    A satisfying tale of honor, chance, and star-crossed love infused with Southern wit, grace, and charm - the story of two old Southern families. The Langleys have more money than the Morgan Stanley Bank. And they think they have more class. The Barrett family made their 19th-century fortune in a less distinguished manner: corner grocery stores and liquor stores.

    As a lover of the South Carolina low country, this book was most enjoyable!

    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

    Story
    Would you listen to Reflected in You again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to this book again and am finding it very difficult to understand the complaints of some other reviewers. Just about all the questions left after Bared to You were answered and the story development was extremely well done. While the first book bothered me a bit by sounding somewhat of a knock off of the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy, Reflected in You distinguished itself as a separate entity and was very well written. Can't wait until the last book of the series is released in December.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I was most happy that while the steamy obsession continues, this book took the relationship between Eva and Gideon far beyond just sex. I loved that healing has been taken to a new level for both damaged lives.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The very last scenes when questions were answered was my favorite part.


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

    As someone who has experienced the depth of great love personally, there were some tears.

    Evanovich fans rejoice! Stephanie Plum is back in town, along with her sidekick Lula, her Grandma Mazur, and an ever-widening cast of freaks, criminals, deranged felons, and lunatics looking for love. And just when Stephanie thinks her life can't get any more complicated, in walks the mysterious Diesel. A man who seems to show up at the most inconvenient moments.

    Joann says: "Classic Stephanie Plum"
    "Plum Silly, Plum Fun"
    Overall

    If you are looking for a great mystery or a serious read, this book is not for you. However, if you want something to make you laugh and don't mind hearing some truly silly stuff, you will love this and the other Stephanie Plum novels. I listen in my car going back and forth to work, and Janet Evanovich and Lorelei King are great stress relievers!

  • The History of Love

    Nicole Krauss' first novel, Man Walks Into a Room, was shortlisted for the Los Angeles Times Book Award and her short fiction has been collected in Best American Short Stories. Now The History of Love proves Krauss is among our finest and freshest literary voices.

    Kathryn Lunetta says: "Beautiful story, beautifully written."
    "Not "Light" but Worth the Effort"
    Overall

    The characters are complex, the story line is sometimes difficult to follow, and the change of voices takes getting used to, but it's all well worth the effort. I laughed, I cried, and I was deeply moved!

    Personal vendettas, hidden treasure, and a monkey named Carl will send bounty hunter Stephanie Plum on her most explosive adventure yet. Dom Rizzi robbed a bank, stashed the money, and did the time. His family couldn't be more proud. He always was the smart one. Joe Morelli, Dom Rizzi, and Dom's sister, Loretta, are cousins. Morelli is a cop, Rizzi robs banks, and Loretta is a single mother waiting tables at the firehouse. The all-American family.

    Patricia says: "Laughed out loud..."

    Overall

    I enjoy the Stephanie Plum books very much, because after reading something "heavier" I often need to laugh for a change of pace.

    Abounding in Southern charm, Miss Julia Paints the Town finds the plucky North Carolinian pushed to the limit by a daunting heap of difficulties. Already trying to help three friends find their missing husbands, Miss Julia also must concoct a scheme to chase a slick New Jersey developer away from Abbotsville. But perhaps she's bitten off a bit more than she can chew.

  • The Lucky One

    Is there really such thing as a lucky charm? The hero of Nicholas Sparks's new novel believes he's found one in the form of a photograph of a smiling woman he's never met, but who he comes to believe holds the key to his destiny. The chain of events that leads to him possessing the photograph and finding the woman pictured in it is the stuff of love stories only a master such as Sparks can write.

    Amber says: "Very enjoyable!!!!"
    "A Superb Work from a Superb Author"
    Overall

    I love Nicholas Sparks and again he did not disappoint. The characters truly came to life for me, and the only bad thing is that I began to miss them immediately upon completion of the book. I trust that Sparks will continue to leave me wanting more in the future!
