolute delight! Much of their repartee was quite comedic. Visiting with others from the Lore was a bonus. Highlights: Characters Rydstrom has spent centuries waiting for his fated one as well as the return of his kingdom. He’s know for being steady and good, so being straddled with Sabine as his female understandably gives him pause. Sabine is the Queen of Illusions, a sorceri allied with […]

Audio Review ~ P.S. It’s Always Been You: Part 1 ~ Lauren Blakely #AudibleOriginal

Audio Review ~ P.S. It’s Always Been You: Part 1 ~ Lauren Blakely #AudibleOriginal

P.S. It’s Always Been You Part 1 is the first third of a novel by LBlakely and released as an Audible Original. It nicely set up the backstory between Presley and Hunter as well as their present circumstances and what has brought them together again. I love the premise of this story and I’m a sucker for second chance romance. I’m pulling hard for these two even if Hunter did a sound job of breaking Presley’s heart years ago. There’s still crackling chemistry between them and I’m eager to see how things develop as they work in such close proximity. See, Presley is an art historian and Hunter is best described as a thrill seeker. Together they’re working on cataloging […]

#OctobeRec Fest Review #4 ~ Lucifer’s Daughter ~ Eve Langlais

#OctobeRec Fest Review #4 ~ Lucifer’s Daughter ~ Eve Langlais

Welcome to OctobeRec Fest. I started this as a nod to Oktoberfest (books & beer…heaven, am I right?!?) so I’ll spending the month of October reading a few of the many, many books I’ve procured thanks to you, my blogging friends. Title: Lucifer’s Daughter Author: Eve Langlais Narrator: Rebecca Estrella Recommended by: Melanie @Hot Listens Lucifer’s Daughter wasn’t my first Eve Langlais read but I’d met Muriel in another book and really wanted her story. Melanie really liked ELanglais and recommended this series so I gave it a go in audio. I adored Muriel’s story and REstrella’s narration for the most part. Highlights: Characters Muriel is quite entertaining. She’s strong, independent, smart, honest, a virgin… hehe Yeah, her dad is not […]

#OctobeRec Fest Review #2 ~ Hounded ~ Kevin Hearne

Welcome to OctobeRec Fest. I started this as a nod to Oktoberfest (books & beer…heaven, am I right?!?) so I’ll spending the month of October reading a few of the many, many books I’ve procured thanks to you, my blogging friends. Title: Hounded Author: Kevin Hearne Recommended by: Kimba @Caffeinated Reviewer, Melanie @Hot Listens Okay, so Hounded could be considered a little outside my usual MO. I mean, there’s no romance. 😉 But Kimba raved about it. So did Melanie. And, there was my blogger wife as well. 😉 So I gave it a go and it was everything they made it out to be. Highlights Characters Oh my do I love Atticus. As a multi-millennia old druid, he’s seen a […]

Audio Review ~ Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words ~ Tara Sivec & Andi Arndt

Audio Review ~ Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words ~ Tara Sivec & Andi Arndt

Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words was, in a word, hysterical. If you’ve read Tara Sivec before, you know you’re going to get laugh-out-loud humor. And even though Heidi’s story was a joint effort with Andi Arndt, there was plenty of humor. Seriously. Heidi is a good girl. She’s not a prude and the word prim comes to mind but that feels derogatory. I think she’s been sheltered and has always done what was expected of her. A good girl. So when she finds herself at a crossroads, thanks to being fired from her position as a kindergarten teacher, she chooses the road less traveled. Now, that wasn’t intentional on Heidi’s part but it was a hilarious journey. And you’ll […]

Audio Review ~ White Knight ~ Meghan March

Audio Review ~ White Knight ~ Meghan March

Although not as suspenseful as its predecessor, White Knight was an engaging and exciting conclusion to the duet. And, of course, Ardnt and York were perfect!! White Knight picked up where Black Sheep ended. Good thing since I’d been biting my nails anxiously awaiting the continuation of that scene. It was shocking but not for the reasons I’d been anticipating. Once things are cleared up between Drew/Memphis and Cannon, the story took a turn. Memphis’s original purpose for insinuating herself into Cannon’s life changes and Cannon works to prove he’ll do whatever he can to get her the answers she needs. He also has to prove to his family – his father and brother – that he’s worthy. But he wants to […]

Audio Review ~ Black Sheep ~ Meghan March

Audio Review ~ Black Sheep ~ Meghan March

Wow! Wow! Wow! Black Sheep was intense. MMarch certainly knows how to dial up the suspense and tension while keeping the hot factor in perfect balance. Arndt and York brought Drew and Cannon to life brilliantly, proving yet again why they’re two of my favorite narrators. Highlights: Characters Drew is a character to admire. She’s determined to figure out what happened to her dad, putting her life on the line for revenge/justice. She’s smart and daring both of which draw Cannon. Cannon is the black sheep of his family. He’s the illegitimate son of a mafia kingpin but refuses to dirty himself. He even went against his father’s orders and is still paying for it. Drew and Cannon shouldn’t be […]
