KathyB  (kathybrown) | 684 comments I started Undeniably You by Jewel E. Ann Undeniably You by Jewel E. Ann today. Mixed reviews for this one, but I usually like her stories. I never know what's going to happen, definitely not formula romance!

L J | 366 comments Finished The Wolf's Secret Vegas Bride by Eve Langlais The Wolf's Secret Vegas Bride by Eve Langlais. I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Most reveals were foreshadowed enough that they came as no surprise but I could easily read it again and enjoy it. The character and world building were well done as was the pacing.
This is a Howls Romance. I've only read these when they are by authors I read. Others weren't terrible but pacing was strange like the author wasn't comfortable with the length or they read more like old style category romance than paranormal romance. The Wolf's Secret Vegas Bride makes me think about trying others when I want something quick to read.

KathyB  (kathybrown) | 684 comments I finished Hidden Away (KGI, #3) by Maya Banks Hidden Away by Maya Banks and really enjoyed it. The narrator (Harry Berkeley) was fantastic, perfect voice for alpha male characters.

Next up - Lucky Stars (Ghosts and Reincarnation, #5) by Kristen Ashley Lucky Stars by Kristen Ashley.

Ugly Love by Colleen Hoover

Melanie♥ (meliaann) | 134 comments I've not had much luck this month.
Bedfellows by Lola Leighton Menage light. No much to say about it. It did have three narrators, but the two male voices sounded so much alike that I got them confused. 3 stars.
Rebel Heir (Rush Duet, #1) by Vi Keeland and Rebel Heart (Rush Duet, #2) by Penelope Ward . I got through the first one (3 stars) but knew at the end I'd have a hard time with the sequel. I rarely dnf my audiobooks but I truly did not like where the story line went and I only got about 20% in before my dnf.
Mogul (Manhattan, #2) by Katy Evans Middle of the Road
Aiden (Vested Interest, #2) by Melanie Moreland I usually really like this author, but this one was another dnf.
Bentley (Vested Interest, #1) by Melanie Moreland Another middle of the road with a not very believable insta-love.
So August.....not so good so far!

Sometimes you got to go back to those comfort authors.


message 21: by Tiam (new)

Tiam O | 9 comments Listened to the Irresistible series by Stella Rhys and thoroughly enjoyed it. I have to say that the best book was the last one, called Hothead. Hot is an understatement. It’s narrated by Cassandra Myles and John Masterson. They both did a fantastic job, but WOW! That’s some hot, hot writing and dialogue. I blushed for them. I’m so glad the narrators are good at what they do. I highly recommend the series.

Keeper Chronicles is sometimes described as romance but it is more paranormal than romance.
Summon the Keeper (Keeper Chronicles #1) by Tanya Huff Summon the Keeper #1
The Second Summoning (Keeper Chronicles, #2) by Tanya Huff The Second Summoning #2
Probably read later:
Long Hot Summoning (Keeper Chronicles #3) by Tanya Huff Long Hot Summoning #3
Since I am waiting for Magic Triumphs (Kate Daniels, #10) by Ilona Andrews Magic Triumphs, Ilona Andrews Magic Stars (Kate Daniels, #8.5, Grey Wolf, #1) by Ilona Andrews Magic Stars which implies a future romance but Julie is a bit young so Derek is waiting.

I really did NOT understand this one at all! It was nice... the different stories.. but I never knew what was actually happening, or what she was dreaming.. idk.

Hi Ashley...in the beginning I thought so too. However, she was giving two sides of her "What If". What if she bailed on her best friends wedding or what if she attended. Two different outcomes. I guess the back and forth got a bit confusing but it came together for me.


message 32: by Debby*BabyDee (new)

Debby*BabyDee | 475 comments Okay...Jonetta had me pulled in on All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover by Colleen Hoover..... so that's what I am listening to at the moment.

Afterwards, I will finish out Girls' Night Out by Liz Fenton by Liz Fenton

Tiam O | 9 comments I just started The Hating Game by Sally Thorne and narrated by Katie Schorr. About 20 minutes, and I like the narrator’s voice. The book is well-written and funny so far. I might just have to listen to this one only at work.

No sorries necessary. All Your Perfects by Colleen Hoover All Your Perfects was a wonderful, teary and heartfelt story that had me from beginning to the end. It was worth delaying the other book and I truly thought it was great. 5-Stars on that one and I rarely give five stars.

Haven't had a really good book in a while and that was a very refreshing story.

hammerpixie | 73 comments Just finished:

Spinning Silver
Spinning Silver by Naomi Novik
by Naomi Novak

This was a surprisingly excellent listen. Very unique.

The Russian accents were great.
The females were so strong.
The males were multi-layered.
Love story was unpredictable, yet wholly believable.

I'll definitely listen to this book again.

I finished If You Only Knew by Kristan Higgins If You Only Knew by Kristan Higgins. The relationship between the sisters was the highlight, as well as the adorable triplets. Light on romance but it worked for me, I loved it.

Next up - Assumption (Underground Kings, #1) by Aurora Rose Reynolds Assumption by Aurora Rose Reynolds
