Story - 4 1/2 stars.

The Cornerstone is my favourite so far in the Walsh series. Shannon and Will had such great chemistry, banter, and so much snarkiness between them. I knew these 2 were going to get their HEA, but there were moments in The Cornerstone that had me a little anxious as to whether it was really going to happen for them.

Will is also my favourite guy so far in the series. He's a take charge kind of guy, and he also didn't give up on Shannon, even when she made it hard for him. She was his person, and he was determined to make her see that. The epilogue was SO sweet, Shannon's history was deeper than I was expecting, so to see her happy, content, completely in love and settled was awesome. As usual the 2 narrators for this series were once again fab.

LOVE

I've reread this book so many times, and I adore it each and every time. The Wall of Winnipeg and Me is also fabulously narrated by Callie Dalton. Ebook or audio - both are definitely worth the purchase.

This series is SO addictive.

This series is really addictive to listen to. Necessary Restorations is book 3 in The Walshes, and Tiel and Sam are the 2 main characters. I really liked Tiel, although she had a few moments of major snarkiness with Sam's family where I was starting to feel just a little frustrated with her! Sam and Tiel where so well suited, and they both have personal issues that they are struggling with that impact on their relationship. Happy to finish this and see there is another book dedicated to their HEA - I need to see more of them together.

Loving the Walsh family

I'm really enjoying the performance of both of the narrators of The Walshes, so happy that the same 2 are continuing for the whole series. Loved Patrick and Andy, and all the Walsh siblings in The Space Between, moving straight onto Necessary Restorations.

great audio to listen to

I adored Underneath it All, but occasionally Lauren really drove me nuts with the whole denial over what she felt for Matthew, and the MUST stick to her plan thought process. Fabulous audiobook to listen to though, the narrators really nailed it.

love a good second chance romance

I started listening to A Lie For A Lie yesterday, and was completely hooked by the storyline and the fabulous narrators. Halfway through I switched to the ebook - I had reached the really good part of the story (the whole Lie for A Lie part - if you have read it, you know where I was!), and I just HAD to keep going. Unfortunately listening to Audio relaxes me so much at night it sends me to sleep, so ebook to finish was required. (Jason Clarke is one of my fav narrators, so I'm going to finish the audio off today as well - he's too good not to listen to).

Lainey was such a sweet, super smart, adorably awkward character. She meets Rook (RJ) when they are both travelling to Alaska, and he is completely charmed by the above mentioned adorable awkwardness. Bonus that she has no idea at all who he is. When RJ is called away from Alaska for a family emergency, both realise too late they are unable to contact the other. Fast forward to a year later where they run into each other again by chance, and then starts the interesting part of the story which kept me up late reading!

There are a couple of more serious themes in the storyline, but overall it was a very low angst, at times fun to read second chance romance

Simon was my fav!

I loved everything about Simon - he had such an amazing funny and playful side, but he was serious and supportive when the situation required it. It took Simon a little while to realise just how hard he had fallen for Bridget, but once he realised he was all in.

Bridget was much more protective of her heart. Being a widowed single Mum, Simon's interest in her really appeared too good to be true - From her POV, here is this hot doctor that could get anyone he wants, why would he want to stay with her?

Loved the narration by Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt, very enjoyable to listen to.

So much fun to listen to

Blake Riley is without a doubt my favourite character in Good Boy ( other than Jamie and Wes of course! ). I liked Jess too, but Blake was just hilarious. I smiled so many times listening to his POV, he was sweet, at times goofy and completely oblivious, and persistent! He was such a good match for Jess, it just took a while for Jess to be able to see that as well. Loved, moving onto Stay now. Him/Us/Good Boy have all been amazing audiobooks to listen to, and I enjoyed reading the ebooks as well.

The Storm, the 6th book in the Irin Chronicles, features Maxim and Renata as the 2 main characters. I'm so glad we finally learn more about Renata, and the very, very long journey she takes to finally finding some happiness and love with Max. Obviously I knew they were going to get there in the end, but there were times throughout the story where it really felt like they weren't going to make it *sigh of relief when they finally work it out*.

Listening to the Audio version, I didn't realise that the bonus novella 'Song for the Dying' was only included in the ebook version until I got to the end of the audio of The Storm. REALLY wanted that bonus novella as it's more Leo and Kyra, Max and Renata - fortunately The Storm is currently in KU so I was able to borrow it. I can't get enough of these characters and their world.

Another great book in the Irin Chronicles

The Silent is another wonderful addition to the Irin Chronicles. Main characters this time around are Leo (my favourite scribe after Malachi), and Kyra, who is Kareshta. I adored these 2 already from their appearances in the previous books, so I was excited to see what challenges they would face coming together......especially from Kyra's overprotective twin brother.

Narration by Aaron Shedlock was fabulous, happy to see that he narrates the next 2 books in the series which I have ready and waiting to go in my audible library.
