Book Releases: Audiobook for Barbarian’s Lady Now Available


Barbarian's Lady

The Audiobook for Barbarian’s Lady (Ice Planet Barbarians #13) by Ruby Dixon just showed up on Scribd!

I listen to all her series as soon as I can get them. They all are related in a way, but are not on the same time lines.

I don’t care, spoilers don’t bother me either.


Review: The Troublemaker Next Door by Marie Harte

 

5 Googley Eyed Frogs out of 5!

The Troublemaker Next Door is #01 in the McCauley Brothers Series by Marie Harte.

Anne Gray narrates.

HEA with a continuing storyline.

I recommend reading these in order, because if you listen to one out of order, you will want to go back and start from the beginning anyway. There are 4 brothers, 3 neighbors, and a bonus heroine with tattoos. They are all so intertwined that its practically impossible to separate them.

Length: 9 hrs and 49 mins

Content Advisory:
Steam factor on this one is , including lots of dirty talk and sexting! And despite efforts to not curse in front of the kid, there is still lots of cursing.

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

Audio Sample

This is the first in the series, but with the exception of a mystery heroine, all players are introduced in this book. The 3 heroines are renting a house from the 4 hero’s parents, which also happens to be next door neighbors to Mike (Hero #4) and his son. 😉

We start with Flynnnot Rider McCauley and Maddie Gardner.

Seriously, I can’t help but see this when I hear his character:

Flynn and his brothers own/run a remodeling/refurbishing business, ⁉, from what I can tell. I’m still not quite clear what the company is, but it didn’t distract from the story. They all have their own area of interests which is the most important thing here. Flynn is the Plumber, which is how he first meets the neighbors. He gets to see Maddie’s fiery temper in all its glory, and he is entranced.

Maddie Gardner is a slightly delusional, determined dreamer. Watching her mother struggle as a young single parent has really done a number to her mind. Now the constant wining to take no charity made me want to slap her, shake her, or angrily hug her. I can understand some of her proclivities, but others are just down right stupid. Accepting discounts or referrals is not charity, it’s helping hands.

The epilogue is mostly a set-up for book #2, Brody and Abby. Some may not like that, but it was ok to me since this series is a continuing story line and each leads right into the next.

Overall this hits all the marks. Hot sex, ✔check, naughty dirty talk, ✔check, clever banter, ✔check, witty humor, ✔check. Plus the secondary characters were fantastic. Mike’s son Colin truly steals the show.

There are many outlets where you can find this title at so you will have a lot of options.

Marie Harte has created some great characters. The world building is informative without being overwhelming. This is my first by her and I hope to listen to the rest of the series.

This was also my first listen by Anne Gray. She had a pleasant voice that flowed well. Characters were easier to tell apart when the group was all same gender, but I struggled to do so when in mixed company. Helps to have the ebook if you are struggling with the larger scenes. You can find it through your local library for free.

The recording was exactly as it should be. Pacing/timing was accurate. No background noises. Sound levels were correct with no need for constant volume changes.

Ebook obtained through my local library (Overdrive).

Quickies‎: Virgin Beast Mate


Great quickie introducing a new series!

This really got my interest up, but ended too quickly. A little bit more at the end would of made it a 5 star listen.

Hollie’s performance pulled me in so I got lost in the story.

I NEED the rest of the series NOW! 😍

Quickies‎: Breaking the Cowboy’s Rules


Don’t judge a book by it’s cover!

Or an adventure specialist!

A steamy short that pulls the heart strings. I can totally relate to the disappointment of your efforts to help blowing up on your face. 😭

Though the main couple had a rocky start, they manage to up-cycle things in the end. Cute, with a set up for the next one with the brother. Looking forward to that.

The narration parts of the sex scenes were a bit dull, but Rebecca saves it with the excellent character voices.

As for Leslie’s stories, you really can’t go wrong.


Quickies‎: I Have Never


For all the good girls with a bad girl inside! 

Sometimes you just want to break the rules of niceties!

This is the story of a girl that had too much and just let loose and broke them all! Very cute and PG, for those that don’t like sex talk.

The characters were great and voiced well by Audra Cook, with the exception of her British characters. This is my first time listening to Camilla, and I’m interested to see if any of the side characters are in the other books in this series, because there are some juicy stories if that is true. 🤞


Quickies‎: Blood & Sex, Volume 2


Jonas

Jonas did not disappoint! Or should I say Luciano?

This is book 2 and so much more steamy than book 1, and kinkier.
I like both sides of Jonas and his lady love way better than the couple of last book.
My book nerd brain is working over time on the questions, which will hopefully be answered in the next one. Have no clue as to who is next, hopefully one of the girls.
This series is my first time with both the author and the narrator and won’t be my last. Together they created a story I couldn’t stop listening to!

5 stars all around! 💞

Quickies‎: Blood & Sex, Volume 1


Michael

Great start to a new vampire series.
Like the main characters, but loved the secondary characters more.
Steamy with a side of kink. Jonas seemed to be the dirty birdie of the bunch. Really looking forward to his story next. Would like to see Jude get a book too! 💖
Mary’s performance kept me on the edge of seat. Angela is a new author for me and I look forward to more.

Quickies‎: Jameson Brothers Complete Series


True duel narration x 3, I’m in heaven!

This is the whole set, and it’s worth the credit.
These brothers are hot, but my favorite was William, book #3. His spreadsheets and presentation were priceless.

I always love what Leslie puts out. Hoping for a spin off with Poppy’s brothers.

These stories have true duel narration, which makes me want to listen to them again and again.
