    For more than 300 years, Bluff House has sat above Whiskey Beach, guarding its shore - and its secrets. But to Eli Landon, it’s home.… A Boston lawyer, Eli has weathered an intense year of public scrutiny and police investigations after being accused of - but never arrested for - the murder of his soon-to-be-ex wife. He finds sanctuary at Bluff House, even though his beloved grandmother is in Boston recuperating from a nasty fall. Abra Walsh is always there, though.

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

    A better narrator for one that guy put me to sleep I couldn't even finish the voice was annoying and dull


    Has Whiskey Beach turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No and I love Nora this book and narrator just were not up to par


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    slow dull and boring could not even get past the first few chapters


    What character would you cut from Whiskey Beach?

    none


    Any additional comments?

    A new narrator would be best because this one stinks

    What made the experience of listening to SEAL Under Covers the most enjoyable?

    Narrator is incredible and it's a great story with characters you'll adore


    What other book might you compare SEAL Under Covers to and why?

    If you like Lynn Raye Harris or Natazsa Waters books with strong Military heroes, suspense and romance then you will love this book, come on what's better than hot men, stubborn women and a great story to boot


    Have you listened to any of J. D. Hart’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes and enjoyable like always, he's got a sexy voice and you'll want to listen to anything he reads over and over again :)


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes Armando's fear when his sister was taken again and his fierce love and protectiveness for Mia,


    Any additional comments?

    Armando helps his sister after being held hostage and try's to keep her on the straight and narrow. His sister has a new friend named Gina and she gets under Armani's skin and a budding sexual tension insues. Secrets overshadow the relationship bc Gina isn't telling him the whole truth and he senses it. To boot Gina's ex is a stalking buy job with possessing her on his mind. Can these two characters find romance between the secrets, their high pressure jobs and inferring friends and relatives.

    Former pro-football kicker Sam Ridge has notoriously bad luck with women - from cheaters to fame chasers. Still, the gorgeous brunette at the bar in Fool's Gold looks harmless - until she takes him home and he discovers a room devoted to securing a man, for life. Dellina Hopkins never guessed that storing gowns from a friend's bridal boutique would chase away her first and only fling. After her parents died, she skipped her "wild youth" to raise her sisters. She doesn't want forever from Sam, but one night - all night - would've been nice.

    Before We Kiss

    This story was exceptional, as always the author delivers a heartfelt story full of love and all the ups and downs that come with it. Characters you'll love and a town that makes you feel welcome and at home add a small town feel to this book. Humor, romance and some downright sexy characters make this an ideal romance read. Sam and Delinas story is one of misunderstanding and how to find your way back while dealing with family issues ( Lark rocks) and other events from the past and learning to let go and taking a chance on love. Can't wait to see more of this series!
