    I found an envelope in the mail. No return address. My name on the front, my address. Inside was a check, made out to me, in the amount of 10 thousand dollars. Enough to pay the bills and leave me some left over to live on until I found a job. Enough to let me focus on classes. There was no name on the check, just "VRI Inc.", and a post office box address for somewhere in the city. No hint of identity or reason for the check or anything. No mention of repayment, interest, nothing...except a single word, on the notes line: "You." Just those three letters.

    NEW NAME says: "Whew....that was....WOW!"

    Would you listen to Alpha again? Why?

    Yes! I couldn't stop listening... its one of those books which has you from beginning to end and wanting more.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Jasinda never disappoints...Its a different story and might not suit all but for me quite addictive ;)


    What about Summer Roberts and Tyler Donne ’s performance did you like?

    I have listened to Summer before she is a great narrator and as usual did an awesome job with all the characters. I have purchased books because she is the narrator so this was a bonus. This is my first listen to Tyler and there will be more.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!!! I wish that was the case. I will re-listen to ALPHA definitely.

    Thank god we are getting BETA. Thank you Jasinda xxx

    Welcome to the sensual world of This Man...Young interior designer Ava O'Shea has no idea what awaits her at the Manor. A run-of-the-mill consultation with a stodgy country gent seems likely, but what Ava finds instead is Jesse Ward - a devastatingly handsome, utterly confident, pleasure-seeking playboy who knows no boundaries. Ava doesn't want to be attracted to this man, and yet she can't control the overwhelming desire he stirs in her.

    Have you listened to any of Edita Brychta’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have seen her in many television programs. This is my first Audio book with her narration and I thought she was bloody brilliant. "MOUTH" Ava ...hahahah....


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wish I could have but I never would have that sort of time.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read this series 3 times before and have been waiting for a long while for its release down here in Australia. I must have missed it when it was first released and found it by accident so I purchased all 3. Jodie is a great author and hopefully her next series will be just as good if not better!. Jesse will always rate in my top 5. <3 <3 <3

    When spontaneous and carefree meets cautious and responsible, falling in love can get just a little Twisted

    There are two kinds of people in this world: the ones who look first, and the ones who leap. I’ve always been more of a looker. A planner. Cautious. Then I met Drew Evans. He was so persistent. So sure of himself. He made it easy to leap with him.

    Did you think Drew and I were going to ride off into the sunset and live happily ever after? So did I. But life is about choices, and Drew already made his. In fact, he tried to decide for the both of us—but you know that’s not my style. So I came back to Greenville, to spend some time alone . . . sort of.

    Because old habits die hard, and sometimes you have to go back to where you began before you can move ahead again.

    I love this series so much! Please Katy Evans never stop writing! Remy and Brooke are so good together and even when they are apart you still love them. You see them grow and love so intensely. While I was reading I kept thinking saying "I love you" to each other just wasn't enough… They really are each others glue. Remy the protective Lion and Brooke his Lioness. <3 <3 <3 Can't wait for Remy!!!!!

    One night was all it took, and I forgot everything and anything except the sexy fighter in the ring who sets my mind ablaze and my body on fire with wanting. Remington Tate is the strongest, most confusing man I've ever met in my life. He's the star of the dangerous underground fighting circuit, and I'm drawn to him as I've never been drawn to anything in my life. I forget who I am, what I want, with just one look from him. When he's near, I need to remind myself that I am strong - but he is stronger.

    When Kellan’s band gains stardom, Kiera and Kellan’s relationship is put to the ultimate test. Can their love for each other withstand the constant pressure of superstardom? The friendships they’ve formed, the new family they’ve found, and the history they’ve forged will all play a part in helping them navigate the turbulent waters of the band’s exploding popularity. A greedy executive hell-bent on success, a declining pop star looking for an edge, and a media circus that twists lies into truths are just some of the obstacles the lovers will have to overcome if they are going to remain together.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Can't pick one! Sorry! Kellan & Keira rocked! Anna & Griffen... so cool! Denny the most forgiving friend and I can just keep going on - all the cast made this book so appealing to me.


    Which character – as performed by Rebekkah Ross – was your favorite?

    Told you, to many to choose from! I really like her as a narrator <3 though...


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have loved to be able to but unfortunately I could not. I am re-listening as I type. It's that sort of book I'm sure I will re-listen to (this series) over and over.<3 <3 <3


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed Keira and Kellan journey and how they evolved. KK is my Rock God! and on that note maybe SJ Stephens might write Griffin's story or Evans and Jenny's * winking * just a thought <3 <3 <3

    I really like Olivia's style of writing and wouldn't compare this book; just know this series is in my top 10 favourite reads now.


    Have you listened to any of Justine O. Keef’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Justine is awesome! I would listen to anything she narrates. I have only listened to this series with her as the narrator and again EXCELLENT!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Jace finally realises the band are his friends and family! He really is very cute.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish that these books were released in the correct reading order :/ not to worry I will re-listen to this series again and again. Audible more of Olivia's books please !
