    The loss of control. The fear of desire. Allie always thought that mysteriously sexy rancher Caleb Johnson wanted her as much as she wanted him. But since he never acted on it, she was ready to admit defeat. Until the night she was attacked by a vicious wolf, only to be rescued by another. In the triumphant, bloodied male, there was something Allie recognized---the baritone growl, the mesmerizing eyes, the inexplicable animal attraction. Her savior was Caleb.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I am not sure if I know anyone to recommend this to.


    What could Sarah McCarty have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Maybe a little more character development. I found I did not care.


    What didn’t you like about Tavia Gilbert’s performance?

    I am not convinced that the performance was the bad part.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Indifference. Boredom.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Frost Burned to be better than the print version?

    Yes. You have a fabulous narrator reading this series. If I would have read this to myself I would have heard the narrators voice in my head anyway because I got the audible version of all the prior books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Her closest friends knew something was wrong right away when she started taking orders.


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

    Her voices are wonderful. I have heard her read the whole story and it just wouldn't be the same with anyone else. I actually look for books based on the work she has done.


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

    Yes, but the whole Mercy Thompson series is one of my favorites. I have listened to all of them more than once.

    Deep in the stacks of Oxford's Bodleian Library, young scholar Diana Bishop unwittingly calls up a bewitched alchemical manuscript in the course of her research. Descended from an old and distinguished line of witches, Diana wants nothing to do with sorcery; so after a furtive glance and a few notes, she banishes the book to the stacks. But her discovery sets a fantastical underworld stirring, and a horde of daemons, witches, and vampires soon descends upon the library.

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

    I would definitely refer it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Discovery of Witches?

    Matthew's halloween in the states with the young kids seems memorable. He has a soft spot for young vampires.


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

    This is the first book by Jennifer that I have heard. I definitely will look into some of her other performances.


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

    There is no way possible to listen in one sitting. It took me three days and I thought that was equivalent to "I can't put it down"


    Any additional comments?

    I will be buying the sequel shortly since it was not wrapped up at the end of this book.

    Story
    Where does Iron Kissed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I had to download the next in the series when I finished this book. This book is right in line with the first two books in this series. I would read this series in order if I were you.


    What other book might you compare Iron Kissed to and why?

    I guess it is like Stephanie Plum with paranormal shapeshifters. The humor is there and the struggle between the men in her life makes it real similar.


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

    I have heard a Stephanie Plum book from her. It does compare well which is amazing since people in Washington do not sound like people from Jersey.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I liked how she handled with Jessie got hurt. It shows she is already a big part of that pack.

    Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over 10 years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows that her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire - and suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.

    What did you love best about Naked in Death?

    I liked the world the author created in the future where gun shot wounds are foreign to them.


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

    The plot kept me interested in seeing if I was right about who the villian was.


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

    I haven't heard other books she has done.


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

    No extreme reactions, but it is possible since the subject matter is kind of upsetting.
