    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.

    If you could sum up Fifty Shades of Grey in three words, what would they be?

    Great romance story


    What did you like best about this story?

    The entire story is great, but particularly the part when the couple run into various problems and they are solved succesfully.


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

    I cried at the end when she leaves him. Luckily I have read the following two volumes on my Kindle and know that it is not the end for them.

But since being branded a shrew after a disastrous social season, Bridget knows she’s lucky to even have a man come near her. It's enough to make a lady flee the country.

But not only is Carpenini not expecting her, he doesn’t even remember her!

    Would you listen to Let It Be Me again? Why?

    I would certainly relisten this story. It is a testament to the mixture of the arts. I actually found and played the pieces mentioned in the story on youtube as a background to the story's unfolding. I finished off with a rendering of Beethoven's 9th Symphony from the reuniting of the two German states with renowned composer/conductor Leonard Bernstein in the lead. Magnificent!!! I almost felt like Bridget at the premiere of the piece.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Let It Be Me?

    The moment she 'got' the spirit of the Sonata. The entire scene is romantic, erotic and beautiful.


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

    I have listened to another recording from Alison Larkin. I like her clear voice and British accent.


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

    The moment at the end where everything comes together and life changes completely for Bridget.


    Any additional comments?

    A wonderful story. I love the interwoven music and romance story. As inspiration to listen to great music this is brilliant.

    Elisabeth Anderson has seen Trevor and his friends at the infamous Manhattan BDSM club WhipperSnapper, where everyone calls them the BAD Boys, for "Billionaire Arrogant Doms." The BAD Boys--Trevor Brooks, Marc Wilde, and Roman Chase - are aptly named; they've made money hand over fist due to their aggressive investing at the Brooks Wilde Chase Fund. These guys are so rich they can get away with anything, or so the rumors go.

    What did you like best about Enslaved? What did you like least?

    I like the story, but cannot get past the narrator's horrible mannerisms in her performance.
    I hate the constant phrasing she utilizes, it destroys the story to my ears. Within barely 5 minutes I hated the performance so much I was tempted to stop the book and just forget it. I hung on but with a constant iriitation overlaying the listen.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like Trevor a lot. I think he is a nice guy with dominant tendencies.


    How could the performance have been better?

    With another narrator who doesn't have those annoying mannerisms.


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Another narrator

    Graduate student Katelyn Gunn is headed for her first day of assistant teaching when she is almost hit by a car. The nervous and inexperienced Kate is shocked to realize that it isn’t the near-death experience that has her heart racing, but the sinfully sexy man behind the wheel. Adam Kinkade is ultra-wealthy, devastatingly handsome, and the most powerful distribution mogul in Chicago - he is also the first man who ignites emotions inside of her other than fear. Adam is a man used to getting what he wants. And he wants Katelyn - naked and often.

    Katheryne says: "Too Rushed"

    Would you listen to Break Me Slowly again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to this book again, and I may do just that when the third installment comes out. I enjoyed the story of Kate and Adam very much. They are people with problems, but they manage to find a way through these problems.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Break Me Slowly?

    When they were reunited after the short break-up. It was a very touching scene. I love Kate for making it through that horrible childhood with her heart still intact.


    What about Jennifer Stark’s performance did you like?

    I like Jennifer Stark's voice for these books. She has a young, expressive voice which fits the main characters who are telling the story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    The improbable, but lovely story of Katelyn and Adam come to life.

    Megan Riley has always lived her life right - right boyfriend, right college, right career…right up until she discovers that her boyfriend is engaged to another woman and “debriefing” her boss was an expected part of her job description.

    What did you love best about Possess Me Slowly?

    This is book two in a trilogy and I had already heard book one, so the abrupt jump into the story did not disturb me. I think it is important to stress that listeners should buy book 1 and hear this before venturing into book two.
    It is a good story about two unlikely people falling in love despite one of them having commitment hang-ups.
    I can definiely recommend it-


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Possess Me Slowly?

    The best moment is the reconciliation at the bedside of Megan's father.


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

    Jennifer Stark brings the main character to life and makes it a story that goes straight to the heart. Her voice fits Megan very well.


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

    I cried when Megan left Preston and until they were reunited.

    Loved it. My first audiobook experience. But Nora Roberts is a known entity so I took the chance. Another super story from her hand. Cannot wait to get the remaining two volumes in the series.
