I both read/listened to this book.

I have not read any of Teagan Hunter's work before, so I didn't know what to expect as I started reading.

Let's Get Textual is a cute, funny story. I love the chemistry between Delia and Zach, and there was more than one time that I snaughed!

I enjoyed the narration and felt that they brought the characters to life.

I will be reading/listening to more.

However, most importantly - I WANT A GOAT!!

Enjoyable

My sister has been at me for years to read this series, so ...here I am!

I can understand a lot of the hype about this book now. It was enjoyable and witty and funny. I adored Rosie, and watching Don come out of his I-didn't-realise-I-was-ASD shell was lovely.

I don't know how she put up with Don at times though!

There were so many characters coming in and out of this story that it did feel clunky and a little disjointed at times, however it all came together well in the end.

Dan O'Grady is a new to me narrator, however it was great to hear a proper Australian accent, not some other nationality narrator trying to speak Aussie (does that ever sound right to us natives?)

I have have the second book sitting on my shelf at home, so I will have to get in and read it

I have missed diving into a Lauren Blakely story, so it was good to get back to it with Instant Attraction.

I liked the multiple storylines, with the multiple narrators (even when there is a narrator I am not usually a fan of involved - sorry) and liked the different ways the stories came across. We get three stories rolled into one with this audio.

I haven't read to Instant Gratification, which I am looking forward to reading soon - I need more of Jason and Truly's story.

Why did I wait so long to start this series?

How has it taken me so long to start this series? I have had friends telling me for years to read it and I was all yeah yeah I'll get to it.

Now I am kicking myself for taking so long to get started!

Dark, gritty and real, Nine Minutes does not shy away from the reality of MC clubs, and I have a love/hate relationship with Griz, with Grunt and the people of Satan's Army.

I was left with so many questions at the end of this book, however knowing there are 2 more books, I know that they will be answered.

MOnique Makena is a new narrator to me, and one that I will be searching for more of in the future.

I have previous read Torian, so I knew where the story was going to go.

DC Cole and Laura Jennings really brought Cole and Anissa to life. The raw emotions, the banter and snark shine through their story telling.

From the snippets of Torian I have seen in Hunter and Decker, I knew that Cole Torian's story was going to be an intriguing one.


I wasn't sure where this story was going to take us, and I was pleasantly surprised with what was happening (though, with what is happening, I don't think pleasantly is the right word to be using).

Torian and Anissa's story is gritty and full of twists and turns. I wasn't a big fan of Anissa at first - I can't put my finger on exactly what it was, but she did not endear herself to me. However, as the story progressed I warmed up to her a lot more, and by the end of the book I did like her.

Cole - now, I am pretty sure we are supposed to have a love/hate relationship with him, however I didn't go much on the hate side lol. Things he does are not always the best, however as a person I liked him from the get go. He gets under your skin - and I for one did not want him to get out.

This story had my heart hurting, followed by smiling, with a bit of gut wrenching in between. I just never knew what emotion I would be feeling from chapter to chapter.

It was great to see Hunt and Decker and their ladies for bits and pieces, and it made me realise how much I needed more of them.

Lacked something

Now I am not sure if it is because I read these out of order (no idea how I went from book 2 to book 5), however Tyree's story was the one I wanted to know about, however for me it just lacked something.

I didn't really connect with any of the characters. I could understand Tyree's hesitance getting back together with the one that got away, however I just didn't get the stuff with Eva and Elena.

I wanted more emotions, I wanted snark, I wanted yelling matches, I just wanted more feeling from everyone. However this could just be me.

The narration for this book was much better to me than for book 2 - I had a terrible time with the accents in book 2.

I will be going back and reading books 3 and 4 to catch up on everything.I have missed, and look forward to Noah Michael Levine's narrations.

Beautiful story

I have adored everything I have read by N.R Walker, however I had somehow missed the Thomas Elkin series,

What a wonderful, surprising start to the series is Elements of Retrofit.

I adore Thomas and Cooper, especially whilst they are finding their way to a relationship.

Nick Russo is a great at bringing these characters to life, and I can't wait for more of this series.

I need more

Loved diving into this second installment of the Thomas Elkin series.

I laughed, I cried, I got frustrated at people, I fell more in love with Thomas and Cooper - I mean, it is a Cooper Jones thing to love him even more than before.

Nick Russo does a great job telling this story, and now I need the third book ASAP!

Entertaining

Audio/ebook review

What the heck did I just read, and why the heck did I enjoy it so much.

I didn't really know what this book was about, however watching a friends audible updates on Facebook made me curious.

And I am glad that I decided to read this.

In its parts, this book shouldn't be good. Space cats, aliens, kink between the two. Nope, this shouldn't work.

But it does, and it does it well.

Amusing, entertaining and just a whole lot of "this doesn't make sense" had me extending my walks so I could listen to just one more chapter. I ran out of time to listen yesterday, so I laid on the couch and read the last 25% instead, as I needed to know what would happen.

I loved the narration (don't I always when it is Joel?)

Now I have a dilemma, do I start book 2 now, or wait until book 3 is out?

So out of the box for me

I picked this one up on recommendation from The Scarlet Siren - that woman is trying to send me broke.

This was a bit out of the box for me, however I really did enjoy it.

I wasn't really sure what to expect as I dived in pretty blind - plus, a Joel Leslie narration is an auto buy for me.

Magicians, magical beings, historical - this book had a bit of it all, and it was a pleasant change from my usual listening.

I hope we get more in this series, as I feel there is so much more for us to learn.

This was my first Lee Welch story, and I will listen to more in the future.
