    Indy Savage is a former wild child (okay, maybe not so "former") and current used-bookstore owner. Lee Nightingale is a former bad boy and now runs a private investigation service. Toss together a quiet barista with a not-so-lawful side-business, a crazy Vietnam Vet, a pothead, a drag queen, family and friends who will not mind their own business, a few stun guns, and a bag of diamonds, and mix them all up with some shootings, a high-speed chase and car bombs exploding, then hang on for your first wild Rock Chick ride.

    Story

    I looove Kristen Ashley and I've read most of her published stories, including this entire series, but I gotta say the narration wasn't a favorite of mine. I like the narrator that did her Dream Man series. Wish they could have gotten her to read this one as well.

    Susannah Jones wasn't horrible. She was actually pretty good. And I think I may have messed up by reading the book prior to getting this audio, because I already had an idea of how I wanted the story to flow and how the characters to sound in my head. But in all honesty she did do a respectable job.

    All and all I enjoyed the story. If you liked the Dream Man series you'll look this one. Fast paced story; yummy alpha males; hilarious supporting characters; and the main characters are like magnets. They're likable the the heroine is feminine without being stupid or annoyingly weak.

    I'd definitely recommend this story

    Waking up in Vegas was never meant to be like this. Evelyn Thomas' plans for celebrating her 21st birthday in Las Vegas were big. Huge. But she sure never meant to wake up on the bathroom floor with a hangover to rival the black plague, a very attractive half-naked tattooed man in her room, and a diamond on her finger large enough to scare King Kong. Now if she could just remember how it all happened.One thing is certain, being married to one of the hottest rock stars on the planet is sure to be a wild ride.

    Story

    Andi Arndt was absolutely horrible. I barely got through the first chapter listening to her. I finally decided to buy the ebook because I was bored and wanted to give the story a try. I ended up liking the book well enough. You could tell that the characters were young though, especially the heroine, but I found something to like about them both and clung to it. Luckily, it was a quick read. I don't think I'll be revisiting it again though and I'm deleting the audiobook from my library.

    Thanks to paper-thin walls and the guy’s athletic prowess, Carolyn is gaining an - um - intimate knowledge of her new neighbor's nocturnal adventures. And since Caroline is currently on a self-imposed "dating hiatus," and her neighbor is clearly lethally attractive to women, she finds her fantasies keep her awake even longer than the noise. So when the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts Simon Parker, her heard-but-never-seen neighbor.

    Story

    I was lucky enough to have read this story when it was title "Edward Wallbanger" on a fan fiction website. I loooooved it then and I LOOOOVE it now. Alice Clayton is such a great writer and I am so happy to see this story was published and then released as a audio book.

    This story is sexy and comical, filled to overflowing with one-liners and charming characters. The sexual tension practically bubbles off of the page (or from the narrator's lips) and the zingers in this story make you want to smile and chuckle, and listen to it over and over and over again.

    It is certainly worth a CREDIT, and HEAR ME NOW: ALICE CLAYTON IS A AUTHOR TO WATCH!!!

    Story

    lol.. I usually don't review books unless I think they are really terrible and I need to vent. But in this case, I decided to write my review because I totally disagree with one point the other reviewers had.

    I LIKED THE NARRATION!

    I know?! I actually enjoyed it. I hold Ashford McNab's monotone in disdain! I loathe it. The only reason I listened to the last two books was because the story-lines were appealing enough to hold my attention. Her narration however, was terrible...I have no idea who you guys were listening to. And I think it's because I wasn't overly attached to her, that I took great pleasure in seeing someone else's name in the "narrated by" column.

    I LOVED Emma Taylor's performance. I found it refreshing!..Inspired!..BRILLIANT!!....lol Ok, I'm laying it on thick, I know. But I honestly believe she did a fine job.

    Oh, and the book was great too..

    :-)

    Story

    I honestly liked this story. The story was loaded with action from the very beginning, i have to be honest and say that it didn't keep my attention initially. As the story went on though i found myself intrigued by both of the main characters, and soon found myself riveted to my seat waiting to see what would happen next. I loved the banter between all the characters. It felt natural which for me is really important.

    Now with that said lets talk about the sex. There have been soooo many people bellyaching about all the sex scenes in the book. But if you'd taken the time to read the first 3 books in the series, then you'd realize that loads of sex is standard fair in her books. I enjoyed them. I thought they were hot and intense. Exactly what I'm looking for in a romance novel. Keep it coming.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the lead female had not been so bitter and transparent. I found nothing to help me understand why the hero found her so compelling. I can understand a woman being strong and no nonsense, and even their shared history would make her caution understandable. But in the end, she only came off as bitter and unpleasant. She wasn't someone I wanted to root for. She was mostly a bitch pretending to be strong.


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

    I would've liked more chemistry between the main characters, more heat. I didn't make it to the sex so I have no idea how that turned out for them.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration seemed to only frustrate me more. I normally enjoy Anne Flosnik, but I just hated it. I'm not sure the story was meant to be read imbued with so much angst. Maybe if it sounded lighter I would've found her shooting him funny rather than stupid?


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I liked the concept. It was a great idea and original as far as historical romances go.


    Any additional comments?

    Ugh. I'll try and get through the rest, but honestly it's not looking good.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Oracle's Moon to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the way the author writes. The story is entertaining and the characters are likeable.


    What about Sophie Eastlake’s performance did you like?

    She's really good at it. It wasn't dry. Each persons personality shows through the narration and trust me, not a lot of narrators can do that...or maybe they just don't care to. She can deliver a one-liner with the best of them.


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

    I chuckled a few times. The author and narrator have a way of making the most corny lines seem cute.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a really enjoyable book. The narrator is awesome and the kids in the book are cuuuuttttteee.

    Brenna, a she-wolf Psy, was abducted by a serial killer - and returned a monster. The only person who can help her is Judd, a telekinetic and Council defector. But the passion burning between them could push them both over the edge of sanity in the third installment in Singh's breathtaking Psy-Changeling series.

    Story

    This love story was so intense that I got shivers. The need between the main characters was so thick and obvious and subtle and sweet and sexy and just everything. I could tell there was a connection before the characters realized it, but it was so subtle that I didn't feel like they were just being thrown together for no reason. Every scene was important. Nothing was wasted and that's what I love most about Nalini Singh's work. Her books are so well developed, and the characters are constantly evolving and growing together. In this one in particular. The main characters where so different that at first I was wondering how she would make it work, but midway through the book it was obvious that they were meant for one another. I've read all of the novels in this series so far and this one is by far my favorite.

    Okay, so jogging through Central Park after midnight wasn't a bright idea. But Margrit Knight never thought she'd encounter a dark new world filled with magical beings, not to mention a dying woman and a mysterious stranger with blood on his hands. Her logical, lawyer instincts told her it couldn't all be real, but she could hardly deny what she'd seen...and touched.

    Story

    I thought the story was really slow and the narrator was really bad. The story itself may have been good but I couldn't get into it. The characters weren't engaging and it took forever to get to the point. I was so disappointed midway through that I simply stopped listening and I refuse to listen again. Maybe it get's better, but I was literally falling asleep at my desk and wishing the main character could just die and that the whole thing would be over, so I'm kind of doubting it.

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

    I would recommend this book to a friend. In the simplest of terms, it's a story about normal women feeling empowered and at peace after terrible break-ups. Throw in some conspiracy, murder and cover-ups, great dialogue and punchlines, and you have this fabulous book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Fast Women?

    The china. lol If you haven't ready the book you may not get that answer, though there is a huge coffee cup on the cover. But the china in the book was everything. I've never been into china...ever..but the china and the way they felt about there china was so interesting that I find myself wanting some egg cups :/


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when Nell went apesh*t on her ex-husband in his office after finding out that he'd lied to her...classic. I can't help but grin every time I listen to it.


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

    No tears, but there was lots of laughs.


    Any additional comments?

    I haven't mentioned this yet but I LOVE Sandra Burr. She is so fantastic at what she does. Her timing and delivery was perfect and I loved listening to her read.
