    Writer Cari North thought she knew all there was to know about plot twists—until she stumbled across her ex-fiancé, Lance Morgan, digging a shallow grave in the Louisiana woods. After one horrifying moment of shared recognition, Cari knew her life hinged upon whether she could outrun Lance and the hurricane-spawned tornado that was barreling down on their heels.

    "extremely predictable"
    Overall

    too predictable. Plus, talk about a damsel in distress, sheesh. Most of Sharon Sala's women characters are the same, not to mention EXTREMELY similar story lines. How many of her women need to get injured and spend half the book in the hospital with a doting man to save her??

    Story

    Basically this book is about a 30-something wannabe actress who lives with her friend. She meets a young sexy 'British' actor and the two of them go on a jaunty sexual escapade which involves no ACTUAL sex for a long time.
    The narrator uses the same voice for all of the characters, doesn't even ATTEMPT a British accent for the character who is shoved down our throats as being sexy simply for the fact that he IS BRITISH.
    I enjoyed it enough at first to get into it, decided to finish it, and then WHAM it was over. I actually checked my library for the next part, as I was extremely confused about how it could end so abruptly. There was no wrap up, no finish, no nothing. Just cut off. Very bizarre.
    I see now that there is a 2nd book coming, which I assume will wrap this up.
    Basically, I wouldn't waste a credit on this. It's uncomfortable, horrible narration, and a poorly unsatisfying ending.
    Stick with Wallbanger. It's a great read.

    For 36 years, Marcus Sullivan has been the responsible older brother, stepping in to take care of his seven siblings after their father died when they were children. But when the perfectly ordered future he's planned for himself turns out to be nothing but a lie, Marcus needs one reckless night to shake free from it all. Nicola Harding is known throughout the world by only one name - Nico - for her catchy, sensual pop songs. Only what no one knows about the 25-year-old singer is that her sex-kitten image is totally false.

    I made the mistake of downloading the first 2 books in this series at the same time, rather than listening to the 1st one and then NOT getting the second one. I got about 3/4 of the way through the first one, and had to stop. So then I tried the second one thinking it would be different-- it's not. I like a little steamy romance too, but sheesh this is practically porn. Plus there is ZERO storyline. She meets the guy and is all of a sudden trembling with need. Puhh-leeease.

One thing stands in her way: Nick Farrell, a notorious corporate raider with way too much sex appeal and no patience for trespassers on his land. After an explosive introduction, Carter abandons the project... but with Nick in hot pursuit.

    Honestly, I just couldn't get into this book. I started it and got about 1 1/2 hours into it and just had to quit. The leading man was SUCH a jerk, I just couldn't bear to let her fall in love with him. The author made the woman out to be a frumpy loser, and the man to be an uptight jerk. It just had no appeal to me.

    If I could have given this 0 stars, I would have. It is absolutely appalling. The reader has a lisp, and it's the worst story I've ever read, hands down.

    Wedding bells are ringing in Fool’s Gold, but not for Nevada Hendrix. Her triplet sisters are engaged, and even her mother has a more active love life than she does. Determined to make a fresh start, she applies for her dream job, only to discover that her new boss is her first love. Maybe she could overlook the fact that they’ve seen each other naked, but she’ll never forget the way he broke her heart. Tucker Janack agrees to Nevada’s “business only” ground rules. After all, love is a trap that the construction millionaire has avoided his whole life.

    It was okay...except for this "Cat" character. I mean, what the heck? Who acts like that? I think that part ruined it for me. I did "lol" a couple of times though... it kept me entertained.
    Narration was pretty good too.

    With her long ponytail and sparkling green eyes, Tessa Donovan looks more like the girl next door than a businesswoman - or a heartbreaker. Which may explain why Detective Luke Asher barely notices her when he arrives to investigate a break-in at her family’s brewery. He’s got his own problems - starting with the fact that his partner, Simone, is pregnant and everyone thinks he’s the father.

    This was a pretty good book... I would probably read others by this author, but it wasn't fantastic. Don't expect to gain anything from it, it's just a brainless read...which isn't always a bad thing!
    The narrator was PERFECT for the story though.

But his isolation is shattered when he stumbles upon a small girl unconscious in the high-altitude forest. When strangers pursue Ramsey to his private meadow in an attempt to kill him and the girl, he's mystified that anyone would wish her harm.

    Couldn't finish this one. I got about 3/4 of the way through it and just couldn't bear it. The language is strange and unrealistic. People don't actually say things like "I quite enjoyed that" after they have sex. It seemed odd.
