Unveiling Beulah by Dana Wayne
Narrated by Katie Marchant
Five Stars

This is the second book have listened by this author. She really has great details for historical romances. B. and Luke make a great couple. I absolutely love grandpa and the uncles. The story flowed and I really didn’t want it to end.
This book was narrated by Katie Marchant. I’m going to be looking for more books narrated by her. Katie’s voice is very mellow and soothing. Excellent listen. I highly recommend!

Narrated by Sierra Kline and Logan McAllister
Five Stars

Rock and Becca are my new favorite couple. This book definitely has its ups and downs but never disappoints. I have yet to read/listen to anything from this author that I haven’t absolutely love. Her talent for storytelling is out of this world.
This book was narrated by Sierra Kline and Logan McAllister as are the first 6 books in this series. They are awesome together. They really bring the characters to life. This is one of my top five listens for this year.

This is the first book in the Maverick Billionaires Series. This is also the first book I have listened to by either of these authors. I’m hooked. This was such a feel good listen. I can’t wait to hear the other brothers stories.
Eva Kaminsky is an awesome narrator. Her voice is really easy to listen to. I felt like I was right there with the characters. All around excellent experience!

Ashes (A Modern-Day Fairy Tale Book 1) by MK Harkins
Narrated by Michelle Shure
Five Stars

This book sucked me in from the very first chapter. It is a brilliant modern day Cinderella Story. Ashley and Harry make such a great couple. This book had me laughing out loud one minute and wanting to throw my phone at the wall the next. This is the first book I have listened by this author. I’m looking forward to listening to the rest of the books in this series.

This is also the first time I have listened to a book narrated by Michelle Shure. I really enjoyed her voice. It made the story flow and brought the characters to life.

Stand Your Ground by A.J. Ullman
Narrated by Melissa Reizian
Five Stars

I stepped back from my usual romance listen, for this awesome crime drama. I truly enjoyed listening to this story. It was full of current events and realistic to the times we find our nation in. I listen in one sitting.

This is the first narration I have listed to by Melissa Reizian, but definitely won’t be the last. Her voice is very easy to listen to. She brought the characters to life.

Peg’s Stand: Satan’s Devils MC #6 by Manda Mellett
Narrated by Sierra Kline and Logan McAllister
Five Stars

This by far is my favorite Satan’s Devils book, but I tend to say that with every new book Ms Mellett writes. I have been waiting for Peg’s story. It was definitely worth the wait. Darcy is the perfect woman for Peg. She is a strong woman who encounters and surmounts obstacles along the way.
This book is narrated by Sierra Kline and Logan McAllister as have been the prior books in this series. They work well with each other to bring the characters to life. The voices are easy on the ears. I look forward to listening to more books narrated by them in the future.

Never Is A Very Long Time (The Perfect Date Book 1) Audiobook by Donna McDonald – Review by Sunday Barnaby

Donna McDonald is a new author for me. I enjoyed listening to the story. Never is a Very Long Time is the first book in the series, The Perfect Date. This is a romantic comedy about dating in you 30s, 40s, 50+. Mariah Bates owns the Dating App that matches mature adults with each other for Perfect Dates. The fun ensues as she tries to stay one step ahead of her vindictive ex-husband. Detective John Monroe may turn out to be Mariah’s Perfect match. This is the first book I have listened to that used synthesized audio.  To my surprise it was great, and would definitely listen to more audios like this.

Heart Broken: Satan’s Devils Book 5 by Manda Mellett

Narrated by Sierra Kline and Logan McAllister

Five Stars

 

This book is officially my new favorite, but I tend to say that a lot about this author. She is one of my go to authors because her writing never fails to amaze me. The storylines are heartfelt and often gut wrenching. Heart and Marc make a great couple. Even though the emotions run deep, the action is a non-stop roller coaster ride. Can’t wait to see what this author has up next for us. 

Sierra Kline and Logan McAllister are awesome narrators. Their voices blend well. They bring all of the characters to life.  Awesome 5+ star listen.

Five Stars

 

This author has written another Smoking Hot Book! The Satan’s Devils is a 1% MC and this author brings both the good and the bad to light in this series. Dart and Alex are my new favorite couple. This book was fast paced and full of action. This book is well worth your time to listen. I can’t wait to get my hand on the next book/ audible in the series. 

What can I say about these narrators? They were brilliant and spot on with this one.  They brought the characters to life. Their narration flowed and had me feeing like o was right there in the middle of the action.

Five Stars

This is one of the best series I have read in a long time. The characters are amazingly strong with depth and heart. You wouldn’t think it about a MC club, but I love how they interact with friends and family. Don’t get me wrong, there is plenty of violence and mayhem. This is Chains, Winnie and Jackson’s story and it is wonderfully thought out. I feel the character’s pain and triumph. I couldn’t put this book down. My only disappointment is I have to wait a little while for Part 2. Truly Excellent Read!

Five Stars

This story features Lenny (Iron) and Joy and their daughter Everly, but it also features Chains, Winnie and Jackson. I’m so glad everyone gets to have their point of view. As an MC club they all have their brothers back. With every book I read in this series, I get more involved with the characters. The boys are big strong bikers, and the women smooth out their rough edges but still have the strength to hold them together through the rough patches. This series is in the top five of all the books I have read this year. I’m really looking forward to reading the next in the series.

Santa….Nope the Grimm Wolves: Grimm Wolves MC Series (Book 3) by D.M. Earl
Five Stars

The connection these brothers have in the MC is very telling. Even though they are big bad bikers, they really have hearts of gold. Don’t get me wrong, they are still dangerous and take care of their own first and foremost. This story features Beast and Cathy and their son Ryder. I’ve said this before with this series, getting a glimpse of all the characters in the club in their own point of view is a big yes for me. Sometimes when you get multiple points of view the storylines get messy and hard to understand, but not this series. It just bring you closer to each of the characters. All of the books in this series have grabbed a piece of my heart, but this one is my favorite so far.

The imagination that goes into these stories is amazing. I love that in this series each book is based around one couple, but every one in or related to the club has a voice. This story is Bullet and Clementine’s. This book is a little shorter than the first but it is still packed with mystery and action. I read it in one sitting and was so enthralled. I just want to keep going with the series.
Excellent Read

This author really knows how to tell a story. Francis (Stitch) is such an unusual character. I wasn’t sure were this story was going when I first started reading, but it blew me away by the time I reached the end. Francis and Grace are wonderful together, but Damien steal the story and my heart. This book is told from many different viewpoints and I really enjoyed getting everyone’s thoughts. This story is action packed from beginning to end. I can’t wait to see what this author has in store next.

This amazing story had me reading long into the night, I just couldn’t put it down. I’m really looking forward to the rest of the book in this series.

Five Stars

 

This is the third book in the Satan’s Devils Mc series by this author. All of the books have been FIVE + stars for me. If you like MC’s you should read/listen to all of the books in this series and the spin offs. Slick and Ella are my new favorite couple of this MC club. The stories is full of a rough bike lifestyle, so it is not for the faint of heart. 

 

Sierra Kline and Logan McAllister do a great job bringing the characters to life. Their voices are easy on the ears and they blend amazingly well together. I highly recommend these audibles and look forward to the next great listen by this author.

This is my first read of 2022, and I can tell you that I started this year out with a Big Bang. For a debut book this author hit this one out of the park. This book if full of action. Once I picked the book up, I couldn’t put it down until I finished. Grace Locke is a gritty lawyer/veteran who has been through some hard times. This author has really brought Grace to life and the story is so detailed it made me feel like I was right there with Grace chasing down the truth. I look forward to reading a lot more Grace Locke books in the future. Now, if I can just keep five star reading picks up for the rest of this year I will be in beaver.

Do you know when you have a really good book? I know when an author really engages my emotions. This book had me laughing a little and crying a lot. It was beautifully written. The characters were bold and detailed. The subject matter on bullying was described well by the author, but really made me emotional with my thoughts. This book had all the feels and then some. That is why this author is one of my favorites with her angsty reads.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Unlikely To Stay by Olivia Sherwood
Five Stars

Unlikely To Stay is the third book in the Parker Lake series by Olivia Sherwood . This book can be read as a stand alone, but I would highly recommend reading this series in order. The Parker Lake series is one of my top ten series I have read. The characters are believable and down to earth. This book features CC, who is the town beautician who has a confidence problem and Brant, who is a nurse practitioner that moved to Parker Lake to get his student loans paid off. Both are afraid of commitment, but the chemistry between the two is off the charts. Will they be able to overcome their issues, or will they go their separate ways? I highly recommend this book, series and author.

Hanging Softly in the Night: A Detective Nick Larson Novel AUDIO BOOK by Maria Elena Alonso-Sierra – Review by Sunday Barnaby

Hanging Softly in the Night, A Detective Nick Larson Novel by Maria Elena Alonso Sierra

Narrated by Charles Kahlenberg

 

This is a new author and series to me. I thoroughly enjoyed this story that kept me guessing until the end. It definitely can be listened to as a stand-alone, but I’m looking forward to listening to the rest of the books in this series. This book was filled with mystery and kept me listening long into the night. 

The narrator of this book is also new to me. At first, I wasn’t sure if I could listen to the whole book, but after about a chapter the narrator grew on me. It had just been quite a while since I listen to a book with one narrator. Lately I have listened to duet narration. This book really took on a life of its own once I got into the storyline.

I freaking love this series. This author writes amazingly descriptive characters and this book is no exception. This book can be read as a stand alone, but I highly recommend you read the series in order to get the full dynamic of this series. It is well worth you time and money because it is an awesome series. As in the first two books, this book is full of all the feels. I was crying, laughing and wholeheartedly touched by this story. Jared is a rock god and Madison is caring for Jared’s father. It makes for some sizzling hot scenes, but also delves into deep issues of elder care. This book is in my top five reads of the year. I can’t wait to see what this author will bring us next.

This book can be read as a stand alone, but I highly recommend you read the series in order. It will be well worth your time to get the whole backstory. This is definitely a 5+ Stars Book.

The Crown of Stones: Magic-Price AUDIO BOOK by C. L. Schneider – Review by Sunday Barnaby

The Crown of Stones: Magic Price by C.L. Schneider 

Narrated by Joey S. Bosco

Five  Stars

This is the first book in the Crown of Stones trilogy. Magic Price is the amazing beginning of this awesome series. Ian Troy is a Soldier Shinree. When he finds and uses the Crown Of Stones, his life spins out of control. After ten years of running, he must make a difficult decision to lead the resistance and learn to harness the magic to save the Realm and his people, the Shinree. He learns the truths about his heritage. The world that Schneider created with this trilogy is truly brilliant, so detailed it feels like you are part of what’s happening and can personally interact with the characters because you know them so well. 

This is the first book I have listened to by this narrator. He really makes the story amazingly lifelike. I enjoyed his voice and inflections of the different characters. I have read these books before I got the Audiobook, but I appreciate the story more with the audio. I recommend this trilogy to anyone who loves sci-fi, fantasy or just plain action adventure. I suggest if you’re going to read it start at the beginning with The Crown of Stones: Magic-Price, Magic-Scars and finally Magic-Borne. This series is amazing and magical!

Sam is so strong and a great match for Drum. The MC storyline is dark and dangerous.
The narration was flawless. Sierra and Logan’s voices blended together and brought the characters to life. Just a great overall listen.

I would love more short stories from Kharon!
