Evan Collins is the man with the Midas touch. Having left his hard childhood behind him, the financial genius vowed to one day have everything. But when he discovers that his marriage is built on lies, the only people he can trust now are the Mavericks—and the woman who has always been there for him: Paige, the sister of his soon-to-be ex-wife.

Paige Ryan has always loved Evan Collins, a secret she’s hugged close to her heart for nine long years. But when her sister’s devastating betrayal is revealed, Paige can’t keep her feelings hidden any longer.

Paige is a beacon of light for Evan. Despite believing he needs to keep the walls around his heart stronger than ever, he’s irresistibly drawn to her sweet, pure heart—and the undeniable sparks flaring between them. She’s the only one he trusts to help him face the darkness of his past head-on before it destroys him. But will their forbidden romance end up destroying them both?

I’m a big-time fan of Bella Andre’s and her audiobooks, so when Irresistible in Love finally came out in audio, I couldn’t wait to listen to it! Especially since it seemed a little more angsty than her other books – the hero gets a divorce and falls in love with his soon-to-be ex-sister-in-law. A total mess, right? I was excited to see how Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully would manage to play this out. And while it wasn’t quite what I expected, it was still a worthwhile listen. Fans of the previous Maverick Billionaires audiobooks will definitely want to give Irresistible in Love a listen!

Paige Ryan has loved Evan Collins since she met him almost ten years ago. But Evan loved her sister back then, so she sat on the sidelines and watched them get married and have the life she wished she could have had. But when Evan’s marriage comes crumbling down, Paige puts aside her feelings for Evan and is there for him as one of his closest friends.

When the truth about what his wife did comes to light, Evan has no clue how he could’ve been blindsided by Whitney’s lies over the years. He realizes he made a mistake in trusting Whitney… and marrying the wrong sister. Because all he can think about now is Paige and how she has always been there for him when he needed her most. Can Evan prove to Paige that she’s the woman who was always meant for him?

I had a great time listening to Irresistible in Love – I always do with an audiobook narrated by Eva Kaminsky! Paige and Evan’s story was a little frustrating, a touch sweet, and very heartwarming. It wasn’t hard for me to believe in Evan’s love for Paige, but I didn’t like that he never saw her that way in the nine years they’ve known each other. Paige seemed too picture perfect in my eyes – she really had no flaws except for loving a man who was married to her sister. But aside from all the dramatics, this was still an enjoyable listen. Not too angsty, not too dramatic, but just a sweet romance that you can expect from Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully.

Audiobook Review: Since I Fell for You by Bella Andre

Since I Fell for You by Bella Andre
Series: New York Sullivans #2; The Sullivans #16 (full reading order below)
Audiobook Publication Date: January 10th 2017
Length: 8 hours and 48 minutes
Narrated by: Eva Kaminsky
Links: Audible • EbookPaperback • Goodreads
Source: I received an audiobook in exchange for an honest review

Suzanne Sullivan doesn’t need a bodyguard. After all, she’s one of the most successful digital security specialists in the world―so she can most certainly take care of herself despite the problems she’s been running into lately. Unfortunately, her three brothers don’t agree. So when Mr. Way-Too-Handsome shows up bound and determined to protect her, whether she wants him there or not, sparks definitely start to fly. Because she has absolutely no intention of falling for the bodyguard she never wanted in the first place…

Roman Huson has vowed to do whatever it takes to protect Suzanne Sullivan from harm. And her brothers would kill him for so much as looking at her the wrong way. The only problem is that he’s never been hired to work for anyone so beautiful, or brilliant, before. Between trying to keep up with her―and working like hell to keep from kissing her breathless―he’s up against the most difficult challenge of his life. Especially when it turns out that the passion, and connection, between them is hotter than anything he’s ever known…

I seriously adore Bella Andre’s audiobooks!! Especially The Sullivans series, since they’re narrated by Eva Kaminsky. She’s honestly such an amazing narrator – I could listen to her for days, really. And add in the sweet, wonderful love stories from Bella Andre and you pretty much have the perfect romance audiobooks. If you’re ever in the mood for well-narrated, feel-good romances, you definitely have to check out Bella Andre!

Since I Fell for You is the second book in the New York Sullivans series, starring the sole female in this group of siblings, Suzanne Sullivan. Suzanne is a tech whiz and pretty much a geek of girl doing what she loves and making bank out of it. But being so successful leads to having a high profile, and recent incidents have lead her brothers to believe that she needs a bodyguard. But Suzanne wants nothing to do with having a man on her 24/7, no matter how good-looking he is and how strong the chemistry between them is…

Roman Huson never expected how difficult it would be to be Suzanne Sullivan’s bodyguard, but then again, he never expected to feel such intense attraction to someone he was hired to protect. He can’t let his feelings get in the way of his job, because that would put Suzanne’s life at risk, and he’ll do anything to prevent that. But the heart wants what the heart wants, and how can he resist the one woman who gets under his skin when she turns on the charm and makes him ache for more of her in his life?

If you’ve never experienced one of Bella Andre’s Sullivans books, the New York Sullivans is the perfect place to start, especially if you’re a little daunted by the number of books there currently are. Since I Fell for You can be read perfectly as a standalone, though I would recommend the previous book, Now That I’ve Found You, just because it was a pleasure to listen to. Suzanne and Roman were sweet and romantic, with the perfect hint of sexy to make this a well-rounded romance. If you love bodyguard romances, you should definitely check this one out!

Audiobook Review: Fearless in Love by Bella Andre & Jennifer Skully

Fearless in Love by Bella Andre & Jennifer Skully
Series: The Maverick Billionaires #3 (full reading order below)
Audiobook Publication Date: September 10th 2016
Length: 9 hours and 15 minutes
Narrated by: Eva Kaminsky
Links: Audible • EbookPaperback • Goodreads
Source: I received an audiobook in exchange for an honest review

Meet the Maverick Billionaires―sexy, self-made men from the wrong side of town who survived hell together and now have everything they ever wanted. But when each Maverick falls head-over-heels for an incredible woman he never saw coming, he will soon find that true love is the only thing he ever really needed…

After growing up dirt poor in a seedy Chicago neighborhood, Matt Tremont seemingly has it all now–brains, brawn, and billions. And most importantly, Noah, his five-year-old son, the one good outcome of a disastrous relationship that destroyed his last ounce of trust. The only thing he’s lacking is the perfect nanny for his son. And Ariana Jones is absolute perfection. Utterly enchanting. Completely fascinating. And totally off limits.

Like a match made in heaven, this is Ari’s dream job. Swallowed up in the foster care system after losing her brother and mother, Ari has always dreamed of family. She showers five-year-old Noah with all the love she’s kept bottled up inside. Love she could also offer to her gorgeous billionaire boss–if only he weren’t the very last man she could ever hope to have.

But when sizzling sparks of attraction turn into a forbidden, sinfully hot night of pleasure, will Ari’s love be enough to make Matt forget the past and love fearlessly?

I absolutely adore listening to the Maverick Billionaires series! Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully make up a fantastic writing duo, and add in Eva Kaminsky’s narration, I’m pretty much a happy camper. Fearless in Love is book three in the series, though it can be read/listened as a standalone. Here we have a sexy, billionaire, single father who falls for his nanny – if you love sweet, sexy romances that will tug at your heart, this one is a must listen!

Matt Tremont came from a broken family, but after meeting the Mavericks and turning his life into something better, he’s grown into the incredible self-made man he is today, with a few walls guarding his heart. He’s a single father and his son, Noah, is the most important thing in his life and is his top priority. Which means finding the perfect nanny – which is where Ariana Jones comes in. Ari is sweet, kind, and has a heart of gold – there is no one better to care for Noah. She is beautiful inside and out, and it’s not long before Matt starts falling for her. Can Matt let down the walls around his heart in order to let Ari in? Or will he only keep her out and push away one of the best things to ever happen to him?

As usual, Fearless in Love is another syrupy sweet romance from Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully – but it’s not TOO sweet that it’s hard to digest. I don’t know how they do it, but they write books that are just the right amount of swooniness. I really enjoyed Ari and Matt’s slow, heartwarming romance. The journey to their HEA isn’t quite smooth (there’s actually quite a bit of back-and-forth thanks to Matt’s feelings and hesitations) but overall it was a worthwhile listen, made all the better thanks to Eva Kaminsky’s narration (I seriously love her!). If you’ve never experienced one of Bella Andre’s audiobooks/Eva Kaminsky’s narration, I highly recommend doing so. The Maverick Billionaires series is the perfect place to start, though I do recommend the Sullivans series as well!

Top Ten Tuesday {22}: Top Ten Audiobooks

top ten tuesday banner

It’s Top Ten Tuesday, hosted by The Broke and the Bookish! This week’s theme is…

Top Ten (well, 8) Audiobooks:

Dirty Rowdy Thing by Christina Lauren
Book Review • Audible • Ebook • Paperback • Goodreads

  1. Dirty Rowdy Thing (Wild Seasons #2) by Christina Lauren ~ The audiobook that started it all! This was the very first audiobook I ever listened to, and let me tell you, it was the best decision I ever made. You haven’t lived if you’ve never listened to Sebastian York’s narration (who is my favorite male narrator).

Control Burn Resist by C.D. Reiss
AudibleEbookPaperback • Goodreads

  1. Control Burn Resist (Songs of Submission #4-6) by C.D. Reiss ~ Jo Raylan, one of my FAVORITE female narrators, voices Monica in the Songs of Submission series and her voice is divine! I especially love the way her voice changes for male dialogue. This is one of the few audiobooks I’ve actually re-listened multiple times. I highly recommend this series for those who love erotica.

 
#1 ~ My Review • Audible • EbookPaperback • Goodreads
#2 ~ My Review • Audible • EbookPaperback • Goodreads

  1. Wildest Dreams & The Golden Dynasty (Fantasyland #1-2) by Kristen Ashley ~ If you’re a KA fan or a fantasy lover, you HAVE to check out these audiobooks!! Tillie Hooper does such a stunning job at narrating these stories. And there are pretty epic romances in them too! I’m eagerly waiting for the rest of the series to come out in audio.

 
#1 ~ My Review • Audible • Ebook • Paperback • Goodreads
#2 ~ My Review • Audible • Ebook • Paperback • Goodreads

  1. Until the Sun Falls from the Sky & With Everything I Am (The Three #1-2) by Kristen Ashley ~ More KA (of course)! PNR fans definitely need to listen to at least the first two books in The Three series. A fascinating paranormal world and sexy alpha heroes make this series so great to listen to.

Kulti by Mariana Zapata The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata
#1 ~ Book Review • Audible • Ebook • Paperback • Goodreads
#2 ~ Book Review • Audible • Ebook • Paperback • Goodreads

  1. Kulti & The Wall of Winnipeg and Me by Mariana Zapata ~ If you know me then you know MZ is my top favorite author ever (because Kulti is my favorite book of all time). I loved reading these two books, but re-experiencing them as audiobooks made them even better. Plus the narrator does a fantastic job, too!

Addicted to You by Krista & Becca Ritchie
Book Review • Audible • Ebook • Paperback • Goodreads

  1. Addicted series by Krista & Becca Ritchie ~ This is the only series where I have read all the books AND listened to all the audiobooks – it’s THAT amazing. The story is incredible and the narrators are perfect for the characters – if you love NA, you have to give the series a try! And if you’ve already read the series, trust me, you’ll love listening to it too.

All I Ever Need is You by Bella Andre
My Review • Audible • Ebook • Paperback • Goodreads

  1. All I Ever Need is You (The Sullivans #14) by Bella Andre ~ Eva Kaminsky was the very first female narrator I fell in love with, and since she narrates all of Bella Andre’s books, I promised myself I would listen to all of Bella Andre’s newest releases, and so far I’ve been able to keep my promise and haven’t been disappointed yet. All of her stories are super sweet contemporary romances that are amazing to listen to.

Sebring by Kristen Ashley
My Review • Audible • Ebook • Paperback • Goodreads

  1. Sebring (Unfinished Heroes #5) Kristen Ashley ~ More… KA? Yeah, I’m a little obsessed with her audiobooks, because they always have the best stories with the perfect narrator. Stella Bloom is incredible with her narration here, and Sebring is perfect for those who only stick to the contemporary genre.

What audiobooks do you love and recommend?

Audiobook Review: Now That I’ve Found You by Bella Andre

Now That I’ve Found You by Bella Andre
Series: New York Sullivans #1; The Sullivans #15 (full reading order below)
Audiobook Publication Date: August 9th 2016
Length: 7 hours and 45 minutes
Narrated by: Eva Kaminsky

Millions of readers/listeners have fallen in love with the San Francisco and Seattle Sullivans. Now get ready to fall head over heels for the New York Sullivans!

World-renowned artist Drake Sullivan doesn’t paint women. Ever. Not when he knows all too well just how destructive painter/muse relationships can be. But on the day Rosa Bouchard walks onto the cliffs outside his Montauk cottage, Drake is so captivated that he can’t stop himself from bringing her to life on canvas.

Shocked and horrified by the nude photos of her that have just hit the Internet, reality TV star Rosa’s every instinct is to run from her Miami home and hide. After driving all night, she ends up in Montauk, New York, where she doesn’t know a soul and plans to lie low until she can figure out how to deal with the media firestorm – and her own mother, who seems all too happy to sell out Rosa’s happiness for more fame, more fans, and more money. The very last thing Rosa expects is to find, and to fall for, a sinfully sexy man like Drake Sullivan.

Drake has never felt this way about anything he’s painted…and he’s definitely never felt this way about a woman. When they kiss, everything but sweet, breathless desire melts away. But can he convince Rosa to trust – and to love – again after such a devastating betrayal?

I’m a little in love with Bella Andre’s audiobooks. Ever since I listened to one of the Sullivans audiobooks last year, she’s become an auto-buy for me, because every time I go to listen to her stories, I know I’ll get a fantastic narrator (Eva Kaminsky is one of my favorites!) and a heartwarming romance. What more can I ask for in an audiobook, right?

Now That I’ve Found You starts off with a new set of Sullivans set in New York. Drake Sullivan is a world-renowned artist who secludes himself to find his muse. What he doesn’t expect is to find his muse in a woman – reality TV star Rosa Bouchard, the only woman Drake finds himself wanting to paint. He’s stunned by her beauty, but it isn’t long before he wants her heart as well. But Rosa has been burned before, when a scandal broke out with her nudes surfacing onto the internet. Will Drake be able to win her trust in order to gain her heart?

If you’ve never experienced one of Bella Andre’s Sullivans books, the New York Sullivans is the perfect place to start, especially if you’re a little daunted by the number of books there currently are. Now That I’ve Found You was just as sweet and wonderful as I hoped it would be, and now I’m so excited for the rest of the New York Sullivans! Fans of the author won’t be disappointed with this one either – I highly recommend it!
