I am a busy sports mom listening to romance only. If the narrator is good and it has a decent plot, I will find it enjoyable.

    As their careers catch fire, Grace and Jack - everyone’s favorite couple - find themselves on opposite coasts. Grace has landed in New York City, where she loves being onstage again, playing a fabulous character in a musical written by her old college flame, Michael. Their rekindled friendship makes exploring the city that much more fun. And it is just friendship, right?

    What did you love best about The Redhead Revealed?

    Grace. She is truly, absolutely a nut. I can't imagine anyone not liking this girl. She is just like a lot of women. We believe some things are just too good to be true. Especially when it comes to love.


    What other book might you compare The Redhead Revealed to and why?

    The first book, The Unidentified Redhead and Wallbanger. The same sharp wit and the comedy is great.


    Which character – as performed by Keili Lefkovitz – was your favorite?

    Grace without a doubt. I which The Brit was in a Brit voice.


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

    Yes, I was all in on this book. I saw the train wreck before it happened and I'm sure most people will. I was so hurt for Grace and mad at the same time because of Jack. I felt Jack's pain when he was speaking to Grace about their relationship.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great read. The comedy is good and the relationship with Grace and Holly is one most women have with a great girlfriend. I will listen to this one multiple times.

    Playing house was never so much fun - or so confusing. With her boss on an extended honeymoon, Caroline’s working crazy-long hours to keep the interior design company running - especially since she’s also the lead designer for the renovation of a gorgeous old hotel. And with Simon, her hotshot photographer boyfriend, gallivanting all over the world for his job, the couple is heavy-duty into "absence makes the heart grow fonder" mode. No complaints about the great reunion sex, though!

    What made the experience of listening to Rusty Nailed the most enjoyable?

    To see the progression of Simone and Caroline's relationship. She didn't become someone different because she was in a relationship with Simon.


    What other book might you compare Rusty Nailed to and why?

    None


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

    She did a great job.


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

    Yes. Clive!!!

    I have listened to The Red Head series by Alice Clayton and now Wallbanger series. I am in love with this book. It's real, mature, funny, and honest. More than worth the credit.

    Drew Evans is handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed? He’ll tell you he has the flu. But we all know that’s not really true. Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful and ambitious. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin.

    Would you listen to Tangled again? Why?

    Yes because I enjoyed the male POV and the back and forth.


    What other book might you compare Tangled to and why?

    Some people compared to to Wallbanger, but I don't agree. Maybe slightly, but not as entertaining.


    Which character – as performed by Sebastian York – was your favorite?

    Dre's neice. I don't like most narrators attempt at a female adult or child voice but this narrator did well.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyable. I always listen at least 2 times and I am in the middle of the second listen. It's a good book, stand alone, but I am not sure if a series is necessary.

    James and Bianca's story draws to a close in the explosive conclusion to the Up In The Air Trilogy. After a short but earnest courtship, Bianca can no longer deny her feelings for James, and though she's tried her hardest, she can't help but see that he cares deeply for her, as well. In a completely uncharacteristic move, she has put aside her misgivings and agreed to live with the enigmatic billionaire. Is her leap of faith the beginning of something wonderful, or is it too much, too fast?

    I looked forward to this book for some time. Book 2 was great and I wanted everything tied up. This book answered all of my questions, but was a little too long. I found myself getting side tracked and not caring enough to rewind. I get the BDSM stuff, but it was too much for my taste. If about 5 of those scenes were cut out, it would have been much better. Was it still worth my credit? Absolutely. I love the characters and I wanted the happy ending for James and Bianca and I got it.

    Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly?

    I generally listen to romance, but I had to read this for my book club. It has been a great change. At times, Jake seemed weak to me, but the overall story was really good. I liked the overall ending but felt like it could have been stronger. The judge had a lot of power and at times. I thought this book was from 1968 instead of 1988. I guess 30 years in MS time doesn't mean much. As a southern, I hope we aren't so slow to change.

    Ethan Blackstone has a problem on his hands. He’s broken Brynne's trust, and she’s left him. He's unwilling to live without her and isn’t giving up - he's dead-set on getting his beautiful American girl back. Here is the fiery story of what happens when two people surrender to a love so great it can heal the scars of the past and give way to a life of pure, rapturous ecstasy.

    He's infuriating, nauseatingly addictive and she just can't seem to shake him. He's only been in town a short while and his name is already on everyone's lips. He's the kind of guy moms' warn their daughters about - the kind that leaves a trail of shattered hearts behind him and he has Olivia in his sights. Olivia has never met anyone as confusing as Seth and his hot and cold attitude constantly sends her reeling. She's never wanted anyone's touch so badly in her life, but having recently come out of a long term relationship diving into another is something she'd prefer to avoid.

She's already learned about loving a celebrity the hard way and isn't signing up for another lesson. Every time Sam gives Leo attitude, he wants to knock that chip off her fragile little shoulder. What the hell did he ever do to her, anyway? He's not used to women treating him like he's poisonous, and he isn't about to let her run away every time he gets close. He's had enough of people running away to last him a lifetime...when this one runs, he gives chase.

    Jules Montgomery is too busy and content with her life to worry about a man, especially one Nate McKenna. If growing up with four brothers has taught her anything, she knows to stay away from sexy men with tattoos and motorcycles. That goes double if he's your boss. During the one incredible night they shared, he violated the no fraternization policy...among other things, and it won't happen again. Jules won't risk her career for mind-blowing sex, no matter how much her body and her damn heart keep arguing with her.

    This book is really hot. It's not very realistic, but I don't listen to romance for that reason. I like a steamy story and this one delivers. I will continue we the series. I enjoy the relationship between Julianne and Natalie. They are honest and both are strong. Definitely worth the credit.
