I haven't "read" a book since 1998, just not interested....after the 50 Shades Trilogy, I have become an audio book addict! I am a very tough critic.

    With The Look of Love, best-selling author Bella Andre introduces you to a fun and emotional contemporary romance series about the Sullivan family. Because when a Sullivan bad boy falls... he falls hard. And it's forever. Chloe Peterson is having a bad night. A really bad night. The large bruise on her cheek can attest to that. And when her car skids off the side of a wet country road straight into a ditch, she's convinced even the gorgeous guy who rescues her must be too good to be true. Or is he?

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Look of Love to be better than the print version?

    I loved this so much that I had to continue reading the series. I can't wait for the 3rd book to come out so I can find out what happens! The narration was great and spot on!

    The Virgin River series never disappoints and Plummer is an awesome narrator. You can tell which character is speaking, with tons of characters from the previous books making cameos, it is simply amazing the variety in her voice. Totally worth the credit!

    Eclipse Bay has grown and flourished on the rugged Oregon coast, where the shore can be rocky and forbidding, full of sharp cliffs and hidden coves. But this small town is also filled with secrets as treacherous as the landscape - and rivalries as fierce as an ocean storm.... Their grandfathers hated each other. Their fathers hated each other.And as the next generation of Hartes and Madisons, Hannah and Rafe are expected to hate each other too. But Hannah Harte - a successful wedding consultant with a skeptical view of marriage - remembers the long-ago night on the beach....

    Story

    The story moved along pretty slow at first, thankfully it picked up the pace as I almost lost interest. Although many don't care for Joyce Bean's narration, I like her a lot and have listened to many of the books she has narrated. She's easily distinguished between the characters which makes it easy imagine and follow along.

    In Working It, New York Times best-selling author Kendall Ryan delivered a sexy and addictive contemporary romance about Emmy Clarke, a sweet southern girl out of her depth in New York City’s cutthroat fashion industry, and Ben Shaw, the hot male model who introduced her to a world of pleasure. But their story is far from complete.…

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I got so annoyed with her mind, if that makes sense. Having a little hesitation is one thing, but honestly, the things that she got mad at him for, were NOT his fault! I mean seriously, how old are these characters supposed to be again??


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    She wouldn't have been so apprehensive and childish.


    What about Shayna Thibodeaux and Jason Carpenter ’s performance did you like?

    They did a wonderful job, as always. I purchased this book because they had teamed up to narrate it. Every other book they have done together I have enjoyed!


    Was Craving Him worth the listening time?

    Sure, it got me through the long ride to work.

Nestled amongst California's giant redwoods, quaint Virgin River is host to many quirky characters - including bar owner Jack Sheridan, who may be just the man to make Melinda smile again.

    Where does Virgin River rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have read books 1-6 so far and I greatly enjoy them more and more. I love escaping to Virgin River and listening to the trials and tribulations of their everyday life and the troubles that come to them. Each book seems to introduce new characters, while still keeping in touch with the old one that I have grown to love. I highly recommend this series to everyone!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Virgin River?

    When Mel first arrived at the cabin in Virgin River. Laugh out Loud Funny!


    What about Therese Plummer’s performance did you like?

    Her performance is outstanding! The way she makes the difference voices for each character, and the banter between them, sometimes make me laugh out loud, it's like I am sitting right there watching the characters talk to each other!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Mel was on her bed apologizing to her husband. So heart warming.
