    Where does Beautiful Creatures rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 5 for sure.


    What other book might you compare Beautiful Creatures to and why?

    I don't know. Definitely not Twilight. I saw people saying that in the earlier comments and it almost made me not buy it. I 'm so glad I did! I couldn't get through the first chapter of Twilight, but I couldn't put this one down!!


    Which character – as performed by Kevin T. Collins – was your favorite?

    They are all so amazing. He does an amazing job. If I had to pick though, I would say Link or Ama.


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

    ABSOLUTELY!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Read this. The attention to the setting and all the characters are amazing. I listened to the entire series and plan to listen again soon. Kevin T. Collins did such an awesome job too!!

    You’ve lost your job as a department store lingerie buyer, your car’s been repossessed, and most of your furniture and small appliances have been sold off to pay last month’s rent. Now the rent is due again. And you live in New Jersey. What do you do? If you’re Stephanie Plum, you become a bounty hunter. But not just a nickel-and-dime bounty hunter; you go after the big money. That means a cop gone bad. And not just any cop. She goes after Joe Morelli, a disgraced former vice cop who is also the man that took her virginity....

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

    I do constantly! I recommend this series to most of my friends. We all like the cop shows on TV and this series reminds me of Law and Order or something.


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

    YES. I love the incorporation of Wicca. Very good plot in this one.


    Which character – as performed by Susan Ericksen – was your favorite?

    II love them all! I cant pick just one favorite, but her narration of the men, Rourke particularly, is very impressive. I plan on getting all of the books!


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

    Yes! I listen to them at work so it makes me excited to go back to work the next morning to see what happens!

    Kayla Maxwell is eager to shed her slasher-flick bimbo image - and she plans to do just that in her new role on daytime's most popular soap. With a chance to showcase her dramatic range, Kayla will be able to wash away the lingering betrayal and public humiliation left by her controlling, philandering ex-boyfriend. Sean Barrett, the son of an influential, award-winning actor, is the hottest soap star in the country. Paired on-screen with the talented and beautiful Kayla Maxwell, Sean is determined to keep her at arm's length, burned before by fame-seeking actresses who had no qualms about using him to get to his famous father.

    Where does Love in the Afternoon rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This book isn't something I would usually buy, but I got it on sale and am pleasantly surprised. It's not my favorite book every but I will probably listen to it again and don't regret buying it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the romance, but I really liked that there was some mystery involved too. It's kind of predictable, but still very enjoyable.


    What about Gia St. Claire’s performance did you like?

    I liked her when she was narrating Kayla, but I don't really like her voice for the men in the book. Shawn is supposed to be sexy and I feel a voice I imagined in my head if I was reading it would be better.

The detailed mass e-mail to Mike's family, friends, and clients blows up in her face, and before one can say "instant urban legend", Lacey has become the pariah of her small Kentucky town and a media punch line....

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.

    Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel’s story is about to be completely rewritten. Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green’s most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

    Make your mark on the world, no matter how small.

    I usually read paranormal books, so I don't know why I bought this one. Probably all the rave reviews. It is definitely one of my very favorites from Audible. I listen to them while I'm at work and I had trouble keeping back tears at some parts! That being said, it's an amazing and touching story. I will listen to it again soon.

Now Sophie is defenseless, alone, and at the mercy of her sworn enemies - the Brannicks, a family of warrior women who hunt down the Prodigium. Or at least that's what Sophie thinks, until she makes a surprising discovery. The Brannicks know an epic war is coming, and they believe Sophie is the only one powerful enough to stop the world from ending.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jenna and Cal, because they are so likable.


    What about Cris Dukehart’s performance did you like?

    I liked her different voices for each character. In past audiobooks I have noticed sometimes you cant tell the different characters from their voice. Cris does a great job with the accents.


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

    I may have laughed. I listen to them at work, so I cant exactly get too emotional while listening, but I was emotionally invested in the story.


    Any additional comments?

    READ THE SERIES. I could not stop listening and was so sad it ended at three books.

    What other book might you compare Perfect Chemistry to and why?

    Romeo and Juliet I guess. Or any other story of forbidden love.


    Which character – as performed by Roxanne Hernandez and Blas Kisic – was your favorite?

    I liked alex's character the most. Blas Kisic's voice it nice and I found Roxanne's voice a little annoying at first but I got used to it.


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

    When Shelly praised Britney for standing up to their parents.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the book much more than I thought I would. Just a warning that there is some harsh language, so if that bothers you, you might be offended in some parts. I loved the idea that the main characters are connected even though they come from completely different worlds.
