Each month with my Audible membership I can select two Audible Originals, Junkyard Cats by Faith Hunter was one of those picks. Bots, a kickass heroine, killer cats and AIs made for an addictive tale.
Love and Other Wild Things by Molly Harper was another wild trip to Mystic Bayou, and I found a hundred and one reasons to keep my headphones on as I devoured this. I laughed until I had tears, gasped aloud, and dreamed about the perfect slice of pie.
I have had a craving for paranormal and urban fantasy and when offered a chance to review Kissed by a Dark Prince by Felicity Heaton the first in her Eternal Mates series I jumped. Heaton grabbed me from the very first chapters delighting me with her unique world, sexy alpha and superb narration.
I was totally in the mood for a good thriller and selected, The Nightwalker by Sebastian Fitzek, narrated by Robert Glenister. Both men were new to me, but the synopsis drew me in and I was delighted with this creeptastically twisted tale.
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.
The wait to get my hands on the audiobook of The Retribution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin seemed like a long one with the cruel cliffhanger I was faced with in The Evolution of Mara Dyer. The mind blowing, twisted, breath-holding plot continued and I removed my ear-buds both satisfied and spent. Hodkin gave us one heck of a ride with her unreliable narrator and twisted plot. Gads!
Do you ever start reading or listening to a book and almost immediately slip into the world and realize you are about to take an epic journey? That was my experience with the audio version of Lock In, the first book in the Lock In series by John Scalzi and narrated by Wil Wheaton. Lock In is a brilliantly told mystery crime thriller set in a futuristic science fiction world. The geek in me was completely giddy! The world was fascinating, frighteningly realistic and friggin cool my friends.
I listened to the audio version of Sugar Rush, the first book in the Cupcake Club by Donna Kaufman and narrated by Amanda Ronconi. Sugar Rush was a fun, predictable romance with cupcakes! It was friends, or should I say former associates to lover’s romance. Sugar Rush made me laugh, with its small –town setting, banter and community.
