Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!

    I had everything a woman could want... My husband, James. The house on the lake. My life. Our perfect life. And then Alex came to visit. The first time I saw my husband's best friend, I didn't like him. Didn't like how James changed when he was around, didn't like how his penetrating eyes followed me everywhere.

    What did you love best about Tempted?

    I actually liked the friendship between James and Alex.


    What other book might you compare Tempted to and why?

    It's a love story between three....one too many. I don't know who should have left because after the sex they were all pretty miserable.


    Did Zoe Winslow do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I thought this narration was flat with lack of emotion...her sexy Alex voice was not very appealing.


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

    One too many?


    Any additional comments?

    This is not a bad story, it's just depressing, everyone loses in the end.

    Gideon calls me his angel, but he's the miracle in my life. My gorgeous, wounded warrior, so determined to slay my demons while refusing to face his own. The vows we'd exchanged should have bound us tighter than blood and flesh. Instead they opened old wounds, exposed pain and insecurities, and lured bitter enemies out of the shadows. I felt him slipping from my grasp, my greatest fears becoming my reality, my love tested in ways I wasn't sure I was strong enough to bear.

    The story continues...If you liked 1,2 and 3 of Ava and Gideon's story, you will definitely like this chapter! The hot sex continues quite frequently as they navigate their life together. I enjoyed this listen, Jill Redfield does a wonderful job all by herself but the added male narrator does a fine Gideon! Can't wait for the 2nd wedding...yes it is not over yet!

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Harlan Coben set huge sales records with last year’s Six Years - and he’s poised to do it again in his next breathtaking stand-alone thriller. Harlan Coben, author of six consecutive instant number-one New York Times best sellers and a total of 24 award-winning, best-selling, and internationally acclaimed novels, returns with another ripped-from-real-life thriller full of impossibly high emotional stakes and the real-to-life characters for which he has become famous.

    Great, suspenseful story that kept you wondering until the very end and then there was the 2 minute conclusion, it just seemed too easy. I liked the story it just could have ended better. The narrator was very good, I enjoyed listening to her.

    Elaina Morrison has loved Neil McManus her whole life. She doesn't remember a time when she didn't love him. Through heartbreaking tragedy and years of separation, her love holds true... until life stomps all over her heart, shattering her perfect dream, teaching her how hard it is to let go. Real life doesn't have anything on romantic dreams though, as these two have learned over and over again. It sucks big time, leaving painful scars in its wake.

    Story

    This listen was just okay for me, it sort of skimmed along with no real depth into the characters and their story like Ethan and Brynn. I was ok with the male narrator but the female narrator was painful to listen to. I felt like this story was kind of an aside and quickly written to get it out while the Blackstone Trilogy was still hot. This story probably could have been good with a little more time and depth put into it.

    After a lifetime of uncertainty, Raine Winston shouldn’t be fazed by anything anymore. But she’s terrified. Terrified that her wayward sister, Claire, has gotten into debt dangerously over her head. Terrified that a muscle-clad biker named Diego doesn’t want payment with money - he wants much more. And terrified of the dizzying desire she feels whenever Diego touches her.…

    I believe this is more of an introduction to all the characters to come than a story or romance although there are some of both. Jill Redfield made me really love this listen because of her narration, otherwise it would have been just ordinary. I still haven't found an MC series to beat the Undeniable series but this one tries!

    Despite their rowdy hookups, Harlow and Finn don’t even like each other.... which would explain why their marriage lasted only 12 hours. He needs to be in charge and takes whatever he wants. She lives by the Want-something-done? Do-it-yourself mantra. Maybe she’s too similar to the rugged fisherman - or just what he needs.

    Our wedding was everything I dreamed of, and now the honeymoon is a living fantasy. To be Mrs. Damien Stark is the ultimate rush - to know that our claim to each other is real, our fierce passion sealing our bond. My kiss is forever his, his touch is forever mine. We both harbor deep scars from our pasts, and we’ve done everything we can to lay our ghosts to rest. But there are still dreams that haunt me, and people that threaten to tear us apart.

    Hidden Gem buy, good price but not a gem. It was just ok for me. Nothing that will keep me thinking about the story for days. The narrator was ok, just so soft-spoken, he didn't live up to the main character's cop persona. This is #3 in the Sean O'Brien series, I have no desire to continue.

    The biker gangs passing through Lobo Norte don’t scare Ofelia anymore. All those men are the same: scarred, homeless, and broken…just like Ofelia. They’ve become a blur of forgettable faces watching her strip. She takes off her clothes, takes their money, and wipes them from her memory instantly. But Trouble is different. A biker with a wolf tattoo and tortured eyes, he sees beyond Ofelia’s tough disguise to a more fragile woman within.
