    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Brooks novels are great just the presenter missed the mark


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kathleen Brooks again?

    Not likely - I have enjoyed reading her books so may stick with that format. I enjoy listening to books and read lots as well however this one was the first audio book that I found painfully to continue.


    How could the performance have been better?

    May be a woman's voice


    What character would you cut from Risky Shot?

    Dannie and Mo - sad considering they are some of the main characters.

    Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over 10 years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows that her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire - and suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.

    The setting of the time / story


    What was most disappointing about J. D. Robb’s story?

    Slow pace and the narrator made it worse


    Did Naked in Death inspire you to do anything?

    Drove me crazy


    Any additional comments?

    I hope book two is better - oh but wait I will never know! Once bitten twice shy.

    Ryan Christensen just wanted to be an actor. Never in his wildest dreams did he imagine a life where fans would chase him, paparazzi would stalk him, and Hollywood studios would want to own him. While filming in Seaport, Rhode Island, Ryan ducks into a neighborhood bar for a quick escape from legions of screaming fans... and finds much more than he expected. Nursing a recent heartbreak, Taryn Mitchell believes men are best kept at a safe distance. But when Ryan Christensen unexpectedly bursts through the front door of her pub, she can’t help but be drawn in

    Would you consider the audio edition of Love Unscripted to be better than the print version?

    Im sucker for books - I read this series some time ago but just wanting to get a feel for what it would sound like - and love the book the characters, the story - I know its not a new story line but this is different and I have recommended these books to so many people. You cant go wrong with this one.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The relationship between Taryn and Ryan felt real for all its promise and heartache


    What about Madeleine Maby’s performance did you like?

    I always think if you have read the story and then listen to it and it doesn't change how you see the character then the performer has succeeded.


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

    Yes and wanted to read it in one sitting as well - this is not a good thing - no house work gets done!

    When it comes to sex, Ash McIntyre has always explored his wilder side - extreme and uncompromising. He demands control. And he prefers women who want it like that. Then Ash meets Josie, who seems immune to his charms and his wealth. Intrigued, he begins a relentless pursuit, determined she won’t be the one who got away. He never imagined the one woman to tell him no would be the only woman who’d ever drive him to the edge of desire.

    Would you try another book from Maya Banks and/or Adam Paul?

    I love Maya Banks books however this wasn't my favourite but had to read / listen to it as I had completed the others in the series


    Would you recommend Burn to your friends? Why or why not?

    Only because I recommended the others in the series.


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

    No first time and he was good.


    Do you think Burn needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Nope leave it be - do another series! WAITING PLEEEEEASE

Neither Caitlyn nor Spencer expects to fall hard for each other, and with rugby season starting and Caitlyn's visa about to expire, the timing seems perfect. But with their relationship deadline approaching, the old rules of the game seem less important than before... until past secrets surface, challenging everything they thought they knew about each other.
