Willow Aster’s RUIN is now available on audio!!! Narrated by Alexandria Wilde and Joseph Discher!

I never wanted to be a royal.
I could leave that to my older brother and sister and be happy.
I’d rather see the world, experience life with unjaded eyes, and meet people who liked me based on something other than their expectations.
Gentry Barrington saw exactly who I was the first time we met, the real me.
My title wasn’t part of the equation.
It was our connection that made the impression…
And maybe our kiss that stopped time, it was so good.
He had no idea how young I was.
I had no idea how old he was.
But sometimes appearances did matter, and there were rules that must be followed…
Or else the forbidden became too alluring to ignore.

#Audio #BlogTour: Fighting For Faith by @AuthorAriaCole & Mila Crawford ~ 3.5 stars

Authors: Aria Cole and Mila Crawford

Narrators: Rachel Woods and Luke Parker

Length: 1 hours and 58 minutes

Series: Worth the Fight, Book 3

Released: Apr. 21, 2020

Publisher: Aria Cole

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Synopsis

Now a Top 100 Best Seller on Amazon!

Being infatuated with my childhood best friend was a beautiful curse. 

Our lives were an uphill struggle against every odd, but as long as we had each other…we had everything. Then it was all gone. 

Now I’ve built my life to perfection yet still yearning for that boy I used to know. Then one night, through a chance encounter, I see him. 

Riot James. 

He’s an MMA fighter with a beastly body, roped and corded with muscle and gleaming with sweat. His nose, reminiscent of a Roman gladiator, was bent a little like it’s been broken. A few times. 

It rattles me the way his intensely dark gaze lingers with mine. 

He’s familiar, determined, damaged, and there’s no escaping him. 

But with Riot, nothing is what it seems, and in the span of a single heartbeat, my perfect life is turned inside out. 

Again.

Review

A quick, steamy listen, Fighting For Faith reunites childhood best friends Jamie & Laura.

When they meet after so many years, it as if they never were separated. Now going by the names Riot & Faith in an attempt to lay their pasts to rest, the couple sets about relearning each other against the backdrop of the biggest fight of Riot’s pre-UFC career. Riot’s trainer, who also turns out to be Faith’s Uncle Lewis is the couple’s biggest obstacle.

It was endearing the way that Faith & Riot had both thought that they were each other’s ‘The One’ from adolescence, and decided to keep searching for each other until they were back together again. I enjoyed the epilogues, which gave us a glimpse into their lives up to a couple decades later.

I must say that the narration was done well. I liked the intonations and the way narrators seemed to immerse themselves in the plot.

This is a fun listen that I recommend.

I reviewed a complimentary copy of this audiobook.

Audiobook Review: Seducing the Surgeon – Single Daddy Romance by Michelle Love ~ 2 stars

Seducing the Surgeon: Single Daddy Romance

Blurb:

Love isn’t something I care about. Se* is a thing of the past.

I’m attractive, I’m wealthy, and did I mention I’m famous?

As the top surgeon in America, I can have anything I want.

Any house, any car, any woman, anything.

Anything. Except for the se*y new intern at the hospital.

She’s perfect in every way, but she’s off-limits.

Will that stop me?

I’m Royce Berkle – I don’t follow the rules.


Review

Kayla comes out to LA from Chicago to compete in a reality show starring her childhood crush, Dr. Royce Berkle. It is everything she imagined – plus more, until the cost of fame demands full payment.

This story started out pretty well, but as the plot progressed, I found the storyline a bit unbelievable. I rolled my eyes a lot. Also, it was quite the chore to listen to the narrator, as I found her voice to be rather robotic. Overall, it was just an okay listen for me.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this audiobook.

Audiobook Review: Code Red (Behind the Scenes at Parker Memorial #1) by Cerise Dalton ~ 3 stars

Code Red: Behind the Curtains at Parker Memorial, Book 1
She was hired to NOT do her job

I was hired by Parker Memorial Hospital to not do my job. Don’t stop the orgies in the morgue. Don’t stop the Environmental Services director from running her escort business from the hospital. And especially don’t stop Dr. Michael Ford from turning Parker Memorial into the country’s horniest hospital. My name is Cassie Thurmond and I’m determined to not do as I’m told.


Review

This is a weird, incredible story, but I couldn’t help but stay tuned to hear how everything was going to go down. I wasn’t sure who were the “bad” or “good” ones.

There was no real romantic development between Cassie & Michael. There were just a lot of steamy moments between them that didn’t exactly paint a picture of them being madly in love. Also, Cassie was too enticed/distracted by several other players for me to fully buy in to her and Michael’s sudden relationship in the end. The ending was incomplete, too. Probably to encourage us to get the next in the series?

The narration wasn’t bad, but there were a few mispronounced words.

This is definitely only for readers 18+.

’Tis the season for an office romance!

Working beyond nine to five and barely getting by, Melanie Thomas is eager to celebrate the impending holiday season and to toast the start of her dream marketing job over drinks with her boyfriend. Unfortunately, he has different plans – like seeing other women.

Indulging in a pity party with tequila, Melanie confides in a sexy stranger at the bar. It’s almost Christmas. One night of letting go won’t hurt anything, right? Turns out, it just might, when the stranger is her new boss. Determined to succeed at her job, Melanie won’t be scared away. This is her chance, even if her hot boss has her feeling all merry and bright and wishing for a less-than-professional relationship.

Matthew Ryans is burned out and on thin ice at the company he helped build, unless he gets his head back in the game. Yet, his head, both upper and lower, are quickly becoming obsessed with his new assistant. Still, he can’t seem to fully begrudge Melanie’s distracting presence and the Christmas joy she brings with it. Especially considering that her enthusiasm has him reenergized.

For once, he is longing for Mondays, but with his heart and job on the line, he can’t risk blurring the lines no matter how strong the lure of holiday mistletoe is.

Will their holiday passion be able to fuel mutual career success, or will it only get in their way in the New Year?

Narrator Bio

Verla Bond is an American actor, improvisor, and storyteller, who makes her home in Los Angeles, California. She enjoys performing on the stage and screen, but especially loves recording audiobooks, where she gets the privilege of playing all kinds of diverse characters, such as British vampires, Irish leprechauns, and Southern gentlemen.

TwitterFacebook

An intelligent, hard-working woman on the cusp of the job of her dreams, Melanie is stunned when she is the last to know that her boyfriend has decided to make their relationship more open than she would like. A handsome stranger overhears, and an alcohol-infused commiseration turns into a night neither one really remembers. Mortification settles into full-blown panic when both Melanie & Matthew realise the next day at work that they were each other’s one-night stands. Remaining professional at all times becomes harder & harder as they both realise that they might be the best thing to happen to each other personally & professionally.

The audiobook was good. Verla Bond’s voice was clear & expressive. I definitely would listen to more narrations by her.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Tara September. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

with Author Tara September
  1. Waffle fries or curly fries? – Neither. I like crispy steak frites … or McDonald’s fries, I know, but they are sooo good.
  2. GIF with a hard g or soft g? – Hard, like my men, lol.
  3. Fantasy or science-fiction? Hmm both, but if pressed I’d say Sci-Fi. Love me some Star Wars.
  4. Superman or Batman? – Superman! He’s super, it’s in his name after all. This is actually a debate the hero and heroine have in my holiday office romance, Mine to Five.
  5. Text message or call? – TXT! I have a phobia about having to sort out issues over the phone with strangers. Contest a bill or having to call customer service? Ugh the worst. So if I can just send a strongly worded email instead, even better! Even my besties have accepted that I’m not the friend that will chat on the phone for hours. Rather do that in-person or on my blog.
  6. Pancakes or waffles? – Waffles. It comes with built-in grooves to hold my syrup, whip cream and other toppings.
  7. Doctor Who or the Walking Dead? I haven’t seen either *ducks for cover*
  8. TV Shows or movies? Movies. I saw every film on the AFI 100 list before I graduated high school. My favorite actress is Katharine Hepburn.
  9. Facebook or Twitter? Twitter for fun, Facebook for business.
  10. Alice in Wonderland or Robinson Crusoe? Meh to both. But since Robinson Crusoe is technically considered the first novel ever, much is owed to Defoe for paving the way for today’s literature. <Tara tips imaginary hat and puts on imaginary opera gloves>
  11. Being too warm or too cold? I live in Florida for a reason.
  12. Netflix or Hulu? Netflix. I’m OG like that. I used to have their DVD rental service, lol.
  13. Work Hard or Play Hard? Play on player!
  14. Passenger or Driver? Driver, because in our family that means I have control of the radio and can play an audiobook or Yacht Rock Radio. Plus, I can never sleep in the car anyway, so I might as well drive.
  15. Amusement Park or Day at the Beach? In Florida we can do both 😉 I’m a huge Disney addict. Used to work for Disney corporate out in LA.
  16. Honesty or Other’s Feelings? Other’s feelings!
  17. Movie at Home or Movie at the Theater? Theater. About two-thirds of the way back, in the center of the row. If not, I’ll wait in the lobby eating nachos and sour patch kids until the next showing. My husband meanwhile will likely have given up and will see something else solo. Oh, and I LOVE previews. If we arrive after the previews, I’ll wait for the next showing, lol.

There’s a fine line between lust and hate.

I don’t care that Drew Merritt spent the last year transforming himself from grungy slob to sexy playboy. With messy, dirty blond hair and gorgeous eyes, his looks aren’t the problem.

His mouth is.

And the stupid things that come out of it.

But after an emergency strands us together, and he does his damnedest to take care of me…

Let’s just say there’s one thing we don’t clash on.

And it doesn’t involve talking.

I’ve despised Drew since I met him years ago. One weekend can’t change us that much, can it?

Spoiler alert: It doesn’t.

Except he left me a little keepsake.

And in nine months, I’ll have a surprise for Portland’s most notorious player.

JARED

If I had a dollar for every time Banner Morales made my heart skip a beat…

The heart everyone assumes is frozen over.

Her anger is . . . arousing.

Every glare from those fire-spitting eyes, every time she grits her teeth,

gets me . . . well, you know.

If I had a dollar for every time she’s put me in my place, I’d be an even richer man.

I’m a successful sports agent because I assume “no” means you’ll think about it.

I’m sure what you meant to say is “Coming right up.”

They say even rich men don’t always get what they want,

but those men don’t know how to play the game. The trick is to keep them guessing.

Take Banner. She assumes she’s winning, but this game?

She doesn’t even know how to play.

 

BANNER

If I had a dollar for every time Jared Foster broke my heart, I’d have exactly one dollar.

One night. One epic fail. One dollar…and I’m out.

I’ve moved on.

I’ve found success in a field ruled by men.

Anything they can do, I have done better.

They can keep the field while I call the shots, blocking them when I have to.

And Jared has the nerve to think he gets a second chance?

Boy, please. Go sit down. Have several seats.

I’ll just be over here ignoring the man carved from my fantasies with a lust-tipped chisel.

Oh, I didn’t say the struggle wasn’t real.

But I’ve got that one dollar, and Jared won’t have me.

Every scrapbook tells a story. Memories of friends, family…and murder?

Mousy housewife Kiki Lowenstein has two great loves: scrapbooking and her young daughter, Anya. But her happy family album is ruined when her husband, George, is found naked and dead in a hotel room.

As Kiki tracks down George’s murderer, she discovers his sordid secret life. Cruel taunts by George’s former flame compel Kiki to spout an unwise threat. When the woman is murdered, Kiki’s scissor-sharp words make her the prime suspect. She could be creating scrapbook keepsakes for the rest of her life – behind bars.

Supported by her loyal friends along with a little help (and a lot of stomach flutters) from the dashing Detective Detweiler, can Kiki cut the true killer out of the picture and design a new life for herself and Anya?

Book Blurb:

In a world of wealth and power, the rules of love and war are nothing as they seem.

Nora Randolph never wanted a life of luxury. But when her mother falls in love with the heir to the British throne, their small-town lives are uprooted and every little girl’s fantasy becomes her reality. All too quickly, she learns the dangers of running in circles with the world’s elite, especially when she attracts the attention of Winston Academy’s resident golden boy.

Asher Frederick has known nothing but favor and fortune. The son of London’s most influential family, his future has been written in stone since infancy. But a tragic childhood loss redirects his course, and revenge has been boiling in his blood for years. When innocent and unaware Nora lands in his path, it’s as if the universe hands him the ammunition to finally drag his enemy through the mud.

But as his plan for vengeance gets more twisted, so do his feelings for Nora. And as her immersion into the upper crust dives deeper, she struggles to keep the secret she’s been guarding for 18 years.

Heavy lies the crown, and when the ultimate betrayal blindsides her, will either of them survive the consequences that come crashing down on their heads?

Audio Book Release Blitz: Anticipating Temptation ~ 4 stars

Today we have the release of Randi Perrin’s audio book, Anticipating Temptation! This sexy romance is being narrated by Xe Sands—check it out and be sure to grab your copy today!

Title: Anticipating Temptation

Author: Randi Perrin

Narrator: Xe Sands

Genre: Contemporary Romance

About Anticipating Temptation:

Char Brown is overweight and underappreciated. But at least she has a boyfriend and a job she enjoys.

Wait, scratch that. He just broke up with her. Over text. And told her to lose weight.

Overly self-conscious about herself and a classic introvert, Char isn’t sure what she’s got going for her anymore.

But Darryl Drummond sure does, and he’s insistent that she’s worth more than she thinks. The only thing he likes more than wine is Char, and he’s not going to relent until she notices. He’s a shrewd businessman and he didn’t get that way on hoping things worked in his favor.

Armed with a magazine column and a newfound appreciation for wine, love, and herself, can she recover from the bruises her ex left behind? Or will she be destined to live in the shadows of her own failures for good?

Review

I liked this story, even though the plot isn’t the most original.

Xe Sand’s performance as narrator was amazing! I loved the way she changed her voice to embody the emotions in the characters’ voices. The way she made me feel Char’s emotions really made me enjoy the audio book. I liked her impersonation of Darryl’s voice a lot, too! #sexy

This is a sweet, heartwarming & sexy romance about a woman who who finally sees herself as good enough when she experiences love – real love – for the first time.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this audiobook.

 

About Randi Perrin:

English may be Randi’s first language, but she’s the most fluent in sarcasm, and it shows in her writing. She is known for creating snarky, realistic characters—badass heroines who can hold their own and flawed, yet lovable heroes. Like Randi, her characters run on caffeine and swear words.

Her characters are often built around dichotomy, much like Randi herself. Although she is the least romantic person in the world, she writes romance. She also refuses to pick a lane on the romance highway, sometimes writing contemporary, other times paranormal, but always smokin’ hot.

She is the author of the Earthbound Angels paranormal romance series, several contemporary romance novellas including Anticipating Temptation and Mi Amor, and a gay romance novella entitled Wreck You. She has also had several short stories published in anthologies. Her next full-length novel, a romantic comedy entitled All the Wrong Places, will be out in Summer 2019.
