    Claire Walters has worked for Jason Danvers as his assistant for three years, but he’s never appreciated her as a woman - until the day she jumps out of a cake at his friend’s bachelor party.... To support her ailing mother, Claire is forced to work a second job at a party-planning company. But when her handsome boss ends up with a front-row seat to the action, she’s mortified - and he’s intrigued. With Danvers International in the middle of an important merger, Jason asks Claire to accompany him on weekend business trips - and suddenly all her fantasies are coming true.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this audiobook, the story is warm and anyone in my age group could probably relate to issues in Claire and her Mother’s life living with a verbally abusive husband and the death of a sibling. I like these feel good stories and how strong the women are and that love is never where you think it is, had me in tears at times, Jason is just so cool. The ending was predictable no angst just love. The narration was good.

    An ancient evil awakens ... Alex Hunter has been found – sullen, alone, leaving a path of destruction as he wanders across America. Only the foolish get in the way of the drifter wandering the streets late at night. Across the world, something has been released by a treasure hunter in a hidden chamber of the Basilica Cisterns in Istanbul. Something hidden there by Emperor Constantine himself, and deemed by him too horrifying and dangerous to ever be set free.

    Yeah, The Arcadian is back, this is another gripping, suspenseful, all-consuming story and Greig Beck does not disappoint. Once you start listening you will not stop. The narration by Sean Mangan just makes it; he is fantastic as with the other books he knows just how to keep you riveted.

    After her father loses the family fortune in an insider-trading scheme, single mom Parker Welles is faced with some hard decisions. First order of business: go to Gideon's Cove, Maine, to sell the only thing she now owns-a decrepit house in need of some serious flipping.

    I enjoyed this book just a bit long winded. It’s a story of a lawyer middle aged married for over 15 years has a brief affair with another lawyer becomes infatuated by her, affair ends and she is found murdered. He as a practising PA gets assigned to her murder case, and then finds himself accused of her murder. His wife dutifully stands by her man with their son. He is acquitted but the question is who did kill Carolyn??? I guessed it……

    NASA is building a probe to be splashed down in the Kraken Mare, the largest sea on Saturn’s great moon, Titan. It is one of the most promising habitats for extraterrestrial life in the solar system, but the surface is unpredictable and dangerous, requiring the probe to contain artificial intelligence software. To this end, Melissa Shepherd, a brilliant programmer, has developed "Dorothy", a powerful, self-modifying AI whose true potential is both revolutionary and terrifying. When miscalculations lead to a catastrophe during testing, Dorothy flees into the Internet.

    This is a great futuristic story or maybe not that far away, it has lots of things to think about and "Dorothy" well you will just have to read the book or listen to the audiobook. The narrator does a fantastic job pausing to make you think, it was an awesome book.

    Only minutes after Abbie Elliot and her three best friends step off of a private helicopter, they enter the most luxurious, sumptuous, sensually pampering hotel they have ever been to. Their lavish presidential suite overlooks Monte Carlo, and they surrender: to the sun and pool, to the sashimi and sake, to the Bruno Paillard champagne. For four days they're free to live someone else's life. But In the morning's harsh light, Abbie awakens on a yacht, surrounded by police....
