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: 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

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!

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

Reckless in Love by Bella Andre & Jennifer Skully
Series: The Maverick Billionaires #2 (full reading order below)
Audiobook Publication Date: January 5th 2016
Length: 10 hours and 9 minutes
Narrated by: Eva Kaminsky

Sebastian Montgomery rose from nothing to become one of the most powerful media moguls in the world. Yet beneath the seemingly perfect façade of his life, the past still haunts him. Because when he lost his parents in his teens, he also lost his faith in love. When he discovers Charlie Ballard and her incredible metal sculptures, he is awed, inspired—and he can’t help feeling things he swore never to let himself feel again. Soon, Sebastian wants not only Charlie’s art, he wants her as a woman, too. More than he’s ever wanted anything in his life. And what a Maverick wants, he always gets…

For Charlie, Sebastian offers the commission of a lifetime. Creating a magnificent sculpture for his new headquarters is a dream come true, but falling for the spellbinding billionaire isn’t part of the plan…until his luscious kisses entice her into total recklessness. He fascinates and captivates her, and as Charlie learns more about the dark depths of Sebastian’s past, all she wants is to heal him with her love. But can a man who has grown up thinking love is toxic ever believe that true love is real?

I absolutely adored listening to the first book in the Maverick Billionaires series, so this standalone sequel was an audiobook I couldn’t wait to get my hands on. Eva Kaminsky is one of my favorite narrators, and Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully have already proven that their writing meshes perfectly well together in Breathless in Love (my review here). And thankfully, I wasn’t let down – Reckless in Love is another sweet, charming love story from these two authors! If you love romance audiobooks, I highly recommend this one!

Sebastian Montgomery is a self-made billionaire, but all the money in the world can’t make up for the scars from his childhood and his need to be a perfectionist. But then he meets Charlie Ballard, a gifted and gorgeous artist who captivates him and shows him that he’s capable of love. The rich man that he is, Sebastian whisks her away on a fairy-tale ride, wanting to provide for her in all things. Charlie herself is a total sweetheart who’s full of passion and independence and spirit, but is also a little broken inside. She has a hard time accepting Sebastian’s help, since she’s been dealing with her problems on her own for so long, but it’s hard to resist the sexy, charming man.

Once again, Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully deliver a fantastic, heartfelt, light-hearted romance that Eva Kaminsky narrates perfectly. Charlie and Sebastian’s story was a delight to listen to – seriously, this book was so sweet! I loved the way the romance developed between these two characters and how they complemented each other so well. They’re both a little broken, but when they’re together, everything is perfect. They support each other just as much as they love each other. If you’re a fan of audiobooks, Reckless in Love is a must listen – I loved it!

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

Breathless in Love by Bella Andre

Breathless in Love by Bella Andre & Jennifer Skully
Series: The Maverick Billionaires #1 (full reading order below)
Audiobook Publication Date: August 25th 2015
Length: 9 hours and 48 minutes
Narrated by: Eva Kaminsky

Will Franconi has a dark past that he’s kept a closely guarded secret―very few people have ever heard his real story and he plans to keep it that way. After surviving a hellish childhood, he’s now living the dream life where everything he touches turns to gold. But something’s missing. He doesn’t quite know what until a simple letter from a teenage boy brings Harper Newman into his life. A woman who just might fill up the empty places inside him…if only he could ever be worthy of her love.

When a man has more money than he could possibly spend in five lifetimes, Harper has to ask herself what Will Franconi could possibly want from a woman like her? She’s learned the hard way that rich men always get what they want no matter the cost. If it was just herself she had to worry about, Harper would manage, but she’s guardian to her younger brother who depends on her for everything. After nearly losing his life in a car crash, she’s vowed never to let anyone hurt him ever again.

Still, sometimes Harper can’t help but long to change her story from one of an always-cautious woman to an adventurous tale of a heroine who’s wild and free…especially when Will’s kisses and caresses make her utterly breathless. And as he begins to reveal his story to her, she discovers that he’s so much more than just another wealthy, privileged man. He’s kind and giving, and he fills up all the spaces inside of her heart that have been empty for so long. Together, can they rewrite their stories into a happily-ever-after that neither of them had previously thought was possible?

After falling in love with a previous audiobook from Bella Andre, I couldn’t wait to listen to Breathless in Love! Eva Kaminsky is my favorite female narrator I’ve heard so far – her narration is fantastic to listen to, and I just love the way she voices the male dialogue. So I went into Breathless in Love with high expectations, which the authors and Eva Kaminsky all met. This was a sweet, brilliant romance between a strong heroine and a sweetheart billionaire hero that I highly recommend!

Will Franconi is the first of the Maverick group to get his story told, and what a story it was. Sweet, light-hearted, romantic, this audiobook had me smiling so much. I fell head-over-heels in love with Will – he may be a billionaire, but he has never once let the money get to his head. He’s also not that typical billionaire playboy, which I appreciated. When Will falls for a woman, he falls fast and hard, and won’t even look at any other. He’s charming, sincere, considerate – he’s really the perfect man. And he’s got a little obsession with cars – which is where the heroine comes in.

Harper Newman has been taking care of her teenage brother, Jeremy, ever since a car accident left him with the mental capacity of a seven year old. With both her parents gone, she’s had no one to rely on but herself. Harper loves her brother dearly, so when Jeremy wants to meet the billionaire who shares his obsession with cars, she agrees, but what she doesn’t expect is to be swept off her feet by the gorgeous, kindhearted man who wants to be a part of her and her brother’s little family – forever.

I loved Harper and Jeremy! Eva Kaminsky brought them to life with her narration. She also did a fantastic job with Jeremy’s voice, which was a bit slower and more emphasized to reflect his mental capacity. I admired Harper so much for the constant love and support she had for Jeremy – she’s a wonderful sister, a wonderful person, and it wasn’t hard to see how Will would fall for her.

Will has a dark past he’s constantly running from but can’t forget, but he learns to forgive himself because of what he’s found with Harper. I loved how Will wanted both Harper and Jeremy in his life – this man never ceases to amaze me with the lengths he’ll go to make sure they’re loved, safe, and protected. If you’re looking for a swoon-worthy hero, look no further than Will Franconi!

I absolutely can’t wait for more from the Maverick Billionaires. Bella Andre and Jennifer Skully have written a fantastic series-starter, and I have high hopes the other books in the series will be just as good. You should definitely give the audiobook of Breathless in Love a try – not only for Eva Kaminsky’s narration, but also for the gorgeous romance!
