    A girl who believes trust can be misplaced, promises are made to be broken, and loyalty is an illusion. A boy who believes truth is relative, lies can mask unbearable pain, and guilt is eternal. Will what they find in each other validate their conclusions, or disprove them all?

    Jory Harcourt is finally living the dream. Being married to US Marshal Sam Kage has changed him - it's settled the tumult of their past and changed Jory from a guy who bails at the first sign of trouble to a man who stays and weathers the storm. He and Sam have two kids, a house in the burbs, and a badass minivan. Jory's days of being an epicenter for disaster are over. Domestic life is good.

    Would you try another book from Mary Calmes and/or Finn Sterling?

    I really like Mary Calmes. As for the narrator, I liked his Sam voice but I REALLY DIDN'T like his Jory voice. = (


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked getting to see Sam and Jory together again.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Change the Jory voice.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes!!


    Any additional comments?

    I am really going to miss Sam and Jory. Although, I must say, I liked Jory's personality better in the previous books.

    Jory Keyes leads a normal life as an architect’s assistant until he is witness to a brutal murder. Though initially saved by police Detective Sam Kage, Jory refuses protective custody - he has a life he loves that he won’t give up no matter who is after him. But Jory’s life is in real jeopardy, especially after he agrees to testify about what he saw. While dealing with attempts on his life, well-meaning friends who want to see him happy, an overly protective boss, and a slowly unfolding mystery that is much more sinister than he could ever imagine, the young gay man finds himself getting involved with Sam, the conflicted and closeted detective....

    Would you consider the audio edition of Matter of Time: Vol. 1 to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print form of this book. I am hoping that they will make books 3 and 4 into audiobooks as well.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    NOOOO!!!! How could they end it that way?!?! The injustice of it all!! I want to cry and scream in frustration!!


    Which character – as performed by Paul Morey – was your favorite?

    My favourite character as performed by Paul Morey was: Jory.


    If you could take any character from Matter of Time: Vol. 1 out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I would take Jory out to dinner because I think he would be absolutely delightful and we could have fun dancing afterwards.

    "Coming home from work to find my boyfriend banging our hairy, married landlord—in our bed—was bad enough. Discovering Jamie had also cleaned out my bank accounts made it officially the worst day of my life. I think I can be forgiven for wanting revenge, even if a few little laws (and possibly Jamie's nose) got bent in the process."

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I would say that yes, the majority of the time I spent listening to this book was worth it. Why? Because it had a good blend of a strong male who wasn't DOMineering.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    That Mark saved his sorry ex. The least interesting were some of the accents.


    How could the performance have been better?

    I enjoy accents, just not this one...it was like I enjoyed some of the accent but then there were times when I was just like 'uh no'.


    Did Men of Smithfield: Mark and Tony inspire you to do anything?

    Reminded me that I need to make sure I KNOW who I am dealing with.

    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....

    What would have made Thoughtless better?

    If it was:
    A. Shorter
    B. Kiera had had a spine and brain
    C. If it didn't exist at all


    What was most disappointing about S. C. Stephens’s story?

    The stupid, weak, blushing, sobbing, weak, indecisive and overall infuriating heroine.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Rebekkah Ross?

    Yes.


    What character would you cut from Thoughtless?

    Kiera.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't read, unless you like weak and annoying heroines that make you want to throttle them...so basically read if you like 50 Shades of Grey without all of the intense sex scenes.

    Baltimore is a city in alarming distress. Rising violence is fanning the flames of public outrage. Thus the FBI’s latest ideas to improve public relations: a municipal softball league and workshops for community leaders. But the new commitments just mean more time Special Agents Ty Grady and Zane Garrett have to spend apart when they’re happily exploring how to be more than by-the-book partners. Then the latest spate of crime explodes in their faces—literally.

    If you could sum up Divide and Conquer in three words, what would they be?

    Bombs, Hospitals, & Recon-Team


    What other book might you compare Divide and Conquer to and why?

    the ones in the earlier series and because they preceded this one.

    Oh and a book called "Fair Game" is similar but only because the main character used to be an FBI agent and deals with a serial killer and it is an m/m romance/suspense book.


    What three words best describe Sean Crisden’s performance?

    So so. I like the guy who did the first two books better.


    If you could rename Divide and Conquer, what would you call it?

    I wouldn't.. well it could be called Bombs and Trauma.


    Any additional comments?

    I really want them to make the fifth book, "Armed & Dangerous" and "Stars & Stripes" into audio books and soon!!

    No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal. But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible....

    Heart warming moments


    Would you be willing to try another one of MacLeod Andrews’s performances?

    Maybe


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

    Not knowing isn't always best, especially when comes back to bite you in the ass.


    Any additional comments?
