    Nell Hawthorne is in love with her life-long best friend, Kyle Calloway. Their young love is invincible and life is full of promise; then one night Kyle dies suddenly in a tragic accident and Nell is forever changed. She meets Kyle's older brother, Colton, for the first time at the funeral. They both struggle to move on with life as best they can. Years later, they meet again in New York City, and Colton realizes that Nell has never really gotten over Kyle's death. She seems to be harboring a deeply rooted pain, a heavy weight of guilt, and regret. He knows he shouldn't get involved, but he can't help himself.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Make it longer! Loved it and didn't want it to end. Great story full of tragedy and love overcoming the pain that follows. Characters were well written and realistic. A must read and re-read!


    What other book might you compare Falling into You to and why?

    I did notice some similarities between this book and the Edge of Never. Both amazing however, the characters were just so much alike, only having slightly different background stories.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Gabriel Vaughan and Piper Goodeve ?

    Gabriel Vaughan sounded like a computer most of the time. He was horrible at doing different voices. I dreaded when it was his turn to narrate. Not the voice I would have picked for Colton. Dan Bittner would have made a better Colton. He has more of a sexy, confident voice, perfect for a this novel's leading man. Piper Goodeve was awesome. Loved her voice and thought she was a great Nell.


    Could you see Falling into You being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes!!! Not sure for which actors though...new talent would be best I think.


    Any additional comments?

    I love how the book is divided into segments of Nell's and Colton's points of views; however, I wish the audio book had used both narrators throughout the entire novel. It would have made the segments with Colton's point of view better if Piper was still doing Nell's voice and vice versa.

    At first at thought Griffin was a pig but I completely fell in love with him.


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

    Yes. She is spectacular! I don't understand why she isn't the narrator for Maiden Lane Series books 5 and 6. Bring her back!!

    One night was all it took, and I forgot everything and anything except the sexy fighter in the ring who sets my mind ablaze and my body on fire with wanting. Remington Tate is the strongest, most confusing man I've ever met in my life. He's the star of the dangerous underground fighting circuit, and I'm drawn to him as I've never been drawn to anything in my life. I forget who I am, what I want, with just one look from him. When he's near, I need to remind myself that I am strong - but he is stronger.

    Would you listen to Real again? Why?

    What other book might you compare Real to and why?

    I think that Real stands alone. I haven't read anything like it.


    Which character – as performed by Charlotte Penfield – was your favorite?

    I absolutely love Remy. He is so sexy and strong and delicious. I would fight for him too!


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

    YUM!

    Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He’s exacting, blunt, inconsiderate - and completely irresistible. A beautiful bastard. Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative - completely infuriating - creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he’s never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe’s so tempting he’s willing to bend the rules....

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Absolutely. This was an awesome story. I listened to this while spending my day hiking. I enjoyed having this audiobook as my exercise companion.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked both lead characters. Very strong, independent and stubborn.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Grace Grant’s performances?

    Probably not. I don't like her as a narrator. She did a horrible job doing the male characters. It was confusing in some areas because you couldn't distinguish between Chloe and Bennett.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Oh yes!

Work is her passion, and her trendy Milan apartment her sanctuary... until Sawyer Wells, a masculine masterpiece in a suit, lures her out of hiding with an irresistible offer: an exclusive partnership with his international chain of boutique hotels.

    I enjoyed it very much overall. However I do agree with another review that it was very predictable.


    What other book might you compare The Marriage Merger to and why?

    I have come to like romance novels much more with reading the marriage series.


    What about Madeleine Maby’s performance did you like?

    I would say so so. She has become very predictable. Not as good as the ones before.


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

    I though she did a great performance. It's clear why she was chosen for the majority of the marriage series books.

But for America Singer, being Selected is a nightmare. It means turning her back on her secret love with Aspen, who is a caste below her, and leaving her home to enter a fierce competition for a crown she doesn't want.

    So so. I wanted to keep finding out more.

They have come to this city of trade on a special mission to purchase a most rare artifact: a gift from the ancient goddess, Cybele, to her followers. It's the only remnant of a lost, pagan cult.

    Yes. It's a good story, good listen.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cybele's Secret?

    When the two main characters finally shared their true feelings with each other and Paula ran into his arms.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes. Although the book seemed rather slow paced at times.


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

    When the two main characters finally shared their true feelings with each other and Paula ran into his arms.


    Any additional comments?

    The narration wasn't quite what I expected at first, took a little to get used to it. She should have focused more on the accents like the first book. Otherwise very good.
