    Owen is the organizer of the Montgomery clan, running the family’s construction business with an iron fist - and an even less flexible spreadsheet. And though his brothers give him grief for his compulsive list making, the Inn BoonsBoro is about to open right on schedule. The only thing Owen didn’t plan for was Avery MacTavish... Avery’s popular pizza place is right across the street from the inn, giving her a firsthand look at its amazing renovation - and a newfound appreciation for Owen.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Boyfriend to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I love hearing the voices which helps me build a better picture of the characters.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Boyfriend?

    The CVS shopping trip was priceless!


    What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

    I really liked that I didn't really notice that a man was doing the performance. Some men get funny about reading the love scenes but MacLeod Andrew;s read them with poise and grace.


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

    It was a fun book. I laughed and felt happy throughout most of the book!


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the first book in the series very much. Yet, this one was even better!

Six months later, the dedicated arson investigator is coming face-to-face with him again. Gorgeous, grinning Logan Cain. Her biggest mistake.

    Story

    I have mixed feelings about this book. I was supremely annoyed by the first 2 1/2 hours as the heroine consistently (and repetitively) questioned her belief in the hero due to her attraction to him. Once she came to the conclusion that he was trust worthy, albeit a strange revelation without a believable cause, the book finally started to get interesting.

    As the book progressed, it moved from steamy to action packed and back over and over again. The story happens over a weekend so the timeline felt extremely unbelievable.

    Is it worth the time and credit? I'd give this a hesitant yes. If you like other books by Bella Andre, then this is another good addition to your library. For me however, it's not on my list to re-listening to it. When I'm not reading a sci-fi or paranormal book, I like realistic and this story wasn't believable enough for me.

    On Manhattan’s Upper East Side, a woman lies dead at the bottom of a brownstone’s basement steps, stripped of all her valuables. Most cops might call it a mugging gone wrong, but Lieutenant Eve Dallas knows better. A well-off accountant and a beloved wife and mother, Marta Dickenson doesn’t seem the type to be on anyone’s hit list. But when Eve and her partner, Peabody, find blood inside the brownstone, she knows Marta’s murder is the work of a killer who’s trained, yet not professional or smart enough to remove all the evidence.

    Story

    These books are written so that there is very little time that passes from one book to the next, so it was a relief that this story was a little less high profile and time sensitive. The last 10 books or so have had the girls going from one major case to the next and I was starting to feel like it was no longer believable (or as believable as a futuristic book can be). No real cop goes from one major case to the next, to the next and so on. So a back to reality book was much needed.

    The last look was my favorite, and this one is a close second. It's worth the credit and the time!

    Dr. Melanie Lipton is no stranger to the supernatural. She knows immortals better than they know themselves, right down to their stubborn little genes. So although a handsome rogue immortal seems suspicious to her colleagues, Sebastien Newcombe intrigues Melanie. His history is checkered, his scars are impressive, and his ideas are daring. But it's not his ideas that have Melanie fighting off surges of desire.... Bastien is used to being the bad guy. In fact, he can't remember the last time he had an ally he could trust. But Melanie is different....

    Story

    I would absolutely recommend this book for those who like a fast paced, action packed, love story with a twist in the paranormal. This book hit all the things I look for in a great novel. Mystery, love, passion, humor, great characters, fast pace, and a story that keeps you up at night wanting to know more.

    I love hearing all of the accents of the different characters from around the world. She really does a great job! Even the men's voices are believable and the women's voices are distinct yet realistic.

    There were a large number of laughing outbursts and a couple of slightly tear jerking moments. Overall, this book was a pleasure to listen to!

    I strongly recommend starting with the first book in the series if you haven't started reading them yet. The first book could stand alone but after that the story builds strongly on the story line of the previous book.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

    If you could sum up A Discovery of Witches in three words, what would they be?

    Sweet Fun Romance


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Discovery of Witches?

    There are so many, but love the side story about going to the yoga class.


    What does Jennifer Ikeda bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The wonderful accents!


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

    Even the supernatural have to fight for equality.


    Any additional comments?

    I wasn't sure what to expect as the reviews were all over the board. I really liked this story as there was an element of romance, challenging family relationships (which may remind you of your own families), and a hint of mystery. All elements I enjoy when listening to a good book.
