    It's been months since Brian Sinclair, lead guitarist for the famous rock band Sinners, composed anything. Unable to write the music that once flowed so naturally, Brian is lost without his musical mojo. But when sexy psychology professor Myrna Evans comes on tour to study groupie mentality, Brian may have found the spark he needs to reignite his musical genius. When lust turns to love, will Brian be able to convince Myrna that what they have is more than just a fling, and that now that he's found his heart's muse, he doesn't want to live without her?

    Would you consider the audio edition of Backstage Pass to be better than the print version?

    I have never read the print version but this audiobook was great. The narrator was wonderful and I can't wait to download the next one.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Backstage Pass?

    I can't pick one out, there were too many.


    What about Justine O. Keef’s performance did you like?

    She is great. I've never listened to her before but I will put her on my favorite list.


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

    Some part were a little beyond my verson of normal and not something I would do or want to do but the way it was told kept looking forward to what would happen next.

    Story

    This story just didn't have enough to keep my attention. I ended up only listening about 1/2 way through. They were high school sweethearts, they broke up so she could go to NY and dance. They meet again at her mother's funeral and get back together. All this was done by the halfway point. I didn't see any reason to keep listening to see what would pull them apart and then back together again. I figured it would be a stupid misunderstanding. So maybe you don't go by my review since I didn't complete the book. I like Kristen Proby and enjoyed other books in the "With Me" series just not this one. Narration was just okay too but that may be the material they had to read.

    Meet Shane Baxter. Sexy, dark, and dangerous, Bax isn't just from the wrong side of the tracks, he is the wrong side of the tracks. A criminal, a thug, and a brawler, he was the master of bad choices, until one such choice landed him in prison for five years. Now Bax is out and looking for answers, and he doesn't care what he has to do or who he has to hurt to get them. But there's a new player in the game, and she's much too innocent, much too soft…and standing directly in his way.

    Story

    I loved all the Marked Men books and was hoping it would continue with the new series unfortunately it didn't (at least for me.) I didn't have a problem with Bax (Shane) having a rough past but she wrote it into the story too much or too often. He was "bad" I got it so you don't have to keep telling me - I didn't need to be reminded in every chapter. Dovie (hate the name - reminds me too much of Lovie) was okay as well. This book didn't have the sexual chemistry of the Marked Men books. They met, he asked her if she would have sex with him and she said okay. That was it. The narration is the only thing that saved it for me (or got me to listen to the end without turning it off.) I'm hoping this series will get better.

    When Hanna Bergstrom receives a lecture from her overprotective brother about neglecting her social life and burying herself in grad school, she's determined to tackle his implied assignment: get out, make friends, start dating. And who better to turn her into the sultry siren every man wants than her brother's gorgeous best friend, Will Sumner, venture capitalist and unapologetic playboy?

    Will and Hannah have a sweet story. I love Hannah's nick-name Ziggy and it was fun watching Will transform from a player into someone that she could trust. As someone that is also a runner I enjoyed their early morning workout meetings. The text messaging conversations had me laughing out loud. I had so much fun listening to this book and really enjoyed the narration. Don't hesitate on using a credit for this book, it is well worth it!!

    Whip-smart, hardworking, and on her way to an MBA, Chloe Mills has only one problem: her boss, Bennett Ryan. He’s exacting, blunt, inconsiderate - and completely irresistible. A beautiful bastard. Bennett has returned to Chicago from France to take a vital role in his family’s massive media business. He never expected that the assistant who’d been helping him from abroad was the gorgeous, innocently provocative - completely infuriating - creature he now has to see every day. Despite the rumors, he’s never been one for a workplace hookup. But Chloe’s so tempting he’s willing to bend the rules....

    Wow, just wow. This book shocked the hell out of me the way it started and it just kept going. This takes the line between love and hate into a whole new place - a very good place. I have read all the books in the Beautiful series and this is by far the best. Great characters with strong female leads. Well worth a credit.

But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation - and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out - Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume - her sweet, filthy fling - to France for the summer and just…play.

    I loved this book, so much that I have listened to it twice! Christina Lauren is one of my favorite authors and I have every one of her books. This story is a crazy ride with great sex and wonderful love found in unexpected circumstances. I didn't hate the narrator but she talked in waves. When listening she would go up/down throughout the book and it sometimes got irritating. I can't for the next one!!.

Braden and Joss are some of my favorite characters. Samantha Young will be getting all of my credits since I'll be downloading all of her books from this point forward!

    Leaving Hannah was the biggest mistake of Marco's life - something he has deeply regretted for years. So when fate reunites them, he refuses to let her go without a fight. Determined to make her his, Marco pursues Hannah, reminding her of all the reasons they're meant to be together. But just when Marco thinks they're committed to a future together, Hannah makes a discovery that unearths the secret pain she's been hiding from him - a secret that could tear them apart before they have a real chance to start over again.

The narrator is excellent, I love to listen to her and she did a great job with both the male and female characters. Very credit worthy.

    Story

    Well I finally figured out what the issue is with these books! I love Kristen Ashley and her books but I have read most of them. I downloaded Wild Man and only got about 1/2 way through and stopped listening. Thinking it was the story and knowing I love the author I decided to download Motorcycle Man. Again, I'm about 4 hours in and have lost interest. I finally realized that I just hate the narrator. I just don't like the hardcore northern accent (or what you would call a Long Island accent) and it screws up the story for me. (Sorry if I offend any people from the north.) Anyway, her accent took away from the story, it may not for others but we all have our own taste and this just isn't mine. I'll keep this narrator on my do not download list.

    Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.

    You know I thought this was going to be a really good book but for me it was WAY to drawn out. They talked about having sex for about 96% of the book at the end, the last 4% I wished they would stop. I didn't find it as funny as others and I'm sorry I wasted my credit on something that I am now so glad is over. The narrator was great so at least it had one positive.

    Story

    I loved this story although the author really, really, really drew out the love scenes. You pretty much guess why from the onset (although it is not confirmed until near the end). They talked about almost having sex for 80% of the book so when they finally get together you know something bad is about to happen to change it. When Cam gets the news you really hurt for her since she has had such crappy luck with guys in her short life. This book will take you on an emotional roller coaster and the characters will stick in your mind for days. I can't wait until this author's next book. Well done!!
