New Release Audiobook Review: The Accidental Dating Experiment by Lauren Blakely


The Accidental Dating ExperimentThe Accidental Dating Experiment by Lauren Blakely
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was so excited when I saw that Lauren Blakely's latest romantic comedy was included with my Audible membership so I rushed to download it, especially since the narrators were two of my favorites- Andi Arndt and Jacob Morgan. As with all Blakely books, the banter and spice was on point. Juliet and Monroe's chemistry was so great and I loved the setup with the romance podcast cohosts working together on a renovation of a cottage in a darling small town. Narrators Arndt and Morgan were fantastic and added so much to the story for me.

New Audiobook Release: Pulse by Adriana Locke


Pulse by Adriana Locke is now live in audio! 

USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke delivers a spicy, age gap, grumpy sunshine, workplace romance in the first book in the brand new Landry Security series. 

Troy Castelli acts like it’s my fault that we’re cooped up together in a room with one bed overlooking the ocean. I didn’t ask for a stalker to break into my house and then send me a threatening email detailing my demise. And I sure as heck didn’t request that my boss send Troy and his uber elite bodyguard skills to accompany me out of town—although I’m not mad about it. 

A paid tropical vacation with a grumpy, gray-eyed bad boy in a suit isn’t exactly a burden. 

But it is a giant test of my willpower. 

Troy’s alpha protector tendencies drive me wild. His arrogant smirk gets under my skin. But it’s his not-so-innocent touches, heated looks and touch-her-and-die vibes that are the final strike that ignite our explosive chemistry.  

The longer we’re together, the more his broody exterior slips, and I get a glimpse of the real man beneath the sculpted muscles. I’m determined not only to unearth his mysterious past but also to make him realize what we have is more than just a fling in paradise.

That is, unless my stalker gets me first.

My review: 4 stars

The grumpy/sunshine trope is always an immediate "Yes!" from me so I was excited to dive into this audiobook, the first in Adriana Locke's new Landry Security series. I really enjoyed the performances of CJ Bloom and Connor Brown as Dahlia and Troy. I loved that Dahlia was break down the resistance of rule following bodyguard and co-worker Troy- they were so great together and their attraction and relationship felt so real. Dahlia's "Best Neighbor" Burt was such a great side character- I really looked forward to his scenes! This was a great start to the new series and I am looking forward to more books about Landry Security.

About SO THIS IS WAR (Coming 6/25/2024):

Did I think I was going to fall for my coach's daughter?

The answer would be no. 

I'm still unclear on how I got into this predicament in the first place. A year ago, I was a man with one thought on his mind, the redhead I met at a hotel bar. Twelve months later, I found her. 

Unfortunately for me, she not only happens to be my very off-limits coach's daughter, but also . . . my new assistant and roommate. 

I don't even need an assistant, but Coach Wood doesn’t take no for an answer. Add in him writing up tasks for his daughter, Wylie, to complete for me? Well, it's his own form of sweet torture. We are talking tasks that I would never ask her to do. 

Tasks that make her despise me. 

Hate me. 

That make her utter four words that cause a shiver to crawl up my spine . . . Posey, this is war.
