    Again, the only reason why I scored it so high was because I kept the audiobook at a faster speed, instead of the normal speed. If I kept it at the NORMAL speed, I think I would have been pissed and seriously would have wanted my $$ back. However, keeping at a FASTER speed did the trick. I was still captivated, is it possible to have that much sex? Holy Crap!! CRAZY!! Yet so intriguing. KEEP IT ON THE HIGHER SPEED TO GET THROUGH IT!! THAT IS THE ONLY WAY!!

    As a healer, he knows her body. But it's her heart he wants. For a thousand years, Gideon has healed his people. And as the oldest surviving male of his race, his wisdom has always been respected without question. But Gideon knows that even he is vulnerable to the powerful, primitive desires that befall his kind during Hallowed moons---and nine years ago that truth was hammered home when he found himself claiming Magdalena, the Demon King's sister, in a wild embrace.

    I started with Jacob first and fell in love with it, although I wanted more of the conclusion but I guess the author wants you to continue on to the other books that she has written. It's so in depth that you go further into the character and you feel like your a part of it. I love this series and will continue on to the very end of the series. Don't want it to end but I can't get enough of it.

    Since time began, there have been Nightwalkers - the races of the night who live in the shadows of the moonlight. Love with humans is absolutely forbidden, and one man makes certain to uphold this ancient law: Jacob, the Enforcer. For 700 years, he has resisted temptation. But not tonight... Jacob knows the excuses his people give when the madness overtakes them and they fall prey to their lust for humans. He's heard every one and still brought the trespassers to justice. Immune to forbidden desires, uncontrollable hungers....

    Well written and comical. Loved the both characters and how they were perfectly matched for each other. The anticipation of their chemistry that lead up to their love for each other was well balanced. Totally recommend for anyone who wants to read a perfect and easy read. I loved every moment of this. Looking forward to the Second Book -- That's All I'm Saying.

    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.

    Okay the only way I could get through this audio book is to have it on the faster speed. It's way better than the regular speed. On regular speed the narrotor is AWEFUL ENTERTAINING!! YOU COULDN'T PICK SOMEONE BETTER? However, on the FASTER speed of the Audiobook, it was Hilarious yet Sensible. I got a feel of the Passion, the Lust, the Love, THE DESIRE they both felt for each other. Oh My!! It was worth it with that speed. I love love LOVE the Trilogy books on high-speed ONLY!! I seriously needed a cool shower after. WOW!!

    I loved listening to this book that was told and read by a 5 year old. The thought and the idea's of what it was like for him. This is ment to be told from a child's perspective, so if people didn't understand that.......To Each Is Own. Personally, I thought it was fantastic.

    Tim Farnsworth walks. He walks out of meetings and out of bed. He walks in sweltering heat and numbing cold. He will walk without stopping until he falls asleep, wherever he is. This curious affliction has baffled medical experts around the globe--and come perilously close to ruining what should be a happy life.

    I am so very disappointed in the ending, I don't understand the whole premise of what Josh Ferris was writing about at the end. Yes, the main character had to go through some life altering experiences, but to end it with what he did.....NOT A FAN!! I think I hated it.
