New York Times bestselling author Gena Showalter is back with a sizzling Original Heartbreakers story featuring a troubled playboy and the woman he can’t resist…


Beck O'ckley is ruthless in the boardroom...and the bedroom. He's never been with the same woman twice, and vows he never will. With a past as twisted as his, meaningless sex keeps the demons at bay. His motto: One and done. No harm, no foul.


Harlow Glass is the most hated girl in town. The beautiful artist is penniless, jobless and homeless. When she sneaks into Beck's home—her ancestral estate—for food, she's shocked by his early return...and her immediate, sizzling and intense attraction to him.


For the first time in Beck's life, he can't get a woman out of his mind. All too soon, friendship blooms into obsession and he'll have to break her heart...or surrender his own




Barnes & Noble




Their is just some special about The Original Heartbreakers series. I don’t know what it is that keeps me swooning and comeing back for more. Maybe it’s the small-town feel, the people who all have their own issues, pasts, and hatreds, or maybe it’s just Ms. Showalter’s amazing storytelling skills.


I was pulled in from start to finish and I couldn’t stop listening to the audio book narrated by Savannah Richards.


We are treated to Beck who is friends with Jase and West. They all moved to Strawberry Valley to start fresh, except Beck hasn’t changed his ways. He’s a player, a ladies man, and known as, One and Done. Then we have Harlow who grew up in the home that Beck and his friends now own. She’s lost a lot. Her mother, her home, and no one will give her a job all because of how she acted as a teenager; she was the town bully. She’s different, changed, but no one will give her a chances. No one has forgotten and so they give her a hard time, every chance they get.


The chemistry between Beck and Harlow is scorching. They have sparks from the start, but Harlow knows his reputation and will not be a one night stand and so she will settle for friendship. This book was fantastic. I was laughing out loud one moment and having my heart break the next. I just love the characters, the snarky humor, and those sexy scenes made me sigh with delight. This book is full of snark, steam, and lots of heart.


Narration: Ms. Richards is a wonderful narrator. She captured me. The voices are all distinctive and come across clear, crisp, and well defined. The small-town feels like a small town with it’s own unique people making a living in and around it. Everything from the setting to the characters felt genuine and passionate. I’m loving the audio books for The Original Heartbreakers series and I plan to continue the series in this formate.

Half Moon Chambers (Audiobook) - DNF
Half Moon Chambers - Harper Fox

I should've read the blurb. And I should've followed my gut when this started with a sex scene. But it's Harper Fox, right? Nope. Unprofessional professional. Cop sleeps with a witness. DNF. :(


Narrator was okay.

Femme (Audiobook)
Femme - Marshall Thornton
Oh my GAAAAWD! This book was aDORablllleee!

What happens when a super effeminate gay waiter meets a super straight-seeming gay softball player/nurse who's still in the closet to his family? Shenanigans!

"Dog" doesn't make a lot of good decisions, and he's not a fast thinker, but he does eventually always do and say the right thing. And he's very lucky that Lionel is patient with him - sort of. Sometimes. A lot of the times. :D Lionel doesn't put up with much nonsense and is as sassy as he is flaming, so when his fab meets Dog's drab, there's a lot of clashing of the cultural expectations, lol. There's not a lot in the way of Romance (™) but it's a very sweet love story nonetheless.

This is very humorous, and Joel Leslie is the perfect narrator for this story. He really hits all the comedic moments and keeps even the tense moments from getting too tense. He brings life to all the characters and goes back and forth between the POVs smoothly.

Boy Meets Boy (Audiobook)
Boy Meets Boy - David Levithan

Why would anyone eat a lentil burger? What is wrong with you people? That is taking vegetarianism way too far!



But that disturbing moment aside, this was a fun listen. I liked the full cast production, they went into audio play territory, with sound effects, songs and all that jazz. The cast was great, though I was confused at times when Noah or Paul were talking. Not sure why they'd pick two guys who sound so much alike for those roles.


This was pretty much Teen Melodrama and Teen Angst, but peppered with enough humor to make the melodrama and angst more palatable (unlike lentils). I have a feeling that if I'd read this instead of listened to it, though, I wouldn't have liked it near as much.


It was a little too much "ultra liberal paradise" to be believable but I just started thinking of it as a fantasy/AU after awhile. (Cheerleading squad that rides choppers? Who's paying for that?) I also wanted to smack Paul on several occasions, especially when he's complaining about having no one to talk about his problems. I mean, I know he's a teen but dude, your parents??? That's kind of what they're there for.


I liked Noah and Paul and Tony and even Kevin after awhile. I wanted to like Joanie more but her character does this thing and since the story just sort of ends without resolving said things, I'm kind of left waffling on her. Infinite Darlene was a hoot, a real scene stealer.

Blinded By Our Eyes (Audiobook) - DNF @ 33%
Blinded By Our Eyes - Clare London

I always considered Sean Crisden a good narrator. He does what a good narrator should do: speaks clearly, hits the emotional notes, and allows the story to come through. He doesn't necessarily add anything to the material, not for me anyway, but he didn't detract from it either. Until now. I couldn't believe this was him. It was painful, y'all. And speeding it up didn't help. 


And the story was not what I was hoping it'd be. I really enjoyed Ms. London's contributions to the Petit Morts series and have been looking for something else by her to read. This is just a rambling mess, barely worth the mystery elements, and from reviews by others there's not much of a romance element either.
