Wild in Love (The Maverick Billionaires, #5) by Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully
Wild in Love - Jennifer Skully,Bella Andre

 

The beauty of The Maverick Billionaires series is that it not only entertains, but it inspires. The collaboration of Andre and Skully packs powerful messages of love and courage in tempting stories of alpha males and determined females. Wild in Love is Daniel's chance at a happy ending. Daniel is looking for the perfect girl. What he finds is a wounded soul that speaks to his heart, but is determined to keep her's closed off. Tasha had the perfect life, only to find it wasn't as perfect as she believed. Now a loner with a crack in her heart and the weight of the world on her shoulders, she sets about atoning for the sins of others, as she creates a new life for herself. Will the man who dreams of perfection, find his dream girl in the woman that's forgotten how to dream? In life there is no perfection. Happiness lies in being true to yourself. Powerful tale of redemption and second chances.

#Audiobook Review: The Way You Look Tonight by Bella Andre
The Way You Look Tonight - Bella Andre

Life has gotten to Rafe. He works tirelessly and is one of the best PIs in the business, but his cases, which primarily consist of cheating spouses, has hardened Rafe, leaving him worn-out and cynical. When his baby sister calls to tell him he is buying the family’s old cabin on the lake, he’s cautious, but eventually approves of the idea. He likes it even more when he arrives at the lake and finds his old neighbor, Brooke, all grown up and absolutely stunning. 

 

Brooke has finally found her happy place, living at her grandparents’ old lake home and making chocolate truffles. Although Brooke is successful and content, seeing Rafe rekindles her crush and ignites a desire to walk on the wild side. Instead of playing coy, she goes for it, telling Rafe exactly what she wants. Soon the friends embark on a summer fling that quickly evolves into something more.

 

After reading some positive reviews for Ms. Andre’s Seattle Sullivans series, I picked up the first full-length book. On paper, the book has pluses, including a somewhat second chance romance and a small town feel. At first, I liked both Rafe and Brooke, each with a bit of history and in need of saving. I appreciated Brooke’s direct approach with Rafe, rather than dropping hints and playing hard to get.

 

However, once the book got going, I started to find certain aspects annoying. First, I was irritated with Rafe’s constant stance that a little “kink” (being tied up) would “dirty” or “corrupt” Brooke. I felt his attitude was a bit outdated for the situation, and potentially harmful to Brooke’s self image. Second, I was exasperated by the constant in-the-head evaluations of their relationship by both Rafe and Brooke. Rather than talking to one another, or even another friend, their internal monologuing was non-stop. I was trapped as a third party, silently listening to both sides go on and on. And of course, Rafe makes a stupid decision that I saw coming a mile away. At least Brooke was mature enough to talk to him about it after a cooling-off period.

 

The narration was enjoyable and very familiar. So much so that I searched the internet for possible pseudonyms and discovered Ms. Kaminsky narrated another book I’ve listened to. Ms. Kaminsky is best when portraying female characters, with her male voices appropriately but not overly masculine. She adds a touch of emotion into her reading, which adds value to the overall enjoyment.

 

In the end, The Way You Look Tonight was a mixed bag for me. I liked it and was really into it at first, but then it grew repetitive and tired. I didn’t enjoy it after a while and speed it up until things started moving again.

 

My Rating: B-

Narration: B

Fall of Queen Elena...
The Gender End - Bella Forrest

The Gender End is the seventh and final book in The Gender Game series. I've been following the series since book one so I've been waiting for this finale for a while and was glad to finally get some closure.

 

Violet and Viggo along with their group of Matrus and Patrus survivors, head to Matrus to make a stand against Queen Elena to take her down once and for all. Going up against a psycho Queen though, means the fight was not without many struggles and sacrifices along the way but there were also several wedding celebrations thrown in to even things out a bit. All in all, I was pleased with the ending and how all the loose ends tied together. I was especially glad to see the cowardly, loud mouth, King of Patrus finally get what he's deserved for a while now. He's caused me much distress throughout this series so that was one of the highlights of the story for me.  :  )
