Playing to Win (The Complete Series Box Set)
Playing to Win (The Complete Series Box ... Playing to Win (The Complete Series Box Set) - Alix Nichols The single dad. The broken soul. The man with out a past. Playing to Win deliveries meaningful tales of love, courage and maturity. Although I enjoyed Zach and Uma's whirlwind into love, it was Lucas and Isabelle and Julien and Noemi that spoke to my heart. Lucas and Noemi were given the most precious of gifts, but pride and youth nearly destroyed their happily ever after. Isabelle and Julien have a tough road ahead of them as learn how to forgive the people that hurt them. Told from the viewpoint of the characters, each story makes good on the drama. However it's the moments of vulnerability that bring hope and emotion to these stories of redemption and healing.

Gray: The Complete Series
Gray: The Complete Series - Lou Cadle,La... Gray: The Complete Series - Lou Cadle,Lauren Fortgang I've read a lot of dystopian/ post-apocalyptic books because it is one of my favorite genres but I got to to the point where I was tiring of the same old, run of the mill post-apoc books. So I admit when I came across this series I was hesitant to start it because I thought it was going to be "one of those."

I'm so glad I didn't discount it and proceeded to listen because even though it does contain the usual tropes, it was a very, very solid post-apoc series! It was extremely well written and the storyline and audio performance kept me engaged from start to finish. It really just exceeded all of my expecations!

I think what really makes this series special are the two main characters, Coral and Benjamin. I liked both of them immensely and was fully invested in their survival and outcome. I enjoyed watching Coral's character grow in strength and maturity and I liked seeing the dynamics between her and Benjamin's relationship evolve.

Another thing I really liked about this series was the ending. I was glad it didn't follow the norm like so many others I've read, and Coral and Benjamin decided to branch out on their own, just the two of them, instead of returning to the community to rebuild.

If you are also a fan of post-apoc stories and/or you're a woman in a relationship, friendly or romantic, with an older man, then you should give this series a try. I think you'll really enjoy it!

Action and romance
Mountain Wolf Protectors Complete Series: Books 1 - 4 - Emilia Hartley

The Mountain Wolf Protectors is a continuing story, divided between four books. Each book does resolve the immediate conflict, but there is a looming threat that continues through each book until the conclusion of the last book. Nova and Amara's story did hold my interest throughout the series and the story is full of action and a building tension with a rival pack. The action scenes are exciting and fast-paced with plenty of detail to draw the reader in. I did wonder why the big bad wasn't dealt with when the opportunity arose, rather than that part of this tale continuing for so long and Amara's stalker, while creepy, was pretty obvious.
Amara and Nova are completely devoted to each other and the author shows this quite well in their fierce determination to defend each other. However, the intimate scenes between them felt a bit rushed and almost gratuitous.
There are a few grammatical errors scattered throughout the books, but not so many as to be a big distraction. Overall, the story is an interesting read and kept me turning pages to see where Nova and Amara's romance would go.

This will certainly not be the last of J.D. Carabella's works I'll read!
Nocturnal Voyeur - The Complete Series: A Tale of Passion, Pulp and the Paranormal - JD Carabella

I am not sure why this would ever be broken into five shorter stories and sold seperately. This works so well as one larger work, I really can't imagine only being drip fed the story. If nothing else, it would have stopped the nice flow the story has, and made it more difficult for the reader to rejoin the characters on their journey.

Speaking of the characters, they were quite enjoyable, even though Mack does fall into a few of the trope pitfalls. I really enjoyed Fiona's character with all her stubborness and foibles. I would have liked a little more development for Fiona, and Mack needed more room to grow as well (no pun intended). Fiona really makes the story, but she's given so little time to develop in between all the action (both in the bedroom and out of it) that it did feel like we were racing after her in the story so didn't have time to learn what we needed about her.

The mix of Native American Indian mythology, magic and the paranormal regulars (were-animals/shifters), provided a delightful paranormal flavour to this romp through the 1930's timeline and gave the story a uniqueness that has been missing from some of the paranormal romance/erotica stories I've been reading. I'd have loved some more time to explore the history, mythology and explanations of the magic system, but we're only really given but a tiny glimpse of it.

The story left me with some unanswered questions; ones I hope can be answered with another story following Fiona and Mack. Or, perhaps some of the answers are explored in J.D's other series in the same world - Arrested by Passion. I'll have to check them out to see :)

While the writing wasn't perfect, the overall feel of this piece was quite polished and the story provided a quick, entertaining read for those who like a bit of bite with their erotic reading. Unfortunately, the insta-love aspect niggled a bit. It wasn't a total mess, but it wasn't flawless either. I think a little more character building and development would help with the feeling of it all being a bit rushed and make the insta-love seem less clunky and more 'destined lovers'.

The sexy scenes were provided in large quantities and quite varied in sexual preference, tastes and kinks. This was nicely done, though at times I did wonder if they were all really needed, or if it was a particular penchant of J.D. to enjoy writing smut, so she came up with a plot that allowed for a lot of the short snippets to be present and still fit nicely in with the story. That's not a complaint, merely an observation. 

In terms of hotness, not all of them floated my boat, but given the quantity and varied content, I'm sure almost all erotic readers will find a scene or fantasy to please their tastes within the covers of this book. 

One word of warning: this book does contain what some would call dub-con or non-con elements, along with some pretty brutal tentacle rape scenes, is littered with foul language and some intriguing, yet extremely depraved scenes. 

This will certainly not be the last of J.D. Carabella's works I'll read! 

A few things I noticed:

7% - a few erotica faux pas (everyone being sex Gods and Goddesses and rolling continuous orgasms) - admitedly pretty common in paranormal romance/erotic stories, but weirdly I still expected more from J.D.
9% - ...I know Theo was fond of you, (delete space)"
10% - ...and lie(lay/laid) awake for a few hours...
12% - Mack still stood still (awkward wording consider revising) 
32% - ...shortness of her shirt(skirt), which ended above the knees...
49% - they had been Cheekbones and Silence previously, not Smiler 
94% - Mack was large in ever(y) sense of the...

**Note: I was provided an electronic copy of this book in return for an honest review**
