    Would you rather know a truth that makes you feel hopeless, or keep believing the lies? Beloved and bestselling author Colleen Hoover returns with the spellbinding story of two young people with devastating pasts who embark on a passionate, intriguing journey to discover the lessons of life, love, trust--and above all, the healing power that only truth can bring.

    What did you love best about Hopeless?

    How strong the characters were, and it didn't seem to unbelievable. This happens everyday. So heartbreaking.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was an edge of your seat kind of book. It was hard to stop listening.


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

    No, but that would be my only complaint about the book. She wasn't horrible, but they could have chosen someone a little better for this good of a book.


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

    "I live you"


    Any additional comments?

    This was a very emotional book. Make sure you have a box of tissues!

    The last time Megan saw her youngest daughter, Emma, was on the little girl’s third birthday. Now, two years later, she sees her daughter’s face in every blonde girl she passes - at the grocery store, in car windows, at the doctor’s office. She is determined to find her daughter, but her commitment borders on obsession as she finds herself following these little girls who resemble her missing daughter. Her inability to move on after Emma’s kidnapping has distanced Megan from her friends and family.

    This book is not just another kidnapping book. It is much more. In the end, it is so heartbreaking. I cried so hard I had to pull over onto the side of the road to gather myself. So good, and I highly recommend it!!!

Just before Matt agrees to remove Elle from life support, the doctors discover that she is pregnant. Matt knows how much this child would have meant to Elle. Linney, Matt's mother, believes her son is blind with denial. She loves Elle, too, and insists that Elle would never want to be kept alive by artificial means, no matter what the situation.

    Absolutely!!! The book was perfect! The narrator was perfect for this book. Beautifully written.

    Would you listen to Falling into You again? Why?

    No, I think once was enough. Good, but not good enough to listen to again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Falling into You?

    Jasinda Wilder put so many memorable moments into this book. Her writing is so emotionally detailed.


    What does Gabriel Vaughan and Piper Goodeve bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Pure emotion. Some of the other reviewers said that Gabriel Vaughan was not a good fit for this book, but I thought he was AWESOME! I loved when it was his turn! Piper Goodeve was also very good too!


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

    Yes, but only because of all the good reviews. Maybe my expectations were way to high, and it only disappointed me in the end. Don't get me wrong, it was a good book. I read several reviews that said have tissues! I didn't cry at all. It was VERY sad, but I guess it didn't hit me like it did some of the others. If you want an emotional book, Hopeless by Colleen Hoover was really good. I can say if there were to be a second book to this, I don't think I would listen:(


    Any additional comments?

    All in all, I would say it's worth a credit!

    William has spent six years running from his past and the last eight months trying to rid his mind of the dreams that increasingly haunt his nights. Trapped in a world of false ambitions and feigned affections, William knows he's reached a breaking point and something's going to give. Maggie had lived her entire life without hope until one man showed her what it meant to be loved. He'd been her light in a lifetime of darkness. Six years ago, that darkness stole him away. Without him, she's surrendered herself to an existence she doesn't know how to escape.

    What did you love best about When We Collide?

    I liked the fact that there were two point of views. It might have been a little better if there were two narrators, but still good.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The love that the two main characters had for each other, even after being apart for so many years.


    What about J. Paul Guimont’s performance did you like?

    I thought he was just ok.


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

    Light at the end of the tunnel


    Any additional comments?

    Very good book. It's not a make you feel good book. It deals with real life tragedies that happen way too often. It's very sad and at times made me feel very sick. I'm glad there are books out there like this for others that go through abuse or know someone that is going through it.

    The worldwide phenomenon continues as Eva and Gideon face the demons of their pasts and accept the consequences of their obsessive desires.... From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn’t resist. I also saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside - so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat. No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I’d been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become.

    The Thinking Moms’ Revolution (TMR) is a group of 23 moms (and one awesome dad) from Montana to Malaysia who all have children with developmental disabilities. Initially collaborating online about therapies, biomedical intervention, alternative medicine, special diets, and doctors on the cutting edge of treatment approaches to an array of chronic and developmental disabilities, such as autism, sensory processing disorders, food allergies, ADHD, asthma, and seizures, they've come together into something far more substantial.

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

    YES!!! This book is for everyone, whether Autism is a part of your life or not! So informative!


    What other book might you compare The Thinking Mom's Revolution to and why?

    None that I can think of.


    Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favorite?

    There were so many!!! Every single story was so well written!


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    I wrote down so much information while listening. I will be looking into all of the ideas they talked about for treatment and therapy. My daughter was diagnosed almost a year ago today, and I had no idea about a lot of this stuff. She is in ABA and several other therapies, but as far as Homeopath and Biomedical treatments, I really didn't know much about. The thing that really got me though, was knowing that I am not alone. I am not a part of a support group, nor know anyone else that has Autism, so listening to this was so eye opening to know how many people are going through this same fight. It was very emotional. I cried and laughed. Thank all of you for writing this book. Thank you so much.
