There is never enough time for great books! I love the ones that suck you in from the first minutes but I have also learned to love the ones that take a little longer to warm up to.

    Story
    If you could sum up Fifty Shades Darker in three words, what would they be?

    I couldn't believe how book 1 ended.....so much of a cliffhanger I stopped at the next McDonalds to download book 2. And book 3.....wow, suspense and satisfaction of the story but like so many of my friends that have also read the books, now I'm on Fifty Shades withdrawal. While I may never find my "Christian" and I will never be as beautiful as Anna, this was "the" best story I have read in a real long time. The story is more about relationship development than sex....but oh was it tantalizing sex. In a lot of ways, it's a familiar story but E L James puts enough fresh stuff in it that it leaves you on the edge of your seat, always wanting more.

    As for the movie I hear they're considering....I don't see how it could even compare to the book in many ways, but yes, I'd go see it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kate - I can really relate to her "rebel" nature and her thirst for answers...yet her shy/unsure and caring nature.


    Have you listened to any of Becca Battoe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This was the first one.


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

    I laughed a lot. I loved Kate's "inner goddess" the most! She was a hoot!

    Bounty hunter Stephanie Plum is back, packing a whole lot of attitude. This time around, she's on the trail of Kenny Mancuso, a boy from the working-class burg of Trenton, New Jersey, who has just shot his best friend. Fresh out of the Army and suspiciously wealthy, Mancuso's also distantly related to Joe Morelli, a vice cop with questionable ethics, a libido in permanent overdrive, and a habit of horning in on Stephanie's investigations.

    What did you love best about Two for the Dough?

    This a very entertaining series. It's both easy to listen to and fun. I love the characters and how they interact with one another. Stephanie's family, especially Grandma Maser is a hoot.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I'm not sure this is an


    What aspect of C. J. Critt’s performance would you have changed?

    Some of the voices are hokey.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen to books on my long commute to and from work. It makes the drive go by faster and I never dread the drive.
