Review: Flux (Starblind, #3) by D.T. Dyllin

My ReviewsThe Best So Far! Love Zula And Cade!

Flux is #03 of 04 in Starblind Series by D.T. Dyllin. All 4 are currently published with 3 of them being on Audio. The author has confirmed that #4 is the final book in the series and is in audio production to be on Audible soon.

Ashley Holt narrates the series.

HEA with no cliffhanger!

This series is only 4 books long and is heavily connected by characters and overall story arc so I recommend reading the books in order. It is not only more enjoyable that way, but you will miss out on a lot of details if you read them out of order.

Length: 6 hrs and 58 mins

Content Warning:
Sex both in thoughts and actions, so if you do not like sex, then you should avoid.


♥ Story ♥

Zula ❤ Kade

Flux picks up with Zula’s captivity. You find out what the kidnappers did to her, how she got away, and what happened in the interim.

This was a fun listen! A nice turn of story after the intensity and feels of book #2. I think it’s the best so far!


Zula

Zula is a Galvraron. A humanoid species with blue skin and blonde hair. This appearance is what spawns the human culture obsessed Jane to nickname her Smurfette! As you could guess, she hates it! She is second in command on The Pittsburgh and usually the levelheaded one, however, her encounter with a new piece of tech sends that to hell in a hand-basket!

Letting her emotions loose, turns Zula into Jane, and it is a fun ride. We get to learn more about her life, why she left on The Pittsburgh, and who she is actually related to. Kade is a good counter balance to Zula’s overly logical mind.

Kade

Kade is a mercenary, sent by Zula’s parents to bring her home. He has his own secrets and ties to her family. They are good too! To say any more would be spoilers, so if you want to get details, please see my Read Along for it.


The Starblind series just keeps getting better! The plot thickens as we head into the final book! Nina is the heroine of that story and it is set into motion toward the end of Flux by Jane. I’m excited to listen to it when it hits audio soon, but sad that this series will be over. I don’t know how its all going to go down, but I just know it is going to be epic!

Review: Intercepted by Love: Part 1 by Rachelle Ayala


My Reviews


First Steps in a New Romance!

Intercepted by Love: Part 1 is quite literally that, the first title in the Quarterback’s Heart Series out of 6, by Rachelle Ayala.

Chris Abell narrates.

Cliffhanger!
Cade and Andie’s story continues in Part 2.

Being the first, it could be read as a standalone, but I always advise to read in order to get the most out of the experience.

Length: 2 hrs and 54 mins

Content Warning: The author lists this series as (Steamy)

♥ Story ♥

This title is currently available as part of the Audible Romance Package. The ebook counterpart is available through the Kindle Unlimited program.

Cade Prescott is a professional quarterback hiding out after a Super Bowl loss, as well as other bad press. He meets Andie Wales in the library while she is doing research on bad boys of old. They may not have a love connection at first, but their dogs have no issue taking things to the next level. While dealing with the health and welfare of their future litter, things shift for these canine owners.

Cade’s past can’t be avoided, and there are others in town that also want to make a name for themselves. Particularly a co-worker that will inspire you to want to commit fictional violence. You can read my rant in my First Impressions post for more details.

This story ends in a cliffhanger, so you may want to go ahead and get the whole series now so you can easily go on to part 2! All parts are on the Audible’s Romance Package. I am going to have to do this myself, because I am impatient and I gotta find out how it all ends!

Rachelle Ayala writes just as good dirty as she does clean! Her heros and heroines inspire just as much love as her villians inspire fictional murder!

Chris Abell did well with all the characters he voiced, especially the villians. Falling in love can be easy, but invoking hate from the pit of your gut takes talent!

Review: Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok by Jim McCann

My ReviewsAdds back-story to the characters


Marvel’s Thor: Ragnarok is based on the recent film of the same name and is written by Jim McCann.

MacLeod Andrews narrates.

Length: 3 hrs and 13 mins



♥ Story ♥

I listened to this before I saw the movie, however I am not concerned with spoilers. I decided to wait to write this review until I had watched the movie so I could compare for those of you who DO have an issue with spoilers. Now after seeing the movie, I can say that you really won’t be spoiled much if you listen to this first.

This is more of an ‘addition to’ rather than a ‘retelling of’ the movie. So if you are looking to get the movie in an ebook/audiobook, you are not going to get it. It essentially ends at the midpoint of the movie. If anything, you get more back-story on the situations and characters than you will get on the screen. Just like any page to screenplay adaptation, much is lost in the translation because its just not cinematic enough.


Sighing, he tried again. “Tony Stark is a genius.”
— Thor


This has 2 stories within it. It was a bit confusing at first because that is not made clear in the audio. I thought I had hit a button on my tablet and it was re-starting. I was able to get the ebook version from my local library, which helped greatly.

There is the ‘main story’ which is more from the perspective of Thor. It starts roughly where the movie starts and conclude with our hero’s leaving the trash planet. Then there is a ‘bonus’ story THOR: RAGNAROK: A NEW STORY which is more from the perspective of Hulk. This one starts back at the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron with Hulk’s self-imposed exile. You get a lot of incite into Hulk that was definitely not in the movie.


“Thor friend. Thor stay!”
— Hulk


Most of the character’s encountered and situations spoke of, you would of seen in previews, chat messages, or interviews, etc., so not much to be spoiled by. But for those that live under rocks and have not seen any other Marvel movies, you may find it spoilery.

I found that it added ‘More’ to the story. There are also some bits and one liners that were funnier in the audio than they were in movie! I was really hoping that they would make it to the screen because they were hilarious. If you are one of those people that like all the little nuances to the overall big picture, then this will be right up your alley whether or not you listen to it before or after you watch the movie.

I loved getting the ‘Hulk’ opinion. There is also a scene between Thor and Banner that is priceless! I felt this listen enhanced my movie experience and would recommend it to anyone who wants that little something extra.

Jim McCann did a great job with this addition to the Marvel World. I felt it properly portrayed and honored the characters as well as adding value.

♥ Story ♥

Madison ❤ Luke

Two wounded souls come together in the most delicious way!

This is a SPICY story!

There is a lot of dirty talk and HOT action, so if you don’t like that kind of stuff, please pass.

If you DO like it, then please enjoy!


Madison Atwood

Looking for an escape from the paparazzi and tabloids after a very public divorce, Madison retreats to Avalon Springs. She is hoping to ‘find herself’ on the mountainside haven. What she finds is a hunky mountain man who helps her ‘find’ her sexy parts in the best way!

Luke Dawson

Wanting to avoid cities and large crowds has led Luke to live in his secluded cabin in the woods. When he finds Madison naked in his hot springs, he can’t help wanting her. A snow storm traps them inside together and their lust can no longer be denied.


Did I mention Sexy Times!

Yum!


This was fan yourself good!
I think it went on a little too long and maybe could of done without the teary moment in the back half, but overall it worked. It gets a girl excited to listen to more. If you are like me and like some hot sexy fun times to go with good character driven stories, then this is a listen for you!



♥ Author ♥

This is my 1st read/listen by Meredith Wild and Chelle Bliss. Since this is a joint effort, I will have to rate them both the same, which is sexy hot! I loved the characters plus all the dirty talk and action! I will be looking into more from these ladies for sure.

♥ Narrator(s)♥

Jennifer Mack and Lance Greenfield alternate on this title by chapter point of view. They both did an excellent job with both story and character. I did prefer Lance’s voice when it came to Luke. Jennifer did a good job, which would of been great if she was solo on this. Unfortunately for her, Lance’s sexy gruff was just so much sexier. In an ideal world, when there are more than one narrator, the ‘voice’ of any character would be done by the same person regardless of point of view.

Review: Playing Without Rules (Men of Spring Baseball #1) by Rachelle Ayala

My ReviewsThe truth always has a way of finding the light.


Playing Without Rules is Book 1 of 4 in the Men of Spring Baseball Series by Rachelle Ayala.

There are currently only 2 available in audio, but the rest are due soon!

Tor Thom and Charley Ongel narrate the series.
(They are an awesome duo!)

HEA with no cliffhangers!

Being the first in the series, this could be read as a standalone. I personally would suggest starting with the novella.

Length: 4 hrs and 23 mins

Content Advisory:
Author’s Heat rating is Steamy: Sex and lovemaking shown with naughty words for body parts. Love and lust intertwined, but couple is monogamous.




♥ Story ♥

This is a tale of second chances. If you are into those kinds of tales, then you are going to like this. As a mom, I can relate to wanting whats best for your child. I didn’t quite agree with some of Marcia’s actions, but could understand the logic behind her choices.


Marcia ❤ Brock


Marcia

Marcia Powers told a lie four years ago over a miscommunication and has been running from it ever since, despite never leaving her small town. The holes she digs for herself just keep expanding, as all lies do. Bianca is the one that truly suffers in the wake of her mother’s delusions of grandeur.

Brock

Brock Carter did what the love of his life asked of him and left town to pursue his baseball career. He wanted to make himself worthy of her heart. Now he’s back, and determined to claim his dream, but Marcia doesn’t want him to have anything to do with her or her “little sister”. A child that just happens to be close in age to the time frame he left town, but that thought never occurs.

I had more feels for Brock and the other members of Marcia’s family than I did for her. She is a sloppy stack of pancakes on a good day, and she is a bit of a hypocrite. Luckily, the extra personalities balances everything out. There is a sneak peak at the end for Book 02, Playing Catch and it is quite amusing. I can’t wait!
