    Welcome to Las Vegas, home of the Sin City Collectors. The job description is easy: Bring the offending supernatural in to the Boss and don't ask any questions.

    When the rough-around-the-edges Tate meets the high-class Lauren, he thinks she won't fit in at Bubba's. Yet there's more to Lauren than meets the eye, and Tate soon sets his mind on claiming her as his own. Before long, the desire burning between them is heating up the cold mountain air. But when violence strikes the town, Tate must reveal a dark secret to Lauren - one that may put an end to their sweet dreams.

    The main female character at first seems smart & determined. Unfortunately she soon proves to be a spineless & whining doormat. The main male character is a misogynistic, caveman type who can barely string together a complete sentence. The Narrator did a fine job. NOT WORTH THE CREDIT.

    The first storm comes from, of all places, the Minnesota zoo. Two large and very rare Amur tigers have vanished from their cage, and authorities are worried sick that they've been stolen for their body parts. Traditional Chinese medicine prizes those parts for home remedies, and people will do extreme things to get what they need. Some of them are a great deal more extreme than others - as Virgil is about to find out.

    I always look forward to a Virgil Flowers storyline and this one doesn't disappoint. Engaging and entertaining with great narration - I'd highly recommend it. If you haven't read/listened to any of the Virgil Flowers books, or the Lucas Davenport books, it's helpful and more enjoyable if you read them in order, but not required. ENJOY !!

    Jungles come in many forms. There are the steamy rain forests of the Burmese highlands. There are the lies and betrayals of the world of covert operations. And there are the dark and twisted thoughts of a man bent on near-global domination. To pull off their latest mission, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon must survive them all.

    What did you love best about The Jungle?

    One has to suspend reality to some extent to enjoy the Clive Cussler books, but once you're comfortable with his formula, the storylines are really engaging.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I'd have to give away some of the plot twists to explain how the plot kept me on the edge of my seat. Suffice it to say there were some interesting developments. I also enjoyed the addition of a new character to the Oregon Files Cast.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator was not a bad narrator, but he was NOT Scott Brick. It's very disconcerting as someone who has listened to all of the prior Oregon Files books, to suddenly have a different narrator performing ones known and favorite characters. I did not care for his rendering of Linda Ross' character's voice.

    Laine Tavish is an ordinary woman living an ordinary life in the small town of Angel's Gap, Maryland, as the proprietor of Remember When, an antique treasures and gift shop. At least, that's what everyone in Angel's Gap thinks. They have no idea that she used to be Elaine O'Hara, daughter of the notorious con man Big Jack O'Hara. Or that she grew up moving from place to place, one step ahead of the law.

    I'm a huge fan of JD ROBB's "In Death" Series but was a bit leery of the description of Remember When which was touted primarily as a Romance. I was very pleasantly surprised by the interesting plot and the great characters of Remember When. I thought the author did a good job of putting together the story arch from the Romance to Eve Dallas. Susan Ericksen's narration was top notch as always !

    Delivering a rare book to a valued customer is definitely part of mild-mannered archivist Anna Whitfield's job description. You know what isn't? Protecting her precious cargo from midflight theft by the very pilot who is flying her to Half-Moon Hollow...while trying to appear as unappetizing as possible to the only other passenger, a vampire. Undead bookstore owner Jane Jameson could be waiting a very long time for her book. Possibly forever.

    After seeing her maybe-mobster boss murder a guy, Delaney James assumes a new identity and pretends to be a mail order bride. She finds her groom-to-be living in a town that celebrates Halloween every day. Weird. But not as weird as what she doesn't know. Her groom-to-be is a 400-year-old vampire.

    When alpha female Galina Sudenko agreed to attend her distant cousin's birthday party, she wasn't counting on meeting the devastatingly handsome and powerful rom alpha Andrey Lupesco or having her sexy times with him interrupted by the murder of her idiot brother-in-law, Sergei. But such is life when your father is one of the most powerful werewolves within Seattle's supernatural Russian organized crime syndicate.

    What disappointed you about From Russia with Claws?

    Mostly the narrator's performance. I also found the book went over the top with the explicit sex scenes.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jacey Conrad and Gia Corona ? Why or why not?

    As much as I LOVE Molly Harper, I'm not sure I would give this combination another try - even with a different narrator.


    What didn’t you like about Natasha Volkov’s performance?

    Her voice was not well suited to the main character's personality and she read the non-sex portions in a tone of voice and inflection as if they were also sex scenes. It was just annoying.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. I always enjoy a good Molly Harper book because of the wit, sarcasm and likability of her female characters. Typically there's a good plot, a bit of the supernatural with some romance and just a hint of sensuality. This story's plot had promise, but there were far too many explicit sex scenes.


    Any additional comments?

    Find a new narrator for this series.

    A teen idol at 15, an international icon and founder of the Brat Pack at 20, and one of Hollywood's top stars to this day, Rob Lowe chronicles his experiences. Never mean-spirited or salacious, Lowe delivers unexpected glimpses into his successes, disappointments, relationships, and one-of-a-kind encounters with people who shaped our world over the last 25 years. These stories are as entertaining as they are unforgettable.

    I picked up this book based on Audible reviews and I was not disappointed. If you grew up during the 80s and have fond memories of that time, then you will likely enjoy this book. Rob Lowe did a GREAT job as narrator.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Robert says: "A Classic Mystery with Wonderful Characters"
    "Hard to put down"
    Overall

    If this were an actual book, it would be difficult to put down. As it was, I found myself sitting in the car a few extra minutes everywhere I went so that I could listen to it more. I've been told by those who read the book that the first 70 pages or so dragged for them. I did not find that to be the case listening to the book. The narrator does an excellent job ascribing differing voices to each character and maintains them consistently throughout the series. I would highly recommend this book if you like this genre.
