    When LA’s vampires, witches, and werewolves make a mess, they call Scarlett Bernard to clean it up. Her ability as a null erases all magical traces from anything — or anyone — that comes within ten feet of her, and keeps humans in the dark about the city’s paranormal activity. One night when she’s called to a grisly crime scene, Scarlett is spied by the all-too-human LAPD cop Jesse Cruz, who strikes up a deal with her: he’ll keep quiet about the supernatural underworld if she helps him crack the case. She agrees, but the city’s chief vampire, Dash, starts to suspect Scarlett is behind the murders and will reveal all she knows of his shadowy empire. Now it’ll take more than Scarlett’s unique abilities to clear her name, keep the underworld underground, and track down the real killer.

    What made the experience of listening to Dead Spots the most enjoyable?

    This book was a wonderful new view on the paranormal. I loved how the author wove back and forth between the past and present, giving us bits and pieces of the main character's background. Very well done.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I found the relationship between the main character and the two men in her life intriguing and I look forward to seeing how it progresses.


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

    It took me a couple of chapters to get used to the reader, but she really made the characters come alive, and now I can't imagine it being read by anyone else.


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

    I couldn't wait to get back to it each day!

    Most girls might think twice before getting engaged to someone like Reyes Farrow - but Charley Davidson is not most girls. She’s a paranormal private eye and grim-reaper-in-training who’s known to be a bit of a hell-raiser, especially after a few shots of caffeine. Her beloved Reyes may be the only begotten son of evil, but he’s dark and sultry and deeply sexy and everything Charley could hope for. Really. But when the FBI file on Reyes’ childhood happens to land into her lap, she can’t help herself: She opens it...and then the real fun begins.

    I love this series! It's very well written and has a really unique plot. The only thing I wish the author would change is I wish Shelby would dump her husband! He is a total male chauvinist who treats his wife like she is a dim-wit. And the fact that she totally agrees with him all the time just to make him happy makes her a very weak character at times.

    My favorite parts of the book are when Shelby and Ramos are together in scenes. There is so much chemistry there! Lose the husband and have a romance with Ramos!! PLEASE!

    Eleven minutes passed before Delaney Maxwell was pulled from the icy waters of a Maine lake by her best friend, Decker Phillips. By then her heart had stopped beating. Her brain had stopped working. She was dead. And yet she somehow defied medical precedent to come back seemingly fine - despite the scans that showed significant brain damage. Everyone wants Delaney to be all right, but she knows she's far from normal. Pulled by strange sensations she can't control or explain, Delaney finds herself drawn to the dying. Is her altered brain now predicting death, or causing it?

    I really enjoyed this book. The narrator is one of my favorites and is perfect for young adult fiction. The story line was very unique. The only thing I would warn anyone about is that it is a dark and depressing type of story. If you are in a sad or depressed mood, I would suggest something a little more upbeat. Otherwise, it was a good read. I am looking forward to the next in the series.

    Drew Evans is handsome and arrogant, he makes multimillion dollar business deals and seduces New York’s most beautiful women with just a smile. So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed? He’ll tell you he has the flu. But we all know that’s not really true. Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful and ambitious. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin.

    I enjoyed the first book of this series but this second book seemed to drag on and on, only getting interesting in the last hour. Then, just as I was beginning to enjoy the story, it was over. I will probably listen to the next book in hopes that it is better than the 2nd. The best part of this was the narrator, Amanda Ronconi. She was wonderful, as always.

She's already counting down the days until she turns 18 and can leave the tiny island of Swans Landing. But from the moment she steps off the ferry, nothing is as ordinary as it looks. As she tries to unravel the events that led to her mom fleeing the island 16 years ago, Mara finds that the biggest secret of all is only the beginning.

    I used to be ordinary Samantha Day, but that's changed. Now, after one dark kiss from a dangerous boy, I can steal someone's soul…or their life. If I give in to the constant hunger inside me, I hurt anyone I kiss. If I don't…I hurt myself. Bishop is the one whose kiss I crave most, but if I kiss him, I'll kill him. Then there's another boy, one I can't hurt. One whose kiss seems to miraculously quell my hunger.

    The plot was overly complicated and drawn out a bit, but still enjoyable. I just felt like towards the end I wanted it to hurry up and be over. A lot of the plot was predictable. This is kind of a second rate Darynda Jones book as the story lines are sooo similar. But Darynda Jones does a better job. (see Death and the Girl Next Door)

    That being said, I still thought it was a good read and worth a credit, especially if you enjoyed book one.

    The narrator definetely makes this story a great listen. She is one of my favorites!

    The normal part of Lorelei MacAlister's life didn’t just slip away quietly the day Jared Kovach came to town. Nope. The normal part of her life shattered. It exploded. It burst into a gazillion shards of fleeting light. It went out with a bang. Goodbye normal. Hello dark and eerie. While her best friend, Brooklyn, is focusing all of her energy on helping Lorelei hone her abilities, Lorelei is dealing with the reality that Satan's second in command has taken up residence inside her body. Oh, and the fact that she has a crush on the Angel of Death.

    Where does Death, Doom, and Detention rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Darynda Jones is by far one of my favorite authors and this book exceeded my expectations.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love the dynamic between Cameron and Jared.


    What about Lorelei King’s performance did you like?

    I love everything abut Lorelei King's performance! I don't know how she has time to voice so many of my favorite books, but I am very glad she does!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud quite a few times.


    Any additional comments?

    The only bad part about the book was that it ended. I am really looking forward to the next one and I don't know if I can wait until OCTOBER! :(

    Smart, über-careful, ordinary Samantha - that's me. But I just couldn't pass up a surprise kiss from my number one unattainable crush. A kiss that did something to me…something strange. Now I feel hungry all the time, but not for food. It's like part of me is missing - and I don't know if I can get it back. Then there's Bishop. At first I thought he was just a street kid, but the secrets he's keeping are as intense as his unearthly blue eyes. If he's what I think he is, he may be the only one who can help me.

    If you could sum up Dark Kiss in three words, what would they be?

    Angels, Demons & Grays


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dark Kiss?

    When the main characters finally kissed, and the repercussions of that.


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

    I LOVE Amanda Ronconi! She could read the phone book and make is sound great!


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

    I did look forward to getting back to the story.


    Any additional comments?

    The ending was a little abrupt and obviously continues on in another book, but it would have been nice to get a little more in this first book.
