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 ❤ 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. 😀 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. 👍 This is action packed so things are all part of the action.

There is a attempted rape scene in the beginning.

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!

“Hell has no Fury like a woman scorned!”

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.

“If Rachel’s first instinct was still to diagram the problem, my world hadn’t changed so much, after all.”
— 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!

“Rach, I cannot become a dog-girl with bat wings. That is not OK.”
— 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. 😊 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: The Billionaire Takes All (The Sinclairs #5) by J.S. Scott


Those Sinclairs Can Be So Cleverly Opportunistic!

The Billionaire Takes All is #05 in the The Sinclair’s Series by J.S. Scott.

Elizabeth Powers narrates.

HEA with No cliffhangers!

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

Length: 7 hrs and 5 mins

Content Advisory:
There is sex, dirty talk, and lust fueled cursing. 👍

The Sinclair cousin’s audiobooks are going in order from oldest to youngest, as the middle child is up next. Julian has been seeding his tale for a while now. Time-line wise, this starts during the Epilogue of the last book. Just know that even in real life, what happens in Vegas never stays in Vegas!

Julian Sinclair is the actor in the family. Despite having money and the ability to make connections that way, he refused to use any of it. He struggled and scrapped while hiding his identity so he could “make it” on his own merit. Why struggle when you don’t have to? It’s more about who you know than talent in Hollywood anyway. Don’t be obnoxious about it, but you shouldn’t hide it either. Julian has a lot of guilt over neglecting his family while he was hyper-focusing on his career. He would of been able to of seen his parents more than he did if he had used at least a little of his money to buy plane tickets occasionally. We all take it for granted that we have time for later, but you never really know. Today might be all you get!

 

Julian Sinclair ❤ Kristin Moore

 

Kristin Moore has been working at Shamrock’s Bar and Grill in some capacity almost all her life. Her mom was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis while she was in grade school and she has been picking up the slack ever since. This touches me quite deeply as I too have MS. Kristin is going in the opposite direction as Julian. She doesn’t want to miss any time with her family, but it is at the cost of her personal life. She is conflicted in her feelings for Julian. Its a bit love, hate smothered in insecurities.

Everything between these two, up till now, has been four-play! There are lots of twists and turns for this pair, but it’s so delicious to watch it play out! As with previous titles, there is lots of set-up going on for Xander’s story. There has been a mystery surrounding their parents death, and I’m very anxious about the details. It’s been held for his book, which is next. This Series is so addictive!

Review: The Billionaire’s Voice (The Sinclairs #4) By J.S. Scott


Lovely Nontraditional Addition!

The Billionaire’s Voice is #04 in the The Sinclair’s Series by J.S. Scott.

Elizabeth Powers narrates.

HEA with No cliffhangers!

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

Now that the siblings have all found their other halves, its time to move on to the cousins. Their family dynamics were much happier and loving growing up, with no alcoholics. Micah is first and he met our heroine Tessa back in book 3, and hasn’t been able to get her out of his mind since. Being home with family has had a lasting impression on his soul. He wants to take a page from Jared’s book and build places for his family out on the peninsula.

Tessa Sullivan lost her hearing due to a viral infection 6 years ago, and with it her fiance and career as an ice skater. She actually met Xander Sinclair first, when he saved her from walking into a busy street. Present day she lives in Amesport and runs Sullivan’s Steak and Seafood with her brother Liam. That is the place where everyone gets the lobster rolls from, in case you were wondering where you heard that name before.

 

Micah ❤ Tessa

 

Micah Sinclair is back in town on doctor’s orders, and can’t stop meeting Tessa in the shower! He purposely brushed up on his American Sign Language, ASL for short, so he would be able to communicate with the woman that stirs his heart and his groin. He earns his Book Boyfriend Badges with touching gestures to make Tessa feel abled, even when she scares the crap out of him with triple-axles.

I find it refreshing when the main characters are not your stereotypical hero or heroine. Micah isn’t ‘overcoming’ Tessa’s issues, he simply accepts them and strives to make her life better. He shows her that she doesn’t have to be limited, and that is lovely to see in a romance. Julian continues to pop up to add to his story, which is next. We learn more about Xander’s situation, and I so hurt for him. There is also lots of updates and cameos from the rest of the Sullivan clan. It’s a great addition to the series, and so worth a listen.

Review: The Billionaire’s Touch (The Sinclairs #3) By J.S. Scott


Evan has definitely met his match!

The Billionaire’s Touch is #03 in the The Sinclair’s Series by J.S. Scott.

Elizabeth Powers narrates.

HEA with No cliffhangers!

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

Evan Sinclair is the last sibling to take a mate. He has always taken care of his younger siblings, or at least tried to. His path has been more difficult than you might think. There is a sad reason why he is so uptight. His father quite literally beat it into him that he was a disabled disappointment. My heart wept for him.

This story is a take on the you’ve got mail theme and starts back at the beginning. The email correspondence starts during the events of book 0.05 when Randi sends an email to the Sinclair Foundation in case Emily isn’t successful in her request for Grady to help save Christmas. Of course Evan is the one to respond to that initial email, and not politely either. Randi’s response is priceless and really sets the whole tone. It lets you know that Evan is in for a ride, and that it’s going to be good!

 

Evan ❤ Randi

 

Miranda “Randi” Tyler has been with us from the beginning. Best friend to Emily, as well as fast friends to the other females in town. She is a teacher by trade, like her parents, but also tutors children at the community center. Her backstory is just as sad as Evan’s. These trust issues make her have some stupid moments, but luckily they don’t last long.

Even though the main siblings are taken care of, the series is not over. Up to this point you should be acquainted with the cousins. They have visited and have been talked about. Micah, Julian, and Xander are the next bachelors up for Beatrice to match with their mates. So don’t fret yourself friends. There is lots more Sinclair goodness to come!

Review: The Forbidden Billionaire (The Sinclairs, #2) By J.S. Scott


Broody Jared is SO Much More!

The Forbidden Billionaire is #02 in the The Sinclair’s Series by J.S. Scott.

Elizabeth Powers narrates.

HEA with No cliffhangers!

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

Length: 8 hrs and 25 mins

Content Advisory:

Up to this point Jared has been Moody and Broody! I had mixed feelings going into this story. On one hand he has been a d*ck and not yet redeemed himself for a HEA. On the other hand, I want to know what crawled up his bum and died because there has to be a story there. I was sure it was the after effects of his horrid father, but it turns out there is so much more!

Jared ❤ Mara

Mara Ross is suffering from financial woes! Dolls are in her blood but not exactly profitable these days. The town doll shop has been in the family for generations as well as the apartment above it. Needed repairs have not been made in a long while and when she tries to get the landlord to finally fix it, she is informed that the plans are for destruction rather than updates. She doesn’t have any family left to turn to, so she ends up accepting help from an unlikely source.

Jared Sinclair is number four in the Sinclair line. This makes him the the youngest brother, but still older than Hope. His story starts off rather dark, as he apparently has some guilt issues that are being remedied with booze. Now five years later, he finds himself obsessed with the little shop girl in the run-down house. He can’t stand to see her hurt and offers to help with the situation. Of course he doesn’t mention that HE is the landlord that she is having issue with. He follows her to the farmers market and discovers her other more flavorable talents. He recognizes this to be her ticket out of financial woes and his ticket out of guilt.

There are things that Jared did that I had completely contributed to another sibling. Maybe I heard wrong in the past 3 stories, maybe I didn’t. All I know is that those things alone could redeem him, but it doesn’t stop there. Deep down he is a family man at heart who truly loves his siblings and would do anything for them. He brings that truth and loyalty to the table which makes him worthy of his HEA.

Audio Sample

Lots of side character action to get excited about if you have been reading or listening in order. Dante and Sarah have their wedding which Mara gets to participate in. Future heros and heroines are introduce. Beatrice is up to her match-making ways for she is determined to have the whole Sinclair clan hitched by Christmas. This series just keeps getting better!

 

 

J.S. Scott has made a family to fall in love with. I look foward to listening to Evan’s story!

Review: No Ordinary Billionaire by J. S. Scott

My ReviewsHot Doctor + Hot Cop = Smexylicious!


No Ordinary Billionaire is #01 of 07 in The Sinclairs Series by J.S. Scott. 1-6 are currently published and on Audible to listen to right now through the Unlimited program. #07 is currebtly a pre-order ebook with an expected publication of April 24th, 2018. I’m pretty sure the audio will be out about the same time, as usual.

Elizabeth Powers narrates the series thus far.

HEA with no cliffhanger!

This series is heavily connected by characters so I recommend reading the books in order. It is not only more enjoyable that way, but you will miss out on the little things, as well as spoil yourself on the earlier titles if you read them out of order.

Length: 8 hrs and 28 mins
20 chapters plus an epilogue

Warning: SEX!
Yes, both in thoughts and actions, so if you do not like sex, then you should avoid.

Trigger Warnings
There are attacks, hostage situations, as well as threats/attempts at rape.



♥ Story ♥

Dante Sinclair ❤ Sarah Baxter

Book #01 is Dante’s story.

I think less than a full year has passed since book #0.05 The Billionaire’s Christmas. That one ended on New Years, and I don’t think it has cycled back around yet, but I could be wrong.

This story takes a dark turn in the middle that may make some people a bit unsettled. Don’t fret though, its not too bad and not the main overall focus. This is more a story of two pessimistic souls coming together.


Christ! It should have been me! Why wasn’t I standing where Patrick was standing when the shooter opened up and fired?


Dante Sinclair

The proverbial middle child, who despite being a billionaire, lives a blue collar life as a homicide detective in Los Angeles. A criminal’s temporary insanity leaves Dante severely injured and his partner dead. Dante has major Survivor’s guilt! He goes to his un-used house in Amesport to recover, where he makes the acquaintance of Sarah Baxter, his new doctor.

Of course he is immediately drawn to her.
And of course he wants to have sex with her.
Of course!

His sexy little doctor though, turns out to be a tough nut to crack.


Audio Sample from Audible


Sarah Baxter

A child prodigy, that never got to be a child. Boy is her mother a piece of work. She never let Sarah be a kid, so no dolls, no bike, no non-educational toys, no anything remotely fun! Her lack of understanding of general human interactions have left her feeling pretty lonely. Never fear dear lady. Dante is more than willing to show you how fun, is done!


“Sometimes I like it rough, Sarah. I think you want that, too, or you wouldn’t have asked for it.”
–Dante


The Sinclairs Series started as a story of 4 brothers, but don’t worry there always seems to be more somewhere in the family tree! No Ordinary Billionaire has a completed Read Along With Me so be sure to check that out as you read or listen.

“If a man or woman has the capability to murder, it’s already there.”
