    Would you listen to Animal Magnetism again? Why?

    I would listen to Animal Magnetism again simply because the narrator did such an outstanding job with the characters. I was most impressed with the animal sounds, they were realistic and really cute!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lilah was my favorite character. Something about the way she dealt with all her mistakes, fears and insecurities. Her love for everyone who needed her struck a chord in me.


    What about Karen White’s performance did you like?

    I loved the way she portrayed Lilah and the animals


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

    Yes but unfortunately could not. We took a road trip I listened to the first half getting to our destination and the second coming home.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this series. It is a well written romance. The characters are solid and believable. The animals are too cute for words. If you love animals and if you love a good romance this is the series for you!

    Rocco Silas has come home to Wyoming after long years as a Red Team operative in Afghanistan. It isn't easy returning to civilian life, especially burdened as he is with a staggering case of PTSD or hunted as he is by an enemy determined to seek an eye-for-eye - neither of which can he battle until he confronts the truth of what happened one fateful day in the high mountain ranges of the Hindu Kush.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to anyone who loves suspense and romance. Ms. Levine tells a story that keeps you riveted until the very end.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the compassion of the leading lady. Her understanding of a damaged soul. The leading man while brave and strong learned to lean on his lady to help him through his PTSD episodes.


    What does Eric G. Dove bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I did not realize how much detail I missed when I read the book. I obtained a clearer understanding of the underlying plot to the story. He is a really good narrator


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

    Yes it was and I did :)


    Any additional comments?

    I gave 5 stars to Ms Levine when I read her books. I wish I could giver her 10 stars for the quality of her work. Eric Dove did a wonderful job in bringing her book to life. I look forward to enjoying the rest of this series on audio.

    TV reporter Laura Nilsson, known as the "Baghdad Babe," spent eighteen months in an Al-Qaeda compound after being kidnapped live on the air. Two years later, she's still wondering why.No mission in Javier Corbray's fourteen years as a Navy SEAL affected him the way Laura's rescue did.

    Where does Striking Distance rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Striking Distance Ranks Number One in my Audio Book Collection. It has intrigue, passion, mystery and all the elements needed for a great romance. The leading charterers Javier and Laura are strong passionate people. Laura survived at brutal kidnapping, 18 months of torture, many attempts on her life, yet through it all show great strength and a strong will to live and survive. Javier is just what we all would expect of a SEAL, he is a protector, the one who strives to right the wrongs. In Striking Distance you will get a little in sight to other favorite characters from Ms. Clare's I-Team Series. This is Kaleo Griffith 6th I-Team Book. His versatility in portraying the characters in this book make him a joy to listen to. I have rated Striking Distance with 5 stars only because there were not 10 stars to give it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved how patience Javier was towards Laura as she healed from the trauma of captivity. The Teddy Bear quote was the best of all times.


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

    Yes I have and he just gets better with each recording.


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

    Even though I did not get to set and listen in one sitting it was one I wish I could have.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Naked Edge, book 5, in the I-Team Series by Pamela Clare. I highly recommend not only this book but the whole series.Pamela writing is stellar in this series, it has drama, romance, and a story line that keeps you riveted to the story. Kaleo Griffith brings to life the characters of the I-Team.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Naked Edge?

    Without giving a spoiler, one of the lead characters receives a threatening phone call. All I will say is I jumped out of my chair. I did not see that coming and I had read the book first! Kaleo portrayal of the characters is so true to form you cannot help but get caught up in the story


    What about Kaleo Griffith’s performance did you like?

    Simply put..........all of it!


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

    I have no clue what the tag line would be all I know is I would stand in line to see the movie.


    Any additional comments?

    There are two other books that the author self-published that I would love to hear Kaleo narrate. She also has an up coming book later this year that I hope to see on audio.

    I have always enjoyed Christy Reece's writing. To hear the words come to life was absolutely incredible. . I picked up nuances in the story that were missed while reading the book. I have always recommend Ms. Reece's books now I will recommend they be listened to also!
