  • Let Me Be the One: The Sullivans, Book 6

    In Let Me Be The One, the brand-new book in Bella Andre's New York Times and USA Today best-selling series about the Sullivan family, an unexpected friends-to-lovers romance might not only turn out to be so much hotter than anything bad-boy pro-baseball-player Ryan Sullivan has ever known...but much, much sweeter, too. When Vicki Bennett saved Ryan Sullivan's life as a teenager, it was the beginning of a close friendship that never wavered despite her failed marriage to someone else and Ryan's well-earned reputation as a ladies man.

    Would you listen to Let Me Be the One again? Why?

    Sure. I'm enjoying the entire Sullivan series. I already feel compelled to re-listen to Chase and Chloe's story all over again!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Aside from the hot, steamy sex scenes my favorite moment was when Vicky shared with Ryan about her opportunity to work in Italy. I was dreading that Vicky was going to play martyr and be self anguished about the opportunity, but she was honest and straightforward. I was relieved and felt that the author built a great character in Vicky.


    Any additional comments?

    Can't wait to hear Smith's and Naughty's stories! I believe Smith's story is out on ebook/paperback but I'm really enjoying Eva Kaminsky's narration. Will try to wait patiently for audio versions!

    The follow-up to the runaway bestsellers On Dublin Street and Down London Road. Despite her outgoing demeanor, Olivia is painfully insecure around the opposite sex - usually, she can't get up the nerve to approach guys she's interested in. But moving to Edinburgh has given her a new start, and, after she develops a crush on a sexy postgrad, she decides it's time to push past her fears and go after what she wants. Nate Sawyer is a gorgeous player who never commits, but to his close friends, he's as loyal as they come.

    Have not been disappointed with this author. I hope she writes about the other streets of Edinburgh!

    The first Hispanic and third woman appointed to the United States Supreme Court, Sonia Sotomayor has become an instant American icon. Now, with a candor and intimacy never undertaken by a sitting Justice, she recounts her life from a Bronx housing project to the federal bench, a journey that offers an inspiring testament to her own extraordinary determination and the power of believing in oneself.

    Would you listen to My Beloved World again? Why?

    Yes. Justice Sotomayor represents determination and strength. I will go to this work when I need to be reminded and inspired.


    What other book might you compare My Beloved World to and why?

    Oddly I would compare it to Eat Pray Live because both works inspired me to live my life with integrity.


    What does Rita Moreno bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She's perfect. No other narrator could better represent the Justice's voice.

    What did you love best about Naked Edge?

    I thought Pamela Clare did an excellent job at giving us just a small insight to Native American culture.


    Any additional comments?

    Kaleo has to have one of the sexiest voice which I have enjoyed in the first 3 i-series novels, but I hesitant because I was worried that the voices of Native Americans would be misrepresented. Kaleo did an amazing job and found his inflections and accents to be spot on. I hope he actually reads this review so that he knows that I truly appreciated his narration.

    Paige Hart is blessed and cursed with a large, loving and...colorful Southern family. As the only lawyer in the clan, she can't say no when her cousin needs her help in a messy, no-holds-barred divorce. Tax attorney Paige squares off with Ross "the Snake" Bennet t- one of the slickest divorce lawyers in the county. The case is going as well as an acrimonious, zinger-filled, wrangle of epic proportions can go until exposure to an infectious bug with an unusual side effect lands both lawyers in quarantine together.

    Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different - more serious, more personal - and she's sure it'll be her breakout book…if it ever sees the light of day. Zachary Easton holds Nora's fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: He wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards - in six weeks - or it's no deal. Nora's grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining…and shockingly arousing.

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

    I wouldn't classify this in the Romance section, but I'm glad I found it in this category. I think this book is more about learning to love and forgive oneself. You have the two main characters learning to work with each other, and in that process and sexual tension, they learn more about their true selves than "falling in love." It was well written and captivating.

    What made the experience of listening to All Summer Long the most enjoyable?

    I like the fact that Tanya Eby has been the sole narrator for this series. The characters voices don't vary from book to book, which is a great comfort to this listener.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of All Summer Long?

    I loved Charlie's vulnerability and strength. Clay was a true gentle man.


    What does Tanya Eby bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Consistency!

    Instead of saying "I do" to Mr. Irresistible, Lucy Jorik hitches a ride on the back of a beat-up motorcycle with a rough looking, bad-tempered stranger who couldn't be more foreign to her privileged existence. While the world searches for her, Lucy must search for herself, and she quickly realizes that her customary good manners are no defense against a man who's raised rudeness to an art form. Lucy needs to toughen up - and fast. Her great escape takes her to his rambling beach house on a Great Lakes island. Here, she hopes to find a new direction...and to unlock the secrets of this man who knows so much about her.

    Would you ever listen to anything by Susan Elizabeth Phillips again?

    The narration wasn't bad it was really the content of this work. I was so excited to see that SEP had come out with a new novel and utterly disappointed with such a weak female lead. The character was completely obnoxious, immature and total brat. In the end she was even disgustingly manipulative. There was nothing redeeming about her.

    What disappointed you about Destiny?

    I couldn't listen to the entire story because the narration was so awful. Her depiction of the women's voices would have been better if done by Snookie.

    Michelle Sanderson may appear to be a strong, independent woman, but on the inside, she’s still the wounded girl who fled home years ago. A young army vet, Michelle returns to the quaint Blackberry Island Inn to claim her inheritance and recover from the perils of war. Instead, she finds the owner’s suite occupied by the last person she wants to see. Carly Williams and Michelle were once inseparable, until a shocking betrayal destroyed their friendship. And now Carly is implicated in the financial disaster lurking behind the inn’s cheerful veneer.

    Cynthia L. Powers says: "Good story. Wooden performance."

    If you could sum up Barefoot Season in three words, what would they be?

    I would say this book is about love and how it is integral with how you view yourself, your relationship with men, and in this case your best friend. The characters are well developed and you learn to love them especially because we can relate to their flaws (as well as strengths).
