    For makeup artist Grace Barrett, Hollywood isn't the land of golden opportunity. It's the land of difficult divas, cheating boyfriends and unemployment. So when her great-aunt offers her a free place to stay in Jackson Hole, Grace thinks she'll spend a little time in the sticks to figure out her life, and then move somewhere exciting to live out her dreams. But it turns out that there are a few more thrills in this small town than Grace was expecting….

    Would you try another book from Victoria Dahl and/or Genvieve Bevier?

    Absolutely by the author, not so sure about the narrator


    If you’ve listened to books by Victoria Dahl before, how does this one compare?

    Not nearly as good as her other series.


    What didn’t you like about Genvieve Bevier’s performance?

    Male voices were not quite believable.


    Did Close Enough to Touch inspire you to do anything?

    Not really. I was really looking forward to another Victoria
    Dahl romance. I thought there were lots of loose endings and didn't like that Cole and Grace didn't really express their feelings for each other. That aside the sex scenes were hot. Dahl always delivers on that note.

    Shane MacKade enjoyed everything about women - the look of them, the smell of them, the taste of them. So the last thing he expected was to become a one-woman man. And even more surprising is that it's the Ph.D.-toting academic Rebecca McKnight who has him headed for a fall. Could Shane's days as a bachelor be coming to an end?

    I have enjoyed all the Mackade Brothers books and Luke Daniels narration except for the female lead in this one. She sound infantile. When he read Rebecca I was cringing as I listened. Love those sexy brothers though.

    After a humiliating end to her engagement, investment banker Sidney Sinclair is done with commitment-phobic men. But when her sister winds up engaged after a whirlwind courtship, Sidney is thrown into close contact with exactly the kind of sexy playboy she wants to avoid - the gorgeous best man. She's stuck with him, for better or worse, until her sister walks down the aisle, but that doesn't mean she has to give in to his smooth advances, no matter how tempting they are.... Special agent Vaughn Roberts always gets his man on the job and his woman in bed.

    Jared MacKade believes in taking a stand, and he never turns his back on a fight. So when his work as an attorney brings him up against Savannah Morningstar, her rude behavior and strong defenses aren't nearly enough to scare him off - quite the opposite. Thoughts of the outrageously direct and sinfully sexy woman keep Jared coming back for more. And the more he gets to know her, the more determined he is to stand by her always.

    I loved the first book and the narrator. But on this book his female southern accent really spoiled it for me. I jumped ahead because of this. As always Nora writes a warm, beautiful love story but this was not one of her best.

    Ten years after disappearing from Antietam, Maryland, the bad boy has come home. Cleaned up and successful now - though still dangerously good-looking - Rafe MacKade sets the town on fire…and tongues wagging. Not even lovely newcomer Regan Bishop is immune to his charms. Though Regan claims to not want to get involved with a rebel, Rafe's pretty sure that her reaction to their sizzling kisses suggests otherwise.

    I love all Nora Roberts and J.D. Robb stories. I really had a hard time getting through this one. The narrator was just awful. Too long pauses and bad sentence breaks. If it wasn't Nora I wouldn't have finished listening.

    After dropping out of pastry school and messing up her big break on a reality cooking show, Leah Sullivan needs to accomplish something in her life. But when she returns home to Lucky Harbor, she finds herself distracted by her best friend, Jack Harper. In an effort to cheer up Jack's ailing mother, Dee, Leah tells a little fib - that she and Jack are more than just friends. Soon pretending to be hot-and-heavy with this hunky firefighter feels too real to handle…No-strings attachments suit Jack just fine - perfect for keeping the risk of heartbreak away.

    Dallas cop Gray Montgomery is on a mission: find the guy who killed his partner and bring him to justice. So far, he's found a link between the killer and Faith - and if Gray has to get close to her to catch the killer, so be it. Faith is sweet and feminine, everything Gray wants and desires in a woman, but he suspects she's playing games. No way would she allow a man to call the shots in their relationship. Or would she? Faith sees in Gray the strong, dominant man she needs, but he seems determined to keep her at a distance.
