    Published almost 10 years ago, Guilty Pleasures marked the debut of a writer who was destined to grow from cult favorite to a major bestselling author. Now, for long-time Anita Blake aficionados and newfound fans, Guilty Pleasures makes its debut in downloadable audio

    What made the experience of listening to Guilty Pleasures the most enjoyable?

    The story moved along. I listened to Danse Macabre first. I had never ever listened to this author or even liked this type of books or movies(hate scary movies) I found myself laughing like a mad woman in my garage after l arriving home and listened to the first CD.I was hooked. I started searching for the other books online to find out how Anita got involved with a vamp.(Gulity pleasures) I have now check out, downloaded or purchased several of the books in the series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Guilty Pleasures?

    Anita running out of the circus being chased and Jean Claude giving Anita the second mark(eyes)


    Which character – as performed by Kimberly Alexis – was your favorite?

    Anita


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

    No..


    Any additional comments?

    Love the series so far. Not to cool on all the sex Anita has, but she kick's butt and I hope learns to control the adure thing I hope Ms Hamilton stays clear of under aged sexual involment with Anita. The 16 yr old boy was a bit over the line.

    Some zombies are raised. Others must be put down. Just ask Anita Blake. Before now, she would have considered them merely off-putting, never dangerous. Before now, she had never heard of any of them causing human beings to perish in agony. But that’s all changed. Micah's estranged father lies dying, rotting away inside from some strange ailment that has his doctors whispering about "zombie disease". Anita makes her living off of zombies - but these aren’t the kind she knows so well. These creatures hunt in daylight, and are as fast and strong as vampires.

    What did you love best about Affliction?

    This is the kick a$$ Anita Blake back in rare form. The story was action packed and kept you
    on edge thru to end.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Anita was not caught up in a orgy. She was Anita we all came to love. The story was well developed and written. Anita was the action character she was created to be. The story line supported it's self did not have to be filled with mindless sex with multiple partners to attempt entertainment.


    What about Kimberly Alexis’s performance did you like?

    YES. She was in rare form. Nailed all character's voices perfectly. I could envision each character.


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

    Yes. I was captivated. I could not turn off story.


    Any additional comments?

    When I first saw book in store I knew I had to check it out. I'm hooked on Anita Blake, but was afraid to purchase. I had become discussed with Anita's sexual escapades. I get the succubus thing, but the books were becoming too graphic and Anita newest lover Jade was a turn off. I felt the book was now becoming politically correct. Anita into child exploitation and now heteroflexible?. I seriously did not think it was cool Anita picked up a 16 yr. old tiger. With all the children being sexually abused I think Laurel Hamilton did a disservice to the fight against exploitation of children with that story line. Say what you will, but when authors make something so taboo ok and acceptable it gives the impression all is good as long as the child wants to be involved.

    For successful African American businesswoman Zoe Reynard, finding the pleasure she wants, the way she wants it, is not worth the risk of losing everything she has: marriage to the man she has loved since childhood, a thriving company, three wonderful children. But Zoe feels helpless in the grip of an overpowering addiction—to sex.

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

    This is the first Zane book I've read. I have glanced at her book before and thought them to sexual and promptly gave the back to friend offering them to me.(Fifty shades took care of that notion) I took a chance on this one after reading narration on book cover at a local store. I was not disappointed the book moved along weaved, danced and kept me up at night trying to get to a stopping point. I was strung out. I had to force myself to stop listening and go to sleep. The story is well written, you don’t see the twist and turns coming. I would never have guessed the ending.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Addicted?

    The revalation to the doctor about her lovers


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

    No


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

    This chick is crazy or addicted


    Any additional comments?

    Really liked the book.
