Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
I just love the Beautiful B* series. It's so hard to pick a favorite when it comes to these guys. I wasn't sure I would even like Will since he is such a player. However, he was so charming and honest that I couldn't help but fall for him. Like the other books in this series there is plenty of HOTNESS! Which is what I love best about this series. I just hope we get more from this fantastic writing duo.
Covet asks the age old question of whether or not men and women can just be friends. It also digs a little deeper into infidelity, both on a physical and emotional level.
Claire is a lonely mother of two who is seriously put to the test when her husband of 12 years losses his job and sinks into a deep depression. Once he is back on track and working again, she is left alone for days and weeks as he travels about 90% of the time. Claire is lonely and desperate for any emotional support or connection. In walks Officer Daniel Rush, a hot police officer who is available and willing to offer her friendship and support.
I don’t want to give away any spoilers to this story, but I will say this book really made me think about my own marriage and relationships in general. Cheating is a very controversial subject and the author pulls this off beautifully with no judgment on either side. The book is written in all 3 POVs so it does give some insight into each character and something for the listener to ponder.
Some parts of this book are little mundane as the author goes through the daily tasks of being a mother of two young children. For this reason I can’t give the book a solid 5 stars. I really enjoyed the appearance of Claire’s friends and neighbors. It reminded me that you never really know what happens behind closed doors. Overall this was a really thought provoking and enjoyable listen.
I am not a big fan of zombie stories (with the exception of the Walking Dead). I decided to get this book based on all the good reviews on Audible. I am so glad I did!!! This story was so unique and so captivating. It's both weird and wonderful. I've never read anything like it. Kudos to both Issac Marion for writing such a rich and enthralling story and to Kevin Kenerly for bringing it to life with his amazing performance. 5 Stars all around!!!
I'm so glad I downloaded The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat (ok, I'm not crazy about the title.) It was an impulse download, but the sample had made me laugh out loud so I thought I'd give it a shot. Now that I've listened to it, I wish all of my impulses ended this well!
The center and main narrator of the book is Odette - a middle-aged, black woman who lives in a small town in Indiana with her two best friends, her husband James, and a handful of lively ghosts - including Old Earl of the title. Odette was "born in a sycamore tree" and is rumored to be fearless. Time and time again, however, she proves she isn't just fearless, she's wise and filled with compassion.
Also, because of the way the narrative shifts between the past and the present, I really felt like I've known these characters their whole lives, like I was a part of their circle. I don't want to give away the plot, but I can say that I will be recommending this to anyone who asks me "read anything good lately?"' and l will be looking for more from this author. Bravo!
