    No one likes being treated like a kid sister--especially by someone as sexy as Guy Donovan. So when Annie Sawyers sets out to seduce Guy once and for all, she tracks down every book about sex she can find. One of them has to work, right?

    "Nearly unlistenable"
    Overall

    Story is OK, but the narration.... Second worst narrator I've heard in nearly 75 books. (And the first sounded like Janet Reno!) It's amazing the difference in quality of readers that are found in these books. What are they thinking???

    Todd Aston III's reputation as a playboy preceded him; he wore power as seamlessly as he wore his custom-cut suits. But Marina Nelson had promised her sister-who was marrying Todd's cousin-that she'd help him plan the perfect wedding. And somehow, between tasting cakes and modeling wedding dresses, Marina discovered that she wanted Todd-and that Todd wanted her. She was powerless to prevent the inevitable.

    Judy says: "Nice ending to the series"
    "PUL-EESE! Brilliant scientist???"
    Overall

    The heroine is supposed to be a multi-advance degreed scientist, yet she's not aware that condoms aren't 100% effective? Are you kidding me? It's these type of idiot plots that can ruin an otherwise good story. This is the third of the series, and while it was OK, these sisters just seemed so stupid I really didn't care what happened to them.

    One week of mind-blowing sex on a beautiful Caribbean island. Of all the business proposals financial tycoon Dominic Saxon has heard, Taylor Steele's is definitely the most tempting. All Taylor wants in return is for Dominic to father her baby. No strings, no commitments...just a mutually satisfying arrangement. Make that very satisfying. For a man with no intention of marrying again, it sounds ideal.

    CAROLYN says: "IT WAS MORE MEDIOCRE THAN MAGICAL"
    "Annoying ignorance"
    Overall

    The book was OK, but what really annoys me is when authors don't understand biology. Their supposedly brilliant characters think that the father's heritage can cause twins! This guy is so "potent" the heroine thinks "I won't be surprised if I get twins!" And this silliness is repeated at the end, where the family is speculating about another multiple pregnancy--no twins in the mother's family, so it must be from the father. Come on!!! These are brilliant business people, guys! I know I'm expecting too much, but I've seen this time and again. It's a pet peeve, I guess.

    P.I. Dane Carter assumed his murdered twin's identity to find his killer. Angel Morris was his main suspect - a woman his twin had betrayed. Now Dane could destroy her trust again. By falling in love with her...

    L.D. says: "The P. I. Series on Audio"
    "OK. but so wrong.."
    Overall

    The story was entertaining, unbelievable as others have mentioned. Foster obviously has never breastfed and she is ignorant of (or wants her characters to be) genetics--twins never run on the fathers' side. And the guy would have been drenched in real life (if you've breastfed you know what I mean). I don't expect these novels to be science lessons, but I also hope they'll be idiot-free.

    Tory Bodeen grew up in a small, rundown house where her father ruled with an iron fist and a leather belt - and where her dreams and talents had no room to flourish. But she had Hope - who lived in the big house, just a short skip away, and whose friendship allowed Tory to be something she wasn't allowed to be at home: a child. But after Hope's brutal murder, Tory's life fell apart. Now grown, she's trying to find a measure of peace. But Hope's killer is still nearby.

    paula lewis says: "Good and Bad"
    "AWFUL narrator for romantic fiction"
    Overall

    The narrator sounds just like Janet Reno. Terrible choice for a romantic novel. Although I appreciate the non-use of fake accents.
