My Chat with Pépé G. Woodman!

Hello and welcome!

I am so happy on my first blog post of the new year to introduce a brand new author.

Please welcome Pépé G. Woodman!

A warrior of P.T.S.D., Pépé G. Woodman has opened up his lifetime experience in the wake of trauma. A carpenter for more than 30 years, he shares his love of nature and creativity on many levels, through crafting wood and photography.

pepe-1.jpg

Do you have a nickname?
Pepe is my nickname I’ve come up with that one many years ago during my DJing years. Also I started a band called the Tweed Twangerz and my name was Pepe.
My real name is Pierre Guignard. I came up with the G from my last name and Woodman cuz I love working with wood so altogether Pepe G Woodman was born or reborn as it were.

What is one word best describes you?
I would have to say the one word that describes me the best be “unfiltered”. 😀

What makes you laugh out loud?
A truly humorous yet clever jokes or someone’s laughter to a joke are my favourite that make me laugh out loud.

What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
My favourite smell would have to truly be fresh laundry from the line outside. It reminds me that I’m actually able to relax.

Favourite place to spend time in.
I absolutely love being in nature taking hikes discovering and taking photographs.

Is there a genre that you refuse to read?
I don’t per se refuse to read any type of genre, I enjoy reading for knowledge. If there is something I don’t know, I either ask somebody, or I do research and that consists of a lot of reading. If I have to go into various genres to find information, so be it. All writing is valuable.

Writing! What started it?
I was diagnosed with PTSD 6+ years ago. Looking at my photographs, the places that I’ve been made me reminisce about positive things I felt being in those places, so I began to start writing into the photos that I take. In doing so, I discovered I could actually write a book.

If you could choose another career what would it be?
I have never committed myself to one trade or work experience. I’m a man of many talents this I have finally accepted. I am a carpenter by trade, but if I had to choose another career, it would be a wilderness tour guide hands down.

Does your work convey a specific emotion or message?
The work that I do is carpentry or I problem solve and do home repairs and maintenance. For my clients I see satisfaction in their faces.

rings.jpg
As for other works I create wooden rings and the message in my rings are all personal to the individual that owns one.

Pepe-woodwork.jpg

Who is your intended audience and why should they read your books?
My intended audience would be people with PTSD like myself, but hearing back from readers that purchased the book, I have discovered it can be for anyone.

What is next in your writing?
I truly would like to do part two of my first book. Maybe write my life story in the hopes that it would help all types of people of all races and of all genders.

Thank you Pépé for chatting with me and I am looking forward to the next book.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope you enjoyed the chat and will join Pépé in his writing adventure.

My review: 5 stars
I read the book over a few days and it was really good, such a heartfelt and inspirational story. It can be taken in small doses because it makes you think, at the same time, giving you hope that it can get better. As one suffering from PTSD, I found it helpful, enforcing the feeling that I am not alone. The photos were amazing, showing the tranquility in nature and the power of it over our psyche. The word play, coming up with positive words for the letters PTSD was well done. I recommend the book for anybody who likes photography and want to know more on one man’s struggle and continuous search for brighter days.

My Chat with Elijah … again ;)

Hello and welcome!

I am so excited one my BBF is visiting again. Ever since I heard his book was coming out I was so excited and he didn’t disappoint.

Hello, Eniko. I’m Natasza Waters. Currently, my nose is buried in Dixie Under Siege, so I thought I’d ask Lt. Elijah Bach to visit with you and your readers. He’s a veteran Navy SEAL and the hero in my newest release called Cricket Under Fire.

Please welcome Elijah!

DAYUM Natasza! I know I meet him before but … DAYUM … DAYUM … where is my fan?

elijah-capture.png

Do you have a nickname?
For sure! All special operators have a team name. Sometimes, they’re off the wall and a result of a characteristic or skill. My instructor on BUD/s tagged me with the name Crux. If you read Cricket Under Fire, you’ll learn why.

What is one word that best describes you?
Depends who you ask. he says grininng Ask one of the team guys and he’ll probably tell you I’m a hard-liner. When we’re tasked on a mission, the squad wants it to go as planned, doesn’t always happen that way. As a lieutenant of Alpha Squad, I have expectations, but I know my men and their abilities. They set the bar pretty high.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Ran ten miles with Mace and Tinman this afternoon. Came home, took a shower, then slipped on a pair of drawstring sweatpants… and that’s about all. he winks

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
She gets Bravo Zulus from me. SEALs wear a uniform and fight for Uncle Sam, but we’ve all got a little good, bad and ugly inside us. The squad’s CPO Mason Briggs says it best. “We’re just blood and bone.” Until Rayne came to work at Base Command, I tended to keep my relationships short n sweet. Miss Levy changed all that.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Team guys are always yanking on each other’s chains. Gotta be that way to de-ice ourselves from warfare. During Mission: Tropic Tango, where Rayne and I partnered up, I made a rookie mistake. The guys ribbed me about it. he chuckles I deserved it.

What is your favourite drink?
I’ll drop by Breakers bar with the rest of Alpha Squad to throw back a couple brews.

What is your greatest fear?
Once I knew Rayne felt the same about me as I did about her, my fear of losing her skyrocketed. Falling in love with someone has an effect on a man. I’ve seen a lot of things overseas most people haven’t. Yeah, he shakes his head think a little fear keeps us centered. It’s natural, and maybe I’m a little obsessed of my forever gal, but I just want her to be safe.

What is the perfect romantic date?
Elijah chuckles Although not always the case, it’s not the place that makes a date romantic but the woman you’re with.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
That’s an easy one. The smell of home. There’s no place I’d rather be. Think any SEAL will tell ya that family comes first after Uncle Sam is finished with us.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Hmm, good question. Had a lot of years being a card-carrying bachelor. As cheesy as it sounds, when I saw a woman laugh or a gal with a beautiful smile, that always drew my attention. Reminds guys like us that not everything in this world is evil.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
It’s no secret Rayne Levy is the woman who stopped me dead in my tracks. Like most single guys, I had a tendency to keep things simple. When Rayne was hired by base command, Nina, her trainer, got in my face and told me to steer clear of Rayne. SEALs have high-octane professions. Takes a special woman to rein us in. From our first encounter, I had no doubt Miss Levy was special. Smart. Sweet. I loved the way she looked at life. I couldn’t ignore how she looked at me. And I sure as hell couldn’t get her out of my head. For three months, I kept my distance, then a mission brought us together. It didn’t take me long to realize Rayne was the woman I wanted to build a white picket fence with.

What is one word that best describes her?
Real. She’s down to earth. Smart. Caring. Sexy. Brave. Inquisitive. Guess that’s a whole lot more than one word, but she’s all of those things.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Think Natasza is working on Dixie Under Siege which will be the second book in A Warrior’s Passion series. Dix owns the new coffeehouse in Coronado called the Erotic Bean. Commander Josh Hunter assumed Ghost’s role at NAB, found out that someone is stalking her. Problem is years ago, Dix and Josh were engaged. I know Josh, he’ll catch the guy, but I also think he wants to mend some fences with his ex. But he’s gonna have firefight on his hands.

So excited to see you again, learned a few more things since last time. Thank you for the chat.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I hope you enjoyed the new chat with Elijah. If you missed the last one, you can check it out here. I rather enjoyed being Cricket for a few LOL

Look at this delicious cover, and I promise you the story is too 😉

CricketUnderFire_LRG.jpg

As he mentioned, he hails from Cricket Under Fire, book 1 in the A Warrior’s Passion Series by one of my fave authors, Natasza Waters.

Military Romance – Rayne Levy’s new career is about to take an explosive turn.

Rayne’s excited about her future. Hired by NAB Coronado as a tactical analyst at Base Command, she’s up for the challenge. On her first day, she meets Lt. Elijah Bach, a rugged Navy SEAL with a sizzling reputation. His men respect him, but Rayne’s training officer warns her that the handsome warrior and proverbial bachelor is a boatload of trouble. 

Tasked on Operation: Tropic Tango, Elijah is partnered with Rayne. Her inexperience isn’t the problem. She’s intelligent, tenacious and determined to prove herself. For six months he’s struggled to keep his distance. From the sidelines, he’s watched her confidence soar. Now, they’re thrown together on a mission. Concealing his hunger is one thing. Defying the slow-burn of desire is another, but when Rayne walks too close to the flames, his control unravels, and so does his ability to resist what he wants most.

Check out the trailer

My review: 5 stars ( I wish I could give more)

It is sooo goooood to be back in this world.
I really enjoyed reading Rayne and Elijah’s story, they fit so well. Their story is suspense, adventure mixed with hot scenes and some laughs too. It was great to see again the couples from the previous series, love their close-knit group and how their ladies match their men so well, they protect their own…. together.
I am looking forward to more… and hopefully soon.

My Chat with Drew

Hello and welcome!

One of my newest BBF agreed to chat with me and I am so excited. I met him in September and you might remember I posted about the audiobook, if you missed it, check it out here.

Please welcome Drew!

What is your full name?
Really? My full name? I don’t usually share that information with strangers, but since this is an interview, I’ll tell you. It’s Andrew Niles Whitney. I know, it’s a horrible name.

Do you have a nickname?
That’s easy, it’s Drew. I’ve had a few other nicknames, but Drew is the most public-friendly if you know what I mean.

What is one word best describes you?
My friends would say it’s reliable. But my family would probably say it’s smartass. Wait, is this blog for mature audiences only? If not, let’s just go with reliable.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
What do you want me to be wearing…? Okay, just kidding.
It’s my day off, and it’s sweltering in Sacramento today. Because of that, I’m barefoot and wearing khaki cargo shorts with a faded blue t-shirt.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
For the most part, I do. I’m not happy about that whole lying thing, but I was trying to get the girl and get our happy ending. I wouldn’t usually lie like that for any reason, but I was afraid of losing Emily. I took desperate measures, but that’s a testament to how much I love her. Sometimes you have to do what you have to do. Unfortunately, it almost lost me the girl. All in all, I’d say it was an honest portrayal of who I am. If anything, readers got to see the best and the very worst of me.

What makes you laugh out loud?
Ha! This is a great question. My kids make me laugh out loud pretty regularly. They’re complete goofballs most of the time. I try to make them laugh too, but sometimes they just don’t get my dad jokes.

What is your favourite dessert?
Pie. I love pie. Any kind too, I’m not picky. I’m also a big fan of fruit for dessert. I think I picked that up after spending so much time in Hawaii.

What is your favourite drink?
I’m a beer drinker. That is if you mean alcoholic drinks. Outside of alcoholic beverages, I love coffee, and I always have a bottle of water on me.

What is your greatest fear?
This question hurts to think about. As a widower, I’ve already lived through one of my greatest fear. But I always worry about something happening to one of my kids.

What is your favourite colour?
Let’s see… what is my favorite color? I’m not sure. It’s been a long time since someone has asked me that. I guess if I had to pick, I’d say I love greens and blues, sort of like the colors of the ocean.

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Before kids, I didn’t wear anything to bed. But with kids in the house, I can’t sleep in the nude. You never know when a little kid is going to sneak in and crawl into bed with you. Since becoming a dad, I sleep in cotton pajama pants. If it’s cold, I’ll add a t-shirt too.

What is the perfect romantic date?
If I’m being honest, my perfect romantic date includes lots of sex. Dinner is an excellent addition too that perfect date, but sex is always at the top of my ‘perfect date’ list.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
I’m not ticklish. Seriously, why would you think I’m ticklish? Just don’t touch my knees or run your fingers down my inner thigh, and we’ll get along just fine.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Oh, good question! I LOVE the smell of fresh-baked cookies. When I was a kid, my mom was always baking something, and I miss the smell of baked treats. I can’t bake. I manage to cook regular meals for the kids and me, but baking isn’t something I’ve temped yet.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
I’m a leg man. If I’m not close enough to see a woman’s eyes, it’s her legs that will usually catch my eye. But I love a pair of beautiful, soulful eyes. I can usually learn a lot from someone’s eyes.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
I do have someone in my life. Emily and I are living together and raising our daughter together. We’re engaged and planning our wedding. I’m happier than I’ve ever been, and I believe she is too.

What is one word best describes her?
I’m not sure I can describe her in one word. She’s… everything. She’s perfect. Okay, maybe not perfect, but she’s perfect for me. She’s feisty. She’s smart. She’s complicated. She’s charming, kind, and she has no idea just how special she is. She keeps me on my toes, that’s for sure. Okay, if you’re forcing me to choose one word, that word is captivating.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
My book is the second in a series. Each story is a standalone. Book one is about Emily’s brother. If you think she’s a little crazy, wait until you meet him. Book three is about Mike Murphy and Rachel Williams. Mike and Rachel were high school sweethearts who lost their way. She’s been hiding something from him for fourteen years, but now it’s time for the truth to come out.

Thank you Drew for joining me and answering my nosy questions. Hugs to Emily, lucky woman! Looking forward to listen to Mike and Rachel’s story too.

I hope you enjoyed the chat. I sure did 😉

Drew hails from Accidental LiesAn Unputdownable, Steamy, Sexy Contemporary Romance Novel – book 2 in the Accidental Love Series by Dana Mason.

AccidentalLies-audiocover.jpg

It was only meant to be a vacation fling….

Three blissful weeks on the beautiful island of Maui are exactly what I need…. Hula dancers, Mai Tais with cocktail umbrellas, and golden beaches – what more could I want?

Then I see her, and I realize she’s exactly what I want.

She was locked outside of her hotel room, all buttoned-up in a suit definitely not appropriate for a vacation, and wearing a fierce take-no-shit stance. But I couldn’t help noticing the pain behind her eyes….

Four Mai Tais later, the chemistry between us is hotter than the Hawaiian sun, and we decide to spend the rest of our vacation unwinding, undressing, and getting to know each other a little better….

We have just two rules:

1) No talking about our lives outside Maui.
2) This is just a vacation fling.

That means I can’t tell her about the heartbreak that haunts me, and the secret I have back home. It means I can’t ask her about the sorrow in her eyes, and why she has such a wall up – a wall I’m determined to bring crashing down.

When the sun sets on our trip, can I say goodbye to this gorgeous blue-eyed beauty? Or am I going to be tempted to break the rules?

And if I do decide to be a rule-breaker, will she even want me when she finds out who I really am?

This is a full-length, standalone romance with some hot-under-the-collar action, no cheating, and a guaranteed HEA. For fans of R.S Grey, Whitney G., and Vi Keeland, Accidental Lies features a hot AF alpha and a sizzling will-they-wont-they love story that will have you totally addicted!

My review: audiobook edition – 5 stars

What a great story! I fell in love with Drew from the first, no wonder Emily fell for him. Their chemistry is off the charts. The journey to HEA is not easy, with unpredictable twists, at times I wanted to jump in and shout JUST SAY IT !!! LOL
They both need healing from losing their spouse and I am glad they work it out in the end, they are perfect for each other. The ending is sweet, got me tearing up. A great second chances contemporary romance that I recommend with 5 stars.
The experience was made even better by the voice of one of my fave narrators, Ms. Navarro performs with passion. I love listening to the many characters she brings to life.

I found this series through Ms. Kelsey Navarro, who is my newest voice crushes, added to my “eargasm’ list. Thank you Kelsey ❤

I listened to book 1, Accidental Groom and gave it 4.5 stars

My review:
Accidental?
A good romance mixed with drama, smexy scenes, a few laughs, it ends in HEA but what a ride! The story evolves and as I got to know them, Mac and Kelley are more than they appear. They are great together, their chemistry is hot and they help each other on the healing path from their troubled pasts. It touches some sensitive topics and the author handled them so well. The secondary characters are really helpful and some do elicit strong emotions. – 4 stars
Ms. Navarro is a storyteller and such a pleasure to listen to how she brings the characters and their emotions to life. Love the voices she gives them. – 5 stars

Book 3, Accidental Secrets will be released on December 5 in ebook. Hope the audio will be released shortly after and Ms. Navarro is narrating it.

Audiobooks to listen to: Shopping for a CEO

Hello and welcome!

I started listening to this series a few days ago and today I finished my fave story so far. I am glad that most are available because they have to be read/listened to in order and the story continues across the series. Waiting for a next book is not my strength 😉

ShoppingCEO.jpg

I’m thrilled to be the maid of honor in my friend’s wedding, but the best man, Andrew McCormick, is a chauvinistic pig with a god complex. And I can’t stop kissing him in closets.

(Don’t ask.)

He’s the brother of the groom and the CEO of my biggest mystery shopping account, but suddenly he’s refusing to be in the wedding. He won’t talk about it. Won’t see reason.

He’s such a man. And he still won’t stop kissing me in random closets.

(Thank goodness.)

I’m a fixer. That’s what I do. I can fix anything if given the chance. But when the game is fixed, there’s only so much I can do.

The ball’s in his court now.

Game on.

My review: 5 stars

This has to be my fave book from the series so far. I loved Amanda from the beginning, she is the BFF of the main character in the previous books. So much is revealed about her life and she does find out things from her past that she blocked out. Andrew is definitely her match, their chemistry is so hawt. At times I wanted to shout, just get it together you two LOL I had so many laughs, I mean laugh out loud, snorting laughs at some of the expressions they used. I did have a few teary moments too. Finding out how that fateful day so many years before had an impact on his life and mind was heart breaking. Loved the ending and Marie gets what she deserves, geez that woman was exasperating. – 5 stars

My first listen to Amy McFadden and I think she is brilliant, how she uses her voice, her emotional delivery and just the perfect pitch, giving each character their own voice. LOVE LOVE LOVE. Going on my ‘eargasm’ list. – 5 stars

Shopping for a CEO is book 7 in the The Shopping Series by Julia Kent.

Shopping-for-a-Billionaire-series-banner.png

I am looking forward to listening to the rest of the series. I do not see book 15, Shopping for a CEO’s Honeymoon in audio yet and I hope it will be released in that format too by the time I get to it and Amy McFadden is chosen to perform it … PLEEEEZE 😀

I will do another post when I am done with the series, hopefully I can get Andrew to come for a chat, or maybe Amanda, or both…

Justice isn’t always black or white. Sometimes it’s cold and dark.

Former CIA assassin Alex Parker works for The Gateway Project, a clandestine government organization hell-bent on taking out serial killers and pedophiles before they enter the justice system. Alex doesn’t enjoy killing, but he’s damn good at it. He’s good at dodging the law, too–until a beautiful rookie agent has him wondering what it might be like to get caught.

FBI Special Agent Mallory Rooney has spent years hunting the lowlife who abducted her identical twin sister eighteen years ago. Now, during an on-going serial killer investigation, Mallory begins to suspect there’s a vigilante operating outside the law. She has no choice but to take him down, because murder isn’t justice. Is it?

When Mallory starts asking questions, The Gateway Project management starts to sweat, and orders Alex to watch her. As soon as they meet, the two begin to fall in love. But the lies and betrayals that define Alex’s life threaten to destroy them both – especially when the man who stole her sister all those years ago makes Mallory his next target, and Alex must reveal his true identity to save the woman he loves.

Vivi’s son may have witnessed critical details of the terrorists’ future plans and is targeted for death, but he’s mute, and he’s traumatized. Still someone launches a strike against the FBI’s safe house, and Jed fears the bad guys have an inside man. No longer knowing who to trust, he hides mother and son in a log cabin deep in the heart of the Wisconsin Northwoods. There Jed and Vivi try to figure out how to unlock the information inside her son’s head.

Not only does Scarlett’s scheme fail, it puts her in the sights of powerful people who reward unwanted curiosity with brutality. The FBI – and Matt – aren’t thrilled with her, either. But as agents involved in her father’s investigation start dying, and the attempts to stop Scarlett intensify, Matt and his colleagues begin to wonder. Could they have a traitor in their midst?

When Audrey is attacked by the local drug cartel, Killion steps in and hustles her out of harm’s way, determined to find out what she knows. His interrogation skills falter somewhere between saving her life and nursing her back to health as he realizes she’s innocent, and he ends up falling for her.

When an international ring of sex traffickers kidnaps an eight-year-old girl in Boston, FBI Agent Lucas Randall heads undercover. But his rescue operation goes disastrously wrong and Lucas barely escapes with his life. Now the ruthless traffickers are hunting him down, along with everyone else who threatens their operation.

Computer expert Ashley Chen joined the FBI to fight against evil in the world – evil she experienced firsthand. She has mad skills, and deadly secrets, and once she starts working with Lucas, she also has big trouble, because after years of pushing people away, she’s falling for the guy. The feeling is more than mutual, but as Ashley intensifies her online pursuit of the trafficking ring, her traumatic past collides with her present and suddenly Lucas can’t tell which side she’s on. And as the case escalates into a high-stakes game of cat and mouse, it turns out Ashley isn’t the only one with something to hide.

If neither can trust the other with their secrets, how can they trust each other with their hearts?

Book 8: Cold Malice

ASAC Steve “Mac” McKenzie is out to prove himself by leading a task force investigating a series of murders in the heart of Washington, DC. His undercover work in an anti-government compound twenty years earlier is related – as is the sweet, innocent girl he befriended back then. Now that girl is a beautiful woman, and she has something to hide.

Tess Fallon spent a lifetime trying to outrun her family’s brand of bigotry, but someone is threatening her anonymity by using the anniversary of her father’s death to carry out evil crimes, and she’s terrified her younger brother is involved. She sets out to find the truth and comes face-to-face with a man she once idolized, a man she thought long dead. As the crimes escalate, it becomes obvious the killer has an agenda, and Tess and Mac are running out of time to stop him.

Will the perpetrator use a decades-old dream of revolution to attack the federal government? And will the fact that Tess and Mac have fallen hard for each other give a cold-hearted killer the power to destroy them both?

Book 9: A Cold Dark Promise (Wedding Novella)

A Cold Dark Promise takes place during the week leading up to the wedding of former assassin Alex Parker to FBI Agent Mallory Rooney, who meet and fall in love in the novel, A Cold Dark Place. In the midst of wedding preparations, a shadowy figure from Alex Parker’s past reappears and threatens the joy he’s found with Mallory Rooney.

Four years ago, Jane Sanders’ rich and powerful ex-husband kidnapped their young daughter, and Jane hasn’t seen her since. Now, she finally has a lead on her location, and she knows just the man to help her get her daughter back. Trouble is, he’s an assassin. And he terrifies her.

Despite his upcoming nuptials, Alex agrees to help, but it doesn’t take long for the routine operation to turn complicated and deadly. Can the former CIA operative make it home in time to marry the woman he loves, or will his dark past destroy all hope for their future?

Book 10: Cold Blooded

Searching for the truth just turned deadly.

Disgraced investigative journalist Pip West is devastated when she discovers her best friend’s body facedown in a tranquil lake. When cops and federal agents determine her friend overdosed and then drowned, Pip knows they’re mistaken and intends to prove it.

Special Agent Hunt Kincaid doesn’t trust journalists and has no patience for Pip’s delusions, especially since her meddling could reveal why the FBI is interested in her friend’s last days. The dead scientist worked at the cutting edge of vaccine research and might have a connection to a new, weaponized, vaccine-resistant anthrax strain that just hit the black market.

Pip is thrown off her game by grief and her unexpected attraction to the handsome federal agent. Hunt battles the same unwelcome pull, determined to resist the heat that threatens to consume them both. But the more Pip digs, the closer she gets to both the sexy FBI agent and to a bioweapons terrorist who’s more than capable of cold-bloodedly sacrificing anyone who gets in his way.

My Review
Overall – 5 stars
Performance – 5 stars
Story – 5 stars

Cold Justice Series Box Set, Volume I: Books 1-3
AUDIOBOOK edition

Love Ms. Anderson style, her books are thrilling, big on suspense, hard to guess who did the crime and it is always a surprise. Adding the romance and a few hot scenes makes it appealing to the romantic in me. I recommend the series with 5 stars.

The voice of Mr. Dove was a great choice for this series, he makes the stories believable and enjoyable, the characters come to life. – 5 stars

Cold Justice Series Box Set: Volume 2: Books 4-6
AUDIOBOOK edition

Ms. Anderson sure knows how to keep the blood pressure high. The suspense building in her stories, mixed in with a few hot scenes, are sure to keep your heart going fast. It is almost impossible to guess who the bad guys are in her stories, and when it is revealed, you will be surprised. – 5 stars

Mr. Dove is giving the characters and stories life with masterful manipulation of his voice. Very enjoyable experience. Looking forward to more. – 5 stars

Book 7
AUDIOBOOK edition

I loved being back in Ms. Anderson’s Cold Justice world. Suspense, fast paced action, mystery and the twists makes this a story that will make it impossible to stop listening to. There are also a few heart breaking moments when finding out how the young girls were abused, it makes you think how some people are so rotten to the core. Definitely not for the faint of heart. The chemistry is off the charts between the H and h, results in a few hawt scenes. Ashley and Lucas get their HEA, so it ends well… not so much for the bad guys though, they get what is coming to them. – 5 stars

Mr. Dove is masterful with the manipulation of his voice, giving each character its own. Always a delight to listen. – 5 stars

Book 8

AUDIOBOOK edition

WOW I think this one was the most realistic and suspenseful of the series. I could not stop listening and it is well past my bedtime… what work? LOL Chilling premise, to think some people are so callous and heartless even to their own family, never mind strangers who happen to be different. Right up to the end I could not figure out who the evil mastermind was, so many twists and quite a few surprising revelations. Well done! Glad it ended well but there were quite a few close call for both the H and h. – 5 stars

Again, Mr. Dove made it an amazing experience to listen, giving each character its own life. I felt like I was there with them in the story. – 5 stars

Book 9

AUDIOBOOK edition

WOW talk about a close call. Alex sure fought to be in time for his own wedding and his love waiting for him at the altar. Love their close bond and their faith in each other and I am glad it all worked out. My heart is till pounding after listening what Alex and his team went thru to save a little girl and the world. It was also great to see the other players we met in the previous books. A great addition to the series, Ms. Anderson. – 5 stars

As usual, Mr. Dove did an excellent performance telling the story, love listening to his voice. – 5 stars

Book 10

AUDIOBOOK edition

I think this is my fave story from the series. Suspense kept my heart beating a mile a minute, the believable plot kept me listening on. Loved the relationship between Hunt and Pip. She has near misses with death so many times wonder she is still sane, but Hunt is there to save her every time. I liked her spunky attitude, that she never gave up on her friend and fought to find out what happened. Their chemistry is hot and I am glad they got their HEA, despite the many obstacles. Toni Anderson is one of my faves in the contemporary suspense romance genre. – 5 stars

Mr. Dove is one of my fave voices and can’t imagine anybody else performing the series. He is masterfully giving each character life. He is on my ‘eargasm’ list. – 5 stars

Audiobooks to listen to: Accidental Lies

Hello and welcome!

I am blaming Dana Mason and Kelsey Navarro for not getting sleep last night. I listened til the end well into the wee hours of the morning to this awesome audiobook.

Accidental Lies, book 2 in the Accidental Love series by Dana Mason, narrated by one of my eargasm voices, Kelsey Navarro.

Accidental-Lies.jpg

It was only meant to be a vacation fling….

Three blissful weeks on the beautiful island of Maui are exactly what I need…. Hula dancers, Mai Tais with cocktail umbrellas, and golden beaches – what more could I want?

Then I see her, and I realize she’s exactly what I want.

She was locked outside of her hotel room, all buttoned-up in a suit definitely not appropriate for a vacation, and wearing a fierce take-no-shit stance. But I couldn’t help noticing the pain behind her eyes….

Four Mai Tais later, the chemistry between us is hotter than the Hawaiian sun, and we decide to spend the rest of our vacation unwinding, undressing, and getting to know each other a little better….

We have just two rules:
1) No talking about our lives outside Maui.
2) This is just a vacation fling.

That means I can’t tell her about the heartbreak that haunts me, and the secret I have back home. It means I can’t ask her about the sorrow in her eyes, and why she has such a wall up – a wall I’m determined to bring crashing down.

When the sun sets on our trip, can I say goodbye to this gorgeous blue-eyed beauty? Or am I going to be tempted to break the rules?

And if I do decide to be a rule-breaker, will she even want me when she finds out who I really am?

This is a full-length, standalone romance with some hot-under-the-collar action, no cheating, and a guaranteed HEA. For fans of R.S Grey, Whitney G., and Vi Keeland, Accidental Lies features a hot AF alpha and a sizzling will-they-wont-they love story that will have you totally addicted!

Lies.jpg

My review – 5 stars

What a great story! I fell in love with Drew from the first, no wonder Emily fell for him. Their chemistry is off the charts. The journey to HEA is not easy, with unpredictable twists, at times I wanted to jump in and shout JUST SAY IT !!! LOL
They both need healing from losing their spouse and I am glad they work it out in the end, they are perfect for each other. The ending is sweet, got me tearing up. A great second chances contemporary romance that I recommend with 5 stars.

The experience was made even better by the voice of one of my fave narrators, Ms. Navarro performs with passion. I love listening to the many characters she brings to life. – 5 stars

Audiobooks to listen to: Love, Michael

Hello and welcome!

I just finished another great audiobook and let me tell you, it was an emotional wringer.

Love, Michael by Gina A. Jones is one that I could not stop listening to.

LoveMicheal.jpg

Michael,

Twenty years ago, I spent our wedding night alone and was given a letter outlining the day and time of our divorce. Now it’s our daughter’s wedding day, and your smile tells me you’re here for more than to walk her down the aisle.

When we met, it was the summer of Shania Twain, the color of mocha iced lipstick, sand and sable perfume, and the summer I became a 17-year-old mother. But time has changed me.

So tell me, why are you back?

Jill

LoveMichael-meme.png

My review: 5 stars

Jill’s story broke my heart, mended it, to break it again, what an emotional wringer. I spent most of the book being mad at Michael and I am not sure I got to like him fully even at the end. It resonates with me because of my life experiences, I cried a few times, I mean really cried, so be prepared to have tissues handy. Jill is a beautiful soul and I am glad she finally got her HEA, it took me by surprise with whom, but she paid dearly.
The parallel running of the ‘now’ and the ‘then’ was interesting, it bugged me at the beginning but as I listened it made sense to do it that way. The advices at the end hit home, I am on a path to learn forgiveness and it is hard.
Thank you Ms. Jones. Your voice is a pleasure to listen to and loved the variations for each character, especially the one you gave Michael.

This was not my first from Ms. Jones and it will not be the last, I hope there will be more.

Check out her books at the website.

Audiobooks to listen to: Instant Gratification

Hello and welcome!

Another great audio you don’t want to miss is the one I listened to a few days ago and that is Instant Gratification by Lauren Blakely.

Instant.jpg

A star-studded production of a new stand-alone romance from number one New York Times best-selling author Lauren Blakely, performed by a full cast of 15 narrators. Led by Andi Arndt and Shane East, the all-star cast also includes award winners and fan favorites: Vikas Adam, Bahni Turpin, Scott Brick, Zachary Webber, Jason Clarke, Emma Wilder, Hillary Huber, Joe Arden, Grace Grant, Marisa Calin, Lili Valente, newcomer Adam Lau, and Sebastian York in a special appearance.

I need a fake date. She needs my late-night expertise. Now, if we can just keep our hands off each other….

As the premier best-man-for hire in all of Manhattan, I promise discretion, so when I need a plus one for a couple of “I dos”, I turn to my gorgeous, clever, witty best friend’s sister. She’s my good friend, too, and I lust after her completely. I mean, I trust her completely.

After all, just look how she’s kept her lips sealed about the hot, multi-O night we spent together. Yes, just look at those sexy lips.

In any case, we only fell off the wagon once, and it was months ago. I’m sure we can make it through these weddings without banging each other in the limo.

Or can we?

This special production also includes a behind-the-scenes conversation with Andi Arndt and Shane East as well as a blooper reel!

My review:

Overall 5 out of 5 stars
Performance 5 out of 5 stars
Story 5 out of 5 stars

eargasm overload
A great romcom story that we come to expect from Ms. Blakely, friends to lovers with chemistry thru the roof, with some comic relief from friends and family, comeback lines, and very little angst and no drama, which I love. The singing, the banter between friends, the heat between the couples, the energy between partners and love of family is all felt throughout the book. Jason and Truly get their HEA and judging by the few epilogues we can expect other couples will too in future books. YAY
I had a few eargasms from the intro alone. The voices are incredible, some are my faves I listened to before and some new ones too that I will be sure to check out more of. The story is alive, it was like listening to a theatre show on the radio, they made it so easy to listen to, I could not stop. It is an experience not to be missed. I know I will be listening to this one again.

Audiobooks to listen to: Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words

Hello and welcome!

I just finished one of the best audiobook I listened to this year and I thought I should share it with you.

audible_original_template_Heidi3c-768x768.png

Heidi’s Guide to Four Letter Words” is a laugh-out-loud romcom with a few cringe-worthy (for Heidi that is) situations and some hawt scenes too. I learned a few new expressions too.

Uff da is one of them, I learned that is used to express surprise, relief, exhaustion, astonishment, and dismay. It kind of means “drats!”, “oops!”, “ouch!”, “Oh no!” or “Okay!”

uff-da-uff-da-mug_1.jpgsource

I need one of these in my life LOL

Cowritten by USA Today best-selling author Tara Sivec and award-winning narrator Andi Arndt, a hysterically funny, heartfelt romance about starting over and taking chances.

Nothing good ever comes from drinking a box of wine alone. So when I decided to entertain my drunken self by setting up some hand-me-down podcasting equipment and reading the steamy parts from romance novels, I never thought anyone would actually listen. The fact that I admitted my huge crush on my sexy next door neighbor made the whole thing even more mortifying. But sometimes life surprises you, and that’s how my podcast, Heidi’s Discount Erotica, was born.

Now I, Heidi Larsen, a sweet former kindergarten teacher in Waconia, Minnesota, lead a scandalous double life reading erotic novels to the listening world. And with each episode, I find myself embracing my new alter ego more and more. Now I’m starting to feel more comfortable in my own skin and do things I never would have dreamed of – like kissing my neighbor.

Look out, Waconia, because Heidi’s on the loose! She’s in your ears, in your hearts, and down your pants…wait, that didn’t sound as good as it did in my head. Well, you get the picture, don’tcha know!

My review:

Overall 5 out of 5 stars
Performance 5 out of 5 stars
Story 5 out of 5 stars

“sweet and hilarious”
One of the best books I listened to this year. Sweet, innocent Heidi comes out of her shell and oh boy what a ride. Hilarious at times where I burst out laughing, startled quite a few people around me, at work or in the elevator. DO NOT DRINK OR EAT while listening to this! I loved the interactions between Heidi and her quirky parents and the Aunt is my fave character. Love Brent, her hawt neighbour. They get their HEA, but there are a few twists I so didn’t expect. My first book by Ms. Sivec and I am looking forward to discovering more of her books.

Ms. Arndt is one of my fave narrators, I love listening to her voices, and with this debut novel that launches her writing career, she is even more so. I really hope there will be more because I need more stories.

My Chat with Malachi

Hello and welcome!

Oh you will like my guest today. Met him a few months ago and he is my fave from the series. Read on and find out why 😉

Welcome! Welcome!

What is your full name?
Malachi Whitetail

Do you have a nickname?
People call me Mal, and probably plenty of other things, but those are best left unmentioned.

What is one word best describes you?
Only one? My wife would probably say broody, but I think laid-back would be more appropriate.

Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Seriously? I dunno—jeans, a black tee, some boots. Same thing every day.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
hmmm Overall I guess so, although there were some scenes where she left me raw and bleeding. I don’t do emotion well and she had me inside out. That was tough, but since everything ended up the way it did, I can’t really complain. She did okay.

What makes you laugh out loud?
The shit my boy, Asher, gets into.

What is your favourite dessert?
My wife, Kim. If she’s not there, apple pie, but in a pinch I’ll take a beer.

What is your favourite drink?
Beer

What is your greatest fear?
Running out of beer

What is your favourite colour?
Black

What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Is that a trick question?
No, do you want me to guess? he smirks

What is the perfect romantic date?
A night at home with my wife, the kid and our Great Dane, Boo, stayin’ over at my brother’s.

How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
You touch me and you stand to lose a limb. That’s how ticklish.

What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Vanilla. It always reminds me of my wife. She has this shit she puts on her hair after she washes it, making it smell like fresh baked cookies.

When you look at a woman what catches your interest?
Used to be tall, thin, tits and blonde. That is until I met short, lush, tits and dark. I haven’t looked since then.

Do you have somebody in your life now?
Two somebodies actually: my wife Kimeo, and my boy Asher.

What is one word best describes her?
My wife? Impossible to describe all that she is in one word. In fact, I’m not sure there are enough words in existence to describe her. She’s my world.

Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
Yes, the Cedar Tree series. They’re basically standalone books and everyone working for GFI got their story written. I had to wait six books for my turn, but I first appeared in the third one, Against Me. That was my brother Caleb’s story, and I wasn’t in a very good place in my life back then.

After me it’s the youngest member of the team, Neil’s turn. He may be young, but after learning about the things he endured overseas, it’s obvious why he’s mature well beyond his age. Stands to reason he’d be drawn to an older woman, and Kendra is just perfect for him.

I really enjoyed getting to know you and Kimeo. Thank you Mal for chatting with me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Well, I hope you enjoyed the chat.

As Malachi mentioned, he hails from “Like Arrows”, book 6 in the Cedar Tree Series by one of my fave authors, Freya Barker.

6-la-ecover

An assignment has just turned interesting for GFI investigator Malachi Whitetail. When a shy, mousy woman walks into his local diner, it takes him a minute to recognize her as an employee of the real estate office he’s been monitoring. Not a believer in coincidence, Mal decides a closer look at the short brunette might be warranted. It will be the first, but certainly not the last time, he finds himself coming to her rescue.

Kimeo Lowe leads a pretty quiet existence, which is why, when she ends up a witness to a crime, her curiosity into her boss’s suspected shady dealings gets kicked into high gear. She may not be the most sociable of people, but she’s always been independent and industrious, so when an opportunity to dig a little deeper arises, she doesn’t think twice. It would seem that this time she’s bitten off a bit more than she can chew, and when a freakishly tall Native American Adonis intervenes not just once, she decides sleuthing may be best left to professionals. But it’s a bit too late.

Just when life has settled into a comfortable routine, Kim finds herself dealing with not just one, but two threats on her life. With every turn there are new challenges to face, and Mal is not about to let her face them alone. Not even when he turns out to be no match for her most dangerous enemy.

LikeArrows

I listened to the audiobook and what an amazing experience it was, enjoying Tanya Eby and Noel Harrison’s voices. It was a 5-star listen for me. The story is a mix of romance, suspense, mystery, a bit of drama, some hawt sexy scenes too and makes for an interesting 10 hours. I love how Ms. Barker characters are so relatable, with real issues and hangups…. yes Mal can be a jerk at times, but Kimeo puts in his place and we get to know the real him. They do get their HEA, but the road taking them there is quite trying.

Here is a audio clip for your enjoyment

You can also read an excerpt on Ms. Barker’s website.

If you have not read / listened to the series, I urge you to give them a try, you will not be disappointed.
