Yes as the title says I am now really getting into audible books, it started simple enough with talking to people on Tumblr (yeah still hooked on that one too) and even though I have already read all the Cut & Run series books I kept hearing others comment on the audios so I decided to try them. Honestly the first two were just ok the guys voice just didn't work for me but you know me and my OCD I had to get the rest of them LOL the 3rd holy crap on a cracker....this guy I think his name is Sean Crisden....I mean when he does Zane's voice it made me shiver....btw my hubby would like to thank you Mr. Crisden....unfortunately there are only 5 of the books out on audio so I have decided to get a few more of my favorite books on audio to try so I picked up of course A Matter of Time set and a few Josh Lanyon to try too. I'm still reading also and I decided to clean out my Kindle I mean it had 2500 plus books on it I really needed to make some space which is kinda hard for a person like me with OCD we tend to not want to let things go but some of the books I bought were nice but not favorites I'm letting go I need more room for more books LOL If you've got a favorite Audio books drop me a line, Keep Reading and I talk to ya later....I gotta let you know how my crazy family dealt with our reunion it was funny as hell and on the same day my oldest turned 16 so highjinks ensued. Alright now I'm off to clean the house some before Sterek oh I mean Teen Wolf comes on tonight LOL bye bye!

Worlds Collide by R.J. Scott, Brad's Bachelor Party by River Jaymes & Love Me Back to Life by M.L. Rhodes

Worlds Collide (Sanctuary #7)
It is the day after New Years and Dale is en route back to Albany in a private jet with Emily Bullen. She is coming back home after turning states evidence on her husband Senator Thomas Bullen.

What no one factored in, not Sanctuary or the FBI, was the lengths Griffin Ryland would go to in the effort to protect himself.

Joseph finds out Dale is in trouble and it is only with the help of his team of SEALs that he can make sure Dale is safe and that Griffin Ryland can't cause any more trouble.

A snowy New Years, a deserted airport and a hostage situation with people already dead and suddenly the worlds of Sanctuary and the SEALs collide, with terrifying consequences.

Then, two weeks alone at a resort, falling deeper in love leave the two men with decisions to make and suddenly there is the chance to make forever a possibility.

                                                                        *5 STARS*

Book seven of the Sanctuary series is without a doubt my favorite so far, Joe & Dale were my favorites way back in book #2 and I admit I was not happy about the way that book ended I really wanted a HEA for these two. So imagine my surprise when we get their story continued and it was wonderful mainly because we got to spend a great deal of time on their emotions, feelings and just getting to know them and yes the sex is super HOT!! too...... I loved that I could still feel their chemistry even after 5 different couple books it was still intense and viable, we also get more info on the action storyline but it didn't takeover the story just brought us to the deep emotions that make up this couple. The each have their fears and concerns to deal with but I really enjoyed how they each work through them before they even we'll say bring it to the table with each other. That being said I thoroughly LOVED Joe & Dale's story I will be rereading this one again and again. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND.
Brad's Bachelor Party

In college, geeky med student Cole Winston fell for his best friend, Brad Kelly. The bold, brash charmer was everything Cole wasn't: confident, popular, and straight. Unfortunately Cole's secret blew up in his face, and he walked away.

Years later, when Brad needs help, he calls Cole. Now a respected trauma surgeon, Cole has learned not to risk his heart and is ready to be Brad's friend again. Things go well until Brad asks Cole to be his best man.

With both his parents dead, Brad never would have survived college or his brother's rounds of drug rehab without Cole. The five-year gap in their friendship was painful.

Now Brad's got his best friend back, a kick-ass job, and is engaged to the CEO's daughter. Life is great…until a hot encounter at his bachelor party leaves both men reeling. The sexual tension between the two is off the charts. Brad has commitments he needs to keep, but how can he go through with the wedding when he can't stop thinking about Cole?

And how can Cole stand beside his friend and watch him get married, especially now that he realizes he still loves Brad?

                                                   *5 STARS* 

This was another surprising 5 star read for me, I only have my OCD to blame for that. If I see a book on Amazon best selling list and its been there for a week or two in the top 20 I become very curious and then I read the reviews Yeah I know most of the time the reviews are all bullshit or just petty assholes but this books reviews intrigued me so I bought it. Damn I am so glad I did, I laughed through most of this story it's funny but very not silly the emotions are deep and intense and yes the sex is uber HOT!!! My heart broke for Cole so many times but also for Brad whose devotion to taking care of Danny made him think he couldn't have to one thing he needed most. I also wanted to smack the shit outta both of them multiple times in this book but LOVED the outcome and how both Brad & Cole had to deal with their own issues before dealing with each other. I would really like to read more by this author I enjoyed this story immensely it's an emotional read but not too intense it's also funny and sweet and super HOT so I HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Love Me Back To Life
The first time Noah Blackburn met Phoenix Quinlan, he’d known they were going to be best friends. It was fate, after all, since they were the same age and shared the same birthday. It hadn’t mattered that Noah lived in a sunny world where he spent his days wandering the Colorado mountains with his doting, artist father, while Phoenix hailed from the outskirts of town, where he lived with a dad who drank more than he worked and who ruled their house with a brutal temper. When the two boys were together, life was perfect, and neither of them could imagine being parted. But the spring before their sixteenth birthday, tragedy struck, robbing Noah of the father he’d adored. Shortly afterward, Phoenix began to withdraw, holding Noah at arm’s length, missing school…and then one day he just disappeared. Devastated by those events, Noah’s further shaken when, without warning, his emotionally detached mother moves them across the country, cutting Noah’s final tie to everything he’d once loved.

Twelve years later, Noah returns to La Paz, Colorado. He’s tired, emotionally battered, and looking for a fresh start, or maybe a restart of the life that had so long ago been derailed. But with painful memories haunting every corner, he begins to doubt his decision. Without his father, and especially without Phoenix, whom he can now admit was so much more to him than just a friend, his childhood town feels barren, absent of the connections that had once made it home.

But then, when he least expects it, Noah discovers something that shakes his world. He finds that truths aren’t always what they seem, quaint small towns can hide the darkest of secrets, and some heartaches run so deep only the strongest, most steadfast of loves can heal them.

                                                             *3.5 STARS*

Okay before I get into this story I gotta say I am a huge fan of M.L. Rhodes 'nough said. 
Now for this book I struggled with, mainly because it's kind of an intense deeply emotional story and at points made me bawl like a baby, it wasn't a easy story for me to read it has incest rape which I wish I had been warned about (tags people even in a flashback) but even with dealing with that intense emotional downfall and all the issues that ensued from that, both characters had a lot of issues that just needed to be dealt of course Phee were worse and really needed a therapist Noah had some as well. I had a hard time seeing these two as a couple at first they did grow on me but I struggled with their chemistry throughout the book. If you like a deep dark emotional read this is a book for you and Ms. Rhodes does an excellent job with her stories, for me it wasn't my favorite kind of story but it was well written and I will recommend it but be warned it deals with so intense issues but real ones never the less.

Alright peeps there's 3 more for ya hope you enjoy and Keep on reading, I always say books the eyes to the soul, never know where they will take you or how you will get there but  a book can take you on one amazing ride to get there. Later peeps

I"M BACK! and I got 3 more reviews for ya!

I know I disappeared for a while, had so life issues come up and smack me in the face so I got a little lost for a while. I 'm not a person who gets depressed I'm usually that friend that thinks everything will work out and the glass is always half full, so imagine my surprise when something happened and I realized I was the one who was being negative and sad, instead of thinking it'll all work out alright in the end. I couldn't even bring myself to want to read WTF? you say Yes I was depressed but thankfully I am seeing the light through the clouds now and their were 3 books that helped me break through I know it sounds silly to some but books have always been my salvation I'll say, they can make me laugh or cry or teach me something new so when I was at my worse point thats where I finally went to my books!
I also found tumblr and have not only spent an incredible amount of time on there I have found other people just like me, and yes sterek is back I mean teen wolf sorry, no not really sorry LOL speaking of tumblr it also made me want to go back and re-read my comfort reads so I went and finished A Matter of Time series by Mary Calmes again & Cut & Run series by Abigail Roux both really have helped bring me back from a really dark place so Thank You to those incredibly amazing and talented authors you may never know just what a difference your stories can have on a person but please note that they do! Ok  I gotta atleast brag about the 3 books that we'll say woke me up first is: STILL by Mary Calmes
 What happens when two men who have been together for seventeen years fall out of love? Sivan Cruz, a set director in San Francisco, and Walter Wainwright, a big shot Bay Area lawyer, find out the hard way. Walter loves Sivan with all his heart but rarely talks about it, and Sivan needs to hear the words. The language of the love they have shared for so long, that has enabled them to build a life together and raise two children, stops working. They become—still.

When Sivan asks for a divorce, Walter doesn’t know how to say no. They separate, but while Sivan sees the relationship as over, Walter sees only a temporary setback. He has never lost his passion for Sivan and decides he has to say something before he ends up loving his husband in silence for the rest of his life.

                                                                *5 STARS*

Now this story had me bawlin' from the first page, it's deeply emotional and being someone who has been in married for 20 yrs I got it. I completely understood where both Sivan & Walter were coming from sometimes life just gets in the way and sometimes we just let ourselves get in the way too. This is not an easy read its intense and sometimes heart wrenching but for me it was a great read. I wanted to smack Sivan about half of the story but I so totally got what he was feeling and most of us don't ever have anyone like Walter who never gives up. It's so easy nowdays to just give up and start over so most don't even try to fix what got broken so here's a great story of what could happen and I have to say I thought it was Awesome. I won't sugar coat it it is an intense emotional book you will cry, but there are also beautiful and sweet moments that will make you sigh. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND but please note you need a box of tissues.

A Tale Told In Darkness

Cal loves to snuggle up in bed with his partner, Lee, and listen to a tale told in the darkness. His favorite story is about the vampire, Lord Oliver Brook, a lone vampire in London, who uses humans for sex and food.

When Michael Benton moves in next door, Brook's world takes an unexpected turn. Young, blond and gorgeous, Michael doesn't discourage his attentions, but he makes it plain he doesn't want to become a vampire.

Against his own nature, Brook takes their relationship slowly. Then Michael disappears and Brook discovers he's not been the only one pursuing the young human. Will he find Michael before he's lost forever?

                                                              *5 STARS*
Now this story is kinda a short one and I believe its also gonna have a sequel (I hope it does anyway)
I bawled at this one too, but not from the beginning it's a really sweet sometimes funny some times intense love story that I truly didn't see the ending till I got there and I must say I wanted to read more of Cal & Michael their story starts as a story but becomes theirs very easily. It was another tissue read for me but I thought it was fun and sexy also. I seriously hope to read more it's such a fascinating story with interesting characters which is what I like in my favorite stories I like wanting more but please don't wait to long to give me more pretty please. ANOTHER HIGHLY RECOMMEND

All In
Even though he's really not over his ex-boyfriend Jamie, twenty three year old former football player Charlie finds himself drawn to Dante Dombruso, the gorgeous, highly dangerous leader of a mafia crime family. Dante is the perfect rebound fling -- six feet, four inches of raw sex and hard Italian muscle, wrapped in an expensive suit.

The confident, sexy crime boss is way out of Charlie’s comfort zone. But Charlie already lost everything once by giving in to his fear, and he's not willing to make the same mistake again.

If he’s going to do this, Charlie knows he can’t hold back. He can't date this man a little, he can't trust him a little, he can't go to bed with him a little. If he's going to get involved with Dante Dombruso, Charlie has to be All In.

                                                             *5 STARS*

This was another really great story not really a tearjerker but a really intense and sweet love story, this is a first book for me by this author, I have since bought 2 more from her yeah it was that good. I like the chemistry between Dante & Charlie and how they interacted with each other between the hot sex, at times deeply emotional and intense but also sweet and funny. This is definitely one I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

Ok I'm gonna stop for now but these three books were very cleansing for me, maybe it's true sometimes you just need to cry it out or sometimes you just need a book that says it will get better doesn't matter who you are or what your age is it can always get better. Later Peeps I promise not to be gone so long again

I have got to be outta my Fricking Mind!!!!

Okay, you ask What could Gigi possibly have done again? Well simply I hosted the Easter Family dinner at my house. Why you ask? after the lovely psycho Thanksgiving one I had here. I'm still trying to come up with the answer to that one, who knows maybe I'm a gluten for punishment, or I just have a really hard time saying NO!! I'm getting better at it but still if I'm not prepared for the asking I cave every time. One of the reasons hubs & I moved was because both of our families are very controlling, extremely nosy, and always have to give their opinions since we can do nothing right in either sides eyes. So with 17 people at my house I decided to skip traditional dinner and since it was warm grill out hamburgers & hotdogs needless to say that started the craziness that became our first sin of the day, I also invited my best friend along for the thrill ride she's just like me so the sarcasm was flowing right along, throw in some mischief and we were having a blast (okay add in a little rum & coke along with that mischief) it was needed trust me.
Anyway we had ex's and ex in laws all in the same house, my cheating niece brought her newest dud who was too lazy to even make his own plate (he also had the nerve to ask me to make him a plate WTH?) Yeah I'm not good at controlling my sarcasm and told him if he wanted a mommy he needed to go home to her, needless to say we don't get along, I do however get along with my ex nephew in law who is such a nice person (my niece is an idiot he was a great guy for her) I watched my niece get stupid jealous over my bestie talking to her ex (never mind the fact that it was about my bestie's husband LOL) my alcoholic brother search my cabinets for something to drink, my sister try to defend my nieces cheating and mine & hubs mom argue over how we kids have no morals and we're all going to hell in a hand basket. So after the Easter egg hunt I rushed everybody off as soon as possible, looked over at my hubs and said What the Hell were we thinking? He proceeded to laugh his ass off and ran to the store for a chaser for my rum. At one point I stood back and looked at this crazy bunch and thought maybe just maybe I was switched at birth I can only hope right?
And dammit to hell if I didn't get roped into throwing my mom her 80th birthday surprise party, I really do need to learn to say no ; )

So how was your Easter?

Touch & Geaux (Cut & Run #7) by Abigail Roux

Touch & Geaux (Cut & Run #7)
After having their faces plastered across the news during a high-profile case, FBI Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett have become more useful to the Bureau posing for photo ops than working undercover. Just as Zane is beginning to consider retirement a viable option, Ty receives a distress call from a friend, leading them to a city rife with echoes from the past.

New Orleans wears its history on its streets, and it’s the one place Ty’s face could get him killed. Surrounded by trouble as soon as they land, Ty and Zane are swiftly confronted with a past from which Ty can’t hide—one with a surprising connection to Zane’s.

As threats close in from all directions, both men must come to terms with the lives they’ve led and the lies they’ve told. They soon discover that not all their secrets are out yet, and nothing lasts forever.

                                                                   *5++ STARS*

I gotta a bone to pick with you Ms Roux, I am just too damn old to be up all night reading because I just can't put such an incredible story like this one down, you gotta take pity on us older folks we just can't handle that much excitement and then expect us to wait for the next amazing Ty & Zane book till next year. AUGH!! I'll just be that much older and can't handle a sleepless night of course if I would have been smart about it I would have waited till today to start it but there is no way I could have waited on an Abi Roux book that long just no way. Okay seeing as the Cut & Run series is my second favorite series ever each book has 5 Stars from me (they're exciting on the edge of your seat action but with such an intense romance story) and Ty & Zane have both made me love their characters and drawn me into adoring the secondary ones too especially Nick and now add Kelly and even a little bit of Liam in there mostly I'm just intrigued by him though. Anyway in this excellent installment we learn even more about Ty and his secrets (spoilers ppl if ya don't want stop here)  and can I just say Ms. Roux I cried my fricking eyes out you ripped my heart out but gave it back to me a little at a time so thank you for that. We learn a small bit about Zane and I absolutely loved the tie in with NO & Ty, what an beautiful way to add that I was very impressed. I also thought that the little pieces of previous books added in were awesome, made me want to go reread them again which I will most certainly do this week can't help myself this series is just that good. I also have to say with each book that I have read I fall more & more in love with these two characters not only are they sexy hot together (because Duh they are) they have such intensely real emotions Ms. Roux makes you feel those emotions along with her characters you can see where each one is coming from and it becomes as intense for the reader as it does for the characters. I find it funny cuz I swear these two attract trouble but thats what makes the stories exciting and makes us not able to put it down we have to see what happens next. I won't give to much away but Dammit to Hell that ending was fucking Awesome but please please don't make me wait til next year I need more my OCD can't take it LOL. If you haven't read any of this series you need to I was hooked with the first book and when I need to feel good I pull out this series it's a comfort read of mine it's not an instant love but drawn out slowly in each book which I love with this series, I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND (can you tell I love this series? o_0 

PS. Ms. Roux I'd really like to read a story of Nick I hated him when we first met him but now adore him, please pretty please....puppy dog eyes....we really need to read more Nick you have made him such an interesting character how can we not?

Oops I spoke too soon

Yep I should have waited to voice my Hollyoakes praise because Dammit to Hell if they didn't fuck up this story line, here I was praising how they sent Brendan off in a gun battle only to find out he barely even got his shoulder hurt WTF? Seriously people all they have accomplished is sending Brendan to prison again & knowing Ste he will never get over it UGH!!!! I am so disappointed in Hollyoakes I mean they had the perfect ending to Brendan's character and folded. So yeah I'm done with that show.

Of course Spartacus tonight was freaking Awesome, we have hope that Agron might just survive at least for another episode. I hope I just love this couple and want Nagron to make it out alive of course this is Spartacus and most everybody ends up dying but we have hope still, and Yes I am watching it again. LOL while hubs is laughing at me telling him to be quiet or sit still. Now I have to wait 2 weeks WHAT? two weeks you say? for episode 9 Tumblr will just have to keep me going till then.

Hi, My name is Gigi and I am now Tumblr addict

Okay it's official I'm addicted to Tumblr thats all it is to it. I mean first youtube sucked me in with it's shipping these super couples now tumblr has me too. I'm going to pull a James Dean and scream "I'm losing my mind" I think it was JD anyway but hell who knows. Anyway I gotta get some things off my chest first I've been watching Hollyoakes since "stendan" started and like most great couples on tv ( you know the ones that you just can't forget about) these two actors had some incredible chemistry. * Spoiler Alert*  I watched the conclusion to their story last night, and kudos to the writer's of Hollyoakes for the way they sent Brendan off, I usually hate to see when they kill off at least one of a super gay couple (which I might add happens alot or they have a kid and move away) What's up with that? ok I'll get to that topic another time but back to stendan there could have been no other way to save Brendan NONE! because of the complexity of the character his send off though sad and yes I cried like a baby couldn't have been better. The only thing that could have made it better was a little more stendan time at the end there that's it, yes it was heart wrenching but it worked with this particular couple mainly because of the character of Brendan but like I said I thought the send off for this couple was Awesome!

Now onto my next new addiction Nagron LOL yes I am now watching Spartacus on Starz only because of Agron & Nasir who make this show for me. Are you ROFL yet? My hubs did since he knows I'm not a history buff actually I can't even tell you how many times I have made hubs change the channel from the history channel I just have never enjoyed it..shrugs's just not my thing. So when my hubs seen me watching Spartacus he starts laughing his ass off saying if more guys would make out I'd be alot more interested in History, What can I say? I like men o_0
Anyway I am now a fan and hubs & I watch together which kinda sucks cuz it's ending soon in like 3 episodes...pouting...I just found them don't take them from me yet...whining....Okay I'm done now but these two actors have an incredible chemistry that makes them a super couple, I watched an interview with the writer Steven DeKnight and he said he wanted to show a love story that took it's time and let us get to know these characters who just fall in love with each other It's really a beautiful love story even with all the gore. Since you see these two guys evolve into guys who have such heart & passion not just for each other but the cause that they are fighting for too. I gotta say another Kudos for Starz and Mr. DeKnight for this intense but beautiful romance that won't be easily forgotten.
So if you haven't seen Spartacus yeah it's bloody and gory as hell but a really interesting story not only for Nagron but others in the storyline too, they just happen to be my favorite couple. I have a pic of the actor Dan Feuerriegel who plays Agron as my wallpaper he's in a tube standing up and hubs walked by stopped and said Damn even I think that's hot. Super Hilarious moment at our house.

And a couple months back I got hooked on Sterek which is the shipper couple on MTV's Teen Wolf I posted about it not long ago. It's another really good show that got me hooked because of chemistry between actors. It truly doesn't matter whether the characters are playing gay roles or not, it can be a bromance or even a het couple but some actors just are so good that their characters relate with certain ones and that's where we get these shipper couples. It's all in the Chemistry I have seen so called "super couples" on a soap who one leaves ends up on another soap when partner 2 comes along it doesn't work the same and falls apart. Well Duh one it depends on the actors, the writer's, the storyline and even the surrounding storylines and hell some actors are just that damn good that they can ship with anyone.

 Okay I'm gonna go now but send me your favorite shipper couples or favorite gay couples Later Peeps Happy Reading!!!!
