    An enigmatic young man employed as a trash-out worker in Florida, obsessively photographing thousands of abandoned objects left behind by the evicted families. A group of young people squatting in an apartment in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. The Hospital for Broken Things, which specializes in repairing the artifacts of a vanished world. A celebrated actress preparing to return to Broadway. These are just some of the elements Auster magically weaves together in this immensely moving novel.

    "No happy ending but good book"
    Overall

    Great author and even better as a Narrator. However i am want my fiction to end happy. I know that it doesn't happen in the real world but i live in the real world where bad things happen to good people all the time. My books are meant to help me escape all the injustices of the the world.

    Arianna "Ari" Williams thought she experienced the depths of true love until the man of her dreams dismissed her with no explanation. Heartbroken and humiliated, she found herself changing the course of her life and picking up the pieces of her shattered heart. Now, four years later, she has a successful career, amazing friends, and a young son with crystal-blue eyes that remind her every day of the love she imagined. Emotionally she has moved on, but the wounds never healed.

    This story is sweet even though the couple has hardship either the author or narrator rush/gloss over the pain, which makes the book less than it's potential.

    After moving to Austin following six months of unemployment back home, Iris Taylor knows she should be glad to have landed a job so quickly... even if the business is owned by a member of the same motorcycle club her estranged father used to belong to. Except Dex Locke might just be the biggest jerk she's ever met. He's rude and impatient, and he doesn't know how to tell time. And the last thing they ever expected was each other.

    I enjoyed the story especially how loving her biker brother was without all the hollywood fanatical devotion, it's a realistic relationship that u can relate to. The romance took time to develop n it made the story more enable.

    The first novel of Kage Baker’s critically acclaimed, much-loved series, the Company, introduces us to a world where the future of commerce is the past. In the 24th century, the Company preserves works of art and extinct forms of life (for profit of course). It recruits orphans from the past, renders them all but immortal, and trains them to serve the Company, Dr. Zeus, Inc. One of these is Mendoza, the botanist. She is sent to Elizabethan England to collect samples from the garden of Sir Walter Iden.

    Story

    In the search for another outlander by Diane Gabaldon i came across this book. The author takes you to another world where life is cheap and mercy is rear. the story is interesting and since i love history i was entertained, and finished the book. The issues i have with the book are more to do my personal preference.
    I'm not a fun of old English therefore i didn't enjoy the book. Not to crazy about the writing style it takes away from the flow of the story (the author uses a narrator to tell the story as if she is speaking to the reader).

    To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all. He and the Anti-Terrorist Task Force must stop "The Lion," an alleged Libyan terrorist with the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey.

    DeMille, genius is wit and easy going way he makes you fall in love with a book about war. Scott Brick is the master.

    Dean Robillard is the Chicago Stars' hotshot quarterback. Not only does he have lightening reflexes on the field, he is also utterly gorgeous. First seen in the critically acclaimed Match Me If You Can, Dean is trying to recover (both mentally and physically) from a shoulder injury by taking a road trip. Along the way he meets Blue, a beautiful woman down on her luck, and as they spend more time together their attraction grows.

    MSEreads says: "Another CHARMER from SEP!"

    Without SEP my life would be so boring, her sense of humor so refreshing and best of all you always learn something from her books. I love the Chicago stars series. To bad Anna Fields is no longer with us she was a great narrator.

    Listeners looking for a fresh twist on vampire tales need look no further than the erotically charged Black Dagger Brotherhood series. Mary Luce is dissatisfied with her life and her job. But when she is unwittingly thrust into the vampire dominion, everything changes. Falling under the protection of the Brotherhood's strongest member, Rhage, she soon finds herself drawn to his animalistic urges.

    Bonnie says: "JR Ward Writer of Erotic Horror Fantasy"
    "Nice"
    Overall

    If nice to know that even the beautiful don't find love easily. I love Rage coz on the outside he is God's gift but just like the rest of us it's not easy. Mary is perfect for him.

    "Surprisingly great!"
    Overall

    If you have read the other two books Zee is the bad/scary/sadist of the group.
    But his story tells you why, Zee story is the saddest when I need a good cry I listen to this book. However it is the most rewarding cause you struggle with zee. I was so scared of him b4 I read his story know all I see is "real man". Loved it. Author great, narrator fabulous for this series.

    Butch O'Neal is a fighter by nature. A hard-living ex-homicide cop, he's the only human ever to be allowed in the inner circle of the Black Dagger Brotherhood. And he wants to go even deeper into the vampire world-to engage in the turf war with the lessers. His heart belongs to a female vampire, Marissa, an aristocratic beauty who's way out of his league. And if he can't have her, then at least he can fight side by side with the Brothers.

    Antoinette says: "My Favorite"
    "i love Butch n V"
    Overall

    This book is about character growth. Marissa becomes a woman of substance and the men ........ we should all be so lucky to find someone who loves us enough to want what is best for us. Amazing!
