    In the weeks following Aidan's betrayal, Emma has tried her best to move on. Ignoring his countless texts, voice mails, and flowers, she isn't sure she wants to be won back by him. But Aidan isn't going down without a fight - especially not until Emma lets him reveal the secret of his past that caused him to be so commitment phobic. But fate intervenes when premature labor forces Emma on strict bed rest for two weeks. Aidan steps forward with a shocking proposal.

    What disappointed you about The Proposal?

    did not like the hero - especially in the beginning of the book. He was a selfish jerk. Also would have been nice to have the characters history/back story in more depth at the beginning chapter of the book - instead of a short blip of his tragedy.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Katie Ashley again?

    maybe


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    not really

    An idyllic Caribbean vacation turns deadly when hostages are taken at one of Mexico's most popular Mayan ruins. The kidnappers believe the abduction will be a simple way to negotiate the release of a colleague from a Texas prison, but the stakes become much higher when they realize one of their hostages is the daughter of a powerful U.S. Senator and another, an ex-Army Ranger who has no intention of playing by the rules.

    Would you try another book from Kim McMahill and/or Christy Williamson?

    Kim McMahill yes Christy Williamson no


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kim McMahill again?

    Yes


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her voice was like fingernails down a blackboard....very annoying and got on my nerves. She had weird vocal tones when reading dialogue.


    Did Marked in Mexico inspire you to do anything?

    To skip the audio and read it on kindle...cause the reader is horrible and ruins the story.


    Any additional comments?

    A different reader would have made the story MUCH better!

    Would you try another book from Victoria Otto and/or Nancy Isaacs?

    no - as this book was way to religious for my liking.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    not sure


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    she did ok


    What character would you cut from Mail Order Bride?

    The first wife and 2 daughters...


    Any additional comments?

    This book was not to my liking it was too religious for my taste. It seemed to be mostly Bible/scripture readings and very little actual story. In fact the 2 main characters do not meet until close to the end of the book. The 'romance' part is very far fetched, they meet, marry that same day, he is rude to her and then all of a sudden that night they discover they love each other... the end. Very abrupt end. I would have liked more story between the 2 of them, and show how they actually get to like each other and discover they do love each other and want to start a new life.

    Trent Caldwell is the CEO of Caldwell Enterprises. He was the most arrogant, impatient, and rude man Brianna had ever met. Yet she finds herself madly attracted to him. At first, Trent didn't give Brianna a second look. The young woman who wore her hair like a 50-year-old, clothing that didn't fit her body, or compliment her natural coloring, and honestly had no idea of just how attractive she could be. But that all changes when Brianna fills in for Trent's personal assistant.

    Probably not


    What could Leslie North have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    She could have mentioned that is was NOT the whole story only part of the story. It was very disappointing to have the book end where it did and NO mention when the next will be out or the title.


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

    Narrator was ok


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

    Disappointment and anger that is was only PART of the story and not the whole story. I think it is stupid to end right in the middle and then have to wait goodness knows how long for more. I hate it when the story takes multiple books to tell it and really hate having to buy each part. It should all be ONE book and ONE cost!


    Any additional comments?

    Not worth the cost or credit!!! Skip the audio and read the paperback or kindle versions of this authors books in the series then you may actually find out the rest of the story

    Over the years, Donovan Kelly has fought relentlessly for justice, women and children always holding a special place in his heart. Working side by side with his brothers, Donovan has witnessed firsthand the toll it’s taken - physically, mentally, and emotionally - on his loved ones, and the innocent lives caught in the crossfire. What he never expects is for his next mission to happen right on his home turf - or for it to take a very personal turn.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would tone down Donovan's attitude a bit. He was so cool in other KGI books but in his own he was too focused on making the heroine and her siblings into being his family and less focused on seeing they had issues and to take things slowly. I also think the love and trust came way too early - especially from the little girl.


    Has After the Storm turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Nope


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

    I like this reader


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    This book was worth a listen, if only to keep up with the Kelly family. I like the other books in the series better, and I am looking forward to more Kelly/KGI stories.

    Gwendolyn Kidd has met the man of her dreams. He's hot, he's sexy, and what started as a no-names-exchanged night of passion has blossomed into a year and a half-long pleasure fest. Sure, it's a little strange that he only appears in her bed at night, but Gwen is so sure he's the one, she just can't turn him away…. Hawk Delgado knows more about Gwen than she could ever imagine. She's gorgeous, headstrong, and skittish about relationships. But Hawk is facing his own demons, demons that keep him from connecting with anyone.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Mystery Man to be better than the print version?

    Yes because of Kate Russell and her narration


    What did you like best about this story?

    So many things to like -- good plot, great characters


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

    Yes, she narrated Wild Man (another book in this series) and I really enjoy her narration of both books. I look forward to listening to other books she narrates.


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

    I really enjoyed the part where Gwen finds out what Hawk's name is. I also liked their 1st meeting in the daytime in Gwen's house. And of course loved how Hawk said "Babe"!


    Any additional comments?

    Good book, great narration! Other books in the series are good too Wild Man, Law Man and Motorcycle Man.

She's perfect in so many ways, immediately bonding with his little girl. Martina could be his future bride and a delightful stepmother...if only Cameron weren't blinded by his belief that Shelly, the gold-digging woman he's promised to marry, is pregnant with his child. After choosing Shelly over Marti at every turn, will he convince Marti she's his world and the only woman he wants?

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Well there is 7 hrs and 6 min of my life I can't get back.... what a waste of time listening to this horrible narrator!

    Would have enjoyed the book by reading it myself on my kindle instead of listening to this horrible audio version!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Going Twice?

    Hard to say as the narration was so crappy....


    How could the performance have been better?

    A different narrator! This person already butchered the previous book in this series, and now totally ruined this book for me as well. I hope and pray that when the 3rd book comes out A DIFFERENT NARRATOR will be used or I won't purchase it!


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, cause then I might will be able to see the story and not hear a piss-poor narration of it!


    Any additional comments?

    Sharon Sala is an EXCELLENT writer, and it is a shame that Book1 (Going Once) and now book 2 Going Twice have been butchered and ruined by this horrible narrator!

    For all Sharon Sala fans- skip this terrible audio version and read the paperback or kindle versions. MUCH BETTER that way!!!!

    Zoe is used to taking care of herself and has long ago accepted that if anything bad was going to happen, it was going to happen to her. So when she loses her job over something most bosses would probably be happy with and her life starts going down hill from there she doesn't expect it to get any better. She certainly didn't expect any help from the loud jerk next door, but then again she has nothing to lose so puts her trust in him and hopes for the best.

Finally rescued in the aftermath of the storm, no one is willing to believe a story as horrific as hers - until three FBI agents arrive on the scene...one of whom Nola knows very well. Tate Benton has been tracking the so-called Stormchaser serial killer for months, never expecting the trail might lead him home, or to the woman he cannot forget.
