First Comes Like

A Novel

By Alisha Rai
Narrated by: Saira Ayers & Neil Shah
Length: 11 hours 10 minutes

First Comes Like

“The third installment of Alisha Rai's Modern Love series might just be her best. Jia is a practicing Muslim who has been communicating with soap star and son of Bollywood royalty, Dev Dixit. Dev has recently arrived in Hollywood with his niece and Uncle in tow to make his crossover attempt in the American television market and he has no idea who Jia is. Through a series of events that only Rai could conjur, the two go from a horrifying catfishing situation to fake dating as they attempt to live up to their family expectations. Only, might they be falling for each other? First Comes Like is an insanely steamy yet almost completely sex-free novel that somehow manages to seamlessly fit all the tropes -- from fake dating to arranged marriage to only one bed -- and I could not love it more.”

Act Your Age, Eve Brown

A Novel

By Talia Hibbert
Narrated by: Ione Butler
Length: 10 hours 51 minutes

Act Your Age, Eve Brown

“Dear me, I think Eve's might just be my favorite story of the Brown Sisters series! This book is absolute bliss—hilarity, charm, and burning hot sex in a delightfully diverse package. At first I thought Jacob's autistic quirks were a bit on the nose, but as I got to know him better, the nuance of the character really blossomed. Reading about Eve's milder autism made me realize that I might be autistic, too. Talia Hibbert's #OwnVoices, smutty, full-hearted brilliance strikes again! I can't recommend this one enough.”
