A magnificent new romance by New York Times best-selling author Emma Chase - available in audio first! Dean Walker is all about keeping life simple. He’s effortlessly talented and intelligent - spending his summers playing drums in the local band and the rest of the year teaching high school in the same Jersey town where he grew up. He likes his love life simple too, enjoying the commitment-free hook-ups his good looks and sexy charm have always made oh so easy. Then he meets Lainey Burrows. And his simple, easy life gets turned upside down.

His name was Joshua Carter. Now it's whatever she wants it to be. She is a Deliverer. She lures young men and delivers them to be sold. She delivers the strikes that enforce their obedience. She delivers the training that determines their purchase price. As long as she delivers, the arrangement that protects her family will hold. Delivering is all she knows. The one thing she can't deliver is a captive from slavery. Until him. And her stubborn slave thinks he can deliver her...from herself.

4.5 stars! Once again, Pam Godwin does not disappoint!!! DELIVER is everything I have come to love about Ms. Godwin’s books! Her narrative, story and characters are so intense and all consuming that I feel like I am living and breathing the story!! The electrifying, soul binding connection between Liv and Josh set my heart ablaze! I just loved watching Josh’s defiance, and Liv’s internal struggle as she fell for her captive. Ms. Godwin weaves an incredibly DARK story that had me cowering one minute and swooning at the next.

Hands down, one of my favourite books by Mia Sheridan!! This was a story of second chances and soul burning love that stands the test of time, and Ms. Sheridan does this SO well. This is a survival story like no other! I found myself lost in the snowy mountaintops along with Audra and Dane as they reconnected and struggled desperately to survive. Ms. Sheridan’s vivid narration of their desolation and desperation had me completely riveted!

I listened to the audiobook and Erin Mallon and Lance Greenfield were PERFECT for these characters! I didn’t want the book to end!!

I'm a freak, a misfit, an odd end. Abandoned and unloved. But my happiness is so close I can taste it. Until he shows up. Gorgeous, expensive, and all man. Sad brown eyes and a brilliant smile. And he wants me to go with him. His intentions are hidden. His motives are unclear. Yet I leave with him because there's no happiness here. What he promises feels too good to be true.... A castle. A fortune. And horses, too. It's too easy. Nothing in my life has ever been easy. What's the catch? There's always a catch.

As much as I loved the previous two books, I felt like this one was just way too long and unnecessary. Sure, we do get answers but it could have been accomplished in a shorter length! Also the use of flashbacks in the first half plus the alternating POVS from first to third made it very confusing to follow.

Kayla: My infatuation with Ezra Johnson started how all obsessions begin - with a simple crush. Over the years I silently soaked up every shy smile and random act of kindness, wrestling them away to a secret place in my heart meant for unrequited love. Because if it wasn't for the fact that I tutor him once a week, I'm pretty sure he wouldn't even know I exist. Then I find his sketchbook. And it changes everything. Ezra: There are two certainties in my life: I've been in love with Kayla Reynolds since I was 14, and I can't have her.

He was an artist. She was his muse. To everyone in town, Abel Adams was the devil's spawn, a boy who never should have been born. A monster. To 12-year-old Evie Hart, he was just a boy with golden hair, soft t-shirts and a camera. A boy who loved taking her picture and sneaking her chocolates before dinner. A boy who made her feel special. Despite her family's warnings, she loved him in secret for six years. They met in empty classrooms and kissed in darkened church closets. Until they couldn't. Until the time came to choose between love and family, and Evie chose Abel.

4.5 stars! I loved Abel and his Pixie ! Their story broke my heart into pieces and I loved how explosive their connection was! I did think that the end was a little drawn out and I would have liked an epilogue to see how this couple were doing in the future.

Savannah Peacewood was perfect as Evie but I thought that Iggy Toma needed a deeper, gruffly voice for Abel.

3.75 stars! It always feels like coming home when I pick up a Morgan family book and this one was no different! I have always loved Zander since meeting him in Keane’s book. I adore their bromance as well as the close family bond between the Morgan family members. However this wasn’t my favourite book and that’s because I couldn’t really connect with the heroine Aloha. I just felt like she was a spoilt brat with her “poor me” attitude. To be honest, I didn’t even see what Zander saw in her.

As always Lauren Rowe and John Lane did a stellar job with the audiobook.

Holy smokes!!!! Pam Godwin certainly saved the BEST for last! There was just SO much to love about this book!! This story was of EPIC proportions from the connection between Lorne and Raina, to the unbreakable family bonds, and to the final conclusion surrounding the secrets in Sandbank.

The chemistry between Lorne and Raina was COMBUSTIBLE and INTENSE!! Their banter and palpable attraction had me swooning and laughing! I loved that Raina was such a feisty, bad *** heroine that had no qualms putting the gruff and brooding Lorne in his place regularly. And OMG, my heart was torn into pieces over Lorne’s time in incarceration and his obvious guilt over what happened to his baby sister and the aftermath of that. I also loved the unwavering and unbridled bond between the family members. This bond just flowed through each book in this series and BOOTED really drove this point home.

I listened to the audiobook and the narrators were PHENOMENAL!!! Aiden Snow was PERFECT for Lorne with his gruff cowboy narration, and Emma Wilder narrated perfectly as Raina and her male voices were also spot on! I didn’t want this audio to end!!
