    It's been ten years since clean-cut, sexy-as-hell police officer Todd Keenan had a white-hot fling with Erin Brown, the provocative, wild rocker chick next door. Their power exchange in the bedroom got under his skin. But love wasn't in the cards just yet.... Now, life has thrown the pair back together. But picking up where they left off is tough, in light of a painful event from Erin's past. As Todd struggles to earn her trust, their relationship takes an unexpected and exciting turn when Todd's best friend, Ben, ends up in their bed - and all three are quite satisfied in this relationship without a name.

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

    I would recommend that they read this book first before buying audio version. I love audiobooks, I have over 600. Narration can make a mediocre book excellent and can ruin an excellent book. But everyone has different tastes for narration. I found her narration to be overly dramatic and over-the-top. Her male voices were just horrible for me.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love Lauren Dane's books. This series is one of my favs. She creates great characters, they are very realistic and sympathetic.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A different narrator would have improved this book greatly for me. I won't be able to finish listening to this book. The narration is just to painful to listen to for me. I'm glad I have the kindle version.

    After news of his mother's weak heart summons him home, globetrotting journalist Roman Chandler loses a coin toss with his brothers that determines who will relinquish his bachelor status to give their mother a grandchild. Roman decides to settle down without giving up his travel-intensive job, and as one of the most handsome men in town, he can have his pick of the local women - except for Charlotte Bronson, his high-school crush.

    "Cute Story Ruined By Narrator"
    Overall

    I thought the story was very cute, but I couldn't finish listening. I got about half-way thru the story. I agree with previous reviewer, he ruined the female characters voices. It made them sound cartoonish. Usually I can muddle thru, but this time I just couldn't listen any longer.

    In 6 Rainier Drive listeners are whisked away to Cedar Cove, Washington, where Justine and Seth Gunderson are feeling the shock of the arson that destroyed their restaurant. They're eager to move on, but divided over which direction to take.

    "An Excellent Romance/Family Drama"
    Overall

    6 Rainier Drive is Book 6 in the Cedar Cove Series of books written by Debbie Macomber. This book has many characters, however if you read/listen to this series in order starting with the first book in the series (16 Lighthouse Road Cedar Cove Book 1)the characters are very easy to keep track of and understand. I have really enjoyed the characters in this series. I thought Ms. Macomber developed the characters with depth. The story line was extremely interesting and she inserted very interesting social interests and commentaries (such as animal rights and developing medical clinics in a local area)in a very low key way. Ms Macomber cares deeply about family values and that certainly came across in each book in this series. I am looking forward to reading book 7 in this series and will be looking forward to book 8 which is to be released in the fall. My only slight dissapointment with this book is that it is not narrated by Sandra Burr who did an excellent narration in the Cedar Cove series 1-5. Andrea Gallo does an adequate narration of this audio book, but nearly as good as Ms Burr's narration.

    In Kate's world, pleasure and melancholy are close neighbors. Rules for Saying Goodbye follows Kate as she makes the unlikely migration from suburban California to a New England prep school, and then to Manhattan. There, she enjoys a dissipated life of bartending and writing novels, falling in love with the wrong boys. Her mother is desperate for Kate to marry someone, anyone, so she can be sure that someone else will love her daughter after she dies. But Kate has other ideas.

    Overall

    I agree with the critics comment that; the list of the rules for saying goodbye is the best part of the book. I did not think that she was a super satirist. I felt she wrote as a self-centered immature young woman. Her insights about her friends and family were less than adequate and embarrassingly immature. Her relationship with her war correspondent boyfriend was horrifyingly self-centered. The narration was adequate, not great; she sounded like a whiney teenager. I should know better than to listen to a book narrated by the author. I just barely made it through to the end of the book.
