    The girl everybody loves to hate has returned to the town she'd sworn to leave behind forever. As the rich, spoiled princess of Parrish, Mississippi, Sugar Beth Carey had broken hearts, ruined friendships, and destroyed reputations. But 15 years have passed, now she's come home, broke, desperate, and too proud to show it.

    This story was one of the best love stories I’ve heard in a while. I'm not the mushy type so the sarcasm of SugerBeth was definitely my language. I would love to see a part 2 to this story because I can't seem to let the characters go. If you’re looking for a good way to spend your money, I think you've found it.

    Story

    Before A.M. Homes was born, she was put up for adoption. Her birth mother was a 22-year-old single woman who was having an affair with a much older married man with children of his own. The Mistress's Daughter is the story of what happened when, 30 years later, her birth parents came looking for her.

    Overall

    This book is absolutly painful to listen to. I read the reviews but did not listen because I thought the story would overshadow the narrator. The character voices are very annoying and the narrator seriously lacks emotion. The narrator's reading reminded me the way you would read a cake recipe. I am still trying to finish the book because I paid for it but I don't think i'm gonna make it. Don't waste your money too.

    Overall

    Ok, this was not the worst book I've heard but definitely not the best. The first few hours were taxing but I consider myself a patient person so I pushed through it. In the beginning it is difficult to tell which character is which but after the narrator gets warmed up it gets easier. I never thought it was possible but I think the book has toooo much detail and sometimes focuses too much on things that don't have an impact on the story. Ultimately it is a good story but was poorly written. It's not all bad there are some very touching moments even funny ones too. Don't take my word for it; try it, if nothing else it will help you kill some time.

    Story
    (87)

    The day Cannie Shapiro, a savvy, intelligent, plus-sized pop culture reporter, opens up a national women's magazine to find out that her ex-boyfriend has been chronicling their ex-sex life is the day her life changes forever. Good in Bed celebrates the courage of the human spirit and introduces you to a heroine you'll never forget.

    Overall

    This book was so entertaining I could not put it down. The narrator was able to give me a clear picture in my mind of each character. Yes, that is what they are supposed to do, but not all have that talent. I don't know which one impressed me more the author or the narrator. This is both a funny and at times sad story. I recommend this book for both men and women. Women, I think will Identify with the main character and Men can learn a little about how women sometimes really think.

    Meet Whitney, Taylor, and Charisse, three women who have been best friends since high school. However, this devoted troika is about to discover a wave of unexpected troubles.

    Overall

    The narrators were absolutely horrible. All three women used the wrong emotions at the wrong time and it felt like I was in 2nd grade reading again. If you can get past the poor reading then the story is not so bad but I wouldn't buy it again and there are too many other good books to spend a credit on this one.

    I had everything a woman could want... My husband, James. The house on the lake. My life. Our perfect life. And then Alex came to visit. The first time I saw my husband's best friend, I didn't like him. Didn't like how James changed when he was around, didn't like how his penetrating eyes followed me everywhere.

    Overall

    I think I was originally expecting a different type of story. I am the type of person who is strongly against marital affairs & can become very judgmental about the situation. This book allowed me to understand a different way of loving. I never see myself in a situation like this but this book was thought provoking in a powerful way. This is the first book I have ever heard from this author and I am hooked, she has a skill for telling a story both erotic and a little dirty but soft and sensitive at the same time. Zoey Winslow is the narrator for this story and also does a good job, a lot of other narrators can annoy with changing of the characters voices but this one is subtle so as not to take away from the story. This book comes highly recommended.
