Narrator Walker Williams skillfully carried this very heavy romance over the finish line. He has a beautiful smooth voice with a steady cadence, which is sometimes difficult to manage, when dialogues are continues with not much breaks for the listener to be able to digest the storylines and the purpose thereof.
This is a typical road trip audiobook, where you have nothing else to do but to listen and concentrate on two love stories.

Narrators Philip Alces and Joel Leslie melted my insides with their smoking hot, yet sweet as honey voices. They are the perfect dual narration team for this threesome. My favorite line by Philip Alces: "I was wrecked, these men shattered me, and I loved every fucking second of it!"

The Haven Hart series is an absolute winner. Every book is a surprise, and by now I can surely guarantee that it won't disappoint. It has the perfect amount of surreal intrigue, suspense with raw gore and of course hot sex scenes. The sex is not overpowering the plot. Triple Threat is gripping with humorous injections, and it has the most lovable main characters.

I recommend this book as part of the series, it's not going to be enjoyed as much as a standalone.

Narrator Michael Ferraiuolo delivered this hilarious romantic comedy with a vengeance. His narration matched the intense energy as Alice Winters most definitely intended. It is so fucking good! This was such a "pick me up". This audiobook bitch slapped me wide awake at 2 am in the morning, I just couldn't stop listening causing me to pull an all-nighter.
Kudo's to the author/narrator team. I will most definitely recommend this audiobook for a Blue Encore 2020, my first one for 2020!

I absolutely recommend this audiobook. It's so funny, don't skip this one!

This was such a surprise in all the ways an audiobook addict can be surprised.
Narrator Troy Duran shot himself out of orbit, by surpassing all my previous opinions and expectations about his level of performances. He engulfed himself emotionally, totally and absolutely into this reading. I enjoyed this second book much more than the first one. I brushed up yesterday on book one and was kind of disappointed to see a new narrator for book two, but oh, my goodness gracious me! I am so glad I was wrong!
The sexy deep barrotone of his voice and presentation of all the different characters, it felt like I was watching a movie or listening to a multicast.
The plot has a fresh new twist, it's different and original, I did not see this development in the plot coming. The author has tremendous talent, I haven't listened to a single book that disappointed me. The things the characters say, are funny and original.

I definitely recommend this series. Listen to book one first before you tackle this beautiful monster!

Narrator John Solo delivered another flawless well-rounded performance filled with boy-daddy loving and dramatic family tension in this contemporary romance.
The plot in this second book is very familiar. I was disappointed. The first book probably spoiled me. I was hoping for the same type of astonishment, but it was just a continuation of all the family drama being resolved and tied up with a pretty bow.
This is where I bow out.
I recommend this audiobook if you like absurd family drama.

Narrator John Solo delivered a deep, yet inspirational young love story in time for Christmas. John's performance was solid as usual, he has tremendous talent instilling aggressive and angsty emotions. At times I feel like shouting at anything and anybody, but that's dangerous if you are listening to your book while using public transport. If I don't watch myself the men with white jackets might wait for me at the next stop. I should wear a sign or a T-shirt saying ignore me, I'm listening to an audiobook!

The plot was real, and very believable. Great character development and world building.
I do recommend this audiobook, especially if you want to experience christmas romance.

Happy Listening.

Narrator Bolton Hill smoothly delivered the hottest rock star romance I heard in a long time. His delivery was easy on the ears and extremely sexy. The natural cadence of his voice and deep smoky rumbles put him definitely on my favorite list of narrators. The plot has lots of sexy times, and tons of erotic twists and turns. My heart bled for Rick Fars, he needs love like any other human being and in his quest to find it, he has been used until, he finally realized he wanted more for himself, and pursued it.
I recommend this audiobook for when you want some extreme hot and sexy times, but with some hidden deeper meaning.

Narrator Michael Pauley delivered a funny as f@#k audiobook with the most lovable two main characters. He definitely enjoyed as much as I did. His performance was flawless and loaded with lots of energy.

I enjoyed Charlie tremendously. He said the funniest things, and I'm going to borrow some of those things for myself. This guy is absolutely a trend setter, and the author succeeded in portraying a character fit to be a social media guru. Ky has a strong personality and between the two of them sparks fly in all directions. I'm usually not a fan of musicians and their shit. Probably because I don't idolize anyone and nobody. Give me a rough biker or a sexy rich pompous dude, and I'm happy as a pig....

These guys are sober, in love and I did not have to suffer through overdone dramatic drama.

It is definitely a recommended audiobook. I'm a little confused about the timeline for Charlie's parents. I will go back to book one to re-listen and get all my ducks in a row.

Happy Listening.

Narrator John Solo delivered one of the most original science fiction stories I have heard in this genre. His extraordinary capability to bend his voice box in different directions ensured a journey into the farthest corners of outer space. The immense imagination of the author had me shaking my head and talking to myself, a little more than usual. The plot, dipped a little in the middle, we struggled to get moving, but as we reached the end I couldn't imagine what the next book be all about.

Will we see a war? The bloody stupid humans always want more and more and more!

I definitely recommend this series. I can see myself lying on the beach in Cancun and re-listen to the series.

Narrator Michael Pauley delivered a short and fast one. I feel his delivery was not as enthusiastic as he delivered the previous two books for Davey's rules. I was pleasantly surprised to hear that this is the story about Davey's father.

I was immediately on board to hear a yummy daddy, assistant district attorney rescuing a pretty boy for himself. I love sugar daddy romances. I was a bit disappointed in the length of the book. The lack of character building. We had lots of Christmas. Christmas shopping, Christmas gifts and even a Christmas puppy. We had some kinky Santa and his elf times, but it was not as hardcore daddy-boy play, as the previous books. I suspect the author wanted to gift us with a sweet daddy-boy romance.

I recommend this audiobook, if you like something to curl up with in front of the window, while it snows outside while you enjoy a hot cup of coco.
