    Leila's psychic abilities have been failing her, and now she isn't sure what the future holds. If that weren't enough, her lover, Vlad, has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she's also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold-shoulder treatment forever - especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won't admit that he loves her.... Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes.

    Where does Twice Tempted rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very High!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The chemistry between Vlad and Leila is sizzling hot and you just become captured by it!


    What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

    Tavia is one of my favorite readers...She gives it her all in every Jeaniene Frost Book and her performance in this book was no less spectacular. Cant wait for her performance in the last Leila and Vlad book.


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

    When Vlad confessed his love for Leila (FINALLY!) I had tears streaming down my cheeks....such a stubborn man!

    When Leila finally embraced her inner dark Goddess and let loose with her power....talk about Girl Power!


    Any additional comments?

    Vlad always had my attention in the Bones and Cat series. He was the helpful and comical sidekick so to speak, but he was just sooo intriguing a character I couldnt wait for him to have his own book. 'Once burned' I liked SO much.... Twice Tempted I LOVE!

    I've been waiting for this book for a looong time and I now I have to wait for the last part for the trilogy in order for me to have closure. Im so invested in this story and with Tavia's voice, I've been known to snap at anyone who actually dares to disturb me during Vlad and Leila's adventures....

    How dare they?! Cant they see Im in the middle of emotional trauma from Frost's amazing fantasy?!

    Hmpf!

    As much as I love Bones and Cat, I feel connected to Leila in a different way. Perhaps because she's semi-human and has been through tough times (which makes her even more human and relatable), I can actually see myself as Leila....and who wouldn't want a man as Flaming HOT as Vlad? With all of his alpha male genes, passion and humor, he makes a pretty ideal knight in shining armor....or should I say....A flaming dragon in the sky? ;D

    Hemi Ranapia isn’t looking for love. Fun, yes. Love, not so much. But a summer fishing holiday to laid-back Russell could turn out to be more adventure than this good-time boy ever bargained for. Reka Harata hasn't forgotten the disastrously hot rugby star she met a year ago, no matter how much she wishes she could. Too bad Hemi keeps refusing to be left in her past.

    Where does Just for You (Escape to New Zealand) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    High up on the list! I love Claire Bocking's work! So talented!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Just for You (Escape to New Zealand)?

    The rescue scene in the sea


    Which character – as performed by Claire Bocking – was your favorite?

    In the series? Hannah and Jenna are usually my favorites....but in this book I gotta say Reka grew on me... of the characters in here Reka is my favorite, of course....She has that whole Strong woman who will kick your ass if you dont behave, but will kiss it better afterwards if you ask nicely as well ;)


    Any additional comments?

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review, and I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion expressed here is my own.

    I love R.J's books, they always capture my attention. Especially her 'Escape to New Zealand' series...'Just For You' takes place before the first book in the series and we hear how two important characters in the series meet...and more importantly, we hear how Hemi has to actually work for Reka's attention. Love it!

    My only issue with this story is that I wish the book was longer and a bit more detaled. Other than that, loved it!

    Claire Bocking does an amazing job as always and Im in awe of her talent with changing accents. A multitalented woman! Plus, that Kiwi accent is to nail if you ain't a local. All in all, a brilliant book and worth every dime.

    Another amazing Audiobook Just for Me! :D

    Hugh Latimer's coping with a few problems just now. A broken hand, missing the European rugby tour... and a half-brother and sister who are playing havoc with his love life. Instead of packing down in the scrum, he's driving the carpool to ballet - or forgetting it's his turn. When he hears his neighbor wailing out bad pop in the wee hours, it's the last straw.

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

    I already have! I love Rosalind James' books but Claire B.'s performance is what keeps me returning for another audio book. Why not share it with friends? 😊


    What did you like best about this story?

    The Kiwi accent that the narrator flawlessly speaks in is def. up there, but I especially love the interaction between Hugh and his siblings. You can feel the awkwardness, the love and confusion between the three while they're trying to find a foothold with each other.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where Will, Hugh and Koti are shooting the scene for J.'s show and afterwards when J is showing Hugh her evil character's dirty secrets (in the lingerie drawer)....naughty girl! 😜


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

    I did listen to it in one sitting. 😊


    Any additional comments?

    I love R.J's Escape to New Zealand series so keep the books coming! But for God's sake....keep Claire on for the audio books! She's brilliant!
