Review: Jade’s Fantasy (Kidnap Fantasies, #1) By Jan Springer

My ReviewsSexy Fantasies For Hire!


This is the first entry in the Kidnap Fantasies Series.
There are currently 3 books in the series, with 2 being in audio.

Consent was given for all of the fantasies, so don’t fret! Kidnap Fantasies is actually the name of a private company that arranges many different types of fantasies for its high end customers.

No matter what your perceived thoughts might be, this is actually a hot and steamy series with characters you can’t get enough of.


♥ Story ♥
As mentioned above, Kidnap Fantasies Inc., is essentially an escort service in pretty packaging. They provide brochures of their services to which one can peruse and choose their desired fantasy. The client then fills out a questionnaire with all the preferred details of their sexy adventure. From there, the company takes over and before you know it, your deepest sexy desires are being fulfilled.

Our Heroine, Jade Hart, finds the concept intriguing but not something she is brave enough to indulge in. She used to be a professional downhill skier, but a tragic accident ended that career and left her with scars she thinks no man could love. This is, of course, made worse by Jade’s horrid ex-fiance, Beau. This doesn’t stop her from filling out the questionnaire however, including some questionable vegetable options.

Jade’s sneaky, yet well-meaning sisters, steal the questionnaire and turn it in for her. They hope to make her Christmas a very lusty one she will never forget. So when Jade finds herself adrift at sea on her yacht with sexy handyman Caydon Minnelli, she somehow seems to forget that the things happening were from the questions she answered.

There are more secrets and twists that makes this one fun read in the most smutty of ways! I am left with a burning desire to know who the mystery owners are. Alas, I will have to wait for the big reveal in future installments. Its nothing that effects this story directly, just more my ingrained curiosity.

It’s sexy, humorous, and endearing all in one, what more can you ask for! 🙂


♥ Author ♥
This is my first read/listen by Jan Springer and definitely plan to read more. The stories are hot and there is lots of sex, which is awesome alone, but she manages to infuse even a short story with likable characters that makes the overall experience even better.
She has 9 titles to her name listed on Audible.


♥ Narrator(s) ♥
Teri Clark Linden has narrated other titles I have listened to, as she has a very large catalog, but seeing how this is my first review for her performance, I will treat it as such and rate this as my first. 🙂

Teri’s titles range across the board from teens to erotica so there is something for everyone in her catalog. I find her voice quite pleasant and her handling of both male and female voices is excellent. You can hear the character’s pain as well as their joy in her performance.
She has a large catalog of 134 titles to her name listed on Audible.
My Audible Wishlist just got much bigger!

Review: Immortal Eclipse by Sherry Soule

My ReviewsWhat does home truly mean to you?


This is a standalone title, with some romance, a haunting, and a whole lot of mystery.

The steam factor is low for those more conservative types out there.

♥ Story ♥
It’s an interesting story with a HEA, but boy was I exhausted when I got there. The haunting is deeper and more twisted than anyone expects. If you like mystery, the paranormal, and twisted fairy tales, this is right up your alley.

Skylar Blackwell is the heroine of the story, and she really does have a shoe problem. Really! She is a photographer by trade, that combines her shoe fetish into what she thinks is her dream career. The paranormal world though has other plans, despite her efforts to avoid it.

Before she knows it, Skylar ends up at the creepy haunted mansion left to her by her paranormal hunting uncle. There she meets the hunky Dorian Delacroix and everything goes to hell in a handbasket. She tries to be a strong skeptic, but in her efforts to not be like her family, and not to fall in love with Dorian, she tends to miss stuff.

There is great efforts put into the details of this story and the writing was very emotionally charged. There is non-stop action and turmoil at every turn. Seriously, I was drained by the end.

I feel like it could have been shorter and made more of an impact, because at over 11 hours, that is half a day of strife. Perhaps an epilogue or something of the like that had some more happy times to soothe the soul at the end. You will need something fluffier and lighter to cushion your heart after this.

♥ Author ♥
This is my first read/listen by Sherry Soule and her writing has great potential. I loved the world and character building and want to check out her other works. She currently has 3 titles on her Audible profile.

♥ Narrator(s) ♥
Courtney Parker had her work cut out for her, because there were many characters, of various ages and genders, as well as states of being. She does well at portraying the emotions the characters are feeling. I would definitely listen to her other performances.

Review: Timeless Desire by Lucy Felthouse

My ReviewsA haunted library love story!


This is a short standalone title at a little over an hour and a half. It’s sweet, a bit heart wrenching, with a little bit of steam thrown in.

There is a note with this title that states its a revised and extended version of a previously published title, Love Through Time.

♥ Story ♥
Emily Stone is a book conservator called to Westbury Manor to help organize and preserve their large library. Shortly after she arrives she meets their conveniently hot and sexy night guard George. Because that happens all the time, right?

Then before you know it, there is pictures being knocked over and a secret haunting comes to light. Apparently that wasn’t disclosed in the job description. This sets our two characters up to work in tight quarters while they try to unravel the mystery of why the things go bump in the night.
We all know what that leads too! 🙂

The story they uncover will break your heart a little. I for one could of used just a little more closure on it, but not for sure what more she could of wrote.

This is a light story with a little bit of steam at the end. A great read/listen for when you need a brain break from some of the harsher ones.

♥ Author ♥
I’ve listened and rated/reviewed several other Lucy Felthouse tales and this one did not disappoint. I find that even though many of her title are listed as “Erotica” they can often be quite tame. They make for a pleasant in between read when you need a palate cleanser. She writes great stories, long or short, with intriguing characters and plots.

♥ Narrator(s) ♥
This is my first listen to Louisa Middleton and the only title listed on her Audible page. That does not mean that she has not narrated anything else, exactly. Many Narrators use different names for different genres. I do not know if this is the case for Louisa Middleton.

She did a good job with this title and her accent is quite cute. It works for a shy librarian type. Her male voice did not lack as he came off fairly dreamy.

The production quality needed a boost in speed. At least on my audible player. An increase of 1 to 2 ticks is all that is needed and it fixed it right up.

Read Along With Me: No Ordinary Billionaire Part 02

Read Along With Me @ Chapter 04


Talk about mind over matter!
Don’t think I could of did all that walking plus drive my car with glass in my foot.
Seriously!

I’d be hitting that center up at least weekly!

Girl, accept that peace offering!

Those little old ladies are going to hook you up Dante!
Can’t Wait!
Mwhaaaa!

I’ve never been able to get behind lobster rolls or crab cakes. Does anyone actually eat those things? People always talk about them in movies, books, and on TV, but never met anyone that has actually said that they love eating them.

Jarod was the one behind building the homes there and not Grady.
I thought it was Grady!

Chi-Poo
Chihuahua / Poodle

Way to be a cock-blocker Jarod!
Hope Dante gets you back in your book!

 

@ Chapter 05


Come on guys!
Let the man get laid!

Then go get her Dante!

Finally, the birth order layout! Wasn’t quite what I thought it was.

Evan is 33
Grady 32
(The last book made he sound like the baby of the family)
Dante 31
Cockblocker Jared is 29
Hope is 27
(I did not peg her for the baby either, I guess their mom kept going till she got the girl, to whom she left behind with all the boys too, what an Asshole!)

Hope & Jason Sutherland’s HEA book is part of another series if you want to read/listen to that.
Link info here

Isn’t playing on schedule what she is actually doing by playing before bingo every week?
I’m just saying.

@ Chapter 06


If someone else interrupts this I’m going to scream!

Ok, the “I’m your doctor” bit is getting old like yesterday!
I want to run that record through an industrial shredder where there nothing but tiny slivers left so she can never put it back together.
Ugh!

First Impressions: Intercepted by Love: Part 1

First ImpressionsThere will be cursing!


This is a rant, for character stabbing, I apologize now for there will be cursing!

Please don’t misunderstand this rant as the book being bad. No, this is a 5 stars, do read.

This is a rant of rage that characters evoke on your soul as you read.

I will try to clean this up once done with the appropriate symbols, but I want to punch a b@#$h so bad right now!

This chick is supposed to be her friend? Oh hell no!

She was all too eager to let stuff slide when she wanted to f@#k the guy, but now that he is f@#$%^g her “friend” she’s gone all hostile!

The dude is embarrassed and hiding away from the paps. Cut him some slack! So he used a fake name and a fake story, but damn, just about every celebrity out there does it. I’d assume her brother that gets bad press is the douchebag that did Andie wrong. Cause he sounded as s@#$%y of a person this chick turns out to be.

I would of told the b@#$h I was going to sue her for all that money she is getting for the story and that she better hope she has no skeletons in her closet, because I’m going to dig them the f@#k up right now. Oh, and if she said stupid s@#t to make a more juicy story, I would start making up s##t about her and my “working conditions”.

Seriously, I would make it just as unpleasant for that c@#t as she was making it for me.

I can’t believe this is going to be in six parts!!!!!!! I’m not going to make it!

The new b@#$h at the end is going to be extra people I’m going to want to fictionally punch in the face, I just have the feeling in my gut!

I will probably need the time in-between the books to calm down! So that will have to hold me over why I wait for the last two to be completed in audio, which has been confirmed by the author (Rachelle Ayala) and the narrator (Chris Abell) that it will happen! So be on the lookout for it!

It’s good writing, just be prepared to want to commit character murder before the book is over!

A full proper review will come soon, after I have a chance for the murderess rage to subside and can write it without cussing! 🙂


Intercepted by Love: Part 1

Review: Wanderers: Ragnarök (Wanderers #1) by Richard A Bamberg

My ReviewsI want a manticore-possessed Harley!


This is the first book in the Wanderers Series. This is a continuing story line and characters, so even though it is not a cliffhanger at the end, there is also no HEA either.

♥ Story ♥
This story’s mythology is based around Norse traditions of the deities claiming fallen warriors as their champions. Most people are only familiar with the Valkyries, but just like the Greeks there were many deities to pray to that all came with their own entourages.

That’s where Rafe finds himself, as the minion of the Fate Verðandi. Who I have to say is pretty bad leading her Wanderers. Rafe has gone over 5 years without any contact or messages from her. As a Wanderer, he is to keep the status quo of good and evil by destroying demons that are causing havoc and disturbing this balance.

Rafe has been alone since his mentor was killed so is not in tune with the danger that is coming his way. Someone is trying to set in to motion the events that will lead to Ragnarök. For those that are not aware of what that is, it is the Norse equivalent of the end of days. It’s the final battle for the right to rule the world.

Needless to say, this is a bad thing. In trying to stop the first step in the end of the world Rafe has his trusted familiar Beast, that is a manticore who most often is in the form of a Harley, which makes for some humorous scenes. He has to team up with some overly horny witches, seriously they will not leave the dude alone, to try and prevent the first essentially “seal” from being broken.

The mythology is solid, and there is a lot of action, but I feel like this title suffers from first-book-itus. Too much info dumped over too long of a time, pulled the story down with it. It’s still a good start to a series and I’m looking forward to the next one.

♥ Author ♥
This is my first read/listen by Richard A Bamberg and I think it’s a great start. Very creative world building. I’m very curious to see what book 2 brings.

♥ Narrator(s) ♥
Johnny Mack is great as always. I have listened to him in other books and he just has that perfect amount of gruff to his voice that can be both charming and sultry in the same book.

Review: The Dreaming (Sensual Fairy Stories #2) by Regan Bayle

My Reviews

Sexy & Sultry Sleeping Beauty


Hot take on an old tale!

This is my first read of the Sensual Fairy Stories Series, but it is book 2. This seems like it could completely stand alone, but I cannot say for certain as I have not read #1.

♥ Story ♥
Prince Landon needs to beat his brothers to a bride. He goes to a Fae woman to see about one of the “special” case princesses. Hoping for an easy score, he goes with the one that seems like the least amount of work. He chooses Princess Aurelle who has been trapped in a sleeping curse. Worried about what he might actually be getting, the Fae woman gives him a snow globe that will allow him to enter her world in his dreams.
Cue David Bowie music from Labyrinth! 🙂

Aurelle is essentially a 90 year old virgin, who hasn’t been able to even have a proper sex dream. When Landon shows up, she doesn’t think it is going to go anywhere like all the other attempts on her part to create a prince, so she throws herself at him without abandon.

Their sexual chemistry is excellent, but they do have a small problem. To release her from her curse he has to do so in person.

This is short read/listen but had all the good parts! The characters where likeable and the story plausible, for a sexy fairy tale. I could of used a few more sentences at the end to wrap it up a bit more, but it’s still a good story either way.

♥ Author ♥
This is my first read by Regan Bayle, and I will definitely be listening to more. There are only 2 titles currently available in audio format, so hopefully she has plans to bring the rest of the series to Audible.

♥ Narrator(s) ♥
Lia Langola did well narrating. She gave the story momentum, keeping you enthralled for the ride.
