Croc's Return by Eve Langlais
Narrator: Chandra Skyye
Length: 6 hrs and 17 mins
Date Read: February 2016
Genre: PNR, Romance
Coming home doesn’t always solve things … but it does pave the way for second chances.
Take one deadly bite and, bam, a man’s life is changed forever, or so Caleb discovers when a loss of control leads to him joining the military and leaving everything behind.
Time goes by … years spent silent and alone, cut off from those he loves. Until it’s time to come back, a scarred veteran, in many ways broken and looking for a meaning to his life. Perhaps it's not too late to right some wrongs. Make amends. Kiss a certain pair of sweet lips one more time.
If only Renny would damned well let him.
It doesn’t take Caleb long to realize Renny’s just the thing this croc needs to bring him back to life. Yet, what if he loses control again? He doesn’t want to take nibbling on her thighs to a whole new level.
Too bad, he can’t stay away, especially not when he discovers her secret. Add in a strange creature stalking the townsfolk and there is no way he’s leaving her alone.
Years ago it just about killed him to leave, but Caleb’s a changed man now. A darker kind of animal, and this retired soldier is ready to kill so he can stay.
Welcome to Bitten Point, where the swamp doesn't just keep its secrets, it sometimes eats them.

First Thought when Finished: I really loved the town and characters in Croc’s Return. I think this series and I will be great friends!
Overall Thoughts: I have been looking forward to Croc’s Return since the end of the Kodiak Series. NOTE: You don’t have to read the Kodiak Series to read Croc’s Return (the connection is small) but Kodiak is a favorite of mine so I recommend it for that reason. Croc’s Return pretty much delivered on my expectations, especially in the characters and setting category. In classic Eve style she made me laugh to the point of snorting, cheer, and even want to head slap some of the characters. She did a great job of setting up the stories to come. As far as Caleb and Renny? I really enjoyed their story though I felt they needed to have their talk a little sooner. Their second chance romance was classic. You could feel their connection and history. The action was on point and can’t wait to see where we go from here!
Narrated By Chandra Skyye / Length: 6 hrs and 17 mins
Chandra is a very solid narrator! This wasn’t my favorite performance by her (it was mostly when she was talking as the inner animal that I felt it was a little off) but it was still worth listening too. She has a fun way of bringing characters alive and showing their quirky sides.

During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
