Narrator Stephen Van Doren boldly delivered the third book of one of the darkest paranormal series this year. His extraordinary ability to bend those talented vocal cords from low to high pitches, and manipulate his baritone voice into a beautiful rich timbre reading voice, enabled him to perform a smartly plotted historical recount of the first vampire.

I loved this very much, it’s my favorite part: “Heaven rang with the sound of fucking music. All of us so fucking happy. The thought of it now, makes me want to choke on my own vomit, Or vomit down someone else’s throat, and make them choke.”

Warning: The satire in this series is sweeter, bitter and thicker than molasses. This is not for the sensitive narrow minded. It is chock-a-block full of paranormal definitions explaining the the birth of vampires, the creation, the fall, even the destruction of dinosaurs. Was this book written 400 years ago, Sean Kerr would surely join the Salem witch trials, like the “baptism by fire” of Old Believer leader Avvakum in 1682
I absolutely recommend this book and it has to be enjoyed as the author intended. This book won’t makes sense as a stand alone.

Narrator Michael Ferraiuolo is the king of paranormal romance! This narrator does very well with dialogues, especially his deep gruff pirate/dragon voice. He absolutely sounds like he is having as much fun as I with these dragons. I am such a sucker for big age differences, but this one takes the cake. The cover photo is stunning, the silver fox caught my attention immediately.

I am not a big fan of mpreg, but this tale is about dragons, and dragons are magical creatures who lay eggs. Swallow a.k.a Walter or Wally was rescued from and taken in by Grimbold. This dragon is extremely old, we are talking thousands of years old. His dragon immediately wanted Wally, and Grimbold had to fight his inner dragon and his weird unknown urges to make Wally his, lure him in and then seduce him. This is such a beautiful, funny and yet, extremely sexy short story.

I listened to book one in the Forbidden Desires series then again to this book and I caught on very fast.

I do recommend this audiobook, especially if you love older dragons loving younger omegas.

Dual Narrators Sean Crisden and Felicity Munroe delivered the most irritating airhead heroine of the year. Their usual charisma, and fantastic narration could not save Hanna’s stupidity. She has no brain cells,,, at all.

The biggest mystery to me is how she was ever able to write a book and to top it all off with, getting movie rights for it. I guess it is not realistic to expect all the female characters in the Ice home series to be the same with the same likable personalities. Why this one couldn’t die or be eaten by the big bird fucking eludes me.
She nags, she is self-absorbed, she plays yo-yo with her mate and once she finally gave in to having sex with him, she manipulates the poor guy. She moans and complains that she is irritated with her mates’ preparation for killing the massive carnivorous bird outside their cave. It’s not only their safety but also, the rest of the inhabitants of Ice home living on the shore line.

While her mate is busy target practicing with his spears and nets she starts massaging him. WTF, why didn’t she help him make nets? She sleeps all day and do needle work. I’m so over these books! They live off fruit, but feel how weak they get from the empty carbohydrates. OMG! Fruits have lots of vitamins. Much more than meat. Has no one heard of Scurvy?

I only recommend this audiobook if you love airheads! This is why I stick to M/M genres.

Narrator Aiden Snow and author A.E. Via managed to accomplish total obliteration of all future enjoyment of life until books 2 and 3 becomes available! The cherry on the fucking cake is that no one bothered to warn me about the pending annihilation. The indefectible delivery by Aiden, the way he uses his smokey deep voices for these stupidly sexy alpha males, is causing me to go rabid, wanting to tear up, hump, drool and link anything with a bulge.

So, my mama taught me to do onto others what I want to be done to myself.

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!

Before you listen to this book, make sure your Rabies shots are up to date! It’s not that it ends in a cliffhanger, the fact that I go lyrical is that it is so fucking short and I want more.

I absolutely recommend this audiobook. I want you to experience the same type of sudden unsatisfiable hunger for alpha men.

Dual Narrators Sean Crisden and Felicity Munroe delivered a funny heartfelt tale unique only to Ruby Dixon. These two narrators blend together like sunshine and happiness. I could not stop smiling while listening to them perform. That includes some ugly reverse sneezing sounds and tears definitely not brought on by sadness. Our heroine is pregnant, stranded on an ice planet with two emotionally stupid alien gladiators fussing about her. This is a guaranteed pick me upper.

I definitely recommend this audiobook if you like Ruby Dixon at her best.

Narrator John Solo delivered his traditional and always above average performance of this new pioneering take on vampires and other supernatural beings.

This sexy series was kickstarted by a father who adopted to raise and protected his children from supernatural forces, they never really, truly believed existed. As such, their true heritage is revealed as the shit hits the fan, right after their father died and trouble finds them. This audiobook surprised me with lots of action and funny rantings, with twists and turns leaving an opening to more promising audiobooks in the series.

Talon is a sexy vampire with the usual vampire traits, but his personality traits and John Solo’s deep voice made this romance alluring and interesting.

I recommend this audiobook if you like paranormal romances.

Narrator Joel Leslie gave an entertaining, yet hilarious performance of this ludicrous playful sci-fi series. His unique ability to portray “stupid” cracked me up which caused several drinks to be reverse snorted through my delicate nasal passages.

The author’s ingenuity and creative vision carried my off to a world I couldn’t predict nor foreseen. The characters and the world building, together with the “Omega- verse” is 100% believable and realistically done. This was not just a concept taken out of thin air, but rather built on from the start of this series. The secondary characters are exceptionally well developed as well, I ended up hoping I can see a movie made from this series.

The cleverness and wit is so unexpected which made this one of those series I would definitely listen to again. I’m going to put it forward for a 2020 Blue Encores nomination.

I definitely recommend this series. It is longer than the usual, but since it’s so full of epic shits, laughs and drama, it felt way too short for me.

Happy Listening

Narrator Brad King managed to entice, allure and totally engrossed me with his rich smoky voice and sexy russian accent. I listened to this book in one sitting and can not wait for the second book. Although the theme was familiar the storyline and excellent narration made it unique and tremendously enjoyable.
The cover is a perfect representation of what Valentin was described in the book. It shows lots of attention was given to the decision on what to slap on s a cover.
Love, love , love it! I will definitely vote this one as the best cover of the year!

This book has angst, beauty, hot sex and lots of drama. It does not end in cliffhanger, but it does leave a to be continued card, because which mobster will let his property go without a fight. These young men are his slaves, they are his dancers and after the concerts they are to keep his friends happy. Mother fucker needs a screwdriver into his eye socket.
I recommend this book, it was fresh and absolutely enjoyable.

My favorite couple of the year!

Narrator Darcy Stark delivered a perfect full circle, love conquers all and shit happens while every dog has his day. His smooth delivery is sensual and unique.

Lucky Lucklighter makes a 180, he gets the dog, the house and the lover. The perfect Christmas story to listen to this season. We have a surprise or two, which I almost saw coming, but started to think I am imagining things. Turns out, not so fucking much. I am still good to go, no need for meds yet.

Doing a happy dance.....💃

Yes, definitely listen to this one. In the order the author intended.

I couldn't continue the self torture past the fifth chapter.
It is very appropriate for Young Adults still learning about coming out at school.
Too innocent for my taste, not my cup of tea.
