OMG! I love the Kate Daniels series on audio. Renee Raudman is a fantastic narrator and Ilona Andrews is brilliant! Magic Blends rocked my world. Listen, I never, and I mean never read or listen to a series books back to back. I usually wait two or three weeks between them, but I dove right into Magic Bleeds after finishing Magic Strikes. I am so glad that I did. Magic Bleeds was action packed with relationship advancement and so much humor I had tears streaming down my face as I cackled.
Bringing Home the Bad Boy by Jessica Lemmon is one of those sweet, sexy, shed a tear, heart-skip-a-beat, fall in love and swoon type of romance. It’s the kind of story you cannot set down. From the characters to the setting I slipped into this second chance romance every chance I could.
Firefight is the second book in the Reckoners series by Brandon Sanderson. I began reading this series, but after listening to the short story, Mitosis, I decided to switch formats. MacLeod Andrews does an awesome job of bringing the characters, particular David to life. If Superheroes and villains make you grin, then you will enjoy the post-apocalyptic world Sanderson has created.
The Great Zoo of China is an intense thriller with over the top scenes and high body count. It was in a word, awesome. Fans of thrillers and science fiction who can overlook the improbability of it all will love the action, characters and creepy intelligence of the spectacular creatures Reilly introduces.
I have been on a bit of an urban fantasy binge and thanks to my new audio addiction; I have finally begun checking series off my tbr pile and wish list. I owned Succubus Blues but upgraded to the audio and I loved Elisabeth Rodgers narrative. Succubus Blues was fun, with an interesting cast of characters and a mysterious murder mystery. Georgina Kincaid is inquisitive, unique and a coffee lover. I have a feeling we are going to be friends.
If the Viscount Falls is the fourth and final, book in Sabrina Jeffries Duke’s Men series. Finally, we get Dominick Manton story and with it we get second chance romance, a little mystery and updates on previous characters. Jeffries kept me engaged as I hoped for happily ever after.
Edge by Tiffinie Helmer is the first in the Romance on the Edge series offering up romantic suspense in the picturesque setting of Alaska. Edge offers suspense, romance and complex characters. It has a small-town feel with a backdrop that will have you drooling.
Charlotte Stein is back with Forbidden the second novella in her Under the Skin series. She weaves taboo into her erotic tales with unique characters and while this was not necessarily, a favorite you cannot help but appreciate her take on it.
I have been enjoying the Sweet, Texas series by Candis Terry. She delivers small-town romances with a touch of heat, family and delightful characters. While Sweet Surprise will not earn a place among my favorites, it was a sweet romance filled with fun, cupcakes and the second half had me smiling.

Open Endings can be both wonderful and infuriating but most of the time I actually like them. I know some of you are rolling your eyes and yes there have been times when we are left wondering if somehow we are missing the final pages in our ARC or finished copy. Truth be told though, most of the time I kind of prefer them…
