    One night changed my life forever. Beau Bennett has been my best friend since I can remember. He was my first crush before everything came crashing down, and now he wants more, but it's more than I can give him. Things are different now. I wish I could tell him why, but I can't. I haven’t told anyone. I never knew how much I really needed him until the day he left for college, and I was completely alone.

    Where does When It Rains rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I think this may be the best book I have read/listened to EVER!!!!!!!! Loved it!!!!!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of When It Rains?

    I loved the napkins..... I will leave it at that ......don't want to give anything away. But there were so many more too.


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

    She did a great job.......but I think... usually if it is a good narration, its always better listening to the books... it makes the characters seem more real, life like.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Oh my, the whole book moved me! I cried soooooo much, this is a keep forever book!


    Any additional comments?

    The three people, Beau, Asher and Kate were all very likable, and I was torn between who to want to see together. But in the end, it worked out as best it could under the circumstances.I would definetly recommend this book, its a keeper!!!!!!!

    Genevieve McInnis is locked behind the fortified walls of McHugh Keep, captive of a cruel laird who takes great pleasure in ruining her for any other man. Yet when Bowen Montgomery storms the gates on a mission of clan warfare, Genevieve finds that her spirit is bent but not broken. Still, her path toward freedom remains uncertain. Unable to bear the shame of returning to a family that believes her dead or to abandon others at the keep to an imposing new laird, Genevieve opts for the peaceful life of an abbess. But Bowen's rugged sensuality stirs something deep inside her that longs to be awakened by his patient, gentle caress - something warm, wicked, and tempting.

    Haven Antonelli and Carmine DeMarco grew up under vastly different circumstances.

    Haven Antonelli and Carmine DeMarco have been through a lot. Haven was taken in by Carmine's father, and with his family's help, she escaped a gruesome fate. However, saving Haven from the dark intentions of a mafia family cost Carmine a steep price: He was forced to swear loyalty to them. Now, still passionately in love, Carmine and Haven must face the fall-out of Carmine's forced service, as Haven discovers terrifying secrets about the family that enslaved both her and her mother - and why she matters so much in this intricate web of lies.

    When spontaneous and carefree meets cautious and responsible, falling in love can get just a little Twisted

    There are two kinds of people in this world: the ones who look first, and the ones who leap. I’ve always been more of a looker. A planner. Cautious. Then I met Drew Evans. He was so persistent. So sure of himself. He made it easy to leap with him.

    Did you think Drew and I were going to ride off into the sunset and live happily ever after? So did I. But life is about choices, and Drew already made his. In fact, he tried to decide for the both of us—but you know that’s not my style. So I came back to Greenville, to spend some time alone . . . sort of.

    Because old habits die hard, and sometimes you have to go back to where you began before you can move ahead again.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Drew...he's funny to listen to....make you wonder if most men really feel the way he does!


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

    No, but really enjoyed her, and will listen to her again...but it is the male reader that I really love, he makes the book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, but I laughed throughout the whole book


    Any additional comments?

    Whole heartedly recommend this book.

So why has he been shuttered in his apartment for seven days, miserable and depressed? He’ll tell you he has the flu. But we all know that’s not really true. Katherine Brooks is brilliant, beautiful and ambitious. When Kate is hired as the new associate at Drew’s father’s investment banking firm, every aspect of the dashing playboy’s life is thrown into a tailspin.
