    "Don't get me wrong, I'm not in the habit of reading other people's mail, but it was just a piece of paper with a few lines scrawled on it, clearly meant for the apartment upstairs. It looked so innocent, but decidedly - deliciously - it was not."

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Better transition and explanation of Paige's ultimate decision; needed more closure in the end. Ending felt rushed, and not fully resolved


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Didn't care for the narrator's "Austin" performance, male characters in general were awkward, but Austin really annoyed me. Absolutely loved Artie and Kira voices and portrayal.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

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

    Adorable yet heart-wrenching


    What did you like best about this story?

    Gavin, of course... Lol! Seriously, there are too many things to list; I loved almost all of it. There is one part of the book that I found distracting and I am still note sure why it was necessary... don't worry no spoilers, here - you will see what I mean when you listen/read it. But all in all, great follow up. Loved the characters, appreciated the nice and thorough ending - didn't feel rushed, provided just enough time to reflect and savor the story of the characters. I think one of the best conclusions I have heard/ read in quite some time.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Male voices seemed to be an issue for narrator and outside of Gavin, it was sometimes difficult to distinguish the male voices, and it may have just been me, but they all sounded a bit "dopey." Also, I really disliked the voice used for Fallon. Was it just me or did Fallon and Trevor sound exactly the same??? Creepy.


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

    Yes, and I almost did.


    Any additional comments?

    Great listen. Not sure what I was expecting, but a great surprise.

    Sadie Turner is not a control freak, just…orderly. When a cheating spouse topples Sadie’s impeccably tidy world, she packs up her kids for a summer vacation at her aunt’s lake house, hoping to relax, reboot, and pick up the pieces away from men. All men. But eccentric Aunt Dody has other plans: she’s determined to see Sadie have a little fun - with Desmond, the sexy new neighbor. Tall, tanned, muscular - and even great with her kids - Desmond is Sadie’s worst nightmare. He must have a flaw - he’s a man, after all - so Sadie vows to keep her distance. But as summer blazes on, their attraction ignites....

    Where does Crazy Little Thing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 10 for sure.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Crazy Little Thing?

    Pretty much anytime Aunt Dody opened her mouth! Loved Aunt Dody!!!!


    Did Lori Reyes do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Pretty much. A few times the transitions between Desmond and other characters were a little muddled, but for the most part you could definitely differentiate between the characters.


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

    I actually laughed out loud... for most of the book.


    Any additional comments?

    Would love to read/ hear more about Aunt Dody's future escapades. What a character!

    What disappointed you about Kiss Me, I'm Irish?

    The narration was all over the place, and REALLY painful. I even tried to speed up the narration.... it didn't help. After the first book, I was hoping that the second two were narrated by different narrators, I think it tainted my view of the last two books before I even began.


    Would you ever listen to anything by the authors again?

    Maybe, if they had a different narrator.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her various and inconsistent accents really made it difficult to stick with the book and get into the stories. I thought the Northeast and Irish(?) accents were painful in The Sins of His Past, but the Southern accents in Whatever Reilly Wants were horrific. May have been better to have just read the book, instead of listening to them.


    What character would you cut from Kiss Me, I'm Irish?

    No one character disturbed me, but again I had a hard time getting into the stories. It was the narrator.
