Hot Winter Nights by Jill Shalvis
Series Heartbreaker Bay book 6
Rating: 4.5 Stars - Another to add to a great series!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This book was great! Had me laughing out loud early on and all throughout. I loved all the random texts and phone calls, creates the nice slow burn kinda feel. I liked the childhood friends aspect as well. Rana and Landon (so far I haven‘t met a hero named Landon I didn't like.. anyway) they were a fun pair to watch fall in love. ❤
🎧 Andi Arndt does such an amazing job narrating. This book was a definite win for me.
5 🌟 I love a guy who doesn't give up. Hunter knew what he wanted.. or rather who and went after her. I really enjoyed the banter between Natalia and Hunter, there were loads of sparks, tension and I laughed often, which is always a bonus. This story felt full and was easy to fall into. Izzy was also a great character, I thought she added just that little something extra.
The two narrators were fantastic as usual.

2 Stars - This was not what I have come to expect from Lauren Blakely. I found it very slow and I wasn't too keen on the leading lady. Sadly I also didn't feel much chemistry between Joy and Griffin. There were a few funny parts and the ending was nicely done. I enjoyed their happily ever after. The narrators were decent and clear spoken.

2.5 🌟 Jealousy, Lies, Envy .. with a hint of romance. This book had more lying than I have seen before in a book. Lies on top of lies. It's a wonder there was a happy ending. It did come with a side dish of romance as well- usually I like it as the main course, however, this one was sweet… once Amy got herself together
The narration was good. It was an okay way to pass time.
Cake Series #3 - #Audiobook
Fiercely Emma by J. Bengtsson
Narrated by: Andi Arndt, Zachary Webber
🌟🌟🌟🌟 Emma‘s story was heartwarming, funny and entertaining. Finn was a down to earth yet optimistic hero. Emma had some things to work through and Finn helped her come out of her shell.
A feel good story with Great Narrators!
Narrated: Joy Nash & Chris Brinkley
Winston Brothers #3
5 OMG!! STARS!! I LOVED THIS BOOK! It has one of my favourite plot types: the man helping to find a husband for the girl, but falls for the girl he's helping! Ugh, Love it! And to have that man be Cletus Winston, man oh man, Jennifer is one lucky lady! He is funny, sweet, caring, a bad boy when needed, gentlemanly, hard working and just about any other ideal a woman could want in a guy!
The Real Deal by Lauren Blakely (Audiobook)
Narrated by: Zachary Webber and Erin Mallon
4 🌟 I quite enjoyed this fake boyfriend plot line and the characters involved. The dialogue was witty and filled with fabulous tension. The story slowed a bit for me part way in the last quarter, but picked up again with a wonderful ending.
Narrators: Zachary Webber - Awesome as usual
Erin Mallon -Great except for the drawing out of some syllables.
Kissing Tolstoy by Penny Reid #Audiobook
Narrated by:Fiona Fisher and Stephen Dexter
Series: Dear Professor Volume 1
5 Stars! - Loved this book. So good. Penny Reid‘s wit and writing is amazing. I devoured this story and still wish I had more. Characters had great chemistry, was a wonderful slow burn kind of thing. The narration was done well and I am super glad I read this.

Series: Heartbreaker Bay #5
5 Stars - I truly love this series! The characters are all wonderful and with every book I read, I just end up looking forward to which character‘s story could come next! Joe and Kylie had great chemistry and made me laugh more than once. I loved the banter between all the characters, and overall the book was well written and thoroughly enjoyable. Can‘t wait for the next one!
5 🌟This book had everything I love in a historical romance; lots of flirting and stolen glances, perfect chemistry, a dashing rake, and scenes in a ballroom (which I find surprisingly doesn‘t happen as often in recently published historicals, well not the ones I have been reading anyway) and of course a happily ever after. Also, I love Lady Vera and hope she gets her own story.

4.5 🌟 Right from the start this book had me chuckling. Garrett had a great sense of humour, and he was a super sweet guy. Callie was a wonderful match for him. The high school kids added some nice fullness to the story. I really enjoyed this sweet second chance story. Zachary Webber and Andi Arndt created a wonderful performance as usual.

Best Enemies by Jane Heller (Audiobook)
Narrated by Rachel Fulginiti
3🌟 Jealousy, Lies, Envy, with a hint of romance. This book had more lies than I have seen before in a book.
Amy was so worried about what Tara thought of her, that much of this book was spent on how she could one up her. I found that aspect a bit tiresome. This book did come with a side dish of romance. I usually like it as the main course, so I would have liked a bit more.

Series: Duchess of Love book # 0.5
4 🌟This was a super short, sweet story. Venus and Drew had a wonderfully fun “meet-cute”, along with great chemistry. The writing was easy and humourous, which makes me hope the rest of the series will be equally as good. The summary for this story did a good job in drawing me in.
The narrator did a fine job, variety of voices for characters. I would listen to her again.
xo, Zach by Kendall Ryan #Audiobook
Narrated by Sebastian York and Andi Arndt
3 🌟 This book was pretty good. I liked the premise, however from the summary I was hoping for more letters/poems than there was. Zach and Poppy had good banter between each other and the story moved along nicely.
Both narrators did a wonderful job as usual.

2 🌟 The first book was great. This one was just the hero groveling for the heroine to take him back and her stringing him along. I lost interest. This also has a cliffhanger of sorts and leads into the third book which I am not going to read. The best thing about this book was #XeSands was narrating it.

4.5 🌟 Flirty moments, it's a slow burn kinda book, lots of wishing and wanting and almosts.. which have built the tension nicely. Logan and Cassandra are fun together. There are some intense moments, some sweet, some not so much. One of my favourite narrators! Beware though - cliffhanger!

3.5 🌟 This book was one of those books that has really good parts and just ok parts. I felt that there was a bit too much time spent on what happened to Jake in book one, than was needed in this book, but when Kyle and Kenzie were on the page together I loved it! Some funny parts as well.

5 🌟 I really enjoyed this book. Sweet, laugh out loud funny at parts and I just didn't want to put it down. The character's banter was fantastic. It felt true and real. Left me with all good feelings. The alternating narrative was great. Both narrators did a great job. First time I have read this author and I am soo looking forward to the next book!

4 🌟I enjoyed to premise of the story. Geeky girls finding love. I also loved how the author was able to convey gaming and sports in a similar fashion. All about being passionate for what you enjoy. The writing was sweet and light. There was a good back story and plot, lots of flirty moments, the characters were well developed, and it left me with an overall happy feeling.
The Narrator did a wonderful job.
