    A Navy SEAL accepts a hot proposition: share a buddy's girlfriend and fulfill her dream of a ménage. But after meeting Kata he needs more than one night. And he wants her all to himself-a guilty secret that becomes a dangerous fantasy.

    Story
    What would have made Surrender to Me better?

    A listener/reader can only take so much angst. Kata's constant "If I give in to him, then I'll lose myself, blah, blah blah . . ." gets tiresome after the first 100 times she says it or thinks it. After the 200th time she says it, you just have to start hitting the fast forward button. If the author pulled back from this even just a little, it might have saved this book.


    What was most disappointing about Shayla Black’s story?

    Kata's constant whining.


    Which character – as performed by Lexi Maynard – was your favorite?

    The only two characters I actually enjoyed listening to were Logan and his father.


    Any additional comments?

    Just tone down the back-and-forth "I want him, I don't want him." Listeners/Readers in general are not stupid. Authors don't need to kill a dead horse, resurrect it, and keep on killing it just to get a point across. After a while it just kills the story - not the horse.

    Story

    I only write reviews when I find something special, and "Wild Man" is special. I loved the story and the narration, but most of all, I loved the characters. There's great smex, but it's not every other page - but what is there is hot!

    The relationship between Tess and Brock is a treasure. I'm listening to the story for about the third time while I'm writing this review.

    If you love alpha males, endearing secondary characters, ex-wives you love to hate, hot smex and great chemistry between your hero and heroine, then this book is for you.

    Johanna Walker is used to taking charge. But she’s about to meet someone who will make her lose control....

    It has always been up to Johanna to care for her family, particularly her younger brother, Cole. With an absent father and a useless mother, she’s been making decisions based on what’s best for Cole for as long as she can remember. She even determines what men to date by how much they can provide for her brother and her, not on whatever sparks may - or may not - fly. But with Cameron MacCabe, the attraction is undeniable....

    Story

    I thought there was no way this author could top On Dublin Street. I thought Jo would be a superficial character, maybe a bit two-dimensional. Boy, was I wrong. Not only did I listen to this audio book straight through, but I listened to it again when I was done.

    I loved this book as much as the first. I honestly can't say which one I loved more. The story was great, the characters were wonderful and the narration was perfect Thank you Samantha Young for another great story. This is one I will treasure like an old friend.

    Great voice characterization. She performs Andrew's voice flawlessly.

    Story

    Notorious for her free-spirited antics, Lady Elizabeth Wylder revels in attention - but not the sort that leaves her humiliated when her future husband, the Duke of Hawkesworth, fails to appear for their much-anticipated first introduction. So when a chance encounter leads to a sizzling kiss with a dangerously handsome stranger, she nearly succumbs. The shock of finally meeting her betrothed only to come face to face with her rakish would-be seducer inspires fury - and fans the flames of a fire that both Lizzie and the Duke acknowledge is most agreeable.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Isabella Bradford and/or Romy Nordlinger?

    Yes, but there better be more groveling.


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

    More groveling!


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Romy Nordlinger?

    Only if he can grovel better.


    Do you think When the Duchess Said Yes needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Only if the hero wants to try and grovel better.


    Any additional comments?

    When men behave badly and they want to be forgiven, then they need to grovel. Oh and did I mention that they need to grovel better?

    Sometimes being the grim reaper really is that. Grim. And since Charley’s last case went so awry, she has taken a couple months off to wallow in the wonders of self-pity. But when a woman shows up on her doorstep convinced someone is trying to kill her, Charley has to force herself to rise above. Or at least get dressed. She quickly realizes something is amiss when everyone the woman knows swears she’s insane.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet to be better than the print version?

    N/A - I haven't read the print version. That's why I have Audible. Now I can listen to my favorite authors while cleaning the house, driving down the road, grocery shopping . . .


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Charley! She's one of my all-time favorite characters. You just never know what she's going to do next.


    Which character – as performed by Lorelei King – was your favorite?

    Reyes Farrow - his voice is so sexy. Lorelei King is a truly talented performer. It's a real treat to listen to a female narrator who can pull off a believable male voice without sounding like she has a cold.


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

    I did listen to it in one sitting. I started when I got up in the morning and was still listening at dinnertime.


    Any additional comments?

    Darynda Jones is a truly talented writer. I know this series gets compared to Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series (which I also read), but the Charley Davidson series is better written and much more original.
