Review: A Question Of Boundaries by Sandy Bruney


Very Creative Alternative Timeline Historical Romance!

A Question Of Boundaries is #01 in the A Question of… Trilogy Series by Sandy Bruney.

This series is listed by Sandy Bruney on Audible but other sites have it listed under Sandra Bruney.

Ashley Holt narrates.

HFN with a continuing storyline.

This is a SMC Series: (Same Main Couple/Character Series) A trilogy to be exact. The first one can be listened to as a standalone, but if you intend to continue the series I would recommend reading these in order.

Length: 6 hrs and 36 mins

Content Advisory:
This is very PG with no sex.

At the time of this posting, this Audiobook is currently available as part of the Audible Romance Package.

And the E-Book is currently FREE with the Kindle Unlimited..

This is a Historical Romance with an Alternative Timeline. There are Steampunk elements as well as Paranormal. It’s definitely not like anything I’ve listened to before, in the best way.

 

Caroline โค Nathan

 

Caroline Featherstone is the heroine of this trilogy, and she is a stubborn little thing for sure. Although its an alternative world, its still not far from the history we know. Women are still without many of the rights we have today, but she is determined to be more than she is allowed to be. This leads her into to many shady situations, especially when jumping blindly in trying to find her dad. Her brilliant yet ignorant father, has gone missing and there are those that are not above kidnapping her to get to him. Lucky for her, there are those that would protect her with their lives. These friends have many special skills that give them an advantage above mere mortals. I don’t want to ruin any of the surprises, but just know that this is a paranormal and that wolf on the cover is not a pet!

Nathan Llewellen is our hero and he is more than meets the eye! He is a widower and a politician. Nate is heading the party to drop the border restrictions. He knows that if Caroline’s father truly did invent a way of communicating without wires, that it would upset the Status Quo of the last 80yrs. This should be a good thing, but there are those that greatly profit off the way things are now, that would kill to stay on top. There are paranormal secrets in Nathan’s closet, as well as those of his acquaintances.
Pay attention to the clues!

This title was published in late 2014, but is actually quite relevant to current political times. If you don’t follow politics, that’s OK too. This was a great ride, with lots of surprises! I was so much into the story that I missed one of the clues that should of been obvious to me. I still got it before it was revealed to me, but way after the point where I should of picked up on it. ๐Ÿ˜€ This is great for those that like paranormal romances, steampunk, historical romances, or clean romances. I personally like a little smutt in my reads/listens, but I still enjoyed this tale.

Audio Sample

Sandy/Sandra Bruney has created some great characters. The world building is very inventive. This is my first by her and I hope to listen to the rest of the series.

This was not my first or last listen by Ashley Holt. Her character voices are great even though at times it can get a bit muddy when the dialog goes on for length and numerous peeps are talking. Overall you don’t notice much though because you will be too rapped up in the story.

Review: Fury’s Kiss (New England Furies #1) by Nicola R. White


What An Exciting Story, I Want More!

Fury’s Kiss is #01 in the New England Furies Series by Nicola R. White.

Elizabeth Tebb narrates.

HEA with No cliffhangers!

This is a connected series, with interacting characters, places, and themes. I would recommend reading these in order.

Length: 9 hrs and 2 mins

Content Advisory:
There is sex, dirty talk, and cursing. ๐Ÿ‘ This is action packed so things are all part of the action.

There is a attempted rape scene in the beginning.

At the time of this posting, this Audiobook is currently available as part of the Audible Romance Package.

If you like Mythology, you are going to love this title! Lots of Greek lore that isn’t touched on as much, which is refreshing. The Furies take front and center, and they are pretty bad-ass!

โ€œHell has no Fury like a woman scorned!โ€

This series focuses on 3 Hot Messes of roommates that are also BFFs. They will come to inhabit a Fury to ultimately stop a big bad, maybe more than one, that is coming into our world. Well, that is over simplifying it, because these ladies are pretty bad in their own right. Alecto, Fury of Vengeance, finds her home in Tara. The shadow cat Fury of Jealousy, Megaera, finds a fitting home in Alex. While the slightly more logical Fury or Murder, Tisiphone, finds a home in Rach. Apate, Eris, and Keres are all mentioned as the potential foe, so not for sure if there is going to be more than one Top Villain, or all three.

โ€œIf Rachelโ€™s first instinct was still to diagram the problem, my world hadnโ€™t changed so much, after all.โ€
— Tara

Fury’s Kiss focuses on Tara Walker the waitress. Once this story gets going, its hard to put it down. There is a little bit of everything that makes a great Paranormal read. There is romance, some laughs, adventure, the girlfriends you wish you had, super awesome powers, plus all the great bits of mythology you know and love. Plus some that I knew about but not in as much detail as I do now!

โ€œRach, I cannot become a dog-girl with bat wings. That is not OK.โ€
— Tara

The Scooby Gang comes together quite quickly. You are introduced to all the major players of the the first 3 main books so I would suggest reading in order, as there are tid-bits that help fill out a character’s profile that you would loose if you start in the middle. Only #01 is in audio at this moment, but there are plans to get the others out soon. That’s about the only bad thing I can say about this title and series. The E-Books are available on Amazon for all that is currently written, just not audio.

Audio Sample

Nicola R. White has created some awesome characters I just can’t get enough of. ๐Ÿ˜Š I can’t wait for the rest of the series to make it to audio. This was my first listen and won’t be my last!

This was my first listen by Elizabeth Tebb. I could totally get lost in the story which is what you want from narrator. I did not like the Cajun accent for Ty. I grew up in the area that accent comes from and it did not work for me. Luckily it’s not used much.

Review: Misadventures of a Backup Bride (Misadventures #4) by Shayla Black


Who is Fooling Who is the Question!

Misadventures of a Backup Bride is #04 in the Misadventures Series by Shayla Black.

Christian Fox and Lucy Rivers narrates.

HEA with No cliffhangers!

This is a Multi Author series, written as a standalone. You do not need to read them in order.

More information can be found on the official Misadventures Website.

Length: 5 hrs and 19 mins

Content Advisory: High heat
There is sex, dirty talk, and dirty thoughts. ๐Ÿ‘

At the time of this posting, this title is currently available as part of the Audible Romance Package.

I’ve listened to several titles in this series and they have all been very steamy! The stories are page turners too, which makes them a win, win for me! The consistency as a whole has been great even though this is a multi author series of standalones. Most of the Misadventures can be found in the library as well as various subscription services so they are easy to come by.

 

Carson โค Ella

 

Carson Frost is trying to salvage the business left to him by his birth father, but his rash choices are coming back to haunt him. He took a deal with a competitor for the money he needed to keep the business afloat and the shiny coins aren’t shiny or even real coins anymore. In an effort to get out of the deal he hires Ella Hope to be the long lost love of his life that will get him out of his current engagement and then dump him at the altar … Simple, Right?

Ella Hope is a struggling actress. Her love life, as well as her bank account, have seen better days. She remembers Carson and how she would of been interested if she were not on a date with his friend. The call was welcomed timing. Spending time with the hot guy from the party while padding her bank account sounds like a solid plan. She is a professional she can do this … Simple, Right?

โ€œAm I really waxing poetic about her damn knee?โ€
— Carson

 

It wasn’t Simple! Things heat up fast, and their well laid plans go out the window. As the outside players keep changing the rules, things get crazy. Well, more crazy, because things started there in the first place. Lies become real, while the real becomes lies. Don’t believe anyone till its all said and done! A good time will be had, and that is not a lie!

 

Audio Sample

 

Shayla Black is a go-to for racier reads with awesome characters. ๐Ÿ˜Š She did not disappoint with this title.

Christian Fox and Lucy Rivers narrate this title with alternating POVs. Both individually did a great job in their pacing and emotion. I do wish it would of been a true Duet though, because they end up, by default, competing with each other for who did the character better. It’s really hard to pick a clear winner.

Review: Christmas Lovebirds (Have A Hart, #1) By Rachelle Ayala


Lovebirds Prove the Power of True Love!

Christmas Lovebirds is #01 in the Have A Hart Series by Rachelle Ayala.

Jennifer Groberg narrates.

HEA with No cliffhangers!

These are about the members of the Hart family. The characters are all up in each others lives and stories so I would suggest you read them in order.

Length: 3 hrs and 50 mins

Content Advisory:
The author rates the Heat Level of this title as Sweet: Kissing and non-graphic foreplay, but before clothes come off, the door is closed and the scene is cut. ๐Ÿ˜

At the time of this posting, this title is currently available as part of the Audible Romance Package.

This is very PG, but cute none the less. I really enjoyed the love birds! My personal experience with the little guys was not as pleasant as the ones in the story though. A friend’s family in high school had a pair and they were quite a terror. They would try to attack anyone that came anywhere near their cage. Maybe it was a territorial thing, maybe it was lack of interaction, I don’t know. From afar they were pretty and lovely to listen to, look at, and observe.

 

Melisa Hart โค Rob Reed

 

This story focuses around the youngest, and most overprotected Hart sibling, Melisa. She has had a crush on her brother’s best friend all her life, but his betrayal 10 years ago ruined it all. She has spent all the time since trying to hate him, but never truly succeeding. She seems determined to believe the worst, making her blind to what should of been obvious. But her brother Connor seems to be determined to prove that it runs in the family.

Rob Reed has been in love with Melisa Hart since the day they brought her home from the hospital. Seriously! He would sit near her bassinet and dutifully pick up her bonnet every time she tossed it over the side. Trying to help and protect his best friend in college cost him everything. It really was a stupid decision, but I’m sure we have all made those when we were young. There were better ways to accomplish the outcome that would not of been so harsh, but that’s why they say that hind sight is 20/20. Kudos to Rob for being a man of honor and never giving up the secret that was not his to tell. I would of caved after the 10yr reunion, if not before, if I had loved someone all my life. 

 

Cassie โค Casey

 

Lets be honest here, Cassie and Casey is the love story that stole the show! They proved that love at first sight is REAL! That neither time nor distance can stop true love. And that deep love encourages one to step outside their old habits to learn new ones together. They were absolutely adorable!

 A lot of angst about bird care, particularly about clipping wings. The story doesn’t sugar coat the reality of the disagreements caused by differing opinions. Which is refreshing. Mrs. Ayala has birds of her own, so I wonder how close to home this hits for her. I have a feeling this is an argument she has had more than once in her life. I can feel the passion in the words seeping through the pages.


โ€œKissee, Kissee, Kissee.โ€

This family is a bit nerve racking. Bossy, nosy, and always telling the other members how they should live their lives. So basically like real life families. There are several side characters you will see again in their own stories. I hope Ella and Declan get HEAs too. They are not listed as main hero or heroine for any of the future titles so far, but its always a possibility they may be a sub plot as the series continues. Larry and Jenna are up next. Larry came off pushy and rude at first but once his details get filled in, you find yourself rooting for him to get a HEA of his own.

 

Audio Sample

 

Rachelle Ayala is great at adding heart to any story. ๐Ÿ˜Š Even ones that lack the naughty bits.

Review: Every Rose (Take a Chance #4) by Nancy Warren


This Rose Really Does Have Thorns!

Every Rose is #04 in the Take A Chance Series by Nancy Warren.

Teri Schnaubelt narrates the series.

HEA with No cliffhangers!

These are about the members of the Chase family. I suggest reading them in order to get the best expirence.

Length: 4 hrs and 42 mins

Content Advisory:
There is mild sexplay.

โ™ฅ Story โ™ฅ

This is about Rose who is referenced as being a General Practitioner Doctor but also as birthing hundreds of babies, so it is not quite clear as to what her specialty is. She works at a hospital in Portland, so its not as if she is a small town doc that ends up doing everything. And can I mention crazy for wearing Prada heels to work. Seriously! In reading the blurb, I was a bit disappointed in her attitude for being one of the Chase siblings. After listening to this book, however, it is not quite as it seems.

 

Rose โค Matt

 

Dr. Rose Chance is a very busy women, who doesn’t have room for love and dating in her life. She also has some chips on her shoulder to overcome. I give her credit for being proactive and productive in her life despite her self-delusions. She is attracted to the hot Greek Surgeon at work, but can’t seem to let go of her princess ideals. There are events that will force her to face things in a new light.

 

Dr. Mattius Vasilopolous also comes from a large close-knit family and is also too busy to even remember what day it is sometimes, or if he ate lunch. Matt and Rose have a lot in common and make for a great couple, and she makes him contemplate love at first site. I feel for the guy because it’s going to be an uphill climb to get over her castle walls.

 

Every Rose turned out better than the blurb lets on, which was great. There is nothing wrong with wishing for a fairy-tale, but one needs to be open to reality. There is a famous quote about life and plans for a reason. Some of the secondary characters are going to show up again if you take the time to read the blurbs of future books. I’m looking forward to them all!

Nancy Warren’s creativity continues to amaze. Once again she brings a unique medical sitution. It is a bit cringe worthy, the way a man holds his crotch when he sees another get hit in his, but it is definately one I have never heard of before.

Review: Blueprint for a Kiss (Take a Chance #03) by Nancy Warren

A Home For Holly!

Blueprint for a Kiss is #03 in the Take A Chance Series by Nancy Warren.

Teri Schnaubelt narrates the series.

HEA with No cliffhangers!

These are about the members on the Chase family. I suggest reading them in order to get the best expirence.

Length: 5 hrs and 23 mins

Content Advisory:

โ™ฅ Story โ™ฅ

This is about the middle child, Prescott. He is an Architectural Genius! He specializes in green building and is in high demand world wide. Despite the lack of epilogue in #02, the previous couples are present and wedding planning, so lots of updates to be had.

Prescott โค Holly

Holly Legere is not long out of school and drowning in student loans. Despite having a MBA, she finds it hard to land a job. This scenario is all too true in real life as well!. Holly had to take a position as an assistant to the Rupert’s, who are rich and notoriously difficult. The pay sucks and the hours are worse! The promotion she will receive if she can stick it out will make it all worth it, …hopefully, …maybe.

Prescott Chance doesn’t change his mind, ever. He likes order and routine. When he is presented with a challenge by Holly, he can’t help but to bend. The more time he spends with her, the further he falls. He doesn’t want a mate, but then he is telling her to stay.

Blueprint for a Kiss is delightful! These two really complement each other. Prescott helps Holly slow down and simply enjoy and she helps him step outside his ordered life. There is no epilogue again, but im sure we will get more in the next title. This is a great edition to the Take A Chance Series, and looking forward to more!
