Audiobook Review: Out in the Offense by Lane Hayes, narrated by Michael Pauley (Out in College #3)

I've had the pleasure of listening to all of Lane Hayes's audiobooks, but there's just something special about the audio editions for her Out in College series. With Michael Pauley taking on narration duties once again, Out in the Offense isn't as good as the first two audiobooks--it's BETTER. No, wait. I take that back. It isn't better. It's the best in the lot, and that's saying something because I absolutely adored both Out in the Deep and Out in the End Zone. This series seems to get better with each new audiobook that's released, leaving me both excited and anxious for the fourth one since the bar is astronomically high, but since that book isn't even out yet, I'm going to continue to heap a whole lot of love on the most recent one to come out. And no, pun SO not intended in that last sentence!

Christian Rafferty has a lot on his plate: he's in his senior year at Chilton University, he's the star quarterback and captain of the …

Book Spotlight: Sweet Liar by Laurelin Paige

Sweet Liar (Dirty Sweet #1) by Laurelin Paige Date Released: February 26, 2019
About Sweet Liar British ad exec Dylan Locke isn’t looking for love. He isn’t looking for fate. He’s definitely not looking for Audrey Lind. She’s pretty, far too young, and overly romantic—in short, exhausting.
But when the girl, young enough to be his daughter, literally lands in his lap and asks for his expertise, he’d be lying if he said he wasn’t interested. In her body, in her innocence, in her philosophy.
In the kind of kismet that starts with kisses.
But Audrey isn’t looking for love either—she’s looking for lessons, and she's certain Dylan knows everything she needs to learn. 
If he agrees to play the teacher can he keep his heart? 
Of course he can.
Then again, he might be lying.

Review: Sweet Liar by Laurelin Paige (Dirty Sweet #1)

Note: An advanced reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Candi Kane PR.
Bestselling author Laurelin Paige takes readers back to her deliciously decadent universe of all things Dirty, with the first in her new Dirty Sweet duet. His business partners at Reach, Inc. may be foolishly falling in love with the women in their lives, but Dylan Locke has no intention of following suit. The forty-two-year-old Brit’s top priorities are his business ventures and his thirteen-year-old son, Aaron. He may have believed in love and romance once upon a time, but fairy tale endings are fiction for a reason. He’s more than happy to engage in meaningless sex with the woman of his choosing, but Audrey Lind would definitely NOT be a good choice. Not only is Audrey nearly twenty years younger than Dylan, but she also happens to be the younger sister of one of Reach, Inc.’s prized employees. But Audrey’s homed in on the older man, and she has no qualms going after what—or who—she wants. How long wi…

About Demon on the Down-Low After decades of unrequited love, this kangaroo will jump at the chance for a date. Any date.
Lovelorn kangaroo shifter Hamish Mulherne, drummer for the mega-hit rock band Hunter’s Moon, waited years for the band’s jaguar shifter bassist to notice him.

But with everyone else in the band mated and revoltingly happy, he needs somebody. Since he can’t expect true love to strike twice, he signs up with Supernatural Selection. Because what the hell. 
When Zeke Oz was placed at Supernatural Selection through the Sheol work-release program, he thought he was the luckiest demon alive. But when he seems responsible for several massive matchmaking errors, he’s put on notice: find the perfect match for Hamish, or get booted back to Sheol for good. The only c…
