Audio Review: Burn for Me by Ilona Andrews

The funny story is I checked out story from the library, but in audio form. I had a feeling I had the book, but wasn't 100% sure. I found it in my room, which is fine. I still listen to the story. I actually enjoyed listening to Burn for Me. I have to say that this is my first Ilona Andrews book, and I enjoyed the story. So much so that I have requested the next story. Which I will be listen to book two, but you need to hear my thoughts on Burn for Me. Here we go:

Burn for Me is market as a romance novel, and there are some hint of romance. Like I said a hint. The story focuses on Nevada Baylor trying to get Adam Pierce who is a pyrokinetic Prime. However, she gets tangle with Connor "Mad" Rogan. Rogan is trying to find his cousin's son. Yet, there is a lot going on in this story that you don't learn until the end. Kind jaw dropping with all that happens. Nevada and Rogan need each to stop what is going on. Yes, there is sexual tension between these, and they pretty much fight each other feelings through most of the story. They come pretty close.

Anyway, a good start to a new series. Yes, we get to see more of these two in the next book. Mainly cause they never completely get together at the end of this story, so we got to see if they will ever get together. There is a cliffhanger. If you are not a cliffhanger fan you might not want to pass on this, but if you are looking for adventure you might take a chance on Burn for Me.

Audiobook: The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang

I think I have broke my reading slump. Well, at least with listening. This past week I got a chance to listen The Kiss Quotient by Helen Hoang. Let me say that I couldn’t stop listening to that story. Even the narrator that was chosen to read the story was a perfect fit. In the story we meet Stella Lane. She has hard time dealing with people, because she has aspersers. However, numbers speak to her more than people. She feels that in order to get a man, she needs to get better with sex and relationships, and what better way than a male escort. She happens to pick Michael Phan. 

Now Michael has decided to get into the escorting business, because he needed to help his family out. He sort of feels obligated to help Stella, because he had a fear that she might end up in the wrong hands. However, they are good match for one another. 

Overall, The Kiss Quotient was a pretty good listen. I laugh, I cried, and thoroughly enjoyed the story. I love the story so much that I requested the next book from my library to listen to my drive to work. I can’t wait to start the next story. If you are looking for something different, and a character that isn’t typical, you will find yourself enjoying The Kiss Quotient.

Checked out from the Library

Bishop's Endgame by Katie Reus (Review)

I finally got around to Bishop's Endgame. I don't know why I procrastinated on this story, because it was the perfect ending to the trilogy. Throughout the trilogy we hear about Ellis, but he's not seen or heard from for since he "murdered" his best friend. Always in the background until his story. Now he's trying to prove his innocence, which is a tough feat when the cards are stack against him. He has the feeling that taking the daughter of the one who killed his friend was the way to do it. Sounds like a winning plan.

However, there are a few things that he wasn't counting on when he kidnapped Arianna: 1. She wasn't like her step-father. 2. Sweet caring person. 3. Willing to help him. There's no love lost between Arianna and her step-father. When she learns more about her step-father it's an easy choice to help Ellis.

I love Bishop's Endgame, because we bring in Evie his sister. We get to see Lizzy from Redstone books. And we also get to see another character that has popped in a few series here and there. Overall, a perfect ending to a trilogy. We have Ellis managing to redeem himself. Since he was the last Bishop to find happiness, I guess it's time to move on to a new series.
