    Twenty-four-year-old barista Belle Jamison dreams of a better job and a decent love life - until a crazy scientist spikes her mocha latte! Suddenly, Belle can wield the four elements - earth, wind, fire and water - with only a thought. Coffee too hot? No problem. Hair in need of a blow-dry? Done. Gorgeous government agent Rome Masters has been sent to neutralize Belle. There's just one problem: the sparks Belle and Rome generate are even hotter than the ones flying from her eyes!

    What would have made Playing with Fire better?

    The writer shouldnt have tried so hard to be trendy...accidentally drinking a "latte" with that gave the main character magic abilities? C'mon...lame.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    nothing corny like this


    How could the performance have been better?

    the narator shouldnt have sounded like an airhead valley girl.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    the cliche sparked disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    I couldnt get past chapter 3.

    Would you listen to Dead Ever After again? Why?

    I would listen to Dead Ever After Again because this is the last novel and i didnt want the series to end. By far my favorite series ever read. Alot of the characters came back in this book for the final ending.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Ever After?

    The return of previous characters


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

    Her talent for reading as all the different characters.


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

    Yes, I couldnt stop listening. I was able to clean my entire house while listening.

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

    yes but I cringed everytime the narrator read as Maddox. Corny overacting.


    Would you recommend The Darkest Night to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recooment they read the book, not listen to it.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Max Bellmore?

    Not sure.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    A better performance by the narrator
