    Would you listen to Predatory again? Why?

    One story yes, In Darkness, By Dianne Duvall

    I was not familiar with three of the Author's in this book, I felt a bit lost in them at times not having read the other books in their series.so from what I could tell the stories were well written and for the most part I enjoyed their stories. However, "Still Darkness" by Dianne Duvall The story of the immortal Richart d'Alençon was excellent and very much up to the usual Immortal Guardian books that Ms Duvall writes. I was worried that being a short story and not a full book that Richart might be cheated out of what he could be in a full story. I think those worries were not seen. Richart's short story was full from the beginning to the end and she did a wonderful job in letting us see the completely great love story of Richart and Jenna and I applaud her for that.

    If I have any complaint it is with the narrator Arika Rapson. I wanted to like her reading however, I couldn't help but dislike how absolutely horrible Arika Rapson was at accents, which kept pulling me out of the story! I think someone who was able to actually do a good accent to read the stories.would have been so much better!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Predatory?

    In Darkness by Dianne Duvall


    What aspect of Arika Rapson’s performance would you have changed?

    Anything that has to do with accents! She definitely needs to have some sort of training in that area!


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

    No way could you make a story on the entire book you would have to pick one of the stories.

    Travis Walker, the oldest of the seven Walker brothers, has been referred to as moody and mysterious, and for the most part, he would agree. Until recently he spent his days helping his brothers run the family business. Now he dedicates his time and energy to building a resort, Alluring Indulgence, that caters to fetishes and fantasies. And despite his attempt to work himself into the ground, Travis has never denied - at least not to himself - that something is missing.

    What made the experience of listening to Travis the most enjoyable?

    When listening the characters seemed to jump off the page and come to life!


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    The voices matched how I thought the characters would sound! I had read the book prior to listening to this book! Once I re-read/listened it brought the characters more alive!

    How long did it take you to find your place in the world? For Ethan Walker, going through the motions of life, keeping his distance, and never getting attached has become the mantra he lives by. Success is measured by how many hours he can work and how little attention he can draw - that was, until he landed on Beau Bennett's radar. Until Beau, Ethan had never met a man who could get him to question his own logic and even consider taking a different path.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely!! Well written and so emotionally charged it grabs you from the very first page to the last!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ethan?

    When Ethan realized he loved Beau, then when he finally spoke to his family telling them he was gay!


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

    It helps bring Ethan and Beau to life more than the author already does!


    Who was the most memorable character of Ethan and why?

    Beau because he never, ever gave up on Ethan!

    Braydon Walker has always shared everything with his identical twin brother Brendon - hopes, dreams, career choices, and yes, even women. Known for tag-teaming their love interests in every way imaginable, Braydon is surprised and unnerved when he finds himself wanting to keep their newest lover all to himself. Will the twins' relationship evolve to fit this new mold, or will Braydon's desire for independence tear them apart?

    What did you love best about Braydon?

    I loved the way she interweaved all of the Walker brothers I have come to love into this story about Braydon and his twin!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Braydon?

    When Braydon realized HE was the reason for Brendon's being unable to deal with how they were growing apart and how he needed to try to fix things!


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Okay now HERE is where this book fell short of ALL of the other Books in this series! I happen to love listening when I'm driving in my car or doing other things, then reading when I can just sit and read! However, the person who was narrating for Brendon was just BAD. So bad in fact, that every time he would start reading it would take me completely out of the story, which was a first for one of Nicole Edwards books. The female narrating for Jessie and the male narrating for Braydon were fantastic, I'd like to state that fact!! It got so annoying when the narrator read for Brendon I finally STOPPED listening and read the rest of the book to completion, after about half way through, because I didn't want to be pulled out of the story any more!


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

    Too many to count! LOL I would recommend this book and all of the books in this series! If you haven't read any of the books from this series, do yourself a favor and read them all!!

    Qhuinn, son of no one, is used to being on his own. Disavowed from his bloodline, shunned by the aristocracy, he has finally found an identity as one of the most brutal fighters in the war against the Lessening Society. But his life is not complete. Even as the prospect of having a family of his own seems to be within reach, he is empty on the inside, his heart given to another....

    If you could sum up Lover at Last in three words, what would they be?

    Good But Disappointing


    Would you be willing to try another book from J. R. Ward? Why or why not?

    Yes, I would try another book. The series is good but the last few books have not been as good as the beginning books in this series. The Warden seems to be lacking something in this book, in that it seems she gave in to popular demand of putting the two leading characters together. While I completely believe that Blay is in love with Qhuinn at no point do I believe that Qhuinn has the same undying love for Blay. A fling, a phase, perhaps a deep friendship that he is confused about but never the love The Warden writes about. The new characters she brings in on this book are interesting and I can see where it will lead to some interesting situations.


    Which character – as performed by Jim Frangione – was your favorite?

    Wrath and Vishous


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

    Read the first books so you won't dislike the series

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would recommend this book, it brings you back to Roarke's past! I love Roarke and truth be told he is the reason I keep buying the next book in the series. He is every woman's dream man and in this book we get to learn about his past and what he did there that has had us guessing up to this point. Eve's and Sommerset's relationship is severely challenged but in the end we see they come to an understanding and an admiration of sorts with each other.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Roarke


    What about Susan Ericksen’s performance did you like?

    She is great to listen too. She does the different accents wonderfully, she flows from one voice to the other never making it choppy or taking you out of the story with a bad interpretation of the accent or the character. She has become my favorite narrator and I have bought books I might not have otherwise purchased simply because I saw she was doing the narrating and I know she will make the book interesting.


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

    The love between Eve and Roarke is believable not to mention enviable. I like to wait for their intimate moments, it is not just the intimate moments just to have them in the story, they always make them so you learn another depth of their relationship.Peobody her assistant, is funny. I can't tell you how many times I have been listening when out of the blue she will have a witty come back to Eve and I laugh out loud.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope J.D. Robb, AKA Nora Roberts keeps up this series for years to come!

    The historic hotel in Boonsboro has endured war and peace, the changing of hands, and even rumored hauntings. Now it’s getting a major face-lift from the Montgomery brothers and their eccentric mother. As the architect in the family, Beckett’s social life consists mostly of talking shop over pizza and beer. But there’s another project he’s got his eye on: the girl he’s been waiting to kiss since he was sixteen.

    What made the experience of listening to The Next Always the most enjoyable?

    Let me start by saying this book was good. Another one of Nora Roberts well written imaginative books. However, the narrator was so lack luster and unemotional I struggled with it. His voices for the different characters didn't change much from one character to another and it had me going to other books then coming back to it trying to struggle through to the end. If you like Nora Roberts, as I do, you may be able to listen with more patience.

    One of the reasons I enjoy Audio books is because I can get lost in the story by the narrator as they pull you in and make you believe the characters are real, this one did not do that for me.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of MacLeod Andrews?

    Someone who feels the story as they read it like most of the other narrators I have listened to have done.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It might have been if I wasn't so distracted by the narrator.


    Any additional comments?

    A good narrator can make a not so good book interesting. However, in the same token a bad narrator can ruin a good book.

    Payne, twin sister of Vishous, is cut from the same dark, seductive cloth as her brother. Imprisoned for eons by their mother, the Scribe Virgin, she finally frees herself - only to face a devastating injury. Manuel Manello, M.D., is drafted by the Brotherhood to save her as only he can - but when the human surgeon and the vampire warrior meet, their two worlds collide in the face of their undeniable passion. With so much working against them, can love prove stronger than the birthright and the biology that separates them?

    "Mesmerizing"
    Overall

    Following along with the Brotherhood is Mesmerizing & Attention Grabbing from the very first page. I would highly recommend starting at the very beginning of this addicting series so you can become enveloped in each Brothers story then getting to know them & getting lost in their world of adventure & magic!! My favorite Brother, Vishous, but they are all equally as mesmerizing in their own unique way!!
