Woman listening

We look forward to our chats about what we’re listening to each week – we squee over the good and sigh over the not-so-good, tap each other up for ideas for future listens and generally gossip about what’s making our ears happy. Here’s what we’re listening to this week.

The Deep End by Kristen Ashley

The Deep End by Kristen AshleyNarrated by Lizbeth Gwynn

Kristen Ashley is a marvel at every prior romance sub-genre she had ever attempted, so when I saw she was venturing into the world of erotica to tell the romantic tale of a dominatrix and her male submissive, I signed up to see if she could come up triumphant in this sub-genre as well. All that said, this is not a sub-genre that I had previously read or listened to – BDSM yes, but not where the dominant was the heroine and the submissive the hero. So, though I’m admittedly flying somewhat blind in this area, I think Ms. Ashley delivered a fairly decent story for her first attempt in this arena. Read the rest of this entry »

The Truth About Love and Dukes by Laura Lee Guhrke

The Truth About Love and Dukes by Laura Lee GuhrkeNarrated by Carolyn Morris

The first book in Laura Lee Guhrke’s new Dear Lady Truelove series, The Truth About Love and Dukes is an enjoyable opposites-attract story that sees a very proper and oh, so correct duke finding love with a most unlikely young woman. The “uptight lord gets the stuffing knocked out of him by unconventional young lady” is a familiar trope, but it works quite well here; the central couple has great chemistry and the author takes a good look at the difficulties inherent in having a relationship outside your class. On the downside, however, you do need to get past the rather improbable catalyst (a duchess writing a letter to a ‘lonely hearts’ column Read the rest of this entry »

You’re Not Alone by Stacy Eaton

You're Not Alone by Stacy EatonNarrated by Maria Marquis

Trigger Warning: Domestic violence

I read an article recently about a domestic violence survivor who had married one of the first responders who helped save her life after she was stabbed 32 times by an ex-boyfriend (note: there are pictures in the linked article which may be disturbing to some AudioGals readers). The article was linked in a post which suggested that it sounded like a romance novel plot. Afterward, I happened to see You’re Not Alone at Audible so I requested it for review.

Seven Minutes in Heaven by Eloisa James

Seven Minutes in Heaven by Eloisa JamesNarrated by Susan Duerden

I’m a huge fan of Eloisa James’ brand of historical romance. She always manages to infuse witty dialogue and tongue-in-cheek humor in her romances which is sure to bring a smile to my face and have me chuckling while my earbuds are tuned in. I also love the cat and mouse chase that she tends to make the hero and heroine jump through prior to achieving their HEA. Seven Minutes in Heaven is no exception. However, while I was entertained throughout the whole story, I must admit that the plot as a whole requires the listener to suspend belief a bit more than one would hope as the entire story requires one to accept one whopper of a misunderstanding.

Into the Fire by Jeaniene Frost

Into the Fire by Jeanienne FrostNarrated by Tavia Gilbert

Into the Fire is the explosive and magic-defying conclusion to the Night Prince Series (featuring Leila and Vlad) which is itself a spin-off of the Night Huntress Series (featuring Cat and Bones) both of which make up part of the Night Huntress Universe. I have a special place in my heart for the Night Huntress Series as its one of the first series I remember listening to in audio format. I credit the mesmerizing combination of Jeaniene Frost’s creative writing and Tavia Gilbert’s truly talented voice as a part of the reason that I have converted from primarily a reader to an avid audiobook listener today.
