  • "Loved It!!!"

    Overall

    I love a book with suspense and romance (not all mushy, mushy). This one has both and held my interest from the beginning to the end. This was my second audio by Jennifer Crusie and will purchase more of them. It could become a movie, except they would butcher the story when they rewrite and start filming, so maybe it should be left alone as a book. I wish she would write a sequel about the brother--maybe I will go to her website and suggest it.

    Every time I write a review on these audio tapes, I can't stress it enough, the narrator can make or break a book. Angela Dawe's does a wonderful job distinguishing the characters--you can hear the difference (will listen to more from her as well).

    Get it, you will enjoy. Glad to be the first to review.

    When Andie tries to gain closure with her ex-husband, he asks one final favor of her. A distant cousin has died and left North the guardian of two orphans. When Andie meets the two children, she realizes the situation is much worse than she feared. Carter and Alice aren’t your average delinquents, and the creepy old house where they live is being run by the worst housekeeper since Mrs. Danvers. Complicating matters is Andie’s fiancé’s suspicion that this is all a plan by North to get Andie back.

    Ember Walsh is a trusting soul with the quiet beauty of her late mother, who perished in a mysterious car crash when Ember was three. A little tomboyish from being raised by her father, Ember packs a punch when a stranger gets pushy with her in a bar, catching the steely blue eyes of a tall, gorgeous tattooed man — Trace Montgomery. Still damaged from her last disastrous relationship and warned off the bad boy by friends, Ember fights the smoldering heat that Trace sparks in her when he begins shadowing her like a dark angel.

    Very good. I could not put it down. Listened to the book through while sorting through old paperwork. The story was great. Rachel Gibson can be proud of herself again.

    While reading, I had to check out what other books Emma Bates had narrated so that I could add them to my list to listen to. This is her first narration on Audible, as far as I can tell. She brought the story out, did the characters well--she just did an excellent job. I will most defintely look for others that she will narrate. Whoevever makes these decisions, use her again.

    This was worth the credit. I look forward to the next RG book.

    "OMG! Loved this book....."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I am on a book high after listening to Georgia Cates Beauty From Pain. High...yes this book was some of the finest audible Crack I have ever devoured. There are only a few books that make it too my all time favorite's shelf...and this is one of them.

    Laurelyn aka Paige is an attractive twenty-two year old aspiring country music artist, avid pole dance exercise enthusiast and happy-go-lucky sort of person (she somewhat reminded me of Mary from the movie Something About Mary.) Laurelyn and her best friend Addison take a much needed vacation all the way around the world in Australia. On her first night out on the town she meets Jack aka Lachlan.... who stalks her like a hunter selecting its prey. Jack is a super attractive, Aussie vineyard owner who wants nothing more than to add Laurelyn to his no strings attached anonymous piece of ass list. Laurelyn is super attracted to Jack and has no idea he is Australia's most sought after eligible bachelor. Jack lays his cards on the table by offering Laurelyn a relationship "agreement" with promises of the slamming sex and fun while she is on holiday with the expectation of nothing more. Laurelyn dives into this relationship understanding that she will cease to exist in Jack's life when her three month trip is over and they part ways. She doesn't think she will fall for Jack since she will be going back to the US. Jack is thrilled that she agrees to their commitment free relationship with a firm expiration date in place. She didn't expect that her heart would ever turn into emotional road kill. He didn't think he would ever want to settle down...and this is their story.
    I have to say I LOVED this book. Cates writing style is brilliant and engaging... and awesome steam factor. Listen to this books now...if you can deal with a cliffhanger ending. Cates published the first chapter of book two...which will hold me over. Ok...truth be told I'm dying for the next book. Cates is a writer to watch and this book effing rocks!

  • Sinners at the Altar: Sinners on Tour, Book 6

    "Another Fantastic Sinners Book"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    OMG!! Olivia Cunning has done it again!! Sinners At The Altar was well worth the wait! I got to fall in love with my Sinners, esp. one Brian "Master" Sinclair, all over again. I even got myself a new Sinner to love, yes, and his name is Malcolm "Mal" Trey Sinclair!! I'm not sure what Myrna and Brian are going to do with him, since he has his father's cover model good looks and his Godfather's ornery/cocky attitude, even down to that grin, and heaven's forbid he is as talented as his father or his Godfather, and, not to mention, he has everyone of those Sinners and Lady Sinners wrapped around his pudgy little finger. That little guy is a trip and I loved every minute of Mal. I hope we get more of him, esp. older Mal in the Exodus End series since Trey is his Godfather!! And my goodness, that Trey Mills never stops with his insane antics and I love him for it!! You can never get enough Trey Mills.

    Brian and Myrna's story was very good. Goodness I love Brian. He has the best heart and he is so romantic. He really loves his wife. Myrna is a very lucky lady. Yeah, there were times when Myrna's jealousy was a bit much, but we have to remember that this story is coming out after we read all of the other Sinners on Tour books, so we know she never acted on it, but we also never really got to know how Myrna really felt after she witnessed Trey's obvious love for Brian and knowing that Trey wanted Brian for himself. However, I will say at one point she went way too far and I didn't really enjoy what she was doing because I felt that she only wanted to do it because of her jealousy when it came to Trey and she was trying to prove something that did not need to be proven. Brian loves her heart, mind, body and soul!! He is hers and she is his!!

    Sed and Jessica's story was very good up until a certain point. I thought that Jessica had redeemed herself after she totally came across as a WITCH in Rock Hard to me, but nope, she still made Sed's story not one of my favorites once again. I was thoroughly enjoying the story and was happy with the outcome of the situation with her mother, but then Jessica once again turned into a total WITCH. Her behavior was totally unnecessary during the dinner and, once again, I was left wondering what Sed saw in this woman!! Goodness, she was awful. She needs to learned when is the proper time to assert her "Independent Woman" stance and then maybe we can take her seriously!! I am also tried of hearing about how smart she is. Umm...Myrna is very smart too, as are all the other Lady Sinners, and we don't hear about how smart they are every two seconds. If you have to say it that much it makes one wonder. In my book, the smartest thing Jessica ever did was marry Sed.

    Eric and Rebekah's story was very good. Their story was so sweet. It really showed Eric's romantic side and how far he would go to show the woman he loves just how much he loves her. Rebekah is a very lucky girl to have Mr. Eric Sticks as her husband. Eric is silly, loving and has a heart of gold. I know Isaac was terrible to Rebekah and Eric, but I feel so bad for him, because Trey really messed him up and I want him to find a HEA.

    Jace and Aggie's story was absolute perfection. I loved the fact that there were 2 stories happening at one time. I loved that we got to see just how sensitive Jace can be, and the same for Aggie. I loved seeing how much they have progressed in their relationship when it comes to showing their feelings for each other, esp. Jace. He is so darn cute and lovable. Their vows, esp. Jace's, were so romantic and absolutely geared towards them and their love for each other. They were perfect. My only complaint was Starr. Yuck!! I did not like her and her jealousy, and I am really hoping not to have to read about her anymore. She was tactless and tacky!! I was happy to see that, besides the other Sinners, Dare was involved in Jace's wedding as well, since it was because of him that Jace was even a member of Sinners.

    I cannot wait for Sinners in Paradise and I really am hoping that we get Sinners Rock the Cradles sooner than later. I have to admit that Sinners At The Altar has totally gotten me all excited for the Exodus End series. I wish it was coming out RIGHT NOW!! So, I just wanted to say thank you so much Olivia Cunning for giving us Sinners fan more of our guys, and for giving me, in particular, one baby Sinner by the name of Mal Sinclair!! I love that little guy. When he grows up he is going to be worse than his father and Godfather combined, so the ladies better watch out!! Hahahaha!! Very well done, Olivia Cunning. I can't wait for the next Sinners' book!! Keep those Sinners coming!!

    As always Justine O.Keef was outstanding with the delivery of the story.

  • Wildest Dreams

    "Steamy Romance In New Orleans"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    A woman disguises herself as a high-priced call girl to help find her missing sister in Toni Blake's latest steamy novel, WILDEST DREAMS. It's a sizzling hot romance that takes place in the heart of New Orleans. Jake Broussard is a local New Orleans ex-cop who is now working as a bartender at an exclusive club called the Chez Sophia. Stephanie Grant is a sexually naive woman from Chicago who thinks she can disguise herself as a call girl in order to find her missing younger sister Tina.

    When the two meet the sparks fly. Jake teaches Stephanie a lot of things behind closed doors, but Stephanie's main objective is to find her sister, who she thinks is now a prostitute. Jake doesn't want a committed relationship, but unfortunately Stephanie starts to subconsciously think that he really loves her. The sex is hot, and Stephanie tries to remind herself that after they find Tina, it's "goodbye, Jake".

    On the other hand, Jake's past with Becky was a welcome part of the story, as it explained why he had a hard time getting seriously involved with any woman, including Stephanie. The author teases the reader, throwing out hints who Becky was, until their history is finally explained.

    WILDEST DREAMS had plenty of sexy erotic scenes for those who love their romances hot and wild. However, for those who like their romances a little bit more tame, this may not be for you. The mystery behind the missing Tina adds a dimension to the novel that the reader will enjoy.
    A terrific romance with a dash of mystery. Yes, it sizzles with hot love scenes, but it's more than just that. You actually care about the characters. Stephanie is strong yet vulnerable. And Jake. Sigh. I just loved reading about him, yet ached for his heartbreak. Together they're one couple you can see being together.
    Amy Rubinate was fantastic with the delivery of the story

    Such a romantic story. I like how these two people came together with no intentions of actually being together, but the chemistry was so great that they just couldn't help it. I like how Alexa stayed true to her character from the very beginning. The characters are so real and believable. A good mix of hot sex and angst I really enjoyed the book and will continue with the series.The narrator did a great job and I will look for more books by her.

  • "Fantastic Read!!"

    7 of 7 helpful votes

    Gripping, tense, quite a ride of a story. Can’t wait till the next book is out this is quite a story, can’t wait to see Amy and Max mix it up. It never ceases to amaze me what a tangle web we have in the executive branch of our government, and how each lil branch want their lil niche and no one can step in it without letting someone know. I would think they would have been happy that an air plane disaster had been adverted and lives saved, rather than question where the Intel came from, and who got it first. In this story we have bad guys in the FBI, DHS (dept. of homeland security) local police (although this wasn’t established for sure) and in the Naval Dept. So it became a question of WHO CAN YOU TRUST? I wouldn’t be surprised if the corruption goes even higher, like a senator in our government, but that is for the next book. Now for Zane and Beth, the physic link they have with each other was quite endearing. Beth denied it but she sure did believe in using it when she was in trouble. I really got a kick out of her using it when they were making love, which was so endearing. Get this book, it was fantastic. Worth a credit.
    Narrator did a fantastic job.

    Don Tillman, professor of genetics, has never been on a second date. So when an acquaintance informs him that he would make a "wonderful" husband, his first reaction is shock.

    "Gideon Cross came into my life like lightning in the darkness… He was beautiful and brilliant, jagged and white-hot. I was drawn to him as I’d never been to anything or anyone in my life. I craved his touch like a drug, even knowing it would weaken me. I was flawed and damaged, and he opened those cracks in me so easily…Gideon knew. He had demons of his own. And we would become the mirrors that reflected each other’s most private wounds…and desires."
