Brooklyn Blues by R.E. Hargrave

BROOKLYN BLUES
by R.E. Hargrave
Genre: BDSM Erotica (Short Story)

By day, Brooklyn Crenshaw goes to work and does her job. She doesn’t make waves, simply follows orders and stays off the radar. Oh, and she might have a crush on WILLIAM K. BAXTER from across the hall. Each time she passes his office—with his polished name plate on the window—her gut clenches with desire at the sight of him. But he never looks up, can’t possibly know who she is, and even if he did, her needs would send him running. Because they always ran.
At night, in private, she turns on her laptop so that her Sir can turn her on. Brooklyn’s never seen His face, but she knows His voice and the magic of His words. The arrangement works for her. Mostly.
As the office holiday party approaches, Brooklyn starts receiving Secret Santa gifts which suggest more than casual interest, Sir reveals his fondness for exhibition and voyeurism, and WILLIAM K. BAXTER finally looks up at her, and waves.
Brooklyn begins to question everything. Does she continue to follow the orders of a man who hides behind technology, but is always there, or does she take a chance on the man right in front of her who’s seen her at long last? Then there is the Secret Santa who seems to know what makes Brooklyn tick. So many decisions.
‘Tis the season… to be kinky.

by Jayne Frost

Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance 18+

As the bassist for the band Caged, the last three years have been one, long non-stop party. Sure, I’ve had some regrets. Everyone does. But getting trapped in a relationship isn’t one of them. I know good and well what happens when the attraction fades. I’ve seen it first hand. Love is a zero sum game, so why play? As long as I’m upfront about my feelings, no one gets hurt. Besides, I’m never in one place long enough to worry about tomorrow.
That is, until the band decided to take an extended hiatus in our hometown. That’s when I met Melody Sullivan. She’s the full-package. Whip smart and beautiful, with enough determination to take on anything life has in store. And the best part? Melody shares my philosophy on the fleeting nature of attraction. She doesn’t buy into the whole “happily ever after” crap anymore than I do. We’re perfect for each other. For now. And now is all I want.
With the expectations off the table, I can let my guard down and enjoy her company until the spark dies. And we both know it will. In a week, or a month. But until then, we’ll just keep having fun.

Well done, Ms. Alexander!
By J. Rhoadeson Verified Purchase
When I started this story, I thought this was going to be a typical ‘average looking girl meets handsome superstar, love ensues’ type book. Boy, was I wrong. This is romantic suspense and it will take you on a roller coaster of smiles and tears as things come together and fall apart. The characters were engaging, the dialogue smooth, the feelings genuine, and the suspense, well, suspenseful. The romance is sweet, filled with emotion without the sex and a refreshing change from my usual fare. I enjoyed it tremendously, and I’m looking forward to reading the next installment. Well done, Ms Alexander!
Must Read Clean Romance!!

Wow!! This story had me glued from the first page. If you like romance with many twist and turns, this book is for you. So many twist and turns that you will never guess what’s coming next and you will be on the edge of your seat the whole time. Paige and Kellan have this instant connection that even the reader can feel. Sometimes they mess up but when they get it right, you will be cheering them on. This is a clean romance story that will make you laugh, cry and feel the struggles each person goes through. So happy I got to read this book early. Everyone will love this story.

Fire, Fury & Faith by N.D Jones

FIRE, FURY, FAITH

by
N.D. Jones

And the person she wants most to heal is Issa, her husband, her soul mate, her warrior. But what is a woman to do when a husband’s guilt and fury challenge the very foundation of their marriage? 

Audible Review


“Love Across the Ages”


If you could sum up Fire, Fury, Faith in three words, what would they be?
Entertaining
Lovely
Heart-warming
What was one of the most memorable moments of Fire, Fury, Faith?
The information the author gave about the brutality of the slave raid. The author didn’t dwell on the ugliness of such events, but told just enough so the reader could get a feel for its cruelty and impact on its survivors – Serwa and Issa
Which scene was your favorite?
Serwa ‘s forgiveness. She was a powerful angel with a good heart. But she wasn’t the type of angel that was all goodness and light. There were depths to both main characters. But Serwa was a forgiving character, which endeared her to me.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Issa’s efforts at redemption was heartbreaking as much as it was heart-warming to see how much he loved his wife and daughters. He was a true Guardian Angel.
Any additional comments?
I hope the author continues with the second book in the series.

I was born and raised in Queens, NY, and I currently reside in Los Angeles, CA.
During my formative years I mainly expressed myself through art and music. Highlights include performing in the all-city Queens band as a saxophonist and copyrighting my own comic strip character. Later I was accepted in to a five year architecture degree program at the esteemed Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA.
Unfulfilled with architecture alone, I found new artistic outlets in the performing arts at CMU, while simultaneously studying architecture. I choreographed and danced in dance shows, modeled in runway shows, and acted in short films and mainstage plays.
Determined to follow my passion for performance, I went straight from CMU to CalArts in Valencia, CA, where I earned an MFA in acting.
Everything I have learned – from my early years of drawing and music, to my architectural years of spacial planning and design, to my time at conservatory acting training – continues to feed the art that I create with each project that I’m involved in.

N. D. Jones lives in Maryland with her husband and two children. Having earned a M.A. in Political Science, she is a dedicated educator. She taught high school social studies for nine years. Currently, she is a professional development specialist with a local Maryland school system, working on increasing student achievement through teacher and administrator efficacy. N.D. is also a continuing education student who is pursuing her doctorate in education in Community College Leadership. A desire to see more novels with positive, sexy, and three-dimensional African American characters as soul mates, friends, and lovers, inspired the author to take on the challenge of penning such romantic reads. She is the author of two paranormal romance series: Winged Warriors and Death and Destiny. N.D. likes to read historical and paranormal romance novels, as well as comics and manga.

Audible review 5✯ by Anna Salamatin (March 22, 2016)

“Smexy Christmas” 

Would you listen to Unwrapping Noel again? Why?
Sure, it’s a true to life story line. Noel could easily be one of my friends or colleges. 

What did you like best about this story?
It’s about mature, adult people with life experiences under their belts. They are dealing with stuff that life really throws at you. 

Which character – as performed by Sara Gordon – was your favorite?
She really brought Noel to life for me. I felt her emotions.
I also liked how she portrays Anna, and brings her out of the shadowy side lines so to speak. 

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I did listen to it in one day. 

Any additional comments?
This is a captivating, emotional, and romantically erotic romance about not just finding love, (after a devastating betrayal) but finding THE LOVE, and having the courage to trust again. … Noel’s story just spoke to me.

Sara Gordon
How long have you been narrating audio books?
A: Since June 2015
What made you decide to do this?
A: I took a voiceover class as I was very interested in animation and commercial voiceover. Audiobooks were something that we touched upon in class and was intrigued by the process.
Is it hard to ‘get into character’?
A: It depends. Some days, external events happen that can kind of dampen the day, but when I get in the booth, it’s pretty easy. Knowing the characters and knowing yourself is what makes it smooth.
Are there any characters you’ve narrated that you identify with?
A: There is something I can relate to in every character I’ve done, but not one in particular that I identify with wholly.
What are your favorite genres to narrate?
A: Children’s books. They are so much fun and you can let your imagination go and try new voices. It gives you a license to be larger than life. Those characters can be anything and you have to decide, if say the character was a tree, you know, what would a tree sound like?
Are sex scenes difficult for you?
A: A little. While I do work from home, it can still feel a little strange and awkward. You have to plan things out about breaths and if it makes sense to keep it during the editing process or is it becoming too breathy and what not. Sometimes I can hear people in the apartment next to me and I wonder, ‘Can they hear me?’ Ha ha, I’m not as open in my own sexuality sometimes and I think that’s the hardest part about doing sex scenes. But, like anything else, when you remember that you have a job to do, you make it work.
Is there any genre you don’t narrate?
A: At this point in time, not really. I’m open to almost anything.
How was it working with Jennifer Theriot? 
A: Absolutely wonderful. She was very quick to answer any question as well as generous and patient during the process of recording, editing, and reviewing each audio chapter. It was a great experience.
Do you have a career aside from narrating?
A: I am a singer and actor in New York. To help pay the bills, I’ve had many “day jobs”, mostly as a nanny or in retail.
Any favorite authors you’ve worked with?
A: The authors that I’ve worked with have been great! This is actually only my second audiobook but I’m excited to keep going and maybe one day record something for a book or author that I admire.
How important are strong female characters to you?
A: Very important. I like female characters that are well rounded, strong but still vulnerable, and hopefully not one dimensional. When you have well rounded characters, that’s what creates a relatability- a way to connect better to them and the overall story. We need more of that for female characters because women are not one dimensional. Representation in every form is important.
Do you narrate both male and female voices?
A: Yes. Sometimes I try to record the male voices in the morning when I’ve almost just woken up and my voice isn’t warmed up. It’s lower then and the sound just seems more realistic.
What does Sara Gordon do for fun? What are your hobbies and interests?
A: I love to paint, sing, and visit family in Brooklyn. I used to do races and half marathons and such and now I’m starting to get back into it.
Does your ‘significant other’ (if applicable) support your narrating career?
A: While it’s not applicable for a significant other, my family and friends are very supportive of my work and what I want to do with my life.

Todd O’Malley has been called many things, from filthy mouthed jerk to legendary Rock God.

When did you come to the realization that this was something you wanted to do?
 
2015 – It was always an idea that floated around in my head, and people always encouraged me to do it, but it was not until recently that I actually pursued it!
How long has you been doing narration/producing?
6 Months, I am quite new but progressing very quickly!
Is there any type of book you WON’T narrate? If so, why?
Only books that require accents I can’t do 😉
How many times does you normally read/record a chapter before you’re satisfied?
Depending on the difficulty of the book sometimes the first chapters might be recorded more often to get attuned with the author and how they want it done, then it becomes easier!
Can you work with a cold?
Nooooooo…. generally not. Snotty, sneezy, coughy, or raspy voice makes it not worth the time to record.
How long did it take to make this audio book?
This audiobook ended up being about 3x the length of the total finished recorded hours!
How many audio books can you make in a month?
This greatly depends on length! Generally, full length 10 hour novels I can do about 2 per month with other projects and various other jobs included.
Do you prefer to read male or female characters?
I prefer male because I am male, but I’ve developed many female voices and do not mind at all!
Do you use this newfound fame to pick up ladies?
I do not need anymore help in picking them up 😉 I’ve always been able to use the “I play guitar, bass, violin, and keyboard” card if I needed any help :p
Do you ever identify with the characters you narrate? If so, how?
I identify a LOT with many characters! Typically I find many of the naughty romances and main characters that have a music background constantly have me thinking “hmmmm……that sounds familiar”
Does you have a significant other? If so, is she supportive of your narrating career?
I have a lovely girlfriend! We support each other in almost every decision the other makes, except what is for dinner sometimes….
Any favorite books you’ve narrated? What genre does you prefer to produce?
TOSK was incredibly fun and relatable for me, I love Todd’s character and his general adventure!! I suppose I prefer Sci-Fi, but my listeners prefer me to do romance, and I prefer to make them happy!
Do you find the authors difficult to work with?
Generally no, I don’t find many people difficult to work with as long as you possess the skills to communicate and put the effort in!
Any favorite authors you’ve worked with? If so, why?
Jennifer Theriot was fun, exciting and totally supportive while providing necessary direction to make the production great! Also, I love every author I work with!
Do you have a favorite project you’ve done and why?
It’s hard to pick a favorite! I generally choose to work on books that I enjoy, relate to, or challenge me. I have some projects coming up that are in the making, and are super character intense. I find the projects that require many different characters or challenge me to develop new voices are very fun!
Do you have a career other than narrating?
I do voice acting full time. I worked an office job since I was 18 until I was 25 doing IT work, customer service, customer relations, case management and various hardware troubleshooting. I’ve never knew what it felt like to do something you love for a job until now.
What are your hobbies and interests?
My whole life generally revolves around music. I am not fully happy If I don’t hear new good music often or If I don’t compose or play music often enough. I’ve played violin when i was younger for about 7 years then started playing guitar/bass, with keyboards here and there, drums occasionally, singing, and just using my computer to make techno/house beats for the last 10 years.
