You'd think a billion dollars, a professional hockey team and a six-bedroom mansion on the Promenade would satisfy a guy. You'd be wrong. For seven years Rebecca has brightened my office with her wit and her smile. She manages both my hockey team and my sanity. I don't know when I started waking in the night, craving her. All I know is that one whiff of her perfume ruins my concentration. And her laugh makes me hard.

Brooklynaire was a great story to read/listen to. Started off reading, switched to the Audible version not far in, and listened to the rest. Wow, the male narrator had an amazing voice and was so smooth to listen to. First Audible I've listened to with him narrating, now I'm going to hunt down some more.

Loved Becca and Nate - lots of chemistry and banter throughout. It wasn't all smooth sailing to get to their HEA, but it was fun going along for the ride.

This is the whole story, right from the beginning: the sun-bleached streets, the grimy bars on the Sunset Strip, knowing Daisy’s moment was coming. Relive the euphoria of success and experience the terror that nothing will ever be as good again. Take the uppers so you can keep on believing, take the downers so you can sleep, eventually. Wonder who you are without the drugs or the music or the fans or the family that prop you up. Make decisions that will forever feel tough. Find beauty where you least expect it.

Daisy Jones and The Six - first up I have to say do yourself a favour - listen to the Audible version, it is absolutely AMAZING to listen to this story. With 15 narrators telling the story (yep - I went back to Amazon to look it up and counted once I started listening, as there were so many different voices!), it was mesmerising to listen to - and the narrators all do such a fantastic job with their characters.

The way the author wrote the story made it all the more fascinating to listen to, it really felt like I was listening to a documentary rather than a fictional story. I really enjoyed the way the story was told from the beginning. Alternating between the background story of The Six and their rise to fame, and the background of Daisy Jones, until they meet and then their story merges into the one. The story touches on many things you would expect from a famous rock band from the 70's, with the members trying to deal with their fame, addictions, love, loss, touring, being in each other's faces constantly - I was halfway through the Audible version when I also ordered myself a paperback copy, I just knew it was going to be amazing all the way through to the end, and I needed it for my bookshelf.

He was someone who belonged in my wildest fantasies instead of a rest stop in the middle of Nebraska. A sexy, cocky Australian named Chance was the last person I expected to run into on my cross-country drive. When my car broke down, we made a deal. Next thing I knew, we were traveling together, spending sexually tense nights in hotels, and taking unplanned detours. My ordinary road trip turned into the adventure of a lifetime. It was all fun and games until things got intense.

Started listening to this a couple of weeks ago, and only just finished yesterday. I couldn't listen to too much of it in one sitting - I was determined to get through it, but the narration was really not the best. I wish both the narrators hadn't tried to do an Aussie accent, especially the male narrator. He ended up sounding like an old man, not at all suited to the male character of the story, Chance. 3 stars for the story, but I'd give 2 for the Narration

Neil Josten is the newest addition to the Palmetto State University Exy team. He's short, he's fast, he's got a ton of potential - and he's the runaway son of the murderous crime lord known as the Butcher. Signing a contract with the PSU Foxes is the last thing a guy like Neil should do. The team is high profile, and he doesn't need sports crews broadcasting pictures of his face around the nation. His lies will hold up only so long under this kind of scrutiny, and the truth will get him killed.

Stella Lane thinks math is the only thing that unites the universe. She comes up with algorithms to predict customer purchases - a job that has given her more money than she knows what to do with as well as way less experience in the dating department than the average 30-year-old. It doesn't help that she has Asperger's and that French kissing reminds her of a shark getting its teeth cleaned by pilot fish. She decides that she needs lots of practice - with a professional - which is why she hires escort Michael Phan.

I'm a real fan of The Kiss Quotient - my fav type of characters to read about are those with quirky personalities. This story isn't new to me, I've read it as an ebook a few times, but really wanted to listen to the audible version as well. 5 stars for the story, 4 stars for the narration - can;t wait for this authors next book to release :)

I was going to use Whispersync for Shadow Lands, and switch between reading the ebook and listening to the Audible version - but I enjoyed the Audible so much that I couldn't bring myself to jump ahead in listening after I read some of the ebook, and instead listened to the whole version. It's a great story to listen to.

I loved that Shanti and Cayan's relationship progresses in Shadow Lands - in the previous books it was more about their chemistry. When Cayan tells Shanti what 'mesasha' means........swoon!! Lots of action and fight scenes as well, the Graygual and Inkna are preparing for battle, meanwhile Shanti is also being tested by the Shadow People by entering The Trials. She has to finish successfully to be deemed worthy of their support.

My favourite secondary characters, other than Shanti's boys, would have to be Sanders and Ruisa. Ruisa especially, as she proves how useful she is after having so many doubt her.

I love Wicked Sexy - such great banter and chemistry between Tabby and Connor, plus Tabby is SO snarky! I really enjoyed the suspense side of the storyline as well, all the twists and turns I didn't see coming the first time I read it, and was able to look forward to the second time.

I read this when it was first released, but this is the first time I've listened to the Audible version. Although the storyline is 5 stars, and this is a definite favourite from this author for me, I would rate the actual Audible version as 4 stars. I liked the narrator, she was great, it was more that when the story is dual POV I do prefer to have a female and male narrator rather than the female narrating both POV's. Still good though.

Money or love? Which would you choose? You probably just answered the question in your head, thinking it's an easy decision. For me, it's not. Did I mention it's a lot of money? A hell of a lot. I needed to go far away to think it through. As I embarked on an impulsive trip, I hit a detour when I met sexy Carter in the airport lounge. We struck up a heated conversation. Then, he left. I thought I'd never see him again. But fate had other plans. Surprise! He was the pilot of my flight.

I love the "Like US" series - they were fantastic to read as ebooks, but these 2 narrators just take the story to the next level. I have thoroughly enjoyed listening to all 3 books from them - cannot wait until the series gets to the next Moffy and Farrow release (from memory that was going to be book 6) so there is another from them both to listen to.

I enjoyed listening to the narration of Deal with The Devil. I would give the male narrator 5 stars, and the female narrator 4. I found the male narrator's POV flowed really well and was just a little more enjoyable to listen to - it didn't feel like he was reading from a script. I still enjoyed the rest of it though, it was an enjoyable book to listen to.
