    Not a bad listen. I have to say I'm not fond of the violence against a pregnant woman. Other than that, I enjoyed the plot, which moved along nicely. The characters were also very interesting. I would recomend this book.

    For almost two years now, Kiera’s boyfriend, Denny, has been everything she’s ever wanted: loving, tender, and endlessly devoted to her. When they head off to a new city to start their lives together - Denny at his dream job and Kiera at a top-notch university - everything seems perfect. Then an unforeseen obligation forces the happy couple apart. Feeling lonely, confused, and in need of comfort, Kiera turns to an unexpected source - a local rock star named Kellan Kyle. At first, he’s purely a friend she can lean on, but as her loneliness grows, so does their relationship. And then one night everything changes....

    Ugh what a waste! This book could have been about 6 hours shorter and a lot less immature. How does someone playing two men not know what a mess they're going to cause? And, though I understand this was about college aged students, how much more immature and indecisive can you get? Kierra is definitely "thoughtless"! Not my cup of tea . . .

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    After watching the movie, I thought I'd listen to this book! As usual, it's soooo much better than the movie! Miss Collins really did an amazing job on this book and I look forward to listening to the next book in the series!

    For me, when I purchase a book, I look for great ratings on the narator. Even a great book can be terrible if it's not read well. I did really enjoy the narator in this book, and a great story line pulled it all together to make this one of my favorites.

    Rafe McCay has a bullet in his side and a bounty hunter on his tail. Since there are few doctors in the Arizona Territory, he takes what he can get. Pointing a gun at Dr. Annie Parker, he abducts her into the mountains so she can tend his wounds. In this dangerous wilderness world, Rafe wakens in Annie a woman's hungry desire, as Annie finds a man wounded in soul as well as body. Her healing touch brings him new hope, but the secrets of the past still pursue them.

    I really enjoyed this book! I can't tell exactly what it was that just made it click with me, but it did. I'll listen to this one again! I think the main female character was my favorite; her tenacity made her very lovable.

    'Tis the season for mistletoe and holly, Santa . . . and suspense. And the gift that keeps on giving is Ice: premier thriller author Linda Howard's breathless tale of a man, a woman, and a battle for survival against an unforgiving winter - and an unrelenting killer. Oh what fun it is to read.

    A little too predictable for me. I can't put my finger on why I didn't click with this book; I just didn't.

    Two backcountry skiers find the body of a young woman embedded in the ice of a remote mountain creek. All through the night, police work with arc lights and chain saws to dig her out. But identification doesn't take as long. Abbie Cooper is wanted for murder and acts of eco-terrorism, and her picture is on law-enforcement computers all across America. But just how did she die? And what was the trail of events that led this joyous, golden child of a loving family so tragically astray?

    M. Andrews says: "Awesome"
    "Whoa . . . . . heart wrenching"
    Overall

    I had a love hate relationship with this book! Although it could be a little slow in places, it was wonderful and heart wrenching all in one! Even though you know the ending before you get to it, I just kept pulling for the main character. This is one I'll listen to over and over again.

    In the rugged Southwest of the 1880s, fate made her part of three warring cultures...At the military outpost of Camp Bowie, beautiful Brittany Laird was abused by the family who'd given her sanctuary and pursued by Zach Tyrell, rugged rancher whose kisses both inflamed and frightened her. At an Indian encampment in the Chirichua Mountains, Brittany was held prisoner by the notorious Apaches, her life spared only through the pleas of a child.

    Marydior says: "Disappointing"

    Way too slow for me. Honestly, I don't even remember the book now, and I only listened to it last week. I would find myself driving or cleaning, and not even listening to the book . . . .

    Is there really such thing as a lucky charm? The hero of Nicholas Sparks's new novel believes he's found one in the form of a photograph of a smiling woman he's never met, but who he comes to believe holds the key to his destiny. The chain of events that leads to him possessing the photograph and finding the woman pictured in it is the stuff of love stories only a master such as Sparks can write.

    Seventeen year old Veronica "Ronnie" Miller's life was turned upside-down when her parents divorced and her father moved from New York City to Wilmington, North Carolina. Three years later, she remains angry and alientated from her parents, especially her father...until her mother decides it would be in everyone's best interest if she spent the summer in Wilmington with him.

    I love Nicholas Sparks, but I find that on occasion he can be overly predictable. Some of his novels have little to no plot, and this was one of those. I still enjoyed the book, but it was kind of boring; one that I could put down.
