    For almost two years now, Kiera’s boyfriend, Denny, has been everything she’s ever wanted: loving, tender, and endlessly devoted to her. When they head off to a new city to start their lives together - Denny at his dream job and Kiera at a top-notch university - everything seems perfect. Then an unforeseen obligation forces the happy couple apart. Feeling lonely, confused, and in need of comfort, Kiera turns to an unexpected source - a local rock star named Kellan Kyle. At first, he’s purely a friend she can lean on, but as her loneliness grows, so does their relationship. And then one night everything changes....

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

    Yes. Great story that I just could not quit listening to. A love story that tugs at your heart and your nerves... you want to smack them, hold them and kiss them all in five minutes!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Thoughtless?

    When Kellan spilled out all of his feelings for her!


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

    She was good at switching her voice between characters. I have a hard time with that on most books. This narrator did a great job.


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

    When they finally decided to be together..


    Any additional comments?

    The audio was terrible on this one. I could hear the narrator fine and she was great but there was alot of background noise going in and out. Sounded like they were taping this in a room of someones house...

    This is what happened: I met him at the candy store. He turned and smiled at me and I was surprised enough to smile back. This was not a children's candy store, mind you, this was the kind of place you went to buy expensive imported chocolate truffles for your boss' wife because you felt guilty for having sex with him when you were both at a conference in Milwaukee.

    What did you like best about this story?

    What didn’t you like about Elenna Stauffer’s performance?

    The men's voices were really bad... but the female's were ok.

    This 10th novel in Robyn Carr’s New York Times best-selling series features scruffy-looking ex-Navy gynecologist Aiden Riordan and prickly lawyer Erin Foley. While each just wants to get away from it all for the summer, a bear scare, a bizarre concussion, and a hilarious case of mistaken identity thrust them together and kindle an unlikely romance. Then Aiden’s scheming ex-wife shows up.

    New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Robyn Carr is renowned for her Virgin River series. When Colin Riordan is caught in a devastating helicopter crash, Virgin River seems like the ideal place to recover - both physically and emotionally. But when PR guru Jillian Matlock, who rents a Victorian home down the street, finds Colin trespassing, an instant connection blossoms between them - which leads to more than either expects.

    If you could sum up Wild Man Creek in three words, what would they be?

    Love, dispare and fulfillment.


    What other book might you compare Wild Man Creek to and why?

    All (only 6) of the Virgin River Series that I have read have the same story line. Man meets women, one or both have issues but they find love and have bumps along the way. Just enough issues and love to keep you listening.


    Have you listened to any of Therese Plummer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. She is great!


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

    Mad me laugh, made me cry.

    Lucy Delacourt's temp position isn't quite her dream job but it pays the bills. The highlight of her day is riding the elevator in the mornings with a handsome stranger. Tall, dark, and sexy as hell, Lucy knows he's way out of her league, but a girl can look, right? Everything changes the day the stranger seduces her. Completely out of character, she yields without a fight, but she has no idea her wanton acts with a man whose name she doesn't know will change her life forever. Because the sexy stranger is none other than Jeremiah Hamilton, billionaire CEO of Hamilton Industries, and one taste isn't nearly enough to satisfy his need.

    What made the experience of listening to Anything He Wants the most enjoyable?

    As with any book I listen to I can really take in the words rather than having to re-read lines or papragraphs. I enjoyed the narrator as well.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The fact that it wasn't as Fifty Shades as I expected it to be by the summary I had read. No offense to Fifty Shades as I've already read that series twice! I was happy that the story seemed to veer off just enough that I was not always comparing it to Fifty.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Lucy was rescued


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

    When she was told "no" to love


    Any additional comments?

    I read on Sara's blog that she entends to 'Definitly" continue this series but I'm hoping it does not take forever ...the ending was too abrupt for my liking.
