    The Bonding.

    When Tamra and Jessinda talk and make up.

    What made the experience of listening to Fifty Shades Freed the most enjoyable?

    The fact that it was the same performer from the first two books kept the character alive in my mind.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story itself. Around the end it picks up a ton and some things you never expect to happen, just do.


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

    Her performance breathes emotion, taking you directly into the character's heads.


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

    Yes, at the end when Anna get's (spoiler) kidnapped. I was so anxious about the story I couldn't turn it off.


    Any additional comments?

    An amazing trilogy. It is not as controversial as everyone says it is, it has a great storyline and amazing characters.

    Marked as special at an early age, Jacinda knows her every move is watched. But she longs for freedom to make her own choices. When she breaks the most sacred tenet among her kind, she nearly pays with her life. Until a beautiful stranger saves her. A stranger who was sent to hunt those like her. For Jacinda is a drakia descendant of dragons whose greatest defense is her secret ability to shift into human form.

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

    I would highly recommend this book to all of my fantasy and dragon lovers alike.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was defiantly Will, he was kind and caring while still being firm and authoritative.


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

    The exasperation in the character's voice. I would say this brings you into the book and makes the character seem real, as if you were her, feeling her real struggles.


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

    Not extremely, though I couldn't turn off my headset, so I hope that says something. No one thing stands out, I've been captivated by the entire book.


    Any additional comments?

    I just love this book and can't wait to read more by this author with performances by this performer.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    The kiss, no spoilers, but the kiss at the bar, read and you'll see what I mean.
