Now, on the knife-edge between civic duty and blind retribution, he atones for the sins of his father - while fighting his inner demons. Assigned to monitor Veck is Internal Affairs officer Sophia Reilly, whose interest in him is both professional and arousingly personal.

When Veck and Sophia are drawn into the ultimate battle, their fallen angel savior is the only one standing between them and eternal damnation....

    91 year-old Ira Levinson is kept concious after a car wreck by visions of his late wife, Ruth, who recounts stories of their lifetime together. A few miles away, at a local rodeo, Sophia Danko, a senior at Wake Forest, meets a young cowboy named Luke. Ira and Ruth. Sophia and Luke. Two couples who have little in common. Yet their lives will converge with unexpected poignancy, reminding us all that even the most difficult decisions can yield extraordinary journeys: beyond despair, beyond death, to the farthest reaches of the human heart.

    The sequel you’ve been waiting for: the follow-up to the sensational number-one best seller The Devil Wears Prada. Andrea "Andy" Sachs is on top of the world, running her own very successful high-fashion bridal magazine. But she got there with the help of her rolodex - actually, the rolodex of Miranda Priestly, her former nightmare of a boss. As Andy's success grows, she realizes she'll soon have to face Miranda. Still, Andy can hardly anticipate the horrifying reality that’s approaching - a reversal so profound that she will be squarely in Miranda’s crosshairs once more.

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    I enjoyed the story very much; however, the narrator was awful. She talked in very hushed almost whispering/mumbling….it was not good at all. Every character sounded depressed even at times when it wasn’t appropriate. This may be a book that I buy in hardcover and read myself.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. The story was very predictable. Once you have read the publisher’s summary, then you have read the entire book.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    No.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Madison Vaughn?

    No.


    Was A Little Dare worth the listening time?

    Very breathy...too many pauses... irritating.

But can she trust him enough to let herself succumb to all the pleasures that midnight allows?

    What disappointed you about Midnight Pleasures with a Scoundrel?

    I couldn't make past the first hour.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Not this author.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Nothing.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Midnight Pleasures with a Scoundrel?

    The author?


    Any additional comments?

    The bad review may just be because this isn't what I was expecting. I didn't get past the first hour. It was a huge waste of money.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    .... be a different book?


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    ANYTHING else!!!!!!!


    What didn???t you like about Becca Battoe???s performance?

    She was dull and childlike.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. There was so much hype about this one and I cannot figure out why. If I had actually read the book, I still would not like it. The repetitiveness of several different words or phrases was soooooooo annoying. In fact, I wish I had the book so I could count how many times ???Oh my??? (and other phrases) were repeated???.. just for fun, as THAT would be way more enjoying than actually reading the book.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was just awful. I do not understand the fuss about this one. If you want erotica, buy erotica. This was juvenile and if I hear ???Oh my??? ever again, I???m likely to play in traffic. I did finish listening because I bought it???and had small hopes it would get better. It didn???t. I feel like I was involved in BDSM just by listing to this. Grey probably has an audio set up in his red room with this book on it. I would rather be spanked, caned, whipped or whatever than to ever suffer this book again! Skip this one folks???.many hours you will never get back.

    After a decade spent in isolation in the Ugandan jungles thinking about stuff, David Cross has written his first book. Known for roles on the small screen such as "never-nude" Tobias Funke on Arrested Development and the role of "David" in Mr. Show with Bob And David, as well as a hugely successful stand-up routine full of sharp-tongued rants and rages, Cross has carved out his place in American comedy.

    Nikki says: "Hilarious but a little preachy"
    "I did not like"
    Overall

    I bought this book because I bought a Chelsea Handler book and this book was under the ???If you like Chelsea Handler you may also like???..??? Well, I didn???t like it??? too serious for me. Yes, the attempt at humor was good, but for me, when I listen to a comedy audiobook, it???s usually to get away from the real world and politics and this guy kind of just throws them in your face. But, to be fair, I only listened to about 30 minutes before I couldn???t listen any longer. Also to be fair, I had no idea who this guy was so his is probably in his genre and if he is someone you have liked in the past, you may like this.
