    Mitch Kowalski lives out of a suitcase - and he likes it that way. Traveling for work has the added bonus of scaring off women who might try to tie him down. But when he's called home to help with the family lodge, he's intrigued by the new girl in town and her insistence that she doesn't need a man. If there's one thing Mitch can't resist, it's a challenge. Paige Sullivan is finally putting down roots. Determined to stand on her own two feet, she lives by the motto "Men are a luxury, not a necessity". But when Mr. Tall, Dark and Hot pulls up a stool in her diner and offers her six weeks of naughty fun with a built-in expiration date, she's tempted to indulge....

    So far I have loved everything I have found on Audible by Shannon, I'm not sure is it was the narrartor (who is UGH. made me want to plug my ears at times) or if I just never noticed that she writes cheesy mush stuff. I did notice a corney line here and there in here other stories but at the end of this book it just went straight to cheesy. Cringe worthy eye rolling cheesy. I think alot had to do with the narrartor but at the same time she only reads what the author wrote so....
    But over all it was a good book. I found my self laughing from time to time once I was able to adjust to the narrartor ( have I mention I didnt care for her) I am looking forward to more books from this author.

    We are doing AR reading at my school, well this year the teachers and staff are competing to try and encourage the kids to read. I LOVE LOVE to read but was having a hard time finding any Teen/ YA books that I could stand to read/listen to. Well this one had it all. I cant wait for the next book in this series. Only bad things is it left me at a cliff hanger and the wait is going to kill me.

    The life of a paid mercenary makes sense to Special Forces Officer Winslow Grange. The jungles of South America may make his former job as a ranch manager for his friend Jay Pendleton look like a cakewalk, but it’s nothing that the former Green Beret can’t handle. A woman’s heart, however - that’s dangerous territory. Back in Texas, Grange’s biggest problem was avoiding Peg Larson and all the complications being attracted to the daughter of his foreman would entail.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did find myself laughing a few times threw out the book and there is a part they will make you try and tear up.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a sweet story with a little action and a little something something. I wish the rest of the collection of the Long Tall Texan series would come to audible.

    As brutal as the undead he hunted, Zacarias De La Cruz was a master executioner. Now his stark and savage journey has ended. For his brothers, Zacarias had walked to the edge of madness, but with centuries as a killing machine now left to the past and without a hunt to define him, Zacarias wonders, for the first time in his life, who he really is.

    What disappointed you about Dark Predator?

    The narration. I was so excited about them having a male and female person but they totally missed the mark. They should of put them each doing a main character not every other capter. And the man UGH! he needs to slow down and not get so excited he really took away from my listening enjoyment.


    What didn’t you like about Erik Bergmann’s performance?

    I did not care for it. :(


    Any additional comments?

    I think this book would of been alot better if I read it myself which I will do in the near future. Save your money on the audio version and buy the paperback.

    Lainie Capshaw has been servicing injured cowboys long enough to know that a charming Western drawl combined with a fine physical form doesn't mean you should fall for a man. As a sports therapist, she travels the rodeo circuits patching up riders-and fending off their sweet-talking, swaggering advances. So no one is more surprised than Lainie when she finds herself involved with not one, but two men on different circuits....

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

    I cant honestly say that I would.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The background of Mr.Grey was very intresting.


    What three words best describe Becca Battoe’s voice?

    not for this! I started to read this in paperback but then switched to listening, I rather reading it myself.


    Any additional comments?

    While the leading lady was a little head strong she was still lacking in my point of view. This book had great potential to be the greastest book but it did not live up to all the hype for me.

    RITA Award winner Robyn Carr is a New York Times and USA Today best-selling author. In this 19th installment of her Virgin River series, Tom Cavanaugh returns home to take over his family’s apple orchard and settle down. Single mom Nora Crane is nothing like the kind of woman he thought he’d fall for—yet he can’t take his eyes off her. And while they have different concepts about family, they soon find out how quickly those ideas can change.

    What made the experience of listening to Barefoot Season the most enjoyable?

    For once a book that sounded real and did not have any for fetched things.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way Michelle and Carly interacted with each other, there was no hidden meanings always honesty.


    Which character – as performed by Sarah Grace – was your favorite?

    Carly while I loved Michelle too I could identfy more with Carly.


    Any additional comments?

    I bought this book on a spur of the moment chance.....did not really think that I would care for it at all but ended up loving this book. I normally read to escape the real world not deal with real world things but this book was refreshing at a time I needed to take my head out of the clouds.

    Go to school. Get good grades. Stay out of trouble. That’s the mandate for most kids. But Nick Gautier isn’t the average teenager. He’s a boy with a destiny not even he fully understands. And his first mandate is to stay alive while everyone, even his own father, tries to kill him. He’s learned to annihilate zombies and raise the dead, divination and clairvoyance, so why is learning to drive and keep a girlfriend so dang hard?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes and I allready have to many of people. I have even gotten my kids listening to them now and all of their friends.


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

    Yes I have and he is the best at what he does. No one can compare to Holter. So glad to have him back instead of Fred for Sherry's books.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    I know they are making movies out of these books and I hope they name them just the way the book is and dont leave out any of the important stuff like when they made the Twilight series.
