    It’s Gin Blanco's party - and you’ll cry if she wants you to. Against her better judgment, Gin is coerced into attending a high-society gala with the rest of Ashland's elite underworld. On display: the priceless art collection of her deceased nemesis, Mab Monroe, and an excess of crime-boss swagger. While not comfortable in her fancy attire, Gin gets vastly more interested in the evening’s events when a group of thieves bursts in and tries to seize the valuable, dangerous gems.

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

    If you have read the first 5 books in this series then you have already read it all! It is the same stuff OVER and over.


    Has Takedown Twenty turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Anything by Janet Evanovich YES. Its the same book (as the others) just another number.


    Which character – as performed by Lorelei King – was your favorite?

    Ranger. It is WAY past time to have just a series about Ranger.

    Yes! I love Liz, and that good 'ole country boy Brooks.

    Her job description is the "tracking and apprehension of mentally-fractured killers". What this really means in FBI profiler Jace Valchek's brave new world - one in which only one percent of the population is human - is that a woman's work is never done. And real is getting stranger every day. Jace has been ripped from her reality by David Cassius, the vampire head of the NSA. He knows that she's the best there is in the business, and David needs her help in solving a series of gruesome murders of vampires and werewolves.

    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

    What did you like best about Reflected in You? What did you like least?

    There was nothing I really liked. It was just a OK listen. This book reminded me of 50 shades with less spankings and a gay BFF roommate. Oh and two people with 'issues' not one.


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

    A lot of things


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Jill Redfield?

    Yes


    Could you see Reflected in You being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Bad-boy rock star Seger Hughes hit rock bottom after a near-fatal tragedy at his concert. He hates how his life has spun out of control. After changing his appearance and his name, he transforms into a different man: Mel Summers. Now he just needs a place to hide out from rabid fans and paparazzi. An isolated cliffside mansion is perfect. Ashley Bristol, his only neighbor, is blind - and her assistant is a classical music fan. They have no clue who he really is, but someone else does and she's waited her whole life to be with him.

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

    I am 29. So maybe someone a lot older than me would enjoy this book. I first read the RAVE reviews on this book and gave it a shot. The reviews were wrong. This book was just ... "eh.." not even ok.


    What was most disappointing about Kresley Cole’s story?

    The first 7 hours seemed to be bogged down with lifeless details and eventually lead up to a lackluster finish. I was over it an hour into the book.


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

    Dissappointed. The reviews and cover art tricked me.

    I used to murder people for money, but lately it’s become more of a survival technique. Once an assassin, always an assassin. So much for being plain old Gin Blanco. With every lowlife in Ashland gunning for me, I don’t need another problem, but a new one has come to town anyway. Salina might seem like a sweet Southern belle, but she’s really a dangerous enemy whose water elemental magic can go head-to-head with my own Ice and Stone power.

    Anything that has to do with the badass Gin. Gin, like the liquor that is. She is a simple southern girl with some extraordinary gifts.


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

    No I have not, but I love her voice. Espically with that deep southern draw.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is pretty awesome. I love the narrators deep southern draw and sassy attitude. I can not wait for the next in the series!
