Avon Romance gifted me a copy of DANGEROUS GAMES by Tes Diamond, and as soon as I read the blurb, I knew I had to read it. Diamond delivered a gripping FBI thriller with strong characters and a touch of heat. I devoured this novel in one sitting and cannot wait for more of the O’Connor & Kincaid series.
FAN THE FLAMES by Kate Ruggle is the second book in the Search and Rescue series and will work as a standalone. I have had this series on my wishlist and in fact, own this on my Kindle. When a chance to review the audio version came along, I jumped. Suspense, awkwardness, and adorkableness made FAN THE FLAMES an addictive listen.
HARD JUSTICE by Lori Foster delivered a suspenseful and romantic tale featuring former MMA cage fighter, Justice Wallington, as he takes on his first solo protection duty. HARD JUSTICE delivered a knockout punch with heat, heart, and suspense.
I was in the mood for a good historical romance and decided to listen to HIGHLAND SPY by Madeline Martin. The audio narrated by Dave Gillies promised female spies, assassins, and romance. From the exciting missions to the slow building romance, Martin had me hooked.
DARE TO LIE by Jen McLaughlin is the third audiobook in the Sons of Steel Row, contemporary romantic suspense series set in streets of Boston. DARE TO LIE story belongs to Scott(y) Donahue an undercover DEA agent and acting member, of the Sons of Steel Row. I have been waiting for his story, and McLauglin delivered giving me, suspense, heat, and heart.
I was intrigued by the synopsis of STEALING MR. RIGHT by Tamara Morgan, it reminded me a little of the movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith. An FBI agent married to a jewel thief sounded like a fun afternoon escape. While the back and forth timelines were jarring at times, STEALING MR. RIGHT delivered humor, an exciting heist and lots of twists.
If you have been following Caffeinated then you know I am a huge fan of the Others series by Anne Bishop. I own the series in all formats available (expect paperback) and must first listen to the narration performed by Alexandra Harris before rereading the hardcover edition. Obsessed? Maybe, but I love the world and characters Bishop has created. ETCHED IN BONE, the fifth novel and the last novel featuring the characters from Lakeside takes us back to the Courtyard as humans, and the others live side by side.
Silence Fallen by Patricia Briggs is the tenth novel in the wildly popular Mercy Thompson urban fantasy series. Trouble has a way of finding Mercy and this time she ends up alone and in Europe. From the non-linear timeline to the Doctor Who comments I loved Silence Fallen.
THE BONE WITCH by Rin Chupeco is a character driven fantasy with an original premise. I was drawn to its alluring cover and the necromancy. Chupeco takes us to a world divided into kingdoms where magic and tradition are scared and feared. From her beautiful prose to the promise of things to come, I was intrigued.
I am always up for trying a new to me author on audio, especially when it comes to thrillers. DISTRESS SIGNALS by Catherine Ryan Howard offered up a thrilling missing person’s mystery with twists and turns that kept me listening into the wee hours.
