  • White Lines

    • UNABRIDGED (19 hrs and 27 mins)
    • By Tracy Brown
    • Narrated By Allyson Johnson
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Jada left home at the age of sixteen, running from her own demons and the horrors of physical abuse inflicted by her mother’s boyfriend. She partied hard, and life seemed good when she was with Born, the neighborhood kingpin whose name was synonymous with money, power, and respect. But all his love couldn’t save her from a crack addiction. Jada goes from crack addict and prostitute to survivor and back again before she finds the strength to live for herself and come out on top.

    Dornetta says: "A very compelling story"
    Would you listen to White Lines again? Why?

    I have already started listening to this book for a second time. The narrator was great and so was the story.

    What other book might you compare White Lines to and why?

    NONE. This is by far the best book I've ever read or listened to.

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

    The emotions.

    If you could rename White Lines, what would you call it?

    I would keep the same title

    Any additional comments?

    Loved this book; highly recommended!!

  • The Choir Director 2: Runaway Bride

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 46 mins)
    • By Carl Weber
    • Narrated By Jennifer Kidwell, Marc Damon Johnson, Nicole Lewis, and others

    It's been three years since Aaron Mackie succeeded in helping his friend and mentor Bishop T.K. Wilson dig his ministry out of financial ruin. Aaron is also responsible for re-energizing the almost defunct choir into something special. His success has drawn national attention, and he's on the verge of signing a huge recording contract. With his life in order, Aaron decides the time is right to propose to Tia Gregory, the church secretary who caught his eye and inspired him to shed his Tiger Woods-like tendencies.

    "Just Okay"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The book was just okay. I listened to the first novel again right before listening to this one which was a HUGE mistake. This is TOTALLY different from the first novel. I think I would have rated this one higher had he just created entirely new characters and separated it from the first choir director.

    Would you be willing to try another book from Carl Weber? Why or why not?

    I would purchase another Carl Weber book, I think he's talented. Just missed the mark on this one. Why change the personalities of all the characters we grew to love??

    Which scene was your favorite?

    hmmmm I don't really have a favorite scene.

    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I probably would go see it if it were a move. Mainly to just support the author. He's put out great work.

    Any additional comments?

    I have no additional comments.

  • 32 Candles: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 13 mins)
    • By Ernessa T. Carter
    • Narrated By Adenrele Ojo

    Davie—an ugly duckling growing up in small-town Mississippi—is positive her life couldn’t be any worse. She has the meanest mother in the South, possibly the world, and on top of that, she’s pretty sure she’s ugly. Just when she’s resigned herself to her fate, she sees a movie that will change her life—Sixteen Candles. But in her case, life doesn’t imitate art.

    Stephanie says: "WOW."
    If you could sum up 32 Candles in three words, what would they be?

    This book was great in every aspect and I highly recommend it. The character development was great, the story line was great and filled with humor and overall I just loved it. This story should be turned into a movie.

  • I’d Rather Be with You

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 47 mins)
    • By Mary B. Morrison
    • Narrated By Cary Hite
    • Whispersync for Voice-ready

    Nursing wealthy businessman Chicago DuBois back to health was the least Loretta Lovelace figured she could do. After all, it was her bet that set off Loretta’s stalker - and put Madison’s husband at death’s door. And with Madison out of the country, Loretta couldn’t resist looking after Chicago’s interests and reigniting his passion for life - in and out of bed. But now Madison wants to take back what’s no longer hers, and that’s a mistake Loretta plans to make her regret. With a baby on the way and a family empire to save, Madison knows it’s past time to make some tough decisions.

    Tosha says: "Just Ok. Ameture writing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mary B. Morrison again?


    What didn’t you like about Cary Hite’s performance?

    I normally love Cary Hite's performances, but this book was his worst!

    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from I’d Rather Be with You?

    I would re-write the entire story!

    Any additional comments?

    I wish they would have taken their time and written a quality sequel!
