The Alien’s Captive “This book has it all. Aliens - although I didn't like the kidnapping of women from Earth - but some aliens are 'more' than others. Anna has put up with a lot, but when her sister is missing, she has to make some hard decisions that could alter the course of her life forever. The sexual tension is enough to singe your player and it does get hot and steamy at times. I loved the fiercely independent Anna and how she will always stand up for her beliefs.”
Corralling Callie “Callie is quite a spitfire for a mail-order bride. I loved listening to her story and watching sparks fly. A fun story that will keep you wanting to hear more. Enjoyable all around.”
The Marshall’s Mission “Loved the story. There is so much turmoil because you know it will not last and it doesn't look like a happily ever after (HEA) is not guaranteed. You will love the characters and keep hoping for the HEA throughout the entire story.”
Growing Up Wilder “This story was a little hard for me to get into but I did enjoy once the story started moving. Coming of age is not always easy and when you are in the Wilder family, it's double difficult. Past and present collide to give a story you won't soon forget.”
Betrayal: A Tall Pines Mystery “Great story that grabbed me from the start and kept me listening. There were some points that had me on the edge of my seat because they were so tense and/or action packed. A great story and I'd like to read more from this author.”
Stalked “I'm not usually a MC book reader but this one caught my attention, and I enjoyed the story. Rough and tumble characters who have a soft side if you look hard enough. Exciting points in the story kept me listening.”
Enchanted Castle – Part 1 “I know it is a novella, but I wished the story was longer. It was such a good story that drew me in and I would have like to stayed in the story longer. I liked the story a lot but felt the shortened length made it feel choppy in places. Overall a terrific story that makes you want more.”
Gambled Pride “I have fallen in love with the Brides of Jubilee Springs series. Wonderful western historicals with fantastic characters and some good old fashioned cowboy action. Rachel's story was one that captivated my own heart and you will root for her the whole way through the story. Don't miss out on a wonderful western romance.”
River of Light and Shadow “You don't know what you don't know. And while this is historical fiction, we know it is based in fact. I had no clue about the Mormon Wars. It was a very good story but hard to listen to at times because of the treatment and the way the situation was handled. The characters are lifelike and will draw you into their story.”
Enchanted Heart (Twickenham Time Travel Romance Book 10) “Loved the story. A girl who normally doesn't do impulsive things goes to a ball in England and is transported through time. Will she get back to present day, and will she want to? She may want to live in the past and look for true love. Well written and I look forward to listening to more from this series.”
Raspberry Truffle Murder “I thought the mystery was well written and kept me guessing as to who did it. Since this is the first book in the series, some of the back stories and character introductions dragged a little, but the story was overall a good one and very enjoyable to listen to.”
Laura & Alan “This book was so different (in a good way) from my expectations. I expected infidelity and graphic sex scenes. I was so thrilled to find a story that is truly a story where the couple go through some self-discoveries to improve their marriage. They have to learn to lean on others and while there is some terrific sex, it is not graphic, but tastefully erotic in what it includes and doesn't include. But the sex stays within the committed marriage and is tasteful and well written. Thank you Audiobooks Unleashed for a complimentary copy to listen to.”
The Brain Gang “This story was a fun short story. It is a little bit sci-fi, a little bit family drama, and a whole lot of dysfunctional characters all rolled into one story. I laughed and giggled a lot. It's a bit trite at times, but a fun listen. It starts when 102 year old Mildred's brain is preserved on her death and brought back to life (brain only) in a think tank. The scientists had no idea what they were getting into when they picked Mildred! Then as the brain gang grows, you'll cringe and laugh with the rest of us. Thank you to Audiobooks Unleashed for giving me a copy to listen to.”
Captured Heart “This book wowed me from opening to closing. Steve Kelly has finally decided to move on--10 years after his wife died. When he meets mail order bride Emily, he realizes it is his wife. She has no recollection of him or who she is/was. There is a lot of hurt and mistrust between them. I could not stop listening and hoping against hope that they could find and rekindle their love for each other. I am hooked by this story and can't wait to read more from this series. Thanks to Audiobooks Unleashed for giving me a copy to listen to.”
The Thin Line of Life: Volume 2 “Another terrific listen from the Lesters. This is similar to the first volume as it is short stories showing various points of view regarding the zombie apocalypse. Easy to follow along and we learn some fascinating information about where the attacks may be coming from. If you enjoy this series, don't miss this book. Thank you to Audiobooks Unleashed for providing a copy of this book to listen to.”
Three Weeks Last Spring “This story mixes a little bit of all of my favorite things. There's mystery and intrigue, some nerdy characters, a budding romance, and a couple red herrings to keep me guessing. Skye and Jeddediah both have some secrets they need to keep, but will these secrets bring them together or tear them apart? And are they as trustworthy as they seem on the surface? The intrigue kept me listening to the very last page, while cheering for a romance to work between Jeddediah and Skye.”
Reconcile “Joshua and Lily's story is a perfect addition to the series. It does stand fully alone, but for returning readers, you will not be disappointed. Your favorite characters will be seen, but Lily's past is catching up with her. Will she ever get to be free from it? I was mesmerized by the story and did not want to stop listening.”
Reliance “Rebecca and Elias' story is captivating and I couldn't wait to listen to more. Elias has despaired of finding a new wife. A widower with a young daughter, he wants a wife and mother. Rebecca is anxious to escape her past and becomes his bride. Even though love and affection bloom, with either of them ever fully trust the other? Can they learn to share their deepest fears and desires? Or will the past haunt them forever? Thank you to Audiobooks Unleashed for a free copy of this book to listen to.”
Three Gifts “A tender love story filled with the promise of God's grace in our lives. It was a beautiful short story that I couldn't stop listening to. Hoping to hear more from author Claire Sanders. Wonderful book. Thank you to Audiobook Unleashed for a free copy of this book to listen to.”
Highland Honor – Scottish Highland Romance “Conan and Una have found true love, but it seems that the universe and friends and enemies both conspire against them to keep them apart. There was a lot of suspense and subterfuge going on and it was hard to figure out who the good guys and the bad guys were. A good romance with enough mystery and suspense to keep it very interesting. Thank you to Audiobooks Unleashed for a free copy of this book to listen to.”
Christmas Hope: Contemporary Christian Romance “This story is exciting and keeps you on your toes. It is a fast listen but a great mystery and trying to figure out who is on which side. I enjoyed the listen. Thank you to Audiobooks Unleashed for a free copy of this book to listen to.”
Cast a Long Shadow “I really enjoyed this story, although there were parts that drug a little bit. It did keep me listening and cheering for Bobby to overcome his past and figure out the answers to the present problem. I don't want to give away spoilers, so I'll just stay it was an excellent read and one I would listen to again. Thank you to Audiobooks Unleashed for a free copy of the book to listen to.”
The Snowman Killer “I believe this may be part of a series, but this book stands totally alone. A captivating cozy mystery. I enjoyed the premise and loved the setting of Alaska. It was interesting listen and kept me guessing until the very end. Thank you to Audiobooks Unleashed for a free copy of this book to listen to.”
The Luck of Rainbow Gold (What’s in a Name?) “Rainy leads a charmed and lucky life...except in love. When she decides to see if she can change her luck in love, it seems to be working...until all her luck in life seems to instantly disappear. Can a girl be lucky in life AND in love? Or will she have to pick one over the other? A crazy fun read with a romance that has you cheering for Rainy to gain her luck back...and her man! Thank you to Audiobooks Unleashed for a free copy of this book to read.”
Other People’s Shit “What a hysterical and fun book. People turning into clowns, bicycle gangs, corporations taking over the world? Anything is possible. This is a lighthearted listen and just fun and funny. If you are offended by the use of the word sh** in books, skip this one, it's used a lot. The ending had me in stitches. Thank you Audiobooks Unleashed for a free copy of this book.”
We Did Everything Wrong “I did enjoy this book. It was similar to watching Folks Gone Wild - Senior Edition. The book takes more twists and turns than the tape in the cassettes Abraham used to sell. Going on a road trip is the best and worst idea of his life. There's lots of adventure, mis-adventures, and fun. While some parts were a little melancholy and drug a bit, overall it was a good listen. Thank you to Audiobooks Unleashed for a copy of this book to listen to.”
Baby Hater “For those who fin lots of language funny in a story, this would be for you. I didn't realize that the F-bomb would be used in what felt like every third sentence. I thought this would be a cute and funny read, but it did not appeal to me. I think another reader would enjoy more than me. Well read, and the premise was funny, but the excessive foul language was too off-putting to me. Thank you to Audiobooks Unleashed for the chance to listen to this book for no charge.”
Lawfully Rescued “This story was a western, mystery, and romance all rolled into one. When Logan goes after a bounty, Paulina manages to work her way into going with him. She's trying to escape her knowledge of the criminal Logan seeks. As her knowledge becomes known, both Logan and Pauline are in serious danger. Can he keep her - and himself - safe? The story kept me totally engrossed and this is one of the best Barbara Goss books I've listened to. Thank you for Audiobooks Unleashed for the opportunity to listen for free.”
Of Angels and Gods “This story captured my attention from the beginning. It does stand alone, but I wished I had listened to the other books in the series first--more for the information and more complete backstory and not because it was needed for listening comprehension. It was such a different and unique take on Archangels and had hints of Greek mythology included. The story kept me listening as it progressed. Thank you to Audiobooks Unleashed for the opportunity to listen to this story.”
The Reckless Proposal “Loved this story from start to finish. I couldn't stop listening. Ned is such a kind and caring man. His dilemma kept me listening, and his adventures across the ocean were such an interesting addition to the plot and story. I enjoyed this book which stands alone. Enjoyed and looking forward to more!”
The Guilty Proposal “This was a wonderful start to a new series. I enjoyed the story and that it was wholesome. Travis proposes to his friend Libby--mostly out of misplaced guilt, and shortly after, the love of his life walks in. How do you continue a ruse of marriage to one woman when your thoughts and heart are fully with another? He is not one to break hearts or his word so he continues with Libby. You'll have to listen to see how this story progresses and ends. Looking forward to the other books in the series.”
The Seacroft “This book stands alone from book one, but I enjoyed listening since I had listened to book one previously. Vivian Wood has issues and it seems that her new job is the answer to everything. Even though her boss can be overly demanding and somewhat of a jerk, but her co-worker Cody is a kind and friendly face. As Cody and Vivian get closer, their boss tries to drive a wedge between them. And when nature makes a stand, all of them will find what they are truly made of.”
Accidentally Married to the Billionaire – Part 3 “While I alternated between cheering for Brandon and Marjorie and wanting to smack them upside the head, this was my favorite part of the story. I really wanted them to have a Happily Ever After. The "Wicked Queen" (stepmom) continues to be wicked and really was a hateful human. You won't be disappointed in this last part of the story.”
Accidentally Married to the Billionaire – Part 2 “This second installment is as good as the first. I continue to cheer for Brandon and Marjorie and hope they can get past the initial pretense and see the other for who they really are. Can't wait to listen to the final part of the story. Thank you to Audiobooks Unleashed for the opportunity to listen.”
Accidentally Married to the Billionaire – Part 1 “I enjoyed the story and enjoyed the way Brandon and Marjorie went about trying to beat the "Wicked Queen" at her own game. She's truly an awful woman and I'm rooting for Brandon and Marjorie. Looking forward to listening to the other parts of the story.”
Being Brothers “While I loved the story, I had trouble staying involved with the style. It's written as a screenplay and those are not my cup of tea. If you can ignore the screenplay directions, the story is captivating and reminds me of a simpler time in my own life.”
This Side of Forever “I enjoyed the story but some aspects seemed unrealistic. It was a fast listen and very enjoyable, but if it were real life, I don't think either of them would have lived to the end of the story. I'm glad they did in the book, though, as it was an enjoyable listen.”
His Second Chance: Cooper McBride’s Leap of Faith “Could not stop listening. First of all, love, love, love Miranda's character. She is the glue that holds this story together. I was entranced from opening pages to the end. I was kept guessing and couldn't wait to listen to hear what happened next.”
On The Edge of Tomorrow “Wonderful romance with lots of twists and turns. You will be rooting for Abagail and Hunter throughout the story.”
The Earl’s Christmas Wish “I didn’t love the narration. It seemed stilted. It’s a good story, you see where it’s going but it has a happily ever after to look forward to. The choice to have the characters always refer to each other as Lord Trenton or Lady Leah made it harder to like the characters. What father (Lord or not) never calls his daughter Leah, only Lady Leah? It added to the stilted nature of the reading. It’s an enjoyable novella that most will enjoy.”
Orb “I really enjoyed this book. Started out a little confusing, but then I was totally caught up in the story and didn't want to stop listening. Looking forward to more from David Arp.”
Nightmares “While it is a young adult book, I really did enjoy it. There was a lot of good suspense, intrigues, and I liked the characters. It was a good start to a new series and while a few places did read a little slowly, I think future books will read more quickly without the learning curve of the new series.”
Gabriel “I loved the premise of the book that shifters were among us all the time, but eventually were outed by the media. The sad part was the segregation and discrimination that happens to the shifter characters (especially in light of present civil unrest). But the story was a terrific one. I loved the storyline and how Ms Fanning helped the story flow easily from point to point. I didn't get the choppy feel that I sometimes do with shifter stories. The storyline was solid and engaging. I couldn't stop listening.”
Touch Me “Sometimes you find a book that you feel was written just for you. Touch Me was that story for me. The beginning when they first 'meet' was hysterical and that humor sprinkled throughout the story made it all the more real and personable to me. I loved the characters and how they are working to get past their pasts. I wasn't sure they would ever get together as a couple, but it made the romance more enjoyable rooting for them. Thanks to Audiobooks Unlimited for a listening copy. I enjoyed this book very much!”
Wolf Moon “I enjoyed the book, but didn't love the cliffhanger. I don't mind a cliffhanger, but I'd like to leave the story feeling like it finished before the cliffhanger. Overall, I did enjoy the story, but I think Ms. Hawke will need to continue to refine character development in future stories. Sometimes, the characters acted in ways that seemed to be a total contrast to their personality. I understand the stresses they were under, but some of their interactions were stilted and not in character. Overall an excellent start to the series and I do look forward to reading future books. I think Ms. Hawke is a talented up and coming author. Thank you to Audiobooks Unleashed for my free copy to listen to. I'm glad I took time to start this series and look forward to future books.”
The Trojan Project “This story was much more than a sci-fi thriller. It brought together a lot of elements and I was impressed at how well the story kept me on the edge of my seat. The premise was definitely set in a 'what if' situation, but in light of the pandemic, it made the storyline even more suspenseful. Terrific narration with the right inflections and speeds to really bring across the suspense and horror of what the characters were experiencing. A must-listen story. Thank you to Audiobooks Unlimited for the copy to listen to. I was hooked from start to finish.”
Forgiving Tess “I wasn't sure I would like this story, but I'm glad I took a listen. Tess is trying hard to overcome her past. She made bad choices - a lot of them - and is in the process of making amends. It seems like even her own family will not acknowledge that she has changed and she is deeply hurt by that. When she goes on a mission trip and reconnects with a young man she knew 'before', she quickly realizes she can't have a happily ever after with him. He's a youth pastor now, and she believes her past will never allow them to have a future. Will she take a risk? Or keep running from the past? An excellent story that I was glad I took time to listen to. Thank you Audiobooks Unlimited for a copy of the story to listen to. It was a story I fell in love with.”
Bombshell: An Ava Romantic Mystery “Ava is a spunky heroine. She has some ups and downs, but sees the job through to the end. I had some trouble following the storyline at first - the characters came so fast I was having trouble separating them. I think if I had read other books in the series, I would have picked up on characters faster. It does stand alone, but there was an adjustment period for me to figure it out. Ava is sassy and looking for love - possibly in the wrong places. Her sass and spunk may be her undoing. The mystery was top notch and it was just a fun and playful book. Very enjoyable. Thank you to Audiobooks Unleashed for the copy to listen to.”
Train Station Bride “In this first book of the series, we meet the Crawford’s, a very wealthy and proper family from Boston. We learn that well bred families doesn’t always mean love filled homes. When Julia decides she needs to get away from her stifling family, she corresponds with a shopkeeper in South Dakota. She agrees to become his bride. As the fates would have it, things change upon arrival. Will the changes be for the better? Time will tell.”
Contract to Wed “I loved this book first page to last. Compelling characters (although I had to grow to love a couple of them). Well written book. The only spoiler I think listeners should know is that the bedroom scenes are a little steamy. PG-13 If you have little ones listening, you may want to pause at those spots.”
Right Under Your Nose: A Christmas Story “A delightful holiday story to make you smile. I don’t want to give any spoilers but know this book has fun and whimsy and a hint of the magic and spirit of Christmas to warm your heart any time if the year. I enjoyed the whole story and it left me smiling and uplifted. Enjoy!”
Dogged by Love “Rufus (the dog) tells us all about his dad (Edward) and Edward’s escapades as he searches for love. A witty, funny, sweet romance that will have you believing in the power of love (and dogs) for a happily ever after.”
The Forever Sleep “This Sci-fi short story will really make you think. It was engaging and kept me listening to the end. Looking forward to reading more by these authors in the future.”
Emigrating with an Earl “This was an interesting story and a fast listen. While I enjoyed the story and found it to stand alone, a few places felt stilted or like we jumped scenes too soon. Overall, I did thoroughly enjoy the title and look forward to reading more in the future.”
The Generational War “I really enjoyed the book. Some of the beginning was confusing until I started to realize what was happening. There’s a lot of thought provoking ideas that come with the book. Overall an excellent story.”
Looking for Love “This was an enjoyable read. I liked the storyline a lot and found the characters to be enjoyable people I’d like to know. Some of the dialogue felt forced and didn’t always smoothly connect the scene. But otherwise, it’s a terrific book and I did enjoy it a lot.”
