    Fiona Carlisle didn't think anything could hurt as much as finding her fiancé in bed with her sister. But receiving an invitation to the happy couple's engagement party comes a close second. Determined to prove to her family and herself that she's moved on, Fiona has every intention of attending, looking red-hot and with an even hotter man on her arm. And there's only one man who will do: renowned photographer and reputed playboy Michael Houston.

    Story
    If you could sum up IOU Sex in three words, what would they be?

    This story is about being true to yourself and standing up for your needs. Yes there is sex, two sex scenes but this is not a book for young males at all.

    Tree words would be


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    At times while setting up the story I wondered if it was too wordy for such a short book.


    What about Charise Greene’s performance did you like?

    She put the right amount of emotion in the story and characters


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

    Yes. Especially the confrontation scene.


    Any additional comments?

    The sex scenes were description but this book was about not about that. It was about he belief in herself.

    Yacht designer Cameron Quinn knows life can shift in a moment. But when he accepts his grandfather's quest—six weeks to start over from scratch—he certainly isn't expecting to be stranded in a dusty town in New Mexico. The upside? He's found himself working for a stunning private investigator…and the heat between them is hotter than the desert!

    What did you like best about The Mighty Quinns: Cameron? What did you like least?

    What I like is the least is the narrator. She sounded like she was reading a fairy tale to children, all light, and fluffy and breathless. Made the sex seems not so hot.


    If you’ve listened to books by Kate Hoffman before, how does this one compare?

    Have not listened to her books before


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Chloe Campbell?

    Erin Bennett


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    A different narrator

    Lisi’s wish list is pretty short: getting laid. Finally divorced from her philandering ex, forced to sell the historic house she loves, Lisi needs some downtime, some sexy loving, to get her back to enjoying life. However, living in a small town, where the list of available hunks is pretty limited, means getting laid is a lot easier said than done. Until Joe Roop, the new owner of her house, gives her a call....

    What disappointed you about Getting Laid?

    Was just uninspiring and unmemorable. I had to play the teaser again to try and remember it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Vonna Harper again?

    I do not know, depends on the story


    What didn’t you like about Gina Maravella’s performance?

    It was fine.


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

    disappointment. It felt incomplete and rushed.

    Chicago private investigator Kira Graceling should have just kept on walking. But her sense of duty refused to let her ignore the moans of pain coming from inside a warehouse just before dawn. Suddenly she finds herself in a world she’s only imagined in her worst nightmares.

    Ashley says: "Okay, Bones doesn't sound like my British ex but!"
    "Not a bad story but Bones' voice....."
    Overall

    Story was not bad at all, liked it best when we did not have to hear Bones. All the male narrations were not stellar but Bones voice made me want to fast forward through it. Shame really as I am sure Bones and Cat had an interesting story but I was turned off it during the preview.

    "I didn't think he wanted me. And I wasn't about to get involved with him, not after what I'd heard. Sure, Alex Kennedy was tall, dark and unbearably hot, but I've been burned before. When I solicited him to model for my erotic photography book, I didn't expect such a heated, passionate photo session. And now that we've crossed that line, our bodies aren't the only things that have been exposed."

    Candyce says: "LOVED IT!!"
    "I enjoyed it"
    Overall

    Was really hot in parts and was quite "real" her fears of his preferences and the wonder about what was stronger and finally admitting what was her ultimate fear at the end...I got it. There are some things that was introduced in the book that seemed to have no purpose but could have been a pivotal area yet was just dropped.

    Ask any woman how she's feeling. Even when things look pretty darn great from the outside, chances are that at least one thing (and it may seem minor to others) is nagging at her, making her feel less than spectacular, bringing her down: "I'm too fat. My husband doesn't help enough around the house. My friend is going to be mad if I don't call her back. Why don't my kids try harder at school? My job is less than inspiring...."

    Rachel says: "Sing-songy reader"
    "Catherine Says"
    Overall

    It was not bad. I understand the concept of the room. Helped to listen to it more than once. I did find the "Catherine said/says" all through it a bit annoying. I know they are doing this together but it makes a hard read.
