Series: Hell’s Handlers, Book One

Length: 8 hours 24 minutes

Publisher: Lilly Atlas Books LLC

Released: Jul. 23, 2018

Genre: MC Romance


Toni’s no stranger to making mistakes. She has experienced firsthand how walking down the wrong path can send life spiraling out of control. Fortunately, she had someone to drag her from the gutter and help set her on the right track. As penance for the poor choices of her past, she pledges to suppress her baser desires and focus on finding a steady, dependable man, even if that means embracing a boring lifestyle.
The last thing anyone would call Zach is dull. As Enforcer for the Hell’s Handlers MC, he embodies the outlaw lifestyle. When Toni moves in next door, Zach can’t resist the possibility of a quick, hot fling. But he soon discovers she’s not the easy conquest he’s used to.
While Zach works to convince Toni she belongs in his bed, a tenuous relationship with a local gang disintegrates and threatens his MC family. Zach’s world is turned upside down when he’s unable to keep the danger from touching his club.
As Toni fights to resist Zach’s pull, her own peace is shattered by demons from her past. With enemies both old and new barreling down, she throws out her rules and turns to Zach for aid. Soon, she finds herself firmly entrenched in Zach’s dangerous world.
Is it possible for her to curb her desires, or is she doomed to repeat the mistakes of her past?
None of it will matter if Zach can’t keep their enemies at bay.





Lilly Atlas is the contemporary romance author of the award-nominated No Prisoners MC series. She’s a proud Navy wife, mother of two spunky girls, and one crazy pug. Every time Lilly downloads a new EBook, she expects her Kindle to tell her it’s exhausted and beg for some rest. Thankfully that hasn’t happened yet, so she can often be found absorbed in a good book.

This was a one hell of a surprise for an audiobook. This book is a duet narration. I have read a lot of duet narrations before. Typically at either the woman or the man narrating the chapter that is for the main character they are assigned to. So for example in Maybe someday by Colleen Hoover there is a duet narration and. Each chapter is assigned to either the main character Sydney or Ridge. Both voice actors would read the chapter assigned to the main character that they were supposed to be reading for. What caught me by surprise with this duet narration is the fact they had both Erin and Noah were narrating in each other’s chapters. So when the chapter was suppose to be Toni’s perspective Noah would jump in and voice the Male characters. So it creates an interesting narrative throughout the whole listening experience. I can tell that a lot of time effort went into putting this whole audio book together. For me this really enhances my experience as a reader. I know that the sound technician to put all of the audio together put a lot of time and effort into it.

Lilly Atlas can tell one compelling story. She really gets in there and messes with your emotions. Just after finishing this book when I should have been sleeping, I went to Audible and downloaded her No Prisoner MC series. Lilly really makes a name for herself in the genre. If you have been a reader of this book over nine or ten months you know I love my MC books.

Erin DeWard did such an amazing job. This is the first book I have heard her voice before. Her tone was always even and her performance of Toni and every female she.voice was fantastic. She has been added to my auto-buy list. Her voice really did compliant Noah’s voice really well.

Noah Michael Lavine is a wizard and a master of the Irish accent. There is a character copper who is from Ireland and the accent is hard to replicate. Noah does a phenomenal job. I’m really picky when it comes to Male voice actors but he had my heart pound. Love his deep voice.

Together these two are just magic. This audiobook gave me a very interesting listening experience and just left me wanting more. I really thing more audiobooks should do more of this duet style narration where no matter who’s POV it is they let the man narrate for Male characters and the female narrate for for the female characters. Totally 5 out 5 from and would recommend this audiobook who loves MC books

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Lilly Atlas. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Narrator Bio

Lacy lives the life of a full time wife, mother and household manager. Needing a temporary escape from time to time Lacy returned back to her first love – reading! After devouring everything she could get her hands on she thought, -what if she could mix her love of performance and literature in a professional capacity? Once getting involved in the world of book narration she quickly became hooked and when not with her family you can find her in her studio working hard to grow in her own storytelling abilities.

This is the second reverse harem novel I have ever read and the best part of it is that it was four books as a set. Now, if you go to Audible and you look at how much time it is for each book then it is a little more that two hours long. These are some short books. So if you have an afternoon free I would totally get these books. One thing to mention is that if you have the Audible Romance Package then you can get books 1,2,4 are in that package.

I won’t go to much into the story and if you read the synopsis above you will get an idea of what the story is about. Harlow Thomas has an amazing talent for writing short stories but packing a real punch in just over two hours. As the Mistress of the Underworld and just and all around vampire fan I loved these books. It brought a new spin to a classic vampire story that I have not seen before. Through out the books you will notice that there are different points of view and the are all voice by the talented Lacy Laurel. 

Lacy Laurel is an incredible voice actress. The tone of her voice is so calming and smooth. It kind of remind me of milk chocolate. Weird description I know but like milk chocolate to me is comforting and that is what her voice does. When she is voicing the different characters there is a slight difference to her voice so sometimes it’s hard to tell who she is voicing for. In my last audio book review I mentioned that I listen to the books on a higher speed because I think audio books can be a little slow. Thankfully when I speed up the audio it did not distort her voice at all. 

This is the first time I am listening to anything from Lacy Laurel I would love to hear more books that she has lent her voice for. The sound quality  of the whole production was very professional the sound was consistent throughout my whole listening experience. There  was no audio dubbing, no awkward silences between the chapter everything flowed. The one thing that I really liked is that there was not music in the beginning of the book. I always find that it is to loud and I can’t hear the opening of the book. I would totally recommend the audio book instead of the physical copy. Always.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Lacy Laurel. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Cover Revel – When Forever Changes

When Forever Changes, an all-new emotional, angsty, new adult romance from USA Today bestselling author Siobhan Davis is coming September 30th!

WhenForeverChanges_ecover.jpg

When Forever Changes by Siobhan Davis

Genre: New Adult Romance

Publishing Date: September 30th, 2018

Cover Designer: Robin Harper, Wicked by Design

Gabby



Looking back, I should have seen the signs. Perhaps I did, but I subconsciously chose to ignore them.

From the time I was ten, when I first met Dylan, I knew he was my forever guy. Back then, I couldn’t put words to what I was feeling, but, as the years progressed, I came to recognize it for what it was—soul-deep love. The kind only very few people ever get to experience. Dylan was more than just my best friend, my childhood sweetheart, my lover.

He was my soulmate.

We were carved from the same whole—destined to be together forever.

Until he changed.

And I believed I was no longer good enough.

Until he shattered me so completely, it felt like I ceased to exist.

And I’d never experienced such heart-crushing pain.

Until he leveled me a second time, and I truly wanted to die.

But I had to stay strong because I wasn’t alone in this cruel twist of fate.

I look to the sky, pleading with the stars, begging someone to tell me what I should do because I don’t know how to deal with this. I don’t know how to cope when my forever has changed, and I can’t help wondering if I had seen the signs earlier, if I’d pushed him, would it have been enough to save us?


Or had fate already decided to alter our forever?

About Sunniva Dee

So you know I’m a writer. I write literary romances that are full of substance and romance. I tend to write in my head all the time, like when I sleep, breath, pet cats, am forced to make dinner, and even while doing my job as an adviser for students at an art college in the South—

I mean…I—I—I write at other times too.

I love international flights when they’re delayed and my Mac and I can dive into a bar. There’s nothing better than an hour or two lost (too quickly) in pages I didn’t know were waiting for me.

I hate schedules, real life, cross-country skiing, and moodiness not inside of me. Not that I enjoy it in me. I’m just used to it, and it feeds scenes in my books, see?

I giggle at everything. I don’t judge easily. People say I’m kind/genuine/shy/stubborn/annoying/aloof/boring, but above it all, I am passionate. A Dragon of the Chinese zodiac and an Aquarius with all-the-air and the brightest color palette. Incidentally, that last fact could be why no one wants to buy the house I’ve got for sale.

But mostly, I love to write.

TBRs And Why I Suck At Them

Hello, wonderlandians. Happy Monday and my first official day of posting on a regular schedule again. I have taken about a two week break from posting on this blog. I became so overwhelmed with everything going on personally. Also, I need to take a break to finalize everything for when I go back to school. So for my post back I thought it would be a good idea to write about my TBR problems. As fellow readers I am sure you have similar problems with them.

TBRs and why I SUCK at them

This has been a question that has plagued my mind for many years now.

1 –  I can’t stick to it.

Every time. I sweat it’t like I am allergic to my TBR. See I am mood reader so I my list usually consists of books that I could be in the mood for just based on books i have been reading at that time. When it comes time to actually read those books I have moved on to something new and the cycle starts all over again.

2 – Shiny New Book Syndrome

We all get new books. There are new releases everyday. I am one who loves e-books so there are releases everyday. This makes it really hard to stick to the TBR list I have made for that month. I want to read the new one that I have just bought. I have a theory that my unicorn children are putting magic on all of the new books that is where this syndrome comes from. This is still unproven. It’s a work in progress.

3 – Read-a-thons

There are so many that happen for the year. Most of them have a theme to them. Usually, I am really good at least sticking to the theme. However, when I make that TBR I am just never feeling the books that I have picked out. So I am never actually thinning out my TBR list.

4 – I just don’t like them

It’s true. I just don’t like them. I feel like I being restricted when I try to stick them. Now does this stop me from making them? No.

In fact I make them in hopes that one day I will actually stick to it.

So in conclusion my TBR is telling me…

Image result for you suck gif

It would be right. I’m sorry TBR list. I really am. I will help cut you down one day.

How are you with TBRs lists?
