I am a Serial MultiTasker. Pretty much daily while I am at work I listen to Audiobooks. Some books I have listened to 3 to 5 times. Luv it.

    Rachel Gibson's spunky New York Times best-selling romances are confectionary treats for listeners. Curvaceous Adele Harris is prepared to give up dating forever. But when she travels home to console her sister, whose marriage is on the rocks, she runs into ex-flame Zach Zemaitis - and passions are reignited.

    Story
    Would you listen to Not Another Bad Date again? Why?

    Yes I would listen again. This story was great. I didn't realize this book was a part of a series although the books are individual you learn about some of the other characters that are referenced and how they got to their "love".


    What did you like best about this story?

    At first I started listening and thought "oh my, audible screwed up this isn't the book I downloaded. It doesn't match the description at all." The book starts off strange (in a good way) and then turns out really awesome. I love how sometimes you have to go "home" to find yourself. The story (other than a few instances) seems very real, like this could happen to your best friend.


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

    Nicole Poole made me feel what Adele was going through and what she went through in the beginning. She made my heart break and beat out of my chest with anticipation.


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

    Yes this book was one I wanted to listen to all in one sitting...you want to know how it is going to work itself out and what is in store for everyone.

With Valentine out of the way, Clary thought she and Jace could finally be together--but when someone starts murdering the Shadowhunters who used to be in Valentine's Circle and leaving their bodies around New York City in a manner designed to destroy the new peace between Downworlders and Shadowhunters, she realizes the past can never be left entirely behind.

    Story

    I love these books and get so wrapped up in them. I am excited for the continuation of the story and hope the best for all the characters. When Ed Westwick reads it get lost in the story and he is such a perfect voice for these books, but when Molly Quinn reads it is like a violent shock and it always annoys me when she says certian words. It is like she didn't do any research on the books or didn't listen to the previous books before being the reader. I am so not looking forward to book 5 with her the reader.

    Eldest brother Marcus Armstrong considers the estrogen influx an irritating distraction. He's running a town, not a dating service! Reporter Alicia Randall thinks the Armstrong brothers are running a scam and she intends to prove it-even if it means seducing oh-so-sexy Marcus in the process. Sizzling sex and a hot story? Win-win! At least it is, until she falls for the guy. Will love trump betrayal when the truth comes out?

    Story

    This is my second time listening to Baby, Don't Go. I really love this story. Marcus is so stubborn and determined to keep his promise. Alicia is really screwed up in the head but doesn't think anything's wrong with that as she is driven to expose the truth about the Armstrong brother's attempt to resurrect their hometown of Sweetness Georgia.

    Alicia Randall a Feminist column writer wants to know why 100 single women would up and leave their lives to move to a town that barely has hot water. She is determined to find out what sinister things are going on and expose the town to be a fraud.

    This story really gets to me because not everything that seems too good to be true falls in that category. Marcus' character really makes my heart hurt. Too many people take on more than they should because they are trying to be responsible but not letting yourself live while trying to do the right thing is wrong.Their are many life lessons in this story and you just hope that Alicia will stop being a pain in the A**, and Marcus will ask for help.

    I love the Narrator for this series. It is really important to read them in order so you understand the evolution of the characters and even though some of the background is repeated it is only repeated in the perspective of the current main character. Knowing how each Armstrong brother deals with restoring life to Sweetness. I would move to Sweetness myself liking the quiet and beautiful surroundings (as I picture them to be). I will definitely read this series again... Also, their are 2 novellas that go along with this series:

    Novella: Baby, I'm Yours
    Book 1: Baby, Drive South
    Book 2: Baby, Come home
    Book 3: "This book"
    Novella: Baby, Hold On

    I am hoping for additional books in this series since their are a lot of characters.

So Zoe isn't fooled by the charm or good looks of this Ryan Baldwin when he shows up claiming to be related to Sam, the little girl the Costas family is about to adopt.

    Would you listen to Summer Lovin' again? Why?

    I would definitely listen to the story again. I actually read the book before I bought the audible version. I love the story.


    What other book might you compare Summer Lovin' to and why?

    I compared this book to Under the Boardwalk the first book in the series...unfortunately that book is not yet available in audio yet, but I was curious to see how the story would continue and would love it as much as the first one.


    What three words best describe Bernadette Quigley’s voice?

    Manly, smooth, and slightly British.


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

    Yes their were quite a few....but I am not going to share them since it might spoil the moments for someone else.


    Any additional comments?

    I wish their was a different reader because she made Zoe seem so much like a guy and not in a good way. She made her strong but she sounded like a dude. (Please excuse the reference) I also felt like I was getting whiplash between Ryan having a Boston accent and sounding British. When I read the book the voices in my head (lol) sounded a lot more "real". It is still an enjoyable listen and well worth it.

    First comes love, then comes marriage...At least, that was Gracie's plan at the ripe old age of 14. She loved 18-year-old heartthrob Riley with a desperation that made her a town legend. Even now that she's all grown up, the locals in sleepy Los Lobos won't let her forget her youthful crush. And how can she, when she's face-to-face with Riley at every turn? The one-time bad boy has come back to town seeking respectability - but the sparks that fly between them are anything but respectable!

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Falling for Gracie?

    The cakes. O M G!! I just want to eat the cakes.


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

    Yes I did want to know what happend. I wanted those who were doing wrong to get caught.


    Any additional comments?

    Healing is so important and just because you may have done some questionable things in your past doesn't mean that is who you are today. All a lesson people need to learn. We need to forgive ourselves for making those mistakes and use what we have done to make us better people and not let it define each of us.

    Would you listen to All Summer Long again? Why?

    Absolutely!! All the Fool's Gold books make you miss the characters. When you want to reconnect with them all you have to do is pick up the book and read it again. Or listen in this case.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of All Summer Long?

    I don't think their was a moment. I think the idea that they were both running from the perceptions of themselves was memorable. Lessons learned while enjoying the story are the best kind to learn.


    What about Tanya Eby’s performance did you like?

    I love Tanya Eby. She is my friend who tells me what's going on. I have read many books she has read and she always makes them enjoyable.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is similar to Pia's story. There were a few parallel's but it was still an interesting story for Charlie.

    Would you listen to Finding Perfect again? Why?

    Yes I have listened 3 times already. Pia is awesome and such a great person and Raoul is such a welcome character. It is nice to see what happens to himself since he is from the Sweet series. I will read again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Finding Perfect?

    When he offers to be her "buddy". It shows character and your heart squeezes.


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

    Yes. She is consistently awesome.


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

    Yes. When she agrees to "do it". You will understand after you listen. I don't want any spoiler alerts.


    Any additional comments?

    I cant get enough. These books have brought me into this genre. I didn't use to read stuff like this. Between these and a couple other authors I have gotten hooked.

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

    Yes, I have recommended and now she has started the series. The visuals and the history behind the story of the characters draws you in.


    What other book might you compare Almost Perfect to and why?

    Well since this book came first I don't know but after u have read all of the series books it is like Summer Brides (NOVELLA) and Only His. Thyself have a similar story having an issue with someone from there past and making things right.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When Ethan sees Liz for the first time after so long.


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

    Yes, when Ethan didn't give up and recognizes he contributed to the problem. That he is bnot just the victim.


    Any additional comments?

    Read Summer Brides after this one. Unfortunately it isn't an audiobook. You wont regret it though.

Charity immediately falls in love with all the storybook town has to offer – except its sexy, famous, world-class cyclist Josh Golden.

    Wedding bells are ringing in Fool’s Gold, but not for Nevada Hendrix. Her triplet sisters are engaged, and even her mother has a more active love life than she does. Determined to make a fresh start, she applies for her dream job, only to discover that her new boss is her first love. Maybe she could overlook the fact that they’ve seen each other naked, but she’ll never forget the way he broke her heart. Tucker Janack agrees to Nevada’s “business only” ground rules. After all, love is a trap that the construction millionaire has avoided his whole life.

    This is one of my absolutes favorite audiobooks. I love the characters and this story touched me.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love that Tucker and Nevada have a history that is perfect but they manage to be "real " about being adults.


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

    She is a great reader. I love her being the voice of the series. It would suck if she didn't read all the books. Some readers ruin books hut not Tanya.


    If you could take any character from Only His out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Tucker-because I imagine him being great at conversation and easy on the eyes.


    Any additional comments?

    Love this series. Wish their were more and I didn't have to wait so long between books. I have to re-listen because I get through the books so fast. I have read this book 3 times so far.
