Carnival of Shadows: A Teagan Blackwate Urban Fantasy Novel by Leslie Scott
Four Stars

Carnival of Shadows: A Teagan Blackwater Urban Fantasy Novel is the second book in the Black Water Magic Series by Leslie Scott. This is the first book by this author and it definitely won’t be the last. I didn’t find it hard to read without reading the first. That being said I probably will go back and read book one. This story has amazing characters and a fast paced story line. If you like paranormal, then this book will be perfect for you.

Miss Understanding (The Miss Series Book 1) AUDIO BOOK by Aubrey Bondurant – Review by Sunday Barnaby

Miss Understanding  by Aubrey Bondurant

Narrated by Ariel Royce and Christopher Rourke

Five Stars

 

Miss Understanding: An Enemies-to-Lovers Office Romance is the first book in The Miss Series by Aubrey Bondurant. This is not my first book I have listened to by this author, but it is now my favorite. It was a real pleasure to listen to and had me laughing out loud throughout. The characters are well developed and the Sizzling chemistry is HOT. Kendall is just hilarious with her lists and straight shooting sarcasm. Liam is a bit uptight at the beginning, but they fit together like a puzzle. I can’t wait to listen to the next book in this series.

I’m not sure if I have listened to either of these narrators before, but I was blown away with their performance. Their voices blended well together and they really brought this story to life. I would give this book TEN STARS if I could!

WILD VAMP (JADED VAMP BOOK 2) AUDIO BOOK by L.D. WOSAR – Review by Sunday Barnaby

Wild Vamp by L.D. Wosar

Narrated by Aaron Smith

Four Stars

 

Wild Vamp is the second book in the Jaded Vamp series by L.D. Wosar. This is the first book I have listened to by this author. That being said, I found the book enjoyable, but wish I had listened to the first book before this one. If you are looking for a kick a** female character, this is the series for you. This story flowed well, with a lot of action and fight scenes. I like the premise of these vampires, but again I feel I would have had more knowledge if I read the first book. I’m looking forward to listening to both the first and the third books in the series. 

This is also the first time I have listened to a narration by Aaron Smith. His growly voice grew on me as the book progress. He did a great job of bringing the characters to life. I look forward to listening to more narrations by Mr. Smith.

I’ll See You Again (Reigning Hearts, Book Four) AUDIO BOOK by KG Fletcher – Review by Sunday Barnaby

I’ll See You Again by K. G. Fletcher 

Narrated by Kelly Genelle Fletcher 

Four Stars

 

I’ll See You Again is the fourth book in the Reigning Hearts series by K. G. Fletcher. This is my new favorite book of the series. I was looking forward to Nicky’s story, and Mac is just the sweetest Rockstar I’ve read/ listened to. The books in this series can be read as standalone, but they are all great books and they have recurring characters. K.G. Really knocked it out of the ark with this one. I was on emotion overload, but I just had to keep listening to see how it would end. Brilliantly. 

This book is narrated by Kelly Genelle Fletcher. She does a good job of bringing the characters to life, and the emotional roller coaster had me in disbelief at times. I look forward to listening to many more book by Ms Fletcher.

Stepping Stone (The Stone Series Volume 2) AUDIO BOOK by Dakota Willink – Review by Sunday Barnaby

Stepping Stone by Dakota Willink

Narrated by Lacy Laurel and Jeffrey Kafer

Five Stars

 

Stepping Stone is the second book in the Stone Series: A Billionaire Romance by Dakota Willink. I have to say I think this book was even better than the first. The character growth and the continuing story had me on my listening late into the night. You really need to read this series in order to get the full effect. Krystine and Alexander continue to feel out their relationship. They have amazing chemistry and witty dialogue. I’m really looking forward to listening to the next book in the series.

This book was narrated by Lacy Laurel and Jeffrey Kafer, same as the first book. They do a wonderful job with the narration, bringing the characters to life. The voices are smooth and easy to listen to.

Blue Summer Part Two by Everly Taylor – Review by Sunday Barnaby

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Blue Summer Part Two by Everly Taylor
Five Stars

Blue Summer Part Two is the second book in the Blue Summer series by Everly Taylor. This paranormal fantasy is a short read that I couldn’t put down. This book begins wherebook one left off with Lillie captured by the evil sorcerer. She needs to escape and get back to the Zayed, where she finally feels like she has a home. This book is filled with action just like the first, and we learn more about the characters, which just makes me want more. I was really enchanted with how this book ends, but I hope that Ms. Taylor will continue to write about the Zayed people in future books. I recommend that you read part one before you dive into this book or you will not have all of the important backstory. These two books were a prefect start to my summer reading.

Heart of Stone: The Stone Series by Dakota Willink

Narrated by Lacy Laurel and Jeffrey Kafer

Five Stars

 

Heart of Stone is the first book in the Stone Series: A Billionaire Romance by Dakota Willink. This book hooked me from the beginning and I listened to the whole book in one day. I love that I had a good book to listen to on my day off. Alexander and Krystina are total opposites, but so good together. As they spend time learning the differences in their lifestyles, their chemistry explodes. I can’t wait to listen to the next book in this series. 

The narrators Lacy Laurel and Jeffery Kafer are both new to me. I really enjoyed how they brought the characters to life. Their voices are well matched and easy to listen to. I’m looking forward to listening to more by the .

Dirty Kisses and Conflicting Wishes is the first book in the Kiss Me series by Danielle Jacks. This is the first book I have read by Ms. Jacks, but definitely won’t be the last. This book had me hooked from the very first page. The characters were so detailed, I felt like I could be friends. Zoe and Damien had great chemistry and the witty dialogue had me laughing out loud. I read this book in one sitting and it just made me feel happy, so I look forward to the next book in the series. Excellent read for the holiday weekend, and a great start to my summer reading.

Dirty Tactics (Special Weapons & Tactics Book 1) AUDIO BOOK by Peyton Banks – Review by Sunday Barnaby

Dirty Tactics by Peyton Banks

Narrated by Wen Ross and Teri Taylor

Five Stars

 

Dirty Tactics is the first book in the Special Weapons & Tactic series by Peyton Banks. This is the first book I have listed to by Ms. Banks, but definitely won’t be the last. I enjoyed this book from the very start. Marcus and Sarena have off the charts chemistry and the intimate scenes are Hot, Hot, Hot, 

This book packs a bunch of action in its five plus hours. I can’t wait to listen to the next book in this series.

Wen Ross does a wonderful job narrating, as usual, bringing the characters to life. This is the first book I have listened to Trei Taylor narrate, but won’t be the last. She did a wonderful job.
