Review: What Lies Beneath (Enigma #1) by Ditter Kellen

My ReviewsExciting adventures from below!

What Lies Beneath is #01 of 09 in the Enigma Series by Ditter Kellen. All 9 are currently published with 05 of them being in audio. The author plans for the other 4 to be in audio by the end of the year. She also plans many more after #09 at this time. Which excites me to no end!
Every fan never wants their series to end!

❤ Yay! ❤
Happy dance

Johnny Mack narrates the series, to include all future editions.

HEA with no cliffhanger!

These are connected by characters so I recommend reading the books in order. It is more enjoyable that way, but could be taken as standalones if you absolutely insist. There would be spoilers for the earlier ones if you start in the middle.

Length: 6 hrs and 8 mins

Warning: SEX!
Yes! Both in thoughts and actions, so those opposed should avoid.

Trigger Warnings
None that I see.
Please let me know it you think there should be.

♥ Story ♥


Bracadyte Prince, Hauke ❤ Doctor Abbigail Sutherland

“Enigma,” he finished for her.



Doctor Abbigail Sutherland knows her dad is up to something and follows him to work to find that the answer is more than she could of imaged. A human-like specimen is in the lab, waiting to be retrieved by the military. Abbie feels drawn to this creature but cannot fathom why. He seems familiar for some reason.



Hauke is a type of alien merman, for lack of a better word. The last thing he remembers is searching for his sister and brothers in arms after an explosion. He wakes in the lab to the sounds of Abbie’s voice and mentally links with her and shares the memories of their past encounter. After an infusion of human blood, Hauke is miraculously back from the dead just in time for all hell to break loose.


He backed her toward the unmade bed situated against the side wall. “I need to love you now, sweet Abbie. All of you.”
— Hauke

The pair turn to Abbie’s uncle for protection. Uncle Tony is an ex-CIA operative who is a ghost. Seriously, he basically never existed due to his past government relations. With Tony’s help, they manage to get Hauke home under the sea. Take note of Uncle Tony, because you will see him again!

“Te amo’?” she questioned through their link.
“It means I love you.”

Of course it’s not going to be that easy!

There is a lot of action to be had, as well as more characters to meet and fall in love with. The overall story Arc of the Bracadytes and the infection will continue throughout the whole series.

Ditter Kellen weaves mythology into a uniquely beautiful story that is the world of the Bracadytes. The characters are fictional but will illicit real emotions. You will want to rise up on their behalf to protect them from the human ignorance that threatens their well-being.

“You have a strange vocabulary, my mate. I am not certain why they would give me a rat’s ass”
— Hauke

The Enigma series has quickly become one of my favorites! I can’t wait to listen to the next as I devour this series like candy. I want to know how every character’s story plays out!

I can’t really comment more without spoiling something. And trust me, there are things I want to say about some of the people I want to stab in the face, lol, but I will have to make this series a part of the Read Along With Me titles, so look for it over there hopefully soon.

“Do not feel bad for me, my mate. I cannot change what I am, and I sense the love you hold for me inside your heart. Know that I possess feelings for you that you could never comprehend.”
— Hauke

This is my second read/listen by Ditter Kellen, and I can’t get enough! Her writing is imaginative and unique! The covers are HOT!

This is my fourth listen by Johnny Mack, and I’m still loving it! His performance of both male and female character works. If I had to nit pick, the only thing I could say is sometimes the transitioning between narration and Hauke’s voice is not always smooth, which is not that big of a deal, being that it is a transition of Hauke’s thoughts/POV to Hauke speaking, so its all still Hauke. 🙂

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!
