♥ Story ♥

Madison ❤ Luke

Two wounded souls come together in the most delicious way!

This is a SPICY story!

There is a lot of dirty talk and HOT action, so if you don’t like that kind of stuff, please pass.

If you DO like it, then please enjoy!


Madison Atwood

Looking for an escape from the paparazzi and tabloids after a very public divorce, Madison retreats to Avalon Springs. She is hoping to ‘find herself’ on the mountainside haven. What she finds is a hunky mountain man who helps her ‘find’ her sexy parts in the best way!

Luke Dawson

Wanting to avoid cities and large crowds has led Luke to live in his secluded cabin in the woods. When he finds Madison naked in his hot springs, he can’t help wanting her. A snow storm traps them inside together and their lust can no longer be denied.


Did I mention Sexy Times!

Yum!


This was fan yourself good!
I think it went on a little too long and maybe could of done without the teary moment in the back half, but overall it worked. It gets a girl excited to listen to more. If you are like me and like some hot sexy fun times to go with good character driven stories, then this is a listen for you!



♥ Author ♥

This is my 1st read/listen by Meredith Wild and Chelle Bliss. Since this is a joint effort, I will have to rate them both the same, which is sexy hot! I loved the characters plus all the dirty talk and action! I will be looking into more from these ladies for sure.

♥ Narrator(s)♥

Jennifer Mack and Lance Greenfield alternate on this title by chapter point of view. They both did an excellent job with both story and character. I did prefer Lance’s voice when it came to Luke. Jennifer did a good job, which would of been great if she was solo on this. Unfortunately for her, Lance’s sexy gruff was just so much sexier. In an ideal world, when there are more than one narrator, the ‘voice’ of any character would be done by the same person regardless of point of view.

Non-Fiction Read: What’s Your Excuse for Not Eating Healthily? By Joanne Henson

My ReviewsGet inspired to eat well!


This is a Non-Fiction title by Joanne Henson.

Read by Petrina Kingham

Length: 1 hr and 49 mins

Ebook currently free with Kindle Unlimited



♥ Story ♥

Eating right today with all of our busy lives can be difficult at best. Finding excuses is easy. The author even encourages the listener to send in their excuse if it is not covered in this title. She manages to cover most of the common excuses we have. The ones most relevant to me, are the ones to do with family.

This is not a how to as much as it is a motivational. There are no recipes, diet plans, or any of that nature. So if that is what you are looking for, I would suggest you look for another title. Some reviewers were disappointed because they didn’t understand what was inside this little gem.

We are often our own worse enemy, and it reassuring to hear that you are not alone!

Review: Playing Without Rules (Men of Spring Baseball #1) by Rachelle Ayala

My ReviewsThe truth always has a way of finding the light.


Playing Without Rules is Book 1 of 4 in the Men of Spring Baseball Series by Rachelle Ayala.

There are currently only 2 available in audio, but the rest are due soon!

Tor Thom and Charley Ongel narrate the series.
(They are an awesome duo!)

HEA with no cliffhangers!

Being the first in the series, this could be read as a standalone. I personally would suggest starting with the novella.

Length: 4 hrs and 23 mins

Content Advisory:
Author’s Heat rating is Steamy: Sex and lovemaking shown with naughty words for body parts. Love and lust intertwined, but couple is monogamous.




♥ Story ♥

This is a tale of second chances. If you are into those kinds of tales, then you are going to like this. As a mom, I can relate to wanting whats best for your child. I didn’t quite agree with some of Marcia’s actions, but could understand the logic behind her choices.


Marcia ❤ Brock


Marcia

Marcia Powers told a lie four years ago over a miscommunication and has been running from it ever since, despite never leaving her small town. The holes she digs for herself just keep expanding, as all lies do. Bianca is the one that truly suffers in the wake of her mother’s delusions of grandeur.

Brock

Brock Carter did what the love of his life asked of him and left town to pursue his baseball career. He wanted to make himself worthy of her heart. Now he’s back, and determined to claim his dream, but Marcia doesn’t want him to have anything to do with her or her “little sister”. A child that just happens to be close in age to the time frame he left town, but that thought never occurs.

I had more feels for Brock and the other members of Marcia’s family than I did for her. She is a sloppy stack of pancakes on a good day, and she is a bit of a hypocrite. Luckily, the extra personalities balances everything out. There is a sneak peak at the end for Book 02, Playing Catch and it is quite amusing. I can’t wait!

Review: Playing the Rookie (Men of Spring Baseball Novella) by Rachelle Ayala

My ReviewsSomebody is wearing their horny pants!


Playing the Rookie is a Novella in the Men of Spring Baseball Series by Rachelle Ayala.

There are currently 4 parts in this series with 2 being available in audio.
The rest are due soon!

Tor Thom and Charley Ongel narrate the series.
(They are an awesome duo!)

HEA with no cliffhangers!

Book notes for Playing the Rookie states that this Novella can be read at anytime along with the Men of Spring Series 1-3.
I personally would suggest reading it first. ♥

Length: 2 hrs and 32 mins

Content Advisory:
Author’s Heat rating is Steamy: Sex and lovemaking shown with naughty words for body parts. Love and lust intertwined, but couple is monogamous.

Ebook currently free with Kindle Unlimited



♥ Story ♥

This Novella is short but oh so sassy good. If you are starting with this title, then you get some early introductions to the sights and sounds that makes up the “world” that is this series. You will also get to meet and greet a few characters that you will see again.

Jessica ❤ Jay

Jessica Song is interning for spring training, and spends way to much time talking to her lady bits. Jay Pak Ahn is a sponsored rookie pitcher from Korea trying to make a good showing that will hopefully lead to a long term spot on an American team.

Both of them are horny and tired of waiting for a relationship to get some. They are both gun shy on the relationship front because of their exes and decide to help each other out so they can indulge in the carnal. There is just this one big problem, neither are truly casual sex kinda people so they can’t help but get feelings involved in the equation.

I feel bad for Jessica that her default thoughts on any expressions of emotion by Jay is automatically one of regret. Once she finally confesses her back story, you can see where that stems from, but she does take it to the extreme. Usually those thoughts come with the goodbyes or lack of contact after the deed, not the moment after climax.

There are some twists and turns that will come as a surprise. This does not play out in a predictable fashion. It does have some throat punch worthy moments, so be prepared to run the gambit of emotions even for a short listen.

Losing Another Audiobook Source!

Sadly, another one of the libraries I have a card to has chosen to drop a source of audiobooks!


This is the second library card that will not have access anymore to Hoopla.

The other libraries have been dropping audiobooks from the service, but this is the 2nd one to abandon it all together. I have heard mention that a library is charged for each download through the site. Apparently the amount of downloads for audiobooks is to the level that the act of dropping only those, makes it affordable? I don’t know.

Out of all of my Library memberships, only 2 were still supporting Audiobooks through the Hoopla program, and now as of January 1, 2018, I will only have 1. 🙁 

Hoopla’s format is not my favorite by far, but they do seem to get new releases before even Audible for series and authors I listen to. 


Fingers crossed, the one solo hoopla account will hold!
