I like any books that hook you within the first chapter. If a love story is involved even better.

    Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership. In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires?

    Benoibe says: "Surprised! SPECTACULAR AND SEXY!"

    Overall

    I feel in love with the charatcters in this book. It would be impossible not to. The story line kept me on the edge of my seat. Tavia Gilbert does an amazing job acting this book out. It is hard to believe she was the only one reading. She was a joy to listen to. Loved it!!!

    Ethan Wate used to think of Gatlin, the small Southern town he had always called home, as a place where nothing ever changed. Then he met mysterious newcomer Lena Duchannes, who revealed a secret world that had been hidden in plain sight all along. A Gatlin that harbored ancient secrets beneath its moss-covered oaks and cracked sidewalks.

    My favorite is every minute of it all.

    Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Beautiful Creatures to be better than the print version?

    I think so. I melted into the story because Kevin T. Collins did such a great job.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Beautiful Creatures?

    I honestly can not pick just one.


    What does Kevin T. Collins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His emotion and accents are amazing. Every character has a different voice it is truly amazing. I can't believe he did the book by himself.


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

    Yes and then wanted another one to listen to all in one setting and another.


    Any additional comments?

    Do not get this book if you are expecting it to be like the movie. Because, this book is 800 million times BETTER than the movie. If you do get this book you will not regret any moment of it.

    It's been months since Aria learned of her mother's death. Months since Perry became Blood Lord of the Tides, and months since Aria last saw him.

    Now Aria and Perry are about to be reunited. It's a moment they've been longing for with countless expectations. And it's a moment that lives up to all of them. At least at first. Then it slips away. The Tides don't take kindly to former Dwellers like Aria. And the tribe is swirling out of Perry's control. With the Aether storms worsening every day, the only remaining hope for peace and safety is the Still Blue. But does this haven truly exist?

    Where does Through the Ever Night rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It would rank among my top five list of series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Through the Ever Night?

    I love when Aria learns how to use her gift.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene is when Perry and Aria run to each other's arms.


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

    I laughed and cried. It was an epic emotional roller coaster.

    Since she’d been on the outside, she’d survived an Aether storm, she’d had a knife held to her throat, and she’d seen men murdered. This was worse. Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland - known as The Death Shop - are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent, electrified energy storms will. She’s been taught that the very air she breathes can kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild - a savage - and her only hope of staying alive.

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

    Yes, I have told many people about this book. This is the first book I have listened to with a split narrator. I now have found a lot of my favorite series are now doing this in the last few books. I love it. It is like hearing two stories at once.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Perry! How could you not love him. I am crazy about his voice.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite was the compound they get to and Aria finds out that Perry is trying to help her.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    After what they have both been through they don't want to trust or depend on anyone, least of all each other, but do they have a choice.

    Fans of the Divergent series by No. 1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth will be thrilled by The Transfer , the first of four new short stories told from Four’s perspective. Each brief story explores the world of the Divergent series through the eyes of the mysterious but charismatic Tobias Eaton, revealing previously unknown facets of his personality, backstory and relationships.

    What did you love best about The Transfer: A Divergent Story?

    I like that it is from Fours point of view.


    What other book might you compare The Transfer: A Divergent Story to and why?

    I would compare it to Dream Dark: a Beautiful Creatures story, told from Link's point of view. I love to get another's point of view.


    What about Aaron Stanford’s performance did you like?

    Everything he did a great job.


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

    I just loved it all.

    Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath. Now she’s returned - to her old life, her family, her boyfriend - before she’s banished back to the underworld... this time forever. She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can’t find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists. Nikki longs to spend these precious months forgetting the Everneath and trying to reconnect with her boyfriend, Jack, the person most devastated by her disappearance - and the one person she loves more than anything.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not really, nothing about the story really hooked me. I wanted to like it but just couldn't get into it. I kept waiting for it to just be over.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Brodi Ashton? Why or why not?

    Maybe, but not from this series. I just didn't care for this story line


    What didn’t you like about Amy Rubinate’s performance?

    I feel like she was whining the whole time even when she wasn't trying to.


    Was Everneath worth the listening time?

    Not really.

    When 17-year-old Katy Swartz moved to West Virginia right before her senior year, she'd pretty much resigned herself to thick accents, dodgy Internet access, and a whole lot of boring, but then she spotted her hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up...until he opened his mouth. Daemon Black is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. It's hate at first sight, but when a stranger attacks her and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something...unexpected happens. The hot guy next door? Well, he's an alien.

    Story
    Would you listen to Obsidian again? Why?

    Yes I would listen to it over and over again. You want so bad to hate Daemon at first but you know he has something special, and it hooks you.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Obsidian?

    I love it when Katy dumps spaghetti all over Ash and Daemon.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene is the school dance.


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

    The whole book moved me. I really wanted to hurt Daemon a time or two.


    Any additional comments?

    It will captivate you. I have to admit that it took me a few chapters to get over Justine Eyre's voice. It has a certain tone and drag to it, but like any book you get use to it and don't notice it because you are too interested in what she is saying instead of how she is saying it.

    Daemon's determined to prove what he feels for Katy is more than a product of their bizarro connection. So she's sworn him off, even though he's running more hot than cold these days. But they've got bigger problems.The Department of Defense is here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that Katy and Daemon are linked, Katy's a goner. So is he. And there's this new boy in school who's got a secret of his own. He knows what's happened to Katy and he can help, but to do so, Katy has to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that's possible.

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

    I would recommend this to a friend as long as they were into the same type of books I am into.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I love Daemon! At first you hate him then you love him. I like those kind of guys.


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

    She does a great job with the expressing the emotion of Katy, but when she does Daemon's and the other men's voice it can be hard to tell a difference.


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

    I loved it all!


    Any additional comments?

    Just listen and get hooked!

    Young, beautiful, and successful, Elena Michaels seems to have it all. Her happy, organized life follows a predictable pattern: filing stories for her job as a journalist, working out at the gym, living with her architect boyfriend, and lunching with her girlfriends from the office. And once a week, in the dead of night, she streaks through a downtown ravine, naked and furred, tearing at the throats of her animal prey. Elena Michaels is a werewolf.

    Autumn says: "My favorite Audio title"

    Overall

    This book was the grestest. I am now Kelley Armstrong's biggest fan. I am in love with Clay now. The three main characters have the best chemistry. I laughed, I cried and I wanted more. Aasne Vigesaa's voice was so becoming. She did a wondeful job with Clay's southern accent.
