Audiobook Blitz: Starting from Scratch by Lane Hayes, narrated by Michael Pauley

Starting from Scratch (Starting From #2) by Lane Hayes narrated by Michael Pauley Date Released: November 6, 2019
About Starting from Scratch Charlie Rourke is an ultra-fabulous human whirlwind on a mission to launch the next biggest band in the world. However, he might have taken on more than he could handle when he signed on to manage Zero. Promoting a rock band and finding gigs shouldn’t be hard. They’re a talented group with a ton of star power. If Charlie can find the right record label, he’s sure he can help them get to the next level. The only problem is the skater boy slash bassist with a quirky sense of humor. He’s annoying and silly, and he’s exactly Charlie’s type. Except, he’s straight.

Ky Baldwin isn’t afraid to switch things up. He loves a challenge as much as anyone, but Charlie doesn’t make things easy. Zero’s manager is a force of nature with a razor-sharp tongue, a quick wit, and a no-nonsense attitude. Ky can’t stop thinking about him. Winning over Charlie becomes Ky’s p…

“Kiss me. It's your turn.”I opened my mouth and closed it. Twice. “What are you—are you fucking with me?”“No, I'm serious. Do it, so we can go back to normal. I hate being ignored.”“I haven't ignored you. I'm busy.”“Bullshit. You're ignoring me. At first I thought it was a good plan, but it's not working. We need reset the balance. Kiss me, so we can forget about it and move on.”
I may have a thing for Lane Hayes's audiobooks. I've listened to every single audiobook edition of her books because she always seems to have awesome narrators paired with her stories. As of late, Michael Pauley seems to be her go-to narrator, having narrated her two on-going series, Out in College, which features college athletes coming out of the proverbial closet,and Starting From, which is about an up and coming band called Zero, and it's this Hayes-Pauley combination that's become one …

Book Spotlight: The Shifter's Shotgun Mating by Ardy Kelly

The Shifter's Shotgun Mating(Lone Wolves Ranch #2) by Ardy Kelly Date Released: June 30, 2019
About The Shifter's Shotgun Mating A bad bargain. A botched bounty. A binding bite.
Adam knew bounty hunting in another pack’s territory had risks, but being at the end of a shotgun for a forced mating was not one he expected. At least it wasn’t permanent. Once he paid the promised cut of the bounty the leader of Pine Hollow would dissolve the mating. Adam just needed to keep his hands (and his teeth) away from the enticing omega.
Ricky knew nothing about the outside world, but he knew his days at Pine Hollow were numbered. The barren, widowed omega’s best chance for survival was to find a mate at Lone Wolves Ranch. Anyone would do. Anyone but the ornery wolf who bit him. Adam said he didn’t want a mate, so why was he acting like a knot-blocker?

The Shifter’s Shotgun Mating is the second book in the Lone Wolves Ranch series. It can be read as a stand-alone though secondary characters’ lives …

Review: The Shifter's Shotgun Mating by Ardy Kelly (Lone Wolves Ranch #2)

Note: A review copy was provided by the author via Other Worlds Ink.
The Shifter's Shotgun Mating is the second book in the Lone Wolves Ranch series from Ardy Kelly, and if the series starter, The Cub Club, was enticing, this new story has me thoroughly enthused. When I read Kelly's debut around the same time last year, I knew two things: I loved her writing and the story she had to tell AND I needed more from this world she created of shifters who lived on what was known as Lone Wolves Ranch. So naturally, I was a very happy puppy when I saw that there was, indeed, a second book and I've got my fingers crossed that we'll be getting even more because I may be a wee bit obsessed with these lone wolves who have you to find their destined mates. Now, book two is about an alpha named Adam, and his brother is Mack, the pack leader of the Lone Wolves Ranch whose story was told in book one, which you don't necessarily need to read, but do it anyway.

When Adam and his team …

Kings of Carrion (Juniper Unraveling #3) by Keri Lake Release Date: December 3, 2019 Cover Design: Okay Creations Photography: Andrei Vishnyakov

About Kings of Carrion Decades have passed since our world was decimated by the Dredge. Some say it was an act of God. Others believe the devil himself breached the gates of hell and turned the masses into the mindless infected with an appetite for carnage.
Those of us who’ve survived the Calico experiments know the only thing more terrifying than the monsters that seek to ravage what’s left of us, are the men who created them. Ones too capable of hiding their true form, and burying their darkest secrets.
Somewhere beneath the facility lies the answers, a cure for our suffering. To reach it, we’ll have to open the haunting tomb, where man’s deadliest mistakes, the most violent mutations, lie trapped within its tunnels, waiting to be set free. 
Our only hope in surviving them are the very Alphas who were designed to hunt us down. The titans forged b…

Disarm (The Dumonts #2) by Karina Halle Release Date: November 19, 2019 Montlake Romance
About Discretion Karina Halle, the New York Times bestselling author of Discretion, lifts the veil off a privileged family dynasty to reveal a wealth of secrets and dangerous obsessions.
