About The Shark & I:

They tell you there are plenty of fish in the sea, but nobody mentions the sharks. Plunge into this hot, hilarious audio-first romance by USA Today bestselling author Cara Lockwood!

Getting back into the dating scene is never easy, but imagine my surprise when I sign up for a dating app and get matched with my new business rival.

Rich, mysterious and gorgeous, Peter is controlling my company’s high-stakes merger. Everyone says he’s a cutthroat corporate shark who takes no prisoners and guts companies with ruthless precision. But the more I get to know that man behind the expensive suit, the more I see hidden depths that no one else knows about.

Peter and I can’t deny our attraction. But are his feelings real, or does he just want inside information about the merger? And when another boardroom power-player makes his interest known, I start to wonder…am I falling for the wrong shark?

One thing is clear: in the world of dating, nothing is simple…but risking it all just might lead to the life of your dreams.

Exclusive Excerpt:

“I’m going to kiss you now,” Peter said, in a tone that told me in no uncertain terms he was a man used to declaring what he wanted and going for it.

“I…. don’t normally kiss on the first date,” suddenly feeling my stomach burst into a quivering flower of nerves. First kisses could go so very wrong. Teeth bashing, misplaced lips, awkward tongue collisions. And, I really, really didn’t want this first kiss to be awkward. I wanted it to be… more. Then, there was the other reason I wasn’t so sure I wanted to kiss him right then, namely because I didn’t trust myself right at this moment to keep it strictly to a kiss. It had been so long since I’d been intimate, at the first little rev of my engine, I might throw off my clothes and take him right there, in full view of God and the neighbors.

“Can you make an exception… for me?” Peter asked, all the while moving closer, as he reached up and stroked my cheek, swiping a bit of hair from my forehead. He was asking me now and I realized no part of me wanted to deny him. All good reason left my brain then. I couldn’t think of a single reason why kissing would be a bad idea.

“Maybe,” I murmured. Then he swept in, gently pressing his lips against mine. It began softly, respectfully, a press of the lips together, before it turned into something… more. My lips parted and suddenly I tasted him, perfect warmth and sweetness, and I felt heat moving through me. He knew exactly what he was doing, an expert kisser. As he pulled me to him, the dry brush of my body lit up like a raging wild fire as the need for this, for him, consumed me. Suddenly, I wanted him, a yawning, hungry want. Before I knew what I was doing, I’d slipped over to his seat, between him and the steering wheel. I hadn’t straddled a man in the front seat since… high school, but somehow, it just felt right.

The kiss continued into a full-blown make-out session. His hands were in my hair, running down my back, cupping my butt as he groaned in my mouth. The sound sent me into overdrive and I could feel how badly he wanted me as I pressed my weight into his lap. I didn’t care that we were parked in the street, or that Mom might be spying on us at that very moment from the windows in my living room. For this brief moment, beneath the warm glow of the dashboard lights, we were on our own planet, connecting in a way that I hadn’t connected with a man in a long, long time.

Yours to Bare by Jessica Hawkins is now in audiobook!


AUDIOBOOK NEW RELEASE: Yours to Bare
FINN
No matter how cruel it’s been to me in the past, I’ve never been able to flip fate the bird. I’m a romantic at heart. So when fate drops a leather-bound journal at my feet, I know I should walk away.
I don’t. I pick her up, bend her spine, spread her pages. From the first word, I’m a goner. The owner didn’t give me access to her most intimate desires, but I devour them anyway. Her private darkness, her candid, sensual poetry–it all goes down like warm milk. And from that point forward, I drink, eat, and sleep her.
HALSTON
I went to his apartment and let him take my picture. Just once, to see how it would feel. I’m not his to look at, to inspire, to touch, but when he watches me through his lens, it gives me a high I don’t want to come down from…
My journal is the one place I can be myself—as long as I can tie it up and put it away when I’m finished. But when Finn undoes the bow, he pulls strings that could unravel each of us.
Yours to Bare can be enjoyed as a standalone, or as book 2 in the Slip of the Tongue duet (also available in audio).

Royal (Rixton Falls #1) by Winter Renshaw is now an audiobook!

Do you guys love audiobooks?  I do.  I also love Winter Renshaw and the first book in the romantic Rixton Falls series, Royal, is now available in audiobook!

Synopsis:

His name is Royal, but he’s no prince charming. He’s not even a prince – though you could say I loved him once upon a time.
He was my older brother’s best friend. Growing up, he sat at our dinner table every Sunday, teased me mercilessly, and pretended I annoyed him. When I was old enough, he took me on my first date.
Royal taught me how to drive. Escorted me to my junior prom. Gave me my first kiss…among other things. He was my first taste of toe-curling, all-consuming, can’t-sleep love.
We had our whole lives ahead of us. There was never anyone else for me but him. And then he disappeared. No letter. No explanation. Not even a good-bye.
I’ve spent the last seven years trying in vain to forget my first love, but just when I think I’ve finally moved on, guess who’s back in town?

I’ve never been afraid of the dark…but that doesn’t mean I wanted to live in it. And maybe everyone wants what they can’t have, but I should’ve thought it over before I accepted the key and unlocked the door to their forbidden world.
Number One is mostly silent. He watches me with them very carefully. His gaze never wanders. His interest never wanes.
Number Two is mostly gentle. But it’s the other side of him I like best. The wild side.
Number Three is mostly reserved. He refuses to cross the line. Even when I beg.
It was carnal, it was sensual, and it was erotic. That’s it. That’s all it was supposed to be. A trip into the dark. A peek into the forbidden.
I just didn’t expect to like them.

Audiobook Blog Tour: 4 Stars for Alpha Squad: Boot Camp by Lorelei Moone, narrated by Audrey Lusk

Alpha Squad: Boot Camp

Alpha Squad #1
Narrated by: Audrey Lusk
Publication Date: March 21, 2017
Genres: Adult, Audio, Paranormal, Romance, Shifters

Google Play: http://bit.ly/2oHxJTu

SYNOPSIS:

It has only been a few months since humanity has found out about the shifters that live in their midst. When the New Alliance leadership asks Eric King to join Alpha Squad, a joint taskforce supposed to promote cooperation between the shifters and human authorities, his loyalty to the cause doesn’t give him any choice but to agree. But is the squad actually supposed to be relevant, or is it just an eyewash, set up by the new Secretary for Shifter Affairs to make himself look good? And how is he going to concentrate on his training, when his inner bear is insisting that the squad leader is his true mate?

Major Janine Williams is not at all pleased when she is ordered to set up Alpha Squad. The initiative is just a gimmick, meant to pacify the shifter community, plus none of her male colleagues had wanted the job. But when she starts getting to know her team, especially tough East London bear shifter, Eric, she starts to wonder if perhaps it will be possible to make this task force a success, so long as everyone works together. And so long as she can manage to keep her relationship with Eric strictly professional.

My Review:

4 Stars!

 

A short, fun listen… the audiobook of Alpha Squad: Boot Camp is an enjoyable listen with great narration.

 

Alpha Squad: Boot Camp is a shifter romance from an author who does shifters well.  You will like the characters, especially Eric and his alpha-male tendencies.  The banter between Eric and Janine, who is his mate but isn’t quite on board with that, is fun.  When things start to heat up things ignite pretty quickly.

 

The book is narrated by Audrey Lusk, who does a good job.  The narration is clear and concise, the inflection just right.  I didn’t particularly enjoy her “male” voice, but I get it is hard to sound like a man when you aren’t one.

 

An alpha shifter and his reluctant mate are fun way to spend a few hours of listening time!

New Audiobook Release: Inarticulate by Eden Summers

 

 

Title: Inarticulate
Author: Eden Summers
Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance
Narrated By: Maxine Mitchell
Release Date: April 14, 2017

 

Blurb
He’s silent—but his touch speaks louder than words. At first sight, Savannah is drawn to the harsh appeal of a man who refuses to talk to her. Keenan’s hard stare is arrogant and unapologetic. The quirk of his sensuous lips is cocky and in control.

But there’s more. There’s something deeper he’s trying to hide behind those steely grey eyes—a slight hint of vulnerability which captures her intrigue.

She’d been warned, told that his silence hides a myriad of lies capable of affecting her career and relationships with loved ones. Only she can’t help herself. Testing Keenan’s defenses is an addiction she can’t deny. 

Falling in lust is easy. Learning his secrets comes with a price. The cost? Her broken heart.

One Night Stand

Genres: Adult, Audio, Contemporary, Erotic, Romance

BUY:

Amazon Audible: http://amzn.to/2p5WNEh
Amazon Kindle: http://amzn.to/2nPJxn0

SYNOPSIS:

From casual encounter to something more?

Lucy is used to having a handle on things herself: her business, which she’s fighting to turn around after a rough patch, and her love life, which consists of carefully conducted casual encounters during which only she calls the shots. A one night stand with George – the tall, husky biker whose rough exterior hides a gentler side – changes everything. Lucy’s usual approach doesn’t work anymore: come morning, she doesn’t want to say goodbye. Perhaps it’s time to let someone into her life for more than just one night?

Meanwhile, the crucial project she’s just landed is about to fall to pieces, threatening her reputation as well as her finances. Suddenly Lucy has to learn what it’s like to not be in control of anything at all.

 

My Review:

4 Stars!

A pretty good audiobook with a sweet, sexy story!  

A short, but engaging romance between two people from different worlds who meet in a bar, have a one night stand and find themselves wanting more.  There are miscommunications and insecurities that I found endeared the characters to me.

The narrator was really good.  She did a great job with inflection and tone and even with the male voice.

ABOUT HEDONIST SIX

Call me “H.” or Hedonist if you prefer. I’m a Romance writer based in London and I’ve always been a dreamer, though it didn’t occur to me to write down the stories I kept dreaming up until 2012. You’ll not find flowery language and poetry in my work. What you will find though is believable characters, none of whom perfect, going through life and trying to find happiness. Just like the rest of us.

I first started writing because I craved to see more of “my kind of books” on the shelves. In any scenario, you’ll find me rooting for the underdog. The (emotionally) scarred hero who hasn’t really had much (or any) luck in love. The shy office worker who wants to pursue the man of her dreams, but hasn’t quite mustered the courage yet. All my characters are beautifully flawed and messed up, in a way that makes them perfect for one another.

Halfway Witchy Series by Terry Maggert

review

The third book in the Halfway Witchy series, Halfway Hunted, has Carly and Gran back in action, this time to rescue a man trapped for a century.  Terry Maggert brings us another great adventure with his witty writing and lovable characters.

Erin Spencer does a fantastic job as narrator!  Her voice is lilting and easy to listen to.

Another great audiobook from Maggert and Spencer!  I think this is my favorite yet!
