    One year and one bad relationship later, his disbelief in love-at-first-sight is stripped away the day he meets Six: a girl with a strange name and an even stranger personality. Unfortunately for Daniel, finding true love doesn’t guarantee a happily ever after - it only further threatens it. Will an unbearable secret from the past jeopardize Daniel and Six’s only chance at saving each other?

    What made the experience of listening to Finding Cinderella the most enjoyable?

    Best friends confessing their heartfelt secrets. A realistic story which took me back to high school 20+ years ago. True friendship and real love is always a great combination in any story... Love it!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was Daniel of course, always happy and cheerful. Very straightforward and direct.


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

    Haven't listened to his performances before, but absolutely love him in this book. Great Narrator, job well done. I'm definitely going to follow him from now on.


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

    Most certainly! When she revealed what happened in Italy. I was a bit surprised and moved by her confession.


    Any additional comments?

    I am definitely going to follow this story. Great job on the Narrator's part, well written. Kudos to the Author. Beautiful story. Well done!

    Would you listen to Under the Mistletoe with Me again? Why?

    Not really. Kinda straight to the point short story. Shows a couple in love and absolutely love family life. Didn't like the vulgarity, could have mellowed down a bit.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jule of course.


    Did Jennifer Mack and Eric Michael Summerer do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    I wish they didn't sound so much like they did in "Come Away with me" Jennifer sound too much like a teenager while Isaac like a mature mid 40's man!


    If you could take any character from Under the Mistletoe with Me out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Luke and Natalie, they're always in love!


    Any additional comments?

    The story was short and straight to the point. Beautiful couple, could be a little less vulgar knowing that children played a role in the story!

    Being confronted on the beach by a sexy stranger wasn't part of Natalie Conner's plans for a peaceful morning taking photos. And why on earth would he think she's taking pictures of him, anyway? Who is he? One thing’s for sure, he’s hot, and incredibly romantic, feeding Natalie’s wounded soul.

    Would you try another book from Kristen Proby and/or Jennifer Mack?

    I'm thinking about whether or not I should move on to Book 2 "Fight with Me". I purchased book 2 not realizing it was a series, I then turn around and got book 1.


    What was most disappointing about Kristen Proby’s story?

    No twist to the story, simply laid out too perfect. 2 weak people sharing a perfect life is not exciting at all. Everything happened so quickly and way too much boring sex. Do people really fall in love so deeply in such a short time? Respectable parents with disrespectful children, I don't get that part. I didn't like how she handled his fans and curse around his parents!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Can't think of any! If I must, I would say, when they met at the store!


    What would have made this romance irresistible?

    Less making out, less cursing. A little twist to the story. Them spending more time apart.


    Any additional comments?

    Since I already purchased book 2, I am hoping it will be less boring. It would have been a great story if so much didn't get crumbled up into one short story!

    F. Scott Fitzgerald’s classic American novel of the Roaring Twenties is beloved by generations of readers and stands as his crowning work. This new audio edition, authorized by the Fitzgerald estate, is narrated by Oscar-nominated actor Jake Gyllenhaal (Brokeback Mountain). Gyllenhaal's performance is a faithful delivery in the voice of Nick Carraway, the Midwesterner turned New York bond salesman, who rents a small house next door to the mysterious millionaire Jay Gatsby....

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Great Gatsby to be better than the print version?

    Of Course! Audio version was compelling, captured by every moment. Jake's voice was perfect.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story shows are people are in general. Gasby showed love to all, in spite of the Hypocrisy, Hate, Jealousy and selfishness of everyone around him. He was a true lover.


    What about Jake Gyllenhaal’s performance did you like?

    Love it! Jake's voice was perfect for the part. His good looks and character was a great fit.


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

    When Gasby saw his true love once more. His Shyness!

    Great Book!

    Life sucks. And, as soon as Sidney picks up the pieces something always knocks her back onto her butt. It's never pretty, but this time is different. This time pretty isn't even the right word. Peter is the personification of perfection. It's like he fell off his angel perch in purgatory, because let's face it - any guy that hot has got to be naughty. He was probably sent here to ruin her life.

    Would you try another book from H. M. Ward and/or Jessica Geffen?

    Not sure I would try another book from this author, this story is too dry. Narrator was boring, didn't add any substance to the story


    Would you ever listen to anything by H. M. Ward again?

    Not sure after this


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    A little too slow and boring. Voice doesn't fit in


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Damaged?

    Squirrel in bathroom


    Any additional comments?

    Boring cut dry story. Audible credit wasted. I am very surprise this had a 3 average, can't believe it made it to best seller.
