Note to my stupid cupid self: The next time I go and anchor myself to a hot covey, make sure those anchors aren't about to compete in a fight to the death. Yeah. Total downer. I have a body now, and I don't intend to lose it. I also don't intend to lose the genfins that I've grown so attached to. So it's time to return to the kingdom island and hope like hell that my guys make it through the royal trials of the culling. I also have to hope that the prince of the realm doesn't spot me. If he does, I'm pretty sure I have imprisonment and torture to look forward to.

There's a lot of hype about this book on various Facebook groups. I find it hard to start a book because of this, as it runs the risk of not living up to expectations. Fortunately book one and two live up to expectations. They are funny and sexy but don't have much X rated content. There's some good plot twists and I have a feeling book three is not going to be predictable either. Melissa has a pleasant voice for narrating but Aaron's bonus scene on the end is seriously Hot!!!!

Book three in this series really brings it together. It focuses on Layla and Harris' relationship, which is so much better than Kiri and Roths. I found Layla a much more exciting and interesting character. She's strong, takes no sh!t, and is sassy. I find Kiri to be a bit of a pushover and naive. It's probably not a series I will reread for the third time.

Roth and I are on an open-ended tour of the world. Roth being Roth, this means missionary in Morocco, reverse cowgirl in Calcutta, bent over the bow of a houseboat in Hanoi, slow and sleepy on St. John. Anywhere and everywhere, in every conceivable position and some I didn't know were possible. Life is pretty incredible. Until I wake up in his chateau in France alone. On the bed next to me is a note. There are only four words: "He belongs to me."

This is the second time I've read the series. For some reason, the second time round, I struggled. The first in the series was good but this book was a bit arduous. The story goes around in circles of proclaiming love to each other and sex. Normally I'd think you can never have enough of the X rated scenes but this book does. There's more of Tyler Donne narrating than in first book and I found his tone a bit monotonous. It's not horrible, but there's other male voices out there that I prefer. The drama that happens in this book is good but once again, everything is overshadowed by how much the main characters love each other. It's a bit sickly sweet. In saying all this, I still think Jasinda Wilder is an amazing author, this book was just not quite on the mark for me.

Caleb is everything to her: lover, caretaker, the man who gave her life meaning when she had none. But as she seeks the truth about herself and her past, she discovers that unraveling Caleb's web of lies might very well be impossible. Logan is everything she never knew she wanted: freedom, joy, and a passion she couldn't anticipate. But is Logan's love enough to save her from herself, from Caleb, and from the tumultuous truth of her past?

The final of the trilogy. In this book you'll finally find out the truth between Isabel and Caleb. There is a HEA but with an interesting twist. Tyler Donne doesn’t speak until the last 40mins or so but both narrators do an excellent job. I really enjoyed this series. The only criticism I have is the over use of the word 'thus'. It got on my nerves a bit.

Jasinda Wilder as an author is always a win. Madame X is a complex book that keeps you wondering what will happen next. It's about a woman that has amnesia and is trying to find her identity through two men. There is plenty of X rated scenes and Summer Roberts does a wonderful job narrating both sexes. Fair warning that is does contain dubcon and a cliff hanger!

Dirty Ugly Toy is a novel that blurs the lines of right and wrong, deals with abuse, contains dubious consent, and adult subject matter. If you are sensitive to violent sexual situations, the book may not be suitable for you. Some parts of this book are not easy to hear and are not intended for everyone. However, those that keep an open mind and stick with it will not be disappointed.

Holy Dooley. It's a wild ride but there is a HEA at the end. I really enjoyed this book. It has a similar story line to FSOG but it's so much deeper and darker. Steven Barnett does a fabulous job on narrating both sexes. The xxx scenes are hot, although some can be a bit disturbing. Take heed of the warning at the start but I think it's a bloody good read!

For the first book in the series, I left a bad review and I'm not sure why. I have just listened to the first and second again and I enjoyed them a lot more second time round. The books are medium burn with good build up. Laurel Schroeder does a great job with different character voices, and in doing so, loses the annoying cadence that I struggled with in The Serreph Black series. There's a good amount of drama and love scenes and even scenes where loved ones die, which makes for an interesting change.

A very refreshing book. I've been reading RH books for a little while now, and this book was suggested on Facebook through a RH group. I'm so glad I took a chance on it. It's funny and unpredictable, with a really good plot twist. There is zero s*x in this book, which normally would seriously disappoint me, but it doesn't detract from the story at all. It's suggestive enough to tantalise the tastebuds and I'm hoping the second book will deliver the goods. Hollie Jackson narrates the majority of the book and she does a fantastic job. I really like her Scottish accent. The parts Ryan Turner narrates are also very enjoyable. I've started on the second book already and so far so good. Worth the credit.

I baulked at buying this book as it only goes for 5 hours. I'm glad I did get it however as you get enough of a character buildup before the relationships start. There is a couple of descriptive adult scenes and the actual story line is interesting. Carly does a great job narrating both sexes but Alexander should just stick to narrating the males.
