Quickie Reviews. First Impressions with a review still to come.

Quickies: Dragon Baby

Having The Hot Boss’s Baby!

More of a deeply annoyed, than an enemies to lovers story, with a paranormal twist. Although this is book #5 in the Night and Day Ink Series, it can totally be read as a standalone. If you are reading in order, several characters from the earlier stories make cameos.

Thane Dreki is actually a silent partner in the company who is needed to step up and help out since all the main players are essentially on their honeymoon. Oh, and he is a Dragon! Yumm! He comes with a mix of baggage you’ll discover along the way, but the most important to note is that there is a cut off period to mate or he’ll die.

Lily Cruz is yet another one of the tiger cousin working within the company. She finds herself temporarily acting as Thane’s assistant because of those same honeymoon issues, even though that is not anywhere near her job duties. She has baby fever just like the other she-cats, but does NOT want a wolf shifter baby-daddy, or perhaps even a shifter at all. She has enough drama llama baggage from her fox shifter ex-husband.

snowSnow Changes Everything!
… Ok, not just the snow, but that’s where it all starts!😊

A lot of story is packed into this 3.5 hr audiobook. Lots of smexy times and a HEA. This can be listened to for free through the Audible Escape program.

I don’t know if there are any more books planned for this series, or perhaps a spin-off. I would really love to hear Saxon’s HEA story! I sent a message to the author to see if I could get some more info. I will post if I hear anything!

β™₯ Author/Narrator β™₯

Author Milly Taiden writes mostly short stories with a paranormal flavor βž• Smexy. She is great about giving content warnings, so please read them before selecting this title.

** MT gives this following Listener’s note: This is one sexy, sweet story about a man who needs a mate to survive and a woman who wants a family. There’s action, drama, and lots of bad words and hot sex. If that’s not your thing, keep it moving. If you like that stuff, check this baby out!

This story is performed by Lauren Sweet, who also narrates most of MT’s catalog. Overall she does a great job, but there were some accents that were not right to me. It was side characters and less than a chapter worth of dialog, so easy enough to get through.

β™₯ Audio Production β™₯

Original speed seemed a bit fast to me. I listened @ 0.95 speed. Don’t be afraid to experiment.

Quickies: Bounced: A Blue Collar Bad Boy Romance

The Bouncer And The Actuary, Its Hot!

The H even comments about how unsexy that sounds, but trust me, the Steam Is Real! Bounced is one smexy standalone, even though it is listed as part of a series, but that is more in theme.

Its short, its hot, its insta-love at its finest. It all just works. No violence or cheating drama. HEA plus epilogue.

This is my first time with author Brill Harper. She wrote a sexy short with substance that makes me want more.

This story is performed in alternating POV of the two main characters Anvil and Sarah . Kale Williams and Lisa Zimmerman are new to me but they make a good team.

I didn’t notice any issues with the audio production. I listened at 1.00x speed.

Quickies: The Ridge Brothers Bear Shifters: Boxed Set


Dominant Alfa Shifters And Their Fated Mates.

This is a complete set of stories for the Ridge Brothers Bear Shifters Series by Olivia T. Turner. These are also available individually, but this box set makes for a great value for your credits.

The series takes place during modern day, with a slight variation. Shifters are not a secret, but I get the impression it is not exactly a well known thing either. The fated mate plays heavily and is instant. These dominant males are very possessive, if not obsessed with their mates. Lots of insta lust/love. If that kind of details offends you, then you might want to pass.

I could of done without all the “virgins”, and some of the violence that is a bit over the top. I was left with a few logistical questions, but not that big of a deal for such short stories. There are great epilogues for each story, with the last book having the best.

This was my first listen by Olivia T. Turner, but I am open to more. I have already added some of her single titles to my library.

Cassandra Myles, Noel Harrison, Jack Stella, Meg Sylvan, Beth Roeg, Tristan James, Tor Thom, Lauren Sweet, all contributed performances to this box set. There is going to be someone you like more, but everyone is solid.

My Reviews

Quickies: York

Protective, Loyal, and Loves to Snuggle, Yes Please!

York is my favorite! I felt sad for him and his loneliness. He couldn’t find a potential mate that wasn’t scared of his species size and potential for violence. To be fair, the incidences recorded where in response to threats to their mates, but that didn’t seem to make a difference to the females.

Lucky for York, Sara was able to see past all the hype. She was coming from her own situations, and yes that is plural. I’m glad that all of those actions eventually led her to York, because Sara saved him too!

Of course it’s not that easy peasy. Both have to deal with the consequences of their actions. We get to see the Pods in action and it was Awesome! I want some hamby pamby cuties.

It’s steamy, and like the others, it carries a “Contains mature themes” warning. So you are warned.

Laurann Dohner really brought it with this title.

New Narrator, Samantha Summers was entertaining with both genders and various species of aliens.

Normal 1.00x speed works fine, but I listened at 0.95x speed. It just sounded better to me.

Overall I LOVED it! Next in series is Raff’s story!

Listened through Audible Escape.

My Reviews

Quickies: All Jacked Up

The Sheriff’s Sexy Vet Brother!

This is actually the third book in series, but…. it is listed as a standalone so I would like to eventually listen to the first 2 books. Personally, I found that distracting for the first half of the book with some questions never really getting addressed. They most likely were covered in book #2 about the sheriff, since a lot of those unknowns revolve around him. 🀷

This story is an excellent example of Murphy’s Law for Universal Truths. Jack and Avery have many interesting happenings from start to finish. Some are humorous, some are frustrating, with some being down right cringe worthy. All led to an entertaining end to what is actually a trilogy of standalones. 

I would of liked to of heard some of the steamy scenes that were only referenced after the fact. For those that like smexy, but less descriptive and with good characters, then this is a definite listen.

This is my first time with author Mysti Parker. She presented great characters I enjoyed. Anyone who can include both special needs animal rescue and a potty mouth parrot has my vote! πŸ˜‰

Meghan Kelly is not new to me. Her male voices could use some work, but I appreciated how she stayed in Jack’s “voice” while in his POV. Not all narrators do this.

I had to adjust the playback speed to improve the production. I listened at 1.10x speed.
