    Gideon Cross: As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn’t stay away. I didn’t want to. He was my addiction…my every desire…mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful…except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession.…

    Where does Reflected in You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Still love the story but disappointed with the second book in the series - not as good as book one. Hope the final book will meet my expectations.

    A series of negative events (an explosion, the possible dissolution of her business, a threatening visit from her sister's ex-boyfriend) rocks Kate McKenna's successful life in Charleston. When her best friend Jordan is sent to the hospital and scheduled for surgery, Kate heads up to Boston and promptly has a one-night stand with Jordan's brother Dylan. He continually checks up on Kate at Jordan's insistence, and soon discovers how many people want Kate McKenna dead.

    Would you listen to Slow Burn again? Why?

    Yes, great story and narration


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Katie


    What about Joyce Bean’s performance did you like?

    Excellent - she did not attempt a bad Boston accent as was the case in prior books in this series with other narrators. Not all people from the Boston area speak with an accent that is over exaggerated.


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

    n/a


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend the entire series (even with the very bad Boston accents of the first few audio books.

    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.

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

    The best thing about this book was Jill Redfeld’s excellent narration. Otherwise do not bother with this book.


    Would you recommend Entwined With You to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, it is a lot of repetitive fluff and very little new material.


    Which character – as performed by Jill Redfield – was your favorite?

    She does a great job with all of the characters.


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

    Thumps down.


    Any additional comments?

    I was very disappointed with this book. There was very little new plot. I feel cheated by the author (especially at the end when informed there would be two more books and not a final ending as was stated). The author had too much filler with repetitive information from the first two books and too many repetitive sex scenes. It is obvious to me that that the motivation was to make more money with this series. The best thing about this book was Jill Redfeld’s excellent narration.

    In her compelling, beautifully crafted novel, New York Times best-selling author Marie Bostwick celebrates friendships old and new - and the unlikely threads that sometimes lead us exactly where we need to go. Christmas is fast approaching, and New Bern, Connecticut, is about to receive the gift of a new pastor, hired sight unseen to fill in while Reverend Tucker is on sabbatical. Meanwhile, Margot Matthews’ friend, Abigail, is trying to matchmake, even though Margot has all but given up on romance.

    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    No change


    Was Ties That Bind worth the listening time?

    The performance of the Philippa character's voice had an annoying New York accent and she was from Boston!


    Any additional comments?

    I wish I was aware of the religious overtones before buying this book.
